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.

My Favourite 5 Records of 2008 are:
1. Yaw – Where Would You Be
2. Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul
3. Illa J – All Good
5. Erykah Badu – The Healer
5. Kanye West – Love Lockdown

 

Please take a quick moment to share your own favourite tracks of the year with us in the comments section of this post.


So, without further ado, light up a head & headphones on, ‘Now That’s What I Call Music Two-Thousand-&-Eight’…

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

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…

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…”

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.

Madlib The Beat Konducta – WLIB AM King Of The Wigflip

September 21, 2008

And what a buckshot way to ring in my 100th post.

If you’re a head, you’ll understand the importance of this release. Madlib is one of the greatest producers in Hip-Hop, ever, ‘period’. A legitimate genius who dedicates his every waking hour to the creation of noise.

This is his long-anticipated opus for BBE’s ‘Beat Generation’ series (following suit to Jay Dee’s legendary producer-driven-emcee-ridden BBE addition ‘Welcome To Detroit’ in 2001).

Yes, it is yet another Mind Altering Demented Lessons In Beats. The rawness is irrepressible, with such a devil-may-care clutter of sound puzzles, tropical psychosis, shermed out bass, Blaxploitation-lifted grooves, eccentric anomalies, coarse vinyl crackles and hard hits that indicates no crate has been left unturned or MPC left functional. No one so sadistically mutilates and leaves a break’s entrails all over the track like Otis Jackson Jr.

Though a part of me still feels it’s not his most arresting work (am I the only one who’s disappointed by the unconvincing Murs collabo?), between track 8 and 16 it does feels like warp-dimensional classic territory. It’s just I think Lib is exemplary of Hip-Hop without restraint (recently resulting in an offspring of amazing new age Dilla/Madlib inspired producers), and he could of taken it to that next level in a way even his most devoted followers wouldn’t expect (regardless of Stones Throw labelling this as “his most straightforward neck-snapping Hip-Hop album to date”). Hypnotic Lib (as with Erykah Badu’s breathtaking ‘The Healer’ earlier this year) has always been my favourite style of Lib.

Still I do wanna get all hyper-masculine and slap a sissy every time I hear boisterous Guilty on ‘Go’ spitting “Oh you high now? I laugh at that/ I must be on Punk’d, where Ashton at?”

And ‘Drink Up’ is all of you lots new two-steppin’ dance song.

Out 30th of September, you can pre-order through Stones Throw or the Play UK link i’ve provided at the bottom of the post.

Little Dragon – Infinite Love

September 21, 2008

I’ve just been sent over this track by gracious Geek Escort (Infinite Love right back at you).

It’s a brand new Little Dragon song done exclusively for a new Cartier ad campaign.

More quirky, bouncing Euro-Soultronica with a chilled Nu Jazz nonchalantness.

Their self-titled debut album was one of the most gradually addictive (general consensus from all the heads I’ve put onto it) and perhaps overlooked of 2007. I’ve maintained that they could easily break mainstream, so I suggest you jump on this immediately before a band of Twiggy-clad trendies from Hoxton and Brick Lane claim ownership of your Smörgåsbord.

And don’t sleep on the Swedes, they’re rising again fast.

Jesse Boykins III – Dopamine: My Life On My Back

September 20, 2008

What are you having sex to tonight? Mind if I make a recommendation?

While we’re busy waiting for D’Angelo (a musical hero/martyr of mine) to put the coca plant down and apply fingers to Fender- I suggest you all observe the ascension of 23 year old Brooklyn/Chi-Town’s gifted Jesse Boykins III. His debut EP, an ode to the chemical that makes one fall in love or form addictions, was entirely written, produced, engineered and mixed by the 5-octave ranged prodigy (who despite his age, wearing canerows and being confined to the Contemporary R&B categorisation for it, is as far from Lloyd as is Boris Yeltsin).

There’s a rich, hazy-dream, Neo-Soul aura reminiscent here of Raheem DeVaughn and Dwele’s early work and I adore how the lax trumpet weaves in and out of tracks. I bugged out and started making lecherous, erotic mouth contortions when I first heard ‘Sobriety’ five months ago; I also found relation to the visceral, poetic quality of the songwriting that’s as tender as the last sensuous touch to plague the mind after a heartbreak.

My homegirl Rah informs me exclusively Jesse’s debut album ‘Fake It Till U Make It’ is dropping shortly and he’ll be performing live dates in the UK to promote the release some time in the Autumn.

Right now, I sense this kid got next.

And in regards to all the prior fuckery this week, I’m staying resilient and trying a new system whereby I only source 2 or 3 tracks per set for my readers benefit (it’s the best I can do). Thank you for all the e-mails, they keeps me as equally inspired as the sounds comin’ out one’s speaker.

One love and respect to any original mp3 sources + connects.

Black Milk – Give The Drummer Sum

September 20, 2008

Give ya Mother some…

“I already gave the Summer some, I guess it’s the Winter’s turn”, to quote Hov exactly.

First Black Milk single from the forthcoming LP ‘Tronics’, October 20th/28th.

A frantic funk drum pattern, espionage horns, subtle sci-fi effects, a helium hook and don’t trip on that trumpet bridge: the Milk flows on point.

Afta-1 – Aftathought Vol. 1

September 17, 2008

Eyes wanting closure, head begging rest; yet duty calls and bloody blogging prevails.

I’m lying in bed right now having this soaring sensory experience bumping Californian electronic/experimental Hip-Hop producer Afta-1’s debut instrumental LP with my headphones fully engaged. In comparison to the fresh hoards of “Glitch-Hop” aspirants, this stands out as one of the most Soulful palettes I’ve heard with heavier emphasis on melody and a less mechanized perversion of the groove. Still there’s tingles, twitches, head-nodders, euthermic bass and even an industrial sensuality if there can be such a thing.

In short, these compositions flow seamlessly like a volcanic spring oozing blunt-scented perfume which forms an estuary around your dome that you can backstroke in. And if analogies aren’t your bag, then lie down and just play the damn thing with the lights off.

It’s mood music. Swim.

Raphael Saadiq – The Way I See It

September 13, 2008

It’s a vision to craft something authentic that shows sublime love for a bygone era- and it’s a vision perfectly realised.

Vintage heaven in surround-sound. The strings, the percussion, the harmonies, arrangements, echoes, bass guitars and the conviction of it all… makes me straight up wanna fall in love right now.

Ray-Ray’s goin’ on like a legend.

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

September 11, 2008

Suprise motherlovers.

Shi-it, I even intend to drop Part 2 and Part 3 before the month’s out. I’m submerged in dope audio right now like Eddie Murphy with frisbee pussies in Delirious. You don’t mind do you?

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 and respect to any original mp3 sources + connects.
