re-up: while the city sleeps and some more

October 5, 2008

re-upped by request – requested from a man with taste, quite obviously. mc 900 feet jesus‘ the city sleeps. you get it here. and i couldn’t resist adding a little bonus.

some more?

while we’re on cd-singles, and because i stumbled over it just lately and well, i haven’t heard it for while really loud on a good system and boy oh boy, what a bass – and then there is this remix on it by a certain david z done at the paisley park studios, minneapolis. well, just enjoy neneh cherry‘s i’ve got you under my skin. and the video i posted a while back here.

and while we’re getting into hip hop territory i came across this post on tuttsi fruttsi icecream (hey, already the name makes me like this blog) – just in case you want some more gucci crew II.

and then we have a premiere on this blog: it is the first time a promotional email works! i don’t really know why i have received it in the first place, but then i did find on the page of molemen.com my old favourites all natural, and you can download a mixtape, called unlikely villain by decay for free which i quite enjoy and then i just discussed the other day that it is interesting how little hip hop we listen to these days compared to, you know, when we were less old. so see it as my little contribution to bring some hip hop back into your ears. just too bad there is no pre-listening possibility for the ill’s manic depressive music-album. and shouldn’t that be an album published on wordsound, anyway?

to round things off nicely, and because i’m conviced we all need some more sissy-ness in our lives, here the link to: dre skull’s sissy bounce mix. yep, you might guess right: booty for us sisters, but not only. believe me, doing it the sissy way just gives your booty that extra swing when shaken! yeah! this comes via earplug.

and then to give you a picture here one of sissy nobby. me likes, as m used to say… (source)

so – now you should have enough new beats to listen to before we dive again into older sounds…

et hop! everyone has a secret…

…mine is the fire when the city sleeps.

slowly we move into somewhat darker territory – but i wanted to start completly different:

yeah, there is jazzy hip hop. usually that means a lot of jazz samples and a kind of earthy and/or nostalgic feel. oh, and miles davis made a hip hop record (although it has been finished after he passed away).

and then there is mc 900 ft jesus. i always thought he must have an education as jazz musician – although i can not really pinpoint down why – something to do with his, eerr, music sensibility, i guess (and with the music, of course). all while inventing somehow his own world – a strange world, sure. especially in hip hop i am attracted to these artists which create through their music and/or lyrics their own unique world – and mc 900 ft jesus certainly does this. he made three records which are all somewhat different – but all three of them are strange in a fascinating way (well, the first one is somewhat less interesting). music with a slightly eery feel and rather mad lyrics – yes, exactly my cup of tea. so as an introduction to his world here the cd-single to his great song the city sleeps. you get the radio edit, the vocal remix, the clarinet remix, and an instrumental version. ripped as mp3’s @224. get it here.

what he does now i do not know – there have been rumours on the net that he might become activ as mc 900 ft jesus again – but proof is still outstanding. if anybody knows more – drop me a line.

and now: welcome to his dream!

BONUS: yes, welcome. welcome to my dream that album is actually called. get it here. enjoy!

UPDATE: just goes to show that i should do better research… sigh. for everybody too lazy looking at the comments: krab klaw kock (aaahhh, that alias is really making me think in interesting directions) informs us that all his albums are up on http://puppystrangler.blogspot.com/search/label/Mc%20900%20ft%20Jesus.

thank you! and i very much recommend one step ahead of the spider – i do find that album somewhat more psychedelic and trippy – and yes, one of the most, hm, remarkable? daring? cool? opener for a record…
