Ground Lift magazine aims
to be your source for all things beat related. While we
definitely have a soft spot for deep vinyl joints, hip-hop
is our first love. We feel that there can be no real discussion
of hip-hop without involving the rare-ass, black wax gems
upon which hiphop is built.
Lift exists where the worlds of old and new intersect,
and we're gonna do our damnedest to help folks, of any
'skill' level, connect the dots between them. You can
expect a healthy dose of shit talking, artist-critic
beefs and pointless, yet entertaining, minutiae. And
if the mag doesn't have enough beat science for you,
check out our massive digger's resource containing album
cover pics, concise descriptions, and soundclip streams
on an ever-growing amount of rare and classic vinyl.
your magazine, we just write it. Ground Lift aims to
be as interactive as it can be. In addition to our monthly
contests and reader submitted stories, we ask you let
us know if there's anything else you'd enjoy seeing
or reading. Want to hate on us? go 'head. Want to holler
back? Our door's always open.
Just don't send us fuckin' spam.
Haphazardly thrown together
over the course of a weekend in the fall of 2000, breakz4dayz.com
began life as a drunken idea spouted off at closing
time. It was a rough start but luckily for you, we love
love music more than we love booze. Way more.
months following its launch, thousands of people visited
the site. Some looking to purchase break-realated wax,
others looking to keep their minds occupied after the
'Crates List' disappeared. Whichever the case, our server
was quickly overloaded and a second evolution was imminent.
five years. The launch of Ground Lift Magazine marks
our fifth evolution... and counting. We've given the
entire site a new face: streamlined navigation, enhanced
the multimedia experience and hired a handful of top
shelf music writers to churn out coherent sentences
on the regular.
month you can expect new feature articles & interviews,
rotating minor features, concert footage, at least two
new mixes, 15-20 new music reviews, 100+ additions to
the resource and more!
So that's what's up. Enjoy!
