ArtifactsAll Points Bulletin (main, inst, accapella, rmx, rmx inst, bonus beat) (10 inch single) ... 12-inch
Redefinition, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $15.99
Tame One and El Da Sensei team up once again as Aritfacts for the classic-level solid "All Points Bulletin" reunion single – with production by Def Dee on the main version, plus a Klaus Layer-produced remix! It's great to hear these veteran MCs sound fresh and vinyl so many years after their pioneering early work – and the producers on both sides on their games. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Streetwise, 1984. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $6.99
One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats! This one ties it all together – the sound of the streets, the experiments of the import scene, and the changing energy in the clubs – all with a perfect blend of moods, and that wicked "D-d-d-d-d-d-ominatrix" chant! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Herman Kelly & LifeDance To The Drummer's Beat/Easy Going ... 12-inch
Alston/TK, 1978. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Classic early breakdance/breakbeat material! "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" was real stormer in the South Bronx back in the day, and a great bit of uptempo funk with congas – the break and chorus are both great, and the single's like finding a page in the history of hip hop book! The LP's tough to come by, and although we do see the track on 45, we've hardly ever seen this 12" single! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Reissue of the amazing, and previously impossible to find, track produced by Jean Michel Basquiat. Originally released in 1983, the deep, laid-back production and vocals were years ahead of what anyone else was doing at that time. This reissue features the original 10+ minute version and instrumental and the hard to get cover art, white on black drawings on the front and back, done by Basquiat. (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, 11/29/14.

Clipse FINALLY got something on record in '05 – a good 3 years after they broke huge with the Lord Willin' LP! We're guessin' that label woes are the culprit for the gap, but whatever the case may be, they've brought their superstar producer friends on board for this single on the strictly underground Re-Up label! Pharrell guests on the percolating "Studyin' Y'all", with barebones Neptunes production. Timbaland brings his chunky beat production finesse to "Re Up Anthem". The "Queen B*tch" freestyle closes it out. 12-inch, Vinyl record

A second fresh 12-inch of archival J Dilla from Pay Jay Productions and the Dilla Estate – with a couple of top notch cuts recorded in 2002 and slated for his vocals-centric record The Diary! This is the second knockout 12-inch featuring Diary material – this one featuring Dilla rhymes and Knottz production on "Diamonds – The Shining Pt 1" – making sweet use of a Seals & Crofts sample as a foil. "Ice – The Shining Pt 2" features production by Madlib – and "The D" is a Madlib beat that Dilla intended to add rhymes to before he passed away – and it's here in instrumental form. 12-inch, Vinyl record

J RoccJ Rocc Enjoyed The Experience ... 12-inch
Now Again, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A mad bit of drum heavy, funky excellence from Beat Junkies founder J Rocc – a killer mix crafted from the vintage private press recordings anthologized in the Enjoy The Experience compilation and book from Sinecure Books! Enjoy The Experience is an incredibly diverse set, though funky jazz, jazzy funk and funk rock were a big part of the package. J Rocc hones in on that, but truly puts his distinctive turnablist hip hop stamp – with driving funky beats that don't let up. This is a quinessential example of a great DJ crafting brilliantly unique material from found sounds! 3 long tracks on 2 sides: "ETE Part 4 (Instrumental)", "ETE Part 1" and "ETE: The Beat Edition". 12-inch, Vinyl record

There's a funky beat to this one that's a bit Go-Go oriented – much more big beat and pop sounding than some of the group's other work from the time, almost in a Jimmy Jam kind of mode. That's kind of corrected on the house mix, though. 12-inch, Vinyl record

The third collaborative EP from adventurous production legend Madlib and MC Freddie Gibbs! As cool is Madlib's more envelope-pushing, unpredictable and cosmos expanding productions are, it's always fantastic to hear him produce for no nonsense rhymers. "Deeper" has a chilling bit of soul strings soaring over a spare, moody beat that's a perfect foil for Freddie's vocals. "Harold's" is another gritty soul steeped track with tough rhymes. Includes vocal and instrumental versions of "Deeper" and "Harold's" – plus the bonus beats "Ups & Downs" and "The Long Walk Home". 12-inch, Vinyl record

