It started as a newsletter
and now it is a radio show: presenting THE BOXXX REPORT RADIO
, every second Tuesday of the month on the great London-based internet radio station NTS
from 11 AM to 1 PM EST. Playing mostly new-ish music from friends and Thunder Zone
affiliates plus just great punk, rap, USA freakout music and whatever else I feel like. Influenced by both John Peel and Funkmaster Flex. High energy. The Boxxx Report Radio: check it out
The first episode aired a few weeks ago and you can listen to it right here. It introduced some “recurring features” from members of the extended Thunder Zone crew including the DJ George Costanza Song Of The Month and the Dogs In Ecstasy 1-Minute Mix. It also featured an exclusive 20-min mix from the one and only SCHWARZ.
So check it out, and great ready for October and beyond. This world is truly twisted but you gotta keep running.
Tonight in Los Angeles. I’ve been gone for three years but now I’m back, for less than a week, working on my new record “Freaked Out American Loser.”
But that is almost besides the point of this blog post because tonight I’m doing a “B2B” tag team DJ set with my old friend and Thunder Zone collaborator… The one and only SCHWARZ
, at his party CLUB ILLUSION
. Expect the unexpected. Also djing is Kreayshawn
and P. Morris
. Talk about a nice bill! More info here
. Keep on fighting to change your life.
Tonight in New York City
. By my calculation the 10th ever THUNDER ZONE KICKBACK
. We just keep kickin’ back! We can’t stop kicking back. This month it’s a bit of an RIP Letterman
edition, maybe we’ll put on the show if we can figure out how to do that. Regardless, there will be some classic Letterman footage “In The Mix” on the legendary Happy Fun Hideaway TV screens all night along with classic zone-related content.
Plus we got THUNDER ZONE legend SCHWARZ showing up late night style and throwing down a very special, very rare CHOPPED AND SCREWED SET. Damn! Gonna be sick. Check out the facebook event below. Thunder Zone: the spazzed-out underdogs just hanging on to their sanity. Join us.
May 16th in New York City we are going all the way. Thunder Zone/Nina Pop legend SCWHARZ
(along with Mark Brown) throws a monthly party at a bar in Bed Stuy called ONE LAST SHAG
and guess what my dudes? This month it is the fucking THUNDER ZONE TAKEOVER
. What does that mean? Who knows. But here is a guess: energy drinks, “custom visuals,” and of course, freaked out DJ sets of American Music
from some of the game’s unsung heroes: JUICEBOXXX, DJ GEORGE COSTANZA, SHAMS, SCHWARZ AND MARK BROWN.
THUNDER ZONE is my pop culture/music/beverage/clothing/whatever I feel like label and I’m excited to partner with some true American ragers for a night of insanity. So come out, get in your car, “do a road trip,” whatever man. Just keep the dream alive. Keep fighting. Even when it is so dark that you don’t know what to do and everybody is laughing in your fucking face because you are goddamn 28-year-old loser, keep fighting.
That’s right, people! The OFFICIAL SCHWARZ SAMPLE PACK

STATE OF THE THUNDER ZONE
is back for this Fall 2K14 “one off” and damn it feels good to just yell into a smartphone again. Talking about life, talking about THE THUNDER ZONE
– you know the drill. This is it, there is no turning back man. New things this Fall include a Japanese-only LIL UGLY MANE
jacket and the SCHWARZ
sample pack for all of your club music/prank call needs. 2015 will see a new JUICEBOXXX
mixtape and “proper” full length plus all sorts of stuff.
And also! The “Big Reveal” — My friend Leon Neyfakh wrote a book about me, to be published next fall by Melville House. Someone wrote a book about Juiceboy? I’m still processing it too. More info soon. I wish I could stop, I really do. I would probably live a happier life but I am on a mission to just keep doing the sick shit no matter what. Somebody, anybody… Buy a THUNDER ZONE HACKY SACK. It is worth the money. Never Surrender.
Over the past few years, THUNDER ZONE
rager and American Motivational Speaker SCHWARZ
has been throwing down a steady stream of remixes and bootlegs in addition to his run of amazing original “Motivational Club” tunes released on Thunder Zone. TOP 40 BOOTLEGS
collects some of his finest remix work all in one place via the legendary LIVEMIXTAPES
website and of course it is slamming.
There is so much sick shit here! I can’t even begin to scratch the surface but let’s just say SCHWARZ is a master at navigating culture and just fucking doing it by his own rules. Many exciting modern club styles and tones are represented here, but everything is sucked into SCHWARZ‘s vision and the result is something that transcends the modern middling soundcloud sinkhole.
CHECK IT OUT and below check out the amazing promo SCHWARZ put together for the release that says more than I could ever hope to say.
Just in time for the hot summer comes a brand new fire flame SCHWARZ remix package
out on my label THUNDER ZONE
. I’m really excited about this one, it features a lot of the sickest in the game throwing down slamming remixes but perhaps most importantly it features the one and only LA CHAT
on the rap remix alongside Bmore rising star TT THE ARTIST
LA CHAT is a true legend of American music and her guest verses have graced some of the most iconic Memphis rap tracks of all time. To have her involved on a THUNDER ZONE release is amazing. Throw in fresh remixes from DJ GEORGE COSTANZA, 333 BOYZ, MIKE G and BYRELL THE GREAT and you got something to freak out to under the hot summer sun. Check it out below.
ALSO… SCHWARZ WILL BE ON TOUR THIS JULY WITH KILBOURNE. TOUR DATES ARE BELOW.
Out now on THUNDER ZONE
! The brand new single and video from Bmore American Music rager SCHWARZ
called “Open Up Yr Mind”. This is the third in a trilogy of positive club music anthems and quite possibly the toughest and most life-affirming work from SCHWARZ
to date. Schwarz is part motivational speaker, part hypeman and all positive inspirational energy. Check out the THUNDER ZONE
produced video above (shot by Brooks Kossover) and download on Bandcamp
Oh yeah, ENTER THE THUNDER ZONE.
This fall for the first time ever THE THUNDER ZONE
went on the road. Two weeks of music, video and energy drinks all across North America. Juiceboxxx, Extreme Animals and Schwarz. It was sick. Afterwards, I made 4 short documentaries about the tour and David Wightman from Extreme Animals wrote a tour diary. You can check all of that out right now over at SEX MAGAZINE
Really excited to share this and I couldn’t think of a better place than SEX MAGAZINE to do it. Stay positive and follow your dreams.
JUICEBOXXX/DJ GEORGE COSTANZA “BUSINESS AS USUAL” MAY TOUR DATES COMING SOON.
