Blue Sky Black Death & Hell Razah – Razah’s Ladder Instrumentals 2007

91oTjPnefDL._SL1500_

“Our father Jacob is having a dream,“ Hell Razah recounts at the outset of the excellent Razah’s Ladder. “And in this dream he sees a ladder that’s set up on the earth, and the top of it reaches into the heaven. He say he can hail the angels of Yahweh, ascending and descending on this ladder, and when he look to the top of it, he saw the creator of the universe: Yahweh. He who is, he who was, and he who shall be.”

Over Blue Sky Black Death’s lonely saxophone, the telling of the Old Testament tale is a perfect intro for the brooding Ladder; right away, Razah establishes himself as the wise seer, tugging at his thick beard as he explains the ways of the world, as he bring us up his ladder one rung at a time.

Samples from the poorly aging Tarantino-lite Boondock Saints are awkward but easy to ignore thanks to Razah’s engaging, often cryptic lyrics, especially his oblique Judaism references. Razah, who came up with the Wu-Tang-affiliated Sunz of Man and has run solo since 2001’s When All Hell Breaks Loose, has, as far as I can tell, no explicit association with Judaism. (He says on 2004’s “What Gangstas Do”: “I injure players like Ray Lewis, vests spray through it/ Get mad cash like I’m half Jewish.”) Repeatedly, he draws an association with Jews and Israel: “I was told by wise men that the blacks was Jews/ So that made me strap up with tools”; “This for the kids outside that’s in the military/ No matter black or Israeli, they both want us buried”; “I get chills from the pain every time that I kneel/ Now my head is saying prayer for the rest of Israel”; “I’m about to blow like an ave. in Tel Aviv”; “On Shabbat we give the Most High props through hip-hop.”

That’s one of the intriguing things about hip-hop; it’s a conducive medium for a vocalist to craft a persona. Razah’s enigmatic lyrics hint at a personally cultivated, oddball belief system, and, like the best material from his former mentors in the Wu-Tang Clan, demand repeat listenings for proper deciphering.

Razah summed up the recording process, a full-album collaborative effort with the relatively new San Francisco production duo Blue Sky Black Death, as “Studio equipment, Hennessy bottles, spiritual books, sour diesel, and a box of Dutches.” Kingston and Young God of Blue Sky Black Death explained further that that they provided Razah with more beats than he could use, allowing him to pick and choose the best fits. And it shows: The production makes Razah’s mid-groove flow seem downright effortless. Razah’s Ladder makes me wonder, once again, why more emcee don’t employ the practice of the full-album collaboration.

On “Audiobigoraphy,” Razah walks us through his sojourning, small-stakes career — through busted record deals, limited-run seven-inches, flopping LPs — as much for his own fleeting posterity as for our sake. At one point he brings up a few perceived creative appropriations from his higher-profile one-time boosters — “Me and 7th did “Livin’ in Hell”/ Pressed up it independent, not knowin’ if a record would sell/ Rae and Ghost made “Heaven & Hell” while we was hearin’ it/ Meanwhile we thinkin’ it was all coincidence.” He’s not bitter — more confused, shruggingly pensive about what might have been.

Of course, the burn of watching dudes he came up with grace magazine covers and cash royalty checks that as far as Razah is concerned might well have been his will never completely fade. But the emcee has seemingly accepted his fate as a foot soldier in the campaign for quality hip-hop, independent or otherwise. This late-career period finds Razah at ease — confident, reflective, singularly focused on his music, free of resentment. As Razah’s Ladder attests, it should be a fertile one.

Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth – Mecca and the Soul Brother (Instrumentals)

Pete Rock这位号称90年代四大製作人之一的超级NB人物,除了和CL SMOOTH在90年代初期合作的专辑之外,更帮许多人製作了很多很多的好东西,掛上Pete Rock製作的名字的单曲或专辑根本就是品质的保证。笔者在逛唱片行的时候,Pete Rock的名字,是我想要购买是听与否的一个大指标,因为他太少让我失望了。他那带点爵士味的节拍,取样至jazz 或是funk的vocal声。Pete的音乐,绝对会让你一听到就上癮,他所给你的不只是让你不由自主想要跟著音乐律动,而是撼动你的心灵让你舒服到全身起鸡皮疙瘩的音乐。

Pete Rock第一次出现在音乐圈是80年代晚期在纽约的电台WBLS 的节目”In Control with Marley Marl,” 当DJ。当时节目都是在星期五还有星期六晚上播出。基於对於音乐的喜爱,pete想要精进自己的音乐功力,所以在90年代初期,Pete开始製作音乐(producing)。因为Pete是以DJ还有製作人的身分来製作音乐,所以他找了他的好朋友CL Smooth 来rap。从此之后这对拍档开创了Hip Hop音乐的历史。

91年发行EP All Souled Out ,92 年发行了Mecca & The Soul Brother 这张专辑有著两首HipHop经典名曲 They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)” 跟 “Straighten It Out.”有人如此评论这张专辑:在这80分鐘里面,你完全不会想要跳到下一首歌。甚至还有人在葬礼中放这首歌,只因为它真的完美道出了人们追忆的心情。94年Main Ingredient这张专辑发行之后,他们两个人打算独自发展自己的音乐生涯。Pete Rock接著在Loud/RCA 这个厂牌发行了他的首张个人专辑Soul Survivor , 在2001年他又与Rapster/BBE 这个厂牌合作,出了PeteStrumentals. 这张专辑。两年之后又发行了Lost and Found 。04年他推出了Soul Survivor II, 这张专辑这也是和一堆好歌手合作的专辑Pharoahe Monch, Dead Prez, Talib Kweli, 当然还有他的老拍档 C.L. Smooth.

Reks – Gery Hairs(Instrumental)

67f30b52had08816dd11a&690

专辑介绍:

“Say Goodnight”这首歌,不知道到底是不是让很多人了解他,但是倒是给我很深的印象~里面有点卡住的女声,一直回绕,在加上很有质地的说唱,这种调调挺酷的~这种质感(背景音乐都是老唱片一样被DJ进行混音,在加上自己的鼓点,配上说唱,有种说不出味道的感觉)就像一种标签一样,让我把这个来自波士顿的Rapper记住了.

这是张发自去年的专辑,今年的新专辑”More Grey Hairs”也在iTunes上开始发售了(预售?)…据说是延续,谁知道呢,我还没搞到手呢~对了,好像这位仁兄是主持人叻~~这张专辑整个风格就是像封面一样,手里拿着香槟,坐在后面灰色主调的涂鸦后,有点醉醉(究竟为什么醉的呢?鬼知道了)

1. Grey Hairs (Produced By: Blaze P)
2. The One (Produced By: Statik Selektah)

老学校的节奏Ol’ Dirty Bastard(O.D.B): Return to the 36 Chambers [Instrumentals]

袭卷东岸饶舌之霸主,堪称当今黑帮饶舌派系中最具代表的超级猛团Wu-Tang Clan(武当帮)其名下的成员更聚集多达10位大将,今天所介绍的主角Ol’ Dirty Bastard(以下简称ODB)即是旗下最头痛、最恶名昭彰,却也最有音乐创作才气的子弟兵。武当帮于’91年成军,’93 年推出深受各界好评的首张专辑「Wu-Tang 36 Chambers」后,各弟兄们便陆续化名推出个人音乐作品;ODB则选在’95年初春推出首张脱队单飞之作「Return To The 36 Chambers」,从专辑标题上不难发现他有延续Wu-Tang时期的音乐精神,更将Wu-Tang首张专辑的灵感继续恣意抒发于自己的专辑里头

98年对于Ol’ Dirty Bastard来说就是恶梦,他不断的惹出各种各样的麻烦,先是在Grammy Awards上打断Shawn Colvin的得奖感言,以此表示对于Wu-Tang Clan没有得到最佳说唱奖的不满,这也尽尽是个开始,之后他又因强奸,入室行窃,恐呵,吸毒等多项罪名而被起诉.爱惹麻烦的Ol’ Dirty Bastard,在被判刑后,竟然越狱,还去参加Wu-Tang Clan新专辑The W的发布会,虽然他只参与了其中一首歌(因为坐牢).他最终还是被警察抓回了监狱.2001年Wu-Tang Clan又发行了Iron Flag,Ol’ Dirty Bastard仍旧无法参与.就在2004年,一个消息震惊了整个美国,Ol’ Dirty Bastard因心脏病去逝,这个充满争议的天才MC走完了他的一生.但Ol’ Dirty Bastard和Wu-Tang Clan永远值得被铭记.

