Scientific Consensus and Arguments from Authority

This is a great video talking about scientific consensus and arguments from authority.  In this day and age where anyone can write about anything they choose and make themselves come across as an authority to the masses, without any real credentials or evidence to back their claims up I think videos like the one below are more important than ever.  Same same can be said for the importance of actually reading scientific peer reviewed articles especially when they’re cited in blogs and papers.Continue reading

Vinyl Digging VS E-Digging

There appears to be a debate over vinyl digging VS e-digging in this day and age.

For those that aren’t Hip Hop producers or producers in general ‘digging’ basically means finding records to sample to make your own beats as the majority of Hip Hop is based on sampling other records.  ‘Vinyl Digging’ has been the more ‘traditional’ way in which many producers have chosen to sample records.  In other words they will dig for samplable breaks through old vinyl records and use the records there.Continue reading

Some of My Favourite Grime Records

Here are some of my favourite Grime Records.  Some may argue there’s no difference between Grime and UK Hip Hop.  I would argue there’s a distinct difference.  For those that aren’t in the know about the UK music scene and Grime as a genre this wikipedia page on Grime gives a pretty good description.Continue reading

Living as a Peaceful Warrior

Here is Dan Millman talking about living as a peaceful warrior.  Dan Millman is the writer of the book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior” and is in fact one of my favourite people.  He’s not a doctor or someone with a PhD in psychology but nonetheless I at very least like and draw inspiration from his approach to life and I find it enlightening to hear him speak.Continue reading

A Rapper That Loves Nick Drake

I’m a rapper that loves Nick Drake!  This may surprise many of you with my love of Rap, Hip Hop etc but this is one of my favourite songwriters ever and actually quite a big influence on me. Many of my rapper friend’s won’t get it cause you’d all rather just sit in your bubble listening to nothing but rap and argue over multi-syllables and punchlines, but fuck it! Break out your shell. Nick Drake is a true legend!Continue reading

Kool G Rap vs Celsius

Kool G Rap VS Celsius

So I did a remix Kool G Rap VS Celsius.  Basically combining one of my all time favourite rappers Kool G Rap with one of my favourite dance tracks in recent years, ‘Incoming’ by Celsius.  I took Kool G Rap’s a capella from the track ‘Ill Street Blues’ and put it over the top of the ‘Incoming’ track.  The result works rather well in my opinion (but then I would say that).  It really changes the dynamic to the G Rap’s lyrics compared to how they fit on the original ‘Ill Street Blues’ beat.Continue reading

Funky DJ Mix Icon

Funky DJ Mix

I put together a funky DJ Mix of some of my favourite music.  When I’m not rapping and making beats I also DJ, hence my bio ‘Rapper, Producer AND DJ’…. Other than the numerous DJ gigs I do, I rarely get to show off my DJ skills so I thought I’d treat you to a DJ Mix I put together featuring a lot of my favourite music. It’s not just in the realm of Rap and Hip Hop that you might know me for. There’s also a fine mix upbeat Funk, Soul, House and Garage.  I like to mix genres when I DJ as there’s such a huge amount of insight you can gain from listening to numerous forms of music even if you’re strictly a rapper.Continue reading
