Tenacious D - Rize of the Fenix (Soundcloud Stream)

I'd say 'Roadie' is the best track on here. Their show back in the day on HBO was awesome.

Sword & Sworecery LP (Bandcamp Stream)

(deep house) '04

Detroit house with that jazzy feel somewhat reminiscent of Moodyman. Solid instrumentals. Nevermind that cover. Listen

Art of .....

This is just one of those times where the original sample holds up and outshines the interpretations on nearly every level. If you have David T Walker's 'Plum Happy' let me know as its been effectively scrubbed from my avenues of the internet.

Drum machines, synthesizers, soul, and DIY musicians collide in this brilliant compilation that starts in the mid '70's. If Shuggie Otis and Raymond Scott had a wiry fetus-spawn it would sound something like this.

Art of Sampling Vol. 4

Found this Bob James & Earl Klugh record 'One on One' at the Goodwill store today. Its a general snoozeworthy affair though I did find this sample used in a Panacea track.

3.Pharcyde: Somethin That Means Somethin

17.Pharcyde: BullSh*t (Inst)
18.Pharcyde: Y Remix (Inst)
19.N'Dea Davenport: Bullsh*ttin Remix (Inst)

Smooth, soulful beats by J Dilla. I usually stick to the instrumentals but the vocalists hold their own. The production skills on 'She Said Remix' and 'Bullshittin Remix' show what all the post-mortem praise and tributes are all about and why they are justified.
