A little while ago, Hostile Dub went did a bit of urban exploration / wilderness in the south of England, and came across an amazing and equally terrifying train graveyard. The gallery below speaks for itself:

Patrick Swayze (RIP):
Actor. Singer. Producer. Hip Hop Icon.
Throughout the age of hip hop, Patrick Swayze's name has been used in countless classic songs, particularly as a reference to the word 'Ghost' (due to his role in the 1990 classic of the same name). This may be due to the fact that it conveniently rhymes with 'crazy', however I choose to believe that it was more to do with Swayze's unwavering street credibility in the hood.
Below is a selection of all the great hip hop songs that we have been able to find that reference the man himself, with hits from the likes of Method Man, Biggie, 2pac, Pete Rock, EPMD and many more.
(We even included a bonus track at the end. Not strictly Hip Hop, but still a great reference.)
Enjoy your Swayze-induced fun avid readers!

Highly regarded as one of the greatest and well-respected thespians, Danny Dyer has stunned audiences the world over in his iconic portrayals of the character of "a 'ard nut" in over 50,000 films.

Here's to an EVIL 2014!
As some of you may have seen from our earlier gallery, on Boxing Day we went out and had a bit of an adventure. We caused some mischief, did some painting and decided to film it.
Here's what we got up to:
Now we love us a bit of poetry, but nothing could have prepared us for the absolute brilliance of this poem by spoken word artist Hollie McNish about how stupid Flo Rida's 'Whistle' truly is.
All you need to do to enjoy it is put the Flo Rida video on mute and play Hollie's poem at the same time.
If you like what you hear you can follow Hollie on twitter here:

We did some mischief and stuff, and we're cutting a video as we speak so keep locked for that.
BOXING DAY SESSIONS - COMING SOON !
The sample culture of modern music is as out of control as it is incredible. I’m pretty sure that every song that has come out in the last 20 years is a mashup of a remix of a song that sampled another tune which is already a cover.
To the uneducated, ‘sampling’ is when a producer or DJ (Deejay or ‘Disc Jockey’) ‘cuts’ a bit of a ‘song’ and puts that bit of ‘song’ into another ‘song’.
Some of these samples are overt, well known and easy to spot, for instance: Cypress Hill’s seminal hit (excuse the pun) ‘Hits From the Bong’ samples Dusty Springfield’s ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, and there’s a bit from Blades of Glory in ‘N*ggas in Paris’ by Jay-Z and Kanye West. However, some producers and artists delve into complete obscurity to find the weirdest and most wonderful samples to set them above the rest. Here at EVILTWIN, we’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 Sample Originals that you might not have spotted.
1. Michael McDonald - ‘I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near)’
[Sample begins at 0:00]
Warren G feat. Nate Dogg - ‘Regulate’
This wonderful song from Michael McDonald’s 1982 solo album If That’s What It Takes (his first away from The Doobie Brothers), was sampled in the unreasonably incredible classic from 1994, ‘Regulate’ by Warren G featuring Nate Dogg. Arguably the greatest song of all time, ‘Regulate’ heavily samples McDonald’s velvety slow-jam to great effect.
Although the songs differ in content and concept, one thing is for certain: Mike, Warren and Nate were definitely all just out for some fine-ass honeys.
2. Luiz Eca - ‘Pra Dizer Adeus’
[Sample begins at 2:53]
Task Force feat. Braintax & Jehst - ‘Cosmic Gypsies’
In my opinion, this is probably one of the best examples of sampling in the history of the tradition. Produced by Braintax, this truly shows the mastery of a producer who has been able to listen to an entire piece of music and pick out the exact 8 bar phrase that would make an undeniably iconic UK Hip Hop track. Mad props yo.
3. Dexter Wansel - ‘Voyager’
[Sample begins at 1:07]
Kendrick Lamar - ‘Blow My High (Members Only)’
If we’re going to talk about obscure sampling, Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Blow My High’ definitely deserves a mention. This incredible and mad 70s jazz/funk track by Dexter Wansel, slowed down around 40-50 BPM somehow creates the perfect hip hop jam without any other edits.
4. Penderosa Twins - ‘Bound’
[Sample begins at 0:00]
Kanye West - ‘Bound 2’
Kanye’s ‘Bound 2’ is probably one of the most talked about songs of the last year and we all know why... No it’s not because of his mad, cocaine-fantasy of a video (complete with nipple-less wife and white stallions), it’s due to the wonderful comeback of Pederosa Twins ‘Bound’ into popular music.
5. Herbie Hancock - ‘Jessica’
[Sample begins at 0:03]
Mobb Deep - ‘Shook Ones Part II’
This belongs here more out of respect than anything else. ‘Shook Ones Part II’ is where Hip Hop and Jazz royalty meet. Both the sampler and the sampled are outstanding in their own right, and together are sublime.
