The Shadow 4-Track Era 3xCD

DJ Shadow needs no introducton as his earlier releases on Mo Max are timeless. Anything he puts on from this period I happily buy on sight. His latest offering is a 3xCD collection recorded between 1990-1992 with his Yamaha MT-100 4-track cassette recorder……

She is not putting on her house shoes

(Verse 1 from 5)

Upon 1st glance a few months ago I thought this was another James Brown RIP mix, I wasn’t overly interested in hearing the funky drummer being juggled for the zillionth time so I passed on it. Then last week I saw some comments by some respected DJ’s/MC’s so I thought I would go back and actually give the snippets a listen.

Before we knew it Soul:R had signed him for an LP after hearing his tune Global Enemies with a local Düsseldorf MC. The last few years have gone so quickly and thankfully Lynx & Kemo’s album The Raw Truth is finally here. 

I reached Lynx about a month ago & this is what he had to say……………………

Hmmm Ahhhh

Paris based Favorite Recordings is quickly becoming one of my favourite labels of recent times. With a solid string of varied releases including Onra‘s experimental beats to the new funk from Mr Day, we now have the new 7″ gatefold EP from Swaziland’s Dwilt Sharpp. As the cover & song titles suggests;  this is some sensual pychedelic & soulful stuff.
