I’ve been attending mastering sessions for the Kid Sister album in London… but somehow finishing songs at the same time. We had 3 different engineers mix one song once the mastering had already started. Kinda crazy. Anyway, been consumed by this Dream Date CD, as evidenced by my beard.
One song left to master! (That one.)
It’s late. Back to work.
Oh and this album is nuts.

You’re gonna have to use your imagination to picture this story, just like in the olden days. But you know what? It’s kind of doper that I didn’t have a camera. I’m gonna talk about this BBQ that I went to at Haze’s house earlier in the week. Haze, the OG of this graphic design shit. So ill!!! WARNING: THIS BLOG IS LONGER THAN IT SEEMS. Read More

My publicist set up a feature for me this week and she later admitted being scared that I would mail her an anthrax letter. I should really send her flowers instead. Why did she think I wouldn’t like this? I just spent an afternoon with a Playboy playmate. To be specific, Kelly Carrington, Miss October. Read More

BlackBook ran a cool little feature on me in the context of the Running Man record. Check it out here.
It’s funny to me that they used that picture. That pic was taken at a gifting suite at Winter Music Conference a year and a half ago. This rep from a headphone company was like “hey we’re gonna give you some headphones, can we get a picture of you with them?” and that was supposed to be the end of that. Why would someone think it’s a press photo? Am I supposed to be like “hey I’m a DJ so I walk around with headphones around my neck, even when I walk the dog!”
I don’t have a dog but you see what I mean.

I don’t even know what time zone I’m in anymore. I just know I have a couple of pictures from last weekend that I wanted to post, so that warrants a blog post. Read More

Right around when A-Trak’s Running Man mix for Nike+ first dropped, he went to the Nike ID studios with our art director Dust La Rock and our pal Kesh to test out some colorways. Now you can put the fruits of their afternoon on your feet by winning these Nike ID dunks!
We have 5 pairs to give away, all you have to do is email us your name, shoe size, shipping address (no PO boxes, you gotta be able to sign for these) and phone number, and we’ll choose winners at random next week.
UPDATE: Almost 1,000 entries in a weekend, not too shabby! Congratulations to Erin McCulley of St Petersburg, Keena Carson of Newport News, Ronald Moore Jr of the Bronx, Dean Bryce of London, and Yan Philippe of Montreal!

I meant to post this 24 hours ago but internet access is like the Holy Grail when you’re on the road.
I landed in London after the classic yet dreaded overnight flight. I had a bad case of the Middle Seat Blues but I did manage to get 2 or 3 hours of sleep in there. As we took off I was starving and really looking forward to my meal. I was in the second-to-last row though so I knew I’d have to twiddle my thumbs for a hot minute. Then the guy on my left got his meal before everyone. He had one of those “special” orders. I was thinking, I’m going to start asking for kosher meals when I book these flights. Most of you know that I’m Jewish, but I eat everything, I don’t really care. However if this will allow me to eat before everyone else, sign me up! Bring on the airplane latkes, baby. Those meals are probably better anyway since they make less of them.

This picture comes to us directly from our very own Daniel LeDisko, spotted on a train in Norway. What’s on in Oslo? Me, that’s what. Umm, wrong, unfortunately. I had to cancel my Scandinavian dates about 2 weeks ago. Sorry! I guess no one informed the railway service.

A-Trak, JOTS, and a gang of other suspicious characters are teaming up this weekend for the Time Festival in Toronto. Go check em if you’re in the neighborhood.
