Tonite: Josh Wink at Fluid

This man holds down a residency every last Wednesday of the month. This is must go to party in Philly if you like dance music. I'm busy and lazy so I just pulled the below from Jae Slay and Saints & Sinners.










The Local Town Hero Josh Wink!!

One of the most Humble,Creative and Hardest Working DJ's in the city, returns for his Monthly Night of Magic at Fluid.


Here's How I Remember Josh,


It was 1994/95, I had just moved back to Philly from Hawaii where Raves weren't anything compared to how it was Stateside. I went with Rob Paine the first night I came back to one of the NASA parties up in NYC.The Other DJ's on the bill were Keoki, Scott Richmond and a few others. The ONLY One worth remembering was JOSH.

His DJ Set was a Rollercoaster of Extented Drum Builds and Deep Rich Bass tinged with some Acid & ranging from Tribal to Drum and Bass and whatever else he felt like mixing it up with.

That Night I'm Positive I wasnt the only Newest Fan! He had the whole place moving and begging for more.

So here we are It's 2007.The man's had a countless amount of original material released under his belt

"Higher State of Conciousness" "Are You There?" "Dont' Laugh" "I AM READY"

Remix projects for RadioHead, Moby, Skinny Puppy and DJ Sneak to name a Few.

So it's pretty safe to say that Josh is still just as Passionate about the music as he's ever been!

Life Again



Here I've cut together my favorite scene from the movie Babel and a great Nouveau Riche song that, in my mind, have very similar thematic premises.

Among all the ways to enjoy life --drinking, taking pills, partying-- relationships still have the greatest potential for disappointment.

But that won't stop us from trying.

Mad Decent Podcast 12: James Brown

It was definitely a sad day when I heard James Brown passed away. He was the hardest working man in show business and created some amazing music. The mix is brought to you by Cosmo baker and the words are from Diplo.
James brown died on christmas, and I couldn’t do any more podcasts til we did it about him.
cause james brown gave birth to this podcast and he gave birth to everything in modern music - nothing is the same after he was here and now he’s gone and I feel bad for people in heaven that have to rewind through his life cause it must be pretty damn nuts. This mix of JB songs and production credits is under 30 minutes and I thought I was listenin to it for 3 days before it ended.
Mix was done by cosmo baker.. he’s a true hero to me.
i used to go to fluid on monday nights to check cosmo at his party called remedy.. it was on fuckin monday nights and it was packed thick and cosmo would drop his signature style of hip hop and classics and wierd stuff no one would expect but would turn it out..

This is the follow up to this past summers’ Home for Carnival, which spotlights some of the biggest soca hits from the past 5 years and was collaborated on with fellow G13 member, El Professor.
Music has always been a part of L’s life. Starting with piano lessons at age 5 that lasted for the following 10 years, to playing guitar and drums in various bands through high school and now DJing.
Through the years double L has played all over the Philadelphia metro area, including venues like Transit, Shampoo, Chrome, Loie, Filo’s (RIP), Sugar Mom’s & many more.

What it Do

Beats, check 'em out. Still recovering from last weekend, need some more Vitamin C. Will post crazy amounts of pictures by Monday, promise.

Friday
  • Until gone - %50 off sale at Pedestrian (252 South Street) on select brands.
  • EDIT:Philebrity reminded about an art opening tonight at ICA called "Locally Localized" featuring local galleries like Space 1026, Black Floor and more. Check this, its incredible.
  • Girl Talk at Johny Brendas with Plastic Little - Last time he played here was a random house party in South Philly. This time he gets written up in the Inquirer and the Philly Weekly. Needless to say tickets are sold out, I looked on Craigslist and there are only wanted tickets. When I saw him in LA, I found it to be a pretty good show seeing as he is just clicking on his computer every few minutes. First he brings all the girls on stage and then proceeds to jump around taking his shirt off waving it around like a helicopter. Just don't bother trying to pick out every sample he uses or your brain will overheat. Oh and maybe, just maybe you will be able to win tickets from Philebrity & R5 by 4:30. (I'm sure snarky emails will be rewarded)
  • Cage and friends at the Church (btw, if you haven't noticed Cage switched his style up and got signed to def jux)
  • Hands & Knees - Sparks fueled hipsters dance to Jhn Rdn and friends
  • AJ Ready Wright at 700 club cause who doesn't like 700?
  • Rave on with Double Vision and Unbirthday
  • Oh and BobSaget at the Tower Theater, have you seen the Aristocrats?
Saturday
  • Beats and Rhymes - Reef the Lost Cause on the mic with all of his producers squaring off against one another. That bol emynd is in the competition so root for him.
  • Yurayura - House and techno with Bart Skils and the funkshun crew
  • Rowdy Send Off - At Medusa, DNB send off party for Nate Day and Steve Rea
  • Tech Support at Bubble House
  • Stakeout on Acid - Acid house and tech house at Upstairs at Sals
edit:
Sunday
  • Dan the Swede & friends - New weekly at Upstairs at Sals (thanks Jawntronix for reminding me)

Omar - Get Money


Heres the latest in Emynd's t-shirt line featuring the one and only Omar Little from The Wire. If you haven't seen The Wire, go rent it but to fill you in now, Omar is a stick up man who holds up local drug dealers. You have to have a code, Omar's is that he only believes in making money from those already in the "game" proclaiming that he "never put my gun on no citizen." Omar's gun is a shotgun often tucked under his trench coat. Omar is legendary in Baltimore and is scared of no one. To see the shirt in action pick up a Philadelphia Weekly as emynd is sporting it for the photo shoot accompanying the Beats & Rhymes party this Saturday or just click here (flash won't let me copy the pic).

Get the shirt over at Crossfaded Bacon.

Pharoahe Monch - Gun Draws

This is an absolutely incredible video I first saw over at HoustonSoReal. Pharoahe Monch album dropping in Spring.



EDIT: Its "Gun Draws". Also check out GunDraws.com for the lyrics. Read these facts on gun violence. 2006 was one of the worst years for homicides in over a decade with 344 out of 406 murders in the city attributed to firearms. Whats worse is that as of the 15th there were 25 murders already compared to 14 last year (I don't agree with his logic at all, much more to it than city government corruption.) One last thing, murders are up everywhere this year, especially in cities with over a million people. I've lived here for more than 7 years and have been lucky enough not to be touched by any of this. I've heard shots but nothing more. No matter what city I lived in I would be still be talking about this.

More on Drama and Cannon

First up, they're out on $100,00 bond. Drama was on ATL radio but didn't mention much about it and mostly just talked about his upcoming album. Over at Mixunit.com, mixtapes are gone. Reports from Idolator indicate you can still buy Drama mixtapes on iTunes. All is not lost yet.

HoustonSoReal breaks it down in three different ways
As mentioned in the hearsay article above
New York Times Weighs In
Lil Wayne Responds
  • Weezy says "Play the Game Fair"
    • Why is Weezy throwing dude under a bus? I really can't figure him out at all. Does he have any idea what hes talking about? Weezy, you wouldn't have charted a million without Drama.
    • Meanwhile DukeDaGod from Dipset is actually talking sense:
      • "Why are [the RIAA and FBI] getting involved?" Duke asked. "Leave us alone. Let us make our hip-hop. Nobody is dying, nobody is killing nobody. It's just music being made. Everybody is gonna feel it whether you're on the radio, not on the radio. Even if you're a consumer, you gonna feel it, 'cause it's gonna be hard to find certain tapes. Certain people are not going to carry the mixtapes anymore because they know what could happen. It's so many people that wanna hear our stuff. We get e-mails from all over the world. They don't care about the RIAA, they wanna hear some Dipset, they wanna hear some Drama. So it's messed up for the whole world."
Finally one last thing to leave you with from someone who works in the industry for a major
not to make things worse... but...

I sadly have too much insight into this situation due to my job....

