Del the Funky Homosapien, Jurassic 5, and The Gorillaz; what do these hip hop legends have in common? They have all left a mark by being legendary beat makers and story tellers. Now I am not talking about Rap music, I am talking about Hip Hop music. See, I do not consider them the same thing. Rap is all about the money and who has the biggest group of friends or best cars. There is no passion or, dare I say, talent involved in that style of music. Hip Hop speaks to you and takes you into the artists deepest fears and thoughts. Now I want to let you know right now, I am a huge Hip Hop fiend and I may display a small amount of bias towards this subject. That being said, you are reading this so chances are you enjoy it as well. So let me introduce you to Jazz Spastiks
I have searched for a while trying to find some information on this group of “Underground hip hop beat makers, djs and producers”. That is their words, and in fact really the only words I could find from them. I could find that they are a group from the UK though, so it has a very real sound. A sound that a live band could make and none of this twisted MIDI and Synth stuff. Now don’t get me wrong, that style of music has its place, but it is not here and Jazz Spastiks makes what they do feel so organic and home grown that you just can’t help but nod your head to the beat.
Take a listen for yourself and you can thank me later.
