MoodSwingaz Circa 2000

So after finding the 12" of "The Blessin'" online a few weeks back, I was on a hunt for the MoodSwingaz Circa 2000 EP/CD. While I saw a host of sites that had it for sale (although no "real" outlets; I got this off from someone who was selling it), it looks like no one had ripped it and thrown it online. I have a feeling this thing is rare for no good reason. In doing Google searches for the independent that put this out (KARMIS), I came up empty on a lot of shit; I also noticed on their MySpace page, they mentioned working on an album (Full Mood), which was set to drop in 2003 on Karmis, but I don't even think this came out!

Anyways, while you guys are stuck on the Freshman 10 and these other new niggas, I've been on some older shit. I go through these phases, and with Tony D's passing, its been hard to not go hunting for more NJ Hip-Hop. I'm just sad that it looks like these cats are on some kind of extended hiatus - their left of center samples (producer All Those Mutha Fuckin' REASONZ is fire on the beats), blunted flows and just overall HYPE music will have me in a zone all weekend.

See, my appreciation for the MoodSwingaz came from my college radio days, back when WPRB was THE SOURCE of new music of all genres for me. The Thursday night show "Vibes & Vapors" would play all of the fresh new ish, and I'd record it before I went to bed (well, I'd record the first part before bed, the 2nd side would get the 45 minute Maxell while I slept), and one Friday morning, on my way to school, the "Moodswingaz Anthem" smacked me right in my face. Boom bap on the beat, but what the hell was going on with that alternating humming shit in the beat?!?! And these cats are from Jersey City? I'm all about homegrown fire, but at that time, I wasn't really copping vinyl, and the CDs weren't available around me, so I lived that one tape for a while. It's gone, but now I'm in a position where I can find that rare shit (thanks, Internets), and this arriving in the post yesterday was a blessin'.

I could go into some "this track is dope, #3 is the shit" malarky, but really, the EP is like 40 minutes, and its all fire. If you dig what we now call "backpacker" shit from the late 90's, this will be right up your alley. Jersey, what?!?!?!

DOWNLOAD MoodSwingaz Circa: 2000

PS I also copped the "Primetime" CD Maxi single; that's the joint with the Cosby Show sample in it. It's a 4 track thing - once I get that, it will be uploaded as well!

EDIT MoodSwingaz "Primetime" (ft. Ace Lover): The "Primetime" CDM came in the mail, and I'm in heaven! The packaging says "Primetime" was set to drop on Full Mood, which bothers me. Where did it go!?!?

60 Channels "Counter Evolution (The Angel Remix)"

60 Channels "Counter Evolution (The Angel Remix)": Here's a cut that surfaced a month or so ago, but its (sadly) new to me. Taken from the Covert Movements (Instrumentals) release, The Angel flips a seductive cut from her 60 Channels guise inna heavy dubstep meltdown. Almost makes me want to pull out some of my old dub compilations! You'd think, with a blog titled "rock the dub", I'd be rockin' dubwise tunes on the regular... tracks like this might reignite my dub love.

Watch out for some forthcoming material from the Supa Crucial movement, including a new 60 Channels EP featuring Jhelisa, and a new instrumental LP from The Angel!

Shouts to Kevin, again, for this one!

Bassnectar's Superstylin' Smashup

To help hype their Art of Revolution tour, the Bassnectar camp has unleashed a special bootleg of Groove Armada's "Superstylin'" alongside their own instrumentals, and I must say, this shit is TOUGH!

Some tough beats to enjoy on a beautiful afternoon!

RIP Bea Arthur

Damn, I just got the news that the realest Golden Girl, Bea Aruthr, passed away at the tender age of 86. She was the butt of many a joke, and I imagine she was PAID, from syndication of The Golden Girls and her other shows. She was definitely funny. RIP to Maude.

DJ Spinna ft. Fresh Daily & Daniel Joseph "Summer Madness"

DJ Spinna ft. Fresh Daily & Daniel Joseph "Summer Madness": I dropped this in yesterday's playlist, but with the thermostat in the upper 80s today (feeling like its June out this bitch), I had to drop this. Go grab a 40 of that OE and lounge on your front porch while blasting this one. Watch out for Spinna's Sonic Smash LP, which drops on June 30th.

[video] Cee Rock 'The Fury' ft. Timid "Lyssynup!"

