I thought it was about that time for another Ear Test mixx, since I haven't posted one in a few months. I call this chumpy "Ear Test 8: Sacraficial Jamz" and you need this one. For all of you newer SoundNexx visitors my Ear Test series mixxes are used to showcase some of that soul music that can't be labeled under any one genre. This music consist of heavy basslines, catchy rhythms and diverse lyricism. Not radio friendly music at all. Just the way I like it actually! Like all of the mixxes that I post, I'm using this joint as a way for you folks to discover some new and dope artists. No, most of you probably won't recognize the majority of the artist names on this track list, but don't let that discourage you from checking it out. Think of it like the first time you had sex, it was probably scary initially, but the pay off was hopefully worth it. If you are still a virgin, ignore the previous sentence and download it anyway! With dope artists like Madvillian, Osunlade, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Marvin Gaye in the same mixx how can you lose?

Daniel said...

Whats up? This may sound weird but i was wondering if you could help identify the singer and song that was sampled in the hook of this song
I cant seem to find out who it is, so any help would be appreciated

BTW i really like your mixxes and blog

Greetings from Portugal

@Sdot - Thanks for coming thru playa! Good looks on that Muhsinah joint too! I already had it, but it's the thought that counts my dude. Me & Muh-Muh go way back...
I haven't forgotten about your Durand request either...

@Daniel - Yo playboy, I checked out that YouTube joint and the only thing that I can truly salvage from it sample wise was a snippet of Lauryn Hill on that Fugees' song "Ready or Not!" I am a man of many languages, but language used in the video isn't one of them.

As far as that instrumental loop that plays during the beat seems like a recreation using a beat machine and not a record sample. It just a simple piano loop that could have been pulled from any where. To be sure though, I'll run it pass a couple of my peoples to see if they might know who it is.

Daniel said...

Thanks a lot man. What i was wondering about the sample is that in the chorus you can hear after the girl sings a male voice going "just a state of mind" and its real soulful and i thought that could be from some 60's/70's soul song.

Thanks again man

Little Dragon - Little Dragon
Nicolay & Kay - Time Line
Owusu & Hannibal - Living With

Good looking out on the info!!!
The two stand-out traxx that I'm feenin' to get my hands on are:

Longing - Geology feat. Lorah Cross

It's U (Remix) - Domu feat. Tiombe Lockhart

Noitulover - W. Ellington Felton feat. Lou-Lou

Which album or vinyl can I find these gems?


SoundNexx DJ said...

@Chu - Those first two joints that you mentioned were gifts to me from some cool folks overseas in the United Kingdom. I am not sure if those joints have been officially released or not.

That Wes Felton joint I think is on one of his many albums or EPs, but I don't know which one? I get stuff from everywhere, so it's difficult for me to remember all of the time.

Fortunately, I have that Wes track digitally stored, so I can forward it to you if you'd like?
