Various ‎– Rhythm Stick 1-8 (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th October 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

Trick or treat goblins and ghouls. This is a special Rhythm Stick brew just for you. A special Halloween issue.

Rhythm Stick was a DJ-only subscription/remix service based in Cazadero, CA (USA) that operated during 1989 -1992 ~ releases were pressed in limited quantities and featured mixes of Mainstream dance / Top 40 / NRG / dance classic tracks released on double vinyl and their CD’s contained the ‘best of’ tracks from those vinyl releases.

Rhythm Stick (With The Adventures of Mikie Man) staff consisted of the following people: Gini Spiersch, Director; Steve Bourasa, Producer & Mixer; and mixing djs: Glenn Cattanach, Mario S. David, Jim “Hip-Hop” Hopkins, Mark Watkins, and would also feature guest DJ’s.

The subtitle, (With The Adventures of Mikie Man) was connected to their logo and continuing cartoon series. These cartoon characters were originally drawn by Gini each night that Michael Lewis dee-jayed. Over a two year period, three books of drawings were completed and now with Rhythm Stick as their medium, the “Adventures of Mikie Man” were presented by the artist, Jameo. Each jacket would present the character cartoons representing the staff and contributors to Rhythm Stick.

All productions of Rhythm Stick were dedicated to the late Michael J. Lewis, the original “Mikie Man”.

Merry Christmas

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th December 2010

Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25–Christmas Day–has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870.

May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill,
And may the year ahead be full of contentment and joy. Thank you for all of your support for Burning The Ground. I will be back to regular blogging on Monday, December 26, 2010.

Have a Merry Christmas
