Chris Read: The Diary Volume 1.5

Chris Read, o homem que se atreveu a colocar 800 temas de hip hop por ordem cronológica numa mix a todos os títulos histórica, tem nova mix na página da Music Of Substance. Desta vez, a tarefa não é menos grandiosa - Chris Read remistura uma faixa de cada um dos últimos 20 anos de história de hip hop, mas com a subtileza adicional de adaptar em cada um dos casos o estilo de produção em vigor na época em que o original foi editado. Dizem eles:

One iconic hip hop track from each of the last 20 years, remixed paying tribute to the prouction style and sampling trends popular at the time of the original release. From the James Brown influenced style of the late 80s, to the jazz sampling trends of the mid '90s, to the iconic and distinct sounds of DJ Premier and Jay Dee, all the cornerstones of the genre's development are touched upon.

Tarefa grandiosa, de facto. Eis o que alguns notáveis têm a dizer:

"This CD just shows how much Chris Read knows about historic Hip Hop production techniques - It's just a shame he wasn't producing this stuff during the eras that he's covering as we would probably rate the man as being up there with Paul C, Pete Rock, Premier and all! - I can't think of another Hip Hop CD I've played so much in years!" (Andy Smith - Portishead)

"Chris continues the rap anthology concept of his super-dope 'The Diary' megamix in the shape of a remix project, re-lacing acapellas from 89-2009 with historically accurate beats. 'The Diary 1.5' serves as a great platform for Chris to showcase his ample beat-making skills whilst referencing those who've inspired him." (DJ Woody – Former World ITF Champion)

"Crazy! This is Rap History in the making. Chris proves his production skills on this one to the fullest. A wonderful and refreshing journey through all eras of hip hop. Double thumbs up!" (Marc Hype – MPM Records / Former ITF Champion)
