Fillarikorjaamo feat. Kriton Bangers DJ's Once Again

Yes, it's on again! This time with Hennyman and Alppila spinning some weird science with guest appearances as well. Hennyman will be filling his Chrome Messenger bag with classics & fresh picks from Jamaica and Alppila will have a wide selection of electronic pop I guess. And 'cos we also rock Serato nowadays, you can expect anything from us, 'cos we hold no barriers when it comes to mixing great songs together. Mos Def a short MJ appreciation set at some point. Or then not.

So come to Korjaamo this friday to witness the fitness! Take yer bike as well.

Distant Relatives

The marriage of reggae and rap was a big trend in the 90's and I'd personally like to see more of that stuff coming out. I mean for an example the stuff that Nas and Damian "Junior Gong" have done in the past is sooo great (see this). Well now it seems that this ganja-lovin' duo is back in the studio and on the road mixing the roots to the hop. The snippet "As We Are" from the album to come sounds just what it should sound like. Damian is one of the best toasters on the market and Nas has always mastered the skill of clear and distinctive rapping.

Never Forget The Warriors

A suprising combination here. Scenes from the classic flick Warriors with the music by Judge.

Both tell a different New York story, the first from the 70's and the latter from the 80's. I love both the film and the band. Hardcore still lives!

DJing to the masses

Once again, it comes from Sweden. This one's called Pacemaker. It's a handheld portable DJ-gear to democratise the DJ culture. Good be nice add on to those summer picnics.

And yes, one of the master minds behind this is Stakka Bo... Y'all remember this hit from the past?

'Saturday Night Fever'

Uuuh, I'm still loving this track just as much as when I first heard it years ago. 100% dope 'ish!

Death Of Autotune

We're all waiting for Jay-Z's upcoming Blueprint 3 -release. The album was initially said to feature a lot of songs that utilized the voice-altering technology, Jay recently removed all Auto-Tune from BP3, recording 'D.O.A.' instead. Apparently, he's sick of the trend. Well, autotune can be annoying but what's the stuff about dissing tight jeans?

"you boys jeans too tight, you colors too bright, your voice too light. I might wear black for a year straight, I might bring back Versace shades. this ain’t for z100, Ye told me to kill y’all to keep it 1 hundred, this is for hot 97, for Khalid we the best’n, yeah this is just violent, death of autotune, moment of silence."
