S.O.U.L. Purpose Feat. Statik Selektah "Preposition"

Brand new heat from Mazzi & Statik Selektah. 'Nuff said.

ALIFE Shelltoe

So as you are all aware, ALIFE sneakers are known for their weird and wonderful colours, materials, and so forth...

Some are nice, and some are just plain crap....These fall under the "crap" category - they just simply do not work...I mean, they look like a cheap Adidas Shelltoe rip-off, and that aqua model is just plain hideous.

You lost with these, ALIFE.

Jadakiss Uncensored Part 2 (Video)

So he's now changing the name of his forthcoming album to "The Last Kiss". Apparently "Kiss My Ass" wasn't testing well with retail outlets....Shame, as it's definitely the better title....

However, there will be a "Kiss My Ass" mixtape, so it's all good....

"The Last Kiss" is due out December 9th.

Da Ranjahz Feat. Cee-Lo "Insp Her Ation"

Some classic/hard to find DJ Premier goodness for you all...

This is the joint that Da Ranjaz are mainly known for, which features Cee-Lo. It took me a while to track this down on 12" a few years back, but it was worth it...Absolutely love this beat.

Taken from their 2003 album "Who Feels It Knows". Full VLS, encoded @ 320kbps.

More Old School are rare Hip Hop coming this week...


BONUS! Here's the music video:

Very dope.

Ying Yang Twins "Wild Out"

The Ying Yang Twins used to make some good party records. "Salt Shaker" was dope, whilst "Shake" and "Drop" were (and Still are) pretty much standard dancefloor fillers...But this joint is pretty awful.

It was funny to start with, but maybe I'm now just finally getting tired of hearing them scream "HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!" every f*ucking moment....

Kardinal Offishall "Numba 1 (Tide Is High)" (Music Video)

I'm back from a 2 day hiatus...It's been a busy couple of days with the Vibe Allstars Tour and the "Alizé Remixed" show in London last night...More of that to come soon.

Anyhow, here's the video for Kardinal Offishall's latest single featuring Keri Hilson, "Numba 1 (Tide Is High)" (although it's actually Rihanna who features on the album).

This has got radio hit written all over it...Catchy hook, strong beat...Definitely feeling this.

DJ Babu Feat. MF Doom & Sean Price "The Unexpected"

The latest leak of Babu's "Duck Season 3". As the internet has been saying, the song title is very fitting for this MF Doom/Sean Price collabo. And it's sick.

We all know that Doom can spit, but damn, Sean Price is an absolute beast on the mic. "Boom Bye Yeah" is one of those joints that's still on constant iTunes rotation.

So for this week, I decided to go back to Hip Hop and do a Notorious B.I.G. special, throwing some of my favourite Biggie joints into the mix....A few unreleased and rare cuts here, but also a few classics thrown in for good measure.

"Springfield Punx" Simpsons by Dean Fraser

"The Simpsons" is literally the greatest cartoon of all time. It's constant satire of current events and popular culture is cleverly done, and is one of the reasons why I've been watching it since it first came on Sky over here in the UK. To be featured in/on The Simpsons (aka to be simpsonized) is probably the greatest thing that anyone could wish for in my books. Probably more amazing than having your own Hollyood pavement star. The amount of actors, musicians and politicians who have featured easily rolls into the hundreds.

Artist Dean Fraser takes it one step further to apply The Simpsons theme over many notable pop-icons from the comic book world as well as the real-world entertainment personalities. Throughout October, he’s been releasing a steady stream of one Marvel character per day which can be seen at Springfield Punx. Other artwork includes Back To The Future, He-Man, the Dark Knight characters, as well as characters from the 60's Batman Show!

"808's & Hearbreak" will be released on November 25th.

Kanye West "Heartless" (Unmastered)

The unmastered version finally drops....

A lot of people are saying that "808's & Heartbreak" is going to be Kanye's "Electric Circus". Personally I think the album is going to be very interesting. Admittedly, it took me a good few listens to really get into "Love Lockdown", and I think the whole album will be pretty similar too....But, I have the feeling it'll be dope.

Anyhow, for those who haven't yet heard "Heartless", it's a nice mid-tempo joint. Kanye's still doing his thing with the vocoder on the hook, which is catchy as hell. Definitely one of those sing-a-long joints for the end of the night. I think this has got potential to be the radio hit of the album.

