We catch up with them to find out more!
Tell us a bit about both of your journeys in music?
- 210 — Well, that’s a good question… and I have no idea where or how to start, Originally I grew up in a small town in the East Side of Hungary (Debrecen), but it has a huge history and I think my first “serious” connection with music started around 92–93 when I went to visit the primary school radio studio with my class (back then)… Hahaha.. We had a general induction tour around the building and that spot was one of them. There was a tall guy who had massive headphones on his head and told our class how he operates “our” school radio every day. I remember that moment clearly because he dropped “Marky Mark Is Here” of the Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch album and because the tempo, the sound, the beat and the bass kicked my chest, that same day I literally started hunting that dude and before my school day ended finally, I met him again and asked him to give me that music… He said, straight away NO way young boy !!! but he offered me a “deal” he said, if I bring a cassette into school tomorrow and give it to him, he will record that tune for me and I can have it… I was like, YES!! Of course I WILL!!!
I stole one of my dads TDK tapes and I gave it to him next day, I think that‘s how my journey started… (He was cool because he recorded the full album on that, cassette not just that single track!!) by the way i have two copies of the record now and the rest is history.…
- pHiLLy - So my story starts when I was inside my mums belly when she was pregnant, they took me to a Frank Zappa concert, and told me that since that day in the field I will always feel the bass. My dad is Irish / Canadian and came back to the UK when young and my mum is originally from the Philippines.
Born in London, lived in Tooting my household raised me on loads of dusty hippy records, prog / psychedelic rock, and blues music, my folks told me stories of them going to see Black Sabbath in a pub in Lewisham or Pink Floyd in Luton in the green area on the ground where the airport is now. My mum rocked disco records and went out raving in London with her crews and she had a diverse set of friends so as a kid going many different households, exposed to all cultures, allowed so me and the kids, we looked like the united colours of Benetton, would hear all types of music and records playing at the parties. I was literally raised in the crates, the crackle of the old vinyl, the smell and the dust has stuck with me ever since.
Tell us a bit about Trackside Burners. When and how did the two of you met and start working together.
pHilly - Trackside Burners represents the soundtrack for your eardrums as you look around, left and right, headphones on feeling the beats, when you see some graffiti fly by you when you are out riding the train, you smell the fumes of the spray can, you see the reach on the top of a rooftop or see the ink dripping on the concrete, the music we give you, that is us, feeling it in our bloodlines, we are tagging your airwaves dropping that boom bap graffiti rap. Started officially in 2010 but goes back to 1997, basically around all the graffiti friends, crews from around the world that crashed on the floor of my flats, or the rugged freestyle sets with mics getting thrown to real writers spitting raw lyrics the sounds always provided with the music representing the elements side by side beside the paint ink! DJing on a couple of radio stations before finding a home, being picked for ITCH FM and never turning back and proud to be with the most legendary hip hop outfit moving forward from the pirate radio days which we all tuned into! Respect to the Management for choosing Trackside Burners to represent!
- 210 — I moved to the UK at the end of 2005 and I slowly started working with some UK artists and promoters. I used to work with Ivan6 & Luke on the Holdin‘ Court events (Large up to Ivan6 & Luke as always) and I think at the end of 2013 Philly and I met at one of the Holdin‘ Court gigs in Dalston, I think it was a (BBP) — Boom Bap Professionals showcase event. I did a set before or after the label showcase.… and at the end of the night, Philly was waiting for me outside the venue and said, Hey YOU! What‘s up?!… Then we had a chat outside and in the end we exchanged phone numbers… Then in early 2014 I organised an event in Finsbury Park with Cappo, Iron Bradyz formerly known as Da Flyy Hooligan, Micall Parknsun and I asked Philly to come and do the turntable business..
pHiLLy — Wait wait hold up…Bigup to 210 for bringing me in for real, but my man was working hard and he had a tough event with some class acts, I am very real and straight up about the hip hop game so dealing with him, his approach, his love of the culture, his honesty I was like no there is something here that is hip hop code. I had to step back to him and speak more….
