Got in the mix today and had a gang of fun with it. Thought I’d share.
They’re two…well…four separate sets, but they’re paired up to work together. Basically, two separate hours of mixing…You can see what’s on there with the pics.
Just rock with me, I like a lotta stuff. Always glad to turn folks on to sometjing they may not be hip to or play something they dig already in a different way.

Here it is, friends; the first official video from ‘The Tinkerer’. This is ‘Iron Man Monster Factory’. Directed by Steven Lefkovitz on behalf for Daddy Real, I think this video fits the song and the project swimmingly. I’m happy denabitch.
If you dig it, reblog it and thank you for helping me get the word out about this project. ‘The Tinkerer’ is available everywhere, next Tuesday, January 31.

Jimmy Castor R.I.P
So sad to hear that Jimmy Castor, ’50s doo-wop star, ’70s funk genius, saxophone hero and key inspiration for a generation of hip-hop artists, has died in Nevada at the age of 64. The news was Tweeted by Castor’s Grandson, P.J Romain.
Born in New York, he joined Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers in 1957, replacing the troubled Frankie. A multi-instrumentalist who played sax on Dave ‘Baby’ Cortex’s 1962 hit Rinky Dink, Castor formed his own band in 1967. The Jimmy Castor Bunch signed to RCA and released their debut album, the primal rock’n’funk’n’soul-propelled It’s Just Begun, in 1972. His biggest hit, Troglodyte (Cave Man), was released the same year and such fabulous funk cuts as Bertha Butt Boogie and Luther The Anthropoid followed. Over the years, Castor’s music has been sampled by a host of hip-hop artists including N.W.A., The Beastie Boys, Ice Cube, Grandmaster Flash and Kanye West.
