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.

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

Brooklyn’s Jahdan Blakkamoore gets a lot of love, but not half as much as he deserves. Simply put, he’s one of the most talented and versatile performers in the game, and he’s a long way from getting his true due. I had the pleasure of working with JD & his Dutty Artz crew on pushing his debut solo album Buzzrock Warrior, and was constantly taken aback by his constant creativity & humility. He constantly gives his all, coming up with creative ways to master everything from dancehall chatter to hip-hop boasts (see this clip w. Smiff N Wessun, filmed by your truly) to classic reggae to R&B crooning. (video after the jump…) Continue reading
