Over a week ago we had the honor of playing with B.Bravo and TOKiMONSTA at the BCKWLD! event in Amsterdam. To give Amsterdam a small taste of what they’ve been missing out on in London, we intvited Red Bull Radio to record both their sets and we’re happy to share them with you. We also shot some nice video footage and asked both Cali residents about their RBMA adventures. Big shout out to Joao Costa for the camera work and editing.
Ya’ll know about TOKiMONSTA already, but in case you haven’t check out her live-set.
Buddy Bravo played a funked up set going from G-Funk to Dubstep. Check it out below..
London connect baby! We met Nick from Spine TV before Theo Parrish played at Plastic People last week. Homegirl Fatima who’s “Mind Travellin’ EP just dropped gets nothing but love. Check out this dope documentary about the Eglo fam and why Fatima is missing some hair. Big ups to Alex, Steve and Sam of course.
Recently Damon aka Dam-Funk aka the ‘Ambassador of Boogie Funk’ was in London and visited the Red Bull Music Academy to do a lecture. I must say I found it very intriging and too bad we had to miss this one. Hopefully next week we’ll have the honor of seeing Muhsinah, J.Rocc or even Flying Lotus on that couch. Really feeling D-F on never giving up on your dreams and letting nobody hold you back. Check out what else he had to say and get out the popcorn for this…enjoy!
Mayer Hawthorne wishes it would rain, but frankly I don’t. Here in Amsterdam the sun has just began to show itself and already women are pulling out their short skirts upon feeling the very first rays of sunlight. Anyhow…this is a fantastic video for a fantastic song. Can’t really add a lot more except that it was directed by Henry DeMaio and that Stones Throw deserves some props for this one again.
My man Front2Blaq just sent me this video (check it after the jump) of B.Lewis and I had to share this with ya’ll. This young Californian is currently studying sound audio and I truly love the way “Day Two” sounds. To my surprise there’s a lot more where this came from. Mr. Lewis dropped his “Talking Chairs” beat tape HERE for FREE and if you take the time to visit his Bandcamp, you’ll find lots more audible goodies there! Most intriguing I find this triology where feelings come gliding across that synthesizer as if it was nothing…I’m really feeling this a lot! Shouts to Jay Scarlett for posting this on his blog a couple of days ago.

Deluge and me just came back from Joya Mooi‘s album pre-listening party at MC. Late as usual we missed the whole shebang, but still got to chill with Full Crate, Mar, SirOJ, Joya, Yoji and miss Mountainwood for a minute. I had heard an early leak of “When I Take A Step Back” (produced by Presto) and was semi impressed at the time. After having heard the rest of the album I can truly say this…I’m a fan of miss Mooi! Not because she has the looks, not because she’s a nice person, but because I truly admire the way she comes across as an artist.
One of my favorites is the duet with Mar called “My Day”. Her debut album “Hard Melk” is a soundtrack for the new theater play BH and features almost every single Dutch producer you’d want on your album. Just to name a few: SirOJ, Presto, Hayzee, Wan, Dub Spensa and Crate who kinda put everything together musically. You can check out the entire album over HERE and view her video after the jump. Hurry up and be amazed…

Today is the 4th anniversary of Dilla’s untimely passing. At Mochilla, they’ve spent the past year working on A Suite for Ma Dukes. Until now they only released videos of entirely instrumental pieces, but today – in homage to the man responsible for all this – they have released the first vocal performance from SFMD. Detroit singer Dwele sang the classic “Angel” that night without rehearsal, but with Miguel Atwood-Furguson‘s beautiful arrangements. Shout out to V-Tech, B+ and J.Kim.
Inglewood, CA native Casey Veggies dropped his “Customized Greatly Vol. 2” album last summer. This fresh ass track “Rollin By” was on there and was produced by ya boy Polyester The Saint and Fresh Chuck Daily for HellaGooD productions. The video was released yesterday and I gotta holla at P for those slick ass Black Caeser sunglasses. You might have seen those before on Erykah Badu in Shafiq Husayn‘s video, but that’s because Steve ‘Thundercat’ Bruner designs these. Imma have to pick one up this summer! In case you missed it…it’s a FREE download. Video after the jump.
