Diplo & Friends went down on Saturday, the first weekend of Miami Music Week or WMC depending on how long youve been attending this holiday. Among Diplos “friends” were Dogblood ( Skrillex + Boys Noize) as special guests. Dillon Francis was supposed to perform as well but he didnt make it. All good though cuz as you’ll see in the video, it was one of those nights. Major Lazer took their shirts off, and made ayy’body do the same. God bless all those lovely ladies twerking their hearts out. You are appreciated.
As they say, “shit got real. way real. too trilla”
Josh and Curt are cool as fuck. They signed my copy of their Scion mix cd. I’ve listened to it at least 45k times before work cuz it put me in a good mood. I think they were kinda psyched that I had it, too. Everybody wins.

I thought Drop the Lime had his work cut out for him cuz Flosstradamus ripped it. But he knows what he’s doing. Trouble and Bass dont fukk around, ya dig? Not one to be left behind he definitely kept everybody rockin. Great night.
Drop The Lime is another cool fukkin dude. Gracias.
In case you were wondering,what does RTSA stand for?
Real Trap Shit Approved.
The Mad Decent Chicago Block Party which included headliners such as Nadastrom, 12th Planet and Action Bronson reached capacity by 6pm. 2 hrs later fans started rushing the gates and the event was shut down.
Hands down our favorite party of WMC 2012. Dave Nada said it was his favorite in a long time and every person there would agree they had a fukkin blast. My official rating is that it went 2 x Ham and 3 x Ratchet. Double Ham. Triple Ratchet. Maybe even triple Hammer time.
Plenty of cameos too. Evol Intent, Kill the Noise, Zeds Dead, A-Trak, Jessie Andrews, MUNCHI!!!, Plastician, 12th Planet, The Others, Caspa, Congo Rock, Spider Man, Roxy Cottontail, Kid Cedek, Vicious Viv and probably a million more.
There had been speculation (mostly by me) about whether or not empanadas would be available for purchase. You know, holding up the moombah mass tradition. Sadly there were none, so I made up for it in the video.

Last night UM held a free show with Diplo at the helm. It was free…for UM students =|
Buuuuuut an after party was announced yesterday and it was also free. All in all t’was a good time. No room to complain at free events. It wasnt unbearably packed but still managed to get ratchety.
Nah for real tho, I seent it.
This right here is a blast from the past. Long ago Mad Decent held a contest to remix a Major Lazer song and/or album cover. My super producer skills were not on point back then so I went with what I knew best. Party fun time…or art related biz.
Personally, I still think this was one of the dopest covers in the contest. The voting system was very iffy and clearly I should’ve won and brought home the goods, buuuuut it was still fun.
