Equalibrum - Time Management (song performed in real time on an Akai MPD24 )

Discovered this on a DJ blog. Equalibrium composed this beforehand then performs it live in his bedroom. Makes me want to go out and buy an MPD24. He manages to "scratch" on this thing towards the end of the track, kinda cool but kinda cheesy, he even says so on the description if you go to the YouTube link. Be sure to check out some of the other videos at the bottom when this one is done or just click menu, some dope shit there including Pete Rock chopping up a sample and creating a beat.

Black, Rock & Ron - Stop The World (RCA 1989)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For the most part I post up my favorite old school rap albums and singles and this LP easily finds its way into my top 10 old school albums. I know it's not rated in most peoples top albums but I'm different and I like that. Black, Rock & Ron exemplify everything I love about hip-hop, most notably fun, intelligent, braggadocio b-boy rhymes and funky, sample driven production and break beats with that dope old school scratching that's on time. This album has what most albums in 89 had with positive messages of peace and unity on the title track, bragging about Rap Life, the token house track which is actually really good to sex raps with all three members (no pun intended) taking turns with Yvonne. Hailing from Hollis Queens, Lord Black (David Cootryer), The Ruler Master Rock (Gregg Walsh), and Ron Scratch (Ron Walsh) released their first single "Hard Rap" on Next Plateau in 86 under the name the Vicious Four. Released during the emergence of the "New School" where samplers and drum machines such as the Lynn Drum and the SP-12 hit the market, producers and hip-hop artists were better able to create a less expensive and more complex structure to tracks that wasn't previously allowed without having connections or a backing band. In 1987 Black, Rock & Ron hooked up with Jazzy Jay who produced their next single "That's How I'm Livin" also on Next Plateau. At this point they apparently found management by the one and only Rush Town at the request of LL Cool J. Then getting signed to RCA Records and featuring co-production by Tony Sims & Thomas Davis (who?) and executive production by Jurggen Korduletsch (who?), Black, Rock and Ron put together the material for their debut album Stop The World. With engineers Paul C, DJ Doc, and Skeff Anselm at the boards, a few 12 inch singles, and a couple videos things were looking bright for the groups future. They even were involved in the Hip-Hop Artist Against Apartheid Ndodemnyama (Free South Africa) anti-apartheid song, but like so many rap artists, Black, Rock & Ron just seemed to fall off the face of the Earth into obscurity.

Public Enemy - You're Gonna Get Yours 12" Single (Def Jam 1987)

Image Hosted by

And another special treat for all of my visitors. I pretty much went into it on the Bring The Noise post but I gotta say something about one of my all time favorite 12's. I mean come on - the Johnny Juice Rosado I mean Terminator X Getaway Mix is just about one of the best scratch tracks ever, period. I wore the hell out of that song back in the day, and FINALLY recently found the mp3's so now I'll be wearing out the digital file if that's possible. It's funny, I've seen alot of dudes on Bust The Facts or other places on the net say things like they lost their vinyl collection in a fire or their cassette collection in a flood and I gotta tell ya - I'm one of those guys!!! in my case it was a flood, lol seriously! - and these PE 12's (also PE # 1) were among the ones that I was REALLY REALLY pissed about losing. My collection I lost was mostly 12's, some LP's and about 150 cassettes. I only have a handful of tapes that survived to this day and thanks to Dread, I've slowly built up my collection to what it was and even larger, even though their all in mp3 form, fuck - I don't care, as long as I get to hear all my favorites again. Dread was sharing his collection with me a long time before he and Jimmy started Bust The Facts, so now alot of those other poor souls who lost their collections are slowly building them back up to what they previously were. If you're like me and cherish old school rap, then people like Dread, Jimmy, Travis, Kido, EMDEE, DrOK, etc. are a godsend sharing their favorite LP's, singles, and insight. Please take the time to thank, praise & share knowledge at all your daily stops - it really does take alot of time and energy to post up albums, write-ups and shit like that. Ok? Eventually all of us will be gone and others will replace us but just a quick comment really does mean alot.

