Lambo Mercy: DJ AC Guest Post

lambo1

We’ve got a guest post today from my good friend- Los Angeles’ very own DJ/hustler extraordinaire, Aaaron Colbert. I believe the last time he shared tunes here, it was a group of selections off his official mix for Bentley. Well this time he was asked to do an official mix for Lamborghiniwhat gives?!? Check out the full mixtape here (which provides a nice deep-house cruising soundtrack even if you’re pushing a vintage Honda). His selections should please all the house heads and club kids out there, take a listen…

Until The Ribbon Breaks :       Spark

The Magician :       Sunlight ft. Years & Years

Hippie Sabotage x Tov Lo :       Stay High (Alex Aark Bootleg)

SNBRN ft. Kaleena Zanders :       California Love (Summer Mix)

Gorgon City :       6AM ft. Tish Hyman

AlunaGeorge :       Outlines (Danny T Rework)

Mr. Probz :       Waves (Roter & Lewis Edit)

Guest DJ: Aaron Colbert

aaroncolber

I was lucky to meet Aaron Colbert pretty soon after I first made my way to LA. We swapped some music and traded a few DJ stories and I quickly realized this guy knows just about every club booker & lounge manager in town. He runs his own DJ booking company and does custom soundtracks for venues- basically most DJ’s dream job. He just finished up his latest mix for Maserati, so if you decide to test drive one of the new Ghibli’s or GranTurismo’s, you might be listening to his selections. I asked him to pick out a handful of his favorites from the mix and let us know a little about them. In his words: “Every track I selected has a touch of sexiness, power, and sophistication- giving you a sense of nighttime driving.”

Kate Boy :       The Way We Are (Bixel Boys Remix) Every remix these guys put out is genius!  I was honored to have them rock out in my DJ booth during the FORD Models event last year

Amine Edge & Dance :       Lost
I had been waiting for someone to make Frank Ocean’s amazing hip hop/soul track into something more club playable

Gorgon City Feat. MNEK :       Ready For Your Love By far my favorite House track of this year! I first discovered Gorgon City when my girl Yasmin sang on the track “Real”.  Very talented artist.

Ayer :       Circle Down (Keljet Mix) When I heard this track I had goosebumps.  That’s when you know it speaks to you.  100% Nudisco Vibe.

Tensnake Feat. Fiora :       See Right Through Tensnake’s new album is about to drop.  Watch out because from what I have heard, it’s going to be massive!  Soulful, beautiful, alive…

Lorde :       Team (Panic City Remix)
Panic City really killed this remix.  Lorde is definitely artist of the year.

Ghosts In The Machine

ghost

In preparation for my favorite holiday, the same All Hallow’s Eve that will forever remind me of drive by egg-ings and TP in the trees (probably more than horror flicks and candy), I’ve put together some dark & devilish tracks to share. I skipped over the staples that you will hear played at every party you go to this week, and instead chose to focus on some club joints that have a generally spooky vibe (rather than full-frontal Ghostbusters remixes). A lot of recent UK bass & funky house stuff has that freaky darkness that I like, so there’s a few of those tunes in here. Probably not crowd pleasers unless you’re at a warehouse rave, but then I suppose that’s all the more reason to find yourself a warehouse rave!

Screamin Jay Hawkins :       I Put A Spell On You (Jeremy Sole Remix) nice flip on an old school freaky classic by my homie Jeremy, also helpful DJ tool taking you from 105bpm to 118.

DJ Disse :       Real Roots (Electric Bass Mix) random discovery by this guy. Sometimes one song leads you to another, which leads you to another…

The Layabouts      As Long As You Believe (Jullian Gomes Remix) with vocals from Omar, and a nasty acid tasting bassline, this one is right in the pocket for me

Drake ft. Sampha      Too Much (Jessie Andrews & Jason Burns Remix) completely removed all of Drake from this song, and it works so well. Another really nice usage of funky filtered synth bass that has late night trippiness all over it- produced by a 21 year old porn star + this guy!

Gorgon City      Intentions ft. Clean Bandit LATE NIGHT STEEZ

Lxury      J.A.W.S. co-produced by Disclosure so you know it’s dope

Seal      Crazy (Bixel Boys Remix) ok, so this one’s not too “dark & spooky”, but it seemed to fit in the playlist still. More heaters from these dudes

Dabin ft. Bijou      Awakening (Kwikfiks Remix) are you not still on one? Pop another cause it’s just getting deeper thanks to Canadian beat maestro Kwikfiks

Fake Blood :       Mars now we’re back to full on freaky shit. Don’t get enough opportunities to drop this oldie but goodie, this week is the exception.

Duck Sauce :       Big Bad Wolf maybe the most obvious choice for this list, but gottdamn this one is good! So simple and effective, turns even the meek ones into werewolves when the time is right.

    Huge!! I am going nuts listening to these golden cuts.

  • manliano

    Love that you included Fake Blood. Killer track.
