이글루 그만 두려고 합니다.

현재 티스토리로 냐금 냐금 19금 옮겨 가는 중입니다.

아마 그리고 티스토리로 옮기고 나면

쵸이스 시리즈에대한 이야기는 한장 한장 절라 심도 있도있게 다루어 낼 예정이니까..거의 안된다고 보면 됨.

하여간 그런 줄 아삼.

Jackson Conti



Go!

여름이 왔고. 뭘 기다렸는지 모르지만, 작년에 Yesterday's Unverse 에서 선보였던 프로젝트 Jackson Conti.
나왔네. Azymuth 의 드러머 Ivan Conti 'Mamao' 의 합작입니다.

이건 B+ 의 증언(?)

Jackson Conti: Sujinho

Madlib loves Brasilian music.

Back in 2002 that wasn’t so obvious. At that time he was beginning the experiments that led to the Yesterday New Quintet records from 2003 to today. Peanutbutter Wolf used to slide Coleman and myself CDs of those early “rehearsals” as Madlib would call them and we spent many hours dissecting and discoursing on them and how he was changing the music.

When the possibility of the Keepintime crew going to Brasil came up I asked Madlib one night outside the Rootdown if he wanted to go. “Cmon man…. Azymuth is one of my favorite groups” he confided. I had seen many Azymuth records over the years, the Rio de Janeiro trio on Milestone with some dodgy looking covers. I knew their proto-house anthem Jazz Carnival but they weren’t my favorite group.

Music has a beautiful way of making you re-evaluate what you may have discarded. Madlib is an artist that gives one new ears every couple of years if you choose to pay close enough attention. I’m happy to say that in regards to Azymuth - Madlib blew our heads open. The next time I saw him at the Rootdown, he slipped me a CD of covers. All Azymuth. To this day that CD still makes me giddy. Entrando Pelo Janela from that session made it onto the Keepintime remixes. Madlib had gone through the Azymuth catalogue and taught himself to play his favorite songs and then recorded it. Okay. Now I’m back at the record store frantically looking for those dodgy looking covers.

When we went to Brasil to recruit drummers the only name I knew I wanted for sure was Mamão. Mamão is the drummer of Azymuth. I didn’t know how to pronounce his name right and indeed my pronunciation of Azymuth (Azze-muchi if you need to know how its done!) confused most Brasilians. João Parahyba of the legendary Trio Mocoto picked up the phone and called him for us and from there Ivan ‘Mamão’ Conti was a part of the project.

Mamao is a fantastic drummer and a warm generous person. That scene in the film where we played him the Madlib CD is a beautiful emblem of the spirit of the Brasilintime. Mamão reacted with genuine excitement at the music - singing and playing percussion along with it. Even calling in his wife to hear. We knew that a Madlib, Mamão collaboration would only take time and organization.

Mamao of course isn’t simply the drummer of Azymuth. He has a long career in the studios of Rio that stretches back to the Jovem Guarda era with the rock group the Youngsters and which includes sessions for Roberto Carlos, Marcos Valle, Maria Bethania, Hyldon, Edu Lobo, Chico Buarque, Gal Costa among many others. He is also the drummer on the Dom Salvador record with the monster break! He continues to be active playing and producing many projects for Far Out Records.

In 2006 after the Premiere of Brasilintime in Sao Paulo, Madlib, Coleman and I went to Rio. We had two reasons to be there, to play at MD2’s record release party and record with Mamão. On a rainy humid Rio evening we convened and after some deliberations Mamão played an hour and half of rhythms. The excitement in the room was palpable as he went through his paces. Lots of Whooos were heard and pounds were swapped.

Madlib then played a new CD of tracks that he had been working on with this project in mind and there was one that stuck with Mamao. Segura esta Onda is that track and it is really a tribute to Azymuth. Mamao ended up singing on it.

It was a great night and within two months Madlib had turned those rhythm tracks into the album you have in your hands.

Filled with songs from the greats of Brasilian music of the mid sixties to early seventies. Luiz Eca, Chico Buarque, Joao Donato, Baden and Vinicius, Marcos Valle, Dom Um Romao, Airto even George Duke gets a look in. And of course Azymuth.

This a very special set of music.

I hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did watching it being made….

