RIP Pimp C

Where I been these last few days? Texas hip hop veteran Pimp C, real name Chad Butler, passed away from unknown causes on Tuesday, and I just want to take the time out here to pay my respects. Though I have never been a huge fan of UGK’s, I have been digging them on-off since…

Heavy Rotation: DSCM 2005

Som et supplement til lyden fra det relativt nyligt afholdte Danske SoundClash-Mesterskab 2007, som jeg linkede til i forrige uge, vil jeg lige gøre opmærksom på, at der ligger lignende optagelser fra det første danske Soundclash tilbage i 2005, hvor People’s Choice tog titlen fra Rootsman Hi-Fi pga. af en fumlefejl fra sidstnævnte i finalerunden.…

Heavy Rotation: DJ Vadim & Friends

Been peeping the podcasts of Ninja Tune stalwart and beatmaker extraordinaire DJ Vadim these last few days. Go check it out — the mixes are great, and so is the soundclash with beat maestro DJ Krush, and the Soundcatcher release party concert.

Rootsman Massive!

Ville have postet om det tidligere, men har ligget lidt underdrejet (og gør det fortsat). Hele aftenens program, optaget direkte fra…

Whither My Country?

Cartoon Crisis Remembered in Danish Election, pt. 2

Following upon Danish far-right Danish People’s Party’s campaign poster of a few days ago, evoking the cartoon crisis, left-wing party Enhedslisten (“The Unity List”) and their candidate for parliament Asmaa Abdol-Hamid (pictured, right) have created their own poster in response, showing a hand drawing the face of Danish People’s Party leader Pia Kjærsgaard under text…

Cartoon Crisis Remembered in Danish Election, pt. 2

Following yesterday’s post upon Danish People’s Party‘s election campaign, left wing party Enhedslisten has produced this ad (left) as a counter-comment to the former’s Mohammed poster. The face on the ‘drawing’ belongs to Danish People’s Party‘s leader Pia Kjærsgaard, and the text states: “Freedom of speech is Danish, stupidity is not“.        …
