“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

Both parties are mad overlooked.
Deutsche Marks is out now. Feeling it off the first listen.
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.
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!
Planet Asia dropped a dope lo-fi EP earlier this year entirley produced on a SP-1200 by Sonny Vintage. Visuals for the joint ‘Made It’ featuring Rozewood and Hus Kingpin surfaced a few days ago. Catch the wave below.
2017 just keeps on giving! Wake and bake to the new DaVillins ‘HOW HIGH’ video featuring BRNGTN. Taken from the Cashmere Dice EP produced by Dj Skizz. Bong!
Had a laugh at this. Devin’s new release Acoustic Levitation is the fucking goods. Give it a listen! H-Town veteran that says rappin’ like rap-a-lot.
Following on from the full-length album “KOLD HEAT” released late 2014, the team at Karsniogenics have put together a limited edition 7 inch vinyl release specifically for this years WRSD.
The A-side joint “PIG CITY” artwork pays homage to Brisbane band THE PARAMETERS “PIG CITY” track originally recorded at 4ZZZ radio and released in 1984. The release has provided it’s name to Brisbane author Andrew Stafford, (PIG CITY; from The Saints to Savage Garden) focusing on the Brisbane music scene and tracking the political climate from the 1970’s to the 2000’s.
The AA-side joint “MAGNUM OPUS” was a personal favourite of the artists and well received by 750 fans alike. To celebrate this release the crew has cooked up an abstract piece of visual art to accompany the song, which will be available via the Karsniogenics YouTube channel on our online preorder day, Wednesday April 19.
This is on the top of a ‘shit we missed’ list I put together over the weekend. Playing catch up ain’t no fun like when the homies can’t have none but there is a bunch of stuff that’s worth sharing as a reminder of how good this year is shaping up already.
Milano Constantine ‘The Way We Were’ produced by Dj Skizz and Marco Polo – holy fuck! This has been banged daily since release date, if I had to sum it up in one word it would be; “Cocaina!”.
The wave continues with a new video released today by LA’s dilated rainmaker Evidence. ‘Throw It All Away’ sounds like EV has been experiencing some gloomy weather of his own. He goes in with that signature slow flow style delivering a tale of taming the cyclone within. Alchemist provides the backdrop with a classic synthetic drum break and a mind bending string sample loop. No news on a new solo album at this stage, it’s been a minute between storms since Cats and Dogs in 2011.
2017 is shaping up to be a cracker year for Hip Hop me reckons. This is just too fuckin’ good not to post up. Run Royal….where you at?
Merry Christmas everyone.
It’s been a big year and what better way to sign off than with a Chrimbus Funk & Soul Mix. Best thing is…it’s a free download. Hope y’all enjoy it and have a safe and happy Christmas & New Year.
Here it is…the remix to the already classic “R.I.P” banger from DJ Supreme. Check it!
