Damn, I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog. Thanks to the folks who've been checking on the regular and everyone leaving comments (even the dude who tried to shoot an anonymous dis @ my PUTS remix - I see you).

Happy New Year! Here's to doing it big in '09!

Black on White Affair - Auld Lang Syne (Light in the Attic)

Have fun and be safe, peoples!

Damn, I think that might be the longest gap between posts ever. I've been in LA for the past few days working with Exile. Expect another post later tonight or tomorrow.
We now resume our regularly scheduled programming.

The Home Stretch

Just in the nick of time, my Marvin Gaye edit made it into O-Dub's 2008 year-in-review over at Soulsides. Big thank you to him and everyone who's bought the record (it sold out in less than a week. Not sure how many more will be pressed).

I'll be posting my own "Best Of" list before the end of year. My kids are out of school so if you're wondering why I'm not as thorough lately, see the post below...

Merry Merry prt. 2

More holiday cheerz. Yay.

Haha, for real, this season is always stressful, so here's a few cuts to play while getting drunk with your co-workers, djing for drunken co-workers, hanging ornaments on your tree, lighting your kinara or menorah, or just plain trying to grab some ass under the misletoe. I GOT YOU.

Catalist - Soulful Christmas

Milly & Silly - Getting Down For Xmas

& my all time favorite...

Donny Hathaway - This Christmas

BTW - Check out my man Catalist. He's one of the most talented people I know. Real speak.

What's Going On

Now available @ TTLab

Just to clear some things up... I've been reading about how I added this and that to the song - I did not add any additional music to this. I just re-arranged some of the music and added an alternate vocal track of his, then harmonized it with parts of the OG. I originally made this just for myself, but someone heard it and wanted to put it out, so I did.
Marvin Gaye is the G.O.A.T. to me and I didn't want to mess with what, to me, is a perfect song. Hopefully people understand where I'm coming from with this and realize it's not about anything I did, but bringing certain elements of his into focus.

Found another blend I did a while back of Kaya + Quantic. Simple and plain mang, but it works.
