Wu-Tang offspring and 21st century torch bearer, Killah Priest, is making a move into a domain of music I deem sacred, reggae! There’s not much fusion happening here, this is roots reggae with Killah doing a valiant if not impressive sing-song. It sounds a little too auto-tuned, like that bad Kanye album, Love something or other. For those of you remotely into this track, I recommend checking the Ganjasufi album with Gaslamp Killer, A Sufi and a Killer. It’s deeper music, sounds too similar for me not to comment.
For those of you lucky enough to live in this Smog, Filth, Grime, city that we call Los Angeles, you should hit up The Airliner on Wednesday nights, They got a little night going down over there called Low End Theory, featuring some of the this nations best music talent, weekly. One such resident DJ is Daddy Kev, a quintessential jack of all trades DJ. Plunge yourself down the rabbit hole at Low End Theory and you’ll find yourself enamored with Electro, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, and everything in between. Think of it like the music that would be played in Zion in the Matrix Trilogy, just on some future sonic Jetsons shit. It truly is a wormhole of contemporary music, a 21st century music heritage event, weekly.
For those of you that were lucky enough to have caught the Low End Theory tour in Japan at the end of last year, there’s likely plenty of envy and empathy you have for us Angelinos. For those of you who have never heard of the likes of Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer, and Daddy Kev, check out the Philip Arnold Paul Japan Tour cd*.
Nothing like a sick dubstep electro show right in the middle of a weekend in L.A. We will be hitting up Destroy L.A. tonight, and I’m feeling like a nervous 14 year old about peeping GasLamp Killer and Nosaj Thing once again, no homo. One shitty thing about these types of shows, is not knowing when your favorite DJ is going to start spinning, it can often be hours of agony before you get to peep the set you came to peep. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a set list prior to the show right from the source? Hmmm…
