Booker vs BlaQwest - Pick Of The Week

Picks for the week of August 18th 2008
Booker -
Hostage - Rooted
Hostage is steadily becoming one of my favorite producers.. He's prolific and knows how to integrate different types of sounds and samples into his tracks. This track as always from him - is bangin'!!!
BlaQwest -
Soul Grabber - Motocross Madness (Bart B More Remix)
Nice remix here from Bart B More. This track rolls along nicely dropping in and out here and there. Sounds like he's just playing around and having fun. Love it!
By the way, keep a lookout for some new tracks from us really soon. We're in the studio cooking up some fiyah for ya!

Helsinki In The House!!

There is a DJ out in Helsinki, Finland that is Anonymous. I don't know him personally but let me tell you, there are several people who I know of that really know their shit when talking about Old School Funk and Disco shit (B.Cause, The Oakland Faders, Eli Escobar & my dj partner, Booker to name a few).

I add to this list DJ Anonymous.

If you don't know him, check out his blog... Can you say ON FIRE?! Everytime I go to his blog it reminds me of the good old days of Funk, Soul, House and Classic Hip Hop. And he just doesn't deal with those formats. Like any great DJ/music lover he crosses over into Dancehall/Reggae, Top 40 and Remixes. He has some of his own original productions/remixes on his blog as well. Do yourself a huge favor and pop on over there and get to listening. In the meantime, here is an edit he sent to us of the classic 1989 track "I Like It (Blow Out Dub)" by Landlord that I'm feeling all over again. Old School Baby! You gotta love it!

Booker vs BlaQwest - Pick Of The Week

For the week of August 4th
Booker -
Larry Tee - I Love You (Bart B More Remix)
Well we're back again with another week of our picks. And well mine - mine is a straight stomper! Nuff' said.
BlaQwest -
Radiohead - Videotape (Man Make Remix)
Ok. I went a little crazy this week. I'm a little on the minimal tip. This is a nice remix of Radiohead's song. This remix has got that nice mellow feeling to just chill to.
And I've got a bonus for you...Not too minimal, just really nice. Amp Live's (of Zion I) remix of the same song featuring Del the Funky Homosapien. I really like both of these.
Video Tapez - Amp Live ft. Del the Funky Homosapien
And now a Double Bonus on the minimal tip! An oldie but goodie. This song goes straight to my heart!
Justin Martin - The Sad Piano (Jimpster Remix)
