Dj Arbie Won ChukkaMix

This is a short quickmix i made last sept for Vans..some Lupe,Major Lazer,Dam Funk and more steady music.

download it!


Looking at my old stash of cd's i found this old track of mine way back 1999.I think first time i posted this track was in (now history) this track is special coz' this was my first real attempt on a straight instrumental track, all done on the mpc, and this was when i thought of the name Beatraveler.I also had a side project back then called "Golem Soundsystem", doing big beat and dance stuff.This one though is kinda like a homage to all my downtempo influences like Krush, Mo'Wax, Shadow records and Smash. I sampled the intro from some native filipino instruments,i imagined it like a scene, with the natives playing their instruments, and seeing the galleons for the first time.

This one never fails on the dancefloor.80s crowd,hipster crowd,college crowd,hiphop crowd,house crowd... this is one of those universal body movers you need to have always on your crate. Of course besides having the bucketheads version that really blew up here in the 90's (streetboys anyone?)

Here's a rare live clip version..With Peter Cetera pre-karate kid days..

So nice i got to post it twice..

Dj Hero 4: Grandmaster Flash

Here's a rare footage of the Flash talkin about scratching on national tv..all you aspiring dj's out there y'all might learn something here...back in the days there wasnt no dj youtube or dj schools then to learn how to spin..we used to go to shows and parties to how watch the dj's and learn something from them..then there's also the dmc vhs tapes we used to pass around the crew..
NOTE: I saw Flash on LAX this year and i know a lot of people hated on his set,(same as when A-trak and Spinbad was here) but as a dj, the reason you were booked in the 1st placed was to rock the crowd and keep them orderin at the cant just play for that 7% of the true heads who were there waiting for him to play all old school(some of them wasnt even orderin hehe)...of course he has to mix it up,read the crowd,take em on a journey or sumthin....A lot of people dont know that mixing genres wasnt new,but it's a New York style, originated by Herc,Bambataa and Flash..they'll play something from Blondie,to Sex Pistols,to some UK house and back to Atcq...

ASUS NX90 Launch tonight@ Amber The Fort

Ok tonight we're throwing a hoopla for Asus at Amber for the launch of their new "desktop replacement"laptop called the NX90..I've been using it the past 5 days and been really getting a lot of attention from fellow dj's and producers..Well 1st of all is it's appearance..20inch screen,all aluminum body designed by the folks from Bang and Olufsen..the built in speakers is so loud you dont need them external speakers anymore..

then the specs..the one im using is the top of the line model meaning 1tb hdd,6gb memory,quad core and blue ray drive..not to mention the 1gb video memory..(It was a breeze analyzing those mp3 files i've transferred!) Its too bad i have to bring this beast to gigs,coz with this power it really belongs to the studio,or a fixed set up..But its part of a club tour we're doing for Asus,so if you wanna see it in action,head on to Amber tonight and check it out..We're also giving away the exclusiv mixtape i did for Asus.

Have turns,will travel.

Went down south for some roadtrippin relaxin and diggin along the way..

The best bulalo i've ever tasted!!

Debut album of Nicoletta! Arranged by Michel Colombier.
