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!
