Def Jam - 1996
On one of his Crooklyn Cuts mixtapes, DJ Premier rocked doubles of this and brought it back over and over and over... As a 17 yr old listening to that cassette in my Volvo station wagon I couldn't help but love it.
It was the B-Side to Loungin, which was pretty much the jam of the summer that year, so it turned out I had it on that 12" but never knew til much later.

On October 12th, Haycock, co-chairman of The Do Over dropped in to LAX to do a murderous set of classic rave, house, hip-hop and everything in between... The impressive part is that he was at the do over all day running shit from like noon to 10pm and then came straight to over to Banana to DJ... Que rico!

Anyone who has been keeping up with MBVSDG knows that I'm a huge fan of DJ Sneak and have been since I was just a youngster... well the good news is, I've actually been corresponding with the House Gangster himself!
He's been keeping my life pretty funky by sending me tons of new stuff he's working on as well as inviting me to curate the second room at this years Sneak's Birthday Beats, an event that takes place every year in LA with rave mainstays B3 and the homie Pinga. The line up is insane... In addition to the Sneak, we have Derrick Carter, Wally Callerio and a very special guest.
If y'all don't already know, MAJOR is a monthly after hours party that Acid Girls, Staccato and I have been building. Real house vibes from classic to acid and minimal.
Anyway, that's why it's gonna be called the Major Room, we'll also have Paparazzi in the room and DJ Shawn V. (BTW, the next MAJOR is Nov 15th with special guest Michna!)
Sneak's also jumped into the blog fire and has been posting amazing shit. He's been putting up live sets, vids, top 10's etc and it's THE SHIT! Check it regularly from now on.
In fact, his whole new website is quite fresh and clean.

Finally, here's the best part of all, why we're all here; free music.
Sneak sent me the illest of all ill mixes. 70 minutes of all classics!!! Disco, proto-house, acid... all of it. It's unbelievably dope and instantly became one of my favorite mixes... Ballee-dat.
In the words of Sneak himself, it's that "Real DOPE OG Chicago Jackin shit."
!!!!THIS IS A MUST DL!!!!

And as if that weren't enough, he also sent me this Obama track he made for the upcoming election. Perfect for your 4:30am political rallys!

Fools Gold has really become one of the better labels out there, and though I am not typically in the glamorous bizness of posting new tracks... I thought I'd post some stuff from their new Scion Sampler because it's really good and they said it was OK. Here are some stand outs:
Treasure Fingers - Cross The Dancefloor (Chromeo Remix)
Nacho Lovers - Go On (Blu Jemz Remix)
A-Trak - Say Whoa (DJ Spinna Remix)
The Blu Jemz Remix of the Nacho Lovers track is a certified banger, so make sure you don't sleep. Jemz himself played it right out The Crusade* at The Do-Over a couple weeks ago. (It was a ballsy move but it actually rocked the floor.)
*BTW, The Royal Rumble Remix of The Crusade has been making the rounds and it's a dance floor destroyer. If you haven't already, download it.
And don't forget to RSVP for the Fool's Gold Remixed
tour, which is hitting Miami, Atlanta, Philly and Baltimore this
month. Do that here.
