Christopher Light Records shines the light on MC Breed, with the re-issue of MC's cult hit album "The Fharmacist".

The one and only legend, MC Breed was born in Flint, Michigan and proudly the first commercially successful rapper to come out of the Midwest. Initially involved with the rap group DFC, Breed released his first album “MC Breed & DFC” for the independent record label, SDEG Records on August 13, 1991. The album had great success peaking at #142 on the Billboard 200, #38 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and #3 on the Top Heatseekers.

“The Fharmacist” is the second to last album by MC Breed. It was released on May 8, 2001 for Fharmacy Recordings and featured production from MC Breed, Jazze Pha, The D.O.C., Dog, Corey Peterson and Gee Pierce. By the time this album was released, Breed's popularity had greatly decreased however the album was a critical success and spawned a number of tracks that have become underground classics in the North American Hip Hop scene.

The single "Let's Go To The Club" received massive airplay in his home town and the Detroit area, but nowhere near as popular in other key markets. It was his most successful single since 1991's "Ain't No Future in Yo Frontin'". On September 17, 2001, "Let's Go to the Club" broke the record for Detroit radio airplays and it is still in rotation to this day.

In late 2008 MC Breed was hospitalized and placed on life-support after he collapsed when his kidneys failed during a game of pickup basketball. On November 22nd, 2008, Breed reportedly died in his sleep while at a friend's home in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

This is the new revitalised and remasterred mix of the album out now on DJ Central Records and Christopher Light Records for the world.

    Take a walk on the wild side with the release of LadyDice and DL Down3r’s feverish new track, ‘Switch’ and watch the behind the scene's video they shot for " What if "

    The pair have been going from strength to strength, churning out material after kicking down the door with their SUGA BOOM BOOM tour and subsequent collaborations like the remarkable “Throw It Up”. These two appear to have an enduring artistic chemistry, and the latest product of their collaboration is a fresh sound which still showcases the style that made both Down3r and LadyDice famous in their own right. It’s good to see the pair incorporate some unexpected stylistic elements and keep pushing their craft to new heights. LadyDice injects her incredible vocal powers into all she does and this track is clear signs of greatness.

    Watch their behind the scene's video for " What If " out later in March.




    Switch is a trippy trip-hop/rap track that bends notes to the breaking point and laces in high tempo West Coast lyrical flow. It’s a little unconventional but effortlessly slick and a track that will be right at home on the Paris Night Club dance floors. A euro club banger is what we think.

    Both of these great artists have a huge fan bases and all the stuff they put out picks up steam until it’s too hot to handle. If Switch doesn’t keep you satisfied then check out their recent tracks, solo material, or revisit the classics using the links below.

    Celebrated Soul artist Isaac Roosevelt aka Sylvester Isaac aka Mr Funky P, teams up with Mannheim club mixer DjM; the result is a 70’s classic “Wake up Everybody” reborn as righteous as you could hope for.

    Isaac Roosevelt’s positive, contemporary soul has found a novel bedfellow in the house beats of club artist DjM. The match-up of these musicians, much loved in Mannheim, has recreated the title track of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes 1975 album, ‘Wake up everybody’, trading the restrained and slowly building soul/R&B for a more dynamic and modern house, with Roosevelt covering vocals.
    Released under German label United Sounds Records, December 2016, ‘Wake up Everybody’ has made some waves around northern Europe, reaching 76 on the Deutsche Dj Charts (DDJC) – which appears published on iTunes and Amazon – and been included on compilations such as Disco House 2k17, Studio 54 Comeback hits and It’s Deep House 2017; not to mention volume 12 of DJ Combo’s Promo-Only February Essential Selection.
    It’s hard to characterise the German club/house/techno scene compared to others around the world, except to say that it’s a unique beast at that’s been at the vanguard of vogue since Kraftwerk, if not before. DjM is a Mannheim mainstay, his club tracks and remixes appearing in at least 10 compilation albums, including Techno Harmony, Hard Techno Underground, Latin House Anthems and Respect the DJ 2k17.
    Of course it’s easy to expect quality releases from Isaac Roosevelt, who hit the European limelight in 2013 after appearing in The Voice of Germany, winning the VDM award for music video “Your Love Is”, voicing a Volkswagen TV spot and appearing alongside Pamela Falcon in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest Finals with the excellent “Lost in a Mad World”. His videos enjoy millions of views and he wowed Luxembourg and featured on international radio with “Ice Cream Baby”. He’s also no stranger to exciting artistic partnerships, singing with Thierry Mersch in the brass-laden and energetic ‘Shout it Out’ under Blue Pie Records
    Isaac’s naturalism and genuine joy in performance is disarming and contagious, and that comes through in the lyrics of the Blue Note’s prosocial 70’s anthem.
    This creative soul/club fusion shows local German musicians are as creative and captivating as ever. See more about these artists below:
