Miami Nighlife Exchange Sat Nov 27

SMIRNOFF announces that on November 27, 2010, Miami will receive the best of London’s nightlife culture as part of The Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Projecta one-of-a-kind global experience in which 14 countries pair up to exchange crates containing the best of each country’s nightlife. In turn, London will receive the best of Miami’s homegrown nightlife.

Continuing on a mission to inspire and enable unique experiences, the Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange Project has uncovered the best of global nightlife, and will now celebrate the outcome when two very different cultures collide to create something extraordinary. A community of more than 125,000 people from across the country submitted suggestions for what best characterizes nightlife in the U.S – from fashion trends and musical styles to locally inspired cocktails – via Facebook ( Once all of the suggestions were in, DJ Irie, the U.S. curator and Miami Nightlife expert, selected the ones that best represented Miami’s vibrant and varied nightlife. These ingredients will now be packed into a crate for London to experience when the world swaps nights in an epic finale on November 27th.

SX Buddies Episode 3: Keys N Krates

Having been in Seattle last March I missed Keys N Krates
& had to spend all last year wondering what the buzz was about...

...after playing a boat party with them Wednesday, I'm officially a fan.
You should be too. Check their new release here for free.
Peep them at their blog,

Canadians bringing the heat for sure.

SX Buddies Episode 2: Wants vs Needs

My first night of SX was spent getting the Wants v. Needs DJ's
wasted for Espada's birthday...

Apparently Slyce had to scoop them up at Whataburger via 3AM cab
after his gig, which pretty much makes 'em Austinites by default.
It's good to know we're not the only geek 2x4 out there.

Peep So Gold's electrosexiness & Espada's funk-flexibles at their blogspot:

SX Buddies Episode 1: Neil Armstrong

Still getting back my bearings from SX. What a week.
Hard to believe a whole week ago I was opening for Jay-Z Tour DJ...

...Neil Armstrong (who was both superchill & eloquent, by the way.)

MG: I think so, maybe; why?

suddenly turn their heads & try to wrap their heads round Flying Lotus, I think.
Is that wrong?
MG: What?
Digg: To risk possibly clearing the dancefloor for the sake of artistic integrity at peak hour?
(short pause)
MG: Sometimes, you gotta say f*ck the crowd, bro.
The new site's up & the gear is as grounded as it is on point.

New Monthly!

This should be little interesting. Only got 1 hour of practice with players. Let's see what happens on stage!

Enter Marcus Swagger & Couch Potato Ent

Spending 4-5 nights a week downtown for 10 years introduces you to some interesting personalities (to put it diplomatically)...enter Marcus Swagger.

Amongst the most lovable of madmen, Marc will grill u the steak of your life & pour you a Scotch with a smile as he undoes your girlfriend's bra in front of you & you kind of have to laugh it off.

He & main man Andy wet their feet in the Promo game last fall pulling off successful events including the Moustache Bash fundraiser at The Independent...

The boys hit me up for some dj support tomorrow @ Booty Bar late night; looking forward to working with some new talent & bouncing some hipsters.

Free rum Tuesday night courtesy of Swagger & Couch Potato.

As the lone Gucci Mane fan in TMC, i felt that it was my duty to
create and post this remix. Newish Gucci vox over a wondrous
Nightmares on Wax beat from a few years ago, i'm biased but
this is waaayyyy better than the O.G. Gucci track (which was
pretty forgetable).
