INSTORE ANNOUNCEMENT

SATURDAY 7 TH OCTOBER

Northside will welcome

SAATSUMA

To celebrate the release of Overflow on vinyl, SAATSUMA have just announced a live in-store full-band performance at local wax institution Northside Records in Fitzroy on October 7th at 3pm. For this performance SAATSUMA will bring together the five-piece live band for the special performance.

Captivating Melbourne two-piece SAATSUMA share debut album, Overflow, which sees the duo emerge with a cultivated sound well beyond their years. Written and produced by Memphis LK and Cesar Rodrigues, Overflow is a continuity of a motif that runs throughout their body of work. Memphis LK says the album “continues the recurring theme of water, following on from our debut singles Storm and Floating. Water has always been present… it’s an element I am constantly drawn back to… Our connection to and interaction with the natural environment. The fragility and fluctuation of relationships.” It’s a nine track float on an imaginary SAATSUMA stream; from the comedown of ‘Feel It All’; drifting to a rejection of ignorance, ‘Isolate’; floating towards a notion of wanting what you can’t have, ‘Stay’ and the pull of the moon, ‘Crescent’.

Overflow 12” Vinyl LP is available for purchase at Northside Records, as well as available to stream/buy at saatsuma.com.

BRIGGS and TRIALS INSTORE this FRIDAY

BRIGGS1

That’s right! Get on the good foot!

BRIGGS & TRIALS

Friday 9th October 5pm

FRIDAY we have the honour to host BRIGGS and TRIALS

Having just won Album of the Year at the National Indigenous Music Awards for his 2014 LP Sheplife and best video for Bad Apples, Victorian rapper Briggs is one of Australia’s finest and fiercest MCs. This became clear as early as 2009, when he self-released his debut EP, Homemade Bombs. Since then Briggs has released two albums on Golden Era – Sheplife and 2010’s The Blacklist – toured with the likes of Hilltop Hoods, Ice Cube, Yelawolf and Ghostface Killah, received several Deadly nominations and become a voice for indigenous rights

At The Workers Club he’ll be headlining with a typically incendiary solo set, as well as teaming up with Funkoars’ MC Trials for their A.B. Original project. (Trials will also be performing a DJ set). Support on the night will be up-and-coming rappers Philly, Birdz and Nooky who will be releasing music on Briggs’s new imprint Bad Apples Music.

Starting at 5PM come down to meet BRIGGS and TRIALS and dig on Trials DJ’ing then too.

LORD FINESSE INSTORE: Friday 23rd Sept.

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.
