RoxXxan - Thunder Bay (Freestyle)

We all know that RoxXxan is a beast on the mic, so it came as no surprise that she killed it on this freestyle. Extra kudos for using a Hudson Mohawke beat too!

Keep an eye out for her mixtape, 'Prepare 4When I Land', which is dropping sometime soon.

P.S. You can catch me DJ-ing for RoxXxan on Example's UK Tour at the following dates:

12th December - Swindon
13th December - Cambridge
15th December - Nottingham

If you're at any of the shows, come and say hi.

Hope you enjoy the mix! More to come soon.

Dream Mclean & DJ Cable - The Purple Sandwich (Mixtape)

It's been a while since I hit you with a proper mixtape, so here's the latest offering from Dream Mclean, mixed by myself.

Consisting of some of the best tracks from his previous Purple Promo series, plus some new heat, we've compiled a heavy mix of Hip Hop, Grime and Dubstep; all of which demonstrate why he is definitely one to watch out for in 2012.

If you're a new fan, this is the perfect place to start before you go and download his entire back catalogue. We hope you enjoy the mixtape.

DJ Cable Vs. Denon MC3000 (Video)

...so the guys over at Denon Europe asked me to test out their new 2 channel MIDI controller, the MC3000, and put together a routine for their new promo video....

It's very much a live club set, which incorporates a bit of live remixing on the spot.

The routine starts with a mixtape-style intro over the (now-classic) Grime instrumental "Wooo Riddim".

I then build up a composition using a series of custom loops and one shots (some of which I've made myself), alongside a refix I've made of Roska's "Jackpot", and then mess about with the effects. After that, I then mix in the intro to Redlight's "Stupid", and trigger a bass sample (from that tune), manipulating it using the Filter LFO effect.

Main features covered include:

multi deck mixing
cue point juggling
group effects (assigning more than one deck to an effects group)
making use of the volume faders for all 4 decks

I hope you enjoy the video!

R.I.P. Heavy D

R.I.P. Heavy D, who passed away earlier today at the age of 44.

He left behind a classic back catalogue of albums; for those that are either too young to remember him, or were simply unaware of the music he made, I highly recommend you take the time to listen to albums such as Big Tyme, Peaceful Journey and Blue Funk.

New DJ Unkut video...

The 2011 DMC World Online Champion raises the bar yet again.

Logam "Your Mom Makes Dubstep"

This is genius...

"Is it just me or is the standard for what is considered to be "Dubstep" today just getting lower and lower and lower and lower on a daily basis? I mean seriously, I just heard some of the worst "Dubstep" I've ever heard and this dude or dudes have over 2000 followers. For my next Dub release I'm just going to set off a car alarm, record it, and put a beat behind it...oh and sample someone talking about hoes or drugs or hoes with drugs and then pitch it down and insert it right before the drop. 10,000 followers in one day. Guaranteed."

Press play, and laugh.

Oh, there is a also a remix contest. Download the stems here.

Master Of The Mix Season 2, Episode 1 (Video)

Master Of The Mix is back for its second season. Rater than pre-select a group of DJs to battle it out, they've held auditions this time around. Amongst those who auditioned include DJ P (1999 DMC US Finalist) and Total Eclipse of the X-Ecutioners.

I wouldn't be surprised if they both reach the final stage. They're sick.

Other things to note:

1) Amber Rose = peng.
2) Female DJ in the pink dress = peng.
3) Blatantly there needs to be a UK version.

Wingsuit Basejumping...

This looks nuts!

Torae "For The Record" (Prod. DJ Premier)

This release kinda passed me by (no Pharcyde). It's always good to have an excuse to post something by DJ Premier on this blog, so here's the title track from Torae's debut LP, which he's kindly given away for free.


The album also features production from 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Marco Polo, !llmind, Pete Rock, Diamond D, Buckwild, Nottz, Large Professor, Fatin, and Torae himself.

BONUS! Torae "For The Record" Trailer...
