New Mix from DJ Platurn


Dj Platurn of the Oakland Faders is a good friend of mine. He also happens to be one of the best and most creative DJs around. There are just not a lot of cats who will put so much time and care into making thier mixes intricate, clever, fun and encompassing. All in all I think with all the technology that is in the hands of modern DJ folks should really put some work into their mixes rather than slap them together in a day or two, and I salute the small handful of folks who go that extra mile. Hats off to my homie Luke.

Shoulda Let You Go: '09 Revision


One for the Bay Area - Keyshia's anguished vocals settled in nicely over the dreamy layers of that synth, the beat being Erk's Tha Jerk's recent big local radio favorite "Right Here".

Rated G Kid's Hip Hop Mix


Here's a child-friendly mix I put together in August for the Rated G kids hip-hop party over at the newly remodeled Fabric 8 space here in SF. They run a great community minded gallery over on 22nd St. featuring unique, quality goods by urban independent designers. Check out their website to see some of the fabulous local arts and crafts they purvey. Shout outs to Similak Chyld, Mr. E and Sonny Phono who all threw down quality g-rated slapps for the kids.

Glamorous Lifestyle - The Hard Way


New blend feat the Jacka acapella over the Done Deal slap - I have a weakness for that guitar organ combo.

Huayno En Cumbia


Let's take a little Cumbia break ~ unusual and heavy tune out of Peru. Got a bit of a raw 60s 'ska' feel to it. I really dig this style.
