better don´t smoke

you know what? marlboros´are tempting. but since mama said don´t smoke - you just better stay with the sick girls and die of dancing rather than cancer.

there might be some high heeled women to attract with a marlboro - but at the same time - tonights the last chance to see them sick girls at wmf - it´s the last chance to party at this wmf before it gets rebuild into office spaces. marlboro might come back - but this wmf sommerlager for sure don´t!

i admit that it is very tempting and hard to avoid - but you can be sure - when jay oh finds out you didn´t show up to say good bye tonight for rather going for a smoke - you won´t be my friend anymore.

LOUNGE REPUBLISH

rob_frede2noeyesweb.jpg

okay. one of those guys above will tear down the lounge
at THE GRAND GRIME REVOLUTION on friday
(the other one will more than likely be dancing on the mainfloor in the meantime)
his name is FREDE.
you might know him. he's one of the charming REPUBLISH members.
the other one playing (not in the picture) is not in the picture.
his name is AUDIO. you know him anyway.
he's always on stage at parties. he's a real dj
(whereas frede is a turntablist by heart but only in his dreams).
wildstyle it's going to be: OLDSKOOL HIP HOP D&B RAVE EXSTASY.
have fun.

*i've got to run & hide now. they gonna kill me.

that's for sure.
if you haven't been to their ass-kicking VOLKSPALAST show last -
when was that again? - october, you should really come and listen this time.
tiny maihem will catch your breath and twist it and shake it until you gonna faint.

this is going to be a sick night:
THE GRAND GRIME REVOLUTION
let's hope you people gonna be strong enough for this.
you will experience grunge-hop-electro-snap by GOLDCHAINS&SUE CIE
as well as original gangsta grime by MC MAIHEM & TNT which
will be only topped by the ice cold beats&bassness of DJ MAXXIMUS plus
last but not least cause we'll play first: SICK GIRLS in heavy rotation.

the new GOLD CHAINS album 'WHEN THE WORLD WAS OUR FRIEND' is freshly
out on KITTY YO and the eclectic duo is touring europe.
that's what they are about:

GOLDCHAINS - BETTER TOGETHERsnip

DIAL UP - MORE UK HIP HOP

hey, OPTIMUS PRIME, transform!
okay. OPTIMAS PRIME, how's this?
wow. great transformation, bubba.
better than the one of the poor little idiot in the us army who
actually had his name changed into optimus prime, which did
not prevent him from dying of prostata cancer soon after. r.i.p.op.

back to the uk. back to a rather strange environment for
hard-edged hip hop afficionados: welcome to cardiff.
this is where monkey, stagga and touchy muff (?!?) got together
to form OPTIMAS PRIME and DIAL UP RECORDS.
these guys have got a pretty diverse taste in hip hop and deliver
nourishing releases and remixes that work perfectly at home and in the club alike.
i just got their new ep 'TRY BEFORE YOU DIE' and this is exactly what you should do, too.
here is one drum&bass remix i really like, more downloads (14!)on their website.

OPTIMAS PRIME - SELFSHOCK D&B RMX

LACHAPELLE'S RIZE

rize_lachapelle_web.jpg

whoever missed the screening of RIZE, david lachapelle's amazing documentary on
CLOWNING and KRUMPING earlier this month at MUSEUMSINSEL
gets another chance from october 20 onwards, when the movie will officially start nation-wide.
the infamous fight-dance style that has been developed by gangs and street dancers
after the la riots in 1992 has gained mainstream fame through several music videos
(-> chemical brothers, missy, aguilera) since then.
watch it - it's massive.

BERLIN SHOPPING - IN YA FACE

hey girls & boys!
falls noch jemand ausser mir das zugegeben teure aber höchst befriedigende hobby pflegt, sich mit allerlei töpfchen, spendern, fläschchen und döschen aus parfumeriefachgeschäften zu verwöhnen, dem sei folgendes, sehr angenehmes einkaufserlebnis empfohlen.
wen macdouglas ebenso anekelt wie das 'wo-war-jetz-nochmal-lancome?' anbieterlabyrinth im kadewe; wer noch nicht reif ist für die créme de la mer-oberliga im quartier 106, aber gerne in winzigen läden von kompetentem personal beraten wird, gehe zur PARFUMERIE HERHAUSEN.
klein und fein direkt auf der friedrichstrasse gelegen (quasi zwischen starbucks und bang+olufsen) gibt es hier immer irgendeinen schicken rabatt auf irgendwas oder - wie jetzt gerade - eine reizende sparaktion zur kundenanbindung. für jeden erworbenen artikel werden 20% des preises gutgeschrieben, die man dann nach belieben beim nächsten einkauf einlösen oder sich solange subsummieren lassen kann, bis die tube shiseido supersekret oder sonstwas, für ganz umsonst ist. sehr schön. somit vermeidet man auf ebay nivea im kanebotiegel zu ersteigern oder sich beim versuch im lafayette den preis runter zu handeln, irgendwie nicht so gut zu fühlen.
besonders nett bedient der sohn vom chef und weiss einiges zu erzählen. so bringt zum beispiel clinique in kürze eine wundercreme heraus, die innerhalb von 14 sekunden (ja, wir haben die zeit gestoppt) falten komplett verschwinden lässt, indem der dummen haut vorgegaukelt wird, sie werde partiell verletzt und dementsprechend schnell mal anschwillt. plopp - falte weg. ist allerdings reversibel. schade.

