I just want to start by thanking everyone again for supporting this album. I'm really pleased with how the final project came out. I wanted to keep a minimalist sound as Vangelis did with the original score which I feel I did fairly well. I chose to not play much additional synth parts as my way in giving tribute to Vangelis for his original synth work. I re-watched this movie about 2 years ago while I was really getting into making beats and I was using still mainly using synths to make up beats rather than sampling. The feel of the soundtrack and the fact it was composed on synths in 82 was very inspiring and I took that feeling in a hiphop twist for many of the beats I did on my upcoming album 'Neo Gotham Projects'. The feel factor in this project was huge for me, I think it was helped by the fact I was just cutting work which already had an incredible feel. I went mostly all with the J Dilla kit I have posted in my blog for drums except for High-Hats which I don't really like from the Dilla kit but it's still up to download free. The whole work was done in FL Studio 9 XXL Producer Edition, a great program I highly recommend. If you like the album please support by donating or just sharing this with others and leaving encouraging comments below, they help to fuel my fire to make you more good music. Thanks again to all who have supported so far.
In my world what's not to like about this track. Shit you got a sick ass break, the drum kits got that killin jazz feel, then you get these gorgeous horns. It's so nice for me at this point in hiphop to see guys like this keep expanding while it still has that classic hiphop sound. Mos has displayed some amazing skill on this, show love for the real shit.
Thought I'd post yet another killer free EP from Bandcamp, which is honestly the most kick ass music site going but anyway. Really looking forward to this full project coming out, this sampler is vibed out. The track with Speech is amazing. When I used to do acoustic shows I always did 'Mr. Wendel' so hearing him colab with Atari is pretty cool shit. Go grab this to rock in your Ipod's it won't disappoint.
Not sure why I didn't blog this right when I found it. I have listened to this 2-3 times through fully and then hit up the single fav tracks prolly 10 times each. This is maybe THE best remix album I've ever heard. The thing I think makes this so good is each track sounds like something you'd expect to hear on an album from these people. Show MagOwl some love and go download this you wont regret, it's FREE and dope fully.
I seen a few thing around about this album but being so caught up in everything else in my music and other peoples I wasn't even sure it dropped. So a went searching the other night and found a few video's from it. This one's off the chain! I know RZA wasn't involved in this album which is funny cause it totally reminds me of Afro Samurai. I think this is Raekwon's best work in my opinion. Something about this album has an almost MF DOOM appeal to it, which I just can't put my finger on, but hey BANG this to check it out.
