Forgotten Treasure: Daft Punk “Aerodynamic” (Slum Village / Jay Dee Remix)

Can’t believe I’ve never shared this with all of you yet. Not that this J Dilla production is the rarest thing he’s ever done but it’s definitely one of the most interesting and there is quite a bit of controversy around this one amongst Dilla heads. The controversy lies in …

Forgotten Treasure: Lil’ Louis “Frequency” (Dance Mania – 1987)

I had to share this with you all today because I must say that I was pretty happy to find this in a digging excursion today! And for 1$. (mouahahahha!) I had a few Dance Mania records in my collection but this is definitely one of the better ones from …

Forgotten Treasure: JJ Fad “Supersonic”

JJ FAD which stood Just Jammin’ Fresh & Def‘ were the first female rap group to earn a Grammy nomination and have a platinum record. And to me “Supersonic” beats “Push It” by Salt N’ Pepa any day of the week. It’s pretty funny to think that at some point …

Forgotten Treasure: Dub Syndicate “Stoned Immaculate” (1992)

This is before my time but i’d like to start out by saying that this is absolutely essential listening for anyone into Dubstep these days. Yes, we know you know about the roots in DUB music, the name does kind of mention it y’know. But records like this are the …

Forgotten Treasure: Ze Rodrix “Esconderijo” (1976)

Eureka! That’s what any true hip-hop head yells out when he or she spots out a sample that he had been trying to uncover… It’s no secret that we have mad love for ALACLAIR ENSEMBLE, who have injected so much energy in a scene that needed it badly: Quebec hip-hop. …

Forgotten Treasure: Theo Parrish – “Heal Yourself and Move” (1998)

It’s late Sunday afternoon in San Francisco and I’m listening to some music that has been my Sunday staple for so long. I don’t know what it is about their music, but Theo Parrish and Omar-S are often my weekend companions. In that sense this track is certainly not ‘forgotten,’ …

Forgotten Treasure: Prince “Chelsea Rodgers”

It’s Prince Rogers Nelson‘s birthday and I thought that the least I could do is pick a track from his absolutely insane repertoire. At 53 years young, he is one of the last legends that we still have. “Chelsea Rodgers” was the 2nd single off the “Planet Earth” record released in …

Forgotten Treasure: Koop & Yukimi Nagano “Come To Me” (2001)

I have to admit that i’ve had sort of a crush on Yukimi Nagano for the past 4-5 years. She was a certain hot weirdo thing going on that I can’t deny! Most people will know her from her outstanding work with lo-fi electronica-ish group Little Dragon. But few know …
