DJ Quik is probably the producer i've listened to the most for the past year and a half, and i kind of love bits of everything. What I love about his sound is how clean it is - he has a real obsessive musician's approach, I think, which appeals to me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmkLgX5XsHw

^^^Thats from his 'new' group The Fixxers which isn't really new cuz its just him and AMG who have been recording together for a long long time.

From his early shit, his first album 'Quik is the Name,' the "Tonite" single, etc are kind of incredible and his first album went plat.

His work with 2nd II None is also some real solid early production work, classic party shit.

His next couple albums are good, and "Safe and Sound" was produced by Suge Knight, but his big step to greatness was circa Rhythmalism where he stepped smoothly into a modern production style, jettisoned the samples and recorded a straight up brilliant party record that sounds like it hasn't aged a day. "We Still Party" is my current ringtone. "So Many Ways," "Thinkin Bout U," reggae on "Bombudd," "El's Interlude" (omg what i wouldn't do for an all-Quik produced El Debarge album, this is the closest you'll get to hip-hop marvin gaye outside of Erick Sermon's "Music").

His albums after are good too and basically follow in this vein - "Trauma" from '05 was one of my favorite rap records, love the tribute to Roger Troutman and "Fandango" with B-Real is brilliant.

I kind of wish Quik would release an entire album in the vein of "Quik's Groove"'s.

There's also his production work, for Pac, for 8ball and MJG ("Buck Bounce" love 4-eva), jada, etc. But his best guest work tended to be for his friends.

Suga Free benefits the most, probably; his album from last year was alright but minus Quik it just wasn't the same magic. Suga Free's first too albums are hot, plus his features with Quik are pretty solid (I recommend both of the "Suga Free: The Features" albums, esp. for "Inside Out" and "Let's Get Together" (pretty sure those are both Quik, no credits on the liners tho)

His dude Mausberg, who was shot around the recording of "Under the Influence," is not really my favorite rapper but Quik occasionally has some nice production work with him and Quik's tribute song to him is powerful stuff. Hi-C's records are alright. I tend to listen to these more for the production than the rapping.

should say "safe and sound was EXECUTIVE produced by suge knight"

deej, Monday, 14 May 2007 18:02 (eleven years ago) Permalink

If you troll around places like Tower and coconuts or just browsing the internet you'll find random comps of Quik-produced records and one-offs with his crew - AMG, Hi-C, Suga Free, Mausberg, etc

I forgot to mention the Penthouse Players Clique! thats some classic old school Quik too

deej, Monday, 14 May 2007 18:38 (eleven years ago) Permalink

he's really such a great party producer, lyrics are never dumbed down, and he evolved in a way that didn't sacrifice his strong suit - like "Tonite" drops when he's 21 and all he wants to do is grab a 40 and get drunk tonight, but by rhythmalism he's adapted to growing up w/ grace - "We still party, we get high/ sometimes we don't feel grown-up and that's no lie." Its like what Vahid was talking about in the beardo thread, about how the music's developed as he's transitioned from early 20s' rave music to hipster club house.

I still haven't heard the first two Hi-C albums ('skanless' and 'swingin') but i've been meaning to, if i can ever find them. maybe i should defend "Hi Life Hustle" more than just saying i just listen to the beats - he's a pretty good rapper

deej, Monday, 14 May 2007 21:32 (eleven years ago) Permalink

deej i like most of your assessment but glossing over Way 2 Fonky is a no-no. Jus Lyke Compton bitch! Not to mention maybe the best quik's groove and a bunch of nasty ass shit. He kind of deferred to the 2nd II None ethos over a lot of it(they were already broken by then iirc?) but his beats are all on point pre-Chronic wild hard funk hooks, love that style but it didn't get much of a heyday before g-funk came in.
u also forgot that one single by Juvenile Committee, though the rest of that album was butt-acious.

