Holiday party season was an awesome blur... This party was by far the craziest... 3 hours of open bar...Corpies get it in. I was a little scared for the safety of my gear... but still the christmas spirt was there in full force, and it was enhanced by all the other spirits that were flowing heavily. Funniest thing about this event was the Dance floor and how people were just eating it all night on the slippery dance floor all night...kinda scary, kinda hilarious... All in all amazing energy, Good times, and a truly unique to Georgetown mix of music that had them rocking all night. Enjoy some Vids taken on my Ipod Nano.
Here is a pic from the night
a hillarious VID
notice the dude @ 1:08 who falls over someone. LOL
Had the pleasure of working the Sig Ep winter formal again this year, 3rd year in a row, last Thursday 12.9.10 at the Josephine Butler house on Meridian Hill in DC... Awesome venue, Good Times, Great Music & Sweet Bros Partying with their dates in the Holiday spirit... This party was awesome because i could play some of the Delicious House & Dance music I love and dont get to normally play when Im doing holiday parties like this. It was dope!
Sweet 16's can be good and bad. that show super sweet 16 on MTV gives these parties a bad wrap, trust me, they are not all like that. This one was awesome, Family coming together, pot luck dinner (amazing food that they were generous enough to share with me) well behaved teenagers, a really cool photo booth, A great photographer taking solid shots of yours truly and of course some great music... Very appreciative of Karissa and her family for having me work this event. Special thanks for these great pictures below and a Shout out to Penny Lee(pictured below) a second mother to me growing up, and Kevin's mom (pictured below)
Grab all the music I played... Split into 4 folders below
Mash-ups...a genre I used to really ignore, but have come to truly embrace over the past year because i feel they are most indicative of my personal tastes in music. A cornucopia of Greatness... Like a thanksgiving plate with all the food all mixed together or The new jimmy dean Pancakes and Sausage on a stick... Two great things that you love at the same time. ive used the analogy before... But its like the music equivalent of an interracial baby. the Halle berry of MP3's, the reason Why black men Love brazil. Just dope.
These dudes, White panda have made some of my favorite mash-ups out there. this is there most recent re work of the Current strip club anthem "No hands" by Roscoe dash feat Waka Flocka & Wale + Stereo Love by Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina
I dont care if it is big luther or Lil luther. Anything that samples Mr. Vandross is fire. Esp this burns & Fred Falke Re-work of " You Stopped Loving Me" also an interesting concept for a video to feature the cute doggies instead of half naked chicks. Well Done gentlemen, Well done.
Been gone for a while...I apologize,
It is Holiday party season tho, last week I had 5 events in 3 days! week before I was in New Orleans takin some time off. here are some pics from the past few weeks-
Dope Club in New orleans Called "The Hookah" heard some great Hip Hop & New Orleans Bounce music when I was down there last weekend. Interesting to be in a hookah bar that plays hard, Hood hip hop all night. good times- More info on Hookah click here Pictures from Karissa's Sweet 16 12.4.10 Taken by Penny Lee, Thanks Mrs. LEE! Check out Penny on Linkedin- Photo Credit- PENNY LEE Corp Holiday Gala 2010, National Press club 12.3.10
Ill Be posting the playlists from these events later this week, stay Tuned in.
IN the mean time- here is a folder of what im listening to in my car. Take a ride with me....Tis the season & I am very weird so there is a little bit of funky christmas music, lil house, lil hip hop & lil dubstep. Check it out.
I'm In Alabama for the week at my dad's house and I'm discovering a network called Centric apparently this is BET's atonement for selling out to Viacom and Becoming "Black EVIL Television" setting black people back to slave times.... A rant for another blog. I like centric, in the past couple hours I've seen a few episodes of In Living Color & some classic episodes of Soul Train. Both amazing shows that were poignant expressions of AfricanAmerican popular culture & music for their respective times. Here are some YouTube videos to show anyone that is not familiar with the shows.
