J Rawls Presents The Liquid Crystal Project

CD (Item 572335) Hum Drums, 2006 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

Hip hop boom bap beatcraft mixed smoothly with a jazz-centered vibe from the mind of J Rawls – a mostly mellow, lightly tripped-out instrumentals effort unlike anything else he's ever laid down! J Rawls puts his reliably unique spin on the jazzhop formula – assembling a live combo with drums, guitar, keys and Fender Rhodes – with occasional sax and flute. Rawls crafts tributes to Dilla (a pioneer in this kinds genre defying groove), Cal Tjader, Bobby Hutcherson and Pete & CL – and it all melds into the vibe nicely. A welcome move into modern groove from one of the most reliable producers around! Tracks include "The D E Effect", "Heart Throb", "Infancy", "A Tribute To Dilla", "Remember When", "Simple Game Plan", "Still Taking It EZ", "A Tribute To Bobby", Runing", "Cao", "A Tribute To TROY" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

A groovy set of spacey hip hop and jazzy instrumentals from J Rawls & Co – a very much welcome sequel to the Liquid Crystal Project! This time out the sound even more focused on the live band elements that fleshed out the first album, with ever soaring keys and sax in the mix – and ... CD

Pudgee Tha Phat Bastard

Give 'Em The Finger
Giant/Reprise, 1993. Used
Early 90s Trakmasterz boom bap production holds most of this LP together from Pudgee, one of the many side bars in the early 90s hip hop game. Pudgee'd go on to surface again here and there, but this is pretty much the one lasting document he's left. Fairly raw for a major label hip hop album ... CD
Traffic, 2011. Used
Edo G delivers again in what has been one of the longest living careers in hip hop – from the early 90s classics with Da Bulldogs to today – and Face In The Crowd is no doubt his best work of the later years! It's got production by DJ Premier & Static Selektah – plus ... CD

Beastie Boys

Licensed To Ill
Def Jam, 1986. Used
The game changing Def Jam classic – and possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from ... CD

Beastie Boys

Ill Communication
Grand Royal, 1994. Used
What can we say? The Beasties continue with the live jazz/funk/garage (as in rock, not house) sound and keyboards by Money Mark. With the classic "Get It Together" featuring Q-Tip. And you can't go wrong with any LP that samples Ramelzee and K-Rob's "Beat Bop." Other tracks ... CD
