This is the first installment of several “Respect The Architects” episodes we’ll be doing. It’s important to not only remember, but respect the pioneers, the originators and the emcees who have influenced in hip-hop as we know it today. While shows like The Get Down or Hip-Hop Evolution have done a great job with the visual side of things, episode 5 is all about the audio. Our topic of the show is what emcee opened your eyes to hip-hop and made you hit that rewind button until it broke? Sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy the sounds of LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions to name a few.

Get Your Game On with Hip Hop Bingo

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Mixing hip hop and bingo to liven up the night

Over the years, bingo has gained so much popularity that even celebrities are playing the game for charity. Actors like Russell Crowe (who used to be a bingo hall caller) and musicians like Bono (U2’s front man), have admitted to playing the game for their favorite charities. Since its invention in 1929, the game has attracted different games. From Facebook to horse racing bingo, the game has definitely influenced fashion, art, food, and even music. Recently, another variation of bingo has emerged—hip hop bingo.

Basically, playing hip hop bingo isn’t that different from the games you’ll find on CheekyBingo. On each bingo card, you’ll find 25 squares arranged in five horizontal rows, vertical columns, and one space marked “Free” in the middle. Numbers are placed on each space in the grid, which you’ll need to mark off once the DJ calls them. The only variation to this game is that you’ll have to yell “Hip Hop!” instead of “Bingo!” when you’ve formed a prescribed pattern. Then, you’re required to run up the stage and dance to the beats with the other winners. To make things more fun and unique, organizers usually include odd prizes like broomsticks wrapped in leopard print, a bronze frog statue, or a chewing gum necklace.

Scott Down & DJ Cutler “Ultimate Breaks & Beatles”

Friday, September 9th, 2011

My brother sent me this mix yesterday he grabbed from Pipomixes via Mixcrate. Absolutely mind blowing. So I’m all set to blog about it, but it turns out this mix has been around since 2009 and was even covered by our sister site, Steady Bloggin. So how exactly did I miss this the first time around?

 

From Mixcrate:
Like the scores of musical sounds and ideas it is meticulously crafted from, Ultimate Breaks and Beatles belongs to nobody yet everybody. Composed of crates upon crates of Beatles records, obscure covers of Beatles songs, the entire 25 volume Ultimate Breaks and Beats series and plenty more, it is a celebration of record collecting, DJing, hip hop music, and above all, the unparalleled resonance and influence of both the almighty Beatles and the almighty Ultimate Breaks and Beats series. In the tradition of its two titanic subjects, the mix defies genre; at once spanning, re-contextualizing, and transcending everything from classical to blues to jazz to rock to rap in just over and hour. Unlike your neighborhood hipster laptop DJ’s latest trendy “mash ups”, there were absolutely no software, sequencers, or techno used here–just a ton of vinyl, two turntables, a mixer, and an 8 track…

We here at LO DO Industries certainly hope that you enjoy it. If so, please copy and share with as many people as possible, for free of course. If not, keep it to yourself flavor hater. To Ultimate Breaks and Beatles, I raise a hoppy brew. Scott and Mike did a fine job once again. To paraphrase Pablo Picasso: good DJs copy, great DJs steal….

“No one, however, has done quite what Down and Cutler managed to do here. ‘Ultimate Breaks and Beatles’ celebrates the enduring magic of the original music. But more importantly, it rescues the mash-up from the very real threat facing it — the danger of it becoming too trendy, too easy to execute, too much a product of the computer technology and not of the imagination. ‘Breaks and Beatles’ recontextualizes the art and the artifacts themselves, and if the Beatles’ music doesn’t actually need any assistance in retaining its relevance, Down and Cutler have managed to find new possibilities in that music. Kudos are due.”
-The Buffalo News, 2009
