Platinum Pied Pipers —
Triple P ... CD Ubiquity, 2005. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The long-awaited debut from Platinum Pied Pipers – an incredible set that melds underground soul, deep hip hop, and innovative club groove into a cohesive sound all its own! The PPP is essentially the duo of Waajeed (a founding member of Slum Village and frequent Jay Dee collaborator) and guitar-and-keys wizard Saadiq – who bring in guest vocalists and producers that give the record the appealing sprawl of a tight collective. Like fellow traveler Amp Fiddler, the crew seamlessly mixes a thumping tapestry of styles, and weave it all together in a multi-layered finished pattern that even the most ambitious peers can't touch. A true instant classic that'll be as much of a reference point in the years to come as Jay Dee's earlier efforts – if not more so! Dilla and SA-RA guest on the innovative hip hop styled tracks, as does MCs Invincible and Lacks, but the progressive soul gets intensive focus – with vocals by Tiombe Lockhart and Georgia. Other guests include Spacek, Zeno and Roijer. Essential! 16 tracks on the CD: "Shotgun Intro" and "Act Like You Know" featuring Jay Dee, "Your Day Is Done" feat Georgia, "Deep Inside" featuring S-Ra Creative Partners, "Fever" feat Zeno, "Stay With Me" and "Now Or Never" feat Tiombe Lockhart, "Detroit Winter" feat Invincible, "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" feat Roijer and more!
