Bay Area emcee Kirby Dominant and Canadian producer Factor have both been at it for a decade plus, putting out consistent quality material on their respective fronts. In 2001, they found common ground, began recording together under the moniker Paranoid Castle and eventually released their debut collaboration One Way Ticket on Side Road Records in 2004. By the age of 17 Kirby had already been selling dope, locked up and shot.

He was able to drastically shift gears and move forward at UC Berkeley, where he spent his financial aid checks on making an album. A string of successful releases on Rapitalism Records along with his Dominant Mammals collabo with Moka Only brought Kirby to the forefront of west coast indie rap and drew praise from the likes of URB Magazine and the San Francisco Guardian. Factor has produced full-lengths for a who’s who of underground talent ranging from Awol One to Moka Only to Gregory Pepper in addition to his own lush, melodic solo endeavors. His larger-than-life palette incorporates bone-shattering drums spliced with meticulous samples and live instrumentation. From the virtual obscurity of Saskatoon to sought-after super-producer status, Factor’s travels have included working and touring alongside Kool Keith, Tha Liks, Sadat X, Aesop Rock and Buck 65.

Dear friends and fam,

The good people at Complex magazine are now streaming all of  "Xmas Jollies 2011" -- my annual CD compilation of holiday tunes -- on their website.  I'd be over the moon in any case, but they've enhanced my presentation by giving every song its own page, featuring a wonderful photo of the performer and "liner notes" by yours truly.  A thousand thanks to Complex's Rob Kenner and his crew.  As far as I'm concerned, Christmas came today.

Love,
Bill

Soulcrate Music recently released a new video for their song "Click Click Follow Follow".

The song takes a clever, sarcastic look at the use of social networking and technology in average, everyday life. From photos of your lunch to what is basically a dating profile, the Internet makes almost any information about you readily available.
