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.

Splash!

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.

I saw Ranking Roger on Saturday at Croissant Neuf after we played. Dude was BRILLIOR. Played loads of awesome tunes off of an Ipad and performed a bunch of his own tings, including an Andrew WK-solo-show-esque version of this.

TechCrunch reports:

If you’ve been to San Francisco in the past few months, you’ll know that the entire city is plastered with iPad advertisements. The situation is even more out of control now that it’s WWDC week and thousands of Apple developers are in from out of town. So one rogue group of artists decided to have a little fun.

The group Freedom From Porn has been going all around the city and altering the iPad ads to add a little porn to them. To be clear, these aren’t really explicit additions, instead, they’re more subversive. For example, see the Steve Jobs’ Facebook page below.

The group, which has this blog, is apparently doing this because they think Jobs’ take that the App Store should befree of porn is crap.

Anyone out there on the streets still seeing these or has Apple managed to take them all down?

Be sure to check out the video below.

Props to TheAlScott.
