Sorry but MF Doom and Biggie are on other sides of the planet for me. If I goto an underground hiphop show I expect to here something similar. One more chance was a commercial hit and although I love Biggie, it isnt what I would expect. Maybe if he had have played Unbelievable I would have been less forgiving :-). I think one more chance was about the only hiphop  track he played, you have a good memeory to remember that! Things done changed...turn your pages to 2011! :-)

Still no news on support then? I doubt there are many hiphop DJ's left who play out in Bristol! I still know a few who are great dj's! Its no surpise as the championships arent as popular as they used to be. It will all be digital soon, maybe we could have some digital instrument battle nights :-)

Let hope the support is better than the last time. I cant help it if I'm on my own with my opinions, but I cant remember the last night I went to where I heard a decent hiphop DJ. If there is such a night someone please tell me!

As for the hard work that's gone into the festival, thatís the music industry making people work because they are passionate about it. They just arenít the people getting the money. I work hard in my job everyday and I get nothing but my pay in return, thatís how it is. If you get paid for working in the music industry, be thankful for your job.

Thats such a retarded statement!

Why should you be thankful for your job just because its deemed 'interesting'??  Working your ass off for months on a project only to not be able to pay your rent at the end of the month sucks! So what if your job is in the entertainment sector?! Life costs money, working in the music industry or not!

If you read that back, you'll see that I said "if you get paid for working in the music industry" . Dont bite so hard, its nothing personal. I used to be in the game myself many years ago. I had to give it up because i couldnt live off it. There will always be someone willing to take your place and your forgotten very quickly.

Wonít be great for me. I'll be stood outside trying to sell my ticket. None of the people I know bought a ticket because Ultra pulled out.  Itís funny as they did the 'Early bird tickets' which I bought at £44. They were supposed to be cheaper. Little was I to know that they would then do a groupon deal at less than half price. Makes me wonder how much they would have coined in if it had been a sell-out.

Respect to the guy who spoke up about the stages. You should always listen to the whistleblowers, at least they have the balls to say something. With the current economy the way it is, these are the people taking the biggest risks.

I doubt anyone at the top will make allot from this, so I have doubts if it will be back. It will be a shame if there is no follow up festival next year.

A : Yes I am wound up .I guess you wouldnít be, or donít you ever make mistakes?  I've got a ticket for £40 that I don't want and I don't get to see Ultra :-) .
B: I've posted it twice (is that all over the site? - Damn your all over my shit like it was on a blanket). Once in a separate thread and as a reply in the thread about the festival. People actually wanted an official reply about Ultra in that thread.
C: I didnít know it was seen as acceptable to advertise things and sell them on the basis that they might be true. Sorry what an idiot I am!
D: Not being able to refund your tickets doesnít help with the ticket tout and other non-reputable sources...
E: T&C's are all good, excpet when they do not favour towards basic consumer rights.  

All Iím trying to do is help people by stopping them from making the same mistake I did. It would be nice to know that someone may have benefitted, but everyone round here is looking for someone to hang. Iím sorry I bothered. I apologies for any upset caused.

Iím sure Saturday will be great for those who want to go (Like I said theres a spare ticket going right here, just pm and make me offer Smiley

Iím going back to lurking in the shadows.

Let say you bought a TV because it said it did 1080p in the store and on the box. You then got it home and it didnít support 1080p. Due to the fact that itís advertised with 1080p you have a right to be able to return it for a full refund. I canít see why it would be so difficult for them to refund me my money if I returned the ticket....thatís just basic consumer rights imo. Iím not complaining that they canít make it, thatís understandable. Why they canít give me a refund and rammed it down my throat isnít.

Just thought I'd let anyone like me who bought their ticket for Ultra have just lost their money. I've had it confirmed from the organisers that they wont be there and that I cant get a refund. They werent very nice about it either....

ĎIt is with regret we have to announce with that the Ultramagnetic MCs wonít be appearing at WTP. Through no fault of their own their European tour was cancelled and although we worked hard with their management to try and salvage our date it just wasnít possible and no fault of the bands.í

If anyone knows someone who wants to buy a ticket for Saturday let me know.

