VINYL SESSION @ CAFE WENDEL (Berlin) - 15/12/2012

Presented by Afromaniac & BeatPete (HitYaWitThat)
Guest DJ: Djeez (HitYaWitThat)


Like Showbiz and AG, Twit One and Lazy Jones like their pockets fat not flat. 
But as fate would have it, this is not always the case with these two young musicians 
from Cologne. That's why they call their new band Flatpocket and have recorded 
a concept album based on this topic, titled „Geldfundphantasyen“

The View From The Other Side: J-Dilla A European Remembrance

About The Documentary:

The View From The Other Side: J-Dilla A European Remembrance 

All the greats have great stories about James Dewitt Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla; 
now it's the turn of a continent.

Musician; Producer; MC; and Visionary: J Dilla's short but prolific life span has impacted music fans the world over.

A celebration of his life and times, Director Shernay LaTouche gives us: The View from the Other Side: J-Dilla A European Remembrance.

Filmed over a two and a half year period (2009 -- 2012) Shernay LaTouche travelled to four major European cities; London, Paris, Lausanne (Switzerland) and Berlin to share the stories of dedicated J Dilla fans and investigate the legacy left behind.
The journey led to the discovery of underground cultures and communities, with each having initiated their own celebratory response to Yancey's musical legacy. 

Onra, Chief, BeatPete (HitYaWitThat), Lefto, Mr. Thing, Hazeem, Saneyes, Mr. Comb, 
Willey Sunshine, Paul "JukeBoxx" Asante,...

Directed & Produced by Shernay LaTouche

Alongside DJ Jamad (Afromentals/The Aphilliates), Locsmif entered the mixtape scene in 2004 with the highly-acclaimed  Outskirts: The Unofficial Lost OutKast Remixes, an OutKast remix CD, consequently expanding Locsmif's fan base and laying the foundation for his widely received Divine Dezignz series. In early 2005, Locsmif's Divine Dezignz 1: Discovery, a collection of his original soul and hip-hop instrumentals, made its debut at iTunes and was featured on three consecutive iTunes Street Official Mixtapes. Adding upon the success of Discovery, Locsmif secured a national distribution deal with Fontana through High Wire Music to release Divine Dezignz 1.2: Re-Discovered. Guests on the record include Lil Sci (from Scienz Of Life and Sol Uprising), Stahhr 
(from MF Doom / King Geedorah’s “Take Me To Your Leader” LP), and others.

Maloon TheBoom is a Zürich based Producer/Musician.
He's going to release his first Ep called "Critical Mind EP".
Maloon TheBoom first came in touch with producing in 2008.
His unique groove and his combination of crispy banging drums and smooth deep 
melodic coalesced with brilliant use of samples sets him upon others.
Clearly influenced by the golden age of Hip Hop and Jazz/Soul/Blues, he creates an individual music style in a uncommercial musical movement.
His forthcoming Ep includes a couple of fresh remixes and tasty tunes.
Critical Mind offers great music for anyone.
“The message coming with the Ep is to think critical - meaning that everyone 
should have his OWN opinion basing on love and a critical view of the world. 
This is what I want to express with my music on this Ep.“
Maloon TheBoom
“If you haven't heard of this young talented producer before, you definitely should check him out!“ Boyoom Connective
