Video/Contest: The Niceguys - "Nice Short Pt. 9"

The Contest:

It's been seven months since The Niceguys released their debut full-length, The Show, and the accolades continue to roll in. Back in March, they covered the Houston Press, and this summer they'll be one of the featured acts taking part in Tour Texas, joining a handful of fellow rising Texas acts to perform in cities and towns across the state. And even though The Niceguys still have a video forthcoming for the album single "Die Later," Yves Saint, DJ Candlestick, Cristolph, and Free have begun the process of putting the final touches on their forthcoming project, The James Kelley EP, to be released this summer.

And for the upcoming EP, The Niceguys are inviting fans in, to take part in the process of creating the new project, and in doing so have launched The James Kelley EP Fan Art Contest. The contest, which is open now, is giving fans the chance to submit their very own cover art for the EP, and the winner will be chosen directly by The Niceguys. The artist who submits the winning entry will receive full credit for their work and see their image distributed everywhere alongside the EP, which is set to release in digital and in hard-copy form. Full details on what exactly the group is looking for and how to go about submitting your artwork can be found here: http://thenicelook.com/JKEPContest.html, and to help fuel in the creative juices The Niceguys have released the latest in their Nice Short video series, directed as always by Tubo, and taking a fun look into the question, "Who Is James Kelley?"

MP3: DJ JS-1 - "Boom Slap" Feat. KRS-One & Rahzel

If you're fed up with producers who make "fake J Dilla beats" and "pop-star radio DJs" like DJ JS-1 is, the best thing to do is slap them across the face with some real boom bap sounds. So that's exactly what the Queens, New York DJ did with his new single, "Boom Slap," and who better to amp up the slap than two of the kings of boom bap, KRS-One and Rahzel. The respective visionaries of rapping and beat boxing join their friend JS-1 on the first leak from No One Cares, which will be released on June 21st via Fat Beats Records. "My biggest selling single to date was my first single, 'Essentials,' which featured KRS & Rahzel," says JS-1. "That was on my first album, Ground Original 1 in 2002. With this album being Ground Original 3 and the final installment of that series, I wanted to close out with a KRS & Rahzel track."

Since his start in the early 90's, DJ JS-1 has witnessed hip-hop evolve over the years, and "Boom Slap" explains exactly how he feels about hip-hop in 2011. "I'm all about boom bap, regardless of how some of these new-jacks feel," explains the DJ/producer. "There are tons of people making pretty music, and that's nice for an R&B group, but we make that boom bap that slaps you when you hear it." This song does just that, as JS-1's hard-hitting beat serves as the foundation for Rahzel's background vocals and patented vocal scratches, while KRS verbally assaults the beat with his unmistakable flow. "The style of hip hop we create is not going anywhere," says JS-1. "People can say what they want – make what they want – but this style will always be here. Forever, and ever, we will be here forever..."

DJ JS-1's No One Cares will be available for purchase on June 21st on Fat Beats Records.
