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! 🙂
