I've DJed with the dude DStar two times now, and both times I've left incredibly impressed with just about everything he does. Naturally I love his new mix with DJ Heat and Trazz. So many jams, so many dope mixes, etc. Such a party mix.
DJ DStar and DJ Heat - Fall Back
I've also played with Redsean a few times. As in a zillion times. Dude hooked me up with my first gig in Dallas and has been heaps keen to book me whenever I go back. What's more, he's as good a DJ as he is a person. His latest mix is a chill endeavor; put on headphones, light a cigarette, and relax.
Redsean - I Need a Beach
Last up is a mix from a friend with whom I've never DJed (though I hope that changes soon): NSR. His Gummy Bears & Boat Shoes falls somewhere between DStar's and Sean's mixes - NSR mixes some chill tracks with a few party jams, the end result being a refreshing, invigorating mix.

In case y'all haven't yet heard, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have a nine year-old daughter named Willow. Not content with doing kid things such as playing with dolls, listening to Justin Bieber, and giggling with friends, this young lady went out and recorded a heater of a track called "Whip My Hair." Fittingly, Willow seems to be taking cues from older pop stars rather than her peers - all sorts of Rihanna and Kelis vibes going on here. None of it makes sense. I mean, how does a nine year-old sound this good? And why is she saying the words that she's saying? Eh, whatever - this is large.
P.S. Go Cowboys.
P.P.S. Did we ever come to a conclusion re: whether or not Will Smith is a Scientologist?
