FIT Radio MixLab: Take Two!

Jump Pic, Steve Aoki, Three Amigos, FITRadio MixLab, Mix Lab, Fit Radio DJs, Instagram, Hump Day

Well if I had to sum up this week’s MixLab in one phrase it would have to be, “anybody want some weiners and balls?” You can thank DJ Mami Chula for that one! She had purchased a barbecue platter of sorts for the DJs which consisted of mini sausages and meatballs :) ANYway, back to the MixLab recap! We had a new group of DJs and they were super excited to work together and make a brand spankin’ new collabo’ mix for the users as well as partake in jäger bombs and provisions alike. Did I mention we were streaming the whole thing live? I’ll have a link to that video for you guys on Monday so be sure to check back!

The USTREAM live feed went so well we decided that it’s more than likely going to be a staple for the FIT Radio MixLab so if you missed out this week, have no fear because it will be back :)

Check out the mixes from this week’s DJs and don’t forget to favorite the ones you love!

DJ Euphoria – Get Ready

DJ Silver Knight – O.P.P.

DJ Murgatroyd – Surge

 

FIT Radio MixLab: Take One!

So last Wednesday we had an idea come to life. We wanted to find a way to get a few of the FIT Radio DJs together in our office to hang out, play music, and work together to create awesome mixes for our users. It’s a little something we’re calling FIT Radio MixLab. We had some turn tables set up

turn tables, fit radio djs, collaboration mix, open format, party

 

so the DJs could switch off and do a live collaboration mix which was awesome because it’s definitely interesting to see what they come up with on the spot and watch the genres blend together. While all of this is going on, they were recording a separate mix on their own! Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Mami Chula was at the helm of the get together making sure everyone was having a great time yet staying on track (apparently, DJs tend to have short attention spans.)  There may or may not have been a little liquid courage to get the gears moving (I’ll never tell!)

jager, henny, shots, liquid courage, fit radio djs, collaboration mix

 

oops, or maybe I will…

Well that’s it for now! Check back next week for a new batch of DJs and a new batch of mixes! Until then, here are the mixes from the first ever FIT Radio MixLab! Enjoy!

Getting To Know Your Favorite FIT Radio DJ’s: Nacho Vega

I got to chat with one of our most popular hip-hop DJ’s on Fit Radio, Nacho Vega! Nacho Vega got his start learning from some fellow DJ friends (he was only 14!) and since then has been creating awesome hip-hop and house mixes and spinning around the US! Read on to find out more about one of our favorite DJ’s, Nacho Vega…

 Where are you from?

I was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, Grew Up in Orlando, Florida but I’ve lived in San Francisco, CA for the last 5 years.

Where is your favorite place to spin?
My favorite place to spin has to be at Temple SF where I do my residency.  Although I’ve played at some amazing places in the US and Canada, Temple SF feels the most like home away from my studio at home.

What made you get into music and DJing?
The reason I got into the DJ culture was two different friends of mine.  The first was Enrique Gonzalez aka Rick G of 3rd Wish whom at the time was called DJ Inferno and was one of Central Florida’s best Battle DJ’s.  Rick taught me how to DJ every night for two weeks and let me borrow my first crate of records.  I was 14 and he was 15.

Then I met Mark Villajandre aka Mark V. who taught me all about song selection and dance music when I was 16.  From there the journey has been one filled with many friends and good memories.

Favorite food?

Pernil con Arroz y Gandules  (I had to look this up, found out it was a delicious Puerto Rican dish made up of pork and yellow rice, yum!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Favorite TV show/s?

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, Doctor Who, sports, and my guiltiest pleasure; Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Paris, France.  I’d love to take my wife Naomi there one day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you have an idol? If so, who?

My idol and hero has to be my mom.  No matter what she finds the good and wants to help everybody. She has endless amounts of love and I love that about her.

Favorite genre and/or style of music?

House and Hip-Hop.  I grew up with both and both have been a part of every facet of my life.  So like a picture album, I have so many memories tied to Hip-Hop and House Music.

What is your favorite thing about being a DJ?
My favorite thing about being a DJ has to be the improvisation playing records and the fact that every night is different. The crowd is different every night. Every place you play they have different moods as a dance floor, so you have to improvise and be creative to give the crowd a new and unique experience.

What is your favorite track at the moment (or favorite DJ/producer/artist is fine too) ?
Hands down favorite song right now is “G.O.O.D. Morning (Europe)” by 2 Chainz.  The record is dope and suits a veteran of the Dirty South that reinvented himself as a persona that has brought credibility to the hyper swagged out culture that is Trap Music, the next evolution of the Dirty South Genre.

