What, you thought we just made posters and sticker packs? Over the last few years, we've been putting together a number of musical releases. Here's your chance to scoop up a whole big ol' stash of some of our finest releases, all of which feature design (and, in some cases, screenprinting) by us here at Burlesque! Here's what we have for you...
1) DO IT TO IT EP
ft. Dave Nada, Smalltown DJs, Bird Peterson, Mike 2600, and Cosmo Baker
2) DO IT TO IT Vol 2 EP
ft. Bird Peterson, Dave Nada, Tittsworth, Emynd, Mike 2600, Wizard of Gaz
When one of our resident disc jockeys took part in the Red Bull Thre3style DJ competition in January 2013, we screenprinted a small stack of t-shirts with his logo across the front and got them onto the backs of Mike's boosters in the crowd. After our guy took first place, we had a lot of people asking us where and when they could get a copy for themselves, so here's a fresh batch printed up just for you!

In the grand tradition of "Do It To It," "Do It To It Vol 2," and "Do It To It Vol 3," we are proud to present (yep, you guessed it) "Do It To It Vol 4!" This time around, Mike 2600 and Bird Peterson set out to squash the age old debate: Which is better? Food or Love? Listen as each DJ spins two 15 minute mixes of tunes dedicated to their favorite subjects (Mike took on food, Bird love). It's 60 minutes of fun, packaged in a screenprinted sleeve and served up with a mini wallpaper testprint square!
After two hit-packed vinyl Do it To it releases, we followed up with another high quality compilation of remixes and original tracks from some of our favorite DJs and producers! The CD packaging is screenprinted on clear vinyl sticker paper and can be cut up to provide you with over a dozen fluorescent stickers to put on your laptop, notebook, refrigerator, car, or anywhere else!
1. Smalltown DJs "Autograph"
2. Jimmy 2 Times "Errbody Drunk"
3. Nick Catchdubs "Beep Me 911"
4. Bird Peterson "My Wackadoo Trip to the Oral Surgeon"
Volume 2 of our vinyl remix EP series hits even harder with 6 face-melting Baltimore club-inspired tracks from some of our favorite producers. Created in conjunction with our party of the same name during SXSW 2009. Artwork designed by Mike Davis and screenprinted right here in our studio!
Bird Peterson "Torture Motherf*cker"
Dave Nada "JB Baby"
Emynd "Hold it Down 2009"
Wizard of Gaz "Preacher Man"
Tittsworth "I'm Rich"
To help celebrate the release of their 2008 self titled album, Twin Cities-based live hip hop group Heiruspecs enlisted the help of Burlesque's Mike Davis to design this commemorative poster. It's a whole cityscape full of speakers, rap signage, lights, and a funky monorail, all fading out into a wooded wonderland.

We had such a great time at our Do it To it parties at SXSW, we had to bring the fun home to Minneapolis! Our good friends Dave Nada, Bird Peterson, and Star Eyes rolled in from out of town and rocked it with some of our favorite local DJs as hundreds of party people filled the First Avenue main room and Record Room dancefloors.

We've been wanting to release a vinyl record for years and finally did it! Here are five (5) red-hot dancefloor-ready remixes from some of our talented club music producers and DJs to coincide with our party of the same name going down around SXSW in Austin TX each year. These records feature slick packaging designed by Mike Davis which was screenprinted right in our shop and then die-cut and hand-assembled! Vinyl orders now come with FREE DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of all five songs.
Minneapolis DJs King Otto and Burlesque's own Mike the 2600 King have whooped up an hour-long mix of the greatest oldies smash classics, all cut up and mixed into a non-stop dance party detonator! You'll hear your favorite Motown anthems, sock hop classics, girl group hits, and British Invasion barnstormers. Buy one for yourself and one for your parents. Trust us, they'll LOVE it!
Recorded and co-produced by Andrew Broder from Fog. Design by Mike featuring photos by Skye Rossi.
