As if there isn’t enough to be thankful for this food filled Thanksgiving weekend, Om is hookin’ you up with a FREE download of Colette’s newest mix! This podcast features a solid hour of some funky dance music jams with booty shakin’ beats and smooth vocals from your girl Colette. If your jeans are fitting a little tighter this morning due to a some extra post turkey-day cushion, I would recommend that you go to the podcast section of the Om site, download this FREE podcast to your iPod and hop on that tread-mill, or better yet, grab the homies, turn up your speakers and shake of them pounds! Either way, enjoy it because not only does it sound good, but its FREE!
Happy Listening :)
01 – Colette “What Will She Do For Love” (live performance)
Sometimes voices just need to be heard. That’s what a few of your favorite DJ’s think. It’s time to spread the word. Think about it — I watched this video and posted it for all you lovely folks to take a look at. Then you turn around and show it to you favorite people, and then they show it to theirs…. you get where I am going with this. Its the small things we can do that bring light to some serious situations happening all around us. Watch as world renowned artists such as Louie Vega, Mark Farina, Miguel Migs, DJ Colette, DJ Dan and more speak about the AIDS crisis and give a voice to African children orphaned by AIDS.
A bit about NextAid — NextAid is a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization committed to developing and implementing innovative solutions to the challenges facing African children.

There’s nothing like a new mix to brighten your long workday. That’s why when this promo mix from San Francisco’s own — Worthy, came across my desk I had to post it for you all.
The mix, “Station Grape” skates the line between techno, tech-house, and minimal and features his upcoming new music on including his December Anabatic release Madcap.
Worthy is no stranger to the music game, after moving to San Francisco in 2001 he set up his studio and began producing and Djing around the city. Teaming up with Dirtybird, and eventually launching his own label Anabatic Records Worthy has taken his musical musings to whole new level. His remix work has shown up on Curfew, Utensil, and Tentigo Records, as well as DJ charts across the world.
It was a big week for Mike Monday’s ‘Catnip’ video. A couple weeks ago iTunes featured it as their video of the week. Some loved it, some hated it…. Mike had a few words to say about it himself, and I couldn’t agree more.
Take a read….
The hubris of my last post is worthy of a Greek tragedy. After reading the frankly hilarious Catnip video reviews on iTunes US, I have started to wonder whether I really meant what I said. How could anyone get so angry about something as harmless and fun as Catnip? I can’t help but think that the more vitriolic reviews say more about the reviewer than the video itself…….
