Your Mum’s Outta Time ’09 Misstapes.

January 12, 2010

Since when did I look like I wasn’t in the business of making epics for you?

109 joints to kiss ’09 farewell, across 3 track-packs. (Admittedly I’m 2 weeks late, but music is love, love takes time.)

Comprised of:

-Songs lying around from last year’s mixtape potentials folders that I never got to put out (hence the coinage ‘MISStape’- witty enough?)

-Tracks collated from mid-November to the very end of December since my last drop.

-The odd uber-random gem from the Noughties here n’ there as a nod to this bygone era (I was going through some vintage folders from my teen years, never one to be stingy, i.e. unreleased Jaylib joint ‘Follow Me’, hard to find rarity fo’ ya).

Usually leave these alphabetical, but this time spent 3 and half weeks arranging & re-arranging (so thematically & sonically I’ve moulded these editions to be about love & time, whilst you should still be able to dance spastically or vibe sweetly or have the sexy sex or thug out a wee bit or just cry to it). So, honour Your Mum, listen to that sh*t in order please.

By the end of Feb or early March, I’ll have the next one/s ready. Aight my lovers?

Aight.

Your Mum’s Winter of Disc-Content.

November 4, 2009

Suprise. I just came out of retirement.

Sorry I was away so long. Life’s a maelstrom. I guess the following tapes scored that a bit (as my pod is my bible).

July to November 2009 catch-up my people in time for the Winter blues & reds.

Crafted with care, consideration & an undying c**tishness, for you.

“You should call me (mum dukes) uncle,
I understand,
I’m back by popular demaaaaaaaand.”- (Pharrell on ‘Popeyes’)

Your Mum Loves Skillet.

July 8, 2009

My boy Skillet from back when. This geezer deserves to become a UK Hip-Hop legend. Haha.

Your Mum’s Summer Ménage à Trois

June 17, 2009

Hello darling. Was I missed?

Pardon me for it having been a little while since we last touched… base.

I hope a threesome compensates well for your insatiable desire.

23 is the magic number per session.

My 69 all for you.

Sounds for the Summer days, nights & twilights all mixed up like our head.

Come, let us nut…

Your Mum’s Phat Titz JANUARY ‘09 Edition Mixtape PART 1

January 8, 2009

Atleast I always compensate wholesomely for my lateness, right?

Hardest tape of 2009 already. Bumper pack. And one’s barely even begun. Had to call in a few industry favours to pull a couple major exclusives out the potatoe sack too (alongside the usually bangin’ bevy).

So watch out for a couple of these names/joints/sounds over the coming era, and don’t allege a dude wasn’t putting you on from way before the jump off jumped off.

My real music heads & newbies to the blog, commit to discovering more from the downloaded artists your less familiar with. And stay spreadin’ the word. Viva we viral.

Much love to Your Mum’s supreme, sexy faithful. 

P.S. Headphones on.

Or we can go medieval, with spears, shanks & hammers…!” 

I Bootlegged Your Mum’s Mastertape 2008

December 23, 2008

Take away women, take away London mayoral elections, take away being high in a humungous 24 hour Tesco with rabid munchies trying to decide which sustenance to purchase; the hardest decision of the year was this right here. What are the most essential tracks of the year? These are mine.

Many honourable mentions I couldn’t include, but then I intended this to be 18 tracks, then that spilled into 30, which morphed into 45, until finally I knew I had to stop the buck at 58 for ’08. But it’s taken me the last 16 turbulent days to compile this meticulously crafted playlist (see if you can catch the sonic flow, I really need to get disc jockeying already) of the songs that define a time, place and generation in 2008 from my own aural favourites. I can’t speak for absolutely everyone, but I tried my best.

As for genres? Scan the set list. Call it a spectrum. We bump without barriers.

My ethos throughout: to marry exceptional Pop and mainstream with the most revivifying  Neo-Alternative and underground in the world today, and I refuse to be forced into segregating these two presumed opposing allocations. Snobs can suck a rubber johnny dummy, but then again so can ignorant commersh mugs who stay sleeping soullessly.

Regardless, Your (compassionate) Mum takes both to her bosom in mentoring. As for those with Open Mind, I facking love you (no gushing), because your love’s been as much motivation as mine to keep posting mixtapes on the low when the cyber-right-wingers rendered us near dormant back in September.

DJs, A&Rs, and individuals who work in the music industry yet remain a little wet behind the ears- particularly in Britain- get on your job before I hijack your offices & show you how to serve your vocation properly. Your self-puppetry make me very angry sometimes (no super-emo intended).

