Putting Instagram photos on to canvas

So there is a new service out called Instacanv.as in which they take your Instagr.am photos and blow it up to high quality canvas prints. I have my own gallery up and I tried to take some cool photos that might be hang worthy… More of a musical style if you will.

They currently have 3 kinds, a canvas, a framed print and a prism. Available in various sizes and prices. I can always use a bit of money so if you like something please purchase it. You can also check out the other amazing photographers who use instagram as a way to express their gift to the world. Continue reading

Paris Hilton gets her DJ tour ready, but as long as it’s fun right?

"DJ" Paris Hilton

"DJ" Paris Hilton

This is why I speak up. Sooner then later anyone with a gimmick and no real skills will be a ‘DJ’ and headlining fests. The younger generation with the masks and gimmicks will eventually be taken out by the already big celebrities with more money behind them. Steve Aoki had Little John on the mic. Soon it will be Paris Hilton, Pauly D, Hulk Hogan’s son, Dennis Rodman, Snoop Dogg, Little John headlining EDC, EZ, Ultra?

But as long as it’s fun who cares right? When you don’t care about the music, the industry exploits it. I just hope our music scene don’t go the way of disco.

P.S. I love you Snoop, but please let us vets do our thing.

The clowns in our EDM scene.

I remember in the 90s when hip hop was damn good. When it was about the good life, being fun and energetic like, De La Soul or Tribe Called Quest, or when it was about real life in the streets like NaS, Smif-N-Wessun, Pete Rock… and in like all music you had the clowns, people like Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer etc… But in the golden age of hip hop you would notice that you can name more of the ‘real’ artists then you could clowns.

Tits that DJ… I mean Girls who DJ, or how not to get represented by a DJ Booking Agency

Boobies that spin.

As some of you may or may not know, I run a booking agency called Agency Sounds… We represent some of the dopest names in EDM. I get a lot of request to represent a lot of people. Some good and some bad. Some I won’t even look in their directions.. those are the clowns.

Clown DJs are the ones who do it all for show. Who cares if they are beat syncing or pre-programmed the entire set? As long as they are ‘performing’ who cares right? Well let me learn you on something.. YOU ARE NOT A DJ at that point, you are some kind of cut rate live performance.

Rob Cifre aka Bamboo Live at Relax Sundays 5/6/12

Bamboo Live at Relax Sundays 5/6/12

So a little explanation is in order. I was mixing out of DJ Matt Kinney who was on a vinyl Serato setup and then it fades out a bit quickly near the end, trust me it sounded good live when DJ Dread took over on the vinyl Traktor setup.

I did this with my lovely Traktor Kontrol S2 ‘Bumblebee’ with the S2D2 Mappings – created by the very talented developer, Jiggle. Live at my residency in Stamford, CT:  Relax Sundays
(Follow us on Facebook for more mixes from our other resident and special guest DJs)
