last night, I went up to the LMFAO studio finally….. it’s been maybe a couple years since I even really got to chop it up with the fam and seriously been forever since I even got to chat it up with Red Foo since he’s taken his career from 1 end to a whole other level…. (I met Red Foo 15 years ago when Gavin O’Connor brought him into my office @ Priority Records with his vinyl demo…. crazy)
while hanging out there, you realize how far technology has taken shit with being able to mix and master an amazing album inside a house or even hotel room as good as you could have at Capital Records studio (well some beg to differ, but at the end of the day I’ve heard music finalized and tweaked so amazing I would tell those to stfu)
Red Foo’s studio is basically all you need today. And as for his DJ set up, he doesn’t even need turntables now, it’s crazy…. everything is ran by computers…
well I won’t write a super long diatribe about how Red coulda used a card to get into hollywood an easier way, but I HAVE TO RESPECT THE ROUTE HE WENT AS A RAPPER AND WHAT HE IS DOING NOW WITHOUT ANY ASSISTANCE AND FOR REAL DOING IT HIS WAY.
I gotta shout out my homey Ian who I’ve known since literally 1997 or so and been grinding it out from 1 side to another and happy to see him putting in work.
LMFAO understands branding so they got their own clothing brand as most do, but unlike most, they actually rock it heavy and push like Jay or Dame did just on a smaller scale… but for their fanbase, their fans eat this shit up!
it’s crazy how all these pieces to the puzzle of our big circle of homiez have now cohesively come full circle for real for real. From Will I am to Ballystix to Homicide to LMFAO and DJ AM and everything all in…. but doing things
at the end of the day, these cats are selling out arenas, but more importantly, NOBODY IS PUTTING OUT THAT SUPER HIGH ENERGY LIKE LMFAO ARE! CRAZY BREAKDANCE MIXED WITH A HYBRID SHUFFLE DANCE AND SUPER FIST PUMPS…. these fools go nuts on stage the audiences love it.
Hip Hop is dead in many ways and those who are fucking with electro see where the movement of music and also money is going….. I’m sick of seeing people not dance or rock out; yes this coming from an ex nightclub DJ.
to make things even better, LMFAO are all about champagne spraying and hooligan behavior with the champagne bottles…. AWWWW YEAHHHH! in fact, 10 bottles of champagne is in their Rider! haaha
so last night was a cool couple of hours with homey’s and my brother DJ HOMICIDE is working on his next Album right now…. he sold 16 million records with Sugar Ray a while ago and has stood on his own feet with djing for the longest; now he’s bout to be that black David Guetta…. aka Dark Mau5 lolololol
real talk though, he’s doing a track with LMFAO and Far East Movement and gonna bring the west back on some electronic rightful shit, where Kraftwerk and Mantronix left off! PICK IT UP, PICK IT UP(REDMAN VOICE)
speaking of Far East Movement, LMFAO toured with FM and they’re both on the same label…. it really is all starting to come together and if we all help each other out, we all win.
thanks Red, thanks Ian, thanks LMFAO for inviting me to the studio last night… y’all crack me up.
shout out to Goon Rock, Dre Kroon and Q aka Fartbox, y’all some wild motherfuckers!
from LMFAO drums to LMFAO iphone4 cases to stickers…. I told y’all “BRANDING!” that’s coming from me a self branded marketing guy!