I can guarantee you Drama had rights to every song on those tapes....

the majors have departmetns dedicated to "mixshow" ya know, the whole hot 97 funkmaster flex or cipha sounds playing what they're "feelin" on the radio. that whole thing is orchestrated. just like radio spins

basically, there are local people in every city (I'm sure you DJs know them) who tap the "heavy hitter" djs and have them on lock... a "promotional team" so to speak. so the mixshow department at the major label will PAY a "promotional team" 10K or more to get a song on the streets... in reality, that money is being funnelled directly to DJs for ideal placement on a mix tape and to get the single played extra at the club.

Drama is taking the fall for the INDUSTRY. since payolla is illegal, all the majors will deny any involvement and say they just paid the promotional team. Drama takes the hit.

and when you clear a track, you need publishing AND master clearance

the publisher -- whoever owns the samples, rights to the song etc. AND
the master -- the artist -- they have to say its ok for you to use their voice/likeness

when a major puts a song on the streets, they have cleared it already (it sucks i do this on a daily basis and its like pulling fucking teeth).

its all tied up together and this dude got his hustle on and put on SO many people, and do you think the majors are going to expose their ways and show that their "street cred" is just paid off? HA. theyre gonna let him fall.

the RIAA sucks and has this delusional ideal that they can "clean up" the industry. Taking down someone who is trying to get music out there is NOT the way to do it. Exposing the way things are TRULY done is. too bad there are so many multi million dollar majors with loobyists and shit making sure they dont get touched by the law.

i am yet again disgusted by the machine that pays me. and sadly every day learn more and more that my dream of "changing the industry" was incredibly naieve.

on a more refreshing note -- i met lil flip today and he actually went outside, climbed up a pole and put up his own posters. kinda funny watching his bling swing around in the freezing cold, but i thought y'all would appreciate that image.


More updates when I find out.

Free Drama & Cannon

Holler at the PR dude responsible for the innate ramblings in the below article. Matthew Kilgo MKilgo@RIAA.com

Edit: Here is a link to the Fox news report where you can see Mr. Kilgo himself.

Aphiliates Music Group Raided

The Aphiliates Music Group was raided yesterday afternoon at the behest of the RIAA. The Fulton County SWAT team and Clayton County Police brought all 17 employees in for questioning on warrants to arrest DJ Drama and Don Cannon who were among the 17. Drama and Cannon are being held for racketeering without bond.
From the RIAA:
"These guys are actively advertising online. They've got a website that they're advertising from, that's where you place your orders and that's how the orders are shipped out," Matthew Kilgo of the RIAA told local reporters. "Statistics also show that you can make up to a 90% profit just off the resale of counterfeit CDs. So there's huge money to be made in it, and there's no stigma attached to purchasing it."
Resale of counterfeit CDs? Huh? Mixtapes are a promotional tool that the labels have been falling over themselves for. See also Papoose, Young Jeezy etc. It seems as though the Gangsta Grillz series apparently got too big and popular for its own good. Yet still, the RIAA PR story was that they were reselling counterfeit CDs. These CDs are of course full of tracks from the labels, partially funded by the labels and the labels are in turn funding the RIAA. It is exactly instances like this where people don't care about downloading music for free.
DJ Drama was born and raised in Philadelphia and later moved to Atlanta where he went to college at Clark Atlanta University.

Scottie B / Mad Decent / Unruly Online

We just had to do a mashup post when mentioning the new Mad Decent blog. Mashups are all the rage or something and they have to do with dinosaurs like triceratops and diplodocus and other crazy extinct giant animals. Also, you can expect all sorts of unknown music that will rule the dance floors in like two months from Paul Devro.

