Disclaimer: The reason I say ‘kind of’ is because this shit is really early ’06.
After showing up at my girl’s New Year’s Party last night, I immediately noticed the radio playing and no one feelin it. I asked if it was OK to throw my iPod on (since I came prepared, with my RCA-headphone jack chord and all), and she said it was cool. I knew right away what I would bump; DJ Spair’s Mackin’ Mixtape (Oakland Faders) and DJ BCause’s Night of the Remix (4OneFunk), (PS It might be helpful for you two DJs to have links on your myspace pages and crew websites to buy these albums). This shit got the crowd movin, and even though most of the guests at the party weren’t directly listening to the music, I could tell they were feelin it. The best parts of the night was when I would see people would immediately start to dance to the beginning of a song they were familiar with, then go crazy and sing along with the song when they actually recognized who that shit was mixed with…especially when fools went crazy over BCause’s George Micheal beat then stopped and finally noticed that it was remixed with Three Six Mafia’s Stay Fly. Check out www.myspace.com/djspair and www.myspace.com/djbcause to hear their shit and send them a message to put a link on their pages and follow through with their hustle so you can buy their mixes…I guarantee you will like it.

Sacred Hoop is back, dropping their new album Go Hogwild available on www.sacredhoopfan.com. This is the shock studded story of two young men, immoral and hedonistic, who’s sole existence is spent satisfying their weird warped desires. Everyday was full. Every night a sensual orgy; fiendish in their curies and passion. Wealth and leisure afford them every opportunity for every gratification. A shattering study of the safe set for shock proof adults. Everything they touch is stained. Tainted with sex, liquor and drugs, where else could they try their crazed pursuit of kicks?
A reason to toast, the return of Sacred Hoop. Between Luke Sick’s well plotted lyrical debauchery and Vrse Murphy’s sonic buffet, great music gets made. Meant to shake up a squares existence, Go Hogwild is party music void simplicity. If you can’t feel this, then you can’t feel shit. Cheers. – Corey Bloom, Synthesis
The foundation of this brilliant record is producer Vrse Murphy’s densely layered construction, which is so thick, it’s practically unfathomable. Add to all this cuts by DJs Raw-B and the unfuckwitable Quest, and you have a contender for best underground rap record of the year. – Max Sidman, Mesh
Sacred Hoop makes music to hate your parents to, with a catalogue of youthful rebellion-inspired anthems deep enought to keep one thousand angst-filled teenagers from killing themselves…Go Hogwild, chockfull of odes to bleak futures and girls who pack guns. – Sam Ada, FADER
