J. Jonah and George Kush on Mofo.
J. Jonah Jameson and George Kush were good enough to role through last week's edition of Mofo Radio. They dropped some hip hop funk soul psychedelia favorites from their crates. Hit up the links below to download their sets. Some tech issues in the mix, crazy banter in between, but overall all good tunes and warm vinyl goodness.

And remember to check out Jonah and George weekly on The Sunday Night Shakedown
Big ups again to the Flavorheard
for helping me out Saturday night at the Harvard party at The Advocate
house. Everyone was getting down pretty hard and it got kinda crazy. Couldn't have done it without those guys. Check out some pics here
. You might notice some of the previously mentioned names regulating, as well as my party starting friends who are always down for a good time. Shouts to everyone.
Same mofo time and place tomorrow. Some new mp3's in the mail to play for yall. Hit it up tomorrow night at 10. See you,

Who Knows, tomorrow night (God willing)
No show last week so no playlists
to holler about. Here's the weekend update:
Friday night Thunderdome
with Drop the Lime's party crew Trouble and Bass
brought some serious club/rave sounds. Mistaker
holding it down as well double room party style.
As if that wasn't enough, Baltimoroder
blows up the scene again Saturday night at the Second Gallery
benefit. Props to Joseph Colbourne
, Lone Wolf
, and Red Foxxworth
for also making that a fun night. Hopefully Second Gallery bankrolled on it!
As for tomorrow night, same Mofo
time and place, but this week with long awaited special guests J. Jonah Jameson
(aka Who Knows
) and George Kush
! These guys have been DJing
all over the Boston underground and are bringing their music topside hosting their own radio program, Sunday Night Shakedown
, on legendary hip hop heavyweight WRBB 104.9
. They'll be joining us with a taste of what they're bringing to the radio table as well as some solo beats and rhymes they've been working on the side. Not to be missed! I'll say god willing, cuz
these guys have flaked on me a few times, but I think we've got our contacts straightened out so this will be it.
I'll be DJing
another party for The Advocate over at Harvard this Saturday. Email me for details on that. Should be another rager
That's all I wanted to mention. Gettin
to it tomorrow night!

Valentine's week off.
BC Basketball put me out this week, and given the weather I'm kinda glad for it. Sorry to miss yall but it was good to catch up on my new job at WGBH
(also responsible for late post slackage). Peep out this week's playlist.
Bhangra tracks (2nv, DJ Wanted) come recommended by Mr. Singh, aka The Mixtape Maharaja
. He's got zshare knowledge dropped all over the place with only a taste on his myspace page (warning; he's also a soca worrior, not that there's anything wrong with that).
Can't get off this new M.I.A. track. The video
is a must watch.
Can't get off this Tony Ronald track either. Who? Here it is.
Spanish version of Summertime and he's killing it! From the compilation Sensational Soul
Really dig what Vampisoul have going on right now, some of the more interesting dug up funk/soul comps I've heard.
Quick shameless plug for this remix I did of Porcelain played at 45. Was just messing around at first but it came out kind of nice. Check it here
And lastly some hollers for the weekend. Promise
(give generously) on Saturday night competing with Flavorheard
at Enormous Room. Decisions decisions. Weather may be a factor. See me next Wednesday. Peace easy,

Rndm Robot Chrome
Let me commend DJ Rndm
for throwing down an awesome set at a great event put on by U.V. Protection
this past Saturday night at Art Interactive
. A seamless audio and video mix on 3 giant video walls! Had I known the details of this show sooner, I would have posted it here but I've got to take a minute to look back. Speaking of looking back, last weeks playlist
Tracks from Chrome Children 2 at the top of last week's show. Best part is the album is free and most likely wont be mistaken for terrorism. In conjunction
with Stones Throw
, now available on the Adult Swim website
Herve's Trevor Lovey remix
comes well recommended
from newly found music blogger Elizabeth. She's no stranger to blogging
, or music, but her mastery of both have only recently culminated
in Home Taping
. One to stay on top of for sure.
Before I forget there's Roller Disco
happening Thursday. I'm debating heading out depending on the cold. Given it's local there's probably some walking to be done in getting there. Also in a week and a half is Promise
, supporting one of the much needed alternative gallery spaces in Boston. That one's a must.Mofo
at the same time tomorrow. Just me and the stax
this week. On the 14th
I was planning to have some ladies in the studio, not for my own benefit but for a V day ladies room get down (or something) but it looks like there's BC basketball to be played so you'll have to get smooth on your honey without Mofo
in the background. Still catch me tomorrow and then two weeks from then. I'll be in touch. Peace.
