FS Green (2009) Rookie Season

FS Green (2007-2009) Rookie Season

In His Own Words.....

I started crafting beats in 2004. My first production on an album was in 2006. People started catching up to my music in 2007.. about time to compile some of my music that I have produced so far.

There's two different ways you can look at "Rookie Season". If you are familiar with my music you'll probably find some tracks on it that you've heard before. You might know these from albums, but some tracks have only been played on the radio or in mixes or mixtapes. Here are all those tracks plus some extra's, only with no shouts or sound effects on it, in a nice quality.

If you haven't heard a lot of FS Green productions yet, you can see this as a full album, consisting of tracks, remixes, instrumentals and a few interludes. Most of these interludes where taken from radio shows over the passed three years.

However you may receive this, just make sure you enjoy it.
Mr. Maze made the artwork so it looks good in your iTunes too!

First Touch (2009) First Touch LP

Finally here it is, the long awaited First Touch debut longplayer. During a creative period of almost two years and several unexpected breaks and ups and downs, the two band members nanthara and jelly put all strength together and selected 10 fine boogie tunes to please your thirst for authentic true 80's funk'n'disco grooves. It's officially released early 2009 on their own homebase label Highsteppin records. The tunes were completely mastered by our partner in crime Reeno at spazzoid studios nyc. The group's first release got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of those bass-driven grooves that made the late 70ies disco, early 80ies funk years so fascinating to funkheads all around the world. Originality is the ruler of the set, and most tracks here vamp around in a very smooth modern soul style of groove.

Lots of chord progressions jumping around irresistible rhythms, a reduced but effective ensemble arrangement style, and not to mention an armada of synthesizers help keep things clean and mean. From the smooth midtempo tune 'all because of you' to the more uplifting gem 'it's yours', you can't help but smile. Groove & move to the debut lp from this Germany/Mannheim based funk group, delivering a long lost goodtimesfeel along with the side-dishes of boogie and modern soul.

Sir OJ & FS Green (2009) Remixing EP

New drop from production extrodinaires hailin from the land of the Dutch. Story behind this EP? Dutch radio station KINK FM and television network Veronica (V-Academy) recently did this program called CollabOrHate. Each week they put 2 totally different artist / singer / band / producer / musician in a studio for 6 hours, with the idea of making a track together, and see if they would Collab or Hate. Simple, fun.

This resulted in 6 episodes. KINK FM approached FS & SirOJ, asking if they'd be interested in remixing 6 tracks..........Enjoy

Oddisee, X.O. & Y.U (Diamond District) (2009) In the Ruff

Y.U., Oddisee & X.O. Respectively

New from Oddisee, X.O. & Y.U......dope music from Hip-Hops Best at present, and mos-definately the best on the mic, props to the Low Budget Movement, check this ill-release.

The District of Columbia is home to our nations politics and some of the wealthiest African Americans in the country. It is also home to one of the nations largest income gaps with some of the highest crime, murder and STD rates. It is the culmination of these statics that defines DC Hip Hop. Oddisee (producer/MC from Prince George’s county, Maryland) formed this group with solo artist, XO and YU. The idea was to create a mid-90’s boom-bap themed record for the DC, Maryland & Virginia metropolitan area. XO, (born & raised in North West DC) defines what it is to be a black male raised in the district, with lyrics that have a way of philosophizing that street life. Oddisee defines the experience of growing up in black middle class Maryland. Bordering the poverty his and many other families fled to escape, they found the troubles of the inner city came along with them. YU, having been raised in the district, Maryland & Virginia, shows that DC culture exceeds it’s 10 mile radius. “In The Ruff” is the DMV’s soundtrack. its street savvy, politically conscious lyrics and grimy beats depict life in and around our nations capitol.

Hip-Hop Connection Digital Magazine Issue 01

Keepin up with the jones' is a tedious but exciting element of modern marketin, advertisin & Journalism, with that in mind HHC, Hip-Hops longest servin Magazine came to a halt this year......& also began.

Its new distrubution techniques involve the online world, the 1st issue, is available free for download from their webpage, whether charges will be introduced in future is beyond my knowledge at be honest I don't really care.

The Magazine features MF Doom whom is due to drop his long awaited LP shortly (although shitheads have big-time bootlegged that), Charles Hamiton, Ghost, Delegates Of Culture, Wordsmith & Inc The Poet & The extremely Talented Mr Lif, as always with HHC you can expect reviews of newcommers from LP's to Artists & of course alotta useless jargon & some highly contreversial comments from some of their moronic writers.

MERCURY (2009) Beacuse I feel Like It

Ain't listened to the jus dropped joint from Cali MC, East Oakland where a certain Souls of Mischief hail from. whats in a name some may ask......M.E.R.C.U.R.Y, which stands for "Messenger Expressing Rhymes of Consciousness Unto Revolutionary Youth". He likes to be called "Merc" for short.
The Roman god Mercury was his favorite mythological figure because this character served as the messenger between Gods and humans. Merc felt it was the purpose of the poet/musician to be the communicator between the spiritual world and mankind. He's also a Gemini, who's ruling planet is Mercury, and he describes his rap style as being like the liquid-metal by the same name.

Now thas what i call deep.....chk this latest joint & check his page to

Adrian Champion (of Move.Meant) - Stars & Stripes LP

Adrian Champion grew up in the Flint area of Michigan, where a blue-collar upbringing shaped his perspective on life and later, his music. By the age of 13, he was hooked on hip hop, unwittingly learning to write rhymes by transcribing the lyrics of groups like Public Enemy. But it wasn't until moving to California shortly after high school that he would find an outlet for his own creativity. It was there that he'd meet other aspiring artists and record for the first time. Although this early work was rough, it was clear he had something. That something evolved from just rapping and making beats, to writing and producing, composing, playing guitar, and even singing. Refusing to become complacent or stay in a particular box, Adrian is constantly adding to his repertoire and exploring new creative directions, from his own self-produced solo project to his writing and production for artist Brian Jacobs and others.

The LP features, Jay-Z, Nas, M.O.P., Busta Rhymes, Eminem, Young Jeezy, RedMan, Outkast, TuPac, Biggy & the legendary Pharoahe Monch

Adrian Champion - Stars & Stripes LP

Adrian Champion - Stars & Stripes instrumentals


I was late jumping on The White Stripes bandwagon. But, when I heard "Doorbell" a few years back I became an instant fan. That raw, classic sound was so fresh to me. I went straight to iTunes and downloaded the whole album. It wasn't long before I owned everything they'd ever released.

What really got me was that I wanted to sample almost every song. But, I couldn't just shamelessly sample their whole catalog. Plus, I had just decided to move away from sampling and focus on writing original music. So, a remix project seemed like the thing to do, and the idea was born.

I started digging through my collection and fitting all the pieces together. My goal was to use only samples from The White Stripes and a cappellas from classic songs and my favorite emcees. And of course, I had to rap on one of the tracks myself, with my man Brian Jacobs on the hook.

So there it is, hip-hop fans, meet The White Stripes.
Fans of The White Stripes, meet hip-hop.
