✨✧ DJ ShadowPrivate Press ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... $1.99
Your favorite DJ savior returns, after an extended absence, with another mindnumbing full length exercise in future hip hop. 10 instrumental excursions into the world of Josh Davis (with a few extra interludes, of course), and as you might expect, the drum programming is top rate, intricate and detailed, with nice moody atmospherics and a few well chosen vocal bits laid over top for a great cinematic feel. Includes the epic "Blood On The Motorway", "Monosylabik", "Giving Up The Ghost" and "You Can't Go Home Again". CD

Jurassic 5Quality Control ... CD
Interscope, 2000. Used ... $2.99
The album that catapulted Jurassic 5 from the underground! Quality Control is one of the great hip hop albums, a record that's filled with great tracks, yet flows along as the ultimate headphones experience. The rhymes by Zaakir, Chali 2na, Akil, and Marc 7even are top notch in group dynamics and the solo shots, and the record has some of the best production Cut Chemist & Nu-Mark ever put down. Tracks include "How We Get Along", "Contact", "Quality Control", "World Of Entertainment (Woe Is Me)", "The Influence", "Monkey Bars", "Quality Control", "Twelve", "Contribution", "The Game", "Improvise", "Swing Set", "Jurass Finish First", and more.

LatyrxAlbum ... CD
Quannum/Solesides, 1997. Used ... $2.99
A great reissue of the waaaay overlooked Latyrx LP from '97. Lateef & Lyrics Born pretty much laid the groundwork for what was going to be some of the most adventurous underground hip hop to come out of Cali in the mid-to-late 90s – opening the door for Blackalicious, the J5 and others. DJ Shadow's great production on several of the best cuts is some of his punchiest work, and Blackalicious's Chief Xcel is at his peak on a few of the others. Lyrics Born's production work doesn't come near the above mentioned maestros (his rhymes, on the other hand, are indeed top notch, in a freaky Pharoahe Monche kinda way) making the whole a bit uneven, but don't let that stop you. This is essential underground hip hop, an LP we're thrilled to see get a high quality official reissue! Cuts include ""Latyrx", "The Quickening", "Balcony Beach", "Funky Granules", "Bad News", "Burnt Pride" and more. CD
