Happy Anniversary “2001”

18 years ago..I was running around all over trying to find my place,  paying my dues in this complex puzzle called show business plus everyday life in general. A couple of years earlier, I heard rumblings of a  release in the making and as a result was very blessed to be at the right place at the right time to land a gig as an intern at Interscope; just in time for this iconic release to be unearthed (Thank You Mike Heat for the opportunity and believing in me …Salute). What’s funny is that I wasn’t looking for a gig.. It just happened because I was looking for white label promos to break. It was very organic how it all happened. Bear in mind, I was moonlighting at Virgin-EMI (but managed to work equally hard for both imprints and other indie projects). I was very excited to work behind the scenes in street promotion and doing the leg work right next to an awesome collective for this release and future classics for the label. I still listen to this album during my workouts and a sea of memories are instantly revisited. One of the most sonically tuned and clean productions that raised the bar. Happy Anniversary #drdre  #2001 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 #unique74 #djaski #flashbackfriday 


Over the weekend..

As the holiday seasons approach, I’m working 10x harder in my weekly routine. I cut the white potatoes and white rice for a few months in addition to no creatine or protein powder for a year. Drinking lots of alkaline water and sneaking in 8hrs of sleep to replenish. Cheers. 


Unique74 remembers..Fats Domino..

As “Pops” (Louis Armstrong) introduced the Dixieland sound in the innovations of Jazz, Fats Domino brought the infectious melodies to Rhythm and Blues which birthed what we know now as Rock n’ Roll.  He paved the way..Rest Peacefully Fats Domino..standing ovation..


Unique74 remembers..Robert Guillaume 

First Class all the way..he made us proud and represented the very best in artistry. Thank You Mr Robert Guillaume..fly easy..
