George Benson - Give Me The Night (SAH Re-Froth)

Greetings from the road!  Tour life has been freaking Sahhh Epic thus far and I've only just begun!  The main purpose of The 2011 SAHdomy Tour is not only to froth peoples faces off but also to celebrate the latest Re-Froth releases.  As you may very well know, the first Re-Froth was non other than the legendary Mr. Luther Vandross' track entitled I wonder (SAH Re-Froth).  As time progressed and as my soul yearned for more and more, I upgraded my drum kit thanks to Mr. Viceroy's local knowledge, and took a stab at a classic disco sample.  It is with froth and pleasure that I present to you my second Re-Froth entitled: George Benson - Give Me The Night (SAH Re-Froth)!

This Re-froth channels the inner funky froth inside of my soul while the tempo from the last Re-Froth has taken a slight leap and is sure to get your booty bangin whether you're clubbin' or nubbin'!  As mastered by my mate >icknick< and artwork done by the talented Mr. Po of The Ampal Creative (found on Pistols & Lipstick) this Re-Froth is yours to download for FREE once I reach 807 Likes on my Facebook Page!  Until then friends, enjoy it loud and froth it proud!

The 2011 SAHdomy Tour

Froth levels are through the roof!
My time to take Frothing to a global level has finally come!  I got a call about a month ago from a big agency saying that Trojan was apparently keeping tabs on me and liked the way my pubic hair blows in the wind when I DJ.  As such, they threw down a Tour offer that was too good to refuse!  100 Countries in 200 days (including but not limited to: the US, Colombia, Chino Hills, Bratislava, and the World's FIRST Underwater DJ Set), free profos for life, and a Country Club Forty at every venue I play.

Along with this great news, I've also decided to release my 2nd Re-Froth entitled: George Benson - Give Me The Night (SAH Re-Froth) and will give it out for free 320 download once my Facebook Page reaches 807 likes!  The Re-Froth will hit the streets soon but in the meantime, my bags are packed, my DJing hand is preserved in a bullet proof glass can chalk full of Re-Froths, and in no time, I'll be on my merry way.  Check out the promo vid with more info and tour dates below and cruise out to a gig or two in SAHport of the Froth and the Foam!

It Was All A Dream, I Used To Read Surfer Magazine...

It was the summer of 2003, SaffrSnax aka The Butcher and I were sophomore groms frothing at the bit when we got the call...  

Two spots had opened up on what would normally be a 3 year waiting list, it was now or never, pull the trigger or forever dream of what it would be like to experience the Dreamland that is the Island better known as Tavarua, Fiji.  Without hesitation, we booked the trip, packed our bags, and got there in the blink of an eye.  Once on the island, we surfed our brains out to the point where we'd have to take 6 ibuprofen just to be able to walk in the afternoons.  Life was good on the Island Life was perfect on the Island.  With nothing more than a bed, a fan, and a toilet inside our Bures; anything more seemed excessive in comparison to life's greatest pleasure that lay in our backyard; the perfect pealing lefts of Cloudbreak & Restaurants aka "Straunts".    

After 10 days of Cloudbreak all to ourselves and no more than 10 other people, we were convinced we had died and gone to heaven.  Although some of the veterans on the trip informed us that our swell period was somewhat sub-par to the level of perfection that the Island is capable of, in our minds we had surfed some of the best waves in our lives and nobody could take that away from us, nobody.

Our last day on the Island was bitter sweet, almost like all those times your mom had to pry your hands off of your favorite video game just as you were about to beat the final level...  Our last session saw a rising swell that went from waist to chest to overhead within an hour and didn't seem to stop growing as we were forced to get out of the water and rush to our flight back home.  As we sat on the flight, our minds filled with slide shows of green rooms, kava, and racing sections; no amount of magical cookies or sleeping pills could set our minds at ease.  We had tasted the forbidden fruit and we yearned for more...

By the time we got back to California, my inbox had a message from the trip leader stating that the swell had grown and Cloudbreak was too big to surf, Straunts was simply perfect, and Rights was pretty damn good too.  Whether or not I should have read that email will remain uncertain but one thing's for sure, the Island of Tavarua will forever be etched in my mind as a place where unparalleled happiness can be achieved with nothing more than a surfboard and some wax...

