Hip Hop Drums: Jake One 'Snare Jordan' Drum Kit and Behind The Beat: 'Rock Co. Kane Flow'

Jake One shows The Drum Broker how he came up with one of the greatest beats in hip hop history: 'Rock Co. Kane Flow' for De La Soul and MF DOOM.

This is one of those tracks that I can never play without bringing back to the beginning at least once.

On top of how hard the beat is, and how quotable the lyrics are ('...He eat rappers like part of a complete breakfast / your rhymes ain't worth the weight of they cheap necklace...'), this is one of the most well mixed rap songs every IMO.  This track sounds great on every format or system I've heard it on. 

This great video is in honour of Jake One's 'Snare Jordan' drum kit.  From the good folks over at The Drum Broker:

Jake One's has a reputation for being one of the most prolific hip hop producers during the last decade. As part of G-Unit's in house production team and producing handful of indie classics, Jake One quickly became an industry "go to" producer.

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop

The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below). 

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is.

The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo.

Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop.

Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies.

It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs.

Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which is potentially painful to an earbud wearing listener.

Admittedly I am very sensitive to certain high pitch frequencies.

However, to remedy this I wo…

Georgel ‘Colibrí’

REVIEW: 'Colibrí' highlights Georgel’s potential as a superstar in the making

It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as Georgel’s ‘Colibri’.

A slice of swaggering, sensual, big band pop, ‘Colibri’ is a superb offering from the singer songwriter. 
‘Colibrí’ immediately demands listener attention thanks to punchy horn stabs, satisfying drum fills and Georgel’s strong vocals.  Listener attention is maintained throughout due to the athletic and theatrical flair of both vocals and instrumentation. These theatrics never descend into ham or kitsch.

The hook is slinky and sensual, adding an extra layer to an already super-enjoyable cut. The memorable arrangement and vocals, together with professional mixing and mastering mean the song would be as much at home in a big-budget Hollywood musical or Broadway show as it would be on your favourite music streaming service.

A slice of swag…
