Saturday evening in April. Hanging with Dylan, my 15 year-old. Spinning everything from funk to hip-hop to pop to dance to electronic. Plus some other stuff in-between. We're still working on our transitions, but we're having fun. Enjoy!
Kid Destroyer and Mervinator were joined by their Teenage daughters for a set that spans hip-hop, 80s alt, pop, classic rock, beats, and more beats. It's our party, and there was a whole lotta dancing going on!
Went freeform a bit. Started with some hip-hop, including a track my 15-year-old daughter called out as totally inappropriate (ha, I'll let you guess which one. than moved into some latin-house and dancey remixes. Enjoy the listen....
I fuck up in the first 5 min. Total record scratch. From there we dive into just some of my fave indie tracks. Sort of moody, sort of killer, and no filler whatsoever. hope you like!
Celebrating a great day in America. A newly elected president. It was time to party. Except for an early train wreck, it was a blast of a set. Hope you like.
I wasn't sure what to do with myself on election night. So i played some funk. Some Soul. Some songs that made me mad, some that made me sad, and a few that made me shake my ass. All Soul. All emotion. And a really good showcase of what i was feeling right about then. Hope you like.
In the late 90s, my friends and I started a record label called Derailed. We never made much money, but it wasn’t about that. We put out a lot of music on vinyl, and dj’d together everywhere.
Next week we are putting out our first track in almost 20 years. The artist is 240PAS, and it is as catchy as anything we ever released.
I debuted it at around minute 74 in this set. Watch the set or download the .mp3 of the set below. The set is a slow build to a barnstormer of shake your ass dance floor music.
Pre-add the track to your preferred music service here: https://sparta.ffm.to/skratch-that-kitty
And lastly, follow 240PAS on Instagram here: https://instagram.com/forrealz240pas?igshid=138ybbmtk40q
We’ll have it on tik tok and others places very soon. Have some fun please and enjoy!
Whoof. A bit rough of a start. Tried adding in some tracks off digital not just vinyl, and wow. still need to learn that better. Plus my sons friends called my ipad in the middle of a song. Was great. Once we got moving tho it was a fun little journey from funk and soul, through some 80s and into some beats. Wasn't my best set, but had some fun either way. Hope you like.
Sunday Sunrise set. Plenty of abstract loveliness rounding out with some funky.... Artists include an early heavy up on Massive Attack/Mad Professor, DJ Krush and even more DJ Krush, diving down deep into some remixes with Bebel Geberto, Stereo MCs, Jazzanova, before landing on some St.Paul and The Broken Bones and Aretha Franklin.
First set with the new setup. Updated graphics. More cameras, and a more pre-planned set. Started with some jazzy funky vibes and ventured over towards abstract Jazz, hip-hop, and soundscapes.
Mostly indie, funk, and Stomp and Holler.
