Your Mum’s Phat Titz August ‘08 Edition Mixtape

August 31, 2008

Who’s-good-to-you-like-i’m-good-to-you?

Tough bleedin’ month, I’ve been forced to ante up but I couldn’t cut that fool, expanding the formerly 20-track selection all the way to an epic 31 tracks. And 31 is conservative since I’d accrued a hoard of 50+ stupendous songs for you this August and counting as of 8am this mornings (new Guilty Simpson/Eric Lau, MF Doom & Hudson Mohawke jawns in the pocket but too late for the tape, unless I get some light begging in the comments you’ll have to wait till next month disciples). Condensation is a bitch.

Audio bombardment has become unavoidable in the digital age so I strongly believe there needs to be protocol in the listening experience: one must take time to let the sounds absorb. So take 31, value them like your first popped cherry all over again, and come again.

And I quote previous paragraphs…

Expect untamed, unrestricted, multi-genre, ear-canal adventures on board my narcissistic sense of selectah-ship; I might throw in a little old shit, rare shit, unreleased shit, random shit, but mostly new + exclusive shit– ultimately rest assured it’s always bangers galore.

Usual specifications apply: this is a free, individual, track-by-track mp3 selection all wrapped up pretty in a .rar folder. Just click, download, unzip…

One love + respect to all original sources & connects.

P.S. According to my forseeable schedules, new Common, Murs & Madlib LPs dropping this September. Your Mum, she’s major.

Bloc Party – Mercury

August 29, 2008

Shizer. Meant to do this 19 days ago.

The brand spanking (19 day old) single from my favourite British band of the last 5 years (‘Silent Alarm’ was an under-rated Indie classic) warrants a sporadic post.

I’ve always loved the climactic temprement of their song structures with ‘Mercury’ showing further advancement into 21st century New Wave as perhaps the precursor to a more experimental third album (‘Intimacy’ arriving late October). Here garage-rock riffs submit to a livid carnival of uber-Grime electronics making Kele’s brazen, banshee, rebel-cry knife both the stuttering arrangement, and listener. He’s still one of the most distinct, enlivening Indie-Rock vocalists this country’s produced in a long time, and no I’m not just saying that because I’m all pro-ethnic n’ shit, christ.

(Go brown man go.)

Illmind – New Blap City

August 29, 2008

I’m domestically obligated to post anything that has the word ‘Blap’ in it. It’s a London fing.

Though admittedly, I think I’ve slept on New Jersey producer Illmind (frequent collaborator with cats from Justus League such as Little Brother, aswell as Strange Fruit Project and Symbolyc One a.k.a. S1) and only now fully awoken. On the juxtaposing side of things, he’s also in-house producer for 50 Cent and the other Guerillas. Versatile geezer.

A conspicuously West Coast exodus on this impressive instrumental LP with emphasis on skillful sequencing, P-Funk distilled richness, blunt-burning bass grooves, thick kicks and whirling, psychedelic keyboard nuances that’d create thirst for a 40 ounce. To put it frankly, The Game’s new (lackluster) endeavor ‘L.A.X.’ was in grave need of Illmind (he’ll never exceed the ‘The Documentary’ in my opinion).

Oh & he’s also a Pilipino; I’m aware how proud the Philly amigos I know get when they’ve a representative in, well, any sector. Hol’ tight my thriller in Manilas, this one’s for you.

Onra – Chionoiser

August 29, 2008

I love that beat fanatics and thump-addicts are congregating in droves upside Your Mum. Thank you for all your e-mails. Excuse the sentimental suckah shit, though I’ve been quite inspired to persist with the blog, share musical wavelength and impart imprudent musings. Fantasticunt takes you to his bosom.

So download links, discussion, heads-ups, praise, adoration, the likeminded, rabid audio obsessives, freaks, geeks, Bloods, Crips, booty, lewd proposals, affable trojan viruses posing as Latvian sluts, jilted lovers, gardening tips and death threats- I welcome it all via ibootleggedyourmum@gmail.com. Offers of matrimony non-applicable.