Respect to those DJs and A&Rs who have been in contact with me this year and taken note/passed on to others the more unknown or upcoming sounds + artists I’ve offered up, I see there’s still some decent cogs trying to spin influence inside the system. Lord knows, the Black Music industry especially needs assistance because there’s no major label in this country that understands how to market it intelligently. Same goes for the States, feeding us formulas. Yet with this selection I hope to prove there’s still a great deal of revival & progression in the air if not always on the airwaves.

Radio 1 or 1Xtra or Choice or one of you’s, holla at me yo (ibootleggedyourmum@gmail.com). I’ll school ‘em like a John Peel for the ASBO generation!

Anyway, enough mission statements out of me.

Your Mum’s Anthem:

Video: Illa J – All Good (Prod. by Jay Dee a.k.a. J-Dilla)

“Set your mind free, let your mind free,
That’s the past, don’t remind me,
This the present, and that’s the future,
No (negative energy) I will mute ya,
Only positive energies surround me,
Only, open minds around me,
Only, free spirits around me,
I let my vision guide me,
And, I let the rhythm find me,
I don’t panic I just work it out,
Plan A, let’s do it,
We got shit to do, let’s get to it,
It’s all good, that’s what Dilla said,
Get your shine on, get that bread…                   

…By the way, this is for those with a purpose,
And souls that make music with a purpose,
I’m tryna’ bring the underground to the surface.”

AM90 Presents Kissey Asplund in Stockholm

November 11, 2008

As a minor favour for the wonderful Kyri at R2 Records, Nike and radio producer Becky Jacobs I thought I’d just drop this podcast featuring Your Mum’s dearest, Kissey Asplund. It’s predominantly vox-pop, though guaranteed to enlighten of the young lady’s future manoeuvers alongside other avant-garde individuals.

Both the stunning ‘Silverlake’ and sombre ‘Snowfall’ are available to download by clicking —> here.

 Photobucket

When the Air Max launched in 1987, it was a revolution. It became an instant classic, on and off the track.

Three years later this legacy led to the Air Max 90, which took its original concept literally to the max. The frame around the air was designed to add support but was brightly coloured to bring even more attention to the radical design of visible air. You couldn’t miss it.

Over time, the Air Max 90 evolved from a lightweight running shoe into original expressions of style on different playgrounds, at different latitudes. It was an energy that couldn’t have been predicted. The Air Max 90 eventually became an icon adapted by athletes, performers and artists.

The AM90 Sound is the documentary of this journey, a tribute to a true icon. Legendary photographer Shawn Mortensen traveled across Europe, intercepting (or following) the frequencies of eight young music talents who share the Air Max 90 attitude in a genuine and personal way. From Paris (Sefyu) to Berlin (F.R. + Rampa), from Rome (Rodion) to Stockholm (Kissey Asplund), London (Maniac), Barcelona (Golden Bug), Amsterdam (Shinedoe), up to Moscow (Mujuice): each city with a different style, voice and landscape: Each artist a different soundtrack.

In this AM90 Presents, Swedish signer and musician Kissey Asplund takes us on an audio tour of Stockholm, where we hear from collaborators, friends and even hear from Kissey’s dad! Kissey fills us in on the experimental vibe to her vocals and the motivations behind the ethereal musical collage of Neo Soul, Abstract Broken Beat, Jazz and Deep House that makes up the Kissey style. Plus, we get a guided tour around her bedroom studio and all the kit she used to build her AM90 dedicated track, ‘Silverlake’. Legendary portrait photographer, Shawn Mortensen was on hand to document the process in celluloid and presents his experience of the artist and the city from behind the lens in his ‘Snapshot’ feature.

Props to the aforementioned. And all/any uber-sexy Europeans.

Your Mum Believes…

November 5, 2008

I just had to mark this moment.

It’s around 6am in London.

You know why I’m up & you know what I’ve followed…

Was this the first Hip-Hop election? If so, I think Hip-Hop won.

My highest respect and admiration goes out to those of you who stood in line for hours (yes, I’ve been moved and I saw the images of our cousins across the puddle) to unanimously express yourself through democracy. Understand that you did that for us too and I have heartfelt hopes this’ll be a beacon for my people in London and other UK cities, especially those from ethnic or disadvantaged backgrounds by psychologically encouraging them to stop f**kin’ giving in and really persevere in this country against both explicit and closet bigotry.

I only ever want things to be like the way we here love our music: Progressive.

