When I’m 60 I’ll be the DJ / Piano Man… have ole’ bitties hanging on the decks drinkin’ whiskey, eating from the buffet and asking for “No Diggity…” because that was her late husband’s “pajama jammy jam.”
You KNOW that if YOLO was slang back in the day peeps like Sinatra would’ve used it in songs… at least Bobby Darin: “Theyyyy…call it YOH-LooooH… You only live once… Girrrrls want my pho-toooooh…” or maybe Harry Nilsson: “Me and my yo-loh… girls want our pho-toh.”
$ooo uhhhh… thi$ happened… 4-16-13
Every 3rd Tuesday at Delirium in SF’s Mission district DJ4AM and Marloca do thangs like this…
DJ4AM: I used to play records for my mom and my uncle while they got lifted in the kitchen, I was in the living room with all the wax, they had speakers going down the hall. I guess you can say I got my break in the Bay… 1760 Haight st, started rockin house parties in ‘81.
Jason Patrick Chavez (DJ4AM) cut his teeth doing radio, poetry jams and DJing dive bars in Fresno, California during the 90’s before moving to the Bay Area in 2001. Since then he has performed in Europe as well as across the USA. 4AM was also a member of Octavius, Black Fiction and produced “The Little Happy” for bay legend MC Dopestyle. He is now one half of production duo Opal Heights and a member of the Hip-Hop group General Assistance.
Recorded live @ Hug Life Tuesdaze, Laszlo, SF by DJ4AM, all beats by Preemo: “SALUTE.”

Got another vintage 90’s mixtape rip for y’all. Double R & G-Bo - A Whole Different Shine (Dec 1995) Mixtape ripped by yours truly. Side A is gritty boom bap Hip-Hop (Gza, Krs-1, Mobb Deep, Wu-Tang, Onyx, Cypress Hill), Side B is 80’s & 90’s R&B blends and remixes (Gwen Guthrie, Janet Jackson, Eugene Wild, Marvin Gaye, DJ Hollywood…) enjoy.
