#TBT Volume 15 features my remix of Icona Pop’s mega hit “I Love It.” This track was shrouded in controversy – although I had access to the official stems, it was removed for copyright issues from soundcloud, causing me to nearly be removed from the platform altogether. Now it lives solely on LEGITMIX, where it can be legally streamed and purchased. This remix was on it’s way to being huge, and was actually released long before “I Love It” became a hit. Check out my trappy retake on this awesome track.
The good people at Trapped In Berlin dropped me a line and asked me a few questions about life, love, life and love. Ok, they didn’t really ask me questions about love. But they did ask me about Trap music, Skeetwood Mac and some other thangz. Thangz is now a word, because I said so. Enjoy the interview, right HERE.
For those of you who were fans in 2008, you likely remember “Knockin’ Boots,” which was by far my most popular mix at that time. This was a straight up mixtape of 90s R&B slow jams – no mashups, remixes or manipulations… just good old fashioned baby making music. The mix has not been available in digital form for over 5 years – it was actually SOLD as a CD at TurntableLab. Yeah, showing my age. I will be rereleasing the mix with thefuture.fm this Friday!
If I ever have kids, I will “Joe Jackson” them into BBoy competitions. If I don’t have kids, than I will just go adopt these two.
Ok, so this one is barely a “throwback,” considering I just made it 9 months ago. But that’s long enough to conceive and birth a child, which, to me, is long enough to consider something “old.” So here it is – Last Night Daft Punk Changed My Life.
If you were alive in the 90s, you were most likely a fan of “Shorty Swing My Way” by KP & Envyi. I’ve considered remixing this track for a long time and finally found the right inspiration. I was thinking, “what would this track sound like if it was made today by a modern hip hop producer?” (like me, for example)”… and this is what I came up with. The track starts with an acoustic R&B feel, featuring yours truly tickling the keys. As the track progresses, it becomes more of a crunk banger, later moving into an uptempo club track. I hope you like it – I’m really happy with the way it turned out!

If you know me, than you know that I love “Shorty Swing My Way.” I also love “My Boo,” but I digress. This is one of the better songs, like, ever. So I finally decided to man up and remix it… Coming TOMORROW!
I’ve been working on this project for quite a while… and what better time to start talking about it than after their incredible Super Bowl performance? I mean, how AMAZING WAS THAT!?!? This should be dropping in March…
I am only sharing this because it’s a picture of Drake, and I enjoy a good Drake joke. Seriously though, stop taking Drake’s money out of his pocket. He needs it!
This has to be one of the best and worst things ever to rear its ugly head on the internet. I challenge anyone to accomplish the feat of listening to this song for 10 straight hours. I DARE YOU! Thanks to Ian Meyer (who’s brain apparently exploded after 3 hours and 5 minutes, RIP) and Skinny Friedman for the heads up. You can learn a lot on twitter.
