He was a one hit wonder, but we all remember Skee-Lo (us old-heads, anyway) not getting picked in basketball and sitting in the bleachers with all the ladies instead. This song was not only good, but it became pop culture. The remix/ bootleg carries this timeless track into a new era. Come join in with me... "I wish I was a little bit taller, y'all. I wish I was a baller...."

In an era long past, there lived music that has shaped what we hear in today's society. Popular songs that are rarely heard in the new millenium, yet retain their own status in the evolution of music. Classixx captures the essence of many of these songs in a single, 15 minute mix, which contains everything from disco to funk to rock to r&b to traditional pop. You'll hear everyone from Donna Summer and Gloria Gaynor to Elvis Presley and Tom Jones in this light, but very danceable mix.
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.

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.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony released what would prove to be an iconic masterpiece.
Tha Crossroads (from the album
E. 1999 Eternal)
debuted at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified 2x
platinum. The original song was written in remembrance of Bone's friend,
Wally, but was eventually remixed to honor the death of
Eazy-E as well.
There are 3 remixes available for this classic, all have the trap sound
to them. You can stream all 3 right here or at djdiamonddog.com. You can also download them all using the link above.
Released just over a year ago, Calvin Harris' Slide has received mostly positive reviews from critics. Combining the sounds of hip hop, R&B, pop and nu-disco, the original version reached number 25 on the US Hot 100. It features 2 of the founding members of Migos (Quavo and Offset) as well as R&B artist Frank Ocean.

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.
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!!
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.
Most folks hear New York and automatically think bright lights and big city. But, the fact of the matter is that there's alot more to New York north of the iconic Big Apple. North and west of the big city you can find other iconic places such as Niagara Falls, the Thousand Islands, the Adirondacks, Syracuse basketball, Cooperstown and more. Along with a different set of scenery, there's also a unique combination of music styles to be heard up here. Although we're not urban, we love hip hop. Country and classic rock are also big up here near the Canadian border. Sprinkle in some top 40 music and you'll hear the wide range of tunes that you can regularly hear people partying to up here.
With that being said, I give you the Northern NY Party Mix... a 1 hour mix of some classic party music that I've spun up here in the region. You'll hear a little bit of everything in here and the energy will keep you moving, even if you're feeling tired. The full track listing is available below. If you're enjoying the mix, you can download it for local play on your ipod.. If you're really old school and would like a hard copy (AKA: a cd version with separate tracks), just DM me at my facebook page and I will be happy to send you a burned copy for $7.
So, whether you're from Northern NY or not, I think that you will still enjoy this combination of tracks in one mix. Thanks for your support and I look forward to dropping more mixes soon!!And remember, you can find plenty more of my mixes at djdiamonddog.com!!
In Da Club originally dropped in 2003 and has been a staple sound in any party spot ever since. It was 50's lead single from his debut studio album, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. The song enjoyed massive success, peaking all the way up (Fat Joe voice) at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was Fif's first number one hit on that chart.
Fast forward 15 years to 2018. In Da Club, which is still a signature track from 50, recieves a remix from yours truly, and it's titled In Da Club Like This. This remix takes on a more R&B type sound, retains all of it's club energy and adds on a couple of new voices... Tupac Shakur and Fat Man Scoop. The remix is a bit more upbeat, making it very friendly to the dance floor and since it has that R&B flavor to it, it is also very popular with the ladies. Included in the remix package are 4 mp3's... 2 extended untagged versions for the DJ's and 2 regular versions. Each type has both a clean & explicit mix.
