Tonight begins a new weekly I'll be doing at The Ace (the new spot was just ranked one of the Top 10 Hotel Bars in the World by Details) Expect a mix of everything new and old from funk to folk, house to hip hop, dub/step to disco (you know how I do) etc. There will also be monthly surprise guests. More info soon so stay tuned.

In other news...I just started a remix for Quantic for his latest album, Tradition in Transition which should be out sometime in the 1st quarter. Still working on my album (for real tho!) as well as a few possible side projects I've gotta keep under wraps for now.

I'm trying to get in as many posts as I can during the week. A much deserved and overdue thanks to everyone who's stuck with me since I've started the blog. Your emails and comments are much appreciated.

HEATROCKS FOR HAITI is having a record auction to raise money for the victims of the Haiti quake (over $13,000 so far!) with all proceeds going to charity. If you want to have a chance to cop some raer, or want to put an item up yourself, please go here. I put up a copy of The Rubaiyat of Dorothy Ashby if anyone is interested.

Last but not least...I just found a demo version I made of "Gone Bad" and figured I'd put it up for the hell of it. It's mad short (I don't even remember making it), but it's looped up for Serato heads if you want to play it out. It's bugged to think what kind of direction the song could have gone. I probably should've finished this one, eh?

Didn't I...

Some might call this blasphemy, and others (like me) will call it dope. The homie Trishes just sent over his DJ edit/remix of Darondo's "Didnt' I" and it works surprisingly well. This, along with his take on Bill Withers' "Make a Smile For Me", will be dropping soon on The Loud Minority's new record label TLM. If you're ever in Vienna, check their night at Cafe Leopold for the illest party in the city and be sure to keep an eye out for the 7" (ll).

Enjoy and have a good weekend, y'all...

This pretty much sums up the vibe of Short Bus @ The Ace (every Sunday!). If you're in town this weekend be sure to come through.

2 more days...

Before the long awaited collabo between Serato and Ableton is unveiled. As a long time user of both (every remix I've ever done was made with Ableton), I'm anxious to see what they come up with. I won't go in on the rumors, but I'll leave you with this (shout out to the homie Recloose).

Coachella Valley/IE - you don't wanna miss this.


I know these guys have been blogged about/talked about, yadda yadda, but this is for the remaining few out there who haven't heard of The Natural Yogurt Band.

Their album (I say "their" because all the info I can find is that it's two dudes from the UK), Away With Melancholy originally came out on Jazzman and was picked up by Now Again for a stateside release. If you're a fan of library/Dusty Fingers/Clutchy Hopkins type records, this is for you.
