A lil Flashback Friday from 2008 (I think?). Sometimes @thecobrasnake just texts me old pics that he finds in his library. This is from the @foolsgoldrecs & @dimmak “Screaming Bloody Murder” Tour. GO HABS GO.
New song out today! This is the 2nd single from @thebrothersmacklovitch , the project that my brother @dave1 and I launched this year. We’ve been going back to a lot of our early influences and this joint is actually a cover of an R&B song from 95, a personal fave of ours, wonder if any of you know it. ⠀ Oh and I scratched on this! 😎 ⠀ ⠀ “I Can Call You”⠀ Produced by @atrak & @dave1 ⠀ Keys by @orangejuliusmusic ⠀ ⠀ Logo & artwork: @swifty_grafix ⠀ Analog retexturing: @savemymind ⠀ Photography: @timsaccenti ⠀ Creative direction: @heavy.nova ⠀ ⠀ Out now on @foolsgoldrecs.

We dug into the @4biddenknowledge on this week’s episode of Duck Duck Goose with our special guest: author, TV host, esoteric specialist, inventor and entrepreneur Billy Carson. Let’s talk about alien civilizations, mind uploading, phase-shifting to higher dimensions, the Anunnaki and anthropomorphic aliens. If you’re in Roswell, New Mexico you can watch us on cable access KOPR, or for everywhere else it’s on YouTube (link in bio). 👽
ROC RAIDA FOREVER. 11 years later we still honor the greatest battle DJ that ever lived. First pic was when I met him, when I was 15. From that point on he always looked out for me. But even prior to that I learned so much from watching his videos. Here’s a few of my favorites. Look at the physicality of his performances. It’s like the turntables were extensions of his arms. Like @djpremier said, look at the faces he was making. He OWNED it. And Raida was the king of flipping a routine on 45, playing shit backwards, etc. He really pushed the boundaries of what could be done to a record. And made it look so easy and fun... but also terrifying 😂😂 RIP to a LEGEND.
Check out how dope @levenkali is. He sang on @thebrothersmacklovitch first single “Give Love To Get Some” (that’s my project with my brother @dave1 , for those who were on a digital diet over the summer). Link in bio to hear the song and the remixes. 🙏🏼 Leven also has an album out called HIGHTIDE, check it out.... By the way.... new Brothers Macklovitch music next week!!! 😎
Today is the 13th anniversary of Kanye’s Graduation album so here’s a drawing he made of me that year while mocking up a new stage show. We were messing with the idea of having me play keyboards in addition to DJing. (I’m not a very good keyboard player.) Lots of good memories from that album - and that year! Feels like a lifetime ago.
Earlier in the week I played a UKG set, live on the @foolsgoldrecs Twitch channel. Just for fun! I wonder if @kayperofficial approves. Will @sebchew approve? Will @thisisjaredjackson approve? What about the homie @iammartelo ? ⠀ Funny thing is, so many of the foundational garage records came out around 96-98, during the same years that I started DJing. And while I was only checking for hip hop then, there’s a familiarity there. I got into it way more in the 2000s though. ⠀ ⠀ Anyway, I posted the full 2 hour set on both SoundCloud and youtube!

Episode 2 of @ducksaucenyc Duck Duck Goose is airing now on local access New Mexico cable (KOPR Roswell) + on youtube. A lot of people don’t know how deep @davidguetta ’s goes! In the 90s he was a party promoter in Paris and here’s the story of how @daftpunk & @edbanger (Busy P) could be found in the small side room at his party.

Been looking forward to this @foolsgoldrecs release for a while!! @djswisha ’s EP Nothing But Net is out today and it’s a distillations of all types, eras, tempos of club music through the lens of this young king. Swisha is leading a new generation of club producers and his ease and fearlessness is inspiring. When we were going over the tracklist we started talking about getting a vocal guest. Since Swisha is from Philly, the idea of a @queenbahamadia feature came up. I always loved her verse on Roni Size “New Forms”. Big shout out to @djeclipsersc & @richmedina for making it happen! Listen to “Crytpo” and the rest of the EP: foolsgold.ffm.to/nbns
