DOA: 04.2012 (mixed by Disc Jockey Nappy)

No Comments »

Looks like Nappy's outdone himself. I love these mixes - Nappy's into so many different styles, it's fun to hear what he picks up from genres that he's not constantly listening to. For the April edition of the DOA 2012 mix series, Nappy selected new and unreleased bits from Noisia & Phace, Vicious Circle & Need For Mirrors, Crissy Criss, DC Breaks, Prolix, Gridlok, Jubei, Aesthetics and plenty more. Great selection, going from the more chilled/deep side into some tech into some lovely bits. Just great all-around, and a nice selection of the shit that's really moving the scene.

St. Joe Louis "CCSDT"

No Comments »

I was just gushing over this cut, which is my Spring/Summer 2012 guilty obsession. SJL recently finished up a remix and video for "Forgot to Forget" (which is the next single off the My Favorite Demons EP) that's set to drop next week. They added some fly bits to the "Same Damn Time" instrumental and just murder it. No rapping about wearing Gucci and cooking dope, just some sick shit from the Cloud Club.

N.O.R.E. "Let Me Show You (Pussy Works)"

No Comments »


All about this, since I saw the video over the weekend. Scram did the damn thing on the beat, and Noreaga knew just how to attack it. I could give a fuck if Brian McKnight drops the mixtape or not, I'm glad that debacle produced this track. Shouts to Mr. X.

I was waiting for this one to go down. I missed Saturday's Garden Variety show, and of course it was the one that featured Feed's video shoot, Tone Liv as the hypeman AND some static/conflict that included threats being thrown?! Wow. Shouts to Divine and Phil for doing what they do - they drop some SERIOUS '90s flavor throughout the show. Don't miss this one!

Sir Watson "HighLife"

No Comments »

Not sure who Sir Watson is, although in doing a bit of Internets research, I found he reps Maryland. He's got a tape, American Dream, due out in July, and if it sounds like this, I'm all about it. Forreal though. +2 if you can spot the sample in this. Pour something up to this.

Mazzi & S.O.U.L. Purpose ft. Chordz Cordero "Priceless"

No Comments »

Been a minute since I've heard some new ish from Mazzi, and with his forthcoming Digital Diggin EP, I think I'm gonna be happy with the next chapter. He's flippin' lyrics over some of his favorite beats and obscure loops, and real dusty finger generals know the track used on this one. Shouts to Mazzi for bringing Chordz Cordero over this one. Beautiful track here.

Disc Jockey Nappy x Juke Ellington - The Fate of Footwork

No Comments »

Footwork is a genre I've fucked with for a bit. It rolls around 160 BPM, has a grip of kicks thrown in and in that tempo, you can flip all kinds of shit. Nappy kicks off his fourth mixtape of the month of April with this one with Juke Ellington, mixing both Juke's cuts along with tracks Juke handpicked. Dope look into this scene (which some of you may know as juke, btw). Fucks with this, and grab the rest of Nappy's tapes from ClubTapes, trust. And if you're good (and I'm lucky) another project in this vein should be dropping in the future...

The boy JSWISS is dropping Out of State Intuition 2: Leave Me A Loan on Monday (with sponsors Thrill City and PrimeTime Media & Entertainment), and he has a dope cut to get your weekend started with. He produced this, flipping the SWAT theme. Like how he cooked this up, and he spits atop and in between this one. Fucks with this and look out for that.

Wasn't expecting this video. Figured they'd have more of the shots switching with the beat. It's more "don" and less gutter feel. Just saying. Still fucks with this track.

Another cut from them NJ Street Klan niggas, with Al-Kayduh & Krash Battle going ham and eggs over that "Cash'n Out" track. You can't deny that one, and hearing Al and Krash coast over this? Makes me wanna go grab a Solo cup and pour something in it. Definitely not that "be at work" type of flex, unless you work in a club full of strippers. Well, that or a casino. #cashnout

The Combat Jack Show (still featuring Dallas Penn) is in a state of flux. Nothing bad, but with Just Blaze joining the fold, and the high power guests, and are trying to make sure they get right. This week they featured a guy who was one of my favorite DJs before I graduated high school, A-Trak, who's now a darling of Internets and hipsters alike. Another top-notch show, but you already know!

Hollywood Floss "Lights Out"

No Comments »

And out of nowhere, Floss reemerges with a new one, like he just stepped back onto the red carpet. Linking up with the one like Chris Rockaway, this truly plays like some theme music/re-entry into the scene for no real reason. Homey has his bars in tact on here as well, you might have to reload this one to catch all of the lines he has on here. No word on what homey has dropping next, but it sounds like he's looking past your level, onward and upward.

Dude's really showing me something. Philly Polo heads, stand up. Need more MCs like this, willing to rock over shit that heads aren't really checking for. Word is he has a few jawns on deck, Camouflage & Acidwash and Neon Kusch. Wait for those, trust!

Disc Jockey Nappy - Thugstep Commission 3

No Comments »

Once again... it's on. Nappy continues with his Thugstep Commission series, with what I feel is the most fully realized mix yet. Not only do you get the huge remixes of Rap cuts from Waka Flocka, Drumma Boy, Big Sean, A$AP Rocky and others from Nappy, Santi Junior, SoundBoy Pussy, Vaski and more, but we get some monstrous cuts from Monstar, Hizzleguy, Aleon Craft, Proper Villains, among others. We ever get two cuts featuring original production, including Elucid's "You Ain't Even Know", which is dropping on Street Bass Anthems 5, and legit broke Nappy's windows. I don't know what your vice is, but it's 4/20, so I imagine you're chiefing something. Pack that bowl / bong / pipe up, light your dutch, and sip that brew. This is one to get rowdy to. Shouts to @_def for the artwork and @ClubTapes for the hosting!

You saw the video for this earlier this week, and I figured I'd drop the track today, as the Soul of the Message event goes down TONIGHT at the 219 Gallery in Trenton.

He flips Jay Electronica's "Dear Moleskine" instrumental into a nice theme for this event. Dude's wise beyond his years - enjoy this one.