Been a while since I've heard some new material from Cee Rock. Good to see he's still grindin'!

Benga vs. Mims "This Is Why I'm Crunked Up"

Benga vs. Mims "This Is Why I'm Crunked Up (Shawn Livewire THUGSTEP Edit)": Here's some THUGSTEP for all of you party people out there. My boy Livewire got inspired by the various THUGSTEP refixes that DJ Nappy has done (and I've posted), and threw up a four pack of edits he's done, featuring combos like Chase & Status/Kid Cudi and Caspa/Lil' Wayne. This one works very well, but the others are just as sick. Grab them all over on Livewire's blog.

This pains me, though, b/c I have to sort out this one external by next week. Busy weekend fi me!

The Jake ft. Sene "We"

The Jake ft. Sene "We" (prod. by The Jake): The Jake has some fire sitting around, for varying reaosns. Peep the story behind this heatrocket...

Things Fall Apart Edition

I've been sitting on quite a bit of unreleased tracks, that just haven't been put out cause they never got a proper mix down or I was waiting for a feature that didn't come thru. At this point, I don't see any reason to just hold on to these tracks because for the most part the rhymes are dope, and the beats are pretty cool, (if i dont say so myself) and I'd like to share them with people who might be interested in hearing how a track comes together, and how eventually, some of them end up not getting finished.

"We" is a track that was supposed to be on my 1st ep that I put that featured Median (Justice League/JamLa), D.Rose (Soul Spazm), Rapsody (JamLa) etc. Sene had contacted me thru myspace and we did a couple tracks together, this being one of them. He actually wrote and recorded this track over night, and sent it back to me without the hook...he had an idea for the hook but he wanted to know what the sample was saying and if maybe we could get Rapsody to do the hook and a verse. I hit Rapsody up about it, and initially she agreed to do it,,,we were pretty excited about it, and I guess Sene was planning on putting the track on one of his Japan-only releases.

However, I ended up not hearing back from Rapsody about her vocals, and after a few weeks of waiting, Sene decided that maybe we should just turn up the vocal sample. I figured why not and went to bring up the beat on my computer,,,,and couldn't find the session :(...needless to say i'm pretty sure he was pissed, i was dissappointed and this promising track bit the dust. There's no hook, you can hear him put down the mic at the end of his first verse, and there's still a loose snare in there that didn't get fixed.

Ah well, Sene came thru on his verses...this would've been a dope "concious rap" track.

Things definitely fall apart...

Internal Quest & Weet "I Got This '09"

Internal Quest & Weet "I Got This '09" (prod. by Craft Beatz): This is one of those cuts that you throw on early Saturday morning and get fresh to... like, you remember that scene from Season 1 of The Wire, where D was getting ready for the day? This is the soundtrack to that. Well, it should be.

DJ-Kicks: Kemistry & Storm

Ten years ago today, the Drum & Bass community lost a true legend, DJ Kemistry. Along with DJ Storm, she helped charter a path for the Metalheadz sound, as well as for other female DJs to keep pushin' in a male-dominated genre. There's a tribute show in her memory going down on the 28th, and I was given the privilege to share this awesome mix CD that dropped not too long before her untimely passing. Remember...



01. Dom & Roland "Trauma"
02. John B "Ole"
03. Architex & DJ Loxy "Submerged"
04. Test "Fuse"
05. Digital & Spirit "Mission Accomplished"
06. DJ Die "Clear Skyz"
07. Bill Riley "Closing In"
08. Sci-Clone "Everywhere I Go"
09. Decoder "Stash"
10. Goldie "Hyaena"
11. Jonny L "Uneasy"
12. John B "Pressure"
13. Primary Motive "Venom"
14. J Majik "Space Jam"
15. Test "Static"
16. Absolute Zero & Subphonics "Code"
17. Test "Tronik Funk"

60 Channels "Ride With The Flow (Reflow Remix Redub)"

60 Channels "Ride With The Flow (Reflow Remix Redub)": Not that I consider RTD a job, but I love the position I get put into with this thing. I've been a fan of The Angel for the longest; I remember when I first copped Deep Concentration back in '98 and digging the moody vibes of "Strange Times". As I got more into Drum & Bass, I rediscovered her via her work with Jaz Klash, as well as various other output. Imagine my suprise when I'm not only hit up by her on twitter, but I also get passed her latest release, Supa Crucial Downtempo Remixes & Rarities (which you can pick up via iTunes or the Supa Crucial store), in my inbox! The cut I've posted captures the dub-wise side of the Trip-Hop I fucked with back in the day. I miss this sound - a lot; that pure genre-blending style is the perfect sound for a chilled afternoon. This project features remixes from the likes of Ming & FS, Divine Styler and DJ Drez, as well as a host of rare cuts and remixes from The Angel herself. HIGHLY recommended!

