WHY I DON’T LISTEN TO FRENCH MUSIC

Okay. I think it’s time I explained my “NO FRENCHIES” rule that I’ve mentioned a couple times already here on Dead Kids. Before I go any further, I should explain that this has NOTHING to do with music from Quebec, which constantly pumps out fantastic music.

I listen to a LOT of music. Over the years,…



RIFOKI: HARDCORE ZOMBIE PUNK

RIFOKI is a Hardcore Punk side project of STEVE AOKI & SIR BOB CORNELIUS RIFO (aka THE BLOODY BEETROOTS).

Before they were DJs and producers, Steve Aoki and Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo were punk rockers. Rifoki is a return to their roots: hardcore punk, pure and…



Introducing the QUICK MIX VAULT

Life moves fast in Zombieland. We don’t have time for your 6 minute version. That’s why I spend lots of time editing down tracks to get to the point in 3 mins or less. QUICK HITTER edits are great for quick mixing DJs, so if that is YOU, check back here often for more chomped…

THIS RIGHT HERE IS A BABY MAKER

I’m not a big R&B guy, but I always love a really dirty tune. In NEIGHBOURS KNOW MY NAME, TREY SONGZ sings in traditional ballad style about filthy, rough sex. During which, his next-door neighbours are, well, “they be stressin’ while we sexin”. Hahahaaaaaa! I love how…



ZOMBIES HEART PARTY BREAKS!

Juuuust incase you don’t know what a party break is, here’s a brief description: A bootleg mega-mashup of familiar samples made for the purpose of hyping up a crowd.

Zombies love party breaks cuz when we come to party we do it up hype! And Party Breaks…



BDK FOREVER

Peter Moskalyk of Belladonnakillz has passed away.

I didn’t know Peter well but was lucky enough to have some conversations with him, to party with him, remix one of his tunes, and have him perform with me live at one of my shows. I also admired Peter and…



HEADUCATION: CHIC’S GOOD TIMES

Time to take it way back for a little bit of headucation…

Chic – Good Times

GOOD TIMES, by CHIC, is a 1979 disco jam that has become one of the most important songs in the history of dance music. No foolin’. Check out WIKIPEDIA’s history…



MIXTAPE: SEAN 2:16 – THE GRAPEVINE

A little about me and mixtapes before we get started. I spent over a decade studying the art of DJing. It is an art that, sadly, has pretty much been forgotten over the past few years. Technology and a new generation of partiers have made DJing almost obsolete as an art form. I, however, still…



Elocnep2

ELOCNEP MAKES THE BEETROOTS BANG EVEN HARDER

Okay here’s another acception to my NO FRENCHIES rule.

ELOCNEP is one of my favourite mashup artists. He takes big room bangers and smooshes them together creating something that is fresh and fun.

Earlier this year, he released an album of BLOODY BEETROOTS mashups. My favourite mash…
