Welcome to JamRock


Weather some of you may know or not, there is much civil unrest in Jamaica right now.  A few people have expressed their concern with me taking a trip to see family and to explore some business options, as a bit crazy.  But I want to say publicly that this trip was planned long before the unrest in Kingston (Jamaica’s capitol city).  And neither myself, nor anyone I’m traveling with would ever knowingly do anything to put ourselves in a pinch.  So that being said, I’ll be taking a week long break from the blog to go on this trip, and I WILL return safe and sound.  So until June 1st, success and nothing less.

DJ Storm.

Stairway to cool.

Bout Dat.

I just had an opportunity to check out the new video from Grafh featuring Jim Jones entitled “Bout Dat”. Click the pic to watch the video


Eminem’s Recovery.

Michael Jackson x Ratatat

Click the pic to download the remix.

Its not necessarily a NEW mix of any sort, but I’ve gotten a few requests to put my Michael Jackson/Ratatat remix of “Do You Remember The Time” up on the blog.  This is actually the first mix I ever thought up (long before the demise of the King Of Pop) that has been floating around the web for some time.  But I’m hoping that having it up here will help spread it to a few more people.

Bobby McFerrin plays an audience.

Many people can play instruments. The violin, the drunks, the piano, or the tuba are all conventional instruments. Turntables, beat boxing, or an MPC are less conventional, but I haven’t seen anyone use an entire audience as a musical instrument. Bobby McFerrin demonstrates how the Pentatonic Scale is universal, and can be used to make music without people realizing the complex nature of their actions. Its pretty sick.

The Sensory Box

This is a video of a display set up at a mobile convention by Lucent-Alcatel, a provider of mobile web services. Its a little slow to start, But it completely awesome as a whole.
