Toca Tuesdays with Tony Touch: DJ June’s Birthday

Every Tuesday night Tony Touch throws a great party Hip-hop in the East Village/Lower East Side called Toca Tuesdays. He brings in a scheduled special guest along with his resident DJ, Dj June. Last night was DJ June's Birthday celebration. The schedule was DJ June playing a longer than normal set, then Tony Touch. But that isnt what exactly happened. She DJ's excellently then Tony Touch brought in DJ Finesse for starters. Then after a great happy birthday set of songs from Finesse, there was another special guest... Just Blaze! It was late, people were vibing, and so was Just Blaze and Tony Touch. They did a series of juggles together. Watching it, it was like Just Blaze saw a song on Tony's computer and was like "Yeah this is the one" and Tony was doing the same! You gotta check out the video.

Crizzly’s Remix of Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Thrift Shop, you heard of it? I know you have. Its this year's unlikely chart topper, hitting #1 on Billboard a few weeks back and still holding the #1 or #2 position depending on what chart you look at. Also, their newer song, "Can't Hold Us", is flying up the charts and is currently also holding a #1 or #2 position depending on the chart you are looking at. Anyhow, Lets talk Crizzly, if you dont know, its time to know him. He is an amazing artist and this remix is good. There is a saying "Crizzly fixed it", this song didn't really need fixing (aside from the over exposure), but this remix is good and will breath a bit of life back into the song for any DJ that is completely sick of it. One question, where is the music video version!? That would be cool.


If you click to soundcloud and click download, itll take you to Crizzly's fb page for a free download (or just click that link).

Get it now and be the first to pay it this weekend at the clubs. This album is going to be big too, but this song is infectious.

This song will get into your mind, body, and soul. Singing on the track is Pharell Williams, on guitar is the amazing Nile Rodgers, and of course the robots (Daft Punk).

Daft Punk “Random Access Memory” – The Collaborators: Giorgio Moroder

When was the last time you were actually excited about a release of a full length album? I can't remember the last time for myself. This time, its Ramdom Access Memory by Daft Punk. I have a feeling that this album is going to be epic and have TONS of great dance tracks on it. The album cover is great, with the Thriller-like cursive writing and the robot heads! Judging an album by its cover is okay by me in this case. So, we are here to talk about The Collaborators. The Collaborators is a video series that talks with the people that made Daft Punk's new album possible. This is Episode 1 with Giorgio Moroder. Its great! Watch it more than once! Click through for the album cover and more links to this amazing new album. I cant wait to hear it!

He won the new Beats By Dre - Mixr, created by David Guetta. To top it off, once the battle was finished, Tony Touch came out and did a special performance.

Paris Hilton, the faux DJ

On Paris Hilton's debut as a DJ it was filled with embarrassing moments and was widely reported on. NYCelectro didnt want to give her the press, but now its just getting dumb. Not only was her set pre-recorded, she played it badly. Now she is at it again. Looks like the same stage hand DJ is sighlently still fixing her set. Just let her fail!

Afrojack, who is dating her, should be embarrassed and sounds like he is. Listen below, and the original video of her messing up and further insight is after the jump.

This is Paris' 2nd gig, still f-ing up
