      HT – Snoop Dogg could not save that. Sounded generic – no groove (woot – 10!).

      BR – Ugh. The groove was too slow.

      RM – Nice. Good flow, bouncy, smooth.

      HT – Durr.
      BR – Just changing drum kit is not a viable compositional technique. (10!)
      RM – Nice, but when does the song start?

      -A

    14. soobrosa :

      HT: Even Mike Jones would fell asleep listenin’ dis. And you wonder why hiphop’s dead. Hi-Tek, you’d better be off listening baile funk.

      BR: Busta, you’re not Afrika, to sample European electro! If you need inspiration check out the 15-year old bootleg punters’ electrohouse version your classics.

      RM: Like an old, bad Slick Rick without Slick Rick.

    15. tom :

      HT: Tired MC’s run out of breath. Snoop asks nephew for three-piece dinner.

      BR: Fembot begs Busta to lick some robot pussy. Busta complies.

      RM: Hip hop for my white grandma that thinks she’s funky.

      Hey Irish-

      Just saw the new ads. Let me know if they offset your operating costs and/or how much money you make.

      If they do well, I’ll start a similar dub/chillout/hiphop/underground mp3 blog if I can get the web hosting & domain name without having to pay for shite.

      Thanks

      Hey Anon,
      who is you? email me contact info.
      (btw- they’re not making money) :-]

      High Tek – Cinci does not need a song to rep it. Just listen to Zapp, Bootsy, Cameo, Isley brothers, Ohio Players. This is NOT the sound of Cinci, IMO.

    23. bob :

      bt- he didnt do his homework, lets hope he can make a better discovery next time.

      Touch it: Great original club banger! Busta is back with the lock on NY. THE BIG BANG in stores soon. http://www.geocities.com/bustaunofficial

      Why not give a listen to: Pillow Logics new disc, Treason to Live, a wiry concept album that gives new meaning to the phrase, “Now, I’ve seen everything!” Ostensibly about a young girl who loses her shoes in a cockfight she mistakenly attends during Thanksgiving 1959, it’s really about the universal themes of loss, angst, candy and damp clothing. Taking its cue from the early commercial work of Deloite and Hughey and filtering it through the “I cut myself shaving” piousness of Throm Tillson, Pillow Logic re-works early sock hop chop flop and allows people like me to enjoy enjoying it.
      RATING: Two T-Shirts and a cup of jizz.

      no?

      Then don’t listen to Thar She Blows, the terrible new cd by The Original Apple Dumpling Gang. If you like shitty, regurgitated slop as evinced by the overlauded production team of Dr. Snagglepuss and Oppressor, then you’re gonna love this. Daring to delve into his worn out bag of used tricks, Dr. Snagglepuss turns to his old SugarSnaps partner, TreacherousFace ZombieHead, and spits out beats that sound like two dying frogs farting in your face. If that’s your idea of an aural good time then you’re probably the kind of person that likes early Faust meets pre-post-op Neutron Bitch also meets Blunder (with a nod to Iceland’s Achilles Healed) but then a fight breaks out and DNA Groove comes over and separates everybody and quickly escorts Neutron Bitch out through the service entrance where they make love on a pile of day old lettuce (like in the movies). Either way, T.A.D.G. do themselves a disservice by trying to milk some more milk from an aids infested cow called “their old music”. All in all it’s a big disappointment, but then again if you like aids milk then I guess this is for you. RATING: 2.shit

      HT – I was ready to hate, but I chilled. Great, save for Hi-Tek’s verse and Snoop’s ad-libs.
      BR – Couldn’t even finish it. Club snoozer.
      RM – I ain’t mad at this. I dig the horns.

      HT: NUP
      BR: NUP
