The Ballad of D.P.

January 24, 2010

Sign of the Times is one of our favorite Prince albums. The fourth track on the album “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker” is a classic. Any Prince diehard fan can recite the lyrics. The song has always been a difficult one to slip in at gigs due to the slow tempo and we are always forced to play it very early in the night. We are very fortunate that DJ Design (Foreign Legion/Look) produced a special enhanced remix just for The Prince vs Michael Experience. At about 115 bpm this remix is perfect for dance floors everywhere. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

To download a free 320kbps mp3 version of the remix go here.

This is DJ Irie. He is featured on Return of the DJ – Volume VI. You need to watch these two videos. This is the future – dj’ing and cutting up/scratching with video.

Vinyl Sales

January 11, 2010

Vinyl sales were up 89% in 2008 compared to the previous year and up 33% in 2009 for 2.5 million vinyl units in 2009 (music sales were 1.5 billion total for 2009). What everyone fails to mention is majors slowed down on pressing vinyl for a few years and now they are doing it again. So albums like the new AC/DC and Guns N Roses are pressed and pushed at retail. Not to mention all the remastered and reissued vinyl that’s happening. But for indie rap music (and probably major rap artists too) I bet it hasn’t changed much percentage wise. Sorry rappers.
