The newest release on Thunder Zone is one that I am extremely proud of. A true meeting of the minds. American insanity 2016 style. The beat goes on. Let me lay it down for you: two new songs by LA-via-BMORE duo ODWALLA88 featuring a remix from frequent Zone collaborator and cult rap legend LIL UGLY MANE and art from Max Eisenberg aka DJ DOG DICK.

This is an important release and there is a lot to say (to start, ODWALLA88 are a game changing American punk band, and the remix and artwork are just insane kickers that will blow some minds… only on THUNDER ZONE) but the most important thing of all is that you support the goddamn Thunder Zone and buy a few copies RIGHT HERE. It comes with a sticker insert and is limited to 250 hand numbered copies. Please keep going, kids. The world is a fucked up ball of darkness but we all gotta try our best to stay positive and find some sort of meaning.

LET ME JUST GET INTO THIS STRAIGHT UP: I’M STARTING A NEW LABEL CALLED THUNDER ZONE ENT. AND I’M PSYCHED. WHAT ARE MY PLANS? I PLAN ON DOING ANYTHING I WANT AND GETTING EXTREMELY SICK WIT IT. TEE SHIRTS, ENERGY DRINKS, VINYL RECORDS, STICKERS, IPAD APPS – THERE ARE NO RULES. IN THE SPIRIT OF FACTORY RECORDS EVERYTHING GETS A CATALOG NUMBER BUT BEYOND THAT ANYTHING GOES.

I’M KICKING OFF THE LABEL WITH A LIMITED EDITION 7″ (TZ001) BY ONE OF MY FAVORITE CURRENT RAP GROUPS – HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA’S G-SIDE. ON THE FLIP THERE IS AN EXCLUSIVE G-SIDE REMIX BY MY BUDDIES JAVELIN, READ ALL ABOUT IT OVER AT PITCHFORK. THE RECORD COMES OUT IN EARLY DECEMBER AND THERE WILL BE MUCH MORE INFO SOON. THE SECOND RELEASE (TZ002) WILL BE A LOGO STICKER DESIGNED BY ZANE REYNOLDS AKA SFV ACID.

2K12 WILL SEE ENERGY DRINKS AND TEE SHIRTS AND MORE RECORDS AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE. MORE ANNOUNCEMENTS SOON, THIS IS JUST THE START. I’M TRYING TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE ALL RAGERS AND THE DREAMERS OUT THERE.

ENTER THE THUNDER ZONE.

A COUPLE YEARS AGO I MADE A DANCE MUSIC DJ MIX USING ALL VINYL RECORDS FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION CALLED “IN THE MIX 100 PERCENT VINYL.” A LOT OF B-BOY HOUSE, PRIVATE PRESS BASS, EARLY BMORE, CHICAGO STYLE JACKERS AND BOOTY/GHETTOTECH IN THE MIX. MOST OF THESE RECORDS WERE ACQUIRED IN CHEAPO OR DOLLAR BIN SECTIONS OF RECORD STORES OR THRIFT SHOPS. GROWING UP NEAR CHICAGO HAS ITS BENEFITS. I’M PRETTY SURE MOST IF NOT ALL OF THE TRACKS ON THIS MIX WERE MADE IN BETWEEN 1987 AND 1997 AND LISTENING BACK FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME, IT IS SOUNDING DAMN GOOD. SOME OBSCURE STUFF, SOME MEGA HITS AND SOME THINGS IN BETWEEN PLUS LOTS OF STUPID DJ EFX THAT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD IDEA BACK THEN AND STILL DO NOW SOMETIMES. A LOT OF THESE RECORDS ARE PART OF THE CORE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE JUICEBOXXX AND DRE SKULL TRILOGY OF DANCE MUSIC 12″S. REMEMBER WHEN FUN REALLY WAS FUN? FREE DOWNLOAD BELOW. I STILL DJ OUT ON OCCASION AND I AM AVAILABLE FOR BOOKINGS. NO TRACKLISTING AVAILABLE.

CHRISTREATER AND KID MILLIONS ARE TWO MILWAUKEE LEGENDS OF THE GAME THAT HAVE BEEN HAVE BEEN DOING SICK SHIT FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER. THEY RECENTLY JOINED FORCES TO START AN AWESOME RECORD LABEL CALLED DOPE FOLKS RECORDS THAT SPECIALIZES IN REISSUING RARE GOLDEN ERA HIP HOP. DOPE FOLKS HAS PUT OUT THREE RELEASES SO FAR AND EACH ONE IS A BANGER. THEIR FORTH RELEASE BY AN OBSCURE MILWAUKEE RAPPER CALLED ROCK LA FLOW IS COMING OUT SOON AND JUDGING BY THE YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOVE IT IS ONE FOR THE BOOKS. THEY CALL IT “MILWAUKEE’S ILLMATIC” AND THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ME. IT IS INSPIRATIONAL TO SAY THE LEAST TO SEE SOME MUSICAL JEMS FROM THE HEARTLAND BEING UNEARTHED AND PRESENTED FOR THE WORLD TO ENJOY!