"Vacant Rhymes" thankfully doesn't live up to the title – it's actually a tight single, both lyrically and on the beat, with guest vocals by Dave from De La Soul and Modill MC Racecar! "Nightly" is a more smoothed out number with some nice keys in the mix. Nice s**t from the Chicago underground! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Oneness Of JujuEvery Way But Loose/(Family Tree) Make A Change ... 12-inch
Sutra, 1981. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Although Oneness Of Juju are best known around here for their avant funky spiritual jazz albums from the mid 70's, they're really best known in clubland for the a-side of this single, "Every Way But Loose". The track still retains some of their afro jazz elements, but it's got a heavy dancefloor beat over a nice rolling bassline, like some of Cymande's snapping tracks that crossed over into the club scene! The b-side's a more mellow affair, another more commercial number than their earlier afro jazz funk material, but keeping enough of that approach to remind you who's behind the track. 12-inch, Vinyl record

In the red corner is MC Psycho of Insane Poetry and DJ Rip One of Innernational. Each MC/DJ pair is given the same topic and sample (from "I Put a Spell On You" that Premier used for Biggie's "Kick in the Door.") and whoever comes out with the dopest track wins. 12-inch, Vinyl record

The follow up to the hit "Bad Meets Evil". Production by DJ Ev and Reef, this one gives you the best of both worlds – the beat is dancefloor friendly enough, but the rhymes still have a dope underground edge. "I'm the King" uses a sample from Run-DMC's "King of Rock" as the hook. Plus, the picture cover features another in the series of the Game labels trademark fly cuties. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Another track about the assasination of the mayor of NYC. This one is a whole lot more specific – and to our ears, a lot funnier – than the earlier rhyme attacks on Rudy Guliani. From the intro using the 'If you see a devil smash him' sample to the line "like the Jews celebratin when Pharoah got killed..." Godfather Don produces "You Love To Hear The Stories" where Screwball deliver some nice rhymes looking back on the history of Queens MC's from Shan & Marley Marl up through Mobb Deep, etc. (One of the members of Screwball is MC Poet, who recorded "Beat You Down" as part of the whole BDP/Queensbridge battles back then...) 12-inch, Vinyl record

45 Below/Anticon, 1998. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Banquet of Sarcasm has that noisy distorted underground sound, but with a little more energy and a little less abstract/off-beat vocals. Mr. Complex and D-Story of the Arsonists are featured on Three Men In A Bar. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ultramagnetic MCsTo Give You Love (voc, ultra inst, DNA bonus beats)/Make You Shake (voc, ultra inst, DNA bonus beats) ... 12-inch
Diamond Intl, 1986. Near Mint- (reissue)... $4.99
Reissue of the very first Ultramagnetics single, before their classic material for Next Plateau. "Make You Shake" is not as great as their later tracks, but it does give some glimpse of what was to come. "To Give You Love" is more for Ultra completists, with the mid 80s big beat production style like some of the artists on Profile were using at that time. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Black Socs, 1991. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $3.99
Not the Wee Gee track, but a stepper's cut that was a local sensation here in Chicago, with a Soul II Soul/Inner City type beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

