Scionify! w/ Gaslamp Killer and DJ Craze

As far as corporate sponsorship goes, Scion is kinda killing it. I’ve gathered quite a little collection of Scion themed SWAG over the past few years from various parties. I’ve got two adorable pairs of pink Scion panties that read “What Moves You” on the ass (hey, its better than “juicy”), i’ve got sampler CDs […]

As a DJ, over the years I’ve developed a few routines that I like to break out here and there to keep my sets interesting. Sometimes I do this thing where I’ll play the sample source and mix it into the song using the sample. I call it “Single City.” Other times I’ll loop a […]

There is a long history of ironic, white covers of popular hip-hop and R&B tracks — from Dynamite Hack singing “Boyz in the Hood” in golf sweaters and flip flops, to Little Boots’ recent melancholic cover of Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite.” In general, these attempts range from the retarded to the horribly offensive — […]

A couple of things about ducks: 1) the males have giant, corkscrew-shaped penises and 2) they have an unfortunate penchant for gang-rape. While I was in college, a few friends and I had just finished a delicious and affordable meal at a South Bay Chili’s when we witnessed one of the more disturbing spectacles of […]

This year, Coachella brought the best of this years hottest artists into one arena on 5 stages over 3 days in a titillating, chaotic and full fledged maniacal music exhibition. The Projects were in attendance, focusing mainly on electronic acts, but we got a full range of the best performances…as follows: Thom Yorke This man […]

Classic Hip Hop Mixes: Dr. Dre x DJ Riz
Classic Hip Hop Mixes: Dr. Dre x DJ Riz

Years before I got into smoking weed, drinking malt liquor and doing drive-bys, The Chronic was released and I, like every other 12 year-old boy on my block, quickly put away the Cooleyhighharmony and jumped full force into G-Funk. It wasn’t that suburban white kids like me could really relate to the content, or that […]

RIP Guru

RIP to one of the greatest MCs of all time. What more can be said except that we lost a legend today. The Bay’s Matthew Africa last month put together a tribute mix to Gang Starr that today serves as a perfect memorial to one of hip hop’s greatest duos. This shit definitely takes me […]

Jokers of the Scene

When most Americans think of Ottawa, they picture the historic cholera outbreak of 1832 or the precise urban planning of Frenchman Jacques Greber. However, in addition to being recognized for these fascinating details, Canada’s capitol city supports a pretty solid little house scene. At the center of this lies Disorganized (now Frenzy), a monthly party […]

Thom Yorke x Atoms for Peace

Most people assume that using drugs you’ve found lying on a city sidewalk is a perfectly reasonable and safe thing to do. Thus, they’re often surprised when I tell them a story which reveals that perhaps, in some rare cases, found drugs are better left alone. It was the summer of 2003, the war in […]
