Marsellus Wallace & Skeme Richards - Cops Crooks and Spies

A year ago I was approached by Jamison Harvey over at Flea Market Funk and asked to do a mix for them. I've always had a lot of respect for what they do, and I also enjoy listening to their mixes. After brainstorming some ideas, I decided I'd like to somehow include my brother Skeme Richards as well. So, we came up with the idea that I would put together a mix and he would dub dialogue from his massive VHS collection and lay it on top. Our concept was to make the soundtrack to a movie that never existed. So, that's what we did!!! With that said, we proudly present to you "Cops Crooks and Spies". Thank you everyone for your support and open ears. We hope you enjoy it. Peace.

Peppino De Luca & I Marc 4 - L'Uomo Dagli Occhi Di Ghiaccio (The Man With Icey Eyes)

What else can be said about this crazy Italian OST that already hasn't been proven? Simply put, it's the BEST!!! Pressed on the infamous "Pegaso" label out of Italy, what we have here is L'Uomo Dagla Occhi Di Ghiaccio aka "The Man With Icey Eyes OST". If anyone out there isn't familiar with I Marc 4, now is a great introduction. Starring the gorgeous Barbara Bouchet, this flick is the epitomy of Giallo  crime Jazz/Funk. Rare? Maybe 10 or so copies exist. As stated earlier, I won't run my mouth. Just peep the sound clip and download this Holy Grail before the rare groove police get their hands on it. Peace ya'll.

Takeshi Tamada - Oriental Fantastic Orchestra

YO!!! Has anyone out there ever heard of this joint? It's NUTS!!! Koto breakbeats on top of Japanese arrangements. Superb!!! I got this copy many years ago from Japan in solid mint condition. Needless to say, the recording reflects that. Crazy!!! To be honest.  I'm not gonna run my waffle about this LP any longer. Just peep the sound clip and download the record. Thanks for tuning in folks ;)


It's FRIDAY!!!

Franco Micalizzi - Laure OST

Yo Yo!!! Whats good out there?!!! Looks like I'm stuck babysitting tonight. No worries though, I love the little guys. Since we have been on a trip to Italy, I thought I'd share with everyone yet ANOTHER rare gem from the Italian vault. What we have here is Franco Micalizzi's OST called "Laure". When it comes to raer, this one takes the cake. Took me many many years to hold this joint. I know a few seasoned Italian dealers/collectors that used to tell me that this OST didn't even exist. Well, it does. Not many exist, but believe me…it's not a myth. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite soundtracks. It's so damn good that well….I had to share it. With that said, I just wanted to thank everyone out there who have been following this blog as long or as short as you have. As most of you know, my ultimate mission always is to shed some light on albums that never saw the light of day. This means a lot to me. As a DJ I feel like it's my purpose to not only break the boundaries, but also to educate the public.  I buy the records, and share them with the world. It's a simple concept! If you have any doubt about this album, just peep the sound clip embeded. This record is bananas! Have a great weekend everyone :)

P.S. I created another email account so everyone could check sound clips on DivShare. Customer service is priority numero uno!

Francesco De Masi - L'Italia Vista Dal Cielo

I'm back with another gem off of the Italian label "Sermi". This is a fantastic Bossa Jazz record with a touch of Lounge. Definitely one for the collectors out there! It is the soundtrack to Folco Quilici's "L'Italia Vista Dal Cielo" documentary. Anything with Vibraphones is ok in my book. The perfect Sunday afternoon record. Can you say rare?
