Hi kids, DSJ here with a somewhat formal introduction to most (but not hardly all) of the producers affiliated with the mighty Brick Bandits Crew; the Brick Bandits Breakout! It's 21 tracks by 21 artists...all killer, no filler from Jersey, Philly and Chicago. It's also a companion piece to the official Brick Bandits EP on Ol' Head/Mad Decent of which you can cop right now on vinyl or digi format from TTL, Juno and itunes. The Breakout! was recorded all the way live on two turntables in one take with no headphones cuz that's how Ol' Heads do. It's a wild ride and clocks in at 43 of the shortest minutes you might ever experience, so don't say you weren't warned when you hit rewind again and again. DJ Stumble on the design and engineering duties as usual cuz he da besssss! Not much more to say at this point...the Brick Bandits invasion has begun and the movement that moves everything ain't stoppin for nothin.

Hey all you Mad Decent followers. Curt from Flosstradamus here. Just giving you the low down on this podcast. The boy Diplo asked us to do a Dancemania pod cast. If you don't know about it Dancemania is a label out of Chicago that started in the mid 80's with some pretty known anthems and artists. It wasn't till the early 90's when the more known names such as: DJ Funk, Paul Johnson, Dj Deeon, etc. were putting out heaters on DM, with ghetto and disco sounds. Within a few years the label put out more songs that you could download in one day off of hype machine. By 2001 they put out the DM 300!! Over 300 songs on a single independent label out of Chicago! Pretty cool if ya ask me?
That being said we had to choose from a nice handful of songs. Also the original approach for this mix tape was "ghetto house" also know as juke, ghetto tech, jit, among others. So we tried to merge a few of our favorite (I'm sure you have a handful too) Dancemania "Ghetto House" tunes with some new & exclusive Ghetto House tunes of today. I hope you like the lil mix we whipped up. The track listing is below. Let us know your favorite Ghetto House jams and Dancemania joints.
Thanks dudes, Have Fun, Keep Smiling, And only you can prevent forest fires.
Intro - Reese & Santonio - Rock to the beat (With our famous friends drop)
Parris Mitchell - Bitches & Money

BRICK BANDITS & DIRTY SOUTH JOE PRESENTS
TOLD NOT SOLD PT 1: THE ROOTS OF BALTIMORE CLUB
This is the first in a series of mixes intending to eventually cover every notable release in the history of the Baltimore Club sound. The combination of New York and Chicago house, as well as UK breakbeat/rave era tunes from the late '80s and early '90s, provided the sound's genesis. American labels like Strictly Rhythm and Dancemania, along with UK imprints such as Blapps! and Shut Up & Dance, found a home in every soon to be Club King's crates, and bits and pieces of what came to be known as Baltimore Club can be heard throughout their grooves. For an absolutely CRUCIAL play by play of some of the records that started the scene, DJ Technics has compiled a list (http://www.baltimoreclubtracks.com/history.htm)
This particular mix is by no means comprehensive. I picked these out more or less because of the similarities between them. The Godfather, Scottie B, called it "proper" and that's all that matters to me! It was recorded all the way live on two turntables and Serato with no headphones, cuz that's how we do it at Ol' Head headquarters. Lots of pops and crackles in the cuts, but I tend to think it gives it a "time capsule" sort of appeal. Super shout out to Scottie B and Shawn Caesar at Unruly Records http://www.unrulyonline.com/ and DJ Stumble for the killer artwork www.myspace.com/stumbol
Here's the tracklisting, along with a word or two from Scottie B to put things in perspective:
1. Andrew Dice Clay - Mother Goose (Dance Club Instrumental)
"Woke Technics out of a sleep over this."
2. Petra & Co - Just Let Go (dub)
"One of those house jawns that bridged club."
3. Oji - Original Man
"Great take on number 2."
4. Masters At Work - The Ha Dance
5. Circle Children - Zulu (Braxton Intro)
6. Pirates Of The Caribbean - Tu No Sabe
"See 2 again...Armand again!!!"
7. Big City - Spanish Lesson
"DJ Freeze...people was like "oh shit!!!""
8. Greed - Give Me
"See 2...house was BIGGGG!!!"
9. S.o.S. - Crank This Mutha
"One of several takes on a DJ Food track."
10. Hoovers & Spraycans - Hoovers & Spraycans
"First ravey jawn for the Baltimore crowd."
11. Stereo MCs - On 33 (45 King Dub)
"One of the linchpins."
12. ? - Let The Pros Go
"UK hip house rules Bmore!!"
13. Barbara Tucker - I Get Lifted The Beat
"See 2 again."
14. KW Griff - Odells Beat
"Modern example of the old school sound."
15. II Da Life - Go
"One of the first Bmores nobody ever mentions."
16. Ultraworld - Life After Death
"See 2 again and again!"
17. The Blunted Dummies - House For All (S-Man's Deep In The Vibe Edit)
"Best selling Unruly jawn ever."
Get ready for Part 2 and by all means ENJOY!

