For those who may have missed it from the fall of 2013, me and my guy the omnipotent DJ Format did a nice little mix / battle for Ninja Tune‘s Solid Steel Radio Show pitting some of the UK’s illest random rap selections from the late 80’s – early 90’s era against a similar collection of gems originating from good ol’ Philly PA here in the U.S. of A. With Format repping the UK and me standing up for my city of brotherly love, natch. Although it was my job to make Britain look not so Great, I gotta admit Format pulled some serious heat out of those UK Hip Hop crates. I think I repped Philly pretty nicely with the obscure facemelters, though. You be the judge, who won the battle? Either way, when good rap schitt is dropped it’s a victory all the way around, and that’s what really counts.

It’s been two years since my first record on the Nobody Buys Records label – the Phill Most Chill Fast Rap E.P.- dropped, and now I’m back at it with those Bankrupt European beatmakers again. This time it’s “The Remix E.P.” 12″ which features current day remixes of four of my late 80’s era songs (Release Yourself, Phill Most Chill On The Hype Tip, Be Intelligent and On Tempo Jack) revived and revitalized by the production team of DJ Snafu and Fraser Syme, complete with instrumentals. Fresh reworkings of classic era Hip Hop? Count me in (especially if it’s a fresh reworking of one of my own joints). Check the evidence, as in soundclips-
And after checking the evidence you can get ya self a copy or two or twenty five if you click on these particular blue words. And you can go below and gaze longingly at some pics of the vinyl courtesy of paying customers who’ve already paid for and received their wax while you wait patiently for your copies to arrive. You can’t lose with us, my g. Also, just an advance word- a new project is being worked on that’s gonna be revolutionary… wait and see, you heard it here first. I’m excited! More info in the days to come… keep checking back and thanks for checking out THAT REAL SCHITT.
For those of you who heard the incredible Rock The Discotek and Rock The Discotek Vol. 2 mixes by the incomparable Jorun Bombay (and if you didn’t you really, really need to take care of that asap before people start thinking you’re dumb), you may have heard a couple of songs with me supplying the raps (me being Phill Most Chill, random rap icon and prime minister of THAT REAL SCHITT). A number of people dug those tunes and suggested that it would be cool if they could make it to a vinyl release sometime in the near future. Ladies and gentlemen… the future is now. Available for preorders is the latest release on the AE Productions label (Mr. Fantastic‘s imprint. also the home of the Phill Most & Mr. Fanta “Superfunk” 12″) by the aforementioned duo of Jorun Bombay and Phill Most Chill, teaming as one to become Jorun-P.M.C. Titled “The Magic Disco Machine”, this nice piece of vinyl features those two songs I already spoke about, “Can’t Won’t Don’t Stop” and “The Champ”, as well as a new joint, “Magic Disco Machine”. And although we may be rockin’ a disco break or two, this record is pretty damn far from being disco. Make no mistake, this is hardcore b-boy music, the type of stuff that people just don’t make anymore. We might as well had stepped into a time machine, set it to like 1986-87, grabbed the illest Hip Hop we could find once we got there, then returned back to the present with The Magic Disco Machine E.P. As a bonus, there’s also an exclusive 7″ with alternate versions of “The Champ” available for those that cop the full bundle (and there may also be some stickers for people who frequent the DWG forums, but I’m not so sure how all that works so head straight for the DWG forums and try to get some info if you want some dope azz stickers too). Full color sleeve as well (see the second pic up top). And be prepared- if you dig this one Jorun and I are busy working on a Jorun-P.M.C. full length album for 2014, and I can pretty much guarantee that you’re gonna like that one, too. So stay tuned. If you’ve heard enough and feel compelled to cop, please feel free to make that donation and preorder the wax right here. And if you haven’t heard enough and need to hear more (like, maybe the music itself), take a listen at the snippets over here. And just so y’all know, ANOTHER Phill Most project of massive real schitt interest is coming within a few weeks, so put a couple of dollars away now… you won’t be happy if you miss any of the new stuff. BONUS: whoever can name the most records that are pictured on that Jorun-P.M.C. cover wins a free mystery prize.
New sureshot just released on the Breakin Bread label featuring my homie Chris Read rockin’ the beat and me, myself and I Phill Most Chill rockin’ the emcee rhymes. 7″ format with the original version plus a nasty remix by Chris on the B side (there’s also a very dope remix by Kid Dyno of the Daily Diggers crew that I hope will be available as well… #hottodeath). Please support and purchase one or two or thirty copies if you feel so inclined. Chris will be dropping a full length lp on Breakin Bread soon too, so put a few bucks aside for that. Meanwhile, check out the A side of Rap Tradition here and the B side remix here. While you’re at it, go ahead and order that vinyl 45 by clicking this (vinyl is pressed in limited quantities and has already sold out at some locations, so I’d advise acting fast just in case) or do that iTunes digital download style thing by tapping on this other link. I think that covers it! It’s gonna be a busy end-of-2013 when it comes to new Phill Most Chill related raps released on vinyl, so please be ready… I think you’re gonna like what’s coming. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping by.