Myrt Mondizler: Lana Del Rey

Highly influenced by the glitz & glamour of The Old Hollywood, singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey derives her name from a combo of Lana Turner and the Ford Del Rey.  Her tune entitled "Video Games" gives off a somewhat eerie and nostalgic sensation and seemingly yearns for a time when the motion picture industry was booming and guys like Jimmy D and the Rat Pack were walking Kings among men; the video is nothing short of brilliant.  With a voice like a dove and steez like Betty Grable, it ain't no surprise that this myrt is a star on the rise...

Jay Fresh - The Delta Project

Recently I've been expanding my horizons and diversifying my music a lot more than normal; so when my homey Court (P & LS) sent over some hip hop jams, I was amping to get such a roots treat!  Her buddy Jay Fresh is a hip hop artist comin out of the indie music scene in Dallas, TX and is sportin some mad beats and sick flows.  Recently, Jay collaborated with Pretty Lights on a project entitled: The Delta Project; a musical collaboration filled with Pretty Lights instru-MENTALs and fresh Jay Fresh flows.  Check out some of da killa jamz in the project below:

If that wasn't enough, Jay also just released a video for his track entitled "Amazing" that features a nostalgic feel of groms doin what groms do best; skating & causing trouble!  The vid takes me back to the days when we'd run to the beach (rain or shine), surf our brains out, get picked up by our babysitters/parents, and then creep the streets looking for the closest thing to cop a feel to...

With a mind full of creative flows and a bag full of tricks, it's a no-brainer that Jay Fresh is goin places!  SAH-Port Jay Fresh and his musical talents here:

Tuneage: Viceroy + Goldroom

It's been a hot minute since I've posted some good tunage on here and I figured it was about time I shared some goodies with you all.  First up is the SF mate Viceroy who you may all remember from the legendary day down at the Standard this summer or the Blow Up party in SF.  Viceroy's only been frothing in the NuDisco/80s-Synth game for less than a year now and he's already left quite the heavy mark.  With over 24 groovy tracks under his belt and remixes that have seen the likes of over 270K plays, it's pretty evident that VIceroy's making waves comparable to Mavericks or Jaws!  One of my favorite Viceroy tracks ever is entitled: "Sunny Daze" and is just one of those songs that no matter where you are in the World or what season it is, it's summer just as long as the track is playing!  Check out his latest EP entitled "Sunburn" below and froth the night away till your skin starts peeling:

Sunburn EP + Bonus Remix by VICEROY

Next up is an LA based mate DJ/Producer who goes by the name of Goldroom who was also part of the wildness that was No Shirt / No Shoes this summer!  Goldroom has been on an absolute tear lately pumping out dance-floor Bangers one right after another.  Recently, his remix of Gigamesh's track entitled "Red Light" has taken the World by storm while also catching the eye of Legendary Producer/DJ The Magician who featured it as his first track in Magic Tape 16 (for those of you not electro-savvy, this is equivalent along the lines of getting the cover shot in Surfer Mag).  Ontop of that, his latest remix for Niki & The Dove is steadily growing popularity and is currently sitting at number 3 on hypem (heart it HERE to help it reach #1).  Check out some of his latest below and see for yourself why he's got the Golden touch:

If you're in the LA area Tomorrow Night, be sure to stop by the Avalon for Control and check out the Honey Lounge where both Viceroy (Vitalic Noise) and Goldroom will be DJing along with Binary legends: Fabian and Short Circuit!

Duran Duran - Girl Panic! dir by Jonas Akerlund

It's never too late to have two Myrtle Mondays in one day, although the following video could suffice for a years worth of Myrtle Mondays; it's just that fucking good!  The legendary Duran Duran is at it again and this time they've cooked up an extremely spicy music video for their new single entitled "Gril Panic!" from their new album 'All You Need Is Now'.  As you may very well know, the band has been known to be one of the very first to add super-models into their music videos, and their latest is no exception.

In true Duran Duran style, they hired a legendary director (Jonas Akerlund), sprinkled in a few attractive females, wait, wait, wait!!!  Not just a "few attractive females", the video stars 5 of the most well known super models of our era who you just might very well know.  Does: Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Eva Herzigoa, or Yasmin Le Bon ring a bell?  If not, you might as well just go chop your wang n' scrot' off and feed 'em to the birds.   Anywhoo, enough with the chit chat, go grab a beer and prepare for the best 9 minutes of your life…

Wait, where's the band?

