Cold Facts :: BLXPLTN Talks ‘FEMA’ Live At Swan Dive

Even in a country as rich in resources as North America, you run into disparity quite often.  With the recent slate of continued hurricanes that have hit the south and southeast, old patterns are emerging, and an errant foundation is gaining strength.  Almost a year ago, BLXPLTN took the time to point out an example of this by writing FEMA, an exposé on the level of help the poor are provided in the times that they need it the most.  This particular video is from a recent performance at Swan Dive in Austin, and was captured by Son and Son Productions.  This track can be purchased on BLXPLTN‘s Bandcamp page, and all proceeds go towards hurricane relief.

Good Combinations :: NGHT HCKLRS + FOCI + Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice Bombard Swan Dive

As September drew to an end, a show was scheduled at Swan Dive involving NGHT HCKLRS and BLXPLTN.  Recently, NGHT HCKLRS has been known to collab with various MCs across the spectrum of Austin hip hop.  On this particular night, the Fragments of a Conscious Eye (FOCI) crew were in the house, as was Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice (myself), and of course NGHT HCKLRS decided to set if off.  FOCI especially came with it on the evening, as their usually energy boost hit the crowd perfectly, and Ben Buck‘s split second decision to beatbox during his freestyle combined beautifully with what NGHT HCKLRS were throwing out there.  If you catch word all of these elements will be in the same building again anytime soon, don’t front.
