New live video from System D128. Robot rock appears to be serving as the rallying call for machines all over the world while Rhea-M envelops our earth.

We Mix On Your Grave

I just dug up this mix that has been buried for awhile now over at Laundromat United. Its from last year but it still kills. Its in 3 parts with the first and third 13 minutes and middle 31 minutes long. Laundromat United throw parties out in the Bay Area, so if you're ever in the area hit 'em up. You may also recognize Capski as he has a couple edits floating around the sphere.

What it Do: Halloweekend

I must say, last year was pretty epic. Childs Play on Friday then Ruboween on Saturday, Seg meanwhile stayed in Philly for last years Hallowasted we'll have to see how things compare this year. Ladies, if you need a costume place, get one from here, its in Jersey. Girls's Costume Warehouse including but not limited to Sexy 1900's Steel Conglomerate Tycoon, Sexy sexy and frog.


Armand's Closing

Entire inventory of Armand's Records is for sale on Ebay for $199,000. Records, CDs, professional contracts, fixtures, DVDs, basically everything you need to start your own store or painstakingly flip it all on Ebay seperately. Anybody want to go in on it with me?



Ballin at the top of the Bellvue Hotel for Halloween with Soul Travelers Orchestra and The Gray Kid. Costumes required.
We're mad psyched to present the city's biggest Halloween party along with the Soul Travelers at XIX (say it like 19) at The Bellevue on Halloween night this Tuesday, October 31st. XIX, say it like 19, is probably the raddest spot in the city. It sits on the top floor of the legendary Bellevue Hotel and overlooks the entire city. Huge ballroom ceilings, multiple rooms and plenty of space to dance. This will be the second year the Soul Traveler's Orchestra will be performing on Halloween. The Soul Traveler's Orchestra is DJ's Brendan & Joey Blanco with a live backing band of incredible musicians, led by the legendary James Routh, that play along with the DJ's. They destroyed it & packed Denim last year and now we're all collaborating to turn the party dial up to 10 at XIX.

The party starts at 9pm. Costumes are required for entry. It's $15 at the door, but just $10 on the list. Spread the word to all your people and get ready for the Haunted Hotel....(insert evil Vincent Price laugh here).
Just added is The Gray Kid. He's responsible for the hilarious Paxil Back track. MySpace here, website here. Download Lonely Love here.

Bonus track: Jim Jones feat T.I, Baby, Young Dro, Diddy - We Fly High Remix

WKDU Electronic Music Marathon

Just started. The Electronic Music Marathon takes a long weekend every year and puts a different electronic music DJ on every hour to raise money for a good cause.

From the WKDU EMM myspace:
The electronic music marathon has been a fund raising activity at Wkdu 91.7 fm for the past 8 years. We have raised money in the past for numerous charities both in and around the Phildelphia area. Most recently we raised over $3,000 last year for NOVA, The National Organization for Victim's Assistance, who desparately needed funds after the devasting effects of the hurricanes last year. To date we have raised over $16,000 for both local and national charities.. all with one goal.. to make music the key to a better world! Our past charities have been Philabundance, PhiladelphiaFIGHT, NOVA, Village of Arts and Humanities, and the Red Cross. And this year's charity is... Musicopia/ Strings for schools.
Listen in Philly at 91.7 FM or online here.

Hand Fed

SomaFM independent internet radio

Exemplary music is hard to find. And I'm lazy, so that doesn't help. What does help is an underground radio station called Soma Fm, broadcasting out of San Fran 24/7 throughout the world wide tubes. The music is hand picked, which means you're not just getting fed some random songs. You might hear repeats from time to time, but I'll bet you won't mind.

I recommend the "cliq hop" channel, for the comforting sound of pops and glitches placed under the reins of unruly beats. Or "beat blender" for some shuffling downtempo adventures. Whatever genre you pick, you're likely to be exposed to something explosive.

I was especially blown away by the group The Cinematic Orchestra who combine jazz and downtempo elements to initiate a full force bombardment of auditory artillery upon your unsuspecting frontal lobe.
Check out this myspace fansite for a taste.

October Monthly Mix Winner

The Low Budget monthly mix winner is Cousin Cole. Back again with a killer mix this time highlighting Marley Marl.

Marlon Williams (born September 30, 1962 in Queens, New York City), better known as Marley Marl, is an influential hip-hop producer. He was the house producer of the Juice Crew, which included (in addition to him): Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Roxanne Shanté, Kool G Rap, MC Shan (his cousin) and Masta Ace, and produced songs for outside artists including King Tee and LL Cool J. He was also an important figure in the careers of Eric B. & Rakim, producing their first hits "My Melody" and "Eric B Is President", mixing James Brown samples and synthetic beats in a fashion previously unheard of. Marley Marl was one of the pioneers of sampling in hip-hop. He debuted as an electro producer, but his records became more sample heavy, as can be seen by comparing the MC Shan LPs Down By Law (1987) and Born to be Wild (1988). The rhythms became less electronic, with drum machines becoming less prominent. Marl started his career working for Tuff City records. He debuted with his own track called "DJ Cuttin" in 1985, released under the pseudonym NYC Cutter. In 1994 Marley Marl was referenced on Biggie Smalls' track "Juicy" as being one of his early influences.

TTC & MSTRKRFT at Taxlo Baltimore

So Friday we took a road trip to Baltimore to check out Taxlo with TTC, MSTRKRFT and Edu K performing alongside residents Cullen Stalin and Simon Phoenix. On the way there Dirty South Joe aka Deluxxx was dropping knowledge jewels about the next Hollertronix release, Hollerween, Diplo's favorite color, Low Budget's favorite food and all sorts of crazy insider information. I was busy scribbling this all down but he swore me to secrecy. Sike! Ha, actually he was dropping knowledge jewels about all sorts of 80's films I have never seen. System D128 mentioned his new video for Curtis Vodka's Diamonds & Cream track will be out soon and how ill White Label TV is, but nothing crazy beside that.

