You'll remember parts 1 and 2 of his Cosmic Freakout which we podcasted here right? Well he put out part 3 a while back and part 4 recently. Part 3 will be podcasted next but part 4 was so ill it leaped over part 3 to get podcasted first.
Kinetik stays busy, he ain't got no kids... that he knows of. But even if he did, he'd been busy still. Remember, his show "Psychedelic Soul Shack" airs Saturdays 11 PM to midnight central on CJUM 101.5 FM in Winnipeg, MTS Cable 718 in Manitoba and online at www.umfm.com/listenonline. Stay up on it here... http://www.mixcloud.com/psychedelicsoulshack/. Stay up on his grisly discoveries here... http://thegrislydiscovery.blogspot.ca/. Enjoy!
P.S. Thanks to all you heads holding us down since the Dope Joints! Hip Hop Mixshow ended. We are still almost constantly within the top 10 Hip Hop podcasts on Podomatic. Respect due!

Dope Joints! Hip Hop Mixshow

- DJ Stress was part of a Hip Hop Mixshow with the Aftermath Sound Crew back in 1995, which cablecasted from the University of Winnipeg.
- DJ Stress, Dialog and Sunil aka Francois scored a mixshow they called The Stress Files which aired Saturday nights from the fall of 1996 to the spring of 1997 on Envol CKXL 91.1 FM from the Franco-Manitobain Cultural Centre.
- DJ Stress, Dialog and Mr. Ness scored a mixshow they called Hip Hop 101 which aired Wednesday nights and later Friday nights starting in September 1998 at UMFM CJUM 101.5 FM Campus & Community Radio at the University of Manitoba. DJ Stress and Mr. Ness eventually went on to other things and myself and later Kinetik joined the show.
- Dialog & I scored a second mixshow dubbed Hip Hop 201 by Jared McKetiak who was our program director at the time (and later/currently our station manager). Hip Hop 201 aired Thursday afternoons starting in September 1999.
- I left Hip Hop 101 due to artistic differences in the spring of 2004 and started The Dope Spot Hip Hop Mixshow which aired Wednesday nights.
- The Dope Spot began syndication on Hip Hop Fundamentalz courtesy of DJ Prizmatik.
- I started podcasting The Dope Spot on www.podomatic.com in the spring of 2005 under the direction of DJ Prizmatik.
- The Dope Spot began syndication on www.mixlawax.com courtesy of Lord Faz.
- Call Signal co-hosted The Dope Spot in the spring of 2005.
- Students of DJ Brace; Mista Banks and DJ Climax joined The Dope Spot in early 2006.
- I ended The Dope Spot in the spring of 2007 to settle into a house with my girlfriend and then get married.
- Kinetik took over and changed the name of Hip Hop 101 to The Joints!
- Kinetik initiated our reunion and in the fall of 2008 we combined The Dope Spot and The Joints! to create The Dope Joints! Hip Hop Mixshow. Kinetik also unearthed DJ Stress around this time.
- The Dope Joints! Hip Hop Mixshow aired it's final episode on July 25th, 2012.
We had to end our run of college radio Hip Hop mixshow after 17 years due to many smaller reasons that all stemmed from one, and it waits for no man... TIME.
We didn't just come down to the show each week and freestyle it. We'd spend each week collecting and reviewing music so that only the dopest joints we came across would not only get played, but get played properly. This was easier at first when...
- we were just in school or only working part time
- getting serviced meant the label or distributor had to have bank enough to not only produce enough vinyl to give some away but that they'd actually mail it to your crib (imagine how many broke willy zero record sale fakers would get weeded out if we had to go back to this system!)
- There was a community of Hip Hop Mixshows that included legends that inspired if not scared you to do your best
The end of the radio show isn't the end of the podcast. We'll post mixes when we can but nowhere near as regularly as we have been. You would've already realized that something was up since we haven't been podcasting weekly since last year.
Ever since this "Hip Hop is dead" bullshit mentality surfaced I've been countering it with "Hip Hop didn't die, you got lazy!" I feel there's never been as much good Hip Hop out there as there is today, tomorrow there'll be even more and the next day even more. In the same way there's also more bad Hip Hop out there than ever before. It takes real effort to not only find the gems in the crates but to even know what crates to look in. Hip Hop needs torch bearers. Please do what you can to promote Hip Hop music that is made in the essence; creative, positive, talented, original and dope sounding.
Kinetik's "Psychedelic Soul Shack" will continue Saturdays 11 PM to midnight central on UMFM CJUM 101.5 FM in Winnipeg, MTS Cable Channel 718 in Manitoba and online at www.umfm.com/listenonline. Stay up on it at http://www.mixcloud.com/psychedelicsoulshack/. Stay up on his grisly discoveries at http://thegrislydiscovery.blogspot.ca/. DJ Stress is talking about starting and Old School Hip Hop show on UMFM next year. Radio is part of Rukus45's genes. Bundown Sound System has taken over our Wednesday 10 PM to Midnight central time slot with their fuelGOOD Radio. Who knows what the future holds?
I'm going to end this blurb with a list of thank you's that I can conveniently add to over time as I realize who I forgot. If you feel you should be on the list and I missed you, I apologize.
ABOVE ALL THE BIGGEST THANKS GO OUT TO THE FANS AND LISTENERS OVER THE YEARS, I say this often "we do this for y'all." The most satisfaction I get out of doing the show is when heads hit me up to thank me or to talk about the music we play. It makes the hustle worthwhile.
The second biggest thanks goes out to the artists who's music we played. The quality of the music you created forced us to find ways to share it because it was too good to keep it to ourselves and quite literally we couldn't have done it without you.

Ever since MCA passed away I've had my iPod loaded up with Beastie Boys both in mourning and in preparation for this episode. As much as their music meant to me I had never listened to their entire discography in that fashion. So much of their music got major play from me over the years; from my first boom-box, my first walkman, my first car stereo and now on the turntables. Music that I listened to a lot tends to have memories attached to it. While I was jamming all these Beastie Boys tracks I was on the sweetest trip down memory lane recalling good times; parties, skateboarding, school, girls and friends.
I like to think the mid-80s to the mid-90s was a special time. In my case it was a time where a dude my age's formative years were coinciding with great music. It was a crossroads where different cultures and scenes were coming into their own in my city (this was probably further along elsewhere). Young people suddenly had a lot of options when it came to style, hang-outs, activities and music. Remembering back to those years I can't think of a more appropriate sonic backdrop to my experiences then The Beastie Boys. Even with all these cultures and scenes moving off in their own directions, perhaps one thing that everyone could agree on was how awesome the latest Beastie Boys record was.
Thank you to The Beastie Boys, your catalog and accomplishments are truly impressive! From bringing sounds together to create music to bringing people together to create peace. You've given us so much already, we sincerely hope you continue on.
Special thanks to 007, Partridge and Rukus45 for visiting this night.
