Shotcallers interview Diamond D

After an incredible DJ set of original 7 inch breaks and a short performance of some of his golden era classics in Brixton earlier this month, The Shotcallers were lucky enough to grab a few minutes with man himself.   Audio's not great, but check out this interview Reggie Fantastik and I did with the one and only Diamond D. (Big shouts going out to Shuks & The Kool Skool for the hook up)

As a little bonus..heres some dodgy phone footage from the same night of DD performing 'Best Kept Secret'...

RIP Fat Beats..

Internet killed the record shop..? Another one bites the dust. Closing down after nearly 20 years, the legendary Fat Beats store is no more. I was lucky enough to go and buy vinyl back in the day from the New York and Amsterdam stores so I feel blessed. To celebrate the history and contribution the NYC store made to Hip Hop culture, what I guess could be called a wake was held..check out the DJ sets from hiphop heavyweights Just Blaze, DJ Premier, A-Trak & Cypha Sounds (who made me laugh cos I brought my copy of Da Enemy from there on my first visit). RIP Fat Beats.
