I SHOULD OF POSTED THESE A LONG TIME AGO.


Over the past few months updating this blog has not been a top priority for either of us. I’ve made a few mixes that should of been posted here a while ago if I was in the mood to describe the feelings that these mixes will bring you…I still am not in the mood but I’m just doing this to fill my need to put out content on a daily basis.

The First of the 2 mixes is called Culture Clash and it was an eclectic mix of world musc and a dash garage rock gems, that lead into a more disco/funk boogie section at the end. I did this mix when I was putting together this party in San Francisco and was feeling advantageous at time and was going to make a limited edition zine and hand screen print all the covers of the cds myself. The show came and went and all I got is a mix I hardly shared. But here it is for you now…


The Second is called Swervin’ and it is my usual blend of bass music, rnb re-edits, and uptempo dance jams. Let me not bore you with details and let the music speak for itself. I’ve been writing all day and not really in the mood to write anymore about why I chose these songs or even want to lay out the track listing.

BOOGIE DOWN. FUCK DETAILS.

Also we are having a party on Saturday the 10th at radio bar come join us… 9pm till 2am.

SpaceGhost // FSCK


And the tracks keep coming from Oakland resident Sudi Wachspress aka Spaceghost, his most recent 5 song ep seems fitting with the weather and vibe I’ve been getting with Oakland recently. Cold dark places with glimmers of optimism and hope. We are all waiting for the summer, blud. Keep the jams coming! Tired is the stand out track for me on this ep, it shows another musical side of Sudi that’s a bit more progressive than his other beats.

1. Drone
2. Dome Home
3. FSCK
4. Feed Me
5. Tired

here’s a video with an apperance by SpaceGhost and I dj’n a party in Alameda we didn’t play the song that the video was edited to. haha….

Booze Wazi: an audio visual art party w/ guest dj Disco Shawn



If you had fun at last month’s edition of booze-wazi come and join us for another dose. That shit was crazy last month we had people dancing on tables, some random dude dropped his pants, and someone even broke one of the lamps. We turned radio bar in to a mad house.

Multi-Channel video projections will be provided by Gold Wave and the folks taking care of the live painting are Project Elefont artist Chris Granillo, Jonny Nagel, and Lorenzo Vasquez.

For the music side of things we are bringing DJ extraordinaire DISCO SHAWN to Oakland to make some of the selections for the night!

If you have been living under a rock and don’t know who Disco Shawn is he’s one of the men behind Bersa Discos, the label that pretty much brought experimental cumbias from Argentina to North America. Shawn’s a resident dj at two of San Fransisco’s dopest parties Tormenta Tropical and Icee Hot. Not to mention an ex- radio dj who was on KALX and Live105. Oh yeah and he’s an editor for Xlr8r as well.

The Resident Dj’s Bobby Peru and Eloi from fool’s paradise radio and Fatees the yole boy reppin’ gurp city/mega kut tapes will be in full force on Saturday.

So stop by and have a cheap drink and maybe dance a little.

9pm to last call.
Shot of Tequila and a Beer $5.
!!$2 well drinks w/ student id!!

Elephant & Castle // Analouge ep


David Reep aka Elephant and Castle hailing from Oakland, Ca put out this EP in August. I completely slept on it until now. An euphoric psychedelic take on beat making with as much floating ambiance as there is neck breaking beats. Music for an early morning hike up a hill with a joint in your pocket to smoke when you get to the top.

take some time out of your day and listen to this..

SpaceGhost // P Y R A M I D D R E A M S


Our homie SpaceGhost put out his new album up for download a few Thursday’s ago and topped off the fun by playing a Dj set on Fool’s Paradise. It’s great watching this guy rock his set. The young’n put out a solid collection of songs to astral travel with. After a few bowl loads you will experience the hypnotic tendencies with SpaceGhost’s music and lose yourself  in some Pyramid dreams.

Should of posted this up a while ago but late is better then never.

Bump this shit.

Jaysonic is one to watch


Originally published by Oakland Local

In an era where pretty much everyone has a computer equipped with digital
music programs like Fruity Loops or Garage Band, it’s refreshing to hear
electronic music made with analog drum machines and synthesizers.

Oakland resident Jason Stinnett, aka Jaysonic, takes that approach to the
next level by using vintage gear combined with the newest electronic
instruments to create his own unique sound. Jaysonic doubles as producer
for Oakland-based electro outfit Hottub and is resident DJ for the first
Friday dance party Le Heat.

This week’s featured track is the LLEGGS Theme by Jaysonic. It features a
thick old-school sounding drum groove, with a crunchy bassline and
slick melodic pads to even it out. Towards the end of the song, it gets a
little dark and experimental, but the repetitive drums keep it hype and up
beat.

This is a jam that the robots of the future will call a classic and the people of today will just brush off, but we aren’t sleeping on this track, we’re dancing.

This Saturday, Oct. 16,  Jaysonic will be spinning electro and disco grooves for Booze-Wazi – a new, monthly audio visual art party at Radio Bar. Come through and listen to the jams that Jaysonic will be bumping through the sound system.

Here’s a bonus …
