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.
