We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy! The whole fam was in effect, with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo, Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and more performing in front of a few thousand of LA’s finest party people. And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!

Check the recap video above, and check some photos from the Cobrasnake (two galleries!), Shadowscene, Say Cheese And Die, The Source, Shout out to Adidas, Scion, iheartcomix, The Well, the Shrine Auditorium and everyone else who came together to make the first DAY OFF LA so fun!

Remembering DJ Mehdi

Posted on Sep 19th, 2011

From Dave1′s Facebook post…

I wrote this text on the plane back from Paris a couple of days ago. I first intended it to be a series of personal notes: an attempt to retrace the chronology of our friendship with Mehdi. Then I figured I’d share it. It’s long and perhaps too full of factoids. But that’s how Mehdi, ever the raconteur, like his stories: starting “ab ovo” (from the very beginning, the origins) and rife with trivia. So here it is, my own personal Mehdipedia entry… Read More

Fool's Gold Day Off Returns To NYC!

Posted on Aug 23rd, 2011

Back! Back in a New York groove!

The thousands of people who attended our Day Off party last year (or saw the footage immortalized in Duck Sauce’s smash “Barbra Streisand” video) spent an afternoon living it up with the country’s most fun MCs and DJs, eating hamburgers in one hand and catching a crowd-surfing Yelawolf in the other.
