Got hit up the other day to take part in an interview about the resurgence of the popularity in tapes. Anyone who knows me knows i’m a full fledged nerd when it comes to collecting, all the way down to the cassingles that I still cop every time I hit the flea. While going through a bunch of my old boxes, I came across a few mixtape covers from back in the day (12 to 15 years ago to be exact).
Click on the images for high rez — these things are pretty freakin’ hilarious…
Do you know the importance of a sky…page…uh!
Starting a new series on this here little blog, all about showcasing my favorite samples of all time and how they were best flipped in some classic Hip-Hop joints. Gonna set it off like this…
George Benson – Face It Boy, It’s Over
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – In the Flesh (Instrumental)
Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – I Get Physical (Instrumental)
Brand Nubian – Step Into Da Cipher
DJ Jazzy Jeff – For da Love Of Da Game (Instrumental)
Edo.G – Love Comes And Goes
It’s a FREE DOWNLOAD from his new EP ‘Feast Or Famine’ and if you know of his talent and track record so far you’ll understand that he and SWTBRDS are consistently releasing some of the best current rap music that is out there!
Support that real shit!
One of my favorite jams of all time, a weird and funk heavy up tempo b-boy jam that stands the test of time in a big way! I extended every worthy section and didn’t cut anything out, leaving 10 minutes worth of dance floor ready heat — a low end boost and small master and you’re good to go. Enjoy!
I remember watching Style Wars many years ago and being thoroughly convinced that it was the greatest movie of all time. Kase 2 was one of the slickest and coolest dudes in that doc and that moment when you realized homie only had one arm made you appreciate how insanely talented he was that much more.
It’s hard to not talk about Kase 2 without remembering that infamous line that everyone and their momma has used throughout the years on mixtapes, albums, t-shirts, etc…
His influence was and is felt the world over with his invention of what is known as the “camouflage style” (something that is dearly missed in all elements of Hip-Hop). Taking notes from legends like Kase 2 was always something I did with my DJing — hiding those subtleties in your creation where only the true connoisseurs could catch it.
So I decided to finally surface an idea i’ve had for a while, an event entitled “SINGLES ONLY”. This will be a pop-up party (a la a pop up restaurant/store front), meaning there will be no definitive dates or venues, rather a traveling pajama jammy jam of sorts. The premise is we play nothing but vinyl singles, so 12″ and 7″ and the occasional 10″ if we so please.
The first one is tomorrow at Som Bar in SF — come check it out…
