Episode 32: Italoboyz Return To Phoenix Landing

Ah Italoboyz What can we say? Thank you for beating the sound system so sweetly. Thank you for dropping the exclusive edit bombs. Thank you for making us go crazy with two tracktor scratches simultaneously. Thank you for washing reverb over almost everything, and pounding of the jacking house music like the super stars you are!

If you were there to see Italoboyz beat the Phoenix Landing to pieces on for Midweek Techno 6/11/08 (Elyte’s B-day!) you know the of the dance music destruction that we speak of. Following their recent success of anthems like “Zinga “on Get Physical and “Bahia” on Mothership Music, The Boyz aka Marco and Fede have jumped feet first into a touring schedule made of dreams. We wish them the best for the summer months and can’t wait until they return.

Soulclap @ AirDrop QuackParty (Bar13) 5/30/08 – DOWNLOAD

Originally posted as AirPod Nº8 on AirDrop.com, this was the only set that survived the nite after our recorder over-heated and we actually lost the last 30 minutes which is when it got really crazy. But it’s still a very exciting mix of techno/house/garage for our “die Ente” release party in NYC.

Bonus Episode: Elyte at D.O.T.C. 6.14.08

Whoever says there’s no such thing as instant gratification doesn’t know how we do it on the mothership. But before I explain I want to thank everyone that came through Redline on Saturday and filled our indoor edition of D.O.T.C. with the kind of energy that dreams are made of. Trus’me kept the packed dancefloor moving with his amazing blend of disco, house, techno and beyond for the last two hours, but before that I had the chance to play some proper partytime house music. So before we serve you with the next official episode of the podcast here’s a little bonus live set from your’s truly, no tracklist, just the goods. See you back at the Marsh Post on June 28th!

eli-green.jpg

Up until last week I had played at Phoenix Wednesdays 3 times since we started our residency there and each time something went wrong with the recording. But I guess the 4th times the charm because the recorder finally worked and it sure was good timing because it was my first chance to play the closing set and I was already feeling Miami mode. Needless to say the recording came out dope and it’s the perfect pre-WMC podcast cause it’s all bouncy house and techno fo dat azz. See you in the sun…

mixTAPE Time 4: Jazz…We Got

jazz we got front

Jazz we got back

I’m smashing it today, right? Pics from DOTC2 and a new podcast live from Monaco so far and now something totally different.

So I went to high-school with Ross The Boss (F.K.A. DJ Rook) who is a seriously dope bedroom hip-hop DJ and has a headie podcast that you can check here. Dude is a also a talented jazz piano player and we used to rock together when I played saxophone. We also DJed together alot and in 1999 decided to hook our people up with with a Xmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza mixtape for the ages. It’s all jazz music and all mixed in weird and crazy ways with some dope scratch interludes from R.T.B. I dug out the tape a few months back and Ross ripped it, hosted it and posted each side on his podcast and now I’m reposting here. You can also check his take on things and some nice jazz pics and liner notes on his page. Please excuse the sound quality, it’s a tape. These are still some of my favorite jazz tunes and I hope you enjoy it!
