NEW MIX: DEVIL’S PIE SOUL PRESENTS PHARRELL TRIBUTE MIX – Mixed by RHETTMATIC

It’s been a minute since I posted up on our blog….I figured it’s a special reason to…lol.

In keeping up the tradition of giving the gift of music in honor of my birthday today (May 10), I’m releasing a mix that was originally intended for my friends Dj Sean O & Dj Phatrick, who throw a monthly event in Los Angeles called “Devil’s Pie Soul”, which is held currently at Lock N Key in Koreatown. The basis of their parties are usually built around the theme of paying tributes to musical artists.

Last month, the guys asked me to DJ their event and it was my first time spinning at Devil’s Pie. They asked me if I wanted to do a set that’s dedicated to Pharrell & the Neptunes and I said I was with it. We tried to record the mix live that night but for whatever reason, we technical difficulties in the first 15 minutes into my set. I actually like what I put together that night, so I decided to take the same songs I played that night and kinda re-created my set…..so here’s the mix that was inspired from that night. Pharrell & the Neptunes have such an extensive catalogue, that it was impossible to fit everything on my mix…but I am hyped that I included the Clipse‘s first actual single “The Funeral” in the mix….that’s my sh*t!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the mix….and this is my thank you to everyone that have supported me, my music career, & my crews & affiliations. Thank you as always….Salute.

Next Friday (2/20/15) is the Wedding Mixer 2 Dance Party that I’m doing in conjuction with Footlong Development at The Echo in Los Angeles, with my man, the legendary Mad Skillz. This week, the official follow up to my Wedding Mixer Vol. 2 mix came out this week: Volume 2.5 on a Cassette Mixtape….yes, a Cassette Mixtape! The good peoples at Fat Beats was kind enough to press up a limited amount of the mixtape….this is for the real tape collectors. You can purchase them at Fat Beats: http://www.fatbeats.com/products/rhettmatic-the-wedding-mixer-2-5-cassette or you can purchase them at the event.

But don’t fret, in honor of the mixtape & the dance party next week, here’s is a FREE DL of Side A of Volume 2.5. On this particular volume, I get down on some of the stuff I grew up in the 80’s, Electro Hip Hop, Latin Freestyle/Dance Music & Miami Bass Music….basically I did an “Aqua Net” set. Hopefully this mix brings back memories of Hair Spray, Baggy Pants, Members Only jackets, etc. Hope you like what you hear….I’m definitely going to play some of these gems next week. Hope to see y’all there!

NEW MIX: DJ NU-MARK “CRAFT SERVICES” (JURASSIC 5 VS THE PHARCYDE)

Our good friend Uncle Nu aka Jurassic 5‘s Dj Numark dropped this new mix called “Craft Services” via The Source. S/O to the homie Sarah Honda

“Seeing that I just completed the Slimkid3 & Nu-Mark collaboration, I thought it was appropriate to assemble a mix that highlights both Jurassic 5 and Pharcyde at their best. I dug deep in the vaults and uncovered some never before heard multi tracks, unreleased songs and acapellas from old tapes that needed to see the light of day. This is how I’d like to see all 8 MCs from both groups trade the mic.”
