Phonetics and Instrumentation

GD3851336-6349

I received some gorgeous music last week with the name of Obba Supa attatched to it. Technical Development runs the mic.  His 100% London accent brings honesty, knowledge and Lewis Parker to mind. The production of  Hey!Zeus holds plenty heritage within and forward thinking with jazz-brewed off-key beats and keys that hit your soft spot with no apologies. Rewind champion of the week.

As previously mentioned this week is the global launch of the latest output from Indigenous Resistance, and what a cast included.  See below for the list of all participants, some no longer with us, but on record yes.  I’ll be dropping Routes to Rootz at the Boreal Festival this coming Saturday after Tropico 28 and Karlovy Vary take the stage.

A good friend of mine introduced me to Intik, a rap group from Algeria.  While checking the cd booklet, I noticed the name of Imhotep in the production credits for one track.  He is/was, not sure, part of French rap legends I AM.  He released a solo album which was miles away from I AM.  The album, Blueprint, published in ’98 is one of my favourites when it comes to Maghreb and contemporary beats sharing the bath water.  I played this album to whoever I could, and seriously only one person was not impressed.   You be the judge…..
