The party was waaaay hype, peace to all who showed up. If you missed getting a copy at Triple Crown, then go on over to LOOSE TAPE where you can download all the remixes we been working on here at 877 Park Pl. lately. “Difibrillators” has a little something for everyone; from a funky reggae rework of Three 6 Mafia, to a Hendrix infused Ludacris, to a Jazzyfatnastee mix of Camp-Lo. Been busy in swirls lately. But I think I’m getting my footing again- new job, new vehicle, new level of brokeness. And now, as the first NYC snow settles deeper into late night icy slickness, a bit of soul…

Brenton, doesn’t have a huge hit list, but this one’s a pure fire classic. I’m definitely feeling the heavy influence of reggae and blues throughout the album. Interesting that there weren’t more experiments along these lines back then. Seems to make perfect sense the way Brenton sings it.

And then a couple joints from Ms. Peebles. She’s certainly no stranger to the soulfully informed, but I feel like you can never get enough of a thing this good. Trademark Memphis production from Willie Mitchell, and some more of those early organ drum machine sounds (isn’t that what it is?) that we’ve been giving love to recently over here in the crate.
