NEW VIDEO : SUMMER JAM 2014

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Here’s the new video promo from the first all day Summer Jam we threw back on the 12th of July with our friends from Bakery, City Surf and Spit & Sawdust skate park.

As a rule we tend to stay away from mixing political concerns with music too much. But we were recently invited by our new friends at Bakery to help them throw a fundraiser for a pretty unique kind of charity. www.skatepal.co.uk.

And it a hard one to say no to. Offering kids, living in what is undeniably a war zone, a positive outlet and welcome distraction from the hardships of daily life there. And escape is all what we all need is it not? Those moments of simple fun and pleasure that make life worth living. So we said HELL YES. And the result was a great day from start to finish. So big love to all who came down to have a good time.

We’ve had it on a promise that the actual skate edit from the day shot by the Bakery boys will be out pretty shortly too. So all the skate heads should keep an eye for that one. We’ll probably have it up on here so check back.

Ahead of the release of his new 7″ Booda French takes his turn to step up to the plate and air out Ed Boogie’s remake of the classic Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ beat. After making his name as one of the front runners on the battle scene under his former moniker ‘Truth’, he’s gone on to gain a strong following with his signature drawn out slurring, collaborating with the likes of Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea as well as just returning from a tour of UK & Europe.

Now set to release his new 7″ on 250 piece turquoise coloured vinyl. Produced by friend and long term collaborator, J57, of the much heralded Brooklyn crew, Brown Bag All Stars it’ll be distributed by the legendary Fat Beats worldwide.

THE M.S.G. MIXTAPE

After Metabeats & Ed Boogie’s ‘Caviar Crackle Intro’ appeared on the the new M.S.G. Skate Edit from our homie Huw Caddy, it was only right that we finally got a collaboration going with the good people over at City Surf to make ‘The M.S.G. Mix’ special. And the result we’re proud of.

NEW VIDEO: BEATBOX FOZZY & ALEM ‘JUST MET’

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

There’s something incredibly infectious about watching a person who loves their chosen art and craft, practise it in front of you. Well these two are ninjas. Ninjas that love what they do. And the result is that despite having literally just met by a pretty strange twist of fate, Fozzy’s basslines and groove combine with Alem’s incredible patterns and sharpness almost so naturally, that at times it almost looks rehearsed. Watch them at play…

NEW VIDEO: Sonnyjim ‘The Classics Series’ – Pt.3

Download Sonny’s ‘Classics Series’ here

We’re fussy who we hang with. Always have been. We don’t beg friends and you won’t find us ‘networking’ for the sake of it. We care about those who are about their craft and have a personality to match it. We hunt out those special folk like prey. And Sonnyjim has both of those in abundance. So it was only right when we were looking to do the latest in our ‘Classics Series’, that we reached out to our extended fam to bring his own style to the plate.
