Last week I serviced out the MP3 to Marcus Manchild's "Cameras" freestyle. One XXL 2012 Freshmen list nomination later, here is the video. Just one reason this Freshmen list underdog deserves real consideration in my opinion.

It doesn't matter what profession you're in. It doesn't matter what race or gender you are. Everyone, at one time or another, has to deal with vampires, leaches, fakes and "haters". The only thing that separates you from them is how you respond.

Timothy Rhyme has teamed up with Sacramento emcee, KomplexOne (Mindspeakers), and San Diego producer Lee Azon to bring you a song designed to help you stay positive. We all encounter people that doubt you or speak badly about you but we don't have to succumb to their ignorance or negativity. Simply turn that energy into a driving force to succeed and be GRATEFUL FOR THE HATEFUL.

Please click the link below to hear and DL the song. Please follow Timothy Rhyme and KomplexOne and feel free to leave any feedback.

Press Release: Happy Hogswatch From DJ Halo!


Press Release: Happy Hogswatch From DJ Halo!

Happy Hogswatch!!! It's that non-denominational celebration time of year again... Yup yup, it's that time of the earth cycle where people exchange gifts for whatever reason they have to do so and all is merry in the world aside from the stress fo getting presents for people, long lines everywhere and traffic taht makes you think you're having a heart attack.  Other than that, it's a pretty sweet time of year...
I hope you have been well since the last letter I sent out, waaaaay back in the spring.  I have been very busy, so much so I haven't had time to tell you about it!  So where to begin...

Website
After a total overhaul and redesign, I relaunched Halodoesntsuck.com 
on July 4th with a great reception, to which I immediately and completely fell apart with keeping up with my weekly posts (as per the ususal), but frankly there is a TON of great stuff in there so I figured I'd cost for a bit until 2012.  But as you can tell from this email the kraken of the internet has awoken to finish 2011 with a bang (hopefully).  So check the site and poke around and see if you like anything, make a comment, talk about my mom (her name is MANGO btw, no lie!) and offer a suggestion as to how I can be less doldrum and more sparkle.  You smell me?

Podcasts
Like the website, my podcasts section has been a bit dusty with the updates, not to say I haven't been active, I just haven't had the time to reflect it on the site archive.  I have three recent podcast that you can stream at Rapreviews.com (shouts to DJ Flash for being a really good guy in dealing with my scattered nature) or you can check the download links below...


Broadcast and Internet shows
I have recently picked up another slot on WPKN to ressurect my old show Six Feet Deep (alt wednesdays 8-11pm) in addition to my regular Tuesday (7-9am) morning weekly show.  you can find more about the shows or stream them from WPKN's Website or if you are in the CT/MA/LI area you can get it on 89.5fm, tomorrow I will have Spits Nelson on my morning show @8:30am and the next day I will have Sidestep Complex in studio for Six Feet Deep.  Here is an archive of a REALLY great guest spot I had with the homies Paulie Think and the DIY Bandits

In addition to my broadcast show, I have been doing a Saturday web show (Kitchen Sink) on RWD.fm (2-4pm) which is basically me bugging out on the turntables for 2 hours on a Sturday afternoon; mostly good stuff, some bad, and a bit ugly at times.   Here's a link to one of my more recent shows...

Live Events
I have been laying low so to speak this year with the live events, no more weeklies or anything, but have managed to do a lot of road work and DJ some cool events as well.  I will always be doing something in and about my area or the US.  The best thing to do would be to 'like' my FB Fan Page or to follow me on Twitter to stay up on what's good as it changes alot.

Production
I have been banging out tracks left and right these days with a few items on the horizon to be released in 2012 (Tiaga EP...FINALLY!) as well.  The best look at what I have been up to production-wise is my SOUNDCLOUD page, but I have included my two favorite new remixes and most recent HALO beat for you to peruse as well...
DJ Shadow ft. Little Dragon - Scale it Back (HALO Remix)
Kay the Aquanaut ft. Sole - Kill You (HALO Remix)
HALO - Just a HALO Instrumental


Treats for the Holidays!

So in the spirit of the season here are a couple of free things to download at your lesiure...and I'm OUT!