Aslong as he play some of his old classic tracks and they have a decent system at the club. It was a joke when he played at the club round the corner from Blue moutain - cant remember the name of it now!
15  General / The Forum / Re: Promoters and their mates!!!! on: June 29, 2010, 15:31:31
Just thought I'd add some words of experience. I've been out of the scene for a few years, but I learnt allot during that time. The first things is there inst much money in the hip-hop scene and you got to have fun while doing it. Thatís why people tend to end up with people they get on with. An MC is one of the hardest roles to get off the ground with. In the old days (not sure what itís like now) the DJ had to bring turntables and sometimes a PA. This meant that the promoter would pick you as you would be helping to get the thing off the ground, the MC would get in for free and some drinks.
The promoter is only going to pick you if they have heard of you or your friends with them. Like a few people have said itís not their job to go looking, but they should be well informed. There always someone ready to take your spot for less money or for free.
I did everything you can think of to get known as a hip-hop DJ (apart from the DMC's - I had friends doing that). I did pirates for 5 years and supported top US hip-hop artists and enjoyed it. I was lucky but I put in the work and tried to get to know the 'system'.
 K.Ners, you seem to have worked a way for yourself and all you can do is tell people what you did. Everyone is different and needs to take their own path. Lots of people have made it in collectives... 3PM, Aspects. Wild Bunch. Most groups will end up falling out at some point, because its hard work even when your friends.
 Hip-hop seems to be in an unknown state in that it has lost some of its underground status due to some commercial ventures from  artists. Everyone who looks at the web will know there are probably atleast 10-20 new albums from do-it yourself MP3 labels. Nobody has the time to listen to all that. There are a few underground artists left e.g. M.F. Doom (got my ticket)
All I can say is that people get way too involved with this, as in 10 years most people on here will be forgotten and unheard of by the next generation. If youíre not careful and hold down a full time job youíll have money worries as well!
 Enjoy what fun you have and if you think the playing out/promotion bit is hard the label is even harder. Just my own experience though...
If you want to generate something positive from this thread I suggest that the promoters who would like to work with K*Ners put on a night (collab) with K*Ner plus another well known MC and some other promotional hype to bring in the people. If anything serious happens Iíd even consider helping out on with funding (only talking a few hundred though). People would need to do this for free to make it work.
16  General / The Forum / Re: Prince Paul and Dres of Black Sheep... on: April 03, 2009, 21:36:48
Its a shame that there was not allot of people who went and saw jay dee at one of his last concerts before he died, which was actually here in Bristol!  I think it annoys people becuase they didnt know about him and missed out. The man was a musical genuis - he touched allot of the music which came out during the 'Golden era' - he deserves the respect he gets. Slum had a good sound - but allot of their good stuff was missed off their albums - u need to dig for the proper slum.

Prince paul and Dres will make a good show - although I I'm not sure how the sheep tracks will go with just dres I  think he was more well know than Mista Lawnge though

18  General / The Forum / Re: SEASONFIVE 14.03 BREAKAGE (UK TOUR) - UNTOLD - HYETAL & MORE // THE TUBE - £5 on: February 25, 2009, 22:28:43
Forgive me for my ignorance, but I don’t think this is the same breakage I’m thinking of. There is one D&B guy called Breakage who had an album called 'This Too Shall Pass', listening to the myspace page i don’t think its him There was also a Breakage who Bailey used to play allot of his tracks about 1 or so ago (not sure if that’s the same guy either) . If anyone knows then it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Yes its a good album, although old mans hiphop has almost disappeared. There are a few artists who can still do it like Count bass D. I cant beleive that the 'believe' track is  a very similar track 'for my people'  on Large Pros unreleased LP LP  Grin ... ramble ova
20  General / The Forum / Re: Pinnacle Distribution go into administration!!!!?!!!! on: December 04, 2008, 22:55:45
Just my 10p....

New music will all be in digital format in 5-10 years. This will be available on itunes or specialised music hosting sites. Hosting music services like itunes and digital distributor's like tunecore will make money. A small % of this money Will goto the artist.
The only way that you can make money from music will be from hearing it live and being exposed to advertising while you watch it. I can see the clubs and festival circuits being bought out by big corporates.
The film industry will survive, although advertising will have a greater presence in music and film. I expect to see adverts during films at the cinema. If cinemas don't survive, then on your on demand services at home.

I like the idea of setting up a back catalogue hosting service - that could be allot of fun, but could be complicated...

phone primo, pete and q tip and just get it done, illmatic old boys reunion  Pimp.
tbh those three haven't done anythign of note for time and four egos in a room would be in danger of being shitmatic.

Some truth in those guys not having doen anything for a while. last thing I heard from tip was a few days ago and sounded like classic tip, but with that heard it before ring to it. The problem is that none of them made any real money and allot of them got stung with sample clearance.The difference is with most of their new stuff is you wont hear heavy sampling anymore and thats where they came from. Maybe I'm right - maybe I'm wrong... either way if its NAS, Jayz, Quas or even Amy Whiehouse the second albums arnt always better. NAS is keeping himself alive no matter who else suffers including hiphop - I would still listen to NAS than 50 by 100 miles and I'd still be runnin.  Wink but then I dont listen to NAS any more as I have other choices.
23  General / The Forum / Re: New Madlib LP - "Beat Konducta" on: October 26, 2007, 14:12:51
The india volume is really good in my opinion - movie scenes has been out for a while (both volumes) as far as I was aware and they are as good if not better than movie scenes if you like those India style beats - also very similar is oh no's beats lp. If you like madlib you should defo check Percee P "Perseverance" as it is produced by madlib and has some good stuff on there. There is also the new peanut butter compilation Lp b-ball zomibe - I'm starting to sound like a stones throw promoter here  Smiley . As an alternative to stones throw wiI would recommend the hunt for the gingerbread man by mf grimm - classic hip-hop style album!

I just wish there was somewhere that actually played these kinda beats these days... things done changed

25  General / The Forum / Re: Pharoahe Monch in Bristol (Now with full live band)!!!! on: June 21, 2007, 13:16:25
I thought that the promotion for this night wasnt very good and in the old days you would have seen allot more people in there. I think this is a sign of the times. Not a big fan of pharoahe's new album compared to his old stuff, a little bit too much rock (and screaming on the night Smiley ) for my liking. Only got a glimpse of the old stuff when he spat some lyrics from bring it on, but then I'm starting to show my age  Wink. Saying that, its a shame that we didnt hear much new hiphop from the support DJ's although I did miss the earlier DJ sets. Its sad to say but allot of the new underground hiphop is cd only. Just my say, so dont take it personal  Wink
26  General / The Forum / Re: Does anyone listen to Passsion FM? on: April 19, 2007, 11:59:38
brooklyn is doing some other thing now - seen some web site he set-up with girls and cars - cant remember the name - and that was a  while back.

Passion was around in 1994 then shutdown when powerjam went on air for a month legal. Then dance 104 came back on air in 97 then powerjam got another license and then things went dead again until passion started back up (we stopped playing then). I used to run the hiphop show which was the cutz. I can remeber some great venues and i bet they still have that crusty old tape deck and chunky mobile car phone thing to this day ;-)

More info about out show here if your that interested http://www.crutchporn.com/artists/trixta%20aka%20shiver/trixta/thecutz.html

28  General / The Forum / Re: Black Milk on: March 09, 2007, 18:39:18
Had to create an account to reply as I donít see decent hiphop mentioned these dayz. Milk album isnít bad, but the killer is Phatt Katt's  Carte Blanche Album - mostly dilla beats too! Have just got my hands on what I believe to be the Jay love Lp, although I'm sure I had it already. Ruff draft has also just dropped - I remember banging that in Lakota years ago and everyone was like wtf is this :-) .

p.s. What has happened to Redman - boy that album isnt what I was expecting.
