Listen: Blueprint – The Making of Adventures in Counter-Culture: Chapter 03 “Automatic”

 

Blueprint wrote a book detailing the making of his album “The Adventures in Counter-Culture”.  Today, Print uploaded a soundcloud link of himself reading the chapter on making “Automatic”.  It details how the song was created after he took a vacation on the heels  of  the ending of So What Wednesdays which was a weekly Hip Hop event that was formed in the aftermath of the deaths of some key Columbus Hip Hop figures and close friends. He also goes through the process of learning new recording skills after switching from sampling to synths. So basically, this chapter is about taking a break to spawn artistic growth after a rough period.

MP3:the Corn Puppies “B*tch You Don’t Know Sh*t 2″

MP3:The Corn Puppies “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit 2″

Early this week we posted Racist Joe’s lost hit “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” in lieu of a 7 inch of the song that will be handed out at the Daymon Day Parade tonight.
Well, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” has already spawn a cover version.
The Corn Puppies are a new group consisting of Ben Branstetter, John Hughes, Rustin and Jake Winston. They haven’t played a show yet, but Daymon was always nice to dudes when they were young so they felt compelled to do this cover. It’s really good. And it’s funny to hear the lyrics sung in Rock N Roll form.

MP3: Racist Joe aka Daymon Dodson “B*tch, You Don’t Know Sh*t!”

MP3: Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!

At the 6th Annual Daymon Day Parade on September 17th, we will be handing out 7 inches of Racist Joe’s cult hit song Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit produced by DJ Bombay.

Song is hilarious as Daymon raps about mythical sexual exploits that resonate all the way out to Polaris over the theme music to Soap.

And during times like these, who can’t relate to the phrase, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!”?

Thanks to Michael Carney for designing the label and cover. Also special thanks to Mus-i-col for the quick turn-around on pressing, and Carabar for being supportive of this record from day 1.

After the jump watch people sing “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” on the corner of 5th and High at the end of the 2009 Daymon Day Parade. Continue reading

Review: Yeasayer in Columbus


Ahmed Gallab image courtesy Full Frontal Fashion

Having seen Yeasayer a couple of times before, I knew what to expect to a certain degree. The words I would use are similar to those which describe their sound: psychedelic, heart-thumping rock music that teeters on the brink of insanity. This mood they create in their live set has to be part of the reason they’re so well liked by other current mega-indie acts like MGMT and Vampire Weekend. It’s music that makes you dance, drink, take drugs (or feel like you have)… a real experience. A performance that makes my imagination wander is the real test to how remarkable a band is live. Makes it easy to see why their music videos always seem to have escaped from a third dimension.

Perhaps the most refreshing aspect of the performance was Ahmed Gallab’s (aka Sinkane) public allegiance to the city of Columbus. Not only did he step back on stage before the encore and talk about his time spent here, but he kicked off their last song by stating “This is all for Daymon Dodson.” People like Ahmed are why I love the Columbus music community.

What’s Really Good Columbus?!

Obviously the big story today is the OSU football game. Throw your rah-rag up.
Well, after the bucks win, whether you head to a parade, a festival, a BW3 or take a nap, try to come out to the Daymon Day Parade Afterparty.
Columbus legends The Fonosluts and DJ True Skillz will team up with Get Right Columbus, CJ Townsend and Iyeball of Fly Union to do it like they use to do , and continue to.
New School x Old type jump-off.
CJ and Iyeball will be coming returning from New York tonight where Iyeball’s rap group Fly Union and CJ just performed at Santo’s Party House for a BET Music Matters Showcase.
Daymon was a mentor for Fly Union, obviously a member of the Fonosluts, and he was also in BSA along with the Get Right Columbus fam.
Daymon would be proud of both Get Right, Fly U’s success, and be stoked to see Hip Hop culture in Columbus flourishing.(this is just the tip of the iceberg.)
So it should be fun.

RIP DJ PRZM….MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter People



(Via Get Right Columbus)


MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter Peopl
e

Today is the Three Year Anniversary of DJ Przm passing. Cashola uploaded one of Przm’s classic compilation’s the Letter People to the Get Right Blog about an hour ago.
Przm would produce 18 song albums and sell them at the Fonoluts Hip Hop night until he lost interest in them, and then these cds would dissappear. I think 50 copies of the Letter People existed and I’ve had it stolen from me twice, and i probably stole a copy from someone at some point. So i am really happy Cashola uploaded it.
Pos can correct me, but this cd is prolly from 2000-2001.
The cd itself is raw, minimal Hip Hop that invokes but doesn’t bite Wu Tang, Pharoah Monche if he was an asshole and Mobb Deep.
For younger doods, imagine 30 black doods(a couple white doods) that could rap, dress, pull a fly girl,drink and fight partying at Bernie’s and on like Blake and Patterson.(OSU campus for non-Columbus people.Which is now Twee or jocks.) Continue reading
