White choco7ate x American Space Dushanbe: Evolution of Djing Virtual Workshop
Creativity is about making change, at least that’s what it means to Rob and I. For that reason, as #whitechoco7ate, we purposely choose to only share our creativity on occasions where we feel doing so will have a deeper impact on our friends and followers. An impact that’s felt far beyond getting the “Like”. This is one of those occasions. On October 8th the US Embassy Dushanbe (Tajikistan), invited Dillly and I to participate in American Space Dushanbe’s Virtual American Arts series. Dilly and I taught a special workshop examining the evolution of the Hip Hop DJ.

Rock the Bells Radio: WHITE CHOCO7ATE Labor Day MIXDOWN
Dilly and DJ Rob Swift teamed up as WHITE CHOCO7ATE for LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells Radio for a 90 minute mix to celebrate Labor Day 2020 #labordaymixdown.

The first 45 minutes are Rob’s selections of the male perspective and the second 45 mins are my selections of the females that have shaped Hip Hop. By no means complete, but definitely comprehensive, we hope you enjoy this mix that rocked all weekend long on LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells Radio #labordaymixdown
Stay Home Stay stoned mix
This mix was featured on DJ City magazine. Stay Home Stay Stoned flew up to 12th in the global rock chart, 19th in the global funk chart and 68th in the global hip hop chart within the first 48 hours of release.
For many people around the world 420 is a time for community, and activism. This year, because of lockdown restrictions will decided to continue the tradition and do our activism from home. DJ Rob Swift and I decided that our way of contributing to our community would be to create a 4/20 inspired mix for you all. This way we can vibe together spiritually while being socially distanced.
Our motivation behind doing the mix also gave rise to the name “Stay Home, Stay Stoned” (because you are all staying home right?!) . We took this mix in a new and authentic direction, pulling from our backgrounds in hip hop, using original samples, some heavy funk and some left field suprises that I’m sure you’ll all enjoy. This isn’t just an ode to weed, this is an ode to being high. There is also a narrative throughout the mix so listen out!
LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS: VALENTINES DAY MIX
