Gearing up for their 2009 release of The Takeover, Zion I are prepping the fans with ‘The Search and Seizure Mixtape’ release featuring new tracks and remixes including Iriscience, Del, Santogold, Kflay, The Grouch & Talib Kweli available digitally and on physical tapes. That’s right, break out your old boom box stereos, because these limited edition tapes are hard to find. You might find one inside an Alameda Parking Ticket slip outside of your car at Laney College or on ebay getting yourself into a bidding war, however, Om has a nice hand full of these special tapes and will send them out to the first four people that email (include mailing address) firstname.lastname@example.org with Search & Seizure Mixtape in the subject line. If you are one of the lucky winners, you will receive a confirmation email.
Hot off the press, Om Records recording artist Black Spade just sent me a couple remixes he finished up in LA before he heads home to St. Louis. First up, Spade gives his filtered keys interpretation of 88-Keys ‘Stay Up! (Viagra)’ feat. Kanye West. Spade uses his own brand of electro hop to give this song a whole new vibe. Make sure to check out 88-Keys ‘The Death of Adam’ instores now! Next, Spade gives Jesse Boykins III ‘Tabloids’ a whole new face lift. Once again, Spade use of off kilter drums and electro keys creates a style unique to his own. Make sure to keep an eye out for more from Spade, i hear rumors of possible collaborations with Naledge of Kidz in the Hall??? Click the banner to download.
DJ J-Boogie fresh off the release of Soul Vibrations is set to hit the NYC area next weekend. Playing for Giant Step & Turntables on the Hudson, Manhattan and Brooklyn represent, J-Boogie will bring the best of the west coast as he spins an ethnic gumbo of world, dance, hip hop, soul and selected album cuts.
Fresh out the studio, my boy Amplive just sent me this a new remix he produced for XL Recordings’ Tapes ‘N Tapes. As they gear up for the release of their third album, Tapes ’N Tapes wanted to keep their fans happy so they enlisted Amplive to remix ’The Dirty Dirty’ off their last release. In perfect time for the election, The Dirty Dirty summarizes the economic stresses that we are facing today. Just another reminded to get off your ass and vote!
