Back, Caught You Lookin For The Same Thing...

Hello again fart knockers. I hope you all had an intensely inebriated holiday season and share the sorrow of returning to the grind. Alas, we all need an education or a job or else we’d all have a blog or a reality show on the CW. I thought long and hard about this blog over the break and after the blood, sweat and tears a typical nap incurs, I’ve decided to have monthly themes. I’m really easily distracted and deciding what to put up and talk about is a daunting task for me. I’m also lazy and without guidance I will nap. I intend on finishing the listing of really dope things, much to everyone’s chagrin, but I kind of feel like I should finish it if for no other reason than to feel like my listing does not parallel the rest of my unfinished novels, paintings and guano sculptures that clutter my past. So, welcome to January, “The month of beats.” It’s a month filled with some of my favorite producers and instrumental artists. Call it “Beats” Call it “Downtempo,” call it “Trip-Hop,” call it “the secretion from the infected and gaping anal sore of humanity”, I don’t care. It’s one of my favs and I now bestow it unto you.

I figure I’ll start with Shadow.
I don’t really know what to say about this dude. His impact is immeasurable. His skill is undeniable. I mean Monosyllabic!? I am not really feeling the newer shit but that’s more because of the lyrics on top and less the music. Whatever you can’t deny the dude. If you do, you don’t understand what goes into programming or you make beats on an SK-1.
I’m putting up The Private Repress, which was a series of remixes, his Lesson 4 Archive Mix which is a shout back to Double Dee & Steinski and a BBC mix that came out during the UNKLE time. While this isn’t the best representation of his work, I figured some of you might not have it yet and the rest of the stuff is readily available out there. Enjoy.
