M-Dot and Effiscienz? Yes, please! M-Dot is legit at the peak of his game and Effiscienz is THE label right now. It has an outstanding habit of dropping outstanding albums every year. And you know what it did a week or so ago? It dropped the appropriate titled, Out Of Nowhere, that features some of the best doing it right now. DJ Brans on the boards for this one which gives this cut certified status. Enjoy the duo’s music as they run through Paris like nobody’s business.
I am not up on Union Blak but the project is put out by the Effiscienz camp which has been on a roll as of late (ie Fel Sweetenberg’s latest album). Street English is a nice track that has a throwback appeal ala Gangstarr in the mid 90s and it happens to be the title track for the album dropping on February 9th.
Unbeknownst to me, the team at Effiscienz was holding a remix competition for producers to flip an original song from Fel Sweetenberg’s album, The Invisible Garden. Well guess who came thru as the winner? It should come as no surprise that oft-featured producer, Cool FD stole the show by remixing the Dirt Platoon featured track, The End Of The Book.
It’s been a loooong minute since I have heard new music from Fel Sweetenberg, but I loved his last album, The Sophmore Jinx. It was one of the first albums I reviewed back in 2010. This track make it appear that he took no days off as it’s just as, if not better, than his earlier material. Some of that credit probably needs to be given to boom bap specialist, DJ Brans for lacing that beat.
