Somebody get us a full scan!


The first non festival tourdate was Richmond with some of my favorite dudes, the Audio Ammo crew. Right as I got into the city I realized that they had put me in a hotel next to a Sheetz. For those of you who dont know what Sheetz is, it basically has one of the most entertaining ways for a drunk person to order food, via touchscreen.

Afterword the bonuses keep piling up when I find out Alex has gotten me the 4 Magic: The Gathering booster parks that I have on my rider:

and then he takes us to one of the best dinners I’ve had a promoter take me to, where not only did they make the best dirty vodka martini I’ve ever had, but had an amazing cheeseplate (fuck you thats important). The party itself was fun, I ended up drinking beer out of a pitcher and playing hardstyle at the end:

Totally missed out on taking photos at the Confederate Whitehouse but did manage to find this little gem on the road:

keep your eyes peeled on this site for some cameos of the killer rebel swag I picked up here, I have a feeling it’ll go over well at my next gig this thursday in Mississippi.


DEATHFACE – “BLOODRAVE” from Trouble & Bass on Vimeo.

Thanks to CMJ for premiering it here



Some people cant wait for SXSW so they can see their favorite and up and coming bands/djs/producers in an intimate venue.  Those people are idiots, I cant wait for SXSW so I can go nuts on the best beef brisket I’ve ever had in my life.  Some people may disagree with me but I’ve eaten at Rudy’s atleast a dozen times, and at different locations mind you, and everytime the brisket is the same, FUCKING AMAZING.  Its so good I came here twice, the Nashville don Myrryrs even remarked that it was the best brisket hes had in his life (this makes up for him DJing for Ke$ha).



Now for the music, I got into Austin later than most of my friends (Friday) but was picked up by local man about town King Louie.  Myself and a good chunk of the T&B folks were supposed to play the Lose Control afterparty but it was shut down, which most of us didnt mind because it meant we could go support Drop the Lime at the Fools Gold afterparty that was in a MALL!   Heres a vid of Dracula the Lime dropping my new single BLOODRAVE at said party (nextdoor to a Wet Seal)





I ended up passing out on the couch at the Trouble & Bass frathouse and was awoken at 10am by Drop the Lime coming back from Starbucks with coffee and brownies for everyone and getting us outside to bash this pinata to amp us up for the raging that was to come:

Party started at noon and went til 7pm, so inevitably there was a lunchbreak, which provided this sweet photo op:



I was then given the coveted closing spot from 6:15pm to 7pm to close the party out, I can easily say it was one of the best shows of my life, heres some vids:



Check out that fucking pit!

What? You dont close your sets with bro hymn tribute? You’re fucking up!
Later that night I decided to tag along with the aforementioned King Louie to his Peligrosa party he does with the dude with the manliest beard DJ Orion at Franks. I’d seen Jubilee twittering about the party before and they had some pretty heavy hitters lined up to DJ (Dave Nada, Brodinski, Toy Selectah, Samo Soundboy, Brenmar etc) but holy shit was I not prepared for this party, first DJ I saw was a guy named DJ Dus who was STRAIGHT KILLING it with cumbia jams that had the 80% crowd of girls dancing. I also got to heard 3ball (or as Jillionaire likes to call it “Donkey Music”) out (man I’m late to that game) which I have to say I’m addicted to now. Best part about it is that while it is considered one of the new “hip ethnic” genres, the original following of Mexicans from Monterrey rock boots like these when they go listen to it in the club:

LOOK AT THOSE FUCKING BOOTS! And those things on his legs are lights powered by a battery pack in his pocket! So bonkers!
Next day I got to play the Smog party at 222 Club

Got stuck playing early due to the lineup being fucking bonkers but it gave me the opportunity to play jams like this one:

FUCKING TUNE, big ups to Numbernin6 for sorting me with that one, all you kids who think dubstep is only midrange aggression need to get to the roots and know that the shit is about being DARK and SUB BASS!
Didnt get many more photos due to being distracted by the amount of free whiskey shots we were able to finangle but AC Slater + Dell and Flinch were both SUPERB, I did also manage to get a photo of these broads getting MARKED backstage.

Big ups to Smog + Mad Classy crew for the big party!

Ultra Recap 2

Saturday night I got to finally go to the Overthrow Castle for this legendary party, I got there as my Sound Pellegrino fam was dropping hits and exclusives.  I got a pretty amazing timeslot right after Bart B More (who is a real nice dude, whats the deal with these Dutch guys being so chill, I’ll let you come up with your own theories) but got pitted against Samo Sound Boy (another dude who is killing it) who was playing the side room, needless to say as soon as I was done I ran straight over and danced to the last few minutes of his set.  Everyone who played totally killed it especially the final B. Rich + Udachi tag team where I’m pretty sure they only played their own tunes, SO BIG, those dudes are the absolute best.  Overall the party was awesome and I ended up drinking too much tequila and Prometheus Springs cocktails (big ups to Overthrow for having such great hospitality).


Next day I went over to the Catalina hotel to play for bass queen Reid Speed’s Play Me Pool Party.  I got there to find out that someone was playing too hard too early so they had to move the party to the lobby inside, where I found Udachi tagteaming with Canblaster (!!!).   I took this opportunity to play some shit I dont get to normally play (cumbia), found a throne, grabbed a mojito, and watched the hot latinas that worked at the hotel groove around.


Overall Miami was great, big thanks to my Trouble & Bass brothers and sisters, Smog crew especially Drew the Don, Overthrow fam, Johnny the Boy, and Reid Speed for letting me play their parties and take advantage of their hospitality.


Ultra Recap Part 1

Ultra week (and SXSW in Austin) in miami is a big excuse for DJs to get drunk with each other and let each other know how much we miss each other and love each others music.  Right?  Whatever, got into Miami on Thursday went straight to The Standard and saw too many of my old friends to mention, then I got to play this complete fucking rager of a party:


I gotta say, I didnt see most of the headliners in the main room play due to the overabundance of sweaty bros but amongst the people that I got to see kill it were: Jubilee, Supra1, XI, Untold, Roska, Flinch, and Dave Nada.   Friday we got to spend the day at a mansion party on one of the Venetian islands that is the first photo of this post, where I got a free haircut

then ran into Orgasmic, who around 3 years ago thought he cut my finger off by slamming it in a car door, footage of which can be found in the Institubes 2008 US tour video which is here:

still got all my fingers and he still has the sweetest ponytail in dance music.

Also heres a video of Turtle dancing during Brodinski’s set, cameos by Zombies for Money and Jerome from LOLboys
