Seeing together PANGEA and AJ Davila at the Burger Records Caravan of Stars shindig tomorrow night with concert companion. Should be fun.

Anyone seen them live? Not sure what to expect tbh

@heckawheel, you can't go wrong with a bit of Skibba and Det. The genre's two best MCs in my opinion. And Andy C is obviously wicked. They're also all still about, which is nice. Seen 'them a few times.


Also love this, although it's not strictly from the era. Just shows that Dizzee can spit over anything.

Cool project definitely worth supporting. I ended up donating and getting The Districts LP signed along with a Dr. Dog Easy Beat CD signed.

I feel like I should make an RTJ post, since seeing them was incredible. I saw them on Friday and it was one of the best shows of my life, for sure. There was three openers. The first openers was a group called David Ruffen Theory. These guys went hard. They got the crowd extremely hyped even though most people did not know who they were, and really got everyone stoked for RTJ. The second and third opener, Despot and Ratking, were solid too. Despot was dressed super well, but he was much more laid back and not very "hype". I hadn't heard of him but he'd be good smoking music. Ratking was kind of disappointing. He seemed very trashy and was just kind of sloppy, but it wasn't terrible.

Between the first and second openers, there was this group of people that pushed their way into our spots, and we ultimately got set back three rows or so. These people were super obnoxious and very drunk and annoying. It was very disheartening and got me pretty down, but then RTJ came on, they got shoved out, and all was right.

The show itself was incredible. Mike and El-P killed it. Other rappers I seen (sans Kendrick) do not bring nearly as much hype as these guys do. They were also super down to earth during the show, and signed some records that people in the front row were holding up.

After the show is when the night turned to be just stellar. As we were waiting for the crowd to clear out, Mike and El were walking around and eventually ended up at the merch booth to sign shit and talk. We were one of the last people getting out of the venue, so we got to talk to them for a bit. Mike said he loved my shirt and asked to sign it. I told him to write something inspirational, and was not disappointed. I also bought the new album on vinyl and had them sign it. It was a wild night.

Here is some pics:

One more thing - RTJ played in St. Louis yesterday, the same day as the Ferguson decision. Regardless of what you think and what you believe, the speech Mike gave before going on stage was very powerful. I encourage you to check it out.

@alby Despot is so dope. If you liked him check this out: http://www.reddit.com/r/nofiller/comments/2l3y0r/discography_despot_dopest/ He talked about his upcoming album when I saw RTJ in North Carolina a few weeks ago. They killed it. Ratking wasn't there because they (or one of the members) got arrested after the local police raided RTJ's tour bus.

@heckawheel

have u seen the interview where fatima al qadiri talks about how she bought a yohji skirt for 30 bucks at some mad sales they have in kuwait.

it's a really funny interview.

it's from four years ago. i wonder how she feels about it now.

been interested in concept albums or songs made to be listened to for specific purposes or during specific activities.

see brian eno's music for airports:
Spoiler:


and LCD Soundsystem's 45:33 (commissioned by nike to be for running/jogging)
Spoiler:


any one know of more?

@alby, listening to it now (amazing so far, thanks for sharing). I'd say it's definitely a concept album in the sense it's about a central story/topic. however, I'm thinking of stuff that's intending to be listened to while doing something or being somewhere if that makes sense.

i remember when this came out playing the intro to Wudang like 15 times in a row. such a sweet drum lick/ vocal effect.

you know the first song on the album is a sinead o'connor cover? i guess 'shanzhai' is the chinese word specifically for knock-offs made in china. pretty interesting from a conceptual perspective imo, especially considering the lyrics of the original, but yeah, i can understand how someone might be more interested in the rest of the album. i'm into it though, i find all the vocals on the record p innovative

pretty cool quote from a profile/ interview she did with the guardian when Asiatisch came out

i feel like grime has such good potential for conceptual projects
i kind of read the Logos record that came out this time last year as an interpretation of space as depicted in action movies... insane production value, uses machine/ weapon sounds as percussion, really plays off of sparcity/ silence, sometimes the synths are like 70's style kind of retro, sometimes they're really overbearing/ intimidating

This video has just emerged from 14 years ago of what is essentially, as Blackdown puts it, "the Rosetta Stone of dubstep". It's pretty much the exact point that garage started to transition into dubstep. Where normally DJs would play conventional garage and then throw in a few darker tracks, this set is comprised solely of the dark 2-step sound. In the room is all the producers, distributors and label managers that would go on to establish the scene. Really cool stuff.

