Next - I Still Love You (Regulated Remix)



I Still Love You originally dropped 21 years ago, in 1997, on the platinum selling classic album Rated Next, which also features the timeless hit Too Close. Combined with a rhythm that is widely recognized from Warren G's Regulate, but actually originated from Michael McDonald's I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near), Next takes on a whole new sound. With some revved up percussion and a smooth loop from McDonald's 80's classic, this is one to hear.

You can stream I Still Love You (Regulated Remix) right here & at djdiamonddog.com. And, as always, you can take full of the free download here as well.

With the new website running smoothly, expect more uploads soon. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer!!

Run DMC x the Rolling Stones - Tricky StartUp





Released only 6 1/2 years apart, it would seem that these 2 songs are from the same era. Although these 2 particular tracks are similar, Run DMC and the Rolling Stones are from very different ends of the musical spectrum.

The Rolling Stones formed in 1962 in England and are largely considered a classic rock and pop rock group. They are pioneers in rock, bringing a unique sound to the genre when rock was still young. Their single Start Me Up, was released 19 years after their formation & hit number 2 in the U.S and number 7 in the U.K. Start Me Up is possibly one of the Stones' most widely known songs.

The same year that Start Me up was burning up the charts, a group was being formed in Hollis Queens that would pioneer the entire hip hop genre in the 80's. Run DMC dropped 2 of their biggest hits on their 3rd lp, Raising Hell, one of which was the rap-rock crossover hit It's Tricky.

These 2 hits really compliment one another well. You can stream the mashup Tricky StartUp above as well as at djdiamonddog.com. You can also download it (both the regular version and an extended DJ mix) here as well.

Black & Bodak Yellow (Wiz Khalifa vs Cardi B)


download Black & Bodak Yellow (Wiz Khalifa vs. Cardi B)

Two number ones from this music era clash in this epic mashup. Black & Yellow dropped in 2010 and is featured on Wiz Khalifa's first Atlantic backed album, Rolling Papers. Then, there's Cardi B & her smash hit from 2017, Bodak Yellow, which is featured on her debut album Invasion of Privacy. Both artists have experienced much success in their respective careers.

With 2 high energy and popular tracks such as these, there's no way to avoid a great fusion. The combination of these 2 gives us a mashup entitled Black and Bodak Yellow, which features elements from each of the original songs, from beats to lyrics. If this sounds good to you, then you can stream Black & Bodak Yellow above. And, as most of you who frequent my site will already know, you can access the free download by clicking here. The download contains 4 mp3's (all untagged), clean, dirty, and intro/outro versions of each for the DJ's. It also contains an mp4 video ( which you can also stream by clicking here).

I hope everyone enjoys this mashup. I'll have more on the way!! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

 Model, artist & director Anaiyah Sunshine hails from the warm region of Dade County, located in south Florida. Addicted is her first release of the year 2018 and was an instant regional hit. It has, since, found it's way into mainstream streaming services such as Spotify and Amazon. You can learn more about Anaiyah Sunshine at her official website http://www.anaiyahsunshine.com/

I have available an RnB version, which features samples from Blu Cantrell's Hit Em Up Style and Debarge's Stay With Me. Click Here to stream the RnB Remix.I also have a slightly more uptempo tropical house remix, which has a bit more energy and is geared more towards the dancers. The tropical house version contains samples from Watch Out by 2 Chainz and Survivor's Eye Of the Tiger. Click Here to stream the TropHouse Mix. As you'd expect, both versions are available for free download right here or at djdiamonddog.com.

Zombie (ft Dolores O'Riordan)





In 1994, the Cranberries released Zombie, a protest song to the 1993 IRA bombing in Warrington, and in memory of 2 young victims, Jonathan Ball & Tim Parry. The song was the lead single from the album No Need To Argue and was a success, reaching the top of the charts in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France & Germany.

In January 2018, the heavy metal band Bad Wolves were scheduled to record a remake to the original Zombie and were going to feature the original singer and songwriter Dolores O'Riordan in the song as well. Unfortunately, O'Riordan died suddenly, while in London, before she was able to record the song. Bad Wolves released their version of Zombie as a tribute to O'Riordan and donated the proceeds to her children.

Many folks really love the original version while an equal number like the cover version as well. Either way, the song was originally supposed to be recorded with both singers involved, which is why I've added some of the original vocals from O'Riordan to the cover version, which you can stream above. You can also download it for your local library as well.
