FUN - We Are Young

It's been a while since I've posted anything. My laptop was stolen a little while ago and posting on my smartphone is anything but smart and definitely not fun. This post took at least 10 minutes to post waiting for my browser to respond, then I got a call in the middle ... anyway, I should have a laptop again shortly, in the meantime ... here's a song that my room-mate recommended. Nice tune ... cool video.

An Evening at the Nash - some indie pop contagion

i went to a gig last night at the nash, my favorite place on earth. i went to see 'the evening cast', a band i already rate in my top 5 and stayed to check out the headlining act, 'windsor thieves'. the sound was shit (though i had a dream about making out with the sound guy on new years eve later?) so i left early-ish, assuming their recordings would be more impressive. i missed the first guy. this was filmed at a previous nash gig ...and now for a remix more:: http://www.triplejunearthed.com/WindsorThieves seriousstuff


Neil Young - Hey Hey, My My

good early morning humans! I'm almost at the end of finals and have been of course listening to music in the background to keep the creative juices flowing, and this track popped up in a mix i did awhile back. It's an epic 3-way mash up of Paulo Mojo, Pryda, and Karen Overton who has a beautiful voice. This 10:40 journey is one of my favorite trancey/progressive/electro tracks possibly ever. This is the kinda track you mix in and let play outtttt enjoy! wish me luck with finals! I'll be graduating in a week :D cheers


RIP Donna Summer

The "Queen of Disco" has passed on after a fight with cancer. What a sad day for music. Rest in Peace, Donna.

    Thanks Charlie for taking the time to answer a few questions. We've
    been fans for a long time.

    When did Ghetto Division come about and what was your main inspiration
    for starting the label?

Ghetto division was created by me in 2007 at hotjams records. I threw parties with a few buddies also known as rampage, maddjazz, d51, rob threezy and moonman. We didn't have a name but we were all from the southside of chicago also known as ghetto side of chicago but there was a group/division of use from the ghetto that were not gangbangers or trouble makers. We just wanted to dj and throw parties.

    Who are some of your influences artistically?

Frankie Knuckles, Cajmere, MasterKraft, Daft Punk, The Doors, just to name a few.

    Your Southside Shakedown parties have given you quite a reputation for
    bringing a crowd. Are you still putting those on?

I will be bringing back those events back but not called south side shake down i started a promotional / event coordinating company called House Unity and will be throwing events under that name with ghetto division artist. Ghetto division is now a record label and focusing on only production and deejaying.

    How do you recruit for the label? Is it organic or do you have a
    system for finding fresh talent?

We recruit by talent, ambition and motivation.   

    What is your opinion of the dance music scene these days in Chicago?

Chicago is a little slow right now, in my opinion. There is alot of talent in chicago but not born and raised talent anymore only a selected few from chicago are born here everyone in the scene is not from the city so they give the world the wrong impression of how chicago really is.  

    Where are some places that Ghetto Division members have traveled to?
    What city or cities are your personal favorites to play in? Why?

Ghetto Division artists have had the privilege to mix all across the u.s, mexico, europe etc. My favorite spot was belgium. They know how to party and enjoyed all our production.  

    You guys have covered the full gamut of underground house music ...
    from bmore to moombahton to juke? What styles or hybrids should we be
    on the lookout for?  

No genres just bpm from now on. If it makes you move, if it makes you happy if it makes you cry. That's what we are aiming for from now on. Trying to capture all forms of emotion and feelings thru the music.

    I've read that you recently purchased a large record collection. What
    percentage of Ghetto Division material is released on vinyl?

Nothing yet is available on record but we do have some projects and releases in the works and they will be both digital and vinyl releases.  

    Anything else you want to add?

Ghetto Division Is a group of friends / family from the southside of chicago born and raised in the ghetto streets but the division of us that aren't involved in gangs or gang violence have a voice and express our selves thru our music and want to change the world thru our music.

Occasionally, I'll spotlight an artist who is following us on Twitter. Today, it's Heavy Motion from Los Angeles. This guy seems to have a knack for remixing tracks into synth-laden sweet spots. Here are a few gems --->

Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park

I remember watching this on TV when I was 5 years old. I decided to watch it again for nostalgia sake and it still sucks as bad as my 5 year old movie critic remembered. Kiss was a phenomenon that could've only happened in the 70's ... ok - scratch that, but still it was an era ripe with glamourous-ness that really allowed them to thrive. Kiss hated this movie ---> presumably because it doesn't show them trying to keep it real enough (sarcasm WINK WINK). You'll find the rest of this series at the end of each video. no boats
