"As seen on the recent Noisey profile of the new documentary (noisey.vice.com/blog/stretch-bobbito-doc), Stretch & Bobbito's show on Columbia University's radio station played a remarkably influential role in the 90s hip-hop scene. Many artists have expressed this sentiment through songs and interviews, but none have gone quite so far as the OG Aborigines. The group's debut album Rice Krispy Treats is a tribute to the golden years of Stretch & Bobbito's time on the air, and is a testament to the long- lasting appeal of the show. With modern rhymes over vintage sounding instrumentals, Squires (the producer) and Rapswell (the MC) conjure up the feel of the best moments at WKCR. The albums 11 tracks feature neck snapping beats reminiscent of the legendary songs that were played on the station: Large Professor, DJ Premier, Buckwild, and Q-Tip all lend inspiration to these tracks, but Squires has a style of his own. Rapswell is likewise an accomplished wordsmith, and the duo adds on to the top notch material they put out this past July when they dropped the PEN PALS project on Chopped Herring Records. Rice Krispy Treats is an album that will give longtime fans of Stretch & Bobbito a nostalgic kick, and give people just learning about them a chance to catch glimpses of the 89Tec9 experience, through the various audio clips strewn throughout the LP..."

Two MC's from the South Side of Chicago, Rabiez and Sire Sensai met back in 1987 and by 1988, with a neighbourhood producer, DJ Slice, they began to lay down tracks together. They performed at local shows and high school talent shows.  Sire Sensai attended Calumet High School in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood of South Chicago and RaBieZ attended Luther South High School in Ashburn. They watched, at close hand, Common Sense and NoID come up, getting signed after puttin in a lot of hard work and local promo.  They were both alumni of Rabiez' High School, two years before Rabiez and watching them do their thing, with a wordwide audience, was an eye opener for the two local Chicago boys, as well as inspirational!! This project includes material from the first 2 vinyl from 1996 and 1997, as well as previously unheard bangers!!!!

NEXT DROP>>>>

THURSDAY 3rd DECEMBER

 

===================

 

 

 

 

Welcome back for the final release of the cycle - some DOPE unreleased/unleaked joints from the vaults of Red Hook Projects' own Su-Preme. Here we have the 1990-1991 demos by Da Last Future and Sunz of Man MC the artist  [now known as] Hell Razah. To get some background on this project and that early 90's BK flava, read this interview with our man on the boards Su-Preme......

 

Where did you come up man?

Born and raised in Redhook Projects Brooklyn ,NY

 

How/where did you meet razah?

Razah and I both are from Redhook Projects. Razah is the younger brother of one of Redhook's greatest recording artist / Mc's Tray Bag. As a kid Razah was always around listening to Tray bag and I making music and performing in Redhooks Coffey park.

 

What are your earliest memories of the culture?


I been around from the beginning, at a time when there was no such thing as "HIP HOP". I heard some of the first raps and heard some of the first scratches of a record on a turntable. I'm talking about 1979 King Tim III by The Fatback Band and The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" That was hip hop back then and still is to now!

 

Who did you learn beat making from?

Back in the day there was no one to really learn from. There was these boxes that had preset drum patterns that dj's would use at the park jams; that's where the term "beat box" or "beat machine" comes from. I would get behind the ropes at the jams to see how they used the beat machine..

 

What was yr first gear?

Casio VLl-tone keyboard and Synsonics drums. I got an after school job when I was 14 and saved up..

 

When did you first make a beat?

In the late 70's I got the Casio VL-tone keyboard and started play tunes over the preset beats. I was hooked!! Then Synsonic drums came out, I got that and started making beats. Tray Bag would come over and we would make songs and preform them at the park jams.

 

So how did you know Tray Bag, from around the way

We both lived the Redhook but in different buildings. We met in Jr high school. Tray bag was my first MC. I kind of borrowed him from his cousin Vandy C.

 

Was Vandy C from the neighbourhood too?

Vandy C is from Bedstuy, Roosevelt projects. He had a studio in his room in his mom's apartment - EVERYONE'S studio was in their bedroom [back then]. He was also a very big radio personality with his "Get busy or Get Lost" Hip Hop radio show on 91.5 which throught  the 80's. He was also Razah's cousin. 

 

How did you meet Vandy?

Tray Bag took me to meet Vandy at the Medgar Evers college radio station. Then I would go to Vandys place [in Bed Stuy] and watch him make beats. Vandy put Tray Bag on and I just learned by watching and listening.

 

So Vandy kinda too you under his wing?

