Brand New Subways & Sidewalks Podcast Featuring HW

Recorded in early December, I was waiting for this day to unleash the hilarity and sadness of what we did here…ALL UNRELEASED EXCLUSIVES from HW’s upcoming album ‘Wallpaper Exit Wounds’ plus a special live track that was written that day!  Can it get better?  Well yes, if you have a date and someone to share the podcast with, but hey sometimes life don’t cut that way…C’est La Vie.  Click the cover art above, the link HERE to download or stream live @ Rapreviews.com.  Shouts to Flash for putting up with my nonsense!!!

Valentine’s Day Spectacular on WPKN

Had a rare chance to be on-air for Valentine’s Day and FUNraising…how could the stars have aligned like this?  Well they did and a great show was done of all songs I feel express to true nature of love which is a painful (beautifully so) event no matter how you dice it.  Take a listen and ENJOY!!!

Mornings on WPKN Valentine’s Day Spectacular

Tuesday is Recycling Day and I Looooove Recycling

For nearly half a decade Bondfire has been providing unforgettable moments, and a great proving ground, for music fans and artists alike, every last Tuesday of the month at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC. The event, however, is going to end its four and a half year run on February 28th.

Much more than just another NYC open mic, Bondfire has been a unique artist-driven community, and its stage has witnessed the growth of many talented acts. Artists including Tah Phrum Duh Bush, iAreConscious, and PremRock went from rocking the Bondfire stage to touring overseas. Homeboy Sandman went from the Bondfire stage to signing a deal with Stones Throw Records. Countless other artists saw their YouTube views go from the hundreds to the thousands. There was the night the legendary Kool Herc came through to enjoy the show and give words of encouragement. The Bondfire community also came together when a non-regular swiped co-host Tasty Keish’s laptop, raising the money to get her a new one. This is why, even though it was billed as an open mic (or, in Bondfire terminology, a “mic open”) with main event acts, emcee Warren Britt, who has been a mainstay at the show, has another way to describe Bondfire – “it was family.” To read the whole article visit Adam’s World Blog

Ruff Mix Mondays!!!! Valentine’s Edition…

YOOOOOO!!!!  So today is the Hallmark Holiday that makes single peeps feel awful and lonely and puts undue pressure on those in relationships to have a special time…PRETTY SWEET!!!  So like I did last year, I put together a mix of songs that are for the most part anti-valentine’s.  Mostly because love is a such a tumultuous and tragic event until you find that ONE.  So until that time we all suffer…and this mix is and ode to those failed relationships in our search…

Valentine’s Day Treat!!!

Whuttup, Whuttup!!!  So with the big V-Day upon us soon, I thought I would add to the hoopla myself by crafting a mix that celebrates the sadder side of that pesky emotion of love (sorry there are no bromance songs…).  We all deal with it in our own way and here is my take on it.  Yes, I did recycle a track that I made as the intro…I freaking thought of this on Wednesday, cut me some slack here!!! Without further adieu, here’s DJ Halo’s Valentine’s Day 2010 mix…click the cover or the link here

BTW, I’ll be doing a show with the homies New World Side Order in BK @ The Beauty Bar on Valentine’s day so grab your partner and rock out the the futuristic sounds of Concept 2020, Crazy E 2020 and Halo 2020 (always weird seeing him at events…so that’s what I’m gonna look like in 2020…hmmm).  I start rocking at 10pm, NWSO @ 11pm, DJ Halo 12-???
