Planet Asia – 1984 (Video)

Loving this Evidence produced track from Planet Asia. There is beauty in the subtlety of sound here. I love the guitar, the vocal sample, and the sound scape in general. It’s engaging but it lets Asia demonstrate is supreme lyricism and delivery. There aren’t too many who can match this man’s career and talent.

He’s got another heater coming called Rule Of Thirds which is dropping on October 29th. You aren’t going to want to miss that!

Evidence – Taylor Made Suit (Video)

Evidence lets loose another video single from his album, Unlearning, Vol 1. This is one of my favorite cuts from the album as it has a touch of angst and darkness that is in part made possible by the one and only V Don and his production talents. The production style really suits Evidence which is scant on drums but heavy on depth. The way the guitar lends itself for Evidence to drop the truth of his life an perspective.

Note:

I really want to close out 2013, but I can not do so without cranking out one more review for a very dope album.  The first thing heads will notice about the album Daes & Times is the production credits.  There are some heavyweight names creating beats for One Dae.  When listeners see names like Statik Selektah, Marco Polo, Analogic, Domingo, and M-Phazes, they are bound to pay attention.  But as the man, Mike Zoot once said “a wack rhymer can kill a raw beat”.  In this case the opposite is true: One Dae accentuates what these beatsmiths provide making this album memorable.
