MUSIC | Jenome – The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP

JENOME – THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF RADIO DOOM EP

The latest offering from Jenome ‘The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP’ is a 4 track EP that Jenome describes as:

“The sewing together of musical history to create sound wormholes within the moment. Built using a combination of space age technology, deleted vibration tools, extreme listening, blindfolded timing, catacomb exploring and various vinyl clusters.”

Jenome is a Producer and DJ based in Liverpool. In 2007 Canteen Records released the track ‘Lost Colours’ on the compilation ‘Welcome to the Canteen’ which featured some of the UK’s finest Hip Hop artists of the last 20 years. Jenome is influenced by Space, Time, Multi Dimensions, Painting, Poetry, Robots, Cats and Music – producing a unique Science Fiction style Boom Bap Hip Hop that is handy for a good bounce or a modicum of pondering on the sofa.

“Jenome samples a lovely mix of dusty old records from ’60s Jazz to Spoken Word, adds his Hip Hop drums and a good measure of space echo to create a sound that makes you want to smoke something!”DJ Format.

The Further Adventures of Radio Doom EP is available via name your price here: jenome.bandcamp.com

MUSIC | The Pharcyde – Bizarre Ride II

I absolutely love this album, an all time favorite with lots of good memories attached to it of a younger more care free existence! I recently had a good dig through my crates and came across Bizarre Ride II (which is nothing new as it has been on constant rotation!) difference was this time I looked at it like I had looked at it 19 years ago (yes 19 years ago…where did that go?!) as I stared deep into the roller coaster, noticing once more the dude falling out on the loop and getting all misty eyed it was then that I realised how much I freakin love and have always loved the album artwork!

So it is only now that I have actually taken the time to look at who did this magnificent piece of artwork, so love and respect goes to Slick K2S/ Fuct for Art Direction, Artwork.

You can check out Slick from K2S Crew, Los Angeles here at www.dissizslix.com and here he is back in the day speakin to Slammin Rap Video Magazine! “No Stencils, no special stencil tips or nuthin, just me and this can!”

Ah roomie zoom zim!

MUSIC | No Fakin

Back in the late 90’s in Liverpool, United Kingdom – ‘two bruthas’ from ‘two dogs’ decided Liverpool was in need of a full on Hip Hop revolution, the venue for this revolution was The Zanzibar on Seel Street, Liverpool – to which was born one of the dopest Hip Hop nights the world has ever seen, that night was the one, the only – No Fakin.

No Fakin played host to the best DJ’s and MC’s Hip Hop has ever produced from Grandmaster Flash, The Souls Of Mischief, Prince Paul, The Beatnuts, L-Fudge, The Nextmen, Kool Herc, Rob Swift, DJ Bias, Mr Complex, Peter Parker, Scratch Perverts, YZ, Swollen Members, Ugly Duckling, Vadim, The Aboriginals, The Pharcyde, Madlib, Jeru The Damaja, Maseo, Jungle Brothers, Funky Fresh Few, El Da Sensei, Scratch Pervertz, All Natural, DJ Noize, Supernatural, DJ Spinna, Peanut Butter Wolf, Lootpack, Mark Rae, Chubby Grooves, DJ Yoda, Rock Steady Crew Breakers to name but a few. The club would be packed out and remains one of the livest atmospheres I have ever witnessed! It would even surprise those who thought they had seen a thing or two who had made the trip over the pond to Liverpool.

The No Fakin DJ’s have recently set up the No Fakin Blog which will tell this amazing story along with there current adventures, releases and anything else dope they find along the way.

Having designed an early No Fakin logo and a few of  their early flyers I will try and scan what I have, when I can, on what I can remember, which will be pretty limited as not until I dug out my old flyers did I see how much No Fakin had spoilt us, I suppose when your younger you take things for granted and it’s not until you start to look back that you realise you were part of something very special.

Still operating today they continue to bring the best of Hip Hop to Liverpool.

The Eygptian Lover – is the one and only Mr Greg Broussard. Above is a little business card I dedicated to Mr Broussard after a friend introduced me to this sublime piece of electro ‘The Lover’ which is utter genius. The Eygptian Lover is from Los Angeles and bases his persona on a Eygptian Pharaoh, other tracks include “Freak-A-Holic” and “Egypt, Egypt”

I think that truly great artists will always live on through their work, so upon hearing this sad news it is with the greatest respect that I write this post in hope that I just may introduce somebody out there who hasn’t already seen or heard of these two great creative minds.

Rammellzee R.I.P – A pioneer and originator in one of the most exciting eras of art and culture.
