Looking back, Looking forward – Hello 2012!

11 Jan

A quick post to wish you all a belated new year. Was flipping through some old tracks yesterday and thought this post would be a good way to usher in the new year.

Firstly, I was digging around and found this old gem from Slum Village’s first album “Fan-Tas-Tic (Vol. 1)” (1996). Its Dilla and Slum Village joy all the way through. What I didn’t know about this album is that is consisted of songs written in 96/97 but was not officially released until 8 years later. It had leaked in ’97 to critical acclaim.

 

Secondly, in anticipation of another Black Star album (its been 13 years since the last LP!), here is the single “Fix Up” released in Nov 2011. By the way Mos Def is now Yasiin Bey…go figure.
