It's been a long time....

Indeed it's been a while since my last post... better late than never though.

I've been checkin out Q-Tip's latest album HARD over the last week and have been going through some old Tribe records as well. Came across this vid on YouTube and thought I'd share... enjoy.

DMC's this weekend.... Aucklander's are spoiled!

How spoiled are we? Three international visitors in the space of two weeks. I'm hella looking forward to this event for a few reasons;

1. I'm not DJing for a change, means I can get crunkified with the homies.

2. Blu is a fucking stupendous MC, his releases to date have been nothing short of breath taking, especially Johnson & Jonson - Powders & Oils. This one is on heavy rotate in my Daxian.

3. We get to see who the best, most guttiest turntablist in the land is. I really have no idea who it would be at the moment, but I guess I'm gonna be making noise for my Auckland homies Turksta & D-Form.

See you's there then.

P.S. sorry for the slow posting at the moment... serious family issues are taking priority.. stay tuned.

Kobe gets Shaq Attacked!

The raw nerve of this guy.... Did anyone remind him & his bad knee that he transfered to the Suns, not the Celtics? I guess he has a lot on his mind... i.e. bills

Shaq will always be one of my favorite NBA rappers, although not great technically, he has better raps than most of the NBA "mc's?"

His rookie days were some of the greatest, in both his rap career terms, and ball terms...

and how could I forget this abomination of a video game!

Shaq Fu was possibly the worst of ALL the Street Fighter clones but we played it none the less.

Shaq... u da man!

Disruptiv Mix Tape Vol 5 is FREE AND OUT NOW!!!

Thats right... yesterday we had 2000 units arrive and we are in the process of distributing them right now. There are some on the way to Wellington, Christchurch, Palmy North, H-Town and I'll even try and get some sent over to my Cali connects.

In Auckland, Loaded, Harlem 23, Beat Merchants and DMC all have mixtapes.

If you prefer to download however, I will be posting a copy within the next few days.

I'm stoked to finally get this one out, it sounds really good and is a tribute to how far New Zealand hip hop artists have come in the last few years... big ups to all the artists who got on this and to the dudes that missed out, well, I'm sorry, next time?!

Game of the Year?

Okay so GTA4 looks pretty, the A.I. is stunning, in game music is fantastic, online game play is hours of fun, but I'm a little miffed that the solo game isn't longer. GTA 3 seemed to take an age to finish, but this new version, well, I'm 50% through after 2 weeks of alternating NBA08 and GTA4. Also lacking on the PS3 version is being able to have a custom track list of songs, although there are rumors that a future update might include some sort of patch for this.

I was stoked when I got a newsletter from EA games this afternoon to find out that 2 contenders for my game of the year are not too far from releasing...


This game looks nuts and has the potential to be played forever. I watched this video awhile ago and have been waiting patiently ever since. The initial release will be a creature creator in which players will create character content for the actual product. Hard out.

Battlefield: Bad Company

I've been messing about on BF2 for awhile and finding it fun. BFBC, however looks next level and I'll for sure try and get a copy when it comes out.

R.I.P Camu Tao

Very sad news...

Today, at around 2pm, our dear friend, family member and musical collaborator Tero “CAMU TAO” Smith passed away in his home town of Columbus, Ohio. Tero had been quietly fighting for his life for the last year and a half after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

To those who knew Tero, he was an almost uncategorizable force of nature. Wild, hilarious, proud, loving, tough, outspoken, spontaneous and brilliant. He wore his heart on his sleeve and he dripped creativity, leaving inspiration and awe in the hearts and minds of anyone who was fortunate enough to see him work.

We, his friends and family, have truly had our collective hearts broken by his passing. Not only because of the loss of our friend, but because of the loss of his contribution to those who never knew what we knew about his talent and his potential. He was the secret that no one wanted to keep and we always knew that one day his vision and his heart could change music forever the way he changed all of our lives.

His departure from us all 1 month away from his 31st birthday is nothing less than a tragedy… nothing less than a crime. he was a gift to us all and he is irreplaceable. Rest in peace, Mu. We will love you forever. May god bless you and your family.

Tero “CAMU TAO” Smith
born 6/26/77, passed 5/25/08

jaime “el-p” meline (on behalf of many, many wonderful and broken hearted friends)

Disruptiv Mixtape Re-Up

To celebrate New Zealand Music Month and the upcoming release of Disruptiv Mixtape Volume 5, I've decided to 're-up' the one that kicked it all off... the legendary Volume 1, in crystal clear, 320kbps MP3 format!

I've had to split it in two to get it up on zShare so hopefully you guys can be bothered d/ling both... (it's worth it, trust me!)

Lots of cool things happening at the moment, is back online after some time being spent on a redesign, also in the pipeline right now is (big thanks to Adam Morris for helping a brother out in this time of need!).

Auckland's number 1 RnB night Honey will be returning to Globe Bar next month, and ya boys been confirmed on the line up. Gotta say I'm looking forward to ripping the club with a set of commercial RnB again. I'll post more info when it comes to hand.

My top 10 NBA plays of 07-08 season...

So with the end of the NBA regular season coming up fast, I thought I'd share my top ten plays so far.


This is a nice way to announce your presence in the pro's.


I was at this game... Baron and Monta Ellis are amazing to watch play.


I was really disappointed when Dwight Howard's sticker dunk didn't win last years Dunk Contest... this made up for it though.


This game gave me some hope for next season.


Jamario Moon is 'sick, wicked and nasty' he's for sure one of the stories of the season.


I heard Glen 'Big Baby' Davis used to play college football... this is fan take down of the season.




I never thought Dirk's mug would make such a great poster.


With Yao Ming limping around shooting Master Card ad's, Dwight Howard is in my opinion the NBA's best center at the moment. If he shines in the play offs the Magic could make a Finals birth, don't bank on it though, the East is tough this year.


Kobe... best player in the league? I don't know, Le Bron vs Kobe is so hard to call, but Kobe takes out my play of the season so far with this dunk over D-12.

More ball...

Best be taking your Nuggets jerseys back to Footlocker and swapping it for a Kevin Durant.

He only scored 4 points in the game before this one... but he's really playing well at the moment, a shame it's the wrong end of the season, the Sonics are well out of the running. There's always next year!

Let's hear it for the little guy.

DAAAMN... this one could be a contender for dunk of the year... matter of fact I'm gonna post up my top ten NBA plays at some stage soon. Stay tuned....
