Alive and well for 2018

The rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated. 2017 was a great year for the kid. Once again it was a year of traveling, learning, growth and expanding my horizons. I’m unapologetically semi-retired from the music “game” and am enjoying the freedom and peace I’m experiencing outside the toxic environment I dwelled in for almost 3 decades. I’ve been doing some screen writing, acting, investing and pursuing other business interests but I will never stop performing at stage shows and concerts. I no longer have a passion for djing nightclubs as my lack of interest in most of the current music is probably the biggest reason. However, I still get excited to go out on stage and perform in the tradition of the legendary djs before me that inspired my career like Jam Master Jay, Scratch, etc.

In 2018 I will continue to do my thing on the wheels of steel but will venture further into the uncharted territories I am exploring. Being DJ Rondevu has afforded me many opportunities over the years and I am grateful that so many options are infront of me based on over 20 years of hard work, dedication and good relations. 2018 will be a great year for me and I hope it will be for you as well family. #CarpeDiem

     


R.I.P. NYC

they_live8 “Lets go to the City!” As a youth from Brooklyn that meant something once upon a time. Manhattan or “The City” as people who lived in the outer boroughs would call it was where everything was. Sure there were things going on where we lived but “The City” always had a special mystique to it. Going to 42nd street a.k.a. Forty Deuce or the Deuce or Greenwich Village a.k.a. the Village amongst other hot spots in Manhattan was an event to look forward to. There was an excitement in the air that had to be felt to understand. It was a melting pot of different people, scenes and cultures. You could sense danger but it only added to the experience. You had a feeling that what was going on here was only going on here and at that time it was true. How things have changed.

Recently I was in the Lower East Side to meet a few friends and hang out and while walking the streets I felt like I was in a scene from the movie “They Live”. Gentrification has hit and “The City” I once knew is now dead and gone and replaced with a sterile and hollow shell of what it was. Things can never stay the same forever but the soul and character of this once inspiring city has died. No longer does it have the charm of the greatest city in the world. It now feels like Anytown, USA with franchises and chain stores replacing the mom and pops start ups and independent businesses that were unique to New York. Many of these businesses have been forced out of their places of business to uncertain futures by skyrocketing rents and greedy landlord looking to cash in on the next corporate tenant. The array of characters that once walked the streets have mostly been replaced by zombie like people stareing at their smart phone. I almost had at least 10 collisions with people who were not looking where they walked as they were immersed in what was on their phone while they walked to Starbucks or Chipotle.

I can only say that I am glad that I was able to experience NY for being the cultural center of the world and inspiring city that it was. It definitely changed the course of my thinking and life. Thanks for everything but I have to sadly bid you adieu.

2 Pac feat. Mary J Blige – All That I Got Is Mama(Video)

Wow! Was it really over 10 years ago that I made this remix? Where is the time going?? At this time rapmullet.com had djs shook and putting their best foot forward with their mixtapes or hiding and hoping not to be exposed. Websites dedicated to mixtapes, or rather mix cds, were pulling in heavy traffic and making somewhat household names of business minded djs hustling their products. Mixtapes could be found anywhere from websites, record stores, gas stations, clothing stores, sidewalk stands and more. Mixtapes even had their own segment on MTV. This was a special time in the mixtape industry. Here is a remix I did that was featured on The 4 Horsemen Pt 3. I’ve been planning to do some video mixes to some of my classic remixes and here is one I put together the other day. Enjoy.
