Daniel Joseph At Fat Beats NYC (2/26/2010)

No, the above picture is NOT from the Fat Beats showcase, but I'm ecstatic over sorting out Blogger's "Jump" coding, which was NOT working on this template for wack reasons. Anyways, the High Water crew was in full force at Fat Beats NYC the other day, and @DanielJoseph went through a number of his tracks. Check out his verse for DJ Spinna's "Summer Madness", as well as a couple more flicks from Ka5p after the jump...

DJ SOLO - Fucking & Punching

The one like DJ SOLO just sent over his latest dubstep mix, chock full of "dubstep madness with beat juggling, scratching, and hip-hop/party rock style mixing, as well as different genres that influence me personally, as well as the current state of dubstep, like rock, metal, and hip-hop, all mixed in with some original DJ SOLO bootlegs and remixes". Based off the last mix of his I posted, you need to peep this one out...

Latarian Milton On Tosh.0

I'm fucking up over here; I've not done much in the way of Black History Month posts this year. Nor have I ever watched Tosh.0. Why not merk two pigeons with one post by hitting you guys with a double-dose of Tari Smalls on Tosh.0. I know @EnigmatikBGDB would be proud. More after the jump.

Estelle ft. Kardinal Offishall "Freak"

Estelle ft. Kardinal Offishall "Freak" (prod. by David Guetta): Damn. I mess with this, can't help it. I can see the ladies winding their waists when that funky bassline drops. Kind of a departure for the Estelle people initially got introduced to, but I'm far from mad. The UK is such a hybrid country, sonically, its a given that their artists will dip into different vibes. I don't know if her album will be sounding like this front to back, but I definitely fuck with this one. Sounds like Caspa needs to flip this one...

The Boondocks SE3 Returns May 2nd

I remember hearing that The Boondocks was supposed to return for Season 3 sometime in March, but I just got a press release stating the following, which mirrored Aaron McGruder's tweet:

The Boondocks, the award-winning animated Adult Swim series based on Aaron McGruder’s comic strip by the same name, returns this spring for its third season. After taking a two year hiatus, creative and executive producer McGruder announced on his twitterfeed (@aaronmcgruder) that the third season premiere of The Boondocks will air on Sunday, May 2nd at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim. The series, produced by Rebel Base in association with Sony Pictures Television, includes the vocal talents of Regina King ("Southland") as Huey and Riley Freeman; John Witherspoon ("Friday After Next") as Granddad; Gary Anthony Williams ("Boston Legal") as Uncle Ruckus; Cedric Yarbrough ("Reno 911") as Tom Dubois; Jill Talley ("American Dad") as Sarah; and Gabby Soleil ("Johnson Family vacation") as Jazmine.

The show will return to the small screen continuing to provide the touchy, and oftentimes controversial, humor and situations for which the show has become infamous for. The third season will cover various topics that range from politics and mainstream media, to social norms and pop culture.

Can't wait. Got a project from a few niggas that should mirror a project one of these niggas did for RTD. Shouts to Alice at Cashmere. And follow @BoondocksBTLG.

Ironlak Presents Counter Strike – The Unkut Dot Com Mixtape

Unkut's six years old, and to celebrate that landmark, has dropped a SICK mixtape that's hosted by the legend DJ Doo Wop. Loads of exclusives and just GOOD HIP-HOP to be found on here. I've found a lot of quality classic material from Robbie's spot, and I'm happy he's stuck around and made Unkut.com as ill of a spot it is. Congrats!

Al Mighty "Death Is Calling"

photo by Snapkracker

Al Mighty
"Death Is Calling" (prod. by DistantStarr): Last year, MAGr's No News Is Good News caused quite a stir, as this NJ duo showcased their talents on the mic and the boards. From that release (which RTD put out with the good folk at Public Axis), I got the opportunity to release Al Mighty's Agony Of Deceit, which will be dropping on RTD Records in the near future. This cut is deeply introspective, and finds DistantStarr flippin' a crazy hypnotic beat for Al to expound upon. I imagine many of us have mirrored his thoughts in this track, and should try to figure out how to overcome those feelings. Life is hard... gotta get through it.

Keep it locked for more information on Agony of Deceit when it becomes available.

Noisia "Machine Gun (16bit Remix)"

Noisia "Machine Gun (16bit Remix)": This cut is taken from the forthcoming "Machine Gun" single that Noisia is putting out, prior to the release of Split The Atom. The reason for me throwing this one out there stems from what a likkle birdy told me INRE 16bit fucking over some New Zealand promoters they booked tour dates with. Apparently they didn't show up for last night's gig, nor tonight's and now their dates are being refunded. Damn shame - seems like their stock is rising within the scene and all they can do is rockstar it out? And apparently they did this here in America as well? Bad move, bredren.

EDIT Hmm: "to eryone in NZ we're very sorry tht yu bcum casualties, sometimes yu gotta fight th sharks. we be bk propa, once we got rid o these #backbitingbumbaclarts".... well alright. The plot thickens?

STS "In For The Kill"

STS "In For The Kill" (prod. by MPIII): We got to hear STS speak on this track the other day, and now the tune has been leaked out to the public. This La Roux-sampling banger (you can hear the original during those Bayonetta commercials) explains what STS does with his movement. Demand More 2 is dropping in March 2010 - should be a sick one!

Big S.I.N. "Too Late"

Big S.I.N. "Too Late" (prod. by Jinx Beats): First off, must I say, best cover ever! I imagine the title, Intercontinental Champ, stems from the contacts S.I.N. has made overseas. Lots of international beatmakers fuck with dude, and this track is a message to those out there who hate, but wanna pop up after you've made it. This is a lesson a lot of you sometime niggas need to learn...

This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of February 24, 2010 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.

This week's commentary this week focused on a whole range of things, from how folks feel about the need and relevancy of a "Black Agenda" in U.S. politics (especially in the eyes of some, with a man of Black descent in office), the latest situation in Australia with the treatment of the Aborigines, how quality R&B represented in the recent Billboard charts with Sade & Jaheim's sales numbers and some other things here and there.

During this week's show, we had a great interview with one of Hip-Hop's dope long lasting MCs, Philadelphia's own Freeway (http://www.myspace.com/Freeway & http://www.FreewayAtLast.com).

Some of the topics we've touched base during the interview included Freeway's musical & environmental influences, the influence of Islam in his spiritual & physical life, what creatively sparks Freeway in making music & those to work with, how he built with producer Jake One and come up with The Stimulus Package LP (in all stores now), advice about the music industry and lots more!

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

Feel free to check out some recent episodes of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast over at our official blog, BlackRadioIsBack.com - all of the shows are clean/radio friendly.
