Into Soul? Check this out

Kenny Raw from Philadelphia just released his new album "Left Handed Scissors". It's full of some ridiculous Soul/Funk edits.

Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

And it's free. Can't beat that.

And if your ever in Philly, keep an eye out, you might be lucky enough to catch him spinning one of his killer funk sets at 45 rotations per minute.

Some Azymuth for ya

Working on a remix at the moment and was looking for running through my crates looking for a few small samples to finish it up. Looking through my jazz section, I stumbled across Azymuth's 1982 release, "Cascades". I had picked this up months ago, but might've only gave it one quick spin. My Madlib heads might recognize this joint off the incredible "Brasilintime" DVD that Mochilla put out a few years back.

Early April Digs

Went out on the 1st to grab some joints to listen to/chop up/stash away in the collection. Good way to start off the month.

Funkadelic - Funkadelic
Funkadelic - Let's Take it To The Stage
OutKast - Aquemini
Miles Davis - Water Babies
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Muddy Waters - Electric Mud

I needed the 2 Funkadelic joints, now I believe I have all the 70's Funkadelic branded George Clinton productions, need 2 more for Parliament, I think. I dig the early Funkadelic a lot. The tripped out bluesy, psych-rock, funky sound differs highly from the later releases and just go to show you the extent of George's genuis. The "Electric Mud" album by Muddy Waters also plays with that psychadelic sound as he had Rotary Connection as the backing band for that album. Check the back story for the making of that album, very interesting.

Then we got Miles. "Kind of Blue" and "Water Babies" To different periods in his career. I'm not super-well versed on his phases, but I dig the electric stuff the most. Which reminds me, I need his "On The Corner" album on wax. My favorite Miles album for sure (from what I've heard thus far).

Last but not least, OutKast took it even further out of this world when "Aquemini" dropped. Phew. Talk about stank. In my head this album is like late 90's evolution of that mid-70's P-Funk stuff, updated to the styles of the day - 1998 that is.

And on another note, I finishing up the music for my EP. Good stuff.
