lf-instore_print-lrLORD FINESSE…..hip hop royalty…..head of the DITC crew… will be at Northside Records Friday 23rd, 5.30pm for a instore signing. Sure he’ll have a dig as well, as you know he is one of the heaviest diggers around. His production always pays homage to super fine funk and soul riffs so he’ll be right at home at Northside!

Lord Finesse should need no introduction to any hip hop head — his crew D.I.T.C — that’s Diggin’ In The Crates, is made up of the creme of New York’s finest: Big L, Diamond D, Showbiz & AG, OC, Fat Joe & Buckwild, and the extended fam includes cats like Dj Premier, Big Pun, Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles, Cuban Link, Party Arty and Bless of Wild Life crew just to name drop a few.

Known for his laid back rhyming style and smooth flows, Finesse has recorded three albums with D.I.T.C: D.I.T.CAll Love and a live album recorded in memory of Big L, as well as several solo albums: The Funky Technician, Return Of The Funky Man, The Awakening plus 2 ‘rare and unreleased’ compilation albums. Fin has also produced beats for some real hip hop heavyweights, including Notorious B.I.G and Dr. Dre amongst others, and is well known for holding it down as a DJ too. There are not many cats in the game who can MC, produce and DJ and even less who would come close to touching Lord Finesse in any of these skills let alone all three. Respect!

Party starts at 5.30pm on Friday. Bring your Finesse Productions, LPs and girlfriends down and have them autographed by The Funky Technician, say hi and get the lowdown from the man himself. Better get in early – diggers in the house…

Word up: After the signing shit gets crazy at the Laundry. Get Up presents: Lord Finesse, Sheep, Manchild, Mu-Gen, Arks, Class A & Lotus. Don’t sleep.

DJ ROB SWIFT: Live! The Documented Movement Screening

DJ ROB SWIFT: Live! The Documented Movement is a film that celebrates the release of The Architect, Rob’s 4th studio album, in an intimate club in Brooklyn. The film tracks the development of Rob’s beginnings as a member of the now legendary X-men, through to his development as a turntablist-composer at the top of his game.robswift_quarter_block2

Rob’s work in the groundbreaking turntablist crew the X-ecutioners (Roc Raida, Total Eclipse, and Mista Sinista) lead him to collaborate with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Linkin Park, Dan The Automator, Fat Joe, Cypress Hill and appeared on Mike Patton’s Peeping Tom, with his album The Architect released on Patton’s Ipecac label.

Mother Hubbard is proud to present the only Australian screening of The Documented Movement followed by an exclusive Q + A with DJ Rob Swift at Cinema Nova, Saturday 17th September from 4pm.
Tickets ONLY available at:​TZU

With his dad being a salsa DJ, to me, Rob always dope a dope flavour to Hip Hop. He could hear the jazz in the funk that helped to make up hip hop. This movie will help spread the word about a great musical talent. He’s the man who put DOPE ON PLASTIC!
