Deep Thoughts From The Outhouse

outhouse

After a beautiful week in the woods with fam, I’m back in my LA studio catching up on the many gigabytes of new music that I recently pilfered from friends. In addition to daily swimming in ponds, jumping into waterfalls, picking veggies from the garden and catching fireflies at dusk, we celebrated the wedding of my own Ma Dukes to her new hubby. Best believe, I made the reception party get loose with a long set of classics (under a tent on a gorgeous grassy hill top). Belly full of fresh kale & arugula, I’m feelin juiced for this week’s parties, including my guest set at the raucous Tormenta Tropical party on Friday night alongside Paul Devro, Deejay Theory, Oro11 y mas. If you’re in the LA area, come through!

Flume :       Sleepless ft. Anthony For Cleopatra featured on the last MTR radio show, this crispy, soulful, downtempo joint is too good not to share

Mayer Hawthorne :       Her Favorite Song (Oliver Remix) I know, I shared new Mayer last week too, but this new single getting remixed by one of my favorite production teams around is making my week

Bosq (of The Whiskey Barons) :       Never Feel Cold ft. Mendee Ichi &       Paciencia De Jo ft. Tita Lima highly recommend this solid new full-length from one half of The Whiskey Barons (who you may remember, remixed a Capt. Planet song a couple years back)

Atoms For Peace :       Before Your Very Eyes &       Ingenue big names coming together rarely sounds this good. I was late on this, but big props to Thom Yorke, Flea & Nigel Godrich for a solid collab album

Madlib :       The Mad March apologies for the low quality rip, but it’s only available on 7″, so go get it

Rebecca Ferguson :       Glitter & Gold new soul, classic sound. Lookin forward to more from her

Hanni El Khatib :       Low badass indy psych-rock soul sounds, produced by Black Keys dude of dudes, Dan Auerbach.

Boom Boom Boom :       Out Loud love this group! Shouts to KCRW dj Aaron Byrd for hipping me to them. Seen them live twice now and I would bet good money that you’ll be hearing big things from them soon.

Lockah :       Platinum Blonde heavy head nod bizniz perfect for late nights, rainy days, or sexy time with that certain someone

Ginger & The Ghost :       One Type Of Dark (Ta-ku Remix) always happy to hear new sounds from this versatile Aussie beatsmith

  • how do i ask a girl out

    By showing restraint, maturity and sensitivity, you will be able to win her heart and asking her out will simply remain a formality that
    she will never be able to refuse. You can’t obviously call a girl that does not know you. Hit her with your best line and she’s going
    to think, “Really.

    Look into my homepage; how do i ask a girl out

Back East

freedom tower

Still feels like home: waiting for late night subways in sweltering heat, on platforms covered in the black funk of decades past, walking into art museums for the free AC, stumbling upon dope concerts in the park, the curious wonders of endless stoop sales. It was less than a handful of days, but I’m very glad I got to soak in some Summer in the city. Huge thanks to my man DJ Cato for putting together a great rooftop poolside bash in Soho on Sunday. It was amazing to catch up with so many old friends while taking in the gorgeous view- with a firework finish no less! Now I’m back out in the hinterland of New Hampshire for the 4th and beyond, but I had to give a little update with some new heaters I’ve been keeping in rotation. Also, big up to my homegirl in Manila DJ Christina Badkiss whose crates I jacked for a bunch of today’s tunes, expect a featured mix from her very soon!

Starfucker :       While I'm Alive catchy pop joint that verges on cheese, but keeps one foot on the funky side

Tuxedo :       So Good &       Do It new Mayer Hawthorne / Jake One collabo that is truly heaven sent. 80’s g-funk done right.

Bondax :       Gold (Moon Boots Remix) hipster house on the smooth side

Disclosure :       Help Me Lose My Mind &       When A Fire Starts To Burn without a doubt, one of the best albums of the year

Todd Terje :       Strandbar (Samba Version) so so good. New Summer anthem from the Nordic extended-groove meistro. The disco version of this tune is not to be missed either.

Stimming :       Funkworm tech house with a whole lot of flavor

James Fox :       Close Your Eyes beware, deep trance state is likely to occur around the 3.5 minute mark

ETML :       Bind Me funky UK bizniz from this young cat

Mark de Clive-Lowe ft. Omar :       Get Started (Full Crate Remix) great bouncey rework from Full Crate

Wretch 32 ft. Shaka :       Blackout not sure what to call this? Dancehall, UK funky, bass, hip hop… how bout just “good music”

Esto Es Candela Remix

PalenqueRMX-Cover450

Brand new official remix I did for Dutty Artz drops today as part of the excellent Palenque Records Remixed project. Rootsy Colombian folk music gets updated for the dancefloor by some of the heaviest names in global bass music (features tracks from So Shifty, Thornato, Geko Jones, Atropolis, Boima & more). I’m honored to be a part of this project, and the entire album is really top notch. Jeff Guerra wrote this highly informative article that goes into more depth about the background of Palenque music, how this album came into being, and even has interview snippets from some of the musicians involved (myself included). Also, check out the cool promo video, and please support by purchasing on iTunes if you dig the sounds!

Hello Summer

IMG_3861

I know I’ve been bouncing around a lot lately (Hawaii, Oregon, Chicago, San Francisco & Asia since January), but the trip I embark on today is different. Entirely non-work related. Unplugging completely. Gonna be sleeping in a tent on the beach actually. Focussing all my energy on surfing, snorkeling and eating tacos with good friends for the next 7 days. Haven’t been to Mexico since I was a teenager, so I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s my way of properly acknowledging a major transition and stepping forward into Summer on the good foot. No doubt I’ll be soaking up plenty of inspiration for new tunes along the way. I put together this super sunny playlist of tracks I’m feeling right now to help spread the early summer vibes.

Robin Thicke :       Blurred Lines ft. T.I. & Pharrell
I know it’s pop as all hell, but this is too good to snooze on. Major jacking of Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up”, but you won’t hear me complaining.

Laura Mvula :       Green Garden (Osage Remix)
better than the remix I was going to make. So so good.

Andrea Calabrese :       Africa Intense (Bress Mix)

Juice, Mess & Simone Farina :       Corazon (Fanelli Farina Mix)
shout to DJ Cato for this heater

Machel Montano :       Vibes Cyah Done (Jus Now Remix)
shout to DJ Nadi for this future soca bomb

Bunji Garlin ft. Nigel Rojas :       Differentology

Dub Gabriel :       My Gun (Shotnez Remix)

Popcaan :       Raving

Dieze Tigrona :       Prostituto ft. Jaloo
sweetest sounding trap-baile-funk ode to a hooker ever recorded

Mop Mop :       Kamakumba &       Phantom Of The Panther
shout out to Dangerscouse for the heads up

The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band :       Pimp
and big up my man Soul Cocina who turned me onto this

Elephant & Mosquito Remix

Afrobeat, Gumbo Funk, Zongo Junction, Captain Planet, Remix, Brooklyn, Fela Kuti, Antibalas

ZongoRemix-Cover450

Happy to announce the release of this latest remix I produced for the Brooklyn-based 10-piece afrobeat ensemble Zongo Junction. Check out the 7″ single they are also dropping today on Primary Records. They have a pretty classic sound that pays homage to Fela, Tony Allen & other afrobeat originators, but I mixed in some heavy synths and hip hop drums to give it that extra head nod bounce. It’s starting to feel like Summer around here, so I hope this one gets spins at a BBQ near you. Big shout out to the always tasty OkayAfrica.com for giving some early love to the track too. Free download, get it while it’s hot.