-210 — On that same night he asked me to come on the Trackside Burners radio show for an interview and few weeks later I was at the ITCH FM Studio. I remember the radio show ended at 10pm but we were still chatting outside the Itch FM building ‘till midnight (or longer) and now, I am still there having done over 300 shows with that bad boy! We can say after many years we are partners in crime, Audio damage, that’s what we do.….… Rugged ish …
You have both opened from some incredible artists in the past. Who have been your favourite?
- 210 - Sooo many hahaaaa.…. every show is about having fun and respecting others, but I feel quite lucky because I have so many great memories.… Such a legends like Pete Rock, Raekwon, B‑Real, Ruste Juxx, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Craig G, Masta Ace and the whole EMC Crew.… but,
One of my all time greatest shows was back in 2012 when I was part of The Artifacts Re-Union European Tour and finally met El Da Sensei, Tame One and Dj Kaos (R.I.P.) face to face. We had a show in Hungary booked and it was an absolute pleasure to be spinning before they rocked the stage and it was crazy to see and hear the C‘moon with Da C‘moon or The Wrong Side Of The Track joints in live, but we had a day off before the show and we had such a great time in my hometown.. but, I will never ever forget the night when.. back in 2010 (oh my days!! 10 years ago…) Jehst, Micall Parknsun and Jazz T came to Hungary and smashed the stage down at the RH Party, Debrecen. I flew to Hungary a day before the show, I went to see my Homeboys to check how things were going but sadly the Tickets in advance did not go well, We were like, “Let‘s see tomorrow” (24 Hours before the show).… and than guess what ?? The night was completely SOLD OUT (proper!) and there were 700 people inside the venue and the queue was endless from the main door even the venue was fully packed!.. The show was absolutely crazy and I remember I was on the balcony when Jehst came on with the his classic joint “Run Hard” as an opening track. I still don‘t how or where it came from, but somehow a white bra flew over the stage and few pints were followed!! People went NUTS Big time! I get goosebumps just when I even talking about it (or typing about it) the shows had officially started! Big up to P, Jazz and Jehst! And of course to all my homies out there.
I had a really good time with Da Chef Raekwon few years back when we went to Hungary for a Festival and unfortunately such an iconic artist like Rae couldn’t perform because of the weather condition on that night, however hang in out with him and talking sense was inspiring … but, I remember when Public Enemy, B‑Real, Craig G and many others were down at cHip sHop a few years back (Big shout out to Mike and Cid as always) and I was warming up the decks with some classic Hip Hop set and in the end we all were hanging around with a bunch of legends… I remember when i did the first even London show with The Doppelgangaz crew in Brixton at Plan B in 2013, that was one of my most unforgettable nights too, but seriously I have so many so I think i‘ve to step on the next question, otherwise i could typing all day long.
-pHiLLy - uh oh, that is too hard. All have different stories and feelings which I could go on with you. Let me do some one liners and see what you think. The High & the Mighty (Eastern Conference Records) … smoke in the air, raw sound around 2004 I think, feeling was hype after dropping the set and standing back to watch them tear down the crowd, then after going next door with DJ mighty Mi to then look at the DJ booth, see him look at me and say watch this he then told the other DJ playing to step and he dropped records and made the crowd go wild! Lord Finesse — 10 minute chat about the set, 2 minute sound check, told that you gotta be on point and drop that, being the DJ for DITC legend was a honour so focus and on point, worked out right and got the nod from the underboss after. DJ Tha 4orce did the set before him, chilled with him before he went on had a ‘chat’ and then had some a question for me, now back then he was on BBE and on TV etc, we heard a beat we nodding some dropped he said what is that break? Hmm test..I was like Dixie chicken — he looked at me cold and said only person that said that to me that quick was Pete Rock. Boom Bap festival, salute to the crew, so RA the Rugged Man & A‑F-R‑O needed a Dj to do their set, they called on me I met him and talked, tough character so full focus needed and lots of peeps said he was hardcore so no mess-ups allowed. ANyway the set went down clean and focused, he even had the sound cut off and the stage collapsed when he got the front row on it, crazy ish, anyway we chilled for 5 mins after and he gave big ups and was straight up with the props, salute to hip hop underground.