ANYWAY!! - lol - on to the record again. PE really broke new ground on this single with Rebel Without A Pause, recorded after Yo! Bum Rush The Show. The most notable part of the song was Hank Shocklee's sample of the trumpet glissando from The J.B.'s The Grunt and is easily one of the most memorable sounds on the planet. A quote from an interview with Shocklee reveals some interesting tidbits behind the making of the track: "’Rebel’ is interesting because that was originally done with the only sampler that I had at the time which was the Mirage. And the Mirage, if you know the Mirage, it’s a 4-bit sampler that gives you three seconds of sample time and that’s it. And it was [as if] the stars lined it up for me. I was doing this thing again, and I was trying to catch it and I caught the right piece of it in three seconds. Because one thing about the Mirage is when you have three seconds, and you know you only got three seconds, and your piece is really three and a half seconds long, but you really want to catch the best three seconds out of that, well, you got to keep doing it until you catch it right the way you want it". Another very interesting fact is the drums. At first listen it seems like just the Funky Drummer chopped up a little with another programmed beat for the chorus. "That record has four different beats, one is the change beat, one is the original verse beat, the other is the short verse beat, and the fourth being the ride on the beat. And it has ten different turnarounds, all those little kicks, all that stuff is programmed, you know, each one does not repeat itself. So it gives you the illusion of the record is constantly getting better as opposed to it just staying linear". Also noteworthy is Terminator X's rock 'n' roll scratch (yes that's really him this time). "When he first did that piece, you know, the Rock 'n' Roll part, when Chuck said: ”Terminator X“ I was expecting, something (shows something huge with his arms). And then he came in and he would - (makes very small moves with his hands) and then he came up with ’tchgtchgtch’ – I was disappointed when I first heard it. You know, I took it home and I listened to it. And then I said: ”There is something in here that I like but there is something that I didn’t like about it.“ And so, when I went back to the studio, I had the engineer pull off the bottom on it because there was a lot more bass in it. And it just sounded muddy to me. Once Steve pulled the bottom of the whole shit popped out like crazy and it was my favorite piece in life. And even to the point when he took the ’Pee Wee Herman’ ’Get-a-get-a-get’ (scratches in the air) to give it a extra like (waves with his arms) – oh shit – I thought that that was probably the most brilliant piece of scratch work on a record to me ever".

Public Enemy - Bring The Noise 12" Single (Def Jam 1987)

Image Hosted by

Classic right here. One of the most important songs ever recorded. This was the track that launched The Bomb Squad's multi-layered noise on a world in need of beautiful chaos on wax. I could be wrong but I'm sure this dropped before Rebel Without A Pause which would be the next runner-up for supreme sonic assault on the masses in the work of Public Enemy. Either way I was extremely happy with both when they dropped and my life's purpose was complete at that moment in time - this is where I feel hip-hop can contribute to the spiritual path as well as the ego's - both tracks are now part of my energetic matrix and make me that much stronger in spirit. No shit. Originally released on the soundtrack for the film Less Than Zero, and as a 12 inch, here is where the B-Side doesn't win with a slightly altered version of Sophisticated Bitch but actually it's one of my favorite PE joints from their debut with sweet guitar by Bill Stephney & Vernon Reid from Living Colour. Enjoy!!

8 Year Old Japanese Girl DJ Sara Cuts Shit Up - Future Champion Turntablist

Found this around the net and to my surprise she wrecks shit. Great skills all around - looking forward to see what she does with it in the future. I'd love to see her cut up some old school beats, most of the beats turntablists cut over are on some wack techno shit. These aren't too bad though, a little Rock It chop up and an Electro-ish beat.

Another video with her brother? DJ Ryusei on the wheels of steel. Damn, look at those stacks behind em!!

LL still has it! He rips through Radio, The Boomin Sytem and I'm Bad with precision. I knew one of my favorite MC's still had it in him to school these new MC's on how rap is supposed to be done. Now only if he could release another classic.

I've been bumping LL alot lately so i'm on the hunt for some 12's - so stay tuned!

Dream Warriors - And Now, The Legacy Begins (Island 1991)

Sorry I haven't been posting up much stuff lately, I've been busy with a second job recently and it's hard to get to posting things regularly as I'd like (yeah right you've heard it before). But anyways I'm posting these two albums for now as they're slightly similar in style. For anyone who hasn't heard either of these, well then you're in for a treat because they fall into the Jazz Hip Hop category and I know just about everyone loves that style. I'd love to write up a nice intro for these albums but I'm tired as fuck so I'll just leave the AMG bio for Dream Warriors and a very informative article for The Future Sound, sorry.

