The Heretics - Patterns Of Chaos


The Heretics - Patterns Of Chaos

The meeting of The Iconoclast and Mikey Bingo was merely by chance, but it was their mutual respect for hip-hop which lead to the formation of The Heretics. Now, after years of recording at The Wastelands and finding a distinctive, raw sound, The Heretics are ready to be unleashed. Musically they can be described as a form of hardcore, lyrical hip-hop that stays true to the boom bap sound of times past. With an impressive amassment of songs recorded, The Heretics are now primed and ready to launch an all out assault that will establish them in the Hip-Hop genre.

Here is what they have to say about their new release. "Finally, here it is. This is the download link for Patterns of Chaos. It is a 19 track album that we are releasing for free. All we ask is that if you enjoy it, spread the word. Forward the link on, post it on forums you may be a part of, put it on torrent sites or limewire, burn cd's and give them away, anything to help the movement. A lot of hard work went into this album and its hard to give it away for free but with all of your help, it will be a worthy investment."

Tracklisting:

01. Patterns Of Chaos (Intro)
02. Most High Freestyle
03. Natural Selection
04. I'll Hurt You Freestyle
05. P.S.A. Freestyle Ft Devilz Speciez

DJ ReMike - Stetsasonic: The Original Hip Hop Band


DJ ReMike - Stetsasonic: The Original Hip Hop Band

Now it's time for the second release of S.O.U.L.'s Mixtape Project. This one is a tribute to Stetsasonic by DJ ReMike. This is what he had to say about the mixtape:

Stetsasonic was a hip hop group that dropped 3 albums in the mid to late 80s (around the same time as Run-DMC was active). They're considered to be the first hip hop live band. After the group folded, heir frontman, Daddy-O went on to drop a solo debut and become a very in-demand producer, and their DJ Prince Paul became a part of reknowned hip hop group De La Soul. My reason for dropping this mixtape was that I felt that Stetsasonic's was forgotten and to bring it to the light. The project is meant to bring back the real original mixtapes & real mix DJ's.

01. Hip Hop Band Intro
02. Showtime
03. Just Say Stet
04. So Let the Fun Begin
05. Gyrlz

20. My Rhyme
21. A.F.R.I.C.A (Norman Cook Remix)/Outro
22. The Problemaddicts - What It Seems (Remix Produced By DJ ReMike)(Bonus Track)

Ragga Muffin Rascalz - Really Livin' (1st Version)


Ragga Muffin Rascalz - Really Livin' (1st Version)

The Ragga Muffin Rascals of Vancouver, B.C. was formed in 1989 and consisted of MCs Red-1 and Misfit, and DJ Kemo. This debut release "Really Livin" hit the streets in 1992 on Calabash Records. The album was then re-mastered and then released on Sony Music Canada the following year, and the name Ragga Muffin Rascalz was changed to simply Rascalz. This album is a Canadian gem. Out of print and extremely rare... a must have.

Doo Wop & Da Bounce Squad - Noo Trybe Bootleg Summer Sampler '94


Taken From Robbie's Unkut Doo Wop Interview:

What was happening leading up to the ‘95 Live tape?

Before that, I was known as having the Bounce Squad, which is a group of unknown MC’s I put together. We were really becoming known for our intros – we always did catchy concepts. Every tape I put out from ’93 up to right when ’95 came in was with the Bounce Squad. That’s what everybody was really looking forward to – what the Bounce Squad were gonna do next on the intro. But then I got a record deal with Virgin Records around Fall of ’94, and that’s when everything just went down the drain with the Bounce Squad because it just caused all kind of problems. The label wanted us to move to LA for like a year to record the album…as good as that sounds to some people, after we agreed and we signed the deal, THEN they told us about this ‘moving to LA’ thing. We felt we was gonna lose the streets in New York, because every month it was like anticipation for the next Bounce Squad intro. We figured like, ‘We’re gonna record an album, but we’re gonna lose the streets. So what good is the album gonna do?’ So back and forth we went with the label and we asked for a release. We didn’t want to do the deal anymore. They said, ‘OK, we’ll give you a release but we gotta keep Snagglepuss, which was like our Method Man. Like the way Method Man is to the Wu. They told me he agreed to it! Behind my back, he agreed to staying with them and moving to LA to doing a solo album! He was a key component in the intros, so it was like, ‘What the hell is this?’ So that caused all kinds of problems where, ‘How we gonna do these intros and not have somebody that everybody looks forward to? His punch-lines and his character…man, this is crazy’. So we took a little break.

So how did you get the Virgin deal? I only ever saw the 12”.

‘The Bounce Master’ and ‘Hit ‘Em In The Head’. That’s what actually got me the deal with Virgin. What it was, they just signed me and they signed The Luniz at the same time. I was in the process of waiting for my advance and all that to come in, and the A&R calls me and goes, ‘Yo, don’t you have a crew of MC’s called the Bounce Squad?’ Somebody put him up on it I guess – after he signed me. He was like, ‘Can we add two to the deal? We want Uneek and Snagglepuss’. Like a dick, not knowing the business, I added them to my deal. I was being cool to my peoples, but that was bad business. They shoulda got separate deals! It was a good thing that I didn’t fuck with ‘em, ‘cos they were doin’ shiesty stuff from the jump, right from the door.
