A lot of friends and visitors to my blog have asked me where I get a lot of my music. I buy half of my music from itunes.com and most if all the underground mixes/music from beatport.com and Rock N Soul records located in midtown Manhattan. If you are music enthusiast you can always sign up for a free account at djforums.com. This website has a ton of great remixes and DJ compilations.
One mix I strongly recommend you download was created by DJ Jay Free. The two hour audio montage includes hip-hop, rock and 80's mash-ups. This is a great mix to entertain people with this weekend.
In addition to some new music, I suggest you check out Scratch the feature-length documentary film about hip-hop DJing aka turntablism. From the South Bronx in the 1970s to San Francisco now, the world's best scratchers, beat-diggers, party-rockers, and producers wax poetic on beats, breaks, battles, and the infinite possibilities of vinyl. Lucky for you, I found a full length copy of the film on Youtube.
STAY TUNED... I'm almost done with a new mix inspired by the soundtrack of Slumdog Millionaire. A majority of the music on this mix contains Indian sounding instruments or vocals such as Night Rider - Jay Z ft. Punjabi MC, React - Eric Sermon and Issac - Madonna. I am super psyched to share this with you soon.
