Counting down to the new mixtape by releasing 2 Original for free…

Mid June right around my birthday I’m releasing a new mixtape – Original part 5 . In the meantime to get y’all ready for the release I’m re-releasing the previous chapters in the “Original” mixtape series. Up next – 2 Original.

I believe I made it back in 2001/2002 . It follows the theme of the first mixtape – going back and forth between hip hop songs and the sampled music they originated from. The theme of the mixtape wasn’t anything new, discount but something like this hadn’t been done by a member of the turntablist battle community. Heavy on the scratching, all the original samples came off of real vinyl. These were the days before mp3’s and broadband allowed everyone to have the same music, so making this mixtape required some real digging.

How Style Wars helped me make Warmfuzzy and the All Out King mixtape series

After I did the Sweeet Series, clinic I had this bright idea to try to make 6 mixtapes in 6 months. I was going to call it the “All Out King” mixtape series. I did end up making the series, tadalafil but it took me about 7 years to finish.

lf you specialize in one thing,
you really can’t call yourself an all-out king. – min one from style wars

minone

This quote from Min one became the whole idea for the new series. I was going to showcase my range of music knowledge by creating mixtapes of different genres. To be the music equivalent of a graffiti all out king.

And from this quote, Warmfuzzy, Filthy, Extraordinary, Oscillate Wildly, Music For When Nobody’s Looking and Original All Out king were Born. Each mixtape part of the same series BUT of very distinctive genres / subject matter. At that time it wasn’t that common place. You were not going to here De La Soul and the Cure on the same mixtape, unless it was in like a kitchy/campy sort of mash up way. The intent of these mixes was to keep the original integrity of the music and figure out how to connect everything.

First up in this was my valentine’s day mix warm fuzzy. We just gave it an official release via thefuture.fm

Shouts out to Haena Kang who did the artwork for the whole mixtape series.

If you like what you hear now, you can purchase a physical copy of the mix by clicking the “add to cart button” , the perfect gift for a music lover for Feb 14th and everyday.

G-bo the pro & Rei Double R inspired me to make the sweeet series…

Sweeet Part 2 , site the “sequel” to sweeet . I put that in quotes because, technically Bittersweeet is the sequel… but whatevers. At some point I guess there will be a bittersweeet part 2 etc etc. Like spin-offs from tv episodes. Think of it like that.

If you haven’t heard it yet you can hear it hear via thefuture.fm.

I made sweeet part 2 in 2009, and previous to that the last mixtape (oscillate wildly) I made was in like 2006. So It had been a 3 year hiatus between creative projects, and 7 years since the 1st sweeet dropped.

In between that period a lot had things had happened. I was already on tour with Jay-z. Mash-ups were no longer the buzz, and dubstep had just reared its head for the early adopters to jump on.

With Sweeet part 2 I wanted to bring back some nostalgia and really tie the 1st two mixtapes together. So first I used a picture from the same batch of photos for the cover. In case you were wondering, the baby pictures used for all my covers are pictures of me as a child. Yes, I was wearing a plaid suit coat.

The next thing I did, was contact G-Bo The Pro.

Now for those of you who don’t know, G-bo and his old partner Rei Double R were responsible for some amazing mixtapes and a great influence on yours truly. So much so, that on the liner notes of sweeet, I shouted them out. They inspired the whole style of djing that I did for Sweeet. As time went on I actually got to meet both of them, and eventually was able to call my heroes peers.

g-bo the pro

For sweeet part 2 , I enlisted the help of G-Bo, to do a drop for the new mix, to tie everything together and to give homage to one of the guys that inspired me to do what I do . His appearance can be found at about 4:24 of the mixtape , where he tells ya’ll that we’re “Blending, not Mashing”. This was the first time I had ever used a “drop” on one of my mixtapes.

g-bo the pro

Big shouts to these two mixtape pioneers. If you’ve ever enjoyed anything I’ve done, you can thank these guys for paving the way.

Peace out Jay Leno show…

Another one of our tv icons is moving on to their next chapter. One of my fond memories was getting to perform on his short lived “Jay Leno” Show during my run with Jay-Z . If y’all remember, treatment this was right after the infamous Taylor Swift incident with Kanye West at the VMA awards.

Smoove – the mixtape that got me known as a “Mash Up” DJ…

The countdown to Valentine’s Day continues, cheap with the official digital streaming release of Smoove via thefuture.fm.

If you’ve been under a rock for the last 13 years and haven’t heard it yet, here it is for your listening pleasure.

This is one of my early mixes where I started incorporating a larger music spectrum . Led Zeppelin all of my love, mixed with the instrumental from Biggie’s One More Chance for example. For a lack of a better label, this got me known as a dreaded “MASH UP” DJ.

I’ve never really liked that term, but I understood. The time was different. So crazy how different things are today. In 2014, some of the grammy’s best performances were “mash-ups”. Like Imagine Dragons x Kendrick Lamar.

The influence of hip hop, of Hip Hop Djing culture on music as a whole is pretty amazing.

Bittersweeet got me my first meeting with Damon Dash & Rocafella records…

Today for the first time Bittersweeet is available officially via digital delivery. Its been floating around the internet for quite some time now, ailment but because of thefuture.fm everything is all nice and legal, viagra AND I’ll be able to get all the artists that are featured on the mixtape payed ;)

Thinking back I would say that Bittersweeet was probably my favorite mixtape that got me a lot of attention… which was pretty strange for the time period. My background was as a battle DJ. A Hip Hop DJ. So I was supposed to play Wu-Tang. Definitely not love songs.

But I always dared to be different, sickness and this mixtape ended up in the hands of some pretty important folk.

