Dub FX + Luka Lesson - THIS IS NOT A DRILL - feat. Woodnote
January 28, 2020
Dub Fx – Roots (2020) is out. Save trying to connect to the splurge below. Instead and with ref. to 'not a drill', zip through, and take 'Transmission' dubfx.com/roots/, something from the fresh-up Dub Fx album. A track for Feb. playlist A Ten Bag. Have a list of people who were kind enough and we talked about a song for 'first impressions'. Do a bunch on Charts and Maps up next.
<><>>Please note:—posts are completed and remain unchanged once, the next one is up. Thank you for visiting– -MJ [Mark] Truthscoop– —
Thanks Sam for the nod to Dub FX (and MC Vapour). Off out, when back, play the dub... lesson, and do my homework and an essay. Peace and... Back and saw Sam, who comments: He’s a one-man orchestra. Always talking about the planet and seeking positive change. An environmentalist and a bit of a hippy —in a good way. True wordsmith.
It’s 9.37 pm and would like to do an Ad for something/Quiz. Then plug into Dub and Liko. First impressions; meanings and messages are the focus. Lens. Questions. All Dat. Off to Advertise I go and with only Feb. Playlist allowed, should I play or… silence?
Skipped the voice bubble and "what's he/she saying"? Or, a quiz? Koffee comes forward to collect the 2020 Grammy reggae record thingy. Be 22.42 and got the Dub/Lesson to hear. Do it in sections and see how we go: Hear/stop/type/publish/carry on.
Haha, had a look and it's 5.55 mins, not expected. When Sam introduced me to Dub FX the other day planned to find a number and put it on the playlist. The concert he played was too long to include. Go look at what's new on FX YouTube? Nothing for a year. Earlier today and heads-up and presented YouTube selection is the Not Drill event. Thank God and Sam, bang fits a post to jettison the months of piddling 'bout.
Loski is on my mind and might best do a couple of posts before dialing into the Everest in music and —Drill. With '67' and see-who there's Loski and 'Spartans' are able to make the music they want to make and love most.
Come to that time. When music technology and production have converged in the delivery of an avalanche. Fresh-funky, who knows what, and where the adventure. A polite to US takeOVER.
With Grime, it is something new. The first UK movement and such since Jungle or UK Garage. While words were integral it was a made-to-rave and club, so instrumental based.
Wiley says Jungle was "the best of times" and the "purity", aka underground/hardcore. In the UK, Drum and Bass remain the primary accompaniment and rites of passage through the 16-18 years (-ish).
Drugs. Add loud music and early sexual endeavours. Especially galvanising for young boys, the girls have been catching up. M'guess-you-what through anecdotal research suggests, 70% into DnB and them circa.16-year-olds. Until the last year or so.
The transfer to another 'club' is underway. The same percentage and 2020 but on different grooves. Getting all-over Grime, Drill and UK Hip-Hop with its derivatives and replications.
Forty percent of the remaining and holding back are the faithful and exclusive DnB heads. While the rest "not into music" [more common than ever]. Or, taking the room and blessings in 2020 and eclectic freedom to like any XYZ. Raise no eyebrows and nothing, seems too unusual.
There's a whole lot more to write and goin' on a break for now.
Because Loski is on my mind. Be a whole, whole lot better if that came out my lips, or 'least in mind, attending to God: On Loski.
Going 'not guilty' on a gun found in a cab he traveled in, would if convicted could get 15 years. A gun found from two searches? Wouldn't you expect to look under the passenger seat the first time? And how did the police know he was in the cab? Or what was the suspected offense by the driver or vehicle, to warrant pulling over?
Exhibit/example of weapon:
DNA on a sock? Hear not, so far. Are there challenges to secure a conviction and need to amp up the 'circumstantials'. Media on his phone involving firearms, The assumptions amp up and he's one:
"...active and gang'd up, take a gun and go shooting merchant". Taking the best tool for the job eh? A cab fits like a brick and traceable but o' course, who was following?
Reminiscent of patsies caught up and killed by authorities. Conned into a false flag and "neutralized". Could the gun be a plant and aim was for Loski to die or maimed in a shoot out?
A kitchen knife and a bus would be safer, but no, he goes for a gun. Gun-enough to get someone a long stretch if caught. While needing to get as close to the target as a knife attack to be effective.
"As he raps" imagine the line, the prosecution begging the jury, do a 2 + 2 and plead cause and correlation.
Not a concern for social justice warriors or interest to journalists. No social commentary and race-centric political types. Don't know what is happening or it or don't care, to care. That and "keep ya head down" wombat thinking. What the destruction and loss of freedom to be. Because to write and read what we like outside the Hate Law's reasonable scope. Instead.... well, next-up, Conspiracy in charts and maps.
