MI 30-03-09 w/ C.O.L.D. Ravage and Kosyne, BCD and The Unseen

Sorry for the lack of updates, life stuff gets in the way sometimes

Main Ingredient Radio Show

New Style Radio 98.7FM
Mon 12-2am,
W/ C.O.L.D, Ravage and Kosyne

C.O.L.D. were live in the studio and got Ravage on too, one of those weird moments when I realised I'd never properly met Ravage before even though I'd been aware of him since MSI & Asylum were featured in Downlow magazine (yeah anyone remember that?) back when I was a kid! (I'm thinking it's about 15 years which makes it extra crazy).

Kosyne dropped in at the end of the show to talk briefly about the new Louis Den "Behind Closed Doors" DVD / CD which is out now and can be ordered from here. It's over an hour long and features Eyebs, Darren Paul, Last Skeptik, S-Type, Jaisu, Ed Strong, Kelakovski etc and comes with a beat CD mixed by yours truly...a snip at £10 (+p&p) for both. Launch night on Thursday 16th April @ THE SUNFLOWER LOUNGE (PLEASE NOTE NEW VENUE!) but more on that closer to the time. Heres the teaser tailer and a new Jaisu beat vid

This Thursday is The Unseen at the Bulls Head again, PA's from The Custodians (they'll be on the next radio show too), Clarity and Justice
, heres the info hopefully see you there...

Have a great week


ps Charles Hamilton is a complete wasteman, check Fresh Selects for the scoop, unfortunately it took this for me to find out about the blog but Kenny has some great music up don't sleep!

Radio Trip (Schoolmaster and Mixmonster from The Apples) are our guests at Funkbox this Thursday 19th March at the Hare and Hounds, Kings Heath. Heres a video to an unreleased track they made
and the trippy Suzi

FUNKBOX present the Birmingham debut of RADIO TRIP, the brain child and (side) project of the funkiest band ever from Tel Aviv. Schoolmaster and Mixmonster are founding members of the all conquering live phenomenon that is THE APPLES. They approach this project with a different angle, they cut and paste samples, in a true old school style, to create beautiful pieces of music, from Hip-hop through to blues.

They have agreed to come and play some choice records, don't just expect funk and hip-hop, think outside the box with B-Boy styled Turkish rock, Israeli party gems, psyche monsters and all the right things to make your feet wiggle and move!!

This night will celebrate the release of their first EP and the pre release of the album proper through Jalapeno; and will surely be a journey into vinyl culture.

Just a few quid in...

Thursday 19th March 2009

Bonus addition new Diamond (D) video for Bad/Good, didn't think I'd even like the song as I've not really been into any of his new material...

Kurious Back with V.I.C. and Doom

New Kurious "Back with V.I.C." from the forthcoming II album on Amalgam Digital in May

and some footage with MF Doom who's new album "Born Like This" is finally out at the start of April (just heard a terrible Thom Yorke remix too, not good). Looks like they're shooting a video for the track which also features MC Serch, should be dope!

Wu ooh

This gives me a little bit of hope the Cuban Linx 2 may actually see the light of day and so far I've liked what I've heard (although he shouldn't be making part 2's to classic tracks). I'm wondering if Baggage Handlers wil make it on there too...

Behind the scenes of Raekwon video shoot

Turns out Heltah Skeltah had been on Live 5 a few years before with Buckshot so enjoy some more inspired bars