Like 210 said we could go on but when you meet us and we all talk we have some stories to share….on the flip I mean did not DJ at the show but been to a Marc Ecko party with Talib being the main act rocking the crowd, met Marc Ecko, talked about everything with him and the industry, true inspirations that will never leave me to this day and makes you fight harder to keep this independent self-taught way alive…never give up mentality the time will come when the time is right…
How did Hip-Hop change your life? Was there a specific track or artist?
- 210 — How? It‘s simple.. Hip Hop is my life! I wouldn’t be here today without the true Hip Hop Culture. I moved to the UK in 2005 and I didn’t speak English — (back then), I remember listened to ITCH FM Radio on FM in my single room on a small stereo.. The music showed me to the way because I don‘t think anyone is able to describe what they feel when goosebumps come all over they‘re body of during certain tracks of motivational lyricism. Secondly, graffiti helped me to realise who am i and opened another platform in my life since the late 90‘s. Of course I do have specific Track, Tracks artist, artists (everybody have at least one.) I would say, when I saw the Style Wars movie in the mid 90‘s change my vision of everything.. Musically, in the late nineties the Wrong Side of The Tracks video by The Artifacts was a serious horse kick on my chest, I remember when I recorded to VHS cassette from one of the Yo MTV Rap‘s show I played that on repeat numerous times… but the time goes and we aren‘t getting any younger I realise I am more interested about in instrumental music because it helped me to became more creative on paper and on the walls..
Around 2014 I had some really tuff period in my life and Damu the Fudgemunk “Spur Momento Trailer” (EP) was in on my headphones probaly for months and the “Meadows” track became one of my all-time favourite productions.. So Large up to Tame, El, T‑Ray, Kaos (R.I.P.) and Damu!
pHiLLy — I was PE (Public Enemy) since I was 10, I got sent home from my primary school for rocking a PE teeshirt. Welcome to the Terrordome changed my way and hip hop was the focus. I am mixed heritage and found salvation in the culture and what it represents form of expression that unites and pushes empowerment to the people to fight the system!
Tell us a bit about your art / design work?
- 210 — As I mentioned earlier, I have done Graffiti since the late 90‘s and I have so many unforgettable memories from different countries and actions, even if it was simple wall pieces or panels on some metals or quick throw-ups.. Even today I still go out and paint when I’ve some “spare” time (i know, i should do more to be honest) but unfortunately days are go too fast and some days should be 32 Hours allowing enough time to do what I really want to because 24 Hours is not enough… Around 2010 was my first experience of Adobe Photoshop and I started to learn how to deal with the layers day by day.
Since 2014 we (Philly and I) decided to create our “New Look” on the Trackside Burners radio shows and we‘ve started working our real faces what could be the best and how we really should present our shows… After so many weeks and months we have finally found our mutual vision and that‘s what you guys and all our listeners, friends and families see each and every weeks online. We have so much more I store and i can promise loads of new stuff and our merch series will be) coming out really soon..
- pHiLLy — We love the arts, we feel the expression, we have infinite ideas that keep coming out of us and we want to share them. We break it down we have brainstorming ideas all the time to inspire each other, each one teach one, we come from self-taught background and we want to do our styles clean and sharp…rugged ish! The knowledge and similar styles we have are second to none and we deliver the good for you, reach out to us anytime, we innovate never duplicate…hip hop code right?
