Leif @ Ruff Club

the LES on friday night was graced by the presence of royalty, Leif, the king of wobble rap (he's currently a duke in africa)....

people came out of the woodwork, cause when this kid comes home from college, it's an EVENT.

btw, i still have maaajor whiplash from all the headbanging that occured during his set, especially when he dropped WZRDZ's Nirvana rmx....

T.B.D. is a 2500 square foot lounge in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As described on their website they have 12 beers on tap and free Wifi.

This friday there will be a sweet party there featuring a few of my favorite Brooklyn producers. Dre Skull, Krames, and Mike Genius.

The party is called the big dipper, and to get there, basically you have to follow the north star. if you have trouble finding the north star, just look for the big star coming off the handle of the big dipper up in the night sky. I know, its hard to do when you are on the G train, but some challenges aren't meant to be overcome.

T.B.D. is located at 224 Franklin Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. If you can't follow the stars, here's mapquest.

enjoy these mp3s from the afore mentioned artists in the meanwhile:

Flying Saucer Tai Chi - Mike Genius

Gone Too Far feat. Sizzla (Buraka Som Sistema Remix) - Dre Skull

Sick Wit It - DJ Krames

Nic Xedro aka Nikki Dro

way back in 2003 when we were just wee funkateirs jared and i decided to start Crushed Records as a means of getting our music out to the world. it was pre myspace, pre blogs, and (gasp!) pre friendster. we pressed up our first full length album, LCD, with a bootlegger, and i would sit on the corner of N7th and bedford and sell them with my girlfriend, who made hippy skin care products.....

jump ahead 6 years, and not only are we putting out our own music, but we've surrounded ourselves with amazing artists and talent....I am so excited about Crushed Records in 2009.

One artist that came to us like a lady bug landing on your arm is Nic Xedro. the mystery that surrounds him is intoxicating, he reeks of rockstardom, and the music makes u want to hump everything in sight: man, woman, animal or object.....

as seen on Winnie Cooper and Discobelle we bring to you "Im a Freak" by Nic Xedro aka Nikki Dro....