Now, floodlights on a fine, French export: Onra (also one-half of futurebeat Hip-Hop production duo Byron & Onra). He fiddles solely with vintage Vietnamese pop record samples for this entire beat tape and churns out Orient-eccentric vignettes even the forefather Madlib would be relatively pleased with.

‘The Anthem’ (gaining popularity by featuring on a Coca Cola commercial in the States, which must be major corporate figures by the way) will rouse, ‘Relax In Mui Ne’ will relax, and it’s all a sunny, napalm sodden morning in Saigon smoking skunk with Colonel Kurtz.

Word to Brando.

DJ Premier – Beats That Collected Dust

August 28, 2008

Which fool allowed these beats to “collect dust”? You’ve got a substantial percentage of East Coast Hip-Hop output at its most stagnant in the 25+ great years of this art form; years after year of mediocre releases and disposable, uninspired work, yet purportedly our divine-handed lord Preem has these instant classics collecting crusty skin cells.

Jigga should secrete swagger over ‘Sing Like Bilal’, Redman should go exessive and raw over ‘Mysterious’, Nas should go self-retrospective over ‘Dadaa’, Jadakiss should go street-reflective over ‘Dink’, Busta should go animated over ‘Waaaaaa’, Cassidy should go hardbody bar for bar over ‘Droop’. Automatic masterpieces for the people! Who’s fuckin’ with that? I’ll kill you.

Forgive my dogged idealisms, let the blog bastard dream.

Nonetheless, hearing a tape of unreleased Primo percolates through my brain as the epitome of bliss. No one fondles a break to make a head ejaculate like this immortal. G.O.A.T.

On an additional note, I’m sincerely and devotedly hoping the homie Saigon, the boy Termanology and maybe even the kid Corey Gunz can revive NY and with effort and intelligence CRAFT CLASSICS AGAIN LIKE, YES, THE EAST COAST RENAISSANCE OF THE MID-GODDAMN-90S. Sigh, leave us living in the past for you provide us little to live for in the present.

Slipknot – All Hope Is Gone

August 28, 2008

Theoretically, Hip-Hop could learn from Slipknot’s steez. No soft filler shit, keep it coming unstoppably harder and harder.

Tough to appreciate for some, personally it wasn’t until I surrendered to repeat listenings of ‘Wait & Bleed’ and ‘Spit It Out’ at the age of 15 that I was left so flabbergasted by the cacophony of noise and yet awestruck at the sheer dynamic of their duel custom percussion (that’s two drummers with two extensively-modified kits simultaneously manifesting the most suffocating, time-signature devastating thwacking you’ll hear in your life). It’s the equivalent of Rodney King receiving a battering by Pontius Pilate’s centurions; the affect of which I’ll say is undeniably brilliant.

On ‘All Hope Is Gone’, they experiment even further with their own aggression and the principle elements of the group’s alpha and omega by incorporating the rawest, darkest, most feral aspects of their self-titled debut, the follow-up ‘Iowa’ and their last ‘Vol. 3: Subliminal Verses’ to conjure up one of the most brutal albums I’ve heard. Keepin’ it real son! Misanthropy, Nihilism, rage, alienation, and psychopathy as standard. Additionally, the sheer, unscaled level of thrash here is enough to make people forget they’re waiting on a new Metallica set.

Relating back to my original point now, it’s as faithful to their own genre as it is loyal to their core fanbase and ultimately undaunted. Slipknot keep it realer than most, and as a music lover/obsessive who’s constantly let down by many fickle, self-contradictory, inconsistent Hip-Hop fall-offs, from a subjective point of view I can appreciate their artistic integrity.

Hol’ tight fellow maggots and misfits. I need to cop one of those new edition masks and terrorise the fuck outta my gran with it.

Exit Records & Steve Spacek Present – Black Pocket The Album

August 28, 2008

Hurrah bitches! Batting for the home team, I can proudly advocate vocalist/producer Steve Spacek as a United Kingdom legend: an original pre & post-millenial pioneer of electronic and progressive Soul music (‘Soultronica’ I insist, vainly re-enforcing usage).

