DJ Pings & Dephect-Mini Mix No. 1

DJ Pings x Dephect - Mini Mix No. 1 by Dephect on Mixcloud

Dephect sais:

In case you don’t know already, DJ Pings is the founder of one of the dopest independent Hip-Hop labels to ever emerge from the UK, King Underground Records. This mini mix is the first in a series, hopefully of many, and gives you a little taste of the music that Pings is into and the vibe that he represents through the label.

Pings sais:

Originally I was just going to do these mini mixes for myself for some iPod action, but then I thought it might be nice to post them up via Dephect. The idea is that each mix will fit into the next, so it’s like an ongoing project. All very simple, not really about skills, just dope music, hip hop and breaks.

K-Def – Scene DJ
Step Brothers – Dr. Kimble
Cappo – Thousand Word Exodus
Breaks Dig
Mark B & Blade – Bad Day (Instrumental)
M9 – Amulets
Damu – Fades Em’ Gone (Organ Grinder)

This week I chose this Vimeo from AnimalNewYork that profiles PHADE of The Lengendary Shirt Kings.

AnimalNY sais:

Even if you’re not familiar with the Shirt Kings, chances are that you’ve heard of them before in a rap lyric, or seen their work in outfits donned by the likes of LL Cool J, Jay Z, RZA and Jam Master Jay (RIP). The legendary graffiti-inspired art crew from New York pioneered early hip hop fashion. Their custom air brushed designs were the early precursors to modern day streetwear, now a $60 billion industry, and are renowned for creating one-off designs for New York personalities who would later reign as the crème de la crème of rap royalty.

Premiered by http://ambrosiaforheads.com and they say

Ambrosia for Heads is pleased to premiere a free download of notorious waterproof MC Ras Kass’ ‘ChristMESS EP’ sponsored by Platformz, an indie music and media app based search engine, to help kick off the holiday grind. ‘ChristMESS’ is a cohesive compilation of tracks featuring Felony Muzik, Doc Hollywood and Vooodu spanning Ras Kass’ extensive catalog from the resurgence of “Nature Of The Threat” off debut LP ‘Soul On Ice’ to “Yellow Snow” off his 2011 release ‘The Yellow Snow EP’. Brand new track “Frozen” is an unapologetic shock to the system tying the project together in a package that will surely power you through the ensuing seasonal madness. Ras Kass has been resetting bars in the Hip Hop community for the better part of the last two decades. Recent acclaim attributed to collaborative release of LP ‘Blasphemy’ with Detroit producer Apollo Brown under Mello Music Group has the underground buzzing. ‘ChristMESS’ is surely a segue bridging past, present and projects to come.

After a brief hiatus, Shots Fired returns with the legendary Souls of Mischief crew. They talk about Oakland, the roots of Hieroglyphics and their Hiero Imperium imprint, their stylistic evolution and their new collaborative album with Adrian Younge, “There is Only Now.” Plus, much more. (Interview starts at the 30 minute mark)

In addition, Nocando and Jeff catch up about the latter’s trip to Lil Wayne’s island mansion in Miami and the tragic situation in Ferguson.

DL HERE Fight the Power

De La sais:

The idea for the song came from a couple of samples, and the track’s vibe is earnest and has a pressing tone to it. The lyrics are commentaries of our struggles and successes, our weaknesses and strengths… the experiences… and trials and tribulations we have faced as human beings, a race, and as individuals. Lyrically Chuck brings a sense of authority and urgency. The power in his voice demands your attention. With Chuck on the track this is a dream come true for us.

Originally “The People” was suppose to drop in June around the same time the Chuck D/Hot 97/Peter Rosenberg situation took place. We chose to hold off and not add fuel to any fires. Our next aim was for a Black Friday release. Coincidentally the Ferguson tragedy took place, and more recently the non-indictment verdict. Somehow this song was destined to be a part of something more than just dropping a joint. We hope it will lend itself to something positive in these difficult times.

We created some merchandise for this song that is for sale (The People T-Shirt & Sweatshirt). Proceeds from the merch will be donated to two organizations: All Star Code and I Love Ferguson.

All Star Code is an organization that helps under served youth make their way into the tech industry. We’ve been building, strategizing, and working with developers for the past year, and we understand the importance of education in tech. We have a music tech company that we’ll be launching soon called Daisy (daisycollective.com/). It’s important that we have more people from our community and our culture involved in this space. We just want to do our part in making that happen and ultimately help build the future of music.

I Love Ferguson is a organization that’s helping to rebuild the town of Ferguson, MO. We feel strong about helping and supporting the small businesses that have been affected in that area.

House Shoes sais:

It’s been a minute.
But I’m back at it again with the final installment of The Gift series.
DRUGS BEATS hails from North Carolina and has had placements with 50 Cent, Ludacris, Lloyd Banks, Big Boi and many more.
Check out the leaker from The Gift Vol. 10, “The Worm”…
The Gift Vol. 10 will drop on djhouseshoes.com on December 25th, with limited vinyl release next year.


Even though Shoes said that The Gift series is rapping up he throws this in as well with the track from above.

Here’s another joint for y’all…

When I was in Tel Aviv a few weeks ago I linked with the homie Cohen.
While we were chillin’ he played me a joint that had an ill intro on it,
and I told him it would be a great fit for a remix of the Dirt joint off of
Let It Go, my debut record from a few years back.

He put it together and here you go.

DIRT. OhNo. ALC. Roc. Cohen Remix.

If you slept on Let It Go you still have time to wake up.

DJ Jazzy Jeff gives some insight to being a world traveling performer. With the non stop shows, constant travel, and the desire to sleep in, DJ Ferno leaves the crew to rest and finds some time to explore the streets of Sydney.

Even after creating a masterpiece together, Fatt Father and Marv Won are forced to disclose some disappointing news to Ro Spit that leaves him feeling a certain type of way. Join all three MCs on a journey to take the party where no party has gone before. Stay tuned for more from the Twin Towers….. “September 10th” COMING SOON!
