“Shash’U is undeniably next.” So sayeth The FADER, who just premiered “PXXXY,” the first cut off Shash’U’s upcoming PWRFNK EP. We agree! Get the song now when you pre-order PWRFNK on iTunes, and hear the whole thing on 3/31. We’ve also got a deluxe vinyl edition on deck collecting Shash’U’s Thru Da Night and PWRFNK EPs on two 12″s along with a fold-out poster of Ron Wimberly’s awesome wraparound joint cover artwork.
FCZ demolishes the EPK game with a hilarious new animated clip featuring testimonials from A-Trak, Flosstradamus and more intercut with his personal DJ history lessons and a paternity test courtesy Mannie Fresh. Seriously, must be seen to be believed… then go cop his new Slap It Down EP with DJ Scene.

Four Color Zack is a scratch champion and technical innovator. DJ Scene is a clubland institution from Miami to Vegas and beyond. These two “real DJing” vets understand party music like none other, and it shows all throughout their new Slap It Down EP. Featuring amped-up guest vocals from M.O.P. and Mad Lion, Slap It Down lays classic hip-hop party break vibes over modern-day dance muscle, resulting in a stoopidly fun listen for all ages (word to FCZ and Scene’s 8 year old Seattle neighbor Yung Lenox getting busy on the cover artwork). Grab it now on iTunes and get ready to airhorn. (And if you don’t believe us, watch fellow DJ heroes Q-Bert, Jazzy Jeff and more gleefully cutting up the title track after the jump.)
Cash RFC is a NYC graf institution. Over the years he has also become a prolific street photographer, capturing the city and its denizens in all of their harsh, unretouched glory. His Artist Series show at our store/gallery in Brooklyn combines both sides of Cash’s creative outlets, showcasing portraits of tags alongside the homeless and overlooked, with an uncanny eye for the heart in both. Come through for the opening on Thursday, 3/20 at 536 Metropolitan from 7-9pm. Refreshments will be served and limited edition shirts and photo prints will be available for purchase.
