Oh No “Exodus Into Unheard Rhythms” [Stones Throw Records]

Oh No has crafted an album where all of the source material for the beats has been sampled from the catalogue of composer Galt MacDermot. MacDermot is best known for his work in the late 60′s-70′s, most notably his contributions to the writing of the musical “Hair”. After the success of “Hair” MacDermot went on to start a label Kilmarnock Records, continuing to create music that had the theatrical components of a broadway show mixed with the groove of R’n'B & Funk. “Exodus…” contains much of that same crossbreed of theatrics & groove. Oh No cut & pastes a range of sounds that are unique to the ear of the average HipHop listener. True his style owes some of it’s flair to his older brother Madlib & his sometime collaborator J Dilla, but Oh No still puts his own stamp on the production. A number of MC’s contribute to the album, all of whom put forth very solid efforts and truly help color this project with their rhymeschemes and subject matter. Excellent effort all around. -Mr. Lucky
