Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2012 by DJ E-Yo

Theophilus London
To kick off AiMT 2012, I got some help from the homey DJ E-Yo, who hosts KXUA's The Concrete Schoolyard. That's a hip-hop show I created around 10 years ago. I held it down for four years (tops), but E-Yo has kept the name going for an additional six. By all accounts, the show is his now, and he owns it like I never owned it. Check it out on the KXUA stream every Thursday night from 8 until 10 pm (Central), and/or watch the KXUA blog for podcasts.

People have been grilling me about year-end features, and I appreciate the interest. I wanted to start rolling them out before the New Year, but travel, snow storms, power outages, and 60-hour work weeks have stalled me quite a bit. Luckily I have all the features done and will be posting one per day over the next week or so. Thanks for your patience!

Full list after the jump.

Baby Armie, Mandelhog and DJ E-Yo at JR's tomorrow



Just a quick heads up that I'll be DJing alongside Mandelhog (Messy Sparkles' DJ alias) and The Concrete Schoolyard's DJ E-Yo. It will be a highly eclectic night. No telling what we'll end up playing.

Here are a couple of goodies in the meantime, including an unfinished remix for Architecture in Helsinki I got commissioned to do back in '07.

Messy Sparkles - "Thank God"

Tanner Beam's last set in Fayetteville

Tanner Beam & Baby Armie at SpeakeasyRSVP on Facebook
Check out Sayonara Set, a FREE AiMT-hosted party, on Thursday night at Speakeasy. Tanner and I will be doing sets, and Tanner is moving away soon, so this will be his last set as a Fayetteville resident. We figured this would be a good excuse to host a laid-back non-dance party and throw down some mellow joints. So leave your dancin' shoes at home and come out and sip on some $1 wine (until 11:30) and flirt with hawt locals.

Bombay Brouhaha 2 Tomorrow Night

Bombay Brouhaha 2
The first Bombay Brouhaha was a huge success, so it was inevitable that we would have another. This will almost certainly be our last Bollywood dance party, so for those of you who missed the first one, tomorrow night will be your only opportunity to see/hear/taste what all the fuss is about! Props to KXUA (our official sponsor), Fayetteville Flyer, Ozarks at Large, Friends of India, and other local media/entities for helping us get the word out.

Two reasons to get their early: 1) Catering by our friends at Zauq Pakistani-Indian Cuisine & Grill and 2) $1 wine until 11:30 p.m. Hope to see you there!

There are a few other related events happening this weekend. Tonight, check out KXUA's 10th anniversary, and Friends of India will host Holi Celebrations bright and early tomorrow. Also, here's the party sampler in case you missed it. It's all vintage Bollywood disco. (The party will feature primarily newer bhangra and Bollywood, but we'll have some oldies in there for good measure.)

Bombay Brouhaha Party Sampler Mix

Bombay Brouhaha Party Sampler

Here's a teaser of what you'll be able to hear next Friday, February 5, at Bombay Brouhaha, an official AiMT Bollywood-themed dance party. This will be the second-ever AiMT party, and it will be an altogether different vibe than the first. I'll be throwing down vintage Bollywood (and Lollywood) disco, boogie, funk, etc. Rev. Stiles will cover newer bhangra, and our boy Vivek will tackle modern Bollywood. This particular 30-minute teaser is all disco:

Two key points to keep in mind about this party: 1) It's 18 and up, and 2) FREE ENTRY (unless you're under 21, then there's a $5 cover). It's going down at Speakeasy in Fayetteville and will kick off at 10 p.m. Keep an eye on the Facebook event page for soon-to-be-announce drink specials. Endless props to KXUA for giving this show formal sponsorship.
