Dave Disco D Shayman

This news hit me pretty hard. I remembering hearing about Disco D when I was first getting into booty. Ever since then it seemed like everyplace I wanted to go he had already been. From ghetto tech to international tracks, founding labels and DJing worldwide. He even had a hand in the mainstream game. Truly an innovator on every level, under and above ground. Picture above posted with an interview he did with Laron Cue. In his own words...

"Part of the problem in music in general is people genre-fy too much. To me Ghettotech was always about drawing from whatever and not giving a fuck. That's why I can produce a 137 bpm record for Sara Stokes that has a commodores sample and can mix with 2 Live Crew or stuff in that range, or co-produce a song like "Turnin' Me On" for Nina Sky...I write music with feeling and emotion in mind, not with genres. We only had to put the name Ghettotech behind what I was doing before for marketing purposes at the time."

Now I know that's right. Memorials have poured out across the web and I'm sure will take musical form in due time. I'm trying to put together clean D tracks for this week's show so tune in if you'd like to catch that. Here's a video of D doing what he loved.

Last week's playlist here. The live Drumcorps track that hit in the late night hours is available for download at Goatlab. A little harder then my usual flavor but when he rocks those marching band samples it's way hype.

Shout out and thanks to Kevin aka Lone Wolf for hooking up a screening of the DJ Screw documentary at Video Underground this past Thursday (peep the Pheonix write up). He also opened my eyes to the world of chopped and screwed videos being made by slow fans world wide. Kind of makes Boyonce seem a little manish but the beat still bangs. Here's to more events promoting the dirty dirty.

See you Wednesday night, same time and place for the spring schedule. Word.
