Jam City – Shut The Lites Off (Devil Refix)

great stripped back grime riddim by Jam City here. i’ve been after the white label vinyl since it came out in 2010. this three-track EP goes for > $50 on Discogs…I’d pay that much. it’s probably the best Night Slugs release; all three tracks are perfect.

this one took the longest to grow on me.

More Chinglish // New Music from Coki and Top Billin

If you’re into Chinglish like I am, this sign is a goldmine. Found this at a really chill park just north of Hong Kong plaza yesterday. Pond was filled with big turtles and fish, couldn’t believe no one had eaten them.

I especially love:

1) “Mental patients are prohibited from entering in the park alone”

2) “The 7 Don’ts” – especially “Don’t glean and collect scraps and go begging”

3) “Don’t carry guns & ammos”

Some tracks I’ve been rocking lately. The first just came out on a compilation on one of my favorite labels, Finland’s Top Billin, and Coki needs no introduction. He’s like a compromise between UK dubstep and American brostep, but he’s been doing it forever.

SAFETY 4 LIFE // Diana King – Shy Guy (Dancehall Mix)

it’s monday, and these are the bluest skies i’ve ever seen in Shanghai.

great weekend. major shout out to Sal and Conrank, their sitar plus live dubstep set at Lune was so next-level…please keep doing this!

also gotta give a shout out to Adrian aka ADO8 for asking me to play at his Lo Fi party at Arcade on Friday night. Love that place. Dead Guy Ale on draft, say no more.

we walked to Shelter after that and ran into this guy slangin’ dranks on the corner. “WELCOME TO YONGFU LU BAR!” he shouted.

Mixed drinks were RMB20…street is so out of control.

I’m pressed for time but lots coming this week. DJing in Shaoxing on Friday night then playing at Sal’s Popasuda party @ Dada on Saturday. That’s an all Latin night where we play dancehall, reggaeton, cumbia, and anything else south of Florida. This track has been in every set I’ve ever played there. CLASSIC.

PROTECT DAT GREEN // RICK JAMES

I was up at Xujiahui Park playing some basketball yesterday when I saw this important sign. hadn’t done any sprinting in a long time. i threw up a bit.

first heard this as a young teen on the “Half Baked” soundtrack. played this at the Roller Disco a few weeks ago, went down huge. RIP to the man, Rick James.

SILKIE x LITTLE DRAGON / SLOW JAM ESCALATOR SESH

love this sign because it sounds exactly like 口语. like someone just transcribed a non-native speaker and made a sign of it. articles? naw, fuck that. no time for articles dr. jones. honestly i prefer this casual tone. wish more signs would talk like this…

also love this song. haven’t even heard the original. Silkie kills it every time. seriously next-level. no DL on this in hopes that you’ll buy it and Silkie and Little Dragon will get some money and keep making jams like this.

fun with foods/what are the ten treasures???

ate some soup last night cause i’m sick. i couldn’t afford the double boiled deer penis with ten treasures but was assured that it would “enhance masculinity,” i.e. it’s “good for man.” But honestly I ate some “good for man” soup one time (cow balls…) and I had sex like four times that night so I don’t necessarily doubt this.

some Friday tunes for you.

get it up

real quick post this morning, just wanna put some music up for ya’ll. Some dubstep and some…i don’t know but this mz. bratt track is really hype.

just downloaded so much music I shouldn’t have on my hard drive for a commercial gig on Saturday night at Ruby’s Club in Jing An (ladies drink for free…) MC One Consciousness and I used to skateboard in front of that club, back when it was CD Club. Pretty sure it was a mafia spot. Anyway I’m gonna play a lot of Nicki Minaj, and possibly (likely) some tunes I’m ashamed to play but no matter how much they pay me I will not play Black Eyed Peas. Even if the mafia dem come at me with their knives, gleaming in the lazers and sweat.
