The House Mix!

The whole purpose of this month mix marathon is to showcase the different styles of music that I get down with. A lot of people get confused when I play top 40, House, or dubstep (because of my background in Rap/R&B) at my live gigs and they are confused because they just don't know my musical depth, I really don't think there is a genre of music that I totally dislike.

Its About Time

 Anyone who knows me knows that besides gone in 60 seconds that Back to the Future II is one of my favorite movies of all time and my 2nd dream car besides a 67 fastback mustang is a Delorean DMC-12. The movie had a major impact in my life and creativity, (one of the reasons why I started skateboarding). The Nike Mags from the movie have been recreated by Nike (no they dont tie themselves lol) and are auctioning on ebay (only about 1500 were made) all proceeds go the Michael J Fox Fund for research and treatment of Parkinsons disease... so dope.... so dope mos def will own a Deleorean one day.

Michael J Fox is a hero to many and I appreacite Nike for reaching out to him and his foundation in a purely unselfish way, wish more things like this happened.

Until Next Time

Getting Your Song Played at the Party

How to NOT Get Your Song Played

1.Tell the DJ your about to leave in 3 minutes and he or she has to play your song right now

2. Just because its your friends birthday dosn't mean the DJ is going to now play I can show the world from Aladdin

3. Asking the DJ for songs while he is mixing

4. Asking the DJ to play a song 7 -10 times in a night, the more times you ask the less chance that he or she is going to play it

5. Asking for a song while waving your drink over their equipment... not only are you not getting your song you also might die

6. Touching the DJ's laptop without permission (refer to last part of # 5)

7. Cursing out the DJ

8. Asking for music that only you want to hear

9. Stand all night by the DJ booth and request songs that nobody knows about but you and your friends

I could go all day on another ways to not get your song played but it really comes down to one thing, treat the DJ with respect and you will get the same back. Alot of people dont seem to realize this fact but DJing is a job, it takes alot of time and energy to become a decent DJ and have the ability to entertain multiple groups of people at the same time.

How To Get Your Song Played

1. Ask for a song that fits in the same genre or vibe that DJ is currently playing in

2. When the DJ does play your song actually go dance, dont stand by the booth with the next song you want on your lips

3. Acknowledge that the DJ is a person, you can do this by saying hello, or how are you doing

4. Please and thank you are very powerful words... use them

5. Last and definitely not least enjoy yourself! Trust me the DJ is less likely to play your song if you are a downer

Thank you for reading my little tutorial on getting your song played at the party, this is all my honest opinion and while I cannot guarantee that these rules will get your song played every time your chances will mos def greatly improve.. try it!

This has been a PSA from B Rab Productions, more will be released when it is again deemed necessary

Thank you
