DJ Cupid (ft. Ria Dixon & Chioke of The Dime)

I’m a dj first, so the songs I make are an outgrowth of that. Turntables and pro tools are pretty much the only elements I work with. This was one of the first scratch compositions I ever recorded at DJ Icewater’s Corner Store studios. The time finally came for Ria and Chioke to bless it with their vocals. Peep how the lyrics run with the whole concept.

Underground Soul Mix

This was a mix I originally used for DJ Platurn’s radio show on I liked how it came out, I re-recorded it at the house in one take. This stuff is across the board, from underground groups (Belleruche, Lack of Afro) to good hip hop (Camp Lo, Eric B and Rakim) to classic soul (Gwen and George McCrae).

The Influence, Part II

A little representation of the Record Rockers.  We each did a mix that represented some of our musical influences, past and present.  I stitched it all together and put down an intro.  (Keep in mind that this is from around 2007.)  A lot of different genres & tastes get shine:
Record Rockers Intro
Solo’s Breakadawn Mix
Billy Ruckus’s Real Rock Mix
Big Man 808′s Ghettopop Mix
Crimson’s Summer Madness Mix

The Influence, Part I

A mix I made when we (The Bay Area Record Rockers) first started doing our Influence parties at Otis Lounge in SF. I start off this pre-Serato mix with a Nas blend and get into some classic soul and original samples.

The Influence: Live at Element Lounge

For 2 years the Bay Area Record Rockers threw a party at Element Lounge called The Influence. This was a party-rocking set from me…what’s acceptable at a mainstream club has changed a lot since 2008, when this was recorded. (i.e., no electro mashup madness on this mix.)
