Turkey Day!

I want to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving and safe travels. I will be out of town on Thursday and Friday, hence I will not be djing, however I am returning just in time to Dj at Fly on Saturday. Hope to see you all there.

Rediscovered Classic and New Classic!

So I was scrolling through my IPod the other day and ran across this older Roots track called " The Hypnotic Remix" or " The 'Notic". Believe it or not, I think it is from the Men in Black Soundtrack. This track is dripping with soul! In a time where Neo-Soul oversaturated the market, and dread-locked sandal wearing poets were on every corner, this track rises above the crap! With guest vocals by Erykah Badu and D'Angelo (singing a classic Earth, Wind, and Fire hook), it's a wonder how this track flew under the radar.
The Legendary Roots Crew - The Hypnotic Remix

One of my new favorite tracks is on one of my new favorite albums. Little Brother (Phonte and Big Pooh) have dropped their latest album Get Back (big up on the ol' EPMD font!), and without fail, Little Brother manage to create yet another hip hop classic. In an ocean of "Wipe me Down", "Aye Bey Bay" and "Crank that!", Little Brother is breath of fresh air for those of us who are suffucating on Bull S#*t! Check out "Good Clothes", and support good music!

Add this to your to-do list!!

I know it's been a while since I've posted something on apologies. Things have been very busy. This past week was GREAT!! The clubs were poppin!

On the 17th, there is an event at LIV that is NOT TO BE MISSED. Super Dj's/producers/cultural icons Spinna and Bobbito are bringing their critically acclaimed tribute to Stevie Wonder show to Club LIV!! If I wasn't working, I would be there with bells and whistles on!! This event is strictly for music lovers and people looking for something new!!! I applaud MN8 for consistently bringing good acts to DC...Bravo!

This is the kinda show I wish we could have in DC on a regular basis.....Hey... That's not a bad idea.. hmmmmmmmmm

On another note...I know I've been promising more downloadable mixes, and I will deliver... I'm planning on going back in the lab to records a strictly Funky Breaks/House/Biale/Everything in between mixtape soon which will be available on my website. So please, bear with me!
