Sample RJD2’s Tin Foil Hat EP

Tin Foil Hat EP Vinyl

I know I’m probably not authorized to post the entire Tin Foil Hat EP, the latest offering from producer extraordinaire & multi-instrumentalist RJD2, so I’ll hit my faithful readers up with a couple tracks that I like and let you holla at me if you need it hunt down the rest.

The ex-Def Jux musician returns on this EP to the instrumental soundscapes fusing hip-hop, experimental, and hints of dub, funk & trip-hop that highlighted his first two albums Deadringer and Since We Last Spoke but were missing almost entirely from ’07’s The Third Hand.

If you like the songs below, pick up your copy of the Tin Foil Hat EP as part of RJD2’s 2002-2010 collection on Amazon.

Big thanks to Jeff Weiss (whose writing I greatly admire and openly envy) for the heads up, Enjoy!

Live Re-Mixing 101

KNK

I’ve been meaning to post this for a minute, but this annoying thing called real life got in the way of blogging right quick.

I got this mix in my inbox last week and I’ve been bumping it steadily ever since.

Remix crew Keys N Krates, comprised of DJ Jr Flo, keyboardist Matisse & drummer Adam Tune, flip some classic hip-hop records for an organic, real-time podcast called Live Re-Mixing 101 presented by Urb Magazine.

Listen as Matisse reinterprets Just Blaze’s instantly-recognizable melody from Jay-Z’s “Public Service Annoucement.” Also, hear Jr Flo scratch the Aretha Franklin sample from Mos Def’s “Miss Fat Booty” and Lauryn Hill’s eloquent vocals from “Fu Ge La” float smoothly over Tune’s live drums. Definitely ain’t no fakin’ the funk on this one!

I highly recommend turning the volume up and letting this half-hour podcast mix rock. Whether you’re in the whip or at the crib with your peoples, I’ll bet my bottom dollar this impresses.

To find out more about Keys N Krates, hit up KeysNCrates.com or their blog

Shout to Armando for sending this over, Enjoy!
