ANGEL FACE (2)

by: ASHWAN
A nice rock-hop number from the ASHWAN - Van Buren - Van Buren connection. GO LIVERPOOL!

Copy Wrong

Not easy listening, but a work of cut-up mastery that demands you pay attention. This epic work clocks in at 14 minutes but Shoes says in this track more than what can be posted to 1000 forum/listserve diatribes.

This one deserves multiple listening and studying. This is cut-up school.

Castle Of Serenades

This is good.

noTV

I personally love my TV. Sohaclara has to watch more public access. ; ) The sax really drives this track but the little details in the background are what make it captivating. Great mellow background music. : )

LOVESONG

Curious is solid. Always. This track is a little on the soft side but still has enough to keep it rockin’ . Beautiful, romantic hip-hop. (yes I know those words don’t make any sense.) Just check it out. ; )

AOW - Baby instrumental

OK just so you know, the word “Baby” is repeated about fifty times through this song so if that sort of thing ticks you off then don’t listen to this track. If you can get over that then this is one sweet track. Nice use of drums and guitar. A very mellow hip-hop groove. If you like Kid Loco, you’ll love this. : )

by: wuszu
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THESE GUYS ARE SAYING, SO I CANNOT ENDORSE THEIR IDEAS, BUT THIS IS SOME NICE INTERESTING R’N’B STYLE HIP HOP COMING STRAIGHT OUTTA……….POLAND! I CLICKED ON SOME OF THEIR LINKS AND FOUND SOME NICE ENERGY THERE TOO.

HAVE TO SAY THOUGH, THE REAL REASON I RATE THIS SO HIGH IS FOR THE VOICE OF MASIA…EVERYTHING IS VERY GOOD, BUT SHE IS EXCEPTIONAL.

LET'S TAKE IT BACK

by: ASHWAN
Classic Old School topped with Euro flavored ambience. If you’ve been out in the boonies somewhere you might not know that Ashwan is always delivering very solid hip-hop tracks to the masses. If I had to guess, I’d say he was a bit of a purist. Having said that, this track starts off with an almost Enigma or Massive Attack type intro and then delves into one of the grooviest grooves I’ve heard in a minute. The drums, bass and guitar alone are enough to satisfy my appetite for music. It kinda has a reggae vibe to it, but its distinctly hip-hop and all of the lyricists are on par with the production. I know you’ll enjoy this one.
Pat Chilla The Beat Gorilla

Just Like Me

Everyone here at CC Mixter has the greatest respect for Pat Chilla the Beat Gorilla . This track shows us why. Very smooth and simple on the surface. Tons of goodies inside. This is one tasty piece of ear candy. : )

Black Atlantic

Head snapping funk reminiscent of Bowie’s Young Americans era.

I resisted posted this as a ‘pick’ because of the nepotistic connection to this track, DJ Peregrine being my son after all, however after several days of enjoyment and pleasure I throw ethical caution to the wind and say let me and the Speaker of the House go down in flames together.

Bens Werk

Calm, funky, beautiful. A deceptively simple but emotionally deep remix of a remix. Speaks volumes, if not IN volume, about the power of building on previous works. Or is t “werks”?

Digital Data

by: ASHWAN
The cockney rapper stikes again. ASHWAN struts through the track with a jazzy acoustic bass, holding down the bottom while Curious trades spits with Chatterbox for a quick verse each. A short turn but defies you to not bob your head to the backbeat while both Curious and Chatter cuts through, up and around the beat.

Inner Child

I wish I could do something besides play guitar. Someone ought to sample this. Great Middle Eastern sounding track.

Making Me Nervous (UNIT-E Mix)

by: Sharp
An amazing remix of one of my favorites indie musicians (Brad Sucks). This remix is definitely worthy of club play!
