We got mail (week 20)

May 14 2008

What up Discobelle people!?!? My name is Kyle Marxen aka VonMarxen aka I’ve got too many aliases to share. I was lucky enough to guest write We Got Mail this week. I’m supposed to write a little about myself…I’ll keep it short and sweet. I started off with dance music back in 2000 when I did some street teaming/learning the ropes with my DJ Pal/ Chicago house master (and best bro) Richie Heller, I got into concert promoting/ production in college, ended up as a touring bassist, and a tour manager all while dj’ing local college bars and parties. I now hold it down in Iowa doing two parties a week. I also drive a PIMP 1987 Ford Thunderbird.

So I had to pick some tracks and mixes from the Discobelle inbox.

To start we have a pretty dope remix from some dudes who call themselves Project Cyborg. I checked out their bio on their website and at their MySpace and all I can gather is that they like Batman and throwing parties (we have some stuff in common). They remixed the already killer track “Super Disco Breakin” by the Beastie Boys. Check it!

Next up we have a b-more track from EMYND. Heres what he has to say about it: “I’ve recently posted a new Bmore Club/Philly Party Music track that will be coming out on Emynd & Bo Bliz’s next EP on Flamin Hotz records this summer. It’s a club remix of the Blackbyrds “Rock Creek Park” and Diplo has been playing it a lot over the last 6 months. This version is mixed and mastered by DJA.”

Here´s a zShare to EMYND – Rock This Park

The dudes over at Souldrop sent over this mix of “A Milli” by Lil Wayne. I’m happy someone else out there is making a mix that isnt of “Lollipop” cause some of Lil Waynes lines in this song are PRICELESS. Dude cracks me right up! Also the production on this remix is top notch. Check it here!

Okay, I know I just said I was happy to get a non “Lollipop” mix of Lil Wayne, but this one came in that I really liked from The Kickdrums out of Ohio. The guitar is what really sells this track for me.

Switching Gears away from Weezy to probably my favorite track that came through. Immuzikation from Atlanta, GA put together Santogolds “L.E.S. Artistes” with D.A.N.C.E. He says “it’s taken me forever to figure out the right song for d.a.n.c.e. it’s never too late… ”

Here is the zShare:
Santogold – L.E.S. Artistes + Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (Original, Diplo Remix, Tittsworth Remix) = L.E.S. D.A.N.C.E.

I´ll finish up with 2 mixes.

First one comes from DJ Mentalcut who is Polish and proud. Dude DEFINITELY won me over by starting off his mix with the audio of that australian party kid that got famous through his hilarious Youtube video. (link to video)

Here´s what Mentalcut has to say about the mix: “Hey guys, Here’s my latest mix I’ve done for DJ Beware’s Radio FM4 show. Its going to be on air soon. I posted it on my blog, more than 300 people downloaded it, so I decided to give it to more blogs and message boards. It contains mainly of my remixes and blends…Hope you like it!”
