Fifth Sun

the next crew I don’t have much info on hand is called FIFTH SUN.

obviously they consist of US and latino rappers and come from the west coast. The wax here was released on Ince Records but no clue when exactly. The main title is the very sombre “blast the nickel”. On the flip you got the next great track called “pardon mé madre” that beatwise lets u chill immediately. The last track (and my personal secret winner on here) is the sick “whatever it takes” – great beat, smoothest violin-tunes and a thrillin keyboard-sample I know from somewhere (but can’t remember from where…).

What I found is that the crew obviously released another twelve in 2000 on Loud Records with the tracks “aver aver” and “west coast love” but I haven’t heard that yet…

Njoy yo weekendz peepz!

Fifth Sun, hun? Great find.

Are you planning to rip the songs for this vinyl anytime soon?

Ooops, must have missed the link. Sorry, guys.

Anyway, I know of Fifth Sun. They are a Chicano rap group from Coachella, California. Originally four members: Coyote/Temoc, Chingon, Malverde and DJ Chase Martinez. They had a hot local single called "Aver, Aver (Spanish Dance Version)" and were once signed to Loud Records. They are all close affilates with the radio network Pocos Pero Locos, hosted by Khool-Aid and E-Dubb.

I would like to add this to Discogs.com. May I have permission to post this on the archive?

Sorry, I don't have the "Aver, Aver" rip. I'm actually looking for the original version (There are two versions of this track, available on the same vinyl).

I like your email address, so I can give you some info regarding discogs.com. You can also find me on the DubCC forums. I'm more active there.

Malverde is still active. He just put out his second solo LP in Feb of this year on Machete Music. Tony Touch and Son Doobie of Funkdoobiest are featured on there. All beats on both his albums were produced by Brett Bouldin. Malverde's first solo album (Mi Palabra) was all in Spanish, and the second album (La Leyenda Continua) was bilingual.
Check out his myspace page: www.myspace.com/malverde
or the video mixtape I did on youtube:
