DJ Format-Psych Out-LP *Full Stream

BBE Music sais:

DJ Format’s Psych Out is a compilation of records from around the world that Format WISHES he could play at clubs every weekend. Some of the tracks are hard to categories …kind of psychedelic, kind of funky, kind of crazy…but most have unmistakable blend of distorted electric guitars, driving basslines and pounding drums. Maybe you didn’t think it was possible for “Foxy Lady” to be played any harder…but 49th Blue Streak did it. “Hava Nagila” never really seemed likely to lend itself to a psychedelic reworking…but The Quests from Singapore thought differently. In Germany, The CT Four Plus did away with boring tradition and instead praised God with their electric guitars. Advertising executives in France thought it best to spread the word of their new chocolate bar by commissioning the Bana Pop Band to make a cool 7″ flexi disc record. These are just a few examples of how the boundaries of music were being pushed in the late ’60s & early ’70s when most of these exciting recordings were made.

Da Beatminerz-Rhythm Roulette w/ Mass Appeal *Video

Mass Appeal sais:

There’s a reason Rhythm Roulette can skew towards the old and dusty hip hop producers of the late ’90s: that’s when sample cutting and crate-digging were the foremost currency of cool. Da Beatminerz were legends in that game, the architects behind OG NYC sounds, from Black Moon’s Enta Da Stage and Smif-N-Wessun’s Da Shinin’, among many others. We took a visit to Da Beatminerz’s apartment/headquarters in eastern Brooklyn to watch Mr. Walt and DJ Evil Dee cook up a few beats, working in close collaboration for the most part. It’s a family affair at the crib, and the beat has all the influence of their rugged NY sound, with an upbeat angle that shows how far they’ve come.
