Slimkid3 (aka Trevant "Tre" Hardson) is a founding member of seminal alternative hip-hop group The Pharcyde, as well as a solo performer and producer. He started his performing career as a member of Two Slimkid3 Numarkfor Two, a dance group best known for appearing on In Living Color. In 2002, Slimkid3 released Liberation, his first solo album after leaving The Pharcyde. Mark Potsic, a.k.a. DJ Nu-Mark, is a hip-hop producer, owner of Hot Plate Records, and member of Jurassic 5. He released his first solo album in 2004, an instrumental EP Blend Crafters. He has worked with J-Live, Aloe Blacc, Charles Bradley, and the Lonely Island. In 2014, he and Slimkid3 collaborated on their self-titled album, Slimkid3 & DJ Nu-Mark (Delicious Vinyl).

The dynamic duo recently did some record shopping at Amoeba Hollywood. In this "What's In My Bag?" episode Slimkid3 finds a few house and soul gems to add to his collection while Nu-Mark, the consumate record collector, digs up some funky breaks and world music collections. DJ Nu-Mark kicks things off on a hunch and picks up a copy of Jimmy McGriff's Flyin' Time. Slimkid3 follows that with Meshell Ndegeocello's latest release, Comet, Come To Me. From Snoop Dog and Dam-Funk's 7 Days of Funk project to house music singer Lisa Shaw, Slimkid and Nu-Mark dig deep!

2013's Fun Fun Fun Festival Boasts The Austin Event's Best Lineup To Date

Posted by Billyjam, October 7, 2013 03:15pm | Post a Comment

Now in its eight year the aptly named Fun Fun Fun Festival - Austin's annual Fall music/comedy/skate/food festival - will present its traditionally diverse and most satisfying lineup to date when it takes place in the Texas city over three days next month - November 8th, 9th , and 10th at the Auditorium Shores. That's when and where, on different stages catering to indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, punk, metal and comedy will present a refreshingly cool mix of well known and unknown (but all good) acts that will include RJD2, Melt BananaTelevision, Flag (members of Black Flag), Big Freedia, Patton Oswalt, The Walkmen, Daniel Johnson, Jurassic 5, The Descendents, MIA, Slayer, Ice-T, Death Grips, Serengeti, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Johnny Marr, Sparks, Action Bronson, Snoop Dogg, and Unlocking The Truth. The latter is the duo comprised of Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins: the young African American NYC metal loving pals who wowed audiences at the recent Afro Punk Festival in their home borough of Brooklyn last month. Below is an interview video with the passionate pair of young metal heads, along with a series of other music videos by a select few of the numerous amazing acts booked to play at Fun Fun Fun.  Usually festivals have some acts I really want to see and others that I could take or leave. But this festival personally appeals to my taste 100% with a lineup that I would like to see all of the acts perform. Hence am seriously considering how I can manage to take a trip to Austin next month to attend. Festival tickets are $79 per day or $179 for the three day weekend (or upgrade to $325 for the "ultimate smooth pass" which comes with some extras). Advance tix available to purchase here and more general Fun Fun Fun Festival info here or in the flyer above with all the amazing lineup included.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Cut Chemist

Cut Chemist

Cut Chemist has played a significant role in the eclectic music scene of Los Angeles. From his time spent with US Cultural Ambassadors band, Ozomatli, to his membership in one of Hip Hop's most respected "underground" groups, Jurassic 5. Cut Chemist is hailed as one of LA's best when it comes to DJs, producers, performers and vinyl collectors. 

On one of his many visits to his most favorite record store in the whole wide world (we assume this to be true), our cameras caught up with Cut Chemist for another memorable episode of What's In My Bag?. Leave it to Cut to magically dig up a rare break record, when those of us who are in the store daily never come across it! He has some really cool finds from '70s Meditation vinyl to a rare folk re-issue of Vashti Bunyan's Just Another Diamond Day. See for yourself!
