HILLEL COOL J- ANOTHER ONE FROM THE VAULTS

nye-illmeasures

New Year’s Eve… a time for celebration, friends, and basically just a good old fashion time to start the year off right. I bring to you a mix from NYE 2006. This one I challenged myself to step out of just a hip-hop framework and attempted to bring in a diversity of music from funk, rock, house, etc. You’ll notice each part has it’s own distinct flavor. Anyway, I hope you enjoy and let it just remind you to sit back, smile, and have a good new year.

Hillel Cool J – Diggin’ In The Vault

In honor of the pictures of old parties and flyers, I bring you two mixes from the vault. The first is only the beginning of a mix I did for a night at Lava Lounge. For over a year, illmeasures held down Saturday nights on Damen Ave. I enjoyed that time so much… the crew always there, loads of friends, strangers… all feeling the joy and vibes of our night. It was a great time indeed. This is one of the best beginnings of a mix I did, where the rest fell off so only I get to hear the complete version. Next, I drop to you another infamous Halloween party mix. Again, illmeasures just keep things dropping on Halloween year after year. Some truly great times. This one is from 2006.
