GIVING IT UP FOR THE EXTENDED FAM

March 5, 2009

One of the best things about being in an industry with like-minded peers is that they’re always going to be your inspiration to do more with the craft. That said, I have to tip my hat to my mans’n’em for busting out the gate with some genius concepts for mixes.

One of the deadliest dudes on the decks this side of Durham is my man DJ Riccachet, half of Sweet Touch Foundation.

His latest work is in concert with his monthly jam for the music connoisseur: HEAVY ROTATION. It is god damn fire. Weaving through genres and eras, voices and vibes, Rick flexes his sonic knowhow something crazy. Shouts to Thera-P, Merciless, and Young Jedi, Wan Luv & Roundtable Ent.

HEAVY ROTATION V.2 – DJ RICCCACHET HOSTED BY WAN LUV

At this time, no one’s harder on their grind (PAUSEEEEE) more than the kid DJ Royale. In a month, he’s gone in with no less than 4 mixes to bop you while you ride the subway (much like a ‘Lo Life, but that’s another story). His lane has been that street rap. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but he’s found his outlet to get it to the masses with his hopefully bi-monthly RE-UP mix, hosted by Big Philly. Here, Young Rot goes in with a tribute to exiled Dipset rapper Cam’Ron. Shouts to Committee Design for the throw-up!

DJ ROYALE – The Re-up February Edition Part.2 – HOSTED BY BIG PHILLY

Finally…and FINALLY, is what could very well be the introduction of GRAND GROOVE DJ’S that they so rightfully deserve. Big Jacks and Royale have been talking about this concept for the longest time, and for it to finally to fruition is definitely an achievement. Paying homage to one of their favorite NYC blend tapes, G-Bo the Pro and Double R’s #21, GG update the tape for the times, blending hot songs of the 2000’s with old school standards. Destined to be an ipod classic. Cop it quick!
