This and That

November 29, 2008

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Gotta give Billy Jam a shout for playing Big Shot by DJ Agent 86 on his radio show Put the Needle on the Record on WFMU the other night. The ep Raise the Roof is available for digital download right now and the 7 inch single The Ultimate/Big Shot is at the pressing plant being manufactured. I had the chance to be on Billy Jams radio show when he did a live broadcast from Oakland a couple of weeks ago. Ran into Azeem at the radio show. We had released his album Show Business on Bomb Hip-Hop in 2004. He laced me with a mix cd called “On the Rocks” by him and DJ Zeph. If you can cop a copy of this cd I highly recommend it.

Our new Bomb t-shirts are in stock. These were made to coincide with the release of the the Bomb Hip Hop Compilation – Volume 2. The shirts are black with white and silver ink. Each limited edition shirt comes with a download card to download the entire album. If you are interested in purchasing a shirt just click here and scroll down to just past the album track listing for the info.

Coming up on Dec 19th we are doing a special $5 hip-hop show at the Dark Room (Club Six) in San Francisco with Sweatshop Union, Bash Bros, and Boac with Dnae Beats. Hope to see everyone out at this event. For just $5 you can’t lose! Purchase an advance ticket and get a free un-released track by the Sweatshop Union sub-group Pigeon Hole.
