DJ’s Godfather, Mighty Mi, Slugworth, Serafin, RED, and Tempz3t all lend their talents on remixes
The Hip-Hop artist who got DJs and club goers buzzing with the infectious single “Only For Tonight,” Al Ca$ino, along with featured top-selling artists Too $hort, and Clyde Carson, are unleashing the debut music video directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Damon Jamal. The team is also unveiling four energized remixes produced by DJ Godfather, Dj Mighty Mi and Slugworth, DJ Serafin and RED, and Temp3zt, set to premiere April 8th, 2014.
The three remixes come from some of the hottest DJs across the country. Detroit based DJ Godfather is considered one of the founding fathers of the genre Ghetto Tech and holds several honors for his work, including DJ Times 15th best DJ in America, Pioneer Pro DJ in 2011 and 2012, and “Best DJ in Detroit” by Real Detroit Magazine four years running (2008-2013). His music can be heard in popular games NBA 2k6 and NBA 2K7 on 2k Sports, and he also boasts sponsorships from Native Instruments and Serato.
Temp3zt, aka Coley Cole, of Southern California has produced original music for artist Slimmie Hendrix, aka Pittsburgh Slim, and generated direct interest from artists like LMFAO for remixes he’s produced. Temp3zt has shared the stage with many notable artists including DJ AM, Static Revenger, LMFAO, Slick Rick, Hyper Crush, Ying Yang Twins, KRS-One, Finatticz, and Danzig.
DJ and music director Mighti Mi holds his own in the busy city of Las Vegas. Currently he is the resident DJ at the Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club in the Wynn Hotel and Casino. He has been working frequently alongside the up and coming DJ Slugworth.
DJ Serafin is a self-taught producer from Los Angeles, CA who’s remixed tracks for top artists Livvi Frank, Jordan Sparks, and Britney Spears. On the “Only For Tonight” remix, he teams up with DJ RED from Florida, who’s resume includes a performance at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Miami, a finalist spot at Smirnoff’s Master of the Mix competition, and a winning spot at South Carolina’s Hot Mixx 6 Times competition.
“Only For Tonight” came out with a bang in early February, catching like fire on the ears of club goers and DJs alike, establishing Al Ca$ino’s reputation and reinforcing the pristine reputations of featured artists Clyde Carson and Too $hort. In alliance with producer Jared Gosselin (Macy Gray, India Arie, Run DMC), these talents prove they are a powerful force in the mainstream Hip-Hop scene.
Al Ca$ino Teams Up with Too $hort, Clyde Carson, On “Only For Tonight”
Single Available Everywhere Feb. 4 on JLG Entertainment
February 18th, 2013, Los Angeles, CA – After taking Oakland by storm via highly original and eclectic underground mix-tapes, Al Ca$ino continues The Bay’s long tradition of breaking the “next big thing.” Only this time around, Ca$ino shoots for universal appeal, hitting the target dead-on with his first new single, “Only For Tonight,” featuring Oakland powerhouses Too $hort and Clyde Carson.
One of The Bay’s first immense successes, Too $hort, went from selling tapes out of his car during the 80’s to being known as one of the pioneer rappers of West Coast Hip Hop. That title was solidified with a slew of gold and platinum releases, including hit tracks “The Ghetto” and “Blow The Whistle,” and collaborations with Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., and Scarface.
Oakland’s Clyde Carson is an integral member of Hip Hop hHphy group “The Team.” The group is best known for their local hits “It’s Gettin’ Hot” (2004) and “Hyphy Juice (The Remix)” (2006). The Team re-gained popularity in late 2005 after dropping the singles “Just Go” and “Bottles Up” to promote their new album, “World Premiere,” which peaked at number 95 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, and number 50 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums.
“Working on this record was the most fun I’ve had in the studio in years. Jared Lee Gosselin is to me what Noah ’40′ Shebib is to Drake and I look forward to creating some more slaps for the people to enjoy. “Only For Tonight” is just the beginning”, says Ca$ino.
In addition to Al Ca$ino’s infectious sound and solid musical collaborations, “Only For Tonight” gains another layer of mainstream sheen from super-producer/engineer/mixer Jared Lee Gosselin, whose bevy of impressive credits includes Macy Gray’s “The Sellout,” India Arie’s “Testimony: Vol. 2, Love and Politics,” and DMC’s “Rock Solid.” Gosselin recently took home a Latin Grammy Award in the Best Pop/Rock album category for Beto Cuevas’ “Transformación,” featuring Flo Rida, Leiré Martinez, and Debora del Corral.
When asked about working with upcoming talent like Al Ca$ino and his goals in general, Gosselin replies:
“When Al and Myself created this record we wanted to give the Bay Area and the West Coast in general a Blazing Record for the Clubs and the DJ’s, an Anthem for the people”
