Chill in the form of a pill... just gots ta chill....

So tonight is the first night of our BRAND NEW weekly in Hollywood @ the beautiful Parlour Room (6423 Yucca St., just off of Cahuenga). Yes, the tabernacle style is comin to Hollywood baby! Let's just hope they're ready for it ;]

(click image for details)

But since a lot of people are always asking me, "WTF IS TABERNACLE ANYWAYS?!!" I figured I would break it down and also get people hyped up for tonight.

Tabernacle style, or as we like to call it, "Tabernacle son!" is a style of DJ'ing invented by the great Shaolin master, Dj D-Flow. So in a sense it really only exists in his own mind, and one can only truly be considered a true master of the tabernacle style under the tutelage of master D-Flow. But what it really is, in a nutshell-- really. really. ridiculously good music that makes your saddle rattle. None of that Top 40 bling bling bullcrap. Tabernacle comes from the heart and soul, so you best believe every selection has to have some heart and soul in it ;]

Here's a prime example of the tabernacle style from the originator himself:

01 Tabernacle Vol 1. Sonic BOOM!! !! by DjDFLOW

And here's some other good examples of some tunes you might here at a tabernacle party

*********and just to make it interesting, if you can pick out the one song that DOESN'T belong in the list, you are a true student of the Tabernacle and deserve a free drink tonight! Just post it in the comments here or on the event page on facebook****************:

So there you have it. A tid-bit of tabernacle sprinkled all ova dat ass! Hope to see you all out tonight gettin down with the sounds! We'll be there every week doin what we do best- TABERNACLE SON!

As always, feel free to hit either myself or D-Flow up if you got any special requests for our night, or just to say what up =] You can find us on twitter at: @djsillykid and @DJ_DFLOW

The Toast Buffet...

Because it's nothing but JAMS up in this bitch! lol. Anyways, this is just a little compilation of stuff I've been bumping lately. Enjoy ^__^

I feel like these dudes were kind of slept on. One of my tops. Dope beats, dope flow, sa'll you need.

Another crew I feel that got kinda slept on. They got a few really dope albums. This is one of my fav tracks. Got that smoove Pete Rock feel to it.

I love LOTU and I love Redman. So it's no coincidence that this song delivers!

On to some boogie funk bizniz. I first heard this song on the promo video for Funkmosphere (which, if you've never been to- GO!!! It's every Mon @ Carbon Lounge on Venice in Culver City). Anyways, I instantly fell in love with this track. Try to play it out as often as possible.

Blue Feather got that FUNK!!! I used to like this song a lot when I first heard it, and after I saw this video and that KICKIN mustache- I LOVE it! haha

I like this song, but the beat is what I'm really all about, so I'm just postin the instrumental. Madlib at his finest.

Gotta wrap this post up with one of my favorite songs of all time. First heard this on a Madlib mix on Chocolate City. After weeks, maybe even months of searching, I finally found out what it was and it is now a staple in my music diet.

Anyways, thanks for reading/listening/fapping. Stay tuned, I got some dope new mixes bout to drop. Smell ya later.

Eeyore Days... (Rainy day survival guide)

I, for one, have always been a solid supporter of sunshine, lollipops and rainbows etc etc...But- occasionally a little gloom is needed to keep plants alive and all that hippy crap. So in order to make the best of it, here's some tips from Silly to help make it through this cloudy rainy bullshit.

1) Stay inside - going outside sucks. It's cold and wet. Nuff said.

2) Order food - the key to staying inside on rainy days is being as lazy as possible. Try to maximize time spent in bed and/or bundled up.

3) Good movies - If you don't have streaming Netflix yet- you're playin yourself. But even if you are still living in the stone age and playing DVD's from a VCR or whatever the blast it is you play those things in, it is still a good idea to be stocked up on good flicks. And since it's all rainy and depressing and shit outside, this is an ideal time to watch all those depressing, deep, dark, fantastic movies that you're usually never in the mood to watch! =D
Here's some of my fav's for rainy days:

  • Taxi Driver

  • The Innocence (This MUST be watched at night, lights off, no talking, no breaks, no interruptions- trust, it will scare the crap out of you)

  • A touch of Evil (Nothing says rainy day like a good Noir)

  • BRAIN DEAD! (Probably one of the most fucked, awesome movies of all time)

  • And if you have Netflix streaming- I recommend going through your foreign or Documentary sections- they have some really good stuff on there!
4) GOOD MUSIC! - Ahhh yes, what would a good rainy day be without good tunes to accompany it? Here's a list of songs and albums I like to rock on a rainy day (I would provide DL links but if you can not figure out how to extract music from the internet then click here for a free tutorial):
  • DJ Shadow - Endtroducing. Such an amazing album from start to finish. If you don't already own this, you really really really should. Absolutely incredible, classic piece of music

  • Sonic Youth - Pretty much anything, but my fav's for Rainy Days are Bad Moon Rising, Confusion is Sex, Sister, Goo and Washing Machine (mainly because of this song):

  • Cella Dwellas - Realms and Reality. One of my all time fav hip-hop albums. Just super chill, tight beats, dope rhymes, nuff said.

  • Classical. Rainy days are one of the few days I'm actually in the mood to listen to classical music because I just want to lay in bed and listen to music in contrast with the rain on the roof and this works perfect (also noteworthy- Rachmaninov, Chopin, Mozart, Bach, Schumann, and of course- the old Ludwig Van):

  • Stan Getz - nearly anything. My all time favorite stuff is the work he did with Jaoa and Astrud Gilberto, I like a lot of the early stuff too like Reflections, but for rainy day purposes- it's gotta be this song:

Ok for the sake of me not turning this into a short novel, I will leave you with that. Besides, you should be too lazy right now to be reading this anyways and be in bed watching movies and listening to music and being content with being lazy and depressed. So just remember- fuck all that learning to dance in the rain bullshit. Wait for the storm pass, just do it in style ;]

Stay classy Los Angeles.

New BC Video - Intro

It's finally here!!! The brand spankin new BC video for the new album; the song is entitled "Intro" (bet you can't guess which song # this is on the album). The album version actually features even MORE dope rapping (I know, we didn't think it was possible either) from other BC MC's who weren't able to make it to the video shoot. So make sure you make a note to go pick up the album next week and treat yourself to an eardrum massage.
