BIGGIE SMALLS: THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING

A fantastic kickstarter campaign has just started to publish some unseen photos of Biggie Smalls as part of an exhibition. The photos were took by a then aspiring photographer David Mcintyre for Interview Magazine, with the negatives lost up until recently (full story on the video below). They’ve since been found, but David has eschewed the usual push up on social media for exposure route to put them on in an exhibition, but after encountering a lack of funding took to the good old internet to get it.  Fund the campaign here.

You can read what I thought about BIG’s classic debut Ready To Die, the album these photos originally promoted, here.

MFS: Observatory ‘YY EP’


Most of this EP isn’t really  something for me TBH, well produced rolling techno which will probably sound great in a club but isn’t my bag, but the final cut ‘Y3’ I’m definitely down with. It’s got a decent solid groove on it with a kick that gets a right stomp going on. It’s full of tinkling effects, a fairly illegible vocal and is proper heads down tackle for those serious moments in the disco. Check it for yourself above.

The EP is out now on Butane’s Alphahouse imprint (he also contributes a remix). Head here for more info.
