As noted in the last post, epidemic this episode was delayed because the earthquake that hit just off the coast of Taiwan not only put several cracks in my apartment wall, tablets but knocked out Southern China’s internet for a couple weeks. Sorry and shit, gynecologist on with the show.

J Blow – Cali Jam 3 w/ Busy Bee. J hit me up with this on my request – the beat was just that nice. allupinyourearhole.com.

C Monts and Jonny Simps – Inner Mind’s Eye (remix). I somehow fucked around and lost the email that this came with – I’ll have an update on the artist’s site later.

Sway – Little Derek feat Baby Blue. Sad to say, I slept on this – as in was totally unaware of its existence until Suburb put me up on it. The joint is ridiculous catchy, and this Baby Blue chick rips it up as well. I know it’s more than a few UK listeners on this site – how is Sway being received in the streets over there? Hit up the comments, I’m genuinely curious. In the meantime, I definitely recommend hitting dude’s site and copping the full album. swaydasafo.com.

Che Grand – Work Flow (The Beatmaker Clock Out Remix). About time for Che to make a reappearance on the show. I think the original of this joint passed me by, but the remix really has that soul to it. Shouts to Che – when’s that next album out man? loudminoritymusic.com.

JR – All Behind Me. Off the Sessions 2 album. I’ve said enough about JR here, so I’ll keep quiet on that, other than to say that this new album is definitely worth picking up. shamanwork.com.

Johnson&Jonson – Wow!. On the exclusive tip from my man Jon at Sound in Color, this is a side project from Mixtape Show veteran Blu. Pretty much the whole album is Blu ripping up funky-ass samples like this. I haven’t had a chance to really sit down with the whole thing, but I can say that it is ridiculous. No idea when/if this thing’s coming out officially, but it’s hot. soundincolor.com.

JR – Grandz. See above. Dig the sample on this one.

Akir – Again (unofficial remix featuring John Legend). Akir hit me with like 4 new exclusives two days ago – expect to hear all or most of them very soon. I like how Akir is switching up the flow on this joint. Again, if you haven’t caught dude’s album yet, you need to. myspace.com/akir.

(outro – James Brown – Give It Up or Turn It Loose). Rest in Peace.

Run DMC – Christmas in Hollis (DJ Slice Remix). I couldn’t help it. Shouts to DJ Slice and CYN for getting at me with this one.

There it is – hopefully I move out of this building before it collapses. Hit up the comments section and let me know what you thought about this one!

  1. Great ep, good to hear you werent swallowed into the earth due to the earthquake. Post the link for that second track, that shit is tight.

  2. Alex –

    Good looking out on the update – the connection out here is so fucked I can’t even access myspace. All I can really remember is that dude hit me with a message that said, more or less – “I like the show. Here is a song. If you like it, play it. If not, don’t”.

    Protip: Brief email with attached mp3 = higher chance of getting aired on the show.

  3. hey!
    mad props for playing my tune!
    i didn’t even email it to you, first thing i heard of it was someone from Cali sounding me out on myspace, really encouraged by the feedback!
    stay tuned for JonnySimps and Brotherman.


  4. Jonny –

    damn, if you didn’t send that to me, who did? Anyway, nice track, and welcome to the community and shit. If you got anything else you want to hit me with, email is kucrdex [at] gmail [dot] com.

  5. Yesh..i was the one who mailed in the track…big up Jonny Simps, Silent Soundz, Idle Minds Records and of course mixtapeshowdot.net

  6. A massive big up to C.Monts! Loving his sickening flows. Your guna be huge in 2007! Keep it real! T x

  7. I’ve been listenin’ to the show for about a year now, never left any comentary. I must say it’s DOPE. I’ve recomended it to every hiphop head i know. It’s really hard to get your hands on some of the stuff you have. I’ve never really felt UK hiphop to be honest but this “minds eye” joint has been stuck in my head since i heard it. Props Johnny. The 1st soultronica ep was bananas, now i’m waiting for 2. Get to it.

  10. Thought I already left this comment…anyway Dex, this show gave me the idea of you doing an ALL FOREIGN show…no US hip hop…anyway I may have left this comment already on another show and just can’t find it, but anyway, think it’d be a cool concept.

    Love, Peace, and Chicken Grease
