Ive just finished a new From The Cradle To The Rave song with guest vocals from none other than the Dead Subverts (see didnt I tell you this would happen)! Its called 'Death Throes' and is about the abolition of capital punishment. I dont hold much faith in the human species but the fact that we, as a society, allow death to be dealt to our own kind and yet think of ourselves as civilized completely sickens me. Its a hypocritical notion to condemn one of murder and then punish him/her with the same act. Humans do bad things, justice should be carried out, but a system which has 1) never been proven to deter crime and 2) been proven to be wrong in so many cases and yet is completely irrevokable, cannot be part of that process. We are not a civilized society while we allow murder to be sentenced.

Its been a while since I last posted which means its a blog update frenzy tonight! So first things first, most notable night of rump shakin blast beats in the past month was the Million Dan show in Glasgow @ the V club. If you dont know who Million Dan is off the bat you're seriously missing out... A legend in his own right hes been running tings for years in jungle/ragga/hip hop crew the Demon Boyz and as a solo artist working with the likes of The Freestylers and the man Jay Large to name a few, his debut solo album is one of my favourite hip hop LPs of all time so check that out quicksmart!!
