Friday Track of the Day (it's been a while version)

Greetings out there in the blogosphere...

Clearly I am very bad at updating my blog but here is a special update. Here is a short mix from my gig with Big Nick @ the Wonderland Ballroom last Saturday night (April 3, 2010). It is a mix of funky tracks and old school hip-hop to set the party off. So download it, play it loud, share it with friends, and enjoy getting "Funk't" up. Hopefully I'll get some more of these up sooner rather than later...

Pulling Ponytails and Cheapshots in Woman's Soccer

Check out this video from a NCAA Woman's soccer match that pitted BYU vs. New Mexico. All I can say is, those New Mexico players are dirty bitches. Actually it's really just one girl that's doing most of the damage.

Honduras makes the World Cup

First, the USA 2-2 tie versus Costa Rica last night was fantastic. They went down 2 goals early and fought back to tie it in the 5th minute of injury time. It was quite a game, the US team didn't look as good as they should but didn't give up. Having already qualified for the World Cup in South Africa next summer, there wasn't alot to play for but an accident two nights previous that seriously injured an up-and-coming player, Charlie Davies, gave them something worth fighting for.
But my favorite moment from the game was the fact that a tie coupled with a win by Honduras meant that the Catrachos made the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. With all the political strife in that country of late, it was a moment that I had hoped would come true. They need something to celebrate, and now they have that. Check out the link to Soccer Insider with video of the Honduran people celebrating. What a great moment!

Happy Hondurans

As a side note, one of my early memories of attending a soccer game at RFK Stadium involved going to a game in which Honduras was playing and I will always remember the fans chanting "Hon-dur-as, Hon-dur-as, Hon-dur-as" the whole game.

Let's Make It Funk, Funk, Funk, Funk, Funk, Funk, Funk, Funk, Funky

Time: September 6, 2009, approx. 1am
Place: The Wonderland Ballroom
Who: DJ Itchy Mitch & a roomful of people tryin' to get down
Vibe: Funky

I present to you some "Funk @ the Ballroom," a mix I played at Wonderland last time dj'ing there. Starting off with a few funky edits and transitioning to some later 70's/ early 80's funk burners, the place was alive with people gettin' down to the funky vibe. Watch out for the one major train wreck but don't let it keep you from having a good time.

New Raekwon, produced by Dilla

Check out this new track by Raekwon featuring Inspectah Deck, GZA, Ghostface Killah, and Method Man, and is produced by the late great Dilla. While it's not one of my favorite Dilla beats, it captures the old Wu-Tang sound and the video itself is a hot animated one. Peep it:

FTotD (4 hours and 20 minutes too late)

Check out this jam, it's "Why Did You Do It" by Stretch. This track is one that I've heard on a mix by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist. They use the "1,2" vocals in the middle of the song during their "Hard Sell" mix. When I DJ with Big Nick, he plays it alot and everytime I ask what track it is and then forget. Tonight I remembered and Googled not long after I got home. Here's a great live version, the bass player is sick:
