ROCKY HORROR HOLOCAUST SHOW

i visited the HOLOCAUST monument in berlin today.
at first it looked ridiculously friendly in the golden sunlight with
legions of tourists surrounding and intruding it, using the bench-like stones for sitting or sunbathing or even for posing for holiday pictures by standing right on them before the witless idiots got scared away by serious looking security personnel.
when i entered the field of silent monoliths myself i forgot about blue skies and silly tourists immediately: the place is intimidating enough to leave you alienated and appropriately horrified at least for a little while before you'll get caught by it's architectural beauty and fascinating serial dissymetrie.
so i had to do what everybody does: take some pics.
(with my mobile phone camera btw so pls excuse)

INTO THE GROOVE

grab the november issue of GROOVE MAGAZIN and find
the SICK GIRLS in bed with SASHA from JAHCOOZI.
we're chatting music, life and beyond but please
don't nail us down too seriously to the given quotes,
remember: it's the media...
(we love it, we hate it, we're part of it, so wtf)

WOOHAA!
got to speak some more words regarding our Groove session.
just bought the magazine myself and had a good lough reading
what we did and - more important - definitely didn't say in the interview...
i know it's always difficult for a journalist to pin down exactly who said what when you're dealing with more than one interview partner, left alone three talkative girls. still it would have been better, if mr.groove would have recorded the talk instead of only taking notes. please excuse in case anybody feels insulted or misunderstood - most of our quotes are chopped and screwed and cut down to nonsense really. one thing though i would say over and over again:
some label should get us to make compilations for them.
coz we can do it better.

RUB IT IN

get this ace 30minutes mix by DJ AYERS.
he's the mixmaster at THE RUB in NYC, the night of the IT'S THE MOTHERFUCKING REMIX mash-up kings.
if you happen to live straight up north somewhere catch him live
on tour in sweden & denmark in november.

or what about this rather old but still kickin' mix of my
currently most favorite american party crasher LOW BUDGET.
get the new mix BMORE GUTTER MUSIC as mentioned before at HIP HOP VINYL or by mailorder somewhere.

HEY DUDE

dudesep_web.jpg
DUDES LOVE GIRLS

i'm a bit slow sometimes so please excuse this be-lated notion of
a new cool ep on SHADETEK RECORDS.
after the great GIRLS EP with my ever so favourite JAHCOOZI BLACK BARBIE remix by MDSLKTR on it (which i lost in some club during a gig, damn. u can still get it though, for instance at hip hop vinyl) the DUDES EP is just the right step to take. with first class contributions by our crazy french friend PARA ONE, TAME ONE from LEX REC and many more, it delivers the perfect material for sick girls and bass boys.
here is a lil snippet for promotional use only, you hear me?
go and get the record, it's worth it and have you seen the amazing artwork?

LISTEN TO DR MUZIK FEAT TAME ONE

thx to la BIG FIMP for dipping my nose into this.

WALK THIS WAY

i'm treating my mobile phone with due respect.
the smart little trooper bears much more knowledge than i can actually handle and most of the time it must feel utterly unchallenged because i'm only ever using it to CALL people, how dull. the vtt technical research center of finland will help. soon your mobile phone will be busy all day learning about your special way of carrying yourself:

"Researchers at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland have developed a prototype of a cell phone that uses motion sensors to record a user's walking pattern of movement, or gait. The device then periodically checks to see that it is still in the possession of its legitimate owner, by measuring the current stride and comparing it against that stored in its memory."
read on

and while your phone takes care for itself, SIEMENS is printing batteries and displays on nearly everything for cheap. open your fridge and see your yoghurt getting bossy:
TAKE ME! TAKE ME!

BOND TURNS BLONDE

007_6_danielcraig.jpg
SUPER SHARP SHOOTER

finally. fresh announcement: DANIEL CRAIG is the new JAMES BOND.
coincidentially i've seen his movie LAYER CAKE just yesterday
and was quite impressed already with DANIEL's straight blue eyes and
nicely defined body (purr purr).
good choice for the MI5 even if he carries a slight second hand feeling about him,
considering that his morning tea had been served by ms HEIKE MAKATSCH for a while.
what about another german experience, Daniel, hm?

ps: we're sorry ROBBIE, the better man wins...

WAS MACHT EIGENTLICH...

SO SOLID CREW lately?

here you go:
"There were interesting scenes in a London court room yesterday, when So Solid Crew’s Megaman, who is up on charges of ordering a man’s killing, defended himself by singing his lyrics to the courtroom in an attempt to deny that they glorified violence. Dwayne Vincent then drew a line between himself the “businessman” and Megaman the “musician”, and then insisted that when he was speaking about shooting people, he was “using it as a metaphor. I’m saying I’m hitting them with a lot of hits in the music industry.” He then also denied that they ever had any fans in south London who were likely to commit violence, claiming that most of their fans were actually busy at “universities and colleges.”

ADIDAS HOODIE HOP

jme_adidasweb.jpg
seriously serious - JME goes RUN DMC

dresdner bahnhof? what an enormous location. had adidas written all over. literally.
note: never wear an adidas logo jacket when you go to a sponsored event like this. the leaf was a bit over-exposed (and i usually REALLY like adidas) which would have been okay if all the good company money hadn't only been spent on visuals but also on a better pa. nonetheless the party was great because - yes, you know it - LADY FURY, JME, SKEPTA, TINCHY and tiny tiny PLASTICMAN took the stage and the audience by storm. mr.shadetek provided a perfect intro, middle and outro for the two (yes, two! and now you're jealous, aight?) performances of the bouncing lot and all the girls in the room weren't sure if they would rather take JME or his brother SKEPTA home, both cute to the max. if anybody scored or not and whatever happened in the hotel after the show we leave to The Mirror and your imagination.

50 CENT - TAKE OFF YOUR SHIRT, DAMMIT!

gunit_jamaicaweb.jpg

da SICK GALS went gangsta yesterday night at columbia halle.
no picture-taking allowed inside so we have to keep you busy with
this certified be-sweated bandana cloth right from the backstage area
at 50 CENT and G UNITS big doodaa performance. it has been touched by
50 himself or at least LLOYD BANKS and maybe YOUNG BUCK as well.
we got sure friends at the backstages all around the world, feel me?
and the concert? f*** should we know? you could hardly look at the stage. your eyes got smacked by mr. swarovski and lady bling bling every second and even our ol'mates MOBB DEEP were fancy-dressed in strass-embroidered bullet proof vests, saying MOPP DEEP in pink on the front. huge. sparkling. 50 was huge, too. what is this guy doing all day long? not sitting in the studio next to DRE, thats for sure. big piece of meat he is, only muscles, heavy arms and a chest like a opera singer. bet he got his own gym at the crib and all the dancers from the candy shop as his personal trainers. speaking of which: no CANDYSHOP, no JUS'A LIL'BIT. just a handful of hits and then the show was over. had to be finished by ten i guess due to all the little walking basecaps who still smelled of pacifiers & pampers (is this actually what they all want to hide with their baggy trousers?).
good show though, lots of free water all over and the whole G UNIT right in front of you, bigger than tv anyway.

thanks to mister S. for the tix & the date.
thanks to missus S. for da lift.

GRIME WATCH GERMANY

* MUTE RECORDS has licensed ROLL DEEP's album 'DOWN AT THE DEEP END' from relentless rec. for a german release date in the near future.

* WARNER scheduled the german release date of THE MITCHELL BROTHERS' album for november. THE MITCHELL BROTHERS will perform live in berlin on november 18 for INTRO INTIM at PALAIS DER KULTURBRAUEREI and guess who are the support djs? yess - it's your sickedest sistas...
we feel honored - thanx SL! KANO's official german album release will follow in the first half of 2006. get HOME SWEET HOME triple!!!vinyl at HIP HOP VINYL!

* ISLAND/UNIVERSAL still has got no definite release date for LADY SOV's album to offer due to new tracks by MISSY, NEPTUNES, JAY Z and GOD that have to be included but are not approved by the lady herself yet. do we still talk GRIME here?

* JUICE MAGAZINE is getting strong on GRIME in their october issue. there's LADY SOV & ROLL DEEP features sticking out, a MITCHELL BRO's review and both, mitchell bro's and kano's longplayers can be found in the 'redaktions-charts'.

* INTERSCOPE GERMANY felt the urge to upgrade WILL SMITH'S new 12" PARTY STARTER with some funny remixes including a CO-P GRIMEY MIX which we would rather call a HEAVY CRUNKER since we are missing at least 45 bpm.
