What up YAWL...Merry Christmas!!!...I know its droppin a day later than I would have liked but my Christmas was a bit complicated this year and couldnt really get on the net to up the videos (although I did try and managed to drop the Welsh one first hence that gettin 300 somethin views currently!!).
Anyway If you've been following Louis Den for the past year or so then you'll remember last Christmas we did the Xmas wax swap with the boys in the scotland myself (Kos) and Kela swapped records with S-Type & Jaisu and made a beat from a christmas record..we then dropped them on my youtube channel and Prolifik (Ab0181) respectively..Well since then a lot has happened!! me and Pro have a beatmaking doc underway, we've linked a few times for beat geek outs and I even managed to get the boys down to SMASH the Louis Den Beat Cypher that took place earlier this month.
WELLLL of course it being Christmas Pro was already gettin hit up as soon as Dec hit asking him if he was gonna drop another xmas vid...so we knew it had to be so heres how we did it!.
To make it even better than last year I connected with the mighty Mayor from Welsh indie hiphop label Associated Minds...banged a few messages back and forth and got a couple of their producers (Metabeats & P.L.O) down for the project too so this time round we've got 3 camps of producers all exchanging xmas records, rather than squash it into rushed video we dropped em country by country so you get a better feel for everyones process!.
WRAPPED UP 2008 WALES
WRAPPED UP 2008 ENGLAND
WRAPPED UP 2008 SCOTLAND
I did the final edits / gfx for the vids with each camp filming theirs seperately but Prolifiks youtube is gonna be the future spot for a lot of collab/louisden related stuff as we're all pushing the same team! PLUS...this whole wrapped up thing is a joint effort/concept with myself, Prolifik and Mayor all ironing out the ideas earlier on in the month to get this to you!.
Props to Mayor for handlin the welsh side of things I know it wasnt easy getting the camera crew, Metabeats & P.L.O all together to shoot/dig and getting me the vid sent (xmas eve!!)...
Pro for handling ish the best he could despite being in spain for xmas!!
and yeah yourselves for being part of / fans of Louis Den or just vibing off the movment!! heres to a dope 2009!
MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL OF US!....
peace & beats!.
