Whuttup yall, Just hipping you to a new track I have on the 3rd annual Monster Are Due On Crayon Beats compilation which I”m pretty excited about. It’s based on the Twilight Episode of The Living Doll; take a listen and have a great HALO-ween!
Hey Hey! Couple of exciting items for you and yes I know it’s been quite sometime since I’ve posted here but peeps get busy and the paper chase never ends, well more like the paying bills chase never ends, anyway. Enjoy thes items and hope you have a great week.
BRZOWSKI+HALO – WICHITAH
Big Brzo and I put our heads together before heading over to EU for the Boltcutters To Infinty Tour and came up with this joint and 10 months later it available everywhere digitally, and I mean everywhere, site I can’t even see because I live in the US are carrying the album, but for ease of use here are the big ones to check it on. 2 orginal songs, 2 remixes, instrumentals of all for only a fiverrr. Not too shabby.

BADBADNOTGOOD FEAT. GHOSTFACE KILLAH & DANNY BROWN – SIX DEGREES (HALODOESNTSUCK REMIX)
Remix I did as soon as I got back from the SXSW Telethong tour with Tanya Morgan and Corina Corina and just neve got around to posting until now. Gotten some decent love on Soundcloud and a unexpected PR push from the homies at MyWayDJ. Enjoy!
Sad Batub Mix
Greagory Pepper curated, HALO mixed and Doesntsuck approved, here’s what the Pep had to say about it, “Those who know me well are already aware of my affinity towards soaking in the tub. There’s no greater reward at the end of a long day than sliding into a 40 degree pool of sudsy water with a cooler of beer at arm’s length and some sweet jams on the stereo. Though i usually only listen to grindcore during the daylight hours, bath time at Camp Pepper demands a precise musical accompaniment: Adagio tempo, clean tones, and somber melodies that evoke a sense of hopeless optimism. So with the summer drawing to a close, I’m pleased to share with you some of my sad bathtub favorites. Lots of classic pop and melancholy folk from the past five decades curated by yours truly and edited / scratched by the homie DJ Halo. I hope you dig it.” – Gregory Pepper, September 2015

Coming to you live from day off in LA;
Cage & Sadistik West Coast Tour
Only have a few remaining (5 I think) dates left on this tour but it’s been great so far; thanks to Vera Project, Domino Room, Blue Lamp, Bullfrogs, and Constellation Room for some really great nights. The rest of the dates are as follows, if you are in the area come on out! Might make a mix when I get home but I dunno…
Hella excited blood for this one, lots of exciting times from Low End Theory to Fake Four’s official SXSW showcase, ending in Oakland at Leo’s, and evertything in between it should be mad decent times. Have cooked up a special set with Corina and we are pretty excited to share it with y’all.
Pretty excited to have made it on to this just under the wire for the deadline. Unicorn Domination is a great group from PDX who I met a few years ago a festival in OR, since then stayed in touch and asked if I could remix a song of theirs and this is what happened. Check the rest of the songs on their Bandcamp Page, there are some really talented producers on this project.
Just something I threw together for the remix contest for fun; the homie C$ Burns kilt that sh*t though.
Quick note on my phone from the road on the Boltcutters To Beyond tour w/Browski & Monsieur Sai + Arth? to let you know I’m on tour in Europe till 1/27; figure that’s a cool thing to let you know about, right?

Have updated the Podcasts and Releases sections to be up to date (finally!) and have a few other odds and ends to post up today so enjoy.
IT’S A DJ HALO XMAS
I have two mixes that are a bit dated but I have been HECKKKA busy this year so you get a recycle of two great holidays mixes I have done in the past, might still pull out a last minute mix like a rabbit from my hat, but it looks doubtful…BOOOOO (yes, yes I know)!
The Seattle/Bay Area duo is back at it again after the release of their new album Glaciers on Fake Four Inc. All instrumentals that have been or intended to be rapped on, so emcees get to beat jacking!
Not a new track as this was on the ‘Free Floating Rationales’ album, but the video is news to me. I LOVE THIS SONG and now it part of a Free Sixo & Leif[kolt] EP called ‘Absent Bodied’ as part of Fake Four Free Fridays which is a new Free release on the FFI Bandcamp every Friday in December.
