Interesting, to say the least. Combining James Brown’s The Payback with 2Pac’s Untouchable, Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Django Unchained is benefitting from a mash-up between two of music’s genuine icons.
Mash-ups are ten to a penny, but this one is certainly unique, mainly because it’s not strictly a mash-up. Whilst the production and vocals for the verses are mostly borrowed from the James Brown track, the offering in the hook is an original, wild west-style piece with a jazzy, upbeat edge. Horns aplenty and distinctive western guitar strums combine to provide a frenetic soundscape, one which supplements 2Pac’s catchy and high intensity vocal work, whilst giving the track context in terms of the film. It also complements the more laidback production style of the verses, and hence provides a nice distinction between the two, whilst giving the track an easy-to-follow structure, something often missing from this type of remix. Likeable and worth a listen.
So, unfortunately the last contest we did had to be pulled as the concert got cancelled. A shame, but I’m assured that won’t happen this time: Last.fm have secured the incredible God Is An Astronaut, MAYBESHEWILL and Nordic Giants to play their very special Christmas Live in London gig.
Hell of a lineup to be honest. The atmospheric, wintery work of GIAA alone will be an incredible experience live in person, and I expect you all to have clammy hands at the prospect of winning these.
Nothing complicated. Just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me you want in. I’ll draw someone out randomly to win a pair of VIP tickets to this event. Feel free to get creative.

Just a short promo clip for The Weeknd’s recently-released Trilogy, but worth a watch as it’s certainly something a little different from the usual promo clips you see floating around.
It appears as though he commissioned an artist (or a group of artists, it’s difficult to tell) to paint a mural of himself on the side of a building, and the artwork actually comes out rather well. So well in fact, you can pinpoint the exact origin of the scene they chose-it’s taken from his Rolling Stone video, and interestingly shows not only The Weeknd’s downbeat face but the camera pointing at him too. The end product is an insanely good piece that manages to create depth of field and fantastic lighting effects using only black, white and grey, and I’m sure this will be a nice bit of extra promotion for that album release. Very unique, and very likeable.
Those my age have pretty much grown up with this franchise, and though I didn’t care much for GTA4, nothing will ever take away from the sheer brilliance of the first three instalments and their various spinoffs (Vice City is one of the greatest games ever, and that’s not up for debate).
For me, what’s exciting here is seeing just how this series has evolved and remains one of the barometers for gaming generally. From the bird’s eye view camera with relatively random acts of crime in the original GTA to what comes across as a near-cinematic experience in this upcoming edition, it’s a perfect evolutionary chart for how video games have grown. The trailer demonstrates how GTA is probably going to remain the benchmark for some time to come, with some decent graphical work supplemented by what appears to be a Pulp Fiction-esque crossover story, with the protagonists’ seperate lives slowly intertwining. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited for a game, and I can’t wait for more to emerge on this one.
Almost a year to the day after we brought you Slaine, Reef the Lost Cauze and DJ Illegal, we’ve lined up an even bigger set of performers for the hardcore hip-hop heads.
With incredible histories in the music game, Ill Bill and Vinnie Paz bring a rapping pedigree and calibre of lyrical mastery that few can compare with, both as solo artists, part of La Coka Nostra and Jedi Mind Tricks respectively, and of course as the duo Heavy Metal Kings. Both will be joined by the revered DJ Eclipse (Non Phixion).
Support on the night comes from Leaf Dog, BVA and an additional RLD showcase that features Smellington Piff and Rag N Bone Man.
It’s an utterly stacked lineup that’s going to be unmissable for the hip-hop heads, and we’re bringing the goods to a city with one of the best rap communities in the UK right now. Tickets are on sale right now, and do yourself a favour and grab them quickly.

In Marvel’s “Iron Man 3″, brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man is pitted against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
As predicted from yesterday’s teaser trailer, things look to be a little less celebratory and much darker in the first Marvel film since The Avengers. Of course, there’s no shortage of visual splendour and big action cuts, of which we get several tastes throughout this clip, whilst appearances by The Mandarin and The Patriot offers insight into the script’s direction. That late-April 2013 release can’t come soon enough.
As is now the norm for big releases in either music or film, this isn’t the trailer but is actually a trailer for the trailer. Confused?
The official full-length trailer is due to be released tomorrow, but I’m sure there’s enough here to whet the appetite for Iron Man fans. It’s very early to deduce anything, but the trailer seems to be a little less ‘positive’ than the two previous films, suggesting this may go a little darker than its predecessors, whilst I’m sure the dedicates will enjoy seeing a glimpse of the new Iron Man suit.
Marvel are wasting little time capitalising on the buzz generated by The Avengers, and the second part of their story arc is now being put into motion, set to culminate with Avengers 2 in 2015. Before that though, we’ve got this, Thor 2 and plenty more besides on the way. Look out for that full trailer tomorrow.
London legends DJ MK & Spin Doctor go back to back for four and a half hours, spinning 10 minutes worth of tunes for every letter from A-Z.

The aptly named DJ MK is not only a mixtape legend but one of the longest running Hip-Hop radio DJs in the country and the official DJ for both Dizzee Rascal and Roots Manuva. A busy boy indeed!
Spin Doctor has been keeping London’s Hip-Hop scene alive with his legendary parties & live shows featuring all manor of Hip-Hop stars under The Doctor’s Orders banner for the last 7+ years.
Chris Read, who is warming things up with a numerically themed set, is sure not to disappoint as he puts his years of experience on show.

