Album Review

Robust & Pore – “Something to Sit On” – [GALAPAGOS4]

MSTiZA   1/5/2011   CD, Hip Hop

There is a quote on the inner sleeve that says “..filling potholes in 2011”. And I couldn’t have put it better. This release fills the gaps in Hip Hop from ’96-2010. Next time you want to reminisce on the hard styles of NY late 90s backpack styles or midwest funk grooves pick this. It is almost like a time capsule. And honestly, by the looks of the album art, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a tape dug up from the wheel well of their car trunk and it turns out they decided to release it now, you know, filing in the gaps. Robust has a laid back cadence that is more classic and laid back. Pore puts together some thick, genuine soul samples and beats that really lay the ground for Robust. I could listen to instro’s of this all day long, The beats will get the jazz/soul audiophiles ears ringing. Vox samples start off a few tracks and some short interludes. Tracks 12, 14 are mostly instrumental with samples. Track 15 ends with a ‘thank you’ outtro
