Again: as a dj im about 1) does song serve the party 2) is it effective? ——none of these songs are “my favorite”—I’m not a fan of “big event singles” I like quirky weird stuff. So I guess I better do the antidote of songs I actually LOVE that may clear the floor but I love anyway Aight no particular order @NickWaterhouse gonna stop playin w my feelins’ & get this jawn on streaming services—-the claps are ignint & I love when claps are off (fun fact: whenever I’m at @nbcsnl i sit in audience & throw the end song claps off. Funkier.

as a dj i’m on the other side so I’ll give you my 10 “Spike the Punch” in no order (songs that I know will get “OMG!!! I can’t go home this my song!” If strategically placed right and I cannot stress that enough. Djs know the right songs but it’s HOW you the build drama. “Pony” is usually my closer. Every 2 hour gig has 10 OMG songs. Amateurs will just play all the hits and wear mofos out first 30 songs and now you got an empty dance floor cause you just HAD to start w Break My Soul 🤣🤣😂😂 and people really only have plans to jam for 25 mins

@In_A_YamChele Can’t believe I’m sharing this, but pre pandemic I coulda counted the times on one hand I’ve cried in my adult life. Which is basically the same as saying “I only took a piss 4 times in the last 20 years. That isn’t healthy (mentally/physically) (1) @In_A_YamChele Most black people (especially my generation x era) were raised in fight or flight——which is why we stick to “survive!” “Fight to the finish!” “Everyday I’m hustlin!” Troupes. My dad was especially of the drill sgt age of showing ZERO feelings

I love the science of comedy. Comedy nerds know that the one step beyond #TheAristcrats was the time Norm Macdonald decided to commit to doing a kitschy mediocre roast for Bob Saget. It was beyond trolling. all of his jokes came from the 50’s punchline standup era of comedians you’d see in the Catskills in Dirty Dancing. Any other craftsman woulda instantly *WINK*d or gave some sort of “in on the joke/I’m bombing on purpose” signal.

Y’all can eye roll all y’all want about kids throwing the great parts of y’all’s history away….but y’all have a responsibility to see music AS crucial as food: by 7? Your kids show know all cultures/music genres/films/art & places in the world NOT their zip code I guarantee you a majority of all the problematic adults in the world can be traced to the first 7 years treatment. Y’all let kids listen to anything in a way that would horrify you if it was food: sugar is awesome, but 4 year old me running to cabinet downing a pint of it? 🤔

I get the sentiment of the story but it’s also slanted: latimes.com/entertainment-… it’s making it like Daft Punk just robbed a homeless musician for naught. It also reinforces the stereotype that sampling isn’t an art or this pillage act in which acts don’t pay to sample The real culprit in the sampling controversy always lies with the invisible middlemen who acquire (sometimes legally) dormant catalogues that are up for grabs. Those who operate this way are also super litigious—-they will cop a grip of songs (all those local mom & pop labels)

@MikeSegalov I told this story in #MoMetaBlues but it belongs here for the peeps who don't know me. I get a call from Prince's people saying he is throwing a rollerskating jam in "2 hours or so" & "invite some cool people" its 2/14/06 at midnight. normal people are in bed @MikeSegalov I happened to be at a concert in LA backstage & was surrounded by notable celebs. entire room scoffed at me like "how dare you invite me to a midnight rollerskating party w Prince you peon!" all except one.....

A thread response part preface warning to people who come to my gigs without pre conceived expectations on what I should or shouldn't play. this is gonna be a long one. I never try to indulge in individual clapbacks cause I HATE lynchmob social media occurrences when someone with a couple of hundred/thousand followers feels the need critisize my work. and then my defenders speak on my behalf. but I am petty and rarely like to explain myself

Ok a short thread. Once heard a rumor of @Bourdain oustin a chef for rockin #BillyJoel in the kitchen. Of course i was like “that is a ridiculous musical crime (I once dumped a potential girl I was into cause she didn’t see what the big deal in Prince was) he thought i agreed lol I meant the crime of hating Joel’s music! He said “my kitchen/my rules” —i thought he was joking. He wasn’t. Mofo posted a sign in the kitchen banning Joel’s music from being played In the kitchen
