R.I.P Disco D

Jan 23 2007

Everybody was talking about that wicked beat on 50 Cent’s album, so when I heard that Disco D made “Ski Mask Way” I knew I had heard that name before. I went through my record collection and found his album “A Night at the Booty Bar” from 2003. That booty album is one of the best I have ever listened to. Straight fire so I was really happy that this was from the same dude. After “Ski Mask Way” we couldn’t get enough of him, Spank Rock, Braza, Yelle, Trick Daddy and much more. And that Arnold Schwarzenegger video! That was fucking genius.

We got a chance talk to him when he was in Malmö for a gig. We interviewed him for our radio show and I think we asked one question and then he talked for 20 minutes straight. He was so into his stuff that he could have talked about it forever.

We will miss him.

Braza – Son do Braza (zShare)

Spank Rock – Get it on the floor (zShare)

Trick Daddy – Shut up (Disco D remix) (zShare)

Yelle – Je Veux Te Voir (Disco D remix) (zShare)

Disco D – No More (Ski Mask Way original)

    Saturday is D-Day at The Rumble.

    I found him a kind person and a talanted producer and dj.
    He was the first guest at The Rumble:s current location.

    Jag vill börja med att säga att jag har fortfarande inte kunnat smälta att Disco D är död. Jag vill bjuda in er som också tyckte om hans musik att höra mitt “hyllnings/minnes-set” till Disco D på Rival ikväll.
    Info följer nedan:

    Välkommen till Rival vid Mariatorget på Fredag 26/1, Fri Entré.

    Mellan 22-02 står jag bakom dom stora hjulen av stål och servar med tunga prylar. Westcoast/Bay Area/Texas/New Orleans Rap från 90-talets mitt, Electrofunk, 80s grooves, Freestyle & Miami Bass.

    jag kommer även att hedra den talangfulla DJn/Producenten Disco D, vars liv släcktes alldeles för tidigt.
    Så åtminstone en halvtimme med strictly ghettoshit från Disco D blir det även.
    Må han vila i frid.

    Med dessa ord tackar jag för nu och låter musiken tala för sig – fredag kväll alltså!

    Bass’t Regards

    Diz is so sad.
    Saw him at the Silo in Leuven Belgium. Listened to his records en and danced my ass off on his beats.
    And verry right indeed , you inspired many people!

    Wish you all the booty you can get, we will miss you.
    peace out
    R.I.P.
