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 African American popular culture & music for their respective times. Here are some YouTube videos to show anyone that is not familiar with the shows.

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, Stanky Legg, 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!

Trey Songz. Cant Be Friends Go-Go Remix

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!

G.A.M.S.- 11.13.10 New Artists!

Friday 11.12.10
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

Checkout their Website: risingsunsrock

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

The first GAMS was a great success and I really look forward to the next one, For more info on GAMS- Email Dan or James - gtowngams@gmail.com

What I am listening to right now.

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.
