Three Slices Of Old School Pizza

Kid Capri The King Of Mixtapes

In the early 70's, within the urban enclave known as the South Bronx,
rap music was just getting noticed by its disenfranchised citizens.
It was during this same time,
that an 8-year-old by the name of
David Anthony Love
received his first mixer.

With youth on his side coupled with the determination to succeed,
he began to hone his skills
by DJ'ing at block parties and hitting the local club circuit.

It wasn't long before others took notice.
Relying on his entrepreneurial skills to keep up with the demand,
led him to record his live sets on tape and sell them on 145th Street in Harlem.

Thus began one of the pioneers of the modern day mixtape.

This Kid Was Kid Capri
Here Are Three Classics Mixtapes From 1989
that he is still Selling Nowadays!!!

Old! + School!
=Old School Volume 1
(For Those Of You Who Still Don't Get It,
You Must Download The Two Parts To Get The Mix...)

Old! + school!
=Old School Volume 2
(For Those Of You Who Still Don't Get It,
You Must Download The Two Parts To Get The Mix...)

Old! + School!
=Old School Volume 3
(For Those Of You Who Still Don't Get It,
You Must Download The Two Parts To Get The Mix...)

This Are Cd reissues Version So It Only Goes 74 Mns Long instead Of The Original Tapes
(If Anyone Has The Tape Versions Feel Free To Holla At Me)
Volume 1 & 2 Are Funk orientated
Volume 3 Is Old School Hip Hop
By The Way on Volume 3
The Track 19 Is interpreted by the Cold Crush Brothers (My Mistake)

Know Your Classics

Afrika Bambaataa's Death Mix.
Kid Capri's 52 Beats.
Various recorded performances at the T-Connection.
All of them, among ones infinitely more obscure,
are revered and fetishized among obsessive hip-hop mixtape connoisseurs.
While a few of these tapes sound fresh and relevant today,
the vast majority are trumpeted solely
for their historical significance and collectible nature,
furthering one's credibility in the never-ending authenticity debate.
None of these mixtapes are ones you would, in good conscience, give to your curious friend and say,
"If you still don't care for hip-hop mixtapes after this, I doubt anything would change your mind."
Enter DJ Q-Bert...

It's Time To Look At The Classics
when It Comes To Mixtapes
You Must Have Those Three

First is the Death Mix By Afrika Bambaataa and Jazzy Jay

Issued on 1981 on Paul Winley Records
and recorded Live @ James Monroe High School, Bronx

Afrika Bambaataa isThe Founder of The Mighty Zulu Nation
And Dj Jazzy Jay Is One of The Pioneer Of The bronx
Who Inspired Showbiz,Lord Finesse And The All DITC

You Got Two Mixes From Those Cats,
It's All About Education!

Then You Got This "52 Beats" Tapes from 1988

90 Minutes Of Classics Breaks
(All Taken From The Ultimate Breaks and Beats Series)
Flipped ,Scratched and Cut By The King of Mixtapes, Kid Capri

Almost Made 20 Years Ago And Still A Bomb
Timeless! + Breaks!
=90 minutes For 52 Beats
(For Those Of You Who Still Don't Get It,
You Must Download The Two Parts To Get The Mix...)

And Then In 1999

Q Bert Came Out With The Unforgettable
Demolition Pumpkin Squeeze Musik/A Preskool Breakmix
Wich Is A Kind of new definition of The Kid Capri Tape
by the True Hip Hop revolutionary Q-Bert
Killin' The Classics!

Those Three Tapes(well The First One Is Not a Tape But...)
Are major parts of the Hip Hop History

You Got To Give The Credit

Deeper and Deeper

Deeper Concentration is the second installment
of underground hip hop compilations featuring
and dope shit!

Here You Go Now With The Complete Series
And Don't Forget To Dig In The Archives

Don't Sleep
2 Deeper!

Friday, November 10, 2006

In The Beginning There Was Deep

Deep Concentration reinforces what you fundamentally love about hip-hop
and then proceeds to flip your brain into hyperspace
with some of the more progressive DJ compositions
from some of the most respected turntablists around.

Cut Chemist reaches extra deep into the archives to build "Lesson 6,"
while DJs Swingsett and Wally find a hook in a loop of dripping water
for the trippy "Centaurius Space Bass.

" Hip-hop purists will appreciate the X-Ecutioners' assault "A Turntable Experience"
and the only MC cut, "Say What," by the lyrical marvels Latyrx.

Some of the routines on Deep Concentration are sonically experimental while others,
such as Prince Paul's ego trip, "DJ Prince Paul vs. the World," simply excel with excess

In Deep!

Breakin' Dogs

Way more than just a Blue Note mix

A seriously wicked batch of beats, breaks, and grooves
Pulled from titles on Blue Note and a whole bunch of other EMI-related labels!

The set's served up by DJ Muro, with a chopped-up beat-heavy approach
that's different than his previous Incredible Blue Note set
Much more hard and funky, with a focus on the best bits of the tunes,
and a cut-up funky mixtape sort of feel overall!

