Invaders El Segundo

Playlists from last night and last week are up. Wanted to shout on the live scene real quick:

Nick and I will be holding down the second installment of Bass Invaders amongst Red Sox madness tomorrow night. This month with special guest DJ Teep! Here's the write up:

"This month's special guest is none other then The Prime Minister, DJ Teep!!! A QE2 crew affiliate, DJ Teep has rocked the Boston underground for years, from every Cambridge venue you can think of to underground house parties you wish you were at. Alls been quiet on the venue front for Teep lately but he's been podcasting and posting tracks right under our noses! Be sure to check out all the media at Teep's And don't miss this special guest appearance!"

That's tonight at The Milky Way in JP. For my Northeastern kin I'll be DJing a little Halloween get down in support of the ladies of NU's Feminist Student Organization. Move those stereotypes aside, these women are trying to have fun! It all goes down at the infamous Afterhours. NU ID gets you a plus one. Smart looking flyer is floating around:

And on All Hallows Eve, I'll be back on the air, probably all spooked out at that point so I think I'll make it my goal to kill Halloween. Won't you join me?

Balkan Reggaeton

Now that I've gotten the buzzword title out of the way, I'll reveal my sources on a few of the Balkan inspired jams I've picked up lately. These tracks have mixed in surprisingly well on air and in the club.

The first is a DJ Kozi blend with a reggaeton beat over it. I'm more partial to the Trubaci (brass) stuff for some reason cuz it's crazy hype. This and other remixes available at

Trubaci Cik Cik (Reggaeton Remix)

And here's a house edit of a song by the Mahala Rai Band. The original bumps on it's own, but the beat here gives it just a bit more backbone for the dance floor. You would have heard both on the program these last couple weeks though. You can find it on a CD called Gypsy Beats and Balkan Bangers out on the Basement Jaxx label.

Mahalageasca Felix B Jazzhouse Dub

Cambridge got a taste of a few Balkan jams as well when Honk Fest (pic above) went down a few weeks ago. It was a crazy time with lots of great bands playing all sorts of Klezmer, hip-hop, New Orleans, and even Afrobeat jams! The What Cheer? Brigade particularly brought the house down and journeyed only as far as from Providence! Hopefully this means they'll be back again real soon. Lord knows it's a shorter trip then their previous excursions to lands as far as Serbia for the Festival of Trumpeters at Guca. Guca is known as about the largest, loudest, and drunkenest brass band gathering in the world and from the movie trailers alone it seems to live up to the hype. This doc due out on DVD here hopefully soon:

Alright I think I got that out of my system. Join me on air tonight. Max from Cert. Bananas in town again for a Milky Way gig Thurs. I'll be at Harvard playing Sat, and then a Halloween get down at Northeastern sometime after that. Busy times!

sweeping across the Sahara

Music on Sublime Frequencies in last week's show. In particular from Group Inerane, the "now sound of the Tuareg Guitar Revolution sweeping across the Sahara Desert." They developed this political brand electric guitar music in Libyan Refugee camps. It's the electric guitars matched with traditional rhythms that take this to the next level for me. We're pretty head over heals for it all over the station as well as I think this has been getting a lot of spins! Check out this video to see the real deal. Sadly the DVD is sold out.

We'll inevedibally hear more from that in tomorrow's show. More Balkan stuff as well (mostly remixed) as I delve further into my guilty pleasure of brass bands and making this completely a world music show. Balkan reggaeton mixes worked suprisingly well in the club the other night though...

And speaking of, thanks to everyone who came out to the Milky Way last Thurs. Another jump off this Thursday as Chrish Devlin and co Shake em Down. Devlin on the mix is sure to be correct. Spank Rock is also gonna be there keeping the mic correct. And I'll be there keeping the speakers correct so come see what these Milky Way Thursdays are about if you haven't already! Catch you tomorrow night in the meantime.
