CAURAL / JQAM SPLIT 7″ ORG7011 VINYL/DIGITAL AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE 2/15/11!!





SIDE A – CAURAL “Sorry Underground Hip Hop Happened 10 Years Ago (For Regan)
———-

Caural of Mush Records and Chocolate Industries fame returns with a historical ode to “Golden Era” Hip Hop titled “Sorry, Underground Hip Hop Happened 10 Years Ago (For Regan)”. Taking over 450 samples of the word “YO” from his collection of rap albums (either alone or with snares, kicks, hi-hats, chords and bass tones),Caural builds the piece bar by bar – and beat by beat! – producing a rhythmic experience of memory overload for Hip Hop heads. Ras G utilized this track in his Beat Soup Vol 1 mix CD, and it has laced the sets of many other producers in the exploding
L.A. beat scene.


SIDE B – JQAM “Another Way Home”
———-

John Quincy Adding Machine is the 21st century Menudo and isn’t afraid of anything. Born in 1978, he is an inveterate procrastinator and has yet to put his reportedly large body of work in motion. JQAM currently resides in the People’s Republic of China and digs out of the vaults from 2003 “Another Way Home” a lush chop shop glitch masterpiece.

For ALL the new school future beat scene fans! Reminiscent of Prefuse 73, Savath & Savalas, Dabrye, ElekTro4, Sixtoo and at the sametime future forward like Flying Lotus, Take, Ras G, Dizz1 & Harmonic 313.

Roane Namuh – OKhandsignal vinyl LP/Digital album release 1/20/11

IT’S OFFICIAL PORTLAND’S OWN ROANE NAMUH DEBUT ALBUM AVAILABLE ON VINYL LP AND DIGITAL WORLDWIDE 1/20/11!

Roane Namuh (aka DJ Roane), a 23 year old native of Portland, OR graces us, and the world, with his take on laid back instrumental boom bap hip-hop with his debut opus, “OKhandsignal”, a 12 track vinyl voyage. The vinyl album is accompanied, via dropcard, by a complete 31 track mixed digital version which is included free with every vinyl purchase! If you’re seeking the digital only version, it will be available at every major global digital outlet.

Roane’s production format is a simple yet proven method, old records & the Akai MPC2000XL. Every sound, texture and frequency used is taken from vinyl dug out from record store bins by Roane himself. “OKhandsignal” shows a student’s respect to the masters of golden era hip-hop production. However, upon the first play, it will be apparent that Roane has developed his own unique style and his own mastery of the beat.

The complete 31 track digital album is ‘freeqwenced’ (Roane terminology for his style of production) to flow as if it were one of his strictly vinyl DJ mixes, never leaving you out of motion or off the beat. The vinyl album features 11 selected tracks plus a bonus jam exclusive to the vinyl. It’s a very intimate hands-on process from him to you, the listener, through the time-honored tradition of digging in the crates and being knowledgable about the music that came before him and helped shape his own. The end result is a unique style of sound collaging bred through exposure to the gifted elders of Portland hip hop and his years of working at 360 Vinyl, Portland’s hip hop/electronic/soul vinyl mecca!
