Happy Record Store Day

Mdeck : April 20, 2013 2:10 pm : blog posts

Happy Record Store Day! Although I feel we should support record and music stores all year and not just one day of the year..I appreciate that there is a day dedicated to record stores. Records are the arsenal of a good DJ or Producer and you would be hard pressed to find one that is successful and hasn’t spent hours sifting through wax in a dusty, cluttered record store. Going through old music is a journey in itself, the music that passes through your ears, the crazy cover art you find and the people you meet during the quest for the perfect dig.

This video really embodies the true digger to me. Oxygen kills it and really breaks down the habits of diggin. Some dope drum breaks in the track produced by Gensu Dean as well as some video cameos by digging legends like Breakbeat Lou, DJ Forrest Getemgump, DJ Spinna, Amir..all filmed during the final days of the legendary Big City Records NYC before it closed. It’s sad to see great records stores like Big City close up, so hopefully we can remind ourselves that if we don’t support these businesses all year they won’t always be around.


Also big shout out to companies like Massachusetts’s own Get On Down who have been reissuing all sorts of great records with creative and interesting twists to keep it fresh!! READ NY TIMES ARTICLE HERE

Funky Soul Supreme Part 2 – 45 Mix – DJ Mdeck

Mdeck : September 11, 2012 11:13 am : Mixes

 

Once again I’m sharing my love for funk 45s, with Funky Soul Supreme Vol. 2. Classic, rare and obscure funk 45s  compiled into a 60 minute mix. Gritty horns, funky drums, basslines.. for people who appreciate real bad ass music, late 60s-70s, deep funky soul that will never go out of style.  You just can’t duplicate the feeling you get from records like these.

Official Break Yo’self 4 Mixtape

Mdeck : June 2, 2012 1:16 am : Mixes

Recently some supporters from Border Youth collective hit us up about the Break Yo’ Self Annual Graffiti and Art Show Benefit event down in El Paso, Texas June 15-17. Some really dope writers and artist get together for this event every year, and proceeds will benefit the homeless and people in need through the El Paso Rescue Mission. We like to give back to those who support us and we are always down for a good cause! Their motto this year is fitting as “Shaking Cans With Helping Hands”.

Although we won’t be in attendance, we put together this mix for them, a hype selection of 90s and 2000s underground tracks. Check it out.

Crate Diggers Interviews

Mdeck : May 30, 2012 5:52 pm : blog posts

I feel the need to share this for all my fellow record fans and crate diggers. There is an art to building a record collection, and it’s truly the foundation of a good producer or DJ for so many reasons. Fuse TV has a great series called “Crate Digger” with some dope interviews and a peek at some legendary record stashes. Check the videos below for some music knowledge and inspiration. Never stop diggin!
