For those who don't know ITCH FM the legendary radio show in the UK has now relaunched with a host of new DJ's from likes of DJ Myme, Thad Boogie, DJ Matman and DJ Philly (Trackside Burnerz) to name a few. The best thing about this is that you can go to www.Itch.Fm and listen to the show anywhwre in the world as man's has gone digital on this ting innt! And while we're on the subject of the mighty Itch FM props to my man DJ Myme for featuring part of my July Mix on his show!!!! It's a pretty damn good feeling knowing that I've featured in some way on ITCH FM as I remeber hearing the old shows by Disorda and Jabba Tha Kut and thinking "Bruv....I need to hear it live not just on a dubbed cassette each month!" Make sure you lock in and check the station as it's already growing and will only continue to do so!!!

DJ Madhandz - Catch Up On Shit!!!!

So I've been MIA from my blog during July for the simple reason I've been busy as shit working on music so haven't had the time to post much. Needless to say though below are a few of the tracks that have dropped since my last update so feel free to share them or if available download and enjoy!!!

Magna Carta Vinyl

Good vibes today as I had my copy of Melanin9's "Magna Carta" album turn up in the post. What's so special about that I hear you say?'s the vinyl version with added bonus instrumentals on it which is always a good thing. Secondly, and a pretty big thing from me, it's my first time appearing on vinyl. I feature on the tracks "Organized Democracy" and "Marble". 

To date this is pretty much my crowning achievement in my DJ career and hope it's the first of many to come.

Respect goes out to Melanin9 for letting me part of this truly great album and Tony Mahoney for producing both tracks

Skratchaholiks Features and Tings!!

To quote the late great Biggie Smalls "If you don't know now you know..."The Skratchaholiks are the collective of DJ's that I'm proud to be part of and as you can appreciate who I'll support here of my blog so below are a couple of new bits n pieces from the man like DJ TMB & DJ TrickalomeYou can follow the Skratchaholiks on Twitter: @Skratchaholiks

Features April

Below are a few new features I've done for people. If the albums can be bought and you want the artists to keep making music show support and get your pounds, dollars, yen or euros out and buy them!!!

The White Shadow Of Norway - Nitemare Concert

For those who don't know the man White Shadow has another album out right now that can be purchased from iTunes so don't sleep on this!!! As you may or may not know I've been in contact with the man himself for a good few years now (since Untouchable dropped in fact) and can safely say the man's music get's better as time goes on. The album features a whole heap of acts both know and unknown (another reason why I rate him highly is because he respects upcoming and lesser known artist's and shows them love by getting them to feature on his albums...other underground heads could learn a lot from him!) Check the videos below as the whole album is on YouTube and make sure you support and buy htis one as you won't be disappointed!!! iTunes

Champions Of Nature - C.O.N Mix CD

Now as you should know by now I'm from the UK, Blighty, Great Britain what ever you want to call this island so naturally I'm going to support the homegrown artists and talent we have.

This CD here I've been after for a good 8 years or so and could never find it or it was always sold out but due to the good man Disorda over at Suspect Packages
I've finally got it in my collection!!

(Check the envelope it turned up in!! Pretty good feeling seeing that on the back I can tell you!)

Said CD is Champions Of Natute - C.O.N mixed by DJ IQ. And if you know who they are you can see why I'm pretty happy right about now!!

Champions Of Nature we're a crew of UK artists who had worked with each other on separate musical endeavours but formed like Voltron to form a UK supergroup consisting of:

Lewis Parker
Supa. T
L. Dolo

So basically a group of some of the best lyricists the UK has to offer and thank god they did. Obviously most will know Lewis Parker and Jehst but mans like Profound and Supa T are UK legends in there own right in my eyes.

