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!
