Nightmare on Edward Street

Nightmare on Edward St is going down this weekend in the capital and sees two heavyweights in action in the form of Dizz1 (Aus) & Bulletproof (AK).
Dizz1 makes his debut in NZ bringing his blend of future beats which has seen him work with the likes of Mark Pritchard & O'mas Keith of Sa-Ra. And for those on more of the DnB tip Bulletproof will definately have you locked after releasing his sophmore album and causing a stir amongst the internation scene. Add some of Wellingtons finest DJ talent in the form of the Fredericks Crew, Ol'Dip, EX.d & Flava DJ's (thats us jusss!) oh and Machs yo.
AND apparently theres a mad monster which lights up for all you dangeons & dragons fanatics.

The Inside Word

So I thought I'd share some good news I found out today...
Real Groovy Wellington just managed to cop 9000 (yes, nine with three zero's at the end) 12inches. All singles, no LP's. Seen some of the pics todays and DANG that shits got my jaw to the floor. Motown, Stax, TK disco joints, all sorts of mad shit that I'm keen to pillage.
Looking to have a special night for club members and/or DJ's to come have a dig through (hopefully a few days after I've had a chance to get my wicked wing eatin digits in there).

You Can Call Me Your Majesteez

Also, Im quite amped at this turning up in 6-10 Days courtesy of the fine folks at Stones Throw.
The postage actually cost more than the tee, but meh still cheaper than most of the ridicously priced tees round here anyways.

R.I.P. Mr Magic (1956-2009)

It seems death is working overtime at the moment as another pioneer to hiphop is lost. Mr Magic first debuted way back in '83 with the first exclusive rap radio show to be aired on a major station, "Rap Attack". He was partnered in crime with Marley Marl & Fly Ty and together they helped influence a whole generation of hiphop listeners. Props to oldschoolhiphoptapes for the links to some of his radio shows and Omega B for the heads up.
