12th Annual Xmas Wrap (Biggest Rap Show of the Year)

xmas-wrap-2016

One of the first hip-hop concerts I ever went to in London, Ontario was The 4th Annual Xmas Wrap. I was strictly a fan back then and just starting my career in radio. I wasn’t really known yet, especially outside of Hamilton. A lot has happened in the past eight years. DJ Hullewud distinctly remembers meeting me at that event. It’s hard to believe that was eight years ago.

I’m glad that the event has remained a Christmas tradition for all of us. It’s almost hard to believe that I am actually on the bill this year. I am so excited. This is always the biggest show of the year. It’s nice to see Swamp Thing come back to town every year to connect with their roots and throw an amazing concert full of talented artists to a packed house of energetic fans.

This years event is special because it features a Soundminds reunion, and marks the return of Sum-1 to the stage. It’s also hosted by London legend, Fritz tha Cat.

DJ Hullewud and DJ Chase March will be holding it down on the turntables all night long too.

The 12th annual Xmas Wrap Spectacular

The Annual Xmas Wrap Spectacular returns on December 22nd at Call The Office. This years event features Swamp Thing (Timbuktu, Chokeules & Savilion), Thesis Sahib, Soundminds, and Sum-01, along with DJ Hullewud & DJ Chase March. Hosted by Fritz Tha Cat.

Bios

Swamp Thing – For the past five years Toronto’s three-headed rap monster, Swamp Thing (Timbuktu, Chokeules & Savilion), have delivered a special sonic treat every Halloween. This year is no different. Back again with perhaps their greatest achievement yet, “Pray To Science” dropped October 28th via Urbnet. Produced entirely by Savilion and Timbuktu, “Pray To Science” delivers uptempo grooves and deep pocket space-aged boom bap, born of and created for the musically creative. Digging into the pantheon of underground hip hop, the records features collaboration from Ghettosocks, Birdpares, Ambition, Wordburglar, and Nilla.

Thesis Sahib – Thesis Sahib has been contributing to the underground hip hop movement for the past 19+ years, both as an innovative rapper and a well known visual artist. His articulate, rapid-fire delivery, harmonic vocals, and imaginative lyrics have graced an impressive catalogue of sought after releases on CD and vinyl. Often combining both 2D aesthetic with circuit-bent electronic toys, compositions written on modified Gameboys, a face mask costume fitted with a heavily effected microphone, and circuit-bent sounds have become part of his music and on-stage performances.

Soundminds – The last time the legendary London crew Soundsminds graced a stage together was at the 10th Xmas Wrap event back in 2014. Fingerslim, Mr. Megaphone, and Lionize Prime will once again reunite on stage, at the same time, with a very special set of their classic tracks, along with a possible surprise or two.

Sum-01 – Fresh off her latest hiatus, it’s the offical Sum-01 comeback. The queen of London hip hop returns to the stage for the first time since the summer of 2010 to take us back in time and perform tracks off her 2008 mixtape and 2010 EP.

Fritz Tha Cat – Claiming to have retired from the rap game 10 years ago Fritz returns to the stage this year to host the Xmas Wrap event for the very first time. Fritz has been quiet musically since dropping the last OK Cobra record back in 2009, but can be heard on the new Hand Solo “Bassment Of Badmen 3” compilation over DJ Moves production….with rumours of more new “old” material dropping in the near future.

Live-N-Direct Celebrates 20 Years on the Air

lnd20

Live-N-Direct is celebrating 20 years on the airwaves with a big show this Friday at The Spice Factory in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I am proud to be part of the celebrations and holding down the night on the 1s and 2s.

I have been a fan of this radio program from the very beginning. It was always a pleasure to turn on 93.3 CFMU and hear DJ Realistic cutting it up with great music, transitions, and mixes. Eklipz held in down on the microphone as the host and together their program delivered real hip-hop music and talk.

The baton has been passed a few times, but the show has continued to bless the airwaves every Saturday night from 9:00 – 10:30 p.m. since its debut in 1996. The show is now hosted by RashDon and The Oddfella and they are planning a huge celebration this Friday.

The award show / concert is proudly sponsered by PDN, Trenz Clothing, HamiltonHype.com, ReMax, Delta Nine, Mama Dee’s & View Magazine.

I hope to see you there.

Doug Crawford

Doug Crawford, also known as one half of the Canadian rap group Secret Society, has broken out as a solo artist and is bringing his impetuous flow to the masses. Crawford’s ability to channel his thoughts and feelings into astute and opulent rhymes is what continues to draw in the fans, and the release of his 3rd album F.A.M.E – For All My Efforts makes a strong statement about his talent, his work ethic, and his drive to break through.

Crawford’s LA upbringing seeded the inspiration for his future endeavors and laid the foundations for working with some of the same artists that he grew up listening to – having opened for Ice Cube, Mobb Deep, and Snoop Dogg among others.

Crawford has sold tens of thousands of albums and collaborated with legends of the game, including Royce Da 5’9″, The Outlawz, and Obie Trice. His reach only widens via extensive international press attention and radio play, yet Doug Crawford’s focus remains about the impact his music can have on others. In his own words, “I work hardest on improving my music and changing it with the times.” He’s ambitious, up and coming, and hard to miss; Doug Crawford’s time is now.

Doug has been taking the global scene by storm now performing to larger audience than ever before. With fans now spanning the globe Doug is poised for breakthrough success. Watch for Doug Crawford to establish a serious international presence for himself in the near future!

Tyrone Parsons aka Knucklehead

Tyrone Parsons is an actor, best-known for the role of T, a member of J-Roc’s Roc Pile. from Trailer Park Boys.

