The Pharcyde “J-Sw!ft Re-Licks by vaporized”

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

Another T.R.O.Y. exclusive by the blend king, vaporized. This time vapo took Pharcyde accapellas and laid them over different J-Sw!ft beats. I know that this project was a little harder to complete than some of his others, he gave up several times and nearly scrapped it. I’m glad he didn’t.

The Pharcyde “J-Sw!ft Re-Licks by vaporized”
01 Pharcyde Is Coming (Intro)
02 Soulflower (J-Sw!ft ‘Things I Hate’ Blend)
03 Runnin’ (J-Sw!ft ‘Can’t Live With It’ Blend)
04 Ya Mama (J-Sw!ft ‘What We Have Here’ Blend)
05 Trust (J-Sw!ft ‘ADIDAS’ Blend)
06 It Ain’t Nothin’ Like (J-Sw!ft ‘Womens Lib’ Blend)
07 Otha Fish (J-Sw!ft ‘It Gets No Reala’ Blend)
08 Get Down (J-Sw!ft ‘Clown With My Crew’ Blend)
09 Passin’ Me By (J-Sw!ft ‘Takin Hoes’ Blend)
10 4 Better Or 4 Worse (J-Sw!ft ‘I Know You Want It’ Blend)
11 Let It Go (J-Sw!ft ‘Can’t Get None’ Blend)

The Pharcyde “Phriday Phun Pack #12”

Friday, May 11th, 2012


And just like that, it’s already been 12 weeks and time to wrap this series up. Along the way I’ve learned a few things. One, I always thought Slim Kid Tre and Fatlip were my favorite members. And maybe they were from the Bizarre Ride time period. But though this process I have certainly gained an incredible appreciation for Booty Brown and Imani. Two, I just have to accept that Bizzare Ride came along at just the right point in my life. No matter how badly I want a reunion or some new recording sessions to happen, Bizzare Ride will never be duplicated. Three, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Four guys, four different styles, one incredible group. Plus tons of incredible producers! J-Sw!ft, LA JAY, Jay Dee and Buckwild just to name a few. And let’s not forget Quinton. He’s on his way with another J. And everything’s ok.

Here’s the final breakdown. A dope Nu-Mark remix that popped up as a b-side during the RMXXOLOGY release. Was it just not submitted in time to make the album cut? Second, I picked up this beautiful instrumental in 2006 but only recently found out that it got the full remix treatment with vocals. In the #3 position is a real treat. The “Soul Flower (Bare Bones Edit)” track is a far-from-polished project that will never be finished. Originally planned as a five song series to go with the recent “Singles Collection” box set, this remix of sorts was built using the original multitrack and it never made it past the concept stage. It was created by breaking down the beat from its dense layers into separate parts, using only one section at a time (hence the ‘bare bones’ nickname). Nothing new was added except for a few echo filters, but the powers that be weren’t feeling the idea so it got scrapped before the other four edits were begun. Next is some more Spaceboy Boogie X who has made a few appearances throughout this series. And the last track is a Mick Boogie special. From what I can remember, it was a mash-up he did after working on the promo mix for Peter Bjorn and John. And unusual pairing that he more than pulls off.

The Pharcyde “Phriday Phun Pack #6”

Friday, March 30th, 2012


And just like that, it’s Phriday again. Another excellent reggae mash, a Cut Chemist b-side, an obscure track from Denmark and a very nice, little known,vinyl remix from 1993. The other choice cut on here is “Heart & Soul,” produced by none other than Buckwild. I always knew this was from the Labcabin era, but wasn’t aware that it appeared on a couple international versions. I only ever knew of “Emerald Butterfly” and “Just Don’t Matter” as the bonus tracks. Mine came from the mysterious (bootleg?) “Forever.” Suggestions are always welcome, pheel phree to leave a comment.

Fela Kuti & De La Soul – Fela Soul

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

What do you get when you put together afrobeat legend Fela Kuti and rap pioneers De La Soul? You get Fela Soul; musical tapestry created by Gummy Soul artist Amerigo Gazaway. More than just a clever title, Fela Soul is an 8-track, 33 minute journey into the world of afrobeat rhythms, funky horn riffs, and classic hip-hop gems. Using dozens of hand-picked samples from the Nigerian instrumentalist and political figure Fela Kuti, and 8 carefully-chosen acapellas from the Native Tongue rap trio De La Soul, Amerigo seamlessly intertwines the two into something completely new and original.

Download the entire album for free, along with liner notes and album commentary below.

Props to GummySoul for this one.

Rakim “The R: The Best Of The Rest”

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

My God, the Philaflava Forum is such a great place! What started as a single person posting a link to 3 volumes of Rakim material has turned in to a monster project. So far I have finished 6 volumes on my own and probably have an additional 6 to come. Most of the tracks came from various rips I have collected over the years. Shouts to musiclover123 for compiling the initial 3 volumes and to truthaddict for posting about it. Special thanks to Roy Johnson, Step One and DJ Mike Nice for posting more tracks from the vaults and spending time to rips their vinyls.

There will be some remixes & mash-ups in here that people are going to hate, but there are also plenty of great surprises. If you don’t like it, don’t download it. This is my attempt to get EVERYTHING in one place. If you have something to add, please leave a comment or add on to the thread in the forum.

I had found this one listed on the web, but all the links were dead. So I did a little leg work and tracked down DJ Funkdoc (Germany represent!) who created this remix. Unfortunately we didn’t connect in time for the initial post the other day.
