Puffy Dee = The OG Iggy Azalea?

When the Tuff City head honcho mentioned that this was the most slept-on release from the label I had to track down a copy. Having previously explained to Fat Lace that “she was white girl living uptown. I thought her rhymes were brilliant but she predated video unfortunately,” Mr. Fuch’s expanded on the topic when I interviewed him in 2013.

Aaron Fuchs: The most overlooked record in my catalogue is this record called ‘Joe Blow’ by Puffy Dee. She was really difficult to work with and she had a real mousy voice – until somebody tells me that that record isn’t good I’ll think it’s brilliant. It was a real beats and rhymes record – Pumpkin on drum machine. It came out around the same time as the Disco Four ‘School Days’ when he went through a very spare period.

I haven’t seen a photo of Puffy Dunster, but based on the comment about her not benefiting from having a video, it’s safe to assume she was a bit of a looker. ‘Joe Blow’ is certainly an amusing curio over a quality Pumpkin track, while the a-side ‘Young, Single and Free’ is a literally unlistenable attempt at the rap game Minnie Mouse to croon.

Dr. Butcher, who you may remember as the guy who did all the scratching on Kool G Rap‘s second album (as well as rapping at the end of ‘Jive Talk’), has also contributed a number of wonderfully brooding soundtracks for MF Grimm, Akinyele and G Rap to unleash speech over. Here are fifteen of my favorites.

Eric B & Rakim – My Melody [Unreleased Marley Marl Remix]

RAKIM

Once again proving my theory that 1986 was the best year for rap, the good folks at ego trip just uncovered this rap relic over at Mark McDonald’s Soundcloud page.

Will C. also posted this mix back in 2011, although I can’t tell if the ‘Art of Love’ sample that comes in at the 0:54 second mark is blended in or part of the track.



Stream: Diamond D – The Diam Piece Album

Empire Music have posted the new Diamond album on their YouTube channel for your enjoyment. Here’s a re-up of D-Squizzy’s track-by-track breakdown of the album here while you listen. Available now on CD and digital.

Diamond D: It’s more or less a production LP, about two and a half years it took. A lot of tracks I didn’t even use. I had about 27 tracks but I only used 18. Some of the artists I was in the studio with, and others – because of their touring schedule and my touring schedule – I just sent them music and they sent me the session back. If the track that I give them has a sample in it that’s giving it direction then they’ll follow that. If there is no sample or concept at the beginning I just let the MC’s paint their own pictures and try to figure out how can make it connect. I use a lot more live instrumentation now. I still chop and manipulate samples, but my sound just sounds bigger now. Just using better equipment so the sample frequencies are better.

This shit is incredible.

Cut Chemist sez:

“Take a peak into the exclusive material from hip hop pioneer DJ Afrika Bambaataa. ‘Mix By Jimmy’ features recordings Bambaataa had pressed to acetate for spinning live at shows in the late 70’s and early 80’s. This mix includes entirely unreleased material along with demo versions of hits like ‘Looking For The Perfect Beat,’ ‘Renegades of Funk’ and ‘Planet Rock.’ Listen and take a trip through the deepest part of the most important music collection of our time.”
