Back Together Again

Next Thursday marks the one year anniversary of my weekly party, ¡Reunión! at The Ace Hotel, and what better way to have it than a true reunion with my brother Rip One and the Innernational Crew. This will definitely be one of the books! LA/IE heads make the drive out and don't miss a rare chance to see a legendary DJ plus surprise guests for free! Stay at The Ace and get a discounted room rate (code:Reunion).

Much love to our past guests, DJ Nu-Mark, King Most, Thes One, Exile, The Gaslamp Killer, Huggs, DJ Eleven, DJ Magneto, Jamie Strong (The Do-Over), O-Dub, Jeremy Sole (KCRW), Mr. Supreme, Doc Delay, and Ohmega Watts.

I still remember buying this tape at Beat Non Stop and buggin' the fuck out. I got home and called the number on the back and the rest is INL history...

Brothas Under Madness

This shit still goes.

LTD - Love to The World (DJ Day re-edit) by DJDay

Trying out this Soundcloud thing (forgot I even had an account!). Here's a re-edit I did of LTD's classic a few years ago. Straight to the point on this one, but it never fails.
