DJ Koco AKA Shimokita
Hydra: Underground's Finest
CD | 2015 | JP | Original (Octave)
6,59 €* 21,99 € -70%
Release:2015 / JP – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
An integral part of the East Coast underground hip hop movement from 1995-2005, Hydra is world reknown for sought-after singles by major label-affiliated artists Mobb Deep (Loud/Sony), Screwball (Tommy Boy), Cormega (Def Jam), The Beatnuts (Relativity), as well as the top tier of a burgeoning independent movement: The High & The Mighty, Godfather Don, Nick Wiz & The Ghetto Pros, and was the launching point for a string of A-list producers: A Kid Called Roots, Alchemist, E-Boogie, Mike Heron, EZ Elpee, Ayatollah, and DJ Fusion are just some of the producers that had their debut or nearly-debut credit on a Hydra single. Most of these tracks are on CD for the first time, taken from vinyl, skillfully sequenced and mixed by Japan’s DJ Koco (Donut Records), who’s as well known for his deep underground hip hop knowledge as he is for his battle, beat juggling and scratching skills. DJ Koco has a handful of critically-praised mixes circulating, and is in demand as an opener for Japanese dates for US hip hop acts.
Kankick Vs. DJ Choku - Beat Life
Kankick Vs. DJ Choku
Beat Life
CD | 2015 | JP | Original (Octave)
21,99 €*
Release:2015 / JP – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Kankick proves here he deserves to be name-checked alongside more famous fellow ‘Nard-bred beatmaker brothers MADLIB and OHNO. Indeed he is closely associated with the members of Lootpack, and as part of the LIKWIT CREW family (Alkoholiks, Madlib, Lootpack, Defari, King Tee, others) has several major-label production credits to his name. This mostly instrumental collection closely echoes Madlib’s successful “”Medicine Show” series, heavily sample-based with a strong weed vibe, culled from his 20+years of musical output on a variety of labels including Stones Throw, Groove Attack, Ramp, Poo-Bah and Up Above. This collection has as much in common with the current LA Beat Scene (Gaslamp Killer, Exile, Low End Theory, Tokimonsta, Nosaj Thing) as it does with the fondly-recalled “backpack” hip hop movement of the late 1990s/early 2000s (J Dilla, DITC, Beatminerz, Lyricist Lounge). MCs crop up on only a handful of the 20+ cuts here, providing a “weededed” accent to a laid back, blunted, jazzy ride.
