#TBT – Summer Mix For BroBible

The Melker Project BroBible Summer Mix

For #TBT, I am throwing it way back – to three weeks ago. I composed this 30 minute mix tape for BroBible, and it’s really awesome (if I do say so myself). It is chalk full of my remixes, mashups and edits, many of which have never been heard before. Put this on while you are watching your favorite World Cup team and get pumped!

Decades Later, A New Glitch Is Discovered In Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros

In the grand scheme of über nerdery, few activities surpass spending countless hours playing retro games on an original Nintendo. Also, few things are as awesome. Some Grand Maester of the House Of Dorkanus discovered, decades later, a glitch that allows players of Super Mario Bros. to receive infinite 1 Ups in a complicated scheme worthy of Edward Snowden (or the creators of Ikari Warriors, amirite?). As described on the site RetroCollect - First, you must first take player one’s Mario to the second level of the game and throw away your first life. With Luigi taking over, player two must traverse all the way to World 5-2 and find the hidden beanstalk block halfway through the stage. Once there, Luigi must start climbing the vines, however, he must await – and take on the chin – an incoming projectile from one of the Hammer Bros. Upon being hit, once player one resumes control of Mario, the beanstalk from World 5-2 will start growing in World 1-2, providing all you need to infinitely kick shells for unlimited bonuses.

A few things to consider. First, whoever is controlling Luigi in the video below is a stone cold Mario pimp. This dude cruises through obstacles like a mythical flying beast on meth. I’ve never seen someone play so well. Second, the hours of game play and complete random luck required to discover the glitch are mind boggling.  Third, and perhaps most importantly, Mario looks like he is twerking, backin’ that ass up, dropping it low, or whatever hip-hop-ism you find appropriate.  I may have to put this video to music.

Also, this gives me the perfect opportunity to share this throwback gem of mine, sampling the Mario Bros. theme song.

Coming Soon – TRILLER!

Thriller-2

For my 6th EP focusing on a single artist, I have decided to tackle the immense catalogue of the one and only King Of Pop, Michael Jackson. The release date has not been determined, as I am still working on the art work and final concept (Michael Crackson? Michael Trapson?), but I do know that the album will be called “TRILLER.” The music is almost completed, and I am very excited to share it with the world… so get ready, because TRILLER IS COMING!

Ballin’ Oates – One Of XPN’s Top Posts Of All Time

BALLIN OATES
I went to the University Of Pennsylvania. They have a radio station. That radio station posted Ballin’ Oates on their website. That website just celebrated their 10,000th post, and included Ballin’ Oates as one of their 10 top posts of all time. They used the artwork from Ballin’ Oates for said post. That is really cool. You can read about it here. On a side note, I was a radio DJ at Penn – but we were on AM, having been KICKED OFF OF FM the year before.

Interview on JoyOfViolentMovement.Com

Scott Melker Interview

Few blogs have shown as much support for The Melker Project as The Joy Of Violent Movement, an incredible one-man-show based in New York. William reached out to me recently with a few interview questions, which I happily answered here. We discussed everything from my musical influences to what it’s like to share a stage with Snoop Dogg. Enjoy!

Phil Collins Is Back! And Performing with Middle School Kids!?

It is not often that I find my mind completely blown. Today it was shattered to pieces. Phil Collins, who has not performed publicly since 2010, decided to make his 2014 comeback – at Miami Country Day school, backed by a bunch of Middle School kids. I could not make this up if I tried. I do not understand how it happened. I am so angry that I missed it. Ugh, just watch. I hope he is back for good.

Oh yeah, also this – TRILL COLLINS!

The Melker Project BroBible Summer Mix

It has been a while since I released a proper mixtape (The Melker Project 3 was the last one), so when the good people at BroBible asked me to put something together for their “Summer Mix 2014,” I jumped at the opportunity. This mix features 30 genre busting minutes of musical mayhem, with heavy doses of hip hop, trap and twerk (and even some Ozzy Osbourne). This is the same set I played live at BC Fest in Washington DC. The download is FREE RIGHT HERE, so get it while you can!
