Your Mum Misses Deal Real + Remembers Fly-Lo Fondly…

September 13, 2008

Ha, classic.

Hol’ tight ol’ girl Charlie for taunting me with over the net with some allegedly compromising video footage. Safe from a sex-tape scandal, it’s now revealed to be Flying Lotus’ in-store mini-gig at Deal Real (legendary London Hip-Hop shop, tragically forced to close by greedy scumbag Carnaby St. landlords) last Summer where I was goin’ buckwild like an Parkinsons clown and trying to film/photograph simultaneously. Got nabbed behaving ’nuff fruity.

Respect to all the Deal Realists, Steve Ellison himself, plus all major league feminine faces- one great evening in June. Hip-Hop unifying. Ill memory.

Unfortunately even this video cannot quite convey the energy and crowd love erupting for the duration of the entire set, particularly when ‘Accordion’ enraptured the spot. Hyper-wiggin’.

In case you try out me, I’ll hold onto international anonymity; and merely say the words…

…cherry-bombin’.

Various Assets – Not For Sale Vol. 4 (Red Bull Music Academy 2007 CD Snippets)

September 8, 2008

Couldn’t stay holdin’ onto these priceless numbers now could I? Such innovative, refreshing, avant-minded music is churned out annually at the Red Bull Music Academy; I really must Solid Snake stealth sneak up into that motherfucker one day, a few little taps on the Korgs and MPCs and I gaurantee you I’ll end up remixing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ into a talismanic, new-age, glitch-hop jingle.

The Jake One + Muhsinah collaboration here is outstanding; what an adorably eccentric creature she is, defiant of Rn’B songwriting banalities. Now if only I could get the whole damn CD (non-purchase exclusive industry shit they say), so take a-quarter-of-a-damn-disc and get you some wings (forgive this inevitable carbonated soft-drink punchline).

Props to Universoul for the goodies.

Burial – Burial Remixes + B-Sides

September 8, 2008

I’ve beseeched and petitioned (in the comfort of my own blog) that Burial’s astounding ‘Untrue’ duly win the Mercury Music Prize 2008 (this week), nuffin’ long. I genuinely believe it’s one of the most significant, spiritually relevant sonic masterpieces released during our generation (previously posted by Your Mum here) from a young Londoners perspective.

While we patiently wait for accolades to be allocated correctly I thought I’d distribute this mini-compilation of remixes and rarities by one’s current favourite producer amongst the British musical landscape.

If asked why I so profoundly love Burial’s sound, my response would be simple: it sounds like home & how I feel every night in this city.

P.S. Burn those fascists at The Sun newspaper (that’s a brouhaha begging Brit tabloid for my international reader’s enlightenment) for baiting up the enigma. I had faith in the geezer’s prior decision to stay a low-key, visually anonymous, clandestine force causing audiences to focus solely on the music. In his own words, “i wanted to be unknown because i just want it to be all about the tunes.”

Word to Croydon concealment.

DJ Chris Read – The Diary

September 8, 2008

Posted for sheer perseverance alone. Keeping the art of turntabilism alive. No sweatin’ techniques.

A long time in the making and much talked about, “The Diary” (World’s Greatest Rap Megamix) is finally here;  a chronological mix of the genre’s landmark recordings by order of release from 1979-2007.  801 records in the blend!

Yes, that’s 801 relentless classics, spanning 1979 to 2007, chronologically steel wheeled, in under 77 minutes. It’s nothing short of historical. Then again, if this isn’t part of your history- it’s nothing less than educational.

Epic achievement. Hol’ tight the colossus DJ Chris Read for reachin’ out.

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.

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)

Photobucket

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!

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).

U-N-I – Fried Chicken & Watermelon

August 5, 2008

These guys, are a bit like, a slightly better (dressed) version of Frank-N-Dank.

Sufficient enough mixtape that I haven’t been in a rush to post (now 8 months after acquisition), then I felt it’s notable for 2 utterly outstanding cuts you’ll be needing in your life very much if you’re currently devoid of them: ‘Castlevania’ is one of my gorilla-thumping, vertebrate-snapping, 8-bit, Nintendo-beat bangers of ‘08. And ‘Beautiful Day’ shimmers so lustrously with Summery boom-bap glory it almost suppresses my usual misanthropy and cheers me up, a little.

Fonzworth Bentley feat. Andre 3000, Sa-Ra & Kanye West – Everybody

July 17, 2008

I rarely post single drops…

…but then anything with Andre is momentous (and has been since Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik and ATLiens; I direct this subtle jibe at the sprouting 3 Stacks helmet-hoppers of late who’ve only just caught on… 15 years later). He is arguably the greatest Southern emcee in this culture’s history, and by far one of the most consistent.

(Far Overdue) MTV Hottest MCs In The Game Article

The video which also features a speech impediment (Kan)Yeezy despite bare minimal track input is widespread in blogland, yet ’twas a mission finding the mp3 so this one’s for you inexpert net marauders. To the trained ear this sounds like a rip direct from the video, but at the least it’s pod-worthy. Hol’ tight till I cop that crystal 320kpb shit (audio-geek wank material).

Love the sophistifunk bounce on this joint; those Sa-Ra vintage synthesizers are on point aswell.

What I personally wouldn’t give to slide up Ice Cold to a booty-meat maiden in the club and spout “Shawty you killin’ me hard with them lady pants/ Simple elegance would be better when you dance/ Chest to the sun with a thoroughbred stance/ Ya galloped to the rhythms of a native drum chant…” Shucks. Only in Cupid Valentino’s universe.

The Future Sounds of Soul Music…

July 11, 2008

Let your speakers ripple on the emerging influx of spacey, forward-thinking, progressive, slightly off-kilter, bugged-out, psychadelic, acid-Rn’B, electro-funk, soul music… or as I sometimes refer to it, Soultronica.

After a stagnant decline in the last decade (starting off tenaciously with the emerging Neo-Soul trend in the late 90s which by now seems to have deteriorated), you’ll be forced admit it’s a very exciting time for Black music. As some artists of that era struggle to maintain an athletic relevance (e.g. Musiq’s corny arse, lyrically Lloyd/R. Kelly’esque new Crunk-n’-B single ‘Radio‘ which complete with Atlanta strip-club synths, is perchance an un-wise career move as it wreaks of commercial desperation and could severely repel his unanimous core fanbase); others such as Erykah Badu embrace the offspring of this Rainbow Child generation by injecting the sound of these seeds into her latest LP alongside her own vintage sonance (i.e. ‘My People’, ‘Twinkle’, ‘Master Teacher’).

I also believe this sound I’m trying to characterize lies affectionately somewhere between…

Point A:
Photobucket

A Funk come New Wave god of ‘the Minneapolis sound’.

&

Point B:
Photobucket
A pioneering Hip-Hop prophet of ‘the Detroit sound’.

Maybe also what we’re seeing is greater than the categorization of soul music itself- as a growing number of Black artists refuse to be pigeonholed in an effort to reject mainstream mundanity and draw back the eclectic, imaginative light under which many great Black musicians have been illuminated: Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Funkadelic, George Clinton, Parliament, Prince, Joan Armatrading, Tracey Chapman, Tina Turner and most recently even Outkast to name but a few of the conspicuous ones.

The next wave is here- are you listening? (Don’t turn around in 2 years and act like I didn’t tell you so).

-J*Davey – Beauty In Distortion/Land of The Lost [2008]

As a primary example of this burgeoning genre, I assure you the following debut offering by percussive LA duo J*Davey is the most fearless and exciting soul(tronica) album of 2008; unafraid to fortify influences that suggest a hybrid of the Eurythmics crossbred with J-Dilla and even acclimatize some of these sonics to contemporary pop music (as illustrated on ‘Mister Mister’) and yet build lush, magnetic soundscapes such as ‘Enterception’ that make your heart float on a bed of protons, whilst not forgetting to emphasise one of groups key strengths- Miss Jack Davey’s labia dripping sensuality- via ‘No More’.

I believe out of any Soultronica act that has modish appeal to crack the mainstream, it could very well be J*Davey. But will those fucking record label pussies market/promote this shit right (keeping in mind they are signed to a major like Warner)? Well both Beauty In Distortion and Land of The Lost had been individually floating around the bootleg circut for the last year (I been bumpin’ since late ’07) and were only officially released this month as a double-disc package, so perhaps it’s too late for this record to seize the industry though a potential sophmore effort (no news yet) could definitely spell a landmark breakthrough. Time will tell.

Also, on a slightly less theoretical note… Jack Davey herself (bar the androgynous name) is so sexy it actually hurts my face.

Your Mum Says Listen to… Burial – Untrue

Name one album with which you can shuck-out (dance/gun-finger-wave) to, cry to, ride the back of the night bus to and sleep to…?

It’s ironic that in the record industry, for all it’s muscle and millions, one of the most mesmerizing and tour de force albums of 2007 came from an anonymous brere’ somewhere in South London. Question is, will those trendy bastards recognize this at the Mercury Music Prize this year?

To be quite honest, I’d never quite heard a 2 Step record quite ominously orchestral as Archangel which haunts like a dejected ghost stalking your local church rave. The more I’ve listened, the more I’m convinced the song is born out of an agonizing heartbreak the composer’s been subjected to; perversely pitch-bent lines as “couldn’t be alone…tell me how could you…but I trust(ed) you…” almost possess the listener forcing them to confront their own iniquity with the relentless repetition.

Untrue should (in a decade from now) be distinguished as that pivotal moment Dub-Step becomes a higher art form stabbing your soul with the handle of electronic-pulse paintbrushes and butchered vocal samples that bleed a cryptic narrative of disenchantment. The production over the 13 tracks is so densely tailored into a sonic whole (where alot of UK Grime/Dub-Step/Garage artists have failed to achieve when it comes to actually CRAFTING albums with an expert sense of control), the enigmatic Burial sets his artistry apart from anyone else in the field. There are layers, textures, anomalies and detail that will require attention far beyond your first listen.

It’s gloomy, unsettling, ethereal and above all else the sound of my city: London. I might even go to the lengths of saying this is the most beautiful dance-based long player I’ve ever heard. Don’t bloody sleep on it…sleep WITH it.
