Remember last week when I declared an unofficial one-week moratorium on rap music? Well, I didn’t count on on this dropping without any forewarning whatsoever. Good thing that moratorium was unofficial, huh? For those of you who don’t know what all the fuss is about, I’m really not even sure where to begin. Here’s what Spekt himself has to say:
This record is a collaborative between myself and experimental, proto-new wave musician Gary Wilson (Stones Throw). It’s rare that you get the opportunity to work with the actual artist rather than just sampling his records. Gary opened his vaults and provided ample soundscapes. Some of these instrumentals date back to 1973 and may have been heard before. Others may not. The ending result is a pure creative expression and meshes Hip Hop, Psychedelic, Jazz, Funk…. Soak up the vibrations and Enjoy!
I’m guessing more of you are familiar with Wilson than Spekt (it’s the opposite case for me, actually), so check out 2007’s Pretty Weaponry, 2009’s Guilty Party, 2010’s Bloodlust 2 and 2011’s MacheteVision , and just about anything else with his name attached to it.
And keep it grilchy, TMTers, always.
