Sartorially Sound II The Licorice Disco Experience By DJ Destroyer

Some of our followers have yet to enjoy this Spring 2013 Edition of SSII! Sacrilege. Thus, we must ensure this showcase which Mr. Aaron Paar had curated for us earlier this year does not fall on deaf earbuds.  Do enjoy and share, as we will be gathering again soon to enjoy these essential sounds at Licorice Discotheque.

Hush Money & Co. Presents: Don Guapo Jacobs “The Way I Like” Essential House Mix

HM&Co Autumn Winter 2012

Hush Money & Co. Proudly presents:

Don Guapo Jacobs’ “The Way I Like”,

An hour long essential house mix which travels through the quintessential soundscape of those late night, all out, sweat box parties of yesteryear that we so crave. It’s all about the boogie and togetherness we each shared on nights like these, Deep and dirty, not much more mattered.
You can find Don rocking parties in Los Angeles , SF, Oakland, Etcetera, keeping the integrity of the mix foremost in heart and mind.. just the way he likes…

Thanks to the pioneers that paved the way and built this house.

The Oxford Files: A Hush Money Sartorial Tutorial.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“Please allow me to wear you out!”

We humbly introduce to you Hu$h Money’s The Oxford Files” Sartorial segment of our little blog that will.  Where we selfishly pry and preach about what we feel is undeniably essential to your outer layer.  We chose “Oxford” because it represents some of our favorite and most timeless shoes, shirts and fabrics inspired by that old English University which spawned many of  yesterday’s biggest, brightest and even the world’s worst elite, as well as inspired ours and past generations basics and best to wear for any occasion.  We believe that although old traditions must be augmented and or Re:Invented, a classic piece is only considered a true classic when you can’t do without. speaking in fashion terms of course, nothing do or die, as that would be silly.  So please consider this segment’s offering a not so serious, yet absolute conviction of ours that  you can borrow from before you dare enter one of our secret parties.  We may take notice and or hand you one..

Hush Money & Co. Would like to thank all of our favorite bloggers for these dandy images..

Our resident band of misfits,

The Umoja Quintet

Also, Jazz inspired, Disco infused, Now, you’re Funked , Soul sets by DJ’s

Don Jacobs x Rudy V.
