Radio w/ Iwere



This Sunday it was me & Iwere, just easy two hours playing dope tracks.
I loved it.

Iwere always plays such of awesome cuts that I've usually not even heard before. Or it's always something like a rare leopard that I've been hunting for that makes me go "AAGH MUTHAFUKA YOU GOT THIS!!". Like that 1st Down cut that he played, one of the first joints featuring J Dilla, that he bought in '95 when it came out. Goddammit, man! Why wasn't I born earlier... ;D¨

Though I gotta say, that Zagu Brown joint that I played, is EFFIN SICK!! Just wanna listen to it again and again. That Bedouins track too. It effin blew my mind yesterday when I found that tape from one of my cassette boxes at my parents' house. Didn't know I had it, haha!

Tony Da Skitzo is not dead?

Last April I wrote a memorial post of the one-year anniversary of Tony Da Skitzo's death.

Apparently he is not dead.

I first got this knowledge from the Discogs page on Skitzo. Then a Google search lead me to a Myspace site where is a lot of material concenring Skitzo's death, incl. suicide notes.

Usually you hear about rappers' death from around the web instantly and a little later you hear it on songs and read the RIP on album covers. None of that has been going on.

The latest evidence prooving the opposite is apparently Mr. Brady's, who is a friend of Skitzo, comments on a bunch of Skitzo's Youtube videos. Here's his profile and the vids.

Maybe it's a joke or a bad rumor but it pretty much seems that Skitzo is alive. Which is great! Let's just hope that he still makes music too.

...as he does here:

Maxwell: MAXimum WELLbeing (1996)

Debut release by Josh Martinez from 1996/1997, when he was still known as Maxwell. Features Kunga219 (of The Goods), and production by DJ Moves.
[Note: this is a low quality 128kbps mp3 ripped from the original cassette version, for preview purpose only. The EP is available for purchase at camobear or itunes store]

Radio w/ Plankton



This session was with the Anti-Party underground grandmaster, Plankton.

A lot of songs that I've ever played on this show are thanks to two things/people:
Kali Yuga's music "library" & Plankton's mixtapes. His mixtapes are like the guide to the whole genre.

All songs that I played were straight from cassettes, no rips. So you can hear the "click" of play and stop buttons. I think my ripping days are over.

This might just be the best show this far, dj-wise,
starting with my set:
1. DJ Honda - For Every Day That Goes By (f. Rawcotiks)
2. Foreign Legion - Full-time B-Boy
3. Megabusive - Sergaent Shitface
4. Eastside Badstads - Enemy Lines
5. The Grouch - Mr. Invisible
6. Aura - Chameleon Age
7. Tommy V. - Soarin'
8. Radioinactive - Shopping List
9. Mystik Journeymen - Walkman Invaders
10. Eclipse 427 - Pressure Point
11. Gershwin - Can You Hear Me
12. Aura & Randy - Land Of The Shadow
13. Basik - What U Ever Control?
14. Global Phlowtations - Outlooks
15. Emanon - Blind Individuals
16. Jizzm - Goodbye

Plankton's set:
17. Tenshun - Suicide Note In D Minor
18. Megabusive - The Beat
19. Subtitle - Ultrasique
20. Subtitle - Pill Pop
21. Anacron - My Other Pair
22. The Disturbers - Cloudy Day Girl
23. Third Sight - Hostage
24. Adura - Adura
25. Axeom - Vibrations
26. Kennuf Akbar - (untitled of album Prelude)
27. Tony Da Skitzo - Man On
28. Anti-Party People - (untitled unreleased)
29. P.E.A.C.E. & Pijall - (freestyle '98)*
30. Anti-Party People - Fuck Up The Sound

*The story behind this song goes roughly this way:
Roopek (back then known as Esaar), Pijall and Plankton were in the Bay in '98 (just when Ceebrolistics "Dayofthepeopleinbetween" album had come out), and they recorded six hours of freestyles over Roope's beats with various local emcees. I think they were at Ab Rude's house and people kept coming and going and grabbing the mic. Like, the whole time people came over like "oh you guys are recording? Cool, can I rap some?"
