People gotta eat…
DJStylee.com launched 2 years ago this month and it’s still and alive and kicking. I had no idea what I was going to do with the site and it’s evolved for sure, but I do know I always wanted to get my mixes out there as well as my opinions on all things music. Big ups to everyone that’s ever visited the site and all my Facebook and Twitter followers.
I’m always trying to get better with not only my DJing but also with my design work. This is a great platform for me to receive feedback on both so be sure to drop a line if you have an opinion either way.
As a bonus, here’s a brief look at some of my headers over the years. I’ll try to add some of the older ones if I can find them. They were atrocious.
Thanks to http://wrestlingalbums.tumblr.com/ for these crown jewels. I think you can officially find anything on Tumblr now days.
I almost wouldn’t eat it. I’d freeze it and bring it out every year.
For my 100th post I’ll be all vain about it and post an action shot of myself (without my Tech 1200′s mind you) for your viewing pleasure. Ok, maybe not model material but I’m going to try to post more mixes and news/musings/photos about my events in 2012 and for my next 100 posts. This is ‘DJStylee.com’ after all. Don’t worry, I’ll still have my random postings and images that I’ll post. They seem to be working as well.
Thanks to everyone that has been viewing my site since it’s inception February 2010!
Pretty cool Tumblr I came across (http://liveiseedeadpeoples.tumblr.com/) where deceased band members/artists are removed from famous album covers. I’m surprised there aren’t any 2pac or Biggie ones yet. I’m sure these guys will get to it. Here our a few examples of the album covers they revised:
This blew my mind. Works best when you use headphones.
Surprisingly I hear stuff similar to this when ‘We Found Love’ is requested…
This video is amazing. It analyzes how a relatively unknown break at the time morphed into one of the most sampled beats ever and dives into sampling in today’s music world. I feel twice as smart as I did before I watched this. Here’s a brief synopsis from the site LifeSignsProject:
The most famous loop af all time. The “Amen Break” is a six-second drum sample from the b-side of the chart-topping single from The Winstons in 1969. This sample was used extensively in early hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis for drum-and-bass and jungle music.
The following video does an amazing job of “breaking” down just how important this 6 second sample is in the context of music to follow.
