Rusko "Da Cali Anthem"

No Comments »

Rusko "Da Cali Anthem": Damn, this is the most synth-happiest, dubsteppin'-est cut I've heard in a while. With tracks like this, plus that spastic "Woo Boost" video, you can definitely feel that Rusko is a perfect addition to the Mad Decent camp.

I do kind of wish that 12th Planet had done something like this first, though...

Cam'ron "Sorry"

1 Comment »

Cam'ron "Sorry": I'm not the biggest Cam fan out there, but he has been having a knack for rappin' over interesting samples. Shelly Thunder's "Sorry" is the truth - proper sullen Reggae love tale, and Cam of course throws his gutter flavor over this. For the first day of Spring, this might be the one you wanna wake the neighbors up to.

@Kemizt's "$.homage" was featured on the NXNE Mixtape that I dropped yesterday, and this morning I woke up to his latest mixtape, The Vigil, in my inbox. Homey is from Long Island, is 20 years old, and has an interesting ear for beat selections on this tape. Dude also keeps it thoro - no additives, no preservatives, just pure Hip-Hop. If you dig "$.homage", grab his The Vigil mixtape via

I've actually not been a fan of the Stone Temple Pilots outside of "Plush", which is my motherfucking SHIT, but I just got word on their forthcoming self-titled studio album that's due out in May, so I figured I'd throw the press release up here.

Rihanna "Rude Boy (Ted Smooth Remix)"

No Comments »

Rihanna "Rude Boy (Ted Smooth Remix)": I dropped Emynd's blend yesterday, and Ted Smooth premiered his remix of Rihanna's latest not about 45 minutes ago, and leaked it soon thereafter. Gotta love the power of twitter. Different sound - not a big beat at all, but the piano loop is interesting and works well. It's like Dancehall, minus the big bottom riddim.

Dreader Than Em

1 Comment »

Eminem vs. Soundmurderer & SK-1 "Dreader Than Em (RTD Blend)": Here's something I just did. For some reason, I've known about (and loved) "Dreader Than Dread" for a while, but never remembered which Em song they grabbed his "the looniest, zaniest, spontaneous sporadic" line from. Figured it out at work and affixed "Dread" at the proper time. Might be a nice DJ tool to bridge your Hip-Hop to Jungle mixes? Who knows. Enjoy.

EDIT I also just remembered/forgot to mention that both the Dirty Dozen and the REWIND Records crew were out of Detroit. Hotbed of flavor, that city.

Luke The Dopeness

1 Comment »

A lot of you talk about bringing something different to the game, but who's really doing it? Via Luke: "What's driving Hip-Hop content today? The amount of Patron in your cup? The money in your bank account? Where would the music be without these lyrical weapons? Straying from these worldly topics takes the listener back to the essence of what lyrics aught to be, The Dopeness. Inspired by the film The Wackness, Pennsylvania native Luke O'Brien, the frontman for the Hip-Hop band Luke & John, gives the listener the pure thoughts and observations of a 22 year-old promoting optimism. William Gale, a California producer, provides the soulful instrumentals. Gale can talk about Hip-Hop with knowledge and wit for as long as you'll allow him. Meeting each other in Baltimore, the two created The Dopeness, an album born out of a shared satirical outlook on the present condition of pop music. When they began this project, "club single" was not in their vocabulary; rather thier focus was on real life issues and the expression of self through music. DutchMasters Music presents: The Dopeness by Luke, a welcome splash of honesty in the face of Hip-Hop".

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of March 17, 2010 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

This week's commentary this week focused on a range of things, touching base on topics such as the 2010 U.S. Census, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' wife doing a spin off of the Tea Party & what that means politically and otherwise if anything, the FCC's proposed National Broadband Plan, the completely unsurprising scenario of Tiger Woods coming back to golf for the Masters Tournament, the proliferation of side chicks who now seem to get constant press after cheating with famous or semi-famous man and act like it's all good and some other things here and there.

There are brand new episodes of the Black Agenda Report and Direct EFX segments included in this week's broadcast.

Rihanna "Rude Boy (Emynd's 'Sun God' Blend)": The one like @Emynd always flips some great blends, but I've not been keeping tabs on them for whatever reason. Glad I stumbled upon this one this morning. GREAT flip of Hi-Tek's "Sun God" with RiRi's latest; he even throws Baby Cham's "Rude Boy Pledge" verse on this for added flavor.

Milly July "Higher Groove": It's been damn near a year since I featured Milly on RTD, but in our effort to keep shit super eclectic, here's the lastest track of hers, taken from Welcome To The Soundcheck from the Mania Music Group. Very live feel to this one, sounds like Milly and whatever band she rocks with is right in my living room at RTDHQ. She's got a style that's all her own, and the fact that she can tow that line of ill lyrics and "I'mma do what the fuck I want" in her music is amazing. Very necessary in 2010. Be on the lookout for her next project!

Here's an interesting compilation from Origimoz, AlJazz & Dareenzo. "This project was envisioned to pay tribute to the West Coast musical architects, the style, inspiration and also the musical movement in general. We are all producers of Mozambican heritage (hence the title) that decided to give their own interpretations on how the West Coast influences them musically." These are ill takes on that classic West Coast, G-Funk'd out ryda music. Pick this one up if you need something a lil' different to bump through your speaker box.

Good BIZ Principle & Interest

No Comments »

Last Good BIZ track I hit you with was "Ya'll Can't Ball", off their Checks & Balances EP. That's been done for a bit, and during that time I'd be able to soak in their OTHER EP, Principle & Interest, which is produced entirely by The ARE, who has been putting in 'nuff work. Six tracks of neck-snappin' beats from ARE, as well as a gaggle of true school flavor on the mic. Features include YZ, Illmaculate, Cool Nutz, Al One, DJ Wicked & DJ DMP, and is highly recommended (tracks like "2 Steps Ahead" and "Just A Friend" have been on constant rotation). Don't say we didn't warn you!

GDBZ Music is on a roll, and their debut album, Sound Investment, will be out in the Summer of 2010. In the mean time, grab this EP, or take it back wand cop the Funk Family and Blaque Spurm re-releases, which GDBZ and Ambidextrous Music made available last year. And for fans of The ARE who are down at SXSW, he will be at the Beat Society show on March 20th (I believe Good BIZ's Bobbie Fine will be down there, too).
