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:
      The Delta Project | Jay Fresh Vs Pretty Lights by thejayfresco

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:

Clash of the Legends; Momentum Generation

Didn't make it out to the North Shore this year but I've been watching the comps and spraying some mystic on my balls and it almost feels like I'm right there in the middle of all the action.  Even though I've seen bigger waves at El Porto on a tuesday in July, the actual idea of this year's Clash of the Legends at the Reef Hawaiian Pro was as good as it gets!  4 of my favorite Momentum Generation idols in the water at once, shralping Haleiwa for their stake at guts, glory, cheddar, and bragging rights until the next showdown.  Check out the clip below as my boy K Robb battles some hefty ankle biters against da boyz: Rossy, Shane-Do, and The Mob.  It's almost like watching The Show minus the greatest soundtrack of all time, classic skits, and umm oh yeah GOOD waves...

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:
Remixes by Goldroom

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!

The AMPAL Creative's FW 2011 Collection

Hat Hot off the press, The AMPAL Creative's new headwear line for their 2011 Fall/Winter collection is stunningly brilliant and physically some of the most comfortable hats ever worn!  As AMPAL puts it:
"Our Fall/Winter collection includes our bestselling snapbacks in a diverse range of premium winter textiles as well as a few new styles of headwear.  As always, we hand pick every material to ensure the highest quality."
With new creative twists on their classic snapbacks and a new array of unique yet Dope articles of headwear, their new line is not only guaranteed to have you steezin n' breezin for the beach & da clubs but it's sure to warm your head faster than any bottle of scotch could ever do!  It's hard to say which one I like the best out of the whole line but I've already gotten myself a Frothin and a REMINGTON and I sure as hell ain't gonna stop there!  Warning: SAH highly recommends you super glue your hat to your head immediately after purchase because bitches be like vultures and will try to steal these beauties right off your fucking skull!  Peep it:
All photos shot by the legendary Taylor Scott Dunfee, "these images are straight out of the camera and have not been photoshopped or digitally altered - a creative mind is always the best tool for the job." - AMPAL

Taylor Dunfee's 'Don't Lose Your Head' Art Show

Lsat Thursday I had the privilege of DJing at my homey Taylor Dunfee's art show entitled: "Don't Lose Your Head" at the White Gloss Gallery in DTLA for Art Walk.  Surrounded by amazing art, creative people, and happy faces; it was pretty evident that Taylor's art had a strikingly positive and inspiring effect on people once they entered the room and their eyes met his awesome works.  My buddy Junkyard did a great in-depth post  about the opening show on the MindTai site here, in the meantime check out some of the pics he snapped  and some pics by the artistĂ© himself:  Truly beautiful works of Art!

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!

MM: Daughter

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!
