MUSIC: J-ZONE RELEASES HIS INSTRUMENTALS CALLED “THE HEADBAND YEARS”

Producer/DJ/MC virtuoso J-Zone releases his collection of instrumentals on his bandcamp page called “The Headband Years”.

“When I returned to music in 2013 after a four year hiatus, I promised myself I’d reinvent and not perform, rehash or make Part 2s of my back catalog. I’d make stuff available digitally for those who missed it the first time around and move on. I got a few requests for some of my old instrumentals, so I went through what’s been sitting in my basement for over a decade. Whichever instrumental records I still had (most are long out of print or were destroyed), old DATs (which are a bitch to transfer), files (Celph Titled had to send me a few joints I didn’t have), etc… I salvaged what I could.

As for the selection, it’s one part specific requests, one part popularity, one part availability, one part “I thought this was dope, but nobody remembers it.” Yes, there are some omissions (notably some of the Music For Tu Madre and A Bottle of Whup Assstuff). Anything recorded prior to 2004 was never in file form and many of those masters deteriorated over time or the instrumental wax was used for shows, so it’s beat to shit. (You’ll hear a skip or two and some crackle on a few of these.)

Besides the instrumentals for a lot of my solo records, I’ve included beats I made for Al-Shid, H.U.G., Tame One, Cage, RA The Rugged Man, The Juggaknots, Sadat Xand others.

Putting this together was tedious, but for the completist, the lover of instrumentals and those who got rid of all their records, I figured it should at least be available. No represses, no distribution on iTunes, etc., no promotion, no pomp and circumstance. Just 70 tracks from my headband era. Enjoy.”

FACT MAGAZINE INTERVIEWS DJ KUTMAH – “THE BIRTH OF THE LA BEAT SCENE”

Our good friend Kutmah, a once main staple of the LA Beat Scene who now lives in London (due to some his legal status) gets interviewed by Fact Magazine. Kutmah talks about his history coming up in LA, his club ‘Sketchbook’, & the history of the LA Beat Scene.

Peep some excerpt of the interview below & read the rest here: http://www.factmag.com/2013/04/03/prince-came-to-my-club-the-birth-of-l-a-beat-scene-as-told-by-kutmah/

Would it be fair to say that all you guys – Tom, Ras, Nobody etc… – shared this common thing where you liked hip-hop but didn’t always dig the MCs?

“For me it was one of those things where I wanted to mix whenever I wanted to mix, I didn’t want to have to wait for the hook to come in to start mixing. When you have the instrumental you can dive in, it’s more fun to play with. You can ignore certain things as long as it’s still in time or whatever, which half the time I wasn’t, so I’d just dive in. It was more fun, and I think that’s partly why I got into instrumentals more. I wasn’t feeling the MC and I didn’t want to have to wait for the hook.”

“Actually I just thought of something that’s really important. There was this club called JuJu that Sacred played at, with Rome and Al Jackson. It was in Leimert Park, which is hood as fuck, and it was just a Saturday night party. No alcohol but they’d make their own drinks with ginger and stuff like that. It was the kind of place where they would play a Dilla beat, Jay Dee beat back then, for like four minutes and everyone was cool. No one listened with their ears or eyes, people were just vibing out, everyone was just… it was the best fucking vibe of any night I’ve been to, still not been beat. Sacred was the first one to play Dwele. He went and found this track, I can’t remember which one, right around the time we’d first heard of Dwele after Carlos Nino had played him on his radio show. So we’d all heard this song and Sacred goes and presses up this shit on 12”, then plays it the next Saturday! He was that dude. He’s got a sick jazz collection too.”

“He now works in this store called Frequency, probably the only record store in Los Feliz. Juju was the night, man. The hottest girls you’ve ever seen in your life, everybody was cool as fuck, everyone smoking weed. There was no bullshit, the best fucking vibe. I’m a mixed race kid and it was nice to not feel… if you go to a black club you feel the difference. And I went to this and I didn’t feel shit there. It was one of those things, where you didn’t know how you were going to be treated you know?”

 We talked about finding weird Russian new wave while digging the crates in northern Europe, hearing Dr. Dre spin on seminal LA hip-hop station KDAY back in 1985, how Prince always had the illest beats, flipping a sample until it’s unrecognizable, Pete Rock sending him beat recordings at seven in the morning, and the life and times of J Dilla.”

Did you have anyone you looked up to as a kid as far as music went?

My neighbor John. He was a little older and had a DJ set-up also. He would show me all the records and how DJs were mixing and scratching. John’s best friend back then was this guy Chris Cut who later changed his name to Peanut Butter Wolf. I went to school with Peanut Butter Wolf’s younger sister, Amy. So we would go to Amy’s house to hang out and whenever Peanut Butter Wolf wasn’t home, I would go through his records to see what he had. I used to write down artists and songs and then go to the record stores to find these songs [laughs].

What was the musical climate like in your household when you were growing up?

Growing up, my parents used to play a lot of the old fashioned stuff like ABBA and Disco stuff like Donna Summer. I had neighbors though that would bump Rick James and Sugar Hill Gang. We used to play basketball outside of their house and they would always have the boombox outside playing this stuff. So I got my early musical taste from those older cats.

VIDEO PREVIEW: “GET LIVE WITH IT” (BTS VIDEO) J-DILLA x J.ROCC x RHETTMATIC

February is what we like to call “Dilla Month” in honor of the birthday & death anniversary of the one of the greatest (if not THEE greatest) music producer of all time….the one & only James Dewitt Yancey, better known to the world as the legendary J-Dilla. He was born in Detroit on February 7th, 1973 and passed away in Los Angeles on February 10th, 2006 due to complications to Lupus, a few days after his 33rd birthday & the release of his final opus, “Donuts”.

J.Rocc & Rhettmatic both have a special bond with Dilla. J was part of the circle of close friends when Dilla moved to Los Angeles, that included Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf, & Egon. J.Rocc is also the 3rd member of Jaylib, the collabo group of J-Dilla & Madlib. Rhettmatic eventually also became a part of Dilla’s LA’s circle of friends. Dilla personally asked Rhett to be his tour DJ for his European Tour (which actually turned out to be Dilla’s last tour ever) when J wasn’t available.

Both J & Rhett have done personal tribute mixes to their fallen friend over the years, but haven’t recently done one in a while….till now. This time, they decided to make another Dilla Tribute Mix….together. They basically planned to record an impromptu, inprovised 2×4 (2 person/4 turntables) mix…nothing pre-planned, video archive the live session, see what happens, pick the best part of the mix, & release it to the world to share.

This particular video footage was all recorded in one night with 2 separate GoPro cameras just to document the impromptu recording session between J & Rhett, as they improvise on the spot, weaving in & out of songs with blends & cuts. This is a visual preview of the free mix “Get Live With It”, that will be sharing with the world on February 10th, 2015.

This Audio/Visual Recording is dedicated to the loving memory of James Dewitt Yancey aka Jay Dee aka J-Dilla….We miss you.
