Hello,

My name's Dan aka Pings, DJ/producer. I'm 27 and run www.KingUnderground.com an online hip hop store/label based in the United Kingdom.

I just wanted to introduced myself on the the STMB forum and to put a few words on the thread so if you don't know what we are all about at kingUnderground then hopefully this will give you an idea.

I'm going to start posting topics on our 'KingUnderground Shop Thread' so if you want to keep up to date with KU on STMB you can.

KingUnderground has been running for 5 years, I started it with a friend back in 2005. Unfortunately my friend/business partner decided he wanted to do other things with his life and left KU about a year after opening. I wanted to run a 'Stay True' hip hop shop (originally just strictly vinyl) and create a Fatbeats type UK store. I pretty much started KU at completely the wrong time as it seems hip hop went down hill a bit after 2005. I felt though that KingUnderground could hopefully help keep the scene alive. I'm not sure we have done that but I'd like to think we've played a part and are still adding to it.

I've joined the STMB forum to get involved with all the hip hop gossip and to let people know about KingUnderground.com
I'm not sure how many of you do know about KingUnderground but I'm not on here just to plug releases and make money, hopefully you can tell I'm a true hip hop head.

It's very tough running an independent hip hop/record store and trying to survive is very tough at the moment. If you can come and check us out that would be appreciated big time, I'm also keen to know your likes and dislikes as well of KingUnderground and how we can make it better for you?

We stock a lot of Stones Throw product as well!

Just to finish off you can download any of our FREE Podcasts here if you fancy a listen:

Anyway, looking forward to hearing from you!

Peace,
Dan @ KingUnderground

SHIPPING NOW @ www.KingUnderground.com!

So.......I should have released this one a while ago, but I thought that these tracks would find a home somewhere with vocals of some kind attached to it.....Oh well, no big deal....I always will make more and more and more beats...I LOVE THIS GAME !

Volume 2 has a few old potential Gang Starr tracks that we never used back in 1993 for our "Hard To Earn" LP, but they were not better than the ones that made the cut....since they sound dated next to my style of production in the 2000 era, now YOU have it....And don't 4get the BONUS cut at the end of the LP which I will continue to add only to these releases......Much Love to all of the supporters of Vol. 1 and especially all of the MC's that sent versions spittin' lyrics over them for demos, mixtape CD's, and freestyling on radio mixshows.....I actually forgot to add some ill beats that I had intended for Vol. 2, so that means Vol. 3 will be next.......Year Round Records will ALWAYS keep the Vinyl Alive and QUALITY will NEVER be compromised..... NOD YA HEADS 2 THIS !!! - DJ Premier

Coming soon on KingUnderground/We Stay True Records.

Please CLICK HERE for the audio.

Mr Brown, (UK producer) has been on the scene for a while now, working largely under the radar on various projects and collaborations with artists such as Planet Asia (Cali Agents), MCM, C-Lone, Audit, Conflix & Logan to name but a few.

After the successful release of Mr Browns' debut instrumental EP 'Beats For Days' his next vinyl offering comes in the form of a limited edition (300 copies), hand numbered, clear red 7 and features the lyrical talents of OH 10s own Copywrite! This song was originally recorded in 2008 and has yet to be released....... until now!

The song is called 'We Don't Quit' and is pure boom bap hip hop through and through. Heavy hard hitting beat, tight scratches and Copywrite coming ripping it up on the sort of beat you rarely get to hear him on these days, basically all the ingredients needed to cook up a hip hop banger!

As an added bonus Mr Brown has thrown in 2 extra bonus beats that are exclusive to the 7 vinyl release (please note the bonus beats will NOT be available on the digital download version).

Copywrite, a member of the MHZ (MegaHertz) crew emerged from the underground scene in 1998 along with his group "MHz" with a debut single on Fondle 'em Records called, ''World Premier''.

After deciding to pursue his solo career, mainly due to DJ Mighty Mi (a member of the group, High & Mighty) not wanting to sign his group, "MHz", in 2000 he released "Holier Than Thou" with producer RJD2 on Eastern Conference/Rawkus Records. He then went on to release his full length LP, ''The High Exhaulted''.

After many major collaborations with artists such as, J Dilla, Sean P, Royce Da 59, Jake One, J-Zone, Rhyme Asylum, RJD2, to name but a few, the US MC, from Columbus, Ohio has teamed up with the UK producer Mr Brown!

