JAPEYE: Electro Boogie Mix for Cold Crush

Or DL HERE @ Cold Crush

It’s time for the next hit of Cold Crushin’ Mixes. Our guest mix this time around is taken by Radelaide funky man Japeye, who will be rocking the decks with the Cold Crush Wreckin’ Cru this Friday night. Japeye first caught our attention warming up a packed dancefloor for the man Dam Funk a few months back at The Basement. We were impressed by his smooth mixes and even smoother beats and decided he was the man to help us warm up the whole joint in our new home at Tone!

Cold Crush had a little chat with the man himself, so if you were wondering who this mysterious Japeye fellow on the poster is, read on:

Cold Crush: So yo, tell us how you got into the DJ game
Japeye: I’ve been DJing since 2001 (I think). I was throwing parties and putting on local DJ’s like HMC, Agent86, Delta, Madcap & Kim Dezen before I stepped out of the bedroom and started playing out myself.

It was hip hop I fell headfirst into — The first LP I bought on wax was Main Source – Breaking Atoms. After that I became a fiend for crews like Ultra Mags, Eric B & Rakim, Tribe, Jungle Brothers and all that native tongue good shit. The soul, jazz and funk soon followed suit digging on samples and then as I started to get a bit “wilder” on the club tip the disco, house and techno became a big part of what I was dancing too, and as a result collecting and working into my sets.

And now? You still doing the hip hop thang or what?
As a DJ I started out playing pretty much a straight mix of soul, funk and hip hop but these days I am wayyyyyy open. I have a bunch of different gigs and club nights. When I play at the Botanic (fancy cocktail bar down here) I can pretty well much spin whatever I like. It makes it nice cos I can change my bag over every week and not have to sling the shit in different order all the time. I can pack my Jazz lp’s, my soul/funk 45’s and some weeks I play straight afro latin / brasilian music all night.

Variety is the spice baby! What’s the scene like down in Adelaide, is there much going on?
Adelaide’s music scene is nice. Some crazy talented producers all live here. HMC, Benny Badge, Carter Brothers, Cuckoo Music Crew, SidWho & my boy Eric The Falcon is killing it right now on the “I am T Pain” phone app. My only real criticism about the ‘ghost town’ is that its only been in recent years that the weekend warriors that occupy the clubs are less open to hearing a DJ break a new record. Most kids would like their own soundtrack to their night out, plug in their ipod and drink some cheap piss. I am actually not 100% sure whether I was like that when I was young or not. But it bothers me now.

So with a name like Japeye, have you ever been accused of… TAKING THE PISS?
Well I am actually 1/3 Japanese. How insensitive of you!

Just kidding pal….. arrrgh the ole Japeye question. Its just nickname that stuck for a bunch of reasons. I think being high for an extended duration in the earlier days contributed to it greatly. However, I have been working on some edits that I plan to put out on a bootleg cd under a new guise being “Slim Charles”. Stay tuned. Hopefully that takes off so I can kick Japeye to the curb. It’ll make my Mum happier.

We caught your set supporting Dam Funk at the Basement a few months back.
That was a killer night no?

Yea man. Dam is fresh. Such a talented and positive artist. Both of his shows in Adelaide and Sydney were nuts. The solos, the costume changes, his voice. The whole experience was really refreshing as I saw it open up a lot of younger heads to music I push a lot back home in Adelaide and care about people hearing in the clubs. Props to Niche Productions for getting him out.

Who else have you played with over the years?
Over the years, a whole bunch. Some of my favourites have been just warm up sets for live acts like Roy Ayers & Sharon Jones. My favourite club set support when I actually nailed it, didn’t fuck up any mixes, didn’t get harassed about someone’s name not being on the door, the turntables weren’t feeding back etc would have to go to a night when I DJ’d before Quantic at Rocket Bar.