tremendoid, Monday, 14 May 2007 21:48 (eleven years ago) Permalink

skanless is a must hear. hi-c is like, ignorantly ignorant when it comes to women and his flow comes and goes(i should say his flow always fits his voice, he had the eazy style 'pleasant scream' going on that could be off-putting) but the beats are almost all dynamite with a couple of duds. Got a classic quik-stable posse cut too. Haven't heard his recent stuff.

tremendoid, Monday, 14 May 2007 21:53 (eleven years ago) Permalink

i dont know why i thought skanless was hard to find, amazon's got it for 10 bucks

i agree about way 2 fonky! - its great too. was that the one that chris rock put in his list, or was that safe + sound?

as far as AMG, i know 'bitch betta have my money' is considered a classic but i had trouble getting into it when i first checked it out

deej, Monday, 14 May 2007 22:38 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Listening to the 'Quik's Groove II' off way 2 fonky right now, i really wish he'd release a dj shadow/rjd2 style instrumental album like this. Good lord, perfect summer weather music.

deej, Monday, 14 May 2007 22:55 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Wow, I'd never connected the dots between "Let's Get Down" & "Smells Like Teen Spirit", probably because I never heard the later 'til well aftfer the fact. Interesting. I absolutely love "Lets Get Down".

The live album is really good. I wouldn't quite put it above Jay-Z Unplugged, but its pretty damn close. But that's the only Quik thing I have. What would you advise for a second Quik purchase?

forksclovetofu, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 02:46 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Ha deej I almost understand why you mentioned beardo but the Quick I've heard always makes me think of Masters of Work more - relaxed svelte disco. Although actually it's more commercial than that. Like, that "Break Bread" song. He should have produced Will Smith - or did he?

I hadn't heard "Hand In Hand", thanks for posting that.

Tim F, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 06:23 (eleven years ago) Permalink

i have nothing to contribute to this thread except that this new conversational turn towards talking about grownup relaxed svelte disco makes me think of snoop ft nate dogg "crazy", which i was kicking back to today and thinking about how it would totally sound great if they did a remix with peabo bryson and grover washington jr. then i listened to some madlib.

"Chromski A.K. Gattlington"?? ELLI$?

also the mobile DJs that spin in the quad fridays during lunch play "can u werk that" almost as much as they play the pack.

moonship journey to baja, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 06:47 (eleven years ago) Permalink

i'm coming around on can u werk that, i'd like to know what rtc was gonna complain about now! its def a song that gets better when hammered thru repetition.

Tim, I think you'd really like the Rhythmalism album if you haven't heard it.

yeah i mean beardo only mentioned cuz that was the context in which moonship was talking about grown folks disco. a similar point of comparison, more locally for me, would be steppin. Sort of the grown 'n' sexy dance music vs. the kids ghetto house/ rap music.

but yeah MAW is an interesting comparison point actually, except i hear more INTENT in MAW's disco to be 'taking it wayyyy back.'

I was talking about this in some other thread, how i wish dudes would make more dance/hip-hop blends - ethan started talking about the blade 2 soundtrack as usual but i'm thinking more like a lot of what Quik does - beats up in the 112 bmp area, rappers who sound comfortable over what is essentially house music.

Tim have you heard Suga Free's "Pimpin in the Year 3000"?

I finally copped Skanless, the Hi-C album, and yeah tremendoid was right its pretty amazing...I like old school Hi-C way more than the modern incarnation, the Eazy E comparison is on point.

deej, Sunday, 20 May 2007 19:21 (eleven years ago) Permalink

to elaborate on the dance/hip-hop blends comment - it seems like a lot of the 'real dance' dudes are 'real rap'-phobic, passing on a lot of great shit that would probably fit really well in dance sets; the only way you can hear something vaguely combining the two is trashy post-hollertronix djs who just mash up, like, justice and lil jon

deej, Sunday, 20 May 2007 19:29 (eleven years ago) Permalink

ha yeah, i'm still whatevs about it but as soon as i wrote that i did think to myself "bet this'll turn out to be one of those underwhelming nothing tunes that'll rule the world in 6 months" a la jim jones or mims etc, and then vahid only made me surer.

saying that tho, in terms of those kinda tunes you only get a feel of that sort of intoxicating social energy in a v shitty fake 2nd hand way in england, if at all, and i'm not about to wear out the mp3 play button desperately failing to recreate that. ldn has enough dsouth hipster dickheads bumping gucci mane or whatever as it is.

the story behind 'werk that':

What do you feel is wrong with music?

