Episode 024 – JoyClub w/ Malcolm X

Aperture, Des, and DJ Amen Ra are are joined in the studio by DC Producer and DJ Malcolm X. For the first time ever Amen Ra takes a seat and gets to enjoy some tunes while Malcolm delivers us an eclectic set of hip-hop, house, and club smashers. Meanwhile Des hooks the crew up with some exclusive New England donuts with Jameson chasers. Don’t judge! These things go together bruh!

 

Malcolm schools us on the magic that is JoyClub and how it came to be, while also sharing some info about his producer output which includes producing tracks for several films. Amen Ra & Malcolm kill an amazing duo set to close things out with an epic Migos + Art of Noise Mashup. We’re also honored to listen to an exclusive track from Ikey’s film “Stay Away” produced by Malcolm himself.

We have a multi-cultural discussion on how it’s 2017, our President is a nazi sympathizer, and all we do is tweet about it.

Episode 017 – Left Coast Proper (w/ DJ Dynamix, Casey Kills Jobs, Deenfinite)

We’re coming at you LIVE from Los Angeles, Southern California; fresh off our, now SECOND, BEST SOUNDTRACK award for Walk of Shame. This episode we’re joined by WoS Soundtrack contributor, Ellis Tenza, otherwise known as DJ Dynamix (2011 & 2012 Los Angeles Red Bull Threestyle Champion, VH1’s – Master of the Mix).

 

Recording from the legendary, DJ Quest9’s, crib in Anaheim – Dynamix gets the tectonic plates shifting back and forth like only SoCal can – kicking things off with an exclusive 20-minute set and interview.

 

Amen Ra & Dynamix let you into the psyche of the DJ, on how to shed labels and transition that into spinning records. Amen Ra gets Zen. Brandon shouts out tacos and gets rejected by bouncers. Plus, playing it like a noob in front of Karrueche Tran and Obama interrupting our plans in Beverly Hills.

Episode 016 – Backyard BBQ (w/ Casey Kills Jobs)

DJ Amen Ra takes us to a backyard-BBQ, underneath picturesque sunny clouds, with an unofficial-officially-themed podcast; featuring some of hip-hop’s fallen greats on top of some legendary, nostalgic tracks. The cliché, “they just don’t make them like they used to” is the subliminal, musical thesis for your next hour of audio enjoyment.

We remember Phife by taking a trip down memory lane to the time we each popped our Tribe-cherry. TB&P babies are dropping (pun? If so, gross!)! A brief, intellectual breakdown of the direction toilet water spins based on your location on earth; which leads into another short, segment, of brain-food, on the verb-usage in our history textbooks.
