MIXTAPE MONDAYS: The Notorious Party Boys

This week's entry for "Mixtape Mondays" is a special collaboration CD by DJ Ross One & DJ Roctakon, 2 of the dopest DJ's in the club scene right now. Instead of putting out a typical dance CD, Ross & Roc decided to compile a mix of music that represented the wild times that they shared throughout the years. The result is "The Notorious Party Boy Soundtrack". I haven't stopped listening to it since it released this past Friday. They put together an extremely well crafted mix with the latest club hits from Usher, Far Eastmovement & Katy Perry & also dropped some classic jams from Morrisey, David Bowie, The Pointer Sisters & Billy Idol that I even forgot about. Roctakon even took it back & did a "Re-Work" (I'm not feeling the word "Mash-Up" so I'll just say "Re-Work") of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance". If these guy's are ever spinning in your city, it's a must that you check them out live. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy Knyewtrons...Neva

Some of you Knyewtron's might remember Roctakon from our "Mixtape Mondays" post 2 years ago when we featured his "Good Life" mixtape. When he's not causing trouble in Paris or skate boarding around downtown New York, you can find Roc spinning at some of the biggest clubs in the country (Greenhouse in NY & Wall in Miami). Ross One, originally from Cincinnati, OH, also got his claim to fame in New York but later moved to Miami in 2006 where he immediately made a quick name for himself with his infamous "Favela Chic" parties at Mokai. Ross One was recently in Las Vegas, spinning New Years Eve at Marquee for an amazing room of celebrities & music industry monsters like Jay-Z, Kanye West, Chris Martin from Cold Play, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rihanna & 50 Cent (check out the Youtube clip).
