Bob James Interview + Masta Ace

December 13th, 2009

Bob James is one of the key players when it comes to the musical evolution of hip hop. I found a Red Bull Music Academy based interview where Bob himself shares his thoughts about his career.

The song on 38:05, “El Verano” by Bob James… Wow, just listen to it (also on Spotify).

Some of y’all probably noticed that “El Verano” is sampled i.e. for Masta Ace - N.Y. Confidential:

I.N.I. - Fakin' Jax

December 5th, 2009

I.N.I., a group backed up by Pete Rock, had an album called “Center of Attention” in their hands in 1995. They managed to release a single & video in 1996, but due to label issues the album didn’t officially come out until 2003.

The whole album has been a regular guest in my stereo thru the years. On the single “Fakin’ Jax”, I really like the way Pete brought some different groove to the widely used “Honey Drippers” drum break.
