I remember hearing this song on the radio when I was growing up. I always loved it! I’m even more proud that this group was Canadian, but also based out of Toronto..My hometown!!! Check the remix! It’s Bass is Base – I Cry vs Lucy Pearl – Don’t Mess With My Man! Lucy Pearl also put out some classic music produced by Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Raphael Saadiq. What a super group with Dawn Robinson!!! Anyways, here it is…
So this past week was a couple of DJ competitions in Toronto. First on Wednesday September 25, there was the Canadian National DMC’s. For those of you who don’t know what the DMC’s are all about, check: http://www.dmcdjchamps.com/index.php
Congrats to: http://www.vekked.com/ on successfully defending his Canadian DMC champion title, and securing his 3rd title as Canadian DMC champion. His skills and work ethic speaks for itself! Congratulations to all the other competitors who put their names out there, and put up their sets to really demonstrate how much skills Canadian turntablists have!
On Thursday night was the Red Bull Thre3Style Competition, Toronto regionals. The place was packed, and people were ready to take in some DJs!!! It was a very interesting competition. While I thought some DJ’s sounded very synonymous, others really stood out. It was very interesting to see various DJs takes on everything from mixing, to tone play, turntablism, scratching, etc. I did enjoy all of the sets, and took what I could from them. I would like to congratulate: http://djmrock.com/ for taking the 2013 Toronto Red Bull Thre3Style Champion title. His set was amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed what he had to offer. Congrats to all the other competitors who showed that this city is full of talent!!
I loved this track a lot! Its from 93! Maybe I’m stuck there..LOL. Check out this remix over Ryan Leslie’s beat for You Be Killin’ Em. Ryan Leslie is an amazing producer! I remember when Fabolous dropped this track, it was on repeat for me! As usual…Enjoy, share, rinse and repeat! one
Today we get to visit the new KOPS Records!!! KOPS II !!! Yesterday was the grand opening, and today we get to invade the space. Catch me on the 1′s and 2′s from 1-4PM playing nothing but hip hop music. I’m playing music strictly from the golden age era of hip hop…Should be tons of fun! Come check out the Cypher Crew throwing down some freestyle action! This event is held by a grassroots organization called H3 (HIP HOP HEADZ). I am very glad to be rolling with these guys! We have been putting on events for a few years now, which has been an outlet for many artists to showcase their music and talent. It’s a great way of giving back to the hip hop community, here in Toronto. It’s always fun going to a new record store, and seeing what they have in store! Nothing like DITC (DIGGING IN THE CRATES) on a Sunday afternoon! KOPS has been an amazing store to shop at in the past! They have everything from rock to breaks, and a wonderful section of 45′s!!! I’ll be going in with my Serato, but I’ll be coming home with wax!! Come through, and support your local record stores and artists! See you there!!!
**SPECIAL THANKS TO MC FUBB WHO HAS BEEN HEADING H3, AND TO KOPS RECORDS WHO HAS SUPPORTED THE CYPHER IN THE PAST, SPECIFICALLY AT IT’S INCEPTION**
