“In celebration of Heyday Footwear’s launch of its Summer 2011 line, also including women’s sizes for the first time, Heyday Footwear is releasing a musical companion to the new line entitled, naturally, “The Heyday Mixtape”. At the direction of Heyday CEO Darin Hager, the project will be spearheaded by Heyday Brand Ambassadors Born I Music (aka Born Infinite, a Washington DC-based hip hop/electronica artist) and Jules Renae (Model and Director of PR & Marketing for Heyday Footwear and Head of Promotions for New England Hip Hop.com).
The primary goal of The Heyday Mixtape is to create a soundtrack that captures Heyday’s “street-meets-sleek” philosophy. Not only does Born I Music represent this philosophy, but all artists who wear and or represent Heyday (i.e. Twista, Elzhi, IAMEDIC, Jay Sean, Coolbeans, Flo Rida and Tony Yayo to name a few), are reflections of the company’s cross-genre ethic. The aim of The Heyday Mixtape is to highlight artists who, by their affiliation with Heyday, have proven that they are forward thinking and ahead of the curve both in their music and in their sense of style.
The mixtape will be a free download and for promotional use only, consisting of original material to be released via www.heydayfootwear.com, www.newenglandhiphop.com, www.bornimusic.com.
The Heyday Mixtape Drops 5/31 FEATURING: Born I, Mobb Deep, Coolbeans, Soul Khan, Shawnna, Twista, Ayah, HimmHott, KO The Legend, Mid-Summer Classic, Millyz, Youngstarr, EasyMoney, David Correy, Anjuli Stars, Asia Bryant, Waze, Suga SP, MacGuyver, Sketch, Young Riot, YV & Hollywood, Lights Over Paris, Game, IAMMEDIC & Edo G”
It was just six months ago that Born I Music rapped that he had “old Mobb Deep in his ipod shuffle” in his groundbreaking “All I Want is You” Freestyle. As fate would have it, 6 months later, the world has both Born and Mobb Deep together in the scorching new single, “Limelight”. Produced by DC’s J-Scrilla, ‘Limelight’s heavy drums and cinematic samples let Born, Havoc and Prodigy remain true to form, trading crazy heavy bars over Scrilla’s paranoid, hypnotic production. “Limelight” serves as the lead single for Heyday Footwear’s “Heyday Mixtape” (it was the Mixtape’s co-exec producer Jules Renae who brought Born & Mobb Deep together, clearly a wise choice!). The Heyday Mixtape drops May 31, available via TheHeydayMixtape.com. Get that!

BORN I MUSIC – THE HEYDAY MIXTAPE – SUMMER 2011
“It’s not hype, it’s Heyday”!
Well its been a few days since i got back from Miami and I had to let my brain gel back together first before I could write this post…
But this year’s WMC was really something else. For me, having only been involved in House for a few years through DJ AB Logic and Axiom of the Hoodfellas, I finally felt like I was part of the family this year. I played something like 15 gigs! Lol. “Epic” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Highlights for me were playing the Beach Plaza Hotel with Tommy Largo, AB Logic & J.C. Disko. We created a moment that I nor anyone who was there will ever forget and that was just the beginning. The Guesthouse parties were totally sick. Probably one of the most insane moments was watching Mes, Sneak, Farina and Doc Martin kill it at club Eve from 2am to 10am. The sun came up and the party kept going – immaculate. I played a smash set with Australia’s Jeremy Joshua that was the start of a great relationship. Several major highlights came from my downtempo and house sets with Tommy Largo. Notably at the Carlton Hotel for Sutra Sounds. This by far was one of my most memorable experiences. It was as if the stars aligned and the gods of House were shining on us. An amazing night. Making friends and music plans with awesome Aussies like Sonny Fodera was more than icing on the cake.
I rocked my all white Super Debs from Heyday Footwear, as well as my red Shift RS’s and my grey Shift Concepts – Heyday had Miami on SMASH! It was lovely to turn heads in the city where heads don’t turn much. My daytime-nighttime purple Carerras went with all my outfits, it was a good fashion week for the kid lol. OH and the “Guns & Doves” and “Kill Your Genre” tees are an absolute WIN. New gear coming soon!!
Finally, just as I thought it couldnt get any better, the UGH Hangover Party on sunday at D’vine Lounge thrown by AB Logic and my people, with special guests Jonn Hawley, Davidson Ospina and Oscar P to name a few was so ridiculously incredible that I get misty eyed everytime I think of it.
If there was one song to sum up last year’s WMC it was Jonn Hawley’s “Electric Lush”. This year for me it was DJ Spinna’s remix of Shaun Escoffery’s “Days Like This”. I met so many amazing people, labels and DJs, I will NEVER forget WMC 2011. Every day I said the same thing to myself, “I love days like this, yeah…”
I def got mad emo hangin with all you House music heads for a week. Hahaha Back to the gully…
