DJ Eleven feat. Mike Baker The Bike Maker – Every Freakin’

Every Freakin'

A new 11″ (haha) by our dear buddy DJ Eleven (Twitter / Homepage) from NYC. It’s called “Every Freakin'” features Mike Baker The Bike Maker (again – haha) and was just released a couple of days ago. I really dig this but don’t take my word on this. Listen to it yourself and check out what Joe (Eleven) has to say about it:

Over a year after starting on the project, the joint that I did with the homie Mike Baker The Bike Maker has finally hit the (digital) record stores (and their virtual shelves)! Vancouver’s Kutcorners contributed a great bassline for the original version. Mike2600, Illo + Keam, and DJ Ayres all flipped really good remixes. And, Kalani did a fantastic job bringing the artwork for it all together.

Since this is a single we do not provide you with a hq download link but highly recommend to buy this via your favorite online dealer. Know that the release includes a couple of fabulous remixes by DJ Ayres and others. You’ll find a couple of links below. If you dig the sound you’ll find a gazillion of free stuff (I smell some mixtapes) on DJ Eleven’s homepage as well as on the homepage of THE RUB which is Joe’s infamous DJ squad. But you all know that anyway. So – enjoy.

Short recap of YUM YUM Nrw w. DJ Ayres


There is honestly not a lot to say besides that it was an über-awesome schnitzelgiggen fest. In fact some people were even too awesome and so we had to let them go. DJ Ayres and I kicked it back and forth and we had such a nice time with him. Hope you make it safe to Dublin and see you soon mate.

We had a few pictures taken but I haven’t managed to talk to the photographer yet. She’s probably still asleep. But those pics will be up in no time.

Once again: thanks so much for making it mine.

YUM YUM this Sat, Nov. 21st @ 100Meister


Another YUM YUM approaching this Saturday, Nov 21st. You’ll be in for a treat with our buddy DJ Ayres from NYC and myself. After the outstanding performances of his THE RUB affiliates Cosmo and Eleven I have no doubt that Saturday will line up with those.

One thing though… and I can’t stress this out enough!! Please be an early bird!! We open up at 23 o’clock sharp and I highly recommend to be there in time. Last time we had to shut the doors at midnight cause we were sold out. And this was not the first time…

Otherwise I’m looking forward to a great night with all our friends and a gazillion of new tunes bursting in our crates.

Make sure to RSVP and follow me on Twitter http://twitter.com/tandwilliams.

See you on Saturday

Eleven is the Magic Number

Check out the lead track which is very p-funk ridden with a mellow vocal hook and sureshot 4/4 beat.(ps i am not even sure if i am supposed to post this or if this was purely intended for us djs, hmm??? – so here is only the flashplayer, k?) .
