New York!!!

I love how the first snare hit is so worn out on this track from cutting it in a million times. I'm gonna have to call Kilo and get a copy of his old mix tape with this track on it. Classic!!!

InI- Props

Straight Up and Down.

This an Underground Gem for you to enjoy after a blunt. Roll that shit, Light that shit!

Head Nod!!!!

I'm feeling this old shit like it was new again. More to come....

Smut Peddlers- One by One 12"

Month Long Slacking

I have nothing to say but back in the day before I was a DJ I really liked (and still do) album scratch tracks. I would make pause tapes and always throw them in to break up the vocals. Here is one from way back that is nice and funky.

Meastro Fresh Wes- Fortissimo

Sample Days

This re-edit of a Booker T & the MG's track is nice to just mellow out to. The O.G. was sampled by one of my all time favs Big Daddy Kane. "Come, get some, you little bum......

P.S. We were away on vacation for the past 10 days or so if anyone cares. Sorry for no posts during that time.

Basslines and Body Parts

This album has a ton of funky bassline riffs. It almost sounds like a modern day record (almost) but then the lead singer's voice chimes in. Damn.

Right, so sometimes your spine is the bassline? Yeah, and sometimes I wish my hands were tamborines...

Shriekback - My Spine (Is The Bass Line)

Just a Slice.

So this track was on a Short Cut Reggae Mix made years ago and I needed this track bad. I used to make lists (and still do) of 12"s I needed to find (pre Serato no doubt). This was up there on the list and then I found it. The part that Short Cut used was about as long as you need from this Dub version of "U Can't Escape the Hypeness" Just a quick slice of the track. The other side is a hip-house track that ain't all that. Maybe I will rip it one day.

Blvd. Mosse- U Can't Escape the Hypeness (Dub)

I'm going to make this into a t-shirt. Who wants one?

Mellow OOUT!

We here at MegaDeadly like to mix it up for the most part. Here is some mellow Dub off a Nu Gruv comp called "Mi Selecta"
For some reason this song sounds like Farmer Dub if there is such a thing.

Easy Star All-Stars- Asylum Dub

Wreck Shop.

I'm at home and out of the corner of my eye "So You Think You Can Dance?" is on the TV. If anyone out there wants to put a show called "So You Think You Can Dj?" Holler at me. And when the judges need to give a Dj the Gas Face they can do it to "6 Million Ways to Die Choose One!!!!!!!!

P.S. FunkMaster Flex killed it back in the day on the Stretch and Bobito show. Check Stretch's blog

Play It Loud, Douchebag

When I was growing up I didn't know anyone that didn't listen to Dayglo Abortions. And by anyone, I mean anyone who was into stupid Canadian punk songs. Dayglo has been around since the year I was born - AND - they're still kickin' it.

Anyway, what rebellious teenager wouldn't want an album that included a recipe for chili made out of a ripe human foetus? Riiiight.

Dayglo Abortions - Bedtime Story

Lets go to the Mos Eisley Cantina, have a drink and listen to Figrin D'an and his Modal Nodes.

The central bar is a high-tech, if outdated, set-up capable of synthesizing virtually any known drink in the sector. The mixing computer knows 16,000 recipes, but of course, Chalmun the Wookiee proprietor does not keep all the required ingredients in stock. Damn!!!

There is a 7" out there with this section I ripped from the LP mega mix. I wish I had it.
Star Wars by Meco - Cantina Band

Disco Daze

All i wanna do is disco dance with you... seriously. This jam makes me wanna strap on my platforms and go for a strut. Plus - the intro could be cut up and looped. It's just that good...

Sylvester - You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)

91' Yall!

I'm loving coming across B-Side LP tracks that I never gave too much time to when I got the record. I guess you learn to appreciate things years later.

Chubb Rock- The Bad Boys

Cold Chillin'

I could never play this out because I never had a 12" if there is one. The clubs would always feed back. Booooo-Hooooo!
There are some great tracks on the Greatest Hits but this one stands out for me.

Roxanne Shante- Have a Nice Day

Basement Flavor

This First Priority Music Family Comp. It features the likes of Audio Two, MC Lyte and Positive K. But this cut by Alliance is nice like a Dela song and thats what I feel like posting right now. Stay tuned for some raw shit.

Alliance- Get on Down

B-side Remixes!

I love forgetting about B-Side remixes that you may not have ever played because you liked another track on the 12 better.
Digging around and finding shit is so fun. Can't wait to play this Throwdown Mix next time the right moment presents its self.

