Gamingforce Music Exposure: REDUX

The concept is simple: You got an album that's so fuck-spangled awesome that you want everyone to listen to? Good. We want to listen to it. Post it here and we'll check it out. Then we'll get back to you and tell you that it sucks compared to Dark Side of the Moon. Posting format is written below in the quote box.

Regarding the old thread: After a bit of discussion, we figured it was best to close the old thread which was littered with dead links and broken images. None of you are new to this but, on the off-chance that we have new blood around, here's a quick rundown of the posting format:

As was recommended in the last thread, it's recommended that you use any file sharing site of your choosing but, really, anything that's available will do: Soundcloud or Bandcamp pages and servies of the like or, given that most of us probably use that to some extent in the first place, a Spotify link will work as well. As always, if you like an album, please support the artist and buy their music if you can.

Share, enjoy, be good to each other and—most of all—have fun!

This album was my first introduction to either of these ridiculously talented artists. Exile (who would go on to have a dope resumé with several talented emcees after this album and also produced Fashawn's "Boy Meets World", an album which I've waxed lyrical about in the past and posted here as well) does an amazing job creating the perfect backdrops for Blu’s lyrics, as if he created each track to specifically match the given song topic. This is seen over and over again in the way the samples create an almost ethereal supporting dialogue with Blu who lyrically dropped an innumerable heartfelt verses and rhymes discussing all kinds of topics representative of life “below the heavens”. This was my favorite album of 2007.

Strange Vine are a two-piece jam band from Fresno, CA and are regular visitors to dives and venues that I frequent. The most impressive about this band is the amount of sound that they're able to produce with only two members and they channel a very grungy sound that would be the marriage of Neil Young's vocals with Clapton's guitar playing. They recently lost their friend and music mentor Corby Yates to suicide and haven't really been on the road but that's about to change really soon. If you happen to see them on a ticket for a local dive where you are, you should do yourself a favor and go see them, for they are a two-man sound army that topples houses everywhere they go.

Wax Tailor established his reputation in just a few years as one of the leading voices of the post hip-hop and downtempo scenes. Returning with the concept album, Dusty Rainbow From The Dark, the French producer gives us a musical tale inspired in large part by the enchanted world of childhood. His fourth long player is also a charming allegory on the escapist power of music. Narrated by the legendary voice of Don McCorkindale (Radio BBC's The Avengers), featuring the likes of Aloe Blacc, Shana Halligan (Bitter:Sweet), Jennifer Charles (Dan The Automator's Lovage), as well as past collaborators Charlotte Savary, Sara Genn, Mattic, A.S.M, this multicolored fable with an international cast takes us on a wandering path through psychedelic downtempo and baroque hip-hop, to create an album that is at once modern and timeless.

At the time of its release, this long-awaited collaboration between producer/emcees Madlib and MF Doom, "Madvillainy" was the hip hop equivalent of a DC/Marvel dream team. It was a tense mainstream-meets-indie, avant-meets-antique monster mash that, as the opening sample suggests, plays on a "seminal connection that audiences can relate their experience in life with the villains and their dastardly doings." This album was so inexhaustibly brilliant, with layer-upon-layer of carefully considered yet immediate hip-hop, forward-thinking but always close to its roots. Madlib and Doom are individually at their most refined here, and together, they created one of the most exciting blockbuster alliances in the underground to date. This is still one of my top 10 hip hop albums of all time. Fuck what you heard.

This 4 piece group of turntablists from Nantes, France come together under the moniker, C2C, to create incredible music using only their turntables. They have been around for quite some time and were the Technics DMC World DJ Champions 4 years in a row! (2003-2006) While it seems they are already huge in France (150K+ fans on FB), it may not be the case in North America. One listen through Tetra, their very first studio album despite having been around as long as they have, and you will be begging for more. While there are some very notable features (Pigeon John, Olivier DaySoul, Blitz The Ambassador) on this album, the instrumental tracks easily hold their own — in fact some of the instrumental only tracks on this album are the big standouts.

WHEN THAT TRAIN ROLL UP, BABY, I START WALKIN' OUT...

Quakers - Quakers
Year: 2012
Label: Stones Throw
Genre: Hip Hop




. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Quakers is a hip-hop collective boasting well over 30 members which are all in some way, shape and form produced around a core of three heads: Fuzzface (Geoff Barrow, who most of you might know from his superb work with Portishead), 7-Stu-7 and Katalyst. Heavyweights like Guilty Simpson, Johnwayne and King Magnetic (all Stones Throw label artists as well, so a major shout out goes to Peanut Butter Wolf for putting this highly-enigmatic house of music together) all make appearances in this highly-eclectic album chock full of nonbitchassness. Here's a Spotify link to the 3 tracks they have on there, but I urge you to cop it. For real.



Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels
Year: 2013
Label: Fool's Gold
Genre: Hip Hop




But, wait... THERE'S MORE!!!



Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2
Year: 2014
Label: Mass Appeal
Genre: Hip Hop




. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Run The Jewels is a hip hop duo formed by El-P (founder and owner of Definitive Jux records, the first label of my favorite rapper, Aesop Rock) and Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike. These two furious fuckers took the standard model of southern rap beats and added a slight New York mix (provided graciously by El-P's production; he processed both albums' beats single-handedly) and inexplicably came up with a winning formula that mixes politics, vulgarity, nihilistic gun banter and raw lyrics into a single, tightly-packed audio bomb.

What's even more impressive is that they did it for free.

TWICE.

Both albums are free for download legally. Cop them both. (You'll need to sign up with an email address at both links above for your free download, but it's free music. Get to it!)

But, hey, we can be too serious about this music project, right? A recent Kickstarter project recently raised enough funds to get these two knuckleheads to remix their newest album using only cat sounds! Here's El-P auditioning cats for this.

Too lazy (or paranoid) to download the albums? Check them both out on Spotify here and here.



Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music
Year: 2012
Label: Williams Street
Genre: Hip Hop




. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Speaking of Run The Jewels, start listening to their first collaboration! Killer Mike's major debut album was also produced by El-P and is about as explosive as a debut as you can expect from a rapper coming out of the wasteland that I consider Southern hip hop to be. Most of Southern hip hop (with a handful of exceptions, most notably OUTKAST) has been a simmering stew of gang violence, cocaine and purple drank for many years now. But if you wanna know what to be in for with Killer Mike's music, you really need to look no further than his in-depth-yet-simplistic breakdown of Reaganomics in his track, "Reagan":

AND FINALLY



Gentle Jamie - Survivor Series
Year: 2013
Label: None
Genre: Hip Hop




. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Gentle Jamie is a friend of mine and former member of a hip hop group I mentioned in this club well over 5 years ago and still favorites of mine: The Argyle Pimps. The Pimps (sadly) broke up a couple of years ago and he alone has been carrying the torch of the Pimps' brand of Rat Pack-esque hip hop since. He's a nerd at heart like most of us here and that shines through in his music with a comedic bravura that can't be explained in simple sentences. His lyrics range in topics from accidentally being an accessory to bank robbery via a buxom bipolar blonde to wallowing in depravity in an apartment while eating peanut butter sandwiches. To listen to this album, you really just kind of have to let his weird sense of humor and mid-century throwback beats transport you to where he's currently at and hope you don't fall off the coaster when it's on its its downslide.

Spotify link to the album here.

(I missed you guys~ <3 )

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.