What type of equipment do you use?
I use a Native Instruments Traktor S2 DJ Controller.  I switched to it one and half years ago from Serato Scratch Live and I have not looked back.  Best investment for DJ’s that want all in one portability for any gig and the comfort of using the same physical and virtual DJ interface.

What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Graduate college.  It took time, commitment, and money.  But overall, best investment of my life.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Funny.  Crunk.  Loyal.

Do you have any secret talents?
I’m a pretty awesome shadow puppeteer and Lego architect.

What do you do when you aren’t spinning?
I hang out with my wife Naomi, work as a Network Architect, exercise w/ Fit Radio at my local Stonestown San Fran YMCA and have a First Class ticket to the Jet Life on Flight 420.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself doing the exact same thing except with some little copies of Naomi and I running around to share in life with.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Mind reading.  I think Mind reading would be awesome for obvious reasons, but I also don’t know if I want that kind of super power. It might be like the Kanye joint “No One Man should have all that Power”.

What are your thoughts on FIT Radio?
Fit Radio is awesome. It is like having an on-demand catalog of some of the world’s best DJs right at your fingertips, literally. Fit Radio has also given me the opportunity to share music with all the Fit Radio members around the world.  Fit Radio is the premier music provider for fitness goers anywhere and everywhere.  It’s probably one of the best mobile apps EVER!

Getting To Know Your Favorite FIT Radio DJs: ### (Pound Pound Pound)

I got to have a chat with the DJ duo Pound Pound Pound (made up of Jeremy Rhodes and Josh Wren). Their close friendship and mutual love of music got them to where they are now, producing successful Dubstep and Electro House mixes and even throwing in a bit of Moombahton! Read on to discover more about one of our favorite DJ duos, Pound Pound Pound…

Where are you guys from?
West Lafayette, Indiana

Where is your favorite place to spin?
That’s hard to pick…. Maybe The Metro in Chicago or The Congress Theater

What made you guys get into music and DJing?
We both really had a passion for music. So we bought turntables off
craigslist, and things escalated to where we are at now.

Favorite candy?
Jeremy-gummy worms

Josh- beef jerky

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Somewhere in Europe definitely. Probably visit our buddies in England or the Netherlands

Do you have an idol? If so, who?
We wouldn’t say we have an idol,in particular, but when we first started getting into music was in 2008 when we saw so many shows that embraced the culture. It really inspired us to become a part of the movement.

Favorite genre and/or style of music?
We can’t have just one favorite genre. It would be too constricting like a turtleneck. Our taste in music is too broad to pick just one. But the main genres we’ve been hitting lately are Trap, Moombah, Electro and Dubstep.

What is your favorite thing about being a DJ?
The reaction after you’re done and the energy surrounding the show. You can feel if the show was a good show and there’s no better feeling then knowing you made a bunch of peoples’ nights because of the bangers you were dropping.

What is your favorite track at the moment?
Either “Flex” by Heroes x Villians or the Jay Fay remix of “Ladies In The Back” by Star Slinger
  

What type of equipment do you use?
For live shows, 2 Pioneer 1000 mk3s and a Pioneer djm-800 mixer.
For production, we use Logic and Ableton.

What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
definitely music production. No matter how much you know or you think you know there’s always something to learn. But that’s what makes it so fun.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
pound pound pound

You guys have any secret talents?
FIFA… It’s our goals to become the best FIFA players out of all the producers out there haha

What do you do when you aren’t spinning?
Making original tunes, going to shows, FIFA, or taking care of LazerLou. He’s our mascot and on out EP cover…he’s our pet skunk.

Where do you guys see yourself in 10 years?
Hopefully living on a coast somewhere doing music full time. Hopefully still touring.

Do you have a New Years resolution? If so, what?
I’d say just to keep progressing…. if you’re not moving forward, then you’re falling backwards in this industry.
Our main goal is to release 2 E.P.’s this year and do some major shows.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Jeremy: If I could just get really big. Go into a room full of people and just get huge and make them all feel super uncomfortable. lol
Josh: Telekinesis… that way I could sit on my couch and write music just with my mind along with other things.

What are your thoughts on FIT Radio?
We think it’s really awesome and we are thankful to be apart of it. Thank you for providing a way to find new music and for supporting ours!

Finally the FIT Radio legend Dizzy K is back at it with “Vol. 5 (2012)”.  Don’t let the generic name fool you…this mix is hard hitting club Hip Hop through and through!  I throw this mix on during my hardest workouts of the week!
