QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 008 (PLAY RECORDS)

What a monster pack this one is. I absolutely adore the PLAY RECORDS label, and I’ve had the honour of working with label boss, MELLEEFRESH, and other artists from the roster on various projects over the years. Now, I’ve got the OK to feature 10 of my own QUICK HITTER edits of songs from…



QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 007 (P#$%Y)

This year’s DIRTY V-DAY special was all about THE 8—D. Far be it from me to ignore an entire gender, so to balance things out, here’s a QUICK HITTER 10 PACK of filthy, BOOTY dance jams, produced by some of the who’s who of dirty dance music, on a subject…



DEAD AIR BASS 36 (CLASSIC HOUSE – ALL VINYL) ((SEPTEMBER 2016))

As promised, it’s gonna be a second HOUSE MUSIC episode, and this time around, I’d like to return to the classics. Not only am I dropping an hour of CLASSIC HOUSE, but I’m also doing it in a classic way. Every song in the broadcast is coming off VINYL from my very…



ELECTRIC STAR PRODUCTIONS – DANCE NIGHT ’95 PROMO MIXES

An explosive new force is bubbling up from the underground, in Toronto, this summer. ELECTRIC STAR PRODUCTIONS (ESP) is a collective of veteran DJs coming together to throw exceptional events and people are taking notice.



QUICK MIX VAULT: DKGL QUICK HITTER PACK 003 (90s)

I asked the people what the theme of the next QUICK HITTER 10 PACK should be and it was unanimous: 90s TUNES!!!

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: NITRO DELUXE & PROTECTING OUR PIONEERS

I’m not sure exactly how we’d go about it, but I feel like we really need to take care of our ground breaking musical pioneers. So often, they end up passing away with nothing to show for their ventures except a lifetime of hardship. I hope that no other artist, who has made a significant…



DEAD AIR BASS 021 (THE 90s) ((March 2015))

I’m taking it back to the ollllskoooolll with a full hour of some of my most beloved 90s jams. This show is gonna be highly unconventional for DI, and it won’t be for everyone, but if you love The 90s, like I do, you’re gonna go bonkers when you hear it.

Here’s a little tid bit of info you might find interesting…

I NEVER GET SICK

Okay, not literally never, but I honestly can’t remember the last time I was ill, hangovers aside, which I will often claim as sickness to avoid judgement. Ha! But I only see my doctor once every few years, and I…



***THE DEAD ART OF DJING*** a rant by Gobs

Prior to 2011, I had been considering a career move to full-time DJ more and more. I had a great day job that prevented me from touring, and it was a very tough decision to quit that job, but in late 2011, with some positive reinforcement from my agent, I finally said goodbye to the…



THROWBACK THURSDAYS: ODB, THE FOLK HERO OF HIP-HOP

There’s so much that can be said about OL DIRTY BASTARD that it’s nearly impossible to narrow it into a manageable article of highlights. Instead, I’ll just focus on a couple main points to sum up one of the most interesting figures in the history of music.
