Dusted Off pt7: Chet Baker Documentary

I haven't done a Dusted Off post in almost two years but I found it fitting to do this one as myself and some of the heads in our Jazz Jousters Facebook group are flipping Chet's 'Almost blue' Classic. This will be released this weekend (June 1st) on the Millennium Jazz Bandcamp under the name of The Jazz Jousters. If you know your Jazzhop you may even recognise some of the many names of international Hip Hoppers that are Jousting with us.

Anyway back to the doc ..I'll confess that before starting the above project I didn't know half as much about the great Chet Baker as I do now. You may find this to be quite deep or possibly very inspirational. We shall see...

R.I.P Chesney Henry "Chet" Baker, Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988)

Spee Six Nine ft Efeks & Guilty Simpson - Heavyweights

Have to say I've never heard of Spee Six Nine before and was simply influenced by seeing Efeks (who just posted it on Fbk) and Guitly Simpson. It was also good to see production was by young Jaisu, who I knew of back in my Louis Deen Beat Battle days (Kosyne/LDBB are you lot still active?). Anyway, this is a good track of straight spitting and no doubt I'll remember the name like 'Spee Six Nine' if and when I come across it again!

Ishkan - Confluent Des Presages

Big up to my Sistren Gyspy Eyes for putting me on to this one as she is continuiously spreading the love and sharing/promoting music from artists all over the globe. This time she was telling me about Ishkan from Canada who comes with a nice base driven Jazzhop number. I'll keep my ears out for this brotha in future as I'm liking what I'm hearing!

Camp America - Intuition & Dreams

Something very different here. I actually went and listened to the 'Powerskills' track after Savvy aka Asaviour posted it up on Facebook and the design of the page took me back some years and made me think of thing like Amstrad or Atari. Once you hear some of Camp America's music you kind of get the vibe via audio as well. I can't say this whole LP is for me, but it found me at a time when I wanted to hear something completely different. That said, you can't ignore the skills that have gone into making this project and the quality of the artists involved.

Root Down Tribute to MCA by Conan Liquid

Words by Conan Liquid...

For all those who know me personally, you know that I started out as a Hip Hop DJ and producer in the mid 80s. The Beastie Boys were a massive influence on me as a DJ, a person, producer and writer. With the untimely death of MCA last week I wanted to pay tribute in the only way I know how. Remix some old Beastie Boys. Here is the first of my tributes to MCA and a welcome return to my Hip Hop roots. Downloadable for those who want to play it out or PLAY IT LOUD.

Diligent Fingers - Therapy Sessions

If you don't know about Diligent Fingers's productions already then you have a lot of catching up to do and will most definitely have a good time doing it. This small batch of beats are just some of the instrumentals that Dil made while getting involved with The Beat Inn's weekly Therapy Chops session. You can even find a video or two of Dil talking you through the process of how some of these tracks were made. For now though, just sit back and enjoy the sounds of a very talented producer.

MoSiK - Blueberry Hill

I had never heard of 'MoSik' until this track. I was kind of lost in terms of info as there isn't much detail in the description section of this video, so I went to his Youtube home page and found he had recently featured on the BBC Asian Network where he battled (Freeza) on the 'Hype On The Mic' segment well as drop a lot of information about himself via his lyrics or questions put to him.

I'm listening to this as I type, but it sounds like he's winning this battle...

Gadget - Mr Yancey Tribute EP - FREE DOWNLOAD

"For years I've said to myself I should do a little something and pay homage to the big man whom I found so inspirational, so this year *2012* I did. This was done over a five day period between commitments. I just switched on the mic, vibed out and recorded some old, new and unheard lyrics as well as some on the spot freestyles and hooks. I hope you can "get down" with it!" - Gadget Millennium Jazz Music 2012 Recorded, mixed, mastered and vocals by Gadget
