Police Brutality

Last night Pete Rock and Smif N Wessun were in the midst of celebrating the release of their new collaborative project Monumental when the police swarmed the concert.

"UK DJ/Presented Jay Diamond released the 8 minute video, showing NYPD brutally attack a young man. It’s unknown what sparked the melee, but the video shows that many of the NYPD officers were being aggressive when trying to disperse the crowd."

This shit is pretty out of order!!

Onra and Quetzal representin'

This is my first post for Fresh2Death and I thought there is no better way of introducing my musical taste than by what I have been listening to lately and that is these amazing producer duo Onra and Quetzal (a.k.a. Al Quetz). Onra french hip hop beat maker, Al Quetz more of a character in the shadow not too much info around and certainly not highly commercial, doing good shit for those who appreciate. Onra and Quetzal put out this Tribute album featuring the most interesting fusion of music, from jazzy soulful tunes that remind me of a smoother and darker Mayer Hawthorne to beats that are intricate mixtures of afro-beats combined with some trip-hop and reggae greatness more for those Ayatollah lovers.

Together, I am not shy to say they might be on to something massive, maybe even bigger and better than J-Dilla.

Their album Tribute is features on their myspace:
Gotta Have It from Tribute 2006

Summer Mixes

Now that the radio show is finished. (Note: you can check out all the old shows here ). I will be starting a new fortnightly series of themed mixes much like the radio show. To start off with two summer mixes that I made the other day. The 'softcore' mix is full of more soulful beats and the 'hardcore' mix is full of more hard hitting beats.



Here is another great summertime track:
