What’s up y’all!! Lawd, it’s August and all the Leos are out roaring – I see y’all, LOL! We want to extend our sincere gratitude for all the support for these mixes! The response has been amazing! We appreciate the support and the love and we DON’T take it for granted!  Once again, we got some HEAT for y’all so let’s get right down to business, shall we?

Our featured song for this month is :  Chelsea Como, Jackio, Shino Blackk – TTYD (Blackkdraft Mix). First of all, we’ve picked a song, but what we really want to discuss is Producer/DJ Shino Blackk! Seriously, he’s been putting out amazing work and repping Philly HARD, and this is no exception! In a world of Soulful House tracks that tend to sound depressingly similar to everybody else’s Soulful House track – Shino’s take on Soulful House is a BREATH OF FRESH AIR! “TTYD” (Things That You Do) – though obviously Soulful House – actually FLEW to the number one spot on Traxsource’s Afro Chart (labeling matters). Charted and supported by Tony Humphries, Mr. V, OVEOUS, Lenny Fontana, Oscar P – pretty much everybody! You name em – they charted it! So if you’re the one person on earth who hasn’t purchased it – go do it now and apologize to yourself and your dancers, LOL!

Check out more of Shino’s work right here!

Another song I’d like to shout out is Byron J. Moore, Ian Friday – Starchild (Libation Vox Mix by Ian Friday)…listen, when Ian Friday came to The Funktion House here in Brooklyn last month for a live appearance on The Network BK last month (hosted by Hector Romero, Kelly Diniz, and Beatport), he played this and I was DONE! I nearly lost my mind. This remake of the Level 42 classic was beautifully executed (I think Ian mentioned he worked with Level 42 themselves on this? IDK, but he is a GENIUS and Byron slayed this vocal).

Speaking of Hector Romero, funny story: just a few weeks ago I put out a DJ APB (All Points Bulletin) for a track I had heard in many MANY clubs but couldn’t put my finger on the title, so I put up a YouTube video of the iconic Derrick Extravaganza voguing DOWN to it. First, turns out I actually HAD the track but didn’t know the name of it (LOL). Second – it also turns out that Hector actually voiced the infamous words “Necessito Maaaaaaaasss” on the classic track in question – “The Colombian Drum Cartel – The Shipment”  !! I know, right??? How cool is that? Surrounded by all this legendary talent

….oh, and watch out for Jon Mavek.  He’s not here to play with y’all. Don’t say you haven’t been warned, LOL…

We got a bunch of other treats on here for you, too. We got some wicked work from Deva Mahal along with DJ Spen and Reelsoul, some HEAT from Timmy Regisford, Norty Cotto and Oscar P, Fat Nek, The SyntheTigers – oh, just get into it already, LOLOL!

 

Out Now!

 

 

As usual – with songs that I consider “edits”, I also credit the original artist because – let’s be honest – if it wasn’t for them, you wouldn’t actually have a track, so – you know *shrugs*.

Enjoy! 🙂

The Zodiac Thump! Season 2, Episode 2!

The Zodiac Thump, Episode 2

What up, folks! As you can see – I’ve changed my mind about my previous mixes (I do this often – it’s a Libra thing, LOL). I originally planned to delete them (and I have deleted some), but decided to leave most of them up (since they are still being downloaded and streamed!), so continue to enjoy and download them at your leisure!

Now back to the present – here’s another installment of the all new Zodiac Thump – Episode 2! We start this one off with a remix from Brooklyn’s own DJ/Producer/Remixer Mikki Afflick (Soul Sun Soul, Afro Sun). Nina Simone once said, “You can’t help it. An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.” – and Mikki does just that with her remix of Groove Junkies’ “We Rise” with Opolopo and vocalist Solara! As usual, links for this and most material used will be made readily available in the playlist (just click on the titles!). We’ve got new music from Deep Sole Syndicate, DJ Romain, Toshi, and others…BUT – there’s one thing…

RANT: There are many MANY producers out here taking classic tracks, re-editing them, and selling them as original works (such tracks are marked with an asterik *). These tracks have gone way beyond sampling to the point where said track would cease to exist absent the original track used. My solution?

Well, as you will see in the playlist, I’ve taken the liberty of renaming such tracks to their ORIGINAL artist names and crediting the remixer/editor in parenthesis. Think that’s disrespectful? Not nearly as disrespectful as taking someone else’s music, looping it, adding bells and whistles, then passing it off as your own. Honestly, the sampling part isn’t even what eats away at me – it’s how “producers” are literally passing whole songs off as their own after adding a 4/4 kick and a hi-hat. I mean, really – some cases are so blatant, that when I would Shazam them, the ORIGINAL song would come up!

Now some of these edits (because that’s really what they are) are actually pretty good, so I’ve included them in the mix, but there will be TWO links next to them – a link to the remixer/editors version and a link to the ORIGINAL VERSION or inspiration.  This is done for two VERY important reasons:

  • a.) To educate those who may not be old enough to remember the importance and significance of these original recordings and
  • b.) To give proper credit (even if not monetary) to the original artists, who – in most of these cases – did the hard work with actual instruments and without the help of a modern DAW (Digital Audio Workstation, ie; Cubase, Ableton, Logic, etc.) and are hardly ever being credited for their work.

In cases where it is unclear whether original music has been used but the sound is similar enough to the original (Robin Thicke anyone??), the SAME thing will occur (2 links).

Don’t like it? FIGHT ME.

PLEASE NOTE: To avoid confusion, remixer/editor will be credited correctly on public sites such as MixCloud, Podomatic, etc. (END RANT)
