For their latest episode of errant gunfire, Nocando and Jeff welcome Zilla Rocca, Curly Castro, and Prem Rock for a discussion on Philadelphia hip-hop, noir-rap, their “otherground collective” and the occasional reggaeton digression.
In addition, Nocando and Jeff talk about what they did for New Year’s and pour out a little hummus for James Avery of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and Benjamin Curtis of The Secret Machines.
That’s right – Wrecking Crew (Zilla Rocca & Curly Castro), PremRock, and DJ Halo will be flipping switches and eating fish tacos on a west coast run stretching from San Francisco to New Mexico and right back to Sin City where coolers go to thrive. The Roland Bishop Memorial Tour — if you want respect, you gotta EARN IT!
“It’s the summer, and it’s festival season – go do you. You need something to come home to, right? Luckily, the duo known as Silent Dust have given away the perfect track to turn in to. This low-key, downtempo affair is known as “Machina,” and not only features the perfect vocal from Cloudeater, but two of the Philly Wrecking Crew lyricists Zilla Rocca and Curly Castro make an appearance. Zilla and Castro are no strangers to bass music, as they’ve put out a number of bits with the likes of Starkey, Dylan, and many others, and their addition to this electronic hip-hop beaut is necessary. This isn’t for the turnt up; this is for the tuned in.” – Do Androids Dance
Directed by the mighty Joe Castro of “Full Spectrum” fame, the video for “Weak Stomach (Zilla Rocca Remix)” finds the Shadowboxers and Curly Castro on a midnight basement meeting gone to hell over a desperate dame, all in the bowels of South Philly
