Blunted On Music

The next guest blogger at the plate (you know---the metal one in your head) is Satchmo. Young Satch may not require an introduction so much as a black label warning. He's a little rude, a bit borderline psychotic, and well...funny as hell. He's the deranged lil' cousin who hangs out on the couch in the Souled On family attic---the Ol' Dirty Bastard of my online crew who turns up periodically when the cops are busy eating donuts. He recently dropped by with some crackalicious Dilla samples that he busted his ass to bring you---literally. Feed him some peanuts and give him his propers. I swear he doesn't bite--Scholar

Well, I did it. I liked Scholar's site so much that I made my own. And here I am about to drop some Satchmo musical knowledge on all of Scholar's readers. I been at this all summer long and plusplus even. But I did it. I found a bunch of the samples J Dilla used back in the day (prepre-Donuts). Labcabincalifornia, Like Water For Chocolate, Fantastic Vol. 1&2 etc. etc. plusplus. This is just a glimpse into the greatness that is me. I could write about how much Dilla changed my life, but I've already done that too much over at (Give Some Love To MaDukes and The Sickly Children). so I'll just talk about me. They've been tellin me basically the same thing since I could walk. They'd sit me down and say, "Mookie, always do the right thing." And I'd ask if that was it, and they'd confirm. Well I am here, now, to say "I got it, I'm gone." If that doesn't make sense to you then shut up, sit down, couch up, twist up, and spark. Now here's this:

Saudade Vem Correndo-Stan Getz (Runnin'-the Pharcyde)

The Look of Love-Barney Kessel (The Look Of Love- Slum)

The Colorado Trail - Dave Crusin ( intro to Fantastic Vol.2, Slum)

Heartbreaker-Zapp ( Give dis N***a- Slum)

Scrabble-Rene Costy (Fuck The Police)

Clair - Singers Unlimited (Players-Slum)

Come Running to Me- Herbie Hancock (Get Dis Money- Slum)

More Bounce to the Ounce- Zapp (Do You-Slum)

Swahililand- Ahmad Jamal (Stakes is High- De La Soul)

What Makes you Happy- KC and the Sunshine Band (Hold Tight-Slum feat. Q-Tip)

Morning Order - Hugh Hooper & Alan Gowen (Nag Champa-Common)


Worde Froume Youre Mommes:

"There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything."---Hagakure: The Way of the Samurai

Excellent. "Stakes is High" is a great underrated track; I honestly didn't know it was a Dilla joint. One.
