This Is The Re-Mux

April 3, 2008 Comments off

Thanks to a Twitter post from Sarah Lane I got hipped to a site called MuxTape, where you can upload your MP3’s and make a “mix tape” to share with your friends over the internets. It’s kind of like You Tube but for music, and it lets you create a play list so that you can set the song order.

I gotta tell you that I’m lovin the concept, being a DJ I have come across plenty of songs that I’ve wanted to share with others. Unfortunately other than having them buy the CD solely on my recommendation or illegally download the song (something that I would never endorse) I haven’t really found a good way do this… until now!

So I’ve taken the liberty of uploading a couple of songs that I’ve remixed or extended for play in the club. Most of them stem from the original being just way too damn short to get away with playing or from the “No Rap Rule” we have. So keep in mind that these songs were intended to be played in a strip club and have hot stripper chicks dancing to them while they play… hehehe

Admittedly I’m no professional when it comes to remixing a song, but I’m kinda proud of what I’ve been able to do so far, and inevitably whenever I play one in the club someone always asks about it. Always makes me feel good when something I did just to satisfy the curiosity of rather I could do it or not gets me a little praise from total strangers. I’m generally a shy person, but when you get me in the DJ booth I love to show off, and in a gentleman’s club if you can get the customers to shift their attention from the ½ naked woman on the stage to the 300 lbs Mexican guy in the DJ booth… you’ve gotta be doing something!

Anyway, without further a due… here’s my MuxTape and the play list:

AFI – Prelude 12/21
Digital Underground – April Showers
Kid Rock & Metallica – American Bad Ass (Sad But True)
I.C.P. – Fire Rain

Old School

November 30, 2007 3 comments

OK, so a couple of old friends stopped by the club the other day, and I’m talkin’ “old friends”, I’ve known these two since Jr. High or longer. We got on the subject of music and what we used to listen to “back in the day”, and… well, lets see if these don’t take you back to a “Jr. High Dance” or two (if they don’t, then your too fuckin’ young to be reading my blog anyway, LOL).

Candyman

I remember when I first realized how old I was: I was on Napster (when it used to be free) looking for a song by Slick Rick, and I couldn’t remember the name of it. So I figured that I would just pop into the rap chat room and ask. Everybody in there claimed to “know” old school, so I tried to explain how the song went, and was met with “Slick Rick? Who’s that?” “I wasn’t even alive in the 80s” “I thought you meant old school like Dr. Dre – G Thang!”

Fuckin’ twerps! I was still listening to that album at that time.

Anyway the song I was lookin’ for was Slick Rick – I Shouldn’t Have Done It and apparently they won’t let me post it in my blog, so you have to click the link to see it, or just enjoy this other video
