Willie Green

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…

Super Fresh Friday: Avalanche


Have some (alot actually) great videos (mostly) to share with you today so take a 15 and kick it; nobody smokes anymore right?

Qwel & Maker – Long Walkers

The G4 duo is back after some buzz from their recent remix contest (shouts to the winner Mane Rock!) and a mega-mix of their new record Beautiful Raw courtesy of DJ Bizkid up on Soundcloud, they give us Long Walkers…with a free download to boot.

Vice TV Staying Out of Prison

The first installment of Vice TV’s Staying Out of Prison featuring recent cult sensation via his regular column; the homieBert Burykil really shines with a very real account of what can happen once you get stuck in the US prison system.  Raw and hilarious at points, definitely well worth the 18 min run time.  Looking forward to Episode 2.

Thelonius Tut – Get Hi ft Calest

As Saturday April 20th is a holiday to some, I though it only fitting to run this song from Tut featuring Calest with Johnny Ganja on the boards.  It’s the first single from a forth coming Tut EP out this Summer; video is shot, edited and directed by the triade as well.  Chemistry…

Willie Green – Promises ft. Rachel Costello

Second single off his stellar throw back dance (yes, dance!) album We Live in the Future and it’s really a perfect anthem for good NYC spring weather.  Really good 80’s dance pop with a heavy jazz influence, a great job on the boards by Willie Green on this digital only piece.  Check the whole record at the Fake Four Distro Bancamp.

JNaturaL – Push Away ft. Eligh

PUSH AWAY COVER

JNatural is back this summer with a new record called Bad Woman Rising with the first leaked track out on her new clothing line’s site HALSEYAN and avail for FREE download for a limited time.  The track features Eligh of Living Legends and produced by Eligh, I know, it’s bizarre right?  So why not check Halseyan and get some new gear for the spring, girl.  Then bump that new new w/Eligh; bitches love Eligh…

Freak Out Friday: Blizzard addition!


Hey Hey!!!  It’s been a minute since I posted here…sorry and such.  I am in the midst of getting snowed in from storm NEMO so I thought “heck I’ll post on the site”.  Got a bunch of goodies to share from homies Willie Green, Baker and celebrate the birth of super producer J Dilla (RIP)…let’s get down to it shall we?

WILLIE GREEN DROPS NEW SINGLE ‘FAST LANE’ ft. BS and ANGIE3

NYC Producer Willie Green (of PremRock & Willie Green) is dropping his lead single from the album ‘We Live in the Future’ today son, today on Bandcamp with a video in the works for Valentine’s Day.  Peep game…

For a good mix of past works, peep the mix Days of Future Past mixed by Mo Niklz 

NEW TRACK FROM OH EMCEE BAKER

One of my favorite homies and mayor of Youngstown, OH has released a new joint that I have seen live and love.  You should too…

CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF SUPER PRODUCER J DILLA

OK I am not going to lie, I am not a Dilla deciple, but I do like alot of the work that he did and feel he shoudl have a place in the annals of Hip-Hop history as well as being an inspiration to countless producers of the present and future.  That said, let’s take a look at the man on his date of birth…

DILLA DONUTS

Pretty much his seminal work as a solo producer, it’s a compilation of short beat tracks and sample laden goldmine.  I used to use the track ‘Light My Fire’, a reworking of The Doors classic in funk style, in a battle routine from days past.  Stones Throw also released a great double LP/Serato tone set called Donut Shop with selected Dilla instrumentals if you are of the collecting and vinyl mentality.  I have a copy and would def recommend copping it…

Donut Shop

Stay safe in the SNOW!!!

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?

Whuttup Wednesday; Tour Edition!!!


Hey Hey!!!  Coming at you live from Starbucks in Portland ME (Ohh how I hate them in real life, but LOVE their internet on tour) for the first date of the Zero Gravity Hip-Hop Mini-Tour.  Looking forward to meeting tons of new peeps, having fun, destroying stages and hopefully selling some GODDAMN CDs.  Well, now that that’s been said…feel free to come out to the dates and get a free Hi5 from yours truely (Low5 costs extra, sorry it’s the economy, talk to Alan Greenspan)!!!  With all the Tour odds and ends to wrap I have slacked on getting all these things I promised done (SXSW 2010; Collected Interviews from the Dirty Dirty, New Ruff Mixes, etc.).  Fear not!!!  Next week will be Choc-A-Bloc full of Halodoesntsuck goodness…now let’s stop with the rambles and get to the meat of the this post…Artist of the Week!!!  This week’s Artist of the Week actually also got mention in my latest edition of Subways & Sidewalks ft. Sketch tha Cataclysm (which you can Listen to HERE…or Download HERE).

ARTIST OF THE WEEK; WILLIE GREEN

Many great producers don’t get the face time they deserve, which is why this week I made a trip behind the boards to catch up with beatsmith extraordinaire, Willie Green. Originally from Hartford, CT, but now residing in Brooklyn, there’s a good chance you’ve heard Green’s work, but just don’t realize it. He has production credits on the Super Chron Flight Bros’ latest album, Cape Verde, and on Premonition’s just released The Build. Green’s latest solo release is Dirty Jordans and when he sat down with me we discussed the album, why he likes the idea of dirty, rather than clean, Jordans, and what he has in common with some other famous Willie Greens, including an NBA player and an organic farm.  For full Article visit Adam’s World Blog...

SEE YOU AT THE SHOWS THIS WEEK!!!!
