E Da Boss just hipped me to a couple remixes done by fellow bay area and Daly City Records enlisted, Mochipet. Hitting the cusp of glicthed breaks and electro, Mochipet puts his own twist on the club hip hop track making it even more club than before. Also in the package is a nice slowed tempo breaks jam.

In support of Black History month; Raashan Ahmad, OM Records and Beyond Cinema proudly present the Give Thanks video from Raa’s solo record The Push. Directed by Byron Chan of Beyond Cinema, this video pays homage to those who had a positive impact on your life. It’s time to give back and say thank you!! We should be grateful for what we have. This song is very inspirational to me and both Raashan Ahmad and D-sharp on the beat killed it.