QUIK: Right now I think it's just away from the growth of music. It sounds like it's snatch and grab. Coming up with a ]catchy hook and an 808 beat and people keep doing the same thing over and over and over again. And that's OK.

deej, Sunday, 20 May 2007 20:39 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, sometimes I listen to current hip house revivalism - "Touch Your Toes" or whatever - and wonder why its supporters don't just listen to uptempo hip hop and R&B (Mya's "Free" alone is a better urban/dance fusion than anything else any of us listened to this week). But kudos to Van Helden I guess for not using a corny rapper.

That said (incl. the bit about corniness) Deej you might like Studio R ft. Capitol A - "A & R (Llorca Remix)".

I'll track down your recommendation.

its great but imo probably not the best at translating what makes his stuff 'work' -- as w/ a lot of rap producers his collaborative stuff is part of the story too -- plus his albums (and the quikstrumentals, the fake reggae joints, plus the fact that his early career sounds so diff from his later stuff, and bcuz imo Trauma is one of his best records and that was post 'best-of') most ppl are better off getting a big picture view of his catalog --

Great thread, nice takeover deej, you’ve basically channeled most of my thoughts on Quik.

I got Rhythm-al-ism at a Sam Goody after reading the review in The Source in 98. iirc it got 4 of 5 mics, which mattered back then or something. I bought that album + Twista & the Speedknot Mobstaz 'Mobstability" at the same time and those two albums basically sound-tracked my junior/senior years of high school.

Rhythm-al-ism is a perfect album, a complete joy to listen to. As reverend stated; "listening to Rhythm-al-ism on headphones was a revelation and a half." This is what’s given it such a long shelf life imo. The songs are immediate (especially the front end), which hooked me from day one, but as I aged and began to appreciate the more intricate qualities of music production/sound is when this album really opened up to me. Sitting just ahead of Voodoo and Superunknown; it’s the most pure sounding album I’ve ever owned, I still use it test new headphones/speakers. Listen to We Still Party, there’s like 25+ layers in there, all blended seamlessly. The point xpost about Organized Noize is an interesting one, I’ve always thought their strength is in the way they layer their beats similarly to Quik. It lends well to repeat listens, there’s always something new to discover and appreciate.

Some highlights:
The bass-lines.
El Debarges fluttering vocals throughout Hand in Hand
Every single one of AMG’s verses.
The poignancy and triumph of Youz A Ganxta.
The random reggae smokers ballad.
The family feel to the whole affair epitomized by the tracks Medley For A “V” and Get 2getha Again.
The humor/story-telling on I Useta Know Her.
The stellar PSA style intro.
The sexy smoov of the Whatever U Do –Thinking ‘Bout U – El’s Interlude trifecta
The album cover
The Eddie Hazel-esque guitar work on the final track (Medley For a “V” Reprise)

As a teen I would usually pass over tracks like Whatever U Do, but now I love it. Specifically the second half when the vocals drop out for a while and we’re left with this smooth jazz cut slathered with aural textures (flute!), then El Debarge comes back in to add the perfect touch and bring the track home.

I’ve followed everything he’s done for some time and he ‘s really the only musician I stan for. I could probably go on about all his albums like this, but Rhythm-al-ism is truly special to me, my love for the music plus all the memories tied to it make it such.

Tldr. Probably shoulda chopped that up into 20 posts like deej.

Spottie_Ottie_Dope, Thursday, 14 April 2011 21:31 (seven years ago) Permalink

Nah, s'good post. I've been playing Rhythm-al-ism non-stop since people were enthusing about it in the rap poll thread. You've pretty much nailed it there, but yeah it's so enjoyable how there's always something new to pick up on with every listen. I'll definitely be voting for it now.

