The title of this Post is taken from a Richy Pitch Ep of the same name (Dope Cover!!). I think it is a really good title for this new seris of mini-mixes here at Fully Fitted so, I'm Jacking it. I'm getting some freinds and fellow Djs to make a mix at home (1 take no edits) and send it in to be distrubuted on the internets.
I did this one the other Day, sometimes things don't go as you planned.
The long-awaited release of the Chipset/Rockswell rework of Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" will most likely be included on the upcoming FULLY FITTED EP. Which, unbeknownst to moi, was first sampled by Kid 'N Play back in 1988 on the 2Hype album. Look, before you get all huffy puffy... Kid 'N Play only sucked after they started making movie sequels, Sprite commercials and Saturday morning cartoons. Before that, they were great! If you don't believe me, then you probably only started listening to hip hop after you saw one of their movie sequels, Sprite commercials or Satuday morning cartoons.
Alex and I used to have heated arguments over the order of the Mad Max movie franchise. I can't remember which side of the fence either of us were on or which one of us was ever right, but I know this...
fixed this link to the me vs. Eli E.V.R. show. now it's the whole show instead of just the last hour. Pretty much everything on the upcoming Fully Fitted EP is on this show so be sure and check it out!
One of the tracks from the up-coming Fully Fitted EP (soon to be released on Money Studies) got leaked about a week ago on the Mad Decent Blog. So, before it gets yanked... download XXXchange's 100 Million Re-Edit while its still available for fucking free!
""When Mr Devlin got at me about posting this mix up I was a bit surprised and amused that he and a few others were really feeling it. Back when I was still living in San Antonio (hometown baby baby!) I was apart of a collective known as the Diggin Deep Quartet. It started with JJ Lopez playing northern soul, modern soul, and heavy funk in the basement of a swanky bar downtown. He being a mentor of mine years back, I always had respect for him and his musical selections. His tastes started to mature a bit and started moving into more of a disco sound, as did mine. We both had a large background in House music and culture, so the step was a logical one to take. Soon after, we discovered a slower, deeper sound that the english like to call boogie. The sound was derived from a disco backlash, hip hop, r&b and other new experiments in musical instrumentation. I have been inspired by New Yorks melting pot of cultures since I could remember, and this was no different. The time period I constantly look on the back of records range from 79-84, those are my years. If any of those years are on there with some bad looking cover, chances are you got some serious heat. I mean it makes sense, I was born in 83. The year hip hop went from being disco to "hip hop", the Misfits broke up, and Thriller became the best selling record of all time. You do the math. Oh wait, this had nothing to do with the mix... we made this in the basement of said swanky bar, Davenport (RIP), all live, all vinyl."

Fully Fitted represented hard in Los Angeles this past weekend at Santi's "Creator" video shoot. there was lots of car chases (2), mad little kids, Security of the first world meets Robert Palmer back up dancers, a kidnapping, a latenight ocean swim in vintage wetsuits, Jim Jones (not BAAALLLIIIIN! Jim Jones or Capo status Jim Jones, the other one with the Kool Aid), NWA Straight Outta Compton Posse shots. what else? mad cameos. like maaaaadddd cameos. Directed by Ace Norton. here's some pics:
"Digging for records can be academic, but Kant and Euclid never made your ass move. Audioblogs galore are as imposing as they are pleasing, and the ability to let the world know what you're into has spawned an excess of "B-more" remixes of Eagles songs and such that the world can do without. The internet is an accessory to taste, not a substitution.
This mix Funny Accent is my wee contribution to the arena, based on records I actually own and have found around the world by asking questions and really enjoying the process of learning about music. It reflects me as a listener first and a DJ second, as any mix should. Mr. Devlin seems to agree, that's why he's my dawg and he put me on his blog"
Ma Dukes watched the Grammys the other night and felt compelled to continuously tell me about these two glowing cyborgs in this pyramid thingy. She thought they were soooo cool... I peeped the youtube video below and found that I can't be mad at her... she right. I can only hope that in the not-to-distant future, Naeem's still jumping around on stage and Chris and I are in a hugh lazer triangle!
And for all the new kids out there, heres the original dance floor heater.
Wow. In NY today it's 11 (F) and the windchill is below zero. Good thing I don't have a jobjob . I'm gonna stay inside make sprinkle edits , and download music. While today is freezing ,the weekend was pretty nice. Saturday I hit the town with Alex Huggs and Clayton Pretty Titty. We went bar and party hopping and around 2am Alex and I ended up at Savalas, where this kid played an amazing Yacht Rock set. Steely Dan to Michael McDonald and all that good stuff, but I digress.
The point of the story is, after Late night Falafels on Houston I purchased this :
This book is amazing (and crazy as shit)...but don't take it from me... It is, according to the author, "the most read in New York" and Russel Simmons says, "I really like the title."
As for the artwork, I've been to art school and, man, a class could probably have a 30 min. discussion on it's formal qualities alone, but that would be pretty boring.... Just buy a copy and enjoy.
