Aphex TwinCheetah EP ... CD
Warp, 2016. Used ... $6.99
Richard D James has lost none of his touch over the years – still as stark and ear-grabbing as he was when we heard the first Aphex Twin release – at a level that really lives up to all the faith we've had in his music over the years! This EP is bubbling over with blips, beats, and bassy bottoms that are more than enough to rumble our speakers right off the racks – a few variations on the title "Cheetah" tune, and a few more on "Cirklon" – all in a mode that's partly old school electro, partly that future sound and vision that we love from James.

✨✧ Miles DavisDoo Bop ... CD
Warner, 1992. Used ... $1.99
Miles must have turned over in his grave with this one – although it went on to influence a decade of jazz remix projects! Miles spacey trumpet is remixed from tapes recorded before his death, and production is handled by Easy Mo Bee, with kind of a "hip hop meets jazz" sort of flair. Titles include "Chocolate Chip", "High Speed Chase", "Fantasy", "Duke Booty", "Mystery", and "The Doo Bop Song". (Jazz, New Grooves) CD

DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... CD
Mo Wax, 1996. Used ... $4.99
It seems like when this came out, critics, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to show his true colors with subsequent efforts) or anything else. Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod, though some of us were hip to him all along, but Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveller in the coloristic approach he uses, that never forgets the funk. Includes "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World". (Hip Hop, New Grooves) CD

DJ ShadowLess You Know, The Better ... CD
Verve, 2011. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Does any hip hop DJ/producer/artist or otherwise instrumental sound stylist of any stripe face steeper critical expectations with each successive album than DJ Shadow, and if so, do any of them divert those expectations so profoundly as Shadow does? On The Less You Know, The Better, Josh Davis flirts with the beats, scratches and mood altering soundscapes of his early work at a few points, but he really tackles wide sylistic breadth here – including fuzzed out rock guitars over frenetic beats, spacey folk funk, darkness tinged new wave, timelessly brilliant rap. Includes "Back To Front (Circular Logic)", "Border Crossing", "Stay The Course" feat Talib Kweli & Posdnuos, "I've Been Trying", "Tedium", "Going Nowhere", "I Gotta Rokk", "Run For Your Life", "Scale It Back" feat Little Dragon, "Redeemed", "Circular Logic (Front To Back)" and more.

DJ KrushHolonic ... CD
Mo Wax (UK), 1998. Used ... $9.99
A great mix album where Krush revisits his classic tracks from the Mo Wax years in a non stop set that also features short vocal cameos from MCs, producers and graff writers like Stash, Futura 2000, Finsta Bundy, DJ Cam and Shawn J Period, and some nice turntable antics from Krush himself. Includes "Kemuri", "Bypath: Would YoU Take It?", "Dig This Vibe", "Duality", "Light (Can You See It?)" and lots more! (Hip Hop, New Grooves) CD
(Out of print.)
