Lemonade Hip Hop by Casebloom on Mixcloud
I have recently been going through music at a fast pace. Maybe it’s twitter and blogs, or maybe it come’s with the territory in 2010. In any case there is a lot of good music out there, and I’ve been meaning to highlight a few overlooked treats with a quick mix. We’ll I finally got around to recording it this past week, and its here just in time for the first day of summer. The resulting concoction is thirty minutes of both new and ripe (if you will) soulful hip hop tracks, carefully selected for your pleasure, and mixed with just the right amount of sugary cuts. Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is….enjoy
Chung King Studios: Licence To Chill Volume 1 by Casebloom on Mixcloud
Chung King is a legendary recording studio in NYC.
In the 1980s they recorded a lot of DEF JAM stuff, and made a name for themselves as a “Hip Hop” recording studio.
Since then what was once “Chung King’s House Of Metal”, a small studio above a Chinese restaraunt, has built a reputation for churning out hits, and become a staple for recording artists of all genres.
A few weeks ago, a friend who works there and I were talking about the massive amount of classics recorded there, and we thought it would be cool to do a mix series highlighting their legacy. Where to begin? The Eighties.
The looped records, 808, and heavy bass on these records are closer to punk rock than any hip hop recorded these days. Turn it up loud and you can almost smell the egg fu young. This one is 80’s cassette tape grimey.
My father is really heavy into Jazz. My childhood is peppered with Latin jazz, and the fragrant smell of leather in our home. I remember listening to Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto bored stiff. I didn’t really understand how this music was shaping my taste until at the age of thirteen I discovered hip hop. It became a sort of lens for me to examine the rest of the musical world through, and the use of sampling became a fixation. I was always intrigued to hear how my favorite producers would take a dusty old snippet, flip it, and make it new again. My favorite sounds were always those familiar jazz rifts I heard at home. As an adult I began to seek out those records, rediscover the music I grew up with and expand my musical horizons. This mix is about a lot of things for me. I look at my musical taste and how it has changed throughout the years. I look at the partnering of my father and I to establish our bag company, Tucker & Bloom. To me it’s as much about the journey in life as where you are going, even if you can’t smell the leather all the time.-Case Bloom
KAP10 and myself (Cheap Perfume) made this mix about a year ago consisting entirely of tracks and samples glorifying alcohol in all its many forms. There’s something here for everyone, no matter your drink or genre of choice… So, grab a drink, pop it in your deck, and rage it! Plenty of debauchery, dope music, scratching, sh^tty culture, and general shenanigans… Track listing in the Lyrics section of the MP3 tag info. Feel free to share and repost link anywhere you see fit… Enjoy.
