” Keith Shocklee Speaks “

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 11.23.50 PM

You know it’s going to be a good day when your lucky enough to hear dudes like KEITH SHOCKLEE drop jewelry for over an hour and change.Back in the days I would have done almost anything to soak up this type of info, so do yourself a favor and peep this recent episode of the Cipher with Shawn Setaro!!!!!

Keith is best-known as a member of the Bomb Squad, the historic production team that changed hip-hop in the late 1980s and early 90s with their incendiary work for Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Slick Rick, Bel Biv DeVoe, and countless others – not to mention their hit remixes for pop stars like Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson.

But before Keith was helping to create some of the greatest rap albums of all time, he was part of a successful mobile DJ crew called Spectrum City, based out of his hometown of Roosevelt, Long Island. The crew consisted of most of the people who would go on to form the core of Public Enemy and the Bomb Squad.

” More Sunday Flavors “

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 5.05.09 PM

With an album cover like this you know Samuel Johnson was really in a zone…HAHAHA….

Stellar spiritual soul from Samuel Jonathan Johnson — an artist who only ever cut this one full album (in 1978 for Columbia Records) during his career, an album we’d rank right up there with the best ‘70s work by jazzy R&B contemporaries like Roy Ayers or Norman Connors! The record’s got a wonderful blend of mellow moments and more groove-heavy tracks — all handled with wonderful keyboards from Johnson, who gets nice and spacey at times.Very tasty, long-requested and oft-sampled ‘70s soul sounds!

” Kick Morale “

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 4.49.41 PM

Paying 180 dollars for a pair of kicks is against my personal Hip Hop ethics, but I can’t front – these are kinda fresh !!!!!!

” Architect : Live Steez “

Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 5.02.46 PM

WHEW-

Architect is no slouch when it comes to production…..For instance here is a 7 minute clip of him rocking all types of beat chaos at a recent function in San Jose (Club Delux)….DO NOT SLEEP…

” Scaramanga : The Drop “

Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 8.22.37 AM

I’m going to bless you with a joint that I seriously doubt many of you have heard before…..SCARAMANGA & BRONX ZODIAK “The Drop” is so fucking raw, that it sounds like it was literally recorded in the basement (Which is actually a good thing if you know what your doing – the rawer the better if you ask me)….

The first two verses are by “BZ” and on the final verse SCARAMANGA lays down more hardcore esoteric bars that deserve repeated listening….

” Turkish Funk Mode “

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 2.19.20 PM

Yesterday I came home to a record box with my name on it….

I’m used to records coming to my crib, but I can’t recall ordering any pieces for the last month or so….I guess I’m on some type of mailing list for JACKPOT RECORDS (PDX) so they took it upon themselves to ship out this Turkish funk reissue (Mustafa Özkent- Gençlik Ile Elele)….

WOW- Keep em coming fellas…..

• Turkish Psych/Funk Instrumental Classic
• First US Pressing on Vinyl
• Psychedelic Splatter Colored Vinyl

Originally released in Turkey 1973, Özkent’s masterpiece (creation) of an all instrumental Turkish Psychedelic Funk album, filled with classic beats and breaks still inspires long time fans and first time listeners. The funky rhythms, hypnotic percussion, and heavy break beats makes this a holy grail among DJs and music fans alike. Only a handful of copies from the original pressing are known to still exist making this reissue a welcome addition to any record collection.

PEEP….

” Joint Of The Day “

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 9.47.26 AM

I finally got around to listening to AG The Coroners debut release “Sip The Nectar”….If it was up to me “The Stick Up” would get the vinyl treatment – with some type of remix on the flip side..

*Wish the rest of the album sounded wicked as this….

” Kutmaster Kurt Speaks “

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 9.19.35 AM

Truth be told – My favorite album from KOOL KEITH since his Ultra Mag days is the “Masters Of Illusion” album with MOTION MAN….I’m not sure why this trio didn’t record a follow up, but one thing is for sure – KUTMASTER KURT did an excellent job behind the boards….Go back and listen to that joint if you think I’m bullshitting..

CULTURE CREATURE recently caught up with the elusive producer for an ill Q&A session that is worthy of your time……

Masters of Illusion is another one of my favorite projects of yours. How did that come together?

“I was always conflicting with Keith creatively about stuff. I became more vocal about it later… I was trying to go in a different direction. I was like, ‘Look Keith, I’ll help you do your projects the way you wanna do ‘em, and why don’t you do some rugged hip hop tracks the way I wanna do ‘em.’ It was kinda like a trade-off thing. So Matthew was sort of a trade-off for Masters of Illusion with him. I helped him make Matthew as a trade-off for him to do his vocal contributions to Masters of Illusion.

The vision of that record was totally my vision, and the sound conceptually and creatively. That’s why I made it ‘KutMasta Kurt presents Masters of Illusion.’ I wanted people to know this is how I wanted to do stuff with Keith, and Motion Man, who is my ace, and who I thought people needed to hear more of… It accomplished what I wanted. People who have similar taste as me would probably say that’s one of the better quality records that we’ve done together.”

“Hip Hop Treats “

Screen Shot 2016-05-13 at 11.58.11 AM

I was reluctant to get a so-called “smart phone” for the longest time…Matter of fact, I didn’t get my first joint until about a year and a half ago…

WHY?

LIFE IS ALREADY DISTRACTING ENOUGH, why add more fuel to the fire by constantly staring down at your phone instead of actually paying attention to your immediate surroundings…Anyway, I went out and copped one and I can honestly say that I was probably better off without it….

But until the day when I throw my I-Phone 6s into the sea, I might as well go out and cop this TECHNIQUE 12OO case for a boost in my Hip Hop morale….If your thinking along the same lines PEEP….

” Vendetta Vinyl In The Area “

Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 11.02.14 PM

2016 has been a very interesting year thus far…..

It’s about to get even more interesting when I leave the confines of Vietnam, California and head up to Seattle with my comrades for a few days of heavy digging, non stop joke cracking, a few radio spots, a couple DJ gigs – including this one at EVERYDAY MUSIC ON THE 28TH…..

MF GRIMM, AYATOLLAH, ARCHITECT (yes, that Architect who used to rock with Stones Throw in the their beginning stages with his group Homeless Derelix), and my dudes PEZO & FDRZ……So if your in the area come on through if you know what time it is….

Peace-
D
