In celebration of Dj Kon and Amir's highly anticipated upcoming release, "off track vol. 1 - Bronx", this post will pay tribute to their rarer masterpieces.




" We wanted

to come with nothing but good music

from beginning to end."



Christian Kon Taylor and Amir Abdullah are two of the worlds most respected crate diggers. Their On Track tapes and Kings of Diggin' are the definitive compilations of their kind. Collecting wax since the tender age of 5, Kon is an established DJ, producer and engineer, while Amir, a vinyl addict since 1986, DJs and is Sales Manager at ABB Records.
The duo met in 1996, shopping for breaks at Bostons Biscuithead Records. Months later they recorded their first On Track mixtape on a Fisher Price tape deck, and the lessons began. Their record knowledge, as well as their digging services have been sought after by the most respected names in the game, including Shady Records, Diamond, Pete Rock and Lord Finesse. According to Finesse, Kon and Amir are two of the most extraordinary but underrated beat diggers in the game. To that end, in 2004, Kon and Amir opened On Track Productions, Inc. which offers their digging services to beatmakers and producers in need of the rarest pieces of wax. The Beantown duo has made a name for them selves by consistently reintroducing the masses the music of the past. As Amir puts it, I want those who appreciate good music to become fans. Kon and Amir are educators, giving their listeners a crash course in dusty groove 101, seamlessly blending loops and breaks that, in the words of Stones Throw Records Egon Alapatt, have left more than a few crate diggers scratching their heads, saying Now what that fuck was that?! Its not just the music I love, says Kon. But music other people need to be put up on. By spanning decades of yesteryears gems, Kon and Amir give their listeners a real perspective on the history of the art.

Kon & Amir - The best of Ontrack Vol 1-6

Known as one of the best crate digging series, this is a compilation of best cuts from volumes 1-6









Found this next gem in our collection: Kon & Amir: Pop in Trans Europe Express. This mixtape by Kon & Amir contains dozens of obscure fragments of European to-be releases. It has a heavy, groovy funk feel similar to their "on track" series.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
