Producer of the Week : Danger Mouse


Brian Joseph Burton, better known by moniker Danger Mouse, is part of eccentric Hip Hop/Soul/Alternative duo Gnarls Barkley. Consisting of him and his partner Cee-Lo Green known from Atlanta based musical collectives Goodie Mob and The Dungeon Family. Which also include eclectic Rap duo Outkast, production/songwriting team Organized Noize, R&B singer Joi, and others. Even though Mouses’ music consist of mostly Hip Hop he is also known for his work in other genres such as trip hop , electronica , and Alternative . Most of these projects you can find with his work with groups such as Gorrilaz ,The Black Keys , and Danger Doom ( Collective DangerMouse and Rapper/Producer MF Doom). Already a DJ and known by his other moniker Pelican City in Electronica muisc Mouses' fame came from Hybrid remix The Grey Album . With samples from the beatles white album and vocals from Jay-Z’s Black album , Mouse creates a savvy mix of Jay-Z’s sophisticated lyrics mashed with the early rock sound of The beatles thus making it Classic in its own right. Persoanlly my favorite work of the producer is on his latest release with Gnarls Barkley The odd couple ( the TV show which the name is based ,also happens to be part of my late night rounite while on the MP ) . The album serves as a canvas to both Mouses' and Cee-Lo’s artistic aound and image . The Album is a gumbo consisting of pop sounds from the 50’s and 60’s with a dash of dub , seasoned with slowed down samples Hip Hop drums and mixed with a wooden lattle of Hip Hop drums creating a brand new flavor which I can safely say can be found amgonst different Generes in the forever expanding menu of Hip Hop. Danger Mouse is Truly a Pionner of our Music , culture , and Time.

Good Muisc The Roots - Rising Up



Something Great for your soul

I have been a fan since Brooklyn Babylon
Black Thought is one of the last best MC's Left
Chrisette Michelle is Gorgeous and has such a distinct sound like an Eryaka Badu and Jill Scott

And Wale is truly ( now listen ) A breath of fresh air in a time were so called Conscience Rap / Hipster Hop (and who ever embraces that term is an embarrassment not only to the culture but also to themselves if they consider themselves a true child of a Lifestyle that so many before us has sacrificed their own so we can not be tied down to only a certain sound or genre of OUR OWN MUSIC.)

Anyway its a Great Record Im glad that in this day and age we still have something real to feel

Producer of the week ( Im like 2 weeks late but please dont rush me with all your hate comments Gessh ) - Pete Rock


Pete Rock (born Peter Phillips, June 21, 1970[1] in Bronx, New York) is an American hip hop DJ, producer and rapper, of Jamaican descent. He rose to prominence in the early '90s as one half of the critically acclaimed group Pete Rock & CL Smooth. After the duo went their separate ways, Rock continued with a [2] solo career that has garnered him worldwide respect, if little in the way of mainstream success. Rock played a major role in the merging of elements from jazz into hip hop music, along with Stetsasonic, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and Gang Starr. Considered one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time[3][4][5], he is often mentioned alongside DJ Premier, and RZA, as one of the mainstays of 1990s East Coast hip hop production. Pete Rock is also the older brother and younger cousin, respectively, of rappers Grap Luva and Heavy D.

Pete Rock builds his beats from samples, the majority of which are taken from obscure R&B, funk, and jazz records. Early on in his career he would also sample drum breaks such as Black Heat's "Zimba Ku" for Heavy D & The Boyz's "Letter To The Future".Pete Rock useing AKAI MPC. Pete Rock tends to use the samples as palettes for his beats, chopping (cutting the sample into smaller parts), filtering (altering the frequencies of the sample), and layering several samples, often within the same song.

While this technique was applied long before Rock (on De La Soul's Three Feet High and Rising or the work of The Bomb Squad for example), Rock's work is distinctive for the way in which he uses samples to achieve a hazy, droning effect. He is also noted for his resonant basslines, horn samples, and gritty sounding drums. His beats will sometimes sound as though they were being played from an old vinyl record. Much of this has to do with the fact that he samples many of his sounds straight off vinyl records, as he mentions in this interview.

Another trait of his, more so in the earlier part of his career, is the way he uses horn samples to supplement his grooves. With perhaps the most famous example being "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" (on which he uses a horn sample from Tom Scott's "Today"), Rock has also used horns on several other productions such as "Straighten It Out", Public Enemy's "Shut 'Em Down", Rah Digga's "What They Call Me", and A.D.O.R.'s "Let It All Hang Out".

Along with Gang Starr, The Roots and A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock played a large role in the fusing of jazz and funk music into Hip hop. The aforementioned "Reminisce..." withstanding, Rock used many jazz samples on his album Mecca and The Soul Brother, such as Cannonball Adderley's "Country Preacher", for the song "Return of the Mecca", or "Capricorn" for the song "In The House" from The Main Ingredient.

Pete Rock's heavy use of intro and outro beats has also been widely influential. To introduce feature songs, he often plays a short instrumental excerpt, completely different from the rest of the song. Aside from their role as transitions, these are widely regarded as a way of displaying his large collection and as a challenge to other hip-hop producers to identify the records that the breaks come from.[11] Mecca & the Soul Brother and The Main Ingredient use intro/outro beats on nearly every track to great effect, and the tradition continues to the present on Rock's recent releases.

Visvim Kiefer Hi Patala




A new series of features are embedded in the newest Kiefers, known as the "Patala". Colors on the domestic versions are always subtle but there have some brighter insertions as you can see on the heel cap of the dark green model and on these really cool front zips. We've seen the side apertures on the Masterpiece collabos, later borrowed by Cause and even Wings & Horns, but Visvim is using their own original idea for this release. It's a definite hit, and though brightly colored, it is revealed mainly to the wearer exclusively, since the zip is camouflaged by the laces. The toe cap is an EVA pylon material, and the vulcanized overall structure of the shoe provides lightweight and comfort technology.


Being that Imnot to familar with this brand I got this whole post from Hypebeast but Im gonna try do way more orginal posts

Ok now Im getting real Fucking Mad :Kanye West




As you can see the shit just dont stop and all I want is just to go his concert , I have never been to a concert and all I want is just to see my favorite artist perform .

So whoever reading this
