Songodsuns/Darkleaf/Mumbles

Afternoon Focus/Caution 12"


This split 12" came out in 2000 as part of Ubiquity Records' No Categories series (I think - please correct me if I'm wrong about that). It's a strong slab of wax featuring 2Mex, DJ E.S.P. and Nobody (AKA the Songodsuns) performing the bouncing "Afternoon Focus"; with the abstract, Mumbles-produced Darkleaf track "Caution" on the reverse. Both songs count among my favorites for the artists involved. Nobody is an awesome producer, managing to blend layers of sound without it turning into a muddy mess, and 2Mex's style flows perfectly over his beats. Mumbles, best known for producing the entire Aceyalone album A Book of Human Language, crafted a beat here that fits Darkleaf's unique and uncompromising style like a glove. Vocal and Instrumentals included.