We finally arrive, Cullen Stalin is on the decks in the main room playing club music including some brand new MIA that killed it. TTC is on in another room. Twice in two weeks and still worth it. I just need to learn French. Apparently we missed Edu K. After TTC, MSTRKRFT dj set was up. Apparently, the one dude was sick and couldn't make it so there was only one half of MSTRKRFT. $3 Guiness all night and I was chilling. Shout out to all the people from Philly there. I almost didn't go out so I would be chill for Saturday, glad I went anyways. After the party, its the afterparty times two. Coming back, Philly seemed a lot farther away but we didn't crash until after we got home.

What it Do: Friday the 13th!

Happy Friday the 13th! My favorite day of the year. Quite appropriate since its in October. Grand opening of Level this weekend is going to huge! Caps & Jones, Rod motherfukcing Lee, Juiceboxxx, Deluxxx, BBC. Can you tell I might be a little excited?

  • Scott Melker at Sundays are the New Black - $5 cover
    • Just back from Japan, about to go on tour with G. Love & Special Sauce, one half of DJ duo The CMB with Cosmo Baker, guest dj at Ruboween.
    • No fluff here, just great DJ's, week after week after week...

Whats Up With Rod Lee?

For those that don't know about Rod Lee, Dirty South Joe aka DJ Deluxxx did a short interview with him a couple weeks back for the Philly Weekly.

Background: “The undisputed godfather of Baltimore club.”

On the recent globalization of the B-more club sound: “When you’ve been doing it for a while, it kind of pans out to where you’re just thankful for what you’ve got. You try to stay grounded and humble and gradually get ’em on it. If they feel it, it’s a blessing. If not, it’s nothing to get upset about.”

On pretenders to the throne: “When you’ve got some average Joe who you don’t even worry about who takes the club music, puts their name on it and throws it out there­, they’re gonna get more notoriety than someone who eats, sleeps and shits it. Doing club music is how I survive and feed my kids. It’s more than just throwing a beat together and trying to make someone dance. It’s different when an outsider tries to infiltrate and create the Baltimore sound. To them it’s not that serious, but it’s what took me off the streets. Now we’re in competition. Now it’s gettin’ fun and I’m gonna have to shut you down.”

See the godfather of Bmore club this Saturday at the grand opening of Level. Read the rest of the article here.

Grand Opening Of Level

3 floors. Rod motherfucking Lee, godfather of Bmore club. Caps & Jones killing it downstairs. Juiceboxxx back to blow your minds. Spank Rock djs BBC with nothing but heat and DJ Deluxxx. You know!
On the Third Floor is a private VIP lounge overlooking the dance floor with booths and private bar. We are currently accepting booth reservations for the third floor. There is a very friendly bottle service minimum: just one bottle per 6 person group. If you're interested in skipping the line, having your friends hold it down on the Third Floor and generally do it big for the opening, just holler at us with "Booth Reservation" as the subject with your name and a contact number.

Pop Montreal

Montreal was crazy. Shout out to the city and all the people I met and saw. Curtis Vodka and I stopped by L'Étiquette Radio on Friday night after getting into the city. From there we headed Fractal. Fractal is a two level warehouse club that was just reopened. Curtis played from 1 - 2:30 with his signature sound of Baltimore club. Up next was DJ Orgasmic and TTC. The French Canadians absolutely love these guys as they were singing along to their songs. The energy from the show was amazing.

Up next was Daniel Haksman and Edu K. Edu K was the lead singer of a pop punk band of what seems like My Chemical Romance or something like that. In 2000, he wrote a song dedicated to baile funk called Popuzuda Rock n Roll (ass Rock n Roll) and has been riding the wave of funk carioca since. The show was interesting. Here is a guy that is dressed in all black, black painted nails, spiked collar etc and I think he's singing about ass shaking and partying. Hmmm. To add to the flavor, he was definitely into the show, climbing on top of speakers (nearly knocking them over), climbing on tables and humping them etc. Interesting to say the least. He's on tour and will be in Baltimore this Friday at Taxlo along with TTC and MSTRKRFT.

We wake up the next day and walk up and down St. Laurent and all around downtown Montreal. Aux Vivres is a killer vegan restaurant. I tried poutine from a random spot. Moog/DNA now stocks Yeti Bounce. Vice Records party jumped off. Saw Flosstradamus, Kid Sister, Pandemonium Jones, Dave from Chromeo, A-Trak, Huggs, Cullen Stalin and a whole gang of other people there. Fast forward to Fractal again. Hatchmatik from Peer Pressure in Montreal is killing them with Bmore and more. A-Trak was up next and kept the party jumping with bmore and baile bangers. We left shortly after attempting to find the Slum Recs after party with Pandemonium Jones, Erik Devro, Huggs (he'll be at Sundays on the 22nd) and a couple other cats but no luck. Head back to go sleep and watch White Label TV. This is killer right here. I got an exclusive for this and this is just crazy. Crazy amounts of Spank Rock and some ill video remixes from System-D128 and more. Will keep you updated as soon as its out.

Sunday we went to a sports bar on St. Laurent to watch the Eagles game and found we were in friendly territory. Surrounded by Iggles fans, we cheered the Birds on as they beat the Cowboys. After the game, we headed home, passed through New Baltimore and got back to NYC early Monday morning.

I was back in Philly Monday night and have been recovering ever since. Back to the grind today and here on out.
