Misha Freshin #5 this Friday

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

MF4 POSTER

Been doing the graphic design for the Misha Freshin boys and girls since they did their first gig a few months back. Solid night with a clear focus: showcasing the wealth that Ireland’s electronic underground has to offer. Beats and hip hop to beat the band. Delighted to be playing at it myself this Friday so. Don’t get to play this shtyle out too often so gonna be digging deep the next few days! Here’s one from a couple years back:

Redmonk – Snake Eyes by Redmonk on Mixcloud

PLUS, getting to support the one and only Mynameisjohn of Rusangano Family fame. Seen him a good few times now and the man knows how to put on a show, lethal producer and equally lethal selections when he’s DJing. Mix from the man below:

Promises to be a FUNTIMES night. Plus! You also get this 32 piece knife set It’s FREE in, kicks off at 8.

Paul White

Paul White returns to Dublin on Friday. One of the best hip-hop producers of the last few years. Then he goes and changes up the styles on his last album and brought in a load of live instrumentation to create some blissed-out psych and dub-pop. What’s dub-pop I hear you say? I haven’t a clue, go listen to the album though yeah?

I brought him over previously and MANY people on the night said to me it was the best gig they’d seen all year (it was June so it had won over at least 6 months of gigs).

Gonna try and get to both this and the Press Charges launch on the night, stunt doubles out the ying yang mang.

SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION OPPORTUNITY:

Redmonk – Paul White Mix by Redmonk on Mixcloud

Here’s a mix I did for the aforementioned Paul White gig from 2.5 years ago. All his productions from various albums. More on the hip-hop/beats tip than the new stuff. QUITE GOOD. Various people ‘in the know’ at the time probably said:

“This is the best 22-minute mix of some of Paul White’s music, in that exact order, available to stream online, that I have ever heard in my life”

YOU WOULD BE MAD NOT TO LISTEN TO IT.

 

K>O.I~3.2^6 – Tomorrow

Dope selection of instrumental wonky beats here, ‘Let Me Fly’ reminding me of bouncing through the dessert in a dune buggy, sluggin on some fizzy pop as I weave through a herd of camels on stilts. Not that that ever happened, but still.

The Unseen

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Great project on the way from Gus Sutherland. It’s called ‘The Unseen’ a documentary on Detroit hip-hop producers. It features the likes of Dak, House Shoes, Slautah and loads more. Based on his previous documentary outing, ‘All Ears’, which focused on the LA beat scene (Ras G, Kutmah, FlyLo, etc.), this should be deadly (trailer below). Thing is, it ain’t finished yet, so in order for that to happen, we all got to chip in a little bit to help the project along (main cost would be flying a small crew to Detroit for filming). You can get behind the project here on Indiegogo, select an amount you want to donate, then POW! you will get to fund the film and DOUBLE POW! you will get a cool reward. It’s not like Fundit in the sense that it’s lall  or nothing, if the project doesn’t reach it’s total aim, they get to keep what has been raised and have to basically do what they can with it. So dig deep and help the heads in Detroit dig deeper, ye dig? (Ouch!)

Paul White – The Room Below Versions

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Chek it:

Here is a very unusual project: an album of electronic covers of a recent hip hop album: Paul White’s “Rapping With Paul White”. Henry Keen aka The Room Below took inspiration from the original songs, replaying everything on drum machines and synths, and writing interludes of his own to give the record a unique flavour: a heavy analogue electronics rap record with not a sample in sight. We hope you enjoy it!

A massive thank you to Paul White and Mo Kolours for their live set at !Kaboogie a few weeks back. Quick snippet in the video above. One of the best livesets I’ve seen in a good while, and going by the way the crowd was reacting, they were diggin it too. The lads were visibly enjoying their set as they swapped between drums, percussion and buttons, fantastic to see artists so on top of their game killing it in an intimate venue. We got the night recorded so will be throwing their set up on the Audio section of the !kaboogie homepage in the next few days, watch this space! Check out Paul and Mo‘s pages and please support the artists!
