DJ DIRECT

DJ DIRECT (Drai’s – Las Vegas)

Next up we have DJ Direct’s first edit pack on 2000Down.  I’ve known Terrence since the late 90s before he moved to Vegas and the homie had my back since the days when DJs only played vinyl.  Nowadays he’s rocking all over Vegas and beyond and holds down the cities #1 after-hours every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Direct’s edits are a little different than what your used to, they’re called quick drops and they are meant to be scratched in or dropped in at the right time to build energy or change tempo.  Grab this exclusive edit pack and get linked to all of Direct’s networks here -

2000Down Exclusive: Interview with founder DJ ISAAC JORDAN

   You can find traces of DJ Isaac Jordan in just about every major city in the United States and abroad. Where he hasn’t landed, his music certainly has. A deft part-rocking DJ and holder of many frequent flyer miles, you’d never get ‘superstar DJ vibes’ emanating from Issac’s warm smile and humble but witty candor. In addition to shaking dance-floors from coast-to-coast, he is one of the most respected creators of multi-genre DJ-friendly edits and remixes. His catalog of custom DJ edits, over a thousand deep and growing each day, have been supported by fellow tastemakers DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Irie  and Z-Trip to name just a few. He is the founder of a well-trafficked DJ music blog, 2000Down, which has featured exclusive content from DJ Vice, DJ Scene, Sat1 and Victor Menegaux among others. He dedicates what little spare time he has to producing remixes and original content geared towards the forward-thinking club DJ.    A soccer aficionado with a penchant for the tasty, fresh and organic, Isaac’s most ‘filling’ pastime revolves around cooking and eating locally grown gourmet delights.  Loved by his contemporaries and respected by the OG’s, Isaac Jordan is one of the most humble, hard-working and talented professional DJ’s I know, and I’m grateful to consider him a friend. In his own words…Who are you, where are you from, and what do you rep?Isaac.  Philadelphia. Avocados, 2000Down + SET Artist Management.You’ve been gigging like crazy these days. Every time I text you you’re in a different time zone haha! Can you give us an idea of what your touring schedule is like?Currently I have 4 nights in Philly and 5 nights in NYC per month.  I hold quarterly residencies in Atlantic City […]

Mixtape Monday: Wood-n-Soo Best of 2013, Ta-Ku’s Drive Slow, Homie and Nick Bike’s choice cuts of 2013

Wood’n'Soo – 2013 Mix Tape It’s funky, it’s dubby, it’s disco colliding with hip-hop drenched in soul and it sounds like that one party you didn’t get invited to but desperately wish you had attended. I feel like Wood’n'Soo exist in some alternate Canadian universe where you can still bust out scratch routines and appeal to the repressed inner-bboy/bgirl within us without some annoying masochist GM giving you ‘the eye’ every time you play a song that’s not billboard charted. For real though, I feel like rocking a bubble-vest and striking a pose in that nu-skool ‘jet grind radio’ meets the post-millennial warehouse rave B-Boy stance for Instagram while listening to this.TL,DR?IT’S REALLY AWESOME. LISTEN TO THIS MIX. This is music for the cyberkenetic revolution. Tracklist over on Soundcloud.Follow Wood n Soo:Facebook    Twitter: @DJ_Wood | @DJ_SOO+Ta-ku – Drive Slow, Homie You’re not on the Ta-Ku bandwagon yet?Where have you been? This mix is by no means “new” but it really delivers that abstract, laid back bass/trap vibe finely meshed w. some deep jersey club type stuff.  Like the fine gentlemen of Das Racist once said….   Tracklist and DL via SC. VIBES, Yall.Follow: @TaKuBeats+I won’t insult your intelligence by doing a write-up for this mix. If you know @DJNICKBIKE, you already know it’s full of dope tracks and smooth blends from nearly every genre under the sun.  I’d describe Nick as a tastemaker and heartbreaker – although I’ve only really had experience with the former.  Pause. What?Tracklist and DL via SC.Def give it a once-over, I’d bet anything there are gems on here that escaped your radar since you probably spend the time you’re supposed to be organizing crates lurking on 2dopeboyz and trolling […]

Big Jacks: Private Stock

Toronto’s Big Jacks has been steadily putting in work.  He’s one of my favorite party-rockin’ DJ’s in the GTA and he’s also an incredibly talented producer.  We’ve featured him in the past, and we hope to do so in the future!His latest project, Private Stock revisits a host of millennial rap classics featuring original production and cuts by Big Jacks.  This project stood out to me for several reasons.  First off, the quality is consistent with the quantity – 18 tracks of banging beats and rap-a-long verses from Clipse, UGK, Slim Thug, Rozay, Kanye, and others.  Second, the production is not only on-point, in-key, and crispy, it’s diverse.  From soulful sample-based beats to 80′s funk, synth-heavy RnB nostalgia, and full blown orchestral sounds, it’s engaging and moving. Every tracks is a head-nodder and his use of samples/quotes from classic films like Superfly is a nod to the golden era nexus of funk, soul, and hip-hop culture I can’t seem to get enough of.  Lastly – you can tell this was a labor of love.  Hip-Hop aficionados, DJ’s, and people who dig good music will appreciate this.   Don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself!  Follow: @BIGJACKS | Soundcloud | Facebook::::::Q & A w.