- 210 — Yeah for sure pHiLLy! In 2016 when Dj Kaos (R.I.P.) was in London we went out digging and we had a DJ night at cHip sHop with DJ Rumz and I did a poster (that was probably my first ever poster for cHip sHop) for that night, Mike and I started working together on so much artwork and designs. I am pleased and I feel lucky enough to have a good work relationship with him because we have over 130 and something posters now.. I did so many posters and artwork for cHip Shop and I wish we could be part of it in the future too because the burgers and chicken wings are banging there so we have to keep visiting that spot more often.. Hahahaaa
What does your radio show Trackside Burners focus on? And why was it important for you to start?
- 210 — (We answered these questions separately) but, I can tell you without even asking Philly how to answer this question..
Our focus is mainly to Keep the Underground Hip Hop movement and the life of Diggin‘ alive because it is the engine of the whole Hip Hop Culture, we opened another platform for the unknown Mc‘s & producers from around the world.. We gave them an online arena to prove how great they are. They can show how they dealing with the Mic, the beats, the snares, the kicks etc.… We are dropping music from around the world and I would say that‘s our main focus, Plus we love it because we have so many exclusive joints from around the world in our tracklists.
It is really important to me, to us because we both feel the vibes, the energy of the good music and if we hear some good music, good productions and it‘s something fresh it‘s something new that‘s our pleasure from the artists. That means the Mc‘s trust us, Producers trust us and they think we deserve to have their music & productions in our collections. I would say that‘s mutual respect to both ways because, we are having some exclusive joints and we have their music so if it fits in our show rotations we will definitely play their music on our shows.… Make sense?
pHiLLy — Agree with the home 210 as we said Boom map graffiti rap tagging your airwaves enough said….rugged ish!
Was there a particular show, guest, mix that stands out for you the most?
- 210 - Well, way too many and I know there are more to come, but the most amazing show we have had is when Blabbermouf & Proppo88 were our guests once, I think we had the most “LIVE” listeners ever in our history, as far as i remember we had 16 or 18 different countries locked in live.. We had listeners from Columbia, Venezuela, Chile, The Netherlands, Hungary, Slovakia, France and many more.. (Big Up Blabb‘s & Propoo). Actually the main monitor in the studio was flashing and the countries just kept popping up i didn’t believe my own eyes.. Hahhaaaaa
Then a few years ago we had an “average” Sunday and we were getting ready for our Remix set (#TBRemix) but I received a message around midday (maybe) later, it was Dj Kaos (R.I.P.) and the message said.. “Yoo man are you having your show tonight? I would deffo want to come and join you guys..” I called Philly immediately and we both said YES! Let‘s do that but we didn’t have enough time to change our schedule so I messaged Kaos and said, “You are more than welcome, but we are only playing Remixes tonight” he replied straight away, “That‘s COOL bro”.. Then we met outside the ITCH FM studio 10 minutes before the shows should start.. Yo, i can tell you people we did a great “random interview” and he did about 20–25 minutes live set. He played so many great Remixes.. You can listen, it‘s on the official archive still and we will keep that show forever.. (What a legend! Rest well Kaos, you are here with us)..
I would say one more…really deep and really good interview we did with Chester P a few months back (his “Freestyle” was Crazy!!) it was one of my unforgettable Sunday evenings too.. but seriously we did so many funny and great interviews!
-pHiLLy - Each show is different and we always show the raw organic energy with that we want to show and have fun with this, you can take it serious but if you don’t laugh and enjoy then what is the point and un the studio we laugh so much! That is a hard question as we have way to many as 210 said earlier!
We had Marco Polo & Lord Finesse phone us live to talk to us — they choose to do that and put away 1 hour of their time to call us and talk to us and we are humbled to grace with living legends! Talking to two of the best beat makers in hip hop was something that could only make us hype and proud!
Personal friends DJ Matman and his brother DJ Daredevil joined us and had so much fun and laughter but with serious DJ skills and showcase of beats, one love to Dj Daredevil as we will always play your music forever!
Our dedication to the samples every Christmas Strictly Breaks always hits home as we need the year with a feeling of music from all genres, beautiful to hear where the music we love come from, never forget the artists!
