RE:LIVE – Shambhala Music Festival – Mr. Scruff [Living Room set]

RE:LIVE Shambhala Music Festival continues with a seamless, genius genre-hopping four hour mix by none other than Manchester, UK’s, Mr. Scruff. Recorded live on The Living Room Stage at Shambhala on Saturday August 9th, 2014. During this set, I was preoccupied with filming and watching the Hip Hop showcase over at The Village stage, but thankfully Scruff recorded his mix so we could revisit its glory all over again.

Outright Cypher – The Film

Here’s a unique and detailed mini-documentary about the freestyle cypher sessions (Outright Cypher aka ORC) that have been occuring in Victoria, BC every week for the past 6+ years. I have been lucky enough to know many of the people featured in this film during my brief stint as the host for the Battle Of The Bridge rap battles in Victoria which many of these same freestyle dudes also participated in. Props to Alex Miller for taking the time and his resources to put this feature together.

(Film Bio) – A documentation of OUTRIGHT CYPHER, a six year old weekly meeting of MC’s, beatboxers, producers and hip hop enthusiasts that occurs every Wednesday in Victoria BC. This film examines the impact Outright has had on some of those who attended over the 6+ years it has been alive.

For more info, email Alex at aex.imagery@gmail.com, or just go to the end of North Park road on Wednesday, 7pm. Camera and Sound by Alex Miller, Darryl LeCraw and Dyland Newstead.

Song produced by Seth Bibbs and video directed by Teus @illuminatedpictures.

Photo c/o Asher Jones Photography

Photos and review of the Cam’ron show that took place at Venue Nightclub on Aug. 23rd are now up and the entire picture set can be viewed HERE..

“Last week Vancouver was a buzz regarding the fact that the Diplomats general and Hip Hop icon from Harlem World, USA, Cam’ron would be rolling through our city to perform for his first time ever. In the weeks leading up the show, which was presented by BlueprintLIVE, I heard a wide array of conversations about Cam’s anticipated appearance in Van City. Conversations ranging from those who were die-hard Cam fans and were beyond excited to finally get to see one of their Top-5 rappers get busy in person, to those who….”

FATTIKUS ( Fatty Down & Attikus) – Breaking Bread (Video)

Brand spanking new video by the homies FATTIKUS (Fatty Down and Attikus), “Breaking Bread”! Awesome, positive vibes on this joint and an uplifting, happy set of visuals to accompany the song. Below is a bit of inside info on the video from Attikus himself.. Enjoy!

Fatty Down and I just dropped a new video for our track “Breaking Bread”. It was produced by our good friend Jordan “Illikon” Robinson who sadly passed away in a car accident last summer. This was one of his last beats. This video is dedicated to his legacy. It’s a track about making the most with your family and friends and appreciating where we have come from. It was shot on a sunny West Coast July afternoon at Hume Park in New Westminster just outside Vancouver, BC, Canada. It features over 70 of our favourite people. ~ Attikus

THUMP presents: Electric Forces [America's Vets and The Healing Power of Festival Culture]

I found this very cool and intriguing. I myself have been curious if there’s a deeper more profound reason as to why we attend such music festival gatherings as Shambhala etc.. I’ve even been asking those I come in contact with at these festivals if there’s a greater good for humanity by attending these collectied gatherings and the reactions I’ve been getting have been profound and enlightening to say the least (our own video coming soon).

THUMP, VICE’s electronic music channel, recently highlighted the transformative impact that electronic music festivals have on U.S. war veterans and festival-goers in their latest video. THUMP teamed up with Electric Forest (an electronic festival in Michigan) and talked to a group of US veterans and electronic music lovers to celebrate the magic that can happen when people get together to dance. This video captures the debut of the Electric Forces program: a service and culture program aimed at highlighting and perpetuating the healing power of music.

RE:LIVE – Shambhala Music Festival – Stickybuds [Fractal Forest set]

RE:LIVE festival season continues with Stickybuds dropping his set from this years Shambhala Music Fest. I was present for this set, which took place at the Fractal Forest stage (where Sticky always throws down his annual mix) and as always, I had a blast rockin’ out to all of the dope and funky mixes the homie threw together. Below I’ve included the stream to the set and a few choice words from Mr. Buds himself…    

“This years Shambhala Music Festival was my 10th year playing in the Fractal Forest. It was a blast, and I thank the thousands of people who came out to party with all of us. As always, I tried to weave together the most interesting and fun set I could with exclusive tunes and acapellas provided by my talented friends from around the globe. I hope the set gives you hours of listening enjoyment. Big love, and thanks always for the support!”

Slaine – Bobby Be Real ft. Tech N9ne & Madchild (Video)

New video from Boston’s Slaine – “Bobby Be Real” featuring Tech N9ne and Madchild. Taken from Slaine’s recently released album “The King of Everything Else” (out now on iTunes). I’m loving the upbeat, yet dark circus swing feel of this song and each rapper compliments the beat well imo..

Tech N9ne will be live in Vancouver at the Commodore Ballroom on Sept. 11th. For tickets, visit: ticketmaster.ca/Tech-N9ne