Just a quick blast for you on this one, as the latest ad spot for Fifa 13 features two hip-hop luminaries in the veteran Snoop Dogg/Lion, and the man-of-the-moment A$AP Rocky.
It’s probably just US-only (let me know if you see this one out here!), but is a big statement of how far along the appeal of the game has come in the US, meaning both Fifa and football as a whole. The clip actually showcases Fifa’s Xbox Kinect compatability quite well, and I recall reading a while back that the system also takes note of the player using bad language, with repeated use apparently affecting the referee’s harshness towards your team. A nice touch, but I’m more interested in how the proper game plays-if you haven’t already, grab that demo from the PlayStation Store or Xbox equivalent now.
By now, it’s well established that Gunplay is pretty wild. So, what do you think is going to happen when a firecracker like Gunplay, with the name GUNPLAY, is let loose in a theme park?
From miscellaneous dancing for no reason to running around with a cape on, this guy knows how to have fun and pretty much not care what anyone else thinks. Either that, or he’s massively crazy. Place your bets now.
There’s not much else to say here. Watch and be amused, and feel free to check out his recent mixtape if you’re drawn to his eccentricity. Shouts to Nikul on the find.

With the UK DVD release of Michael Rapaport’s award winning documentary on A Tribe Called Quest through Soda Pictures in September Tribe and it’s members are once again back in the spotlight and Ali is back for what is sure to be another great party. This is set to be one hell of a party so make sure you do not miss out!

Quentin Tarantino presents The Man With The Iron Fists, an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth. Making his debut as a big-screen director, co-writer and leading man, RZA—alongside an exciting international cast led by Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu—tells the epic story of warriors, assassins and a lone outsider hero who all descend on one fabled village in China for a winner-takes-all battle for a fortune in gold. The film arrives on November 2, 2012.
I saw the trailer for this a little while back and frankly, it looks epic. Normally projects like this can be pretty shoddy, but RZA’s clearly surrounded himself with the right people and properly committed to this, and the sheer scale of the names involved in both the film and the soundtrack suggests he’ll pull this off with considerable success. The tracklist features a fantastic roster, including Kanye West, Pusha T and of course the Wu-Tang Clan; click below for the full list, where you can also grab a free download from the OST. → Continue Reading RZA’s The Man With The Iron Fists Soundtrack Tracklist
We may as well just close down the internet now. Terry Crews has won it.
His work on the Old Spice campaign has been nothing short of superb, revitalising the brand in a way very few expected, giving it much need relativity to younger folk. Now, they’re taking things up another notch by ‘strapping’ Crews to various instruments and making some ridiculous noise, with hilarious results.
Be sure to watch it right until the end, when you can use your keyboard to make and record your very own ‘remix’ using the sights and sounds of the video (plus some bonuses-press the ‘A’ key for my favourite).
Probably the best début drama of 2011, Homeland returns to our screens in September.
This trailer shows a fair bit of action from season 2 (dubbed over with the haunting cover of Police’s song Every Breath You Take by Scala & Kolacny Brothers) without really giving anything away, bizarrely. After the way season 2 ended I don’t really know where this show is going to take us, but I do know that it’ll once again be brilliant television.
If you haven’t seen season 1 of Homeland yet, I suggest you do so.
Here’s the honest truth: I’m more excited for this than I have been for any Batman film ever. This graphic novel is by far my favourite comic of all-time (and if I’m allowed the extension, also my favourite book), and has been cited by Christopher Nolan as one of his (many) inspirations for the general thematic of his acclaimed 3-part Batman movie series. The sheer brutality and coarseness of the piece is one of the most realistic representations of Batman to date, whilst having Bruce Wayne be much older than in any other story makes for a refreshing change to the usual methodology.
With a critically-beloved piece like this, there’s always danger of not representing the source material properly, but based on the trailer it doesn’t look like that’s going to be a worry here. It’s not only good news for us fans of the original material, but I appreciate many aren’t into reading graphic novels, and hence those of you unfamiliar with the piece will surely find this movie conversion an excellent watch if it remains as true to the material as it seems to. It’s set up to be a 2-parter, and I’ll say this: if you think this looks epic, wait until you see how part 2 ends up.
Complex, ever a fan of lists, released one for the 30 Best Rappers in their 30s recently, and stepping away from decimating microphones for a minute, the Slaughterhouse quartet vented their opinions on the list in seperate interviews with Complex.
As you’d expect from this bunch, the results are pretty hilarious. Only Budden (24th) and Royce (20th) made the list, and the fallout from each artist is worth a watch. Budden is as sex-driven as ever, whilst Royce’s foolishness knows no bounds, including the ‘realisation’ that he’s the ’3rd best rapper from Detroit’. A very amusing watch, and it’s always good for fans to see this quartet showing their characters-if you’ve not been to one of their live shows, this is definitely a good insight.

I’m a little late on this perhaps, but today I found one of my favourite sites on the Internet EVER. It’s rare that a website can give so much joy (there are others out there, but I’ll let you imagine which ones those are) and I find myself sat grinning at my computer screen whilst playing around with the little men (…)
INCREDIBOX is essentially a better (more enjoyable), definitely easier-to-use version of Garageband, but where you simply drag and drop ‘actions’ onto the characters to create an ad-hoc melody, rhyme whatever. You have to try this. Addictive? Very.