There's 29 tracks stuffed into one great set
With bits from tracks that include
"A Day In The Life" by Les DeMerle,
"I'm Just Not Ready For Love" by The Ikettes,
"Deep Night" by Kokee Band,
"Gotta Be Funky" by Monk Higgins,
"It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson,
"The Landlord" by Al Kooper,
"I'm On My Way" by Candido,
"Urizen" by David Axelrod,
"In The Middle" by Grant Green,
"Underground Railroad" by Gonzalez,
"Tanga" by Som Tres,
"Soul Symphony" by Three Sounds,
"Oblighetto" by Jack McDuff,
"Gotta Take It With You" by The Trend,
and "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig.

One Sausage!
A Piece of Warm Bread!

Breakin' Codes

What makes a good mix CD?

It depends on the listener,
but one thing I enjoy is when the DJ knows their music inside and out,
to where they're playing puzzles with the songs they play
and the records they scratch within.
The cover art, a play on the infamous DaVinci code,
suggests that perhaps there are codes and puzzles within.
In other words, one has to dig deeper than the surface to find the code.
Perhaps in this case, one has to go past the clever cover to see
if there is any trickery involved.

Let's get this out of the way right now,
John Doe of the 1200 Hobos is a master at what he does.
"Popular Fallacies (True Lies)" is a very intelligent mix CD
that not only shows his skills on the turntables,
but also shows how skilled you can be simply by knowing the music you play.
By doing this, he sets himself apart from the competition
and into a world that has been explored by a select few.

"Popular Fallacies (True Lies)" is the perfect example of how all mixes should be done,
but not everyone is going to go out of their way to add mental skill to their music.

This is on a much higher level.

On Another Level!

We've Got Evidence

Feelin' Blue

Although this disc is in mono sound,
this has the feel of a mixtape by the Diabolical Biz markie.
Unlike the Pete Rock & Lord Finesse on the same series,
this dude freestyles perfectly and goes nuts on the tables.

Seriously, you could get scared that he scratch up his own record collection into oblivion.
The number of tracks here are mind boggling

Smooth Like Butter

Peanut Butter Wolf on the Mix This time
Quality as Always in The Badmeaninggood Series

Below is a track list with PBWolf's own liner notes, which are not included in the album.

1-Grandmaster Flash-"New Adventures of Grandmaster Flash"
The original version of the song is broken up into two parts that have nothing to do with each other. I love the second part, which is what I used here. It's a take off on Run DMC's "Sucker MCs". There were so many takes on that beat after it came out. Before that, everybody's music was happy and cluttered and "Sucker MCs" was so stripped down and aggressive. But back to THIS song, the chanting in it is a perfect party vibe. I also decided to use the first part of it in my intro since it has a lot of character, with the slap bass and Woody Woodpecker laugh (which was first used on "Techno Scratch" by Knights of the Turntable).

2-Lord Alibaski-"Top Gun"
Anything produced by 45 King circa the late '80's is gold. He was the leader of that era. I had him remix my first single "Run The Line" in '97. I felt like I was talking to God when I called him, but his lack of any ego helped me get over my nerves real quick. He gave me a remix and I rejected it, telling him the beat was already used my X-Clan. Then he told me he did their first single, which I couldn't believe until I went back and looked at the record. I said I wanted a classic, simple bassline/ drumbeat track like his "Microphone Fiend" remix and he went back and gave me one. He did the remix for $1500. A couple of months later, he did "Hard Knock Life" for Jay Z (whom I opened for at a 300 capacity club a year earlier) and "Stan" for Eminem and I thought, good thing I grabbed him while he was affordable.

3-45 King-"Funk Box"
This is a cover of the Master Dom Committee's record, but I like the production on this one much more. This is one of those album cuts I happened across from a 45 King breakbeat that gets the crowd every time. Really similar to "The 900 Number". I love the singer cuz he sounds like an older, gospel trained vocalist, but over the raw drums, it sounds unlike anything else.

4-Iron Butterfly-"Soul Experience"
I'm a sucker for '60's psychedelic music. I love the confidence in his voice and wish I could work with a vocalist who sounds like this (or like Steve Arrington). Iron Butterfly is one of those groups reached millions due to the success of "In A Gadda Da Vida". Their other stuff is really good as well, yet you can always find all of their albums in the dollar bin.

5-Johnny Hammond-"Fantasy"
Classic Mizel Brothers production. This one puts you in a good mood, no matter what you're going through at the time. I remember playing this at a small bar in LA and Rich Medina from Philly came up to me and asked what it was. I admire him as a DJ and felt like I must have been on the right track doing that to him. When I showed him what it was, he said, "Oh, I got this album, but slept on this cut." Even better.

6-Roy Ayers-"Cant You See Me"
Everyone loves "Runnin Away", but not too many people check for this one. It's an album cut from the late '70's, but a British label reissued it as a 12" in the mid-'80's. I bought the 12" in Japan last year for an offensive price, then came back to the US and found one later for a fraction of it. I played it out that trip and have been playing it ever since.

