I've been checking for these guys for a few years & now the musical chefs are back with the 3rd intallment of their remix series. This go round they've re-jigged tracks by The Game, Clipse, Biggie, CL Smooth, Jay Z, Steve Spacek, Scarface & more. It's nice & it's free so don't sleep now. Plus they've got plenty more freeness on their myspace including Their version of Jay's American Gangster & a remix of AZ's AWOL album. Give em some props & enjoy!
UFP (MC)& Squid (Beat Man) are 2Fly Shirpas. As usual you would expect the media powers that be to big up their charges. But this is definately worthy of a lot more attention & it's a freebie too. A lot of head nods & rhymes with a message. Don't be afraid to give big ups on their myspace either peepz.
Live instrumentation is the way of the walk. A few posts back i reviewed The ArtOfficial album, Fist Fights & Foot Races. I eulogised then about the wonders of what The Roots used to do best (that's right). Kaboom is a slightly rockier outing than Fists Fights & the varied tempo of the album keeps things interesting. There are droplets of harmonies & spoken word in here too from MC Eze Jackson (nice name). He & the other 4 members of the group create great soundscapes for Eze to ride on. As for my personal standouts on this one. The smooth Jazz Rock stylings of Dilapidated Buildings & the multi guitar driven Soul Slammin', are my favs. But a special mention has to go to Get Serious & the Lit fuse that is Phrases. Definately money well spent. Peep the taster then give em a heads up on their myspace
