Welcome to my new weekly video mix series, #ONEMINUTEMIX! In which I execute a very dope ILL mix live from the palatial glory of Don Studios in historical Downtown Los Angeles every Friday.

I’m posting them on Twitter, Insta, Facebook and Youtube (well, I’m still attempting the latter, keep getting takedown notices, tres frustrating).


OG Maco – 2000s
Crooklyn Clan -Let’s Get Ill
The Smiths – Still Ill
Lil Wayne – A Milli

For those that have asked I’m using a Pioneer DJM800 Mixer, a Native Instruments X1 and F1 and a DJ Tech Tools Midi Fighter Twister.

Crazy season is upon us – from my 11th story view up here in Don Studios LA I can see kids going at each other with super soakers while a merry mix of hipsters, models, over-tanned vagrants, seamstresses and construction workers look on beatifically. Hercules is jumping up and down in a water fountain via facetime in a window to the top left of my voluminous SCREEN, while I’m prepping for three nights of consecutive shows and approving the masters for my upcoming PROJECT – the first fruits of my time in this incredible studio I’ve been building since February.

MEANWHILE! Its time for a new mix. AKIRALIVE020 is here and it is typically brilliant and mental. 40-odd nukes masterfully mixed and blended live over the course of an hour or so, recorded right here in Don Studios and broadcasted live on Periscope last night. Check that here now, and keep it locked for an all new DONCAST SEASON broadcast live from DON STUDIOS LA soon!

Aight, back to work. If you’re in LA you can catch me at Blind Dragon tonight (Thursday), Bootsy Bellows tomorrow night (Friday), and AT THE RACES at Santa Anita Park with Mark Ronson on Saturday.

Second collaboration with mr Witch, this one was co produced by Devin Lucien who is a super safe DJing homie out here in Calitown.

Here’s a video of me doing the rap in my DJ booth here in Don Studios LA.

Ayo so these weird evil fuckers Mr Witch asked me to rap on a song for them so I did then they kidnapped me and dragged my ass around a sequence of ludicrous mansions in the Hollywood Hills with this evil bunny dude and it went a lil something like this.

“This”, by the way, is but part one of an increasingly frenzied sequence of wavy events that will be unrolling over the next few.

AKIRA THE DON - akiralive019


No time for even an intro today, Don is working his fingers to the literal bone (and bleeding on the keyboard as he types) on the final bits of Don Studios DTLA. Suffice to say, this just ver an hour of amazing music, as ever, live blends, remixes, and ULTRA NUKES, your very own private Don Party – or public, if you so wish to share it with your homies. Which you should. Obviously.

If you were online yesterday afternoon, you might have actually caught me recording it, as I switched Periscope on for the duration. What’s gonna be a regular thing, keep an eye on the channels for details of when It’s Going Down…

In other news, I’m DJing Blind Dragon THIS FRIDAY, not Saturday, as has been the way for the past year… So if Saturday has become your regular LA turnup, be warned if you wanna catch that Don magic you need to get out a day early…

Finally, go check out the LITF shop for a gang of dope new DON MERCH and LITF GEAR.

Enjoy this mix!
