J. Period Presents…OutKast ReFixed

OutKast’s debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was introduced to the world 23 years ago.  So J. Period crafted a mix together in celebration of its anniversary.  Recorded live during his set at the recent party Art Of Storytellin’: Brooklyn, J. Period blends classics from Big Boi and André 3000‘s catalog with a variety of instrumentals, such as “B.O.B.” over “Panda,” “Art of Storytellin” over “Children’s Story,” “Skew It on the BBQ” over “Truffle Butter” and more.

“23 years ago today, an album came out that changed the course of hip-hop history forever,” J. Period says. “Before Outkast put Atlanta on the map, hip-hop was East and West; Outkast opened a bridge to a whole new world in the South, and paved the way for other cities to brand their own distinct styles of hip hop. It’s an honor to take part in Vibe’s celebration of this milestone and pay tribute to Outkast’s catalog with this new mixtape. Remixing Dre and Big Boi verses over new and classic beats is my way of showing the timelessness of their catalog, and the greatness of these two visionary artists. Plus: hearing Andre verses back-to-back over new beats tunes your ears to really dissect his lyrics in a new way. No question: 3 Stacks is one of the greatest MCs of all time.”

Check out the mix below.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One)

Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne form like Voltron to become production duo Tuxedo.  The pair stopped by Good Records—the shop, not the label. With tied bandanas over their eyes, they grabbed up three random records to sample.

Although the soundtrack to Blue Thunder had them somewhat thrown off, they also came up with a 12-inch single by Logg, and the Gamble & Huff sure shot, MFSB’s Love is the Message.

You already know Jake One’s style: from Chance the Rapper to 50 Cent, Drake, and Fun, the versatile Seattle beat smith gets it in wherever he feels. Hawthorne’s light-hearted brand of blue-eyed soul has won him fans since his 2009 Stones Throw debut. Tuxedo’s danceable tracks have an undeniable pop sensibility, they also show a heavy G-Funk and 80s electro influence, which shines through on the beat they built for us.

“We got the disco kick offa Log, the rest of the drums from MFSB, and kind of a dramatic sound offa the Blue Thunder soundtrack,” said Hawthorne, who also added his soulful crooning to the sonic stew. “And that’s how you craft a whompin’-ass banger, Tuxedo style.”

So check out the creation of the record in the video down below.  Also go check out there new album Tuxedo II now on iTunes.

The Get Down: Part II (Trailer)

April 7th can’t came fast enough.  The trailer starts out like an episode of Inside the Music, following The Get Down Brothers in their transition into the mainstream all while clashing with  disco.  Netflix describes it as:

“A mythic saga of dreams, desire, soul and sound, The Get Down chronicles the epic musical evolution from disco to hip hop that defined 1970s New York City – as told by the relationships, struggles, triumphs, and artistry of the South Bronx teens who saw it through.”

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The PLAYlist “Chasing Goosebumps”

The album was recorded in just 7 days with the entire process documented via Facebook Live.  Some of the world most renowned artists who contributed to the album were The Roots’ James Poyser, TDE’s new artist SiR, Eric Lau Masego, from the group Foreign Exchange Eric Roberson, and of course Dayne Jordan, and many more.

According to DJ Jazzy Jeff:

Chasing Goosebumps exemplifies the sincerity and soul-bearing emotion that only comes from unhindered creativity. Not genre-specific, the album is an eclectic, yet cohesive, mix of soul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, pop and samba. From the melodies to the lyrics, Chasing Goosebumps is moving and provocative, tackling topics like social injustice, relationships, love and the music industry. Vocalist Glenn Lewis serves as the perfect vessel for these stories of frustration, anger, hate, inspiration, love and hope. His distinctly familiar voice navigates the range of topics and music styles with effortless delivery.

Chasing Goosebumps is musically as diverse as the artists who brought it to life, The PLAYlist. More than a supergroup, The PLAYlist is a movement that promotes authenticity in music and empowers artists to remain true to their craft. For The PLAYlist, Chasing Goosebumps is reassurance that real, meaningful music is not a lost art. Chasing Goosebumps is not the end of an era. It’s just the beginning

Rhythm Roulette w/ BINK!

To me BINK! is up there as being on of my all time favorite producers.  The way he brings records together with that hard, grittiness, smoothness is just remarkable.  His drums are also out of this world, I really enjoy the records he produces.

In this episode of Rhythm Roulette, BINK! heads to the record shop , The Groove, in Norfolk, VA.  He does what most all the producers that are featured on the show.  Blindfolded as he picks three records from the Dilla section.  Side note: You know that you are a influential producer when record stores have a section of records that you used to make your music.  Anyway watch how he uses the records he picked to create in my eye a wonderful banger.

Brand new video for Run The Jewels’ song “Rubble Kings Theme.”

This is some very cool animation and an amazing track. It follows a young woman named “Little Nina” as she walks the streets of New York and gets brutally attacked by a rival street gang. She goes to her own gang for protection and the result is animated warfare inspired by the pulp fun of movies like “The Warriors.”

Kinda heavy stuff in here. But like the song, the visuals go hard and without mercy. Nothing too crazy, so I hope y’all check it out and enjoy.

Rhythm Roulette w/Scoop DeVille

DeVille was no doubt influenced by Dre and how he repurposed P-Funk growing up in Los Angeles, but dude can seemingly reimagine whatever. He flips the Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody,” precisely chopping the hook. Pat Swayze was probably dirty dancing in his grave to that joint. Then he laces Aztec Two Step’s twangy folk guitars with quick hi-hats and bass drums, which will loosen your license plate holder from the trunk rattle, before layering with vocal samples from his library. If that Aztec beat ends up on somebody’s project in the near future, it would not be a surprise. It’s a shame he didn’t get a chance to work with James Taylor’s brand of blues-y folk rock. It seems like just a few clicks from DeVille and fire come through the speakers.
