Thorts aka Adrian Somerville - Louder ACTIONS are NEEDED

In all honesty I am yet to listen to this thirteen track EP in it's entirety, but I am very familiar with 'Thorts' and his honest expression over dusty beats by 'Proph 1' who handles the majority of the productions on this project...

Dusted Off: Jay Dee aka J Dilla 2003 interview

I always had this as an audio file but recently came across the actual vid on youtube and thought I'd up it to the 'Dusted Off' section. If for some reason you don't know about the classic Champion Sound project Jay is speaking about (Jay Dee & Madlib aka Jaylib) I'm sure you can find some of the tracks on youtube. Otherwise get yourself a copy and bounce!!

The Kemistry Bio

The East London duo of vocalist/songwriter Kemi and Producer/Beat maker Bare Beats magnificently blend two disparate pools of musical influences and differences to create a new sounds that defies simple categorisation.

As journalists have attempted to slap ‘trip-hop’, ‘down tempo dub’, ‘dub’ and many more, the truth is the only way to describe The Kemistry sound is to call it...The Kemistry sound.

Rocking shows with a live backing band and frequently collaboration with MCs, The Kemistry have created and intense buzz in the UK underground music scene, solidified with the release of their 2009 EP 'The Tour', and their follow up single 'The Core'

Karl Hinds - ETHER 2010 - Smiler reponse

Karl Hinds responds to Smiler's 'Destroy & Rebuild' track where Smiler "spits" on many of who are known as UKHH's pioneers. He even goes as far to call Mr Hinds "washed up" which fulled him to drop Ether 2010.

Rick Mal - The Rixtape

‘The Rixtape’ has arrived… Mal aka Rick Mal comes with an 18 tracker of pure “laid back funk” for us to sit back and nod our heads to. The Bolton/Manchester based MC is a fine lyricist with clever rhymes and wordplay that will swiftly usher you on to come to this very conclusion yourself.
Mal is also hands on with the production side of things and either produces or had a hand in building eleven of beats of this “Rixtape”, otherwise reaching out to local up and coming peers Dweller (of Simple Samples) and Professor P (Don’t Flop).

Expect the sounds to vary between raw and dusty, laidback, funky, soulful, jazzy and other. Besides two, err ...let’s say "cameos" from North-West’s MC Scrabble (of Simple Samples) and Dweller, Mal steps to all 18 songs without guest any guest appearances. Rather like a lot of artists used to do on their debut projects.

Dear Auntie Beeb,

Don't take away our radio. We need a place - a place to go, where we can play our favourite shows. Don't take away our radio.

When I first heard the word about BBC 6 I thought, "this is absurd, is the BBC sick?" It rocked the airwaves enough to keep me seasick, but it's the first to get sunk - can we believe it? And I thought pirates were meant to be the problem, but obviously not 'cause your lot's already got some. Doctor, doctor, what's your option; what are you going to drop from the roster to cost cut?

The Asian Network plays the best work of a strain of the nation that strains to get heard, and now you're severing the nerves of a massive demographic. It's not a very clever tactic, is it? The last bastions of unsigned action, independents depend on it for traction. Ask Lamacq or Bobby Friction for his reaction - my prediction isn't one of satisfaction. Do the maths, it's a simple subtraction: take away the stations and you chase away the talent.

Listening figures isn't your biggest purpose, it's first and foremost to provide public service. I'm not saying other stations are worthless, but adverts are adverse and make me nervous. We deserve to have a say in what we'd like to see - I mean after all, we pay the licence fee.

Don't take away our favourite shows. Don't take away our radio. Don't take away our favourite shows. Don't take away our radio.

You need to appeal to the people that feel John Peel, and want to keep it real. So please, pretty Beeb, we appeal for a new deal - we'd be pleased if the spiel was repealed. D.B. sees what's needed to escape from the danger zone: more DAB radios in the nation's homes. The audience is there, they just need connecting, in the same way your arrangement needs correcting.

Next thing on the list that's vexing bloody everybody is you spending money like it's never ending. Even a yellow bellied Teletubby could tell us it's crazy, Laa-Laa; Lady Gaga. Pay me half of what you pay to Clarkson - I'll be laughing like I can't keep a straight face, straight up. If there's a budgetary deficit to make up, then wake up and give Big Jeremy a pay cut.

Don't take away our favourite shows. Don't take away our radio. Don't take away our favourite shows. Don't take away our radio.

There's enough talent out here for like forty channels, but we only get to hear the top forty sellers. You're running it like Basil does to Fawlty Towers - literally - ask Andrew Sachs, he could talk for hours about how he was pushed about as Manuel, then Johnny Ross and Russell Brand did it as well. Man, Johnny Rotten wouldn't slag the living Hell out of an old man's grandkid on his cell. Well, if Russell Brand and the six million dollar man are the cream of the crop then you can hang the DJ.

* Radio 1 - sweet for teenagers
* Radio 2 - great if you're really ancient
* Radio 3 - for those of a refined taste
* Radio 4 - all talking and giant brains
* Radio 5 - only sport fans are tuned in
* Radio 6 - it's the music we're losing

Don't take away our radio. We will complain until you know it's a mistake - I'm afraid so. Don't take away our radio.

Guru (from Gang Starr) in coma

Copy & pasted from: www.guardian.co.uk

Rapper Guru is reported to be in a coma after suffering a heart attack yesterday (Sunday 28 February). The 43-year-old is set to undergo surgery today at a hospital in New York.

The rapper's condition was confirmed by DJ Premier, his partner in the seminal hip-hop group Gang Starr, in a phonecall to radio show Hip Hop Nation yesterday. He is reported as ssaying: "Guru is in a coma and will go under surgery tomorrow afternoon."

Guru, born Keith Alam, rose to prominence as an MC in the 80s. Known for his distinctive voice and intelligent rhymes, he released a string of hits with Gang Starr, including Words I Manifest, Just to Get Rep and Full Clip.

The duo were reportedly on indefinite hiatus after 2003 album The Ownerz, with Guru and DJ Premier giving conflicting messages about their future. However, Guru recently hinted on Twitter that he and DJ Premier were set to release new Gang Starr material imminently.

Guru is best known for his work on Jazzmatazz, a hip-hop and jazz fusion project that has yielded four albums and numerous tours. The group's booking agent confirmed that a number of forthcoming Jazzmatazz live dates have now been put on hold
