Checking out disc 2 of Fader Suite903 No.15 now.
2-6 Deborah Jordan Home
This track is exclusive to the mix. Was unaware of her before this.
A youtube search turned up one tacky live jazz show that she was featured at. Not worth posting.
Anyone know of any decent tracks out there featuring Deborah Jordan other than this?

This one's nice too. Also claims to be exclusive to this mix.
Youtube on this one is completely fruitless.

ESPECIALLY nice. Possibly the best on this disc yet.
― burnt_station (PappaWheelie V), Tuesday, 6 January 2009 02:30 (4 years ago) Permalink
So much of this mix is like early bootlegged Sa-Ra, all off-kilter beat programming.
Including this Cuba After Market & Mushinah jam, which is the jam.
SOO much good stuff on here (with a fair amount of filler that doesn't end up being distracting)
Q-Tip coming off like the Coleman Hawkins on this affair. Like, the old guard who is down, but not fully developed into what's going on.
This Common/Lily Allen track is surprisingly great. Like, GREAT great.
Angie Stone sounds exactly like Angie Stone, kinda O_o why is it on here? Not a bad jam, but typical.

Eh, I get "freeform" out of Muldrow's tunes, whereas I get "poorly structured" out of Sy Smith's. One seems to use it as a virtue unto itself, whereas the other just seems to not know any better. I know you don't like GAM at all, so you're not likely to agree.
― The Reverend, Tuesday, 6 January 2009 02:44 (4 years ago) Permalink
Wait, what Rev?
Yeah, Common's lyrics are soo ugh, but that beat is hot. Different than the rest of the disc, but you already stated aversion to Dilla-esque production (which that track is).
The album is like most mixed cd's that comes with mags, full of filler, but the idea that even you would dismiss that mushinah jam comes off as ilm contrarian style.
Having only heard disc 2 and finding 5 songs for regular rotation is a better track record than most of my recent acquisitions.

I didn't offer any opinion on the Muhsinah jam!
― The Reverend, Tuesday, 6 January 2009 03:10 (4 years ago) Permalink
I haven't heard it.
The "not-particularly-outstanding album" was Common's Finding Forever.
And the Common/Lallen beat doesn't sound like Dilla to me, it just sounds like Kanye being weak sauce. All of Ye's other beats on Finding Forever are better, and so is the Dilla beat! And the will.i.am beat!
― The Reverend, Tuesday, 6 January 2009 03:13 (4 years ago) Permalink
WHOOPS, sorry, once again, reading comprehension problems on my part.
I never heard the Common album.
And good call, like a Kanye/Dilla babby, which is more Kanye.
For whatever reason, the mix in question gets "normal" in the last few songs.
On a side note, I still cannot find a taste for Dudley Perkins. The G&D track on here is |>|>
― burnt_station (PappaWheelie V), Tuesday, 6 January 2009 03:19 (4 years ago) Permalink
Kanye said he was specifically trying to imitate Dilla in his production on that album (which was recorded in the year after Dilla passed)
I don't got any love for Dudley P. either. What a cornball.
― The Reverend, Tuesday, 6 January 2009 03:23 (4 years ago) Permalink
I do like Finding Forever, though in all it's non-outstandingness. It is the rap equivalent of comfort food. No surprises, but feels just right. I just can't stand that particular song cause the beat is meh (I did discover the sample on that Rotary Connection album haha) and Common's raps are the worst he'd done before his new, utterly sad, album.
― The Reverend, Tuesday, 6 January 2009 03:27 (4 years ago) Permalink
So why so many G&D collabs???

Checking you lastfm shows we both listend to Strange and Ladies Sing back to back (although I changed my tag to show Leron as the artist, feat. Tiombe).
When you need more GAM, I advise picking up that Pattie Blingh project. It's quickly finding a place in my rotation.

I figured out exactly what is awesome about Tiombe Lockhart and it that all her songs sound like sparse demos of songs that are supposed to be very lush, but work in their stripped-down states anyway.

I wonder if that has to do with her obsession with the band Suicide? She's grown on me a lot over the past week or two.

I liked Lily Allen for about 3 month when I first heard her album and haven't been able to stand her since, so my opinions on anything Lily Allen related are probably taken with a grain of salt.

Yeah i'd agree with this exception, i just really like the floatiness with the rolling piano, poppy and exhilarating to me. BTW this was Duff/G Rap level of o_0 when i realized who it was.
But back to this excellent thread. The things I like a lot: Musinah, Foreign Exchange, Commix, 2nd JDavey, old "hey love" sa-ra from another thread. Things not sure: Little Dragons, Asplund. Things dislike: 1st JDavey. Things I have to contribute: 0 :( Sowwy.
(Anyone know the sample in the Musinah song? Madlib used it for "Happy Home" in Liberation.)

Something about The Foreign Exchange's "House of Cards" struck me as a bit odd and I figured out what it was. It's in 7/8 time.

Listening to Heavy's Jazz Money$$ right now. It's more toward the J*Davey/Janelle Monae precocious space-girl end of this, although they try to hamfist it with the lyrics in the way Monae would. Lots of tweaked synths and showy/skippy drum programming and the occaional talkbox. My favorite tracks as on one listen are "Countdown" and "Mylittlesong". Live clip of the former:

Yeah, it's been my new favorite this week. I've pretty much gone "If She Breaks Your Heart" -> "Daykeeper" -> "House of Cards"
― Et tu, Crut? (The Reverend), Sunday, 11 January 2009 08:21 (4 years ago) Permalink
offtopic, but I obsess over documenting hit songs that are in 12/8
i couldn't figure out why and how i got on this, then i realized it stems from my love affair with sly & the family stone's hot fun in the summer time. i have never gotten over that song being in regular rotation.
12 gives it so much room to stretch out the strings and such, while the piano is banging away in 8th notes. this quickly made me realize that the impressions' "it's alright" was built on the same idea, which probably all stemmed from fats domino's cover of blueberry hill.
despite 12/8 hits (billy swan's i can help, genesis' misunderstanding, toto's hold the line, whitney's i'm your baby tonight, etc), odd time signatures beyond 3/4, 6/8, and 12/8 freaked me out when i was little thanks to hearing dave brubeck's take five (5/8) in a local car add when i was maybe 11. got the time out album when i was about 18. became a fan.
i've since gotten into odd time sigs in a serious way (thus, becoming a stereolab fanatic)
― i miss cleo :-( (PappaWheelie V), Sunday, 11 January 2009 08:31 (4 years ago) Permalink
