NEW MIX! DJ MENSA PRESENTS ‘WEST WEST’

Switching up from my usual summer coolout vibes to showcase the resurgence of the almighty Left coast!

Screen shot 2014-06-02 at 1.13.30 AM

While the ‘turn up’ has been all the rage as late, Californians have always continued to bop to the beat of their own drum, relying on their classic brand of brash, funky, head nodding beats as the base of their riding anthems. The movement has seen a revival by the likes of the omnipresent DJ Mustard on the beats (hoe), and artists like Tyga, YG, and Kendrick Lamar giving today’s generation a glance into the realness that is LA, the Bay & everywhere in between.

I decided to showcase the best tunes from the past 18 months just to get you up to speed on that SLAP. That real ish to set it off, and the new wave of R’n'B artists to close. Over 100 minutes of that ride or die!

*** PLEASE NOTE THE PARENTAL ADVISORY LABEL. THIS ISN’T A JOKE. MUCH VULGARITY & ADULT MATTER. BE ALERT JUST IN CASE YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO THE KIDS HOW IT’S “187 ON AN UNDERCOVER COP.” ***

FOR THE DJ’S: LORDE – ROYALS (MENSA’S DOUGIE EDIT)

I made this a few months ago. Nothing complicated, I put the famous Dougie beat under Royals to give it more oomph in the club. Great curveball to throw at Becky!

NEW MIX! DJ MENSA PRESENTS “DOWNTIME”

1977761_10152240490855071_2028891095_o

A coping mechanism for a never ending winter.

These are for times of insulation:

The huddled nap you take during the homestretch of your subway ride.
The hot breath that fills your cupped hands.
The tightness of the wool socks that wrap around your feet.
The radiator in the corner with your best interests in mind.
The comforter that seals off the last chill of the night.
The daily victory of coming home, and filling your personal space with anything you deem worthy.

Own those moments.

For tomorrow, and just a little while longer, winter awaits you again.

NEW MIX! DJ MENSA IN THE MOMENT: LIVE FROM MANILA (TRAP, MOOMBAH, BOOTY, TW*RK)

My first mix back in 2014! And it’s a fun one!

Screen shot 2014-02-09 at 6.50.18 PM

Last month, I was in the Philippines for an extended stay and befriended Kevin Ruiz, a mainstay in the Manila club scene for years. He was gracious enough to have me guest at his infamous Zero Mondays night at Imperial Ice Bar, alongside the amazing tastemakers Flex & Sanya Smith of the Zombettes.

1508109_614739771914610_1443078958_n

Kevin gave me the green light to go in on whatever I wanted, so I took the crowd on a hip-hop/EDM journey.

1619530_614739861914601_1762792509_n

The playlist is in the info of the file, but I wholly encourage to just take it in as you would live in the club, anticipating the DJ to select the next big tune.
