Ellie Goulding - Only You (Dopeshoes Dancehall Remix)


New remix for ya. A little something to practice your dutty wine to.

Little personal anecdote: It pretty much always happens that at some point during the making of a remix (or mix, or anything really) I experience a pretty extreme bout of loathing and doubt. Anyhow, this time I decided to take a walk. During this walk, I realized that the words of the song were in direct confrontation of this malicious little voice in my head. I think it was the only reason I was able to sit back down and fight my way through. Felt like we were on the same side.

New mix: Real Love


I started in on this mix and quickly realized that I had an awful lot of love songs in the playlist. Friendship love, city love, unrequited love, sex, heartbreak, you name it. Basically, real love. It’s not every song, but you’ll pick up on it. It was pretty unintentional. Not unlike love.

Enjoy. :)

Str8 West Coastin’ Rescheduled for Sept 17th

When New York City felt its first earthquake in over a century this past Tuesday, we thought it was a sure sign that this weekend’s West Coast takeover of Brooklyn was going to be on and popping like never before. Unfortunately, an old fashioned East Coast hurricane had to salt our game, and after a week of gloomy forecasts, Mayor Bloomberg has suspended subway service as of noon on Saturday. It is with sadness that we have to call it a wrap on Saturday’s BBQ, but we wouldn’t be the true players we are if we just took that shit lying down. We’ve moved the festivities to Saturday September 17th, and will be back in full motherfucking efizzect with all three resident DJs, a baller-ass menu featuring the best in LA-style eats, a domino competition complete w/ prizes from Flud Watches and Armory Survival Gear, and maybe even a few more surprises.

In the meantime, you can maintain your California state of mind with this here mix, which features enough classic music to bring the BBQ to you no matter where you are. So stock up on your Old English while you still can, turn it up loud, and we’ll see you on the 17th.

New podcast up, episode 3 of my "Bad Things Come in 3's (not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good)" series. This one features Hieroglyphics, Ghostface, and Jackson 5.

May he continue to inspire.
