POWER OF 3

1 - GENERAL LAW - [SELECTA PROFILE]

Little history lesson peeps - If ya dun know - mana they call the GENERAL LAW is THE original BRSS soundbwoy. Along with his father, the legendary MIGHTY MIGHTY J, the General sowed the seed of the BRSS in a dank as fuck working mans club in Bridgwater back in 2005. Second tuesday of every month saw General roll out the 'shit disco', (an ancient all in one soundsystem, predating the crossfader, with turntables covered in snooker table baize)-  a BBQ would be lit in the beer garden, and a selection of lovers, Chav DnB, and UKHH would run on the sound. The night was free and a dontation tin would be passed around for our awesome chosen charity, the white ribbon alliance for motherhood.

These our our humble roots - and we're proud of em.

General has since branched out and is now living in Brighton - still reppin for the BRSS family, and also a regular for ROOTS RENEGADE  soundsystem, and various UKHH events. 

The General also went to Orissa in India to check out the work the White Ribbon were able to do with some of our donation money, and more recently - headed to Tanzania to rep for the WRA (white ribbon alliance) and also be the first BRSS selectah to session in Afrika - alsongide the MIGHTY J, and Tanzanias own DJ TERRY (http://thebrss.blogspot.com/2010/08/brss-inna-afrikah.html)

And... finally, the man with the world record for longest rewind in a live set (10 minutes!) has gone digital and slapped together a mini mix for our collective listening pleasures - so 'ere be- enjoi

2 - BRSS CODPAST PART 2 - MOLESKIN 

Monday before last - mana they call the MOLESKIN     skillfully navigated his chopper onto the BRSS helipad at St. Annes, and generously banged out a podcast for you listening pleasure... It's free to download and has got so many cool nu tunes I had to seek counselling to recover. Get involved

3 - HOLLYWOOD COULDN'T WRITE IT

Big name actors from the 80's Hollywood action genre aren't generally synonymous with Dutty freak out pussy lovin dancehall but that could all be about to change.... 
   Steven Seagalm star of such awesome fils as 'on deadly ground', has taken time out from his normal activities to collaborate with LADY SAW  on a killa new tune STRUT. 

Yeah that's right BELIEVE! Expect to hear this soon on the BRSS. As well as this, Mr. Seagal (yea Mr. - respect!) is a celebrity figurehead for the radical US faction of 'LAWFUL REBELLION' , If you dun know bout this movement- you really should- it concerns each and everyone of us, and the pressure exerterted on us by babylon that makes everyday existence such a struggle. Click the link and liberate yourselves a bit. To accompany such radical reading, we recommend you press play on this:::::

BRSS CODPAST vol 1 : FREE DOWNLOAD!!!!

You can tell how good your podcast is by measuring how tidy your garage is...

...That's what the BRSS fam who attended this magic monday were to find out. Today, DUB PIKEY, RUKKAS and, the man who came all the way from Leeds for the occassion, tha MOLESKIN (aka Yusef Islam aka the artist formerly know as cat stevens, aka the foreskin) , banged on the coffee, rolled a millon Zena Badawis, and got MASH UP inna St. Annes yard - home of the BRSS...



3 Hours Later, we emerged with this....


HERE:HERE:HERE:HERE:HERE                                       ( not here)

-please hit us up with some feedback, we like to know what you think cos you're who we play this stuff for. We love seeing the dancefloor smiling back at us liking what we droppin' - also, we happy to give you tune ID for most of this mix - just tell us what point the tune you haffi know is and we'll sort you out- thebrss@hotmail.co.uk

We thought after this, as it was such a beautiful rare sunny october day, that we'd have a listen back to the 'cast in the garage whilst tidying up our cable boxes and dust off the sound.

We got so into it that 3 hours, and 15 bin bags of shit later, the garage is spruced to the max, top to the bottom, roof hovered, fuckin gleaming. It's a 2 thumbs up then on the podcast. hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.


BIG TINGS INNA B-RITE-ON:::

Manna they call tha RUKKUS has been maneouvreing all over the shop of late, making bare linkage, and one of the hottest of these has been linking with the ridiculously lush crew down at WONK#AY  RECORDS in Brighton. A tight crew of insanely talented producers and Djs, rinsing all things bass, they were kind enough to invite us along to play at their FREE PARTY at our favourite Brighton bass station, THE VOLKS. (incidently, the volks is the only venue we've ever wheeled the rig into, where a concerned looking landlord walks over and asks, "...um guys, I don't wanna be a bother, and I know you wanna play on your sound but, um, I thought maybe if we linked up your rig with our rig, then that'll just be twice as fuckin loud wont it!")



Needless to say it was a banging night, PIKEY and TROUTMASTER 3000 had a Mash-up, and then Brighton was treated to a rare flat-out no bullshit dubstep set from the RUKKAS (keep your eyes peeled for a forthcoming release from RUKKAS with these guys.

Volks was one out, one in from 12 midnight, all the way till 4.30 in the morning ---R O A D B L O C K!!!!
Big ups to the girls who came for the drive and giggles, trouty for his marathon driving skills, and all the fam who linked up at the event - think the South west boys n girls dominated half the venue!
