Really stoked to be rocking with these dudes.  I know they will be packing a heavy selection of 45s, so i’m gonna have to make sure i bring out the “big” little guns for this one.  All 45s!!!  WOOO!

FaceBook Event Page

May 24th
The Piston
937 Bloor St W
Music by GENERAL ECLECTIC, SON OF S.O.U.L, Special Guest: DJ SERIOUS
All 45s

Mag 7’s is baaaaaaack!! and at a new venue – The Piston!

“small but mighty” it’s a 45 party!!

Let’s break it down… we got;

GENERAL ECLECTIC (Uma Nota/Footprints.. everywhere – he’s a legend in this town!)

SON OF S.O.U.L (Over funk’d… everywhere – he’s also a legend in this town!)

DJ SERIOUS (Cratery… also everywhere – yup, another legend from tdot!)

If you know, you know…. If you don’t, come see why a lot of these other djs are doing what they’re doing now

For some;
you will have a really good time. you will dance… or think of dancing. you will drink… or think of drinking. you will call your mom… the music will be that good… because these dudes… THESE dudes – are serious party starters and maintainers!

For others;
how exciting is it to watch a dj spin 45s?? I mean, it ain’t easy… for me, it is exhilarating to watch/listen to a dj blend music on the spot with only a minute or two in between, keeping the party moving AND make it sound good… amazing…

I hope you come and enjoy all that they will be serving up!!

GRAPE JUICE @ THE MIDFIELD (05.18.2013)

Grape Juice: Vintage tunes and vintage beverages

#grapejuice

May 18th (And the 3rd Saturday of every month)
Midfield Wine Bar
1434 Dundas st. W
Music by DJ Serious
Soul, Jazz, Funk, & some Random Wierd Shit

Let’s be honest. You’re way past standing in line at the club, getting yelled at by douchebags and cleaning up your best friend’s vomit at the end of the night. So it might interest you to know that there is in fact, an alternative. It’s a place where the people playing the music actually understand the music. Where the guys behind the bar know a little more than opening a fridge and cracking a bottle cap. Nope. It’s not Marineland. But good guess, Sherlock. It’s a new monthly get together at Midfield Wine Bar. With resident DJ’s Serious and Arcee. Grape Juice is all about good wine, good tunes and good people. Lots of soul. Definitely hip-hop. And of course, jazz. But not that stuck up white tablecloth jazz – that good shit. We hope you’ll join us. Of course, if getting yelled at by douchebags is kind of your Saturday night thing, we understand if you can’t make it.

Albino Zebrah Celebratory Hip Hop Hoe-Down – 13 YRS in This!

B-Boys and dancers of all forms take precedent when it comes to my dj sets. The funk just oozes from my pours. With that said it should not come as a surprise that I see a lot of Toronto’s best dancers at my jams. Some of these kids (well i guess they aren’t kids anymore) go by the crew name of Albino Zebrah. This London ON. born crew has for the most part relocated to Toronto and are celebrating their 13th B-Day. So lets all wish them a great 13 years in this hiphop life!

It goes down starting at 3pm on Saturday August 14th 2010 at the John Innes Community Center – 150 Sherbourne St.

I will throwing down for the battles along with some great talent

New Weekly Event – 24 Carat @ Andy Poolhall every Tuesday

24K Logo (colour)

The title of this post pretty much says it all…

Long time buddy, loud mouth, all around good guy and, BBoy dancefloor killer Heistro (Ready2Rock/DDK) has decided to get in the promotion game.  In creating this night dedicated to dancers and their audience, Heist has enlisted Kae Wonder and myself to throw down the funk joints to keep the bodies warm over the winter months.

This should be a fun one.

This all takes place at Andy Poolhall

Launch Date: October 6th 2009

Cover : Free

For the funk heads, the name 24 carat is an homage to arguably one of the genre’s best LP’s