Nike SB Super Hero/Villains Pack

Select Nike SB accounts will soon be getting the Super Heroes/Villains pack, which consists of two Dunk Mids and a Dunk Hi.

Taking inspiration from characters including Batman, Spiderman and the Storm Trooper from Star Wars, all three get a suede/leather treatment following each respective characters color scheme.

Whilst Nike SB's have been steadily going downhill over the past couple of years, these aren't too bad. In all fairness, the only sneaker I'd rock would be the Stormtrooper (which more resembles Venom) model...Maybe the Spiderman model too, but to honest I just can't get down with Dunk Mids in general.

Anyhow, Industrial Rideshop is now taking pre-orders on all three.

Uncle Murda/Jay-Z - "Untitled" (Fat Joe/DJ Khaled Diss)

Okay, it's not actually a diss record.

By the looks of things, someone's trying to start beef between Jay-Z & Fat Joe. Well, according to Just Blaze that Jay-Z verse isn't new. It's about 5 years old.

Also, there's no mention of DJ Khaled at all throughout the track. So who's trying to start beef, is the question?

Just as I'm typing this, I've found the whole explanation over at Miss Info's blog. Looks like it's "either someone who is super thirsty to heat up their career. Or someone who is super thirsty to get at Fat Joe". Interesting....


That beat is straight fire though!

Cable Wins The "Alizé Remixed" Competition!

I've just found out I'm one of the "Alizé Remixed" Competition winners!

To Celebrate 21 years of Alizé, they held a DJ competition back in the Spring/Summer months, to coincide with their "Alizé Remixed" tour. Basically you had to create a 10 minute mini mix of your favourite party tracks from the past 21 years, and then upload them to the contest’s website. It could include as many tracks or genres, just as long as the mix was dope.

As there were five dates for the tour, there would be five winners in total - Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol & London...

I entered this for fun and completely forgot about it....Then out of the blue today, I got a call to say that I had won!

As part of the main prize, I'll be spinning at Paper in London on October 25th, supporting the legend that is Grandmaster Flash. Totally stoked....

I also wanna give props to Alizé for putting on the competition. The fundamentals of DJ-ing is being able to rock a party, and more contests such as this would be dope for DJ culture in general, especially in this age where nearly everything can be done at the click of a mouse button.

Lastly, if you wanna check out the mix which I submitted, click here.


01. Tupac - Got My Mind Made Up
02. Redman - Blow Your Mind
03. House Of Pain - Jump Around
04. Bobby Brown - My Prerogative
05. Boyz II Men - Motown Philly
06. De La Soul - Me Myself And I
07. Fatman Scoop & DJ Kool - It Takes Scoop
08. Destiny's Child - Lose My Breath
09. Reel 2 Real - I Like To Move It
10. Sean Paul - Temperature
11. Alex Gaudino - Destination Calabria
12. Robin S - Show Me Love (Stonebridge Club Mix)
13. Justin Timberlake - My Love
14. Tag Team - Whoomp (There It Is)
15. Guns 'N Roses - Sweet Child Of Mine

There's not as much scratching/juggling on this as you'll find in some of the Weekly Mixes, since the guidelines were to focus on selection, but there's a few things here and there....

Let me know what you think!

Lil Wayne x The Roots "A Milli" (Live)

Clear version of the audio can be found here.

From what I've read on Nah Right, that's ?uestlove doing the "A Mill'is".

Barneys New York x ALIFE “The Orange Pack”

I'm usually in two minds about ALIFE sneakers. Most of the time, they work...but then you got models such as the Everybody High Parachute which are complete gash...

Fortunately, this collaboration with Barneys works really well, by ombining full grain, perforated and crinkle patent leathers with orange, givng the sneakers a crisp, clean look.

Available at selected Barneys outlets, and also from their online store.

J. Slikk "Separation Anxiety" Instrumental LP

I've been fiending for some dope instrumentals for a while now. The one like J. Slikk has come to my rescue.

For the Fall, J. Slikk has a whole new batch of beats. Rather than put them all together as one mp3 like his previous beat tape from the Summer (which I admit I slept on!), they're all separate tracks, in CDQ.

Definitely some soulful beats to vibe out to for this season...Highly recommended....
