OMG So dope to see DA SMART WRECKIN!

Dude, seriously.

People know I ride for the south, and I do, but honestly I think some of the best rap music ever made was made in Chicago (and Gay, IN) between the mid-90s and mid-2000s.

And there's still dope shit coming from that area. Midwest Mobstaz indeed.

Peep this shit out. My brother DaWreck introduces DA Smart and brings him to the stage in what appears to be a surprise performance. He does a new song and then rips through the classic "Walk With Me," and more...

I miss that place man.....

Shout out Newsense, I see you in the front row. And loud shout out to MIDWEST MUSIC MACHINE for keeping me up on all this shit man.

Pre-Pachanga Party!
Nortec Collective & Bomba Estereo in Austin THURSDAY!

THIS THURSDAY AT CLUB DEVILLE! That means you can see this, and go back and forth between DeVille and Mohawk for Yelawolf. This that Austin way of life yo.

I still remember the day I got one of Nortec's early releases from Kim Buie. They floored me like 15 some years ago or some shit, and man they have come so far. Incredible live show. Do not miss this.

New track from Austin's KYDD

The boy makes beats too.

Check Tje Austin out on his website and follow @tjeaustinmusic for all the updates...


The Echocentrics! CD Out today on Ubiquity Records!

If you listen to my radio show, you know that I have been playing the hell out of this album for the past month or so. Its amazing. GO out and get yourself a copy today, or tomorrow at the latest.

(Someone) described the Echocentrics sound as psychedelic, cinematic and dusty soul produced by Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout!). It's one of the most beautiful records I have heard in a long ass time. YOu can go get the record today all over the place and then you can see them in San Antonio on May 20, Austin at Pachanga Fest on May 21, Houston at the Flat on May 23 and.... hopefully Marfa on May 25th. My first foray into doing shows out there. We shall see how it works out!

For now, get the record...

Record Store Day is Tomorrow!

Record Store Day is Saturday! Who wants to kick it? I can only go first half of the day but plan to cover some ground and drag my kids along with me. Lets KICK IT.

I know people who don't like Record Store Day and feel it is a sham. I personally disagree cuz everytime I roll out for Record Store Day, I feel like I am celebrating Record Stores as opposed to feeling like I am spending myself into the ground, as I generally do when I go into record stores.

Anyway, lets get hype. Bring the kids. Lets go look at and buy some records. Beginning at Encore Records like 11am or so, and then I can only kick it till like 2 p.m. So yeah, LEZ DO DIS! Holler at me bout this @Pushermania

Buy this vinyl on Record Store Day
A new one from (IN)Sect Records

Cuz it jams, cuz it's a real record, and its on the thowededest label in Austin, (IN)Sect Records.

Starship 27 Vol. 2: 'TAKE OFF' 2X12" (Blue Vinyl, ltd. 1,000)
Starship 27 Vol. 2 Bonus 45 (Green Vinyl, ltd. 300)

In 2009, an album emerged out of nowhere like a UFO sighting called Starship 27. The album, curated by DJ, drummer and producer, J-1 a.k.a. The Deer,

featured an assortment of West Coast beat producers including Dam Funk, DIBIA$E, P.U.D.G.E., Ras G, Devonwho, and House Shoes.

If this is your first time hearing about the Starship 27 phenomenon or you just haven't been able to find it, we've re-upped the original record and

it's available for free download HERE! This time around on Vol. 2, we see the same cast coming back as well as the list of tracks and producers expand to include

music by Flame Brown (Bling 47), Eric Lau, I-Ced, Coultrain, B. Bravo, The Kone and Teeko comes back with his amazing group F.A.M.E.

As well as also releasing a bonus 45 with unreleased FONK from Georgia Anne Muldrow and 'low budget kingpin', Kev Brown on the flip side.

With Starship 27 vol. 2, J1 becomes the curatorial captain guiding the spacecraft on its voyage.

For tracklist and a list of stores that have it, go to:
Also, You can download a couple tracks from the record for free here:

P.U.D.G.E. - "Didn't Wanna DJ"

Guest Blogger: Alie Jackson

So glad I was able to bring the ladies from along on the Mini Cooper Wanderlust trip out to Marfa, Texas we done just took. My photos are in the post below, and a cool selection of Alie Jackson's are here. Alie is 1/2 of AustinKnightVintage, but her photography site is There's some DOPE photos of the whole trip here. Things I didn't even see! She kilt it.

Peep these out and know it's just a beginning.

See all the official coverage of the trip right thurr!

Magda Sayeg is EVERYWHERE

A German car in a good ol' German American town, Fredericksburg

Where me and Kydd were posted up, for a minute

And the rest of us.

Quick stop in Sonora for a BITE

Also gas

I was driving so I didn't get to get any photos of the wild fires we passed, but Alie did. It was no joke. Over 100,000 acres and then some, burned. Seeing the charred earth on the way out was a serious bummer. People lost homes, just insane.

Cannot believe I saw all this with my own eyes.

Jumbo in a Mini


El Cosmico is THAT spot

Mo' Magda, Knitta Please!

Now THIS is a tent


She really done did that in Shafter, TX

La Migre, 60 miles north of the border, just south of El Cosmico

Padres Patio is MY SPOT! Get ready for a fun summer in Marfa. Can't wait to come back.

Any way it really went down and I am really thankful for the pic's Alie. Stay tuned for some from Brad Bunyea.
