    House Shoes “The King James Version, Volume 2″ Stream | @HouseShoes


    If you happen to be one of the many Dilla enthusiasts, you may get chills on certain parts of this mix as I did. Especially when he dropped The Weavers sample! With all of that being said, and as a part of Mad Decent Radio, DJ House Shoes has unleashed the second volume to his The King James Version mixes. You can listen below and grab Shoes’ mix from iTunes.

    In celebration of James “J Dilla” Yancey’s 40th birthday, House Shoes presents the first half of the follow up to his critically acclaimed “The King James Version” mix, paying tribute to one of, if not the best producer in hip-hop’s history by strolling through some more of the records that were mined by Dilla for his productions. From jazz, to soul, to moog and electronica and more, this mix serves as a reminder to show how broad the range of music that inspired him was. Taken from all original vinyl. No youtube rips. No mp3s. None of that bulllshit.

    Eclectic Method “A Brief History of Sampling” (Video) | @EclecticMethod

    Check out this dope video from Eclectic Method that showcases a dope, informative mix about sampling. Check out their website here.

    A video remix journey through the history of sampling taking in some of the most noted breaks and riffs of the decades. A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative.

    Red Bull Music Academy Radio: Truth & Soul Label Special | @RBMA


    Red Bull Music Academy Radio recently let go the Truth & Soul Label Special that features narration from Danny Akalepse and lot of great tunes. Danny breaks down the Truth & Soul’s sound, how it got to where it is, and then later on a lot more detail on the specific on the aesthetic of the music on the label. This is dope for an easy going Saturday morning. Enjoy, and check out the official page.

    With all these people jumping the soul revivalist bandwagon lately, you can’t put a price on a water-proof institution such as Brooklyn’s label and production team Truth & Soul. Operating out of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the T&S story really got started when Phil Lehman left Desco Records to start his own imprint, Soul Fire, which he then handed over to Jeff Silverman and Leon Michels. After a brief period of revamping the label’s name and sonic aesthetics, Truth & Soul quickly established itself as a main catalyst for the revitalization of analogue soul vibes with up-to-date arrangements and spot-on songwriting. Besides signing new artists to their fledgling label, Jeff and Leon became household producers and songwriters in their own rights, working with the likes of Aloe Blacc, Iggy Pop, Amy Winehouse, and Adele. In order to facilitate all of that, Danny Akalepse joined the team as label manager in 2007. Since then, Truth & Soul have gained notoriety for shining a light on talent that has been overlooked for way too long: take Lee Fields’ pitch-perfect true school version of 70s soul, the boricua-meets-NYC salsa tinged funk from Bronx River Pkwy, and El Michels Affair’s psychedelic hip hop renditions. In 2012 T&S made another seminal discovery when they re-released Power Fuerza, an obscure 1971 crate digger classic by The Ghetto Brothers, a band comprised of a Bronx-based Latino gang who abandoned the thug life after hearing The Beatles (which is, brilliantly enough, precisely what Power Fuerza sounds like). Between unearthing lost classics to new versions of vintage sounds, Truth & Soul occupy a uniquely timeless zone all of their own.
