Music Director

1. B.O.B. ft Andre 3000 - Play The Guitar
This joint is soo fresh! This isn’t the kind of joint is expected from B.O.B. but I’m happy he made it happen and even happier he got Andre 3000 on the joint. Andre really took this track to the next level. The reggae influence and sick baseline makes this a certified club BANGER!

2. Jay-Z ft Blue Ivy Carter - Glory
This is creativity to 10000000 level! What better way could you think of to celebrate and commemorate the birth of your first child than to put it to song.. no interviews necessary media.. the way we feel is all right here in this song.. GLORY!

3. Flo Rida - Gotta Get Ya
Gotta show love to my home 305 team doing it BIG! Flo Rida has created an incredible lane for himself making fun party music the world can rock out to! He’s back staying true to what he does best with a another party rockin joint that everybody can get into!

1. David Guetta ft Sia - Titanium - Nicky Romero Remix
Sia's voice is just MASSIVE on the build & is the version you've been hearing in clubs across the country. Don't sleep on this banger.

2. Maino ft T.I. & Meek Millz – I'm About Cream Pt
Straight hustler's anthem right here & gets mad requests on radio shows & the REAL hip hop clubs. Stack that paypah.

3. Drake ft Nicki Minaj – Make Me Proud
Wasn't feeling it first but the hook just grew on me. It's also a dope track to switch up the vibe by going halftime from an uptempo set or vice versa.

1. French Montana ft Diddy & Rick Ross - Shot Caller Remix
I know it's been out for a minute.. maybe it's the sample, maybe it's Ross (cuz I know it's NOT Diddy) who adds somethin' to it.. who knows, point it, it's MY pick. Play it!

2. T. Mills - Vans On
Love the hook and feel of this record.. Plus, it sounds great on-air! Play it!

3. Tonite Only - Haters Gonna Hate
Maaaan, this was on my December DJcity Podcast and is STILL one of my favorite songs right now. Pink Floyd's "The Wall" kids meet 2012! PLAY IT!

1. 2 Chainz ft T.I. - Spend It Remix
Dirty South anthem of the moment. Way too tough. SIIIMILLAC!

2. Arty - To Get Better - Avicii Slappin' Mix
One of my favorite old house jams flipped in typical Avicii glowstick fashion. Drink plenty of water.

3. Tyga ft Lil Wayne - Faded
Tyga has found his niche and it's making gutter rap for vampire strip clubs. I'm with him 100%. Weezy's also somewhere on this track spitting his codeine raps again.

1. DJ Fresh ft Rita Ora - Hot Right Now
I wasn't too sure on what angle DJ Fresh would hit up coming off the back of No.1 UK smash 'Louder', but he did it again. Another perfectly balanced commercial crossover which will appeal to the masses. Check the Zed Bias and Zomboy remixes.

2. Kano ft Vybz Kartel - Jenga
Kano has, and always will be one, of the finest UK rapper/MCs. Just recently dropped the Jack Bauer 2.4 mixtape for free online if you want to go check it. His latest track has serious bounce!

3. Kaleem Taylor - Blow Out
A name to watch in 2012 if you're into your R&B. Just before xmas he dropped his Smooth EP and I'm fully backing him as one to watch this year! I sense a smash!

1. T-Pain ft Chris Brown - Look At Her Go
Track that blows up from the beginning. It is in rotation lately when playing T-Pain related-segment. kkkkkkkkkrazy!!!!!!!

2. Roscoe Dash - Good Good Night
No. 1 SOUTH song anthem last weekend in the club in Nagoya, JPN.

3. Nicki Minaj - Roman In Moscow
I'm trying to play it a lot at the regular party because I wanna rock the crowd and break this track. mmmmmmmmmad!!!!!
