Shouts to Matthew and Phil at The MadBury Club for an excellent story on some of the source material we used for “Brooklyn’s Finest.” Actually, all of their editorial is really impressive. Check out their full site if you aren’t already on it.Comments?
Welcome to the new site! We’ll be using this space to keep everyone up to date with the latest and greatest — Twitter wasn’t cutting it any more, LOL. So yeah, be sure to subscribe or register. We figured it would be appropriate to launch this site on the 1 year anniversary of the release of “Brooklyn’s Finest.” So much has happened for us in the last 365 days — almost too much to cover in one blog post — so instead, check out the posts below for some of what’s happened in the last year.
On June 16th we’ll be ‘performing’ at L Magazine & Brooklyn Bodega’s Northside Festival in Brooklyn with a few special guests (flyer coming soon). Kooley High is also on the bill along with a ton of other dope live bands and acts. It’ll definitely be a good show so make sure to come out! We’ll post here again once we have more details sorted out…
It’s on the way. Here’s a rough snippet…
Merry Christmas from The Stuyvesants!!! “BK in the Blue” is yet another unreleased track from our Stuyvesants project. This is a bright, upbeat track…one that AL and myself liked a lot, a WHOOOOLE lot, but couldn’t find a spot for it on the album, so this is our gift to the listeners. Enjoy…Comments?
“Bring the Strings” is an unreleased track from our Stuyvesants project (this track is the distant cousin to “Bring the Horns”, which was track 4 on the album). This is a heavy, dirty, string sample that made for a pretty dope instrumental, however, the sound didn’t quite fit the vibe of the other tracks on the album so we sat it on the bench. Enjoy…

We’ve been meeting a lot of people lately interested in The Stuyvesants, and whenever we’re out we always have to write down our information to give to people…which over time becomes a bit much. Solution? Print up some business cards. Specifics? We letter pressed the logo and supporting type in black, on an egg shell textured double-thick bright white paper stock. Clean, simple, and VERY on purpose.Comments?
This is a recent video by Fresh Daily (a dope Brooklyn-bred emcee), that he was inspired to create over the “Stuyvesants Swing” track from our Brooklyn’s Finest record. It meant a lot to me and AL that people were influenced enough by the sound of the record to go out and create to it. From a visual standpoint, this is a well shot vid! To Fresh…much respect. Enjoy…Comments?
The Stuyvesants (Algorythm and myself), will be participating in this monthly beat showcase hosted by Guerrilla Words, and producer Illmind. Come out and support us if you can. The legendary Buckwild will be in the building! If you don’t know his production work…PLEASE GET FAMILIAR WITH IT!!!Comments?
