So this one actually came to me in a dream. I dreamed it existed, then I woke up, and with the power of my BRAND NEW BIN, executed that shit.


Enjoy. Free download here.
MEANWHILE! Massive shout out to my favourite record pool, DJ City who just posted our Lana Del Rey remix so that all my fellow DJs all over the world can download that shit and play it. SPLASH!

OMFG man like Mozzer chopping it up with Lizard King Larry in his first “in person interview in ten years”. It is typically entertaining, and, amazingly to me, it was conducted at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood, where I DJ every Tuesday night. Splash!

New shit! Splash!

Did this on Saturday afternoon, to play at my Blind Dragon residency… I meant to do a simple edit just to toughen it up and bring it up to the sonic level of contemporary shit, so I could play it at peaktime during The Bangers without a noticeable drop in energy… but then ended up going a bit deeper and doing a full remix. Then we went and saw Straight Outta Compton on Sunday at the Hollywood Arklight (should have gone to Compton really but never mind) and shit was completely mind blowing. I still felt weird in my stomach four hours later. I didn’t think they made movies like that anymore. That was like some seventies level shit. Very, very special. So inspirational. Those that have followed me from dot probably know how influential N.W.A., and especially Ice Cube were on me. Death Certificate was my favourite album in the world when I was 12, growing up in North Wales. I could rap that shit backwards. As I explained on me and Narstie’s Hate Sosa, the song opened me up to a whole world that i would never have know existed if it had been left up to education and the media. 20 years later I’m living in L.A., and N.W.A. are still inspiring me.

Rap music for ever.
