It is over 20 years since the Pharcyde dropped their ground breaking classic debut on us and now they are back with a major tour throughout Europe. Well it’s not all of them, but Slimkid3 and Fatlip will be there with J Swift and L.A.Jay alongside them.
Many of us grew up with Tone Loc providing the soundtrack of our adolescence. With much loved hits like "Wild Thing" under his belt, Tone Loc solidified his place in party-music history. Now why would renowned Baltimore DJ Aaron LaCrate want to change something that seems so right? Because my friends, change (especially when Aaron LaCrate is involved) is a good thing.
Delicious Vinyl is proud to release the debut single by Illa J - "We Here" b/w "R U Listenin" featuring Guilty Simpson. Both tracks are produced by the legendary late producer Jay Dee (aka J Dilla), Illa J's older brother. This is the first single from forthcoming Yancey Boys LP.
John "Illa J" Yancey, younger brother of late great genius producer James Yancey (aka Jay Dee aka J Dilla), is currently completing his debut album for Delicious Vinyl. With the multi-talented Illa J rhyming and singing over a treasure trove of previously untouched Jay Dee gems, the project represents both a full-circle collaboration and a whole new beginning in the story of the musically exceptional Yancey brothers.
On Delicious Vinyl’s Rmxxology, indie dance-darlings Hot Chip remix “Passin’ Me By”, the much-loved tale of unrequited longing. The original track is classic 90’s hip-hop from The Pharcyde, from their legendary album Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde.
It's been six years since Peaches grabbed our attention with her tangy sexual explosion entitled "F*ck The Pain Away". She's back with another raunchy track that is a certified booty shaker. As part of Delicious Vinyl's Rmxxology, Peaches has rehashed Tone Loc's classic "Wild Thing" with an updated club flavour. The track tells the story of a hot sweaty rendezvous in a sauna.
Go back to the future with Delicious Vinyl Rmxxology, an all-new, 15-track album featuring classic tracks by Young MC, The Pharcyde, Masta Ace, The Brand New Heavies and Fatlip re-imagined by artists including Peaches, Hot Chip and Eminem. The first two singles from the album are already popular: pioneering electro goddess Peaches' sizzling update of Tone Loc's immortal "Wild Thing" and Aaron LaCrate and Debonair Samir's gutter-bumping Baltimore blast of Young MC's "Know How".
Fatlip (from the Pharcyde) is coming out with a new album this Tuesday called "The Loneliest Punk". Anyone here a fan of the Pharcyde? This album is going to be tight!! It has Chali Tuna from Jurassic 5 as well as Shock G & Humpty Hump of Digital Underground. As well as this Spike Jonez did a documentary called "What's Up Fatlip?" - which is hilarious! I've been into Fatlip and Delicious Vinyl for a while now and can't wait to hear this. Check out itunes.
