DJ P- What's for Dessert?

The first time I heard of this guy was in 1999. It was at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco (last minute venue change if my memory serves correctly). Looking at the lineup of contestants, I was familiar with just about every one of them. Except for the DJ representing Tulsa, OK by the name of DJ P. I think the rest is history. DJ P made a name for himself this day. I remember watching Craze, A-Trak and the rest of the Allies literally get on their seats during P's set. By far, the most Original 6 minute set I've witnessed live.

To this mix...

This is P's first attempt at the "mind-numbing" top 40 BS we hear (heard) all day every day. Recorded in 2000 (pre-serato), P shows off his unique style on this mix. You have heard all the tracks put on this mix.

Pete Rock innnnn Controllllll

soul Brotha numero uno here with a late 80's radio mix. The show "In control; Rap Show" on 107. 5 WBLS hosted by Marley Marl. 10-11-1988 to be exact. This 43 minute mix is full of now classic hip hop tracks as well as some classic breaks- K-Solo, Epmd, Special Ed, Cheryl Lynn, BPD, etc full of doubles, scratching and clean mixing. Gives you sad comparison with what's going on with current mainstream radio.

Flava of the Month

Flava of the Month is a party that the bay's Triple Threat dj's (Apollo, Shortkut and Vinroc) throw at Milk on Haight St., hosted by the hypest hype man in the yay, Fran Boogie. This Mix is one of my favorite, if not my favorite triple threat mix. But, I think it gets overlooked by the general public and their fans. This was recorded live in September of 2003 at the themed party. All disco, all funky, all good music.

You'll hear tracks from the likes of Kano, the Jacksons, Chic, Mcfadden & Whitehead, Indeep, Young & Co., etc....
