We kicked off this evening's show with the now legendary Battle of the Beats segment. This week's theme: Money, dollars, ends, greenbacks, cash, flow, moola, bucks, gwap, and all other applicable synonyms. Once again, we strayed from the obvious picks, such as C.R.E.A.M., I Love The Dough, Gimme The Loot, and so on. The Big M pick of the night was DJ Babu & Rakaa Iriscience's Ends To Means, while TwoFace Al chose The Dough by Prodigy & Alchemist. Both solid tracks, and if you haven't heard them, hit up the URP Facebook page to take a listen and let us know what you think.
We were then joined by the MC half of Dragon Fli Empire, Teekay. We discussed some upcoming shows, particularly the February 21st stop at The Biltmore in Vancouver. Dragon Fli Empire will be tearing it down with Vancity's own Emotionz, among others! Hit up up www.DragonFliEmpire.com for many more tour dates and all the latest from the team, including a new release from the other half of Dragon Fli Empire, DJ Cosm. Also follow Teekay on Twitter RIGHT HERE.
As if that wasn't good enough, Heatwave and some of the Killawatt fam rolled through the studio to promote his new project, The Masses vol. 2. We also discussed Heatwave's artistic progression through doing all of his own mixing and recording on his first project. Vol. 2 lets the fans in on this progression. We also got into his relations with other Vancouver artists, as well as some huge upcoming shows in Vancouver: February 18th at Fortune Sound Club alongside Fashawn and Evidence, and February 23rd, opening for Dogg Pound at Bar None. Head over to www.KillawattRecords.ca for tour dates and of course, to download The Masses Vol. 2, FREE.99!