Crossfaded Bacon and Mad Decent Records present
Mad Decent Worldwide Radio #30: BOUNCE IT
Mixed by Emynd
I started listening to Bounce music about two years ago and, over the past couple years, have acquired a pretty extensive collection of CDs, MP3s, and records of this really rich music. For those unfamiliar with Bounce, it is a fairly unique strain of club-oriented hip-hop that originated in New Orleans sometime around 1991 with MC TT Tucker's "Where Dey At." Almost 20 years later, Bounce still dominates the urban club and block party scene in New Orleans with very little major label backing. Just as Baltimore Club is based on the Lyn Collins' "Think" break and the Gaz "Sing Sing" break, Bounce beats are based on samples from The Showboy's "Drag Rap" (aka "Triggerman") and Derek B's "Rock The Beat" drum break (more commonly known as "the Brown Beat"). The best club music seems almost always to thrive on calculated simplicity, and Bounce is no exception, relying on MC work that is based on simple call and response chants, straightforward rhyme schemes/patterns, and repetitive dance refrains. My buddy Noz-- http://www.cocaineblunts.com -- has helped me learn a lot about this music and several years ago (right after Katrina), he put together a really great collection of earlier Bounce songs that you can download (http://www.cocaineblunts.com/blunts/?p=690). Also, the first podcast on New Orleans rap has got some good stuff on it as well.
In contrast to Noz's collection of songs, I made my mix as an effort to put people onto some more recent New Orleans Bounce songs and artists that they likely aren't very familiar with. As you'll notice pretty quickly, I've kept the mixing and DJing to a real minimum and tried to move pretty quickly from song to song to fit in as much stuff is possible. There isn't a real rhyme or reason for most of the selections on here. They're mostly just a bunch of Bounce songs I really like, and I'm hoping some of y'all will enjoy this stuff enough to go and support some of these artists. I've provided links wherever possible to help make that search as easy as I could because a lot of these folks have a pretty strong presence on Myspace. Please hit these dudes up on their Myspace, support their events, and buy whatever you can from them.

As you probably know, my first E.P. 'Suspense Is Killing Me' for Mad Decent has been released. You may have heard the title track in Diplo's Turtles mix from last year - and its finally available for purchase! The E.P. also contains 2 other club influenced tracks in 'The Cricket Scores' and 'Bulbs Burn Out' and an awesome remix of 'Suspense' by Drop The Lime.
To celebrate the release I have done a little mix for Mad Decent radio... Its a little selection of my current favourite tracks and influences all mashed together, From old computer game music, poppy stuff like LadyHawke to the hard electro stuff like The Proxy (Who's current tunes 'Dance in Dark' and Raven are the biggest tunes around!!) Techier stuff like Stephan Bodzin, through Popof, Bumpy Bmore kick drums and loops (DJ Sega and Say Wut). Melodic stuff (Oxia) through to friends and crew (Fake Blood, Crookers) and tracks that are just awesome (Focker)
Anyway, I've only used elements of certain tracks in this mix, but all of them are worth tracking down and listening to. I really wanted to use the horns in the Say Wut thing, but I had real problems getting it all in key. Oh and I decided to try and re-edit the Focker track rather than just play it straight. BLah Blah BLah I hope you enjoy it!
Music from Final Fight on the Amiga
Dan Le Sac - 'Look for the Woman' (Fake Blood Remix)
LadyHawke - 'Paris Is Burning' (Peaches Remix)
The Proxy - 'Ready To Watching'
Bodzin and Huntemann - 'Rubin'
Popof - 'Alcoolic'
Say Wut - 'NFL Ho'
MIA - 'XR'2 (Just the drums)
Dj Sega - 'Bodies Hit The Floor'
Oxia - 'Domino'
Rekorder - 'Rekorder 00'
Memphis Bleak - 'Is That your chick'
Crookers and Boy 8-Bit - 'The Crow'
Late of The Pier - Focker (Boy 8-Bit Re-edit)
Alan Silvestri - Robot Romp (From Flight of the Navigator)