[2008.00.00] Jackson Conti are Madlib & Mamao from Azymuth - Sujinho (Kindred Spirits)

So, Madlib loves Brasilian music eh? Professing his love for Brasilian music and especially that of Ivan 'Mamao' Conti, the incredible session drummer well known for his work with legendary group Azymuth, and participant in the Brasil leg of the Keepintime project from a couple of years back. Madlib has obviously relished this opportunity to work with one of his heros and the results are total gold, marrying the slinky rhythmic charge of Conti with Madlib's inimitable musical mind to create a future summer staple. The album runs through classic Brasilian standards from the greats of mid sixties to early sevenites like Luiz Eca, Chico Buarque, Joao Donato, Baden and Vinicius, Marcos Valle, Dom Um Romao, Airto Moreira or Azymuth, and mixes them with new tracks devised from the sessions and scultped by Madlib into the breezy summer winners packed into the 18 tracks on offer. Highly recommended!

Oh No



곡 잘만들고, 랩이나 훅이나 몇번 듣지 않아도 기억될 만큼 잘 쓰고 잘 내뱉고, 뭐 별로 흠도 없고 충분히 신나고 그런데.
나 이노래 별로 안좋아함. Lyricist's Lounge 란 컴필도 존나 좇밥스럽다고 생각함.

Situations.



핏롹의 질감, 공간, 스케잎이 무엇인지 존나 쉽고 단순하게 끝장으로 박아낸 트랙.
클래스가 이 정도였는데, 요사이 보여준거 듣고 그 수준이 동일선상에 있다 여겨진다고 하는건, 그건 '사랑하지만 헤어져야 하는게 너한테 좋은일인거 같애.' '실은 우린 자매야' 뭐 이정도 수준의 캐드라마 멘트와 동일선상에 있는 개념과 사고의소유자라고 고백하는 것. 좋겠다. 드라마 들 열심히 봐라.

Freedom of Soul - 2nd Coming



Freedom of Soul - 2nd Coming (1994, Brainstorm)



1. 열 트랙으로 꾸면지 앨범이다.

2. peacefiveightysix (발음 피스화이붸이뤼씩(쓰) 이정도..이 새끼가 랩함) 와 DJ Cartoon 으로 구성된 듀오.

3. 그외에 몇명의 프로듀서들이 참여해서 앨범을 만들었는데, 좀 좋다. 이 당시 릴리즈들이 가지는 출중한 가치 중에서도 상당히 기억될만한 성의가 막 있는 앨범인데, 사운드를 다듬어내서 피우는 향이 좀 좋다.

4. 하지만 믹싱이나 마스터링의 성의가 돋보이는 본질적인 이유는 앨범의 프로덕션이 좀 말이 안나올 정도로 잘만들었기 때문이 아닐런지...귀로 캐치되는 샘플들의 열거나 이것의 배치, 드럼, 베이스, 세션 운영 아놔 진짜 너무 잘하고 꼼꼼하고 따뜻(?)해서 볼이 다 발그레 질 지경.

5. 크리스챤 랩이란 정체성임에도 불구하고 '7' T-Bone 인사도 참여했고, 그외 비슷한 계열에서 이름을 드높였던 Brainwash Project 그리고 LPG and Sup the Chemist (what?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)같은 크루의 진귀한(?)참여 까지 체크해 볼 수 있는 나름의 크리스챤 랩의 '원류'격 앨범이라 할 수 있겠다. (몇몇 분들은 이 열거된 이름을 보다가 좀 희한한 기분이 들것이라 생각한다. 그래서 결국 사람이 사람인거지 신이 아니었던 것이었던 것이었다.)

P.S. 쵸이스에 포함해서 알리면 될 것도 같은데, 그냥 따로 이렇게 대강 언급하고 말았다.
주로 에픽이나 소니 등의 대형 배급/제작사를 통해 발매됐던 브레인스톰의 크리스쳔 랩 앨범들은 시대적으로나 여러면에서 귀중한 가치와 수준이상의 음악이 담겨 있는 앨범들이이었다 생각된다. 차후 쵸이스 시리즈 포스팅 하면서 이 중 몇장을 공개하겠지만, 이 앨범이나 이 듀오의 앨범은 좀 따로라도 언급하고 싶어서 그냥 따로 한다. 근데 91년에인가 앨범 한장 더 있다고 하는데, 궁금해 죽겠네. 그럼 닥치고 앨범을 감상하세요. Never Changes 같은 경우는 진짜 조금의 흠이라곤 없는 클래식 트랙이며, 그외 Dusk till Dawn, Sonshyne 등의 트랙..아 그냥 다 미쳤어. 정말 좋아. ♡
