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.

Considering both the influence that James Brown has had on Pete Rock’s career, and Mr. Rock’s tale of meeting the great man as a child, it’s only right that he pays musical tribute with this collection of rap tracks that sampled the Godfather of Soul:

“I met James Brown when I was seven years old. My mom took me to a concert in Mt. Vernon, New York. He came and performed and me and my younger brother met him. My younger brother was six and I was seven and we met James Brown. It was crazy! When we met him I think he passed something on to me. I wasn’t the same after I met him.”

Check the debut LP from new Diamond D discovery Big Rec from Oklahoma, produced entirely by the “Best Producer On The Mic” himself. Stand-out for me was the “NO 2 NC” which flips the same loop that Godfather Don used on “Seeds of Hate.” Cop it over at iTunes.



Stream: Lord Finesse – The SP-1200 Project Samplers

artworks-000082709202-apx6m4-t500x500

For fans of 90’s era Lord Finesse beats (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) the Slice of Spice crew have compiled a vinyl package to “keep the crowd listening.”

Finesse dug deep into his floppy disk and DAT tape archives to help bring us a monster 25 tracks of unreleased and previously unavailable SP1200 heat. After Finesse hooked-up the E-mu Systems SP1200 and Akai S950 to transfer and sequence these tracks, we had Eddie Sancho mix then, and Tony Dawsey master them.

You can pre-order here.

Below are the samplers from the various volumes, plus three full-length tracks as downloads:
