The Exciters – Caviar And Chitlins
Friday, April 7th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Exciters – Caviar And Chitlins

Image: 1609643 Formed in Queens, NY in the early 1960s, The Exciters were a dynamic R&B quartet consisting of lead singer Brenda Reid and her producer/writer husband Herb Rooney, plus vocalists Carolyn Johnson and Lillian Walker. The group rose to prominence in 1962, when their hit single “Tell Him” rose to #4 on the U.S. pop chart.
The Exciters continued releasing quality music for years, including their 1969 RCA album Caviar And Chitlins, a vintage slice of soul / R&B from perhaps the most important era in the genre’s history. Incidentally, a few years later the album’s producer Herb Rooney would go on to produce and write one of hip-hop’s most sampled records ever, “Synthetic Substitution” by Melvin Bliss. Long out-of print, Caviar And Chitlins is now available on vinyl for the frst time in decades. Discover it now thanks to this official reissue from Nature Sounds.

Madlib – Bad Neighbor (Instrumentals)
Friday, February 10th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Madlib – Bad Neighbor (Instrumentals)

Image: 1608469

Bang Ya Head Entertainment is gearing up to release the Instrumentals to the critically acclaimed Bad Neighbor LP by MED and Blu. All beats produced by Madlib. 15 banging instrumentals and 3 bonus beats for your enjoyment. Everything Madlib creates is innovating but the production on Bad Neighbor LP are timeless. Double vinyl with download card.

With 100% beats by Madlib, Bad Neighbor is the brainchild of MED – a cornerstone in Stones Throw’s history — and Blu – the voice behind modern classics like Below the Heavens — who instantly clicked a decade earlier on tour with Emanon. The album is an exclamation point on the idea that began with The Burgundy EP, expanded to include Dam Funk and Mayer Hawthorne on The Buzz EP, and continued until contributions from Anderson .Paak (Dr. Dre’s Compton), Hodgy Beats (Odd Future), and the one-and-only MF DOOM made Bad Neighbor ready to launch.

But Bad Neighbor isn’t the first time MED and Madlib’s orbits have collided. A fellow head from the fertile crescent of Oxnard, CA, MED not only guested on the now-classic Soundpieces by Lootpack in ’99, he also dropped into Madvillain’s “Raid” (Madvillainy, 2004) and made his mark on Quasimoto’s Unseen (2000), not to mention making the sole MC appearance on Madlib’s acclaimed Shades of Blue. Madlib, in turn, provided the lion’s share of production on MED’s Classic and Push Comes to Shove alongside J Dilla and Oh No. Meanwhile Blu, besides earning HipHopDX’s “Rookie of the Year” bona fides, put LA back on the map alongside Exile (Below the Heavens, Give Me My Flowers…) and as a self-produced solo artist (Her Favorite Colour, Jesus, York!, Good to Be Home).

Bad Neighbor, although hazy, heavy, and blunted under the influence of Madlib’s aesthetic backbone, floats effortlessly above the smoke by virtue of MED and Blu’s sometimes topical, sometimes acrobatic, and always on-point interplay. The album is undoubtedly an extension of all three artists’ signature sounds, but it simultaneously defies all precedents to reaffirm each individual’s position at the forefront of LA’s legendary hip-hop landscape.

Enlightment – Faith Is The Key
Friday, January 13th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Enlightment – Faith Is The Key

Image: 1608187 After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by Washington DC soul/gospel outft Enlightment is fnally receiving a proper release. Founded by ordained bishop Larry H. Jordan and his brother-in-law Frank Tinsley in the early 1980s, Enlightment was among the frst groups to fuse modern R&B production with gospel themes. Unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album Faith Is The Key was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. “We knew we were getting airplay across the country, but we couldn’t get the product in the stores at the time”, explains Tinsley of the missed opportunity. Only a handful of Faith Is the Key LPs ever made it into the public’s hands.
As a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. It was rediscovered around the year 2000, when copies started selling online for over $2000. While disappointed in the record’s lack of immediate impact, the group’s founders are not surprised by its recent revival. “It’s just good music with a spiritual message, that’s why it stood the test of time,” says Tinsley. “We made sure we had very crystal clear production,” adds Jordan. “We knew we had a gospel beat, but we wanted to be dynamic and innovate.” Thanks to an official vinyl rerelease via Nature Sounds with worldwide distribution, listeners can now experience that innovation frst-hand.

Havoc (Mobb Deep) – The Infamous Producer Kit (USB)
Friday, February 7th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Havoc (Mobb Deep) – The Infamous Producer Kit (USB)

Image: 1586394 After 20 years of crafting tracks, legendary producer Havoc of Mobb Deep is making a selection of his signature sounds available to producers everywhere. The Infamous Producer Kit features over 200 sounds used on classic Mobb Deep albums like The Infamous, from Havoc’s earliest productions all the way up to the present day. While some producers keep their production secrets to themselves, Havoc is eager to spread the love. “It’s a gift. Why harbor all these cool sounds? I’d rather give them to the next generation. The kit includes various sounds, but there’s a heavy emphasis on percussion. “Drums can make or break a song,” Havoc explains. “If the drums ain’t right, your song won’t even have a chance to be great.”

While eBay is littered with knock-off kits, Havoc is among the first producers to release the actual sounds used on classic recordings. “This is not just another kit,” he explains. “This is the original sounds from my machine. It’s a piece of time. It’s a piece of history.” Now producers everywhere can incorporate a piece of that history into their own projects. “Bottom line, this is something you want in your arsenal as a producer,” says Havoc. “You want the right tools in your toolbox.”

The full package includes the full kit on a limited-edition USB flash drive and custom case, free poster, plus a booklet with exclusive production tips from Havoc. Flash drive also comes pre-loaded with Havoc’s solo albums The Kush and 13, plus the first two volumes in his instrumental Beats Collection series. Available from 17.01.2014

Image: 1580333 Nur wenige Künstler sind so umstritten und einflussreich. New York-Legende R.A. The Rugged Man wird dieser Einordnung durch seine Kombination aus Authentizität, seines unbestreitbar wilden Lebens mit seinen unverkennbar außergewöhnlichen Fähigkeiten am Mikrophon gerecht. Schon in den Neunzigern, als er mit Notorious BIG, Sadat X und Company Flow aufnahm und zwischenzeitlich bei Jive gesigned war, wo sein Album jedoch nie veröffentlicht wurde, glaubte niemand mehr an eine erfolgreiche Karriere. Aufgrund seiner vielen Eskapaden war er aus sämtlichen Studios, Konzerthallen und Plattenfirmenbüros verbannt worden. Doch R.A. The Rugged Man blieb sich treu, veröffentlichte mehrere Underground-Singles und ein Album auf Rawkus, Eastern Conference und Nature Sounds und erhielt sich einen harten Kern an treuen Fans. Nun legt er mit “Legends Never Die” den Nachfolger zu “Die Rugged Man Die” vor. Mit dabei sind MCs wie Tech N9ne, Talib Kweli, Brother Ali, Masta Ace, Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks), Sadat X, Bumpy Knuckles u.v.a. Für die Beats haben unter anderem Marco Polo, Buckwild, Apathy, Ayatollah und Mr. Green gesorgt. Available from 10.05.2013
