Forewarning: This is gonna be another long one! Pase Rock dropping in for my quarterly post. I'm down under in the land of OZ for a couple weeks so come check me out you Australians. Your gay diving gold medalist is GANGSTA! did you see that dive? like whoa. but I digress... I was in Los Angeles last week DJing up a storm and doing photoshoots and stuff. I knew I was going to be doing all these hipster parties and/or top 40 spots (which were still mad fun) so I reached out to the homies at the Do-Over to see if I could drop through and do a guest set. They were down. For those of you that don't know the Do-Over is the best party in Los Angeles and has been running for about 3 years. It's hosted by Chris Haycock, Jaime Strong from Stones Throw and the man the myth the legend Aloe Blacc. Aloe is the MC and they have a various who's who of DJ's unexpectedly stopping thru. This year alone Stretch Armstrong, Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Eleven, Thee Mike B, Will.I.Am, Lloydski, Blu Jemz, DJ Spinna, 9th Wonder, DJ namedrop namedrop namedrop have all showed up and rocked. They never announce the line up, you just have to come and get down and jam. It's a real music loving crowd on some sweaty backyard barbeque and sangria steez. BEAUTIFUL. My plan was to play some soulful disco and house but when I arrived Damon Bell was kinda destroying the game on that tip and Chris asked me to "get it loose" around 7 pm. Arabian Prince from NWA (yeah that NWA) was playing after me, so I was kinda in "holy shit" mode and really geeking out on some nerdy hip hop shit (bu-bu-but wait it gets worse!) so I check out the scene to see what was mean and feel it out a little bit on what I should do. I think I made the right decision. ANYWAY if you're ever in LA in the summertime on a sunday afternoon make sure you stop by Crane's Tavern in Hollywood for the Do Over. go for the music, get drunk off the sangria and stay for the BBQ.

ps: at about 28:32 Aloe Blacc freestyle w/ Dres from Black Sheep! why I didn't drop "engine engine number 9/ Choice Is Yours" only god knows. oh well I think it wouldve been too predictable anyway. next time I play at the Do-Over I'm GOING IN!

pps: Before I get called out...yes I know, Chris, Ron and everybody that's heard me DJ before (in the last 3 years at least) "fill in the blank jumpoff mix" is tired. It's officially retired with this set. I just played it for these guys cuz 90% of the crowd had never heard me DJ before.

this is bugging me, so I got to say it - in the top photo of your post, the black guy in the black tee with the white letting at the waist IS THE SAME GUY who's in the front row of that MPC routine video with DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist and NuMark. He was doing that EXACT same thing with his hand up to his nose.

he is so annoying in that video.

rant over.
