CD (Item 608937) Stones Throw, 2012 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 4

An all star hip hop project on Stones Throw – music by the core Quakers trio of Invada Records partners Katalyst & 7Stu7, plus a cat billed as Fuzzface (actually Geoff Barrow of Portishead) – featuring a sick lineup of guests including Guilty Simpson, Jonwayne, Aloe Blacc, Buff1, Diverse, Botty Brown, Phat Kat, Frank Nitty, MED, Prince Po, Finale and more! The Quakers set out with the simple goal of of making the kind of hip hop record they'd want to listen to, trends be damned . . .and it's damn good! Heavy beats and sinister bass lines are a common thread, but this a celebration of depth and diversity in the leftfield hip hop idiom – 41 fairly brief tracks that flow impeccably well and with standout rhymes from an impossibly strong roster of guests. Includes "Big Cat" with Synato Watts, "The Lo", "Sidewinder" with Buff1, "Dark City Lights" with Frank Nitty, "War Drums" feat Phat Kat & Guilty Simpson, "Rock My Soul" feat Prince Po, "Rock My Soul" feat Prince Po, "Sign Language" feat Aloe Blacc, "Oh Goodness" feat Finale and much more. (CD includes a bonus disc featuring the instrumentals.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Def Jam, 1986. New Copy
The game-changing Def Jam classic from the mid 80s – and still possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! The Beasties later distanced themselves from much of the attitude of this album, and you can't fault the Boys for maturing. ... CD

Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! ... CD
Now Again, 2013. New Copy
Heavy funk galore – all hand-picked by Oh No, and mixed together in a way that really opens up the grooves! The cuts are all from the wonderful reissues on the Now Again label – work that includes rare funk and soul, African psych, and even some oddball middle eastern grooves – ... CD
