1. VIDEO: Disco Twins – “It Began In Astoria”

    With tomorrow’s film screening of Founding Fathers at the Maysles Cinema just around the corner we thought it pertinent to post up this vid clip by Block Exchange Films: an introduction to Queens’ hip-hop pioneers the Disco Twins that features none other than super-producer Marley Marl bigging them up as one of his all-time influences. The Disco Twins are not only prominently featured in Founding Fathers , but they are scheduled to be on hand this Thursday for the post-film Q&A. Program info here . Buy advance tix here .