CERTIFIED BANANAS

B. AN. AN. AS.
the september mix is up at certified bananas' new blog.
it's my most favourite mix yet with the funny cb guys running wild
through their cheesy 80s collection
(is she really going out with him?
is she really gonna take him home tonight? lalala)
and picks of whatever lives in the murky corners of their instable minds.
just the right stuff for a sick girl.

MOBO AWARDS WINNERS

why is it that the UK music biz is so much cooler than the rest of the world's and this since decades? the 'music of black origin' - mobo awards took place for the 10th time yesterday night and these are the results.
with KANO, LETHAL B and SWAY winning what they have deserved.
congratulations!
sure, you can't stop a rather cheesy act like LEMAR, heroe of one of those popstar soaps - still better than bro'sis though. don't know if DADDY YANKEE is too happy about his price for best world music and africa might have more to offer than YOUSSOU N'DOUR over and over again but still, the mobos are outstanding in their respect for underground artists and newcomers.
but who the f*** is steve sutherland?

Best Album - Lemar - Time To Grow
Best Hip Hop Act - Sway
Best Jazz Act - Rhian Benson
Best R&B Act - John Legend
Best Reggae Act - Damian Marley - Welcome To Jamrock
Best Single - Lethal B - Pow (Forward)
Best UK Club DJ - Steve Sutherland
Best UK Newcomer - Kano
Best UK Radio DJ - Tim Westwood
Best Video - Snoop Dogg ft Pharrell - Drop It Like It's Hot
Best World Music Act - Daddy Yankee
UK Act of the Year - Lemar
Best African Act - Youssou N'Dour

UK HIP HOP

just 15 months ago I would have stated:
"new uk hip hop? goldie lookin'chains you mean? that's about it, innit?"
luckily enuff life is all about learning and thus I did.
find my personal recommendations and some sound bites below.
don't forget, I said "personal" - means very subjective picks
from a much bigger pool of artists, obviously...

freshman in da biz and everybodie's darling right now:
introducing SWAY DASAFO
he runs his own night in london, is nominated for the mobo awards without even being signed and got his very own slot on the prestigious run the road 2 compilation. a very professional 22-years-old newbie that is. SWAY might be the next one getting a call from jay-z but I bet he won't pick up the phone. for just a couple of days now his first single "up your speed" is out on all city on cd + vinyl, get it at JUNO (see sick faves).
here is a lil download of another very fashionable smash hit:

SWAY - FLO'FASHION

while sway is following fashion, KLASHNEKOFF is following his heart. last year saw the release of his first 6-tracker 'The SAGAS OF KLASHNEKOFF' full of political conscious hip hop/ragga anthems. he's been featured on 'run the road' for the second time as well and is as charismatic as he is petite.
this is one to sing-a-long:

KLASHNEKOFF - BEFORE YOU DIE

being on the road for quite some time, the NEXTMEN are definitely always up-to-date and one of my favourite producers. they include traditional hip hop, dancehall vibes and even grrrrime into their various releases and just started their own label 'custom records'. get whatever you can by the NEXTMEN, it will always add to your collection.
here's a snippet of a new release - more downloads on their website.

NEXTMEN - SPIN IT ROUNDsnip


ok. we're leaving the hype/style section for now for some real rural essex talent (where hip hop lives...). meet JIBBARISH and his friends. we don't know what he puts on his cereals every morning or maybe it's in the essex water - whatever it is, something makes him rap fast. and faster. hitting warp speed any sec.
there's not much out on vinyl yet but DROP BOMBZ has a sure place in my record box, always good for when the going gets tough.
snippet here plus a full mp3 of THE CAVALRY. a slow bounce by EVIL ED with an all star team including YUNGUN, RICOCHET & guess who's JIBBARISH, rat-tat-tat.
hot like fire, cold like winter, flow like water...

JIBBARISH - DROP BOMBZsnip

EVIL ED - THE CAVALRY

SHAGGY SHAKES A LEG

life is full of strange experiences but this surely was well worth it.
the radio nrj 'lover lover' boat stuffed with teen girls and their moms turned into a playground for unfulfilled sexual desire when SHAGGY finally entered the room.
most entertaining to see for your bemused mainstream novices jay-oh and ad.biz
was the unholy but adamantine coalition between both, daughters and moms,
for shagging SHAGGY right there on the dancefloor or at least to have a threesome in the next available broom closet.
"mom, you're my best friend" "thank you sweety - now go, grab him!"

and didn't we promise you a photo love story?
here it is - always trust the SICK GIRLS!

STARSTYLING

sportjacke_fertig.jpg

learn something new every day.
learn something not so new but worth it anyway, too.
if you are not berlin hinterhof-savvy yet go and find
STARSTYLING shop on rosenthaler str. and buy something there.
if you are not in berlin make yourself some happy 20 minutes
with the starstyling website. especially when you're neither got
a girlfriend nor a goose at your house.

