MantronixMusic Madness (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sleeping Bag/Octave (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $14.99
The follow up to the classic first LP! Listening to Kurtis Mantronik productions all of these years later is a definite educational experience, given the huge influence the crisp synth sounds had on the future of hip hop – not only as a matter of necessity, given the cost of sample clearance, but also as an aesthetic choice. Archeological chin-scratching aside, it's a straight up good time, with a shiny electronic bounce – one that holds up well! Tracks include "Music Madness", "Who Is It?", "Ladies (UK rmx)", "Scream", "Listen To The Bass Part" – plus 5 bonus tracks including "Scream" original 12 inch club and dub versions, "Who It Is?" original 12 inch freestyle USA club and UK club mixes, and "Who's Dub Is It? (original 12 inch dub)". CD

Apollo BrownReset (red & black vinyl 10th anniversary edition) ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2010. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A stunning production effort from Apollo Brown – the sort of record that set the standard for so many hip hop records to follow, and which still sounds completely fresh after all these years! The production is nicely understated, but filled with all these little musical seeds that flower gently throughout the set – topped with vocal contributions from Med, Oddisee, Stik Figa, Rapper Big Pooh, Black Milk, Ken Starr, Diamond District, and others. Titles include "Propa", "Brainwash", "Streets Won't Let Me Chill", "Hungry", "Lower The Boom", "Real Detroit", "Seasons", and "Brag Language". LP, Vinyl record album

Das EfxHold It Down (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 38.99
Das EFX's third album finds them holding down a more jam-packed approach than ever before – longer by half than their previous LPs and with a strong sense of purpose! Das EFX appeared with such a unique rhyme style, by this point they really needed to balance the tasks of being recognizable as as the hard-hitting duo with the distinctive approach to rhymes, without relying on it as a gimmick, and here they largely succeed – with production from Premier, Showbiz, Easy Mo Bee, Klark Kent, DJ Scratch and more. Tracks include "No Diggedy", "Represent The Real" with KRS, "Microphone Master", "Hold It Down", "Bad News" with PMD, "Real Hip Hop", "40 & A Blunt", "Ready To Rock Rough Rhymes", and lots more! LP, Vinyl record album

Das EfxStraight Up Sewaside (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 28.99
The somewhat slept on second album by Das Efx – and in hindsight, it's just as solid as Dead Serious – maybe even more consistently strong than the breakout debut! Dray and Skoob keep up the loco syllabic tempo and tongue tripping rhymes on this one – over the head nodding Solid Scheme beats that sound great to this day – but wisely put the focus on the rhyme craft rather than going overboard with the manic style. You've heard us an just about anyone else with an opinion about hip hop history go on and on about the golden years of the early 90s, and this rock solid effort deserves as much acclaim as many of the better remembered records of the day. With the tracks "Baknaffek", "Wontu", "Check It Out", "Undaground Rappa", "Gimme Dat Micraphone", "It'z Lik Dat", "Host Wit Da Most", "Rappaz", and "Freakit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Abstract OrchestraDilla ... LP
ATA (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
There's nothing abstract here – as the set's a fantastically-focused tribute to the late Jay Dee – put together in a style that's mostly jazz, but which also has some great vocal touches too! The music's roots are in hip hop, but the presentation here is awash in strong work on saxes, trumpet, and trombone – used over rhythms that are played live, and which have this warm glow that's like 70s jazz funk, filtered through the hop hop generation! Emphasis is on horn solos, but the set also features twin female singers – who provide some chorus vocals, and a warm link between the instrumental modes in a really great way. So maybe consider this both a soul and a jazz remake of the world of Dilla – and a great one too. Titles include "Welcome To Detroit/The Diary", "Dilla Mix 1", "Official/Fall In Love", "Love", "Angel"," King", "Two Can Win", "Raw Sh*t", "Workinonit", and "Stop".

