HEATA – “Interference” Limited Cassette

INTERFERENCE BLK&WHITE

“Interference” is a limited run of 20 homemade CASSETTES mixed live by DJ Heata. But it’s not what you think. During the course of working on my forthcoming official album “Executions” (due for release in the summer of 2017 through the mighty Unkut Recordings), I got distracted one night by crazy synthesizer records and decided to make a DJ mix unlike anything I had done before.

This is NOT a Hip Hop mixtape, but a collection of weird & wonderful synth music from wax LP’s spanning from the 60’s to the 80’s. There are no beats or singing on here, but a stack of bizarre, evil & at times beautiful synthesizer arrangements. The mix is 90min long spread over two sides and is mixed live in one take each straight to tape with a few live synths and samples played over the top. The tapes used are brand new TDK’s from my personal stash.

If you’re up for something a bit different , and perfect for that late night steez, check this out. A massive thank-you to the visual master Joshua Davis for the photography & artwork.

Limited to 20 Cassettes only.

10 x Black Cover – Recorded to TDK D90

10 x White Cover – Recorded to TDK B90

A.B. Original – Report to The Mist

The conclusions are clear.

When the Royal Commission provided their recommendations in 1991, they quoted “Aboriginal people die in custody at a rate relative to their proportion of the whole population which was totally unacceptable and which would not be tolerated if it occurred in the non-Aboriginal community. But this occurs not because Aboriginal people in custody are more likely to die than others in custody but because the Aboriginal population is grossly over-represented in custody. Too many Aboriginal people are in custody too often.”

But since the report, the proportion of adult prisoners who are Indigenous has doubled – 13% of the prison population then to 27% now. So while the rate of Aboriginal deaths in custody has gone down slightly (rate per 1000 people in prison) more Aboriginal people are dying in custody today than when the inquiry happened. And many in circumstances where the recommendations have been ignored.

Please visit reporttothemist.com for more details and talk about whats been ignored and swept up under the rug. 

PSA from The General

The following is a statement from Lazy Grey with regards to recently aired SBS viceland documentary below. I’d say for the most part our subscribers know whats up but the more people this can reach the better.

First off, i want to say thanks to those that had my back on these recent events. I saw those that spoke out to support me when i got thrown under the bus, and those that said nothing. I see you.

The way SBS portrayed me in their recent Viceland Episode, making me the poster boy for a racist white Australian rap culture is fucking putrid.  And in true misleading journalistic fashion, they used a couple of sound bites, an ignorant narrative, tied in with an interview with some uniformed children talking on the future of Hip Hop on this continent. I have never, and will never, rely on the media to inform me on what Hip Hop is. It has been a long hard slog to get an ounce of respect, or some acknowledgement for the music we made, way before rappers sold out festivals and stadiums all over the country.

 Its typical for the media to use divide and conquer tactics, so we all turn on each other, instead of coming together and focusing our attentions to chanting down Babylon.

Don’t take my advice, do your own research. There needed to be a Have a Beer. There needed to be a Matty B’s Fridays. There needed to be The Herds Scallops, so we can look back and see how far its come. Peace to the O.G’s from a time before my time. And peace to the future kings and queens.

Fuck you SBS and fuck you Viceland for presenting such a biased and limited view. I would expect this click bait journalism from channel 7, 9 or 10 but not you guys. Two middle fingers for you!

Respect the General

NASIMOTO

If you’ve ever wondered what you get when you mix the sperm of a Queensbridge thoroughbred street poet and the alter ego of a Californian ill loop digga.. Ponder no longer cause here it is; Nasimoto is a mix of Nas accapellas over Quasimoto instrumentals compiled by David Begun. The bearing of this bambino is 21 songs of pure musical delightment, if you’re familiar with these artists then your ears are in for wonders. Hit it from the Get Down!
