DEAD AIR BASS 009 (THAT WAS INTERESTING)

This month’s theme is “That was interesting”. If you think DAB has been boundary pushing in the past, wait til you hear what I’ve got planned for this one. I might even take it too far. Hahaaaa. We’ll see what happens



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CAROLINE AT HER SWEETEST

Any Bostonites in the build? This one is for you!

NEIL DIAMOND – SWEET CAROLINE

It’s one of histories greatest sing-a-long songs. Originally released in 1969, it was 44 years later, in 2013, that this single peaked in popularity. Because of its reputation as a crowd pleaser, Boston’s Fenway Park began playing the song, during Red Sox…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: DON’T YOU WANT THE HUMAN LEAGUE

If you’ve seen the YEAR 4 RELAUNCH post, you know exactly how excited I am about this new weekly feature.

THE HUMAN LEAGUE – DON’T YOU WANT ME

The story of THE HUMAN LEAGUE’s most prominent hit song, DON’T YOU WANT ME, is an almost romantic tale of unsuspected success. The song is…



MONTHLY MIXTAPE REVIEW: JAZZY JEFF @ THE DO-OVER L.A. (5.19.2013)

After JAZZY JEFF publically called out DVBBS for pretending to DJ, earlier this year, I really felt for the guy.

I mean, imagine if you spent the better part of your life creating and developing an art form, just to see it become completely bastardized. Here are these kids, getting paid amounts of money…



DKGL YEAR 4 – THE JUMPOFF!!!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that things have changed around here. DKGL has an exciting new, responsive layout to kick off Year 4. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and maybe even a little more grown up. Don’t go thinking I’ve gone all mature on you. This blog is still gonna be tonnes of fun.



QUICK MIX VAULT: SMOKE MARIJUANA & DREAMS COME TRUE

That’s a cheeky title. Ha! Welcome back to the QUICK MIX VAULT.

VATO GONZALEZ – GANJA RIDDIM

Dutch producer, VATO GONZALEZ makes a filthy ELECTRO contribution to my MARIJUANA MUSIC collection.

I chopped it down to a more manageable…



HEADUCATION: SOMEBODY TO LOVE THROUGH MULTIPLE GENERATIONS

You could argue, speculatively, that if not JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, it would have been THE GRATEFUL DEAD, or JANIS JOPLIN, that ended up being acquainted most strongly with the Hippy culture explosion of 1967, but due to perfect timing and commercially friendly POWER POP appeal, it was a song, titled SOMEBODY TO…



MOVIE MONDAYS: PHEROMONE HARVESTING, ULTIMATE FLASK, DANCING WITH ZOMBIES, & THE BEAT GOES ON

This month, I’ve got a wonderful variety of selections for you to enjoy. From the ubsurd, to the action packed, to the slightly disturbing. Monday = Funday!

MACHO MAN – THE BEAT GOES ON

Let’s start with something hilarious. There has never been, nor will there ever be, a wrestler that can spout coked up insanity on…



HEADUCATION: WHY PUNKS DON’T KNOW ABOUT ROACH MOTEL

In the early 80’s, Florida was a very uninteresting place. From sheer boredom, teenagers lashed out violently, which eventually led to a vibrant PUNK ROCK scene, with its own unique style and sound. But before anyone else was doing it, there was ROACH MOTEL.

ROACH MOTEL



MIXTAPE MONDAYS: DJ LORD – FREE MIX 1

There’s a virtual pile of amazing MIXTAPES sitting in my downloads folder. Naturally, it was tough to pick which one to feature for the first monthly MIXTAPE MONDAY post. I decided to go with something different from the DKGL norm. The following mix is not only the first HIP HOP set to be featured in…
