Virtuoso & Snowgoons "Statue" Music Video produced by Sicknature of Snowgoons 

Big Bang Records presents the long awaited video for the fan favorite track "Statue" off of Snowgoons latest album Kraftwerk (Goon MuSick). "Statue" is a monstrous collaboration that links musical mastermind Sicknature from Denmark and Boston lyrical legend Virtuoso. Virtuoso tears this track into tiny pieces with his trademark verbal acrobatics over a rock solid boom-bap backdrop. This track is one of the best selling songs in Snowgoons and Virtuoso's respective careers and has been setting fire to speakers across the globe. The video was directed and edited by Marsay Seymour (20/20 Vizin) and Virtuoso himself. This is just a taste of the fire to come as Big Virt and Snowgoons are in the process of making an entire album together to be released in early 2012.

Available on itunes

Junk Science & Scott Thorough f/Homeboy Snadman "You Could Have That" (Download) 

Here's a little background info about the song courtesy of Mike from Junk Science:

"Me and Snafu met Homeboy Sandman when we were all guests on Billy Jam's show on WFMU last Spring. I had baked cupcakes to bring to the radio station because I heard there were going to be a lot of rappers there and I thought it would be funny to do something so un-hip-hop, cause rappers are always mean to each other unnecessarily. So I was going to come through like, 'hey guys, I baked cupcakes for everybody.' Anyway, while we were up there, Billy played 'Mean Mug' from Homeboy Sandman's album and I was like 'Oh, he's on that shit too.' We ended up going to his album release party and he came to ours, and so when Snafu and Scott started making the beats for 'Phoenix Down' we immediately thought of getting Boy Sand on the album. Sometime over the summer we got up and recorded this one."

Junk Science & Scott Through's "Phoenix Down" EP will be available on 5-31-2011 on Modern Shark..

Elzhi to Release Free LP "ELmatic" an Illmatic Tribute 



To say that Elzhi’s “ELmatic” has been a labor of love would be an understatement. The idea was first broached years ago by DJ House Shoes and discussed and bandied about incessantly since. Though the concept was unrealized for what seemed like ages; years went by, life got in the way, recording and touring with Slum Village got in the way and as more time passed, desperate fans continued to wait (albeit impatiently) for news and updates on the project.

Well, at last, the long wait is over, as Elzhi has finally completed “ELmatic” and the long-wait fans endured will prove to be well-worth it, as Elzhi will release the project for free on 5-10-2011 on his own site; the LP is being released for free by Elzhi as a dedication to his fans for their patience.

Nas tributes have been done before, but it’s safe to say, never in the manner in which Elzhi attacks it. “ELmatic” is a game-changing effort on a few different levels, not only is it genre-defying, but it finds Elzhi in his lyrical prime and rather then expressing himself over Nas’ original instrumentals, Elzhi enlisted the famous Detroit ensemble Will Sessions (a six-piece band who has cultivated a reputation in the Detroit area for being able to meticulously replay Nas’ instrumentals from scratch and who produced the endeavor) and recorded the entire project with only live-instrumentation, which gives the project an undeniably plush and unique sound and dare we say even adds an updated flair to the original’s hall-of-fame lineup of producers. These new flourishes can be heard as Will Sessions add even more instrumental interludes (sometimes mid-track) and over special drops from artists such as Pete Rock and DJ House Shoes. While guest features are sparse, Royce 5’9 and Mint Condition’s Stokely both grace “Life’s A Bitch” and Amp Fiddler plays keyboards on “The World is Yours”.

While immersing himself into the recording of “ELmatic,” Elzhi underwent a series of professional and personal struggles that have made this project even more gratifying for him. After a nearly decade long stint as a member of the beloved group Slum Village and numerous hit singles (including “Selfish” f/Kanye West and John Legend and “Tainted” f/Dwele ) in July of 2010 Elzhi was forced to re-start his solo career after discovering a variety of unfair business practices by Slum Village’s record label and T3. These professional and personal trails and tribulations are certainly an audible under-current on “ELmatic,” as it gives the project that much more urgency and edge; and undisputable air of rebirth.

With the support of his new management by music executive and artist manager Jae Barber of The JAE.B Group and Will Sessions “ELmatic” is finally completed. With his new website and a once again flourishing solo career fans can anticipate a newly reinvigorated Elzhi and one who is anxious to share his talents with the world.
