I find early careers of bands that later became big and filled arenas and stadiums very exciting. It’s fascinating to discover how amateurish they were or surprisingly professional even from the start. I would call it Music Archeology, where all of a sudden new details appear or rather been dug up by passionate fans to […]
“The Revolutionist” was first released under the name J-Love & Ric Nice feat. Guru and under the title “Behold”. Guru then released the track on his fourth studio album outside of Gang Starr as Baldhead Slick & da Click. Now the title was changed to “The Revolutionist”. But the version/mix I love (the first of the YouTube videos here on this page.), is found on a bootleg 12″ under the Gang Starr name and also here called “The Revolutionist”.
8/10 … Mr. Gaye had one of the most amazing voices in the history of soul music, but unfortunately with a tormented soul, that we can properly put on his fucked up father. A father that couldn’t give his son praise for his accomplishments, a cross-dressing pastor that gave his son shit for not making ”gods” music 😡, and ultimately killed him the day before Marvin would turn 45. May he rot in his christian hell forever and ever.
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.
9/10 … I just love this album, both for nostalgic reasons and that it has simple, yet amazing rock and roll tracks with just that touch of dirty rawness I love. ”Hard Luck Woman” I could do without, it feels like a poor attempt to make something for the radio and top charts and a hope to repeat the success with previous albums ”Beth”. But the other nine tracks are all classics.
Underground Resistance (commonly abbreviated to UR) are a musical collective from Detroit, Michigan, United States. Producing primarily Detroit techno since 1990 with a grungy four-track musical aesthetic, they are also renowned for their militant political and anti-corporate ethos. First formed in 1989 by “Mad” Mike Banks, Jeff Mills, and Robert Hood. UR related the aesthetics of early Detroit Techno to the social, political, and economic circumstances which followed on from Reagan-era inner-city […]
”Look at all these slave masters, posin’ on yo’ dollar” … On “JU$T,” Run The Jewels deliver some hard hitting lyrics attacking the money system and the injustice that comes with it. Let’s face it, capitalism isn’t the same as democracy. Democracy is everyone equal rights, and that’s not what a capitalist society delivers. If you can afford two lawyers when charged with something, of course you have an advantage compared to someone living in the projects with no money.
9/10 … It’s been a loooooong time since I heard an album that emidettly when it’s over I put it on again and again and again…
“State of the Union” is their new aggressive and simply fantastic track. Produced by DJ Premier, it’s “a fiery return to the frontlines as they take on Donald Trump and his fascist regime,” according to a new press release. It continues: “An unflinching statement about the destruction the current administration has unleashed on the country and its people, ‘State of the Union (STFU)’ speaks truth to power while urging people to fight against racism, injustice and oppression with their vote.”
For me a new discovery, a duo consisting of Seven Shawn (Cousin of K-Def) and John Doe (Cousin of Marley Marl). They had a short career during the mid 1990’s where they released three 12” and also recorded one album that never got released. They came to my attention when I heard the brilliant title track from the groups […]
8/10 … Wu-Tang Clan is my all-time favourite hip hop act and Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon and GZA are all on my top 10 list of favourite rappers…..
After the murder of George Floyd, We the 99% of the people MUST join together, no matter what your skincolour, gender, age, sexuality are. We have had enough with the killing of black people. This is NOT a right vs. left question, this is a ”we the 99%”, that are ruled by the few psychopaths […]
Don’t much to say about this one lyricswise, but here are the mighty Redman showing his greatness with more or less just one long flow. This is one of these rare tracks that I can listen to repeat over and over again without getting tired of it. And it was only released on a mixtape back in 2014 …..
On a sunny summerday, or more precise on the 11th of August 1973 at 1520 Sedgwick Ave, South Bronx, New York. DJ Kool (Clive Campbell) Herc’s Back To School Jam spawned the culture that we now know as Hip-Hop. This all started when his younger sister, Cindy Campbell, became inspired to earn extra cash for […]
