Philaflava: It Was In The Fuckin’ Movies

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

In January, we’re doing a themed soundtrack episode on Take It Personal, so it only made sense to share with you some of the amazing work TheBigSleep has been putting in on the Philaflava forums lately.

Today we bring you the first 4 compilations in the series that showcases just that. –Philaflava

Jim Sharp “ATCQ Midnight Marauders Revisited EP”

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

MM Revisited EP 450

Jim Sharp, one of my new favorite deejay/producer/chief rocka/b-ball heads, reached out to me and blessed the T.R.O.Y. Blog with this exclusive piece. I don’t have much to say, other than it’s an absolute MUST download.

“On November 9th 1993 A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Midnight Marauders’ dropped. ATCQ was and still is my favourite rap group and listening to Marauders now, it seems incredible how it’s endured the test of time. With the advancement of technology it has been possible to attain previously unreleased vocals and with this in mind I started to rebuild tracks from Marauders from their original samples. (it’s important to note that technology has only moved so far and the majority of vocals were impossible to get) I took a lot of time to imagine how Q-tip would have captured the samples, probably using a turntable and an MPC. Consciously not using pitch correct, sampling one side of the audio and bouncing it to stereo and continually trying to get the right filter, echo, pitch and sound from the original sample. I also re-imagined big sections of tracks paying homage to some of my favourite producers such as Premier, DJ Shadow, 9th Wonder and Large Professor. I thought about what it would have been like to have some legends of the game such as Biggie, Nas and Biz Markie dropping guest verses next to Tip and Phife. I completely understand how dear Tribe fans hold Marauders and it was important to me that it had a fresh take but stayed true to the original ethos. This was a labour of love and I hope people dig it for what it is.” – Jim Sharp

Schoolly D Instrumentals 101

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Alright yo, sit the fuck down, class is in session, bitch!

Widely acknowledged as the original gangsta rapper, Schoolly D is best known for his wildly humorous, pornographically sexual and wantonly violent lyrics. Still, despite all the attention his words have received over the years, few people recognize just how great of a musician he truly is. In exploring Schoolly’s catalogue and researching his place in hip-hop history, I’ve found that his rhymes have almost always overshadowed his beats (all of which he either produced or co-produced). I understand why they’re overlooked, but it’s ironic for several reasons:

1) His first single included a five and a half minute song that wasn’t an instrumental version of another cut but was still almost entirely rap-less. 2) As I said before and please correct me if I’m wrong, but aside from remixes and maybe a few DJ-showcase tracks, he produced or co-produced every song that ever appeared on one of his albums, which is basically unheard of for anyone, let alone someone who’s been making music for nearly 30 years. 3) To put it bluntly, his beats are fucking dope… I mean all of them… incredibly so… and while his rhymes could conceivably be dismissed as overly simple (especially if you’re a dumb motherfucker), his beats are often pretty damn complex.

Usually danceable, sometimes cinematic, always uniquely funky, Schoolly D’s production has evolved over time, setting trends and adapting to changes in the hip-hop soundscape. Even between his first two singles, Gangster Boogie / Maniac and P.S.K. What Does it Mean? / Gucci Time, there is a huge difference in styles. While the first is very much indebted to the whole Bambaataa electro-funk sound of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, the second — though released only a year later, in 1985 — is already looking ahead to the boom-bap sound typically associated with the so-called golden era of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Jump ahead another year to 1986’s Saturday Night and Schoolly’s experimenting with polyrhythmic syncopation. Fast-forward to 1989’s Living In The Jungle / Gucci Again and 1990’s King of New York, and although he’s still within the lane he’d built for himself years earlier, he’s now beginning to foreshadow the dusty minimalism that would rise to popularity around 93/94.

One could argue that Schoolly D’s production was simply ahead of its time. I’m willing to take that a step further and say that by being simultaneously ahead of its time and of its time, his production represents an unacknowledged link in the chain connecting hip-hop’s various eras. I put this compilation together in hopes of bringing listeners to a better appreciation and understanding of Schoolly D, the producer; because though I’m not one for making lists, as far as I’m concerned, he’s definitely one of the Top 10 hip-hop producers of all time… Top 3 when it comes to rapper/producers.

Now go do your homework. (Bump this motherfucker, read all that shit if you haven’t already, and leave a comment letting us know what you think, ho.)

Pete Rock “Delicious Vinyl 25th Anniversary Mix”

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Not sure how this mix has gone unnoticed for this long.

“The Stussy x Delicious Vinyl Collection celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the LA-based record label. The minor label started in the late 80s and became a major figure in the evolution of hip-hop through the early 90s with acts such as The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, Tone Loc, The Whoridas, Young MC and Brand New Heavies. They continue to maintain working relationships with these early artists and also support the next generation of musical talent including Dom Kennedy and Casey Veggies.”

Thanks to the King for the link. And check out the full line of Stussy x Delicious Vinyl shirts HERE.
