This being my first post on the Eh! Team blog, i just want to say what an honor it is to be a part of the team! I look forward to the adventures ahead! For my first entry, I wanted to put up my new mix (The Frenzy 2: Rave Edition) but, i've decided to wait until everything is finished (cover art etc...). So, considering there's already a link to The Frenzy 1 up here, i figured i'd post an old mix. When zshare crashed a few years back, i lost the link to this mix and was constantly being asked to re post it, so here it is back from the grave! I'll have The Frenzy 2 up here in the next week or two! Stayed tuned and enjoy!

Q&A with Kembrew McLeod, the film's executive producer, writer and music consultant. Stay for remix music, video and drinks.
Copyright Criminals examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law, and (of course) money.
This documentary traces the rise of hip-hop from the urban streets of New York to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry. For more than thirty years, innovative hip-hop performers and producers have been re-using portions of previously recorded music in new, otherwise original compositions.
When lawyers and record companies got involved, what was once referred to as a “borrowed melody” became a “copyright infringement.” The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground—while also featuring emerging hip-hop artists from record labels Definitive Jux, Rhymesayers, Ninja Tune, and more.
It also provides an in-depth look at artists who have been sampled, such as Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown’s drummer and the world’s most sampled musician), as well as commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk legend George Clinton.
As artists find ever more inventive ways to insert old influences into new material, this documentary asks a critical question, on behalf of an entire creative community: Can you own a sound?
Copyright Criminals features:

Mix Master Mike
Pam the Funkstress

Here's a live mix of myself and Pump on 4 decks @ Happy Ending Fridays @ Fortune Sound Club. It's a one hour mix served up tapas style - small portions of multiple genres of music (Funk/Disco/80s/Rap/Electronic Stuff / Fun shit) for everyone to share, except if you were to eat it - it would probably taste like dirty mexican cowboys sprinkled with a bit of cheese, hot sauce, gravy and some soul.....and you'd probably get the runs equivalent to a chili dispenser at a gas station.
