Our friend and sometimes mentor Roctakon put together this really fun mix of classic House records for Opening Ceremony, who asked him to put something together to celebrate Party Girl Parker Posey’s bday. Here’s Roc’s description of the mix:

When I was a kid, Party Girl was one of my favorite movies. If you were 16 in 1995, an aspiring DJ, and not-so-closet total dork, Mary would have been everything to you too. I picked songs I know she would have danced to, songs that I really did dance to, and songs that for me define that era. This mix is a tribute to her and to my late teens, where I spent a lot more time as patron than DJ, a lot more time dancing to house music, and a lot more time romanticizing Parker Posey.

A project I did of remixes of Minneapolis rappers music. i.e. Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Carnage. It’s all sample based, and the quality on some of them isn’t the greatest. People have really enjoyed it that copped it back in the day. It also has all the instrumentals.

Hope y’all enjoy it.

Heavy Warmup Vol 3 @DJAnonymous

DJ Anonymous: Heavy Warmup Vol 3 Classic Dancehall Mix by DJ Anonymous

Our friend, mentor, and old-head DJ Ayres started a great mix series over on his website called “Heavy Warmup” where, in his own words “I’m sharing my favorite DJs’ warmup sets, showing you how the pros get a crowd moving without burning through all the big records before midnight.” Really dope series. If you’re a DJ, you know how frustrating it is when some new jack DJ thinks that playing all the hits at 10:47 PM is how you get a party crackin’. NAGL, YOUNG BOL! Anyway, Ayres did a mix, DJ Eleven did one, and now DJ Anonymous from the Top Billin crew did one. Great stuff and please let this be a lesson to all y’all aspiring DJ dudes: there’s literally THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of songs you could be playing in your opening set to get the party popping.

If you’re not following DJ Anonymous on soundcloud you needs to be and here’s what DJ Anonymous himself says about the mix:

“As much as I’ve been into disco and house recently, I still love to play a lot of different things. Classic dancehall and early digital stuff especially has been close to my heart always, when Ayres asked me to take part in the Heavy Warmup series it was just the right excuse to finally put together a mix. No matter what you’re going to play later on Cocoa Tea should get the party started right. Enjoy!” – Anonymous

The A To Z of Dennis Coffey

Constellations – The A to Z of Dennis Coffey: A Mix By House Shoes by Strut

I found this via Passion of the Weiss. Dope mix with some classic tracks!

Leading up to the foundational Motor City guitarist’s new self-titled solo album, Detroit’s own House Shoes takes us on a journey through Dennis Coffey’s history of funk. Including the psychedelic b-boy soul of Coffey’s 70’s solo material, classic recordings on which he recorded as a sessions musician, hip-hop cuts which have sampled his material, and even a couple of sneak peaks at the new album’s music, Constellations is 45 minutes of straight heat, mixed by a master DJ intimately acquainted with Coffey’s legacy, and his future.

RIP Nate Dogg & @Steve1der Mix

Drawing by Dino Henderson


Sad day. As my man THE SHOW aka The Class Prez said on twitter:

RIP Nate Dogg!! There would be no T-Pain, Akon, or whoever else making a living off just singing hooks without his trail blazing talent!!

The really remarkable thing about Nate Dogg to me was not only how vital he sounded on every single song he was in, but how universally accepted he was. I was surrounded by a lot of true school boom bap nerdery growing up and we all had pretty vocal and varying opinions on rap music. There were a few things however that we all agreed on and somehow or other, the fact that Nate Dogg was amazing was one of these things. His vocals have also aged really well. They don’t sound dated to me… they sound timeless. If you just take a quick glance at hip-hop, it might be easy to accuse Nate Dogg of being a cursory footnote, but anybody who knows anything about rap music knows just how important this dude is, was, and hopefully always will be. RIP Nate Dogg.

Enjoy Steve1der’s best of Nate Dogg mix above. It’s a truly great mix done with a great deal of respect for the man.
