DWG006 - TDS MOB - 'THE DOPE COMMITTEE E.P.' (sticker sleeve / limited to 350 copies)

Containing 3 previously unreleased TDS Mob tracks, together with instrumentals, taken from the original reels, baked and re-mastered for optimum audio quality.

Previously Unreleased Ltd Press

DWG007 - TDS MOB - 'THE BOSTON CLASSICS E.P.' (picture cover / general release)

Four previously released golden era nuggets from Boston's finest, TDS Mob... taken from the original reels, baked and remastered for optimum audio quality. As if that isn't enough, we've thrown in some audio intros from recently-discovered live footage of the crew and also knocked up our first picture sleeve in a instantly-recognisable TDS style. Throw in the previously unreleased acappellas for 'Dope for the Folks' and 'Crushin Em' and you've got a great slab of wax at a very affordable price.

As it says an EP of Classics!

DWGCD002 - TDS MOB - 'TREACHEROUS, DEVASTATING, SUPREME' (CD+DVD anthology / general release)

We've faced some pretty heavy criticism from the MP3 generation over the years for our high priced vinyl releases so now it's time to put up or shut up as, for the first time, we will be making a DWG release available in digital format in this incredible package. The CD features all 7 studio recorded TDS cuts in their remastered glory, but that's just for starters. We were given full access to Mark Cohen's extensive stash of TDS paraphernalia and we unearthed some real gems for you. For starters we have both videos from the "What's This World..." 12" which have pretty much remained unseen until now (other than a few local Boston airings back in the day). On top of that we also have the live video footage from two TDS shows in all its lo-fi glory, plus a great selection of vintage TDS press shots and concert flyers. We round the package off with full multi-track acapellas for 6 of the 7 TDS tracks for your remixing pleasure.

Cappo & Anti-Pop Consortium Live in Notts

Cappo couldn't make the show Monday due to illness but we'll be getting it rescheduled asap. If your in or near Notts tonight he's over the illness and supporting Anti-Pop Consortium @ Stealth, performing Genghis in full. Grab your tickets here.
The album officially dropped yesterday but
you'd best be quick if you want the wax, there's under 10 copies left. If you haven't checked it out yet, my prediction is it'll be album of the year along with Roc Marciano's Marcberg, lets see if I'm right! Here's the swanky USB which if I'm not mistaken has footage from when Cappo was recently on the my radio show with Endemic

Behind Closed Doors 2 Production DVD OUT NOW

Ltd BCD2 Box Set
Neatly wrapped but whats inside?

T-Shirt, DVD & Beat CD
Poster, postcards and stickers

BCD2 is OUT NOW! Be quick if you want to buy one of the limited boxes pictured above as theres not many left. I'm not going to spoil our viewing experience but my personal feeling is they (Kosyne and AB0181) have improved on the first issue dramatically, from the features and editing to the pace and content. If your into beats, you need to see it. Here's the two trailers to make you get your MPC, SP, PC, Mac or pots and pans of choice out and don't sleep! It features some of the dopest UK and European producers and comes with a beat cd with beats from all the featured producers and with the DVD clocking in at over 80 minutes it's highly recommended and value for money.

Crosyne Live @ Home Cookin', The Yardbird, B'ham

New York was incredible but that's a separate post, radio back to usual Monday with Cappo & Styly Cee launching the mighty Genghis album live in the s, if you haven't already go grab one now as it may have sold out by it's official release on Tuesday!

I'm Djing with Kosyne on a hosting tip @ Home Cookin' this Friday (2nd April) 8pm-2am with Mr Muz and Feva, always have a great night there so don't miss it!
