THE MVZE - Summer Treat #FD On Afrihooop

THE MVZE came by through a chance encounter between two enigmatic yet very productive fellas
from Brussels,Belgium at a studio downtown where they wrote 3 songs in an evening. The obvious
chemistry and shared music influences were the ignition key to their forming a project based on their
members’ collective artistic experiences. Their desire to create timeless and trendy sounds
accompanied by intimate melodies filled with emotional energy lends THE MVZE character and gives
them a twist that interestingly prevents them from falling into the trappings of sounding “already heard” .

The music is edgy & has a modern vibe which bridges the gap between avant-R&B, hip hop & soul music with a sparkle of Pop. What they bring to the table is quality freshly composed music that reflects the spirit of the now and tomorrow, laced with a huge dose of original vibes; sweating it out on stage and making sure that audiences have a good time.

À propos

Sociálně-dokumentární projekt, který objevuje a propojuje českou a zahraniční street culture. | A social-documentary project which reveals and connects Czech and foreign street culture. 
Street culture je něco víc než jen hudba, sport nebo tanec. Street culture je způsob myšlení a života. Má své hodnoty. Pojďme tyto společné hodnoty sdílet a pomoci rozvíjet v krajinách, které neměly to štěstí žít v blahobytu. Protože možná tam je najdeme nejčistší. Projekt objevuje street culture v krajinách, kde tento typ kultury pomáhá přežít. Propojuje místní komunitu s českými ikonami vyznávajícími stejnou kulturu. One Blood dává příležitost spolupracovat a pomoci.

Street culture is something more than just music, sport or dance. Street culture is a way of thinking and living. It has its value. Let's share these values and help to develop countries that were not lucky enough to live in prosperity. The project discovers the street culture in countries where this type of culture help to "survive". We connect Czech and local people who share the same culture. One Blood projects gives the artists the opportunity to work with locals and possibly help them.

Infos de base


24. sprna 2013 se opět na zahrádne u České Lípy uskuteční open air akce. Tentokrák neponese název JUST FULL, ale ONE BLOOD.

One Blood je sociálně-dokumentární projekt Andreje Štuka a Jarmily Štukové www.jarmilakovarikova.com který objevuje a propojuje českou a zahraniční street culture, a to v krajinách, kde tento typ kultury pomáhá přežít. Spojuje české ikony s umělci v rozvojových zemích, kteří vyznávající stejnou kulturu a dává jim příležitost navzájem spolupracovat.

Projekt si klad
e za cíl pomoci jednotlivcům a přiblížit lidem žijícím v České republice život lidí se zajímavými osudy, pocházejících ze zemí, kde jsou například breakdance, rap či box, jedinou možnou činností, jak bojovat s beznadějí. Pojďme tyto společné hodnoty sdílet a pomoci rozvíjet v krajinách, které neměly to štěstí žít v blahobytu. Protože možná právě tam je najdeme nejčistší. Projekt je zajímavou sondou do míst, kde lidé nežijí v podmínkách, které bereme v České republice jako samozřejmost, ale přesto u nich můžeme najít nadšení pro věc, vděčnost a lásku k životu.

Právě Uganda je jednou ze zemí, kterou se podařilo s Českou republikou propojit. Díky benefiční akci, která proběhla v pražském klubu Chapeau Rouge, se podařilo zprostředkovat Mc Burneymu, raperovi pocházejícímu z hlavního města Kampaly, cestu a několik koncertů v České republice.

Marco Polo "Astonishing" f. Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C., Tragedy Khadafi & DJ Revolution (Usa) #FD

