Although I'm tempted to divide a line between Kedar's Neo-Soul, OK Player, Soulquarians, and this, let's PLEASE not turn this thread into a tiresome debate over what the boundaries are.

If we just remain in the center here of what's what, we can continue with the jams for now.

I'm kinda dissappointed in the G&D project, but the 2Tall feat G&D so far isn't bad.

Waiting for Tiombe Lockhart & J*Davey to come in.

Haven't listend, but Steve Spacek's Space Shift came in. Dimension 5ive has given me a slight bit of cynicism about the listen though.

What more should I know about Bangladesh (insert joek here)?

no duh rev but you know i'm partially right darn it

Dimension 5ive, Sunday, 21 December 2008 05:32 (5 years ago) Permalink

it's easy to keep going back in time on this, the black avant-garde did not even start with sly stone as you know but a lot of this stuff sounds like dubbed-out remixes of there's a riot goin' on

I was more talking in regards to the start of this current scene (as I'm sure you were) but lets not get lost in these sort of arguments. Please.

Oh, and why do I have to be the big booster for the Foreign Exchange album?

Non-rap Bangladesh:

Kelis - "Bossy," "Aww Shit"
Beyonce - "Diva"
Ciara - "Hotline"
M.I.A. - "Hit That"

Shawnna's "RPM" (obv. rap, though) never got enough attention.

"Sa-Ra ft. Rozzi Daime - So Special"

this track is like something from 1992.

titchy (titchyschneiderMk2), Sunday, 21 December 2008 13:46 (5 years ago) Permalink

Some other releases, not yet specifically cited, for which I will rep:

Pattie Blingh & the Akebulan 5 - Sagala (GA Muldrow plus a little Declaime/Perkins; later Samiyam mix of "To: Re" is also pretty much messed up)

Dabrye's off-center R&B'ish remix of King Midas Sound's "One Ting"

Steve Spacek's pair of solo 12" for Jazzy Sport

Rahsaan Patterson - "Pitch Black," with the Cure bassline and bubbling tarpit FX:

i thought it sounded like chante moore...

im reinvestigating this last van hunt album. more of a new wave influence on it but it just seems so derivative. some nice touches here and there but barring a few tracks on each album where it all comes together, he still seems to have absolutely no certain identity of his own.

he sings too tepidly too. argh. i just want to slap him.

Anyone know a good place to get mixtapes (err, CDs) of this stuff? The bling47 website isn't selling any at the moment...

Will check out a lot of the stuff in this thread. I like that first Foreign Exchange youtube vid.

Tim F, Monday, 22 December 2008 00:25 (5 years ago) Permalink

I know we're doing our best to steer clear of boundaries here, but I think Foreign Exchange is more of a Darien Brockington/Eric Roberson/Dwele thing.

DJ Spinna's neo-soul efforts probably too.

also i dont think it works the same way in the u.s. as it does in the u.k. as far as 'underground-mainstream'

theres a really niche-but-large slow jamz audience out there that some of these artists can easily get slotted into

3 weeks pass...

Not sure if this belongs here. Was listening to the Diskotopia label releases the past few days, trying to figure out why they're hyped in a way, and this Fujimoto Tetsuro record stood out after a couple of listens. It's nothing remarkable, but hits a sweet spot of like IDM-versioning Rock the Boat-era Aaliyah.
