New York City-based DJ Sammy Needlz is a mixer on SiriusXM’s Shade 45 and The Joint channels. He also serves as DJcity’s dancehall contributor. Below are five must-have items that he always carries in his DJ bag.
Pioneer DJ DDJ-SP1 Controller
“I love the SP1 because it puts everything right in front of me. I put Chroma Caps on the FX knobs to color code the Filter, Delay, etc., so I don’t forget which slot they’re in. The SP1 is good for tone play too, with its big pads.”
GoPro HERO4 with Dive Housing
“You never know when things are going to get weird when you go diving in the Mediterranean Sea with a bottle of tequila and some new friends after a gig.”
Old Spice Pure Sport High Endurance Deodorant
“When you fly 16 hours from New York City to Hong Kong and then another four hours to Bangkok to eat Pork Larb and DJ at a club, you might end up smelling funky. I’ve been using Old Spice’s Pure Sport since seventh grade, and I’m amazed they still make it (I won’t tell you what year that was).”
Twelve South PlugBug World Power Adapter and Charger
“This is great when you’re traveling around Asia or Europe and regularly need different adapters. It snaps onto your MacBook charger and has an additional USB power out for your iPhone, etc. I have a lot of miles on mine and highly recommend it.”
Nature Made Vitamin B12 2500 MCG Tablets
“After drinking the bottle of tequila on your rider and waking up in an unfamiliar city, you’re going to need a serious jolt to deal with the flight to you next destination.”
To celebrate the release of the Rubble Kings documentary, SiriusXM’s Sammy Needlz has joined forces with Rok One, DJ Tahleim, and the film’s director Shan Nicholson on a mixtape inspired by the film.
The documentary is about New York City during the late ’60s and early ’70s when gangs ruled the streets. It chronicles the story of a few extraordinary people who brought peace to their gang-ridden streets and gave birth to hip-hop culture.
The 55-minute Rubble Kings mix features a diverse selection of music — from the “anthemic soul and funk of the Black struggle, to the salsa and Boogaloo of the Latin Barrios, to the gritty and abrasive psychedelic rock of White gangland.”
Many of the songs in the mix were originally intended to appear on the documentary’s soundtrack but were omitted for various legal and budgetary reasons. Now, for the first time ever, fans can hear the songs that were originally intended for the film.
Stream the mix below and download it on the Rubble Kings website.
