Table Top Racing World Tour Released on Xbox One Today

Yo Squad….it’s my birthday…and as many of you know, the Table Top Racing World Tour Video Game has been a huge project for 2016/2017.  For a limited time, as in TODAY, you can get the full soundtrack mix and singles totally FREE😉 Go here [Link] and use the coupon code [YODAY].  Yes that’s right, the mix my by myself and DJ ShOOey plus all 39 tracks of funk filled bass heavy goodness from yours truly and a gaggle of pals including Dub Pistols, DJ Fixx, Dubaxface, Mutantbreaks and many more.


Now, today is a special day for gamers too as my friends at Playrise Digital are releasing it today on Xbox.  The Xbox One release follows the game’s launch on PlayStation 4 and PC in May 2016.

The Xbox One version includes all content released to date. The fanbase was split on previous platforms because you could only host and play multiplayer games with others who had the same DLC packs. There’s also voice-com support in multiplayer races and lobbies.

There are two major differences that make Table Top Racing: World Tour on Xbox One stand apart from its previous incarnations:

1. Playrise have rolled all the content released to date into one awesome value bundle. On previous platforms, players could only host and play multi-player games with other users that had the same DLC packs. Multiplayer ‘fragmentation’ will not be an issue for Xbox One gamers.

2. Playrise have added voice-com support in multiplayer races and lobbies – how better to celebrate a crushing victory than to taunt a rival with a good bit of banter?!

Table Top Racing: World Tour has already been downloaded over 4.5 million times across both Steam for Windows PC and PlayStation® Network for PlayStation®4 since its launch in 2016. Table Top Racing: World Tour has proudly earned itself an average of 4.23 out of 5 stars from over 25,000 ratings on the PlayStation® Network.

In addition to the extensive single player mode, players can jump online and challenge up to 8 friends with the vindictive-yet-addictive multi-player combat mode. Find out who is the ultimate Table Top Racer!

Pint-Sized, Powered-Up Racing has never looked so good or been this much fun!

Coast to Coast EP by Wes Smith, Featuring Goldillox

What’s uppppp everybody…New Jams out today.  Official blurb below;)

On the “Coast to Coast EP” Wes Smith teams up with Goldillox to bring you a 4 track original EP chock full of fresh beats, bass and vocals. “Shadow of a Kiss” gets the floor moving with a moody, kick heavy bass roller. “Out of the Nothing” keeps the deep vibe in check and steps it up with some signature gritty bass. ”Alive” picks up the tempo and turns sunny side up with big kicks, percussion, and the all around feel good vibes. Last but not least, “My Sound” rounds the EP out on a genre bending tangent for the festival crowd.

It’s Wes Smith Yo – The Album Remixed Vol 1 : DJ Smooth Interview

Hey hey friends, today I’m kicking off the interview series for my forthcoming remix album.  First up is DJ Smooth out of Orlando.   I met up with Mike about 6 months back b/w of the Funky Flavor crew who brought me out in the summer.   He recently reworked “Hands Up” and then had a nice chat with our head field agent about all things BASS…  Peep the interview below…

Interview by Kelly Ross | Agent 137

Tell me about your start:
I started the Scratch Academy in Miami about 4 years ago where I learned the basics on vinyl, etc for 6 months and then I moved to Orlando.

How did you come to do a remix for this album?
I met Scotty Frazier [Funky Flavor Breakbeat Culture] and I showed Scotty a few projects so Scotty introduced me to Wes Smith and he hit me up to do a remix.

What’s the DJ Smooth spin on the remix?
My style brings in electro and trap elements with a breaks flavor.

What else are you working on right now?
Goldillox [Danielle Wells] and I have a new project called HYPER MONK3Y and we have about 20 tracks together already. We are looking to drop that closer to the Winter Music Conference in Miami, it’s really high energy and a lot of fun. Also, I have another collab with a friend in Tampa we just did a show together for Halloween as HardCastle & McCormick. We work really well together and have a darker trap style.

Thank you, Mike! Good luck on your new projects, the release and see you in Miami in March.

