So, when I was a younger buck, Vice and I discovered an amazing mix tape. This was after we worshiped DJ Rectangle for his quick, ridiculously clean mix tapes. It was an 80’s mix laced up by DJ Spinbad and it seemed like he was able to take what was in our head and execute it perfectly onto a mix tape. Of course it was way beyond what we were capable of doing at the time, but we loved the style so much...
From the lab of another SKAM Artist comes a brand new release from one of my crew: DJ Skratchy. There is a reason he is called “Skratchy,” but there’s not much of it on this mix. He does throw down a couple of times just to make sure you know he doesn’t mess around, but this mix is primarily a “Live from Lavo” feel. The kind of CD that you can throw a party and just throw this in you ipod and have “Skratchy in a Box.” He definitely doesn’t disappoint as he brings the Vegas vibe to your ear buds. Definitely a must listen.
Artist: DJ Skratchy
CD Title: Live From Lavo
Ab-Loon is a funny guy. He has a quirky sense of humor, but is more of a shy, young cat with a love for music. A self proclaimed perfectionist, he started on the journey to composing this CD 2 years ago. I am sure this is a huge relief to get out his cd; I definitely know how he feels.
He likes to play an eclectic assortment of musical jems. Anything from Sade to Michael Jackson to Mobb Deep. Strangely enough, the remixes he chooses makes the blends seemless. You can catch him regularly spinning at Store XIII in West Covina and on Dj Buddy TV. Props to the homey from West Covina...
It looks like Cheapshot has been busy in the lab. Today he released his next CD for us all to enjoy. This is his first CD release since signing with the dopest management agency in the WORLD!!! (Congrat’s Cheap and a shout out to the SKAM family). I always love his mixing style and music selection. This is for those crate diggers and music lovers. If you want to hear American Boy or You’re A Jerk, you’re looking at the wrong mix… Cheapshot is so 3008…
Artist: DJ Cheapshot
CD Title: Club Footed
Style: All mixed up...
I have gotten a few mix cds recently and thought I would share them with you. Along with one of the best websites out there for mixes:
First, of course, I have to give it to Vice. One of the most versitile djs in the industry. From top 40 to rock to new jack, Vice always brings his creativity to his CDs. He just released his new CD a few weeks ago and it is definately #1 in my 6 disc changer. Info:
Artist: DJ Vice
CD Title: Late Nights. Early Flights. VIP. Drink For Free
Style: All mixed up. But that’s why we love him right? Electro, house, new jack, top 40
So, Enrie used to be everywhere back in the day. I don’t think I’ve seen him since a random sighting in the Glendale Galleria a few years ago (he was still sporting the gold vinyl chain). The reason I probably don’t see him anymore is most likely, like most world famous djs, he has been out of the “LA” scene and more in the “World” scene. Traveling hither and there living the rockstar life, but then out of nowhere, he brings us one of the dopest mix cd sites known to man.
I had this concept sitting in my head for a while and leave it to the Enrie to bring it better than I would’ve and ...
DJ Cheapshot has released a new mixtape entitled Jazzercidal Tendencies sponsored by the fashionable peeps True Love False Idols. The new mix includes all the signature DJ Cheapshot wordplay, along with the very best of dance-floor mash. Cheap went into another direction with this particular tape, sticking mostly with rocking electro beats over Megadudical-like remixes. He also attempts to throw in a bit of 60s classics and succeeds tremendously. This mix is hard to find and available for a limited time so make sure you cop one by myspacing his ass at myspace.com/djcheapshot.
