So I saw man like Craig David and my buddy Narstie doing this live on 1Xtra and knew there needed to be a studio version. Smashed it out in a few hours, took it down to Blind Dragon in West Hollywood to play out and the place went NUTS… so much so I had to reload it twice.
FREE DOWNLOAD HERE! Meanwhile… That Rae Sremmurd remix we dropped last month just crossed 140,000 on Soundcloud, which is very crazy. That’s officially the most streams I’ve had on a single remix in 10 years. Baffled as to why this one popped off so hard, but thankful. THANKS INTERNETS GODS!
Its been a barmy couple of week’s here in La La Land. It was the VMAs the other Sunday, and me and Wadeyo played the official Hwood VMA’s afterparty at Henry’s. It was out first headline slot in that place, and it was a cotdurned ZOO all night. Young legend Justin Bieber’s official DJ Tay James opened up, and the former’s business partner and former road manager Kenny Hamilton was hosting, so I should have guessed when Kenny asked me to play Bieber’s just-released new joint What Do U Mean there might be a grander reason than just wanting to hear it… Still I was as surprised as everyone else when I dropped the thing and the young legend himself jumped up on my DJ booth and performed the song as the already-zoo turned into some kind of post-zoo inferno. E! wrote about it here, and you can see some footage here too, replete with bouncing up and down Don triggering explosionds and “AKIRA!” SFX in the manner of a warrior.
I’m playing Supper Club this Friday, which is exciting. Working my way through LA’s biggest and splashiest joints. Got till December to truly level up. My babies are back then. BACK FOR GOOD. Daddy’s gonna provide. What an emotional, crazed year this has been. This time last year I was applying for my visa and running on my beach in Wales and working on my DJ library. Now I’m playing in LA’s hottest clubs every week and DJing for Justin Bieber. All that’s missing is my family. And they’ll be here soon.
THEN WE REALLY GO IN.
