DJ GUY INSANITY

A bunch of people had a DJ battle knockout tournament on the dickride.com (RIP) site in 2006, which DJ Guy went on to win. The final round mixes had to be 10 minutes long and mixed live with vinyl on 2 decks.

My advice to you is check out the whole three mixes from the dickride.com battle but here is the winning mix.

THE MADNESS OF DJ GUY


PHREN1-3, originally uploaded by astropop.

So, I downloaded this mix ages ago and I refound it on my hard drive after I went through and was uploading new stuff to lameatnames.com [NSFW]

Those of you who have been following my blog will know that I am a big fan of DJ Guy, and have had the pleasure of his company on many occasions – highlights being playing scrunchie football at Diamond Grills in Paris, get shit faced with him and Bitch Ass Darius at my local etc. The ‘Fired Up Promo Mix‘ is one of my favourite mixes of all time – not only because it contains his own track from the Fired Up EP “Big Pussy” but because it also contains the BANGING TRACK by Bitch Ass Daris G**K Hoes on NES one of the best records of all time and I have gone on about that whole mix a million times before.

Oh so where was I? I feel as giddy as my little nephew Sam who I just spoke to at the Devonport Show after he just got off the GeeWhizzer – he said that it was okay when it was going slow but it went really fast and it freaked him out. But he wasn’t as scared as his dad was.

Okay so feet back down on the ground:

And about now, the fireworks display will be over in Devonport and I’ve spooged all I needed to about DJ Guy. Now all I need is a new mix from Bitch Ass Darius.

THE WORST MIXTAPE EVER

I was just browsing the dickride.com forum for the first time in a while and I came across this post from DJ Guy called DJ TRAINWRECK. I followed the links and came across this beautiful piece of text:

The Worst Mixtape Ever

Back when I lived in Houston I had a radio show on the local college station (KTRU). The show was called “MKUltra”. It was on Friday nights, and I played mostly electronic music. I had a lot of guest djs for the show in those days… local talent like Andrei Morant, Abiel, Chris Anderson & Tim Xavier would often drop by.

Listeners and local scenesters would sometimes mail me their mixes, and sometimes I’d air them. If I really liked it, I would have them come in and do a live set.

In the summer of ‘99 I got a mix in my mailbox at the radio station. It came recorded on a dubbed over dictasette, and was enclosed with a short note. This is one of the worst mixtapes I have ever heard. It is so horrifically bad that I listened to it non-stop that summer.

1999 was a rough year for me. My mom was fighting cancer. My girlfriend had just broken up with me. I hated my job. And I was depressed. But that summer, this mixtape took my mind off all that crap. And it made me think: no matter how bad things got, it couldn’t get any worse than this mix.

They say a good dj is supposed to make you feel things you haven’t felt before. To play music you haven’t heard before. And to hopefully play music in a context that is new. Unexpected. Fresh.

If so, then this may be one of the best mixes I know of. Each time I listen to it I hear things I’ve never heard before. And I feel things I normally don’t feel when I listen to music. Irritation, disgust, mild pain. Occasionally hope (when some mixes appear almost over). Anger (when they come back).

But mostly, this tape clears my mind of all life’s daily clutter. When I’m feeling a little down, I pop this in and jam out. So mad props to you dj Trainwreck. Unfortunately, I never did get you on the show. I moved away from Houston before that could happen. But thanks for the tape. And know that it was definitely heard.

I’ve been meaning to encode this tape for the last 5 years. I finally got around to it, and now I’m sharing it with you.

You can follow this link here and download the mix and listen to it as I am now right at this second as I type.

It is incredulous that Sandeep managed to listen to this mix all the way through, let alone more than once.

And yes, even I am a better DJ than DJ Trainwreck.

P.S. Nadia Kasaiba sent me a mixtape once mentioning in the attached note there were a few train wrecks. There was only one and that was just kind of funny – not at all agonising. I listened to that mixtape frequently while doing housework.

MAD DECENT NICHE MIX

Remember when they used to be called Faggatronix? I don’t any more cause now they roll by their government names, Bok Bok and Manara.

Bok Bok and Manara have done another mix, this time for Mad Decent Worldwide Radio.

01 . intro
02 . DJ MURKZ – datz me
03 . TRC – toybox
04 . CHEEKSTA – baby (T2 remix)
05 . EJ – u.f.o
06 . JTJ – love
07 . DA MIGHTY BLAZE – trojan warrior
08 . TS7 – smile ft TONIA
09 . PALEFACE & FLUKES – salt slugs
10 . DEXPLICIT – lifey
11 . TRC – best things ft SCREAMA
12 . DJ MURKZ – dark and grey
13 . DJ Q – fear
14 . NITRO – its you
15 . DEXPLICIT – might be ft GEMMA FOX
16 . IRONSOUL – you liar
17 . MERKURY – my all
18 . ZOMBY – spliff dub (MR FIGZ remix)

As you all know I think that shit music – I can’t remember what it is even called now – the music at that crap rave in the squat I went to that stunk of onion bhajis and wet toilets – is shit. But as I have discussed previously, I like “niche”. What a stupid effing name. I mean – IDM too. LOL. Niche is like a non-name name where some dude at the record store didn’t know what to call a few records so he put them in the corner and called them niche. I should ask Prancehall if he wasn’t hating on me so much. Surely he knows everything about everything.

Anyway so I listened to the new Bok Bok and Manara mix today while I painted the living room. It certainly made the task a lot more bearable. The mix is great – even if I wasn’t into all the tracks individually. Bok Bok and Manara are my favourite UK DJ’s. DJ Goon and DJ Koyote are my favourite French DJ’s [see BOYZ II MEN video a coupla posts down HA.]

Oh shit – I’m listening to DJ Guy while I type. He is pretty incredible too…
