Piecelock 70 / Chemistry: ft. People Under The Stairs

We all probably know the feel of "damn, I have missed it". That happened to me early December when I realized I have missed the sales of the "Triple Digits EP" overrun from P.U.T.S. a few days before.

A handful of rare overrun pressings from the factory of the Triple Digits EP - originally only available with purchase of Acid Raindrops Surfboard package - became available on The rarest vinyl People Under The Stairs ever made got sold for one day and its suppose to be never repressed or reissued again.

Some say it's the greatest rap song ever made about surfing, or at least the only one, and it came on custom clear vinyl with opaque blue splatters.

A1: Triple Digits ft. People Under The Stairs
A2: I Can ft. Jason Bannett
B1 Buckets ft. Thes One
B2: Bless You ft. Jason Bannett

Order: sorry, sold out :(

Well this is how life goes, I promote rare and limited releases for years but who remembers me from time to time? - nobody. However in line with the other over 1.000 records on this blogspot it deserves to get posted and if you ever come across a resell copy you don't want to buy, maybe remember me?

The Soulman "Phill Most Chill" and producer Mac McRaw present "No Rap, No Crap" in the "2005 Raw Rock It To Me Remix" version and press it deep in flat black plastic and then house it in a picture sleeve graphically designed like the 2005 LP "Lo-Fi Theory".

In 2004 Phill gave Mac a few tracks from the Lo-Fi sessions including accapella versions of unreleased tracks for a remix project. So this is what we finally have here. The 7" contains vocal and instrumental version. The distribution comes via Kista's "Soundweight Records" label.

Fresh Pressings: FPI-008 ft. Soundsci

"Walk The Earth" is the 3rd full length album of international super-crew "Soundsci". The title reflects that Soundsci are from all over the globe, each member having different perspectives and skills, yet coming together with one mind to remind everyone why they love Hip Hop.

So far Soundsci released most of the release on their own imprint "WorldExpo" but has recently decided to collaborate with Diggers With Gratitude to release the album on Fresh Pressings International.

"In an age where the phrase "in one ear, out the other" seems more pertinent than ever, Soundsci strive to take the listener on a journey ... It is of great importance to all members of the crew to remain progressive both lyrically and musically, whilst retaining all that they have learned from their long path to reach this moment.

B-Line: Interview With Specifik

It's been a while since the last interview on Stitch By Stitch. This is the first of two interviews for Sep./Oct. but now I'd like to welcome Simon "Specifik" (B-Line) here on the blog.

SBS: Simon, welcome on Stitch By Stitch and thank you very much for taking the time. I know it's a very busy and exciting time because you are about to release your first solo project. Let's start traditionally with an introduction.
Specifik: Thank you and what an honour it is to be included on your blog. For those that don't know me I am Specifik of B-Line Recordings UK, full time DJ, Producer, Writer, Husband and Father of three amazing children.

SBS: Alone in the Stitch By Stitch bookmarks I count 9 releases with your involvement that have been posted on the blog over the past few years, bet there were more. Most of them are probably on your own label imprint "B-Line Recordings". Please introduce B-Line to the audience.

Specifik: B-Line Recordings is an independent record label based in the UK that encompasses all elements of Hip Hop culture. My sole aim is to provide a platform for artists to present their work through the medium of vinyl. This as we all know is the holy grail for any aspiring Hip Hop artist. It is also important for me to be able to promote and distribute products real Hip Hop fans can enjoy.


SBS: Release #21 on B-Line is your solo project "Eighty3". What is the story behind the release title and what makes it different to other releases you have been involved in? 

Specifik: The title was simple as the album reflects my journey in Hip Hop, this started in 1983. For me it was a dream come true to create an album like "Eighty3", it has taken years of hard work with the label and as a producer to get to this point. Not only to be able to not only have the platform to do it but also to have the friendships and mutual respect of the artists involved to allow me to do it. I cant begin to tell you how humbled I am and how fortunate I feel to be able to create it. Most of these guys featured are my heroes, I am a fan of the music first so to be able to call them friends in 2016 is just incredible.

SBS: The list of people involved in "Eighty3" is long and full of friends and companions. Time for some shout outs and maybe a few dirty little secrets?

Specifik: Putting the featured artists to one side for a second, here are some of people who essentially made it possible for me: Matty Tibble worked so hard to bring the product together graphically, the guy is a genius and a good friend. Rola is the man who mixed and mastered the whole album, without a doubt one of the finest engineers in Hip Hop. Dudley aka Whirlwind D for continually flying the B-Line flag, he works hard to push and promote every project. I also have to thank Trevor Dare Loveys, John Dyer, Paul Subtwo, Missing Stewart and Dibz who have all provided incredible artwork for this project. Thank you all . . . Another person who supports everything I do is Shane aka Crease, massive thanks to him as he is so passionate about the label and what were trying to achieve. Dirty secret wise I just cant tell you unless I see you in person! I could say Uncle Mic Nitro is a liability but everyone already knows that !

SBS: ... and Stitch By Stitch ;) ... What more can we expect from Specifik in the next years?

Specifik: I already have a few projects in the pipeline including one with a certain German label. I hope to continue the success of the label and keep flying the flag for Hip Hop in Europe.

SBS: Without a doubt music is an important part of our life but I know that you are also very active in charity. Please tell us what charity you support and how people could possibly donate, I know every Penny counts.

Specifik: I have a beautiful daughter called Neive who has Downs Syndrome, she is my absolute world. The reason we work so hard to raise awareness and money is so parents and children have an opportunity to give their child the best start in life. Children with Downs lives can be improved significantly through various therapy sessions and support which are not available or limited on the UKs NHS. These include speech and language, music therapy and physiotherapy, all of which are essential. The charity I support is called Downright Perfect, if anyone wishes to help through fundraising or donations please 


SBS: Simon, thank you very much for all the insights. I wish all the best for you and our family, your label and music activities. We keep in touch.

Specifik: Thank you for taking the time to ask me some questions. I hope you all enjoy "Eighty3" and please do feel free to hit me up on facebook with any feedback or just to say hello. For my friends in Germany, myself Killa Instinct, The Dookie Squad, Project Cee & Whirlwind D will be in Berlin for two dates on the 21st (Kopi) and 22nd October (Cassiopeia).

Redefinition: RDF-093 ft. Klaus Layer

"Society Collapse" is Klaus Layer's fourth album since 2013. It took two years to create this instrumental concept album full of arrangements and hidden layers that will reward the listener over repeated plays. In just three years since his vinyl debut, Klaus has earned himself a reputation as Germany's most prolific and unique hip-hop conductor yet and this record will only further solidify that.

"In a society where unsettling truths about responsibility are given little thought, and short-sighted impulses have become commonplace, it’s easy to become disillusioned, but it gets a little harder when what we’re looking at are the bricks with which to build the future. There is never a time without consequence; history provides a resource of successes, failures and reflection. Eras of change ebb and flow and ours is once again uniquely positioned to cultivate an understanding of this interaction between the past and present to act upon what comes next." [Klaus Layer]

The album is available with bonus 45rpm on black or coloured vinyl (black & mint, with orange & yellow splatter). Limited to 21 copies Redef offered Lathe picture discs bundle with a 5" ft. Esoteric and 7" with Sleepy Hollow People b/w Supermarket.

A2: Witch Dance
A3: Supermarket
