T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90′s Vol. 23

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

SLT90s 23

 

It’s been two years since the last Sounds Like The 90’s. No excuses, so let’s just dive right into this. For those not hip to these series, it’s a compilation of recent music that has come over over the past year. The criteria is simple, it either has to sounds like or feature artists from the 90’s. The reality is, there isn’t much music these days that truly sounds like the 90’s, which is probably why it took forever to make Volume 23. Not all, but a lot of music completely misses our radar and that is the purpose of these compilations. Thanks for all those who continue to support Philaflava, Steady Bloggin and of course, T.R.O.Y.  –Jason Gloss

K-Def – The Most Underrated

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

If there ever was a non-T.R.O.Y. compilation we’d post on here its this one. Peace to all parties involved, T.R.O.Y. forum member claaa7, who needs to just join the blog already, Al Lindstrom for hookin’ me up with most of my Tommy Boy vinyl back in the day and of course everyone else who made this happen. Check it out and be sure to thank claaa7 on his site or in the thread. –Philaflava

Intro & Interview by Chris Moss
Photos by Dan Love
Compilation produced by J.E.S.A. Of 2DopeBoyz, Chris Moss, claaa7 Of The Lost Tapes & Redefinition Records

“For a producer -or any artist for that matter- to articulate their vision and have it manifested sonically for the masses to hear is no simple task. Equally difficult is having that same artist verbally detail the creative processes that went into the creation of that work of art. Be it painting, writing, rapping, or beat making, describing the intricacies of creation is a difficult undertaking.

I had a chance to talk with K-Def the other day and he is one cat who can put his words down in a similarly poignant fashion as one of his signature drum patterns. To borrow the title to his latest release on Redefinition Records, he’s adapted quite well as “Time’s Change”. K walks us through a sampling of some of his discography and several releases you may or may not be familiar with. Quite candidly, this selection was chosen not only to illustrate his rightfully earned place in Hip Hop, but also to show the breadth of his catalog and talent. For a producer to have worked with Diddy and UGK and Ghostface and Ol’ Dirty Bastard is quite an accomplishment. K-Def gives readers –and listeners- a chance to hear a little insight from the producer himself and some never before shared knowledge into the origins of some of his records. Pay attention.”

01. “Introducing the Magnificent”
K-Def: “That was done in ’95 and I had just gotten the MPC 3000 hooked up with various sound modules.” This was really the first time I had started playing keys on my beats. “The drums came right from a clean-ass, Akai factory drum disk, no sampled drums!” I was looking to move my production game away from what I had previously been doing and started incorporating more technology into my equipment setup.

02. “Real Live Shit Remix” (Ft. Real Live/Ghostface/Lord Tariq/Killa Sin/Cappadonna)
K-Def: “It was a methodical hypnosis beat. I had programmed the drums and hooked the sample up with the strings and the hard timpani hits. Everyone wanted to rhyme on this beat and Wu and others were really down to get on this record. I also have this session on videotape, too. It was the original version that helped us get a deal with Big Beat/Atlantic.”

Sean Price ripping the same beat found on the “Ultimate MC Rush” he once appeared on with Saukrates. Some Preem and Alchemist beats and of course the back end of the mix takes you into a chill state with the help of Blu, Superstar Quamallah and Willie Evans Jr (formerly Asamov). Shots to both dirt_dog and Strategy for the help as always. –Philaflava

Tragedy, Nas, Ak Skills, and Meyhem Lauren: Q-Boro Continuum

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Download: Meyhem Lauren “7000 Thoughts”

Relative newcomer Meyhem Lauren’s ((For more coverage and information on Meyhem Lauren, check Unkut and Steady Bloggin.)) fierce delivery and fixation on themes like contingency, ruination, and self-annihilation brings to mind the brief but memorable discography of the late 90s Far Rockaway, Queens native Ak Skills. ((Click here for more information on Ak Skills, plus downloads.))  Meyhem’s emotionally charged, deceptively unrefined rhyme style is not easily mistaken for Ak’s matter-of-fact delivery, but both rappers borrow vocal and poetic techniques from the anxiously introspective exposition of Nas’s verse on “Life’s A Bitch.” ((Though it has been overshadowed by AZ’s stellar debut verse, Nas’s verse from “Life’s A Bitch” is one of his best ever, in this blogger’s humble opinion.)) On “7000 Thoughts,” Meyhem channels Nasty Nas at his most poignant in a manner reminiscent of Ak’s cautious explication of the pitfalls of street life on his lesser known songs “One Life To Live” and “One Thing Or Another.” Even more impressively he evokes regret and pathos in a conversational tone that hearkens further back to one of Nas’s principle influences, Tragedy Khadafi (formerly Intelligent Hoodlum). ((Two great examples of Tragedy’s ingenius everyman approach are the remixes of “Street Life” and “Grand Groove.”)) (more…)
