OH HAI BABY!

So I’ve been doing that thing again, that thing where  have all this shit I wanna blog about, but I’m working my ass off and don’t have the requisite hour-plus to get it down properly, so more and more stuff happens and the hypothetical blog post gets bigger and bigger in my brain and thus harder and harder to find time to execute… then you realise its weeks since your last one and you need to just get something down before your website turns into that Ghost Town The Specials were sining about. So yeah. Basically its been DJing hella lots, opening a club, writing songs, having adventures, missing my family, making money,  and this past few days swagging out in a very opulent and luxurious studio with an excellent engineer called James. Here’s some photos by the mighty Ian Splashmore, AKA Passmorepics, taken during that marathon two day recording session at Red Bull Studios LA, the results of which you’ll be hearing soon enough. THE SUMMER FO SPLASH is coming!

Aight, I’m a get back to editing this video and prepping for this weekend’s DJ sets. I’m gonna be at Spare Rooms at The Roosevelt on Friday, and the brand new ultra wavy nitespot my MIDNITEMEN partner Wade “Dick Millions” Crescent just opened, BLIND DRAGON on Saturday (check the link, I designed the menus! Ha!). SPLASH!

Paul Wall and his wife flip my Nan’s favourite song into a heartbreaking lament to Paul’s syrup addiction. Could easily have been a train wreck, came out a beautiful record, high fives all round. Shout out Beanz & Cornbread on the beat.

Chilly breaks down the mercurial wonder of iLoveMakonnen’s Club Going Up On Tuesday.

Meanwhile, here’s our remix, from way back in the Summer of 2014 before Drake jumped on it and Grammys beckoned.

The problem with being a dude engaged in a magnificent follical endeavour in the FACE AREA is literally the day after it reaches ULTIMATE PERFECTION it sort of goes to shit, so I cut it, and inevitably cut it too much and ruin it then I have to wait two or three weeks for it to reach ULTIMATE PERFECTION and then the cycle continues FOREVER and EVER and this is THE STRUGGLE OF MAN.

OK Justified is fucking great right, but the issue with Justified, which returned this week, is Raylan Givens is a massive dick, and Boyd Crowder is an erudite bad motherfucker of biblical proportions. I really want Boyd Crowder to win, but there is no way Boyd will win cos Raylan is basically modern day cowboy James Bond and will have multiple series and movies in the future set in Miami and stuff like that so maybe I just shouldn’t watch it cos it’ll only make me sad. :RIP BOYD IN ADVANCE YOU BIBLICAL BAD MOTHERFUCKER. frown emoticon
