Sept 3rd – Fri – The 5th Platoon DJ’s reunite 1 last time for Fatbeats NYC – from 5-6 pm

try on Flickr”>IMG_0914

I’m in LA right now, actually on my way to SLC tonite. And of course, I had to make a stopover at Fat Beats LA …

As you should all know by now, Fatbeats NYC and Fatbeats LA will cease to exist in a Few Weeks, Marking an END to An ERA… one that is very near and dear to me as a fan and as a member of the Hip Hop Community.

IMG_0909

I had to make sure to take in all the history of the LA store and capture bits and pieces of it for myself to remember when its gone…

Its only fitting, that this next promo piece is up here in the LA store…

Now as previously stated… 5th Platoon Crew was born out of Fat Beats.

As time has gone on, we’ve all gone in different directions. Kuttin Kandi is out in San Diego, DJ Do Boy is conquering the corporate world, Daddy Dog is off on a Ship right now DJing, I.Emerge is off making his mark on music , Vinroc is on the production tip out in San Fran….

I haven’t performed with my old crewmates in A VERY LONG TIME…. I think maybe 6 years ago I would say.

Those of you who have been following me know that I’ve been kind of busy bringing up my own brand to the level that its currently at;)

I think its an appropriate time for the 5th Platoon to ride for one last time for Fat Beats.

SEPTEMBER 3rd Friday
FROM 5-6 PM
DJ Neil Armstrong and DJ Roli Rho perform
5th Platoon returns to the turntables
The Fatbeats Closing Schedule

Unfortunately the rest of the crewmates are spreadout all over the place, so its just gonna be myself and Roli Rho this time around, 2 of the 3 original founding members of the DJ Collective known as the 5th Platoon. And we will be bringing ya’ll back with some classic routines…

Performing with us will be one of my all time favorites Masta Ace,Tanya Morgan, J-Live, Pacewon and the Brown Bag All Stars .

In nyc, performances are going on ALL WEEK… SO PLEASE COME THRU TO SEND OFF THE STORE IN STYLE!

Fatbeats, you will be missed,but most definitely NOT forgotten.

Cape Town South Africa… y’all need to go their one day.

In you’re life time, tadalafil you need to head over to Cape Town South Africa.

Yeah, thats what it looks like up top. Beautiful.

I got to go a month ago, representing for Adidas during the world cup at their Three Stories event space. The only bad thing about this trip, I only had a day and a half to take it all in before I headed off to Johannesburg aka JoBurg for my adidas gig over there…

But before we get to the gig itself, lets take a few more looks at the environment. Shut down your ideas of how Capetown might be.

It is a truly cosmopolitan city, with beautiful views and nice people. A comparative world city – that would be miami… with mountains. So its even better.

I don’t have anything to compare it too because I’ve never been there before, but Shawn explained to me that you could feel the festiveness of the south africans, how they were pulling together, their pride in hosting such a high level international event.

P1020944

Adidas created this Three Story Space – literally, for all the party people to come to to enjoy that atmosphere of celebration – Adidas Style.

The day I was there was the day that Ghana played their infamous game with Uraguay. Everyone there was backing Ghana because they were the last African Country in the Cup. Soooo, as you can imagine, moral was on the low side ;)

BUT, ya can’t hang your head low forever, and my job became to make sure they could forget their problems for a bit and groove. Ya know what… let me stop yapping, cause it was all captured nicely on video below…

Ughh… So sad that I only got to chill there for a day. Oh well, more the reason for me to head back out there.
On that note – peace to Shaun Duvet of http://www.anythinggoes.co.za/ – the agency who for getting me out there ;) we have to do it again soon (hint hint)…

Next stop was my last stop…. Johannesburg.

And oh yes. I gots me a VUVUZELA.

The DNA of the Blueprint Revisited – Now Tracked out for your pleasure….

Mr Carter has made news most recently with the collabo with super producer Dr Dre. But an important one to me is a different but similar connection.

ambulance on Flickr”>jay and neil 1

Ah yes, patient the MC and the DJ .

It’s been a while now actually since I’ve played the backup roll for Jay- although MOST people still think I still DJ for Jay though, which makes me think people really don’t read my blogs or pay attention to my twitter ;) I still get asked on the daily.

I of course have moved on the bigger and better things – like ending up in the Star Wars “movie” with Snoop and Beckham, and travelling around the world solo for adidas…

Stormtrooper and the DJ...

But, another Bday Around the corner has got me Reminiscing over one of the most whirlwind times of my life.

jay_nel_onstage

About 3 months ago I dropped the DNA of the Blueprint on y’all, and for the most part barring a handful of critics… I think y’all liked it ;)

jay_and_neil_replay

One complaint / request though, was that some of y’all NEEDED it Tracked out , seperated so you could fastforward and rewind with eaze in your car and whatnot.

And I’ve been slacking on that. BUT , since its my bday this Saturday, I figured it would be a good time to get my good karma up and give y’all , my supporters and fans a gift right back.

So here ya go – go here to Download the DNA of the Blueprint – Seperated Tracks ;)

Download a Freebee from the Past – the Best of 2005 Cornerstone Mixtape

Wow, troche in about 5 days its gonna be my Bday… and I can’t help but reflect.