Being deep into the culture, studying and forever learning we go into focus mode depending on what we are challenged with.
Dropping Subway Art or our Dondi tribute were next level and bringing you back to 1979-183 NYC and feeling what a real block party was is a special place to us and paying homage to the greats!
Our dedications to record labels always hits home whether it be FAT BEATS or Pay Day records or Bronx Science, note we have more in store stay tuned, we love the vinyl and we had to do this!
We did a dedication to Mark B and showed love and in return live in the studio — people reached out to us as they knew we were going to pay salute from the heart. Chester P. mutual friend of Mark B, Matty joined us and Blade called us live and sat with us for 2 hours as we had to show love and power to the legend, rest in paradise brother!
-210 — So many featured Grand Agent / Tableek during the situation Paris happening during our set, Ric Branson, Chrome and Black, Fliptrix, Phyba, Coops, Gee Bag, Ramson Badbonez, Oliver Sudden and many more in the past but to be honest every all the shows are diamonds to me because it’s still unbelievable to me to think where i am now and walking to the Itch FM studio is like my second home, our shows will be there forever and we are tagging the airwaves without even realising it.…
You do a UK Homegrown Hip Hop Special, who from the UK scene do you feel have really paved the way, or have been making a big impact ?
- 210 — To me the UK Scene is so important and became a massive milestone of my life.. I have to name the real heroes because i missed out on the First generation of the UK scene but still I would say, The Ruthless Rap Assassins, Derek B, London Posse, Demon Boyz, Son of Noise are just a few but i am sure plenty more could be mentioned of course but the place where i grew up there wasn‘t any internet in the late 90’s so only information I (or we) had was once a week at 1am on Sunday morning was Yo MTV Rap‘s (on my parents black and white TV) in our house living room.. That was my google chrome back then, Hahahaaaa..
But seriously, my ultimate UK heroes (Mc‘s) Blade, Chester P, Sundragon, Jehst, Skinnyman, Verb‑T, Klashnekoff, Numskullz and the list goes on.. Flip it to the side of producers i would say without even thinking defintely Harry Love he is my absolute favourite producer from the UK scene but people should never forget the classic Herbaliser or Vadim joints and of course Mark B (R.I.P.) productions that‘s how i feel but there is plenty of others i could name it for example Lewis Parker, Mr Brown these two have so much knowledge of music and great productions.. It sounds so unique. People must be really proud of these people because after so many years these artists are still around and delivering great productions.
- pHiLLy — First and foremost I am a fan. Listening to Gunshot, Blade, Hijack at the age of 10. This raised me with empowerment and the enjoyment of creativity. But as I grew up and the time frame of 1998–2003 flipped the scene. Actually meeting these people in real life and formed a bond, and even friendship with them, helped see things within the UK underground and showed power with respect. In all honesty that is a hard question so many circumstances at different times paved the way and made a big impact DJ Disorda nights in south East london with a small set of real heads, opened doors people like Lewis Parker (who got chucked out the venue from the bouncer) to then tell them he is on stage dropped cloud stepper bars with ice beats and made the whole crowd look at the floor. Bumping locally and chilling with DJ 279 was inspiring! Going to Kung-fu and feeling the energy from everyone Taskforce, Mystro, Harry Love and Sarah Love, the Solo One pieces rolling with loads peeps within our crew and extended family circles. The original Peoples Army in Loughborough Junction, in the warehouse and the raw energy of the true next generation in an event. I DJed a warm-up for Non Phixion and the warm-up act was Klashnekof, the stage had 30 heads and a black flag waving then Daggo Mentality dropped — stand firm stood still and absorbed a change. However a big thing was with our crew and forming an alliance with Blade and Mark B (RIP) when the Unknown came out before it dropped as the white label singles came out we were there and going everywhere together finally amounting to two memorable nights which will stand close to the heart. Firstly the night at Scala Kings Cross and the album launch party Blade and Mark where getting ready for one of the biggest nights of their journey we were there, Blade stage diving and rocking with us, the crew, in the crowd at the front ‚my homie Kn0Wn (graffiti writer) taking the mic and free-styling on the stage, it was pure chaos but raw energy and the house was going wild. With Blade after the show we were all so hype that some guy in the shadow was watching gave a big up and we were like yeah and all bounced and smashing around the venue and backstage, that guy was Rakka Irescience of Dilated Peoples. Secondly was the show at LA2 Tottenham Court ROad, Mark B and Blade, Blade’s son stage dived and Skinnyman just came out of Jail, never seen a venue go crazy as that night! I have so many other stories but those stood out for different personal reasons….
