Out This Week….Supa Crucial Downtempo Remixes & Rarities
This album charts many of the collaborations thorugh The Angel’s career. From back in the day; the one-time Garth Trinidad (KCRW) favorite by Jaz Klash, “Thru The Haze (The Angel Remix),” where The Angel remixed her jazzy dnb collaboration with Bristol’s More Rockers, to new remixes courtesy of DJ Drez, who gives both versions of The Angel’s “Destiny Complete” feat Mystic, the Jahta treatment. Divine Styler appears on the album on both sides of the mixing board; remixing The Angel’s “Make It Betta” (feat Tre Hardson), originally a limited vinyl only release, while also guesting on vocals on both the “Act I” and “Act III” mixes of “Act As If.” The Dread Flimstone & Pale Face remix redub of 60 Channels’ “Ride With The Flow,” originally a limited vinyl only release, the O.G. version of which was featured in the TV shows “Six Feet Under” and “La Femme Nikita.” Headset’s (Plug Research) unreleased remix of “OK…Alright” by Mystic, recently unearthed, available here for the first time. Tre Hardson “10 Million Ways,” produced by The Angel is also previously unreleased.

The Business Of Being A DJ And Making Money Doing What You Love

On Saturday, April 25 from 11 AM to 1 PM, Wendy Day and Kim Ellis from IN THE KNOW SEMINARS are coordinating the panel for the 10th Core DJ Retreat in Atlanta. Since DJs are the most influential part of our culture (yet often the last to be paid, and the first to be cut from a budget), doing a panel for DJs is near and dear to our hearts.

This panel will focus on the business side of being a DJ. We’ll cover:
+how to properly set up and structure a business
+how to make money as a DJ
+the importance of health insurance and savings programs
+how to find sponsors and endorsement deals
+what comes next after DJing?
+how does a DJ transition to other areas to receive additional income streams?
