Mix Tapes and Band Battles

For all you mix and mash up fiends, check (use numerals!) for a huge catalogue of free mixes for your delight...I'm listening to some Mr Wyse stuff at the moment and need to check out what else is there but judging by titles there looks to be something to satisfy any mood!

Treasure Beckoning Cats update...unfortunately we came in as runners up in the Battle of the Bands down at Bar 41 to some thrash metallers who played the same song over and over for half an hour...a bit unfortunate but as is usual with most vocal related sets the microphones were pretty dodgy so people couldnt hear the lyrics...same old shit as usual! On the plus side though some members of The Anomolies liked our sound so we might be doing some support sets for this space!

Hip Hop Blogs

Just wanted to drop a link to a nice blog linking site where I just saw a nice video about the Rza inventing the serrato scratch format...nice! Looking forward to hearing the new Wu album supposedly dropping soon...

The lack of posts recently is mainly due to a) Training and now practicing as a Teacher for the last 2 years and b) No one reads this! However I was listening to Radio 4 the other day and commenting on how influential the 'blogosphere' can I'm on a wishfull thinking tip! I also feel a need to write and express myself as my other projects (new album, a novel!?) are progressing at a snails pace. My adventures in hip hop seem also to be declining, I did a show at Drop Beats Not Bombs again recently which was OK but unfortunatly only heard by about 8 people! I have been reinvigorated however as one of the emcees in the wicked new band 'Treasure Beckoning Cats', we will be hitting some sort of gig circuit in the near future! It's a strange new world for me but I think it's a good time to direct my energies into something more lively and experimental! Latest recommendations; a heavy London based crew with a deep conscience, a lot to say and raw energy; reminds me a lot of Killa Priest/Sunz of Man type ish, go check it!
