I am really excited about doing this project. I had been toying with the idea for a minute and now it’s here – The Jesterdamus Mix Show. I used the name ‘Jesterdamus’ because it kind of became my production alias. I will be airing this 1 hour electro/remix/b’more mix on Globe Radio and it will also be available in my podcast area for all those that subscribe to it. Hope you enjoy the mixes. Prepare yourself for the energy. It’s Not A Joke.
In this day & age of music being so accessible – this is one genre where I can actually say it is hard to find certain songs/productions. I can’t say I have always been a fan of electro house, but it is a art form that I have grown to love. From A-Trak to the late DJ AM, those are just 2 DJs who really opened my eyes to this genre of music. Either you love it or hate it. Nowadays, electro has been brought to the mainstream by artists like The Black Eyed Peas, Kid Cudi, Akon, PItbull & LMFAO… But still have underground artists/producers like Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Deadmau5, Crookers & so many more.
This clip is the trailer for The Electro Wars. A look into the world of electro house – the culture, the producers & the lifestyle with features from Justice, A-Trak, Steve Aoki, LMFAO, Lil Jon, Laidback Luke, Crookers + more. For more on this documentary log on to TheElectroWars.com
Open your mind… musically.
I couldn’t think of a better DJ to fill the shoes of the late DJ AM. A-Trak & Travis Barker team up to take there stage show on the road. I look forward to witness this collabo in person. Shouts to A-Trak.
J Dilla’s legacy lives on. Vinyl will never die as far as I’m concerned. This is a DJ must have for those true hip hop enthusiasts. Here’s the official Stones Throw press release:
Serato and Stones Throw have teamed with the J Dilla Estate for the official J Dilla Serato release, Donut Shop. This is 2 discs with six J Dilla tracks, 2 sides with Serato Control Tone (for use with Serato Scratch Live DJ software), and 2 donut slipmats in a package designed by Studio No.1. This will be released May 10th (the day after Mother’s day–what’s up Ma Dukes?). Pre-order is available now.
The J Dilla tracks consist of three previously unreleased instrumentals selected by J.Rocc from the Dilla archives – “Safety Dance”, “Sycamore”, “Bars & Twists” – and three unreleased instrumental versions of Dilla’s production for Mos Def, Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes, each remastered by Elysian Masters who mixed and mastered J Dilla’s Donuts, The Shining and Ruff Draft albums.
Serato Scratch Live is the leading vinyl emulation software, used worldwide by professional and bedroom DJs alike. This is an officially licensed release of Pay Jay Productions, aka the J Dilla Estate, with Stones Throw and Serato.
