BLau!!!  Coming at you this Tuesday afternoon with a TON of dope goodies; 2 Pop Session Mixes, 2 Artists of the Week and 1 plea to help a homie win an online DJ competition…WOE!!!  Yeah it’s that jam packed.  Biggup as always to Adam’s World Blog for letting me relentlessly JACK site content, and not even threaten to punch me in the face…although that may change as I recently told him I think I might have killed one of his homies…I can’t be sure though, but it MIGHT have been one of them.  Plus there’s going to be the usual sprinkle of pontificating about future events as well…will they come to pass???  I guess you’ll have to wait and see…WHALLAH!!!

HALO Sessions; Pop Mixes

ARTISTS OF THE WEEK

Showtyme 2/28/11

O.I.S.D.uary is coming to a close this week with the last, but certainly not least, member of O.I.S.D. to be featured here, Showtyme. For those looking in recent Artist Of The Week history and only seeing four of the members of O.I.S.D. you might be wondering “where’s J.Monopoly?” He was actually featured in 2009 back when “Right In The Kissah,” his collaboration with Top $ Raz and Kalil Kash, was tearing the roof off shows all over NYC.

With O.I.S.D. prepping a new album, and with them having become one of NYC’s preeminent underground hip-hop groups, I decided to dedicate the entire month’s worth of Artist Of The Week features to them. I asked the members of the group the same questions so their distinct personalities could shine. One of my favorite results from this are the different stories of how each member came to be a part of the group. J.O. led off the series of interviews, E.Y.E.Q batted second, Khid 2 Che was featured last week, and now Showtyme is closing things out and tying up any loose ends.

Chronikill 3/7/11

The Chronikill trio of Charlie Cypher, Zerox One, aka Rox, and Keyno Speedz have been a staple on New York City’s underground hip-hop scene for quite a while now. Whether it’s been their own performances, or the Doin’ Alright series of shows they throw at the Bowery Poetry Club, they know how to pack a place, and they know how the keep their wall to wall crowds happy. I caught up with all three members of Chronikill this week to find out a little bit about their history, what goes into throwing a successful event, and what some of the wilder Chronikill and Doin’ Alright moments have been. Spoiler alert – stage diving and crackheads are BOTH involved.  For full article please visit Adam’s World Blog…

HAPPY NEWWW YEAAHHHH!!!

I hope all had a happy SAFE NYE and didn’t have to say ‘I’m sorry’ too much the next day…I DJ’d a Private function in NYC that was OFF THE CHAIN.  Sooo Dope.  As is custom this time of year many are making resolutions and planning changes in their lives to coincide with the birth of a new year…that said, tomorrow I will be flying to Europe for the DJ HALO TAKES EUROPE tour and it gonna be a banger!!!  Check the dates below…

Jan 5 – London, UK

Jan 13 – Paris, France

Jan 20 – Amsterdam, Netherlands

Jan 27 – Prague, Czech Republic

Jan 29 – Berlin, Germany

It’s pretty much going to be dopesauce to the maxxx, very excited.  Peep the flyer for the Berlin show…

In addition to all this craziness, I also have two items to post before I…’jet’ (knuck knuck!) to Europe; An interview with the homie and fellow MINDSpray member Propaganda Anonymous and a session mix that might become a new series I do; mostly because I like the name of it and made two flyers for it…So let’s get into it and kick this year off from the start with a BANG.

Interview; Propaganda Anonymous

Prop and I have known each other for a looooong time; we chilled in college and later in MINDSpray (which was a total random occurence) so it’s only right that I had a chance to sit with him and talk about his new album ‘Squat the Condos’ and also his writings which can be seen at both Propanon.com and Realitysandwich.com on politics, culture and other hot button issues.  The zip contains album art for both his releases (Corazon de Todo & Squat the Condos), the interview and my favorite track off the record (Nammo Tasso DJ Nihilist Remix).  To download click the picture above or the link HERE

 

HALO SESSIONS #1

This is just a practice mix I recorded because Jennie asked me to record the next time I practiced…I also gave the CD copy I had been previewing of it to a co-worker who said it was great, and thus a new series of mixes was born.  I guess it’s not unlike those Scratch Picklez practice tapes I used to get back in the day…Praise be to the honorable Alihjau Muhammad!!!  Peep the flyers below…and click on either of them, the link above or HERE to Download.
