GO KYPSKI!

October 1, 2008

NIKE

That’s the detail of the tongue label on C-Mon & Kypski’s limited edition SB Dunks…Here’s the details on Kypski’s new mix.

Our Dutch turntablist friend Kypski is the man, and he’s got this new mix that’s full of the joints we play in the office from MGMT, Digitalism, Boreta, Booka Shade & more. The cuts are crazy and remind us of when hip hop mixtapes had real DJ’s who could scratch. For good measure, we’ve added this youtube clip so you can see this guy in action. I don’t think he made this mix sitting at the drumset but who knows.

Can’t wait to have these guys back in the city and if you don’t know about their band, look them up under BAND WATCH and you’ll find out we’ve been friends with them for a bit.

This DOWNLOAD LINK is going to expire so hurry up and get the mix!

GASLAMP KILLER MAKES IT GOOD

September 23, 2008

Hey, Willow, what’s the problem?

You know we post all your joints, we run around the East Village together and stick your stickers on faces of babies in phone booth advertisements, we even keep your Obey mix on display.

You couldn’t have told us you had a new mix?
Man…
Well, now we’re not going to explain it, our readers are just going to have to check it out for themselves.
GASLAMP KILLER – WE MAKE IT GOOD MIX #5

Sorry readers, our friend is a jerk, we would have gotten you this sooner if we knew.

MORSE CODE’S JAZZ LOBBY PLAYLIST

September 17, 2008

Nat “DJ Morse Code” Morse, straight out of Los Angeles, is always a guest of the house, a DJ for the DJs and an all around swell kinda guy. As part of DJ AM’s artist group Deckstar, which houses such international DJ’s as Jazzy Jeff, Steve Aoki, Stretch Armstrong & The Alchemist, Morse Code has been rocking some major nights around the country.

Beyond the club nights, Nat has been a record collector and producer, who’s garnered some attention for his Fusion Batches series, a mix of rare funk and jazz records. The first one was “one of the best mixes I’ve heard, ever” according to Jazzy Jeff. The second Fusion Batches should be available early October, but we’ll tide you over with a few rare choice cuts of the month. And if you’re asking why it’s only 5 joints, well, these records are expensive and he spent time finding them. Cool? Cool.

GLK VS. HELIOCENTRICS FOR STONES THROW PODCAST #37

August 18, 2008

T

Shout out to the homey Havana Joe from Stones Throw who was in town last week.
He was telling us at a meeting over at East Village Radio that the one and only Gaslamp Killer is responsible for their latest podcast which we found posted over at RE:UP Magazine.

As you may know, Willow aka. the Gaslamp Killer is the, shall we say, rather eccentric, producer, DJ & turntablist out of Los Angeles who is best known for his psychedelic, neck snapping, dubbed out, hip hop production and experimentation. For this episode, he teams up with the Heliocentrics, another one of the left field, throwback, breakbeat experimental groups on the Stones Throw sub-label Now Again Records.

The Stones Throw podcast is one of the best available series of free music downloads on the planet. You have to subscribe. FOR REAL.

READY TO DIE: RESURRECTED

August 4, 2008

BIGGIE

Kick off this week with a blast from the past.

Here’s a treat that came to us via. Peter Rosenburg‘s Facebook post over the weekend, Biggie’s classic Ready to Die, mixed by DJ Semi, with added material including the original ‘Friend of Mine’ demo recording, Pete Rock’s notorious Juicy remix, unreleased tracks (but why the Pepsi joint?!?!) and original album cuts.

Not entirely groundbreaking but a great excuse to bring back a classic for the next few days.
Grab it here and let us know how Rock the Bells was wicha hip hop self.
