Pyramid getting plugged

Maseo aka Plug 3 returns Sept 23.

We’re really excited for the return of this DJ/producer legend for a ne’er before seen back-to-school jammy jam! He rocked snotboxes galore on his last visit with a mix of classic and contemporary rap, funk, soul, house and disco so if you missed out, this is your chance to get down with the Maseo experience! If that weren’t ’nuff, we’ve also brought on our homey DJ HUNNICUTT into the mix to guarantee that this rumble cannot be clocked!

Advance tix are $10 & available at Kustom Kulture, Into The Music and The Urban Bakery. Door admission is $15.

Presented by Pyramid Cabaret, CJUM 101.5FM and Bundown.

Plug tune in

De La Soul’s Maseo to play Pyramid.
The cat’s finally out of the bag.

As mentioned in previous posts and Twitter blasts, we have been sitting on a show that we’ve been dying to announce and so without further ado, we are proud to announce that MASEO aka Plug 3 will be gracing the stage of the Pyramid on April 16.

He will be joined by QUADRATIK, JAY BOOGIE, OFIELD K, LUCIOUS and special guest LONNIE CE (THE LYTICS, Grippin’ Grain).

Advance tickets are $10 and will be available at The Urban Bakery (shout out to Kev!) and door admission is $15.

At the same time, don’t forget that DJ TAKTIKS will be our special guest at M*O*V*E this Saturday, April 9 at The Orbit Room! Taktiks has been holding down Toronto’s CKLN 88.1FM for a minute now with his Mixtape Massacre radio show. He’s a true music lover and he can always be found spinning at clubs, lounges and parties in the GTA. Last year, he played Bar Italia alongside Quadratik and left a lasting impression! Ofield will also be holding down Calculated Soul Live at Lobby On York, so you’ve got a double BUNDOWN flex this Saturday!

Studio54 is also fast approaching and will take place inside 6 Degrees Martini Bar & Wine Lounge on Good Thursday, April 21! We’ll be welcoming back our homey MAVRIK (Dangerous Goods Crew) on the decks that night, as well! Word is spreading and folks are anticipating a night of disco from the 70s to nu disco!

Finally, if you don’t already know about the RAEKWON show on Saturday, April 23 at the Pyramid, then we should inform you that the show will be opened by FILTHY ANIMALS, DJ CO-OP and our very own Boogz! Rae is touring to support the release of the latest Wu banger, Wu-Tang vs Shaolin, which you should cop immediately via your fave music source!

That’s it for now…see ya on the dancefloor!

P.S. A new addition to the BUNDOWN fam will be making his debut in the near future…;)

Bell tolls for Winnipeg

Rock The Bells Club Tour hits Pyramid.
RTB Club Tour (WPG) WEB CLR

Guerilla Union‘s massive hip hop tour has never reached city limits until now.

Rock The Bells‘s only Canadian dates this year are in the usual bigger markets: Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. For the first time ever, smaller markets like Saskatoon and Winnipeg will have a chance to experience the international touring festival with the Rock The Bells Club Tour, which arrives in Winnipeg on Friday, August 21 at Pyramid Cabaret.

The lineup consists of Slum Village, Slaughterhouse, Supernatural and Pete Rock. SV’s participation was in doubt after founding member Baatin‘s passing this past long weekend but the group confirmed that they will continue with their RTB dates and performed at the Vancouver (Aug 1) and Calgary (Aug 2) dates.

None of the confirmed acts have ever played in Winnipeg but two members of Slaughterhouse have: Royce Da 5’9 and Joe Budden. The supergroup is rounded out by Crooked I and Joell Ortiz. The group have the rap industry buzz locked as anticipation builds for their first album.

Supernatural has long been considered one of the strongest freestyle rappers in the industry and has been involved with RTB since 2004. His battles with Craig G and MC Juice are underground classics and he is bound to unleash some of that lyrical fire at the Pyramid.

Pete Rock really needs no introduction. He’s Pete Rock. Producer extraordinaire. DJ king. Rap icon. ’nuff said.

Tickets are 32.50 + agency fees and will be available at Ticketmaster outlets, Pyramid Cabaret, Into The Music, Music Trader and The Urban Bakery.

The Rock The Bells Club Tour is proudly brought to you by The Union, Ill Movements, UMFM and Bundown Sound System.
