Is Perception KING or QUEEN? Or, a blurred line in between? That line can sometimes best be defined as “MAGIC”. The art of magic is displayed by slight of hand, and by natural forces being influenced by mysterious powers. In this video demonstration for “The Magician” the mystery remains, but the veil is slightly lowered.

MP3: Stu Bangas & Vanderslice - "No More Mr. Nice Guy"

Producers Stu Bangas & Vanderslice will release their newest album, Diggaz With Attitude, on August 28th via Man Bites Dog Records featuring verses from Ill Bill, Vinnie Paz, Esoteric, Celph Titled, Blaq Poet, and many more. To get you in the mood, they're highlighting a new track, "No More Mr. Nice Guy" from the mixtape they just released.

The mixtape, which is called Brutal Blends, intends to direct fans back to their previous work. With the help of Dusty Gems, they created a seamless collection of never-heard-before songs featuring Action Bronson, Vast Aire, Ill Bill, Planet Asia, and Wais P.

"No More Mr. Nice Guy," produced by Vanderslice, blends a slow, purposeful beat with a wailing electric guitar riff. "The inspiration for the beat was based off my affinity for glam rock," says Vanderslice, and explained that the mood of the beat was what inspired the song title. The track features West Coast MC Planet Asia, long considered a legend in indie rap circle since the 90's. Planet Asia's militant mindset provides the perfect complement to the provocative mood of "No More Mr. Nice Guy."

@AdamsWorldBlog Weekly 7/30 - Shots, Streams & Hippies

Welcome to the new week everyone. This past weekend was the annual Pequot Library fundraiser sale. Tents upon tents were filled with books, albums, and movies, at dirt cheap prices. This means that in addition to my normal work stack of CDs, I now have nearly a dozen other albums to go through, as well. Truthfully, most of what I picked up are what I call "hole fillers." They're albums friends/rommates have had that I never picked up, or albums that I had in another format that I wanted on CD.

Some music you might want to check out is included in my review of Warped Tour, which features streams of songs from three bands, and leads off this week's update. I also have an interview with Klokwize in this week's update, a Vid Pick from longtime B-Lister Homeboy Sandman, and, of course, a brand new Pop Shots to get your week started right!

If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and enjoy!

Warped Tour 2012 - A Tour For Discovery  

A unique aspect of Warped Tour is that they don’t post artist set times until the doors open. When I spoke with Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman about this last year he stated “I still think it’s important for kids to come and learn, so we always have to manage it so that kids come early and wander around and run into a band they might like. We want to try to keep some sense of adventure to shows.” With this year’s lineup he’s accomplished that goal in spades.

Pop Shots - New Additions

Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Mariah Carey joining American Idol, to Rob Thomas and Billie Joe Armstrong joining The Voice, to Lady Gaga joining the cast of Machete Killer, and since it’s Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.

Klokwize - Bringing The Hood & The Hippies Together

What a person listens to says a lot about them. According to Klokwize, when a person picks up his album, “it’s saying that people can color outside the lines.” Klokwize has been coloring outside the lines for years, crossing genres until he came up with his perfect sound. That sound is something he calls Hood Hippie, which can be loosely described as A Tribe Called Quest meets Sublime meets Shwayze, led by a gravelly voiced emcee. Hood Hippie also happens to be the name of Klokwize’s official debut album.

This week I caught up with Klokwize to discuss what Hood Hippie is all about, the very personal nature of his music, and why he decided he needed a band. Klokwize also revealed a career affirming moment that took place in, of all places, his mother’s attic.
