SCRATCHTHEBLOCK PRESENTS: THAT'S IT (JAZZ-HOP)

Wassuuup scratchers!!! Today we wanna show ya our 6th jazz-hop selection called That’s It!

Headphones on hands and pump the volume our beatiful people.

Do you remember argentinian jazzy hop producer Gas-Lab and his collaboration with Brooklyn emcee Traum Diggs called Jazz Hop?  We would like to start with Traum single called Sax Fifth Avenue Flow with the collabo of anotha Brooklyn rapper,Williz Freeman. This fantastic and intense masterpiece is included on Black Champion EP.

Jason Skills and Soulo better known with the moniker of Sound Providers know how to make an head-nodding jazz-hop track! In 2005 they released Looking Backwards: 2001-1998. We choose the tight verses of the single Who Am I. The track is a collaboration with Pete Rock’s brother Grap Luva .

Time to make a jump in da past, when 4 guys rapped some perfect hip hop underground shit , under the name of Pharcyde. In 1994 they dropped their single called The Rubbers Song, tearing the streets up!

Revolutionary Rhythm are not rookie on scratchtheblock.com! We already recommended their album Soulvibes. Their genuine,fresh & cool  style impressed us.. So here you are another special track from their album, this is the smooth tune called Love Is Real

Recently we posted something about french jazz-hop producers,Jazz Liberatorz,recommending their album Clin D’Oeil. The classic masterpiece is rich of many great and solid tracks like the tune entitled The Return featuring Sadat X from Brand Nubian!

Digable Planets are one of the most authoritative pioneer of jazz-hop genre.  For this occasion we choose the wonderful beat of Pacifics from album Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space). To realize this single Digable used tha sample of a 1975 track by Lonnie Liston Smith

The next jazz-hop smash is a flawless and trippy proof of the art of rhymes by Los Angeles underground emcee BLU. The track is called Draginbreff and it’s produced by New Jersey native Knxwledge. The short single is available via Bandcamp

In 1993 ex member of Juice Crew (with also Marley Marl) , Big Daddy Kane released his single called How U Get a Record Deal. The track is a sumptuous production by Trackmasters and it’s included on Looks Like A Job For. Although the original version is a must have , we wanna suggest ya the jazzy remix version by U.K rapper/producer Funky DL

Ok, ok Mr. Asher Roth maybe is not exactly an underground artist but for this selection we took a look to his album Pabst & Jazz, choosing the good flow of the selftitled single . Pennsylvania emcee teamed up with producers Blended Babies,Chicago artist Kenny Keys.

Last but not least emcee/beatmaker Amiri with a really fucking dope jazz-hop gem entitled I Do It

Don’t miss the right vibe scratchers!!

SCRATCHTHEBLOCK PRESENTS: THAT'S IT (JAZZ-HOP)

Hey scratchers!!!  Oggi vi presentiamo la nostra sesta jazz-hop selection intitolata That’s It!

Cuffie in mano e iniziate a pompare i decibel bellissima gente.

Vi ricordate del talentuoso jazzy hop beatmaker argentino Gas-Lab  e del suo album in collaborazione con l’emcee di Brooklyn Traum Diggs chiamato Jazz Hop?  Bene, oggi iniziamo a riscaldarci con un singolo di Traum intitolatoSax Fifth Avenue Flow  con un’altro rapper della scena di Brooklyn,Williz Freeman. Il fantastico pezzo e’ incluso nell’album Black Champion EP.

Jason Skills e Soulo meglio noti con lo stage name di Sound Providers  sanno perfettamente come creare un beat coinvolgente. Nel 2005 pubblicano l’album Looking Backwards: 2001-1998. Noi abbiamo selezionato i versi del singolo Who Am I con il fratello di Pete Rock, Grap Luva .

Facciamo un salto nel passato quando 4 giovani conquistavano le strade con le loro rime underground, con il nome di  Pharcyde. Nel 1994 rilasciano il singolo The Rubbers Song!

Revolutionary Rhythm non sono certo delle reclute su scratchtheblock.com! Vi abbiamo gia raccomandato il loro ottimo lavoro intitolato Soulvibes. Il loro genuino,originale e accattivante stile ci ha impressionato, per cui eccovi l’ennesima prova del loro talento:Love Is Real

Recentemente abbiamo parlato dei producers francesi Jazz Liberatorz, raccomandandovi il loro album Clin D’Oeil. Il classico capolavoro jazz hop e’ ricco di tracce di notevole spessore e il singolo con l’ex membro dei Brand Nubian, Sadat X ,intitolato The Return ne e’ la prova inconfutabile!

Digable Planets rappresentano uno dei piu’ autorevoli pionieri del genere jazz hop. Per questa occasione abbiamo scelto il meravoglioso beat del pezzo intitolato Pacifics  estratto dall’album Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space). Per la realizzazione del singolo i l gruppo ha usato il sample del 1975 di Lonnie Liston Smith

La prossima smash e’ la prova impeccabile dell’arte di fare rime del losangelino BLU. Il singolo in questione, Draginbreff  e’ prodotto dal producer del New Jersey Knxwledge e disponibile via Bandcamp

Nel 1993 l’ex membro dei Juice Crew (con Marley Marl) , Big Daddy Kane pubblica il singolo How U Get a Record Deal. La traccia e’ una sontuosa produzione dei Trackmasters e potete trovarla nell’album Looks Like A Job For. Quantunque siamo difronte ad un must have, noi vi suggeriamo l’irresistibile remix version curata dal rapper/producer inglese Funky DL

Ok, ok Mr. Asher Roth probabilmente non e’  etichettabile come artista underground ma ascoltando il suo album Pabst & Jazz, curato dai Blended Babies, ci e’ risultato difficile non includere l’omonimo singolo con l’artista di Chicago  Kenny Keys.

Last but not least l’emcee/beatmaker Amiri  con una gemma jazz hop di tutto rispetto intitolata I Do It

Don’t miss the right vibe scratchers!!
