Neek’s Comin’ In Piles EP is now available
JS-1 recently unveiled a project that has been in the works for nearly two years now, painstakingly collecting 3 hours worth of demo and obscure / rare tracks. Because the majority of this tape are demos, the quality isn’t as clean as a standard release mixtape. Lots of these gems were pulled off cassette tapes, overdubs and radio rips. The KRS-ONE x DJ Premier track that was left on the cutting room floor during the recording of Return of the Boom-Bap alone is worth downloading this tape. More info can be found over at JS-1′s spot.

The other night, Meka and I (and our respective ladies) headed down to the Highline Ballroom in NYC to check out our QN5 family tear the roof down. I’ve been a fan of the label for a decade now and watching experiencing the Megashow reminded me of the exact reason why… Dope. Fucking. Music.
The idea was simple: Show the fans the complete evolution of QN5 CHRONOLOGICALLY through our most requested songs. It was a brand new format and we’d need to interchange the artists and sets frequently to pull it off. The 10+ years of albums, singles, mixtapes from 6 artists, we spent quite a bit of time figuring out exactly how we’d pull it off. In the end, we came up with a 102 song setlist that would span the length of our history and the show itself. We kept the openers to a minimum with our patented “Song Cypher” format (if you ever see it again at any show. you know where they jacked it from) to keep things moving briskly and started the show far earlier than any past Megashow.
Head over to QN5 to get the full recap.
That’s right folks… the day has arrived! If you’re in NYC I strongly advise you hit the Highline Ballroom at 7pm to catch CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, PackFM, Substantial, Mr. SOS, Kokayi and DJ JS-1 rock the stage, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their independent label.

Off DJ JS-1′s super dope compilation, Ground Original 3: No One Cares, dropping June 21st!
JS-1 is planning a new project, No One Cares, which will be released June 21st on Fat Beats Records. In his words, this cut came to fruition because it’s “sad watching New York artists trying desperately to make ‘down-south’ music, using corny beats and biting slang.” Ouch.
