End Of Year ABU! Show - TONIGHT

It's the last Thursday of the month - nay, the year - today so you know where your butt should be at 9pm, don't you?!!

Loads of good beats tonight (K-Solo, Biz, Jonzun Crew and MC Duke amongst many others) with just a hint of festive flavour and a quick look back at what's good with the Disco Scratch / ABU! review of 2011.

Hope to see you all in the chatroom!

9pm - 11pm

Sure Shot Productions No Half-Steppin Xmas Jam

Last Saturday was the Sure Shot Productions No Half-Steppin Xmas Jam and as expected was a truly great experience.
DJ's on the night were residents Just-1 and Chrome with Waxer and myself, Repo guesting behind the wheels of steel.
In front of the decks were some absolutely blinding acts. Billed as 'Special Guests' was SUSPEKT who tore up the place.
Following fresh on their heels was a performance from WHIRLWIND D of SOLID N' MIND with WAXER providing scratch duties. Bearing in mind that this was only his second live performance in 20 years then this was even more breathtaking.
Norwich's own CHROME & ILL INSPIRED took to the stage next and proceeded to wreck shop. These two have their routines down and it really shows. Chrome's funky rhymes are matched only by the lyrical dexterity of Bill's fantastic, jaw-dropping lyrics. 

DJ JUST-1 got on the wheels straight away and
Next on was the welcome return of KILLA INSTINCT who pushed the envelope even further with MC BANDOG giving it everything he had even though he was suffering from a previous leg injury. Unfortunately K.I. don't perform in the UK as much as we'd all like so watching them here was a bit of an early Christmas present.

It was my turn to rock the jingle bells so I got busy throwing on the black plastic but as time was precious it turned into a 3-man merry-go-round with Chrome and Waxer joining me.

What a night. It's hard to say what exactly was the best moment for me but some highlights include:

Going to the Graffiti Crimbo Jam prior to the evening jam and seeing KILO's absolutely dope piece (below).

Meeting a load of friends I hadn't seen since the 3 The Hard Way Xmas Jam last year in Birmingham.

Showing Auntie Repo to the ABU! Massive.

Waxer's impromptu demonstration of smashing Bring Forth The Guillotine to pieces during his set!

So much respect for Chrome and Just-1 for getting this all together. Remember this is every month although no live acts, but special guest dj's.
And also catch Just-1's Hip Hop Sessions every Tuesday on Future Radio at 10pm.

And also a big hello to anyone who is visiting the blog for the first time after picking up one of the little ABU! cards that were left around the pub on Saturday ;o)

Looking For The Perfect Beat - A Hip Hop History Doc

Old-timers will already have seen this when I first posted it last year.
It's an audio documentary broadcast on BBC Radio 1 in 1990.
The link was originally on the rather effeminate Rapidshare service which expired in seconds, more or less.

Check the post as I've updated the link.