The CD is a mix of the few tracks they released which you could get on separate records of which I have the "Salsa Smurf" and "F...Off EP" and the only remaining 12" is the C.O.N Artists Vol. 1 which I shall track down at some point. On a side note the track "Easter Island" isn't on here which isn't a bad thing but is my favourite track from the group (again that 12" isn't in my collection but tracking a copy is proving tricky and I know its worth the £30+ it sells for when it comes up on eBay and Discogs)

So enough of the waffling by myself and to sum it up in a word....HEAVY

You have right here a true UK Hip Hop heads collector piece and I for one am a very happy DJ right now.

I hope it's this year.....

So there seems to be a pretty good line up of upcoming music this year still and that can only be a good thing for hip hop heads the world over.

I heard and saw a rumour that Roc Marciano I'd doing a full length album with production handled through out by the Arch if you've never heard an Arch Druids beat 1.) What??? 2.) you don't own "Reloaded" from Roc Marciano as you'd already know about "Emeralds" and other tracks like "Poltergeist".

Any way I'll keep my ear and eyes out for anything else I can think of music wise and dare say they'll be some new isht for myself getting released soon so I'll upload that and let you good people hear it all.

I'm away for a couple of days now so ill get to posting when I'm back next week.


DJ Madhandz


Pictures speak a thousand words....

7 G.E.M.S. - Golden Era Music Sciences

Another album that's definitely going to be added to the collection will be the upcoming joint effort between Tragic Allies & Tragedy Khadafi as the group 7 G.E.M.S titled "Golden Era Music Sciences" with all production handled by Purpose (he produced some real heavy boom bap goodness on the Purpose & Confidence album!).

The album will feature appearances from Roc Marciano (how dope is going to be to hear Tragedy & Marciano on a Purpose beat together), Killah Priest and Shabaam Shadeeq so you know we're talking a lyrically solid offering here.

The single which is doing the rounds at the moment titled "Without You" is well worth checking to get a vibe for how the group sounds and can be bought on iTunes and the video is obviously on YouTube.

Its good to see so many dope artists joining forces to make albums as its never a bad thing when thin word....CZARFACE!!!!

Tracklist for the album below:

1) King Asiatic Allah (Intro)
2) Without You
3) Dem Get Murda
4) No Good
5) I Know Im Reckless
6) Presume The Unpredictable feat. Roc Marciano
7) Gems
8) Men of Honor feat. Relentless
9) Time To Ponder
10) The Annointed
11) Vantage Point
12) Beatbox (Interlude)
13) Wild Militants
14) Foul Thesis feat. Shabaam Sahdeeq
15) Verge of Defeat feat. k!llah Priest
16) Aura Snatchers (remix)

Wu Wednesday in vinyl form

So a lot of people go on twitter/instagram/Facebook and hash tag #wuwednesdays so guess what???

I did the same and thought why not share my ever increasing vinyl collection with you good people

Quasimoto - Yessir Whatever!

Quasimoto, the reclusive alter-ego of Oxnard, California producer/emcee Madlib has not released an album since 2005's The Further Adventures Of Lord Quas. According to Stones Throw Records, Quas was birthed on Madlib's early underground beat tapes, the persona was never intended for the public. However, as word spread around the California beat and deejay community, the helium-voiced, provocative emcee who looped up his own beats became a cult-followed sensation, and one of Madlib's most successful and championed offshoots.

Stones Throw announced this week that Quasimoto's third release is finalizing for a June 18 release. Yessir Whatever is a 12-track collection of Quasimoto songs recorded over the last 12 years, following Quas' acclaimed debut, The Unseen. The collection features some previously released material, from rare and out-of-print vinyl, while others have never been previously heard. The album is available digitally, on CD, and on LP vinyl with a bonus 7" record.

You can preorder the album on vinyl from and its worth it if your a collector of all things Quas/Madlib/Stones Throw (As I am and have already done)

It's a shame there's only 2 new tracks on the album that haven't been heard by myself but I'll still give it plenty of spins because its Lord Quas and Lord Quas is the shit!!!!


