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.

NEW SHIT! Have at ye some ultra emotional turbo base heartbreak splash from me and my brother Narstie Narst, with whom I have been making records for TEN YEARS now, and we ain’t about to stop anytime soon.

Narst and I actually spent a bunch of time in the studio in London just before I moved out to LA, and we have like three albums worth of amazing timeless material on deck, so you’re gonna be getting more of this wavy sonic glory.

Cop Narst’s new single HELLO HI on iTunes etc now, and cop my new Blind Dragon mixtape here.

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.

SPLASH!
