Classic Solesides tape showcasing the beatmaking and scratching talents of resident producers Chief Xcel and Dj Shadow. Xcel features Gift of Gab and Lateef on the mic, while Shadow quite capably goes it alone. For 1996, this was some next level shit. Actually, now that I'm listening to it again I retract that. Correction: this IS some next level shit. Period.
This tape just reinforces my conviction that producers need to bring back the art of the sample. Check it.

The Grooverobbers/Chief Xcel


  1. i completely agree with you about the art of the sample... bring it back, bring it, bring it back.

  2. It's good to know I'm not alone out there!
