jneiro jarel - beat journey
Now Playing: electric souls soundsystem feat. the unabombers on giantstep.net
Topic: music appreciation

this album has not left my mp3 player. seriously. nothing's touching this right now.

if you're anything like me, you're still lamenting over the death of J Dilla. let's face it: there will only be one James Yancey, and the world was blessed to have him for the short period of time that it did. so, who's next in line to change the game? my predictions are Tadd Mullinix a.k.a. Dabrye, Waajeed of Platinum Pied Pipers, and Mc/DJ/Producer Jneiro Jarel.

his debut album Three Piece Puzzle dropped last year on Ropeadope, ridiculously good hip-hop with touches of future soul (what some call "broken beat") here and there. now the brother's back with a new one: Beat Journey, released under the name Dr. Who Dat? on Lex Records. it's that good stuff, y'all...all instrumental hip-hop. brazilian and free jazz flavors rising to the surface every now and again. expect the Dilla comparisons to come fast and strong. sure, the influence can be heard, but brother Jarel's carving his own niche.

check the Bleep player below to listen to some joints. again, it's all good, but my constant rewind joints are "On The Doelow," "ASAP (Flash)," and "Kelly Drive." i don't say this often, but if you're not feelin' this, you don't have a pulse...
