DJ GrazzHoppa Intricate Moves 2

Whetting the appetite for next months release of Intricate Moves Vol 2, created by Belgium’s very own scratch king DJ Grazzhoppa, Chess Move Cartel has made available a free download single and promo mix. Weezy finds out more about the album, and the Grazzhoppa empire, in conversation with the man himself.

Weezy: DJ Grazzhoppa, welcome to the Chess Move Cartel movement! Can you introduce yourself to the people?

Grazzhoppa: Thanks Weezy, it’s an honour to be a part of this movement. My name is DJ Grazzhoppa. I came to this planet in the year of the funk – 72 – so that’s why I’m here; to spread the funk! The first vinyl release I was cuttin’ on was the 93 limited edition 12″ by Blade (691 Influential) on the B-side of Clear The Way, called They ain’t Shit to Me. I’m European DMC Champ 91, and came third in the world final ITF 98.

fokis - salute

Not so long ago I posted a new Fokis track called #JustSayin which is featured on his forthcoming “AVintage State of Mind” project that will be available to download on 21st February 2012. Fokis returns with the second leaked track from the project titled #Salute (King Tee), which as the title suggests pays homage to the West Coast artist. Fokis revists King Tee’s classic “Act a Fool” for his own version of the track, and furthermore announces that King Tee himself will be featuring on “A Vintage State of Mind”. Please check the previous track from Fokis titled #JustSayin which featured Sadat X, and you can also watch the brand new video for Fokis – #Salute (King Tee) on the youtube player below.

Chess Move Cartel – This Is Actual Dope [Interview]

• January 26, 2012 • Comments (0)

Chess Move Cartel - This is Actual dope

Chess Move Cartel - This is Actual dope

Chess Move Cartel’s next collaboration sees Shadowstar Boxing Academy dropping the verses on some smokin’ DJ AD beats, with cuts provided by the scratch dealer himself, DJ Jabbathakut. Weezy tracks the supply chain of This is Actual Dope Vol 1

Weezy: DJ AD – how would you describe your sound? And how have you applied it to this, your first CMC joint?

DJ AD: I haven’t really got a sound to be honest; I am many sounds on a daily basis and any moment can evoke a different style of music from me, be it hip hop, funk, house or another genre. I gave Shadowstar Boxing Academy (SBA) around 40 beats and they chose what they wanted to use. Listening to the finished product now, I can see their choices as something unique for the CMC label – not straight-up hip hop beats, but a varied approach aiming at the ‘thinker’ beats, as well as head nod!
