Slang Meets Soul

(Above sketch courtesy of SCRITCH & SCRATCH)

In the interests of keeping things fresh and out of the ordinary around here, I decided to give vik from Biochemical Slang the absolute soul power to call the shots for today's post. I started out by simply asking him if he had any favorite sample joints/original songs that he'd like to share with some needy soul children. Everything else, from the title to the ending quote is the product of his intelligent design. Now here we stand at the funkiest intersection of the blogosphere...where Slang Meets Soul...

David AxelrodThe Smile

Thanks for the drop!!

The Sylvers song was also used by RJD2 for the remix to "June" with Copywrite from "The Horror EP" from a few years back.

Vincent said...

As always, a quality selection of originals... some of which I have completely forgotten about. Thanks a lot for all the support.

That's interesting finally hearing the sample for "Greatest Man Alive". I love that song and I've always kind of wondered about it (the sample). Good stuff as always.

JT said...

Solid stuff. Biochem is a regular visit, and this is a solid contribution!

Axelrod's easily in my Top 10 of life [Tunes-makers division].

jesus piece is back. good looks on all these vids.

sw9---I thought vik made a good choice with that cut, too.

Anon---That's such a good movie---lots of quotables.

vee---scritch and scratch is amazing. props.

zilla---You're right, and RJ used that joint on "Here's What's Left", too.

Vincent---The Stew is the greatest.

Trav---Buck 65 and The Gorillaz sampled that track, too. Based on what I know of your taste, I'm guessing that you probably made it a point to sleep on both of those.

JT---Axelrod is a true musical genius. I was glad when vik dropped "The Smile" because I've been meaning to post "The Human Abstract" for way too long. Thankfully, one of us was on it.

Mike---Welcome back. Long live The Jesus Piece...

travis said...

Scholar, I do have the two Gorillaz albums, but I'd be lying if I said I listened to either of them much.

I had a reader that tried to convince me of the greatness of Buck 65, and sent me a bunch of his work, but I never got into it much.
