Good day world,
our soul brother, the unique poet AZEEM is back with a new short movie. After GOD´S ROLEX him and production entity CEDAR Image (Original Content NYC) will soon release POSTERA. A movie about Hip Hop and Poetry in a crazy world. A world with systems that lie to their citizens and make victims out of the innocent.
The trailer and movie contains music from our new project BAND OF BROKEN PUPPETS that we worked on with AZEEM for the last 2 years. The album will be released by the end of this year on MELTING POT MUSIC.
STAY STRONG !!!
Some years ago we released a couple of mashup vinyl 12inches on Foot Forward Music under the moniker The Beatstalkers. These dancefloor friendly tunes mixed solid Hip Hop with Funk and Reggae. The “Pyramid Funk & Dynamite Reggae” series Vol. 1 and 2 sold out within weeks and the third vinyl in that series was our “Modern Stalking EP” which included 3 heavy tunes.
Do the names Beastie Boys, David Axelrod or Large Pro (of legendary Hip Hop crew Main Source) ring a bell for you? But you still haven´t heard about that release? Well, here´s your chance. You can get the last available vinyl copies (including digital download) or just the digital download in the Switchstance Recordings Bandcamp store:
here is a new song from us that was just released on Cold Busted Records from Los Angeles. Enjoy the music and don´t forget to turn it up loud !!!
Hello sisters & brothers,
our good friend and collegue DJ Brace (the canadian nice guy that did all the scratches and cuts on our Into Bass And Time album) and his fellow dj partner in crime DJ Vekked just won 2nd place in the DMC and IDA World DJ Championships. Yes they are not vice president of just one country, no, they are vice world champions. BOOYAKA !!!
We are very proud of these guys and are actually a little sad they didn´t win this. Cause they deserved it. Here you can watch and hear their dj set at the IDA World DJ Championships:
DJ Jazzy Jeff, yeah the dude from Prince Of Bell Air and DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, has never really been gone. But still it became more quite about him due to the fact that the hooray days of quality Hip Hop are over and the mass media just talks about the Bling Bling PR Hip Hop and not the good stuff. DJ Jazzy Jeff doesn´t care and helps with productions for young, talented artists. Here´s a new tune called “Fellow” by Dayne Jordan, produced by DJ Jazzy Jeff:

Check this dj mix by Kabanjak giving you some Downtempo dopeness with grooves that are so deep and heavy your speakers gonna sound new again. This is so anti pop that it feels like fresh air. Ya thought Hip Hop was dead? Hip Hop was always there, but these days of internet overflow make it harder and harder to find the good stuff. The real quality stuff. This mix has that feel of early 2000 Ninja Tune instrumental grooves with heavy head nod beats. Timeless? Hellyeah !!
Dear fellow Beatheadz,
in our archives we re-discovered an older song that was meant to be the title track of our debut album “We Are To Answer” on ESL Music. But as much as we loved this tune we had too many to choose from so at the end this song didn´t make the final track list. A lot has happened between then and now and somehow the song “We Are To Answer” got lost in the depth of Kabanjak´s Evergreen Studio. As the years went by this song was sleeping hidden between different sound ideas and songs. But some weeks ago we found it again and were stoked to hear what we forgot about over the past years. “We Are To Answer” has that unique feeling of our debut album. It is a timeless piece where a beautiful melody unites with a dope beat and a warm bass. That´s why it was obvious to share this with you, our followers and supporters. Place yourself comfortably, turn your sound system up loud and enjoy this piece of music. And yes, it is totally FREE. So feel free to share this with your family, friends, colleagues and sound enthusiasts:
