The first music to hit my ears was an all world early greats mix tape of sure shot legends like Afrika Bambaataa and Whodini.  A buddy dubbed these mind melting sounds over his mom's Billy Joel tape and slipped it to me at middle school when the teacher wasn't looking.  After riding through thirty minutes of soybeans and tobacco I made a swift power move out of mom's car with my grip set on the K-mart boom box chilling on the blue linoleum floor.  That summer I shot baskets in the backyard and banged that tape off the train tracks while the cows across the way kept trying to act like they weren't feeling it.  A few years later I found my dad's old suitcase record player with the fold out speakers that looked like encyclopedias.  Dropped twenty five cents on a beat copy of Iron Butterfly's Heavy and that was it.  Bought armloads of dollar records back in the last great dying days of the truly deep bargain bins.  Learned about the funky bones of hip hop one stack at a time.  Moved through different sounds and collections over the years.  Took time away but could never stay away.  After all this time the true joy is the first joy:  rolling home with a fresh stack of new sounds to kick back and groove to.  

Los Donana

Traditional guitar strum harmony folk that takes a break for two titanic tracks packed with high drama drum and bass action.  If you need a sick synth line intro they've got one of those too.

Genevieve Waite - Love is on the Rise

Be warned:  Waite's hellacious non-singing puts Wolfman Jack's wack 70s soul swinger moves to shame.  Stay strong brave beat maker, there's ill drama moves and hot head nodder grooves for The Producer With The Iron Ears.

The Revelators.

A stone cold classic spine chiller piano intro as well as a banging funky drum, bass, and piano groove.  If you peep do not sleep.

The Woodall Brothers Band.

Woodall Brother #1:  Say there fella, you've got your garage rock in my straight ahead guitar jazz.  Woodall Brother #2:  Now hold on friend, you've got your straight ahead guitar jazz in my garage rock.  Producer From The Future:  Y'all taste alright together, but I'm about to snatch out this one fast funky groove with a whistling dude that sounds like the soundtrack to a Tarantino fever dream.

 

Jim Fassett - Stra Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple Choirs

Mostly a choral record but someone slipped a sick synth and ill acid guitar intro into the mix.   There's also a folk rock groove riff and a smooth groove bass lick laced with mellow late night butter guitar.   Rare private sounds for the producer on a mission.
