The story of Kon and Amir begins in the record bins of Boston. A chance encounter at Biscuithead Records in 1996 would lead to one of the best-kept alliances in the beat digging world. Within a year of their meeting, the pair cut On Track Volume 1, the first in what would be a six part series of mix discs, infecting ears with seamless blends of unparalleled beats and breaks. Over a lifetime of collecting, they’ve unearthed records that define the word rare, pulling from the best in deep funk, soul, jazz, R&B, Latin, reggae, and of course, hip-hop. After the conclusion of the On Track series, the duo secured a five-record deal with BBE/Rapster, and have already released two entries the On Track companion series Off Track, with a third installment set for release in March 2010. No bin is too dirty for Kon and Amir; the DJs have scoured all manner of records spots in their day, braving seedy barrooms and rabid fanatics along the way. It’s all been a part of what is now a discography that goes eight albums deep, including The Kings of Diggin’ with their Japanese contemporary DJ Muro. Over the course of their twelve year career, Kon and Amir have gained legendary status oversees while achieving domestic recognition from some of the most beloved beat-diggers, DJs, and producers in the game. Lord Finesse has referred to the team as “two of the most extraordinary but underrated beat diggers in the game,” and turntable virtuoso A-Trak regards their compilations and mixtapes as underground DJ classics. Like the vinyl they collect, Kon and Amir are of a rare breed. They consistently shake up dancefloors the world over, and their popularity is so high that fans actually offer up their own dusty singles and LPs as a gift to these beloved collectors. Their working command of music history makes them breathing tomes of wax knowledge; to that effect, Shady Records, Dr. Dre, Pete Rock, Diamond D, and Capitol Records (to name but a few) have called upon their expertise. – http://www.bbemusic.com
“Since its inception in 2001, the bi-monthly Wax Poetics magazine has become a bible for seekers of rarefied grooves, message-laden hip-hop, and ephemera from bygone soul and funk eras. It is to publishing what Soul Jazz is to the crate-digging community–not just a distiller of the finest lost sounds in funk, reggae, and jazz but a griot-like teller of their histories. Last year, with the help of Amir Abdullah (of Kon and Amir fame), the magazine expanded to include a label of the same name…” – http://www.xlr8r.com

I would like to take time and introduce to you someone that has worked very close with me and the Unique74 family. He has worked wonders for me as a person and my company at which his creative vision and insight has helped to propel many great projects that we’ve produced. Most importantly, he is a true friend and someone that I have had tremendous moral support and creative direction from for over 10 + years. He is what we call a “stand up guy”, very few and far in this day and age.
The man I am speaking of is none other than Da’shon Is, who has recently released his first book that I encourage everyone to purchase. For those who seek self improvement and questions answered, Da’shon Is provides the blueprint in which we are seeking a higher ground. From Romance, Creative, Wealth to Finance ,Travel & other endeavors that we are aspiring for, this book is a central element in reaching these goals.
I highly encourage everyone to pick your online copy of:
“The Way of the Blessed Black Billionaire” by Da’Shon Is
