Serato and their Whitelabel.net music label have given a fitting tribute to DJ A-Trak, gifting him the very first run of custom picture disks on their label. The innovative concept has a dual purpose, the Dust La Rock-designed “Mr. A” graphical side plays Say Whoa while the other side serves as a Serato control disk. The disk was based on DJ A-Trak’s album with Nike+, Running Man: Nike+ Original Run which dropped back in late August of 2008. 1,000 promotional disks were pressed.
YO! Franz Ferdinand is dropping their new album Tonight later this month. Download the track No You Girls Never Know below. It's pretty loud, straightforward, well-produced, and somewhat the same as what you’ve become accustom to from Franz.
Franz Ferdinand- No You Girls Never Know
Starting this month i'll be doing an artist spotlight. Showcasing new artists that are doing it right now. Starting up is a man who's been compared to Moodyman aka Kenny Dixon Jr.
If you’re still sleeping on Trus’me, its time to wake up! The man has been called “The most interesting and promising producer in the [UK] right now” by BBC radio’s Giles Peterson and with a mind-blowing catalogue of music released on labels like Prime Numbers (his own), Stilove4music, Fat City and shortly on dance music major Defected, its no surprise why. Trus’me is an amalgam of disco, funk and deep house and in a time when electronic and techy sounds seem to set the trend, Trus’me’s music fills in a much needed soulful void. How soulful is Trus’me? How about an almost entirely analog production studio… Check It! Or how about rumored collaboration projects with Amp Fiddler, Kissy Asplund and Boston’s own King Of Digging, DJ Kon! Now thats SOUL!
here is a LIVE DJ SET recorded by Redbull Music Academy of Trus’me at home in Manchester, UK
check out the video below!!! oh if you in cAPE TOWN pick up the album "Working Nights"at
HI-FIVE: MUSIC & CLOTHING in Kloof Street. Also got in some releases from Prime Numbers.
Good stuff worth checkin out. DON'T SLEEP!

Beat diggers and vinyl addicts don't just buy music; They rescue it from obscurity. Crate digging has always been an integral part of hip-hop culture; producers might spend days in basements and back alley record spots looking for "the perfect beat" with dirty fingers, dust masks, portable turntables.
ENTER - DJ MURO. Born In Tokyo, Japan Shibuya - district. Muro is one of the most important people in Japanese Hip Hop. In his early days he was part of the KRUSH POSSE ran by legendary DJ KRUSH. He later went his own way which proved to have payed off. DJ MURO joined forces with New York's KON & AMIR for the "Kings Of Diggin'' compilation released
by BBE Records. Check out DJ MURO!!!!
Yo! Pick this up when it drops, Feb. 10th. Madlib the Beat Konducta
is one of illest around. The final chapters of his "Beat Konducta" series
pays tribute to DILLA. Need I say more. Check out this write-up
I found on STONES THROW's website.
"When Madlib followed J Dilla’s now-classic Donuts with an instrumental concept-album of his own, a series was born. “Beat Konducta,” the alias he often scribbled on the beat CDs he handed to friends and potential collaborators, left the realm of the unknown and entered the record-buying public’s conscious as Madlib’s latest nom de plume. His unedited CDs often wove quirky narratives, served as obsessive listening material to those lucky enough to hear them, and became raw working material for Madvillain, Jaylib, Ghostface, De La Soul, Talib Kweli and Erykah Badu.
The concept of the Beat Konducta series was simple: put Madlib’s raw beat tapes into album form – one by one on vinyl, with two volumes at a time appearing on sporadically released CDs.
The first two volumes of Beat Konducta, Movie Scenes, were a soundtrack to a movie that existed only in Madlib’s mind. It’s score ranged from Blaxploitation soul to African-psychedelia, from Tropicalia to moody progressive rock. The second installment took its listeners on a tour of Bollywood, circa 1975. Beat Konducta In India paid sincere tribute to musical giants largely unheard of by Western ears. And kept the funk levels up all the way.
Beat Konducta Vol. 5-6: A Tribute to... is a 42-track piece dedicated to the late J Dilla. Madlib and J. Rocc – arguably Dilla’s closest musical compatriots during his time spent in Los Angeles – lovingly remember their friend and reflect on his boundless influence. As was the case with Donuts and in keeping with the Beat Konducta’s all-embracing musical bent, this album does not settle into one groove for too long. The result is a transfixing, sometimes jarring, and always soulful homage to the man Madlib crowned “King Of The Beats.”
SERIOUSLY, FEBRUARY 10TH GO PICK THIS
UP AT YOUR FAVORITE RECORD STORE.
