Like the Americans, every artist on this cd has “roots” in jersey. Yes – even SugarHill Gang, one of the pioneer hip hop groups was originally from Englewood NJ. The Song ‘Beggin’ by Newark born Frankie Valli came out in 1967 when The Americans made their ABA debut.

Shouts to Packer Shoes and adidas for bringing this all together.

Rising Bay Area female emcee Hopie has powers on the mic and beyond,
with a doctorate from U.C. Hastings and skills in everything from
violin to spoken word to guitar. Her debut album, Diamond Dame,
garnered national attention and a nomination for URB’s Next 1000,
immediately making Hopie an artist to watch.

MICROPIXIE // micropixie.com
Made in Bombay, born & raised in the U.K., and based in San Francisco,
Micropixie (aka MPX) is an experimental recording artist whose style
can’t be confined to any one genre. Described as sensuous and

Ugly”.

Oh what a night.

A lot of y’all came through, illness and TRIED to come through to my anniversary party for the 10 year anniversary of “Original”, troche brought to you by adidas last week in NYC.

Basically, it got super packed super quick, AND the person in charge of the door at the club (which I won’t even name here) was the opposite of cool.

Below is a video that recaps the event , which included some of the worlds finest DJ’s on the wheels…

I didn’t get a chance to take pictures that nite so i had to “borrow” some below. Shoot, I didn’t even get to DJ the event. Trouble with the venue kept me from getting on the wheels (if you wish to know the details I would be GLAD to BLAB. ;) ) However as you see from above, the crowd didn’t miss a step.

Big shouts to DJ Daddy Dog my crewmate from the 5th platoon days, DJ Total Eclipse – my mentor, member of the X-ecutioners / MOTM season 2 , G-bo the Pro mixtape legend who was the original architect of my style , DJ Spinna – the DJ who inspired “Original” , and Questlove.

Do y’all know that in a previous life, health one of the jobs I held was “director of operations” for one of those pesky year 2000 internet startups. I got laid off, order decided to not go back to work and devoted my energy to DJing. The world acts in mysterious ways ;)

Regardless, I’m still a geek and gadget nerd for life, so getting any type of mention on gizmodo or any respectable technology site would fall under those things that would be reallllly cool.

Through a bit of luck, a picture taken by fellow tweeter @everydaydude of yours truly chillin in front of reed space nyc , ended up being used by a bunch of tech blogs to tell the world about Twitter’s new image gallery feature.

Much love to @Urbmag for giving me spot number 9 for their Lollapalooza list of can’t miss acts .

From the article –

We first got to know this member of NYC’s 5th Platoon crew as Jay-Z touring DJ and a maker of many of our favorite mixtapes. But the always affable jock (and Adidas spokesperson) has been stepping out on his own lately, physician helping to fill a fairly large gap in the hip-hop DJing circuit. Equal parts DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff and Funkmaster Flex, Armstrong delivers New York style DJing to Chicago for his Lollapalooza debut.

Chicago… Let’s get it on baby. See y’all at Grant Park.

From the website

Founded by two New Yorkers in 2010 that were fed up with the mundane-ness of their existence and noticing a void in the traditional magazine world, they decided to take a risk and pool their talents to create something they and their peers would enjoy reading. Inspired by the NYC downtown scene, and ever-evolving art world, these two individuals aptly named Kelvin and Igor, came up with something that would fuse their diverse interests. The result was a contemporary lifestyle culture magazine with an adult twist called Goodies…,

San Fran love from Mixcrate.com , Fully Laced, No Rival, Adapt and Breezy Excursion

Dj Neil Armstrong interview for Mixcrate.com from OpenLineMedia on Vimeo.

One of the Last times I was out in the bay I linked up with the cats from Mixcrate.com and chopped it up about with Marc “Owl Boogie” Aure at Fully Laced fashion boutique in San Francisco to discuss what young dj’s need to do in order to succeed in the music industry.

As stupid as my expression is for the still that vimeo used to represent the video, buy viagra the interview is still pretty helpful I think for those who are aspiring for more… so don’t use my strange grill piece to judge the content of the video please ;)

Much props 1st off to Romedigs and Jerome Palencia for puttin the vid together for the site.

ALSO much props to Fully Laced, find No Rival, Adapt Clothing, and Breezy Excursion for the Gear Flow.

For my cali folk, especially the Yay Area supa Giant’s fans , these guys put out a lot of stuff to show how you put on for your city…

Much love to Fully Laced for their dope shop at the top of a foggy hill in an area of SF I had never been to before ;)

They have my mixtapes for sale at the Spot, by the way ;)

If you are in the bay area, make sure to make this a must visit destination spot for the snap back hats, collectibles, and dope gear (and dope mixtapes!!!) …

Check out my swag yo, I chill out wit ballplayers – The Rookie photoshoot….