You state you are bringing back the mixtape era, what are your thoughts on the current state of Hip-Hop, and what do you hope to revive from the oldskool that you feel the scene is missing?
- 210 - “Bring Back The Mixtape Era” means like I mentioned earlier, we try to keep the engine running because the underground, independent movement will never die, even nowadays there are so many great artists swimming in this ocean, we have to dig deeper each day to deliver the Mixtape Era and of course the real Trackside Burners flava! We are playing thousands of tracks from the late nineties, from the mid 2000 that people have never heard of because these tracks are on some independent labels or never.
There isn‘t any difference to me in Current Hip Hop because so many people who grew up on the Boom Bap era back then think the game has changed. Hip Hop isn‘t same anymore etc.. I think these people became lazy (no disrespect!) and they haven‘t see the cherry on the cake because the sound of Boom Bap is still alive, the 16 bars are still 16 bars the cuts and the choruses are still the same (even sharper) and of course the time has changed but think about that Blues?? Why, because the Blues is still the Blues, Jazz is still Jazz, Funk is still Funk, Techno is still Techno, Rock & Roll is still Rock & Roll and the Punks are still around so guess what?? .…. Hip Hop is still Hip Hop that‘s nothing to do with the current statement that the mainstream media categorised as “Hip Hop”. This genre became one of the most saleable products for the younger generation because it looks cool. They have some funny slogan tagged on shirts, it makes young boys proud having a pen-box with a cool tag on to put on his desk at school, It looks cool having wallpaper in Chicken shops or restaurants with some “cool” tags on their walls.. plus because most of the teenagers are using expensive phones they don‘t really have to search for “Hip Hop” or any Genre really because the main media platforms and video channels, major labels have their sponsored adverts on all social media sites and what‘s their main agenda? Sales, Sales and more sales.. They are pushing their products and unfortunately lots of “crap” (no disrespect) products are landing on teenagers phone screens and of course they will press play on music videos because the main adverts look “cool” for them. The life that we are living nowadays is super-fast and sometimes it is out of control but It doesn‘t mean there isn‘t a real hip hop movement or the Hip Hop culture has lost the respect or is losing the originalities of the true artists.
The younger generation will realise one day some of the music that they are listening to today will not exist so long so I am sure they will grow up one day and they will go back where everything started from not particularly Hip Hop it could be any genre..
For example when I was younger and I was listened to Marky Mark and I never ever thought about I would ever listen to 7th Wonder, Gladys, James Brown, Barry White or Miles Davis but I do because times have changed and how many Hip Hop beats were sampled from these legendary artists? Way too many so… Long story short… Real Hip Hop never dies, doesn‘t matter what the mainstream media put on their lists for sale.. The sounds of Real Hip Hop will be here forever, just tune in to the Trackside Burners and listen (to) some BoomBapGraffitiRap ish it will make you think, trust me!!… And those people who moaning about “This” or “That” not good need to open their eyes and please do yourself a favour go out and do some research what you wanted to hear because it’s out there, i guarantee you!! (No disrespect) but if they don’t know, please don’t judge the whole culture or the whole movement! Simple.
pHiLLy — you hear that 210 and I are the same mindset, that is why we represent and basically the same mind state and vision! Even if he was raised where he was raised and me raised where I was raised we do and think the same way! Crazy parallel worlds but the mix tape hip hop era is with us since we started and now we rock together keeping this infinite for those that know I used to run with other graffiti writers making straight raw underground vandal mixtapes featuring hardcore crews from all over in the cypher — to have a Wu-Tang DJ Coalition mixtape for Rock the bells featured on www.wu-world.com. We got that Mix tape era with beats to make your necks snap!
