Pre-Order SidePiece Valentine’s Mixtape Now – Shipping Sept 26th

Everyday except Feb 14th is SidePiece Valentine’s Day… so let’s celebrate. Pre-Order Now.

ExtraOrdinary Part 2 is HERE. Available on USB cassette & Digital DL

10 years ago i Made this mix called ExtraOrdinary.

NOW, Part 2 is HERE.

3-Panel_JCard_FRONT_AI

From the liner Notes :
It’s kinda fresh you listen to more than hip-hop…

10 years ago I dropped the mixtape ExtraOrdinary as part of the “all out king” mixtape series. What was on it? Groups like 10, stuff 000 Maniacs, The Doors, Nirvana, & Laura Branigan. Basically a lot of artists that fall outside the realm of urban music. At the time, the usual way of integrating “non hip hop” into the mix was the every popular “mashup”. But on this mix there was none of that. Regardless, it was mixed with a hip hop aesthetic, with the songs flowing into one another seamlessly.

The point of making it was to show that good music is good music. I was trying to get people out of their comfort zone, or maybe realize that the box that they were in musically could be a lot bigger if they were open to it. I’m sure when people heard it some were suprised and not interested. But others have told me that ExtraOrdinary was one of their favorites.

Part 2 is meant to carry on the tradition. Music that isn’t funk, but is funky in its own way. Songs that wouldn’t be considered soul but can still make you feel something. There are songs on here that you will know just because they are part of the pop stream of consciousness. Some of the songs are gems waiting for your eats to discover them.

They are all songs that will be out of the ordinary…
ExtraOrdinary.

“You gotta do everything… If you specialize in one thing, you really can’t call yourself an All Out King.”

For A LIMITED TIME,we have brought the price of ExtraOrdinary Part 2 Cassette USB back to $15 Dollars.

FROM THE LINER NOTES :

Feb 14th 2005… how time flies.

I made this mixtape on that date, with this written in the liner notes:

For the next hour, I need you to open up your minds a little somethin. This is the 1st of the AOK Series. You see – you gotta do everything, if you specialize in just one thing, you can’t call yourself an ALL OUT KING. This may be somewhat of a stretch for all y’all who are used to their music in neat little packets. We’re taking a trip, and you’re probably going to hear things your not used to. Don’t worry, I won’t hit you over the head too hard, we’ll do this in babysteps…

This one’s called Warmfuzzy, like the feeling. It’s to “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, but if you’re as pimp as you think you are, this cd should be good all yr round.

At that time, music wasn’t quite this multi-genre stew it is today. Kanye West and Paul McCartney weren’t dropping collabo songs. Miley Cyrus wasn’t making music w/ Juicy J. But on the Warmfuzzy mix, there was everything on it – from Coldplay to Queen to Al Green to Slum Village, mixed NOT in the usual “mash-up” fashion of the time, but in a distinctly tasteful way that made everything cohesive. The subject matter for all the music was that “crazy little thing called Love”. Love kept warmfuzzy together.

After it’s release it became one of the mixes I was most well known for, and also the one that was my favorite to create.

This mix you hold here is Warmfuzzy part 2. Although 10 yrs have passed, the infinite pursuit still goes on. May this be the soundtrack to the next chapters in your story. I’ll still be right here with you…

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.

thumb on Flickr”>Food Republic Instagram Takeover

From the website – www.foodrepublic.com

Food Republic. This is a company and a website founded on the idea that guys everywhere are putting food at the center of their lives like never before. Whether you’re a casual cook, help a pro, or you don’t set foot in the kitchen unless starvation is creeping in and that months-old package of ramen in the cupboard is more appealing than the drive to the nearest fast-food joint, chances are you think about food a lot.

For my fans who follow me on instagram and facebook, you know I love food. Love to cook it, love to take pictures of it, and definitely love to eat it.

My life as a DJ has given me the opportunity to travel the world, and on the way I’ve eaten a thing or two or ten that I would normally not get a chance to sample.

For the next 2 weeks @foodrepublic is letting me TakeOver there instagram, to share with you some of the food and experiences I’m having while out here on the other side of the world in asia.

For my foodie travellers, I’ll be showing you guys and gals stuff to add to your eating bucketlists.

You will get to see some local eats from Tokyo and Kyoto Japan, Seoul Korea, Shanghai China, Hong Kong and Beijing .

A Happy Traveller is a well Fed one.

Packer Shoes is one of my favorite sneaker spots for sure, generic and this last event is one of the reasons why.

In 2004 famously wore two different colors of his adidas T-Mac3 representing the east and the west in the All Star Game.

This year they got retroed, and non other than Tracy McGrady himself to celebrate at the store in Teaneck New Jersey. Fans both new and old came thru, waited patiently online to cope their own pairs…

I of course made sure to cope a pair for myself, which I got signed by the man T-Mac.

And I of course brought some gifts for Mr. McGrady too .

Usually i try to wear my kicks at least once… but I think this pair is going on display right now ;)

For valentine’s Day we gonna turn down…

pills on Flickr”>turn-down

Another mix for valentine’s day and everyday. This one is all ‘new’ artists and music. No song is over 5 years old. I often here folk complain about the state of new music. There is still great stuff out there, you just have to look for it ;)

I ran into a lot of technical difficulties today, so for until 10 PM Eastern Standard Time I will streaming the new mix FREE via thefuture.fm After that, it will be available via Subscription to thefuture.fm and also via Digital Download at the DJ Neil Armstrong website. In the meantime, enjoy the free stream….
