Tonight, I’m utterly thrilled to bring you a No Diggity remix. Anyone who had ears in the 90’s remembers Blackstreet. 2:19 is one of the most delightful teases I’ve heard in months. This remix, picked up by EDMTunes, is a huge one, that not only throws back Blackstreet in a deep & respectful way, but it also does what music has stopped doing. It teases the listener. The simple extension & manipulation of the break is something you have to fight to hear in NYC these days. Absolutely wonderful remix, that harkens back to the late 90’s both in hip hop & house at the same time. Expect to hear this in some of the deeper, smoother & sexier house/tech house parties here in the city. At least, if DJs know what they’re sitting on here. This NYC local producer has done some great work here, so show some love.
My boy Just Dan out of Illadelphia has put out a fun little mix for the summer sunset that you’re going to love. There’s a slow build from 110bpm to ~180, pulsing through genres and mixing effortlessly. There are a couple of transitions that are just stunningly good, exactly the technical skill I’ve grown to expect from Just Dan. The Prodigy, the bass, fidget and a bunch of breaky ridiculousness make for a wild ride that you will love. Great weekend jam, or perfect to pre-game your Saturday night shenanigans if you’ve not left for Burning Man.
Tonight, I’m super proud to signal boost a pretty damn good offering from a sick rising DJ in Philly. This random Cowboy Bebop bootleg is a great freshman offering from the producer. The transition into synthy goodness at two minutes can only be described as tantalizing. I can’t wait to see where he goes with this stuff this year, and if you want more JustDan goodness, check the mix below. The blend of fidget, soul, R&B, jazzy hip hoppy goodness, house and a dash of disco should satisfy. Watch out for the Hey Arnold sample 🙂
