More Bounce Records have recently dropped 2 nice vinyls which we are obliged to mention here on our blog. First, it’s West Coast Lovin’ is the long-awaited 12″ Maxi from Fevah, an American female singer from Los Angeles, CA. It came out on 28th Dec 2017 and contains 4 tracks, one being the original version (composed by Dogg Master & Mofak) and the other – remix (produced by Dogg Master), with both instrumentals respectively. Both versions feature talkbox by Dogg Master.
While working on his next solo album, Dogg Master keeps his fanbase ‘warm’ enough and longing for it by having dropped 7″ with the tracks that will be featured on the album. This time, he teamed up with long-time partner Busta Brown to create “Body Therapy“, the dance-floor slapper on which Dogg Master played talkbox and Busta Brown – vocoder. Pre-orders have been opened with its release date on 26th Feb 2018.
It took 11 months for The BREED to release his 2nd album since his dropped his debut “The Beauty and The Breed”on September 4th, 2016. For those who don’t know yet, The BREED is the German beatmaker & talkboxer, and now he’s back with his 2nd release shortly called “Sexbox”. Though we haven’t got a chance to listen to the whole album yet, but based on the first album and new video clips which you can watch below, it’s close to impossible to refuse to peep inside the “Sexbox”.
Once again it was released only in Vinyl format, also limited to 500 copies, but this time it’s Pink vinyl. When you buy vinyl, it comes with A2-sized poster + free download code by default. Order your copy @ VINYL-DIGITAL.COM ONLINE SHOP & your package will be shipped directly from Germany.
And yeah, until this moment we still don’t really know…
Last year we missed one dope g-funk album “Sligh Boulevard” released by Sligh Talkbox, a versatile hip-hop musician from Grand Rapids (Michigan). He started out as a guitarist and fell in love with Hip Hop during the Golden Era in the 1990’s. Sligh began writing & producing Hip Hop in the mid 90’s with a funk infused sound with catchy hooks and feel good lyrics. He expanded his skills as a musician by adding bass guitar an keyboard to his repertoire.
In 1997 Sligh released his first Hip Hop album as part of a Hip Hop duo “Love West.” He followed this album up with a solo effort “Sligh’s Special Reserve” in 2000. Both albums had some underground buzz, but Sligh would have to go back to the lab. He released the Gospel rap album “Pure Gold” with the group “Brothers On The Hill” in 2009. But again something was missing for Sligh, so he went back to his funk roots as he was a long time fan of the group Zapp & Roger. The talkbox was an instrument that had always intrigued Sligh and the Sligh Talkbox Era began in 2010. Talkbox proved to be a pivotal piece of the puzzle for Sligh. He worked hard on his talkbox skills and has recorded talkbox features for artists all over the world and in 2016 he released his full-length solo album “Sligh Boulevard” both in digital and CD format.
On this album any g-funk fan find something for themselves: the album is full of smooth talkbox hooks by Sligh and has many dope features. It was produced by Sligh and Nixon, at the same time Sligh plays talkbox, keyboard, guitar and bass on the album. This is a kinda perfect album for summertime and is a tribute to the G Funk Era of Hip Hop, the era that made Sligh fall in love with Hip Hop.
You can cop a digital copy on Sligh Bandcamp Page but you need to get at him on his Facebook Page or email him @ firstname.lastname@example.org for a CD hardcopy (it was released in 6-panel digipak) which is limited to 200 copies.
10 years after his first vinyl release, West Coast Pioneers 12″, Funkmaster Ozone is bringing us 2 powerful tracks, full-analog synths, dedicated to all the popping dancers and talkbox freaks, from P.Funk to Electro-Funk, released exclusively on Happy Milf Records on 7-inch vinyl 45RPM.
You can listen to & order this record on Happy Milf Records Bandcamp: first 100 bandcamp pre-orders will get it with printed, hand-numbered and stamped cover. The 400 orders will go in white sleeve.
More Bounce Records is back again and this time they released some real heavy hitter: “MODOGSTA” self-titled first album of the group. MODOGSTA is the alliance of three producers DJ Mofak, Dogg Master & Busta Brown.
If you like Funk, P.Funk, instrumental music flavored with some real nice talkbox & vocoder, or you’re already a fan of any of these 3 artists, then you’re definitely gonna feel this dope album.
