T-White – “Gift Vol. 5!, The” – [Fatbeats]

twhite_giftvol5h_101b
Instrumental hip-hop, short and upbeat, slip the needle
scratch the service. The dance floor is denied in these
short cuts with long memories (did I hear Flip Wilson as
Geraldine on “Discovery”). “Eternal Lee” has some pretty
majestic moves inside, “Ow!” doesn’t hurt (although a
cartoon baby bird was crushed by the heavy drum and piano
drop on top), a French discussion gets woven in between the
beats on that. The lead-off track makes you think DJ Shadow
meets comedy, samples are less ear-popping after that, but
definitely a fun and creative vibe. Yeah, there’s cowbell
sampled and apparently some organic elements as well
(behold the Old Nasty Organ), hard to pull everything
apart. T-White is a Chicago operative…damn shame KFJC’s
Spiderman is not around for this House Shoes party mix.
