DJ Cable - A Tribe Called Quest Video Mix

Following on from Essential Warm Up Vol. 3, I've decided to further explore the realm of video DJ-ing. This time around, I've put together a video tribute to one of the greatest rap groups of all time - A Tribe Called Quest, containing their entire video discography, plus a couple of interviews thrown in to break things up a little bit.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did putting it together. If you visit the Vimeo page you can also download the mix to stick on your mobile device/laptop/tablet/etc.

BONUS! The Notorious B.I.G. "Party And Bullshit" (DJ Cable Remix)

I made this a while back, and decided to upload it to pay tribute the other week for March 9th. If you like it, you can purchase the clean, dirty and instrumental versions all for £1 from my Bandcamp page. 

That's a pretty good deal if you ask me!

The League Presents: Essential Warm Up Vol. 3 (Mixed By DJ Cable)

It's been a while since I dropped Volume Two, but here's the latest instalment of the Essential Warm Up series.

Keeping with the Hip Hop/R&B theme, I decided to put together a seleciton of mid-to-late 90's and 00's tracks to make your working lives easier from 10-11pm. Those five hour sets can be a killer, sometimes...

As usual, the mix has minimal tags, so it's club-friendly. We'll be moving into other genres soon, with other League members contributing to the series.

Whether you want something to help kickstart your night, or simply listen to whilst you're getting ready to go out, we've got you covered! I hope you enjoy the mix.

BONUS! Here's the video version for you to watch (and download).

Slighty different tracklist. Same great taste

Beyoncé - Drunk In Love (DJ Cable Edit)

Forgot to post this the other week...

Here's a slowed-down trippy edit of Mrs. Carter's latest club smash from yours truly...

Hope you dig it.

DJ Cable x BassXchange Mix Competition I've entered another DJ competition. The BassXchange project is part of the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, and the organisers have teamed up with Mixcloud to pick one lucky DJ/producer to play in South Africa next month, as well as network with the cream of the crop from the South African electronic music scene.

My entry is an hour's worth of Trap, Grime, UK Bass and some Hip Hop (new and old) , containing some of my own music/remixes, plus an exclusive, never-heard-before track!

All I need is 50 plays minimum on the mix below to qualify for the final stage, which will be judged by the festival organisers, as well as headliners Benga, and Dirty Paraffin.

Please listen and spread the word guys. If you can like/leave a comment on the page as well, that'd be even more awesome of you... If I win, I will bring back some biltong for everyone!

Migos x Drake - Trophies (DJ Cable Remix)

Happy New Year, everyone... I hope you all had a great Festive Season.

I've decided to be a lot more proactive with bootlegs/edits/remixes (and original releases) this year, so here goes...

Drake's new track Trophies has been making some noise 'pon di internet this past week; even more so since Migos jumped on it. I thought I'd have a go at remixing the track, making it more suitable for the Trap/EDM crowd. The end result is this...

DJ Cable - 2013 AD (Hip Hop Mix) once again, it's that time of the year where I present my annual Hip Hop round up. This year, it's a 2 hour special...

Once again, it's been another interesting and exciting year, with the standard ratchet club tracks, to the whole EDM/Twerk craze, the fresh new music emerging from the West Coast, plus a load of dope 90's influenced cuts, as well as great music from the UK.

Yes, some of the more obvious club tracks are not on the mix, but it's not about putting together a generic selection of the same club tracks that every other DJ is rinsing... As a result, there's definitely something for everyone on this mixtape. Big ups to Lazlow for the introduction as well.

Honorable mentions go to Giggs, J Spades, ItsNate, Mac Miller, CJ Fly, Riff Raff, Logic, Eminem, Flatbush Zombies, Run The Jewels, Trae Da Truth, Black Milk and Freddie Gibbs. It's a shame I couldn't fit you all in to this mix.

Anyhow, whether you're on the move, chilling at home, or cruising the streets of Los Santos in your Truffade Adder, I hope you enjoy this mixtape.

Thanks for listening/downloading, and feel free to leave your comments. Big up.

Sampha - Too Much (DJ Cable Re-Rub)

Sampha's "Too Much" is definitely one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've heard in a long while. Drake did a pretty good job of sampling it for his album, but the original version with just the piano is incredibly haunting.

I wanted to make it more DJ-friendly, but keep the same, stripped back vibe, so here's my edit of this amazing track.
