ASM Tour Blog Part 1

Yes Yes YES!!!! back and in full effect would be the main theme of the following presentation, sportsfriends.

Glad to see that the tape king is still with us on our cyber voyage.. much Love for that first of all.

The unofficial ‘retox tour’ has begun, and it feels good to be in that state of mind again… ASM cru for life!! It all started when Green and I cruised down to Zurich to pick up the Fadester at the airport on thursday to head to our first date @ Krempel in Buchs, Switzerland. Unfortunately the horns couldnt join us for this one yet, but dont doubt that we didnt bring the heat in the form of a wave for several hours, including murderous temperatures pon di decks from my boy Fade and an unexpected appearance of the villain in the form of a Green Accordion!! Say Clack, Clack!!! Also, infinite love has to go out to Mischa aka Itchy who not only dropped heavy tunes in between various ASM sounds but also kept shit Buckshakalang!!! We passed out eventually in our beloved wooden mansion, which luckily had a ’emergency-kit’ hanging in the kitchen:

Friday started off fairly mellow, but became gradually more exciting as we not only picked up the freshest horn section this side of the mississip, but also ventured up the mountain to Laax to play a show after we knocked back a couple of brews over a pan of rösti á la Flims… needless to say, the crew was amped beyond distortion!!!!!

The show was Buck!! Freshly introduced loop-pedals for the 2toys, a slightly elevated stage for fades production table, and a sound boy that cant spell mofuckin sound boy! We killed it nevertheless, and knowing we had to get up early to have a 10hour drive to Paris the next day, kept the party going til the sun came up… well, at least most of us. Some might say it was unwise to stay up this late, but wait til u check the new introduction clips for follow-up ‘cooking with Green – der hip hop koch’ shows:

UND JETZT GEHTS LOS!! the drive was just as it sounded… loooooooooong! topped by a major disoriented attempt at finding the club in paris, we had a nerve-racking day, but generally kept it together in a big way… props to green and fade for getting us there safe from sunup til sundown!!! We were definitely pumped to see the entire Fantastic Planet crew again though and powered through… some might say ‘over-powered through’. Held it down with the man Molecular Mattic, who brought serious heat on the mic, complimented by a backline of ill producers (Chomsk’, Blanka, Oogo), an incredibly gifted vocalizah (Fantastrid), and a sound man that would make that previous sound guy i mentioned look like Bullschlachen!!!!! (Giboooooo) Check this clip from the FANTASTIC PLANET release party (sorry it’s not nicely embedded and just a link, but thank facebook):

I highly recommend they’re album to anyone and everyone… seriously some of the illest shit i’ve EVER heard!!!! That’s why we had to use our post-show day to hit up Gib’s brand new studio, appropriately named “1, 2, Pass it!” The first ever track in his studio was ‘Dedicated’ produced by Fade n lyrically destroyed by ur boys Green n F. Also got on sum Fantastic Planet beats of course. Momentus and historical event, sportsfriends. We’ll upload that and any other collaborative ventures we jump on while on tour as soon as they’re mixed. Meanwhile the toys tried to go to Disneyland, but got denied and were forced to write angry raps over waitresses’ booties…. Classic Mac-Hi and Pow-Lo! Here they are at what they do best, for all who havent met them:

We returned to Green’s place last night after an epic first weekend on tour and started today off by running the administrative ASM tings in a huge way… i’m talking ‘to-do’ lists, task distribution, and affirmative task execution, with occasional curveballs and sound boy murderins!!! One of us platipi will hit u soon with the update after the next show…. stay tuned and dig the brand new album trailer again:

THE AGE OF THE PLATYPUS IS NIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To make my contribution to the Renaissance that Green has started, here is a new mix I have been working on in late ’09 and January 2010:

Since the last Odyssey has gone astray from the path direct and never made it past its second mix, the Tapeking decided not to burden others with his musical experiments again and to do the next journey alone. With what he returned three months later is an one hour instrumental mix to which his sorrowful heart, the end of the good days in Speyer, a loss of  prospects for the nearer future and a trip to Hamburg contributed their parts.

It has been split up in seven loosely thematic chapters which follow the basic idea of the Mixtape Odyssey in that they are separate pieces but together form the whole mix. Here is the tracklist:

And here is the DOWNLOAD LINK. Uploaded it on rapidshare, so let me know if it does not work. And feel free to drop some feedback, appreciate it ..

What it do!!

Its been a minute people, and the Blog has been teetering on the brink of irrivertible damage… this is the official re-emergence. Withered and scarred by alcohol abuse and deep depression, the Blog is back up in the place… the reason for this is, basically, that shit is poppin off hard.

2010 is the one.. that would be the main theme of this presentation. Were suiting the fuck up, and our album Platypus Funk is finally seeing the light of day thanks to the undisputed dons that are Lab’oratoire, First Word Records, and the Third Culture Family. The promo copies are out there, and look like this…

In support of our infant Platypus child, were hitting the road.. hard. New live show madness has been being crafted over the past few weeks.. our beast of a horn section Mack-Hi and Pow-Lo (6ix Toys) are locked and loaded for serious heat-bringage, the funk is definitely in the place, and we may well be rocking naked from the waist down at the following theatres near you:
