I just came back from a week-long vacation from Disney World and for as awesome as Epcot is, it won't ever be as cool as it was. Here's some old footy from some things i miss.
This video's volume is really low, but the video itself is awesome.
And this is my favorite ride, Horizons, which they replaced with Mission To Mars. Whap Whap Whaaaaahh.

This week, I kinda spazzed out and went all over the board for this mix, so don't look for any blends on this one, but DO look for downright dope on plastic. From Jazz to Blues to Dreamy to that new-old Soul sound, every song should make you feel something down deep. As per usual, this was recorded live at LVL 25 @ The Conrad Hotel. The first half is all vinyl, second half is serato. I figured since it's the post Thanksgiving edition, and Thanksgiving is less about the tradition (for me at least) and more about food, I would finally post this picture of the wonderful candy strawberries at the street fair in Italy. Everytime I look at it, it makes me want to fly back and eat one.

So apparently my man, Mike 'Deuce', is an unregistered citizen of the US; so on our way to Latin Cafe (should've been my first hint) for breakfast, (I'm freshly awake and rockin my Bowery Hotel slippers) we get pulled over . . .
3 more squad cars later, they frisk dude and put him in the back of their car after an "Immigration Violation" comes up on their laptop w/ a pic of him. While I, fresh from losing my wallet in NYC, have no ID to show the officers. The move??
c: "Nah, I dunno the guy."
p: "Do you have a cell phone?"
p: "Ok, you're free to go, but we're towing this car, so you should probably call someone to pick you up."
10 minutes later, Aramis scoops me up in the Porsche. Mike's going downtown.
EDIT: He's freeish now; but unless you're clean, don't hang out w/ dude, anywhere.

i took the opportunity of posting a bit early and getting some things off my chest about this and the past few years of art basel. it seems to me that there is a high lack of "interesting" art out there and by interesting i mean things with a nice deep conceptual base and technical skill, it seems to me that most of this has been replaced with stuff that's cool. i do understand that art is a business in in order for the business to keep going you need to sell product, but it seems like there is a lack of quality but there is a lot more quantity. i cannot say this year will be great but from what i have seen so far again... its just more cool hip stuff. kinda like what happened to hip hop. oof lets not even go there.. speaking of hip hop not to go to much off topic, chocolate Sundays a party that most of us ( on the blog) dj at is having its regular monthly spelling bee this dec 7th and they are themeing it a 90s jam. meaning come dressed out in your best 90s gear (if you have some cross colors shit i suggest you bring that out) nautica jackets baggy jeans etc. i am looking more forward t that than the circus of what we call the art market that will be hitting us in a few days. (I've seen mad head sell out for cheap fame) by all means go and get yours but don't sell yourself short trying to achieve an imaginary place in a market who will only see you for the trend you are in... to me art should be able to stand the test of time and not just some trend that you see some dudes do and you think hey i can do that too that shits cool.
hahah ok imma stop hating yall do you
imma do me :)
i think its time for some revelations

The Swedes just[like 2 minutes ago, so we're dealing with now] hit me up w/ their (finally mastered) remix of DJ Mujava's Township Funk. The OG pretty much followed me around everywhere I went to dj outside of Miami these past couple months; but hopefully some Miamians(?) will pick up this version, and let it take over.

I've been back a couple weeks now, but probably the best time I had while DJing in LA happened at this party, The Do-Over. Thrown by Stones Throw affiliates Aloe Black, Jamie Strong, and Chris Haycock, The Do-Over is a seasonal party that happens during the Summer, starts at 4 in the afternoon and is just simply about good music. Coincidentally, the week I played was the last installment of the Do-Over for the season so it was total blow out style with like, 8 DJ's including Dam Funk, J-Rocc, Peanut Butter Wolf, Madlib, and even detroit repper House Shoes showed up and played a few. LA showed me lots of love and I would like to thank everyone at the Do-Over (as if people read this blog), ya'll made me feel at home. Big Up to Jamie and Aloe, and especially the mayor of LA, Havanna Joe for making it happen. This mix is ALL VINYL - No MP3's, no represses. Get with it if you can.

DJ WEDDING DJ
The Olde Addict Records is proud to announce the release of Doormouse's newest mix, 100% Pure Wisconsin Cheese.
While the Nu Addict Records seems swept up in a wave of 'in your face' internet posts and even more in your face 'breakcore', the Olde camp marches on in a display of keeping with the times with a mix full of your favorite artists. Artists like Akon, Justin Timberlake, Freestyle, Squarepusher, DJ Funk, L.O.N.S, Daft Punk, Debbie Bed, Uncle Al, Pitbull, Rick James and many, many more!!!
While other artists prefer to release on labels that they themselves have labeled 'lame', Doormouse keeps the faith right at home.
Executive Producer DJ Wedding DJ sees big thing for this 'net release, and has promised a follow up with a hottmixx of his own.
The choice is yours and the choice is simple, nu gimmicks with empty feelings or olde quality with products that last.

