Ras Kass – Non-Album Tracks (1994-1996) (Re-Upped)

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Editor’s Note: Back by popular demand

Ras Kass is easily one of my favorite MCs of all time, but I’m mostly just a fan of his mid-90s discography. Fortunately, he recorded quite a few tracks in between the years of 1994 and 1996, and he also blessed several radio shows with ill pre-written freestyles. Three volumes worth of non-album tracks is no small feat – that’s more than Organized Konfusion had in between the years of 1989 and 1998.

I have also included a “Soul On Ice” instrumental companion as a bonus. Enjoy, and hit us up in the comments section if you have anything that isn’t included here. There’s an alternate version of “Won’t Catch Me Runnin” that I was hoping would surface before the completion of this post, but nobody seems to have it.

2. Remain Anonymous
3. Etc (Extended Version)

Hiero Producer Series: Domino (Re-Upped)

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be posting production compilations for all of the Hiero producers. There will be 24 volumes in all, or 2 GB worth of music, so get your external HDs ready.

First up, we got 4 volumes from one of the most underrated producers in the history of hip hop: Domino. Casual’s “Fear Itself” LP from ’94 is generally regarded as a classic, and Domino’s funk-based arsenal is one of the album’s key ingredients. He also hooked up some of the dopest beats on Del’s ’93 masterpiece “No Need For Alarm”, and he was the foremost producer on Hiero’s underrated ’98 LP “3rd Eye Vision”. Aside from his stellar contributions on the aforementioned albums, he also produced quite a few bangers of the non-album variety.

The production discography speaks for itself; Domino deserves a shitload of credit for helping to define the Hieroglyphics sound.

I got six volumes of my favorite early-to-mid 90s west coast underground tracks on tap, so check back regularly.

Before you download these compilations, give this track a listen:

James Sumbi – Sunshine Men (1991)

And with that, I present to you: The Sunshine Men.

Hiero Producer Series: A-Plus (Re-Upped)

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Installment #2 of the Hiero Producer Series: A-Plus

Domino is generally regarded as the production king of the Hieroglyphics crew (and rightfully so), but A-Plus has always been my personal favorite. Throughout the 90s, he utilized legendary soul-jazz samples from the likes of Bob James, Grover Washington, Billy Cobham, The Crusaders, Ahmad Jamal, Freddie Hubbard, etc. The man has terrific taste in music, and that is reflected in his production discography. I guess that I’m just a huge fan of soul-jazz, though, so that would explain my preference for A-Plus production over the funk-based arsenal of Domino.

Again, make room on your external HDs, as the Hiero Producer Series will ultimately comprise 2 GB worth of music. Here are four volumes worth of A-Plus production files:

A-Plus – Production Files Volume 1
1. Souls Of Mischief – Theme From The Vandals

Hiero Producer Series: Casual (Re-Upped)

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

We’ll be reupping a few of our pieces in the next few days. We start with this classic we did 4 years ago.

Installment #5 of the Hiero Producer Series: Casual

Who doesn’t have talent behind the boards in the Hieroglyphics crew? I haven’t even gotten to Jay-Biz or Toure as of yet, and we’re already on installment #5.

The man behind the beat for “Catch A Bad One” is…..Casual??? When I first found out that he produced the lead single off of the “No Need For Alarm” LP, it absolutely blew my mind. If you think about it, “Catch A Bad One” is probably Del’s most well-known track outside of “Mistadobalina”, and the production is most definitely a major reason as to why that track is so popular amongst hip hop fans. The truly remarkable thing is that Cas was born in ’77 or thereabouts, so he was only in his mid-teens when he produced all of the tracks that you’ll find on volume 1, including the aforementioned “Catch A Bad One”, which was released in ’93.

Aside from his contributions on the officially-released Hiero albums, he also produced quite a few bangers of the non-album variety. The remix for “That’s How It Is” is fucking incredible, and it’s easily my favorite Casual beat. I’m also a big fan of his work on the “Wrongplace” remix, as well as the demos for “Gotta Lotta”, “Can U Feel It”, “Hydra”, etc.

De La Soul Is Alive And Well

Monday, June 6th, 2011

At least here on TROY. A few recent posts from around the blogosphere have focused on De La Soul.

Claa7 of The Lost Tapes blog recently put together a compilation called Three The Soulful Way, which he describes as “a collection of no less than 20 songs from the period between 1989 and 1994, carefully sequenced and arranged for the perfect De La experience.” Sounds good to us. Click on the album cover to download, and be sure to leave some feedback for Claa7 back at his blog.

Over at Scratch Reaction, Roy Johnson recently uploaded a live performance from De La Soul’s first tour in 1989. “Here’s a soundboard from De La Soul’s “Three Feet High & Rising” tour,” he writes, indicating to the real fans that this recording does the group’s legendary live show justice. You can peep audio snippets, download the whole set, and leave Roy some feedback here.

How crazy is it that Three Feet High and Rising was released 20 years ago? Tell those darned kids to get off the potholes in your lawn already.

Trugoy The Dove – Roadrunner

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Well, first of all thanks to Roy Johnson for discovering this track.

Second, in case you missed it in Roy’s De La Soul Is Dead Ear Rarities post from our Native Tongue Month, here it is now.

Track came out of Stretch & Bobbito rarities tape. We don’t know exact story behind this, but since Trugoy is credited with writing the lyrics to the song, we can safely assume he recorded this as a reference vocal track for Chi-Ali.

Enjoy!

James Brown – Samples Volume 5 & 6

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Moving right along with his James Brown month, Roy Johnson brings us volumes 5 and 6 at his Scratch Reaction blog, and to our T.R.O.Y. forum. Catch up on the last 4 volumes of JB samples here.

Now, this blog post is already loaded, so I’m not gonna get into much about just how great the Godfather Of Soul was. His impact on Hip Hop, alone, is unparalleled. Imagine being around when his records were actually dropping, though. The times were turbulent and ever changing, sure, but the music that JB brought was ALWAYS dope. You ever wondered why a lot of his records are still expensive, even though there were hundreds of thousands pressed up? Because people played his records until the grooves burned out, plain and simple. Legendary status, non debatable.
