Brooklyn’s Shadwbw came through the show back in June for a guest set, but producer Icky Doome (1/2 of the group) has a new live set he’s been working on, and will be joining me on Thursday for a live radio debut. Sounds like he’ll be bringing some friends, likely including vocalist / namesake Shadowbox, and who knows who else, so it should be a great time. You can preview the live set via a masked YouTube clip below.
I know we’re jumping the gun a little bit on the warm weather jams, but summer’s all in the mind anyway, isn’t it? Here are two new re-edits I put together of some tracks that I’ve been playing on vinyl, and wished they hit just a little bit harder. Nothing too complicated, mostly just adding some low-end, extra percussion, and teasing out the intros a little bit. I dropped both of these in my recent CCC Podcast. Enjoy the tunes!
Longtime listeners to the show will remember when Canblaster dropped an exclusive set about a year ago while in town for a gig w/ Trouble & Bass. His set remains one of the best live DJ sets we’ve had, but the four-man tag team set we have for you this week courtesy of his Club Cheval crew ups the ante even more. As a team, Canblaster, Sam Tiba, Myd & Panteros666 deliver a full on tear-out assault of house, hip-hop, Jersey club, bass music, and anything else they can get their filthy hands on. Take a deep breath before getting into this one, because it goes DEEP. Check out the exclusive set + interview Thursday night February 2nd at midnight on East Village Radio. Continue reading
Brookyln Radio plays host to shows and mixes from a TON of friends & family, including Bastard Jazz, Subatomic Sound System, The Rub, Jubilee and many more, so when they asked me to contribute a guest mix, I was excited to be in such good company. It gave me the opportunity to put together some of my favorite pieces of music in a bit more polished form than the live mixing I do on East Village Radio. I was also happy to be able to add some mix in some less beat-centric music, especially the amazing solo saxophone performance from Colin Stetson in the middle of the mix. I’m pleased with the results, to the point that it makes me want to consider podcasting again. I don’t see that happening anytime too soon though, so in the meantime stream this one below, and if you need more short-form mixes, I posted my previous podcast series The Raw & The Crooked on my Mixcloud page.
Tonight it’s my pleasure to welcome, for the first time in New York, a double helping of UK dub & reggae culture. Mungo’s Hi Fi are the founders of the Scotch Bonnet label, and purveyors of some of the heaviest sound system style reggae and dub you’re likely to hear on any continent. They’ll be joined by Soom T, known for her work on the excellent Jahtari label. Both artists will be performing on Friday 10/7 along with Subatomic Soundsystem, Liondub & Dub War’s Dave Q at Dominion in the East Village, but you can get a preview when you tune in to the show.
Can’t get enough of that gangsta shit. Yeah, that’s right me and the homies DJ Eleven and DJ Dopeshoes are back with another edition of Str8 West Coastin, bringing a bit of California love to the East side. And this time we thought we’d put together a mix of some of our favorite West Coast classics to get you in the proper mind state. Plug in, let your mind drift, and see you this Saturday at Project Parlor in Bed-Stuy. BBQ all day, and half price drinks til 4:00 PM, so don’t get caught slippin.

DJ Ayres is a Brooklyn don. The Rub, his monthly party with with DJ Eleven & Cosmo Baker, is an institution. He’s one of the most versatile and in-demand DJs in the city, and his debut single of solo productions, I’d Fuck Me, is coming out this week on T&A Records, which he runs with DC DJ/Producer Tittsworth. I’ve been playing tracks from the single for the last couple of weeks, and it’s super solid. And if you know like I know, expect nothing but a top-notch DJ set to rock your party, your automobile, or even your iPhone.
Nate Mars is an NYC producer who you may have heard me speak about before. In fact, I see Nate every day, as we work together, but that’s not why I like his music. His solo album Concentric Circles is one of the first places I heard Jahdan Blakkamoore, which is reason enough to pay attention, though he’s also responsible for some really fantastic remixes.
