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 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…

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…”

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?

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.

“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.

Daru & Reggie B – Future Music

September 11, 2008

I’m suddenly a tad addicted to this LP; three mornings I’ve lay in bed and let it run dawn through daylight.

You may remember my palpable championing of Detroit beat-buster Daru (former drummer for Slum Village and Dwele tours; now a pad-pounding production powerhouse drawn into his element) right here. Now he’s combined Caltroit forces with rising Cali singer/songwriter Reggie B (quite the Purple disciple with that recurrent lusty rasp creeping in every so often) to run the train on your cotton-wool arse.

This be that full-bodied, nod factor, basement bounce, Hip-Hop Soul music with oscillating two-bar breaks, sparse loops that verge on thunderous, and a pinch of groove throbbing electrolysis to marry to that which is readily raw.

Daru is dangerous.

September 10, 2008

Idiosyncratically grand, yet…

…I think someone needs to give Wayne his vocoder back.

The vox effects fail to absorb like a genuine vocal would given the emotional anchor of what Kanye’s tryna convey; it makes me feel detached when really I want to become immersed in the subject in equal parts to the bass. (Sort the mastering out aswell).

Still, I await the shrill of 808 synths And further articulation of Heartbreak. December 16th.

Lyrics:
I’m not lovin’ you, the way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I’m in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
So ya never know, never never know
Never know enough, til it’s over love
Til we lose control, system overload
Screamin no no no, no no
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
See I wanna move, but can’t escape from you
So I keep it low, keep a secret code
So everybody else dont have to know

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down x 3
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I’m not lovin you, the way I wanted to
I can’t keep my cool, so I keep it true
I got somethin’ to lose, so I gotta move
I can’t keep myself, and still keep you too
So I keep in mind, when I’m on my own
Somewhere far from home, In the danger zone
How many times did it take til I finally got through
you lose, you lose
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
See I had to go, see I had to go
No more wastein time, we cant wait for life
which is wastin time, wheres the finish line

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down x 3
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I’m not lovin you, the way i wanted to
I met no one new, I got no one new
No I said im through, but got love for you
But im not lovin you, the way I wanted to
Gotta keep it goin, keep the lovin goin
Keep it on a roll, only god knows
If i be with you, baby im confused
You choose, you choose
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to
Way I got to go, I dont need you
I been on this road, too many times before
I ain’t lovin you, the way I wanted to

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
etc.
etc.
Keepin ya love locked down, you lose.

The Foreign Exchange feat. Muhsinah – Daykeeper

September 8, 2008

This just made me forget I was anxiously awaiting Kanye’s new single ‘Love Lockdown’ to drop any hour/night now.

For I’ve waited only 14 months since Kanye’s last effort, and yet 48 months (4 years) for some new material from Phonte & Nicolay. Yes, I goes & does me a bitta’ math still.

A mellow, ambient first number (featuring Your Mum’s beloved Muhsinah) signalling a broader downtempo direction for the duo’s forthcoming sophmore set ‘Leave It All Behind’ due October 14th. ‘Daykeeper’ very slightly reminds me of a stripped-down, sombre Gnarls Barkley cut; though it’s delicately hypnotic in a way that doesn’t feel forced. A song to give us company in the mornings.

Welcome back gentlemen.

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.

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.

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.

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!
