A brand new episode featuring longtime friend and record digging colleague DJ Center (http://pushthefader.com). Center stopped by my place last Sunday with a couple bags of jazz originals, and put together a great set for the podcast. We also spent a few minutes chopping it up and reminiscing on old mixtapes and digging adventures.
Thanks so much to everyone who’s been listening and sharing the podcast! Remember it’s free to subscribe on iTunes, Soundcloud, GooglePlay or most other podcasting websites and feeds, just search for DJ Ian Head.
In case you’ve missed the latest episodes, Pullin from the Stacks continues on iTunes and Soundcloud. For Soundcloud users, I’ve created a separate account where the latest episodes will be published (though I will also repost them to my DJ Ian Head account as well).
I’m in PDX for the month of June doing some digging and working on some music, so there’s probably gonna be a break from the podcast until I return – but lots of funky goodness once I do!
Hope everyone is good.
It’s here! The Dollabin crew of DJ Ian Head and Verbal Math has finally pressed our own piece of wax. The A-side is a favorite from our first release ten years ago, “Pragmatic,” and the B-side is the exclusive new song “Style Points Coda.” As a bonus, we threw on an instrumental of “Pragmatic” as well.
Vinyl is in limited supply so grab a copy now!
Thanks so everyone who continues to support independent music.
The second vinyl release from Everydaybeats is coming very soon…this time from the Dollabin duo, Verbal Math and DJ Ian Head. Ten years after our EP release dedicated to digging up old records, we’re pressing our own music up on wax. Side A is a classic from that original release, and Side B are a couple vinyl exclusives. Stay tuned!
A mix of a few hip-hop album-only classics, all from original vinyl. Which means, they all sound crunchy and old and kinda rough. But hopefully also fun.
Tracklisting: Freddie Foxxx, Jungle Brothers, Organized Konfusion, Yo-Yo, LLCoolJ, 3rd Bass, EPMD, Above the Law, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Gang Starr, MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane, Ice Cube, Black Sheep.
I thought I’d dedicate a few jazz selections from all-time Tribe songs with especially classic Phife verses to the one and only Funky Diabetic. Tribe’s music is forever, and changed my life forever. Styles upon styles upon styles. Rest in Power Phife Dawg.
Latest Pullin from the Stacks episodes:
Another couple months, another five episodes of Pullin from the Stacks. Thanks to everyone for the continued support! Check out Soundcloud and iTunes for tracklistings and regular updates.
Sorry for the lag in web updates – for those who don’t know, I’m more frequently updating social media – Soundcloud, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr – than this website, which remains a “home base” but I don’t always have time to keep up with.
As 2015 winds down, here’s the last few episodes of Pullin from the Stacks. It’s been a very busy fall season and I haven’t had the time to put together and finish several other projects I’ve been working on, but hopefully in the new year there’ll be a few cool treats in addition to the ongoing podcast series. Many thanks to all that continue to listen and support the podcast though! Much appreciated.
Hope everyone is well.
