Flip Side :: BoomBaptist Completes The Rick James Co-Release With Lakim

Last week, Lakim dropped I’m Rick James, Bitch​.​.​., one half of a shared single release with the homie BoomBaptist.  This past Monday marked the official full release of the project, meaning that everyone who got a fix with I’m Rick James, Bitch​.​.​. finally got their follow-up dosage via Boom‘s contribution, the super infectious Jerry Mane.  Much like LakimBoom takes the well known Rick James classic Mary Jane and not only chops it up to stack funk on funk, but he also follows the same structure of sample nods by including several hip-hop samples referencing or sampling the original.  Definitely click the image above, because you can not only get access to the tracks via Bandcamp, but there are a world of shirts and multi-colored vinyl options available as well.

The Infamous :: BoomBaptist And Lakim Team Up For An Off The Wall Rick James Tribute

Motown legend Rick James certainly lived a full life comprised of many ups and downs, up to and including the final year of his life where his star rose to as high as it had ever risen thanks to assists from Dave Chappelle and Charlie Murphy.  It’s been a minute since he’s been gone, but his impact and influence have certainly not been forgotten, so it’s no surprise that BoomBaptist and Lakim have taken two Rick James classics and given them their respective production special touches, resulting in a pair of singles that recontextualize songs we are deeply familiar with in wonderful ways.  Currently you can listen to Lakim‘s effort, the head-nod inducing I’m Rick James, Bitch, with BoomBaptist‘s Jerry Mane releasing the day after Thanksgiving and finalizing the release of the dual single.  All of the physical merch appears to be gone, but that shouldn’t stop you from copping the digital release if you can while streaming and sharing regardless.

Unlocking Life :: Corduroi Releases ‘ISO/Vex’

From the digital desk of Corduroi :

ISO/Vex serves as a hopeful, inward exploration and invitation to ponder both the immense daily trials we face individually, together, and separately as the human race and the insatiable curiosities of life or potential thereof in other places of the universe.  Recordings are built and layered with a mangled soiree of hardware drum machines, synthesizers, modular experiments, breaks, fragments of circuit bent 8-16bit game consoles, NASA recordings, my cat, and nods of inspiration drawn from some of my favorite records and video games of all time.  All of this used to create a cyber-jeweled odyssey of electro, idm, techno, industrial, and ambient breakbeat.”

Check it out asap, support if you can, share it around, and support your local genius creatives!

Connective Tissue :: BoomBaptist Drops ‘ZoomBaptist’ Single

Is BoomBaptist already working on a new project so close to the powerhouse that was Boom Shakalaka?  Is he just messing around in the moment, similar to his recent release COVID The Earth?  Did Boom mess around and find some gold while in a session and decide to bless us with a one-off track?  I don’t have the answers, but that won’t stop me from sharing ZoomBaptist with everyone.  Cop it if you can, share it around regardless, and get hip to BoomBaptist quick, because it feels like this is the beginning of a new wave of content.

Infectious Sound :: Feedback Alliance Releases ‘Quarantine’ Compilation

98063356_292484341764416_3883610017177272320_n

For those unfamiliar with Feedback Alliance, the collective consists of a talent-filled roster of producers who exchange sample packs regularly in order to see what range of creativity can come from a similar foundation.  With self-isolation still going strong through most of the nation, the fellas put together Quarantine, a compilation of tracks using quarantine as the unifying theme (obviously).  With such a broad but dominant theme to work with, as well as the normal stipulations and limitations lifted, the members of Feedback Alliance that contributed to the compilation were really allowed to spread their wings, resulting in a very lush, diverse and expressive soundscape.  If you’ve got a streaming service, seek this one out and thank me later.

Jam Session :: BoomBaptist Goes Big With ‘Boom Shakalaka’ Release

a3472445872_10

BoomBaptist has become a master of the album rollout over the past year or so, as the multi-faceted promotional campaign for The Vapor Caves proved.  Boom put his creative genius to use once again for the release of Boom Shakalaka, his latest solo release on (iN)Sect Records.  Anybody who knows Boom knows he loves basketball, with the legendary video game NBA Jams playing a large role in that love affair, so it makes complete sense that the aesthetic of Boom Shakalaka would be inspired by and centered around the game and its connected culture.  The music speaks for itself, with Boom‘s signature swing and drum patterns nesting the multitude of samples perfectly.  To crown the event, Boom even performed live from inside an NBA Jam cabinet :

Check it out all, cop some of that merch, and spread the word!
