DON’T SLEEP: Sir Froderick/T-Dredz “MyNiGGAzEP”/”Sk8_bored” [BEAT TAPES]

When I saw Frod & T-Dredz at the last JASS event I asked them what was up and Froderick told me that there was something in the works. When I told T-Dredz I needed another beat tape from him on Instagram the next day he said one was on the way. I JUST saw a picture of a split Sir Froderick/T-Dredz physical beat tape on Instagram a few minutes ago then my iPhone 3GS goes off. It’s an email from Froderick with these links. There is a physical split Sir Froderick/T-Dredz beat tape and only 24 have been produced but you can cop both digitally via Bandcamp.  “MyNiGGAzEP” and “Sk8_bored” are both dope, I need to visit The Dunngeon one of these damb days.

DON’T SLEEP: JASS #9: M. Constant Live Beat Set @ Phoenix Landing (5.15.2012) [LIVE FOOTAGE]

On a pre-selected Tuesday evening from 9 PM – 1 AM resident DJ’s T-Dredz & Jassy Jeff alongside visual artist VJ Renzo bring in special invited guests to perform live. Last night’s headliner was M. Constant whose “Bugged EP” just dropped on the JASS Bandcamp yesterday.

I was only going to shoot 15 minutes of his set initially until a few things occurred resulting in 4 pieces of footage from two separate phones. First off, I was jostled from behind while shooting on the iPhone 4 and I had ultimately had to reboot that phone. I pulled out the iPhone 3GS and shot with that until some drunk jackass dancing knocked THAT phone outta my hand. I picked it up and started shooting again until my iPhone 4 was back up and running then I shot the last 5+ minutes of M. Constant’s set with it. Don’t sleep…
