Customer Reviews

Great instrumental hip hop

Both of the tracks on here are of the "experimental" or "instumental" hip hop variety that DJ Shadow found much success with. The beats on Nafe start out sounding a bit like Flipmode but are interupted by some processed vocals only to come back in full force sounding like early DJ Shadow at his funky best. No big 808 beats on this one but solid nonetheless and sounds good on a nice car stereo. Exodus does have some 808 sounding booming beats which progress nicely throughout the song until they are the main focus of the track at the end. The rest of the sampling/programming is tight and this track too could be a funky DJ Shadow b-side. I first listened to these tracks on a good car stereo driving through the countryside at about 85mph with the windows down and they made for a beautiful soundtrack. The samples that itunes chose are not really representative of the entire songs...especially in the case of Nafe. In short...if you liked Shadow even a little bit you'll find something to like here.

Aight but props for the Shadow references

I would say these are more of the Flying Lotus/Samiyam fare and about average for the trip/glitch/whatever hop around right now but I'd just like to applaud the previous reviewer for referencing DJ Shadow like...5 times. Although the new producers like Mux Mool aren't that much like Shadow these days we need to keep in mind who helped get us here and pine for the early 2000's when turntablism and sampling were still done and done well.

great collaboration

the erudite analysis of the previous commentators notwithstanding; the final analysis for me is whether a combination of sounds results in the impulse to push the ‘purchase’ button. for the music in question… no doubt!
