Team Time.

Over the last two weeks there have been a few guests visiting brad and i up here in Liverpool. Cem was here for 5 days and then pretty much straight after his departure, shaun and mat came to visit. It was two weeks of mayhem and jokes! We went to two big events both weekends where we saw acts such as High Contrast, Distance, Rusko and Dillinja. Both the nights were good and the days in-between were also filled with other extravagant shiz. It was a big look having a visit from everyone as Livepool got to experience how we roll.. particularly at the Rusko event where we had the crowd on lock! ..many people weren't ready ;)
As i said 'nuff jokes.

There are tooo many stories to list but i need to drop a few.
To explain the pics with shit in them, a few of my uni people had planted some around the place! So when i first brought mat to introduce everybody i was like what the flip?!
Mat was astounded and i was getting bare mad.
POO all over the place! lol.
We shortly figured out that they were (very effective and accurate) immitations created by soya sauce and tissue paper. Classic uni tricks.
Mat and I played ignorant to knowing this for a while and then just before leaving to go out, we created our own.. on a plate then left it for the others to eat that shit up! :)

Later that evening when shaun had arrived we were chilling in my room and were going to go some rave but couldn't be bothered due to it being 12.30ish already.
We got some supplies from tescos, cranked and did some classic team-youtube-mixing..
It was absolutely major and between the four of us, dropped about a 5 hour set covering 'nuff genres. People were coming and going and shaun and mat got to meet a few classic characters.
Bare jokes were had with hit after hit seamlessly mixed.. as you can imagine :)

Anyways enough writing, basically it was a great couple weeks and people need to get (back) up here!
I couldn't be bothered to sperate all the events and pictures so i've just jammed them all together. There are ALOT of them. Enjoy.




























Shout-outs to all!

Hmmm i could do with a poster of Dilla on my 'Wall of Inspiration' but is it really worth that much?

Actual Chris Brown n Rihanna footage

Some Vintage Dub

taking it back to the originators...the three kings...real Dub.

Lee Scratch Perry King Tubby The Scientist

King Tubby....


Seen to many as one of the clearest pioneers of the dub, back when delay took days to compose properly from dusty metal boxes, Perry learned to master it all, and produce some classic Dub sounds capes, with fans such as Rusko taking influence from the old, and putting it to the new.






The Scientist....


This man has made too many albums, contributing to the dub world, and you can catch a lot of his material on GTA , as a lot of his tracks were placed on the K-Jah radio station. After being kept as an apprecntice to King Tubby ^ he moved onto his own sound scapes and made history of his own.







Lee Scratch Perry....


Seen as the man to actually create Reggae off one of his own titles,Dub from his own mixer, who also worked with Bob Marley, and wasleader of the classic band The Upsetters, with fresh production techniques along with his crazy eccentric character,i cant really miss this man out.

another stupidly large back catalogue of production notes follows from this man, and bare weird studio sotories...including some about objects he'd request during a recording....like a brick, so that he could look at it, and be influenced......way to much green..
