DJ Paul Nice & DJ Muro recently linked up for the “Golden Era of Break Beats” sessions out on Kudo’s Records…
Here is some under the radar material for you to rock out with troopers.
Back in 93 I-POWER (DJ Mo Funk & P.S. The Supervisor) dropped a 12 inch that had a few head nodders on it (On “Play The Back” they flip the same sample source as Premier did on “Whirlwind Through Cities”, years earlier) …You will be hard pressed to find any info regarding this release on the net, so do the right thing and check in with a quickness.
I-Power – Play Da Back ’93
I-Power – Break Da Rulez
I-Power – Alternative
I-Power – Props, Loot, And Credit (Remix)
I-Power – Fast Cash
I-Power – Today’s Signs
If you haven’t heard the LORD FINESSE “SP1200″ project yet, I highly suggest you do so if your in the mood for 25 tracks laced with soul power, 90’s goodness, echoing horn stabs, punchy kicks and snares, etc….
I thoroughly enjoyed the majority of what I heard, but if I had to have a top pick I would have to go with “Electric Impression”…Fresh is the word!!
Blessed Bornday to my sun / son JAHMEL ROCKWELL AKA “Mr.Gotta Get Mines”, “B-Boy Disciple”,”Mr. Living The Dream”, “Mr. I’m Not Trying To Hear That”, “Mr. Check In”, and the new one, “Mr. Activities”……
Some dudes throw in the towel with Hip Hop when they have children, but you are a inspiration for me to keep going forward with my lifelong dedication to this art form…..
Just like I promised last week here is a GERMAN REGIME exclusive with yours truly on production…EXES & DEESOULOPEZ let loose with crime narrative bars that paint a picture of revenge, murder, betrayal, and all types of shit that will keep you glued to the track (And NO, I did not do the scratches, and YES this is the only production I have on their new album)…
Their latest project “DOUBLE HEADED DRAGON” is out now…. Peace to LL’s, BLAME-LO, AYAK, and the entire ALL POLO EVERYTHING SET….
This episode of the HALFTIME SHOW is a legendary one without a fraction of a doubt…
DJ ECLIPSE brings along KEV-E KEV, AK-B, CASANOVA RUD, RED ALERT, graff pioneer JAMES TOP, and the hardcore overlord JUST-ICE…Over two hours of late 80’s selections, blends, doubles, and true Hip Hop morale on deck..
Green Llama crew member “FLUENT” is criminally slept on in my opinion…From “Uncut Raw” with Selfish, to numerous other projects he has released throughout the years – he has managed to keep his beats ugly and unpredictable…

I prefer CRATE RAIDERZ over Fuse TV’s digging segment because they keep it natural, down to earth, and straight up dusty…No fancy camera angles and all that, just a bare bones wax appreciation steez ….
On the latest episode they hit up Philly Record store owner Max Ochester for a round of jewelry…
Canada has a long history of putting out quality joints…Off the top of the dome I can drop a few names that made a impression on me over the years – MAESTRO FRESH WES, DREAM WARRIORS, BLACK EYE, MATHEMATIK, INCREDIBLE EASE (RIP), CHOCLAIR, SAUKRATES, CHECKMATE, and the heavily slept on outfit REDLIFE….
If you have never heard REDLIFE’s “Who’s Talking Weight”, your about to be in for a heavy surprise duke !!!
This upcoming weekend I will finally get the opportunity to catch one of my all time favorite rhyme slayers..Mr.SPRAGGA BENZ will be hitting California for a few spot dates to end off the Summer correctly…
Out of all the material he has dropped over the years, the “Good Day” KRS-One remix still ranks high on the list of tunes that make me want to hurt something…
