Via Max from CHROMEMUSIC I just learned that I slept on the release of volume 3 of Stix records’ excellent »Hip Hop Reggae Series«. Like number 1, it comes from Taggy Matcher who was already responsible for the much celebrated 1st installment.
Again the LP brings togther all those a-side and B-sides of Taggy’s recent 45s, plus throws in a couple of newies as a Brucie Bonus. Musically you should know the script by now – hip hop / nu-soul vocals blended with old school reggae riddims for the perfect hip hop-reggae sound. Highlights include rubs of Mary J’s »Family Affair«, Missy’s »Get Ur Freak On«, Dre’s »Next Episode«, Nas »Ain’t Hard To Tell«, the Beastie’s »Sure Shot« and more. (via Piccadilly Records)
The full track listing reads like this:
02. Get Your Freak On
03. Next Episode
04. Ain’t Hard To Tell
05. Next Episode
06. Sure Shot
07. No Where To Run
08. How High
09. Public Enemy Number #1
Make sure to cop your copy while you can and to get in touch with Max in case you got volume 2 to share with him.