What’s up with this mix you’ve put together for us?
Well… I checked your website and saw a bunch of tunes that I was planning on playing but was beaten to it and I didn’t want to double up… SO…. I ended up just putting a lil electro boogie mix together. The 2nd tune I only just found. Crazy rare 7″, some gospel shit. There’s a few shocker mixes… but I like to call them “disco blends”. Some tunes I may play on the night, some tunes you hopefully haven’t heard before. Either way I hope you feel it.

A little rare gospel shit never goes astray! What can we expect from you at Cold Crush this Friday night?
It’s the day after my birthday, Simon Caldwell is one of my favourite DJ’s and there’s a bunch of crew up from Adelaide so I plan on getting pretty special between the bar and the dancefloor. Set wise, who knows… I’ll see what crew are in the club when I am playing and take it from there as I’ll have a bunch of music on me. Bboys beware…. I am the master of killing the cypher if its preventing the ladies from gettin down.

Good Vibrations 2011, Sydney
Review by Ray Mann.


Is it possible for an artist to convey their art in a festival setting, or do munters just wanna have fun?

I was asked by Soul of Sydney to review Good Vibrations 2011 “as an artist”. I took that to mean: “Don’t pretend to be a music journalist, just write as someone who makes music.” I know, for myself at least, that festival gigs are very different to pub or club gigs, in many ways. Subtlety can go right out the window, messages tend to be dumbed-down, and holding the crowd can be like riding the tide. For me, Good Vibrations 2011 was a mixed bag of wave-riders and wave-makers – and a non-stop rainy day that turned my fingers to prunes…

I arrived just in time to catch Aloe Blaac, who has honey for a voice, a dress sense I approve of, and a slinky backing band. Every second song was a soul classic, given the lite-and-easy treatment, including ‘Love And Happiness’ (minus the swagger) and a slow-jam version of ‘Billie Jean‘. I’m not sure what Aloe Blaac’s ‘Soul 101’ show does with or for the genre, and it didn’t engage me here any more than it did at Sydney Festival a few weeks earlier, but it seemed to go down a treat with this festival crowd.

At the other end of the spectrum was the one and only Erykah Badu, the single reason I (and, apparently, a lot of other people) was even at the festival. From the moment she stepped onto the stage (after 15 years and 20 minutes), everyone single excited one of us in the audience knew we were in the presence of not merely a singer, but an artist. Even with her own extensive catalogue, Ms Badu delves into her musical influences like veering off on tangents in a conversation. Ms Badu, who was an MC long before she came to prominence as a neo-soul singer, references old-school hip-hop in the middle of edgy renditions of her own tracks, both older (‘On & On’, ‘Danger’) and newer (‘Window Seat’). What’s most fascinating about Erykah Badu’s performance is the organic way she pulls those hip hop samples into the mix of her own output, driving the show less like a singer and more like a DJ. If you can’t see Erykah’s hands, you’re missing the show: remixing her own songs on the fly, directing her tight-as band to stop on a dime, jumping back and forth between different sections of different songs seemingly on a whim, even playing drums on her MPC – everything on that stage, from her amazing voice to her storytelling to her body, is a tool she picks up and uses sparingly, as the moment dictates. The effect of all of this is that you cannot take your eyes off her: this is a true artist, a woman celebrating her femaledom as much as her love of hip hop (and what a sight it was, watching her drop the entire Ice Cube verse from NWA’s ‘Gangsta Gangsta’, repeating the line “life ain’t nuthin’ but bitches and money” with who-knows-how-much irony, if any). It’s that same spontaneity that saw her suddenly launch into a diatribe about ‘Occupation’ toward the end of an already-running-late set – but dammit, folks been waiting a long time for her to come out here only to play the one show, and she was clearly making the most of it.

I’m no stranger to the jam-heavy live show (to say the least), but Fat Freddy’s Drop took a while to get warmed up, even for me. There were some overly long stretches of little more than a sequenced beat and that tasty horn section just kinda hanging out, but with little real movement. Singer Joe Dukie’s sublime voice graced the set right off the bat with ‘Flashback’, but his butter was spread too thinly across that raggamuffin (see what I did there? Yeow – that’s why I’m no music writer…!).

