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.

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….

Sample of the new Valentine’s Day Mixtape ‘Turn down…’ – Drake x Montell Jordan…

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and DJ Neil Armstrong is at it again, online with a new mixtape to provide the soundtrack for your Feb 14th .

As always, look Mr. Armstrong likes to bridge the gap between the old and the new.
This is the intro sample of the mixtape , malady extended out into a “full length” mp3, downloadable for free – a remix of Drake’s Hold on we’re going home .

On Feb 14th, Neil Armstrong will be releasing the mixtape exclusively via thefuture.fm – http://www.tinyurl.com/djnaxthefuturefm.

If you happen to be in NYC Wednesday Feb 12th, come thru and hear a sneak peak of the new mixtape a few days early and have a early valentine’s day dinner at Fat Buddha in the LES for his “Dinner & A Mixtape” event.

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.

For those who missed it – Hypetrak presents Sweeet Part 3 FREE in its entirety…

New Jersey, arguably the most slept on state of our country. This mixtape, like the sneaker release is all about giving props to Packer shoes, and Jersey’s forgotten history.

The Team Now known as the Brooklyn Nets has moved around quite a bit. But before they were called the NETS, they were called the Americans in the American Basketball Association.
And the Americans Played in Teaneck New Jersey from 67 – 68.

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.
