SLIMZEE!!!

All about Bogle tonight @ East Village!


Photobucket


This is the biggest flyer I could find... but still, DJ Slimzee (!!!) (Pay As U Go Selecta, Dubplate Father, Grime Champion) headlines.. I can't remember the last time I saw Slimzee's name on a flyer so I'll definitely be reaching. He used to kill it back in the day. I have a few sidewinder recordings on my old dead-out PC which I'm hoping I will one day fix, of him and Dizzee Rascal/Tinchy Stryder from like 2003!

Here is a Sidewinder Promo CD from 2003 mixed by Slizee and hosted by Riko Dan

Click here to download it...

Theses were the days man! I loved it.. Minimal beats and big bass-lines, and big energy from the MCs rather than non stop shankarific bars.

Oi You, Karen Koltrane (Teens of Thailand), Work It and Blaise Bellville all play also.

So yeah reach Bogle if your in East later, I'll be lurking...

Morgan Zarate & Vula @ Deviation



+ ESKA (Surprise PA, inc. tracks from Morgan's Project)

Em & Proof



This is an old Eminem & Proof radio freestyle i came across on youtube. Blatantly both totally wasted, freestyle flowin' and keep it proper tight. They connected as rappers when the free-styled together better than any other rap duo you can name!



Here's another one. This was the end part of an interview that was done with Kurt Loder on MTV in the States when Eminem was coming up.

R.I.P Proof. Big up all the real hip-hop!

GL Tron


It's sick.

I love Tron anyway, it's one of my favourite films visually, and to be honest was a bit skeptical at first about this game, as most Tron games I've played have tended to be a bit naff, but this one is heavy.. Its a game for the Mac created by Andreas Umbach, It can be played as a 1 player, or as a multi-player with up to 4 players. You can assign the controls to different areas of your keyboard so everyone can play with space. There are 2 simple controls, right and left. You can also control the camera angle of the game by moving the touch-pad or mouse on your mac.. BAD.


The aim of the game is to be the last player riding. (The original Tron music is used as the soundtrack for the game as well by the way, zoop zoop)


It reminds me a lot of 'Snake 2' from the old Nokia phones, the one on the later models like (i think) the 8310 (the little red and black one) and the 'Matrix Phone'

But yeah anyway you can download it here if you have a MAC
So at the moment I'm collaborating/managing an pseudo-anonymous political preacher and artist from NYC called HERO, I met her out there when I was living there last year and she's bangin'. She's done a few bits in London you can check it out on my website (http://www.maxusartmanagement.com/) go to the artist section.

I was with her this afternoon and took some photographs of some new shit she's working on...

Top Ten One-Liners

Photobucket


Listening to a lot of MF Doom recently has got me hooked on his one-liners..

Here are some of my favourites:

1. "Crime don't pay, listen youth,
It's like me holding up the line at the kissing booth"

'Doomsday' from 'Operation: Doomsday'

2. " A lot of them sound like they in a talent show
So I give 'em something to remember like the Alamo"

'Rhymes Like Dimes' from 'Operation: Doomsday'

3. " Charge cash for an autograph,
Say shit to make your daughter laugh and slaughter the ass"

'Kon Queso' from 'MM Food'

4. "Retarded in real life, on the mic Rain Man
stand close to his main man like a chain gang"

'?''

5. " Borderline schizo, sort of fine tits tho,
Pour the wine, hold the grind, quarter to nine, lets go"

'Meat Grinder' from Madvillainy


5. " Got more soul than a sock with a hole"

'Rhinestone Cowboy' from Madvillainy

6. "Member of the most player-hated race,
who made this invaded place and stated with a straight face"

'G.M.C' from 'Viktor Vaughn : Vaudeville Villain'

7. " Hell, I made it momma,
a Grammy for the world's most celebrated rhymer"

'G.M.C' from ' VV : VV '

8. " Twist the green, it's laced with antihistamine,
enough to make you make your face like Mr. Bean"

'Mr. Clean' from ' VV : VV '

9. "It's mirror o'clock, I think i'm sober,
how about we think this over, over a can of king cobra?"

'Raedawn' from ' VV : VV '

10. "I had this style ever since I was a child
I got this other style I ain't flip in a while, it goes:
Pure scientific intelligence, with one point of relevance
MC's whose styles need Vellamints
And once the smoke clears, tell 'em it's
The Super motherfucking Villain, nigga came through raw like the elements.."

'Dead Bent' from 'Operation: Doomsday'

False...

Such an exciting new brand for Donuts that I'm gunna make it my first post. False is a seriously high grade brand, lovingly handmade by Le Messie & Amanda Scully. Every item is hand screen printed n finished by the duo & comes in it's own ziplock bag with hanging tags & stickers. The price may be a little more than our usual T's but I think very worth it. This seasons range contains collabs with our dearest Fatsarazzi & also artist She One. Look out for this is Donuts very very soon...
