So this is where we’ve been hanging out online to play music. So why don’t you come on by the room and hang out, meet some people and listen to some good music.

PS. Come play, We got BASS & Cookies!



New DJ Sharpe mix Now Available!

by thedj on May 18, 2012

Here’s a new mix I’ve put together. Check it out and Feel the Bass!


Watch this Vocalist!

by thedj on May 11, 2012

Here’s a track you should definitely check out simply because her voice is amazing. The vocals are sung by Khalada Smith, she’s an upcoming singer who has a huge range and a great voice. So I definitely suggest taking a listen and downloading the track here. You’ll thank me for turning you on to this great singer before she gets picked by a major. You’ll definitely be hearing a lot more from her in the future and if I get my way you’ll probably be hearing her over some Bass sometime soon.

You heard it here first!

Get it on iTunes


GlobalGrind is confirming this very sad news.  One of my heroes growing up Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys has passed this morning after a long bout with cancer. The Beastie BoysLicensed to Ill‘ was one of the first albums I ever bought when I was first started collecting vinyl. The Beasties were definitely trend setters in their own right and evolved with the times but always stayed true to their roots.

CyanogenMod 9 Music Player has been Released

by djsharpe on January 17, 2012

The CyanogenMod music player is now available for download. The app will be in the market soon, but for now, you will have to download and manually install it via the link below. Why use this app over the stock Google Music app? For a few reasons.

  • Long pressing and flinging gets you special actions
  • You can search for songs in the market from almost any screen
  • Share tracks with social outlets
  • Customize the notifications music player
  • It can easily be themed, meaning themes are on the way
  • Shaking your phone or flipping it can activate special actions
  • So much more…

One thing to note – this will not pull in your Google Music collection and is only for tracks on your device. To my knowledge, Google has not opened up that service to anyone, so until they do, you’ll have to load music onto your phone in order to take advantage of apps like these.

Download:  CM_Music.apk

Install just as you would any other non-market application. Download, tap when finished, install, enjoy.

*Note – This more than likely will not work on anything that isn’t running Ice Cream Sandwich.


Dealing with Bin/Cue Files on a Mac

by djsharpe on January 1, 2012

This morning I came across this and figured I’d post it up here for anybody else who may come across this. Once in a while you may run across CD images in the format of a .bin file and .cue file. These are CDRWin images which can’t (as far as I know) be easily read on the Mac. A little shortcut I found is to open the .cue file with Toast Titanium as if you were going to burn it, which Toast Titanium can do , but choose File -> Save As Disc Image instead. Toast Titanium
will prompt you for the location to save the disc image, then dump the file there. Drop the resulting .toast file into Toast’s Disc Image section and hit Mount, and the data from the disc image (and thus the original .bin/.cue image) will be mounted on your Mac without burning them to a CD or DVD first. It’s a bit of a long way around, but it works, and might save you a disc.


Rooting the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

by djsharpe on December 29, 2011

So I just got a Galaxy Tab 8.9 with Honeycomb 3.2 pre-installed and I really like the OS except for the bloatware that seems to eat up the battery faster than I’d like. So I decided to go root and get rid of the bloatware myself and tweak a few things to my liking. Here’s the steps:

1. Download and Install the Samsung Drivers for your device. Install Kies, or the latest mobile drivers.
2. Download Da_G’s modded kernel…-kernel-v2.tar
2. Download Odin 1.85
3. Open Odin 1.85 as administrator
4. Place the modded kernel .tar file in the PDA slot. (Make sure you do not have any boxes in the options panel checked besides the ones that were checked when opening the program – should only be auto reboot and f.reset time)
5. Place the tablet in download mode. Hold vol up + vol down and hold power until the device powers on into download mode. Hit volume up to proceed after the warning screen
6. Plug the tablet into the computer on a main usb slot and it will be detected by Odin in one of the ID:COM slots (will appear as yellow)
7. Hit Start – the modded kernel should will be flashed to the tablet. Tablet will restart.
8. Go into market and download the Superuser App.

Optional – you can flash the stock kernel back using steps 3-7 above.…r-sgh-i957.tar

Changes in Da_G’s Kernel

su, busybox added to ramdisk
script to install busybox and su at boot-up
init.d support for running init.d scripts at bootup
stock android bootanimation (so you can run custom boot animations)

The Bass That Ate Miami

by djsharpe on December 21, 2011


Miami is getting a proper documentary about the beginnings of the Miami Bass Sound. The 80’s and early 90’s were a special time down in South Florida when Miami embraced that 808 kick drum that we have all grown to live and love. I personally can’t wait for the release of this one so stay tuned and check out the trailers!