i met dj sega at his weekly party at Jamz skating rink.. i gotta say didnt know what tha fuck was going on in that place. something likea bunch of under 18 yr old black kids dressed kinda nu rave listening to hardcore party music and making up dances.. i had no idea this stuff was happenin right here in philly.. Now we just signed up sega to do this Hollertronix number 8 and its kinda got me thinking like how the hell did this kid from the bricks out in West Philly decide to make mudvayne and drowning pool remixes with lil jon samples.. thats just a snippet of what the brick bandit crew is up to.. this mix goes over his whole crews sound - the crew ranges between philly and newark , NJ- the brick bandits... tameil, mike v, tim dolla among others are murdering it right now. its not just a bmore thing - we got the video podcast coming next to show u how nuts it all is

i went to argentina a year ago for a show and i was all over buenos aires looking for street vendors and trying to hear local music. it wasnt easy to really get down like that.. the place had a lot of energy and all the girls had way better haircuts than in the USA. but it was super segregated socially. i had a local guide take me outside the city to a vila full of immigrants - paraguay, bolivia, uruguay that had come to argentina to find money and happiness. it was tiny streets and brick homes like apartment buildings and i had a barbecue there that was completely unreal... blood sausages and whatever else with bread and some green sauce.... anyway .. we sat and drank this crazy cheap wine and listened to local cumbia stuffs... the imigrants had brought it with them as it dripped down from columbia and took over latin america from the ghettos. that night was really perfect and i wont forget it... and i guess cumbia is like the second music of argentina now after tango and The Ramones.. check out Damas Gratis on youtube! its the Rolling stones of cumbia... with keyboard guitar and long hair and everything
a year later that tour guide - Grant (who manages the website whatsupbuenosaires.com and knows everyone in argentine) had started up a party in BA with some other local partners that kinda builds on the cumbia sound but breaks down all the local musics and turns out hip hop and house dancehall and shit its like argentintronix or something and its named after a philosopher (that married a hot argentinian girl) - ZIZEK.. last month was a year into the party and played it and it was nuts.. . its kinda like the local kids are developing the sound and putting it out there with different influences... they had a table selling local producers stuff and the seller dudes was like ìthis one is north argentinian folkstep gauchito cowboy cumbia! this one is psychadelic cumbia! this one is progressive minimal cumbia! this is cumbia-mash...! anyway.. shit was poppin , even in europe - SAMIMs heater was the biggest club tune of the year (techno track samplin a big cumbia - its a take over!)
so I bought a bunch and then had a lil collection of cumbia ish stuff after buggin in and out of there over the last year.... also grabbe stuff from my boys in mexico back in july- Whats up Toy! ----this mix is kinda like a cumbia step best of according to mad decent, i didnt even stay in south america with it - and i didnt put any of Buenos aires own vila diamanteís cumbia mashups in either but if you can find them GRab em- his stuffs is crazy..- http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=85004898
.. ill do something bigger with the sound later in the year... and i suggest you go see Zizek if your ever in buenos aires on a wednesday night , its a movement!