Alongside Edmund Cavill (Ed Spacek) and Morgan Zarate (Morgan Spacek) he formed the groundbreaking electro-soul band Spacek: once hailed as “the Radiohead of Soul”. The experimentalism of backbone Steve Spacek himself implanted the seeds of soulful expansion and influenced dozens of space-funk and futurebeat musicians currently astro-rockin’ our pods and laptops right now… in hindsight the groups LPs ‘Curvatia’ (2001) and ‘Vintage Hi-Tech’ (2003) were the definition of what one would discern as ahead of the times.

The new project is Black Pocket: an experi-instru-mental Blacktronic soul hodgepodge of exclusive re-interpretations for Exit Records back catalogue of underground (notably Drum n’ Bass) classics. Steve yet again raises another set of (Blighty) V fingers to the notion of boundaries/limitations within black music. I preferred his 2005 solo ‘Spaceshift’, but this is a decent, relaxed, self-assured effort from the statesman that grows on the listener given the right ambience. Respect to sir, though I would have preferred a great deal more of his honeyed Mayfield-styled vocal (present only on cyber-sexy ‘You’re A Sta’) all over this to really complete the hallucinatory vision presented.

Illa J – Illa J EP (2007)

August 28, 2008

Pardon me for being in a Latoyah Jackson state of mind, I had hasty reservations about Dilla’s younger sibling from detecting a few too many clips and excerpts of little homie consistently name-dropping his elder (as if to propel off the fraternal factor more so than his own carvings and musicianship). Then compassion kicked in and I thought, 1. He’s young. 2. Blood is blood. 3. These are our heroes. And frankly I couldn’t give a damn as long as Illa honours the Yancey legacy by making-shit-thump and pushing envelopes for this culture. It’s his birthright, we expect nothing less.

Pressure, demands and all crosses-to-carry aside, I dug out the 21 year old beat-builder/emcee’s 2007 debut EP. And realistically, neither product or producer suck, at all. His rhythms reverberate in signature Detroit quintessence and he’s orally average but fairly entertaining (in the same sufficient way you cannot deny Jaylib or the majority of Dilla’s regional collaborators were/are on the mic), leaving mandatory boxes ticked and ears tickled. Thus far showing promise, I await baby pa’s progression.

And now, I make that demo circulate like Spacek with those Ben Franklins (a currency issue I never quite understood since Steve is from Clapham).

Illa J – We Here (Prod. by J-Dilla)

This leaked a couple days back and completely funked my noggin up. Instant classic! I’m already envisioning my two-step shuck out jig next Feb when J-Dilla Saved My Life at Cargo and all other tribute raves return to London town. Young-blood’s flowing and crooning (heavily improved from his ’07 EP) over an amazing brand new/technically old Jay Dee gem from the vaults From the- wait for it…. [quote from xlr8r.com new article]

In tribute to his late older brother, Detroit hip-hop legend J Dilla, up-and-coming producer John “Illa J” Yancey has dubbed his forthcoming debut album ‘Yancey Boys’.

As previously noted, the album features the younger Yancey [going] over beats made by his older brother that cover the years between 1995 and 1998 and were never used. After a recent move from Detroit to Los Angeles, Illa set to work recording the release, which he named after the studio in which it was made. The album is set to drop in November.

Cue myself crapping underwear. My people, you recognise that’s the period between ‘Labcabincalifornia’ and ‘The Love Movement’ right? Holy bludclart Mutty Ranks!

Daru & Rena – Feel The Love

August 27, 2008

I inadvertently found this whilst looking for something completely different altogether (I think it was a song by Bjork so I’m not sure how the hell the two correlate). To my bonny suprise, it contained a number I’d be searching months for and knew not the name of (now revealed to be ‘Lonely Nights’). Actually wait, no, it’s ‘The Roots Dilla Spirit Mix’ of that particular joint on their MySpace that I desperately need, but I’ll still claim fancy fuckin’ luck to gratify myself.

This is Detroit produer Daru’s recent collaboration project with singer/songwriter and sibling Rena, and quite the sturdy, stereo-stompers they are. In fact, I didn’t even know cats/kittens were still making Soul as rugged and gravel-textured as this anymore. The backbeats sound as if they were fashioned around the fiercer time period of mid 90s Eastcoast Hip-Hop: pounding boom-bap drum loops and some tremendous break chopping (all delightfully Primo-esque) as Rena’s airy vox glides and glitches along the contour of kicks and snares. You could easily be mistaken into thinking this was recorded in ’96.

