Three Flavours

After FlyLo dropped his twitter milestone collection of what goes on in his head I was feeling a lil' more hip hop stuff. Unfortunately as I was looking through my stuff I've posted about 80% of it... or so it seemed before I remembered a recent addition. More on that later, but anyways as the title suggests, today I'm gonna show off three different flavours of hip hop stuff I have lying around.

Starting with a number from FlyLo's free .zipped idea box, he tweeted again not long after saying it would be more like the old school FlyLo sound, and he's not wrong. It might not be proper old school 1983 era FlyLo, but it certainly has an edge of Los Angeles to it. Would love to see it fleshed out into a full tune.

Now, onto that other recent addition I mentioned. The Metal Fingers Presents Special Herbs series is golden if you're lookin' for some more tasty instrumentals. Here's another of MF Doom's self produced tunes, this one's the instrumental to Doomsday from his debut LP. As good as that is the instrumental is far too sweet to pass up.

I never realised how far NOW had strayed from his original sound until I put him in with this crowd. Taken from his album Thought So... which was recorded on a massive roadtrip from Leeds to Ibiza, so there's a much more personal feel to a lot of the tunes I haven't heard anywhere else. The couple seconds of chit chat and laughter at the end does wonders for the atmosphere and makes the album an overall feel good experience.
