Saux... Haux Maux

Big ups to Fresh Daily on the humorous find.

Quasimoto x Kid Robot

I want one of these... seriously.

Kid Robot and Stones Throw have teamed up for the Quasimoto figure, which will be released February 19, 2009. The Quasimoto figure is 8-inches tall, available in equal quantities of yellow and blue, each with a brick and spliff. The hip-hop artist Quasimoto (aka Lord Quas) was created by Madlib. He has released two albums, The Unseen and The Further Adventures of Lord Quas, a collection of singles, and guest appearances on albums by Madvillain and Jaylib. The Quasimoto figure is based on the character drawn by Jeff Jank.

M to the L to the K

Take the time to remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dreams come true...

When you wake up Tuesday morning, open your eyes... change is here... but most of all... remember that CHANGE starts with YOU.

Thank you, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren’t fit to live.
You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be, and one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid.
You refuse to do it because you want to live longer. You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab or shoot or bomb your house. So you refuse to take a stand.
Well, you may go on and live until you are ninety, but you are just as dead at 38 as you would be at ninety.
And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.

You died when you refused to stand up for right.

You died when you refused to stand up for truth.

You died when you refused to stand up for justice.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The homie, DJ Psi-Kick (San Diego) released this self-titled gem around the first half of 2008. This is his first album, with the other half of this duo, DJ KOR-1 (Japan). MemoryStorm is known for their electrifying, as well as improvisational, live sets. DJ KOR-1 hold it down on the MPC, while DJ Psi-Kick kills it with swift and intricate cuts. A melodic gully, slumpin' hip hop composition with a touch of soulful, house experimentation.


Best described as if DJ Shadow and Massive Attack had a child... and if Portishead and DJ Krush had a child... and in the future, those two meet and had a beautiful child. MemoryStorm would be that offspring. i highly recommend this aural treat to hungry ears. Perfect music to vibe out and just get lost into.

A true joint venture of East meets West, San Diego and Japan representing lovely. Check the album video trailer (just below) to see the ending result and a taste of a few tracks. Props to Temple ATS, the most slept-on label in Japan. MemoryStorm straight up kills it!

Don't sleep...

DJ Vinroc - Beat Freaks: Vinstrumentals

Beat Freaks is a hodge podge of production work from the mind of Dj Vinroc. a collection of a simplistic collage of samples reinterpreted through a drum machine, Vinroc's influences and experience can be easily seen as that of a true fan of Hip Hop. A compilation of pre released, unheard, and never released tracks, Beat Freaks is intended for the true beat aficionado who can appreciate the grit, simplicity, and beauty of Hip hop music.
