People Under The Stairs - Live in Brighton, UK 2000

OK so I've not posted anything in bare time. Kinda comes with the territory of living a fair few thousand miles away. Still, I ripped this footage off the accompanying DVD for People Under The Stairs' Stepfather album. I edited it a bit too so it was just the Brighton footage.

This was the first show I ever went to, if it was 2000 I must have been 14 haha! I remember being so fucked up for it, even to the point of slumping on a bin outside the venue while waiting in line. Perked up a bit when we went in though and we ended up at the front row leaning against the barriers and when the show started I was right as rain. You can see me and me two mates in the video, this is still one of the best shows I've ever been to so I was well chuffed when I bought this DVD in 2006 and saw me in it!

This isn't hip-hop either but many tunes that have been sampled in classic hip-hop joints. I put this together for a couple of people who didn't know too much about the funkier side of life, so thought I'd post it up here too. All at 320kbps for you audiophiles.

(and why is it on a Brighton Hip Hop blog? I used to live there, is that good enough?!)

Laura Vane & The Vipertones - Steam

I can't remember where I heard about this Brighton based girl, I think it may have been from Craig Charles' Funk & Soul show on BBCRadio6. I've heard some of her earlier stuff which is more housey, but with The Vipertones she's dropping some seriously heavy funk. She dropped her band's self-titled LP, "Laura Vane & Vipertones" in August 2009... Not hip-hop I know, but definitely dope.

Gi3mo & Jae Genius - Still Dreaming (Evolution '07)

Local faces Gi3mo & Jae Genius dropping ish heavy for the masses. Dope tune here.

South Coast Documentary Trailer

So many questions about this one. When's the final cut? Who is the guy rolling off the alphabetic roll call? I did have more but I can't remember?

Also has a snippet of the video to Say What by "BG" & Buzz, anyone got the full length cut?!

HP & Devise - Double Damage (Video)

You all know the name. And the song. If you don't, you need to check this now.

Jehst, Braintax & Mystro - Staircase to Stage (Live @ Concorde2 19-07-03)

This was one of the greatest shows I'd ever been to, and hosted a whole myriad of performers from YNR, LowLife etc. Then I go onto Soulseek about a week later and someone's got this video uploading? I messaged him about it and he said it was him who filmed it, small world, eh?

Good video though, even if it is short (I remember him saying his camera ran out of battery. As this show was in 2003 the quality shows it was obviously a camcorder so fair play I guess!)
