The amazing Fresh Espresso Remixes keep rolling in.

Thrills went in on "Big or Small" and "Vader Rap". I love these interpretations of the tunes, and the arrangements are top notch.

Fresh Espresso


Returns tonight.

Champagne and TheeSat are putting out a 7" single for their hit "Magnetic Blackness" with Members Only. Lar said it best: "You know already—it’s a contender for local hiphop jam of 2009, easily. I mean, a pro-black rap anthem? From Seattle? That gets everybody dancing? File under “Never Saw That Coming”"

And do you see us geeking out on the lower right? What a fucking blast.

Our boy Sebino, formally a Seattle native and now living in L.A., remixed Fresh Espresso's hit Diamond Pistols.

After the Filejerks dropped that dope Diamond Pistols remix, and now this brilliant Sebino version, I wouldn't be surprised if some more Fresh Espresso acapellas appeared on this blog for free download (hint hint)

Hi haters!

to get everyone geared up for the RETURN OF PHIZZ coming up on 2/25/10 at the Can Can i have reworked some old snaps from PHIZZ on 5/23/08. this was a very special night for everyone involved. a lot of people that are killing it in Seattle hip-hop now met for the first time at this show.

below are a few pics of Champagne Champagne before Sir Thomas Gray was in the mix. it's impossible for me to imagine them without Thomas at this point but a Champagne show was still electrifying in those early days and why i chose to show up and shoot this night. you can see Larry Mizell Jr. and Bruce Illest get their first taste of Champagne in the first one!

the pic below was taken after the show and i was told by Larry Mizell Jr. that this was first time he had met Pearl Dragon (and i think maybe the Mad Rad guys too?). DJ Swervewon i see you!

this was first time i met Bruce Illest and Mr. Mizell myself. at this point there was no They Live!(now Mash Hall) and they were in an outfit called Cancer Rising that played Sasquatch a few days after this.

also i witnessed my first Mad Rad show on that fatefull night and made some awesome and inspiring friends. the night overall was a legendary moment in Seattle music and the beginning of the "3rd wave".

justin palm a.k.a. jp farquar conveys his dark and tortured forms in all mediums from his cartoon series "no naps for the damned" to his comic book to his paintings creating his own worlds of the macabre as he goes along. he is truly talented and hands down one of my favorite visual artists.

jp farquar is having a show of his paintings and comic book sketches on Friday 2/12/10 at the city hostel - 2327 2nd ave Seattle Wa. 98121 (2nd & battery) from 5 to 9 and it's going to be amazing. he will have prints, t-shirts, stickers, buttons etc. for purchase and there will be snacks, beer and wine available.

below are some of his newer paintings that will be in the show and also part of the pilot episode of his cartoon.
