Dj Chip Dilla - Carbootie - ghetto house from 1997


Sorry I have not posted for a few weeks. I was in transition on my hardware and also travelling.  But the tapes will sound MUCH better now cause I'm working with this fantastic analog to digital unit - RME Fireface 800.

Anyway, this is another of those tapes from Chris Low I've written about previously.  This came out in 1997, about the same time as Daft Punk's first album, and it's mixed VERY well, with lots of DIY vocal improv.  It's a lot like this live radio show from 1999 I previously posted by Spin Doctor Kim James.  Once again, lovely little misogynistic lyrics ranging from the track "Let Dem Hoes Fight . . . " (side 1) to "If you Ride in my Truck, B*tch You Gonna F*ck" (side 2 - 12:40) to "The Girl, The Girl, The Girl is on fire - We Don't Need No Water Let The F*cking Girl Burn!" (side 2 - 9:50) (a play, of course on the 1985 track Roof is on Fire by Rock Master Scott & The Dynamic Three). 

This tape is slicker and has more of a house sound like the Daft Punk and DJ Sneak stuff from around that time (96-98) - whereas the Spin Doctor Kim James track is more pure booty and hip hop.  I've extracted a few tracks that are mashups of sorts with known house/disco house loops of that time.  One in particular is Ghost Town DJs "My Boo" mashed with Rollin' and Scratchin' by Daft Punk.  Trivia point for you - DJ Sneak did a collab with our own current london darling dj Princess Julia.

Great to hear this tape again!
Actually, thought you may be interested to know that the backing to the track using the 'My Boo' acapella ISN'T daft Punk, Rolling & Scratching (though I admit it does sound more than similar!). I'm afraid I can't remember what the backing track is! But i DO know there's a more complete version of the track on one of my mixes that I gave you, using the same acapella, a 303 track + (i think) a drum track from some Relief white label. Recorded in my old flat in Edinburgh onto plain ol' cassette tape, as a lot of tracks on the Chicago mixtapes, and even vinyl releases, back then were. It was meant to have been on the follow up 12" to the 'Chilli Fingers' EP, but I never finished the tracks off and moved to London shortly afterwards. DJ Urban in Chicago should still have the original tapes which reminds me to chase him up about them!
Cheers, Chris Low x