By contrast, musically an ocean apart while physically only a stage apart, the segues in the Bag Raiders set reached their destination almost before they’d begun. These are a couple of music geeks who can really play and can’t really sing, and are having fun with both of those attributes – and without a laptop in sight. In between singles ‘Shooting Stars’ and ‘Sunlight’ were some moments that were downright ultra-lounge-karaoke. Their live set felt like a peek into their bedroom jam session: two mates who could be making any type of music they chose, they just happened to choose sweet dance pop.

Nas and Damian Marley made being epic look effortless. Backed by a full band, including a guy whose only job was to wave a giant Lion Of Judah flag throughout the set, Nas and Damian Marley put on a powerful show with a message that permeated every song without ever becoming preachy. Apart from some “When I say ‘Hip’, you say…” action from Nas early in the set, there were no cliches here, everything familiar but nothing obvious, and they owned the crowd from the (late) start to the (even later) finish. Tracks from their ‘Distant Relatives’ collaboration were interspersed with each of the artists dropping hits from his individual catalogue. The crowd blew up when hit with modern classics ‘Hip Hop is Dead‘ and ‘Welcome To Jamrock’; and there was no less fervour for newer tracks like ‘As We Enter’, one of the many examples of the fresh reggae/hip hop crossover these guys have been lauded for creating. If I weren’t an Erykah fan, I’d say Nas and Damian Marley’s set was the best thing that happened on this day – I was so moved, inside and out, that I completely forgot to check out Kelis. And as if they hadn’t rocked my world enough, they closed their set with Damien Senior’s “Could You Be Loved”, only one of the most glorious songs of all time.

Oh that Ludacris, such a character… I was curious to see how his larger-than-life persona would translate to his stage show. His set was an abridged Ludacristory, comprising a verse and a chorus of every single song he ever released. Good for fans and short attention spans – which, by this late stage of the day, was probably as much as many folks could handle.

Phoenix, that charming Frenchy fivesome (I’d thought there were only four?), offered up a yum-cha selection of tracks from across all their albums, against a dynamic black-and-white backlit setpiece that showed off just how much of an animal their drummer is. You may be wondering, “Why is this guy reviewing a synth-rock band in a soul/hip hop blog?” The two brothers from Phoenix are actually soul music connoisseurs; you can hear it across their albums. Ironically, I missed ‘Too Young’ coz I’m too old, and therefore too tired to stay at Good Vibes any longer, and not long after ‘It’s Never Been Like That’ I finally called it a day.

Many thanks to  Soul of Sydney for this opportunity – and for my first-ever Good Vibes experience.

Soul/Hip Hop: Vinia Mojica "Sands Of Time"


[tweetmeme source=”soulofsydney” only_single=false]

A name that was to become well known in Hip Hop circles her singing debut was a cameo on Jungle Brothers “Acknowledge Your Own History”

http://ia360709.us.archive.org/1/items/JungleBrothersAcknowledgeYourOwnHistory_973/JungleBrothersAcknowledgeYourOwnHistory.mp3″
(taken from the album Done by the Forces of Nature)

Two long years later she reappeared to make her most notorious performance on this

Shortly after “Roller Skating Jam” was released she again showed up in the form of a cameo on A Tribe Called Quest‘s Low End Theory album.

http://ia360704.us.archive.org/7/items/ATribeCalledQuestVersesFromTheAbstract/ATribeCalledQuestVersesFromTheAbstract.mp3″
(“Verses From the Abstract”)

Initially released on Bobbito’s shortly lived Fruitmeat label this record was so incredibly slept on when it was released I couldn’t find one place that has it for sale today – not Discogs, not ebay, not gemm – nobody has it.  Discogs didn’t even have a listing for it.

I did see a Discogs listing for the original original version of this song that was actually a record put out by L.A. based rapper Kombo featuring Miss Mojica, but the version featured here is a different mix than the one featured on the Kombo 12″, although both are produced by Geology.

The record looks like this
