Pete Rock – On & On – YouTube

Pete_Rock_Gasface_2 Pete Rock shows again that he's a Tru Master with the beats.  This is probably my favorite joint of his new instrumental album, Petestrumentals 2, available now via Mello Music Group.  For those a little too young to remember, the first volume of this was released on BBE records in 2001, and featured some of Pete's best work to date.

exile-radio1 Nobody's sampled Heatwave like this, so shut up.

Eric Roberson “Picture Perfect”

February 27, 2012 at 8:00 am
While normally I don't seek out Eric Roberson tracks, this one really caught my ears.  I heard this on a hotel room music channel a few months back, and it was just background noise for much of the song.  It wasn't until near the very end of the track that I had to stop my conversation with my girl, ask "What IS this?!," and Shazam it.  I believe it's due to the fresh drum programming.   Reminded me of a more Bugz in the Attic kind of broken beat soul track, which really attracted me.  The entire concept is cool, though, and I like the photo negative idea for this video. Actually, now that I think of it, this is EXACTLY what it reminded me of...Jneiro Jarel.
