Madlib & Cut Chemist to Headline “Timeless” Concert Series

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , on Monday, February 2, 2009 by Tim Althaus


It turns out that two of the most consistently innovative producers in Hip-Hop will be headlining the same show together. The “Timeless” Concert Series is a four part series, that will be going down February 1st and every third Sunday after that. There is a different DJ headlining each night, the first one is Cut Chemist alongside a 15-piece orchestra, the second show (a tribute to Dilla) will be DJ Houseshoes along with a 36-piece orchestra (of L.A., formerly Detroit), the third will be Madlib with a 30-piece orchestra and the last DJ will be J Rocc along side David Axelrod and a 26-piece orchestra. To be honest this concert series sounds like it is going to be something that is beyond words to explain. I am almost to the point of weeping because I don’t live in California.

Jurassic 5 EP being re-issued for 10th anniversary

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , , , on Wednesday, November 19, 2008 by Tim Althaus


It’s been 10 long years since Chali 2na, Akil, Mark 7even, Zaakir (Soup), Cut Chemist & DJ Nu Mark bust onto the hip-hop scene with their legendary Jurassic 5 EP. The Jurassic 5 EP was as close to a perfect record as you could get, hard hitting drums with great samples and absolutely amazing lyrics.

To celebrate the eleventh anniversary of this modern day classic, the EP is being re-released (it had been out of print since 2004) with additional bonus tracks (there are 29 tracks total on 2 discs), as well as a DVD with live performances, a documentary and the video for “Concrete Schoolyard”. I don’t know about you, but this package seems to have a great deal of added value here. For all of you die-hard J5 fans (I happen to be a pretty damn big one) this is a great item for you to add to the collection.jurassic5b1
