It’s a happy day here for me, because it’s a pretty rare thing to hear Janis Joplin get mashed up! A few years ago, there were a couple featuring Mercedes Benz, but I believe this is the first time I’ve ever heard Move Over (one of my faves from her) used in a mashup. Some might say it’s blasphemy to marry a powerhouse legend like Janis with someone like Katy Perry, but I say this is the kind of moment when disparate genres come together with no shame. And, it’s Oki who gives Janis’ classic pipes a chance to shine like a pearl on the dance floor.

PS to my LA peeps: Please mark your club calendar for Friday, April 13th as I present “MEMOREX” at The Echoplex. It’s a Mixtape Retrospective to celebrate my 30th Anniversary as a club DJ, and I’ll be featuring actual DJ sets recorded in the past at my various club events since 1982. I’d love you to come join me, and dance!