Since I think 2006 one of my all time favorite gigs has been the NBA Rookie PhotoShoot.

Why?? Because I get to chillout and play music all day for the future stars of professional Basketball. Thats me and that dude from the supersonic’s Durant something or other when he was a rookie.

cure on Flickr”>durant_and_neil

Last year I had to miss it because I was running around the world with Mr. Carter, view but this year I wasn’t going to miss the festivities…

In the past years it tends to be fun, purchase and what people seem to easily forget, is that most of these rookies are just kids… probably cause they’re about 20 feet taller then the average person.

I needed to stand on a chair to be on eye level with them. Stupid tall people.

only if I stand on a chair am I at eye level. Freakin monster people.

Being that these guys are Huge Kids, they’re favorite songs are the current slurry of hits – In this case, I played Teach them how to Dougie about 5 times, and of course all the southern slang I had in my computer…

When those songs hit… well, the players start whylin out.

DeMarcus Cousins

The top Cutup of this squad, was DeMarcus Cousins, a gold star to john wall too. Wouldn’t be suprised if he ends up on Dancing with the stars when he retires…

THEN, its usually a quick step away to them wanting to “Learn” How to DJ… or at least… Look like they know how to DJ.

DeMarcus Cousins, Lance Stephenson, derrick favors

YEAH, I LOOK LIKE A LITTLE PERSON. SHUT DA HELL UP.

Anyways, it always turns into a hot mess….

This situation usually ends up getting some “Real NBA News Coverage” –

Screen shot 2010-08-23 at 1.40.37 PM

The folk over at http://dimemag.com/put this one up –

And of course, I get to interact and meet with the future players of the NBA.

One person in particular that was cool to meet was Jeremy Lin , who is I’m pretty sure… the 1st Asian American to play for the NBA.

Jeremy lin discussing nerdy stuff with me

Jeremy Lin

For the most part, its him and a bunch of black dudes…. Yeah, I can relate to that.

HOTC pics from Lenny S

Still, I’m a fan of the game and the players and their bright futures… so yes I got some autographs and flicks, and got to share my craft with them…

Partying til the sun came up in Frankfurt…

Below is another “day in the life” type video from my 24 hours in Frankfurt Germany on June 26th at the rooftop of the 25 Hour Hotel.

Julian Middlebrookspretty much captured the whole thing beauuutifully for L’Agentur & the IMA Clique, search for what can only be described as the party of the year in Frankfurt… so far ;)

If ya in a hurry, prescription you can just watch the clip above, but i love to babble so I’ll give y’all a bit more…

Jumpin on a train from Zurich, I arrived at the 25 hour hotel and found one of the COOLEST Hotels I’ve had the opportunity to be in… and I’ve been in MANY, so I think you can trust my opinion.

frankfurt trainin it

P1020697

The 25 hour hotel in frankfurt is a beautiful hotel, with basically all the decor put together by Levi’s from what I understand, which is in the same “complex”….

P1020698

Decor is nice, posh but not snot…

And the rooms were pretty funky, with this whole beatles themed yellow submarine hippy feel, as you can see in this little Point of view video –

The party itself was conveniently held on the roof of the hotel as the main dancefloor, and the courtyard era below as well –

The roof top

The party was jam jam packed. and it didn’t end until the sun came up…

According to what they all told me, this was DEFINITELY a Party that went down in history.

We were up until 5:30 in the morn, still stomping… which doesn’t happen in Frankfurt usually, not with the Hip Hop / Soul / Music Heads….

Peep the Video right here to be a witness –

SHoot. Someone even lost a shoe!

Now thats what we call a party.

Peace too Andi Schulz and Jack Sehn in advance … I “borrowed” some facebook pics y’all posted up! .

Guys, thank you for making my trip to Frankfurt one of my most memorable. I CAN’T WAIT until the next time :)

The Made Space – “Visions of Visionaries” Interview…

You guys remember when I went out to berlin and I went to that crazy MADE space with the thingy and the dome and the crazy lights???

buy cialis on Flickr”>IMG_0781

When I was there they did a nice little interview that they recently put up on their made blog – called “Visions for Visionaries”.

Here it is below. I like this one a lot, cheap more personal, more about the life….

VISIONS OF VISIONARIES WITH NEIL ARMSTRONG | MADE from MADE Blog on Vimeo.

For our latest “Visions of Visionaries” we got together with acclaimed dj Neil Armstrong to talk about his passion for music, how it all got started, his work with Jay-Z and much more.

It’s always surprising to see for us from which background some artists actually come from. I mean who would have thought that once a chemical engineer will be spinning Hip Hop tunes for the inauguration of the first black President of the United States?!

Stop dreaming. It’s real!
