do it

if and only if

*if and only if is the latest jam from birdapres (along w/ co-conspirator and music man grejay), at this point, a cassette-only release... this is about to change soon!!! check yer local social networking site(s) for more information... any which way you press play, if you like to hear intelligent rappers rap or drums that crash and bash and or vintage synthesizers and recording equipment, do yourself a favour and check this out. it's bonkers!@#$%!!! sorta cracks me up though. there's so much hype and hysteria about certain rap artists smothering the internet. i KNOW that this release won't garner even a mere fraction of the talk about whatever it is that rap fans talk about these days (pharrell's latest hat??? does pharrell even rap???), but for those looking for something a little deeper, and a lot more rewarding (w/o catering to some corny ass throwback shit or holy hipster hoopla), if and only if might be your ticket to a new reality... PEACE

family affair (this friday!@#$%!!!)

*call it an unexpected surprise if you will, the stunt man and david loves jones (vinyl records) have joined forces to create a truly magical DJ night. w/ over 40 years of music experience between the two, family affair is simply music for music's sake, how refreshing. enhanced by save on meats' KILLER pop-up location burger bar (*i can't recommend this enough!!!) as well as a sweet selection of pinball machines, the good vibes are infectious to say the least. catch the latest edition of family affair this coming friday (january 24, 2014)... there's a rumoured guest appearance/DJ set from sipreano (i think it might be true)!@#$%!!!
