Homeslice IAMNOBODI decided to hand out some of the tastiness, cuz he’s “A Sucker For Love”. This joint didn’t make the previous “Elevated” album, but is now available as a free download for everyone. More b-sides will follow so keep an ear out for those. Oh and for the fans in Amsterdam…this Thursday you can catch Mr. Nobodi at Wavefiles x Weboogie at Club Up!
I told ya’ll South East Asia is waking the funk up. A small group of people have been pushing good new music over there and took it upon themselves to bring Opolopo and Amalia to Asia for a tour. To celebrate this Goodnws Peter and Amalia were asked for some musical niceness and behold an exclusive new joint called “Gado Gado Funk”. In case you didn’t know miss Amalia is a food junkie and loves Indonesian cuisine like no other. This delicious dish consists of vegetables covered in peanut sauce. Some righteous food for funkin’! Grab a free download of this while you can over at the Goodnws Soundcloud page.
We recorded this Stones Throw Special w/ Aloe Blacc at the Sound Gallery in Amsterdam yesterday. Got some nice exclusive joints in there so give it a listen. Aloe’s show tonight at Rotown Rotterdam has been sold out, so it’s gonna be hot & heavy. Big up to Stones Throw for bringing out so much good music over the years.
We were chilling at KCRW with Anthony Valadez last night and boy what a night it was. We’ve been doing so many things and staying up till 4am was pretty tiring. Had a blast though and we got to select some tunes that Anthony played at the end of his show. Check out his show HERE and show sum love..
Earlier today my man Full Crate called me up (sick as a dog) about this event Zwoel that’s taking place this Sunday at the Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. My man Mar is going to be performing live and also Szjerdene and Rahkshan (both from London) will be present to bless ya’ll with a live show. I know my Amsterdam peoples will be present to show love & support and I invite you all to join us (where’s my Rotterdam crew at?)
Crate hooked us up with 2 x 2 free tickets, so all you’ll have to do to win is comment. The first two people to correctly name the title of the upcoming Full Crate & Mar EP will win the tickets…it’s that easy! Just so you know what you’ll be missing in case you do not show up, we’ve added some audio for you to get ya’ll warmed up. Download Szjerdene’s Live demo HERE for free. Oh and of course the artwork was done by none other than our very own Deluge.
“Life is a shorty” is the second single from Fashawn’s Boy Meets World, entirely produced by Exile (who is going on a European Tour starting tomorrow, tour dates after the jump). Fashawn’s upcoming album Boy Meets World will be released Spring ’09. Picture: RSM Studios

It’s still early here, but J. Kim just hit us with a huge ray of sunshine. The wonderful Karriem Riggins (as an incentive) made an exclusive track for leaking which gives the listener a hint on what to expect for the upcoming Virtuoso Experience shows, with this lovely soulful joint “Soul on Top”. For the Marvin Gaye fans, you’ll probably recognize some “I Want You” in there..
Last saturday we were in Rotterdam to check out J*DaVeY and Muhsinah who were both performing. Big shout outs to the homey Deluge for the nice pictures (eventhough his lens was in the shop) and “Fat Lady” for the ambiance. If you missed it you a sucker…needless to say. We had a great time and next time Aime is cooking for everyone! No noodle soup or crappy falafel. I promise!
The interviews we did with both J*DaVey and Muhsinah will be online somewhere next month so keep an eye out for that. Visit HERE if you want to see the rest of the pics..