IN LIVING COLOR- Shawn Wayans, from wayans brother TV show and all the "Scary Movie" Movies was the DJ on this show because his older brother, Keenan Ivory Wayans( My Dad's classmate at Tuskeegee) was the Executive producer of the show. this is also where J-Lo Got her start as one of the "Fly Girls" a group of cuties that danced to new jack swing and early 90s' hip-hop throughout the show and in special segments at the beginning of every episode. don't forget...Jim Carey also got his start on here...
here are some Soul Train videos... Its funny that our parents make fun of us for Soulja boy, StankyLegg, Flexx, Walkin it out & most recently Teaching each other how to Dougie... but they danced like this... I love old school soul train videos..
LMAO at the outfits and the Facial expressions while dancing... LOVE IT!
who knew that Rosie Perez got her start on Soul Train? Gettin it down the soul train line!
I need to make a soul train & in living color inspired mix. well see if i can fit it in next month.
Thanks for reading. Happy Turkey day. I am very Thankful for your ear and attention. GOBBLE GOBBLE! Warmest Regards, - Dj Beach
I really liked walker texas ranger as a kid, My grandad and I used to watch it religiously and marvel at the badassness of Chuck Norris. I have never met chuck in person, But i would imagine that he would fully suppor the GFDC movement.So here is the next installment.CHUCK NORRIS Chill.taken from the first 30 min of my set at Chi-Cha Lounge on Sat 11.13.10.Enjoy, Download, Share.
I love go-go. percussion is the soul of all music in my opinion.. and the way go-go is centered around the percussion and gives every song a Live feel, is awesome. its specific to the DC area. Our own take on alot of popular songs. A talented Dj, DJ DYNOMIGHT made this go-go Remix of Trey Songz "Can't Be Friends" I will post a download link later. Enjoy!

Bulldog Alley, Leavey Center Georgetown University
It was awesome to be a part of this great event, unique, fresh & new for georgetown, utilizing the great space that is bulldog alley, for some great live music, Hip hop inspired but infused with some rock & reggae & alternative. 3 great acts, a
nd I djayed between their performances. Here is some info on the bands that performed:
The Rising Suns
These dudes are DOPE. A very fresh sound, Think Gym Class Heroes with better vocals & a sick violin on most of the tracks. Its Alternative, Rock, Soul, Hip Hop, Reggae, the lovechild of great genres well mixed together, like a beautiful interracial baby. Im jumping on the bandwagon. They call their sound "Rock & Flow" A brilliant marketing technique & accurate description of their sound.
Here is a video of their Favorite Song of mine, SUPERMAN, performed live @ the GAMS event
Next Artist Kokayi Is a DC Native Grammy Nominated Artist. DUDE is also dope. He gave a great live performance. Reggae, Hip Hop, R&B, Alternative, little Punk rock. Very diverse style with great rhythmic delivery & Enunciation. On a personal note, I love it when rappers can Rap Fast, but ENUNCIATE every word, that takes talent. Kokayi's got it. His album art from his new album Robots & Dinosaurs was dope is filthy, i put the sticker on my turntable coffin
Thursday before Halloween I was a part of an awesome event for Coprodeli USA, a dynamic non-profit that does great things for Peruvian people, primarily they fund lots of schools throughout the country. This was a great night, celebrating the accomplishments and raising money for the organization. In the link below is the an mp3 of the mix i played that night, Forgive me if there are pauses in this mix, i did not master it, Just converted and uploaded.
Very Chill, Downtempo, Latin House & Unique Andean Flute songs i added to my library just for this event. Great background music to match the energy of this great event. Enjoy. Download
I have eclectic tastes, in many ways, especially in music. People often ask me, what do you like? What do you listen to when you are not djaying?....Truth is, I can find a song in every genre that i like. truth. Right now, I love house, I love house remixes of hip hop songs, & I love Neo soul. Creative DJ mash-ups, and weird stuff. This is a mix of some new stuff ive found in the past week or so in all of these genres. & some older stuff. a taste of what is in my cd player in my car right now. Enjoy, Download, Share. this is exactly 1.2 hours of music perfect for a cd. its a folder of mp3 files.
