ARTSEHCRO - CONCERTO FOR TURNTABLE

DJ Radar Unleashes (On NYC) the CONCERTO FOR TURNTABLE!
Presented By RedBull
2pm on Sunday, October 2nd at Carnegie Hall NYC.

For the first time ever, a turntable will be played as an instrument on the main stage at NYC's prestigious Carnegie Hall. The event is called the Red Bull Artsehcro, which features the International collegiate orchestra along side DJ Radar, for the first ever performance of DJ Radar and Raul Yanez's Concerto for Turntable.
This concerto challenges the pre-conceived notions of classical music by featuring the turntable, played by DJ Radar, as the piece’s highlight instrument. Backing Radar will be a full sixty piece symphony orchestra. What happens next will truly be history in the making.

To attend the world premiere of Concerto for Turntable, go to http://www.carnegiehall.org to purchase tickets.

LONGEVITY CREW



Pooling the talents of StesOne, Choice37, and DJ Rel, Longevity Crew is redefining the way music is made. Combining the elements of each member, creating a musical alchemy, Longevity Crew is here to crush all sterotypes of what hip-hop is seen as. Speaking with an innate emotional dexterity yet to be seen within hip-hop, Longevity Crew is quickly craving a niche that is all their own.

Playing to the strengths of each member, Longevity Crew is a rare breed of hip-hop act. With StresOne's Storytelling and lyricism, Choice37's production and wordsmith ability, and Dj Rel's audio foundation, the group coalesces into the tight knit mental fabric of the listener, generating a warmth that can only be described as a meeting at the table of like minds and endless understand. Longevity Crew is here to transport you from the present to the future, using only your ears as a guide.

I'm all about supporting local hip hop, but with the talent that these guys have they won't be local anymore. With thought-provoking lyrics and jazzy downtempo beats, these cats are definitely making moves. RECOMMENDED

check out a few snippets from their album:

Cesar Comanche on ABB Records


Cesar Comanche is one of the founding members of the lauded North Carolina hip-hop collective better known as the Justus League. The Justus League is also home to critically acclaimed act Little Brother who helped put the crew on the map with the success of their debut album The Listening (ABB Records) in 2002.

After a few years of working and perfecting his craft, Comanche along with 9th Wonder, organized their fellow friends and rap artists in the Triangle's hip-hop scene and started the Justus League Crew in 1999. Since then, he has performed with such acts as Tha Liks, The Coup, Hieroglyphics, ZMan, Dilated Peoples, Living Legends, Faust & Shortee, and Wordsworth to name a few. The album features a string of guest appearances including Tajai from the Souls of Mischief, Phonte and Big Pooh of Little Brother, and several Justus League members as well as production by 9th Wonder (Little Brother, Jay-Z, Destiny's Child), Nicolay (Foreign Exchange), Khrysis (Justus League) and more. When asked what inspired the Squirrel and the Aces, Comanche said, "The album title comes from my father's band he had in the early seventies; my mother was also a singer in that group. This album is dedicated to my parents group and also is a celebration of the musician/entertainer." Squirrel and the Aces debuts September 20th 2005.