Parsons was born and raised in Lucasville, Nova Scotia. Tyrone has had an active rap career under the name Knucklehead.  Since 1993, beginning with an association with Atlantic rap troupe DJ Ruckus and Mad Craz. This association landed him a record contract under which he collaboratively released two albums and conducted three tours with other rappers.

After appearing in a music video by Classified, he began to make the move to TV, landing an audition with Mike Clattenburg who was casting the Trailer Park Boys series at the start of its run. Even after landing the role of T, Parsons remained in the rap game, signing first with Change The Game Records (home to Anonamyss), then left with some the artists under this label to form Musik Overmatter, an independent label. Since then he has played a major part in the production and release of several albums, and released his first solo record, KnuckleUp in 2005, and a Mad Craz record in 2008.

In the show, T is sometimes referred to as T-Knuckles, a subtle nod to Parsons’ real life rap persona.

CheZZa Bio:

With the formation of IceBurgh Society Entertainment, CheZZa has grown within himself as well. As he is a member of Blaq Roche, within the group he helped form his voice, which has begun to bring about a new change to his music, and to the way he views the world.

CheZZa went from making music to please the masses, to now making music to heal the masses, and becoming the newest voice for the voiceless, and the new head to the headless. IceBurgh Society Entertainment is a reflection of this change, and it is only the beginning.

From his days of opening for Hip Hop groups such as D-Sisive, ONYX, Merkules, Snak the Ripper, JD Era and Rich Kidd just to name a few, he has begun to separate himself from the constraints of the Hip Hop genre so that he could become what he feels is needed in the world and our society.

Stay tuned for the newest wave of CheZZa, and open your mind and ears to the true new world order, which will be lead by CheZZa and the IceBurgh Society.

DJ Chase March on The Come Up Show

WIB takes over The Come Up Show (1)

I am pleased to announce that I will be the guest-host and deejay tomorrow on The Come Up Show from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on 94.9 CHRW.

I am usually on late-night  with my show “Word is Bond Rap Radio” on the same station. It is nice to have an earlier time slot for once. If you are not a night owl, you can finally hear me spin live.

Please call in to the station to say, “What’s up?” at (519) 661-3600 when you are listening. You can also text that number.

I plan on playing nothing but Canadian hip-hop music tomorrow. If you have a request, call, text, or hit me up on social media.

I’m looking forward to rocking for you in the day-time / early evening.

DJs Run It and Run With It

Playing With Something that Runs

Playing With Something That Runs by Mark J. Butler

This book focuses on DJ and laptop performers in the EDM (electronic dance music) realm. I thought it was worth exploring even though that isn’t really my genre of music. I was sure there would be tie-ins to hip-hop and what I do as a DJ. I was right.

Recorded Music is Its Own Thing

Hip-hop music spread and became popular due to recordings (singles and albums.) They sounded different from the live performances too. The author talks about this in relation to rock music.

“rock spread and became popular through recordings . . . [and] is essentially dependent on recording technology for its inception and dissemination . . . rock embraces a host of performance styles, but most have some basis in African American popular music, are rooted in song, and paradigmatically exist as recorded music.”

Hip-hop started with deejays taking breaks from existing sound recordings and extending them. When hip-hop started to get recorded, it wasn’t simply a live performance being recorded. It became its own thing.

“recordings have conventionally been understood as ‘snapshots of live performances’ [but] records were conceived of as goals rather than by-products of artistic endeavors.”

The Third Record

When a deejay mixes two records together, he is essentially creating a third record. When two songs match up perfectly in time, they create new song or sound that had never been heard before. The deejay essentially creates a new song that has been labelled “the third record.”

Butler explains it this way, “this combination of texts produced something that did not exist in material form.”

Borders Dissolve and Songs Become Fluid

The deejay present songs in a way to make the set something exciting and new. The mix is what is important, not just the individual songs. The whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.

“The works contained in the recordings that constitute a DJ set are rarely presented in their entirety; instead, they are truncated, altered, and combined with other works. The borders and seams of the original work dissolve; it no longer functions as a unitary, bounded entity. The stability, fixity, or permanence that is classically associated with the work slips away, and any authorial value that might have been accrued with the work is seriously weakened. At the same time, aspects of the original work’s essence remain, and its former identity is not irrelevant. These ontic elements, however, become part of new, larger entities – the third record, and ultimately the set.”

The Power of Recognition

When deejays play a snippet of something that the audience can recognize, it energizes the crowd and makes the set memorable.

The sample, which presents a brief chunk of material – often recognizable – from a preexisting recording .. . is “performance quotation” because of the highly specific way in which they point back to the unique ‘aura’ of the original recording.”

Time Constraints 

“Perhaps the most obvious and global constraint of improvised musical creativity is the requirement that it proceed inexorably forward through time. . .  Steve Lacy, quoted by Borgo, highlights this limitation: ‘In fifteen seconds, the difference between composition and improvisation is that in composition you have all the time you want to decide what to say in fifteen seconds, while in improvisation, you have fifteen seconds.”

Timing is essential for deejays. We have to take the record as it spins and mold it or form it so that it meshes with the song before it and the song that comes next. This is a constraint that helps foster creativity in the DJ set. I love how improvisational all of this is. But improvisation takes practice and experience. It’s a challenge that I enjoy trying to overcome every time I get behind the turntables.

More to Come

I enjoyed reading this book and learned a thing or two about my craft. I have more notes too that I’d love to share. Stay tuned for a follow-up post soon!
