New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Two DJ Legends, Jazzy Jeff & Z-Trip

Posted by Amoebite, July 31, 2013 04:37pm | Post a Comment

Jazzy Jeff and Z-Trip at Amoeba

Only at Amoeba Hollywood would you find two iconic turntablists digging for records. From producing platinum and gold selling albums to acting alongside music cohort Will Smith in Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to touring the world making people dance, DJ Jazzy Jeff has done it all! 

Z-Trip is easily the Jimi Hendrix of turntbles. Widely known as the "godfather of mashups," he practically invented the genre and brought it to the world. Z-Trip has remixed some of music's biggest stars including Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Bob Marley, Daft Punk and the Beastie Boys, just to name a few. Not only has Z-Trip designed his own signature Rane mixer (Rane Sixty Two), but he was also voted "America's Best DJ" in 2009.  

What's In My Bag? caught up with Z-Trip and DJ Jazzy Jeff when they were in Los Angeles for the Red Bull Thre3Style national competition and dance party. The two, along with DJ A-Trak are judges for the competition. They took time to dig for records and tell us all about their findings. From Soul 45 box sets, to early '80s rap twelve singles, Z-Trip and Jeff find some really cool stuff. Take note of the disco break Z-Trip points out on 'the 70s blue eyed soul record.

New "What's In My Bag?" with Death Waltz Recording Company Founder Spencer Hickman

Posted by Amoebite, July 24, 2013 11:27am | Post a Comment

Spencer Hickman is the founder of Death Waltz Recording Company, a soundtrack label specializing in horror and cult films. A longtime record store veteran, Hickman is a former manager of Rough Trade Records in East London and is the Record Store Day UK coordinator. Spencer Hickman Hickman is also passionate about film and art, which is especially evident in the exclusive artwork and insert prints the label commissions for each release. The first two Death Waltz releases were classic cinema scores, John Carpenter’s Escape From New York and Fabio Frizzi’s Zombie Flesh Eaters. Originally intending to release soundtrack reissues, Death Waltz has moved into current films including Donnie Darko and Let the Right One In.

Spencer recently visited Amoeba Hollywood to feed his love for obscure horror film soundtracks and managed to dig up some cool vinyl favorites. Hickman's love for horror sounds goes back to his childhood. He was reminded of haunting neighborhood kids when he dug up vinyl copies of Chilling, Thrilling Sounds Of The Haunted House and Stereo Dynamics! To Scare Hell Out Of Your Neighbors. He reveals an old obsession with Skinny Puppy and admits to having the band tattooed on his leg! Check out what other cool horror films and vinyl Spencer picked up on his visit.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With FIDLAR

Posted by Amoebite, July 18, 2013 02:44pm | Post a Comment

FIDLAR

What's more punk rock than living by the mantra, "Fuck it Dog, Life's a Risk?" That's exactly what the acronym FIDLAR stands for. FIDLAR, a hardcore, surf rock and pop-punk band from Los Angeles, is made up of Zac Carper (vocals, guitar), Brandon Schwartzel (bass), and brothers Elvis Kuehn (vocals, guitar) and Max Kuehn (drums). Max and Elvis' father is Greg Kuehn, guitar player for Long Beach punk legends T.S.O.L.

FIDLAR CD

Earlier this year, FIDLAR played to a packed house at Amoeba Hollywood in support of their full length, self titled debut. Watch their full performance. The band's message comes across very loud and very clear on songs like "Max Can't Surf" and "Cheap Beer." FIDLAR is packed with 16 tracks that stay true to the band's "Fuck it Dog, Life's a Risk" mantra. Our own reviewer called it a "Pabst-soaked party record with strong songwriting anchoring its punk attitude." 

We caught up with FIDLAR for another awesome What's In My Bag? episode. From classic Violent Femmes to '70s iconic soul man Curtis Mayfield to '80s film soundtrack Repo Man, these guys are strictly vinyl. Check out some of their other favorite punk and rock records they found while digging at Amoeba!
