Whuttup Wednesday!


Hiyoooo!!!  Still recovering from SXSW and for those who were at the parties I rocked (Indie Showcase and Fake Four Showcase!) as well as just in Austin in general you know how majickal it was…Nuff said.  I want to give a HUGE shout out to my brother from another mother HW for being my co-pilot and roll dog for the whole trip, I couldn’t have done it with out you homie!  Soooo much This American Life…if you haven’t peeped the show live or in podcast form you are missing out.  Shouts to Ira Glass for being a broadcast giant.  If you would like to see some funny quotes and video of the trip check HW’s Tumblr page HERE.  Now on with the show…

This week I have two items that are banging in my boombox these days along with a remix by me that was finished on the road in Baton Rouge (thanks for the couch Sara, hope your roomie is not too pissed about it still).  So let’s get down on the get down, shall we?

PremRock & Willie Green: Reassembled

The NYC up and comers and homies PremRock & Willie Green have had a decent amount of buzz about their incredible debut album as a duo and they have enlisted the help of all their producer friends to give Willie a break and give you a fantastic new record in the form of PremRock & Willie Green: Reassembled featuring the talents of producers such as Dirt E. Dutch, Nasa and Blockhead so you know it’s dopesauce…plus it comes with all the instrumentals too!  Click the cover above to check the bandcamp page for it and grab yourself a copy ASAP!    Also as an extra bonus for you, I will give you FREE a copy of my remix that sadly was not in time for Willie to master because of SXSW prep and various life whatknots…BOO!  DJ HALO, BOO!  yeah, yeah I know…

PremRock & Willie Green ft. Open Mic Eagle – Jogger (HALO Remix)

Treasure Fingers ‘Rooftop Revival’ EP

 Another banger of an EP from the good folks at Scion A/V this time from Brooklyn based electro master and Fool’s Gold fam, Treasure Fingers.  Six tracks of total insanity on the dance floor with the original by Treasure Fingers and 5 (count them!) 5 remixes by some of the best producers around these days.  I would highly recommend a listen and DL, it’s FREE what do you have to lose?

Ruff Mix Monday…on Tuesday


Whuttup!!!  Alot of projects bubbling in the halodoesntsuck labs, will be in Buffalo the first part of the week to teach the yungins about the rap, self esteem and all that jazz…Holler!!!  This week’s Ruff Mix is a video I made for a HILARIOUS track off the Party Fun Action Committee album ‘Let’s Get Serious’.  If you are scratching your head like, “What the dunk is this cat talking about??? Jive Ass Mofo…” then check the link to learn more…

Party Fun Action Committee

The short of it is; this project was a joke project produced by Blockhead and it just happend to get put out by Def Jux back at the start of the label…See!  Rap can have a sense of humor too…Check the video and get at me about your sore abs from laughing.

For good measure here is another track from the album as well…Atoms Family anyone???  Plus the kid with the hoodie in the picture, dead up, could have been me 10 years ago…

Finally for all you Bostonites…

Rough Mix Mondays!!!


Hey Hey!!!  SO this weekend was great!  DJing, Snowboarding, hanging out till 12:30pm…it was all there.  I’ll be updating the Live show calendar this week and posting the flyer for my new Friday night i’m doing, posting my first two EXPANDED top 40 podcasts AND Subways & Sidewalks podcast…so stay tuned for that, exciting times around here right.  This weekend I had a conversation with a few people about these sound collages I had made a while back as well as a few mashups I had produced for fun.  SO, I revisted them and tried to make them not so crappy (I try to maintain a shred of standards here…seriously I do!) last night and here’s what I came up with…

I started this collage before the last cross sountry tour I did, and finished it…shocker…last night.  Although it’s still not really done.  But essentially I started making it becasue I had perfected that Tori Amos piano loop and had recently bought Natural Born Killers (the greatest love story of my generation…ahh the 90’s) on DVD and this is what came out…Love As I See It.  Grab the file by clicking the cover above or here .

I had started this one about two years ago when for some reason or another I was downloading alot of (now I don’t want to offend anyone here) “chick music” shall we say.  You know what I mean; Ani, Tori, Fiona…so Blockhead’s track “Trailor Love” had caught my ear a while back and I wanted to initially do a turntablist project with it similar to “Love As I See It” but ended up doing this.  Click on the Cover to download or here.