If you were ever a fan of Groove Theory, or you just like your beats hard like 2 day old shit- you’ll be particularly jubilant.

Exceedingly bangin’. Only a total pussy would sleep on this.

Solange Knowles – Sol-Angel & The Hadley St. Dreams

August 27, 2008

This LP is the closest I get to feeling like a total girl (no homo).

I’d been harboring a secret affection for her Neptunes laced lead single ‘I Decided’ for the last 4 months, yet it was approximately 14 seconds into the soulfully cosmic first track that I squinted and thought, “oh shit, she’s actually onto sumthin’ here”.

Then a strange evening it was when I realised Beyonce’s picknie sister had made one of the most accomplished Pop(?) albums I’d heard in a long time. Despite common criticisms of Sol’s non-powerhouse pipe prowess, musically she renders her elder slightly insipid with this statement of stubborn personal growth and deviation from the wishy-washy, spineless contemporary Rn’B genre. Time to abandon unjust comparisons.

And suddenly in front of you all, I’m incapable of denying it even if I come off like a big bitches’s blouse: soaring production value (I’ve been telling people to watch out for producer Jack Splash from Plantlife a while now), sonic fluidity, loveable, catchy, harmonies, diverse pop songwriting and above all else satisfying tunes perfectly crafted for radios and rides through the Riviera- all prominent here when other commercial Black artists severely fail with their hollow sets and Heinz Baked Bean tin sounds. (Don’t worry, we all know the majors are fascists responsible for excessive cloning.)

Sol’s greatest strengths lies in the dispensing with current cliché and her adopting retro aesthetic, romping around the merriest of Motown, the energy of 70s disco, some genuine funk-soul percussion, and even extending all of that to be pacified with cutely cut down-tempo electronica (‘Cosmic Journey’ and ‘The Bird’ are quite extraordinary and on par with many of the Soultronica acts I’ve championed in the past, though minus of course the disturbingly camp trance-techno breakdown that Bilal should never have agreed to be a part of- you’ll understand what I mean when you hear it). Also, ‘Champangechroniknight-Cap’ arguably sounds as if it’s the best song her older sibling never did at the height of Bey’s solo powers during the otherwise solid ‘03 ‘Dangerously In Love’ period; a gentle dig at the label and public expectation maybe.

I may be a murky little man sometimes, but yo son, the sun shining off this disc is irresistible. All I need right now is ribbons. Lots of ribbons. And a health spa visit. And low-calorie fudge.

Samiyam – Rap Beats Vol. 1

August 27, 2008

This instrumental selection peeled my eyelids back over my domepiece and had me face the fact that Samiyam is actually a rather incredible Hip-Hop beatsmith.

Now the earliest posted Return EP was very good, yet this in comparison is, well, mighty.

From track 3 onwards I was so ensnared I had to roll up a tiny doobie and boost the skittish ear-engagement that led me to a sore collar (hol’ tight all my neck-snapping sons-of-bitches, we live for this). Whereas a growing number of Sam’s peers are turning slightly adrift in the aural obscurity of glitchy self-indulgence, here we’re yanked back into gutter as if all the space voyaging we’ve been subjected to of late was merely a distraction from the wonders being built back down on the dirt. I mean innovation is key, but I maintain that we should not squander the Soul.

Sam flaunts some fantastically peculiar breaks, daringly chopped and perverted with the underlying electronic audacity (just enough and not too much of it on this finely balanced beat tape) we’ve come to expect of a mushrooming leftcoast futurebeat generation being led by Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer and Ras G amongst a fair few others on the allied international front (Glasgow’s Hudson Mohawke and Amsterdam’s Hayzee, FS Green & Sir OJ not overlooked). We can’t deny there is a new movement here with brass balls not seen since the early days of Def Jux and Stones Throw- start paying attention.

Throughout I felt as if I was listening to an embryonic Madlib beat tape with all the raw, restless cutting, chaotic collages, sullen harmonies and subtly instilled but fundamental groove; the inspiration is clearly there and unafraid to germinate… dare I say this, he may even be the second coming.

If you like your rap beats cold yet relentlessly pushing forward, this shit is like the March of the Penguins. All they need now is a great emcee to breathe the equivalent of an Iraqi bonfire over them…

Your Mum’s Phat Titz July ’08 Edition Mixtape

August 15, 2008

I don’t intend to win any medals for tact. Fat hits, Phat Titz, oh the wonder of phonetics.

Here’s something novel and astounding that will change your life (all over again). I have all these random mp3s lying around all over the gaff; like nuggets plucked from turds, charms collated from the cesspits of the internet (one love to my sources). And I needed flexibility to bestow them bountifully amongst you starving orphans of cyber-space. So I’ve devised a 20 track selection a month scheme for your elite satisfaction.

Expect untamed, unrestricted, multi-genre, ear-canal adventures on board my narcissistic sense of selectah-ship; could be slightly old shit, rare shit, unreleased shit, random shit, but most often new shit- ultimately rest assured it’s always bangers galore.

These tapes will surely follow suit with ‘Your Mum’s Soultronica Mixtape’ and become the pixie-dust of legend. Usual specifications apply: this is a free, individual, track-by-track mp3 selection all wrapped up pretty in a .rar folder. Just click, download, unzip, then smoke, pop, snort, shoot-up and tin-foil this good shit ya godforsaken junkies…

(This is the July edition, because, well, we didn’t do a July edition. I know it’s the middle of August, but take the damn July edition and await the August edition drop at the end of the month. And so on, and so forth, every month, forever, until we all perish in a natural disaster perpetuated by rebellious machines and robots out for sole control of the Earth. Word to Laurence Fishburne.)

The Cool Kids – Pennies

August 15, 2008

By the beard of zeus! This is actually the most gulliest shit I’ve heard, in hours. Pure molten lava, peg-rollin’, punk-whistlin’ anthem shit. Ill rhymes. Iller flows. Sonics have developed. I feel Chuck & Mikey are being severely overlooked for the sake of purism. Let’s keep it moving forward.

The first single from their forthcoming LP ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’, out shortly.

Giovanca – Subway Silence

August 15, 2008

I stumbled upon this in the morning. And became embroiled in it’s whimsy (the grim, dark bastard within was slapped with a soapy flannel). Airy, bodouir-bound soul for the ripe and glamourous. Lovely stuff, from this winsome voiced and strikingly dusky young lady from Amsterdam. Christ, it’s no secret I fucking love the Dutch. Emigration, soon come, soon come.

MF Doom & Trunks Present – Unicron

August 15, 2008

Who be this undergarment-inspired fella Trunks? I only know as much as you: a Canadian emcee featured on the King Gheedora LP. I wasn’t quite expecting any rap revelations this evening, yet Trunks happens to be just that dispensing a mettlesome underground EP that surely most heads will jump on for the special herbs alone.

Unicron dropped unexpectedly like some Chris Wallace bird-shit. Fresh beats specially weeded with Metal Fingers; initially I merely skimmed with fiendish fashion to find a Doom verse much to no avail, yet was countered with a tirade of surprisingly dope dork raps delivered with sharp claws: Stan Lee, Star Wars, Clive Barker, Thor, dragons, all inclusive. Trunks is a discovery, and I’m positively paying attention now.

Nonetheless, a proportion of this shine IS pilfered by the classic (Doom studio standard) drunkard drum taps and histrionic, Lo-Fi instrumentals with breaks unmistakably retrieved from the dead-skin-celled depths of MF’s VHS collection. For all my grubby ‘Operation: Doomsday’ and ‘Mm Food’ goons, these utterly sick sounds should just about keep us at bay until the next grand solo.

Having said that, my restlessness evolves into irritation. First Lib’s resplendently laced Madvillainy Remix piece and now this Doom assembly here- how many more befitting backdrops will drop unjustly untouched by Daniel Dumile?

GZA – Pro-Tools

August 14, 2008

For all Liquid Swordmith mu’fuggahs.

The Genius is the my most beloved Clansman and amongst my Top 5 favourite emcees of all time; duke’s flow is colder than Margaret Thatcher.

When the first two cuts leaked, ‘Paper Plates’ and ‘Alphabets’ (both of which are of true Wu potency as the former’s laced by RZA and the latter by True Master), I was teetering at the possibilities of supremely sliced, raw meat audio.

Aight let’s dispense with the fraff, unfortunately it’s yet another ‘no classic’ from a veteran legend (though subtract three or four weak links, it becomes a solid effort). But it’s in possession of some undeniable bangers, and our boy Genius stays ravenous on the mic. So all my loyalists, until ‘Only Built For The Cuban Linx Part II’, willingly settle for this.

Jay-Z – Jockin’ Jay-Z (Dope Boy Fresh) (Prod. by Kanye West)

August 11, 2008

Because everytime the first Hovi The God single from an impending LP drops, it’s an event.

“That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar, somebody shoulda’ told him I’m a fucking Roc star”.

Take one part deep-frequency bassline a la ‘A Millie’, puncture it with a hard-as-gunshot drum, garnish with an 80s Rick Rubin/Run DMC style metal riff break, chop a madly infectious hook, and finally serve up drenched in S Dot audacity: what’s manifested is the mainstream rap single release of the year- diamonds in the damn air, it’s all over. And sceptics wonder why I call Kanye a genius and probably the most important Hip-Hop producer of this decade? Get the fuck outta here.

How many more anthems does Jigga need to cement his place as the greatest ARTIST in Hip-Hop music ever? He wields the most ridiculous catalogue out of any rapper in this culture’s history. I’ll jock Jay-Z to the moon and back as a standard.

Additional note: if Kanye is producing the majority if not all of Hov’s forthcoming ‘Blueprint 3’ as reports indicate (much to my own salivating all over my chin hairs), then I suggest the people brace themselves for what could be one of the Rap albums of the decade. I have faith.

Large Professor – Main Source

Not one of Extra P’s best works (though ‘Hot: Sizzling, Scorching, Torching, Blazing’ should roast a few speakers), and the flow is still reasonably mean plus he fucks with a few unexpected sonics (dope, abrasive vintage synthesizer sounds on ‘Rockin’ Hip-Hop’). Need to subtract some filler though sir.

But yo, fitted tipped & respect where respect due to one of the producer greats.

Amanda Diva – Life Experience

August 11, 2008

In June I shot a stunning Amanda Diva joint titled ‘Windows Over Harlem (Heart of The City)‘ from her upcoming mixtape ‘Foreplay’ over to a couple o’ my homeskillet girlies much to their elation; equal to my own when I’d first discovered it as I’ve had this sincere longing to see the female rap game redeemed.

She’s got a resilience reminiscent of the Blackstar era on the mic. And you know I got love for my B-Girls too.

A little later I received requests to drop her 2007 debut EP which is quite good, though I sense she’s blossomed into her style more comfortably since and I suggest we keep an iris out for Diva in the near future.

All you Kid Sister enthusiasts need to sit your neon-sporting asses the fuck out (bar Amanda’s green hat in the video which I’ll allow for I am biased).

Rest In Eternity, Isaac Hayes.

August 10, 2008

Often I hear people utter, “I can’t believe it” in reaction to a legendary artist’s passing. I think folks need to acknowledge the detail those we consider the architects of modern musical history of are now in their most precarious years- believe it please. In short my advice to you is to see these originators relay their glorious medleys when they decide to stage a live show round your way, as you don’t know if it’s your last chance to experience them. This is said because I sit here with fingertips flittering over this keyboard choked up off the fact I’ll never see Isaac live now, and that’s agonizing when you think how profoundly young men (and women) desire to be in the presence of their heroes; to glimpse greatness.

I won’t post Hayes’ most renowned and easily identifiable work, the iconic ‘Shaft’ soundtrack despite it seminally altering Black music and providing the score to the insurgence of Black-American culture in the early to mid 1970s. No, instead I’m earnestly going to post my favourite LP of his career, the 1970 Stax release ‘To Be Continued’ which is softly overlooked between 1969’s milestone ‘Hot Buttered Soul’ and 1971’s landmark ‘Shaft’. Plus as it’s all too rarely cited, I’ll declare it one of the finest Soul albums of the 20th century. Entirely arranged and orchestrated by Hayes (with instrumental assistance from The Bar Kays and The Memphis Symphony Orchestra), here’s five epic songs that overflow with the some of the most lush, sprawling philharmonics committed to wax. Oh and not forgetting that erotic, god-like gust of a voice.

To my heads that know, remember that feeling first time you heard Hayes’ epic 11 minute re-envisioning of Burt Bacharach’s ‘The Look Of Love’ on here and clocked the identical break later used for Jay-Z’s classic ‘Can I Live’…? Electrifying.

Reside with fellow angels Isaac, you are one of the forefathers of Hip-Hop and arguably the greatest musical composer of the 70s- I’ll try & make everyone aware of that.

Your Mum’s Insular Weekend Bender… Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication

August 10, 2008

Before I get into some porn (Bubble Butt BBQ with majestic turns from Jasmine Cashmere and Aurora Jolie) and a cup of tea (patriotically Tetley’s) possibly rounded off with ‘The Street Fighter’ (1974 Sonny Chiba martial arts classic); I felt a duty to my open minds to post this.

Released on the cusp of the new millennium (June ’99 to be precise), I’m unsure of weather to classify this as my favourite LPs of theirs from the Nineties (which would bring it into conflict with the ’92 opus ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’) or the Noughties (which would be chronologically erroneous and I’m the type to self-flagellate if I make any boo-boo with my music dates). Then again who gives a babbling, psychosomatic fuck, except I.

The album, is like a state of cerebral reflection within a synthetic bubble that’s about to rupture and the only thing to leak is the detrimental person inside- that’s how I hear it. I used to lie in bed at night aged 13 and let the more forlorn numbers seep into my head believing Anthony Kiedis to have the most soulful voice in Alt-Rock: like a zephyr born from aching and inability to cleanse in the clutch of self-harm, scaffolded only by John Frusciante’s affecting guitar-work and the arcane songwriting itself.

“Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you ’cause
With the birds I’ll share
With the birds I’ll share
This lonely view”

Yet frequently they still raise their arms (when there’s not a needle buried in it) and remain funky as hell, it’s quite the bi-polar record. Also produced by Rick Rubin. If you don’t know who Rick Rubin is, get the fuck out of Hip-Hop.

Damu The Fudgemunk – Overtime

August 8, 2008

Once in a cobalt moon, I hear something so skillfully archetypal that I’m reminded why I fell in love with classic Hip-Hop as it palpitated with the dust settled on its skin.

There’s two types of producers in the rap’s subterrestrial province: firstly those who pay homage to its glorious golden years yet fail to equalize the acoustic texture of those TIMELESS compositions (recognize that mixing/mastering and tools are different than they were 15 years ago and unless you calculate-to-emulate accurately with the recording techniques, you’re shit will just sound monotonous and Primos, Pete Rocks, Large Pros, RZAs, Prince Pauls, Easy Mo Bees, Buckwilds, Havocs, Diamond Ds, Q-Tips you will never be thus remaining relegated to backpacks and bootlegs amongst a sea of undistinguishable underground drones).

Then there are cats like Damu, who just quite simply from the crates to the breaks, the chops to the bass, the booms to the baps- forms a beautiful noise that feels mortal once again. Perhaps my only criticism is that I’m awaiting a inimitable, yardstick, signature sound like the greats before, yet for now this is genuine progress from the Washington DC beatsmith. The new instrumental mixtape thumps so lovely. My next request would be to have someone like CL Smooth or Brand Nubian or Lord Finesse or Poor Righteous Teachers or ED O.G. goin’ over these beats instead of the nonsense producers those stray cats be working with nowadays and the mediocre emcees (what good is dense lyricism without dynamism, personality, characteristic vocals?) present underground producers be hooking up with.

(Hol’ tight my Pinboard Blog viral thug ninja Speakz and pardon my pride when you forwarded this, I was in the know off last year’s Y Society LP; I get sensitive like a recently augmented nipple chafing against angora over my self-reliant, fanatical, musical subsistence sometimes. Allow me.)
