Pritt Kalsi sais:

Music innovator and hard rock funk scientist DJ Moe Love is bringing the true UltraMagnetic sound. Before the Madlib , and J-Dilla movement, nothing was moving funkier and faster in the golden era then UltraMagnetic MC’s!! In the 80’s on the “nine” block on Washington Avenue in the south Bronx at his cousins Patrick and Cedric “Ced-Gee” Miller’s house aka Ultra-Lab, is where Moe Love found his calling as a beat digger, DJ and Producer.

Simultaneously He watched the formation of KRS One and Scott La Rock go from the Celebrity Three to Boogie Down Productions, to aligning with Kool Keith, Ced-Gee,T.R. Love and Original Ronnie T. to become UltraMagnetic MC’s. Moe Love’s early passion for record digging for not just rare jazz, funk and soul breaks but the odd sound library and spoken word records is what helped shape the UltraMagnetic sound!! Moe Love’s sample chops and mastery of the SP 1200 is unmatched and distinctly funky along with his trademark scratches is what keeps the essence of the hip-hop on fire!!!

Moe Love’s sound can be heard on many classics from UltraMagnetic MC’S, Tim Dog, King Tee, BeastieBoys, Dr. Doom, Slaughter House Cartel, Tricky, Demagogue and the Prodigy,

The album picks up where the UltraMagnetic MC’s Four Horsemen album left off!! A collection of unheard SP 1200 floppy discs recorded and professionally mixed that sounds so
organically dope you understand Moe’s importance in Ultra. Moe Love adds his classic rugged scratches , cuts and left field sounds, over slick chopped saucy sweet grooves layered over hard concrete drums!!

This album is a journey from the silver wall papered Ultra Lab days in the Bronx to his Forte Greene Brooklyn park jam experiences. This album is highly anticipated and brings the true heads who have been craving the original UltraMagnetic sound to the table!!

Limited colored vinyl pressing, 300 only. This will be one of those records that will find a place in your collection under timeless classic.

Kanye West-Beat Tape (Sept. ’97) *UNRELEASED

IF , that’s if , this is real then you’ve seen me say here many times that I always like when the power of the net provides things like this . It gives you a look into an artists process before or during their run . This is allegedly an early Kanye beat tape from 1997 when he was 20 years old .Who knows how many of these he made and lost ? Or maybe it was his cousin that stupid muthafucker . He had already been making runs to New York to try and get on , and ripping freestyle sessions at Fat Beats before that but that was rapping . Listen in on a partial history of his on the boards .
