After remixing Outkast’s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” into a big room, electro anthem earlier this year (“Spottie”), Manik and I decided next we would take on The Beastie Boys’ “Root Down” for our next Hellafine remix. This is one of those tracks that always worked at b-boy parties, but we wanted to be able to play it in [cont.]
The aim of “Back To Skool” was to do a classic hip-hop mix, built around today’s generation of emcees. Virtually all of the tracks on this mix invoke the old school hip-hop feeling, yet everything here was recorded within the last year or so. Some are freestyles over classic beats, others full on remakes, while [cont.]
We prank called our friends at Turntable Lab back in 2005. Here is the end result.

There is a fine art to opening. Having played alongside artists like Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Dada Life, and others, the opening set can be quite a challenge for some.

He also discusses his new electronic imprint, Tribute The Label, as well as reuniting with Cage for a new EP.
I did this mix and photoshoot a few months back, and for whatever reason have been holding it in the vault for a while. I’ve always been about not “playing the Beatport top ten” on my mix CD’s, so this one has a lot of lesser known bangers on it that I’ve played out over [cont.]
So, whether you guys are open to house music or not is beyond me, but if you like what I did with the Blockhead “The Robin Byrd Mixtape”, I think you will dig this as well. Lots of late night, soulful house here – not the mainstream, big room Swedish/Dutch stuff (nothing wrong with that [cont.]
