2nd audio-snack for today - hope y'all gonna enjoy this piece of wax!
the name of the artist here is...

I googled this record and artist and couldn't find any other link than to this twelve here and am not sure if this is his only release.
the wax was dropped in 1999 on Nexus Records and as the run-out is ....001 I assume it was the first (and only?) record on this label .
anyway - on it u gonna find the main title which is pure heat: "supreme soloist". if u dunno then listen to it and I'm sure most of u cats gonna agree this shit gives u "audio-orgasms"!
the b-side brings you "rhymes adventurous" which is a really solid and smooth track and I even can live with that female chorus-part as it somehow fits to the whole melody.

when doing search bout the artist I stumbled upon another cat called SABOTAWJ (check here). name's spelled slightly different and so far I couldn't find out if it's same cat or not (I don't think so...still ain't sure at all). so I sent a message to this Sabotawj and hope I can share more information on this soon...
UPDATE: just got confirmation from Sabotawj that he ain't the Sabotaj reviewed in here..
ps: mad props to my man Mirro who gave me this wax to review in here...nice find homie!

Dr. Becket

after long time my buzy (and honestly also sometimes lazy) ass was able to rip some new stuff for y'all. here's 2 drops from the emcee known as ...

aka Dr Becket. Dude is active since the late 90s already and I'm sury y'all know most of his earlier releases (check discogs and then youtube where u can find lots of his older work). if u wanna get in touch wit him then check his myspace.
back to the twelve here which is available in tha tube but downloading from there is sometimes not known to peeps and then quality may not be best...
here u can get that delicious wax from 2001 with the crazy smooth track "lyrixcism"...relax, puff lah (if u do so) and simply enjoy it! on the flip u get "hittin hardest pt.2" which is solid but isn't as dope as the original.

next piece is an EP titled "docta bec" which is limited to 200 copies only and mad nice considering that the material is from 2007 "only". all the 6 tracks on it are freakin dope - using a lot of laid back jazz n blues tunes. if u didn't hear that wax already def give it a try - this is another record from him that is mad underrated and when looking at all his work I really wonder why dude didn't get more credit in all these years!?!!

Dr. Becket_docta bec-EP

I ain't sure if the Doc put out some more stuff by his own later on (he had some appearances on other works though)...maybe u guys got some more info?
anyway - enjoy the material here and listen to his other works that you can find all over the net, it's def worth it!!!

V.A. - Inquisitive Combos

nice lil compilation on the small "Inquisitive Records" label, dropped in 2002.
title of this comp is:

the reason I bought this wax is the side with the 2 tracks from the Michigan crew COMMON GROUND (DJ Heavy, Jayem & J.C. Inquisitive) which are the mellow n easygoing "react" and "yathinkitsjus" which uses pretty crazy samples that convinced me to buy this cheapo some years ago.
the flipside contains a track by Common Ground's main producer: Lacks aka Lacksidaisycal aka Elevator Music... title is "what's up" and the tune is rather kinda club-joint that ain't really my cup of tea. last track on the wax is a beat by Lacks (Elevator Music) - a nice one to relax for sure!
well - hope u gonna enjoy this one....lemme know!

Case Negre

you may assume already by the headline that this twelve is of French origin....
I present you here a nice piece outta 2004 from the crew (LE) CASE NEGRE.
The crew is part of the French Boogotop massiv and from what I know started to get the first shines back in the mid 90s when they were featured on famous DJ Cut Killer's mixtapes. If discogs data's correct then their first own release was in 98 and personally I also only know of the 2 wax mentioned there. you can go the youtube (here) and have a listen...

about this record:
well, as mentioned this was dropped in 2004 (only) but this should not keep u away from givin' it a try (also not cuz it's not an English rappin' record)!
I first saw the main title "bout de vie" on French "zik"-music channel and was blown away by that fuckin sick beat and it's damn heavy bassline! hardcore-tunez for y'all ears!!
but as the record was an independent drop, distribution was freakin' poor and it was a hassle to get such a copy (I finally found one bout 2 years later in a 2nd hand store).
only then I noticed the other 2 tracks on the flipside and was even more happy! not only I had this sick a-sider "bout de vie" but on the flip there was also a really smooth and relaxing track titled "les temps". the last track is called "aux portes de la folie" - another pretty solid track!
well, give it a try and let me know if u feelin this wax too!

