Groove Merchant 20th Anniversary Party TONIGHT

At Elbo Room in SF, with very special guest DJ. Hit me for $5 list & get there early, it will be crazy!

Soul: What Can I Do

Tough to scoop midtempo cut by Jean Shy with arrangements and writing help from legendary Harvey Fuqua and his cohort Vernon Bullock. Bullock was the creator of New Birth, producer of the Younghearts' 20th Century albums and writer of quite a few solid tunes.
What Can I Do I'm So In Love With You

New Edit/Remix: Mary J answers "All I Want Is You"


Cosmo Baker - Love Break 3

Two dope mixtapes out this past week that actually got me pretty hyped - this is the first, made by a dude who obviously really loves soul music on it's own terms. This is the 3rd chapter of his already legendary "Love Break" series. Respect and thanks to the homie Cosmo.

New Blend: Come Around/Deuces

Here's something I made yesterday to the smell of apple pie baking from scratch.
Collie buddz - come around (b.cause doouces blend) by djbcause

New Disco Hyphy Remix: Do The On One

Here's one I've been holding for a minute, as usual I added a few chords with the Juno 106 for added effect.

Rest in Peace - 1940-2010

80s Synth/Bay Rap Edit: No Hoe Remix

Here's a new take on the old D-Lo joint, featuring Beeda Weeda, E-40 and The Jacka. Super Disco Hyphy still in the buildin'.

New Remix: Pourin' Up feat. King Most

My good friend King Most gave me this MJ beat flip a long time ago when we were doing the weekly Side Effect party. I was doing a little live blend with it for a minute but it slipped my mind 'till recently. Hooked up some added percussion and fills, etc to keep it moving. Thanks to that dude Patrick for sharing the instrumental, check out his TUMBLR for more goodies.
Pourin' Up (don't stop the bounce version)

Break/Edit - I Wash My Hands of the Whole...

Here's a breakbeat tool I made for fun while ripping some old records in the to-go box...always loved this Black Sheep- sampled New Birth beat but it's pretty quiet on lp and kind of falls apart. I extended it out, ran some low pass for more bass, added a few fills, etc.
I Wash My Hands Of The Whole Damn Deal...(edit/break)
Edit: I just uploaded a newer version - the one I put up last night had a few things I didn't like about it so I made a few minor changes.

Edit: Ignition Remix/Spread Love + Earfuzz

My homie Chuckdafonk was kind enough to post an old edit of mine on the earfuzz site, along with a scorching old J.J. Barnes psych-soul joint that's well worth checking out. There's an abundance of Parliament/Funkadelic related nuggets on his site, I mean for real - the dude must possess a P-Funk P.H.D. The ignition remix is from 2006, I think. Big up Chuck!

Shake That Monkey/Super Disco Hyphy

New but somewhat crusty edit from that old disco hyphy cd, peace to the friends Big Jacks and David Enzo. Art by the good homie Tsega Dinka.

Money To Blow - Transatlantic/Dubstep Version

I was playing around the other day and came up with this. I like it!

New Remix: OMG - Rage! Rework

Hey friends! Here's a brand new new Ursher remix, big ups to Pony P for hooking up the Chromeo record. And also to my dude Kutkorners for the studio acappella. I guess I had nothin' but the habit, haha. Thank you!
Usher feat. will i. am - oh my gosh (b.cause rage! rework) by djbcause

New Edit: If This Isn't Love

Uptempo flip of J-Hud's very lovely tune. I really despise working with DIY acapellas but I had no choice but to go though with it - there was nothing else available out there and I loved the way the track was working out.
If This Isn't Love (undercover rework)

Track The Movement: Tonight + new RMX

We are playing rap records all night tonight at Showdown in SF. Now if only I had a hand-truck.

And here's a new version of the dude Z-Man's "Cupcakin'" - one of my first MPC-based remixes, hopefully many more to come.

Tomorrow night the friends from The Hydrilla are throwing a dope show - it's going down at Slim's in SF, featuring performances by Yelawolf, DJ Quest and Z-man. Get your tickets now!

Edit: Bedrock/Peculiar

Sorry for the lack of reworks lately, I've been slammed with real world paper chase related maneuvers and really haven't had any time to make music. Here's something older that I was gonna trash, but after listening again decided it was worth salvaging.
Peculiar (bedrock edit)
Other than that, I just wanted to express big thanks to those who take the time to check this blog. Have a great weekend!

Jesse Boykins III - Tabloids: Max Kane Remix

The funk brother Max Kane has put together this very chunky J.B. remix and was kind enough to share it with us. Grab that...just use an oven mitt or somethin'. Hot off the press!

The Music All Is Lost For Now

DJ Day in the Bay!

Tonight in SF, at Elbo Room with King Most:

Tomorrow night in Oakland at Luka's:

'Nuff Said!!!!

Remix: Rock The Boat

Here's a new Bay Area/West Coast friendly version of baby girl's "Rock The Boat" over some "Game Recognize Game" maneuvers. JT is a somewhat overlooked master of the 90s g-funk sound and has banged out some Frisco classics. Check the extensive resume.
Rock The Boat (game recognize rework)
I've messed with these La vocals before, go here for the older version.

New Remix: Right Here + F.A.M.E. Slap

Here's a little treat from the crew to you! Max Kane sent me over this dope F.A.M.E. (Fresh Analog Music Experience) beat and I tinkered around and came up with an R&B edit.

Right Here (F.A.M.E. + B.Cause rework)

The instrumental is going to be featured on an upcoming compilation being put out by the homie J-1 (Animal Collective/Master Blazter). F.A.M.E. is Max Kane, Teeko and Malaguti.
Stay tuned for more projects with them in the near future.

Quick edit on the lovely J. Carn tune...might develop this further when I have time.

One from a few years back, still comes in handy sometimes.
Hey, if you are in SF come check out MR E, Relly Rels, Vinnie Esparza and myself at the ELBO ROOM tonight for "Treat Em Right"! We play soul, funk, latin, reggae, hip-hop, disco, and all that good stuff. Let me know if you would like to be on the guest list.

So Fresh, So Clean (let's get it on reprise)

No Diggitee Vs. Khayree/Luka's Tonight

Here's a blend I've dropped live a few times but wanted to record so I could get the arrangement just right. Mista B and myself are playing TA-DOW! at Luka's in Oakland tonight...this is the kind of stuff we play there - classics, r&b, bay area jams, rap, etc. If you are in the east bay this evening give me a holler and I'll throw ya on the list.

No Diggitee (sick wit this blend)

I Can Love You/I Need A Dollar + DJ Theory

Here's a brand new blend with the Aloe Blacc beat.

EDIT: Actually this is the homie DJ Theory's version of the instrumental to "I need a dollar" - peep out his take on that and C.R.E.A.M. over here. I try to keep up but damn! :D

I Can Love You (i need a dollar blend)

Recommended Listening


Remix: Gangsta Luuv

Pretty comfy fit over the "corn flakes" riff - I stripped the middle verse down to drums and played out some new key chords.

Edit: Say Ahh/Satisfaction

Love this Dre beat. Crafted some lil' drum fills, etc to keep it moving...

Say Aah (satisfaction edit)
