TTW008: DJ SACRED – SACRED MIXES VOL. I

cover-1Its more than 21 years ago when the underground Tape „Smoked Out, Loced Out“ was released by Triple Six Mafia (November 25, 1994!) Main members Lord Infamous and Koopsta Knicca died in 2013 and 2015, respectively. But the original memphis sound is still alive and has a great impact on the current trill and trap movement. Dj Sacred goes back to the good old days and serves a real classic memphis mixtape with famous memphis vocal snippets. Snares slapping hard and melodies moving in ethereal spheres. I know nothing about Dj Sacred but he seems to have a connection to Doomshop Records. 

DJ SACRED: „Real shyt never dies. Peace“

TTW007: Black Kray – Shitty Sickboy

a0024192439_10-1This time at “Tape of the Week“: Black Kray – Shitty Sickboy

Black Kray aka Foreighn Jetski aka Gothboi aka Gvcci Kray aka Lil’ Rari aka Lil’ Shye aka Baby Moet aka Ferrari Kray aka Icedoutuzi`s new album dropped two weeks ago on December 16, 2003. 2003? Yes, Kray has a preference for the early 2000s. (his passion for flip phones is just one example) The Gothboi and his label Goth money created a unique internet sound which can be placed in the orbit of sad boys and team shesh. The 18-year-old artist from the Richmond,Virginia cannot be defined. He makes music that ranges between the 90s memphis lo fi sound, emotional pop and trill or like he says: seapunk and witch house. Sometimes i have serious problems to understand him. Maybe this is due to the fact that he records his tracks at his grandmas place with the mic of a laptop but fuck that: Its Gvcci Kray and he is the shit.

TTW003: $uicideboy$ – Now the Moon’s Rising

a0095708844_10This time at “Tape of the Week”: $uicideboy$ – Now the Moon’s Rising

“God is dead. Aliens exist. The New World Order is real and in full effect. Smoke weed everyday.“
Everyone who is into that trill, cloud rap game, will not be able to get around these guys. New Orleans based duo $uicideBoy$ sound like a hybrid of old Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The subject matters of the $uicideBoy$ are mostly focused on spirituality and occult mysticim. $crim and Oddy Nuff are well known for heavy beats ($crim) and a raw and evil style. On their new album they heat the fire again staight on 666 degress.
„smoke dat till we pass out“

 

The digital release was 6 days ago on G59 records.
