Just Blaze talks new projects, Tom Tom Club on NPR, Bowie Ball in Village Voice and Metromix, Click + Drag in TimeOut

Santos resident DJ Just Blaze gave a heavily syndicated interview to Mikey Fresh (read it in Vibe) in which he discussed producing the Eminem and Lil' Wayne collaboration, seeking advice from Wu-Tang's RZA, and some interesting new projects, including a TV show and producing for the Def Jam Rap Star video game.
"There’s something else video game and music related that I might be working on. It’s so early, though—we’ve only been two conversations about it. But it will probably have a lot of haters upset, again,” Just tells VIBE with a chuckle, from behind his new console. “I’m also working on a TV show. It’s not just a pitch thing—we’re almost done shooting. I took the downtime I had from making music to do something different, jump on the small screen a little bit."
The Tom Tom Club, who will be playing here on Thursday (10/14 - buy tickets) with Caravan of Thieves and (The) Tony Castles, has just been featured on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series. Check the footage below:

This past weekend, Santos hosted two liberating, freewheeling and elaborate parties that embody the rebellious spirit that makes New York City the hub of nightlife culture. Thanks to a few intrepid photojournalists, Click + Drag 3.2 and Bowie Ball 2010 are immortalized by the following stills.
