What up folks?

I neglected to mention this in the previous posts, but we now have mixtapes available in selected cities in both Canada and the USA! The prices range from like $5 to $10, depending on the store, but check the list below for your nearest spot:

Soul of Sisa - 504 Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, Georgia

So if you're in any of these cities and wanna get your hands on a rare hard copy of the new projects (we only pressed a small amount for the international trip), roll through and cop 'em now!

For the folks Down Under (and everywhere else), we'll be pressing up a gang of copies of both mixtapes asap so we'll keep y'all posted.

Much love,
Cee & Bekah.

The Movement Fam US Invasion - Weeks 4-5 UPDATE! We home!

Yes's update time again. Weekly updates were damn near impossible as we were moving around, so fortnightly it is.

Aight so after the last update, we left y'all in Toronto. Things went real well in the T-Dot, with another radio spot, studio sessions with Miss Jessica Kaya (what up, Jessie?) and a lot of sightseeing (Niagara Falls, CN Tower, etc). The photo shoot unfortunately didn't come through due to time constraints, but now that we have the contacts, we'll most def hit it up next time.

The last night in TO was amazing. My man Craig and Ally decided to get all stupid and cop some wigs and ridiculous outfits for our last night on the town, so all of us were looking amazingingly stupid and had a wicked night. Shout outs to the dancing man at Mod Club. You're a genius, bro.

So our last stop in North America was LA. Last time Bekah and I hit the town up, we didn't really enjoy ourselves. This time was a different story. We hired ourselves a lil Chevy Impala to take us around town, and being such a huge place, we would have been fucked without it. We had some meetings with Wayne Fernandez, the man who ran the WKD radio spot in Melbourne that I grew up listening to, so to dine with Wayne and his mate Rod was a blessing, thanks guys! We also linked with my man Tunji from Inverse, who hooked us up plenty at the Interscope promo room, and cooked a mean BBQ out at his girl's crib in Venice. Shouts to the Sour Diesel, which left us fully operational the next day lol.

It was hella sad leaving North America, but New Zealand was calling. After a long ass flight, we soldiered on and stayed up all day for our radio spot that night with DJ Penfold, which went really well. We also linked with my man Kebrasca from Mai FM, which should be a great relationship for both of us. We got some time to take in the sights of Auckland, it's a beautiful city, and we wish we could have been able to stay a bit longer. Much love to Mat and Debz for taking us everywhere, and shouts to Lish, Bronson, Cilla and Donna!

So a couple days back we arrived back home in Melbourne to 30 degree weather! Fuckin' booooooom!! Of course, that didn't last but we're happy to be home and have a shitload of work to do.

Just a reminder, producers, keep submitting remixes for our competition on, there's still just under 2 months left to go. We'll have a couple projects good to go in the next few months, as well a Movement Fam blog on a well known Hip Hop site, which we'll be releasing in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for that.

The Movement Fam and Notion blog pages are almost good to go, so we'll be launching those very shortly, and the Cee & Bekah blog will become more specific to us and more personal, as with Notion's blog, while the Movement Fam blog (ran by DJ Grain) will contain all the news and goings on for the crew.

Much love to everyone, and keep checking our YouTube channel for the video blogs from the trip, coming soon!!

Cee & Bekah.

The Movement Fam on The G.O.D.cast (Oakland, CA)!

What up, fam?

I'm writing to you at like 4am from Toronto, hella tired but it's time to handle business, regardless of what the clock says.

Just wanted to let y'all know that the G.O.D.cast edition that we featured on with our good mates Citizen and Cobb (and the greater Understudies crew) out in Oakland, California is finally online and good to go!

Huge shouts to Citizen and Fly Cobb for having us on the show and being most gracious hosts out in Oaktown. Of course, shouts to Vlad for his hospitality and my mans Jeremy for the recording time.

Please check this out and support real music, real people, real shit.

The Movement Fam US Invasion - Weeks 2-3 UPDATE!

Yes yes yes yes! What the funk is crackalackin'??

My apologies for the late update from the past couple weeks, we've had intermittent net access, and to be honest, we've just been too busy and having too good of a time. But I'm actually sitting in the room in Toronto on a Saturday night, a cold ass Saturday mind you, with the Nuit Blanche festival going on outside and instead of joining the festivities, I'm blogging. That either makes me an extremely dedicated young man or a right goose.

Anyway, since we were in ATL, a lotta thangs have been happening. Atlanta was amazing, we had such a great time, and straight after the laid back south was the hectic New York city. Aside from the turbulence on the small ass plane, everything with beautiful touching down at JFK. We had been graced with amazing weather the whole time but all that came to an abrupt halt when the east coast turned the waterworks on for us the entire time. Word to rain.

So the first night in NYC was straight to the hostel, then off to Libation for the last night in a series of club evening ran by Danny Castro of Lyricist Lounge fame. Our very good friend Eternia (what up Silky?? Click on her name to check out her site) hooked us up VIP to see DJ Tony Touch do his thang, and other cats such as Ju Ju from the Beatnuts and Sway were in the building. Aside from the tourist attractions, we had a couple important meetings with some label and radio folks out there which will hopefully grow into a very mutually beneficial relationships. Loved it, and would love to live there...even after my ATL rant.

Next up was T-DOT!!! Our second home. It's beautiful to be back here, seriously. No other city thus far has excited me to be in as much as Toronto. We missed this place so damn much, I truly think this is where we need to be. The love that has been extended here (mostly through Eternia's wonderful friends) is mindblowing. We've already done two major radio spots, dished out mixtapes to influential folks, had a couple great meetings, caught up with friends, done semi nudie runs down Queen St at 2am...still got photo shoots and studio sessions to come. Massive shouts to Great Scott and DJ O-Nonymos from Sound Junction, Theo 3 and DJ Serious from Styalistik Endeavours, Big Jacks, Dave, DJ Grouch and please do yourselves a favour and check out Big It Up, a Canadian owned hat company which has the most amazing headgear I have ever seen. Dameion (CEO/President) is one of the most sincere and spiritual people we have had the pleasure of meeting, and The Movement Fam will be continuing strong supporters of Big It Up.

Also, check out Notion's article on WYDU blog, massive shouts to Trav. Producers, keep it moving on the remix competition on, we've had a fair few submissions thus far and it's all sounding pretty damn dope. Exciting shit.

That's about it for now. We'll be in Los Angeles by the end of the week, then off to Auckland, New Zealand before returning to MEL.

Scream at ya peoples, thanks again for all your support, we got a lot in store for 2008/2009 so it can't stop, won't stop, fuck stopping.

Cee & Bekah.