Abstract OrchestraMadvillain Vol 2 ... CD
ATA (UK), 2019. Used ... $14.99
A really great take on the music of Madvillain – that famous collaboration between Madlib & MF Doom – served up here in a mostly instrumental mode that's heavy on funk and jazz! You'll definitely recognize the tunes in the set, but the presentation is very different – almost as if someone's gone back to the music, stripped it down to core samples, then worked those back up again with a new sort of energy! The group's directed by Rob Mitchell – clearly the genius behind the whole project – and solos are by James Russell on tenor and flute, Simon Bobby Beddoe on trumpet, Jim Corry on alto, and George Cooper on piano and keyboards. Titles include "Meat Grinder", "Eye", "Figaro", "Can't Reform Em", "Madmix 3", "Rainbows", "Fire In The Hole", "Rhinestone Cowboy", "Operation Lifesaver", and "Borrowed Time". (Deep Funk, Hip Hop) CD

Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic ForcePlanet Rock (voc, inst)/Bonus Beats I ... 12-inch
Tommy Boy, 1982. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The classic from Afrika Bamaaataa & The Soul Sonic Force – one of the most revolutionary pieces of formative hip hop history! "Planet Rock" is straight up legendary for a number of reasons. It's one of those early hip hop hits to bring the genre to greater popularity, the deft use of Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra inspiration with a NYC party rocking vibe is pure genius, and the overall effect on hip hop, house, electro and pop music to come is seriously huge. Vital! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Blu & ExileMiles – From an Interlude Called Life ... CD
Dirty Science, 2020. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Maybe the most ambitious set so far from the duo of Blu & Exile – an expansive double-length set, delivered after a hiatus of new material for a number of years – and a record that really shows just how much the pair have grown during that time! Hip hop is still at the core of the set – thanks to rhymes from Blu and always-great production from Exile – but there's all these other musical elements in the mix, too – never forced or overdone, but used in a way that really helps expand the Cali soul quality that's always been at the core of their music. Guests on the record include Gappy Ranks, Ishe, Jacinto Rhines, Jimetta Rose, Iman Omari, Aloe Blacc, Miguel, Fashawn, and Choosey – and titles include "Miles Davis", "Bright As Stars", "Music Is My Everything", "Miles Away", "Roots Of Blue", "To The Fall But Not Forgotten", "Requiem Of Blue", "African Dream", "Spread Sunshine", and "When The Gods Meet".

BreakthroughBreakthrough (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 2005. Used ... $13.99
A great mix of styles from this up-and-coming Japanese crew – a group who work equally well in hip hop and cosmic soul territory, and who are getting help here from a huge array of guest stars! Breakthrough work hard to craft some beautifully jazzy and laidback beats on the set – but they never take center stage for their efforts, and instead leave that aspect of the set to a range of vocalists and performers that includes Count Bass D, Bembe Segue, Bahamadia, Masspyke, Gagle, Spacecatz, Pushim, Jneiro Jarel, Ovasoul 7, Mark De Clive-Lowe, Amp Fiddler, and Outsect! Titles include "No Game", "Finger Funk", "Womanizer", "Highway 2 U", "XL", "Green Like The Sun", "A Song", "Chalk It Up", "8 Bit Bug", "Rude One Space Rhymes", "This Way Before", and "We Got Music".

Cash Money & MarvelousWhere's The Party At? (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sleeping Bag/Demon (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Maybe the crowning achievement of DJ Cash Money – a sharp DJ from the early Philly scene – and a talent who was every bit as great at the time on as Jazzy Jeff on the wheels of steel! Cash is paired here with Marvelous, an MC whose sense of wit really matches the sharpness of the production on the record – and the album's a classic from a time when the indie underground was starting to burst out again with strong full length albums like this! There's plenty of deft, playful rhymes on the set – and titles include "Find An Ugly Woman", "Play It Kool", "Is It Real", "Time Is Up", "A Real Mutha For Ya", "Marvelous' Drawers", "Ugly People Be Quiet (rmx)", "Ugly People Be Quiet", "The Mighty Hard Rocker", and "The Music Maker".

Childish GambinoAwaken My Love (with download) ... LP
Glassnote, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Childish Gambino once again transcends anything you might be expecting from an actor/musician – this is not some vain star trip at all, but a worthy, boundary-busting effort – and a pretty sizable step away from idiosyncratic, yet accessible hip hop into spacey pop funk! Strong stuff, following his own path in respectable, highly rewarding fashion. Includes "Me And Your Mama", "Have Some Love", "Boogieman", "Zombies", "Riot", "Redbone", "Terrified", "California", "Terrified", "The Night Me & Your Mama Met" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
