BSOTS 080 - 2008 recap (pt. two)
Now Playing: madlib - beat konducta vol. 5 - dil cosby suite
Topic: my podcasts

seeing as how it's almost the end of february, what say we finally get the 2008 recap done, m'kay?

egadz starts things off with a beautiful instrumental lying somewhere in between electronic and alternative avenues, but wouldn't exist without hip-hop turntablist influence. oddisee follows with slick production for phonte and big pooh of little brother to lace lovely, as always. idiot savant comes through with another memorable one (wonder how the cure fans out there will react to this one), phashara holds it down for chi-town and hip-hop with thoughtful words that ease us into the piano-led crush of dj sun, wonderfully remixed by genre jazz. then it's up to western canada for a bonafide head nodder from moka only.

what's the science? the chemistry that obviously exists between carlos nino of build an ark/life force trio/ammoncontact fame and john robinson (lil' sci) from scienz of life. i reviewed abel okugawa's album recently and thought it was really beautiful. i kept coming back to "reparations," so it was only right to have that song in the mix as well. after that, the ghostly international label drops a gem in the form of michna's "swiss glide." it's hip-hop with a trombone in it, what's not to like? myself was the secret weapon last year - his protest in disguise album is a force to be reckoned with. and if you're gonna get harder, you'd have to follow up with the black panther of rap, paris a.k.a. p-dog, the original "bush killa." "don't stop the movement" is the first song on his new album, acid reflex, and it is GOOD, y'all. really good. definitely recommended for all the public enemy and x-clan fans out there.

ah, j*davey. i'm totally crushing on the lead vocalist, i admit it. and "slooow" only makes me more infatuated with miss jack davey. damn good song. singer/songwriter ben senterfit keeps up the sexy flow with "hush", a song i found out about through ariel publicity. and then, the show stopper: "amsterdamn" by yoome, a collaborative project between producer tony trimm, renee louise-carafice, and serengeti (youtube video available at the top of this entry). this episode ends with beyond absence's "space trip," a quiet and introspective tune that has really grown on me. 2009 is shaping up to be another great year for music and i can't wait to see what the world of podsafe sounds has to offer.
