summer heat
July 13, 2003 by Jeff

What up ya'll.... Chicago's bringing that summer heat... as always. The crew is back from The Submerged State Tour and things are poppin' at home once again. Thanks to all those that supported us at the Endangered Species nights in the first half of 2003. We've postponed the night for now, on the search for a new venue... we all loved the Hothouse when it was 18+, but with the new age restriction it was time to move on.

Next evolutionary development for G4 is the long awaited release of Royce’s "Subtleties Of The Game". You've seen them stealing the show around Chicago, rocking house parties, hip-hop shows, & backyard BBQs with equal ease. Now you can get the full recorded experience of Royce's electric sounds with White Lightning on the bass & boards, Jamie Clemmons on guitar & vocals, Connor on drums & Ross Vegas on keys... and of course Qwelly Belly drops by the Royce sound lab to rip the mic on 2 ill new tracks. Expect an eclectic mix of live rock experimentation, sugary sweet hits, hard ass beats & surreal soul from these Chi-town natives... "Subtleties Of The Game" drops August 19th on Galapagos4.

G4 will be releasing our first instrumental album, "Laced", also coming early this August. This will be a limited edition CD & vinyl EP featuring classic G4 instrumentals & new beats from White Lightning, Meaty Ogre, Open I, DJ Natural & Jackson Jones.

Meaty Ogre is putting the finishing touches on his upcoming full length "Leo Vs. Pisces", due out this fall on Galapagos4. The album will feature Meaty's signature production plus vocal tracks from Offwhyte, Qwel, Denizen Kane, Robust, Rift Napalm, Mestizo & Actual Fact... ... madness you've come to expect from the Ogre. Cop the 7" featuring Robust & Rift out now... another instrumental 7" coming soon along with the full length CD & 2 vinyl EPs (one vocals, one beats).

Typical Cats are hard at work on their new material... you know I don't have to tell you if it's raw... they'll take some time out to embark on the Tuck Your Pride In Tour this September, also featuring Offwhyte w/Dr. Jones, DJ Meaty Ogre & our host Mestizo. Starting with an early show in Brooklyn on August 21st, this tour will hit the Midwest, South East & South U.S. from Sept. 5th-Sept. 21st. Full tour dates coming soon...

The Tuck Your Pride In Tour hometown Chicago show will be Saturday September 6th @ The Bottom Lounge. The show is all ages, only $10 & will feature Typical Cats, Vakill of The Molemen, Offwhyte w/ Dr. Jones, Rift Napalm, Robust, Mestizo, Meaty Ogre & Royce. Doors open at 5pm, show starts at 6pm so get there early! The show will be out by 9:30pm...

Stay tuned to Galapagos4.com for the full Tuck Your Pride In Tour dates, plus more show & release announcements...

MEATY OGRE - Flibbertigibbit / Long Dirty Word
March 26, 2003 by Jeff

It’s been a while since I leaked any news, so I thought I’d lay it out there. This time of war is trying on the mind & soul... so we’ve been working hard at the music and keeping things rolling...

We’re set to release the lead single to the upcoming Meaty Ogre full length, a split 7-inch with production by Meaty and rhymes by Robust & Rift Napalm. This 45 will be limited to 1000 pressed & released May 13, 2003. The Meaty Ogre LP ""Leo vs. Pisces"" is currently in production and will be out later this year on Galapagos4. The album is sounding incredible and will feature Meaty’s heat along with Robust, Rift Napalm, Qwel, Offwhyte, Jayorta & more on the vocal cuts. We’re planning to release the full CD along with 2 seperate slabs of wax, one with vocal tracks and one beats.

Almost ready to hit the streets is Chicago’s favorite surrealist soul band Royce, featuring Dwight Lightning on bass, Ross Vegas on keyboards, C-Rock on drums & Jamie Clemmons on guitar & sweet vocals. Their debut LP ""Subtleties Of The Game"" also features 2 tracks with Qwelly Belly. Take note of the subtleties...

The G4 Endangered Species night at the Hothouse has been going very well, and we promise to kill it every 2nd-Tuesday-of-the-month. Chicago has been holding down, supporting hip hop like never before... let’s keep at it! This month (April 8th) will feature Qwel, Offwhyte, Prime, Royce, Litterthugz & a special surprise performance from the Icy Hot Stuntaz. Heat! Peep the flier courtesy of JASH.

Robust & Rift Napalm are both currently working on their respective full lengths, due out later this year on Galapagos4. Also hard at work in the early stages of new material are Qwel, Offwhyte, White Lightning, Denizen Kane & Typical Cats... expect much more to come from Galapagos4 in the near future... 2003 & beyond

HAPPY NEW YEAR
December 30, 2002 by Jeff

Happy New Year ya’ll! 2002 was another productive year for Galapagos4. Thanks & respect to all our supporters world wide. There’s much more to come in ’03, so stay with us.

First off, run to your corner newsstand and check out the latest issue of Urb Magazine (Jan ’03) for reviews of Offwhyte’s "The Fifth Sun" & Qwel’s "The Rubber Duckie Experiment". Holdin’ it down...

CHASING THE FIFTH SUN TOUR

Offwhyte & his DJ Dr. Jones are embarking on the California-only "Chasing The Fifth Sun" Tour starting January 4th. Come out and support! These two have their show perfected and have been killing every stage they grace... you’ll see.

GALAPAGOS4 PRESENTS ENDANGERED SPECIES @ THE HOTHOUSE

G4 will now be hosting the 2nd Tuesday of every month @ The Hothouse (31 E. Balbo in Chicago). Our inaugural show is January 14th, featuring Denizen Kane, Qwel, Qwazaar & surrealist soul band ROYCE. Yes, that means all 3 Typical Cats MCs will be there... they will be rocking solo sets as well as a group performance (sans DJ Natural).

ERADICATING TOURISM TOUR

From January 23rd to February 9th, Galapagos4 will be marching through Europe on a 5 country/9 show "Eradicating Tourism" Tour (featuring Qwel w/ Meaty Ogre & White Lightning + Offwhyte w/ Dr. Jones). This is our first European tour and it follows the European release of Offwhyte's new album "The Fifth Sun", licensed for foreign distriubtion by Agenda, a sub-label of British electronica label Peacefrog Records.

UPCOMING RELEASES

First to drop in 2003 is the vinyl 2xLP of Qwel’s "The Rubber Duckie Experiment". 2 banging pieces of wax w/ full color covers.

Surrealist soul band ROYCE (f/ Dwight Lightnin, Jamie Clemmons, Ross Vegas & Connor) are dropping their first full length LP "Subtleties Of The Game" in February 2003. The album features 2 dope new tracks with QWEL as well as Jamie’s smooth vocal stylings... hot shit for your barbeque this summer or your indoor potluck in the winter.
We’ll be getting together the first in Meaty Ogre’s 45 series f/ Robust & Rift Napalm. Meaty is also working on his full length album, due out this spring on Galapagos4. Knock!

And yes, Typical Cats are beginning work on their new material... expect a 12" & CDEP in the near future... full length to follow. Ya’ll don’t want it...

Let’s do this!