01. Broad Factor
02. Seasons Change
03. The Front
04. Youngblood
05. Astronaut
06. Planned Attack
07. Brothers Can’t See Me
08. Catchin’ the Vibe
09. Am I Confused?
10 Sparkdala
11. Green Power
12. LAX to JFK

I'm happy to see Sparkdala on there as my copy of the DJ Design 12" that it featured on has since gone walkabout so I'll be glad to have that song back in my collection.

April Videos Of Choice

Going to Start doing a post once a month of videos I like from the world of Underground Hip Hop. If you like music featured in them do the artist a favour and BUY THE MUSIC!!

DJ Madhandz - 7:30AM Cuts

The first scratch video I have done in ages, it was recorded at 7:30am (clever title eh?) so don't hate that it's not as tight as I'd like (we've all been there right? If you know what I mean)

Cappo & Nappa - Red Hot

"Cappo & Nappa have collaborated on a new album called "Rebelbase" which is produced entirely by Nappa of Phi-Life-Cypher, and will be released on KingUnderground Records. "Red Hot" is the first single from the album and you can download it here for free right now! You can also head over to the KingUnderground site to cop the single on limited edition red wax, limited to 100 copies world wide!"First up the vinyl will be in the collection end of! (yes I keep checking King Underground daily!)Secondly you can download the track from the Dephect website.

As always Cappo brings the heavy rhymes and Nappa brings the heavy beats!! This album will be another slice of quality to add to the collection.

Spit Gemz - Invisible Chess f. Vinnie Paz (prod. One-Take)

Spit Gemz' debut album "FVCK THE RADIO" is officially here February 25th 2013. To celebrate the release, Gemz offers up one of the standout records on the project with the God Of The Serengeti himself. Vinnie Paz is undoubtedly one of the biggest forces and an ambassador for hardcore Hip Hop, Spit Gemz is one of the brightest and lyrically gifted young stars in the genre. Gemz' fan-base has been asking for this track for sometime now, and the two finally link up for one hell of a 1-2 monstrous combo.

Czarface Vinyl

I now have the Czarface album on vinyl and in my collection! After the last week or so listening to the album in my headphones I'm more than happy that its in the crates.

The artwork looks even better on the record sleeve but what tops that is the 22" x 22" poster that came free with the vinyl copy of the album. That will be getting framed and hung in the lab as its to good a piece of art not to.

The vinyl its self is quite heavy weight and of high quality so no skips or warped records which is always a bonus.

I must say a big thank you to Rarekind Records once again for the speedy and prompt delivery of my order. If you want a good online store to visit check them out or if your in the UK and near Brighton pop in and see the shop itself.

Any way, I'm off to see if its possible to mix this album together as a kind of promo mix for myself to listen to.

Tha Soloist - Share My Dreams (Tracks From 2000 - 2009)

As you might have guessed by now I don't only collaborate a lot with Tha Soloist but first and foremost I'm a fan of the man's music. When I first joined Redphone Records I spoke to him the most and he helped me make sure I was on top of my game as DJ and gave me advice on a lot of things not just music wise but dropping knowledge on me of which I have nothing but respect for.Here's his latest offering, a collection of unreleased material from 2000-2009 titled "Share My Dreams"Now normally I'd break it down track by track with an album/mix tape etc but I decided to switch it up on this one and let the man himself do just that:

1. Crash & Burn - I can't remember when I wrote this one (just like most of these tracks on here) The voice I sampled was the hook lol. One thing that sticks out is the fact that I kept the same rhyme pattern going for the last verse. This is pretty deep. I like this track.

2. Dance With The Devil (Remix) - I just used Tech's beat and wrote my own story to it. It's a pretty solid story about a boy that was abused by his father. The only thing I regret is trying to sound like Tech on it lol. My boy told me the Rihanna line was pretty weak but oh well. I actually had this up on YouTube a few years back. The video was made up of different pictures that went along with the story. There's a couple of mistakes in there if you really listen.

3. Music For Life (Remix) - This track was written to another beat way before I recorded it to this Hi-Tek instrumental. I believe I used a beat by Kno. I hate it when I say, "air flow" lol I compare music to a female. I know it's been done before but f*ck it!