Yeah, helped me learn the biz and what equipment to buy. I could call him and ask all kinds of questions about the music biz. Vandy is about 6 years older than me.

PF Cuttin - Fly Fishing Volume 3 DROPS THIS WEEK!!

On Limited Cassette [150 copies] + FREE Digital Download

 

 

 

KERWIN "SLEEK" YOUNG - BEATS, BREAKS & RHYMES [1991-1995]

 

including UNRELEASED PRODIGY [MOBB DEEP] SOLO TRACKS from 1992/3 + UNRELEASED SON OF BEZERK + MORE.....

 

 

Continued....

 

Kerwin worked out of Public Enemy's Long Island studio at 510 South Franklin Ave in Hempstead, 7 days a week; sleeping there several days at a time. He worked out of a room rented by Paul Shabazz. The spot was legendary. Back in 1984,  Charles Casseus had produced and recorded the Electro classic "Breakin In Space" there. The premises was owned by a dentist, a Dr Gant and Bomb Squad member Paul Shabazz was renting out rooms in the building. Kerwin first hooked up with Public Enemy in the summer of 1987. He had met them through two friends from the Hempstead N.A.A.C.P. Youth Council. He began making beats in 1988 and would bring tracks to Keith Shocklee & Eric Satler to listen to. He began assisting Eric in the studio in 1989 while working on "Fear of a Black Planet" & Ice Cube's "AmeriKKKaz Most Wanted". He started to work with Professor Griff in the summer of 1989, around the time of the "Fight The Power" video shoot. He went on to produce tracks on all Griff's solo albums and spent time down in Miami at Luther Campbell's studio.

He began production with his college friend Rich Simmons who had a small home set-up [MPC60 + Juno 106]. The two of them had a daily routine in the early 1990's. In the evenings they would be in the studio writing, mornings Kerwin would play ball in the gym at NYIT, before riding out to NYC to shop tracks. It was at various label offices, studio's and cutting houses that they would make valuable music industry contacts. When he was up at Rush Management HQ at 298 Elizabeth Street, he saw the young Havoc and Prodigy. He later ran into Prodigy again at Tong Kwon Chinese restaurant just opposite the Hempstead studio. Prodigy told him that they were shopping a deal at Island Records and Kerwin asked him to swing by the studio and check out his beats, which Prodigy did. This led to a meeting with 4th & B'dway where Kerwin was paid to produce 5 tracks for the debut Mobb Deep album "Juvenile Hell".

Kerwin worked on a bunch of high profile Hip Hop projects throughout the 90's. As well as all the Public Enemy releases, he was project coordinator (lit. Producer/Song-Writer) for Eric B & Rakim's "Don't Sweat The Technique" LP, he worked on the Gravediggaz demos,  was in the studio and helped out [uncredited] on a LOAD of Hip Hop records incl. sessions with Busta Rhymes ["Woo Hah"], Young Black Teenagers, Schoolly D, 2 Live Crew [while down South], Lauryn Hill [debut album] and many many more.  Later into the 90's he began writing for film and TV.

Outside of Hip Hop music, he had begun studying composition in 1994 and composed his first orchestral works
in 2001. His first classical piece to be performed was for a work entitled "Tales of a Fon Griot" at Jackson State University in Mississippi in 2008. He was a resident composer at Spelman College in 2008, before going back to school in 2009 at UMKC for a bachelor and masterdegrees in music composition.   

So Volume 2 of  "Beats, Breaks and Rhymes" includes more SICK joints from heads who passed through Kerwin's room at the Public Enemy Studio on Long Island, from the early to mid 90's. Props to the man himself for [after many months of pestering] taking a flight back down to Atlanta to locate the original DATS from the Dr Seus period. They sound ILLL!!!!!!!!!!   PEEP IT >>>>

COMIN SOON - FLY FISHING VOL 3 - MIXED BY PF CUTTIN + ARTWORK BY NOXER DEFENSE [NYC]

 



 

ALL SEPTEMBER RELEASES HAVE NOW BEEN SHIPPED....

 

 

 

 

Infinite Description consisted of  Lord Cyrus, Ill Natured Natural, and Bones from Baltimore,MD. They all attended Scott's Branch Elementary,  Old Court Middle, and Milford Mill High School, so had known each other for most of their lives. The group honed their skills in the legendary Tic Toc studios owned by Jay Funk and eventually released a single "Swinging Tight B/W Nasty Ass and Hip-Hop Style" in 1994. They had enough material for a album and the plan was to self release. They put their money together and self-financed 300 copies on wax and 300 tapes through Disc Makers. The local feedback was great and the record led on to more Baltimore Hip Hop releases over the next few years, kick starting a healthy Baltimore scene. We have included the 3 tracks from the original 12" as well as 5 more unheard, unreleased KILLERS. PEEP IT!!

