Nekubi & Hajino-Brooklyn 85-Beat Tape

The concept behind this project was to capture the atmosphere of Brooklyn, New York in the mid 80’s.
Consider it a mini study of the aural aesthetics, textures and trends of that era, by two kids trying to step into the future.
The result is a split 30 min tape between nekubi and hajino, full of lo-fi texturing and obscure nostalgic sketches, each one delivering their own perspective of the concept.

このプロジェクトのコンセプトは80年代中期のブルックリン、そしてニューヨークの空気感をつかむということでした。
2人の少年が未来に踏み出そうとする試みによる、その時代の聞きざわりの美しさとテクスチュアとトレンドのちょっとした探求と思ってください。
その結果生まれたのがnekubiとhajinoによる30分のテープです。
ローファイ感満点のテクスチュアとぼんやりしたノスタルジックなスケッチ、そのそれぞれはそんなコンセプトから由来したものです。

DJ Eclipse-The Halftime Show Larry Smith Tribute-Mix

DJ Eclipse sais:

On December 19th legendary producer Larry Smith passed away. He was responsible for almost all of Whodini and RUN-D.M.C.’s classics as well as contributing to many other artists such as the Fat Boys and Kurtis Blow. To many of us he was considered the first Hip Hop producer. RUN-D.M.C.’s “Sucker M.C.’s” set Hip Hop on a path in a new musical direction. On Wednesday, December 24th DJ Eclipse and The Halftime Show paid tribute to Larry with many of the songs that he was responsible for making along with phone calls from his longtime friend Spyder D, his son Larry Smith Jr. and a fan of Larry’s turned producer, DJ Premier.
