Get Ready With Haruka Salt 999 – The Mix

19 May

It’s odd that we feature pop music and hip hop, at least in explicit, raw, un-remixed forms, here on Retail DJ. Yet when we do, we do it for very good reason. This time around, we were given a more than legitimate reason to post a lil pop thanks to this week’s featured artist Haruka Salt 999. Staying true to our commitment to provide the best music for dancing, getting ready, and general revelry at home or on the street, this mix provides the framework for all the above.

In keeping with her mission to provide a mixtape-like feel to all of her live and recorded sets,
Haruka takes us through a trip of hip hop, breaks, dance rock, funk carioca, and electronic dance music without a blink. When I got the mix in my soundcloud inbox, it’s initial title was “Get It Poppin.” I immediately knew I was in for a treat – one that I now share with you all without the slightest hesitation. This versatile mix is perfect for any mood, so I encourage you to play, download, and share it stat! Don’t waste any time. Come with us to Get Ready With Haruka Salt 999!

Get Dressed to This: Smoking in the Boys’ Room

13 Sep

I tend to cover clothes for the ladies here on Retail DJ, but every now and then, I give a nod to males of the species. It’s a bit odd really, how men are in the forefront in music (production, frontmen, DJs, band members, etc etc etc), but they’re a bit ignored by the fashion world. Fortunately, men’s casual wear is coming quite into its own, and a few creative labels out there are producing interesting pieces (many of which bend the lines of gender, which is perfect considering that the androgynous look is “all the rage” this season). What’s great about this outfit is that while it’s made for men, it would work on women as well (same styling, possibility different sizes).

In terms of the music this time around, I’m also stepping a bit out of my element and putting the shine on a rock mix. Though Edu K normally makes electronic and funk carioca tracks/remixes, the famed Brazilian producer likes to rock out as well. It’s what kept me awake during a long day at work last week, so surely it will get you revved up for a night out (or even tomorrow morning’s commute). Be daring and press play for this heavy metal meets heavy bass mix. Get Dressed to This:

Bringing It All Together: DJ Beware for Man Recordings

8 Sep

DJ Beware indeed. This man means business.

DJ Beware recently put out a mix for the 5-year anniverary for Man Recordings, a Berlin-based label that supports Brazilian (and other) funk artists. They’ve been putting out stellar EPs, records, mixes, and singles for the past few years, and in such a short time have truly been a leader in putting funk carioca on the map. It’s a positive form of globalization, with artists from Brazil earing exposure and benefiting in the lucrative sense as well. This mix is a medley of a ton of the tracks they’ve released over the years, and a nice tribute for a company that’s bringing it all together, one track at a time.

Beyond being a nice way of honoring Man Recordings, it also happens to be a solid mix. Though I’ve heard all the songs therein, the order, the remixing, and the general delivery make everything sound brand new to my ears. It’s a joy to listen to, with tracks from MC Gringo, MC Gi, Edu K, Joyce Muniz, the Count and Sinden, Gaiola das Popozudas, Deize Tigrona, and many many more. I advise you play at home so you can truly break it down. Trust me – you’ll want to 🙂

Retail DJ March Tracklist: The Ides Have It

22 Mar

We all know that the 15th of March didn’t bode too well for ancient Roman leader Julius Caesar, but I figured I’d give 3/15 a new spin and maybe a little more luck.

For this month’s Retail DJ Tracklist, I’ve decided to give you 15 tracks, each with a different sound, but that somehow come together nicely. Tracks range from a little old school hip hop and experimental house to ghetto-tech and Italo-German dance rock. The tracks will be available for download until April 22nd, so get to downloading now! Enjoy this set, and continue to have a happy March!