And Fantasticunt couldn’t come up with a more customary manner for Your Mum’s offspring to celebrate than to give you one of the tightest joints, off now one of my favourite LPs of this decade (‘The Renaissance’ replay counts is THAT severe), by a most beloved artist… the ORIGINAL flip with epic intro from perhaps the greatest politician we’ve ever witnessed. Please don’t let us down Barack.

This one’s for MY generation…

Your Mum’s Phat Titz OCTOBER ‘08 Edition Mixtape PART 3

October 31, 2008

Halloween Halloween. Hurray for the Devil and Dracula, poor bastards only get one official night a year.

If you’d any idea how boggling it’s been to compile the third volume of bangers & beauties for October. In the space of 3 days new Q-Tip masterwork ‘The Renaissance’ and Illa J’s Dilla-doctrine ‘Yancey Boys’ descended from Heaven as winged classics (impossible feat in this age of corrupt science and lost faiths) and I had to make the near insurmountable choice of selecting only 1 joint per set for your following presentation.

My own vital criteria for these tapes must be met though or else shit’ll just get outta control, trust me, as I fall upon/sift though hundreds of new songs + dozens of albums every month looking for the prime cut (aswell as combing a couple older pieces for a little hark back). Still I hope I’ve picked the sweetest cherry off each of those aforementioned LPs. Let me know if you disagree, if you have your own favourite. Aswell as always letting a brother know which joints got you buggin’ out the most even if you simply leave the artist/s and track name/s in the comments.

Oh & for the record, Foreign Exchange’s Leave It All Behind and Black Milk’s ‘Tronic’ are f**king tremendous aswell. October 2008: astonishing month for fresh long players from old favourites, thankfully devoid of the usual sophmore or veteran let downs. In fact, hasn’t this year just been incredible for next-level music and evolving sounds?

I go to bed content this very moment, and by the next installment hope we (the world) will have a new Black (technically Beige or Taupe) President and not a crazy b*tch in office one heartbeat from the button tryna’ blow up Russia. My American readers and listeners, make us UK heads proud and put in a vote on behalf of your humble sound-servant Fantasticunt.

Your Mum’s Phat Titz OCTOBER ‘08 Edition Mixtape PART 1

October 10, 2008

It may have to be a strictly mixtape affair for a little while as I lay low from the cyber-pigs (like being forced into exile and occasionally sending back an emblem of hope to the people, *cue dramatic score*).

Expect approximately 3 volumes a month, on average 30 elite jawns per drop. I spend a long time compiling a finely-balanced, wholesome mixture so be sure Your Mum’s still dedicated to keeping her heads across the galaxy well fed. Vowed.

Your Mum’s Battle Continues…

September 29, 2008

As she sits on some cyber-McCarthyist’s blacklist ready to be regularly targeted, they found an excuse to shut her down again a few days ago (this time because of the Lupe Fiasco ‘Paris, Tokyo’ Remix that was obviously intended for dispersal through the blogs, what fools).

For that and my absence over the last few days I apologise to the loyal legion. I literally had to beg to get the blog back online or atleast visible though my capability to post wasn’t restored until today. It’s not actually WordPress’ fault (respect goes out to the noble WordPress homie who helped me out over the last few days), they’re just heavily pressurised to enforce this bullshit by individuals like Jeremy Banks, The (gung-ho) Head of Anti-Piracy.

Now you’ve already heard my complaints before, so if you want to examine the opposition- how’s this for a fucking world exclusive, suckahs, time to bait them up…

I’m going to highlight or underline any statements, claims or wording I find laughable…

“Dear Sir/Madam,

I am contacting you on behalf of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) and the record companies it represents. The IFPI is a trade association that represents over 1,400 major and independent record companies in the US and internationally who create, manufacture and distribute sound recordings (the “IFPI Represented Companies”).

Under penalty of perjury, we submit that we are authorized to act on behalf of the IFPI Represented Companies in matters involving the infringement of their sound recordings, including enforcing their copyrights and common law rights on the Internet.

We have learned that your WordPress.com service is hosting the above blog pages on your network. The blogs referred to are offering direct links to files containing sound recordings for other users to download, including sound recordings by the artists Oasis, T.I., Daniel Powter, Snow Patrol and Kanye West. The copyright in these sound recordings is owned or exclusively controlled by certain IFPI Represented Companies.

We have a good faith belief that the above-described activity is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

We assert that the information in this notification is accurate, based upon the data available to us.

We are asking for your immediate assistance in stopping this unauthorized activity. Specifically, we request that you remove the infringing links from your system or that you disable access to the infringing links, and that you inform the blog operator(s) of the illegality of his or her conduct.

