Here’s a fun back-to-back set with Groove Thang host, DJRS3 from Chicago, showcasing some of our Transformers collection while DJing.

Was too busy during the past month to fit in my weekly streams, so I had to take a break. Felt good to finally play again. All Busta Rhymes for this one. He has so many hits and bangers from his early days of Leaders Of The New School, solo albums, to countless collabs with…

Just another night of randomness.

Chat Room Get Down: Ep. 28 | All Vinyl Crate Challenge

Open format night, all wax, with a twist. I decided to throw in some new channel point redemptions where viewers can use their points to redeem a “crate challenge” and choose one of the record shelves for me to randomly play from.

Music Video Mix Show Theater 5000: Ep. 34 | Everything Animated

One of the things I like about doing the MVMST5k streams is that I also get to enjoy watching the music videos with you all. I’ve always been intrigued by music videos that feature all animated, cg, or puppets/animatronics. The amount of time it takes to produce these have a different kind of effort and…

Everything Boom Bap Hip‑Hop. From East to West Coast classic and 2000’s to now. Steady 90’s range BPMs for the chill and headnod type of grooves.

Music Video Mix Show Theater 5000: Ep. 30 | All Michael Jackson, Jackson 5, + Related (4 hr set)

This episode features an all MJ music video tribute. Tried my best to stick to only playing songs that had an official music video or performance recording, but his discography has so many great songs, there were some that I just couldn’t leave out, so I just used some video loops as an added visual…

80s‑90s Boom Bap Hip‑Hop (MV Set | 10.7.20)

Since COVID started, I’ve been fiddling around with different streaming platforms to play out music. Everything being online seems more reliant on visuals so I’m currently trying Serato Video, and it’s pretty fun to use. Kind of like mixing and video editing live (but using turntables to control the videos). Doing these sets live on…

GroovMekanex Members Jaypee Diaz & Dennis Infante in Official “Callin’ Out” Music Video, by Lyrics Born

I still remember getting doubles of Callin’ Out 12”’s during the days of Hot Buttered Soul Sundays at the Cardiff Lounge. I never thought I’d one day meet Lyrics Born years and years later and even be in a music video for the same song, with my GroovMekanex brother, the funky Jaypee Diaz. It was…
