Sergent: SR-000012 ft. Finsta & SR-00056 (updated)

Remember the time when everybody was talking "Bushwick". Back then every fan of Finsta hoped for a re-release of the rares grooves. Now Sergent Records in collaboration with Finsta himself makes things happen.

Finsta Bundy, the duo who stands for 90s hip-hop, is proud to celebrate the 20th Birthday of the underground classic "Finsta Baby" 12inch by re-releasing their sought after record. The record features also the unreleased track "Activate" produced by Evil Dee.

Back in 1992 the Finsta Baby 12" introduced Finsta to the hip-hop scene. Before that he, Evil Dee and 5Ft. were in the beginning to found the world famous Black Moon. Needless to say that they introduced Buckshot as an MCee later on. A full Finsta bio is available at http://finstabundy.com.

A1: Finsta Baby (Vocal)
A2: Finsta Baby (Instrumental)
B1: Activate (Vocal)
B2: Payday Is Bliss (Vocal)


The release is limited to 150 copies and gets delivered in a sticker cover sleeve designed by Mahon (Macia Crew)

Pre-Orders are live now at http://sergentrecords.bigcartel.com/ ; shipping date expected for early July. The recording comes from the original source, provided by Finsta himself so the sound quality should be excellent. 

My special thanks goes out to my homeboy Walter (Finsta) and Segent records for making this happen. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only.

Update: The first release from Sergent gets a re-release by popular demand but there are mainly two differences to SR-000012.

  1. now available in full picture cover 
  2. includes the additional bonus track "One for the Money" ft Greg Nice 

The record is limited to 150 copies and gets most probably shipped mid of June. The record is already in production to avoid any delays.

Peasant Podium: ft. Silent Someone

With only one 7" single release Silent Someone (from the Bronx) built up his fan base and with his producer skillz he catched the attention of MCs like Oxygen, Emskee, Akbar or El Da Sensei (to only name some).

On Peasant Podium he recently announced the Lab82 12inch but there is good hope that also his full-length project "I Have Company" gets a proper vinyl release. "Yo Sel! Don't coerce me to take this post offline because you don't release this :D"

1. Intro
2. We Got Company ft. Akbar
3. Put It On ft. Mazzi, Vicky Green
4. Lab82 ft. Shaz Ill York, El Da Sensei, Oktober Zero
5. Natural ft. Gee Dubs
6. Interlude
7. King Magnetic ft. King Magnetic
8. A Dope MC ft. LB
9. Grey Skies ft. John Robinson
10. Interlude 2
11. Rhinoceros Funk ft. Rhinoceros Funk
12. Silent Hill ft. Yahzeed

Serato: SR 624-955 ft. DJ Premier

Who would have thought it that Stitch By Stitch would ever post a Serato control vinyl? If people ask me about my favorite hip-hop producer I usually answer it with DJ Premier. Even though Paul C, Pete Rock and Large Professor follow straight after, the first answer remains DJ Premier ... pre-pre-pre-premier.

And therefore it's only logical that a DJ Premier double Serato picture disc pressing deserves to get posted. The record features (beside the serato control tone) four exclusive new tracks featuring NYGz and Lady Of Rage. Serato worked closely with DJ Premier on the two sleeve picture disc artwork images to create this limited run release.

A: My Influences ft. NYGz
A: Chemical Burn ft. Lady Of Rage
A: Spaced Dem Mo (Instrumental)
A: Scarz Face (Instrumental)

B: Serato Control Tone CV02.5

Order: www.store.serato.com (price is a bit tough tho)
