JAR-WARS-THE-BINKS-AWAKENS-DARTH-DARTH-BINKS-SITH-LORD-POSTER-900

Still full blown obsessed with this Jar Jar Binks As Evil Sith Lord theory so I made this beautiful image and turned it into a T-Shirt which I just ordered and am Christmas-three-year-old level excited to receive in the mail. You can cop one too if you like cos I am nice. HEIL JAR JAR!

Meanwhile, shout out UK superstars LITTLE MIX who were going nuts in front of my DJ booth at Bootsys ALL NIGHT on Tuesday. They particularly enjoyed my Craig David/Bieber edit. Splash splash splash.

A week on from the already legendary Blind Dragon Party Mixtape, your pal DON, AKA SPLASH GOD, AKA THE LAST WAVELORD is BACK with a BRAND NEW MIX of BRAND NEW JAMS, BRAND NEW LIVE REMIXES and BRAND NEW TAKES on CLASSIC MATERIALZ, all mixed LIVE right here in the Studio of Dreams on Hollywood Boulevard.

We also have some EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL for you… alongside rand new cuts from ME, including my all new rap song Year One and my official Sauce Twinz remix, we also have a brand new as yet unreleased Big Narstie joint produced by me, and a brand new unreleased PABLO DYLAN joint produced by his top secret kabal of wizards up on Mullholand Drive. The song is called – duh – Mullholand Drive, and I have been very much enjoying sneaking into my DJ sets recently and watching the unsuspecting faces go THIZZ.

Track listing below. Meanwhile, shout out the homie David Arquette for shouting me out in the Chicago Sun Times interview he did about his role as Sherlock in the stage play (ON TOUR NOW! VERY WAVY!) this week.

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY I MOVED TO LOS ANGELES.

I finished Skyping my babies around midnight last night, and made this song.

LOVE TO YOU ALL.

SPLASH!

ATD, Hollywood Boulevard, 2015

LYRICS:

hip hip hooray
one year to the day
since i packed my bags and moved to la
i looked to the stars and ask for a sign
now i look out the window and see the hollywood sign
and i walk on stars when i step outside
down the boulevard through neon lights
there’s spider-man, there’s sponge bob, theres superman
cracked out staggering outside the gift shop
head rings loud with the tick tock
time is my enemy
i gotta level up so hard
for my family still waiting to follow
this time last year I was running on the beach each night
pushing my son up the hills each morning
got in the best shape of my life
practicing my performing

cos i been pushing so so hard
and i been grinding so so long
all i want is to be my best
and to sing my songs and the world sing along
now california’s calling
hand outreached she asked me to dance
and I take it
cos this could be my last chance

ran with the jellyfish one last time
kissed goodbye to the sunrise
crossed a ocean
hit that strip like meteor
ATD Conquistodor
kick in the door waving the four four
took to the life like i been here before
ooh baby i like it raw

mixed opportunity with preparation
plus perspiration
worked it out didnt need no presentation
a little patience
just a while longer we’ll be celebrating
i spoke to my nan on the phone her birthday
she said guess I’ll never see you again
I’m like no way
I coming back on a horse for you all

i been been missing my dad
i been mission my mum
i been missing my girl i been missing my son
i was with him each day first half of his life
only with him two months last year of his lif
but i see him on skype
and I see says I miss you daddy
i say i miss you buddy
I missed so much
making our dreams come true
did it for your mum
did it for you
so you could be proud of your old man
and know that you could be whatever you want
fortune favours the brave
now I drop nukes in the rave
do not behave
smash every stage i invade
every song a grenade
AK Donovan
AKA
the best DJ in all of LA

AKIRALIVE10 - The Blind Dragon Party Mixtape Vol. 1

SUBSCRIBE:

Stitcher:

All year, since the day it opened back in February, I’ve been DJing every Saturday night at the Blind Dragon, LA’s waviest new nitespot, a sexy leopard carpeted speakeasy style nightclub slash karaoke bar in West Hollywood. It has been a joy and a privilege to soundtrack the nights of the lucky few hundred who cram into that gorgeous Lynchian haven, hidden from plan sight, entered via carpark, each and every Saturday night.

As a DJ, it is one’s job to create the soundtrack for the environment and the people, to score their movie… and each place, and each crowd, is unique. The way I play in Blind Dragon can be very different to the way I play in other places, because it demands it… there’s something special and singular in that leopard carpet, and that golden wallpaper, and its made me do all manner of things I might not have otherwise.

This mix, executed live here in Hollywood, is a little taste of some of the things I’ve been doing in my favourite Golden Booth this year. Pretty much everything that happens, every transition, blend, or live remix, was worked out in that booth on the spot in front of joyful humans, fuelled by Moscow Mules and the energy of the room, from the barstaff to the bouncers to the bottle girls to the gleeful gangs of revellers who bring that room alive every night its open. Much here couldn’t have occurred without it – for example, the only reason I sussed out that ill-ass Dee-Lite/Nicki Minaj blend is because someone was having a birthday and their buddy asked if I could play Nicki Minaj while I was playing Groove is In The Heart. Escalating 30Bm from Pony to Everywhere via the majesty of a Pixies remix and a Makonnen hook only happened because someone I saw someone spend a gang of money and the bottle girls emerged ablaze with sparklers, and it felt appropriate, nay necessary, in that moment. And I remembered it, because it was a moment, and moments are what its all about.

Andrew W.K has that song, You Will Remember Tonight:

Today Will Be Over And Done With A Sunrise
But The Way That You Feel Will Be Frozen Forever In Time
You’ll Forget Yesterday
You’ll Forget All The Fears In Your Old Life
You Will Remember Tonight

That’s what I’ve ben trying to create at Blind Dragon. If you’ve been there, you’ll know. If not, enjoy a little taste of the magic via the wonder of this mix.

SPLASH!
