Aloe Blacc – Need A Dollar (video)

Respect due to Sake and the PST crew, I give you Aloe Blacc’s video of “Need A Dollar”. Shot live from one of LA’s best parties, The Do Over. Sake 1 on the decks. Cameos of a lot of dope DJs as well. Love the song and I think the vid fits the vibe. Props to Adidas for the footage. Speaking of Adidas, the Boba Fetts dropped today.

DJ Franchise – Live Set from PST (7.23.10)

A live set recorded at one of the Bay Area’s greatest parties, PST Live! at YoshiSF. Resident Sake1 invited me for a guest spot on July 23, 2010. He basically said play “sexy soul, you know what to do” and what you hear is the result. Proud of this mix and the people loved it, too.  Your comments and feedback are always appreciated.

Haiti Benefit – Bay Area – 2nite!

Tonight at 330 Ritch, there will be a MAJOR event going to help benefit the families of Haiti.  I am really proud of the h-hop culture, particularly DJs, that have come together for this cause.  I threw my own event last Sunday to raise some money but its real cool to see ppl unifying forces to get action going.  Sake1 says better than I could so listen:

“We are all struggling to do our part for tha people of Haiti, who suffered a catastrophic earthquake last week, one that may leave as many as 200,000 people dead and countless more at risk of disease, homelessnes, and trauma.

Please join us in our humble efforts to raise needed funds here in tha Bay Area, this week and into tha future. This is a long-term committment yall — it will take YEARS for Haiti to recover and rebuild, and they will need our support and solidarity through that process. Tha era of tha US neglecting and isolating Haiti is now over — if our government won’t help Haiti’s people, its up to US.”

If you are in the Bay Area, another event will be held at the Shattuck Downlow in Berkele, Supported by Angel Magik, Ankh Marketing, Tastemaker Live, Local 1200, Dee Cee’s Soul Shakedown, Shattuck Down Low, Fiyawata Crew, featuring DJ sets by DJ MPENZi, DJ SERG, DJ I ALEXIS, DJ JAH YZER, DJ CONSHUS and emceed by PHIFE from A TRIBE CALLED QUEST.

Jay Electronica – Exhibit C (Sake1 Edit)

Best song of 2009. Period.  Possibly within all of music I heard this year. Seriously.  If you don’t know, no hard feelings.  This is time for you to catch up.  If you do know, buy yourself an extra gift for X-mas.  You deserve it.  Friend and DJ, Sake1, made an edit for fellow song selectors that gives you an 8 bar intro and little faster BPM.  You can download the edit, but support real hip-hop and go to Itunes and buy it! Really. I am gonna stop talking and let you experience some greatness before the end of the 2009.

Wale – Live at PST (SF)

DMV’s own, Wale, came through San Francisco to perform a special set at the Bay Area’s best and most progressive hip-hop night, PST – shout out to Sake1!  He ran through as many as songs as he could in the time he was on stage.  Favorites were Artistic Integrity, Elevator, Chillin, and WALEDANCE. His stage presence was dope despite the fact that he had “been climbing trees”.  While Drake has the buzz, I can see Wale being a champion MC for a long time to come.  I appreciated his shout to me with my Dodgers hat and all the LA peeps despite being in the Bay. Enjoy the FULL set. SHout out to Sake1, No, BMUSE, and FiyahLilly who were in the place. I’ll work harder on soldifying that interview next time.
