Monday Jazz .:Mar 10 09:.
About a year and a half ago, I got this email from a guy name Paulius
from Monday Jazz, asking if I'd be interested in making a mix for their
site. They're based out of Vilnius, Lithuania. I guess they got a
hold of one of my mix CD's somehow. Anyway...I was happy to oblige,
and they actually have a bunch of great mixes up on their site. Check
them out at mondayjazz.com.
A link to my mix is down below, as well as their most recent one from my boy Nerstylist out of Union City. The third one is from one of HGB's favorite beatsmiths, Joe Beats. Click to listen; right click and "save link as" to download.
New York Trip - Day ? .:Mar 10 09:.
Too lazy to remember what days were what in these photos, so I'm just going to post 'em.
Our station in Harlem.
Top of Rockerfeller Center.
Prettiest looking dish...not the tastiest. Don't have pictures of those cause they got eaten up hella quick!
New York Trip - Day 1 .:Mar 05 09:.
7am. Didn't have a ride to the airport, so we took a walk to the BART.
They had a cool comic book exhibit at SFO.
Halftones are fun.
Our diggs in Harlem.
Made a couple new friends. Bon Chon has THE BEST Korean style chicken wings...
Faded, sloppy tourists.
Got a couple drinks, and a game of pool at Max Fish to cap the night off. That guy sitting down in the background is Earsnot.
EDAN in the juke box!? WHAT!
3am. Back uptown on the subway.
Late night maintenance.
Day 1 - THE END
The Bay in 2 Days .:Mar 05 09:.
Existence 76 and Argonaut came up to the bay last weekend for various
reasons, and to kick it with Romali, Daeta, and myself, and to support
KIDRAGON at his gig at the "4 One Funktion" at the Elbo Room in the
city. First day into the trip, we met me up in Berkeley at Amoeba to
pick up some wax. I found this one for Romali...but he didn't seem to
be interested. Go figure.
Day 2 - Checked out the "Cut & Paste" digital design tournament. Think of it like a big B-boy battle like Freestyle Session or B-Boy summt...but instead of B-boying...they are doing digital design. 2D, 3D, and motion graphics. It was pretty interesting. That's Existence 76 on the right workin' the "Dough D". The poster was designed by my boy Nam.
Next stop was Elbo Room in the Mission. Elbo Room is my favorite bar in the city (so far). They always have great music playing there. That night KIDRAGON killed it. Check the blog below or on his page for more on the Event.
No such thing as a 24 hr. taco shop in Fremont...or carne asada fries...had to settle for Denny's. Recorded a podcast the next day. It's the last one on the player on the podcast section of the site if you want to check it out. (Argonaut, Daeta, Existence 76, Jo_iLL, Romali)
