WE ARE AT WAR – so it was our pleasure to be joined at the front line by the general that is DJ Premier. Forever consistent, Premier breaks down the specifics of his many forthcoming projects and collaborations, including the much anticipated project The Kolexion with Bumpy Knuckle’s, which he reveals was initially suposed to feature a collaboration with DMX instead of Flavor Flav. Informative, interesting and exciting, we also discuss and explore upcoming work with the likes of Busta Rhymes, KRS-One, Vinnie Paz, Showbiz & A.G, Jeru The Damaja, 7L & Esoteric and Inspectah Deck, NYG’z and Rakim, Chris Brown and an album with M.O.P! Perhaps most interesting, however, just might be the revelation that he and Pete Rock are starting a new business called PVP (Pete VS. Premier). In addition, we touch on the status of his forthcoming album with Pete Rock, which originally was set to be a double CD with one CD representing mainstream and the other the underground, as well as his long awaited LP with Nas, which although on hold, he still plans on recording!

Dva omiljena klupska brenda zagrepčana po prvi puta će ujediniti snage kako bi zajedno predstavili najbolje od r&b i hip-hop kulture u Zagrebu. Nakon skoro deset godina druženja, klupskih bajki i tuluma, Blackout i RNB Confusion odlučili su zagrebačkim clubberima ponuditi „jam“ za pamćenje. Dva floor-a i dvije pozornice na kojima će se predstaviti „artisti i DJ-i“, protagonisti ova dva popularna branda. Oba branda već godinama čine stupove te su nositelji r’n’b i hip-hop scene u Hrvatskoj, a svojom premijernom suradnjom okupit će svoje orginalne postave DJ-eva uz pratnju gostujućih MC-ija. Ova suradnja je ujedno i poziv svim pripadnicima, ljubiteljima i prijateljima ova dva branda, ali i R&B i Hip-Hop kulture da zajedno podrže događaj koji će mjesec ožujak pretvoriti u najplesniji klupski mjesec.

R’n’B floor pripast će ekipi RNB Confusion-a na kojem će se za DJ pultom izmjenjivati redom eminentna DJ imena ovog branda: OLI DOBOLLI, ZRNA, EM BEE i SHEKO uz goste iznenađenja. Od zavodljivog Montell Jordana, preko plesnog Justin Timberlake-a pa sve do klupskih bengera uz Chris Brown-a, ekipa RNB Confusion-a natjerat će Vas na ples do posljednje kapi znoja.

Hip-Hop floor će tako zauzeti postava BLACKOUT-a, pa će se tako na pozornici izmjenjivati legende Hip-Hop scene kao što su DJ-evi BIZZO BODEGA, PHAT PHILLIE, INDEPENDENT i gosti. Nakon dugo vremena, zajedno će povodom ove prilike za DJ pultom svirati Blackout DJ postava koja će zagrebačkoj publici predstaviti najbolje od HIP-HOP-a. Za sve ljubitelje hip-hop klasika, oldschool-a ali i novijih hip-hop numera biti će ovo „must be floor“ na kojem će drmati svoje glave i bokove.
