Snoop Dogg & KiD CuDi - That Tree (tha 1 who Trevs remix feat. K-0TiC Couture)

Yup yup yup, entered another remix competition! With this track, I sped it up just a little to 108 BPM, a tempo that's getting a lot of attention these days what with Dave Nada's invention of Moombathon, which is Dutch house slowed down to reggaeton tempo. So my mix share some of those characteristics of deep bass and tropical rhythms, and lots of 808 tom drums!

And of course it's all rounded out by K-0TiC Couture's guest verse; if you haven't checked him out yet, you can follow him on twitter @MisterCouture. His latest mixtape is dropping May 11!

With this handy little widget seen below, you can listen to our remix as well as hear what it sounded before I got my hands on it, and you can even vote for it right there with that button! Voting is open until May 21st, but you may as well get it out of the way now, right?

It features my homie K-0TiC Couture who you should definitely check out if you haven't already. I've got a bit to say about this track but I might wait until polls close to say it! and I'll also be posting it on SoundCloud and YouTube eventually but for now you hafta go over here to listen to it and vote!

Rusko, on fire

I still remember the first poster I saw for a Rusko show in Toronto... I don't remember where it was, but I remember it was on a small black and white sticker and happened I think in April of 2008, and that even though I saw it everywhere for a while I still managed to miss that show.

I haven't passed up my past two opportunities though, and through my internship with Mad Decent I shot some video to share with y'all. The Mod Club show in October was definitely massive, and I have a three-camera shoot of it sitting on some DV tapes - I unfortunately do not have the time right now to edit or even capture that footage.

What I do have is a few choice clips from his appearance at The Social last March. Yes, the sound system blew out (something about faulty UK power converters, I heard) but he still rocked it - cueing tunes off his laptop while playing along with an MPD32 and live bass guitar! It's uncut/edited video, and amped up on the brightness/contrast to help compensate for the dark environment of The Social, but it's still a great shot of dude's performance style, so enjoy!

And if you're in Toronto this Saturday, get ready for this times a hundred (or technically times 14.682, venue capacity wise) when he comes to Sound Academy with Krazy Baldhead and a bunch of great local DJ/producers for the launch of Embrace's Digital Saturdays.
