Remix

Wuddup Wednesday!


Hump day is upon us!  Let’s get through it…together

Willie Green – Fasho Fasho! (Remix) ft. PremRock, Zilla Rocca & Mad Dukez

FASHO FASHO (Remix) Artwork

New remix from NYC producer Willie Green remixing, himself.  The original is from the album We Live In The Future and for the remix he brought along NYC cohort PremRock (also on original track), Philly rhyme killah Zilla Rocca and Buffalo’s own Mad Dukez.  Released as a maxi-single harkening back to the old 12″ singles ft. Remix, Inst, Acc and Album.  Be on the looks for a HALO RMX very soon!

JnaturaL – Ain’t Nothing Sacred Video

Brand new video from west coast spitter (and maaannn can she spit) JnaturaL featuring great subject matter and equally well thought out visuals a la Calvin Klein ONE ads.  Take that Fashion Industry!  Speaking of; if you didn’t know JnaturaL is also a clothing designer.  Check the site (Halseyan.com), grab some gear for your significant other and maybe get a jibber outta the deal.  You can thank me later…

Jern Eye – Power ft. Vex Davortex

Jern Eye_Power_single cover

Brand new track from the homie and Lunar Heights alum.  I have been a fan since his first LP Authentic Vintage.  Check the break at the end of Combat, 1min+ of neck snapping.  If you aren’t bobbing a bit to it, check your pulse because you.might.be.DEAD

DJ HALO Live in Hayfork, CA

I’ll be traveling north this Friday to rock at Northern Delights Cafe in Hayfork, CA so if you are in the vicinity I would highly recommend coming out to see me get loose and not because of The Goose either.  I am naturally limber…

Whuttup Wednesday!


It’s hump day and like all weeks, you are close enough to the weekend to taste it, but far enough away to be at the bottom of your dispair about never getting there.  Buck up, here’s some items that should help get you through…we can do this, together (cue sappy/inspirational music in 3…2…1).

Corina Corina ‘O.D. Love’ (Deto-22 Remix)

Hot off the griddle from BK songstress Corina Corina and remixed by 1/4 of CT’s Phenetiks Crew, Deto-22.  I wouldn’t sleep if I were you…

Paper Tiger – The Sting feat Homeboy Sandman

New heater from Paper Tiger of the UK, not Doomtree’s Brooklyn Transplant (shouts to E. Lit on the correction; check dude’s blog.  Got some really insightful reviews in there) featuring NYC’s Stones Throw representative Homeboy Sandman; 7″ out on 5/13 via UK based Wah Wah 45’s which is a great little label out there is you are unfamiliar.

and for my electro heads…

Aesop Rock ‘Harbor is Yours’ (HALO Remix)

Harbor is Yours Remix Cover

Finally making music again, so I thought I’d share this pretty dark take on Aesop Rock’s “Harbor is Yours” one of my favorite tracks of his seminal album ‘None Shall Pass’. Enjoy, and if you are in the Bay area at all this saturday you might want to check me out spinning the jams all night at The Legionnaire Saloon and check the flyer as it came out pretty awesome, my comic nerds will know you that uber hot chick is. Word.

Thugg Thursday!!!


Happy New Yeahhhhh!!!  Let’s welcome the year of total annihilation (if you believe all the 2012 hype; unlikely at best really) with open arms and kiss it all goodbye with some great music for my first post of 2012 courtesy of myself, the fellas at Basserk and Scion A/V.  Sounds pretty good; if you are gonna go out you might as well have a good soundtrack right?  Niiiice…

Kitchen Sink #17

My first live set of 2012 on RWD.fm and it was chock full of bangers I have recently gotten in my endless, relentless blog search for the perfect beat.  Thanks alot Soul Sonic Force for putting me on thaaat quest!  If you are unaware, you can check me out every Saturday afternoon spinning live (usually) from 2-4pm on RWD.fm

Bronstibock ‘The Edge’ Remix Contest

I have entered yet another remix contest and will undoubtedly lose as per the usual, but at least it’s good motivation to finish tracks in a timely fashion.  This one is brought to you by the fellas Bronstibock; who I had the pleasure of rocking with when I was out in Amsterdam on my Euro tour last January, as well as being taken good care of by their label Basserk.  Below is my submission to the contest and feel free to click the art above to grab the stems for yourself to enter or check out the competition’s entries (some BANGERS in there!).

Skream & Benga EP 

Brand new music from english dubstep royalty  Benga & Skream brought to you by the fine folks over at Scion A/V…BANGING from front to back!  I would highly recommend clicking the link above to check it out.

Ruff Mix Mondays is Back!!!


Happy Freaking Hogswatch!!!

I am back and badder than than ever for the holidaze and all that good stuff…getting my cards all set to mail and what knot so it’s about time I start posting again to this corner/crux of the internet.  I have a new mix for you to download and some stuff off my soundcloud as well and then I will leave you be…Savvy?  OK, let’s ‘go in’ as the kids say these days…

DJ HALO – COLD

I made this mix for a special person, as the title would indicate, but they will remain nameless…maybe it’s YOU.  Either way a great mix was produced and I hope you enjoy it, feel free to post comments or your mama jokes…what?  Track list!?  fiiiine…This is the most rappy mix I have made in forever, so ENJOY!