NINJA TUNE WAX SACK

are you one of the "gefuehlte" 80% djs out there? then you'll know what i'm talking about.
what to do with your vinyl when it's time to leave the house for work?
can't really balance it in a bucket on your head, can you? and since you're not the first one being confronted with this problem, there had been many many and a dozen more smart designers bursting with ideas of how to get your rekkits from a to b.
and oh my gosh - how did they fail! at least the ones who could not afford being too thoughtful cause of the cheap bastards who hired them. thank you reeloop. hello magma. you suck. most of the time.

cases? get the one from HARDWAX. even when it's empty it will weigh more than a fiat 500 with half your family on board. but: it's safe, always to be trusted, always there for you when a chair is missing or somebodie's head has to be smashed in. a knight's armour for your black gold. (deep sigh...)

trolleys? never get them by mailorder if you have not seen them face to face before. will the handle actually fit you or will it rather be a dwarfey than a trolley (ha.ha.ha.)? has anybody at the manufacturer actually ever seen a skateboard before they started bragging with their super polyurethane danny way approved hyper wheels? and so on and so on. stick with UDG for the regular city business. if you've got to travel a lot though, go with a prayer and the strong believe in the good powers of the universe or (see above) take the case and some groupie to carry it for you.

you are athletic, stylish as fuck and never need more than 40 of your favorite whites to make the girls giddy and the guys bow their heads in respect?
ya. get this then. i love this one. it's the best. it's a rucksack.
the ninja tune wax sack. rich material. snap-hook, eye - everything metal. tons of practical lil zipper bags. the softest neoprene handle and the cutest flock of flying ninja eyes embroidered (gasp) to the front. won't safe your vinyl from bumps and beer attacks but hey - this is not where you're going anyway.

here it is. pretty lil princess, aight?
(and yes - i put the record next to it on purpose. double-coolness, know i'm sayin'?)

waxsack.jpg

whatever, if you're looking for a rucksack, take this one, it's real good. that was all i wanted to say really...

WHEN KANO COMES TO TOWN

kanopark3.jpg
shout shout let it all out

just a few more days to go and we can welcome KANO and his crew.
loads of good things happened to the only 19 years old mc maniac
since his first berlin appearance last summer.
his album 'home sweet home' made more than clear that grime is ready
to climb up to the next step.
we're happy to present him right before the start of his huge uk tour
and - we are sure - only a couple of weeks, before he will win
at least one of the mobo awards, he'd been nominated for this year.

get set for
KANO live feat.
DEMON, GHETTO and BIONIX

and hey - what about a little competition?
the first three smartypants who will reply to
adbiz@sickgirls.de
with the right title of the bonus track on 'home sweet home'
will get +1 on the guestlist on friday.
okay. go ahead.

UPDATE
oh - the competition is over by the way.
you were right: the bonus track is indeed called
boys love girls

AND THIS IS IT

please get the complete album at juno mailorder
or directly at 679recordings

and why cant u get it at itunes, too?
anyway - nothing can beat the live experience so you know
where to go tomorrow, don't you?

a strong promising coffe in combination with an old record
that fits you as well as your favorite hoodie, can bring strange
conclusions with them: it's time now.
my personal all time fav top 100 singles list has to be done.
like writing your last will or open your diary to everybody.
should be ready in a fortnight.
dunno how it's going to turn out yet but one thing is for certain,
it will be completely free of beatles and rolling stones tracks.

UP ABOVE AND ALL AROUND

the most sinister and disturbingly meanignful dreams woke me
up early this morning. so i decided to start the day with a song.
sing-a-long...

Sunday morning, praise the dawning
It's just a restless feeling by my side
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It's just the wasted years so close behind
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Sunday morning and I'm falling
I've got a feeling I don't want to know
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It's all the streets you crossed, not so long ago
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Watch out, the world's behind you
There's always someone around you who will call It's nothing at all
Sunday morning Sunday morning Sunday morning

WHEN I SAY GRAVE YOU SAY YARD

mic_man_klein.jpg
damn - here come the graveyard man

i'm really thrilled bout some new talent from so not london, for once.
introducing knife edge records. welcum the birmingham murker MIC MAN and his graveyard crew.
and guess where the label is coming from? yape, it's your favourite pond getting agitated.
tony, the man behind possible music decided to go deeper into the grim grime business
and started knife edge records right here in berlin, presenting some smashing mcs that he found thru strange coincidences in his hometown birmingham.
i can't praise them enuff - the tracks i heard so far got just the right energy to pull everybody onto the dancefloor, no matter if you know about this style or not.
techy2step grime with da most hip hop mc flavour, kickin' ass.
trust me, whenever&wherever i'm playing - i will drop the tunes for sure. rewind!

you can get knife edge rec.001 at tricky tunes and hip hop vinyl.
more releases to follow soon.

go to:
AMUSE ME ENT. Presents 'GLOBAL WARNING'
