Two peices of distinct old school swag for this weekend.
The Stepkids - La La by stonesthrow
The Stepkids - Shadows On Behalf by stonesthrow
First, is the direct to vinyl recording of the Stepkids. This sounds like a really fun event. Stonesthrow and KCRW never disappoint when it comes to events like these. The Stepkids make sould music that sounds like lost 70s tracks rather than music influenced by 70s. If you played these with a much of Numero Group tracks no one would be able to tell the difference, high praise!
Only The Rugged Survive [feat. RZA] by TheRevelations
Second, is the above song. New Wu-Tang is always exciting and questionable, but this song is hot. RZA flows nicely over a nice soul sampling track. I am a big Wu-Tang fan, but 8 chambers was a mixed affair and then most of the new projects have been very spotty. Hopefully this new project will be more consistent.
