GOOD NEWS GANG!

I am going back (back) to Cali (Cali) next month to do MAKE STUFF and MAKE STUFF HAPPEN… and no trip out that way would be complete without a visit to the world famous ISOTOPE COMICS LOUNGE, around the nucleus of which I had loads of adventures last year. So this year we’re upping the drama and having a

FREE LIVE RAP SHOW!

James Sime, take the mike!

Cue this up in another window: ATD29

Straight from the boroughs of East London comes AKIRA THE DON – legendary rapper, producer, cartoonist, internet personality, sbwriel speaker, facial hair sporter and True Elemental Force of Good.

The Isotope is proud to get to kick off our 2013 event schedule year with a live show on our “world’s tallest stage” with this human ball of amazingly magical energy. Following in the grand tradition of the one and only MC Chris @ Isotope, Japan’s Pine*AM @ Isotope, the unsober Uke Apocalypse @ Isotope and Dame Darcy @ Isotope, our intimate concert series shows are always free of charge, packed to the gills, and only thrown when we really, really mean it. Could there be a more exciting follow-up to those amazing international acts than the amazingAKIRA THE DON?

Those of you who joined us for MorrisonCon in Las Vegas already know why Akira was Mister

Grant Morrison’s single most requested convention demand. And wecannot wait to get to introduce the rest of you to him!

 

But is San Francisco ready for The Man Who Cannot Be Contained?!

The epic last time Akira was in SF known around these parts as “the best weekend with the worst hangover of my life” in which The Don recorded an entire new album out of a briefcase, we were lucky enough to join him on the craziestBay To Breakers ever experienced (topped off with Akira performing superhuman stunts and literally saving a girl’s life), and ended the three day bender of biblical proportions off by blowing the doors off the Isotope filming a music video with E-40’s enigmatic tea-and-Ferrari-loving scion Issue.

Akira is on an Exaltation Mission and he cannot be contained! Isotope’s mixologist maestro Kirsten Baldock will be serving up a bevy of bevvys, including the legendary MorrisonCon inspired Transcendence. And DJ Bearzbub will be bringing the pre-show bodyrock on the wheels of steel. Truly SF, are you ready.forthis?

SURPRISE!

It’s ATD29!

The brand new action packed mixtape from ME, your friendly neighbourhood Don! 13 brilliant new songs! On which you’ll mostly find me spitting scriptures over production by OTHER PEOPLE THAN MYSELF (apart from a couple of white hot ATD productions) including Mike Will Made It, Young Chop, Boyz Noise, Erol Alkan, Blockhead and many more, about 60% of which were suggested by YOU!

So thank YOU for your great ideas!

There are also a fistful of star turn guest vocal appearances from the UK’s biggest rap star Big Narstie and grime legend Footsie! AND! A very special guest appearance from cover star and BRAND NEW HUMAN Hercules Jan Narkiewicz!

ATD29 was written and recorded a few weeks back in the space of 29 hours after I packed off my girl and our brand new baby boy to auntie Nonny’s and had a slab of hash delivered by Royal Mail. PRAISE BE UNTO THE POSTMEN.

Click here to download the MP3 bundle and FLAC, and order the CD and luxury ART PRINT!

We’re having a special live DONCAST on Youtube tonight at 8pm UK time, so come on down and celebrate with us! It’s a good day! The pedo whisperer has been forced out of popedom, as predicted by my new single, One More Pope To Go! Joy to the future!

Anyway! I hope you enjoy this fine release! Hold tight for the first video from the project in a few hours. And let me know what other beats you’d like to hear me on in the future!

PAX!
