yes y’all

I know alot of you might not appreciate the dopeness that is ed banger records. I have been getting into their stuff since I heard DJ Mehdi’s “Lucky Boy” album, which is a really funky record. Somehow I heard about “Loukoums,” his homage to Dilla’s Donuts, downloaded it as a podcast, and its been on heavy rotation since.
Peep it if you ever get a chance…

Then I heard about Justice. Then Feadz & Uffie. Then DJ Funk. Then SebastiAn. Then BusyP. Etc… Basically, these guys are doing their own thing and loads of people are following. Its crazy that Pase Rock is all up in this movement too. I guess he just does whatever the fuck he wants and does it well. Never saw him perform with 5 Deez, so this will be my first time seeing him live.

oh, and I stumbled upon this gem last night. Man, they were so fucking dope. And to think, 3 feet high came out in 1988…

Lover’s Rock

The Fat C is back with his second blog. blaaah, brrraap, braap!!! I want to continue with the theme of Reggae influenced sub genres.

This week its Lovers Rock, which is basically a romantic rhythm and blues influenced form of reggae. Lover’s rock was a product of the UK reggae scene in the mid to late 70’s. In the early 70’s most roots reggae was extremely focused on writing songs about social protest and Rastafari spirituality. Many UK artists at the time were looking for an alternative theme to political Reggae.

Jamaican music from Ska to Roots Reggae has always been influenced by American soul. Lovers Rock is simply an attempt to merge these two types of music even more. They take the smooth vocals of American soul and merge it with a reggae bassline and riddim. Lover’s rock never really became too popular in Jamaica itself, however it was adopted by many roots reggae artists (e.g. John Holt & Gregory Isaacs) as an alternate style in order to appeal to a wider audience.

One of the best Reggae complications heavily influenced by Lover’s Rock is: ‘Cactus Classics Vol -1 & 2’ It’s a must buy for anyone who is serious about there smooth reggae.

funky foood

Story behind this is that fade, green and I all got insanely crunk one night last summer and decided that we wanted to write a concept song with a funky loop; we had been joking around earlier in the day, and somehow came up with this chorus. It kind of just recorded itself from there.

I’m hungry…
