I cut this mix for my recent tour of Australia with Pete Rock and DJ Premier.  (I was holding out on you for a bit to encourage people to buy CDs at the shows.)  This mix has hip-hop, funk, rock, twerk, trap, house and more.  Bump it in your Jeep and come see me at a show for a hard copy.

Every year, the Mattress Factory Urban Garden Party is my favorite event to play.  This year was double fun because the theme was “Soul Factory: Motown at the Museum“.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some funk & soul.  I got to throw down a mix of funk, soul and breaks to warm up the party for my man from Canada, The Gaff .  The party boasted over 1,400 guests and raised over $265,000 for the Mattress Factory’s educational outreach programs.  I still have the set from this party, maybe I’ll post it if you’re lucky…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… The Mattress Factory Urban Garden Party is the best party in the entire city of Pittsburgh every year.  This year was a blast and the party helped raise over $220k for the museum’s unique artistic and education programs.  The party has a different theme every year and people went full-steam on this year’s Alice at the Factory concept.  I had so much fun and hopefully you were there to have a great time as well.