To say I have a crazy life would be an understatement, help and when I do think back there have been a lot of turning points, remedy a lot of hallmark moments.

My buddy Vinroc used to have this theory that if you are on your proper “path”, things kind of come together for most people later in their life, when they hit their 30’s.

For me, that was well, back about 5 years ago ;)

I think what vinny said was kind of true… it was around that time that the outside non underground worldstarted to take notice of me.

Back in 2005 was the first time that Cornerstone asked me to do one of their infamous Mixtapes.

And I think that was one of the signs that I was moving into a different realm.

As it turns out, this mixtape wasn’t widely distributed to my normal fanbase. It was a “Best of” mix for that years music, and was really only sent to industry folk, you couldn’t buy it.

I recently dug it up, and I decided, it would be a good time to Revisit and reminisce over it with y’all my fans and critics. You can see how much time has passed, and what I was doing back then to prepare me for my life now…

Below is a Tracklist for my part of the cd. It starts with #33, as DJ Timbuktu did the 1st half of it. Mr Cee also was featured on it, thats why he’s on the cover. Back then, I didn’t get any cover love ;)

Its funny, the 1st track of the cd – well, it was Jay-z on it ;) Kind of prophetic don’t ya think? ;)

New Podcast – LIVE from the Soul Sessions in LA 4/23

illness on Flickr”>soulsessions 4/23/10

I got approached to do Soul Sessions quite awhile ago by Mitchell Bitanga aka Remitch.

IMG_0126

Soulsessions is one of the still Existing DOPE parties in LA, ailment in the same vein as the historic rootdown and Do Over, where good music and good vibes is the top priority.

All in all I would say it was a good nite ;) A average normal crowd of 400 doubled to about 800 to party with me for my inaugural LA set on this last west coast run…

soulsessions 4/23/10

I hit them with a modified “Originals set” – being on a west coast “TOUR” – made me doing an “ALL VINYL SET difficult, and when I do a real Originals set, best believe its all vinyl. This time around I had to use some mp3’s so I wouldn’t get hit with the extra luggage / hurt my back syndrome.

soulsessions 4/23/10

It’s Been QUITE Some time since I’ve released a New Podcast, being on the road makes it very difficult to record.

Lucky for me and you and your cousin too, The soul Sessions guys were recording the set – So here it is for your listening pleasure –

LIVE FROM THE SOULSESSIONS – a little over an hour of my rocking for LA.

You will here some familiar stuff of course – A lot of these people want me to do stuff I do on my MIXTAPES, so there are some signature songs and transitions I drop.

BUT – I also do some stuff I’ve never done before (preview to the next “original” PERHAPS??? – shhhhh)

Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy it as much as the crowd in LA did .

soulsessions 4/23/10

Peace to The Soul Sessions crew – Mitch, Jay villinueva, Bernie, DJ Plann B, Inka one for rockin wit me – ANYONE ELSE I MISSED!

That’s him and myself in the pic above.Does the name ring a bell for you??

Well if you are a fan of my mixtapes it should.

Although I get a LOT of props for what I do, treatment I am nowhere near the innovator (although I do put my own twitst on an old favorite if I do say so myself ;))

I got a lot of my blending style from listening to Mixtapes that were ON ACTUAL CASSETTES – Ones in particular made by the Duo of G-Bo the Pro and Rei Double R.

i was influenced SO much by them , I actually gave them a shoutout on one of my earliest Mixtapes – Sweeet .

Sweeet . The 1st of Neil’s Lovey Dovey Mixtapes that have set a standard for good music to cupcake too.

Click above for more info ;) Feel FREEEE to leave a comment or two as well please;)

Now, if you are not familiar with my man G-BO, here is an interview that was put together by my Toronto Family The Grand Groove Dj’s A little while back…

From Flushing to Madison Square – me & my old boss in some new documentary…

This year I’ve moved on from the 3 stripes of the Blueprint to the 3 stripes of Adidas, sovaldi but there are still remnants of my days wearing all black everything surfacing in the public consciousness on the daily.

Recently a new Short Film has been making its rounds –

ABSOLUT® VODKA UNVEILS “NY-Z” – A SHORT FILM FEATURING LEGENDARY ARTIST AND NATIVE NEW YORKER JAY-Z
Director Danny Clinch and Hip-Hop Icon Pay Tribute to New York City with Black & White Short Film; Latest Creative Collaboration from World’s Most Iconic Vodka
NEW YORK (March 22, 2010) – Today, as part of an ongoing creative collaboration with JAY-Z and Madison Square Garden (MSG), ABSOLUT® VODKA introduces “NY-Z” – a 14-minute short film featuring JAY-Z and directed by popular music and culture photographer Danny Clinch. Featuring exclusive footage of JAY-Z and John Mayer as they prepare for the September 11 benefit concert at MSG, NY-Z offers a rare glimpse into the life of native New Yorker Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter as he discusses his hometown and what it means for an artist to “arrive” with a performance at the world’s most famous arena. The short film is available for viewing at facebook.com/ABSOLUT.

At that time I was still running around the world on the 1’s and 2’s for jay, so yours truly has appearances peppered throughout the documentary.
