Frequencies: J.Dilla, Nas, Slaughterhouse

Salutations, true believers!

For this first post, I had three very specific joints I wanted to cover from Dilla, Nas & Slaughterhouse. All are significant releases that I believe warrant a little examination.

    J.DillaDetroit Game featuring Chuck Inglish, Boldy V (Ruff Draft; prod: J.Dilla)

Dilla’s legacy will forever be marred by good – yet misplaced – intentions.

Typically, any new Dilla record can be sampled a minute and a half at a time, beats first. After hearing this posthumous release – assembled by Jonathan Taylor and Maureen Yancey – the standouts are obvious and this is one of them. The biggest opportunity on the album is talent and this is one joint that hurdles that as Chuck Inglish (The Cool Kids) and Boldy V manage to ride Dilla’s low end theory – and its well-placed David Essex sample – with a comfortable cadence that would sit well on any of DIlla’s older records. “Not everyone can rap,” exclaims Inglish on his first verse and that’s just in general. It’s even harder to find an emcee that can properly rap over a Dilla beat.
4/5

    NasThe Don (Def Jam; prod: Salaam Remi, The Internz, Heavy D)

Nasir Jones has been all about grand entrances lately.

He intro-ed his latest, Life is Good, with five standout joints – including this one – to really whet your appetite. The title track to Hip Hop is Dead, God Son‘s Made You Look, Bridging the Gap off Street’s Disciple and his collaborative effort with Damian Marley, As We Enter, were heatseekers tasked with reintegrating Nas into the collective rap consciousness and with album 10 hitting #1 this past week, it appears Nas is definitely onto something. Rap has always been a young man’s game but when artists figure out how to successfully transition their debuts into careers it’s a testament to their talent – and Nas has managed to do it with straightforward boom bap.
5/5

    SlaughterhouseHammer Dance (El-P Remix) (Shady; prod: araabMUZIK, El-P)

El-producto is buzzing hard right now after the release of his collaboration with Killer Mike so when this dropped, the anticipation was heavy.

He arms this first single off Welcome to the Slaughterhouse with a barrage of “shock and awe” that really elevate the track. The drums and percussion hit harder than a Hulk smash and are complemented by a menacing chord buzz that manages to avoid sounding like cheesy stock samples. El-P’s fantastic damage is a complete departure from araabMUZIK’s signature chops but the two producers aren’t that dissimilar. Both achieve sonic brilliance by maintaining a hardcore aesthetic that separates them from many of their peers. This was a “leak” so you won’t find it on iTunes. Keep searching.
5/5

’til next week!

Bundown returns to FM dial

20120405-222016.jpg

After nine years, Bundown Sound System will return to the FM dial tomorrow night with their new weekly mixshow, Fuel Good Radio.

Collectively, Bundown – in its current form – have never shared mics on-air but there are a handful of them who are no strangers to radio.

Lucious worked the airwaves on FLAVA 107.9, CKUW 95.9 and ENVOL 91.1.

Boogie, Lord and Pleezy also served as on-air talent on CKUW.

The entire team will rock the turns every Friday from 12 midnight – 2 a.m as well as feature live-to-airs from Bar Italia, the popular Corydon Avenue haunt which hosts their fuelGOODmusic residency on Friday and Saturday nights.

Bundown rocks the Mox

Tonight, the BSS will be throwing down the club bangers at two Moxie’s locations.

Quadratik and Jay Boogie will be spinning at Moxie’s Classic Grill on Regent while Ofield K and Bruce Lord hold down Moxie’s Classic Grill at MTS Centre!

Take your pic or better yet, reach both!

No exaggeration…reach early…Moxie’s parties always have line-ups!

We’ll see y’all on the dancefloor tonight!
