I trust you are all good out there. Don’t wanna take up much time, just have a few things to share real quick.
I am feeling incredibly inspired these days. I’m loving and creating some of the best music I’ve ever made. My focus is dead on… This is all because I finally took a break!
Let me fill you in. I’m driving around the big island of Hawaii by myself. I find a tree by a beach and lay under the shade. I wake up 2 hours later and the tops of my legs are burnt to shit… Then it hits me… Tanning is NOT for me! I gotta get back in my dark studio and make some music!!!
Honestly though, while away I realized I’ve been touring and grinding so hard, that I forgot to take the necessary time to ENJOY the music. Just sit and listen… as a fan, not as DJ. The process took me back to the reason why I got into this stuff in the first place. It’s about connecting with it all. So that’s what I’ve been doing… Reconnecting… with my music, with myself, with my people.
I just completed a 45 minute Hip Hop mix for BBC Radio 1 with that feeling in mind and I’d love for you to hear it. It’s basically a return to form. Me going back to my roots. There are some dope exclusives in there too. Check for the brand new tune I did with my homie Brillz called “808 in The Trunk”. Our first collab, Jay Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” Remix, got such a good response we HAD to get back in the studio. You can listen to the mix right here.
While in the studio I came across a small stash of rare records I’ve made. I stopped and realized WTF am I doing hoarding these? They should be in YOUR collection! So, I’ve decided to make them available in my store. Right now I have 10 copies of my first 7″, 30 copies of the white vinyl 10″ of “Breakfast Club”, 35 copies of my “Test Press”, etc… Some rare CDs too. It’s all first come, first serve till they’re gone. Enjoy!
Oh, and one more thing on the re-connecting tip. See those little social icons on the left? That’s where I’m at these days. Feel free to follow me on ALL of ’em (and “like” everything I post to unlock the secret code).
Seriously though, THANK YOU ALL for your support. Stay tuned for more music.
