DJ DAZ Speakerboxxx Top 10 picks Friday Nights @ Carbon

--dj dAz - Speakerboxxx 10. - Speakerboxxx - Friday nights @ Carbon.
9300 Venice Blvd, Culver City, CA. 10pm - 2am, 21 w/ I.D.

1 - Lil' Wayne - A Milli - Boom chune from the inter-galactic stunna
rapper that makes the dance-floor shake like @ 7 point 4 magnitude
California earthquake

2 - Erup - Click Mi Finger - "click mi finger make a gal wanna roll
with me", straight bad bwoy Dancehall hotness outta JA

3 - Rhythms Del Mundo Cuba - Clocks - A Cuban re-fix of Coldplay's pop
tune adding horns, congas, and a sick bass-line that gets the whole
spot 2 stepping to the Latin rhythms

4 - El General - Te Ves Buena - The original reggaeton Don song still
sounds as good as it ever did :)

5 - Skillz featuring Common - So Far To Go - Kinda puts my faith back
into what party Hip Hop is meant to sound like; conscious lyrics, nice
beats, with a positive outcome

6 - A Race Of Angels - We - Sets the evening up something lovely,
smooth chune from the Los Angeles based collective, grab a cocktail
and whisper sweet nothings to your date while this song is playing to
get the chemistry started

7 - DJ Spinna - Dillagence - Spinna's tribute to J-Dilla features
Phonte from Little Brother is another early evening staple

8 - Mavado - Just about anything Mavado puts out works on the
Dancefloor at Speakerboxxx

9 - Kanye West - Flashing Lights - Lifts the crowd up from a
down-tempo Hip Hop or Reggae set, works everytime!!!

10 - Cool Kids - Black Mags - Might be a little too underground to
play behind Kanye or Weezy but I play that shit sometime during the
night to stroke my own DJ ego
