Look Alive Shuffle (Drake vs Cupid)



Look Alive bursted on to the scene in 2018, straight into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, where it sat for 8 weeks (and still counting). Toronto rapper Drake highlights the hook on this instant hip hop gem, making it a platinum hit from the jump. Next up... Cupid. Who DOESN'T know the Cupid Shuffle? Answer: No one. Dropping in 2007, the Cupid Shuffle (surprisingly) failed to reach the top 10 (hitting #66 on the Hot 100), but has since become a staple at virtually any event that includes dancing. From bars to clubs to proms to weddings, you are all but guaranteed to hear the Cupid Shuffle at some point.

Although the sounds of these 2 songs are very different, they still flow together nicely. Starting with the hard edge street sound of Look Alive and seamlessly flowing into the upbeat Cupid Shuffle, the Look Alive Shuffle brings that energy for all the party goers. You can stream the dirty version above or at djdiamonddog.com. You can also download both the clean and dirty versions here.

X-Change - Jocking Our Swagger (H2O Mix)


Jocking Our Swagger is an electro/EDM track originally produced by DJ X-Change. It contains a hard edged dance sound to it. Although it wasn't very popular in the mainstream, it was more popular on the club circuit.

My remix of this dance track features additional vocals by both Jeff Johnson and the ever popular Flo-Rida. Although the H2O remix retains the dance sound, it does tone it down a bit into more of a dance pop type of track. It features a timeless sample from the early 80's hit, Der Kommissar by the new wave group After The Fire. You can stream the H2O remix right here or at djdiamonddog.com and you can also download it for free above. The download will be especially interesting to the DJ's because it contains an extended mix, an instrumental, an acapella and a percapella to go along with the the regular version, all encoded at 320 kbps with zero DJ tags on them.

So, be sure to check this one out and stay tuned for more mixes and mashups soon!!

T LA Rock - It's Yours (FreakMixx)




The year was 1984. This was the year that hip hop, still in it's juvenile years, was given a true classic that was a part of forming hip hop into what it is today. This was the year that T LA Rock dropped the single It's Yours with the help of Def Jam co founder Rick Ruben. The single actually dropped on Arthur Baker's independent label, Partytime, which was a division of Streetwise Records. With hip hop still in it's early years, It's Yours stood out as an underground masterpiece that would point hip hop in a completely new direction, both with production as well as lyrically.

You can sample It's Yours (FreakMixx) right here and at djdiamonddog.com. It contains a mean sample from the iconic dancehall track, Murder She Wrote by Chaka Demus & Pliers and Freaks by French Montana. Be sure to download this one for your collection right here. This remix brings together the best of both worlds, separated by nearly 30 years!!
