Pete Rock - A Little Soul

This little beauty is from Pete Rock’s Petestrumentals’. The album is another example (not that we need one) of the soul brother’s supreme talent, it represents everything he stands for as a producer. ‘Petestrumentals' is a raw, laid back, and soulful production that should have a place in everyone's music collection.

TOO MANY ZOOZ! I was watching this video of these guys playing in the NYC subway and I found myself thinking “Man, this is the kinda bad you make fanart of…” and so here it is!  I did the initial sketches and then tried to take them into other styles, but nothing was working as well as the original, dirty sketches, so I just dressed them up!  Anyway, check ‘em out!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZu097wb8wU

My understanding of tea etiquette in England is:
OFFER YOUR GUEST TEA AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE - GIVE THEM THE LARGER MUG, BECAUSE THEN THEY CAN HAVE MORE TEA IN IT, AND MORE TEA IS BETTER - OFFER THEM MORE TEA AS SOON AS THEY HAVE FINISHED THEIR MUG OF TEA, BECAUSE MORE TEA IS BETTER.
IF SOMEONE LOOKS STRESSED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UPSET, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS TIRED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST COME IN FROM THE RAIN, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST RECEIVED BAD NEWS, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TV WITH SOMEONE AND THERE IS AN ADBREAK, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF TEA, OFFER TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE TEA.
IF SOMEONE IS NOT CURRENTLY HOLDING A MUG OF TEA, DOUBLE CHECK THAT THAT IS AN INTENTIONAL STATE OF AFFAIRS, AND THEY DO NOT, IN FACT, WANT A CUP OF TEA.
TEA.

RapGenius.com’s amazing rap stats show how often words have been mentioned in lyrics of the years.
This one shows after Mike D’s early stage egotism, the Beasties effectively developed a nice synchronicity.

Monday:  What’s with the name dudes?

Surely THE question that DAS RACIST may have faced most often… There’s more to say about the music.

Despite the appearance of a maladjusted Rap, badly screwed on the fundamentals of genre, the band from Brooklyn, born within some Mario Bros’ stage, has a solid hip-hop savoir-faire.

On this title from 2010, You Oughta Know, the team shapes his drunken version of a trick recurring then among rap releases (since Mos Def?): an accelerated sample of some Soul music singer... here covered in chorus like a wino who does not speak English … an incomprehensible flow contrasting with the neat couplets or the ease of the Ragga skids…

Daring to imagine a Das EFX crossing the genetic heritage of MF Doom and De La Soul, and we would approach an anatomical description of the case…

Let’s play

Lundi : c’est quoi ce nom les mecs ?

Sûrement LA question à laquelle DAS RACIST ont du faire face le plus souvent… Il y a tellement plus à dire sur la musique.

Contrairement aux allures d’un rap déréglé, mal visé sur les fondamentaux du genre, la formation de Brooklyn, née dans un tableau de Mario Bros, affiche un savoir-faire hip-hop sérieux.

Sur ce titre de 2010, You Oughta Know, l’équipe donne sa version ivre d’un des trucs récurrent d’alors (depuis Mos Def ?) des productions rap : le sample d’une voix Soul accélérée… ici reprise en choeur à façon d’un ivrogne ne parlant pas anglais… un débit incompréhensible contrastant avec celui détaché des couplets ou l’aisance des dérapages ragga… 

On oserai imaginer un Das EFX croisant les patrimoines génétiques de MF Doom et De La Soul, qu’on approcherai une description anatomique de l’affaire…

Let’s play

Daft Punk + Beastie Boys - Intergalactic Planet Get Lucky

Weird remix but a video clearly put together by a serious Beasties fan, using footage from the video itself plus the legendary Glasgow In The Round tour if I’m not mistaken.