During the lockdown period we have seen a lot of DJs go head to head with the verses challenges (track for track on two artists). Which artists would you put back to back?
- 210 — Ohhhh wow, That‘s a super tricky question but let me try to make a list.… I would say…
- DJ KHEOPS VS. CUT KILLER (French Hip hop battle)
- DJ STYLEWARS VS. DJ MIKRO MACHINE (German Hip hop Battle)
- DAMU THE FUDGEMUNK VS. K‑DEF (Redef Records — Beat Battle)
- ROC MARCIANO VS DARINGER (Beat Battle)
- MR BROWN VS HASHFINGER (Beat Battle)
- SPAZE WINDU VS. AK420 (Beat Battle)
- ETO PARANOIA VS. MIKE FLIPS (Beat Battle)
- HARRY LOVE VS. LEWIS PARKER
- LORD FINESSE VS. EASY MO BEE (Beat Battle)
- PF CUTTIN VS DJ EMSKEE (Sample Battle)
I Could carry on but I think it’s better if I stop here otherwise I could make an endless list and to be honest and I don‘t really want to see these people back to back because I am sure the next day I would put my turntables on eBay for sale immediately.. Hahhaaa. They are proper heavyweight DJ‘s and producers. Large up all of them for the number of years they were truly dedicated to Hip Hop and the amount of the great music and shows they have done in the past. Once this lockdown issue has ended around the world I can‘t wait to see these people in action (again!)..
- ISP crew VS. Beat Junkies (DJ Hip hop Battle)
- Large Pro VS Pete Rock (Beat Battle)
- Plus One VS Atrak (DJ Hip hop Battle)
- Marco Polo VS RJD2 (Beat Battle)
Feeling that one 210 said HARRY LOVE VS. LEWIS PARKER uhh fire!
Agree with 210, that list could be endless but the sound has to be good so you can enjoy the atmosphere hard to check if is not…good to see the legends bring audio visual damage
What have you been doing to keep actively creative during the lockdown?
- 210 — It‘s easy, Designs, Artwork, Sketching, Digging in my record collection, Spinning a bunch of old records, Eat, Sleep and REPEAT.. Ohhh and i forgot to mention a few nice cold beers (why not??) Haha
- pHiLLy — Being with Family (shout to my daughter and son & Mrs pHiLLy), Diggin in the record collection, innovation and motivation, doing artwork and video ideas, constantly thinking together to do that audio visual damage and taking it to the next level, reinvent yourself and never biting…
Tell us what you have coming out and where we can keep up to date with you?
- 210/pHiLLy — We have been working with the DEPHECT clothing brand for the last few years and we did our latest Strictly Beats special mix not so long ago. it‘s on Soundcloud and Mixcloud plus we did a Rugged, Raw mix with the BeatVandals (Russian Record Label) that will be up online in the next few days, maybe weeks.. We are both doing weekly shows as always and we keep each other strong because we are only able to do shows separately so we can‘t do our “healthy back2back challenges” as we usually do on our shows but you can catch us on ITCH FM Radio every Sunday 8–10pm and join the show. We also have lots of fresh Remixes, Indie Hip hop joints for our next shows when we are back to a normal life routine…
- 210 - Plus on the 31st of May I will play on the Trackside Burners radio show a proper Nineties special so (better tune in) and enjoy the sound of the original Boom Bap era.…also working on a proper Beat Tape with one of my good old friend and we created a formation with T.oT.o and became the Unknown Suspects in the underground world.