A1 Bullets Don't Tickle

All three members are passionate Hiphoppas, Advocate’s of the Boom Bap sound and ready to leave their mark on our Hip Hop Kulture by demonstrating the essences of ill rhymes, flows, solid beats, sampling and Turntablism.

Ness Tee, founder, MC, writer and producer of Rukus started his career in the early days of Hip Hop music. He opened up shows for Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five back in 1980 and continued to rock the mic at concerts from Boston to Cali rolling with his boys Naughty By Nature and The Outlaws. Rukus, which was formed in 1995, also consisted of MC, Barry Pendergrass aka Focus who was the brother-in-law of Eddie Murphy's brother Vernon Lynch [who also appears on the original Rukus - Come Out 12" on background vocals]. Ness and Barry used to live on the same street in Montclair, NJ and sharing a mutual interest in the culture from way back, started to record. With some financial help from his family, Ness pressed up the 12" on his own Insignt label and it caught the attention of and was later licensed by a subsid of Casablanca records, Chocolate City Recs. Even though it was pressed twice the record is surprisingly rare. The crew still had the original reels, so when we contacted them about a deal to drop the tracks from the 12" and limited cassette version and 3 other unreleased tracks on Herring, they transfered them for us. The result is a banging EP of rare NJ flavas from 1994....


Ness Tee would like to send a strong shout out to Gran Quick [R.I.P.], DJ Disc from Jersey and DJ Paul Tee. This record is dedicated to "My Montclair, New Jersey Soldiers"....

Prodigy [Mobb Deep] appeared on a [unreleased] demo by Dr Seus from 1993 and also in a little-known group called Blitz. Those tracks were produced by Kerwin "Sleek" Young, who also produced half of Mobb Deep's debut album "Juvenile Hell". Read on...

 

 

Kerwin Young worked in Public Enemy's Long Island studio at 510 South Franklin Avenue in Hempstead from 1988. He did production on all of Professor Griff's solo albums and his magic wand [pause] has touched many a Bomb Squad production. In 1993 he produced a demo by a cat called Dr Seus which made it into the Source Unsigned Hype section and he also produced half of Mobb Deep's debut album "Juvenile Hell". So we hit him up....

 

 

HERE'S THE FIRST PART OF THE STORY:

Kerwin "Sleek" Young is steeped in Hip Hop flava. Born in 1970, Sleek grew up in Rockaway, Queens. At the age of 9 his family moved to Roosevelt, Long Island. The son of a Julliard-trained trombonest, he was exposed to music from birth. He took up alto sax at school and was in numerous of his junior school bands. But it was through his brother, ten years his senior, that he discovered early Hip Hop music and culture. His brother went to a jam in the Bronx in 1977 where Herc's Herculoids were playing and he came back with a tape! That was one of the first sparks that ignited his interest in Hip Hop. By 1978 he was making 8-track pause button mixes and needle drop mixes. By 1982 he was selling pause button mix tapes at school and by 84 he started DJ'ing out. He was doing house parties with Darryl Spivey in St Albans and Springfield Gardens in Queens that year and got a job spinning at the Sprectrum Cafe in East Meadow, LI in August of 1988. But it might've been through his brother dating Chuck D's sister that he got his break in the biz....

Chopped Herring Recs presents DJ Woody - 'Fly Fishing'

 

Chopped Herring Records was founded back in 2001. The same year DJ Woody became the first European DJ to win the International Turntablist Federation World Championships. At that time Herring HQ was located in Manchester, a 40 minute drive through Lancashire to Woody's hometown of Burnley. Chopped Herring Records' owner Pro Celebrity Golf and Woody had crossed paths on numerous times spinnin' in Manchester and the North West of England during the 90's, so it only seems natural (like the migration of Herring in the Baltic Sea) that  C.H Recs and DJ Woody should 'hook up' for a mix at some point. 'Fly Fishing', a selection of released and unreleased tracks on Chopped Herring Records, mixed by DJ Woody is something we've been thinking about for some time. Since the Herring catalogue has grown dramatically in the last couple of years it seemed an appropriate time to get in touch with one of the greatest DJ's to ever do it to de-bone some Herring fillets in his inimitable, flavasome way. Chopped Herring Records and DJ Woody proudly present 'Fly Fishing'..
