As Long As We’re Breathing New York Redbulls Mix

As LongA s We're Breathing

Since it’s the start of the Major League Soccer season, I decided to do a mix for the New York Red Bull supporter groups and any other supporters who want to blast these tunes before or after the matches. It is a mix of tunes that the supporter clubs have championed during the match for their own chants, classic football tunes from the UK, as well as actual crowds singing from Red Bull Arena and the Red Bulls’ (Metro Stars) former home, the old Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. For many who follow football all year round and are from the New York area, we’re gearing up for the closest professional football team to NYC (even if it’s Harrison, NJ) to start their 2016 campaign. The team is the oldest MLS team from New York (1996), and the Empire Supporters Club is the oldest supporter’s group in the league. Along with The Viking Army and Garden State Ultras, they make up The South Ward. These three groups sing their hearts out for 90 minutes plus every game (home and away), and while each group is unique itself, they all form like Voltron to support New York Red Bull whether we win or lose. We continue to hate DC United, and even though there is some new blue team Uptown, it’s clear that New York is (and always will be) RED. We all stand together as one to bring home the MLS CUP this year. This is a mix of great punk, rock, hip hop, reggae, and other sides. It’s NSFW due to some graphic language, so it might not work for the younger supporter. To me, all of these tunes represent a day at Red Bull Arena with good mates, having a beer, screaming your head off and going mental for 90 minutes or more, then hopping on the PATH back home to get back to life. It’s an atmosphere that’s very unique. As long as we’re breathing, we’ll cheer for the Metro.

Check out the mix below, and if you dig pass on. I did it all live in one take, because like a soccer match, you don’t get a second chance to save a shot.

Live At Iris Records w/ Brian Coleman

iris-records-1
This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of spinning some records with the esteemed author, historian, and DJ (don’t front, dude has heat!) Brian Coleman at Iris Records in Jersey City. He was promoting the second volume of of the Check The Technique book series, signing books, and dropping some lava rocks on the turntables. It gave me a chance to dust off some hip hop 12″s, assorted 45s, and it was exciting to spin a bunch of artists’ music that were featured in both books as well as well as some original samples. I didn’t really plan a set, but just kind of let it flow. It’s live and unedited, so there are some skips, etc. That’s the way we like it, raw and uncut, just like a live show. Mr. Coleman dropped a bunch of heat from his crates and played a wide variety of good tunes. I was able to do some digging to a cool soundtrack while he played. It was great to see a bunch of heads come out and support a great book and good dude all together. Thanks so much to Iris Records for hosting both of us, and I’m looking forward to getting behind the decks sometime very soon.
