Dr. Muldoon & J'da Kut (Sensei.FM) This Friday 30 Nov. Visions Video Bar, Dalston E8 London & 30min Taster Mix

Paul White, Lovely Jon, Pl4ybo1, J'da Kut & Dr. Muldoon


Friday, 30th November, 9pm – 3am

Visions Video Bar, 588a Kingsland Road, Dalston, E8 4AH

£5, free before 10pm


Having had a successful year making heads spin and hips whine at Shoreditch's subterranean sound cave, 3 Blind Mice, Jda Kut and Dr. Muldoon are excited to announce their migration up the Kingsland Road to Visions Video Bar.  Now with a larger venue at their disposal, Jda and Muldoon will be sharing the stage on the 30th with some cats equally committed to sourcing sounds from only the creamiest sonic saucers! Drawing from the funkiest, bass and drum heaviest corners of Hip HopPsychedelia,BeatsBashment, Punk, and Electronica, Jda, Muldoon and guests will be dropping hits – esoteric and classic – from all over our Global Village!
Top of the bill is London’s esteemed beatsmith and DJ, Paul White. With a swathe of critically acclaimed LPs under his belt and a world-wide fan base stretching from Osaka to Ontario,Paul’s intricately layered funkscapes have been graced by everyone from Rap’s man-of-the-moment,Danny Brown, to London’s princess of synthpunk Charli XCX. With his formidable record collection and penchant for clatteringly cosmic beats, we expect Mr White’s selections will keep you scratching your head and twizzling your lowermost like a hopelessly crazed crack-monkey!
Acting as the event’s in-house audio-visual occultist, B-movie-collector-come-exotic-record-hound,Lovely Jon, will also be blessing Visions’ basement. Famed for mixes such as House of Sleaze andGoddamn Motherfuckers Burn in Hell, alongside his Jigoku audio-visual collaborations with Cherrystones, few crate-diggers or cineastes can match Jon’s grasp on their respective corners’ otherworldly offerings. Promising a unique journey down avenues of movie and music history seldom travelled, armed with a projector and turntables, Jon will be spinning a furious selection of PunkRapDub and Rock to a frenzied montage of his globally sourced B-movie imagery.
Adding a dash of youthful irreverence to the mix will be Brixton’sPL4YBO1, a denizen of Rap’s refreshingly supple online generation: aware of the genre’s heritage but boldly disloyal to its traditions. With this in mind, expect sounds threaded with contorting 808 bass kicks and sizzurp drenched synths, from the Beastie Boys to Wacka Flocka Flamevia the Geto Boys.

POTPURRI Taster Mix – Muldoon & J’da Kut

A 30 minute whiff from the Potpurri basket. Featuring tracks by Arrows, Gaslamp Killer, Kendrick Lamar, Eprom, Nas, Tame Impala, Com Truise, L.I.E.S, Erick Travis, AG, DJ Assault and more!

The evening’s residents will likewise be serving Hip-Hop inflected treasures from sonic environs old, fresh and forward looking… Aside masterful turntable skills which have seen her rock the Roundhouse with Kashmere and compete with the formidable Invincible Armour crew at last year’s World DMCs, Jda Kut's taste for Turkish Psych – a native Anatolian, Ms. Kut has an enviably deep crate of directly sourced 45s! – bassy Hip Hop and booty shaking Bashment evokes an experience akin to a Brixton Block Party in an Istanbul Kasbah! Similarly known for crafting inter-cultural networks with his hands, Dr. Muldoon’s peculiar knack for meshing genres across diverse temporal and regional boundaries means his sets are never short of imagination. Anticipate seasonings of the unexpected then amidst this self-proclaimed Heston-Blumenthal-of-the-Rap-game’s inventive platters of PsychedeliaBeatsHip Hop and Electronica.
So, come join us Friday the 30th of November from 9 'til 3 at Visions Video Bar, 588a Kingsland Road, Dalston, E8 4AH !!!

100 UK Graffiti Artists New Graffiti Book by Frank "Steam156" Malt & Old School Interview with Steam156 on ITCH FM

& Old School The Kool Skool Radio Interview with Steam156 on ITCH FM

IZ The Wiz R.I.P. & Steam156 in the Bronx early 1990's

Steam156 is well known as one of (if not the most) prolific Graffiti Documentors. He has been instrumental in the promotion of Graffiti in the European wide scene & one of the 1st Europeans to make links with NY & L.A. Artists as a documentor. He began documenting Graffiti in the UK in around 1986, was an early contributor to Phase 2’s iGTimes graffiti magazine, and went on to work as the Graffiti Editor at the legendary Hip-Hop Connection Magazine, Knowledge Magazine. He is also well known for his Graffiti Slide Shows and more recently, his voluminous site www.aerosolplanet.com, and the Aerosol Planet DVD series.

His 1st hard cover book 100 UK Graffiti Artists Graffiti Book has a release date end of November 2012 with a Retail Price of Approximately £37.50 $45.00

Book Description
"Simply opening these covers commits you to being dazzled by 100 of the UK's top "writers" and street artists, immersing yourself in the styles, past and present, which make UK street art great. Upon its arrival in the UK from New York in the 1980s, graffiti rapidly spread across the island, infecting the youth like a stylistic virus. Out of the early days came names that would become part of UK writing legend, such as Mode2, Zaki Dee 163, Choci Roc, Goldie, and Robbo. Alongside works by these pioneers, we sweep across the whole of the UK, taking in Scotland and Wales, running through the nineties and right up to the modern day when more advanced, technical graffiti, wheat pasting, and stenciling are the new media on the street. This collection includes works by Aroe, Skore, Xens and Kem, Mef, and more. Guiding us through this review is Steam 156, who was there at the start and is still as passionate as ever. This is a must-have collection for graffiti writers and fans around the world." - Schiffer Books Website
