- "Marco dropped Port Authority last year, May 15th in stores,
its almost may 15th following year 7000 aint been  bought...
So why should we gear it up, & keep putting the effort in, & keep striving & keeping this sh*t relevant (why),
The company's having a hard time selling it,
by yall not copping it yall  saying to hell with it..."

General Discussion / Audio Fidelity
« on: March 18, 2009, 08:07:18 PM »
Spinoff from the Room Acoustics thread:

Far too often we download music & listen to it on our laptops/ PC speakers never giving it a chance to really BUMP.
We do a grave injustice to the audio fidelity of the composition.

This from Rhymefest:
Quote from: Rhymefest
Laptop Music

How did you receive the last piece of music you’ve heard? Did you buy a CD and bump it in your car all the way home, were you in the club dancing up on a hot-a** chick like, ‘Oh shit, what’s that the DJ just throw on!’ Or did you download it for free on your laptop, listen to 15 seconds of it going bink bink boink through your weak-a** speakers before you deleted it from your drive and your life forever.

I admit the first time I heard Kid Cudi’s “Day N’ Nite” it was through my weak a** Mac book. I was like ‘man this aiiight.’ Honestly I made it 59 seconds through the song before it got cut and deleted. Later in the week I found myself in a high brow New York night club and the same record got thrown on I lost my mother f***in’ mind (In a good way). ‘What the hell is this it kind of sound like that song I had on my computer the other day, but better! Did they remix it?’ I had to even ask the DJ whether it was a newer version. To my surprise, it wasn’t. It was the same song I listened to two days ago on my weak a** Mac book. Conclusion: half of the people I know listen to songs off their laptop with no skull candies or professional head phones. How in the hell can you decide if a song is really good or bad like that? Are you that good of a music critic that you don’t need ba**, the correct amount of treble, or the mids arranged correctly? Do we really believe we can hear a song and say yay or nay? How many times has it taken more than three listens before you came around and said, ‘Man that’s pretty hot!’ I honestly feel as though laptop listening is disrespectful to music unless your computer is connected to a bigger pair of speakers or you wear headphones as you preview new music. Some great music is all about the beat or the sound that you can’t hear through your weak a** PC. Some songs have vocals that pan from left to the right speaker that create a sort of magical surround sound. I’ll keep this short and sweet, don’t cheat yourself out of great music by using your weak-a** laptop as a crutch to hear all the newest music quicker. I’m interested on hearing your thoughts.

We'd all to well to at least give new music a fighting chance by investing in proper output speakers/ head/earphones.

Hot Traxxx / Zubz - Cochlea - One Last Letta
« on: February 13, 2009, 08:17:51 PM »
Anyone bought this yet?

http://lastsletters.blogspot.com



Quote
Cochlea - One Last Letta is the third in a series of 3 Albums which I have released through Outrageous Records over 6 years. The first, Listeners Digest was released in 2004; the second Headphone Music In A Parallel World followed two years later in 2006. All three albums play on the “Ear” and “Hearing” as an overriding theme acting as the common thread that binds the records together. This inter relation is done deliberately as I believe the ear has the unique ability to “perceive” that which the eye and indeed all other known senses cannot; the reality of the Soul. This reality is expressed through music.

The 16 track Album is just under an hour long and broken down into three main sections. The first part of the album is heavily slanted towards commentary on my artistic and socio-economic perspective. These opening 6 songs are all personal with an experiential base for inspiration.

The middle part of the record is born from relationship dynamics between a man and a woman. Each of these 6 songs branches into different core ideas, but all stem from the ‘Boy Meets Girl’ trunk. Subtle nuances like the ad lib “…Let’s Keep it like this for a while…” at the beginning of the song “I Got This - Bait the Prey” and “…I Hope She Like it/That’s it…” at the end of “Traditional Her - With Unconditional Love” are my way of letting the listener know that this section is half way done, then finally over.

The final movement of the album is what I call the “Zoned Out” phase of the record. These songs are dreamy and almost abstract in nature, allowing the listener to turn off their brains and switch on their soul; very spiritual.

Producers
Producing a full album means knowing the broader vision for it and reconciling that with the resources available to you. It was extremely important for me to make this Album sound completely different to the last two; fresher and more accessible. For this reason the beat producers on Cochlea - One Last Letta may be relatively new and unheard of to most. Theirs is a mainly programmed sound made more organic with the sparse use of live instrumentation and the avoidance of chopped samples. Theirs is exactly the sound I needed to realise my vision for this record. On boards, I had the pleasure of working with Afrika, Tagteam, Mason Black, Herbie Dangerous, Ameen, Helio, pH, SyC and Iko. With the exception of Helio and Iko, all of these producers I worked with for the first time on Cochlea - One Last Letta

Featured Artists
No good album is done in isolation and Cochlea - One Last Letta is no exception. With a wealth of talent in Mzansi to choose from I only had two important criteria for the artists I decided to work with on this record. One; does the song require their specific touch on it? Two; do I have a genuine personal relationship with these artists based on respect and admiration? For the following artists the answers to both were yes. Cochlea - One Last Letta enlists the incredible talents of DJ Hamma, RJ Benjamin, Kalakoda, Pebbles, Pedro of 340ml, Tracey Lee, Lebo Mashile, Rantoboko, Chi, Kabomo, Audrey, Tino and young Lungelo.

In between every album I have released there is a wealth of experience acquired and I have tried to translate that into all the new music I release. This growth is reflected on Cochlea - One Last Letta which, I can say without hesitation, is the most complete album I have done to date. Hear it and you’ll see why.

Peace

Coolio used the sample too on a song of the same name.

Please any idea let me know been stressing all day about that. You will be adequately rewarded...
