DJ Hourglass - Think Outside The Clock, Vol. 2 [New Mix]


Vol. 1 received a ton of love from you all, so I made sure to spend even more working on "Think Outside The Clock, Vol. 2." Just like the first installment, Vol. 2 is mostly comprised of remixes from my favorite DJs and producers, but this one is more representative of my experience in the Atlanta club scene. It also features an impromptu live remix of Jhené Aiko's "Stranger" by yours truly.

Download and stream Vol. 2 below, and hit the jump for a full track listing! Be sure to show love on my Soundcloud, Facebook, and Twitter!

[New Mix] DJ Hourglass - Think Outside The Clock, Vol. 1


My last mix The Pregame got a great response, so I didn't want to leave the G's waiting forever for the next!

What started as an experimental practice mix of some of my favorite remixes turned into the first volume of Think Outside The Clock, a different take on a few classic and some hit records. Stevie Wonder and Tyga may not seem to be a likely pairing, but trust me. Take a ride through the decades and genres as I deliver a quick half hour mix that's sure to have you moving.


Hit me with comments on TwitterSoundcloud or Facebook! Thanks for the love... d(^_^)b

[New Mix] DJ Hourglass - The Pregame


I know, I know. It's been entirely too long since my last mix, but The Pregame was definitely worth the wait. I've got a fresh set-up courtesy of my new Pioneer DDJ-SX's and I'm ready for all my G's to hear what I've been cooking up.

Whether you're having a ratchet night in or getting ready to head out tonight, enjoy! Featuring a handful of remixes, new music from and up and comers August Alsina, Forte Bowie and Alja KaMillion along with club favorites by T.I., Young Jeezy, and Wale, The Pregame is in full effect.

The-Dream - "Tron" + 'Parental Advisory' With DJ Mick Boogie


The-Dream had some venting to do, so he put on his shit talking hat and decided to spit over his new single "Tron." The beat's hard and the rhymes are on par with most club rappers so I'm not mad at this one. IV Play is set to drop this May.



On "Tron," Dream claims he'll be hot for a century, and just to look back at how deep his solo career goes, check out his new mix Parental Advisory with the talented DJ Mick Boogie.

The Melker Project - "(2) Chain (z)" ft. Fleetwood Mac & 2 Chainz


The best mashups are the ones that come from left field. Who would've thought that 2 Chainz and Fleetwood Mac together could create something this dope? Scott Melker, that's who.
Fleetwood Mac is one of the greatest bands ever. Producers rarely remix Fleetwood Mac. Why you ask? Most remixers and mashup artists focus solely on what is “hot” now – you know, pop songs and EDM “hits.” The Melker Project wanted to buck the trend and introduce mashup fans to some of the timeless classics that often go untouched in remix culture. You know, GOOD songs.

“Skeetwood Mac” is the first in a series of EPs being released by The Melker Project, each focusing on a different classic artist. As the name implies, this EP is comprised of five Fleetwood Mac songs, each mashed up with Hip Hop and R&B standards.

This track features the Fleetwood Mac classic "The Chain" mixed with a 2 Chainz instrumental and 3 2 Chainz verses. "The (2) Chain (z)." Clever, right?


Just because it's amazing, hit the jump to listen to The Melker Project 2, a 52 minute mix in which Melker uses over 200 tracks for our attention deficient enjoyment.

G's Use Emoticons Radio: The Re-Up (Mixed By @DJHourglass)


I took a little sabbatical from blogging late last year to shift my focus a little more from reporting what kind of music was out there to creating. While I plan to continue sharing great music with all my loyal G's out there, look forward to more mixes which I intend to make better with each and every edition.

During my brief break, I put together The Re-Up, which a lot of people seemed to enjoy and pass around. Since it's the weekend it's the perfect time to give this a spin and take a nice, healthy shot of Turnup juice. Check out the rest of the repertoire on Mixcloud and be sure to let your support be known!

Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 17: DeucePolar


I know. I know. It's been FOREVER since I gave you a new GUE mix. Thankfully, there's been good reason for my hiatus. I've booked more gigs, I was promoted to Music Editor of TheWellVersed.com, revamped my look, and created an inaugural mix for TWV that has been streamed/downloaded over a total of 1000 times. Now that deserves a :-D.

To show my appreciation for all of those who have been riding with me (whether it was when I started the site last July or as recent as yesterday), I'm giving you nothing but over an hour and a half of party joints for your weekend.

Enjoy Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 17 (inspired by my friend who just celebrated her 22nd birthday), which features new music from G.O.O.D. Music, Ab-Soul, 2 Chainz, DJ Drama, Rick Ross, Future, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., and more! Download and detailed track list after the jump.

Bootleg Kev - #TheHairWeaveKiller (60 Minutes of 2 Chainz)


I'm right with you Bootleg Kev. A lot of people question my tastes when I admit that 2 Chainz is one of my favorites out right now, but I could give negative one f**ks. For all the Gs who appreciate the sophisticated and not so sophisticated ignorance of Mr. Tity 2 Necklaces himself, enjoy the Vegas DJ's hour long mix, #TheHairWeaveKiller.

Mister Cee's Nate Dogg Tribute On Hot 97


For today's Hot 97 Throwback At Noon mix, Mister Cee paid tribute to Nate Dogg, who passed away exactly one year ago from a stroke. Hard to believe that an entire year has passed already since this tragedy, but at least we can celebrate the legacy of the California hook king.



R.I.P. Nate Dogg.

Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 16: Meet Glass!


A LOT has changed since I dropped Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 15 in January.  The site has grown tremendously and the most noticeable changes are the brand new logo, layout and mascot.  You've probably already noticed him/her already, but consider GUE Radio, Vol. 16 an introduction to Glass, The Gangsta Emoticon.

Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 16 features much of the new music posted on the site within the past month, and like I always say, this one is my best mix yet.  With a diverse selection of artists ranging from Big K.R.I.T. to Azealia Banks and Meek Mill to M.I.A., I think you'll really enjoy this one.

Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 12: Da Art Of Storytelling


Gangstas, it's been a while! Soooo, yours truly, DJ Hourglass, decided to put something special together for Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 12.  I present... Da Art of Storytelling (Part 1).  Hip Hop storytelling is an art form that few rappers have mastered, but when done right, the story can be so clever or shocking that you're stuck sitting, thinking about it.

Of course I included storytelling pros like Slick Rick, The Notorious B.I.G., Pac, Common and Nas, but there are some new names in the mix as well including J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T., and Kendrick Lamar. Check out Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 12: Da Art of Storytelling below and hit the jump for a full tracklisting!

What a lot of people fail to realize is how long Phonte's been in the game.  His 10 year career has spanned from his days with Little Brother (both with and without 9th Wonder), The Foreign Exchange,  his album with Zo!, and his solo project.

For a "crash course" in everything Phonte, check DJ Flash Presents The Best of Phonte, a 70 track mix of some of Phonte's dopest verses.