We also note that under WordPress.com’s Terms of Service, Automattic, Inc. will, in appropriate circumstances, terminate or deny access to and use of the Website (as defined in the WordPress.com Terms of Service) by repeat infringers of copyright.

Our top priority is to prevent the continued availability of the IFPI Represented Companies’ content on the internet. Unauthorized copies of sound recordings that are freely available, especially pre-release recordings, cause substantial damage to the IFPI Represented Companies every hour and day they remain available. In sending a notice in this form, as required by Automattic, Inc., we are seeking to ensure that infringing content is removed from the internet as quickly as possible through your
cooperation. However, please note that we do not admit that we or the IFPI Represented Companies are responsible for detecting infringing material and notifying you of it.

We also do not admit
that you are within the protection of the DMCA safe harbors or that prompt removal of links according to this notice is sufficient for you to avoid potential liability under applicable copyright
laws, though it may mitigate your exposure.

You should understand that this letter constitutes notice to you that this site operator(s) may be liable for the infringing activity occurring on your service. In addition, your company may also be liable for any resulting infringement. This notice does not constitute a waiver of any right to recover damages incurred by virtue of any such unauthorized activities, and such rights as well as claims for other relief are expressly reserved.

These guys are worse than Team America: World Police. How out of synch with the system and even the artist’s own strategies can this waste-organisation possibly be? I’m glad they’re based in London, I think I’m going to have to engage in conflict or atleast go knocking on some glass panels.

Do the rest of you see what I’m dealing with now? Gimmie a few days. I’ve got a fresh Your Mum’s Phat Titz September Edition PART 3 mixtape with 33 tracks just sitting here begging to be whored to the masses. Hol’ tight, I gotchu’.

Chima Anya – King Of The Swingers (Jungle VIP) [Prod. by Hudson Mohawke]

September 24, 2008

Another world exclusive (smugly gettin’ used to these).

In his own words, “Hip-Hop has evolved. I grew a beard for this shit.”

Rising London emcee Chima Anya (of duo GTA) shot me over his cocky bars-for-bar assault over a barnstorming Hud-Mo heater. Official son. Pure hot rocks.

From Chima’s forthcoming mixtape joyfully titled ‘Everything’s Shit’, dropping(s) soon enough.

And would you believe that by day Chima’s in the medical profession? Ha, the secret lives of rappers. Hol’ tight Doc, pimp nurses and push that penicillin.

Jay Scarlett – Future Sounds For My Classic Generation

September 24, 2008

Whispered to a couple o’ my close heads yesterday that I was intending to unveil a midweek world exclusive today.

I kid not.

This is a fresh-off-the-stove melting pot (not single-track, individual mp3s) masterminded by tastemaker Jay Scarlett of the internationally renowned Beat Dimensions movement: champions of the bold, brazen, progressive and fearless future of music.

Those of you who copped Jay and Cinnaman’s Beat Dimensions Vol. 1 courtesy of us will know what to anticipate: a seamless selection of spacey, bugged out, glitched-up, forehead-knockin’, ultramodern Soul, Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Grime and other Electronic hybrids alongside classic, organic vibes. This man has his fingers on the pulse of these evolving genres (if one can even box them like that which I doubt). You may want to listen in, in dread of being left behind…

This compilation was recently completed in private conjunction with Reebok (and otherwise may not have seen the light of day) though I’m notified it’s getting pushed for a wider drop later this month. Disc jockeys, promoters, bloggites, audiophiles, forum dwellers, honour Your Mum: get this out there as far as possible, make the world pay attention to that next generation.

Props going out to my source for the fantastic voyage.

U-N-I + Film School Rejekts Double Drop

September 24, 2008

2 dope joints just dropped over at 2 Dope Boyz and warranted immediate post (plus the end of the month mixtape to be unleashed in 7 days is already 30 stonkin’ tracks full and it’s giving me a selectah-migraine).

First ‘Beautiful Day’, then ‘Castlevania’ and now a third outstanding U-N-I jawn to drop, chaps are on a roll & I say bollocks to this daft notion of “All Hipster-Hop Is Homo” fabricated by e-thugs and aged puritans (you’re worse than Republicans). The jeans don’t make the music. Dope and whack in every sub-culture. But just listen to the snare they kick it with…

Honestly, I’ve never heard of these cats, but 1. That’s how the net viral spiral starts. 2. No traces of Mel B or Geri Halliwell rapping on it. 3. Great beat, cold rhymes n’ flows. 4. I sorta study film and have idle dreams of becoming a film-maker. So ya know. Fitting.

Stacy Epps – The Awakening

September 23, 2008

Wow.

Spacey Stacey delivered.