I had a happy childhood in the suburbs of L.A. My parents instilled in us an appreciation of history, art and, most important, Motown. Jarron and I weren't allowed to listen to rap until we were 12. After our birthday I dashed to Target and bought DJ Quik's album Quik Is the Name. I memorized every line.

It was a really good show, although I wish he'd given less time for Quixotic to fuck around and his son's miniset was totally unnecessary. He has a great stage presence and had a lot of fun and danced around a lot. It all felt pretty loose. He went through like a bottle and a half of champagne on stage. At one point he had Quixotic do a mix of a bunch of songs he'd ghost-produced. He sang part of "Let's Get Down" over "Smells Like Teen Spirit". The version he did of "Do I Love Her?" had this really weird slower, Dilla-ish sounding version of the beat? He was using two mics with two mic stands the whole show for some reason and in the middle of "Mo Pussy" he suddenly goes "1-2-3-4 Show's over!", slams both of them down and disappears offstage, but then he came back and did a bit of "Why U Bullshittin'".

Setlist:

????? (No one seemed to be rapping along to this, so it might be new)
Can U Werk Wit Dat?
Pitch in on a Party
Trouble
Diggin' U Out
Can I Eat It?
Jus Lyke Compton
Put It On Me
Down, Down, Down

His son came out and did a miniset at this point

Safe and Sound
Born and Raised in Compton
Let's Get Down
Sweet Black Pussy
Tonite
Do I Love Her?
Mo Pussy

Encore:
Why U Bullshittin'?

oh, even more obvious than I was thinking.

half the fun of Book of David was how it determinedly bounced back and forth from goodtimes party jams (which were WAY WAY BETTER than the ones on this album) to Quik at his most prissy and peevish. The new album is some halfassed autopilot shit.

agree with rev, only trax that really stick off this are "life jacket" and "that getter" - none of it's bad as such but it's when you go back to the book of david that you really realise the gulf in quality

man i couldn't agree any less with that assessment -- all the best stuff on the album is the autopilot stuff! when it gets bad is when he tries to do stuff that isn't in wheelhouse and/or lets his son rap

"So, his celebrity supersedes his talent right now? Yes. Come on, he's a Kardashian now, what the fuck. What he gonna do to me? Beat me up? It's Kanye. See, this is a challenge. This ain't a diss, it's just a challenge. Make your best music, because fans aren't stupid. They're just not."

yep

He sure comes off a lot more reasonable in that interview than on twitter

yeah he's all over the place on social media.

Spottie, Friday, 12 August 2016 06:18 (two years ago) Permalink

cool to hear him talk a bit about production, Rosecrantz EP sounds great, and come to think of it the sound quality is probably part of what drew me to Quik

is there perhaps some history of quik not getting proper acknowledgement of contributions? his phrasing re "In Da Club" percussion kinda seems like it:

Right. They don't even know why they like that song "In Da Club" by 50 Cent. They just know that they've heard it more than any other song, and it never gets old somehow. Well, it's because I helped Dr. Dre with the drums. I gave him those claps, and that kick. He acknowledges that now. I used to say for years, "You guys don't understand! I gave Dr. Dre those drum sounds!" "Yeah, yeah, okay David." And now when I go into the studio with Dre, he'll tell his people. And I'm like, Dre, that right there is worth more than any advance you could have ever paid me, any royalty or publishing. Acknowledgment like that from you? I'm good.

i've always thought that beat was very quik-esque!

have you ever even read The Drudge Report? Have you gone on Stormfron (k3vin k.), Saturday, 13 August 2016 15:56 (two years ago) Permalink

He's also why all eyez on me sounds so great. Don't think he got full credit for that alb

Didn't know he did stuff on AEOM besides "hearts of men"

brimstead, Saturday, 13 August 2016 22:27 (two years ago) Permalink

Though something like "all about u" does have a Quik-y groove

Can't Remember what interview I read it in, might even be itt, but he helped get it across the finish line

Think it was an interview with Sway?

Spottie, Saturday, 13 August 2016 22:33 (two years ago) Permalink

he mentions it in that billboard interview that you posted