Interview with Trenton Thompson of Tech D Records

Aloha friends…A few days ago I made a post about Heart Break feat. Goldillox, my latest remix project to hit the streets.  Here’s the much anticipated full interview with Tech D label boss, Trenton Thompson.

Interview by Kelly Ross | Agent 137

I sat down with Trenton Thompson Owner/Operator/Producer/DJ at Tech D Records aka Aeon Flex to discuss their new release Heart Break EP Feat. Goldillox by Aeon Flex & Shade K, what it means to be a label owner and more.

Why did you decide to start a label?

I started with a marketing degree, I knew I wanted to be in business but at the time I didn’t go into it fro music related purposes but it seemed like a degree that would make sense. The hands on experience really helped me start the label. Also being a DJ the better part of 20 years,  I realized the market was being flooded by producers. I was submitting tracks but had become sick of the bureaucracy waiting for release dates just to hope that it may get good exposure. At that point I decided to start my own label to speed up the release process myself. I started slow with 3 artists and went on a mass marketing spree, I ordered hundreds of giveaways and just gave them away. We will be 2 years old come January and we now we have 125 people on the label.

Tech D2

Tell us in layman’s terms what it means to be on a label. What do you do for the artists on Tech D?

It depends on the artist level, we do everything from signing aspiring artists to get a portfolio started, to catapulting established artists on world tours. Some like Noel Sanger and Shade K manage themselves but usually we manage the up and coming with artist development to prevent what I call a “failure to launch”. Developing them in ways they do not know how to do or access.

Do you have any advice for aspiring producers and djs?
If we reject someone’s tune we try to do it with finesse and send out tutorials because some people take it as the end of the world. My advice is don’t be discouraged if you don’t hear back, everyone is busy it may take time. You may have spent all this time on one track but ready to come back with 3-4 more tracks if the first one hits and don’t stop promoting yourself. Build up a portfolio and doing that comes with experience and confidence, just don’t expect a lot of royalties when you are building your résumé.

Let’s talk about the release how did you choose Goldillox for the vocals?

I had already been working with Shade K and Royal Blood but when I first got to Florida I saw Goldillox perform at the Old Firestone. Her stage presence was absolutely jaw dropping and I knew I wanted to work with her immediately. Once we started working with her I realized she didn’t need much development at all and the rest is history.

GOLDILLOX

How did you choose Wes for the remix?

I have been playing Wes’s tracks since I started playing breakbeat and I kept seeing more and more Juice shirts around. I thought it would be a great political musical move to bring him in and do a track with him. There is a reason why he is winning awards, he is versatile and has been building a tremendous status along with people of great stature giving him global support. Even so, he has great humility and doesn’t have a cocky bone in his body. We even met his mom – most people need to realize we are all just people. Usually the ego is all on the DJ side but if this music machine went bankrupt tomorrow it would simply just bring everyone together – again we are all just people here.

What’s your motto?
FAMILY VALUES, we are all one, it’s NOT A competition.

I want to mention that we talked about supporters and family during the interview. Trenton and I both would like to give out a special shout to Adam Butterfield (_040_)  and Angel Dejournett-O’Dell:

Angel & Adam – they know to put on the game face and Tech D is indebted to them, they have definitely helped me grow and mature. All people have a role in this and they are true conduits and are just as important in that role to make connections.

Heart Break Feat. Goldillox (Wes Smith Remix) by Aeon Flex & Shade K

It’s with great pleasure I announce the release of Heart Break Feat. Goldillox (Wes Smith Remix) by Aeon Flex & Shade K.   I had the good fortune to meet Aeon Flex over a few irish beverages during my trip to play the Revelation party in Tampa this year.  It’s always fun to meet collaborators in person and he’s a cool cat.  A bit prior to that, I had the opportunity to meet Goldillox when I played for the Funky Flavor in Orlando this summer.  What a sweet person and talented vocalist.  So with that introduction, grab it on Beatport or check out the Soundcloud clips below including the original, my remix and the Alekay remix…enjoy!
