Jayceeoh, From The Studio To The Stage.


2013_5_14_Jayceeoh__MG_7534-1

LA-based party rocker, turntable guru and a Serato DJ, Jayceeoh is a man who does not stop. Following international acclaim for his “Super 7″ mixtape series, Jayceeoh, born Jacob Osher, became the official tour DJ for the likes of DJ Sammy Adams and Wiz Khalifa, and to date has worked alongside Jazzy Jeff, A-Trak, Redman and Talib Kweli to name a few.

When he’s not playing at premier club venues around North America and Europe you’ll find Osher in the studio. Along with a steady stream of bass-heavy remixes, Osher has produced original tracks with DJ Scene, Steve1Der and Caked Up. At present, production is number one for Osher, having figured out his way around a turntable long ago (he’s a two-time national DMC finalist and was crowned M.I.C Turntablist of the Year two years running).

Rest In Peace to Mr. Robin Williams.

Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December. He had recently signed on to reprise his beloved role as Mrs. Doubtfire in a sequel to be directed by Chris Columbus, and was last seen opposite Annette Bening in the indie film The Face of Love. His sitcom The Crazy Ones premiered on CBS last fall, but was not picked up for a second season.

According to a press release issued by the Marin County Coronor’s office, the Sheriff’s office suspects the death to be “suicide due to asphyxia.” The 9-1-1 phone call came in just before noon today.

sara-underwood-pro-tools-899356

‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ is a cinéma vérité immersion inside the unique Los Angeles “beat scene” music community, centered around the world famous Low End Theory club night. Filmed over the Summer of 2013, we are given the opportunity to elegantly lift the veil on the personal creative processes of the internationally-acclaimed pillars of the scene. Indie music luminaries such as Thundercat, the Gaslamp Killer, TOKiMONSTA, Jonwayne, Baths, Daedelus, Ras G, Teebs, D-Styles, edIT of the Glitch Mob, Astronautica, Free the Robots, and Matthewdavid are all featured in vivid detail. The soundtrack for the film creates itself live on camera as the film elapses. This avant-garde visual angle on each subject in their respective creative spaces provides for an introspective glimpse into what would otherwise be unseen.

Told as a 24-hour tour throughout the city, the fly-on-the-wall perspective of ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ archives each artist’s studio at this moment in history, revealing something not only universally humanizing about the scene’s stars, but also telling of the diverse community in which this group of inter-related artists interact. Directed by seasoned music documentarian Matthew F. Smith, and produced by Low End Theory club founder Daddy Kev, ‘Looking for the Perfect Beat’ provides a holistic view of L.A.’s key players in this generation’s electronic music landscape while instilling hope for the future of cross-cultural creative unions.

If there was an award for the greatest bachelor pad on Earth, this Beverly Hills masterpiece would certainly be a contender for the title. 1201 Laurel Way is a modern mansion designed by Michael Palumbo and his team of architects. There are few places more desirable than Los Angeles when it comes to living destinations. Sure there’s the smog problem everyone promotes so much, but the place really is beautiful. This 6 bedroom, 10 bathroom residence takes advantage of the stunning coastline views LA has to offer with floor to ceiling windows used heavily throughout the home along with a rooftop terrace and infinity pool to really take it all in. The open floor plan creates a nice social setting, and the spacious garage has plenty of room for your McLaren, Rolls-Royce, and Aston Martin.

Party in South Central.


As many of you may have noticed, my posts have pretty much stopped over the last few days.  I’ve been posted in the great city of Los Angeles, with Duckworth of Tokyo 24 in South Central, enjoying the weather and getting work done.  When I leave, all the pictures from the trip will be available shortly after.
