After a short hiatus from live shows, I’m excited to announce a big show for us next Wednesday at a great venue in NYC.

It’s probably been a while since you’ve been able to catch us live, so why not come show your support as we share the stage with John Robinson, and share the bill w/ The Hangmen for their CD Release Party at DROM. We’ll be debuting some new instrumental music as well as tracks from the forthcoming John Robinson & PVD record available later this year.
Ok, so here’s the details for the show. We need YOU there! Thanks!

Since splash!-Mag started last year, we had a couple of great moments. We did one of our most impressive interviews with Frank Bush and Derrick Harvey aka Frank N Dank. At this year’s splash!-Festival Frank N Dank met John Robinson aka Lil’Sci (from Scienz of Life) for the first time in their life. We filmed their conversation about (the mystery of) J. Dilla and the greatness of the hiphop culture. Get to know three artists, who are not only great when it comes to music…

Q-Tip Entrance:

Peace my People! So I missed this Noisemakers Session w/ Tip but I was @ the last one with Questlove so I had to post this joint. I can only imagine the power of this session right here as Tip is easily one of the ambassadors of the Hip Hop Jazz/soul next level movement. Glad I can share this with you all as I easily consider this a history lesson. Study the music yall!

Q-Tip on J Dilla:

Another one in the can… Wednesday’s Noisemakers with Q-Tip was a grand ole time. Supa Qool DJ Uncle Q was in the building playing the classics to set it up, The Cypher carried the spirit in middle relief, and Rosey shut it down. The Abstract shared with Peter Rosenberg animated anecdotes about: * the humble Murry Bergtraum High beginnings of A Tribe Called Quest * Red Alert giving his nephew Mike G. of The Jungle Brothers the acetate of The Bridge is Over for the H.S. talent competition * composing Bonita Applebum and I Left My Wallet in El Segundo as a “pause” beat at the tender age of 15 * July 4th, 1988 being a very special day in Hip-Hop history… * Busta Rhymes considering joining ATCQ subsequent to the breakup of Leaders of The New School And this was before the intermission!!! Yesterday, the blogosphere was awash with talk and clips of Tip working with Miles Davis and J Dilla, but as the dust settled, there was a clip that very few had the chance to see. Check out the impromptu jam session with Q-Tip, Questlove, Daru Jones and the rest of The Cypher rocking out on Dilla’s Lightworks.
