DJ D-Mac & Associates are back with the rinkside beats every Thursday, December 5th thru February 27th, at the skating rink in the Sculpture Garden at the National Gallery of Art!
Lately I’ve been digging the sampledelic electro-soul of Ageless. All vintage soul samples, heavy ghetto funk-style beats, and glitchy bass.
“Walk Out To Winter” by Aztec Camera is a wonderfully jangly song that pops in my head around this time every winter.
There’s no denying the Phil Spector influence on Wizzard’s “Rock’n'Roll Winter (Looney’s Tune)”; the song is catchy like the flu, the sound is absolutely huge, and the lyrics are pure nostalgia for the innocence of youth. Amazing.
There are a few go-to Christmas tunes I dig that get me a lot of questioning faces; Wham!’s “Last Christmas” is one of them.
Gigamesh has the magic touch so far as I’m concerned with remixing classics. His most recent is his touch on Talking Heads 80′s anthem ”Once In A Lifetime.”
DJH2‘s trap remix of Kanye West’s latest meltdown may officially be song of the year.
Today is the second to last day of Hanukkah. So, in celebration the song of the day is, Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song.”
Ricky Wellman, a massive talent who sadly died recently, was only 13 when played drums on The Jaquars “Crazy Thing” in 1968.