Among those people was a person named Ashley Nicoles, who at the time happened to be Damon Dashes and Jay-z’s personal assistant. Through him I imagine, the mixtapes made their way up the rocafella food chain, and according to word of mouth stories they ended up in the hands of Mr Carter, and Damon Dash.

In fact, I had a meeting via Ashley sometime in 2004 with Damon Dash, which for me being a turntablist DJ was just a crazy unimaginable eye opening experience. It was a very short conversation. Damon was in the middle of a lot of business, he said “I like your work”, and kept it moving.

After that, I got a call from another music executive at Rocafella, Mr Kenny Burns, who was running “RocMusic” – the rocafella label with “non”hiphop artists. We had a longer meeting, and I ended up making this mixtape, that never really came out, because right around the time it should have come out, was when Rocafella records fell apart.

Now this is in the age before twitter, before social media was so crazy. This was before camera phones and smartphones, pre selfie era. So I don’t have much documentation of what went down. All I have is what I remember, and this cover of the Rocafella mixtape that I made that would never be released.

rocmusic

Here’s another blast from the past – A review by one of the “DJ” magazines that was around called Tablist.

tablist-rocmusic

So that was my first encounter with Rocafella Records, and unfortunately at the time it wasn’t the greatest experience. I made this mixtape, put a lot of work and effort and time into it, had delusions of grandeur of maybe working with one of rocafellas artists , and then… nothing.

Years later, in 2008, I ended up Djing for Mr. Carter. Sometimes Nice guys don’t finish last ;)

And now, for those who haven’t heard it yet, or haven’t heard it in years –

The foundation of my career has always been making mixtapes, and I was never able to get them officially online for digital delivery because of the legal issues… until now ;)

I’ve joined thefuture.fm , a digital platform that allows me to not only stream my mixtapes legally, but also gets the artists whose music is on my mixes paid.

From thefuture.fm website –

We built a platform for you to listen to all the best mixes in the world. For you to discover new music. For you to enjoy music non-stop. For you to find high quality music in every genre. We want to give you the most professional DJs; DJs that not only play at the most exclusive events, the best clubs and the biggest festivals around the world, but also up and coming producers scouted from all over the net.

But we didn’t stop there. We also created technology that doesn’t exist anywhere else. Technology that lets you learn what songs you’re listening to, and buy them if you love them. Because we’re streaming only for one reason; so that we can track the songs that get played and pay royalties to the artists who’s music you enjoy.

Helping you find the best music
Promoting the DJs who curate it
Hooking up the artists who made it

That’s what we’re about.

We reached our $25,000 goal! Thank you for making Strength in Numbers a Reality…

A little while ago I contributed some cuts to a song by Chops .

Now if ya don’t know, ailment Chops was part of a group called the mountain brothers , the first Asian-American hip-hop group to sign to a major label (Ruff House/Sony Music) back in the late ’90s.

Below is the artwork for the song we did called Revolution featuring Kiwi, Ruby Ibarra, Ann One and yours truly.

Want to hear it? peep it here on Hypetrak who debut it yesterday.

This song is part of a project called Strength in Numbers.

Strength in Numbers - Revolution

From his website

About 3 years back, I noticed amazing Asian American artists making waves, and rekindled an old dream: a project with ALL strong Asian talent! Artists today who go through many of the things my group did, overcoming the same obstacles, same struggles, pushing forward, and going beyond.

I spent 2 YEARS making music with over 30 of the best Asian American rappers and singers, with special guests from Japan and Korea

This is my chance, OUR chance, to make a statement together… with undeniably talented artists who stand for great music.

– Chops

strength in Numbers project

So you’ve heard the song Revolution that I did cuts for.

The songs for the album are done. The music is made. But in order for this project to become a physical reality, we need your help.

Please check out the #Strengthinnumbers Kickstarter Page.

We are proud to announce that you fans made this project a reality! Thank you every each one of you who have supported and listened to the work done on this album….

Heineken is putting one of y’all on a voyage , and Hypebeast has your essentials for the trip #DROPPED

Hypebeast #DROPPED Essentials
Boys and girls – I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in helping launch the Heineken Voyage . What is that exactly??

From the Website

Heineken Voyage, the fifth chapter of Heineken’s global Legends campaign. Heineken will search the globe for four men who embody the “Legendary Traveler” and send them on voyages around the world to challenge them to travel outside their comfort zone. One of these travelers will be from the US.

A true “Man of the World” is never a tourist, but rather knows how to travel with finesse. This concept of voyaging with purpose – being able to be “Dropped” anywhere in the world and incept a legendary journey – is at the core of Heineken‘s latest global adventure program. Packing heavy isn’t the look. Instead, discerning globetrotters bring a select set of objects with them on their trips, guaranteed to enhance their memories no matter where they end up. Stories are woven not just by being in the right place at the right time, but also through open–minded preparedness. For Heineken’s #DROPPED program, the international brand’s panel of experts got together over dinner in New York City to pick out their travel essentials, all of which are to be chronicled in more detail in upcoming vignettes exclusive to Hypebeast. Over the next six days one vignette featuring each expert will drop each day including Jon Buscemi, Dao-Yi Chow, Richard Martin, DJ Neil Armstrong, Marcus Troy and Jonathon Mannion. They will talk about travel, offer travel tips as well as chose travel essentials including everything from a large format film camera and audio recorder for chronicling adventures to a cheeky bathing suit, tuxedo and waterproof driving moccasins to ensure ultimate accessorizing, regardless of what continent it’s taking place on.

The Heineken Dropped campaign is a global initiative to launch the Heineken Voyage.
