Wax Poetics Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Bones & Beeker are Anthony Newes and BK-One, who off the back of their 2015 debut album, have let loose some of their friends to create Inside A Different Mind. Featuring remixes from big names like Cut Chemist, Brother Ali, and Open Mike Eagle, the EP is not only a celebration of the Bones & Beeker originals, but of hip hop itself.
Now I didn’t know this before, but it turns out that the the reason that blaxploitation pastiche Black Dynamite sounds so authentic is that its soundtrack was pulled from the very same archives of 70’s library music as the film’s forebears used. Full credit to David Hollander for his curatorial efforts. LP on Wax Poetics.
Why not sit down and play the sample-spotting game with Adrian Younge’s album Something About April? You might recognise catchy fragments used elsewhere by Jay-Z, 50 Cent or DJ Premier, a fact that indicates the kind of psychedelic swinging soul that Younge produces. This is the deluxe, limited LP reissue of the album, on Linear Labs.
