PUBLIC ENEMY: ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back/ Fear Of a Black Planet’ multi-disc deluxe editions (2014)

Multi disc 30th anniversary Def Jam Public EnemyDespite the release (by Def Jam‘s parent company Universal) of the complete collection of Public Enemy albums as a deluxe vinyl boxed set last March to celebrate 25 years of PE, Def Jam are shortly to release deluxe editions of two of those very albums as part of their year-long 30th anniversary celebrations. That’ll be It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and Fear Of A

PUBLIC ENEMY: Bring The Noise (PHIBES remix)(2014)

Bring The Noise PE PhibesBass! How low can you go? Well, if your handle is Phibes, then you aim to get lower than the Bomb Squad. Which is rather a prolonged tramp downwards. Talking of tramps – a certain well-famous Mohawks sample gets another outing here although the familiarity of that hammond riff is leavened by the process of inserting lengthy ghetto funk wobble-bass interpolations. It’s all part

DJ MONEYSHOT: Solid Steel And The Hour Of Chaos (Public Enemy/ ‘Nation Of Millions’ tribute mix) (2013) – Free download

Something of a sequel to the Paul’s Boutique Beasties tribute LP that DJ Moneyshot was involved in (along with Cheeba and DJ Food), this Solid Steel And The Hour Of Chaos tribute mix was put together to celebrate twenty five years since Public Enemy’s Bomb Squad-produced classic It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and simultaneously mark a quarter century of Solid

PUBLIC ENEMY: 25th Anniversary Vinyl Collection (2013) + video

It’s been a quarter of a century since Chuck D, Flavour Flav, Terminator X and Professor Griff first bum-rushed the show as Public Enemy – though the story began even earlier than that with D and Flav’s Spectrum City project. Then they spent the best part of a decade until the mid nineties, famous (thanks to incendiary lyrics and the Bomb Squad’s

FEATURECAST featuring FARINA MISS: Ego Tripping + Public Enemy ‘Harder Than You Think’ free download (2012)

Rating: ★★★★★
The latest from one of ghetto funk’s greatest, Featurecast (in the run-up to the drop of his forthcoming LP Run For Cover) is the sultry Ego Tripping featuring Farina Miss. Apparently, Mr Cast doesn’t just do club bangers but is somewhat more than a fair hand at producing fuck-music too – who knew? If it’s club bangers you want though you’ll

EWAN HOOZAMI: Free mashup madness! – Greg Nice vs. Bob Marley/ Nick Fonkyson vs. Alice Russell/ Parov Stelar vs. Cee Lo Green/ Grinny Grandad vs. A Skillz vs. Public Enemy

Bristol beatmonger Hoozami, gets in on the end of year/ start of new year free download craziness with some of his own. That’s right – not ‘one’ – ‘some.’ Clearly not a man to be outdone, the rising producer (whose debut breaks and beat-fest LP Wildebeats recently dropped on Pig Balls Records`) here conjures up no less than four mashups as he fiendishly engages in splicing experiments with the efforts of the good and the great

MAKO & THE HAWK: Shut Up And Give It Up – Free download

(PRESS RELEASE) The second mash-up from these two, this is a project from which Mako has tried to distance himself, claiming that with Shut Up And Give It Up the Hawk was trying to ‘house’ him and that it sounds nothing like the “create something a bit like Rapper’s Delight” idea they had originally mooted. Despite this, the Hawk persists with the flimsy argument that Mako’s suggestion to, ‘put in some extra kick drums’ constitutes a significant contribution to the production process. Whatever the truth, this unholy marriage of Public Enemy and The Ting Tings will have so many hands in the air in the coming months that it should boost deodorant sales exponentially, with knock-on economic effects that might ultimately lift the UK from the current recession. Hurrah!
