Massive classic hip hop show tonight. On the tails of the New Frontiers supporter drive, we took it old school. Ready or Not whether you’re part of the Everyday Struggle or living the Street Life Mike Who? dropped some serious beats, so criminal it made you think about investing in a Getaway Car. But this is What We Do.
We also had the darlings of Aussie hip hop Tuka (Thundamentals) and Ellesquire (Loose Change) spit some rhymes. Despite their backstage diva antics (green tea + lemon requests) they were good sports on air and freestyled their way out of an intergalactic theme.
Closing the show was a set from NZ hip hop Don P-Money. This chap is touring Sydney and Melbourne (with the ultra fine and um, talented David Dallas) promoting his album Gratitude.
Speaking of gratitude, FBi Radio is having a super rad out-of-this-world New Frontiers supporter drive. In addition to winning cool prizes, your donation helps keep great shows like this one on air. More information here: http://fbiradio.com/newfrontiers/

It was a mid week winter festival madness at the FBi studios this Wednesday. Festival organiser Lord Ichiban packed the The Stolen Records studio with a line up that was off the hook. And admission was free!
Getting us warmed up for things to come, we started the show with a Mike Who? dancehall mini-set. Once warmed up, we let the Flatbush Zombies chew on our brains with talk of kangaroo beatdowns and all-around backstage antics that consisted of tea drinking, mini pear eating dares and an Atari.
Stalking in midway through was Norwegian DJ diety, Cashmere Cat purring his way through an rnb infused, jersey club trappy set.
And not to be forgotten is D-Rakkas of the South Rakkas Crew. He foreshadowed the great things that will be going down at this Saturday’s Dutty Dancing party at Goodgod Small Club.
It was a half n hour of power. In just 30 min Foreign Beggars, Borgore and 12th Planet exploded onto the airwaves with massive basslines and so much energy. Twitter was going crazy as the transformed the show into something you would expect to hear on London pirate radio.
