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.

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…
