Funk on a Friday: It’s All About Love

4 Feb

There is one song that, as the lyrics say, I just can’t get off my mind. It’s Eli Escobar’s “Love Thing Part 2” as remixed by DJ Mehdi. I hear it almost every time I go out, and EZRAKH even played it at WERK! (Retail DJ 1-Year Anniversary Party), but it never gets old. Check out the original:

 

and also check this re-edit/mashup WooHoo did with Soul Clap and Gadi Mizrahi’s remix of Bad Rabbits “Bad Love”

Something To WERK (out) To . . .

19 Jan

Today I was back in the gym for the first time in an embarrassingly long time. I, justifiably, blame it on all the time and energy I devoted to grad school applications, moving, and other life activities that put the gym on the backburner. BUT as it’s 2011 now, I felt that bit of January guilt and, even more so, my bank account yelling from a distance “GO to the gym or that money they take out from your account every month might as well be put in a trashcan and lit on fire,” so I hauled ass to the land of muscleheads and models and took a punching bag to task. While boxing, my soundtrack came c/o France’s Mustard Pimp, whose epic mixes guarantee anything from old school nostalgia to a headbanging blast.

The latest mixtape series from MP goes by the name Catastrophe. A fitting title, no less, for a mix that made me do some serious damage today at the gym. Hopefully it helps you as well as you attempt to fulfill the demands of your new year’s resolutions (follow the links for the tracklists; click to stream / click the small arrow on the right to download):

Vol 1:

Vol 2:

Vol 3:

Vol 4:

By the way, don’t forget to show off your new body (or old one, whichever is best) at WERK!: The Retail DJ 1-Year Anniversary (1.27.11 @ Gallery Bar). Look at it this way, at least dancing is a heavy-duty WERKout (sorry, couldn’t resist). RSVP here

Random Aside: The Retail DJ Mascot

14 Jan

Brodinski (the dog, not the DJ)

I’ve been a bit MIA in the past week, despite my return to the site, mainly because I’ve been on vacation. But there’s another reason I haven’t had the free time to sit and type: Brodinski.

But when I say “Brodinski,” I am actually not referring to the French DJ, but instead the dog who has been named after him. Yes, I broke down and got a puppy. In between Brodinski (the dog, not the DJ) trying to eat the keys on the computer and learning to poop and pee in the right spot (aka on the paper and NOT on the hardwood floor), blogging is a little bit hard. However, I’m back in the saddle and ready to do some damage (the good kind, of course).

Be on the lookout for more posts as well as the January podcast, as well as new features int he coming weeks. ALSO, please do not forget to RSVP for WERK! The Retail DJ 1-Year Anniversary Party. Come out and get your dance on.

Yes, indeed, Retail DJ has turned 1-year old. But after all this hard work, I certainly will not be celebrating alone. . .

I’ll be partying with the help of 8 friends, and you and yours are invited to come!

Join me on Thursday, 1/27/11 for a party you won’t forget:
