Short Synopsis: ARTISTOCATS MAGAZINE was invited by FCF rep Jenny Lee to cover this event. Personally we had a blast. We were disappointed N.E.R.D would not give any one a chance to Interviews. So we did not get any. Nor did we get good shots of the N.E.R.D performances as we were prohibited to film them. We did sneak in shots of half the performances but the cameras were next to the speakers which ruined the Audio. We apologize for this, but I guess they are just to big for our britches. But you know what? We don't give two fucks. The acts in the local scene and the vendors we interviewed throughout were much more interesting. We still had a blast at the event despite a couple of negative reviews scattered throughout the internet. At least the reviews were better then those on the MIAMI MUSIC FESTIVAL.

Featuring: CANIBUSM-EightyCynic & Chopp Devize.
Hosted by: Cynic -




Underlab Studios in conjunction with music partners Reverse Polarity Entertainment went to hang out with Canibus and M-eighty during their show @ Black Sheep Bar. Although a small incident killed any chances of getting interviews with Canibus or M-Eighty, we were still glad to catch the performance to give you a segment many try to imitate (you know your biting) but none can compare. M-Eighty announced that Underlab and Reverse affiliate Chopp Devize will be represented by Sound Records and he will be off to be featured in such albums as M-Eighty's "The Academy". His long awaited solo album, which is still in the works has already Hip Hop Greats as CANIBUS, ROCK (Heltah Skeltah), M-Eighty, Planet Asia. Also rumored to make appearences is Doodle Bug from Digable Planets and more. Keep your eye out for CHOPP DEVIZE. Definatley a lyrical threat to many South Florida MC's.




Canibus, is an American rapper. He is also known as "Can-I-Bus", "The Canibus Man", "Master of the Ceremony", and "Professor Emeritus Rip the Jacker." He is a part of supergroup The HRSMN along with: Killah Priest, Ras Kass, and Kurupt. He is best known for his complex lyricism that incorporates topics such as science and philosophy into poetic wordplay.

He began rhyming in the mid-'90s and by 1995 formed a duo called T.H.E.M. (The Heralds of Extreme Metaphors) with Atlanta rapper Webb (now called C.I., also known as Central Intelligence). While he was with Webb, he took part in a legendary cypher with the Wu Tang Clan family in Buffalo, New York, which earned him respect from the rap veterans. In 1996, T.H.E.M. split and Canibus teamed with businessman Charles Suitt. In 1997, Canibus started earning respect in the hip hop world after making numerous guest appearances with artists including The Lost Boyz, Common, Wyclef Jean, Kurupt, Ras Kass, Heltah Skeltah and The Firm.



M-Eighty - -

Born and raised in the Midwest, M-Eighty gained a great deal of notoriety for being an unbeatable force among the MC battlegrounds. Releasing three solo albums in his years prior to moving to California, including “The Expert Explosive,” Snakes in the Garden of Eighty,” & “The 11th Hour,” these immaculate testaments to rhyme provided M-Eighty with the opportunities to tour and perform with some of the greatest artists in the industry including the Wu-Tang Clan, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Rhymefest, Lil’ Flip, Twista, Jae Millz, Dead Prez, Blackalicious, and many more… Moving to California in 2004 to pursue law school in San Francisco, M-Eighty soon began undertaking A&R work for Dreddy Kruger’s New York based Think Differently Music Group/Wu-Tang making contributions to the labels “Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture” and Bronze Nazareth’s “The Great Migration” releases respectively.

About The Artists -

Stryke -Triple threats don't come so easy in the world of electronic dance music. Greg "Stryke" Chin is one of those rare anomalies in this industry. He's equal parts recording artist, DJ, and producer. The shy, sometimes introverted Stryke feels equally at home in all three. Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Stryke began his music career at an early age. He started playing classical piano at the age of four. Moving to Miami, Florida (where he still resides) when he was ten, Stryke became heavily involved in early electronic alternative scene. His love for Beethoven and Chopin were quickly joined by his new love for groups such as Depeche Mode and New Order (not to mention an unhealthy addiction to video games, which he still has to this very day). 

DJ Annalyze - toured extensively with Playboy's 50th Anniversary DJ Shortee. In 2006 she also toured with the west coast’s legendary DJ Quik & appeared on "The Jimmy Kimmel Show" backing B Real (of cypress hill) & Travis Barker (blink 182). To top off that year, she performed live at MTV studios Time square with the UK’s very own Lady Sovereign! Annalyze also holds a residency in Shanghai China at the infamous Club Bon Bon. Her stellar scratching & mixing style have earned her national sponsorships with companies like Pioneer & Stanton.

Dj Reid Speed - 
When Reid Speed began spinning records in 1996, she first generated curiosity as one of few female DJs at the time. However, she quickly earned respect for her talent in the highly competitive NYC scene. By the summer of 1997, she was working with rave promoters, Stuck on Earth Promotions and the following year as a member of the Direct Drive crew. At these events, she cut her teeth playing alongside the top names in the genre. 

DJ Jungle Boy 

Dj Michael Burian - Michael Burian belongs in his country to the best known Artists of the modern music scene. But his reputation has already spread far outside the Czech Republic. Michael is recognized worldwide not only as a great DJ, but also as Producer, Owner of a Label and a Promoter. He has been several times awarded in his country as the “Best DJ of the Year”. No other DJ from Czech Republic is driving so much attention of the crowd as Michael. He is filling clubs not only all around his country but also at Ibiza, USA, India and all across Europe. Out of the Music fields Michael has taken part in the Campaign against Communism in Czech Republic. Together with the former President Vaclav Havel, Michael has been encouraging people in his country to come to the Elections and make a further step on the way to Democracy. 

DJ Richard Devine - Richard Devine New album on Sublight records. Sublight is proud to present "Cautella" 14 new tracks on CD format from the imaginative master of digital sculpture Richard Devine. Featuring the collaborative work of Otto Von Schirach and remixing of Funkstorung Cautella delivers a surreal sonic assault of fictitious mechanical monsters bent and mutated into biological boogeymen. running time is 55 min Richard Devine Live July 20th at the Lincoln Center, New York City. working with Alarm Will Sound ( Orchestra) reconstructing Aphex Twins works. 

DJ Hi-Tek - Hi-Tek started his rap career with hip hop group Mood and had a regional hit with "Hustle on the Side". That song was made for Mood's album Doom, which featured amongst others Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli. Talib and Hi-Tek clicked immediately, and Hi-Tek went on to produce most of Talib Kweli and Mos Def's Black Star (1998). In 2000, Tek and Kweli (under the name Reflection Eternal) released Train of Thought (2000) on Rawkus Records, with raps by Talib Kweli and beats by Hi-Tek. It enjoyed moderate crossover radio success with the singles "The Blast" and "Move Somethin'". The pair have yet to release a follow-up album.

Mikey Mo follows it up now with a written song he created through his networkings on MySpace. We never got the actual title, but he does describe the song as being about balance. The madness in his eyes truly reveal a hidden genius.