Shouts to Kevin and The Angel for hitting me up!

Icadon "Head On The Dance Floor"

Icadon "Head On The Dance Floor": Ic, you a fool for this one! I remember when I used to go to clubs on the regular, around like 1999/2000, I was in this one spot in Philly, and it went from seeing some chicks thong to these two fucking in the middle of the dance floor! I never got to live a fantasy like that, but it sounds like Ic has! Possible single material? I'd like to see the homey make a video for this one!

EDIT Ic has posted the story behind this track. That nigga cracks me up. To live his life...

Eminem "3 A.M."

Eminem "3 A.M.":Em has been on promo mode over the last week or 2, whether its the premiere of the "We Made You" video, or chopping it up with Angela Yee the other day. Mostly, we're getting decent tracks from the forthcoming Relapse album, and I must say, while this is an improvement over "We Made You", I'm just over this Eminem. We know he can flow, we know he has bars, etc.; why does he just fall back on the same themes and material? I just want to see some progression; I'd love to hear him do a concept album, kind of like A Prince Among Thieves. I guess we'll keep getting these joints... *sigh*.

Spotted over at Nah Right, salute to Rap Radar.

Bonus Beats Here's a D-12 Freestyle on Tim Westwood:

Che Grand "Walking Under Ladders"

Sorry I've only got an imeem stream link, but I do have news: Everything's Good Ugly is set to drop on July 9th, 2009! Che said that more tracks will hit his imeem page, so be on the lookout, ya dig?

And for good measure, here's a bunch of Mista Sinista videos, because his crazy animations during his routines crack me up:

Famoso Meets Dilla & Premo

The homey DJ Dutchmaster hit me with BKLYN MC Famoso's latest mixtape, where he gets it in over beats from the legendary J Dilla and the talented DJ Premier. DJ Mickey Knox hooks the whole tape up; if you are a fan of both of those producers, chances are you'll rock to this - click the pic to download!

M-Dot "You Won't Get It"

M-Dot ft. Singapore Kane & Trademarc "You Won't Get It" (prod. by Explizit One): I believe 9th Wonder flipped the same sample on the first Little Brother album; I dedicate this one to the homey SBK, who I know is a Singapore Kane fan. Nice mellow cut, for you niggas who are out there grindin' in whatever hustle you got going.

This cut will be featured on M.oney D.oesn't O.wn T.hought, M-Dot's forthcoming DJ TKO-hosted mixtape. M's album, M.usically D.riven O.ver T.ime, drops this summer!

Keelay & Zaire ft. Mario Dones "We Made It"

Keelay & Zaire ft. Mario Dones "We Made It": Straight up and down: if you aren't feeling this, your hearing needs to be checked. If you had been debating on copping Riding High, this track should make you make the right decision. With everyone gawking over Deeper Than (c)Rap, they are sleepin' on the real shit. Video coming soon!

Jibbs "$1000"

Jibbs "$1000": While I understand that he is saying that he won't work with you for anything under a G, it sounds like he is some high-price prostitute. This is from Jibbs' forthcoming mixtape, Round One, which will feature remedial bars from Lil' Boosie and Pleasure P, and drops next week.

Epiphany ft. Scotty Wu "The Come Up"

Epiphany ft. Scotty Wu "The Come Up": Piph keeps up that "can't stop, won't stop" mentality, hitting you AGAIN with an original and a remix, further letting you know that this cat isn't one to toy with. Real Dirty South on both of these - get focused!

Bonus Beats Paul Wall ft. Webbie & Epiphany "Bizzy Body (Remix)"

Azage "MVP Freestyle"

Azage "MVP Freestyle" [clean \ dirty]: Looks like Azage isn't stoppin' with his Different World mixtape; he sent over a new freestyle yesterday, rockin' over that Primo-produced "MVP" from Luda's last one. Also included the acapellas, so you can flip it into your own MVP-worthy blends!
