Chat Room Get Down: Ep. 25 | HBD Hip‑Hop! Golden Era, Boom Bap + Classic Breaks

Had a lot of fun with this set. Hip-Hop and Breaks are probably my favorite genres to play because there is so much you can do to cut up songs, loop breaks, and trick mix along the way. I love and embrace the new technology in DJing nowadays, but there’s something about using just the…

Chat Room Get Down: Ep.13 | All Prince + Related Artists Show

It’s crazy that it’s already been 5 years since Prince passed away. The show fell on the night as his death anniversary so I decided to do a little Prince tribute during the stream. A little more focused on his dance tracks and geared towards what street dancers would typically get down to. Hits, lesser…