B-Side Winner. The stripped down beat at the end is butter.
Maestro Fresh Wes- Drop The Needle (Throwdown Club Mix)
A-Side Stuff
Maestro Fresh Wes- Drop The Needle (45 King Remix)
Maestro Fresh Wes- Drop The Needle (LP Version)

M. fucking O. fucking P. Keep it Rugged!!!

This blog really cooled off after like a week or so of existence. Then I was checking out U-Tern's lasted post and realized I'm super lazy. So here we go...
I've liked M.O.P. since this shit came out. Period!

I don't know why M.O.P. would ever put a radio edit on any 12". This still bangs though.
M.O.P. -Downtown Swinga (Radio)
The other notable track on the double 12 is nice too.
M.O.P.- Rugged Neva Smoove (Primo Remix Street)

EightBall Records

This was my first House record. I found it at a thrift store a long time ago. This was before I knew what Eight Ball Records was. Straight up reason why I put it in my purchase pile back then. It ended up being pretty dope for the couple coins I paid for it. This track anyway.

The African Dream- All the Same Family

Can Con!!!

I'll have to dig up the Flavor Unit comp I have somewhere. It has some good jams on it. For now here is some Michie Mee for you from 1990. Entire 12"

Michie Mee- Jamacian Funk
Michie Mee- Jamacian Funk Instro
Michie Mee- All Night Stand

B- Boys and Girls

I used to play this for the B-Boys and Girls in the small room at Sonar back in the Cherry Bombs days. Why don't the B-Boys and Girls ever go out anymore? Maybe they do. I don't know. Anyway, this track off this comp is dope when the Apache break drops in. Go get your Uprock on!

Sutra Sonic- Shalamar

Skate Jam

My Homeboy Scotty used to play Mo Wax shit at the Skate Jams up in Whistler back in the day. This is a cut off of Krush's "Strictly Turntableized" that I like.

Dj Krush- Yeah

Break Time!

This is the kind of jam that makes digging for 50 cent thrift store records worth while. This comp. has a few other good tracks like "Cookies" and "Party is a Groovy Thing" (the vocal version of the track I'm posting). Good drum break to loop and have one of your rapper buddies freestyle over it for like an hour, If you're into that kind of thing. Or you can just kick it and enjoy.

The People- A Groovy Thing

Cold Housin'

Age was super into the early 90's underground British hip hop scene - which explains how this record came to be in my hands.

Released on British hip hop label Blapps! Records in '89 and produced by the Dynamic Guvnors - the acid beats definitely reflect a UK sound. Get yo' dance on!

The 3D mix is shorter and more "ravey" - which is why I probably like it better...
MC Untouchable - Cold House (Ooh Ooh Mx)
MC Untouchable - Cold House (3D Mix )

Deadly to the Mega

I thought I'd come out the doors running ... and even though it's something you'll probably never listen to, I'm takin' it and running all the way.

My inspirations for posting this are the following two things:

Anthrax's wicked 80's "I'm The Man" poses, showing their (ahem) funny, loveable side
The 80's catch phrase "NOT" that caught like wildfire and deemed necessary to use throughout this song

Sorry. I couldn't help myself. I promise more engaging gems soon...

Anthrax- I'm the Man (Def Uncensored Version)

Chop it up

I forgot about this Lp that James Brown did with old school cats Full Force. This track I'm posting has been sampled by some people but I can't remember who. It needs to be chopped up and freshened up. Get to work.

James Brown- Godfather Runnin the Joint

One to chill to

I'm digging out old tracks that I'm like "Damn, forgot how nice this is" Good one to stroll around with the headphones on.

Brand Nubian- Word is Bond (Remix)

In the daytime the radio's scared of me

A while back I stopped Skateboarding for a bit and then a friend of mine said to me "Why did you abandon skateboarding, skateboarding never abandoned you" - So I got a new deck and and wheels and went skating.

I've kind of abandoned my Records as of late due to Serato. I put shit loads of money and time into my collection so its time to give some attention to it. We are gonna keep the music on here pretty loose. There is no theme or gimmick to this blog just records to be shared.

That being said...the first thing to go up is a record I never really used to play out. Musical tastes change over the years and listening to this after a long time makes me realize its pretty dope.

Here is the Club Groove mix or For Those Who Like to Groove and the Club Bonus. Its on some Hip-House type vibe. Produced by The Hollywood Impact.