A pair of deft, intelligent rappers based in Toronto, King Lou and Capital Q formed Dream Warriors and released one of the finest alternative rap records of the era, 1991's And Now, the Legacy Begins. The pair began working together in 1989, organizing their own Beat Factory Productions with Rupert Gayle and signing to 4th & Broadway. The single "Wash Your Face in My Sink" prefaced the release of And Now, the Legacy Begins, and another track, "My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style," became an early touchstone in the jazz-rap movement. Both singles hit the Top 20 in Britain, while in their own country the LP went gold and collected a Juno award. Unfortunately, the LP title proved ironic; four long years after their debut, the duo finally returned with Subliminal Simulation. It was barely received at all, especially in America, and the band's final album, The Master Plan, wasn't even released in America.

I'll eventually post up Subliminal Stimulation which in my opinion is quite good. Enjoy these two classic lp's!

The Future Sound - The Whole Shabang, Vol. 1 (Atlantic 1992)

In the early 90s, The Future Sound (of New Rochelle, New York) were wide-eyed new jack signees on big time Atlantic Records managed (along with Original Flavor) by the brothers Darien and Damon Dash (later of Roc-A-Fella Records fame). Shabang is an undeservedly overlooked work that teems with layered, bouncy rhythms and fantastic, mellifluous rhymes. Emcees Flashback and Relay trade the wordiest of verses in refreshingly unassuming tones that invite flattering, if constraining comparisons to Tribe and De La. Although plainly indebted to the D.A.I.S.Y. Age’s style of speak and coolly narcotic vibe, The Future Sound crew innovates on its influences by sprinkling a measure of humble populism into its ghetto futuristic jams. Shabang’s distinctiveness lies in its abstruse accessibility, the way it replicates the sweetly melodic eccentricity of “Plug Tunin’,” infuses it with the dirty club groove of “Youthful Expression” and leaves the ceremony in the hands of a couple of long-winded, idealistic, pop-culture obsessed everymen. 3XDope and the UMCs released similarly spirited, unconventional debut long-players that have since aged rather nicely, but neither group was half as adept as TFS at smuggling cerebral subject matter into grooves built to bump so lovely. After Critical Beatdown, Shabang is the closest approximation of Rammelzee’s psychedelic freestyles ever committed to wax during rap’s Middle Skool. Flashback and Relay flow with no end in sight while referencing TV shows, records, and books at a breakneck pace rarely achieved by the Native Tongues or their myriad associates. Unlike the frantic namedropping employed by Das EFX, the allusions on this record provide the lengthy raps with additional meaning and substantive context. Like most any rap group then or now, TFS reserve numerous moments for burning wack emcees, keeping the party moving, or speaking on trifling honies. However, they also devote a significant portion of this hugely eclectic, experimental record to a straightforward and unpretentious dialogue with their audience about everyday realities, including those of the harsh and unpleasant variety. Even the most comprehensible track, the Sly Stone beatjack “The Function,” sees the duo implore the party people to let the music take control and yet remain open enough to digest the heady lyrics. It’s a most difficult challenge for certain, as the sounds range from the soulful and noisy “Flashback Relay and the Whole Shabang” to the danceable but dizzying “Lady/What a Bro To Do?” to the sparkling pop of “Pixie Groove.” Nearly every track is a highly distracting head-nodder and TFS get infinite dap for refusing to dumb any of their material down or cakewalk their way to clarity.

New layout & request

I just wanted to say thanks to you all who've expressed appreciation for what I'm doing here and also wanted to request something I've been wanting for a while... A LOGO! So if anyone with skills wants to put in some time for me I would be eternally grateful. Not really sure what I'm looking for but something that'll work with the new layout. The Bust The Facts logo is pretty cool, so maybe something similar? Maybe a dookie rope , three finger ring, boombox or something like those thrown in? I think I want a real picture/s with graphic writing, if that makes sense (again like the Bust The Facts logo). I don't know, if anyone has any ideas or input let me know. Out for now, Peace.

They'll also host files almost indefinitely so for the time being I'll continue to use them. Let me know if you guys have any problems with them. Enjoy the Casanova & Rud 12's!
