Minnaepolis emcee Michael “Eyedea” Larson passed away today according to City Pages magazine in Minneapolis.
There is a facebook page set-up to help with funeral costs.
after the jump i ramble about my memory of bumping into Eyedea. And posted some videos that stick out in my mind.
I’m not an expert on Eyedea’s life or music by any means.
Blueprint’s latest EP has him sampling the Who EP. So you Rock N Rollerz might light this one. The bulk of the content is Print discussing how he worked hard to get where he is at when other people had different ideas. Donewaiting readers might take note of track 3, “See Thru”, Print’s lo-fi song, where he shouts out DJ Przm, TNV and PHS. Illogic is on Track 5, “Pain” in which Print revisits the Teenage Wasteland sample he used on Illogic’s “1000 Whispers” and then Best Buy told him he wasn’t allowed to when Weightless reissued Celestial Clockwork through Raptivism.
There are three versions of Blueprint Who. This is the free version. To purchase or look for more info please check www.weightless.net.
Blueprint is currently on tour With Atmosphere, DJ Rare Groove, Budos and Grieves

If y’all remember Greenhouse vs. Radiohead, Blueprint vs. Funkadelic or how Print flipped the Who on Illogic’s “1,000 Whispers then you will be pretty stoked on Blueprint’s first video for his new EP Blueprint Who.
The video had Print and and his dj Rare Groove playing the role of rivals that keep bumping into each other at the local record stores, Used Kids, Magnolia and Lost Weekend.
It’s funny and silly.
(I make a brief cameo in a shot)

As mentioned here previously, Cleveland rock monsters This Moment In Black History recently released a new album entitled Public Square. I vaguely remember previous recordings being decent but lacking a certain something to keep me coming back. On the new album, however, I found more groove and variety than I expected. The frenzied, spastic, punky bursts of energy associated with their live show are still there, and they manage to fight through 13 songs in just over 32 minutes. However, within that time they also play some modern stoner rock, some darker “indie rock” that gives me some El Jesus vibes (see MP3 above), and they even toss in an old-school rap parody. The epic six-minute jam finale summarizes the proceedings quite well with a culmination of the multiple styles present on the record. The quartet fires on all cylinders throughout and lends the entire album an undercurrent of fiery soul. Maybe it’s time to dig out some of those older records.
Smog Veil Records has released Public Square on a pressing of 1000 records on marbled multi-colored wax (with MP3 download coupon), which you can pick up here or perhaps at a live show. Also available wherever fine MP3s are sold.
Speaking of live shows, the band will return to Columbus on Friday night at their current favorite local spot, Carabar. This show is part of another leg of their tour with fellow Clevelanders Sun God, but the show is also the 5th anniversary of the bar itself. So, more bands are surely taking part in the festivities, including a set from Blueprint with DJ support from Carabar Ron. This will be crazy and FREE, so who knows what might happen?
MP3:Greenhouse-Electric Purgatory 2
Blueprint and Illogic bring you the second installment of Electric Purgatory
It’s really futuristic sounding and guests Toki Write and Aesoprock
Greenhouse has a release party here in Columbus July 24th. Toki Write, Stonecraft and Zero Star are also on the bill.
Greenhouse(Blueprint and Illogic) hook up with Rhymesayer Toki Wright and Angelic Lee over new-fashioned cyborg almost tribal rhythm complete with a heavenly vocoder. Don’t think drum n bass though cause it sounds nothing of the sort. Word wise all three trace their paths in time.
The song is from the upcoming Weightless Release Greenhouse Ep Electric Purgatory Two which features Toki Wright and Aesoprock.
Release party in Columbus July 24th. Read the flyer that is posted.
Greenhouse 102:Blueprint and Illogic raw rhymes over hard drums. Gotta love it.
Greenhouse will release Electric Purgatory Vol 2 soon which guests Aesoprock and Toki Wright.
Greenhouse has a release event scheduled July 24th at Skullys. Toke Wright will be performing at that show.
