” Paul C Revisited “

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 10.21.16 AM

MANDATORY VIEWING…PERIOD…

“Some few years ago I made a film about the legendary Queens Producer and Engineer Paul C McKasty. Although his life was cut short his hands and ears worked on some of the most revered hip hop albums of all time.

He also mentored many including Organized Konfusion and most notably Large Professor. When I made the original film I put it out via my site to get the attention of some people who originally where very difficult to get hold of. Partly to schedule and also that Paul passing has left deep wholes in many peoples lives. I’m an outsider making a film about someone that passed on long before his time.After seeing my film and how I told the story many came forward to contribute. In 2015 I met up with Large Professor in the UK and filmed a piece towards the project. DJ Cool V shot a piece him self and sent it to me, as did Phase from the group Phase and Rhythm not forgetting K Cut from Main Source who I able to shoot whilst on the Main Source Tour.

I had always intended to revise the film but as I was working on my new film my computer had no space to complete the film. I since purchased another mac to handle other projects, since I never went back to NYC this year I took the time off to work on my projects and deliver a film about a man who the world can benefit from knowing about his contribution to this wonderful world of music.

I would also like to thank Reno from the Paul C Movie project that offered to clean up the audio for me and also allowing me to use some of the pics from there Instagram Page.Note this is a very low budget production that came about as I had accumulated so much footage over the years whilst working on my projects that I took to putting a film together.

Here is the revised version of the film, Memories of Paul C McKasty..Revisited. i would like to thank all those that supported the film Jim Slice for allowing me to use the footage from his film Skull Snaps. Marc Davis, Lindley Farley and Casanova Rud CJ Moore and Large Professor for their constant support”.

“Very RARE ‘cult’ Library album by maestro William Antonini and his orchestra recorded with the deep sounds of Dirmaphon studios in Rome. Very small Library and Orchestra production from the pianist Antonini during his career as session man, this is the unique long-playing we have and for sure a lost collectible gem. Excellent studio orchestra arranged by the maestro. Expect some strong Blues Rock influences with loads of Killer Psychedelic sounds all over the place / amazing Jazz-Funk and Blues Funk vibes / heavy Progressive riffs with Big Band Swinging Jazz and Jazz-Rock tunes / huge bassline with stoned flute and deep Tenor sax / amazing early ’70s Freakbeat clubbing tunes”.

” Boom Shots “

If your into musical archeology like MR. HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD, this documentary from 1981 (SOUND BUSINESS) that details the trials and tribulations of running a London based sound system will definitely perk your ears up…It’s crazy to think that in 2018 we still face many of the same obstacles that they did back then…

This is kinda ill- don’t sleep…

” The Cipher : Percee P “

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.40.03 PM

It’s seems just like yesterday when I heard PERCEE P literally tear the mic to shreds on the “Yes You May” joint from LORD FINESSE’s seminal second album (Return Of The Funky Man)….That single verse instantly put him on my radar as the next dude to check for because his multi syllable approach was slightly different from G.Rap, but it was just as potent and dangerous….

The Bronx rhyme slayer recently joined Shawn Setaro on the very informative and thorough CIPHER PODCAST….Do yourself a favor and check in for a round of heavy jewelry dropping!!!!

“Percee P is a rapper whose reputation and influence far outpaces his relatively small recorded output. The Bronx-born artist grew up right alongside hip-hop – he started rapping as a young kid right as the first rap records were coming out, and was in the mix as hip-hop was being created in his neighborhood. Whether it was watching DJ’s at park jams, being around noted graffiti writers, or watching up-and-coming groups rehearse their routines, Percee was right there.

His first record was 1988’s “Let the Homocides Begin,” which was featured on an EP put out by Gotham City Records. That track, along with others like “Now They Wanna See Me” and some guest verses on tracks by Lord Finesse, Kool Keith, and others built up Percee’s reputation as a pioneer of fast-rapping virtuosity.

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 1.49.32 PM

In later years, Percee took to selling music – both his own and from his voluminous collection of early hip-hop tapes -all around New York City, particularly in front of the influential Fat Beats record store. Contacts he made there ended up getting him signed to Stones Throw, and he released his long-awaited debut album Perseverance in 2005, along with an album of remixes. At around that same time, video was unearthed of a 1989 battle between Percee and Lord Finesse, giving new shine to his early career.

And make sure to stay tuned after the Percee interview for a very special bonus. If you miss it, it’ll be the greatest mistake of your life”.

” Bounty Killer Spotlight “

” Farewell Ninjaman “

Screen Shot 2017-12-18 at 9.30.48 AM

When it comes to Dancehall toasters, here is my all time top five in no particular order…

1…BOUNTY KILLER.

2…MERCILESS.

3…BURRO BANTON.

4…CUTTY RANKS.

5…NINJAMAN.

Each one of these individuals have proven that they are no joke when it comes to patterns, inventive styles, crowd control, sound clashing, tone, discography, and influence….It’s unfortunate that Mr. Gun Pon Teeth (NINJAMAN) was arrested along with his son for a murder that took place a few years back….His sentencing is actually going down today so I seriously doubt we will see the DON GORGON anytime soon….

I haven’t studied the in’s and outs of the case as of yet, so I will not pass judgement at this time, but I will say that it is a very unfortunate situation that should not be happening to such an accomplished, straight up legendary pillar in the Dancehall world…

Here is a mix by MATRIXSOUND that showcases some of NINJAMAN’s finest moments…
