Jonathan Kim shot this video while he was at sound check for his gig at the Elbo Room in San Francisco with funky worm Exile this past week. As they came into the venue, he saw Exile and Teeko jamming out on their respective equipment, and he was impressed to say the least. Teeko has been making some noise with his group F.A.M.E. as well as recently working with Mark Ronson in NY for his upcoming album. Exile is coming with his “Radio Remix” album so keep an eye out for that. Great to see two artists come together, and create some amazing music together.
Dimlite released this intoxicating digital single containing two tracks. If you ask me “Roo (A Dedication)” is pure genius and somehow seems to stir up an array of intricate emotions. Rarely have I heard electronic music get so close to the heart of the matter and touch me in a way I wouldn’t have expected. The flipside, “Feedback Children” is pretty damn tight, but is more of a defuse range of sounds to me.
These two tracks were a part of Dimlite’s aborted 3rd album “Prismic Valuta Rising” and are now exclusively available for download on his Bandcamp page. Parts of named album will be released by Now-Again Records in shape of the “Prismic Tops” EP in 2010, followed by an all-new album, later that year. Also peep the video that dropped earlier this month…it’s a doozy.

Dimlite – Feedback Children
Oh my god, yes oh my god! This is what I personally have been waiting for for years. The legendary A Tribe Called Quest coming together to perform once more. So what Tip got a little older and Phife got a little chubbier…who gives a shit?! This video gives me goosebumps all over shit got me hyped us as hell while it’s only 8am right here. This footage was shot at The Knitting Factory in BK and was brought to you by Its The Official. I truly urge these guys to do a European tour, because I know that would make so many people happy.
First of all I’d like to give due props to Osman for gettin’ is hip to Stalley. He sent us a video a few months back and we liked it a lot, but I personally never digged deeper than that. Now my man Deluge recently did and in light of his On-Point interview, I thought it would be only right to get ya’ll hip to Madstalley as well.
This Ohio native hailing from New York dropped his mixtape “MadStalley: The Autobiography” last year, done over re-workings of Madlib beats showcasing his potential. Now 2010 is definitely Stalley’s year to blow. Stalley’s heavily featured on Ski Beatz upcoming “24 Hour Karate School” mixtape (on Dame Dash’ Creative Control label) and is also set to release a project in collaboration with Sa-Ra Creative Partners.
Ya boy P just hit me up on the mail with a bangin’ ass video shot by TheComeUpTv. The LAx Paperboys held their 4th Annual Holiday Party at Jane’s House in Hollywood, CA. As you can see in the video Rob Roy, Dom Kennedy & Pac Div held it down with performances as DJ Sean G kept the party live. What a way to end the year…stay COOL.
Well usually I’m not really into watching long interviews, but Homebase NYC and Hot Mop Films did a pretty decent job on the Off The Wall Sessions. Eventhough the sessions are in front off a wall everytime, it’s still interesting. They got some good quotes out of almost every interview. My personal favorite is the Tiron interview, so thats the one that got embedded, but you can check the other interviews with Shafiq Husayn, Exile, Brittany Bosco, Mike Baker The Bike Maker, and others right here. And if you need to Ketchup on Tiron you can download that here.
This shit is just hilarious! Check out this commercial and be amazed how Shafiq Husayn is a true Swedish hero…
Thank god we can end this year on a soulful note with Jesse Boykins‘ new “Itis” video. If we were to complain about something it would be the lack of high quality Soul! We honestly pray to god, that 2010 will be a year full of Soulful music…pray with us. This video was directed by Atif Ateeq and is off “The Beauty Created” album (which you all should have bought by now).
Earlier this year we met up with L.A.’s finest J*DaVeY and we had a blast. We asked them some questions about their performances, turn-ons and turn-offs, what they spend their cash on, the whole Cali movement, Dack Janiels and more. Now the backstage area at the Paradiso is loud as f*ck, so sorry for the background noise. It was an honour meeting both Brook & Brianna and special thanks to Joao Costa for the camera work and editing.
