I was lucky enough to be one of the fortunate folks out there to get my copies of this delicious audible treat from Oxygen the other day in the post. I opened my mailbox and saw it there in the post and was like “YESSSS!!!!!!!”. I ran up my driveway into the house and up into the lab and put it on decks, powered up the console and sat back and enjoyed some good, dope hiphop music. If your lucky to bump into him (if you live in NYC) or if you are lucky enough to order it online then I will assure you that you will not be disappointed with your purchase. I know I put up the previous folks but grabbed this one off of Ox’s crackbook page and wanted to show you all the cover art for the 7’inch.
If any radio or club DJ’s are interested in audio files of the SPOX PhD release, please let him know.When ya do please show your show name, station, affiliation, etc. would be helpful.

ALSO he is currently setting up show dates in the UK and EU beginning the end of February/start of March 2012 and looking to connect with serious artists & producers for possible features, show interviews, etc. He can be reached at the email address above.
Once again…Here to remind you why you fell in love with hiphop.
Well, the project is officially a wrap. Cuba now is going to meet up with Gandolf and were off to master. Exciting times indeed. Krum was kind enough to send me an updated version of the LP cover so I thought to share it with. Formula 99 on its way!!!
The rules are simple, remix any track of your choice using the acapella’s provided (we’ve tagged the bpm’s on the end for ease). You can listen to the originals here www.soundsci.bandcamp.com (if you purchase the release you’ll get an additional 3 acapella’s all of which can be used too). Then submit your remix to email@example.com
You have until the Monday 18th January to send your remix, with the winner being chosen by Soundsi and featured on a future release, sample clearance permitting, not that we’d advocate that sort of thing obviously 😉 In submitting it you agree to us putting it up on bandcamp so listeners can also judge for themselves and to be as fair to each producer as possible, please also include credits and contact details if you would like them listed. Audessey and U-George will also record a track for free for the winner as a prize or Jonny will make you a beat if you rap too, can’t say fairer than that!

Another year and another new release from the mighty Crate Escape Records. After the success of the Kurious 12″ and the Serocee 7″, comes more new hip-hop for the dancefloor. To celebrate Crate Escape and FUNKBOX join forces to bring a tip-top line up to the Hare and Hounds.
We have been lucky enough to snag one half of the Herbaliser and Soundsci collaborator, Ollie Teeba, who as normal will be bringing his deep crates and silky skills to the ones and twos of the HnH’s. Joining him will be Soundsci producer Jonny Cuba from London, and Brum’s and FUNKBOX’s own DJ Cro. This night will join all the dots between funk, hip-hop and all things groovy, as well as exclusive Crate Escape goodness. Hosted by Louis Den / Eat Good’s Kosyne, this is a party not to miss!
