Inbox Goodies: The Extended Version

by Travis on March 24, 2009

Trav’s Pick

My man Ravage sent this over to me. Of course, I’m always down to hear ANYTHING with Elzhi on it, but the rest of the joint is nice as well and shouldn’t be slept on.

The song is the brand new banger produced by DJ SARASA called Bullet Train!

DJ SARASA a.k.a. Silverboombox – Bullet Train feat. Elzhi (Slum Village), Masia One & Cymarshall Law

DJ SARASA is one of the hardest working DJays in Tokyo on the come up right now. More about DJ SARASA is here:

Crew54 SXSW Special Part One & Crew Deep Mixtape

Whats good fam? I finally finished editing this weeks 54 Reality Show, I have tons and tons of footage from SXSW so I had to break it up into a two part series. We got the homie Peter Rosenburg to bless us with the opening shout out (one of many) and feature footage from the days leading up to the official SXSW Music jump off. Also we covered the first day of the festival with footage of Blu, U-N-I, and the SXSW Soul show with Wayna, Bavu Blakes, & Mojoe. This is a very entertaining episode, it moves fast and we do what we always do, keep it breezy.

DJ Eleven Mixtapes

I discovered DJ Eleven last year, when I came across his Winter Sadness mixtape. When I say mixtape, I mean exactly that, the old school definition. That particular mixtape happen to be one of my favorites last year. It wasn’t exclusively hip hop, this particular mix contained everything from Etta James, to White Stripes to Ghostface. I like some variety in my music and I like music that creates a mood, and that’s exactly what Winter Sadness did, it created a mood. Somehow, I happen to get on DJ Eleven’s mailing list, which is quite alright with me. His most recent news letter contained a bunch of goodies, including Winter Sadness 2, which is just as good as last years, but only download it if you like variety in your music. - Trav

Artist: Alternate Reality
song: Fast Talk
label: pH MUSIC/Pro Se Recordings

Cadence and Dumi RIGHT are Alternate Reality, a hip hop duo intent on
bringing hip hop with substance to the hungry masses.

On their first single “Fast Talk,” Alternate Reality deliver a rapid
fire assault on the current state of American politics. On the heels
of Rod Blagojevic’s attempted senate seat ‘auction’ and with George
W. Bush
‘s disasterous presidency having lowered the bar to previously
unimaginable depths, “Fast Talk” dismantles political double-speak and
shines a light on the corrupt practices that have left so many people
craving change they can believe in. Alternate Reality deliver ill
lyrics over a perfect backdrop provided by Lord Lamont’s (KHz
Production) high-energy track.

You can also peep out a quick youtube clip/slideshow created for this
track at the link below.
