Originally released in March 2006 and virtually
impossible to procure on vinyl ever since, BBE
are excited to announce a special ten year
anniversary edition of the classic Visioneers
album Dirty Old Hip Hop. Brainchild of 4Hero
founder and Reinforced Records founder Marc
Mac, the Visioneers project frst appeared in
2005 with seminal album ‘How About A Game of
Chess’, shortlisted for Gilles Peterson's coveted
Worldwide album of the Year award. For the
follow up, Marc began re-imagining his favourite
hip hop beats from the golden era, retaining the
feel of those extended, looping grooves whilst
also re-introducing the excitement and
musicianship of the records from which they
were sampled: ‘Dirty Old Hip Hop’ was born.
Drawing on the musical talents of Brad Somatik
and 4hero drummer Luke Parkhouse, this largely
instrumental album also featured stunning
performances from rappers Capitol A and Voice.
An artist who was introduced to jazz music by his
favourite hip hop beat-makers, ‘Dirty Old Hip
Hop’ serves as a loving tribute to both art-forms,
weaving the two together until even the most
ardent purist will fnd it hard to defne any space
between.
“Visioneers is not a band, it’s a studio project. I
want to pay respect to hip hop producers like
Jazzy Jef, Jay Dee and Pete Rock for introducing
me to Jazz and I needed to produce the tracks
like hip hop records that sound phat in a club
and not like dinner Jazz, it’s about reclaiming
Jazz.” - Marc Mac, 2006
Pressed on heavyweight orange vinyl, ‘Dirty Old
Hip Hop’ will be available in December 2017
Key selling points:
- Contains iconic re-composed versions of hip
hop classics The World Is Yours by Nas and
Runnin’ by the Pharcyde alongside original
tracks.
- Blurring the lines between hip hop and jazz, the
album is equally appealing to purist fans of
either style.
- Unavailable and in-demand on vinyl for almost
a decade, the album currently fetches up to £80
on Discogs.
- repress on lovely heavyweight orange vinyl
Available from 01.12.2017
