Ashwan-Inheritance Wax mixtape. FREE download

They say:

Inheritance Wax started a few years ago, when Ashwan was working with the elderly in Liverpool, UK. As they passed on, families would come and clear their homes of all belongings which inevitably meant whole record collections being thrown out each time.
Being a dj and producer, as well as nostalgic for the days when you could walk into some ones place, glance at the record collection and book shelf and get a sense of what that person is about, Ashwan salvaged the records and started making new record covers and sampling and remixing the original vinyl to create new art from the old.
The project is heavily hip hop influenced but instead of hours of crate digging, the sample base has come from this limited palate, with the hope that a different and unique sound will entail that also somehow pays tribute to the artists Liverpool roots.
The music is free to download, while the original vinyl covers will be sealed in air tight bubbles for preservation, turning the discarded object back into one of value and meaning. These will be exhibited together with the music over the coming months in the UK and across Europe. Please check www.ashwan.co.uk for up to date information on these.

I say:

OPEN / WIDE @ Alaska 26.03.2011

I say:

WORDAMOUTH opens the mic at a new venue with hosts Angry Sam and curious. OPEN/WIDE offers open mic spots without the restrictions of some other nights - props, beats, instruments, collaborations, freestyles are all welcome on the WORDAMOUTH mic. The focus is on developing talent through access and feedback from a creative and diverse audience.
A hive of poetic and musical talent Alaska Studios is an exciting venue to be associated with. Come down and spit/sing/rap/recite or just have a drink and cheer like a crazy fool; the choice is always yours.
DJ sets from curious and guest DJs complete the picture.

OPEN/WIDE is not a slam BUT we will be inviting acts to perform at our other night FreeStyles @ Favela Chic on 12th April featuring Polar Bear and Session Noisses.

Entry is £5

Hope to see you there.

email: poetcurious@gmail.com to reserve an open mic spot or sign up on the night. LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE.
