Holy crap so much has happened in the last couple of months that I completely forgot to update y’all on my newest releases! On January 1st I released “2020 Can Suck It” and just about a week ago I also announced the February 1st release of my upcoming beat tape: “Chonky Fonk“! So yeah, lots of new beats to keep you occupied until the next drop. You can listen to a preview track from “Chonky Fonk” and pick up “2020 Can Suck It” right now at music.djrobzilla.net
BUT THAT’S NOT EVERYTHING. Now you can also snag a VIP Membership to DJ Robzilla’s music! For $3/month, you get all my latest beats a full two weeks early before anyone else plus a free beat tape of your choice from my Bandcamp catalog once per month. And for $10/month you get access to select stems for my beats when they are available PLUS ask a question in my Discord channel or Bandcamp community section and I’ll respond with a video answer! Up to 2 videos per month per person.
SONIC BOOM! Here comes another beat tape to slap in your favorite media player and nod your head to. Out now, is my newest instrumental beat tape: “An Evening with Reginald The Rangoon”. Is his top-hat made of his flesh or is his flesh made of top-hat? Reginald screams, for he does not know.
I crafted this beat tape as a true labor of love. I dug up some gems from the archives and doctored them up with some mastering love, whipping out my increasingly polished skills in Ableton. Speaking of, did you know that Ableton is running a promotion right now that’ll get you a free upgrade to the latest version of Ableton when you upgrade from 10? I swear this isn’t an ad, I am only doing my part to help keep producers sounding fresh.
I made this beat tape in the hopes that those who would listen to it would do the right thing: Eat the rich.
Peep the video preview of “Monocles Up” here:
Listen to “Cane Strut” on SoundCloud here:
You can even follow my music on Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, and more by visiting my HyperFollow page so you can bump my beat tapes in the car on the way to work.
Although, buying my music from Bandcamp is by far the best way to support: so visit music.djrobzilla.net and gently apply pressure to the follow button to receive occasional updates from me when I release new music.
And what’s that faint whistling on the horizon…? Is that… the brewings of a beat tape coming on New Years Day? It MUST be. Official announcement coming this December 15th.
Another year, another amazing Pirate Camp! If you aren’t aware of it, Pirate Camp is an annual event thrown by the Never Say Never Foundation, which is a nonprofit dedicated to helping amputees. Once a year they gather together to foster a sense of community and belonging among this inspiring group of people, by teaching amputee children nautical survival skills, sailing, and teamwork.
After all their hard work on the high seas, Never Say Never serves dinner and then throws a MEGA DOPE PIRATE PARTY!! The above audio recording is an hour excerpt from the dancing portion of the night, after the awards ceremony ends.
Which, speaking of the awards ceremony… it is always a completely mind blowing experience seeing the heartfelt generosity of the Never Say Never crew bless kids with new sports prosthetics. They enable them to walk, run, play sports, and even swim. This year, they even gave out their first prosthetic hand with articulated fingers, made with a 3-D Printer.
It is absolutely stunning how Never Say Never is changing people’s lives. Pirate Camp is a place full of compassion and togetherness, and I am honored and humbled to be able to participate every year. Please enjoy this VERY special recording!
A few months ago I played at Summer 72’s Silent Disco, and had an UTTER BLAST. I must say, the Summer 72 festival was one of the best organized, most fun and engaging music festivals I have been to in Gainesville… probably ever.
And the Silent Disco was the cherry on top. This was for real my first time doing a Silent Disco, so I was a bit nervous… not really knowing what to expect. But once I got started, I REALLY enjoyed the format. Being locked away in my headphones let me focus on my mixing and crowd engagement in a way that can be difficult when the club is lit and the speakers are set to 11.
Besides that, I had the good fortune of checking out Zach Deputy’s set, and BOY is that dude a rare talent! If you’ve never seen him, he basically uses his custom designed looping setup to create improvised jams that are always surprising and incredibly danceable. If you ever have a chance to peep his set, I HIGHLY recommend it.
And I don’t wanna forget to give a shout to my homies from Locochino burnin’ down the other Silent Disco set on the main stage. Bananas! But for real, the other DJs and acts were fire too… Dillon Rose, Electric Kif, Anubis… what a night!
