Random a/k/a Mega Ran: UK Update and New LDN Dates
Cheerio old chaps! Random here, reporting live from the UK, now that I got some decent wi-fi. for those that don't know, myself, DN3, Lost Perception and K-Murdock embarked on our first ever UK tour this week, stopping in Manchester and London for some unforgettable shows. Most of my pics are on my phone, so those won't be able to be uploaded till I get back to the states (Airplane Mode Swag)
Manchester was awesome. that place has so much character.. London is a lot more crowded and rude, but the shows were amazing. the energy was at an all time high. I performed not one, two, but three sets over the 2 days of London Anime Con.
Now, we have another week here for sightseeing. So if any of you can suggest a place we should see out here, let me know!
NEW DATES ADDED!
so far, this is what our schedule looks like for those who might be in the LDN area this week: all events start at 8pm.. my time is unknown.
Wednesday Aug 3 - "A Spoonful of Poison" @ The Drop (under the Three Crowns), 175 Stoke Newington High Street, N16 0LH
Thursday, Aug 4- "Live Expressions" @ PORTOBELLO Lounge 269 Portobello Road W11 1LR (Nearest tube and bus route Notting Hill gate, Ladbroke grove underground stations. Bus 23, 7, 228, 52)
THE BEATOFF! Pause...need your help!
So, since Lost, DN3 and K all brought their Maschines on the trip, I came up with a great challenge to keep my producers' skills sharp in the UK. I gave K-Murdock, DN3 and Lost a Beach Boys song, called "Let's Go Away for Awhile."
Please listen, repost, tweet, donate, and/or spread by word of mouth.

"In the light of news of Souljah Boy buying a 55 Million Dollar Jet in these times for many people especially of color..This is a polite respect call to the troops , to continue to inspire but reflect the people better. OTIS Redding was a humble country man from Macon Georgia who bought a jet to work in, not flash. He perished in that plane. Here's to hoping that the J & K supergroup can elevate the masses and try a little bit more to reflect OTIS heart rather than swag, because they're too good to be less."
New Grip Grandito! After a small hiatus, Grip Grand is back at it with this jam to keep you guys satisfied until his next full length project is finished. If you're a fan of the Grips grittier four track recordings then this is the jam for you. Grip's full catalog is available on bandcamp if you feel the need to play any catch up.
UK and International rapper/producer Rowdy T Northlondon who is now based in Miami, heats it up once again by collaborating with US hip hop rapper J-Killa ; to produce a sonic light year, southern baseline track titled “ FUTURISTIC SWAG”. The heavy baseline pounding demands attention as the modern duo gets into motion, cranking it up with their UK & US unrivaled combination of flows and rhymes; keeping you on the edge whilst they complement each other with well stitched seamless, relevant and exciting lyrical delivery.
The US has always heavily influenced the UK hip hop scene. Currently many UK rappers, who took inspiration from high profile hip hop artists, have themselves become exploding stars. Rowdy T, jubilant but remains composed that he is in the same arena for the break-out explosion of UK rappers exported to the US.
2011 has seen Rowdy launch his mixtape “THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH” followed by the leaked single “ALL ON ME” taken from his forthcoming mixtape “NO MERCY NO FEAR” due for release end of August. “FUTURISTIC SWAG” is yet another single being played out from the same forthcoming mixtape and featuring American rapper J-Killa emerging on the track standing tall like a one ton steel tower. Although J-Killa is not new to the industry he is still blazing the trails of the hip hop music industry, whilst trying to break out of the underground scene. J-Killa brings flavor to the table with his engaging, dramatic southern craftsmanship and refinement.
The backdrop of southern Florida smart, witty, crooning and whining flows from J-killa and power-up on point delivery from UK artist Rowdy T Northlondon makes this a truly unique and exciting single, of rappers displaying a good combination of distinct talent. You don’t need to look no further for a track that is ready for the Dj rotation if you can get hold of a clean version.
