Like I always say, if you like it, PRETTY FUCKING PLEASE share it with everyone! I LOVE YOU! HOLIDAYS & SHIT!
The definition of the word “local” has been augmented by today’s scene kids to mean something almost derogatory. Time and time again I hear things like “Eh, he’s local, I can catch him whenever” or “It’s just a group of local DJs” or “He’s local, how good can he be?” Does anyone ever stop for a second and realize that everybody has to be from somewhere? Literally every human being is local to some place.
It used to mean a person from the area. A native. Apply that to the music or entertainment industry and it suddenly becomes synonymous with adjectives like “sub-par.” I obviously can’t speak for every city, but in a good majority of the ones I’ve been in and the people I talk to agree.
I don’t know if the average listener (aka the expert critic) knows this or not: describing someone as local does something to that person’s brain. It sort of alters them. They may not know exactly when, or how, but it does happen. These homegrown DJs (and I use DJ because that’s my background, I’m certain you can replace that with band) go to a gig at a bar or club with at best a fair turnout, at worst they show up with just their friends and a handful of other seemingly uninterested people standing around. This can be disheartening. The DJ may start having thoughts like “Oh this is just some ‘local’ thing, I’m playing mostly for my friends.” I feel like that’s when they don’t give it their all. Not only do they feel it’s not worth it because of the lack of audience, but also because it’s “local” and it’ll happen again (no big deal). This is when the DJ just sort of stands there, looking almost upset & bored that he has to do this and the audience gets the human equivalent of paint drying.
I genuinely feel like DJs and other musicians feel held back by the word local. It’s as if people who paint them with that word assume they’ll never go anywhere else. Where’s the faith? The love? The pride in your city? While we’re at it, what does it take to become more than a local? I’ve played all over the country but I still live somewhere, so when I play in my home city I’m “just a local.” When does that title vanish? Plenty of other DJs from my city have played in other necks of the woods as well. You hear things like “At first she didn’t want it, now I made it and she’s asking me to take it!” in nearly every rap song (I just made that up by the way, I should rap!) Then there’s the whole other topic of “making it”, but even then said made person has to live somewhere. He’s local to NYC or LA or wherever.
I guess what it boils down to is show some love to your city’s artists. They work hard. They want to show you what they can do and they want to entertain you (and you want to be entertained, right?). You may be surprised at what “just a local” can do. Some of us have been around the block and learned a thing or two. We all come from somewhere, but it’s where we go that really matters to me. Don’t you want to be a part of that? Isn’t it one of the coolest feelings in the world to say “Oh THAT DJ?! I was hanging out with him at dirty $5 shows a long time ago!” You never know, we might just up and move away, giving a totally new group of people to call us locals. You don’t want that, do you?
I know it’s been several weeks since the last podcast, and for that I’m sorry. A whole big bunch has happened since then, but now I’m back on track and should be able to deliver these bad mf’ers at least semi-regularly now!

A few months ago, I hosted a Japanese exchange student for a couple of weeks. It was an interesting experience because I went out of my way to find a bunch of current J-pop and dance music for her to listen to, only to find out that she just wanted to jam to some Taylor Swift. Go figure.
The result is that I’ve had the land of the rising sun on my brain for a while and decided I needed to come correct with a studio mix inspired by whiskey, babes and culture clashes.
For relaxing times, make it Suntory Time!

We all loved back in 2000/2001 when 2step was that hot shit you cranked on a sunny day to get you in the drinkin’ mood. If you weren’t a part of it you’re probably a big ass dork. Or just young.

Hello gang, it’s been a little bit since I’ve done a podcast, what with Kevin doing the last one and us having the David Banjela interview and all. Since each of those had different tastes of gnarly house music, I decided to add my own taste to the group with some disco-centric jams. Get fuckin’ busy!!

EJ and I have long since been huge fans of our old friend David Banjela, from LA. He would be like “bitch, don’t call me old on the internet!” and I’d be all “step off, Rayanne Graff” and then he would serve me with the kind of spicy Latino face usually reserved for underage chorizo at the Roxy wearing last season’s Prada.

Man, EJ and I have been doing this site for a while now and I haven’t put up a goddamn lick of music! It’s shameful really. We’ve got a full-length, double-disc summer spectacular ready to drop in the next week, and we both have new DHDH podcasts coming in the next 1-2 weeks as well, but in the meantime, here’s a classic oldskool hardcore, 2-step, rap and breakbeat mix that I made hailing from allllllll the way back in 2004!

A lot of our friends are musicians by trade and it can be a cutthroat business to navigate, so I wanted to pass along a recommendation for my finance guy, Dan Montez. He’s the double-bass pedal of accounting. He’s fast and furious. He helped me write a crashed tour bus full of smuggled produce off as a business expense.