K DEF 'For Def's Sake' (Limited Edition) 7"

SHIPPING NOW @ www.KingUnderground.com

K-Def is a legendary music producer from New Jersey who has worked with artists such as LL Cool J, Marley Marl, Ghostface Killah, Real Live, P Diddy, Lords Of The Underground, Ol Dirty Bastard, Heavy D & more. “For Def's Sake” is an instrumental track that pairs haunting vocal wails & acoustic guitars with jazzy vibraphones & banging drums in a way that keeps the listener on his toes while demanding multiple replays.

The B-Side features a strong composition entitled “Times Change” which is especially notable for it's unique, evolving arrangement which continuously morphs into new patterns & sequences as K-Def introduces a variety sounds in a masterful fashion, all the way until the track fades out.

By now you are surely aware that Redefinition Records is all about Quality Over Quantity, and this record is as good as any previous Redef release. In addition to his plans with Redefinition Records, K-Def also has new releases in the works for quality record labels such as DWG, Slice Of Spice & Mello Music Group. There's a good reason why producers such as Kanye West & Just Blaze have cited K-Def as an early influence and the music on this record and his upcoming releases truly serve as a testament to the man's abilities.

WAX POETICS 'Issue #48' (Nina Simone) £8.99

PRE-ORDER, Shipping mid September, date TBC.

Latest Installment from Wax Poetics.. Issue 48!!

Hip Hop, Jazz, Funk & Soul Magazine.

Featuring: Nina Simone, Theophilus London, Shock G, Billy Cox, Yabby You, Dom Salvador, Neul, Hudson Mohawke, the Roland TR-808, Neu! Gil Scott-Heron and Fonce Mizell remembered Swamp Dogg, Sarah Vaughan, Odyssey, The Beastie Boys, and Midnight Movers Unltd. rePosted Imageiscovered.

Nina Simone had no filter. She spoke with candor about civil rights when many in her position didn’t dare. She sang about uncomfortable subjects and made sure her audiences understood what those songs were really about.

Setting the contemporary archetype for a breakthrough artist, Theophilus London dropped three mixtapes before releasing any product for sale. Utilizing a mix of ’80s downtown art/music aesthetics and postmodern viral freedom, he put art ahead of commerce and gained fame without the help of a major label or marketing push. Known for the clowning antics of his alter ego, Digital Underground’s Humpty Hump, rapper Shock G was actually very serious about music. Billy Cox gigged with Jimi Hendrix in the Army, worked the chitlin circuit in the South, played bass as an R&B session man
in Nashville, and backed countless stars on television. When the guitar god called on him to join his new band with Buddy Miles on drums, Cox brought gritty Southern ammunition to the Band of Gypsys.

K DEF Feat. LL Cool J ‘Year Of The Hip Hop’ 10”

PRE-ORDER - Street date is set for October 28th, TBC.

After several failed attempts by other labels to drop this incredible unreleased LL Cool J gem, Slice-of-Spice is proud to present ‘Year Of The Hip Hop’ as a limited edition 10”, with incredible artwork by Joe Buck.

Back in 1994 K-Def was working on some beats out of the B Room in Marly Marl's House Of Hits when LL Cool J walked in on his session and said "let's make some tracks together". Uncle L had always wanted to rhyme on a track using the famous ESG breakbeat 'UFO', so he had Def lay it down with some scratches and then went to town with the mic. Both thought they had a sure fire hit on their hands but unfortunately it was never used.
The DAT tape of the studio session was feared lost for several years before it eventually turned up stuck behind a radiator! Now, 17 years later, K-Def and Slice-of-Spice are proud to present 'Year Of The Hip Hop' in all its vinyl glory.
Once again we're coming at you with strong cover art from the legendary Joe Buck, and personally we think this is his best one yet!

Full color art work with a 3mm spine
Limited edition 10''

EMSKEE 'The Complex Engineer' EP £15.49

Posted Image

The DWG crew are excited to announce there latest release, by Emskee "The Complex Engineer From New Jersey". Consisting of 6 previously unreleased tracks on vinyl.

Black vinyl / Sticker Cover / 350 Copies / One Sheet

Back in the early 1990's before radio stations became dominated by advertising and marketing genius and allowed jocks more flexibility to implement personal music selections and the record industry was still about individual A&R representatives for labels looking for the next big thing to break out. Emskee was right in the thick of the hungry and talented, to show the world that his rhyming skills were more than worthy.
He, along with the tight friendship and talented production skills of Kayzee The White Soul (now known as Nick Wiz....with impressive production credits for Rakim, Chubb Rock, Chino XL, Cella Dwellas, Shabaam Shadeeq, and more), and the original battle DJ, Slyce from Teaneck, New Jersey stayed in the studio making demos to shop....
