This mixtape Mondays we revisit a set from a while back from Mayer Hawthorne aka Dj Haircut at L.A’s much hyped Do over party. Let’s hope their weren’t too many chumps tweeting or texting emoticons while he was rolling through these tunes. Plenty of disco,funk, boogie, 80’s golden era rap classics and inappropriate OH SNAP drops to enjoy this monday.
Originally known as DJ Haircut, Mayer Hawthorne was a little side project that he was working on in his spare time. He never took himself as a serious singer, until one day he showed it to Peanut Butter Wolf and the rest is history.
As amazing as his show was the first time I saw him. I did think Mayer Hawthorne was the sort of artist, whose strength was more in the studio than as a super awesome live singer. How things have changed.
Mayer Hawthorne’s voice has really developed, as has his live show. So good.
