Edin Osmić stigao je početkom 90-ih godina s obitelji iz rodnog Brčkog u Zagreb kao izbjeglica pred ratom u Bosni i Hercegovini. U tom gradu završio je srednju školu, a potom se vratio u BiH i u Tuzli upoznao hip hop glazbu te s prijateljima osnovao razne bendove. Krajem 90-ih objavio je prve pjesme “Minimalni rizik” i “Mahir i Alma” koje su često emitirane na zagrebačkom Radiju 101 pa su postale poznate i u Hrvatskoj. Godine 2002. objavio je debitantski album “Slušaj mater” koji je bio jedan od najpopularnijih izdanja te godine. Do danas je objavio pet studijskih albuma, jednu kompilaciju i skladao glazbu za igrani film “Zlatna dolina”. Upravo zbog stihova i vještine pričanja priča, Maajku cijene i publika i glazbenici. U novom singlu “No Pasaran” opisao je jačanje radikalnih nacionalističkih političkih struja u zemljama bivše Jugoslavije i svijetu kroz situacije s kakvima se svakodnevno susreće običan čovjek. Posljednjih nekoliko godina Maajka živi u Tel Aviv u Izraelu sa suprugom Lilach Geva i kćeri. U razgovoru za Nacional govori o radikalnom nacionalizmu, položaju muslimanske manjine, izbjegličkoj krizi, prisjetio se svojih dana tijekom izbjeglištva, opisao je trenutnu situaciji u Izraelu i komentirao novu vladu premijera Tihomira Oreškovića te najavio svoj povratak u Hrvatsku.

I remember being at club Pay Day! back in the summer of 1988. All the dope girls and Dope boys were out in their freshest. That my first time seeing the original hip hop band Stetsasonic in the building. Little did I know their dj Prince Paul was only beginning. 3 classic De La Soul albums. Classic albums from the Grave Diggaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School. Working with legends like Big Daddy Kane; KRS-One, DOOM. One of my generations super producers, Paul walks us through his life and history. This is for the culture. #RaiseTheBar!

Ten years ago today, producer James Yancey aka J Dilla passed away unexpectedly. For hip-hop producers the world came to a standstill. No one saw it coming. That week, Dilla had celebrated his 32nd birthday and released his magnum opus, Donuts, to universal acclaim. Just as his life inspired so much great hip-hop, rap and neo-soul music, Dilla’s death inspired artists everywhere to honor his impact with an outpouring of dedications, imitations, and everything in between. For fans, the mourning period seemed to go on without pause, a processional wake that would last an era. Ten years later, the ripples are still being felt, from the worlds of hip-hop to jazz to electronic music.

The day Dilla passed, Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus spun a special live mix for dublab including hip-hop, rare grooves (some of which were sampled by Dilla and Madlib), exotic international records, and a few of Dilla’s own tracks. A fitting tribute to a producer who was able to include, in the words of Flying Lotus, so many voices on one record.

Stream and download FlyLo’s mix here.


For the latest installment of Rhythm Roulette, we got up with Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, whose random records consisted of albums from The Crusaders, Jim Caraldi, and Jan Garber. Les gave all the records a spin, but ended up pulling from the Jim Caraldi jawn, as well as Jan Garber record. Two beats in record time.

The Halftime Show 89.1FM Comes To An End

DJ Eclipse:

It’s been a great journey, but after 18 years I’ve decided to give The Halftime Show on 89.1FM an ending. March 2, 2016 will be the 18th anniversary of the show as well as the last show. We will have a big blowout show as we do every anniversary with a few producers, a ton of MCs and a DJ or two.

Thanks to all the artists that have come through over the years, guest hosts and DJs that have held me down while I was on tour and to the folks up at WNYU who continued to provide us with an outlet to play good music even after our time should have run out.

Special thanks to DJ Riz and Lynn Gonzalez who started the show with me 18 years ago and to all the staff that have contributed to the show throughout the years. Skizz, Petey Cologne, Marz One, Navani, Big Zoo, Soe, Naveen and anyone else that helped out in any way I thank you for your contributions and hope the listeners have enjoyed what we had to say/play.

Phat Phillie:

Had a pleasure of meeting Dilla twice. The year was 2000. at the Key Club in Los Angeles where Slum Vill performed alongside my boys Das EFX, Black Sheep & i think B.E.P. We was hanging out on the tour bus and i was amazed how Dilla was banging the MPC machine on stage like he had turntables. A few years after Baby Dooks & I were working on ASD album for Afrob & Samy Deluxe in Berlin and Dilla was producing a track on the same project. I was super lucky to have witnessed the great Dilla live in the studio working on this song:
