Jim'll Fix It

If you bumped into me at any point in the last month I probably said to you - "have you heard Jimmy's - what if dilla poduced the blueprint" . Now if I didn't see you at any point last month or you don't know who Jimmy is this is what you need to know.

1) Jimmy is Jimmy Green. He's an Ipswich based High School Teacher, DJ, and Beatmaker (I know that he is amazing at atleast 2 of these things - I'm sure the kids at his school think he's cool too).

2) His "what if dilla produced the blueprint" (thats J Dilla)has been getting some serious heat on the blog scene including Kanye West blog (one of the original Blueprint producers) and the Rawkus Blog.

3) He's recently set up his own blog where you can get alot of his stuff. He writes on it alot so there's loads to see here.

I've been meaning to write this blog for a while as I've been listening to it alot. So sorry if this has come a little late.

As it has come late it means that I can also mention his latest Marvin Gaye mixtape which has just been put on his blog yesterday. I will be listening to it on the way to work tomorrow so can't give you a proper review, but to be honest I know that I will love it and i'm looking forward to going to work tomorrow.

We will (robot) rock you

In two minds whether this is a good thing or not. Looks like they held off on letting them use the pyramid stage though, maybe they're saving it for the sequel.

Following an incredible night with Mumford and Sons earlier in the year, we're pleased to announce that the Uprock Social Club will return on Saturday 3 October.

Our special guests will be the hugely talented and critically acclaimed trio The Invisible.

The band's debut LP has been picked for the 2009 Mercury Music Prize and received widespread praise, and their live show takes things to another level.

For newcomers to the Uprock Social's how it works. We put on a night, you come along and decide how much to pay.

Further details including support to be announced closer to the time.

We're so excited.
