We'd like to talk to you about your rockism.

We're staging an intervention:

Look, Philly has Hollertronix. NYC has . . . well, NYC has everything. And when it comes to cross-platform party music, Boston is like that dude James Murphy wrote "Beat Connection" about. Except on nights like this. Regular readers of OTD are already pretty familiar with the relentless Certified crew, and if you're on the Internet, you've probably heard of Nick Catchdubs. But let's get this straight: all these dudes are DJs first, everything else second. And if you haven't seen them rock a party yet, you're verging on jackassery. No excuses.

Seriously: OTD knows there are people on some rockist message boards around here who sweat Maya. And we're here to tell you: dudes, there is life after Arular. There's a big wide world out there where people know what Lightning Bolts and Paul Walls are (people who like screen printing and also buy reggaeton doubles; why is this a difficult concept?). We want to drag you out of the closet (n.h.). We want to get together and not make a big deal about throwing our big digits in the air. It will be fun.

The new Certified Bananas mix is dope. Nick Catchdubs has two mixtapes out and they both make us retarded rock geeks try to dance with girls we have no business trying to dance with. Links below to CB RADIO and to snippets from the new Catchdubs joint Oh, Snap, which you should buy immediately.

LISTEN: Certified Bananas, August Mix (mp3)
LISTEN: Nick Catchdubs, Oh, Snap! tracks one (Jay-Z vs. Muse vs. MIA) and two (Ying Yang vs. Smiths).

Oh, shit, we almost forgot: This isn't like official or anything, but let's just say this is also kind of a going-away party for Young Lemon, who's pulling a Kermit the Frog/Axl Rose/Tina Turner and moving from the 'burbs to the Dirty Apple. Straight out his momma's house into the belly of the beast. Note to Chuck Eddy from Jim Crow and Stuart Scott: Holla at a playa if you see 'em on the street.
