Slum Village - Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1 [The Samples]

"This sh.. it's for.... It's Fantastic, neva test the "S", It's Fan-Tas-Tic" With These exerpts from the Opening Track from Slum Village's Fan-Tas-Tic Vol. 1, the masses were introduced to trio who had a sound unqiue to them at a time when that meant something. Staying on point (all the time Phife), Slum Village's debut album takes the listener into hold you down fort in the D (Conant Gardens, to be specific) and what goes down in Detriot. They Had the sound of what A Tribe Called Quest seemed to progressing towards (or looking for), but the subject matter had calling card common amongst Hip-Hop: Women, Wealth, and Breaking rules that have been there for quite some time. But the focus of this post is the other-wordly soundscape that these cats operate within. Credit for this soundscape is due to Jay Dee (AKA J Dilla), a young producer at the time who worked with Tribe and Pharcyde on there albums and would soon go on to reach the pantheons of Hip-Hop Pproducers (People, no easy feat for one attain). Jay Dee had a sound that so much soul with drums NOBODY could replicate and he seemed to create a new sound altogether that would have the hip-hop scene buzzing over Jay Dee and Slum Village with their unique sound. This album has a sparse, sort drown out sound drums that hit and the Dilla's production sounds as if they cut off the album in a sessions that could last for days. The samples on the album range from obsceure Soul tracks to the obvious to Jazz tracks that may raise your eye a bit or two.


Look, Dilla had beats to go (Umm... Pun Intended/Not Intended (Choice Is Yours)), so I hope you, the People, appreciate the set Kevin Nottingham of Kevin!Nottingham: This Is Real Hip Hop, and, I (proper english on the blog, now you seen it all), put together. Big Ups to Kevin for setting up the stuff to make this look so good.

It's interesting to see just how permeant digital memory has become in our every day lives. It seems like everywhere I turn, I see something with a card slot or USB port, lol. I guess it makes sense though, considering how inexpensive memory has become as of late...

Ahhh... who am I to complain. I can't make it through a single day without my R4 / R4i!
