Friday, June 2nd 2006 playlist

You gotta love hot summer-like weekends. This week has been muggy as hell, but a good one music wise... I think? I'm not sure, I've actually been digging through my collection in between rocking new DnB. You know how that goes. Busta Rhymes The Big Bang review coming SOON (I am delaying my Amit review until I get a copy of the CD version, for the full experience). Peep game...

Drum & Bass:

1> DJ Ink & Gabriel "Mood Music" [reneagade hardware]
2> Alex Perez Ft. Specific "Drive By" [progress]
3> Alpha Omega "Entities" [transmute]
4> Rufige Kru "Fear Heaven" [metalheadz]
5> Davide Carbone & Amaning "Liquidiser" [bs1]
6> Hive & Gridlok ft. D-Bridge, Silent Witness & Break "Standing Room Only" [violence]
7> Clipz "New Generation" [full cycle]
8> Mutt & Rhizone "Sin City" [creative source]
9> Desimal "After Life" [fokuz limited]
10> Pentagon "Ladybird (D.Kay Remix)" [precision breakbeat research]


1> Busta Rhymes ft. Q-Tip & Chauncey Black "You Can't Hold The Torch" [prod. by J Dilla, it revisits the Minnie Ripperton sample ATCQ used for "Lyrics To Go"... hot track!]
2> D'Angelo "Greatdayndamornin' / Booty" [off of his Grammy winning album Voodoo, I plan on sampling this track in the future. I could have said the entire album, but this one is on repeat this week.]
3> Busta Rhymes "So Hardcore" [one of my favorite Busta/J Dilla collabos... very minimal beat, Bus coming hard with the rhymes. Classic.]
4> Portishead "Biscuit" [from the first truly great album I ever purchased, Dummy, this track oozes a slow funk. The scratched "never fall in love" just makes the track golden.]
5> Headhunter "7th Curse" [new off the new dubstep/downtempo label Ascension, headed by Tech Itch and the Bristol crew H.E.N.C.H. ... if anyone has more info on them, let me know. I'm feeling this!]
6> Digital Mystikz "Walking With Jah" [is there any doubt? anytime I hear new DMZ, I'm hooked. intense dubstep vibes --- not too heavy on bass, but this is classic dub.]

That's about it for right now.

ATTENTION HIP-HOP FREELOADERS: DangerDoom and Stone's Throw have let loose a new, FREE, DOWNLOADABLE EP on the masses: "Occult Hymn". Check out the EP, Artwork, and a video here.

Also, check out downloads of the Breezeblock Old School Jungle Mixes here (shouts to DOA's Sable). There has been a big stink about Photek's non-old school jungle set, here and here. Join the fun(?).

Until next week... namaste.
