Mas Salsa Que Tú – Ten Cuida’o

In: Music, Video

This has been all over La Mega and La Kalle lately, and it’s my favorite shit right now. Mas Salsa Que Tú consists of Miami’s El Mola, San Juan’s Pirulo, and Myzta (not sure where he’s from), whose music melds elements of Salsa, Afro-Latin and Hip-Hop.

“Ten Cuida’o” is their big hit right now on CNO/White Lion Records, the folks behind Tego Calderón, Calle 13, Voltio, and Casa de Leones (Wisin y Yandel).

I really can’t get enough of this tune:

Here’s some bonus, behind-the-scenes action:

Mas Salsa Que Tú…the reality !

Nardwuar vs. N.E.R.D – The Extended Version

In: Music, Video

I hope the holidays are treating everyone well. Things have been a little hectic lately at buhbOmp HQ, what with the holidays and all bringing fam into town, and me on parent patrol all week. Time on the interwebs has been a bit sporadic.

The homie Aser in Toronto emailed me this little video nugget earlier this evening, tho, (no doubt on some Canadian pride steez) and I thought some of y’all would dig it. I know the good people of Canadia would probably want to give me the gas face and a latte pass for this, since I knew nothing about Nardwuar the Human Serviette until now, and this clip is from July. But better late than never.

Watch as Pharrell gets blown away by Nardwuar’s unorthodox interviewing style, and the deep research that goes along with it:

More Nardwuar goodies here.

‘ear dis! Sorry Les, but that one reminded me of Mr. Ugly Man. This skit was one of the more memorable parodies for In Living Color. So, so gooood.

Shabba Ranks “Mr. Lover Man” (Feat. Chevelle Franklin)

Vybz Kartel ft. Spice – Ramping Shop

In: Music, Video

I fux with this. Spice looks like she could break me in half. Fierce.

That’s the clean version. For the NSFW audio, peep.

For our 11th episode, EMPANADAMN and DJ LIL TIGER team up on a quick, 40-minute mix of styles from Hip-Hop, soul, pop and beyond with throwbacks and currents all thrown in. We have plenty on the slate for ’09, so nibble on this for a bit and enjoy the holidays.

Following-up on Cashless’s Organized Noize / GA post (kinda), wanted to post this Gnarls Barkley video that I originally saw on RappersIKnow.com . It may be my dirty secret that I actually liked the most recent Gnarls Barkley album. Do I miss Cee-Lo the rapper, of course. Can I tolerate Cee-Lo the singer…yeah, for the most part.

All of my fellas should appreciate the video for the same reason I did. Because unless you are either (a) lucky or (b) a bigger mack than Goldie himself, there is a girl at some point in your life that did this to you.

The post title pretty much says it all. There’s ALOT more that I could have put into this post, but damn if most of the vids that I wanted to post have embedding disabled. DAMN YOU UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP!!!

Ghetto Mafia – Straight from the Dec

Maceo – Go sit down

Cool Breeze – Watch out for the hook

Witchdoctor – Holiday

Society of Soul – Pushin’

INOJ – Love you down

INOJ – Time after time

Drama – Left Right Left

Dj Kizzy Rock – Yeah Shawty Yeah

MC Shy D – Shake it.

The days are passing by way too quickly. Christmas and Hanukkah are around the corner, and if I hear any version of Jingle Bells one more damn time, I might catch a case …

Here’s the final Welfare offering of the year from the buhbOmp crew. Enjoy:

Jef Cashless | making L.A. look like Japan daily…

Emynd – Reach Out
The first time I heard this track, I was sold. You dudes talking that, “Bmore is played” talk, need check your crotchety, mad young, old man at the door. Cooley High flashbacks like a mug.

Scarface feat Jay-Z & Beenie Sigel – Guess who’s back
I posted this cut for a couple of reasons, primarily because it’s still embodies everything that can be good about hip hop. Secondly, as a reminder never to take even the most seemingly insignificant thing for granted. Brad Jordan is retiring the moniker Scarface after his lastest lp, Emeritus. ‘Face will be missed.

Hot 8 Brass Band – Get up (Diesler remix)
Not for nothing, your boy, Diesler has quietly become one of my favorite remixers. NOLA + handclaps from hell + sampler = heat. Simple equation.

