Droppin' Science:Mr Thing, Matman & Daredevil March 3rd 2012 @ Vibe Bar

This Saturday 3rd March London's freshest hip hop party Droppin' Science returns to Vibe Bar Live, where we will be joined once again by one of our favourite guest Djs, the highly skilled Mr Thing (Extended Players/DMC Champ).

There's good reason we keep getting Mr Thing back to rock with us, as he never fails to raise the roof with his flawless selection and skill on the turntables! He will be joined by Droppin' Science residents Matman & Daredevil -both DMC champion djs themselves, if you've seen them before then you know you are in store for a fast paced selection of party bangers mixed & chopped in style all night long!

As "the greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th" we decided to pay tribute to the late great Christopher Wallace by collaborating with established London-based artist Amar Stewart on this month's flyer, and he's blessed us with this superb portrait of the Notorious one. You can of course also expect to hear plenty of Biggie classics on the night!

You can also check out our live mixshow on the day of the event, The Droppin' Science Show presents the most up to date selection of fresh hip hop you will hear, mixed & cut by DS residents Matman & Daredevil. We broadcast live from London's Upper Playground Store in central London (31 Kingly St, off Carnaby St.) from 4-6pm - pop in or watch & listen live via

DJ Matman - Funky Love Tonic 2 [Stream/Download]

Just in time for valentine's day! Here's my sequel to 'Funky Love Tonic' - a mix I uploaded back in 2009 featuring some of my favourite funky love songs. In keeping with the spirit of the original, I've kicked it off with a Lee fields track, sneaked in a Dilla beat, used vinyl to record from where possible and kept my usual fancy turntable trickery to a minimum, it's all about the music here!