New Soundcloud Heat!

Not really as it has been up for about a month or so now, but I haven’t had time to post about it until now.  A remix I did for the Scale It Back remix contest held by DJ Shadow, obviously I didn’t win, but I did make a song that I am excited to play for people…peep game.

Halodoesntsuck Site Relaunch!


Happy Birthday America!!!

So the site has been remixed (literally just in time) and overhauled totally to make way for exciting new additions that I am sure to get slacking on updating immediately.  First thing’s first I updated all the pages content so you can get a better idea of what I have been up to in the Live Events page, see AND hear all my newest remixes and tracks in the Producer & Remixer page.  I spiffed up the Official Releases, Free Mixes and  Podcasts page as well as condensed my Broadcast Show Archive to just one handy dandy page (no more blah show archive and this show archive) with sweet title headers for easy navigation.  I changed much general aesthetic (why you gotta get all aestheticamalogical on me son?) of the site as well: new banner, fonts, background, etc.  Lastly, and this is the biggest deal, I will start posting other people’s music on my site on a regular basis along with periodic album reviews (really this time not like when I started the site and ‘said’ I would).  Please always feel free to comment on it!  I think that’s about it for the overhaul news, thanks for checking the updated site and if you have any questions or whatnot <holler.@.your.boy>, you know where I beez.

New Ish for Your Earhole…

Hear is the first installment of other cats music on my site.  This post is HUGE with something for everyone (well maybe not everyone; I don’t have country or jungle or symphonic music, but thanks for bringing it up…jerk) but, I will try to be posting 3-4 new tunes a week from now one.  Up this week is tracks from Last Child, Dirty Vegas, Justice, Co$$, Hess is More, SBTRKT and more.  Please click all the links an support these labels and artists.  Peep game fool!

Last Child – Last Child Speaks

From the Amazing ‘Humble and Low’ EP which was recorded in early 2000’s but shelved until now.  I remember to homie Haiku in Chicago playing it for me on tour about 4 years ago and being blown away by the incredibly poignant, forcful, and ultimately depressed his lyrics were.  A TRU throwback to a bygone era in Hip-Hop history (ala Funcrusher Plus, Cannibal Ox, The Lucy Ford, etc.) where dusty breaks and well penned lyrics met on the regular.  RIP Last Child.  Available @ Galapago4.com, be on the looks for the G4 edition of Subways & Sidewalks verrrrry soon!

Dirty Vegas – Little White Doves (Penguin Prison Remix)

Disco flavored remix of the track from the stellar new LP from Dirty Vegas ‘Electric Love’ out now on OM Records.

Hess Is More – Creation Keeps the Devil Away (Piano Version)

Alt version of the fantastic new track by Hess is More. Downtempo funkiness for sure, great early evening track. Single out now on Nublu.

Co$$ – Spaceman

Voted ‘Most Underrated LA Rapper’ by the LA Times, Co$$ has been making a name for himself for a while now.  Title title track from the 12″ EP is full of analytical flows over jazzy piano loops with a little twist to give it that West Coast flavor.

Justice – Civilization (Radio Edit)

The label that put this out wasn’t lying, it is a BANGER!  Gritty bass pop for your Q Zone…New album will be out later in 2011 on Ed Banger.

SBTRK – Wildfire

Jump off track from SBTRKT’s debut LP and it’s goooood!  This one has been burning up my broadcast shows since I got it in the mail.  Out now on Young Turks and you can peep SBTRKT’s site for more audio as well

Monopunk – Expo Warning (G-Dub remix)

Brand new track from stellar DJ/Producer from Scotland on Electro/Dubstep label from Amsterdam, Basserk.  Really bouncey drums with that gritty synth you know and love.   I just happened to have recently done a Podcast for the fellas as well which you can check out HERE…

Cassettes Won’t Listen – The Echoes

New track from the BK now LA Transplant homie.  Great music, plain and simple…taking that producer based indie rock to the next level.  Also check the new collective he has formed with long time friend and collaborator Bisco Smith called Daylight Curfew as well as their group called The Freeze Tag.  Be on the looks for The Freeze Tag Subways & Sidewalks coming out soon!

Lastly, I will be periodically posting videos that I am feeling or are throwbacks to my youth or whatever, it’s not going to be a regular thing just an add on to my site post every so often…This video is HILARIOUS, old skool MTV from the liquid television days (I still have the VHS compilation).  Peace to my sister Rikki (who is a really stellar photographer and blogger) who found this video in the wilderness that is YouTube.  Enjoy!

Ruff Mix Mondays; Remix Edition!!!


Aiiight, Aiight!!!  So I have been posted in the lab since tour banging out remixes like the world was going to end, as well as making beats and all that good stuff…big things will be coming this fall!!!  That said I will also be updating the live dates page, adding more to the Six Feet Deep and Morning show archives, last and this week’s artist of the week and prolly some other tricks I haven’t figured out yet (Moo Whoo Hahaha!!!) and last but certainly not least I will be overhauling my soundcloud page so that I can post audio from my tracks on the site (Holler!!!).  I now also have a furry assistant for the nonce to help around the halodoesntsuck studios, he’s been a HUGE help with the remixes…So let’s get into it shall we???  All this lallygagging last week made me soft…