Tell you who's bubbling under it's 008. "It's Dee, Jack... Dee. [Nb. the refrain, and not go scooting off-track and 'John Dee' ballistic].
I have to believe some are trying to be double-agents. Please, God, I hope so. Agents in the voluntary promotion of the lies: Legalities and persecution stopping Jack and us all, from being adults. Again, on to a radical interpretation on 'all the animals and us'. The wolves over the sheep say; All you-animals... and us.
Not for good. Not settled what'll be. Not what God wants. Reminds of my early to mid 90s get-togethers with Donald Reeves. The '[A] maverick priest. Writer. Broadcaster. Peace builder. Generally nuisance. On self. 'A visionary with Attitude' says —our Jack Dee.
Extreme? Welcome to Truthscoop and all gravy as Owen Benjamin tells the 'bears' and visitors.
Con. Top Twenty and Owen's in with a bullet. Alright, in with goats milk and some Bach. [Insider 'Bears' talk and his broadcasts]. We know O. So yeah, Owen brings gifts. If you have to go through the upset phase and inaccuracy. Owen is firm but friendly.
Chart-topper is 'Cockney Rebel's Come up and make me Smile' straight into the top slot for January. Should get an Emmy for his comparing act. A surreal three-hour horror or Comedy Great.
Ricky asks a question I am happy to try answering.
Runner-up is Laurence Fox. And here's two for the price of one and an interview. Benjamin and Rosie. Twenty people shaking the movers to come.
Three thoughts on Loski and seek 'unction' to 'put it out there'.
What might be the motive and means :
1) Caught in a compulsion for acts of lone violence, the UK rapper must be under some powers. 2) Nos. 1 in the traditional Hip-Hop field is Drake. Who else has he got as crazed and jiggy over? The man got it. I got it. [Post to come...]. 3) Loski represents the voices and music maestro's living in social housing. Tens and tens of thousands who risk crime to eat. Cannabis or crack etc. sales.
Leaves an inconvenient truth: The new rasta (74-84) and punk (76-78) and post-punk (78-84). From summer 1976 and 100 months... [Hold-ya-horses... Not now. Post needs a realignment on the music, words, and proclamation to do.]
The inconvenient? "The Ramones came to town" the young people cry. "Out with old in with "don't know" but going Drill 'n Grime directions.
Began in 77. Like this, the second bombardment. Extra handicap, Joey bunged up and snotty. On the handout, given out at..??
[ Well, not unsurprising and the intensity, now I've looked TIME TO USE FOOTNOTES. Makes for this "lucky lad's" appreciation, and on the back of the handout. The last best three months of UK music until Sept. to Dec. 2019.

Fits with the above and Dubwise, FX wise, Luka and Woodnote wise. Ramones-wise.
Plumbing the Harlem Spartans and a post on Money and Violence is a proper challenge.
A rapper, here-me. In a booth, or on a set or stage, with no one to share, let alone battle. Not fussed about read-me-read-me... Although, from a cumulative perspective; Scoop up or invite a stomping. Not a healthy strategy to "Runaway, Run...".
Truthscoop? "It ain't Darts in the 70s". Kind of topics and talk get bans and somewhat makes sense, why the wilderness.
Harlem Spartans and like, know what's happening. Nothing to lose in their minds, from responding, as they do. In other words, some of their behaviours are about provocation. The police and authorities garner the media to support it. On the "we don't negotiate with terrorists and hostage-takers" line.
So Engagement-With = Compromise/the claim. Implies condoning gang-life. Hence the shut-down. Of course, much more and me-on.
a. The conspiracies with Jack or whatever cut, after Jack, had a go. Why, would that be, one wonders? b. Brother, what you don't get, right... or it's a neat exaggeration to fool the foolish-already. Fools who got a grip are never mocked while watching a 'joke' like this c. They believed that the plane... So far holds to an observation found in half the pop. Go on...
Joke about the chumps who "believe" a military missile', not a plane, hit the Pentagon. Not your regular joke. We're not talking about the comic lighthouses and Steve Hughes and the late Bill Hicks. 'Naughty boys.'
MANDY: Right, my lad. What have you been up to? BRIAN: Nothing, Mum. Um— MANDY: Come on. Out with it. BRIAN: Well, they think I'm the Messiah, Mum.smack MANDY: Now, what have you been telling them? BRIAN: Nothing! I only--...
Jack's got the mic and getting dry. Bringing us the low and down, on oh-you-suckers, 'we' decline to admit are half the pop.
Thank you though, it's dynamite and light. All publ., is good publ. anything 9/11 and myths, bears repeating.
