YA’LL WANNA KNOW SOMETHING?
when i’m mixing and blending records, I FEEL LIKE I’M FUKCING RAPPING on those records.
but i’ll come back to that point.
HIP-HOP-WISE, DJ’ING has always been the most COST-PROHIBITIVE element of HIP-HOP.
all past and present b-boys know that.
but now, since the tech-revolution has brought music production gear & equipment down to an affordable level, i’ve recently dove in.
and the FEELING i get from this shit is UN-BE-FUKCING-LIEVABLE.
blending records is WAY different from making beats…different SPIRITS, man – STRAIGHT UP. same thing with the other elements of HIP-HOP.
FUKC MAN – what i’m trying to say is EACH ELEMENT HAS IT’S OWN SPIRIT – IT’S OWN ENERGY – it’s own ESSENCE.
i’m just touching base with mixing and blending, and i’m developing my own STYLE of dj’ing (SCRATCHING REPLACED with EFFECTS and UNHEARD-OF-BEFORE song combinations).
anyways, when i’m blending these joints (which i’m slowly but surely getting better at) it’s a HIGH.
one more thing.
i’ve ALWAYS been the type of person that makes music for ME – FIRST.
so these mixes i’m posting are BASICALLY made for ME – when i’m RIDING, when i’m CHILLING, when i’m FEELING MYSELF – no POLITICS or BUSINESS involved – WHATSOEVER.
if other’s find joy and happiness in my mixes, AWESOME.
AND ONE LAST THING –
these mixes offer me BALANCE.
NORMALLY my music is DARK, SCI-FI, DISTORTED, and totally fukcing RANDOM…but with these mixes, i’m able to TONE IT THE FUKC DOWN and show my other side – which is a pretty cool & relaxed person – with an edge.
make music for YOU, the UNIVERSE – THEN fans – yes, in THAT fukcing order.
