Legendary West Coast DJ of Project Blowed Highlights The Mello Music Group Roster
In conjunction with Mello Music Group's recently released compilation album, Helpless Dreamer, the stalwart indie label has teamed up with Project Blowed DJ Tommy Blak to further highlight Mello's unrivaled roster of talent. The mixtape, Mello Music Group Volume One, is smooth mix of tracks from the past two years, meant to recap the label roster's work and provide some holiday treats for eager fans.
A mix of tracks from a variety of artists, the mixtape has some rare gems, including the very first version of "Drugs Outside" over the original Oddisee beat (not the remix from Mental Liberation) featuring DJ Romes on the cuts and featuring rapper Big Pooh and Black Milk. It also includes a selection newer tracks from recently released projects, including a few cuts from Helpless Dreamer. Mello Music Volume One also shows off two new talents on prepping new projects with MMG in 2011 - Stik Figa, who hails from Topeka, Kansas and just released his collaborative EP, From The Top, with Oddisee and Has-Lo, who hails from Philadelphia.
Over the past 4 years Wordsmith has dropped a series of mixtapes like 2006's "Statements & Stipulations," which garnered notable mention on MTV's Mixtape Mondays to the recent "Buzzworthy Bangers Vol. 1 EPixtape," that gained global exposure by being prominently featured on Frostwire.com promotions. During this period Word wasn't just setting himself up for the future, he was working with NU Revo mainstays Kontact & Black Knight. They have appeared on all 9 of Wordsmith's prior mixtape releases and his solo debut, "Vintage Experience." Recently, the camp invited a new member into their circle, DC's own Whitefolkz. He made his debut on the remix to Chubb Rock & Wordsmith's Bridging the Gap track earlier this year. Overall, all 4 MC's carry very different styles, yet view the world the same; with open minds. Together they are The NU Revolution Camp and here is their introduction.......
"Pressure Cooker" marks the 1st single from their upcoming mixtape "Superhero Theme Music" Vol. 1 dropping February 7th, 2011!

Mixed & Engineered by 5th Sequence (www.NorthSci.com) @ Phat Root Studios Portland, OR With Many Projects in the mix, Landon Wordswell has stopped touring and started the recording process and begins with "Stand Up".

Working on new band (Speaker Minds) EP, a solo EP, an album with featured artist Hobbs, and penning his first solo LP, 2011 will surely be a busy year. The Fountain of Youth II is scheduled to drop first quarter of 2011.
If you’ve bounced along to Jesse Abraham’s “Yoga,” and if you frequent this site there’s a good chance that you have, you should know that the reason you were bouncing was one part Jessie Abraham and one part Spills. Spills is a producer who’s been working in NYC’s underground hip-hop scene for a number of years and his infectious sound, and long list of artists he’s been working with, is beginning to catch people’s attention in a major way. A handful of days ago, while Spills was on a flight to India, we shot emails back and forth for an interview. During this conversation that could only happen due to the wonders of technology Spills discussed his long history as a musician, how his ethnic background has affected his time in NYC and his music, and the very unfortunate way he came to be known as Spills.
