Droppin’ Science w/ Kidkanevil @ Vibe Bar June 5th 2010

Droppin’ Science is back to rock the Vibe Bar on Saturday June 5th.

This time we’re joined on the turntables by First Word Record’s very own Kidkanevil.

A bit about KidKanevil… Hailing from Tokyorkshire, DJ/Producer Kidkanevil first came to prominence with the release of his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Problems & Solutions’ back in 2007, and has since gone from strength to strength.

Now three albums deep, his latest LP ‘Basho Basho’ was released earlier this year to great critical acclaim! Check it out over at: http://kidkanevil.bandcamp.com/

KidK is fresh from a stint at this year’s Red Bull Music Academy and ready to unleash a barrage of new music and collaborations on the world. His unique productions & club-quaking DJ sets show influence of hip hop, dubstep, jungle & more!

“By far one of the UK’s most original producers.” – Hip Hop Connection

“5/5″ – DJ magazine

“Something truly memorable.” – URB

“Hip-hop genius.” – ATM

“A sonic visionary.” – iDJ

“Basho Basho deserves to put kidkanevil right up there with Flying Lotus.” – Knowledge Magazine

“Thunderous…a vivid display of dexterous beat construction and cultural experimentation. An incredible amount of character bubbles at the surface of evey track.” – okayplayer

“Sparse constellations of lethally-sharpened drum sounds flying around the listener act as a single structure of seemingly impossible strength.” – Wire Magazine

As always your Droppin’ Science heavyweight residents Matman, Nickname & Daredevil will also be on-hand to tear up the dance!

Vibe Bar, Brick Lane April 3 2010 8pm – 1am

Little Brother - 'Curtain Call' [Download]



The first single from the new and final Little Brother Album.

Official blurb:

Critically acclaimed rap duo Little Brother are back and ready to takeover speakers for the final time together with their new album, LeftBack. Dropping on April 20th via Hall of Justus, LeftBack will mark the end of an illustrious career by partners in rhyme Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh. The album features production from the likes of Khyrsis, Denaun Porter, J.Bizness and guest vocals from Torae, Truck North, Jozeemo, Chaundon, Median, and more. The send-off for the North Carolina hip-hop heavyweights begins with the release of "Curtain Call," the poetically titled first single from LeftBack. Rapper Big Pooh sets the tone for the album by declaring that "this is it, the last monologue / last act in the play, you could say the epilogue." A booming synth line, driving bass and staccato drum pattern intertwine to provide the backdrop for the occasion, while Phonte drives home the album's message by rapping "You know we don't quit / but when it's curtain call then that's all you gonna get." The song "basically sums up the history of our career as Little Brother," says the duo. "This is the last first single you will hear from Little Brother."

I rocked up just in time to catch the end of Eglo record's Fatima's set, her voice sounding just as powerful live as it is on wax. If ya don't know, check out her track 'kleer' produced by Funkineven, & preview her incredible-sounding forthcoming ep here featuring Dam Funk. Next up K-lashnekoff performed a short set including classics such as 'Murder' & his take on 'Welcome to Jamrock' - a few embarrassing slips aside (forgetting the lyrics to his new single probably wasn't a career highlight) -he was a welcome surprise, & reminded me just how powerful his voice & flow are, I'll definitely be checking for his new LP out soon.

After K-Lash there was a good hour & a half wait 'til the main act.. I heard many impatient comments from the audience, but I was personally happy as a pig in shit wildin' out to a killer set by Benji B - a fine choice of underground hip hop classics (big props to anyone dropping 'The Enemy' by Big L & Fat Joe), some funk/disco rarities & a good half hour of well-chosen Dilla productions.

And so on to the man of the moment, Jay Electronica eventually stepped to the stage fully suited up, & proceeded to give one of the finest performances I've heard for a long time to be delivered by a simple MC & DJ combo (not that the dj did much!). His delivery was clear, his energy was as up as you'd expect from a man riding the wave of newly found stardom, the crowd was super hyped, & dude straight killed it. I was much-relieved to discover him to be as great a performer as he is an MC, & would probably make a half-decent comedian, offering shots of jack to nearby punters, & getting away with asking all the ladies in the house to make noise if they enjoy a little mild choking during sex! Jay performed a dope selection of his material, but of course Exhibit's A & C were the joints that really shut it down, with most of the crowd rapping along to the whole tracks (big up London for knowing our shit!). If he makes a return to these shores anytime soon, don't miss out.

Peep the video above, taken from the second night's performance (& pinched with love from DJ Semtex's blog) for a taste - & download his recent 'Victory' mixtape free of charge here.
