DJ Zimmie - Grill 7 Art

 

7 years strong, “You Gots To Grill” is the essential soundtrack for your backyard BBQs. Inspired by the cookout in Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin’ But A G Thang” video, it delivers a perfectly marinated mix of hip-hop, funk, soul, samples and a few new flavors to keep the party on till the break of dawn. Put a fresh crease in your khaki suit and make yourself a plate.

 

Shout out to my ace Dave Fogg and the Mad Decent crew for releasing this mix on their Mad Decent World Wide Radio podcast.

Vice Versa

 

Does the “golden rule” apply in the world of nightclubs and DJing?  I tried a little experiment recently on Craigslist and some people felt some type of way.