Amp Fiddler, Sly & Robbie – Blackhouse (Paint the Whitehouse Black)
I really wished the mainstream media would have shown some false sense of outrage at such a provocative, beautiful piece of music as this. Instead, we have a lackadaisical offering from Jeezy and Nas and forgettable mixtape fodder from Luda. Hopefully this seeming to tribute to both Obama and George Clinton is welcome at buhbOmp. It’s produced/performed by soulman extraordinaire, Amp Fiddler, as well as Reggae legends and elder statespeople, Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare.
*Sorry DJ’s only @ 183kbps

J-Dawg feat Slim Thug – Ridin’ on 4′s
One of the hardest Houston tracks from 2007. Nuff Said.

dj lil tiger | future perfect

D’angelo – Shit, Damn, Motherfucker (live)
I miss this dude, and I’m still pissed that I missed this tour and have never gotten to see dude perform live. D’Angelo is a beast, and this recording (live in Sweden, I think) just drives that home.

Herbert – The Audience
The closing cut from Herbert‘s classic 2001 LP Bodily Functions. Dani Siciliano showing her brilliance on the vocals. You gotta listen to this all the way through. It’s all about the change up when the keys come in. This song haunts me.

La Rouge – Alla Deng Lobi
An old favorite of mine from Surinamese/Dutch band La Rouge off their #8 Hosse Hosse album. Get inside the rhythm and percussion on this. Big up to cousin Daryl for passing me this CD in Arnhem a while back.

Mr V – Put Your Drink Down (Copyright Remix)
Funky house re-work of this big tune from the Lower East Side’s Mr. V feat. the Candela All Stars. PR-NY-UK connect.

Neon Phusion – The Future Ain’t The Same As It Used 2 b
Another tune from around the turn of the century, but still as forward-thinking and ahead of its time as ever. There are so many amazing layers to this tune and so many progressions from beginning to end — the vocals, the percussion, instrumentation — that I don’t even know where to begin. Neon Phusion was a collaboration between Bugz in the Attic’s Afronaut, Alex Phountzi and Kaidi Tatham. This track features the percussion programming by IG Culture. That’s a combo that just can’t go wrong. Just put this on and let it ride. Tune everything else out. This song is just beautiful. It boggles my mind that this tune is almost 10 years old now.

empanadamn | HO, HO, HOEZ!

Run DMC “Christmas Time In Hollis”
The quintessential hip-hop x Christmas track. The video is great as well. I remember MTV’s holiday commercial spot using this song back in the day with animations by Keith Haring, who also did the cover art to the album.

Carlos Feliciano “Feliz Navidad”
Funky Bilinguin’. As a child, I remember seeing Señor Feliciano rip it on some holiday Christmas special feeling a great sense of pride. Dude has a lot of passion when he sings and plays.

Carlitos “Mi Burrito Sabanero”
Another clasico en español. This is a well known childrens version, sung by a young Venezuelan boy in the 70s. See the video here.

Vince Guaraldi “Christmas Time Is Here” (Instrumental)
Made famous from the holiday TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” this song is synonymous to Xmas at home for me. Strangely enough, this track strikes a mixture of emotions – warmth and happiness contrasted by somberness, longing, and loneliness. Such is the complexity of Charlie Brown’s character.

Vince Guaraldi Trio “Linus & Lucy (Pocketknife’s Hark, The Holler Remix)”
A revamped version for the Peanuts crew, this one always puts a smile on people’s face when they hear it in the mix. P.S. My mom does a great version of the teacher from Peanuts.

Q-Tip + Prince = Game blouses.

In: Music, Video

This whole Q-Tip revival thing is really doing wonders for me. I’m sure the folks at the House of Blues in Las Vegas for Tip’s show agree. Witness below as the Purple One makes a surprise cameo to jangle the strangs a little on “Vivrant Thing”:

DJ Still Life posted this nifty little edit up on The Strut a few days ago, and I’ve just gotten around to giving it a listen. And now I can’t stop. Can’t wait to put it in a mix. In his words:

Grabbed this around this time last year from Frank’s amazing Voodoo Funk blog (I’m sure you’re all familiar). It’s a monster, so I did a quick edit for mix-ability. Nothing complicated, but something fun to add some holiday cheer to your sets, courtesy the Mother Land.

Also, if you’re in NY, this Thursday and next (12/11, 12/18) are the last nights to catch Frank spinning @ Santo’s. I’m headed out on the 18th, I’m sure I’ll see some of y’all out there.

Pee Pee Dynamite- “Groovy Christmas and New Year” (DJ Still Life edit)

I been meaning to check out that Santos party. Damn.
