K-Def & Damu on Redef

August 10, 2011

Redefinition Recordings is one of the very few Hip Hop labels you need to keep your eyes on in 2011. Part label owner Damu has kicked off his indie 700 series which will sporadically release remixes, collabs or whatever he feels like on 7″. The 1st slice in this series are the instrumentals of his DWG release. I wasn’t huge on the vocal versions when they dropped, but Truly Get Yours has grown on me over the last months and I am now kicking myself for not picking up the Ice coloured version on vinyl. I have become extremely fond of Damu’s productions since I picked up How It Should Sound about 18 months ago and will continue to purchase whatever he puts out on wax. My point being that if your reading this you need a copy!!

The other 7″ that arrived from Redef was by K-Def. When I think K-Def i think Real Live shit. He has been around since the mid 90’s and worked often alongside the legendary Marley Marl. The brick city producer has provided 3 instrumental cuts on this release. He has even done a little retake of a Pete Rock’s classic calling it For Def’ Sake. My pick though is Times Change, a 3 minute trip using dreamy soul, jazz, funk, rocky samples.

The 2 babies are out now on limited coloured vinyl and from what I can gather almost sold out.
