Wildman Steve and DJ Riz - WBAU 90.3 / Keys Open Doors Thursday!

This Thursday at Boston, MA's Good Life marks the return of the Keys Open Doors event. These nights are always very memorable and I'm sure this week's will be no different, as the line up includes DJ Riz, 45 King and The Bladerunners! If you're in the area you should definitely check it out. Over at the Bladerunner Blog, DJ 7L had a chance to catch up with DJ Riz and hear a few stories. Head over there to learn a little bit about how to obtain a key and also to check out side A of a Wildman Steve & DJ Riz WBAU 90.3 radio tape.

Here is side B of that same tape -

Wildman Steve and DJ Riz show - WBAU 90.3 (1992?) -

This undated cassette is probably from 92-ish. At one point Wildman Steve is talking about some cassettes he has for giveaway, which include tracks by Redman, Public Enemy, and "a group called Onyx."

The Poetry of Reality

My friend just told me she was shown this video in science class today. Maybe it's time I go back to school. Now, I understand that the "auto tune news," "auto tune sports" etc thing is overdone, but for some reason this one hit me in the heart. Maybe it's because I like science so much.

I will regret this post.

1982 Album Listening Party In NYC

If you're in New York on October 19th, I guarantee you'll have a good time at the 1982 official album listening event. I just attended the Boston listening party the other night and it was great. Statik Selektah & Termanology have a chemistry that can only exist if you're musical colleagues AND genuine friends. You'll enjoy hearing their "behind-the-scenes" commentary on the new album, which by the way is HEAVY. Thugathon ya'll!

Criminal Minded Deluxe Box Set - 3xCD

Looks like Mecca and the Soul Brother isn't the only classic album getting super deluxe treatment this month -

What format should Criminal Minded come out in next? In the past couple years, we've seen the single CD, double CD, USB Gun, and picture disc LP in circulation. I don't play around nor do I f around.

(Double-click video to open in new window. It's getting cut off on my high tech blog)

My God!

And check out the "Ooooh, Oooohs" below. I never realized Pete Rock was singing in between verses. It all blends together so well. Am I alone on not noticing this until now?

Damn, man…
