Music is a tool

Music is a tool

Music is a tool and with the right tools any skilled technician can get the job done. I can rock any venue given the opportunity even if I don't fit the image. Just because I'm black doesn't mean I can't rock a majority white club. Just because I can rock those clubs doesn't mean I can't rock the new hiphop and rap spots. Don't try and put me in a box I'm a professional, versatile DJ no matter what my skin color makes you think.

SmokeScreen Flips and Events

SmokeScreen Flips and Events

Couple a snaps from my recent events + a dope flip I did for Smokescreen. Catch there show on Saturday or catch the album when they drop it.

Today I was the the DJ for the opening act @ Edgewater Live. It was a good time despite the grey skies. Shout out to @wolfridernaj and the #LolCle crew. #DJNuERA #DoingDJStuff
I had a blast djing at Take 5 Jazz Lounge. The band (@OfficialJpennelope) was amazing, the food (Shrimp and grits) was amazing.
I'm thankful for every opportunity I've been given as a professional DJ. Sometimes I have the chance to be apart of some very special events. Last night I played music for @sneakersmcgee (Brendan Whitt) during the staged reading of his new book "A summer in Harlem" it was a great experience.

Why Hiphop is the greatest genre

Why Hiphop is the greatest genre

I only have one reason why I believe Hiphop is the greatest genre of music.

To my knowledge Hiphop is the only genre of music that consistently introduces its listeners to other genres of music and artist. 

I'm a DJ so trust me I can post examples for days but I don't really feel like doing that lol. Instead I encourage you to take a look a your favorite songs new or old and see what they sampled via http://www.whosampled.com

As a matter of fact I will drop one gem on y'all from that new Jay Z Album 4:44

Selector Battle Recap [ Major Glory ]

Selector Battle Recap [ Major Glory ]

Congratulations DJ Reg P enjoy that $150 💰💰 cash money prize! Enjoy that title of Supreme Selector while your djing Lyrical Rhythms at the end of the month! #SelectorDJBattle Witness the shift in culture as DJ's step into the public arena and showcase there skill.

Real Rap, Culture, and my guy.

As I grow as DJ and meet new people I'm starting to see that everyones idea of what a DJ is isn't the same. I believe that all DJ's should have the ability to showcase. It's important to put back into the culture we all benefit from when we call ourselves DJ's. Its about doing what you do best and showcasing your skills for the world. I think a lot of DJ's are apprehensive about battling because of the stigma attached with losing. Its not 1995 anymore lol it doesn't matter if you win or lose. Its about being authentic. If you call yourself a DJ you should have no problem showcasing after all you do it overnight you have a gig. Just condense your 5 hr set into 5 minutes. Just my opinion though.  

 

On another note my guy WSWDS dropped a nice little quick mix while we kicking it at his crib yesterday. I was like bro you need to quit playing and post that shit. Your welcome world. Enjoy The Pre Heat!

The cancelled show with a battle in Pittsburgh [ Update ]

The Platform and a little advice

The Platform and a little advice

I had the opportunity to participate as a judge during at The Platform Concert. They had a lot of great prizes for the artist. I'm glad I could be apart of such a great event. Props to all the artist that put themselves out there and join the competition. It's not an easy thing to take a loss. It's not an easy thing to put your pride on the line and allow your art to be judged. Artist keep grinding, stay connected and build your brand because in the end it's just business. 

Nu ERA Beat Tape [ Beat Freak ]

Nu ERA Beat Tape [ Beat Freak ]

Saturday night I had the opportunity to showcase my talent as a producer at the monthly BeatFreak event put together by Young Kings / Fresh Produce. This is my second time playing at this event and I have to say its always fun not just to get feed back on my material but to hear other producers and what they are working on. This tape includes beats from both my sets at the Beat Freak event. Enjoy the tape! Email any inquires to DJNuERA216@Gmail.Com

Not even a podcast

Not even a podcast

There's a lot I could say about my guy J Oates and Not Even A Podcast but what I really suggest is that you just listen to the podcast. Lots of interesting, meaningful convo about a varierty of subjects.

Not even a podcast is about bridging those gaps between our generation, by allowing conversation to expose the character of our dope creatives. Also to just have a good time, and some good conversation around the definition of our culture.
