Got Your Number

I have to thank Dj Magneto for turning me unto this song. He does a really cool edit of it on his DJ Wax mix,and I liked it so much that did a low-key version of it for my sets at Sticky Rice. It came out pretty well, and the peeps over at Sticky were feeling it. Here it is in all it's 320 glory.

Sygaire Master of Beats

I have been listening to a lot of Sygaire recently for inspiration, since his beats are always so funky and up-front. Frank and I were discussing how he always manages to make such hard hitting drums, with his use of reverb and effects. Anyway, as I was digging though my hard-drive I found this edit I did a while ago. The Original Dub was cool but had these parts which really chilled the song out IMO, so I looped some bits and made it more B-Boy friendly. Hope you dig it...

Vote 4 All Good Funk Alliance

I hate this self promotion ish more than anyone, but I'm sick and tired of seeing sub-par dj's win that should probably spend a couple of more years in the lab honing the craft. So I'm asking you to please log in and vote for All Good Funk Alliance as one of the best dj's in Washington DC. Please also vote for Fort Knox Five in the band field.

Seriously dudes, practice your beat-matching a bit more and stop it with the constant self promotion. If I catch you train-wrecking it up out at a another gig, I'm going to come up and just press stop on your ish.


Bass invades Nu-Funk

I have to say I'm getting excited about Nu-Funk again, a couple of artists are responsible for this. I really like the fact that guys are breaking out the synths and adding that "rough" bass factor to nu-funk. I had felt that the scene was depending on over-played samples, Fatman Scoop vocals, and an influx of boring ideas for a while, but suddenly a ton of great stuff is coming out and infusing some great ideas into the musical style. Of course people like A-Skillz and John Ohms have been doing this for a while now, but I'm glad to see some new faces taking it to the next level. Look up John Ohms "Pass it Round", or A-Skillz remix of K&S "Squeeze Me" as prime examples of how this style has been evolving.

Direct Examples:

Dj Wood "Hustle Muscle"

Kool Hertz "Hotstepper"

Skee-Lo - I Wish (Slynk Remix)

Dirty Dubsters - SKA SKA SKA
