Que – “OG Bobby Johnson” (Skinny Friedman remix)

Do Androids Dance premiered my (kind of late but still awesome) remix of Que’s slapper “OG Bobby Johnson”!

If you didn’t already know, his Trap Raveseries essentially started the trend of midtempo flips of rap tunes.  Some of these from the series still get a steady rinse from me on DJ nights because of how well they work in the club.  This flip of “OG Bobby Johnson” is no different with it’s trap/twerk/bounce blends of sound that’s built on the hook that will be sure to get chants from the folks going nuts on the dancefloor.

Run get that!

DJ BATTLE IN BROOKLYN TONIGHT (2/17)

I’m facing off with DJ Rafik, DJ Bruce and DJ Gritz tonight. I will probably play a bunch of ignorant rap music that people like. It’s $2 to get in and you get a free shot. 308 Hooper in Brooklyn (J/M to Marcy).

Scottie B – “Niggaz Fightin (Skinny Friedman remix)”


This week, T&A Records released The Unruly Remixes, an EP full of remixes of Baltimore club classics remixed by the likes of DJ Sliink, Nadastrom, Tittsworth and others. I’m thrilled they included my remix of Scottie B’s “Niggaz Fightin”. The original was a staple of me and Apt One’s Philadelphyinz parties at The Khyber and Medusa, alongside other Unruly classics like DJ Class “Tear The Club Up”, Debonair Samir “Samir’s Theme”, Scottie B’s “African Chant” among many others. It’s an honor to be a part of this project.

I joined Scottie on DJ Ayres’s Small Talk podcast yesterday as well. Our lil chat about the roots of club music, the evolving role of the DJ, football, the specifics of urban decline and Jewish assimilation will be out soon. Nerd shit son!

Anyways The Unruly Remixes are out now. Download some of them for free or be a sport and cop on iTunes.

EXTRA PILLS: A Danny Brown Guest Verse and Remix Mix


 

On the occasion of Danny Brown’s Old coming out next week, I threw together this ~35 min mix of some of his guest verses and some remixes.

It was originally a lot longer but I decided to ditch his pre-2011 rappity-rap stuff … it didn’t feel like it vibed with now-classic shit like “Blueberry” and “Terrorist Threats”. Hope you like!