WhatnautsHelp Is On The Way (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Harlem International, 1981. Very Good ... $5.99
An obscure later tune by The Whatnauts – issued years after their classics for All-Platinum in the early 70s – but proof that the group is always great, no matter what the setting! This tune's got a mean mean boogie groove – and was sampled to great fame by De La Soul in "Ring Ring Ring", but stands beautifully on is own. There's a rollerskating bounce to the track that's completely sublime – and the tune steps on and on and on without missing a beat! Not on any LP, either! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wildchild feat Percee P & MedaphoarKnicknack 2002 (voc, inst)/Kiana (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2002. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
If it looks like a Lootpack, smells like a Lootpack and sounds like a Lootpack, why isn't it a Lootpack? They bust up and then Wildchild drops a single with Madlib producing and Romes on the cut, with his on-top-of-the-beat hectic rhyme style, not quite as abstract as he's been in the past, joined on the A-side by Percee P and Medaphoar. Oh No produces the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Franchise/Buds, 1999. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Dope female posse record with Bahamadia, Heather B, Rah Digga, Nicki D, Precious P, and Paula Perry over and aggresive underground beat. Another one of those overlooked singles from Franchise/Buds that are still nice all the way through. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jazz Liberatorz w/ J Live & AsheruVacation (main, inst)/Crazy MF/I Am Hip Hop (main, inst)/Wink End ... 12-inch
Kif (France), 2009. New Copy (pic cover)... Around November 1, 2014 (delayed)
Fresh jazz funk beats from the Jazz Liberators – and top notch rhymes from the guests! "Vacation" with J-Live has the breezy groove you might expect from the title, but J Live's rhymes are all business. "Crazy MF" is actually pretty laidback, while "I Am Hip Hop" with Asheru is laidback, funky hip jam – Asheru rhymes with a hushed tone, but forthright lyricism, with easy going keys, some funky flute in the mix, a really kind of an unpredictable beat mirrored nicely by the bass. "Wink End" is a jazzy funk instrumental with some of the sweet, Jazz Lib piano! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kif (France), 2008. New Copy (pic cover)... Early November, 2014 (delayed)
Jazzy hip hop funk beats from the Jazz Liberatorz! "Genius At Work" features Fat Lip & T-Love – with a funky beat, and some really nice bits of keys standing out from the beats and the bass. "When The Clock Ticks" features J Sands. The 12-inch also includes the short, jazzy funk instros "Cut The Jazz" and "Really I Need A Profit", plus the instrumental versions of "Genius At Work" and "When The Clock Ticks". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jazz Liberatorz w/Stacy Epps, TableekU Do (main, inst)/Music In My Mind (part 2)/Indonesia (main, inst)/Sandaga ... 12-inch
Kif (France), 2008. New Copy (pic cover)... Around November 1, 2014 (delayed)
A mix of jazzy hip hop funk beats & keys, laidback hip hop, and cosmic soul! "U Do" is some soul jazz keys floating over the bass and beat, and some easygoing rhymes from Stacy Epps. "Indonesia" features Tableek from Maspyke – and as the kind of lightly tripped out funky production that feels fresh from Detroit to Cali, and it's pretty much a straight up ode to fresh hip hop. "Sandaga" is a shorter instrumental with a kicked up tempo and looped keys. "Music In My Mind (Part 2)" blends boom bop and 70s soul cinema style with jazzy texture – a wide ranging groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Edwin BirdsongLollipop (long, short) ... 12-inch
Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little cut from Edwin Birdsong – an uptempo groover cut for Philly International in the years after he parted company with Roy Ayers – but oddly, a track that's very much in the smooth clubby groove that Roy was using at the same time. The track's got a strong bouncy beat – and a warm jazzy finish that makes it very nice! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Constant Deviants8th Wonder (radio, street, inst)/Hustler's Prayer (radio, street, inst) ... 12-inch
Brooklyn Pipeline, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cut here is "8th Wonder". The verses are a free-association listing along the lines of Smooth The Hustler/Trigga the Gamblers "Broken Language" or Atmosphere's "Scapegoats". In this case, it's a list of your worst nightmares "I'm the first day of a 10 year bid, I'm the voice in your head saying 'Beam up', I'm...". All over a slow bass-heavy beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New CVO (Glenn Underground)Archives 1 – Nostalgic Moog Morning/Time & Space ... 12-inch
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant stuff from Glenn Underground's vaults – the spacey 70s jazz funk-inspired "Nostalgic Moog Morning" and "Time And Space! Both tunes are strongly reminscient of some of favorite, electric keys, synths and flute flavored jazz funk, with a tighter, more club-ready beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

10/30 Uproar, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Since the day this single came out, it's been a favorite for MC's to freestyle over – with just a simple drum line combined with a killer, killer koto sample, a big beat precursor to the Asian string fetish Timbaland and others used a full seven years later! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Med (Medaphoar) feat J DillaPush (street, radio, inst)/Can't Hold On (street, radio, inst) ... 12-inch
Stones Throw, 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A couple of prime cuts from Med's Push Comes Two Shove LP – the Jay Dilla-produced lead off cut "Push" and the Madlib-produced "Can't Hold On" on the flip! "Push" is another in the ever-expanding armada of stunning Dilla productions – kicking off with chunky, thumping beats that feel a little bit like Timbaland – but Dilla filters in a wide array sounds and effects! There's a lot going on, but it's never too busy, just deep! Med's rhymes are straight forward, solid hip hop. Dilla contributes a rhyme, too! "Can't Hold On" is nice, too – an atypical Madlib production propelled by synthesizer and a steady, crisp beat! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Labels have some marker.)
