A big shout out to Diplo for showing my riddim “Mad Again” a lot of love on his Mad Decent blog. The tune is with 77Klash spitting and dancehall legend Johnny Osbourne on the chorus. For those of you who’ve heard it on myspace now’s your chance to grab it on an exclusive preview download.
Move quickly because I’m not sure how long it’ll be up there for DL. Wierdly he’s got a different tune called Mad Again coming out on his label with among others a remix from my boy Drop The Lime, great minds think alike I guess.
Watch out for the tune coming soon on the Iron Shirt mixtape as well as on 77Klash’s Code Fi Di Streets EP.
Big up to 77Klash on his recent performance at the Upliftment Jamaica Charity event. Among the newly won believers in the audience was one Russel Simmons who told Klash he was feeling the set, pictured above along with Kelly Rae, Gary Foster and 77Klash (from L to R). One of the standout cuts from the set was a new tune by Klash and myself (Matt Shadetek) featuring Johnny Osborn, called Mad Again. Watch out for that on the forthcoming Iron Shirt street album, a collaborative release on Dutty Artz and Klash City Records.
Thanks to everyone who came down to 205 last thursday. Bigups to Bloody Social and to DJ Jaclyn for letting me do a surprise DJ set when her laptop crashed after our 77Klash/Iron Shirt set. Bigup to Frank151 and Circa for putting the thing together, it was fun. Shouts to RockersNYC fam, Oplus, Jahdan’s Dad, all the fine hipster girlies and everyone singing along during our set.
This is what it looked like:
And this is what we looked like (fresh to death as usual). I’m in the background in the DJ booth.
