BRUCE ILLEST on "Freak Patrol"

This is 30 minutes of straight-up, non-stop dance music.
Give it a listen [it should play automatically when you follow the link]
and you can also download it and put it on your ipods and zunes... enjoy!

By the way, when I heard that High Schools actually have
a group called the "Freak Patrol" that monitors their dances two things
came to mind. 1.) Best name ever... and 2.) It's probably not true
Here's proof: "Freak Patrol" on ABC NEWS

My new album just came
out today so make sure you get it.
producer Eliot Lipp's new
album "Peace Love Weed 3d"
covers a lot of ground in ten songs.
The record's style varies quite a bit
throughout; exploring his signature
instrumental electro-funk, acid,
fusion, and italo disco inspired sounds.

From their [impossible to find] record "Clear Lake Audiotorium,"
this is De La Soul featuring a Tribe Called Quest doing a little number called "SH.fe.mC's."

According to wikipedia: "
Clear Lake Audiotorium was a six track promo EP by De La Soul given out to A-list DJ's in 1994..." Damn straight. I was either 13 or 14-years-old at that time, but I was one of the chosen 500 DJs that had one of these in his arsenal...
[thanks, DJ RAGS.]

Here's the first cut off of Black Sheep's 2007 album "8WM/NOVAKANE"...

Back in 1991 ,the legendary duo kicked-off their classic album
"A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" with a ridiculously over-the-top
violent track where Dres says something like
"yo, who the fuck used my toothbrush??? ",
before he guns down his entire family and then
tries to catch his schoolbus...The song ends when
Dres wakes up to reveal that the silly
version of Black Sheep you just heard was nothing
more than a bad dream he was having...

-yet, somehow, I didn't see this one coming.

So...I've been working on starting a label for a while and this is our first release. It's a compilation with tracks from 6 different artists that I've either known since way back or met along the way. The tracks cover a lot of different styles of electronic music with hip hop being a major influence to all of us as well. It's all instrumental (except zachary sings a bit on his tracks), and everyone will have more material coming out next year. Here is a freebie:

Adek is one of my favorite writers. I first saw his stuff around town in Tacoma & Seattle when I was just a young hustler. He was up a lot in the bay area when I was there and now I see his shit all over new york. His letters are really bubbly but still grimey as hell. I wanna get in touch w him & try to get him to design a 12" or something.
