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.

September 21, 2008

I remember the first time my boys K-Nite and Skillet cold rocked my block off playing De La’s Rock Co.Kane Flow featuring Metal Fingers back when we were 18. I’d still say to this day, that is one of the heavyweight Hip-Hop spine-snappers of this decade. Experience here…

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.

Your Mum’s Phat Titz September ‘08 Edition Mixtape PART 2

September 20, 2008

If there’s one thing my Pops taught me, it’s virtue in variety. Not sure that was a hint if I choose to become a bigamist I have his blessing, but musically I gladly indulge in everything- uninhibited- it makes my core richer. So, come get some.

Content loyalists, you know what to expect from Fantasticunt’s mixtapes by now: underground, overground, outerspace.

Click, download, unzip, bump, wig out, research the artists you’re feeling, tell ya mans dem/gally dem/all dem.

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.

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.

They Tryna’ Shut Your Mum Down Like Mahatma Ghandi.

September 18, 2008

Well isn’t this some bullshit?

After 2.5 months and 45,000+ views and alot of unexpected love and interest from complete strangers across the globe connected through a mutual fascination of dope sounds, all of which I genuinely appreciate- in the space of a fortnight I’ve been sent two DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) Copyright Infringement notices threatening to shut the blog down. Fuck that. I’ve worked harder than I ever intended to on here, to commit to the pamphleteering of great music via this blog and I refuse to let my last 92 posts disintegrate into the anal passages of cyber-space because of shook industry tactics.

I’m writing this whole thing real quick-time, so I won’t be able to cover every base in this tirade, however…

….the first post to get DMCA highlighted was Nas’ ‘Untitled’ (a.k.a. confront the fact it is and will always be ‘N****r’ no matter which sensibilities are offended), like, 2 and a half months subsequent to the rampant internet leak (which Nasty himself supported out of anti-establishmentarian revolt). But slappin’ around charges 2 and a half months after the real vital sales figures are in? Wow, you digital snitches and net combers at the label offices are doing a shit job of taking care of product.

A little over a week later I was issued another DMCA warning far more shocking and unreasonable than the first, but this time I had to laugh at how ludicrous The Man’s power-of-the-prick-wielding was: they tried to persecute me for having a download link to Kanye’s ‘Love Lockdown’ single. Gimmie a goddamn break- that single was leaked by the label (if not West himself even) for the aims of generating enormous promo and publicity (a routine ploy). The cat’s out the Louis Vuitton bag, so back off DMCA daleks, you have no business with me. Worst case scenario I thought to myself is that after the preliminary leak was the mediocre first version of ‘Love Lockdown’ and then then the superior mastered version dropped a couple days ago, that West himself issued a veto on the inferior leaks. If that is the rationale behind this, then to be honest as much I respect and deeply admire Kanye West, I should (figuratively) punch his teeth out for putting me in the line of fire when all I do is honour the man’s artistry. Perfectionism means you handle your business right first time around homie, instead of making a partisan suffer. (Still, I’ll see you at Glow In The Dark.) Yet I’m currently detecting ‘Love Lockdown’ up on dozens upon dozens of other blogs right now (ones way bigger than Your Mum), including WordPress blogs like mine- what the fuck’s all that about? Was I the only one that had this problem (feel free to comment)…? I’m going to appeal on principle alone.

Having worked in and around the music industry, I can understand some of their aggravation. On sight, to them I am the enemy of course: a sniveling, rat bastard, downloader (fair enough, but I cite having my arse credit crunched on, and I vowed to buy strictly vinyl when I start a salary) and distributor (not guilty, I don’t upload albums or singles onto the net, merely find them already circulating and re-exhibit them here). To my readers however, I’m just like them. ‘The internet generation’: a growing band of eclectics and free-thinkers. In my own mind, I’m just another arrogant blog wanker who thinks his taste is that utmost, superlative, supreme shit. Though I do try to show some level of subterranean infatuation and liberated critique for the music I want more people in the world to recognize and enjoy and it’s this campaigning (by all bloggers) that’s emancipated more musicians than ever. What, you make a little less money? Fuck you. You have more fans and an increased chance to pierce your sword into public consciousness; more people that love and worship your creative capabilities as a human being than you would have had 10 years ago. Use your acumen and capitalize on that so you can practice your craft and still live comfortably.

The above statement doesn’t just apply to major label artists, though I’m fully aware the independent grind is far more taxing. But then I’m humbled, and I’ll say it’s not my intention to hurt the smaller fish. It’s just that, not everyone is a music obsessive or avid follower. They don’t have a music blog checklist and don’t read the music publications or surf MySpace’s looking for future talent or analyze industry trends. I live for this shit. And all I’m trying to do is guide and inspire heads (particularly in my environment, I come from London, and no disrespect to my local mankind but one’s surrounded by a few fickle- but what? You don’t wanna tap the London/UK market? Everybody wants to tap the London/UK market. The pound is stronger than the dollar). Sometimes in efforts to nourish, you have to put that shit slap bang on their plate. People are afraid of or apathetic to approach/purchase independent music; it’s not frequently tangible in the way mainstream music is so that can breed ignorance, but I’m always insisting that does not make it any less thrilling for the head, heart, soul n’ feet. The sounds of the future are on here, not on your radio or television. So I put it on the plate. And let them eat that good shit. Until they become addicted. Then they become fiends, fans, lovers and real enthusiasts that spread the message on (replacing the advertisement that’s not available to smaller artists) and hopefully turn long-term supporters. It’s a perpetual cycle. It’s viral marketing. It’s THE new business model. Personally, I make little to nothing out of it, not a penny just personal satisfaction. I received an eloquent and civilized e-mail from the manager of one of the artists I’d put up and he distinguished “the love that underpins all these posts” foremost. I give and ask for nothing less.