She really, really, delivered. The way Epps aerially veers between spiritualist vocalism, outer-body poetics, convulsing grooves and a paranormal beat cavity with boom-bap for a terrestrial heartbeat (with Apex, Amdex, Flying Lotus, S1, Muhsinah, Everett James, Nick Speed and Slugabed all behind the boards). Avant Garde Soul comes a step closer to it’s requiem for a future.

‘Floatin’ is already one of the top 5 songs of the year, if I find a single person contradicting that I’ll stab their brain with their nose-bone like Ballerina P. The rest of the album is now joining the higher tier of my (obsessive compulsive) mental ranking system.

It’s no secret why Lib runs with this girl- she’s on a higher plain.

“Passin’ clouds passin’ you passin’ me by,
Passionately we can be so high,
Heavens are over the sea,
Gravity can’t hold us down, baby…”

Exile – DCAPATatE

September 23, 2008

And the night doesn’t stop as we descend further into madness.

Ill rarity just dropped on me: mind-blowing Exile instrumental only available on a 2007 compilation floating off the coast of Barcelona(?)

Hard hats on, the atmosphere on this could scrape your scalps off. The fact I’m high and listening to this simultaneously doesn’t help either. THIS is a lesson in beat-building.

Props to DeeJay (Low End Theory in LA).

THIS POST HAS BEEN MARKED PRIVATE BY WORDPRESS.COM STAFF IN RESPONSE TO A DMCA COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT NOTICE Lupe Fiasco – Paris, Tokyo (Remixes)

September 22, 2008

For the record, THIS was my favourite song of 2007 even from the moment I heard crap-quality YouTube live footage of it’s first performed unveiling late last Summer.

I said back then (and I paraphrase), it’s like etheral Pharcyde vibes + boyish Souls of Mischief flows: a perfect throwback to early Leftcoast and I fly away on it every time.

The remix is decent, bit late, but decent (mastered poorly though).  Pharrell ego-trips it (though I like the “Neptune’s trident” quip). Q-Tip firmly belonged on this beat though, that’s relative.

Nonetheless the additional Jazz/Lounge reworking is the real gem here. Where’s badman Richard Cheese when you need him?

The Long Lost – Woebegone (Flying Lotus Remixes)

September 22, 2008

Two trippy new remixes. Well, ‘Luckiest Charm’ is a couple months aged but I much prefer it to the other; I love when Fly-Lo dabbles in Brazilian.

The Long Lost = Laura Darlington + husband Alfred Darlington (you’ll know him as Daedelus).

The original ‘Woebegone’ should be out on Ninja Tune at the end of the month.

Props to Alex at All Young Kings for sending them through.

Kissey Asplund – Silverlake

September 22, 2008

Adorable Miss. Asplund is one of my breakthrough artists of 2008 with her futuristic Soul debut ‘Plethora’ (shouts to my duke DJ Cavalry for puttin’ me on that earlier this year, and all the heads I had hooked on it consequential to that). Not sure why I have to keep repeating, “don’t sleep on the Swedes”.

The new single ‘Silverlake’ and it’s B-side ‘Snowfall’ are produced by Dorian Concept (with artwork from Piet Parra) exclusively for Nike’s AM90 launch campaign, and they’re both quite simply spellbinding. It excites me to hear artists challenging the status quo as Kissey does. It’s like the rebirth of Trip-Hop’s most intoxicating aspects.

Respects to Nike for having the balls (product placement pun intended) to put this ill sista on. It’s a wise move if they’re looking to tap into a market of progressive music-orientated fashionistas.

Drops today Oct 22nd as a limited 12″ vinyl, and digitally November 3rd.

Props to Kyri at R2 Records and Chris Philips at Choice FM.

J-Rawls – A Tribute To The Beatnuts

September 22, 2008

Just been shot over this brand new exclusive J-Rawls joint from the forthcoming Liquid Crystals Project Vol. 2 (dropping in Europe this week, and the US in October).

Photobucket

I’m intensely diggin’ the fly, jazzy, reinterpretation of the classic Beatnuts bumper ‘Off The Books’. Rawls has a knack for honey-dripping melodies (evident on such early works as his production of Blackstar’s heartwarming ‘Brown Skin Lady’).

Props to Rah over at soulBEAUTIFUL, holdin’ it down for international Soul and Hip-Hop artists touring in the UK. Hit them up if you require intelligent distribution, promotion & event management in the UK. They handle Eric Roberson and Miles Bonney amongst others as clients and let’s be honest, SB’s got London’s Soul community locked. Plus they come recommended courtesy of… well, me.