7-Alicia Meyers-"Don't Stop What You're Doin"
I first heard this sampled by Jay Dee for the Slum Village song with Busta Ryhmes. I always wanted to know where they got it, and one day I bought the album with "I Wanna Thank You" on it", and coincidentally this was the first track on it. That intro is such a strong hook that it could be it's own song. And the synthesizers that come in later crack me up because they're SOOOOOO OFF BEAT. Either the person playing them was in the other room or they just didn't care.

8-Bernard Wright-"The Master Rocker"
Another strong groove. This song sounds EXACTLY like "Chic Cheer" from Chic. They both came out at the same time. Somebody had to "borrow" the groove from the other. Not sure who. The girl talking nasty is pretty funny. I decided to add my own synths at the end to make it fit with the next track.

9-B Beat Girls-“Jungle Swing"
I bought this when it came out back in '83. It's produced by Matt Noble, who I buy anything with his name attached to. The scratching absolutely cracks me up. First of all, no crossfader was used. Secondly, at one point, you can actually hear the record they're scratching skip and they keep going. They must have not had much money for studio time. The drum sounds and programming are what do it for me though. There are 3 versions of this song on the 12" and I took my favorite elements of each one. The vocals are over the top, but "when the club's hoppin", it only adds to the excitement.

10-Human League-"Hard Times"
This is when hip hop, breakdancing, electro, and new wave were all interchangeable. Another record I bought when it came out. I first heard it at a Flea Market by a group of Cholos gathered around a boom box, popping to it. It was on a mix tape, but played twice as fast for people to pop to. Back then, they'd speed everything up twice as fast, "Planet Rock", "Numbers", everything.

11-Joe Jackson-"Steppin Out"
I love the sound of this rhythm machine. It gives it a Soft Cell feel. But, over all, the song writing is the strong point. Not necessarily the lyrics, but the chords and arrangements. Joe Jackson is so funky. Probably my favorite song on the whole CD. It's one of those strong emotional songs that makes you feel happy and sad at the same time.

12-Cold Crush Brothers-"Punk Rock Rap"
The precursor to "Push It". The whole feeling of it. This song is way too fast to try to rap over, but I love all the chanting they do. Kinda reminds me of the B52's stuff. Super catchy. I decided to leave out the "Oh My God" sample. Sorry, Doug E Fresh fans.

13-Michael White-"Let Love Be Your Magic Carpet"
Brazilian influenced, disco/jazz album cut. This is another one where the intro groove could practically be a song in it's own. Overall, this song sounds like a weird dream. I bought this album looking for samples to make hip hop with, but ended up playing it out when I DJ. Usually over the dancefloor's head when I play, but fuck it. I guess it's tempo makes it intimidating to dance to. I know I'd look funny dancing to it (or dancing to anything for that matter).

14-Prince Far I-"Blackmon"
If 45 King is God in the production sense, Prince Far I is what He'd sound like. I love the call and response between the singing and rapping. Such a good, dirty recording overall. I wish I could record drums like that now. How'd they get the high hats to sound like that? I decided to loop the rhythm at the end.

15-Jungle Brothers-"I'm Gonna Do You"
When they first came out, they changed hip hop. They had such deep crates, but more importantly knew how to put songs together. They integrated singing without making it corny. They used elements of jazz, reggae, soul, rock, etc. It's bold to compare yourself to Bambattaa, but Baby Bam deserves the title because they really upheld the concepts of hip hop origins, while changing it. When people talk about "forward thinking" and "genre bending" today, I think, go back to '88 and listen to them. Every song on this album influenced the future of music.

16-Charizma & PB Wolf-"My World Premiere"
The production I'm most proud of, even though musically, it's not much more than a half bar loop and some scratching. We were at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley recording our album for Hollywood Basics in '92 and had finished our other songs in a shorter time than anticipated. We decided to mess around and this is what came out. In '97, I asked Kenny Parker to play over the loud speakers at the end of the "Step Into A World" video shoot. KRS One started nodding his head, and asked Kenny what it was. I told him it was me and he begged me for a copy. I said I had just given my last copy to his brother/DJ, Kenny. The next day I gave him a copy and he introduced me to Red Alert and told me to give him one.

17-Kenny Burke-"Rising to the Top" (Snowboy remix)
Another British record I bought in Japan. Why he was a one hit wonder that nobody has tried to resurrect yet, I'll never understand. This one freaks people out because everyone knows the song, but nobody's ever heard this version. It says it's a remix, but it sounds like they actually re-did the song from scratch. Snowboy has some great stuff on the Acid Jazz label that reminds me of Marvin Gaye with the chord progressions and all that. This one is definitely last song of the night music. Good night.

"...Wolf clearly sees himself as an evangelist,
preaching the word of rap's neglected forebears,
and his mix is valuable both musically and musicologically..."
