Shadez of Brooklyn | ’Change’ | 12" | 1996
Released on Pandemonium Records (Wreckordz) in 1996, this 12" from Shadez of Brooklyn was one of my favorite independent records. I got put on to them through their connection with Evil Dee & Mr. Walt (Da Beatminerz) who handled the bulk of their production. I didn’t trust my memory, so I checked online and it listed the crew as Chocolate Tye, Rev. Al, Tee Black, and Rambo. There were multiple pressings of this 12", each with ’Change’ on the A-Side and ’When It Rains It Pours’ on the B-Side (produced by Rich Blak). Perhaps most known from Evil Dee running their tracks on mixtapes, they also had a 12" for ’Calm Unda Pressure’, ’How It’s Done bw Paradise & Wanted Men’ and most recently (2010), Chopped Herring Records released an EP called ’Pandemonium’ which featured 6 dope tracks. Get ‘em all!
