DJ Drama ft. Akon, Snoop Dogg & T.I. "Daydreaming":The good folks at OnSMASH just passed this one on to me. Word is this is the first single from Gangsta Grillz The Album, Part 2; I'm not as into this as I thought I'd be, but I could see the ladies winding to this one. Maybe I'm just over Akon's "singing". Keep locked to that OS post, DJs: clean/instrumental versions are on the way!

Inverse ft. Deacon "So True": From Tunji's blast... My group Inverse is dropping a free EP on New Years Day (following in the tradition of our project So Far (The Collection), which we released on the first day of '08). Here's a link to the first leak off The So True EP, the title track, featuring Deacon The Villain of CunninLynguists, and produced by Decapbeats. It's some laid back, soulful Cali groove type ish. The whole track is clean, so go ahead and throw it on air if you're feeling it.

If I still burned the sensi, I'd definitely float some greenery pon de air. Fresh cuts!

DZ "What You Won't Do For Love"

2 Comments »

DZ "What You Won't Do For Love": I really tried. I wanted to cop this release on MP3, legally. Due to what it is, though, I believe its on a limited vinyl run, which makes sense. Its part of the duality of this shit, though. Back in the day, it used to be "if you can't get it, wait until you can"; with the 'Net, shit is just instant. I can normally wait for releases until I am given them or they are widely distributed. Other times, I have to be that faucet. I've been a fan of DZ for the last few years (and he has been on FIRE in 2008)... and that Bobby Caldwell original? Shit, I have the 7" at my mom's house somewhere. Such a classic, and one of my favorite tracks out there. Enjoy this.

DJ Food "The Breaks Of Wrath"

No Comments »

DJ Food "The Breaks Of Wrath": Let me tell you a story that's like a decade old: one of my favorite mix CDs (and possible one of the greatest compilations, ever) is ColdKrushCuts, a massive two-disc soundclash between DJ Krush, Coldcut & DJ Food, throwing the headphonephunk of the Ninja Tune back catalogue at that time into two well-spun discs (DJ Krush held one disc down solo, while Coldcut & DJ Food threw the 2nd disc together). On Disc 2, there's the random DJ Food track entitled "The Breaks Of Wrath" that plays for something like two minutes that has eluded me ever since I first heard it. It's nothing more than a simple bass tone progression thrown at a bevy of bombastic beats. Listening to this cut was the highest I got before my pre-ganja days. It's got everything I needed: moody bass, beats for days and nothing else. Now, I always assumed this cut was just a dubplate they made for the mix, but I kept a search for it in my Soulseek wishlist, and this afternoon, I found out that a lone compilation (Rumpus Rooms Volume 1), which came out in 1996 (or 1997?) has this entire track, untouched, as track one of their 2nd disc! Wow. 7 minutes of funk from the DJ Food foursome (Coldcut, PC and Strictly Kev). Early Christmas gifts, forreal.

What's sad about this, however, is that no one but me will care. Oh well.

Kid Hum Fossil Fuel

1 Comment »

My boy Kid Hum has given out a free download of his album, Fossil Fuel, and it's the truth. I've actually been rocking to this all week; its a deep instrumental journey, in the vein of a J Dilla or other producers who infuse their personality into their beats - just those off-centre, funky tracks with odd samples that work so well. I'm working on a project with this, but we will get to that when I have more info on it...

If you like this and want to support, you can cop this on Christmas Day 2008 via Amazon. You can preview the entire album over on IMEEM as well. Hit up the official website for more info/details.

That Dilla's Crazy (December 2008)

1 Comment »

Last night, when I should've been working on next week's episode of rock the dub radio, I decided to fuck around and make a lil' project for delf. It came out pretty dope, and I figured, why not make this the 13th edition of my Dub Sessions mixes. This mix runs about 42 minutes long, and the main meat of it is the title: it's a blend of Richard Pryor's album, That Nigger's Crazy, which is one of my favorite Comedy albums of all-time, with J Dilla's Donuts, which is one of my favorite Hip-Hop albums of all time. I threw in the instrumental to "Fuck The Police" at an opportune time, and also started and ended the mix with two unrelated tracks that I've been fucking with for the last week or two...

