One day I just got a message on my blog's message box from this dude J. Jonah Jameson Lives (I love the spider-man reference) great blog, Jazz liberatorz are severly underated.. Lateef Dameer - Speak Like A Child - link.
I was like cool, I'll check it out a few days pass and I'm looking for a quick musical fix so I clicked the link, downloaded the album for free and I've been enjoying the vibe ever since. Lateef Dameer/Speak Like A Child is hip hop, jazz, funk, soul mixed into one nice cocktail. Think Q-Tip, De La Soul, The Liquid Crystal Project and that will give you an idea, don't sleep on this one ya'll gonna dig it.
Lateef: "I don't want to do anything else but make beats. When i'm in school listening to the words of my professors all I hear is different percussion accented within their speech. Its just getting to the point where I have to carry my 202 + Laptop with me everywhere. Get it, make it, and live it."

The Jazz … Liberatorz! who are they ? They are DJ Damage, Dusty and Madhi. They are from Meaux France. The group was formed in 1999 and Clin D’Oeil is on the French label called Kif Records.
As I was absorbing the vibes for the first time, the feeling reminded me of The Brand New Heavie’s Heavy Rhyme Experience vol. 1 (whatever happenned to vol.2) and Guru's early Jazzmatazz albums. Throughout the album, you can hear the sound of old jazz fusion records from the 70's mixed with samples and live instruments on which Jazz Liberatorz have invited la creme de la creme of the underground hiphop to spit on these velvet instrumental tracks, guest emcees like Fatlip, Asheru, Buckshot, Jay Live to name a few.
Bottom line is think this was devine intervention, it’s that good.
Peace & I'm out !

I've been playing so much X-BOX Madden 09 (my good friend the dirty-1 hooked me up real nice for my B-Day) that I started slippin' and getting lazy about my blog and podcast.
So that brings me to Zo and Tigallo Love the 80's. Zo is a producer from Detroit and Tigallo is Phonte from Little Brother. I really like that fact that besides Little Brother, Phonte is always on some side project and this one is the bomb. Don't be scared of the juicy greasy curls, It's an homage to what these guys grew up on, come to think about it I knew all the song so I can relate.
So basically these guys took a few songs from the 80's and updated then, we can recognize the songs right away but with Phonte on the vocals and Zo on production, the result is simply amazing. The EP was a very serious project from producing to vocals and mixing they went all out and the final product is right on point.

Run DMC / Megamix
Each summer up until high school graduation I would spend my whole summer in NYC, as a kid, this is where I discovered the music of my youth. I was blessed enough to see Rap go to Hip Hop and what I grew up on go to old school even the golden era of Hip Hop. My first tapes that I purchased we’re Run DMC Raising Hell, The Beastie Boys License to Ill and LL Cool J’s Bigger and Deffer. It goes without saying that these albums have a special place in my heart, I remember making copies for my friends and because of my older cousins I was know as the guy with the cool music in High School and also being from Montreal (Canada) and we didn’t get the 80’s until 1993 but not me, no way I was musically on point anyways to conclude my story here is Run DMC Megamix the best from Run DMC’s early stuff It’s definitely a must.
