Album Review

Dj Frane – “Journey to The Planet of Birds ” – [None]

cinder   7/11/2008   CD, Hip Hop

DJ Frane, self-described as a “mellow, stoned-out version of the Bomb Squad or late 80’s Dr. Dre, or maybe Prince Paul meets Pink Floyd.” A super relaxing, chill sampled-up hip hop release. It’s the final installment for his trilogy “Beats to Blaze To” series. Cool fact – the piano used on this album was inherited from his 101 year old grandmother! DJ Frane uses all sorts of samples from spacey lounge sounds, jazz piano, electro funk, asian instrumentation, vocal clips of all sorts (jazz singer, robot, beat poet) and of course – bird sounds! If you dig DJ Shadow, DJ Krush or Nightmares on Wax, this will have you head knodding like no tomorrow. The whole thing flows together, really nicely, so fade outs should be used!
