Exclusive Poster Artwork. Limited Edition – You Gonna Get Yours ?


Designed and created by long time collaborator and friend Chris Malbon, here is a first exclusive look at the movie poster created by one of ‘Creative Magazines’ top 10 global creatives.  This is the first run of the poster and limited to 100 prints only.  Signed by the Artist Chris Malbon and Film Director Pritt Kalsi.  A2 printed on 120GSM Bond.  Money raised will go into finishing up the film and shooting missing scenes.

I remember the many phones calls me and Chris had discussing the new look KING OF THE BEATS, It was after I returned from NYC and spoke to Chris detailing my experience out there, he was inspired and came up with this design.  Inspired by Bed stuy, Brooklyn home base for me and the film crew, Andy Higgs and Steven Ellington.  He looked at the pictures we brought back of shop fronts, signs, streets and buildings, his aim was to capture the spirit of Hip Hop Culture and our time in the states.

We spent one day together having a meeting , brainstorming and planning where we wanted to go with this design.  Not following suit, artistically we wanted to present something new and fresh, injecting a little creativity and spirit into this culture we love so much.  Just as Neville Brody made waves with his work for Depeche Mode and others, this is what we are trying to achieve and translate here into Hip Hop.  Chris showed me some sketches he had made of buildings, alongside some of the current projects he was working on.  Left to his own devices Chris returned to Bristol producing this fine piece of art.

Tomorrow August 9th, is the day of the premier of our film trailer for the movie.  To coincide with the launch day we are releasing this poster.  If you are lover and supported of the culture and art and film making, please feel free to support the team, and purchase a poster.  Shipping day August 30th.

I would like to thank everyone for their support.

Ultramagnetic M.C’s – Critical Beatdown 25 Years Anniversary London show.

Here is something very special for those who support my work and the band the ‘Ultramagnetic  M.C’s’.

One of the greatest Underground Hip Hop acts of all time. Embarked on a European tour to mark 25 years since the release of their critically acclaimed album ‘Critical Beatdown’. 

I have a long history with this group.  In fact the first time I tried to interview them was when they first came to Birmingham City on tour.  In the late 90s when I started working on my Film ‘The Men & Their Music’.  I was introduced to Moe Love by the P-Brothers.  For a couple of years me and Moe spent many hours on the phone, playing each other breaks, beats, talking about music and other stuff.  In 2002 I made a trip to the USA, to start filming the project.  A little nervous as my memories of him was that he looked like the meanest person in hip hop.  In fact he’s one of the coolest.  As a surprise he took me to meet Ced Gee in Harlem and we shot a film. My memories of that meeting Ced wasn’t really into the current state of Hip Hop music, he was involved in other things.  Pursuing his love for Basket Ball. The shoot was very positive.  Ced left with fire in his belly, and I left with amazing footage which lead me to make the film on Paul C.

Returning to the UK I was introduced to Marc Davis from Chicago, who is die hard Ultras fan, so much so he made it his mission to reform the group.  Throughout that whole period I was here in the UK, being played the beats and tracks as they were being made.  Later Marc, TR and Moe he dropped the ‘Ultra Foundation’ Album. It was outstanding LP, possibly the worst hip hop cover of all time but the music was second to none.  Most of that should of been the ‘Best kept Secret’ LP.  I returned to the U.S and shot 2 of the videos for that Album plus a short film introducing TR Loves protege Fred Beanz Later I went onto produce their last single with new M.C, Fred Beanz.

The ironic thing is I will never forget going to Ourprice records in 1988 with Jason Coombes as he brought the cassette never thinking I would later work with the group.

ultrapicIts not been a easy road for the group as you can imagine.  So ofcourse when they contacted me to let me know the tour was on, I had to make sure I got to do something with the group to capture this moment.  Although not a member of the band, I feel a part of their legacy.  Sadly i could not join them for the whole tour due to my work commitments.  I put this together for the group and the fans.  Imagine what I could of done being on the tour.  That would of been one hell of a film.  In the mean time enjoy this.  Look out for the future DJ MOE LOVE ‘DIGGIN IN THE TAPES LP’.  For that project I revamped the original ULTRA Logo.  This was a important and landmark moment for us all.  Filmed by Pritt Kalsi and his team, Andy Higgs and Jay King.  We are available to film / edit shows and events. For further info on costs please feel free to contact us.

Big thanks to : Ced Gee, Tr Love, Kool Keith, Moe Love, Marc Davis & all the Staff at the Grand Clapham Junction, London

Veteran hip-hop producer Diamond D has helped out with several of rap music’s most acclaimed LPs, including A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory and the Fugees’ The Score.

In 1992, he recorded his first solo album, the underground classic Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop (which was released as by Diamond & the Psychotic Neurotics). Although it never sold very many copies, it increased his status, and he worked with Illegal, House of Pain, KRS-One, and the Pharcyde during the mid-’90s. A host of top-flight rappers returned the favor for his sophomore album, Hatred, Passion & Infidelity, including Busta Rhymes, Phife Dawg (A Tribe Called Quest), and Pete Rock. – John Bush.

Recently Diamond has returned to his first love DJing. His Breakbeats 45′s only tour see’s Diamond going back to the early days of the 70s block party jams. When B-Boys danced to the sounds of classic Breakbeats being cut up on the ones and two’s. Authentic 45′s, none of this breakbeat mash up music that a lot of DJ’s are playing today. If you are running a B-Boy event and are looking for that special DJ that takes things back to the original way don’t hesitate to contact or Book Diamond D. Respect the art form. Keep all the elements alive in the purest form.

DJ Too Tuff 1986 mix

I heard this, this morning via DJ Too Tuff. This mix is from 1986. Reminds me why i used to be glued to radio listening to pirate radio shows, we craved to hear something new.

Although this is from 1986, this is the first time I heard it. Check out MC Mechanism, this guy is sick. Reminds me of LL – Mikey D. Great rhymes voice and delivery. Next month Along side 4orce and Andy Higgs we are heading out to see Too Tuff. Its been long long overdue. I firmly believe hes one of the most un-talked about Programmers from the Golden Era. Looking forward to meeting him and shooting some footage.

KING OF THE BEATS Helps develop the new MPC

KOTB was invited to be involved with a very special project. We was chosen to join the UK Akai team to work on prototype of the MPC Renaisance.

We sat in on meetings and studio sessions with the new product that I can say in its infancy was highly disclosed. It was never shown in public. Everyone who saw it had to sign a release.

My self I was lucky. I think I was the only person never to sign one. for 1 week we was locked in a Dairy Studios over in Brixton as producers were invited to test it and give their opinion.

Anyhow. I filmed all the sessions for the American team. Having some time on my hands I freely put this video together which fell into the hands of the head of Akai. This was used as their first promo video for the project.