So I was kinda excited for the show -- not really our part of it, but more the 'everything but us' part. I mean, this is 'the guy'. He is on top on top. He's the dude in the orgy who is like: "Aight, who is licking on my toes?!" [Hmm, that analogy totally fell short of what was once funny in my head; but here's to no rewrites in '08.]
Anyways, as I was saying; so he's on top of the game killin everyone Rambo II style; and for the top guy doin his 'on top show', Saltmaster Flash (that'd be me) kinda felt it wasn't all that great. I mean, its hard to knock a show that is stacked full of classic/soon-to-be-classic bangers, but even so, we're working somewhere in the ranges of 7.5 out of 10, definitely no higher than 6.5. You know, being the balanced critic that I am, (a luxury which I like to afford myself, as its waaayy easier than actually making 70 gazillion hit songs), I was definitely let down. If i were a fan spending $300 to get close enough to feel his sweat fall on me, I probably wouldn't really care either way, but back-row seats people -- i know you hear me.
I wish i had more photos/video of the show --- especially his 1990's techno-screensaver graphics that were projected on the massive screens above the stage. But below is pretty much all I snapped.
The "I Got So Many Hits" Encore Segment:
* yeah DJ AM (looking like not a damn thing happened to him) was on stage as Jayz DJ; as in there were turntables on stage, and he had headphones on sometimes -- but i'm thinking it prolly went along the lines of what Craze does w/ Kanye now -- cuz there was a mega ProTools station at the side of the stage.

So, I have been holding on to these for a while and just wanted to share them. For as amazing as they are, they can not even come near to the holy cloth of the man himself.
The other day, some friends and I are sitting and eating dinner, talking about who knows what, when we hear this huge sound of metal on metal. It sounded a bit far so it wasn't loud enough to frighten us, but it was loud enough to spark our attention, that is, until our falafel came and we quickly forgot about it, writing the noise off as simply someone taking out the garbage, the sound a dumpster might make.
About 10 minutes go by and my friends dad, who is as inquisitive and quirky as an 11 year old, couldn't let it go (neither could I, but I was too lazy to get up, as per usual), and he walks to the back alley of the restaurant. Needless to say, the huge noise we heard was actually what it sounds like when your Valet guy falls asleep at the wheel and drives your brand new BMW SUV over a ledge and on top of a couple other cars. I think he was just jealous there was another BMW SUV in the area. Funny thing is, there's this huge crowd of rubberneckers (including me) and the dude is still asleep behind the wheel and the cops aren't there yet. Eventually, a paramedic jumps on top of the hood of the Magnum and the dude gets pulled out the window, wakes up, and finds all the change he was stealing had fallen out of his pockets. Whomp whomp.
This sooo needs to be a BMW SUV commercial. and maybe a TV show too called: BMW SUV:Miami.
So I know the image isn't great, but it's the only one I have.

So as many of you don't know i just got back from chi, OK more like last week. I've just been a tad lazy on uploading my pictures from my digi-cam, which are not all that great. first of all id like to say that Chicago (from what i know) has the best style of American food I've ever experienced (u know pizza, hot dogs, burgers) and a very large number of very cheap and good Mexican restaurants. Another thingy noticed about chi is that there are not only a few but a large amount of record stores, and when you walk in there's people actually buying vinyl.
a metal style burger joint whose burger names range from every good metal band you can imagine. this here is the slayer. no bread just burger goodness
for some reason the pic is not the right angle
best stuffed pizza ever
gourmet hot dogs, this place is awesome and i wish there was one down here. they have weird sausages like deer, elk, ostrich, gator etc etc.
gator sausage with blue cheese
now what i really wanted to see was a good ol' juke style dance formation, but i didn't get to see that. maybe next time chi town
special thanks to all the homies out there who posted me up and showed me around, Mando, Gloe, Dirty 30, Vibrator crew (II) and anyone else i forgot.

Yo i got the ill nasal drip, and its not from putting anything in my schnose. As i get ready to head up north (chicago) i get the feeling that i really need to get over this (whatever it is) cold? i heard its nice and cool up there not to mention windy and a tad dry so last thing i need is to head up there with a weak imune system (hopes for the best). Today i'll be going a different route with the upload, no funk/soul this time. As all of you do not know i am an avid oldschool electro/ miami bass collector so here I'm going for some classic Cali electro/freestyle from the year 1988 i bring you segment 2. You've probably never heard of them, mainly because they only released one single on tandeem records (cameron pauls label) none the less i really used to enjoy playing this track out (98-2003 ish) went well with other more well known cali tracks (x-men bonus beats, this is a test, Chain gang) hopefully you'll enjoy i as much as i have i decided to upload the Dub version for its lack of verses and added (fun) samples/ chop ups. If you dont who cameron paul was heres a nice little video i found on you tube about dude mixing it up, hes not mix master mike but he throws it down.
and heres him talking a bit abou the bay area scene
haha that vid is classic
anywho enough with my vids and shit, like you cant go look for yourselves (sheesh)
segment 2- cold pump that body dub
here a link to the actual track on youtube with verses
maybe next post ill do something about dj efx

