Bop Alloy (Substantial & Marcus D) - The Art of Work
Nice guitar rhythms and flow on this smooth joint. Can’t ever go wrong with these two.. both seriously under appreciated and under exposed. Well guru can sum it up best, “the underground is where i dwell at.. it’s where i find my heaven, and where you find your hell at..”
DJ Deckstream (R.I.P.), Substantial, & Nujabes (R.I.P) - January 2000 in Asakusa
Hip Hop lost another insanely talented beat maker.
I learnt about Deckstream back in 2011 (or late 2010) while searching for HydeOut’s early vinyl releases… He was Monorsick, at that time and his remixes had deeply impressed me. I fell in love with his music’s unique style.
His biggest song with Subs is ’Home Sweet Home’ which people often mistake as being produced by Nujabes. He also produced More Than A Game & Kalitwutchuwon2 and a slew of remixes from Subs’ debut album, To This Union A Was Born (2001).
“He’s also worked with a lot of amazing artists from around the world such as Lupe Fiasco, T-Boz (of TLC), Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Verbal (of m-flo), Shing02, Nikki Jean & many more.”
Read Substantial’s heartfelt note with his feelings and memories here. That’s the source of the photo.
Very Smooth track Created by that dynamic duo we call Bop Alloy ( Marcus D and Substantial) with additional help from Mr. SOS and Cise Starr, laying homemade verses over that already amazing piano break.
