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 Lakim, Boom 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
(iN)Sect Records has been busy as of late, with a steady stream of releases hitting the masses in rapid-fire fashion. One of the latest gems is FEEL, a music video from new label artist Rob From Garden Street that embraces larp culture over a lo-fi breakbeat that sounds directly off of a YouTube playlist. Dig the video, leave a like and a comment, share it around, and stay tuned for Rob From Garden Street‘s debut album, which is coming soon.
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!
For every released song or project you hear from most producers, it’s safe to assume that there are a few songs or projects that you don’t, as the process of making a coherent album usually involves cutting away more so than adding on. Every once in a while, artists will find a way to take a look back during their forward momentum, and if we’re lucky, they’ll share some of those forgotten gems with us. This was recently the case with Austin-based producer Corduroi, who decided to dig through tracks created between 2015 to 2020 in order to curate his latest release, Wind Your Spring. If you’re a fan of his work, definitely don’t skip this one.
While digging through Facebook, I came across a post from the homie Brainwavve requesting links to recently released music, which of course resulted in an instant post save from me. There was quite a bit to choose from in terms of genre, style and so on, but one of the album covers really caught my attention. This, of course, was d(-_-)b‘s recent release, Ambient Minimalistic Turntableisms. I gave it a listen, and I was pleasantly surprised by the breakbeats used as a skeleton for a wide range of ambient and lush sounds, leaving an interesting gap that allows the listener to almost exist in the midst of each track. The songs oscillate between hip-hop and techno-esque sounds, further bridging style and sonic gaps. If you’re into instrumental, low key and/or experimental sounds, I’d say this one is for you. Check it out, donate a buck or two if you can, and spread it around for others to experience!