SOUND SCIENTISTS – INSTRUMENTALLY SOUND (2009)

sound_scientists-instrumentally_sound-2009-cover

Instrumentally Sound is the first official solo release from Trioptic of Sound Scientists. The album includes a few beats previously featured on Adult Swim, along with instrumentals used by 12 O’Clock (Brooklyn Zu) and Chi-King.

sound_scientists-instrumentally_sound-2009-back

The versatile and unexpected group, Sound Scientists (Sklex), consists of DJ/Producer Smoothbeats, Producer/Multimedia Genius Trioptic (Lex), Producer/Engineer Polygrafic and Engineer Gravity.

Band History:
The versatile and unexpected group, Sound Scientists (Sklex), consists of DJ/Producer Smoothbeats, Producer/Multimedia Genius Trioptic (Lex), Producer/Engineer Polygrafic and Engineer Gravity. We have worked with all types of artists, from hip-hop (Snipe, Kingsyze of Q-Demented, Rasheed & Juan Gotti of Dopehouse, Quite Nyce of Abstrakt, Mad-1, Phil Harmonic of Mindspit, and many more) to reggaeton (Yaga y Mackie, Redeyes and more) and more (Transistor, Marq Torien of the Bullet Boys “smmmooootthh up in yaaa”).

Trioptic grew up between Upstate NY and Southwest FL from 1983-2001. (Gravity teamed up in 1999, getting the first item to change their minds forever.. the MPC2000XL.) After 2001, it was off to the military as a digital media engineer. During his time stationed in Texas, he met up with Smoothbeats.. and so it began. Now located in Florida (as of 2005) with engineer Gravity, the hustle has ownly gotten stronger, bringing all of the hard work in Texas back to Florida.

Smoothbeats on the other hand, is a Houston-born beat junkie who has been in the game since Public Enemy were jacking for beats. He became a master of the MPC, ASR and SP1200 before there was an Ebay. Smooth (another military vet) has traveled to record and perform from Virginia to L.A. to Mexico (and hopefully Europe soon, jonies).

Polygrafic was the final element to the Sound Scientists. His musical genius with every piece of gear you set in front of him, from the MPC to the Triton, is obvious. In fact, his skill (and hustle) got him the opportunity to do the official Spurs Anthem for the winning 2003 season. Lots has changed since 2003. In the beginning of 2005, Tony Parker of the Spurs put Polygrafic onto a new level, producing for his French hip-hop label. Expect to hear more about this soon

With radio play starting out with college stations in New York, Maine and Texas… to heavy rotation on Power 106 in LA with a Twista Remix… to international airplay via radio in Puerto Rico and Mexico, our fanbase is growing fast… and we have only started.
Debut album is coming soon, the Sound Scientists are currently seeking distribution for various projects.

Interview:

Q:Why this name?
A:Sound Scientists… actually got the idea from an old test record from the 60s.

Q:Do you play live?
A:Sometimes. Shows in Vegas, San Antonio, Houston, LA… beat battles in Orlando & Miami.. plus some live radio tracks. Some of the best music is made on the spot.

Q:How do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
A:turns the whole sh*** upside down!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
depends what the contract says. Major labels mean nothing if they wanna squash your album and own all of your music.

Q:Your influences?
A:Frank Zappa, Wu-Tang and strip clubs

Q:Favorite spot?
A:San Antonio, TX

Q:Equipment used:
A:MPC2000XL, ASR-10, SP1200, Triton, Motif, ProTools HD, so much gear…Anything else…?