and what a message i have, i cant stand having some sort of cough or sickness. so far i've been bed ridden mainly because of my foot and now i have a sore throat, whatever no one cares haha now for my joy.
Cymande - what a great group, bringing us hits like brothers on the slide and BRA. formed in London England around 1971 , they mixed a form of calypso jazz music and American soul. too bad they disbanded 4 years later. i bring to you their initial single "the message" sampled by masta ace "me & the biz," and MC Solaar : Bouge de là

It has been recently brought to my attention, as if i already did not know. I haven't been posting a lot recently, mostly because i have found myself not having anything to post about. Well fellow dj friend Contra explained to me no one cares. He gave me a few ideas of what i could post, since i have been ripping my vinyl collection to mptrees (not WAV sorry not enough room, nor money. so save it ryan) i'll be uploading atleast one track per week. Why just one track? because im greedy AHAHAHAHA ALL MINE COOKIE YUM, and lazy.
Anywho without further adue Lester Abrams AKA a lot of other bands but mostly i really appreciate this track. L.A Carnival, which used to be the les smith soul band, lester changed the name to LA carnival. The group was not a very big hit during the time, as for the group it slowly faded away.
which reminds me, off topic last night as i was laying i am of one color. My boy decided to ask me if i have any lighter shade of brown or fuschinckens which i dont. so i need to remember to get that, and what other way to do so than to post it here.
so now that i went of on a rant about something that has nothing to do with LA carnival or the track color
here it is for you
La Carnival- Color edit
also heres a nice little interview by stones throw on boob tube you snoob lube yoube

Found this cool illustration & animation(below) at NeuBlack.
* Well, it pretty much works with most anything u want to play on top of it. So you know, have fun w/ that.
Also, they wrote up on this site -- Cymbolism.com
You know how they say that colors trigger/inspire certain moods/desires/thoughts within the human body? Well, how about what words invoke colors?
If I say "Confusion" . . . what color would you associate to that word? Go ahead and check out the site --- pretty interesting to see which colors most people relate to each word.
Apparently, according to an "I'm in the know" friend of mine, I'm one of the last remaining people that still uses Hotmail as my primary e-mail account; I guess my spam-filter blocked that "G-mail is IN" msg.

I recently took a trip to Italy with my good friend and associate, Aramis. We stayed, for the most part, in a small town called Ortona, which is, historically, an important city in Italy because of its port and has been involved in many wars. Parts of the town were built over 1,000 years ago and the whole town itself was originally surrounded by a stone wall, which was built with any type of stone or rock that could be found laying around, including ancient roman ruins.
Ok, enough with the boring history lesson. Anyway one night Aramis and I found ourselves standing in front of this castle, weary yet intrigued. We had heard stories about ghosts and Pagan shrines found in excavation and at 4am, there ain't much to do in Ortona except jump a fence and trespass in a 1,400 year old castle. That or have drunken sex with some hot, slightly over-tanned, yet hopefully undersexed Italian woman, but unless it was between me and Aramis, ain't none of that mess was happening on our trip. (What am I even talking about??!?!?)
Either way, we're standing outside of this ancient, powerful symbol of times past, Aramis looking slightly hesitant - scratch that, not slightly, VERY! As per usual, I'm looking to get into some trouble, urging Aramis that the time is NIGH! I say we just go in, see how to actually get into the castle and take a quick look before we come back tomorrow for the real deal adventure. He regretfully agrees and we run back to Mario's to grab the smallest flashlight we could find. Actually, this town is so dead quiet at night that running would have been too loud and even our normal pace of walking was making way too much noise.
Let's do the math: Ancient, mostly destroyed, possibly haunted Castle + the darkness of 4am + Dead Silence = Indiana Jones!
I dream of shit like this. For real if anyone in Miami is into this whole "Urban Exploration" thing, holler at me.
So on we go, we hop the fence, which is almost a joke if it's meant to keep people out (did I mention the castle is closed to the public??), and take our first steps into the unknown. I think you can actually see a ghost in a couple of them. Or maybe a Dark Overlord.
One last thing before this post starts to get long-winded (as if it hasn't already). I was and still am under the impression that there would be rooms and chambers and cellars and torture rooms, but as you can see in the pictures, there didn't seem to be any of that. Where the pictures were taken is only a fraction of how far down the castle's foundations are and I am still determined to find such rooms, even if they tell me that some war called "World War 2" basically bombed out everything and it was all covered in dirt. I DON'T BELIEVE 'EM!!! This castle was built into a mountain and there's gotta be a secret passageway somewhere at the bottom or something. I guess I'll find out next year!