Bored Stiff - conspiracy theory
Chan - chronic whisper
DuoDie - maintain

Otierre ft. La Pina

time again for some non-english-rappin stuff in here so op'n yo' earz!
the twelve of today is one I got (more or less) since it dropped back then in 97 on the Polydor label. OTIERRE (also OTR) is the name of this quite popular crew from Varese, Italy. The super-group formed in 1991 and broke in 1998. during this period OTR had quite a lot of emcees (Esa, Polare, Torrido, Azza, Intruso, Limite) and DJs (Fede, Irmu, Vigor, Vez, Nitro) and on this 12" as well as the respective LP (titled "dalla sede") they also featured female emcee La Pina. La Pina was born in Florence and is kind of the Italian rap queen as she's told to be the 1st female rapper in this country.

let's talk about the content: on this nice vinyl u gonna find 2 tracks which is the main title "rispettane l'aroma" - a nice head-nodder and my absolute favorite and also kinda anthem for me n the homies back then on the flipside, "play our position". I remember that all the times this track was played at jams the crowd would just go absolutely nuts! "play your position" also features guest emcee from Bruxelles' (Belgium) CNN crew - Rivalcapone.

I know that many of my readers are not really willin' to listen to stuff they don't understand but I definitely recommend to give this sh*t a try. I'm pretty positive u won't regret it, especially cuz of dat b-sider "play our position"!

well then, enjoy this n drop a comment how u feelin this twelve...

Horeson J.A.E. & Eduardo Scizzahandz

what's good peepz? another rip from my cratez. this time it's about the emcee HORESON J.A.E. & (DJ) EDUARDO SCIZZAHANDZ from Flint, MI.

The 2 had their debut appearance on a cassingle when they were in the group "Phunky Lab Munkeez" (together with Ed's younger bro BOY WONDER). Find here the track "klassic emcee" from that work from 1997.
Then in the late 90's and early 2000 J.A.E. & Ed released several tracks and among these he was able to drop the great "translation regulation-12" on the "A Lab Cult" label in 2001.
The wax comes with 3 songs: "translation regulation" as the main title. on the flip-side you gonna find the tracks "in time jesus returns" and the great posse-track "march madness" that features the emcees PUGSLEE ATOMZ, NAME OBSCURE, OPTIMUS PRIME, O-TYPE STAR and J.U.I.C.E.
all 3 tracks are from very good to f?ckin great IMO - I really dig this record and consistently spin it on the decks since I bought that wax back in 01.
as I said already, J.A.E. dropped also some other tracks in the early 2000 and here you can get 2 of them - enjoy! BTW: these 2 tracks were produced by STARVING ARTISTS CREW members IQ and SP.

Later on J.A.E. changed his name to Tellie Tel so you can google that too and find some more recent material from him...
aigh'then - peace til the next post!

DJ Strictnine & Paranorm

here's one about the duo ...

the duo originally comes from South Bend, Indiana (Paranorm meanwhile lives in LA) and had their debut in 1999 on Beastie Boys Grand Royal Label. the duo is still very active and you can find them both on mysapce (paranorm / dj strictnine). Plus I especially recommend Paranorms (aka Parakhan) site here as you can get tons of free mp3s from his work! amazing and big up to the Killa Wolf (another aka of him) for upping those!

now back to the initail purpose of this post which is the debut mentioned above - the "mic reaction-12" on Grand Royal. you get totally 4 tracks on this wax: mic reaction / human ebola / planet wicked & psychological profiles. all the tracks are freakin dope! chilled, dark, spherical....just love that! IMO the best tune is "planet wicked" but make your own decisions...
btw: you can also see the video to "mic reaction" in tha tube!
