HIT IT AND QUIT IT Feb. 22, 2010 w/ SG Nickodemus

Yes, its our 100th post! And what better way to represent than with an extra special Hit It and Quit It featuring our main man Nickodemus who piped in special from NYC (oh yeah to play the Splore Festival too). He must have rocked the spot because we've never got so many texts from fawning females... damn.

One love and see you next week for the 101st installment...

Detroit is so crazy. I just hung out with 23 random people and Dez in his living room playing the sweetest soul joints for about 4 hours. In New Zealand.

HIT IT AND QUIT IT Feb. 15, 2010, S/G Mix from Cesar Ramirez

First order of business, big gupppps to everybody that came down to check Trus'me in fine form at the HIQI Revue on Friday. We all had a blast, thanks very much for your support Auckland... We're growing this thing;)...

Also want to send an official birthday shout out to our quarter-century old Daddy-O post-production and studio wizard Ben Lawson. We tried to take the bro out for drinks but he very wisely flagged that potentially sloppy scenario to be with his family...

So anyways, here is our latest radio offering. Peep our main man Cesar Ramirez' guest disco mix, serious heat straight outta Chicago! The title ('Music Has The Power') says it all... Cesar has produced some inspirational house gems for Smooth Agent and REALDeep as well as re-edited some monster disco joints under the moniker's 'Cesario' and 'Dickie Moe'. Click here to preview Cesar's latest EP 'The Rememberance'.

Crew. A friendly reminder that we will be getting down THIS Friday for our very special 3rd installment of the Hit It and Quit It Revue. Our main man Trus'me has arrived in Auckland and is already appropriately 'red' (from that NZ sun, sheeeit!) in commemoration of his album and our red-themed Valentine's throwdown Feb. 12 at the Basement. Please reach if you can, this one will be off the chain...


Here's this past Monday's show with Recloose, Frank Booker and Chef D on the decks and Sam Harman keeping our radio machine well oiled. Complete with Trus'me live to air interview and a very improptu Dilla tribute straight from the heart...