before there was this old podcast (we 2 yrs strong!) there was one on radioclit (apple knocked em off)
but it was crazy good. radioclit are friends of mad decent, one of the clits actually used to work at Big Dada when they signed me, i think he was my only fan in UK at the time (and he was french).. but then they got god at being wierd and making techno and even did a big track for bonde do role and now santogold... holla. these days they are the coolest world music auteurs your gonna meet and know way too much about africa - so before they get busy again on thier own mixes they did an exclusive 15 minute joint from the ivory coast that bangs in the streets

if you dont know about the rap scene in the bay area.. your kinda lost, according to the the ìtell me when to goî video.. its a proper subculture, they got ghost riding whips, shaking dreads, vans with mac dre pictures on em... and cuddies say wee or something.. its crazy though and while it hasnt been able to crack the mainstream, its totally infected all the kids from sacremento to like whatever all of california..(i did a birthday party in LA and everyone screamed for ìsomething hyphy!î) but heres a comp that just came out ìin school suspensionî thats out on itunes.. thats all made by kids still under grade 12! Lots of whispering and fingersnaps and myspace... plus I want to get bass drums sound like that, must be a class you gotta take.

I got invited to play in tel aviv about 2 years ago and i didnt think much of it at the time... but it ended up being one of the top 3 shows I had ever played..like 700 kids showed up and i did about 3 hours of everything from dubstep and roots and culture to techno and some tongue and cheek trance drops and the people were with me the whole time. the opening djs - polar pair had just released a 12 on tru thoughts and were mixing inst and acapellas from ying yang twins to massive attack like i was in downtown brooklyn 2 years later... it was advanced and mad.. All i knew from Israeli music was like .... infected mushroom and tiesto... who both hold it down. but psytrance wasnt really my thing.
besides that , tel aviv is a beach city where you can find smoking hookas on the beach and ethiopian kids with sunbleached hair jumpin off rocks all day. its far from the day to day violence that is published and for the most part its a secular city with Arab neighborhoods mixed in and around.. but what i didnt expect on my second visit last month, was to find the music scene still exploding. i went to a bar at 2am to hear Hebrew baile funk tracks and then to a dubstep party filled with .. gasp girls at another bar a few streets out..(this is the day after a national holiday) so I can only imagine how it is around there on the real nights.
so my boy from soulico was djing one of these bars playin mad stuff and he droped the mix by with some demos as well
here is the info

like any self respecting hip hop fan, iím completely obsessed with Jay D.. the hip hop producer from detroit that is every producers favorite producer (he was actually hip hop incarnate) ... he died last year - feb 10th, and i cant even say how tragic it was for our generations musical landscape.... you will figure that out in time.
Dj soul just did an exclusive mini mix for mad decent radio, because I just wanted to keep people out there knowing he was one of the reasons we do any of the things we do over at mad decent .. and i can do a dilla mix every 2 weeks for gods sake
and check out the incredible assorted donuts mix soul has done, and big huge propers goes to soul for taking part in the Dilla project walk for lupus 2 weeks back in detroit
but we are back on the horse form a long hiatus and expect more regular updates over here...

yeah ,,, blaqstarr "supastarr" Ep just got released by mad decent ....... if you like our radio, then support our label.
blaqstarr is a fixture in baltimore. if you didnt know the evolution of the club sound in baltimore, then turning on 92q on a weekday drive time and hearing "get my gun" or "feel it in the air" (on a commercial black radio station) might freak you the fuck out .. it comes out of nowhere, and blaqstarrs sound has taken over the city.. (especially if your under 20) check rocking off or spongebob or wu-tangin on youtube... cause its about 600,000 videos that kids made to blaqstarrs city wide anthems.. wait til you see the EPk we just made at an all ages dance..............
anyway . this mix is mad wierd, loud and scary and still kinda pretty in parts. kinda like baltimore

