//GOLDEN East Meets West..

//For this month's GOLDEN we welcome two guest djs to the tables:

//DJ GRAVY - A wicked dancehall selecta, o.g. hip hop head, and all-around cool NYC cat. I highly recommend downloading his B.I.G. Tings a Gwan! mix right now, in which he flips Biggie vocals over dancehall riddims, juggling the Jamaican artists right alongside. And if you're ever in NYC check his Rice and Peas first Mondays monthly with Federation Sound's Max Glazer.

//MR.MENTION - Resident DJ at Overtime Fridays and Fiyah! Thursdays in San Diego, know about this homie. Also catch his mix with DJ Beatnick for Made Jewelry right here: MadeMix Vol.2.

//And don't forget, you can cop a free cd of my Devil's Pie Sade Tribute Pt.2 mix at GOLDEN this Saturday.. email to reserve a copy at ..1neLuv..

//Sade Tribute Pt.2 Mix ..

//Mixed by me, DJ Dmadness and recorded live at Devil's Pie Los Angeles on July 15, 2009. This is the sequel to the first Sade Tribute mix I did at Devil's Pie SF in February 2008 (online download here and cd copies here). Whereas the first mix was composed of all-vinyl selections including Sade favorites from all 4 of her classic LPs, 12" and 7" remixes... this second mix contains other album cuts, b-sides, songs interpolating and sampling Sade classics, hip-hop blends, house remixes and live blends. Much love and thanks to the fam who laced me with some of those songs, yall know who you are! I feel this is a worthy followup and companion to the first mix. Respect to Sade and look out for her new album which is supposedly coming November 2009!

Special thanks to Devil's Pie resident djs Phatrick and Roza for letting me do my thing and all the L.A. fam for coming out. If you're in Southern California I highly recommend checking out Devil's Pie next Wednesday night, August 19, at Verdugo Bar as they welcome guest dj and soul sista herself Kim Hill who will be throwing down a special Slum Village Tribute (RIP Baatin, RIP Dilla, long live T3).

Limited CD copies of this Devil's Pie Sade Tribute Pt.2 will be available Free at Devil's Pie L.A. Aug.19 and me & Zita's 3rd Saturday GOLDEN on Aug.15
