What more can be said about this legendary MC, friend, father and true artist, who did a lot for Hip Hop, fellow artists and the battle rap game that hasn’t been said already? The friends and family of PH aka PUMPKINHEAD have dedicated ourselves to keeping his legacy alive, musically and in support of his seeds. The events are packed with great music from incredible artists, but are also a great time to reconnect with fam, remember PH and toast to those who are gone but not forgotten, as many good brothers and sisters have transcended in recent years.

PH MEMORIAL SHOW: Immortal Technique, Apathy, Dwellas, Nems, DNA, Charlie Clips

Salute to EVERYBODY on the bill (and those not on the bill), because everyone is donating their time whether promoting, working the event or performing onstage. Previous memorial shows featured a gazillion artists, who were all PH’s friends and musical collaborators, but with so many on the stage each artist got very little shine in the few minutes allotted. This year we scaled it back a bit, so that the line up will not be the same every show and the artists have more time to pay homage with their musical renditions.

Shouts to Doc Ahk who did much of the legwork, booking and promotions, the flyer itself and is one of the best event promoters and stage managers in New York. The show is going to be incredible – of course. IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE will inspire, motivate and incite. APATHY joining us is a new treat. The CELLA DWELLAS are definitely a hometown favorite. While notorious for their battle rap careers, this is an awesome opportunity to hear artists like NEMS, DNA, CHARLIE CLIPS and Team HOMI flex their material, a countermeasure to the mumble rap music movement (YOU WILL HEAR ACTUAL WORDS! LOL) and represents 100% REAL HIP HOP.

These will be available at the event – while supplies last!!

As for my crew, The PLAGUE? … hell yeah, we will do our thing! Not about to let anybody upstage us, LOL. The BAD SEED is rocking joints from his new project SEED x NOTTZ, produced by NOTTZ obviously and that is all I need to know. Seed with the verses, Nottz with the beats. Let’s go!

Me (GMS), Wild Child, LR Blitzkrieg, PackFM, MrMecc and Tonedeff, plus Poison Pen (who reps Team Homi, Stronghold and The Plague) and DJ DP ONE are coming with some classics, but also some brand new material, which has never been performed before. All in honor of our fallen champion, the Underground King, PH aka PUMPKINHEAD!

Other DJ’s ECLIPSE, TOSHI & JOE BODEGA will keep the party rockin’ before, after and in between sets and the whole night will be hosted by EOW (End of the Weak) so this night is going to be extra special!

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD – Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD – Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

Back by popular demand, the once out of stock RARE mixtapes are again available!

For years, even before his transition in 2015, many of PUMPKINHEAD’s classic Mixtapes had sold out and were not available as CD’s or digital downloads. Some of the songs can be found here and there on Youtube or a bootleg free downloads website, but several of them are considered RARE and cannot be found anywhere. The few copies that were on ebay for hundreds of dollars have long been sold.

MCMI Report: PUMPKINHEAD - Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 (Re-released!)

At Robert PH Diaz‘ widow’s request, MCMI is excited to put these classic Pumpkinhead mixtapes back into rotation! These collections were curated by Pumpkinhead himself. They contain original songs that never made an album, freestyles and songs recorded over known beats, and songs he would record just for those mixtapes, to hold his fans over between his major releases.

Every couple of weeks, we will be uploading another of PH’s classic mixtapes. We already have My Era: No Skinny Jeans Allowed (which comes with a high quality download of his video for That’s That Sh*t!) and now Park Slope Renaissance: Vol 1 is available, at PHmcmi.bandcamp.com, where you can also find his latest singles and albums and other past works.

The cover of the Park Slope Renaissance mixtapes Pt 1 & 2 (pt 2 will be released in 2weeks!) were done by MCMI’s LR Blitzkrieg, who will be dropping a solo album #OuttaNowhere, soon, with a song featuring PH and the legendary MOP. The photo is in front of the actual Marlboro sign on the corner bodega of the block PH grew up on, Degraw St & 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn, which as you may already know will forever be know as Robert “PH” Diaz Way, thanks to our petition brought to the City Council by Councilman Brad Lander and signed into law by Mayor De Blasio last year.

All proceeds of the mixtapes (and his entire MCMI catalogue) go to PH’s surviving three children, Raiden, Royce & Robbie, so go download some music, listen to some powerful Hip Hop and look to the East for that orange moon over Brooklyn!

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn – Remixed & Restyled

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn – Remixed & RestyledMCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & RestyledAt MCMI Records, we do most of our recording, mixing and mastering out of one studio. We have for years. The reason? We trust the ear, experience and skill of our chief engineer, Dennis Mitchell.

Dennis is an old school studio engineer who can build compression strips, microphones and mixing boards, make his own cables, build computers and set up speakers and soundproofing for optimum mixing. He’s been recording since AMPEX reels back in the day, but knows the latest hardware and software and is always up to date. Simply put, he is one of the best. Rockafella had Young Guru on the boards; MCMI has Dennis Mitchell.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

Paying his dues at the big studios like Firehouse, INS, Chung King, Electric Ladyland and others, Dennis tracked or mixed sessions for Das EFX, SWV, Wu-tang Clan and many other notable artists.

When Dennis set up a studio in his apartment in Park Slope, artists in the know followed. The location didn’t matter. The mixes came out awesome, balanced vocals, thumping kicks and punchy snares. His analogue compression modules, and knowledge of frequencies, and his ear (actually, both of them), created amazing results.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

When the studio relocated to a bigger space on 626 Carlton Avenue, MCMI Records set up shop and started working on music from Hydra, PH (aka Pumpkinhead), Chordz Cordero, MrMecc, Archrival and other artists. The late great PH’s album “Know The Ledge” was recorded and mixed there as was The PLAGUE song “TWELVE”.

The only thing lacking in was that the vocal booth could only hold one person and the mixing station was quite small. Four or five people in the room and you were packed in like sardines. Sill, a lot of artists recorded great music there, including Young M.A, Lil Fame of M.O.P., Troy Ave and others.

MCMI REPORT: Stonebrown Studios Brooklyn - Remixed & Restyled

In 2016, Dennis decided to expand the studio and take it to the next level. He tore down the walls, redid the ceilings and floors and even moved the heating system to create more space. Now the mixing room can accommodate a lot more people, the sound booth can hold a group of people, plus instruments and he has a nice lounge which doubles as a live room or Podcast/Radio show, when needed. Whether you sing, rap or are a DJ making a mixtape, you can record live, mix, have your tracks mastered, apply autotune or melodine, Stonebrown Studios does it all.

Over a year ago we lost a true Legend in the game, Robert “PH” Diaz aka Pumpkinhead. His family lost a father, husband, brother, son, nephew and uncle.

At MCMI, we lost lost a best freind and business partner, President of A&R at the label and musical collaborator with our crew The PLAGUE. We have had vigils, concerts, memorials and tributes in his name – and there will be more – but what the WORLD has cried out for most has been his music!

There have been collaborations that came out, which we were grateful to hear Rob’s voice on, such as Apathy’s “Amon RAW” and Bad Seed’s “5 Minutes“, but now at long last, the new PH song “FLY AWAY” featuring Chordz Cordero, produced by Leyone Tracks, is here! Add it to your collection.