"This shit is called Astonishing for a reason. Enjoy. PA2 coming soon."
 Marco Polo.
It’s been six years since Marco Polo took the hip-hop world by storm with his Rawkus/Soulspazm Records debut LP, Port Authority. This album not only established the Toronto, Canada native as one of the top emerging producers in his field, but also transformed Marco into a very sought-after collaborator as well. He has since gone on to release the collaborative project with Torae, Double Barrel, in 2009 and has also worked with acclaimed artists such as; Masta Ace, Special Teamz, Heltah Skeltah, Buckshot, KRS-One, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Sean Price, Copywrite, Vinnie Paz and Large Professor.
After generating tremendous momentum this summer with his free LP, Newport Authority 2, Marco Polo returns to offer up the highly anticipated sequel, PA2: The Director’s Cut, which is the culmination of thousands of hours of creative energy, manpower, crate-digging, knob-twisting, Newport-smoking and coffee-bingeing, to create an impeccable infrastructure of music that will resonate with hip-hop fans across the world.
Fans have already heard glimpses of what MP has in store for PA2: The Director’s Cut, as his heartfelt dedication to Gang Starr’s Guru (“G.U.R.U.” featuring Talib Kweli & DJ Premier) not only went viral in a day, but also clearly resonated with the late MC’s friends and family as they offered up their support for the track. The LP’s most recent leak, “3-O-Clock” did what hip-hop fans have been impatiently waiting on for over fifteen years; reuniting Organized Konfusion (Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po) on the same track. Official music videos for these tracks will be released in the weeks leading up to the album. The “G.U.R.U.” video is a nostalgic tribute to the legendary lyricist, directed by Todd Angkasuwan, while “3-O-Clock”, directed by The Doppelgangaz, effectively captures the grimy and gritty New York vibe on this MP x OK collabo.
PA2: The Director’s Cut is not a “compilation” project. Rather, much like projects from the producers (Jay Dee, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, etc), that have influenced Marco, it’s a seamlessly blended piece of art featuring a who’s-who of the industry’s top MCs; each track crafted and specialized to fit each MC’s strengths. This is evident throughout PA2. On “West Coast Love” Marco displays his versatility, cooking up some premo G-Funk for West Coast legends MC Eiht and King Tee to spread their Cali love on. Further, “Astonishing” featuring Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C. and Tragedy is like riding shotgun to “The Tunnel” in Doc Brown’s DeLoreon, and the shimmering “Strange Brew” with Gangrene (Alchemist & Oh No) pushes the BPMs to maximum levels. The LP’s apt closing track, “Glory” (Finish Hard) featuring Masta Ace, A.G. and Posdnuos (of De La Soul) offers up a hilarious commentary from Ace on Marco’s tedious “work ethic” and ends with commentary from everyone’s favorite beer-drinking Canucks Bob and Doug McKenzie (of Strange Brew fame) who revisit their “Strange Brew” days.
For nearly 10 years, Marco’s mission has remained the same: to keep the masses moving and their heads bobbing, and PA2: The Director’s Cut is a shining testament to that. “I put together an album that I felt picked up where Port Authority left off but updated it for 2013. I'm proud to finally let this album out into the world. It's a long-ass album and I don't give a flying #!@*. At the end of the day I'm excited with the finished product; which took me five-plus years to create. DJ connoisseurs can also expect some of finest-quality cutting courtesy of DJ Revolution, DJ Premier, Shylow, DJ Linx & DJ Romes. Moving forward, I'm seriously looking forward to touring this record and smacking them MP pads live for all those inviting me to do so. Catch me traveling the world again soon backing my big bro Masta Ace, as well as rocking some solo production sets for the hip-hop heads.” Marco states.

Slam - Poetry Made in Botswana : Mandisa Mabuthoe performs "Ribbons to Bind My Hair"

Botswana-based poet Mandisa Mabuthoe performs "Ribbons to Bind My Hair."

Ribbons to Bind My Hair
I’m not so twisted anymore
I’m looking for ribbons to bind my hair
I cant be the fairest of them all
I cant be so loose like Cinderella
I am not going to sugarcoat the witch hunt
I am not waiting to be rescued
I think I’m waiting to be born
But these days its not so twisted anymore
Because the villains and the princesses
They all get paid the same
The poets and the Princes
They all sound the same
Dreamy and twisted and far away from pleasure
Reckless and rebellious and far away from home
Looking for complicated ribbons and strings
to bind my tongue
but these days I’m not so twisted like a robe
I cant be too soft and thick
My skins gone thin against the bone
But I’m not so shackled anymore
And its not so hard to walk away
Not to forbidden things I don’t regret
Not to broken promises and biscuits and fairy tales
I wont forget
Rays of light untie the ribbons that bind my feet
Red ribbons to lace up my tattered boots
Pink ribbons to hide all the purple hues
So no one knows Ive been abused
Orange ribbons the slippery kind
So as not to confine my wings the day
[I'm ready to find] the day
I’m ready to fly

Plus tard ils vont fonder le fameux groupe SKADRON 113 faisant partie du collectif ALIEN ZIK basé aux P.A. Il est le premier MC Sénégalais à avoir pratiqué du BEAT BOX avec sa bouche.

Participant dans plusieurs albums nationaux et internationaux avec son groupe SKADRON 113, il reste l'un des groupes les plus scéniques du Hip-Hop Galsén. Ayant fait des ateliers lors d'un festival hip-hop en 2003 avec le Saïan Supa Crew, REX-T reste l'un des artistes les plus sollicités. Il a eu à faire plusieurs jingles pour des télés, comme Africa7, WalfTV, et radios comme Nostalgie, Sénégal FM, Zik FM, Oxygéne FM, Rewmi FM, Walf FM; et des spots publicitaires, en même temps, il a eu beaucoup d’expériences en tant que présentateur scénique dans des festivals tél que Craven Musique. Sans oublier, qu’il a été aussi sollicité en tant que membre du jury pour des concours hip hop.

Avec sa polyvalence, (chanteur, rappeur, présentateur, beatboxing), il bat le record de featuring dans ce milieu. Des projets avec Alien Zik, comme la sortie de leur mixtape « RAP DAT com » en 2009, en 2010 le collectif nous revient avec cette fois ci un album intitulé «BENEN PLANET». Un nouvel opus est en gestation et sortira au courant de l’année 2013.
