RECAP: Despite my utter lack of scheduling, and preparation, I still managed to eek out a great time in slightly less than 36 hours. We did however run into some technical issues during that time, most notably when the battery of my G1 died shortly after arriving at the Fader Fort. So I wasn’t able to blog/tweet much about the great performances of Bun B, Jadakiss, the entire G.O.O.D. Music family featuring Kanye West or the Diplo/Blaqstarr I Heart Comix afterparty. Actually, by the time that Kanye hit the stage I was on triple stage inebriation and probably couldn’t have posted much to begin with. It was a short trip, lasting only a day and a half, but possibly one of the best music conference trips I’ve gone on since my first. Shout out to DBDR.

SXSW Hip-Hop 2009

The homie Matt Sonzala at SXSW just unleashed the official Hip-Hop roster for the music conference this year. In his words:

Below you will find the schedule for all the OFFICIAL hip-hop showcases happening at SXSW 2009. There’s so much happening officially, and of course if you do a little digging around you’ll find that there’s plenty of all day and all night parties this year that feature a lot of hip-hop. But I work with SXSW Officially, so I wanted to make sure you know just how much hip-hop is coming to Austin next week, and why. …

The shows run Wednesday March 18th – Saturday March 21st. Every night, multiple venues. It’s really goin’ down.

We’ve got the whole schedule for you after the jump » (more…)

Daptone Records robbed blind.

In: Music, News, NYC

daptonelogo

So some assholes broke into and stole massive amounts of equipment and one empty safe from the Daptone Records studios/HQ in Brooklyn last night. The Daptone roster reads like a retro-soul/funk all star team. If you’re unfamiliar with Daptone, I suggest that you start catching up now.

From BrooklynVegan:

Friends and associates,

As you may have heard through the grapevine by now, Daptone was broken into last night. Unfortunately, there was a lot of equipment (mics, pre-amps, monitors, turntables, guitars, amps, computers, etc.) stolen and damaged. It is going to take us a while to go through everything and take full stock of what was stolen, and we are not supposed to touch anything until the cops come back to collect fingerprints so we can only guess what’s missing from some mic drawers and cabinets.
And, no, we did not have insurance. We had been shopping around with different companies earlier this month but had not signed a check, so nothing was insured. We are working on replacing the gate in front, installing an alarm system, and getting insurance, but it is President’s day so it’s not going as quickly as we would have liked.

Nydia’s computer was stolen (which wasn’t backed up) and the modems/ phone system was ripped out, so we’ll be relatively out of commission for a few days.

I would like to ask for everyone’s help first in keeping an eye out for all of our stuff showing up on ebay/craigslist/local music shops, and secondly (and more realistically) keeping an eye out for good deals on headphones, mics, pre-amps, etc. I could really use a heads up on any kind of studio package for sale or studio equipment to be possibly bought or borrowed as soon as possible. We have a session scheduled for Friday to lay down some music for (I know this sounds
surreal) Rod Stewart, and I’m going to have to get the studio running by then. I know I’m going to need to find headphones, cables, mics, and pre-amps by then. I’m not sure what else yet.

List of gear and Gabriel Roth’s letter continued below…

FROM GABRIEL ROTH

Upon first glance we are definitely missing:

Fender Super Guitar Amp in case
Fender Deluxe Guitar Amp
A whole bunch of headphones and wires
Nydia’s HP laptop computer
One Desktop MacIntosh Computer
One Purple Audio API style lunchbox with four Purple Audio Biz mic pre-amps
2 Yamaha NS10 monitors
Vintage Harmony Rocket Guitar
One steel string acoustic guitar
Martin Tenor sax in a gig bag
Technics 1200 turntable
Ion USB turntable
Teac Receiver/stereo amp
Sony dual deck CD burner/player
All of our modem/phone system stuff was ripped out and taken.
A whole bunch of condensor and dynamic microphones (I still need to figure out exactly what’s missing) The power supply for my Trident console was tossed and the board was moved (probably not gently) so the status of that is still questionable.
A baldwin organ was tossed and is probably broken.
Lacie External hard drive

Over the next few days, as we sort out the rubble, we are going to figure out what else we lost.

We are putting in a roll down front gate, alarm system, and finally getting our insurance happening this week. We are also going to hire a security guard to watch the house for tonight as the cops and alarm guy seemed pretty confident that they will be back with a truck now that they’ve seen what’s in here.

Thanks for keeping eyes open for us. AND PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ALONG TO ANYONE YOU THINK MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP US.

Thankfully, we all still have our health, ambition, tape machines, and sense of humor in tact. You can slow us down, but you can’t stop us. Sleep well knowing we here at Daptone will continue to…

Keep putting Soul up,
Gabriel Roth

P.S. On a lighter note, it seems like the burglars did drop a few items in order to lift Alex’s old safe out of here, which was VERY heavy, VERY unwieldy, and also VERY EMPTY!

Bonus: Inside the Daptone studios (the one in question) with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.

Misinfo tracks down missing rapper Cam’ron.

In: News, Video

Following up on the reappearance of Cam’ron with a new video/song, “I hate my job” (we feel you on the title Cam, we feel you), Miss Info of NYC’s Hot97 (extended fam FWMJ’s graphic work all over the website), finds and interviews lost long rapper, Cam’ron.

Cam’ron breaks down some of the “beefs” with former Dipset associates, why his disappearance is different from that of D’angelo and most importantly why skinny stewardesses are much like eating fish when you want a steak.

We have a massive travel budget here @ buhbomp, so the powers that be sent their only legal/political correspondent (me) to the National Mall to peep President Obama take the oath.

Barry, (we go way back…I put him onto Common but can he return a phone call?), was in rare form representing the Chi. (who we have mad love for).

What was it like to be chilling with 1.5-2 Million people on the worst kept lawn in America?

1 word – Cold. It was cold as all get out.

Them boys from B-town got this pic of me and my peeps,

holla at us if you was there.