4. His Truth - This track was actually produced by my nephew when he was MAD young! I think he did a pretty dope job…This was my attempt at writing and sounding like Lupe haha! It tells the story from 3 different points of view…For war, against war and neutral. It's deep. Check it.

5. Hopeless - I DON'T KNOW WHY this damn track goes up and down in volume…I made this beat after hearing Dilla for the first time. No samples. That's me saying "Yeah" in the background. And I'm singing on the hook too lol. I could dig this.

6. I Know - MY MOM LOVES THIS ONE haha! It's about an american soldier and an iraqi soldier. They both write a letter to their wife. I used an accent for the last verse. lol The hook is one of those soldier chants or whatever you call 'em.

7. Jesus "Verses" Satan - I lowered my pitch for Satan's voice…I had my boy CRACKING UP on this one…We'd smoke and listen to this…I had it up on YouTube a while back and had EVERYONE commenting 'cause I asked them, "who won the battle?" I sampled an old cartoon. The one where the flea comes in and bothers the dog. Classic.

8. Last Man Standing - I sampled Giligan's Island for this beat. Wish I could've had great quality. I could picture Inspectah Deck rocking to this. I guess that's why I tried to sound like him during some of the rhymes lol…Guess who I sampled for the hook? By the way, this is like an I Am Legend story. Listen…

9. Love Conquerz All - A lot of people loved this track when I dropped it. but I panned my voice all the way to the right during the verses lol! I sampled a dope song by Devotchka…Check them out. Last verse is the same verse I spit on MISS U. You'll hear that one later…

10. Lyrical Mass - I tricked Posdnuos (De La Soul) into hearing this track on Twitter lol. This is some lyrical shit….He actually said it was dope. Maybe he was just being nice haha.

11. MISS U - I used the same exact sample for my track "Blood Sweat Tearz" feat. Madhandz, La Dog, D-6 and AV! I sampled Jay-Z for the hook. This sample is dope…It's from an Elvis track. Just lowered the pitch like crazy!

12. Music Is Everything - This one is OLD as HECK! You can hear the passion that I use all the time now. I think I recorded this on my Fostex. I love this track tho. No samples. Raw.

13. MUSIC - An old acapella. I memorized this one and just spit it. I think there's a beat in the background lol

14. One (Remix) I wrote this quickly. I just wanted to express sudden thought. Ghost would not be proud lol I tried to use his slang too hahahahah!

15. Share My Dream - I sampled a crazy baseline and just went in. I think it's a pretty deep track. It's like he's saying it's a wonderful world but in the video, Armstrong makes this crazy face like, "It's NOT wonderful." Tells a little of my story. Listen to this one. I love the horn I sampled. I chopped the shit out of all the sounds on this.

16. The Cycle - I apologize for this beat. It's like some House, Hip-Hop, Moby shit lol The lyrics ain't too bad. The hook is JUST TERRIBLE…wow hahaha. My uncle played the bass for me and I just sampled it.

17. The Window - I think this was when Drake came out LOL. Wow…I can't believe I chopped my voice on this. The verses are dope tho. My nephew loves this. It's all true.

18. Time - 2009! haha This is deep. I start off slow and then speed it up. I like this beat for some reason. I was inspired by Bob Dylan…the delays are TERRIBLE. Jesus. This track is over 5 min. long……….

19. Water Guns - This was like a premonition lol. The hook sounds like Crack Sinatra. I think this is the first beat I ever made with no samples in it. The drums sound mad real. I made the beat with a purple E-mu MP7. I bought it cuz I saw RZA had one in the Source Mag ads lol I was mad happy that I got the car to crash to the snare.

20. You're Da Man (Remix) - This was always one of my favorite Nas tracks. This is deep. No yelling just me speaking into the mic. i love the delays on this one. I was getting better at it lol

Hope you all enjoyed listening to my tracks from back in the day.
