This is a review about a man that is mainly known for his (mostly) awesome productions he did in the mid / late nineties in the underground-scene. We’re talkin’ bout Mr. Michael Gomez, better known as DJ SHOK.
One of his 1st productions I’m aware of is the one on the great twelve from “Parallax – don’t mean jak b/w bleeding hate”. Then he worked for many artists who got signed by the Mass Vinyl Label (Parallax, Hi-Tech, Ei8ghtrack) and also had some amazing productions on the Official Jointz Recordings (e.g. “X-perado’s: the entity / verbal reality” which we showed u already in our blog). From 98/99 he started working for DMX, Ruff Ryders and all the “big” (bling-bling-ish) catz and this is when I also said good-bye & stopped coppin’ his work (to each his own but this was def too wack then, sorry to say so!).
Now let’s get to the piece-of-interest. This wax was released on the great Mass Vinyl label in 1997. the twelve is called SHOK THERAPY and brings you the right sound to chill with and dedicate oneself to them mighty green herbz! Track one on the a-side is called “padlock” and features the emcees HI-TECH, JEDI & SPECTRUM. On the flipside you have the “s.o.s (same ol’ sh*t)” track with emcees JEDI and MATRIX on the mic.
so relax yo’self n get high with that ish! …. Peace
