Philly DJs Low Budget (Mike) and Dirty South Joe (Joe) talk music, culture, and other topics probably at least vaguely related to the life of a working DJ.
Ep. 37 - COSMO BAKER: PATRIOT GAMES
In our first masked up, socially distanced episode, Cosmo Baker joins us to talk about his crazy election season DJing adventures, including his work with Joy To The Polls, Election Defenders, and how he ended up DJing for the most important block party in the world. But first we start out all over the place talking about some new songs that came out in the last few week. Then we realize that we're actually doing a podcast and officially start the show. Cosmo tells us how it all went down in the weeks leading up to the elections and how everything unfolded in Philadelphia in the days after the election. We get into Covid and other current events. Since we love a good list here, we went down some of the classic uplifting freedom bangers Cosmo played at these events, which somehow leads us down the road of making fun of salty memes that old head rappers post. Then we talk about the Redbull Radio mix series that we're all involved with, HOLLERBOARED REDUX! This episode was really serious and hilarious at the same time and there was a lot of out takes that we may release in a bonus episode, but for now this is more than enough!
Ep. 36 - Mike's Really Hype Off Water
For some random reason we start off talking about our favorite songs that we found out about via memes! Mike and Jabair talk about some recent gigs, while Mike updates us on what's been hitting and what's been flopping ,and how tik tok has made Jersey Club easier to play in the club. Then, Mike and Joe start reminiscing on the days as employees at Armand's records and Doc B's influence on record buying. As usual we all run down some new music that we're feeling, including Mike's surrender to emo pop rap. We go over some mid 2000's dancehall classics and wish they were still being made and Mike asks the listeners to help him figure out what riddim the new Ape Drums track reminds me of. We listen to some new UK drill, paticularly from Ivorian Doll and Jabair put us up on some new vibey stuff from DJ moma and others. We wrap it up with some tech talk and how the Cosby show was our first intro to sampling technology.
Ep 35- We're like the wind
We're back with more tales from the deejayshpere, starting off with a random discussion of Eminem's early work. Mike talks about his recent Djing experiences and what's been working and what's been flopping. Inspired by Vin Deisel's new song, we explore the rich hisrory of celebrities making music and share some of our "favorites". We have a lot of new music from both the hip hop and dance music worlds. Joe puts us all on new international drill from places you's least expect. And we wrap up talking about the latest Sault project. Another welcome break from the anxiety that is 2020!
Ep 34: A pleasantly irrelevant episode
Lets face it, it's impossible to keep up with alll the shit that goes on everyday in this hellscape of a year, so forgive us if these arent't the most pressing topics, but hey, maybe a little break from the chaos is needed. We start off with my Mike's triumphant return to DJing for people, the adjustments we're all making, and finally getting to see what songs are working for people and what songs didn't do that much. We fantasize about rolling into a club with a Travis Scott burger, while Mike explores his dancefloor body dysmorphia. Theres some brief discussion about The RBG acronyms other than Ruth Bader Ginsberg, reminiscing on Kony2012, and wondering how real is PS5 prostitution? We stumble upon a new microgenre that has been with us all along while going throught new hits, then end up reviewing the fallout of TIk Tok "bans" and some of the latest "bangers" that have emerged from a platform in which we all agree the world could do without.
ARD EP 33: (WAP) What A Podcast!!!
We start off light this week with some feel good smilers of years past before we deal with the full gravity and realization that this year blows so hard, get "all political" , and talk about how we someties need to take a break from the insanity that is the internet. We talk briefly about Qanon, the DJ's it has inspired, and the appeal of conspiracy theories in hip hop. All this serious talk does not stop me from playing another ridiculous mash up and talking about funny pranks that can be played with song titles. Ww dip briefly into some new songs and then debate the relevance of the XXL's Freshman class.
ARD Episode 32 - The Absence of Logic
IT'S A WILD ONE FOLKS! First we start off with one of Lowbeezy's terrible Mashups. Then we get into the announcement of Logic's retirement and some stand out cuts off his new album. We share some of our zaniest freestlyes that we've heard like Smokepurp and Haiti Babii and then assess the influence of Rick Ross' Teflon Don album after its 10 year anniversary. We go through some new music including Shaq's foray into dubstep, new hip hop and new house joints and Joe plays some of his favorite TrapMetal bangers... Lots of new music in this episode! Recorded on July 27, 2020
