Bisc1's Strange Love Project Opens Up Our Ears and Eyes


Forget Dangermouse and Girl Talk. Here is the ultimate mashup.


Having designed albums covers for Def Jux and Def Jam, Bisc1, the renowned graffiti artist and emcee, has always blurred the lines between art and music.  For his latest work, The Strange Love Project, Bisc1 called on his most talented friends; 20 visual artists and 10 producers, to reinterpret his previously released album When Electric Night Falls to create a fresh, visually and aurally stimulating new multi-media collaboration.  Featuring remixes of the original album and artistic representations of his songs,The Strange Love Project pushes the boundaries of how music and art can be re-invented, remixed, and visualized.


Take that Viva La Hova.

Vinyl Goldmine?



While vinyl has always been in the hearts of hard-core audiophiles, with music sales on the decline, could it be making a comeback? That's the way it seems. According to Nielsen Soundscan's 2008 sales figures, LP sales were up 89% from last year.  Although the market for vinyl is still relatively small (.01% of all music sales), it's intriguing to witness the revival of what was once deemed an obsolete music format. What may or may not come as a surprise is that all of the top selling records were rock bands such as Radiohead, the Beatles, and Guns 'N Roses.

Welcome to E-HUSTL


EHUSTL has just released two more Bay Area collaborative albums. The first is Word Pimpin' 2: We Don't Need You, featuring Keak Da Sneak, Q-Z, and Baby S. The lead single, "Get Your U On," features Bay Area boss E-40 on the remix.  The second single, "Do It Right," features Snoop Dogg on the remix and generates the same hyphy, trunk-thumping beat that has made the movement so famous.

EHUSTL's second album is Welcome To Scokland and features Keak Da Sneak from Oakland and San Quinn from San Francisco. The album marks the first time these two icons have joined forces to create music that combines the styles of the two cities into one amalgamous supernova of hip-hop.  This project has already proven itself to be a huge success by way of its first single "She Fine," with the video receiving nearly 2.5 million views in 4 days on