Kendrick Lamar debuts untitled song on Colbert's last show. FANTASTIC.

http://thecolbertreport.cc.com/videos/p ... rick-lamar

lyrics:

Spoiler:
(What did the Asian say?)
A peace of mind
That's what the Asian said, I need a divine
Intervention was his religion and now I'm surprised
Him believing in Buddha, me believing in God
Asked me what am I doing, he said "taking my time"
Meditation is a must, it don't hurt if you try
See you thinking too much plus you too full of yourself
Worried about your career, ever think of your health?
(What did the Indian say?)
A piece of land
That's what the Indian said, I needed demand
Telling me longevity is in the dirt, buy some property first
Profit a better dollar with generational perks
Equity at his best, really, you should invest
These tangible things expire, don't you expect
Income with so much outcome and yes
Look at my heritage, we blessed
(Now what the black man say?)
A piece of nookie
That's what the black man said, I needed to push me
To the limit, satisfy my hunger
Do it all for a woman, hair cut to a wool
We like to live in the jungle, like to play in the peach
What you saying to me?
He said "fellow teen, come back to reality for a week"
Nookie is power, cut on a new chick every night
I wouldn't be prouder, you should allow it
(What the white man say?)
A piece of mines
That's what the white man wanted when I rhyme
Telling me that he selling me just for $10.99
I go platinum from rapping, I do the company fine
What if I compromise? He said it don't even matter
Make a million or more, you living better than average
You losing your core following, gaining it all
Put a price on my talent, I hit the bank and withdraw
Hit the bank and withdraw, hit the bank and withdraw
Put myself in the rocket ship and I shot for the stars
Tell me what you accomplished and what he said to the boy
I'mma make you some promises that you just can't ignore
The profession anonymous as an artist
I don't target your market
You ain't signing your signature when I throw you my wallet
Now the rappers are giving their demo all in the toilet
World tour, your masters, market, I need ya


speaking of Run the Jewel, I was the first to upload El-P's Deep Space 9mm video to youtube, 8 years ago. I don't think it shows up in search anymore due to copyright but here it is, with 10 times the view of the newer upload:

somebody mentioned green day in passing yesterday and i realized i hadn't listened to them for years (except in the background of tony hawk games), so i downloaded this album and now i'm having flsahbacks of when i was in 3rd grade and we would go in the cellar in one of our friend's house and play the cd and sing along to boulevard of broken dreams and get all quiet when he says fuck and giggle about it :woop:

Absolutely incredible lineup at Fabric tomorrow. Possibly the best lineup of the year. All three rooms are absoultely banging. Everyone in London should come down. Looking forward to Mella Dee especially as I've not seen him out before.

Also, more importantly, Islington Council are taking a vote tonight to possibly revoke Fabric's license. If this happens it will be a sad day for nightlife in the UK. It's easily the best club in London with one of the best sound systems in the world. Be sure to sign the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/islington-coun ... -s-license

This is pretty much the best intro guide to dubstep I've found. runs the gamut from 'i can't even tell this is a song and changing between measures' and moderately poppy tracks/albums (london zoo, lockout, etc.). If you like the sound of an artist on here definitely check out their entire discography. i can definitely recommend clubroot's extended discography as well as skream, instra:mental, zomby and benga's works. you listen to grime a lot heck so maybe see who does the production for some MCs you like a lot and they may have solo works as well.

This is definitely required listening. It's from Mary Anne Hobbs' Radio 1 show back in 2006 and is probably the most famous set ever. Marks the point that dubstep started to break through from the underground. It's pretty much just all the biggest names in a room together playing their biggest tracks trying to show the world this new sound they've got.

I'll post some Shackleton.

This guy makes some of the coolest sounding electronic music I've heard, he generally mixes the UK Bass sound with a load of african percussion noises, often with cryptic spoken word samples overlayed which sounds fken doep. He's also done some stuff where for the sub-bass sound he used samples of an actual organ's bass notes and that's rad.

This whole Redbull 20before15 series is nice in general and its kinda odd watching redbull evolve into a lifestyle brand (eSports ventures, music, etc.) but I think they're doing a great job
