September 24th, 2010 was mos’ definitely a night to remember. This is the reason why I love hip-hop. Under one roof you had Black Milk, Elzhi (of Slum Village) and DJ House Shoes displaying head nodding, hip shaking lyrics over thought provoking grooves. Emcees back by a live band & an ill DJ what else can you ask for?

All in celebration of Black Milk’s latest album release,Album Of The Year. A rare album, in which I was actually able to listen through the entire album, from track to track, and stay interested, engaged & entangled by Black Milk’s witty wordplay. Yes, people, this evening Frequency has done it again!

It’s another installment from Zion I’s Amp Live delivering a definite dose of electric funk. Coming from a history of defying all boundaries when it comes to the contemporary sounds of music, this video is evidence that the mission lives on.

Prepare yourself as Amp Live plays the role of a electro-magnetic maestro as he guides you through an electric fairytale of injected images of breaking dancing, ninjas, & chickens (that’s right I said it). This video takes you on a muscle bond journey of beats that even I have a problem NOT moving too. Damn it, for being so catchy! ‘Chick Pop’ was recently featured on MTV’s Buried Life. You can get the track off of Amp Live’s recent solo album, “Murder At The Discotech”.
