Lil Wayne - A Milli (James Blake Harmonimix)

I first heard this track in a mix by Synamatix called “Music Is Crack”. One of my favourite mixes in my collection. I came across it during Oneman’s set at Fiction and again in a mix by Appleblim & Ramadanman (Apple Pips) which can be found here.

Cape Town Bass

This weekend made up for that crap last-week.

Friday I finally got to see local producer/DJ Grimehouse (aka Straight Jack) perform at Dakota in Claremont. Pushing out his own material and getting the crowd going mad, much respect! You can catch him at RubADub on the 14th of may alongside some huge names! I will definitely be there for that one! Checkout the event page here.

On Saturday SKisM showed Cape Town why he’s one of the best in the business. I at first wasn’t a believer but he’s set BLEW ME AWAY!

RubADub is making history here in Cape Town keeping up with their rivals Step Up – I’ve got massive love for both of them!

Dont forget about Exile Island hosted by Rubadub @ Rock the River SA, Easter Beast. This event is going to be HUGE!!!

Catch you on the d-floor

I love the little write-up on the blog:

“Hench badass Jakes done exactly what he does, and thats put soundsystems into the red, not through choice, but from the pressure of the crowd pulling serious bass faces. A blazing set from Jakes.”

It turns out that you can catch the 6 hour video of the whole party on youtube.

Killa & Instinct

Lost & Shiverz

I’m off tomorrow so I guess I can spare 6 hours… :P
