Timebomb & Dominant Force present SUMMER TIME BOMBING, Mixed by MR. OWL

Graffiti is the first of hip-hop’s five elements. And this is true for Timebomb as well. Before there was a store, a booming website, an MTV countdown hosted inside, or features in Wiz Khalifa’s and Mac Miller’s video there was rush of the late night bombing mission and the million and one close calls that happen when a crew takes on an entire city with markers and cans for fame.

DJ Mr. Owl helps the fans remember these roots with a 77 minute conceptual blockbuster homage to street art and the fearless writers and vandals who make it happen in the trenches nightly. This end to end burner car pulls out of the station and into Timebomb on the 16th of August where fans of the art and the culture can get hard copies and limited edition t-shirts and stickers. Anyone who listens to this tape will have the mental ammo to be a king. If you slack on it then you might just be a toy so make sure you’re there.  To honor the Mixtape and our roots Timebomb Shop is going to have a Summer Time Bombing Sale all day Thursday Aug 16th so stop by if you’re in the Pittsburgh Area.

MR. OWL – ‘Consumers Become Producers’ Mixtape feat Jack Wilson

As paradoxical as it sounds, artists might be the ultimate consumers: sponges on a reconnaissance mission to absorb what they will later wring into the bucket of their chosen craft – the resulting alchemy thus becoming the artist’s own creation. On “Consumers Become Producers”, Pittsburgh’s Mr. Owl has soaked up and seamlessly blended some of today’s most cutting-edge independent music into which poet/MC Jack Wilson regurgitates his own slop of socially-conscious wit and sharp hip-hop influenced wordplay to produce a groundbreaking mix of everything Owl and Wilson represent as creative consumers. Digest accordingly.

PRAISE FOR “CONSUMERS BECOME PRODUCERS”:

“Now here is a real treat. A supreme mix from MR. OWL, he has gathered artists/producers from all over this planet to present us a truly amazing experience. Including beats by folks like MALEFIQUE, YAHN LOOKE PICKARD, PROF.LOGIK, HANDBOOK, and many many many more, this mix ups the ante by throwing the master of ceremonies, Jack Wilson, on some supreme spoken word trip that lasts nearly the greater length of this epic collection.”
-ChrisGFR @ Grappa Frisbee Records

“Although I often find myself frustrated and depressed by the barrage of bullshit that floods my Soundcloud inbox; however, sometimes, whilst wading through the anonymous links of producers longing for recognition, there is a moment of magic. And this Consumers Become Producers mixtape by Mr. Owl (of Dominant Force) and Jack Wilson is one of the more inventive concepts (and uses for Soundcloud), I’ve heard in a while. Essentially, Mr. Owl spent tireless hours canvassing Soundcloud for various beats, compiled a mixtape of his favorite finds… and enlisted MC/poet, Jack Wilson, to rhyme over them all with the overarching theme of the musical consumer creating something new out of these Soundcloud treasures. … This is a brilliant concept that is well executed. Tell your friends.”
-JERKSTORE @ Sick Chirpse

“I just got round to checking out Mr. Owl & Jack Wilson’s “Consumers Become Producers” mix which I am sharing with you here right now. This one features just over 47 minutes of music courtesy of a bunch of great up and coming producers including Prof.Logik, Ben Jamin, Malefique, Handbook and many more! On top of that, you have Jack Wilson blessing the beats with his vocals. … Be on the lookout for another project from Mr. Owl/Collective Resonance soon”
-minipimp @ Collective Resonance

“Hip-Hop in my opinion though I love it remains a genre that could benefit from experimentation and new ideas. Recently I had the pleasure of linking up with a Pittsburgh MC by the name of Jack Wilson. Due to a mutual respect for each others craft we he it off immediately. Soon after I was blessed with the opportunity to be featured on a track with him. The tracks production was not conventional to say the least. MR. Owl an abstract beat maker and Pittsburgh native laced it with a style that set it apart from anything I had ever conceived could be a hip hop track but nonetheless the blend was magical. Just recently both Jack and the Owl himself teamed up and created the project for which the cover is shown. Sparatic in nature this entire project maintains a mind-bending scheme that is somehow intoxicating. Edgy syllable placement and an other worldly sound seen to expand to spark a metaphor that could not be put into words. With that said I suggest you click the link and spark the auditory senses.”
-Avant-Garde @ Endless Euphony

“Mr. Owl always deliver hot mixes, this one is none other than genius. Give it a listen people!”

MR. OWL – ‘They Don’t Care About Little Birds’ Mixtape

The year is 2011. Corporate greed is hell bent on exterminating the pesky underground musicians who are cutting into the profits of the major labels. They don’t care about little birds, including Mr. Owl – and they don’t want you to care either – “ignore owls or lose job” as they put it. This mixtape tells the story of the struggle of true heads against the bigwigs who want to destroy all real shit. Bulldozing creativity from coast to coast, they intend to wipe out the natural beauty of our audible world and replace it with the musical equivalent of tourist hotels, strip malls, and pancake houses. “You gotta start thinking like an outlaw” if you want to fight back. Spectacular selections from 26 of the dopest artists worldwide constitute the resistance. Listen to this mixtape, because the very future of underground music is at stake. “Ladies and gentlemen, these kids are a little misguided, they have no proof of any owls. Do you folks see any owls? Because I don’t!” Yes, we do see owls. And we know that the powers-that-be are scared of what’s to come.