I’ve said it before, the labels are in pain and they’re perishing but then every corporate middleman has his day (and imminent sunset). And though I could sit here behind the safety of a screen spouting anarchic declarations like “it’s time the artists and performers took the power back!” I also know it’s never that simple, and everybody fashions their own circumstance and major label investment hasn’t always been a poisoned chalice. Plus I have friends who work in the industry as A&Rs and managers, good people, who believe they can make a difference from the inside. So my respects to them, if not necessarily their overseers.

Still if you want to talk ethics- buy a fucking t-shirt and a ticket to the show. Your favourite artists make more money that way. Ask them.

But if you think legally digitally downloading your favourite artist’s material is ethical, don’t believe the hype. It costs the label fuck-all for somebody to download an album (no manufacturing, shipping or overhead costs of any kind) yet the artists still makes less money than if you bought a physical copy of their album (this may be more the case with Majors than Independents however). Why do people legally download music? Have we become THAT vegetated in our convenient electric bubbles? That’s the most pathetic disservice to music etiquette. Leave your homes and buy something you can feel in the palm of your hands with artwork you can ogle for its iconography (or atleast buy it off the net). Downloading 3 tracks off an album for 79p each is lackadaisical, pseudo-moralistic crap because you’re killing the craft of an album anyway. Stop that half-arsed shit.

I’d love to go really in depth, insightful and bring out the political and economic facts and figures to fill all the holes in my rant. But I’m looking at the clock right now thinking I’ll save that for my university dissertation instead of bombarding your 17 inch monitors with a self-indulgent polemic (as I’ve done so for the last ten paragraphs). I’ll probably think of more shit later on the bus home, but for now this is just a blunt diary entry.

Yet, fret not. I practically live by an audio-samurai code of “What else in life really matters except for music anyway?” It’s all I live for really. So, hol’ tight, Your Mum does her best.

If next thing you know, the blog gets (love) lockdown’ed and simply vanishes forever. I may set up a new private blog that is invite only. Whatever the outcome, just keep ibootleggedyourmum@gmail.com up in your domepiece, hit me up and I’ll tell you what’s going down. I can’t let down my (on average) 1000 readers a day. That’s miniscule by Nah Right or 2dopeboyz standards, but it means alot to me at any rate.

Right now I may have to take some time off from blogging (and I had some amazing stuff to put up this week) simply because I need to re-strategize how I’m going to spread the melodious gospel truth on here in a way that doesn’t risk me having to lose all my efforts because of The Man and his insecurity. I hope I have the reader’s support whatever I choose to do on here next. And thanks, reading your feedback e-mails always reminds me of how rewarding this endeavour’s been. I’ll still try and keep our now esteemed mixtapes coming weekly if I can.

Plus, you do realise Summer’s coming to an end, and well maybe it’s time I went back to university and, gee, I dunno, got a girlfriend or something.

Anyway, nuffin’ long.

Sincerely yours for the moment, Don Juan DeFantasticunt.

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.

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’.

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.

I rarely do this, though if you wish to decipher the laments of a robot…

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.

Yikes.

Late Of The Pier – Fantasy Black Channel

September 10, 2008

Current contenders for my favourite new/emerging British band of the year so far…

(I have to keep conjuring up these categories, it gives my life some pretentious level of order & meaning. Leave me.)

The Nottinghamshire four-piece have aligned themselves with Erol Alkan for the entire debut. It’s borderline bonkers. Or atleast better than the Mystery Jet’s album.

How do you take one of my cherished Rn’B songs (concerning fem-masturbation) from the teen years and entirely resurrect the sexy beast?

The Glitch-Hop-Dub-Grime-Timbaland of the United Kingdom, Hud Mo, adds further testament to his future greatness…

Raphael Saadiq feat. Jay-Z- Oh Girl (Remix)

September 9, 2008

Saadiq’s truly grown into optimum genius with age. The new throwback project (‘The Way I See It’, dropping Tuesday next week!) is destined to meet the yearning of Soul’s devoted far and wide.

You realise this song (available here courtesy of Your Mum) was already an instant classical classic right?

And then Lord Hov jumped on it (carrying a couple o’ those ’96 flow syllables 21 seconds in too for sweet measure). Bam.

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.

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.

With such au courant trailblazers as Kissey Asplund, Little Dragon and Koop amongst dozens others, it’s evident the Swedes have the “Progressive Urban” sector on smash. Regardless, I’ll still approach Swedish Pop with a hint of precaution.

Right, iron those American Apparel gladrags, you have my blessing for this one.

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.)