That Dilla's Crazy (December 2008) (mirror)

Tracklist:

01/Sean Lennon "Photosynthesis" / Paul Mooney "Makes My Teeth White"
02/Richard Pryor vs. J Dilla "That Dilla's Crazy" (rock the dub blend)
03/N.E.R.D. "Sooner Or Later"

I have volume 14 done, just waiting on someone to drop a track before I post it. Enjoy this!

Praverb ft. Donny Goines "My Way" (prod. by Rip One) (mirror): Here's the latest leak from the homey Praverb; this time, he links up with one of the 'Net's favorite Hip-Hop MCs, Donny Goines, over a fresh Rip One track. Here's P-Viz's take on how this one came about:

This track was conceived thanks to the lovely instrumental by Rip One. The scratch hook gave me the inspiration to write about etching my own path in this hip hop game. Donny Goines delivered an awesome verse that further solidifies his role in the progression of NY hip hop.

Speaking of Goines, his album, Minute After Midnight, is out on Amaglam Digital. Cop that.

Jet Audio ft. The Kid Daytona "Lose Your Mind"

Jet Audio ft. The Kid Daytona "Lose Your Mind": I love shit like this. It's got that wild Tribe/Q-Tip vibe to the lyrics, and some beautiful sounds on the beats. Apparently there an OnSMASH-affiliated project that this will be released on. Shouts to 6th Sense for pushing me to post (he mixed this). Holla.

Go Crazy For Christmas

No Comments »

Paul McCartney with Young Jeezy & Jay-Z "Go Crazy For Christmas (JayCeeOh Edit)": The low-bee forum is THE place for quirky gems, good mixes and all sorts of other funkery. The homey JayCeeOh hooked up this blend of McCartney's "Wonderful Christmas Time" and Young Jeezy's "Go Crazy" into some sly Christmas anthem shit. It's primarily Jay's verse, which isn't bad at ALL! Drop this one unsuspecting-like.

Rich Boy ft. Polow Da Don "Drop"

Rich Boy ft. Polow Da Don "Drop" [clean / dirty]: Taken from 5 Million, Rich Boy (sellin' dat) links up with Polow Da Don for another one. Sounds like they trying to redo "A Milli"... I personally could've fucked with another "Throw Some D's", but I guess niggas have to evolve?


This has drops and shit during the chorus, too, which are hella annoying. I'm not sure if these are gonna be on the actual track or not, but I don't like 'em one bit. Keep all that contest shit in your e-mail blast, nigga!
PS Is 5 Million the name of Rich Boy's 2nd album? I'm going by what the blast says, but I thought I heard him say that the album would be titled Buried Alive?

rock the dub radio, episode 030

3 Comments »

This latest edition of rock the dub radio runs at two hours, 24 minutes. I had to... in brainstorming for this edition, I wanted to have it be strictly 2008 beats with Barack Obama speeches over top (after getting this ill MP3-CD of Obama speeches from wifey - early Christmas present FTW). After I a) realized I didn't have a lot of dope instrumentals as well as b) realizing I was getting sent some ill songs, I decided to only flip two Obama speeches, which boiled over my usual two hour time limit. So, expect to hear more "commercial" beats ("Swagga Like Us", "Get Like Me", "They Know", etc.) under his 2008 DNC Acceptance speech, with some more underground/below the radar instrumentals ("Royal Flush", "Gangsta Boy", "We Roll", etc.) under his "A More Perfect Union" speech. We also feature two new cuts from Elucid, that fresh StreetMedia, and an exclusive, hot off the press remix of Lush One & Phillipdrummond's "Reggie At The Bus-Stop", from my VA homey Perpetuum. By the way, you should cop that Music For Dope Runs album; its definitely some sick shit from this Fresh Coast duo.

Cy Yung & Centric Back 2 Lyfe: The Return Of Greatness

I dropped the original Back 2 Lyfe mixtape back in June, and got an email over the weekend to Back 2 Lyfe: The Return Of Greatness, which features 6 additional cuts that weren't on the original, and is a great prequel to Cy Yung & Centric's Back 2 Lyfe album, dropping in early 2009. Here are two tracks you can preview by themselves:

Expo "Do You Feel Like We Do?": Fresh cut from the homey Expo, flippin' some choice Peter Frampton into that flavorful funk for your Monday morning. Wake yo punk ass up! He should be a name you get familiar with... I know he's got some project with Miskeen Originals going down, among some things I can't speak on. Keep it locked to this Jersey fresh cat.