From said blog, so I can tie in with the next part of teh mash up, there are sets from the one and only Scottie B. founder of Unruly Records, king of Bmore club and more. Here is what Diplo has to say bout it bout it:
for me, comin from hollertronix… thats cool like we get a good rep for fucking up the DJ scene , but to help invent a genre is kinda a whole wheat bread loaf crazy.. ive djed with scotty, hes a run of the mill black music staple DJ, he rocks the fitted hats the clean sneakers the polo shirts and holds down clubs likes the paradox on the weekends where metal detectors are manditory and he throws it down. Scotty is a DJ foremost and he knows every new hip hop track that bangs on urban radio… at the same time he can give you a comprehensive house music history if you step to him….. but bottom line scotty b loves music and in this set hes droping blqstarr, sinden , kw griff, switch, fergie, mia, internet only bootlegs and classic baltimore club that only this dude has ripped from his vinyl .. .. its like all this new house music awakened a sleeping giant…. this isnt a ableton mix this is live from Sonar. check it on thursdays or go and buy hollertronix 6 vinyl at www.turntablelab.com where you get the Unruly Simon joint that is a complete take over in 2007
Scottie B - Live at Sonar part 1
Scottie B - Live at Sonar part 2

So, Unruly has now leap frogged into the 21st century and beyond and is opening up their Catalog and letting all you go at it. Singles are 1.99, albums are either 5.99 or 7.99 and they're all high quality mp3's that you can play tonight at your favorite club and completely blow away the dance floor with tracks from Low Budget, Scottie B, KW Griff, Blaq Starr, Doo Dew Kidz and more. Rod Lee has his On The Download EP up there which you know will slay em in the club.

The Love Movement at Threadless


The Love Movement is an incredible art collective originally based out of Philly but now in LA still loving and representing Philly always. Check out what Ropeadope has to say:
Trippin through Philly I picked up on the scent of The Love Movement - one of the city's more prolific and creative coalitions. With love as the backbone, and social awareness as the neckbone, art & design take over as the weapons of choice. Dropping bits and pieces of objects in the community that beautifies and educates. An idea worth emulating.
Their main social awareness project right now has to deal
TLM currently has three tee shirts up on Threadless for you to vote on. Check 'em out as they're killer. My personal favorites are the one above and this one asking the all important question, "What if Saddam Skated?"


All money from the Darfur shirt will go to benefit the efforts with SaveDarfur.org. Click now to sign the pledge.

Additionally, all sales from The Love Movement art go to a village in the West African nation of Benin. Their most recent project was to build a well.

Vote now for With Our Two Hands, Save Darfur, What if Saddam Skated? and NBA or Art?

Curtis Vodka - Blentcast 5


Blentcast #5 is now up over at Blentwell. This time featuring the one and only Curtis Vodka. Its all straight bmore fire. The full mixtape I Just Fucked Your Girlfriend will be out soon. Sweden look out and West Coast look out in February.

Its First First Friday and that only happens once a year. Hopefully the weather will hold out so it won't be too bad. Unseasonably warm temperatures continue with the high of 70 possible this weekend. Our usual staple of White Tees White Belts has been postponed until next month as the bols Emynd and Bo Bliz work on their debut record which should be ready for next month's White Tees White Belts. Stay tuned and I'll keep u in the know.

Post Holiday Sales Abound

Sales abound in our fair city (mostly for the fairer sex) and Daily Candy has the wrap up from stores including Sugarcube, Vagabond (both of which you can check out tonight during First Friday), Echochic and more.

Drop the Lime Mix

Over at Flamin Hotz they just posted a brand new mix from Drop the Lime out of the Trouble and Bass crew. The Bass Bandits crew debuted at 4 over at Turntable Lab so go help them push it to number 1. The mix is hot and includes 2 reedits of the Get Up smashdown along with Math Head's Magnum track.

Get it here and then head to NYC on Saturday for the party listed to the left. Do not go if you are afraid of lots of people going crazy to heavy bass music. You will leave sweat/beer drenched and tired.

Cassete Playa

Words cannot describe this. Long live acid rave.


I think this is some sort of fashion company that takes their inspiration from 1992 acid back when drum n bass was hardcore and Storm was taking over NYC. Clearly with the influx of ugly colorful clothes, I can see this being the next hot line. Sadly its only available in London, Tokyo and Paris.
