Breakfast is important

get your nutrition on!

Black Milk "?"
I randomly came across this untitled track. If your a fan of Dilla, I know you gonna dig this! Black Milk has been hard at work and carrying on that Detroit sound. A young apprentice of the late Dilla, the man is fierce on the mpc. The choppin' and slicing of soulful samples, with solid drums are laid out in a perfect arrangement. Put this on while you eat breakfast.

Mark Ronson feature Lily Allen "Oh My God" Mark Ronson's new cd is out and it's good from beginning to end. Mark and Lily team up to cover a song by The Kaiser Chiefs, that I've never heard. The track is perfect for some cool out shit. A bottle of wine, some cheese and bread, you know the drilly', or maybe you don't. OMG

Feist "Sea Lion" Chromeo rmx
The catchy chorus and soothing vocals of Feist combined with Chromeo's synth, disco boogie production is flawless. Chromeo really did it on this one. Eventually you will move to this, I know I do every time I hear it. Ladies will definitely feel sexy to this.

The Party - Dallas, Tx

And you thought Dallas didn't know how to get down! Witnes just recently made his debut in Dallas at The Party with the homies Select and Sober. Witnes said, "This was the best time I've had in a long time, Dallas is doing big things!" Check out the pictures from The Party!

Nick Nack tonite at The Flat

My man Nick Nack of ATX will be in the building. I've had the pleasure of knowing ol' boy for a decade and dude is sharp like shark teeth. He's the creator of the Soundcraftsmen record which is an amazing tool for turntablist. Go ask Jazzy Jeff. Nick is on it when it comes to skills. Whether it's live performances, mix tapes, production or design, he's an overall talented individual. His recent project is the DJ friendly website GigaCrate. Get more info on Nick at Crowd Control Records.

The get down start

Throw back video for my folkers out in the Bay.

History lesson: On April 18th, 1906, the Bay was hit with 8.3(Mw) earthquake. One of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States.

The homies in Dallas at Central Booking recently featured Witnes on their blog. April 20th will be the debut for Witnes up in Dallas at the monthly event "THE PARTY". Stand UP!

In other news, Squincy Jones and Witnes recently finished a new 30 min. mix of Hip Hop tracks only from 1987 and 1988 titled "Do Ya Homework". "I can't stand when I'm playing at the club and some dumb smuck walks up, asking me to play some old school, and I say, ok what is old school to you?, and they some Biggie or Pac....MAAAAYYNNE FUNK DAT, Biggie and 2pac are not old school, this mix right here is old school." says Witnes. They whipped up the mix for an Urb mix tape contest and did not want me to list the track listing so you could, *CHA CHING* DO YA HOMEWORK! Good luck doggies!


Good ol' Bird Peterson just released his lastest project "Hot Noise". If you don't know about Mr. Peter, you best go research. The man is a genius with production that blends Electro/Crunk/Bmore/Breakbeat/Keyboard-Rock and anything else that goes on in that Bird size brain. Bird is the type of dude to go into Whole Foods and drowned himself in some patchouli oil to smell good for the ladies, and if the fact that he's from Texas doesn't sell you on it, I don't know what else to say! Go buy it!

After party at Rock Box

We made it! Just a lil F.Y.I., DJ Witnes was at The Proletariat for a year by himself until he started Rock Box the 2nd year. So Rock Box is really 3 yrs old but since Wit is such a humble dude, he called it the 2nd. I'm pullin' your card homie. Unlike other nights that don't last or have longevity, It looks like Rock Box is gonna' be here for the long term. They haven't relocated, there is always new faces and the dj's are tastemakers. Cool kids, this is where you need to be, you best recognize!
