Tis The Season To Throw A Party

Cooking with the fam. Eating pie. Drinking with old friends. Eating cookies. Staying in bed. Eating some more. I’m spending my holidaze the right way, hope you are too. Back in snow-covered Brooklyn for another week and damn it feels good to be home, even if they can’t get it together to plow the streets. For anyone else in the NYC area, I’m DJ-ing at my second home BEMBE tonight in Williamsburg and then tomorrow I’ll be doing a set with Bonobo, Nickodemus and DJ DRM at Franklin Park. I still haven’t put together any “Best Of 2010” lists, but today’s tracks are all goodies that I’ve had in rotation a lot lately. There’s no remedy like big bass and tropical heat to help thaw out that bitter winter chill.
