With Independent labels being part of the modern day Hip-Hop landscape along with many kids attempting to jump start a music career by posting homemade music videos to youtube I thought it only right to this week include this article written by Laurent Fintoni for FACT Magazine entitled :
“Breaking down YouTube’s new premium service: what it means to indie labels and you”
You can read it here Breaking Down…

DJ Day sais:

Take me into change

Shadow sais:

For the first time, high-quality “wet versions” of DJ Shadow’s classic mash-ups from DJ Hero 1 and 2 are up! This is what the mixes would sound like if you got a ‘perfect score’ within game, with all scratches included. Shadow kills it on these tracks, and it’s a treat to finally make them available…enjoy!

SEEN AT The Diggers Union

Egon sais:

This is a mix of late 60s to mid 70s rock music from all over the world: America to Germany to Japan and everywhere in-between. It’s the type of rock Madlib used for the Rock Konducta records, and is a mixture of the incredibly rare and random dollar bin finds that makes crate digging in the rock idiom so much fun. A lot of this is underground (one example was literally recorded by Dusseldorf twenty-somethings in a bomb-shelter, a literally exorcising of Nazi demons through Krautrock), and some of it is from bands that had pop aspirations but recorded something heavy and probably a bit odd as the one-off awesome track on an otherwise forgettable album. Live mix using 2 CDJs, no edits, some mistakes, that’s the way it goes. Shout outs to Twink, Bunker Records, Franz Wippel, any band that spells April with a “y” instead of an “i,” state-run labels from former communist countries who had the nerve to get down with hard psych and Madlib, of course, for finding the funk in all of this.

Boiler Room sais:

We visited legendary hip-hop producer & 7″ encyclopedia, The 45 King, at his home in New Jersey for an extended DJ set. This guy has produced some of the biggest hip-hop tracks of the past 25 years (Stan, Hard Knock Life, The 900 Number) so it was a stand-up pleasure for him to grace us with an exclusive mix.


45 King also provided these 2 outtakes from the session

Also featuring Emauel Raheim Leblanc (GQ)
additional vocals by Sheda B
Chorus co-written by Ohene Savant

The LP version of this track features Guilty Simpson
Off Edo’s “After All These Years” 2xLP
