Here’s a classick Tecktonics sitting idle for a while. I’ve burned this one out on my mp3 player, but it’s new to all of you. DJ Alias brings the goods. Sets are nice and long too, 40 mins each. Let me know if you can identify the “who the hell is that ?little-ass? man“-sampling track on Set 2.

Also, check MC Abdominal on Set 2 doing a collab with DJ Static from WeFunk fame.

I told chief not to start no beef
He tried to shoot me with his gun
I caught the bullet with my teeth

..I kick verses off the middle of my brain..

Y'all niggas must be outta ya head
If your system ain't up to the red

Here’s some more Tecktonicks, recorded in June 2006. There are three files here, I noticed when I post more than one set in a post people only seem to download the first one… do I have to do this?


What to look out for: Hoodratz (and the “Wascals(?)” track following it), Da King and I, Ras Kass…

Respect to DJ Alias for these sets; I’m not feeling hip hop today either, great minds think alike and whatnot.

Playlist provided by CKLN – they are on point with playlists, every show on the station — hip hop or not — gets playlisted. Good stuff.

Tecktonicks is on CKLN 88.1 Tuesday nights (Wednesday mornings) directly after Circle Research, 2AM-6AM. They rarely go on the mic, so I’m not sure exactly how many people are in on this but I can assume DJ Alias is probably doing it solo. Here’s a nice set that finishes out a March 2006 show. Check out the G-Knight gem, Toronto heat from the mid 90’s.