james brown died on christmas, and I couldnít do any more podcasts til we did it about him.
cause james brown gave birth to this podcast and he gave birth to everything in modern music - nothing is the same after he was here and now heís gone and I feel bad for people in heaven that have to rewind through his life cause it must be pretty damn nuts. This mix of JB songs and production credits is under 30 minutes and I thought I was listenin to it for 3 days before it ended.
Mix was done by cosmo baker.. heís a true hero to me.
i used to go to fluid on monday nights to check cosmo at his party called remedy.. it was on fuckin monday nights and it was packed thick and cosmo would drop his signature style of hip hop and classics and wierd stuff no one would expect but would turn it out.. i recognized cosmo as that dude from the on the go video that was in 9th st records and bought funk inc and mccoy tyner lps for like a dollar (that was crazy staged cause I know that dude behind the counter was mad cheap!) .. at the remedy I saw everyone form phil the soulman to cash money to mf doom to Dj drama up in there playing... i even slipped pharell a copy of newsflash on 12î on a monday
so JB gave birth to everything in modern music then cosmo was a dude that gave birth to djs like me. I had to ask him to do this mix cause he was a more then a mentor .. his james brown science is like mr wizard... as you can listen
thees days cosmo is killing it as a member the RUB in BK and doing loads of parties from calgary to tel aviv on the weekends so i suggest you go to see him play or you will lose a little bit of your soul

then came back and got mad weird (kuduro)
whats really boa..
i met a bunch of angolan dudes under the lapa arches in Rio in 2005, they were studyin from luanda and had on crazy red black fist and sickle soccer jerseys (the angolan colors) but instead of some sort of soccer ball images it was just a black fist and a turntable and said kuduristas... i didnt even ask what the f**k that meant but I tried to buy the shirt and they almost beat me up.
angolans in brazil have a
fast forward 1 and a half years and im in Lisbon djing a festival with my man dj marlboro from RIo and Buraka som systema (the local heros) .. i tell you , it was pretty bad for me... BSS took the stage and had the whole crowd had reached some type of higher state of conciousness and massive attack (playin on the main stage) asked the promotors to shut our tent down (shook ones!).. so 2 hours late - marlboro equally tore it up and then finally I had to go on in the postponed 5am slot! wtf.. my flight was at 7:30... was kinda wack .. i think hot chip had to wake me up at the airport cause kids were stealing my luggage.
..But at the BSS show i swear it was the first time I recorded like 15 minutes of video with my cellphone and even after it died I sat there and still tried to record with it sittin the air.. this sound was a monster and it got every Portugese kid in the crowd on their knees then hoppin up and down and i was even proud to be Angolan!
I met Petty (lead singer of BSS) and she was wearing havianas with the brasillian flag substituyed with the angolan flag.. a kinda of symbol of how self realized the music is....
shout out to my melhor homies, Kalaf, Lil Joao, and Conduter for showing me around lisbon, breaking down the kuduro and makin a crazy MAD ILL silLY remix for bonde do role thats out next month...... and I see you egg foo (holiday mix comin up next)

Zulu nation celebrates its 26th anniversary this week, me and zulu nation... weíre both scorpios, nearly the same age.
Bronx in 1981... what the f**k was goin on here..?!?!?
A subculture that redefined world culture .. imploded in the poorest parts of New York city.. heres a lil peek into the wierd world of this scene..
WHBI, NEWARK, 105.?.....
Afrika Islam is known as the son of Bambaataa, not for real but he followed the legacy and he held it down on the air in Newark radio at 1 am wednesday nights.. (where this mix is from).. its rough cut from cassette tape - eclectic unknown breaks, funk, electronic, rock music chopped together .. like a random symphony for kids of hi energy.. its almost spooky to hear just the bare essentials of what we mastered as producers today.. breakbeats, sparse vocals, or horns or guitars chopped in and out.. this is what we deal with today but back then kids just made it all live with a lot of random records they studied.
Islam was a staple party dj in early 80ís in nyc.. one of the dudes to really cross over with the down town scene and still stay street and shout out all the gangs in harlem and brooklyn.. he then went on to produce most of Ice Tís first record in LA. then like most zulu dudes had to like move to germany when hip hop went crazy with puffy and stuff..
The first time I heard ìits just begunì by jimmy castor was at a warehouse in Tennessee when i was like 15. These kids would bring boomboxes and breakdance on the marble floor. It was the second wave of hip hop culture that went through the midwest mostly on freight trains covered in spray paint, and raves... but we had as much passion as the first b boys.. just mad late- actually I think by then early nineties like Germans and Lithuanians were winning all the breakdance contests anyway.. but that whole s**t changed my life. When i heard the Jimmy castor song and saw kids dancing to it i thought it really did mean something... like the revolution was about to begin.
maybe it did. I started painting on the trailors parked on the 2 lane highway by house when the were building mattress barns and new Shoneyís diners.. I know now how wack mini malls are, But white trailors, trains, mud and fences at night was like all i day dreamed about in the day besides this girl that worked at the donut shop.. so maybe I was part of a revolution?
If you want to read up on ZULU
Davey D pretty much broke it down here
its pretty mindblowing how big this s**t is and what it really means..
i mean damn,to say ì if people focused energy on creativity instead of crimeî sounds like something Nancy Reagan would say... but thats exactly what happened and it turned out to redefine the world.. I always say that i do what i do cause of bambaataa and ZULU.. but its really true.

Pitbull sound is one of the premier funk carioca dj crews in Rio..
up there with Big mix, furacao 2000, Pipos... and even Soul grand prix way back when they played soul still at baile funks .. Sany played a party I put together in Prazeres.. its a favela high up near corcovado (where the big jesus from micheal jacksons video stays at!) its probably the highest favela in all of Brazil. If you know my podcast ,, you probably know the drill with Brazillian funk music..
The sounds range from vocal melody, syncopated portugese rhymes.. 5 or 6 extremely overused Samples (pavorati organ hits, rocky theme (chopped to hell), old school miami bass vocal stabs, Dire straghts ìbrother at armsî shows up all the time, Euro techno samples.. and most importantly samba drums (tamberzao, batidao) patterned in an electro rhythm...melody is missing, and repetition is the key.. Dj style is similliar to a dancehall sound in Jamaica.. lyrics are blended by many artists over the same rhythm.. the tempo never changes..... the sound is kinda blowing up worldwide..
But it started somewhere... (that what this special edition is about!) miami bass gave birth to this strange baby in brazil, And the Djís ruled the streets, and built the culture between freestyle, bass, house music and
samba in the early 90ís
Sany did a special mix for mad decent to launch his own carioca funk clube website and podcast ... YOU never hear carioca Djs put it down like this .. Sany had to dig out his actual turntables for this! they stay on the cdj 100 down there!
ITS rio funk party sound track circa 1990.. the first time kids were rapping in portugese over the funk beats.... he puts it out there .. the classics (you got to start with SPRING LOVE!) The musical history told here reflects the first phase of funk, turning from the international influences to a brazilian party, from a inside DJ point of view (don't expect sweet famous standarts, but the rare original dirty PARTY BOOSTERS that made the trick from gringo to ghetto)
you can still catch Sany in Rio 5 nights a week in the clubs and favela bailes. http://pitti.podomatic.com / ITS CRAZY

Theres not place in America more strange than New Orleans, Louisiana, If it was mad before the storm but now its just plane insane.. but in a good way. if you travel here from the outside, its gonna seem like whole nother country.
And as far as music goes (in case you didnt know) . . the mississippi delta is the birthplace of most types of modern american music. Hip hop mighta been born in the bronx, but then it was reinvented in New Orleans.. the krunk we get today playlisted all over the country might have Atlanta in a headlock, but the blueprint was laid out in New Orleans.. Its origins are in bounce music and its still there; its actually having a rejuvenation since there little more to look forward to besides dancing these days.
anyway i never felt more affection for an city like I got it for new orleans, and even though some parts still looks like a nuclear bomb got dropped, its got all the character that you can expect with a city so rich in culture and history
partners in crime - block party
da sha ra - bootin up
dj jubilee - monkey on the stick
