I had a good conversation with my longtime friend Warren Peace, while hanging at XS last week. We spoke about “the progressive format”. This is something he and I, and a few other like-minded individuals have been championing for a long time, through our respective individual styles, which is an evolution of what was once called “the open format”. We agreed that the open format has run it’s course, as the days of meshing Top 40 and hip-hop is looked at as cheesy, as new genres such as trap and moombahton, are being integrated into sets all over the world. 
Artists like Diplo and A-Trak understand this, and have successfully integrated this mixture of styles that demands the attention of everyone in the room, as both hip-hop heads and house heads can relate. It’s a style that doesn’t rely on the latest Taio Cruz or Pitbull record. 

This is what I have tried to accomplish with my Hellafine Fridays mix series over the last year, and with my eleventh official episode, I feel that this is the strongest volume yet. Big room, electro, drum & bass, tech, garage, disco house, hip-hop, trap, dub step, and top 40; this one has it all. New music from Disclosure, Rudimental, Gary Caos, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Pusha T, Crookers, Robin Thicke, T.I., Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Richard Vission, Luciana, Style Of Eye, Tommy Trash, Dyro, Nom De Strip, David Guetta, Tom Staar, Major Lazer, Chocolate Puma, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Oh Snap, Young Jeezy, Enferno, Angger Dimas, Duck Sauce, Carli, and more.  - DJ Pizzo

Notes

After remixing Outkast’s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” into a big room, electro anthem earlier this year ("Spottie"), Manik and I decided next we would take on The Beastie Boys’ “Root Down” for our next Hellafine remix. This is one of those tracks that always worked at b-boy parties, but we wanted to be able to play it in a bigger room setting. Hence, this remix.
We started on this idea long before MCA’s passing and in no way want this to be seen as “cashing in” on it. We took a lyric from the original “Root Down” acapella to end the song, which now takes on new meaning: “Enough of that, just want to pay some respect. MCA…..”
Available now on Beatport, iTunes, and wherever digital music is sold.
