“I think we can all agree that K-Pop singer Psy’s music video “Gangnam Style” is one of the greatest videos ever to be uploaded to YouTube. The song is as sarcastic as the video. Psy is making fun of the self-absorbed hipsters of gangnam who run through life as if everything is about them. While people do their everyday things: taking their kids to the park, playing tennis, riding horseback, even taking a public bath Psy makes himself the fabulous central attraction in every setting. As for the famous catchphrase “oppa gangnam style,” imagine the guy at the bar trying to pick up an attractive girl with the line “I’m Hollywood, babe” or “daddy’s got swag” and you have an idea of the [donkey butts] Psy is making fun of.”

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 years now since Adam has passed, it seems like just yesterday we were on AIM or BBM telling jokes, making plans to hang out and talking about music, gigs & the Lakers. I know that I, like many others out there, miss him tremendously. Not only was he an incredible DJ talent but he was also an amazing person to be around. I’m happy to keep his memory alive by releasing these long lost & previously unheard live mixes from years past. One of the mixes he sent me during the Interscope mix development (read HERE if you missed the story on how I got these mixes) was the recording of a party he did for Old Navy. The party was held in New York City on January 30th, 2008 to unveil Old Navy’s “hip, new creative direction” geared towards women in their 20s. It was attended by Hollywood stars such as Blake Lively, Kristen Bell and Hayden Panettiere. The event featured a live performance from Natasha Bedingfield and, of course, music from DJ AM.
Most people who are familiar with Adam’s live mixes have probably heard the Old Navy Part 1 recording. It’s a great blend of 80s, classic rock, indie dance and other gems, but no one has heard Part 2… until now. Part 1 was the first hour of the 3 hour recording. If you haven’t heard Part 1, you can get it here. (Link courtesy of Fresh Basil Crew, more AM mixes can be found on their page here). The reason the mix was split into two parts is because Adam loved the first hour of the gig when he was able to play music he really liked. He wanted to put that out because it had all the stuff he liked listening to and it was very similar to his classic Elton mix series. The second half, as you will hear, has some of that style in the beginning but goes in a more commercial direction the further you get into it. My guess is the party turned into a dance event after Natasha Bedingfield’s performance and he adjusted the music accordingly. Immediately following this January 30th performance for Old Navy in NYC, he headed to Arizona to spin the EA Sports Superbowl Party on January 31st… and that will be the next unreleased mix I’ll be putting out soon! So without further ado, please enjoy the second installment of the DJ AM UNRELEASED MIX SERIES entitled “Old Navy Part 2″ from the legend himself, DJ AM.”

Datsik is ready to spend the nights on his upcoming Firepower Records Tour in a vortex. For real. The Canadian dubstep DJ and producer (ne Troy Beetles) hatched the idea for the vortex-shaped DJ booth he’ll be using on the tour on an airplane flight earlier this year with good pal and fellow DJ/producer Excision.
“I was mulling over ideas and came up with this really cool concept…like a massive vortex, with all the visuals spiraling inward towards me,” Datsik, who recently tried the technology out during tour rehearsals in Los Angeles, explains to Billboard. “It’s really trippy. It looks like I’m floating in the middle of this concoction.” The images are projected both from in front and from behind, he adds, which makes the presentation “look seamless, really unlike anything I’ve ever done before. I basically wanted to make the trippiest possible thing I could, and this is the idea that came to mind.” (more…)
Here’s Nicki’s new visual “I Am Your Leader,” watch them in this green, pink, & gold cartoon house. The chorus reminds me of the oompa loompa song from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Watch this video above and the Oompa Loompa video after the jump to compare.