Hear then kiss teeth in disgust at us. Thinking Ambush as he comes with a sermon. [Off Jan. Playlist on to Feb. A month and Play that funky music * **** boy* or, stop the music.] As for Ambush, beaten by Mitch, by a nose. Long-drawn out multi-replays for consideration and judgment.
In a clash, there's a winner.
Back to our information education.
Jack: How do you account... [cont.] Instead of any saying what sane person would've said: "Oh shit". [Crowd energized and relieved for a chance to laugh. Been a while, not a ripple?] Or, is that a 'demonise'/energised, more like??
Oh, you are one clever Trev. Floored. Where are the David Ray Griffin books, I must email him and explain? Jack's debunked us.
Bye Truthscoop, it's over, Jack cooked the lie about, the alleged lies. And I'm his butt.
No wait, our boy's countering with a dose of paranoia. Presents all we'd need to know and how unprepared to face the cameras. The Radio commissioners and staff must have found it so hard to get the right kind of flakey ones.
On dialysis in 2001, so dead by the alleged May 2011, killing of Osama Bin Laden. The deaths of Osama bin Laden is the appropriate title. Well, our man in the trenches faces 008 Jack DEE and gives him the clobber verse.
Killed Osama 2011, the same time as and some Pope-thing. The Gervasio-ism: "Just a joke", fits here. Is Dee serious? Couldn't he even take on a lightweight credible claim? No, the research was through the only 'Pentagon 9/11' debate and Ryan Dawson's position. Can you imagine what philosophical and moral gymnastics Jack and whoever are into? Listening to Dawson and detractors. Not something I've done or will, but know what's happening 9/11.
The grieving of the Holy Spirit. [Jack's into Jesus].
Search: 'Pope beautified same week Osama bin laden videos' and the heavyweights are on it. A year ago one of two unexplained 'accidents' caused two seal teams to come down. The second one wasn't considered a coincidence because they couldn't square that JACK. Nor can you.
That was more or less what the word coincidence was invented for is the retort to the Con. Theorist. Yeah, yeah, it's the way ya tell 'em. Way of a new series and a generous budget.
The man's acting Asleep, and Woke. While awake Bill has a prophetic word to share on What Are You Reading for?
Thanks though. Chuffed but disturbed how the reading is so.... "last century". The last lot-before the understanding and promotion of 'youth'. The post-war pre-60s. Their passion was Jazz —and poetry/short stories/essays/novels.
A few words on the playlist connected to the post is a must.
[ALL IN ALL -- offline from 8 -11 am. Other things dependent, might have an hour to ball in the net and blow the whistle.]
First, on the way to a proper post in yonks.
For Chris and Barry.

31/1: Wrote; Could the gun be a plant and aim were for Loski to die or maimed in a shoot out?
To make any sense would add:
Got tangled and the potential deceptions. Loski's took the gun out or it's planted with or without Uber (the cab comp) or employee complicit. We can only sketch possibilities but it's a mystery Loski would sit with such a gun in a cab. He knows people who 'carry' and willing. He knows the cops were all over him and other like-minded rappers. Books the cab in a false name? It does somewhat show, surprising exposure to vulnerability.
Loski is one of many Drill and Grime (?) rappers, in or coming out, in court or awaiting sentence and held on remand. Other 'Drill' (call 'it' 'that') –makers, are on trial, concerns me. The need to observe and comment is in the absence of any writing about Loski. A remarkable "not guilty" and release would be significant. All on the back of my take that UK Drill/Grime music is where the hip is, and will, hop. Say 'will...' the numbers who're into the sounds and vision are is increasing. UK Drill is poppin' and isn't 'the Spice Girls or Brit-pop'. Isn't FM friendly and 'crossing over' and "making it big". The 'it' and Drill isn't trying to be that. They're not stupid. The music isn't recognizable. Or much of the language. There's a discordant and demanding tone. Fingers pointing and at pains to disclose. To reveal life in what we're led to suppose is the "way it goes". The low-level cannabis selling employs people who otherwise, get sanctioned off benefits. Ex-offenders in a revolving door. To do anything other is more the 'richer' people's prerogative. Distant from, and yet the crimes are portrayed by the media and 'B' all else.
[to be cont. The new post is the first of the month's playlist and comments and charts].
PROGRESSION... this post. The NEW post will begin soon with not a jot or tit, once up. Do my writing here as an ongoing piece. Once I get at it, know through previous runs since November 2015, when Truthscoop leapt out the womb.
Koffee - Rapture ft. Govana / the next post. Over the weekend, all eyes FX Dub and the album. Find the song and cover a chuck on the playlist. Play/review/sermonize/reasoning and a proper look at someone I have five minutes of his set at a Polish pop fest. It was the ideal festy ever, think I've seen and the music top ranking. Sam commented he's 'orchestral' and sure got that swing. There be sunshine. It should be a hot weekend.
