Sullee J, turns a negative into a positive, you can certainly feel his positive energy on our In Memory of Jagmeet Page, where he shared a special poem about suicide. It’s not an easy topic to discuss, but his words on the topic, I believe can save a life. A couple of weeks ago, we played “Weakness of Man” on the Junction. This is the first single to his new album, Vindication, which will spread a positive message among the youth and those striving to make a change. The powerful video (Weakness of Man), which premiered on January 15, 2011 on illVibes-DMV shows the role positivity plays in fighting off corruption, hatred and crime of the world. In the video, Sullee J takes on the role of positivity when he continues to fight for what is right, despite being beaten down, emptied out and tortured.

What makes a good management team? Its when they give the fans a behind the scene look of their artist. It’s always fun to see the making of a music video, if you have had the chance to be in one, you know there’s a lot of waiting around and retakes. It’s a work of art, but these behind the scene videos make it look so easy (for some of us who will never be on a set with Dark MC) get an up close and personal look behind his new single – Jaadu. Download Jaadu

I had this look on my face when I was watching this music video, by Skilf, we are currently playing his London track from his mixtape Alter Ego on THE JUNCTION. As a film grad, I have a soft spot for old cinema, I really enjoyed these clips from the Detonate (another track from the Alter Ego mixtape) music video. Skilf gets an A+ for originality!

Panjabi MC mention in Jay Z’s “Decoded”

I can’t recall which club I was at, but I remember it was DJ Sikhness who dropped Panjabi MC’s “Mundian To Bach Ke” but all of the sudden I heard Jay Z’s voice. It had to be the hottest track to hit the desi party scene in 2003. When Jay Z remixed the track, he called it “Beware of the Boys” the english translation to Mundian To Bach Ke, it would an evolution blend of hip hop and punjabi beats – making its way to mainstream.

I was in a London club when I first heard Panjabi MC’s “Mundian To Bach Ke.” It wasn’t lik anything else playing. The base line was propulsive and familiar, but it took me a second to realize it was from the theme song of Knight Rider, a bass line Busta Rhymes has also used. On top of the crazy, driving bass line were fluttering drums and this urgent, high-pitched, rhythmic strumming, which came, as it turns out, from a tumbi, a traditional South Asian instrument. I didn’t know all that when I heard it in the club. All I knew it was something fresh. Recalled Jay Z.

Decoded was featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things (The Holiday Special) it’s a great book for anyone who loves music.

Our warm thoughts are with the people of Pakistan and surrounding countries affected by the 7.4 earthquake, as far as we can tell, the earthquake was pin point in a remote desert area on the South west Pakistani boarder, as of yesterday one people was reported dead, damaging reports are still coming in. If we get any links to from the red cross and other volunteer organizations to help the people in Pakistan, we will let you know.
