I got to break it down with the homie J Rocc from The Beat Junkies.



This guy named Sweet G I dont know if you know the [cla**ic 1983 electro] song Al-Naafiysh? This guy used to get that intro andhe used to bend the record almost like a taco and just scratch and just cut it up! That was his gimmick. And he was really dope. He was my Q-Bert. He was the Q-Bert from my generation. He was killer. Hed do that scratch and people would go crazy."

‎"I never sleep/cos sleep is the cousin of death".

Yesterday marked the 17th Anniversary of Illmatic (19.04.1994)

I believe that warrants a post.

General Discussion / SA Music Mags
« on: January 31, 2011, 03:33:35 PM »
Need some help peeps.

Got a doozy of a story I'm trying to sell. It involves the 10 year anniversary of an SA electronica label.

It's not quite right for Hype mag, and although I've offered it to the M&G they haven't bitten yet.

What other music mags in SA exist that might be able to a carry a decent, full-length feature story? And pay for it? My initial thoughts are BPM, One Small Seed...no, that's about it. Any thoughts?

I drunk a whole bottle of vodka last night. I do that every night, Term says, seemingly apropros of nothing.

Youre livers going to be hurting soon! cracks Jo, the shows promoter, sitting opposite him.

I know, says Term slightly wistfully. I gotta stop, for real. Im starting to feel the effects lately. But you see, Im good. A lot of people would be throwing up their guts right now. I drink so much its like, whatever. I think Im going to put myself in rehabilitation for real. I think its about that time. Maybe around January. I fiend for it. Alcoholism runs very deep in family; its destroyed half of my family. I didnt realise that. My mother kept telling me that like, serious, serious. Now that Im starting to see, Im like, Im kind of destroying myself.

Producers - Discussion / No separates!
« on: November 22, 2010, 11:49:18 AM »
Let's say you're making a rap tune. Let's say your producer used a single sample, slowed down and manipulated, for the beat. That's it - no drums, no ba**, no extra bits. Just this sample. It's really cool though.

You need to sit the vocals on the beat, which is on a single audio track.

Any tips or thoughts on how to proceed? How does one sit the vocal?

General Discussion / Rob One's Jean Grae/Pharoahe Monch interview
« on: November 05, 2010, 02:24:28 PM »


"A few blocks up is a nondescript hotel apartment complex, perched on Bayswater Road like a sitting dog. Monch (born Troy Jamerson) is in one of its anonymous rooms on the third floor. Opposite him at the table is Jean Grae (born Tsidi Ibrahim), his tour buddy and increasingly frequent collaborator. Its a music clich to say that an artist looks tired, but both Monch and Jean Grae do. Scratch that: they look exhausted. A huge show at Londons Jazz Caf the night before and an entire afternoon of video, radio and press interviews has left the duo pretty zonked."

Sports Arena / The 2010/2011 NBA Thread
« on: October 07, 2010, 10:03:47 AM »
NBA Preseason is open. Flags stuck in the ground already. Who you got? Who's your pick, based on what you've seen so far?

My Bulls fell to Milwaukee, D-Wade off with an injury, Bosh and James do OK.
