BLAK TWANG aka TONY ROTTEN

From Hip Hop to Dancehall to Grime, Blak Twang (born Tony Olabode, England) who also uses the pseudonyms of Taipanic and Tony Rotton, is a British rapper who grew up in Deptford, Lewisham, South-East London.

His debut single was 1995’s “What Goin’ On”. His debut album, Dettwork SouthEast – Blak Twang : The Lost Classic (a pun on the rail company Network SouthEast) was sent out to the media for self-promotion but never released. It included “Real Estate” and the title track, “Dettwork SouthEast”. His second album, 19 Long Time, also suffered from record label obstruction. The album included “Red Letters” and Roots Manuva collaboration, “Shhhoosh”.

However, his 2002 album Kik Off was awarded full label release, and spawned several singles, the football themed “Kik Off”, Twang anthem “So Rotton”, and “Trixsta” (featuring Estelle), all of which achieved radio play and a degree of commercial success. In 2005 he released the album The Rotton Club, backed with the single “GCSE (Ghetto Children Sex Education)” featuring Twang’s protégé (and Rottonus Records signee) K9. Twang also released another single from the album in late 2005, “Travellin” which featured Barrington Levy in the original album version, but the video featured the First Man Remix with female singer Tali.

DJ MR THING (DMC CHAMPION / THE DOCTOR’S ORDERS / SCRATCH PERVERTS)
http://www.djmrthing.com/

Known worldwide as a DJ & turntablist Mr Thing is a name synonymous with Hip-Hop that always brings a smile to the faces of fans and promoters alike as they remember genius performances of impeccable skill. First touching the tables in 1987 he has been non-stop perfecting his art since and is now one of the worlds best. Touring the world with an understanding of records and music that is second to none, he always creates flawless and exciting sets mixing some of the rarest records with some of the best loved records ever heard with an apparently effortless ease honed after years of practice.

If Mr Thing is playing at a party… make sure you GO! You will never be disappointed!
Rocking parties is not the limit of his skils, not even close!

He has won DJ battles, both solo and as part of the Scratch Perverts, has a production discography that is the envy of most. He is responsible for some of the most perfect mixtapes & for a string of BBE released compilations including the creatively titled “STRANGE BREAKS & MR THING” and of course the rightly titled “KINGS OF HIP HOP” with DJ Premier.

Juice Aleem first made waves as one third of New Flesh, a trailblazing UK crew who, across three albums of lyrically intelligent rap coloured in with soca, electro and dancehall sounds, did much to give UK hip-hop a distinctly homegrown flavour. Aleem’s debut solo album, recorded in collaboration with Gamma producer Blackitude, is, on the surface, similar to the output of New Flesh, but if anything this finds Aleem musing more personally, pondering religion and race, lashing out at lazy rappers, and getting philosophical about his place as a third-generation immigrant in a land where, ”rice and peas is now chips and ketchup”.

Patrón TequilaSource: Patrón the Summer

‘PATRÓN THE SUMMER’ ARRIVES IN BIRMINGHAM THIS WEEKEND!

This weekend, Patrón Tequila will host the second stop on its ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail tour at street food and drink venue, Hawker Yard, Birmingham.Throughout the summer, Patrón will be travelling the length and breadth of the UK, delivering simply perfect Patrón summer cocktails. Crafted by the most celebrated local bartenders in town, these cocktails include a mix of refreshing summer favourites, twists on classics and locally-inspired serves.

For visitors of Hawker Yard, the ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail airstream will serve three hero summer serves alongside a specially created serve for Birmingham, based on local trends and insight.

14344859_1575261219450409_7500454560328653517_n

The airstream will be there from 5pm – Midnight on Friday 23rd June and 12pm – 12am on Saturday 24th June and will feature Mexican street food traders, The Mexican Bean, along with the infamous DJ Silence, providing the tunes for the night.

Mixologist, Thomas Matthews of The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel & Cocktail Lounge, will be serving up his own creation, Patrón British Summer Time, garnished with an apple fan and mint sprig. This refreshing cocktail with be alongside the Patrónic (a tequila-interpretation of the classic Gin and Tonic), a classic Patrón Margarita and the refreshingly fruity Patrón Paloma, made with grapefruit soda.

Each hero cocktail is made using Patrón Silver tequila, a 100% Weber Blue Agave tequila that mixes flawlessly into any cocktail, especially those that traditionally call for vodka, gin
or white rum.

Talking of his creation, Thomas Matthews, Assistant Bar Manager of The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel & Cocktail Lounge, said: “I wanted to create something that would be super refreshing for the British Summer, even though it only tends to last a week, but also
build in layers of flavour. The bergamot and apple really boost the summer vibes but the gentian and quinine provide a moreish, dry finish to the drink that makes you want to keep sipping. The curvature of the apple garnish holds beautiful synergy with the iconic Birmingham Bull Ring building. All of the flavours used compliment the Patrón Reposado tequila and its delicious balance of oak and citrus.”

The ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail airstream will feature an interactive mural photo wall, take a picture on your phone and tag using the #PatronTheSummer hashtag and your picture will automatically be printed out on site.

If you miss Thomas at the ‘Patrón The Summer’ cocktail airstream, his Patrón British Summer Time will be available as a special at The Edgbaston Boutique Hotel & Cocktail Lounge in Birmingham all weekend.

The Patrón The Summer initiative will be touring the UK and US this summer, for more information please visit www.patronthesummer.com
