OM Hip-Hop: SSR-301 ft. P.U.T.S.

What up people this is another "BEER" tribute created by People Under The Stairs. Remember: in August 2010 Stitch By Stitch posted the promotion release of Pabst Blue Ribbon's "BEER" 7" hosted by my man Will C.

Next to my clear blue PBR records here we have a yellow coloured Colt45 release. I should write a letter to Becks or Heineken to create a green coloured vinyl for the hip-hop "BEER" fans.

Remix and Instrumental dedicated to the smooth taste of Colt. Limited to 1,000 copies pressed on beer colored vinyl was a free giveaway at People Under The Stairs live shows and with purchase of the Carried Away 2LP (p&c 2009).

A: Beer - Colt45 Mix
B: Beer - Colt45 Instrumental



My special thanks goes out to Derek for sending a copy to my address. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion only!

No Sleep: NSRBNS-01 ft. O.C.

The cat is out the bag. All customers of the last 5 No Sleep Recordings releases will receive a free bonus release, which is and will never be available for sale. The amount of records getting pressed is the number of customers that supported all 5 previous releases and it will be less than 100. So finally No Sleep Records presents: O.C. - O-Zone Extras EP. Again I leave you alone with the words of my man DL who has some fine details to the tracks on the bonus EP. >>>

On the A-Side are the original home-studio 4-Track demos of “Step Into The O-Zone”, “Stay Alive”, and “Visual Picture” that O.C. recorded with a high school classmate / producer (Kemp) shortly before he appeared on “Fudge Pudge”….Famous for being played on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show, these are mastered from the original tapes and are in their full lengths. The last track is a rare Page The Hand Grenade and OC demo, that Buckwild produced.

The B-Side is a collection of alternative and original versions of several “Word…Life” songs. The original mix of “No Main Topic” is interesting because both O.C.’s famously-quieted vocals and Prince Poetry’s ultimately-muted adlib track are prominent in this version. Next, the original version of “Story” has a markedly different hook, utilizing chaotic crowd noises instead of the whispery, repeating “believe it or not” lyrics on the final version. Last, is one of the several remixes of “Born To Live”. This particular version is similar to the bonus cut on the “Word…Life” CD, but features a heavier bassline that was absent from the final, more-sparsely arranged CD version. [source: Personal Email By DL]

A1: “Visual Picture” [Kemp]
A2: “Step Into The O-Zone” (Original Version) [Kemp]
A3: “Stay Alive” [Kemp]
A4: “Weak Ideas” feat. Page The Hand Grenade [Buckwild]
B1: “No Main Topic” (Original Mix) [DJ Ogee]
B2: “Story”(Original Mix) feat. Prince Po [DJ Ogee]
B3: “Born To Live” Remix (Alternate Mix) [Organized Konfusion]

Asphalt: ASP0004 ft. Asphalt Poetry

Imperial was known in the early years as Dj Coolie Bee. He founded Asphalt Records to promote his own crew Asphalt Poetry. After releasing a couple of ep's he invited other local artists to join his crew on a full length lp he called Asphalt Legion. The project turned out to be more than he could handle and eventually broke Asphalt Records.

In search of another way to break into the music scene he sold his equipment and accepted an offer to travel to Sweden. There he made a living hustling dj gigs and working (under-the-table) as a studio hand. In 1999 Imperial returned to California and prepared for a permanent move back to Europe. Before leaving though he was determined to record one last Asphalt Poetry record with EJ.

After a busy year the two finally got to work. Imperial insisted they write a back-to-back rhyme together about their experiences away from the studio. They met at a local brewery and drunk pints of dark beer until they were done. The finished rhyme was entitled "The Break". The other 3 tracks were done in the same style as their first 2 ep's, battle rhymes, raw cuts, and dirty beats. The ep would take almost 2 years to make and was finally completed in 2003. Imperial then packed up and moved to Sweden. That was the last time they recorded. Their third EP never made it to vinyl until now!

A1: Wack Emcee Bashin'
A2: AP Revenge
B1: The Break
B2: Insane Asylum

The release date is the 1st of May 2011. Only 100 copies available (80 copies for Japan, 20 copies for world wide orders). To get your hands on a copy please check out www.asphaltrecords.se/shop for a limited time or I hope you have a good connection to Japan.

My special thanks goes out to DJ Imperial and Asphalt Records. Also I like to thank Martin Catchwreck for updating me on this awesome BOMB. All copyrights reserved by Asphalt Records, posted for promotion use only.