Luther Vandross - I Wonder (SAH Re-Froth)

Oi lads, lords, and myrts!
After quite the glorious DJ bender this summer where frothing soared to new heights; Fall & Winter came quicker than me and my first cougar encounter of the third kind!  As the water gets cold, the pool freezes over, and I slowly turn into an albino, I've decided to give a stab at producing.

Fresh off the Traktor boat, and Just off the Ableton Jet, I've decided to start things off with a re-work that intends to transport you back to a time when myrts, shneeks, synth, and beats ran as free as Larry Bird at a Big & Tall store.  I'm talkin about the 80's man!

It is with much pleasure & froth (of course) that I present to you my first "re-work" entitled: Luther Vandross - I Wonder (SAH Re-Froth),  I found a gem of a sample belonging to the legendary Mr. Vandross and spiced it up a bit for the modern dance floor.  With plenty of added synth, claps, fx, samples, and cow bell to keep you grooving till, well, the cows come home, I hope you dance, froth, and have as much fun experiencing this Re-Froth as I did making it!

Sometimes it's nice to leave the turn tables at the club and get back to da indie roots.  Elena Tonra of Daughter is definitely no exception to these roots.  With a poetic indie undertone on most of her tracks plus a comfortably haunting voice that almost reminds me of Regina Spektor meets Marina & The Diamonds; her tunes are a nice retreat on gloomy days, chilly nights, and most particularly the nights you get lucky and the mornings that they're still there…

Ke11y Slater's 11.5th World Title

Can you imagine what it would be like if your whole life you thought your Birthday was on April 20th but then some rando informs you that it's actually on the 21st?  Or what if Publisher's Clearing House came to your lad pad with a check for 150K, busted down your door, threw animal balloons in your face, and had Chris Hanson sit you down only to find out that the check was made out to your neighbor?  The list of jokes could go on about Ke11y Slater's 11th and 11.5th World Title and the unfortunate miscalculation that now makes us surfers look way more stoopider than we already are...

November 6th, a brisk Sunday in the Bay, I was frothing in my snow boots trying to get my lurk on at Rip Curl's 7th Official Search Contest.  Only needing to win one more heat to Officially clench his 11th World Title, the pressure was on for King Slates as he set froth forth to shred against up-and-coming super groms: Miguel Pupo and Gabriel "Funky Cold" Medina (the eventual winner of the comp).  As the three set to the sea, people from far and wide flocked to the water's edge to witness the official crowning of Ke11y's 11th World Title, this time fo reals...

As you can see, the competition was fierce but the uber groms (who were probably soiling themselves in their nighties by the time Kelly was getting his 8th World Title) were no match to Slater's backside floats, frontside hacks, and a barrell just after the buzzer that proved yet again why Kelly is hands down the best surfer that ever lived and put to rest any jokes about his initial Title Fart Farce.  Rightfully so, Kelly was re-crowned and the masses frothed harder in amazement than they ever have before...

From Curren's' generation to the momentum generation, Andy's generation to the new wave Dane x Jordy generation, and now the John John x Kolohe x Medina grom generation - Kelly has straight up schooled, fooled, ruled, and ridiculed beyond any comparison; and it doesn't seem like he's planning on leaving his empire of dominance any time soon!  It is with much pride, respect, and froth that I'd like to congratulate the 11 Time World Champion: Kelly freaking Slater on his feats, his dominance, and his perseverance throughout his entire career!  Hats off to you mate!

Tropicool x SAH this Friday in the GDD Room

This Friday in the Gotta Dance Dirty Room of The Avalon (next to the main stage) the filthy frother better known as Tropicool and I will be laying down one of the nastiest tag teams since Tango and Cash had their way with Debbie from Dallas.  We'll be squirting out tunes from 10 to 12 in the GDD room while the 80's-vibe Legend who goes by Grum along with Miami Horror DJs will be ripping it up on the main stage; surely a night not to miss! 

Ontop of this madness, Friday night will mark the release of my first ever Re-Froth/"Remix" of a certain 80's Classic that I've been working on the past few days.  The re-froth shall only be heard once during my set and then it will be deleted, torched, and burnt forever!  Well, not exactly, but Friday will be the first day you'll be able to see and hear it live before it goes up on my Soundcloud the next week.  So be one of the first, the few, and the proud to shake your booty on a history making or breaking night!
