IBMCs Worldwide Remixes EP vol 10 is the last chapter in the IBMCs Worldwide Remix Project*. The EP features production from DJ Grazzhoppa, TufKut, MG Gost & Crown.
The Quartzcrystalus remix is now available on a limited 7 inch (red vinyl) and is DJ Grazzhoppa’s 3rd remix for the overall project. Quartzcrysallus is an artist from Birmingham who made the original version (unreleased) with a South African producer.
The Joseph Blackwell remix came about thanks to TufKut (Beats in Progress/Breakin Bread) and even has a video version remixed from the original (thanks to Andy Higgs). Sadat-X from the legendary Brand Nubian, Mr Cream and Marquee (who you should remember from Lord Finesse’s Game Plan) feature – be sure to check the new material from Marquee who has an upcoming album “Femme Fatale” entirely produced by Lord Finesse, Venom and Kyo Itachi.
MG Gost did a great job with the Cannaholics remix, bringing in his fellow Hain Teny crew, Beatchukaz for the cuts and Dusan Kovacevic played rhodes. Finally, Crown of the mighty Grim Reaperz production crew came correct with his remix of Philly MC Sunwun’s track which features Cee-Knowledge from the world reknowned group Digable Planets.
*Although this is the final chapter, there are still 2 tracks we have left to drop in order to complete EP vol 6, so it’s not over yet!

We are extremely happy to present you with the second and third records in the IBMCs Worldwide Remixes Series. These pieces feature production from Muneshine/IceRocks (cream record) and Evil Ed/DJ Grazzhoppa (red record).
The Rodney P remix was released in 2013, produced by Muneshine in Toronto and features additional cuts from DJ Grazzhoppa. IceRocks’ remix of George Fields’ track (from his acclaimed Glad to Meet You LP) was released on the first day of this year and features additional verses from DXA members Doam Peace and DFace. Interestingly, IceRocks is the only American who produced a remix on the IBMCs Worldwide Remix Project, and this is the only track to feature only American artists – taking it back to New York City as we should.
The Evil Ed remix was originally released in 2010 and has kept heads steadily nodding with that timeless sound he is known for – via Concept a producer from New Zealand. Ed also laced the remix with additional cuts. DJ Grazzhoppa’s remix is of a track by UK artist Quartzcrystallus. The original version (unreleased) was produced by South African producer Critique Beats (not sure of the spelling) who gets a shout out on the track. This was the 3rd remix DJ Grazzhoppa produced for the IBMCs Worldwide Remix Project.
All the tracks are available for free download on bandcamp:

Of all 10 EPs in the IBMCs Worldwide Remix Project, Vol 8 is probably the jewel in the crown. With production from Canadian heavyweights Muneshine & Kick Back, New York’s finest IceRocks, and the UK’s producer du jour George Fields, we can be assured of bangers. George’s remix features cuts from UK legend Sir Beans OBE; Kick Back’s from fellow Shogunz member DJ Propo’88; and Muneshine’s remix was blessed by the masterful DJ Grazzhoppa. With emcees like Rodney P, Afu-Ra, Glad2Mecha, DXA and Language Arts, and artwork from EZPZ, this EP is a landmark achievement for IBMCs and for international Hip Hop cooperation generally. Special thanks again to all involved.

Luckily for us 2016 is not here anymore. Bad things happened in the world. In the world of IBMCs it stayed productive and many good things happened. Here are some of them.
George Fields’ inspiring double album ‘Beyond Realm’ (Under The Sun Records) exceeding all expectations (read review). Then the creation of the IBMCs digital label by MG Gost and 5 great subsequent releases from Innate & EP, Kespar, Hain Teny, IV The Polymath & I.deals, and we’re just getting warmed up!
More fresh Worldwide Remixes from Unda, Crimson, Klonazz, Tufkut, DJ Grazzhoppa & MG Gost,
Dope affiliate releases from MWP, DJ Veekash & Kidd Called Quest, the Village Live label and the continuation and expansion of events promotion with Rauwe School, Metaphyzik, Chop Shop and Urban Warfare (Netherlands/London/Canada),

2017 is here. As always Peace, Love, Unity & Having Fun
Massive thanks to all the supporters and creators & special shout to Mike Cole for all his moaning!
George Fields ft Glad2Mecha & DXA (IceRocks remix)
Starting the year off with a bang – the release of the IceRocks worldwide remix! This one has been in the vaults for a minute while preparations for the forthcoming 7 inch were underway, more on that shortly….
This remix really brings the IBMCs Worldwide Remix project full circle, literally- back to New York and is the only track from 40 with an American producer and where all the emcees are also American. It’s a strange time for America right now but it is with massive pride that we can present this collaboration to you & take it back to the place it all started.
The original version of the track can be found on George Fields – Glad to Meet You LP (Under the Sun, 2015) with prolific Arizona based emcee Glad2Mecha, and featuring a guest spot from Calamity Chris aka Manhattan Clams (one quarter of the DXA crew). It’s a highly prized record now, and not easy to get so it’s a huge blessing for George to collaborate on this.
For the remix, IceRocks took it a step further and got the other 2 members of the group on the track, Doam Peace, Dface. Icerocks has been building extensively over recent years, expanding his catalogue with Meyhem Lauren and others, crafting bangers with a trademark jazzy touch.
Special thanks goes to everyone involved in this, including EZPZ for his cover art. If you are really lucky you may even see a video for this remix this year! Peace & hope you enjoy the joint – stay safe in 2017.

2016 is not finished yet!! The Village Live label has gone from strength to strength with another surefire gem, featuring 2 of the UK’s greatest wordsmiths, M9 aka Melanin 9 (of Triple Darkness) and Skriblah Dan Gogh (formerly of Terra Firma), emcees whose styles match perfectly over a dark beat from Remulak. The other side you have a remix from Evil Ed which is also super heavy, the kind of simplicity and excellence expected from this man. Orange copies are sold out but I believe you can still snag a black copy of this 7 inch from http://www.villageliverecords.com/
Be sure to check the absolutely stunning video animation by StemFour, and the other releases on the Village Live label!
