The Do Over - October 25th 2009
So I was given this date for do over months ago and have been planning for it since. I'm very lucky to have been able to play at The Do Over 6 times now. Each time I tried to play a completely different set than the time before. I felt that from a mixing and fun standpoint it is impossible to top the set I did with Cosmo Baker back in May of this year; so i figured I should just "do me."
That being said... this set contains music from MOP, Nice N Smooth, Slick Rick, Outkast, The Roots, Nas, Ghostface, Jadakiss, DJ Quik, Camp Lo, Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep and many others as well a very funky remix of Roxanne by The Police and 15 minutes of Jungle. How the hell could this work you ask? Well... Theo Parrish played a 3 hour set before me full of amazing house, techno, disco, soul and more. But obviously he did not play any hip-hop. Neither did Scott K or TK Disko who also played that day. When I came in with the new MOP/Primo joint and everyone went nuts, I knew my random rap set would be welcomed. I played so many tracks that I've never played or even heard played in clubs and they all got great reactions. What's more, I got to play it all on Theo's custom rotary mixer and sounded right and was incredibly fun.
