Chopped Herring: CHPNR001 ft. Phase N Rhythm

One of those records I was searching for years before I got one for a decent price. Here is your chance to get at least two of the greatest random rap tracks on vinyl. Chopped Herring Records presents: Phase N Rhythm and their Paul C heavy hitters "Brainfood" and "Hyperactive".

"Just before they signed the deal with Tommy Boy in 1989 there was a flood in Rhythm’s basement where they recorded all their tracks and a bunch of copies of the first 12” (200 or so!!) were destroyed, as well as a healthy chunk of Rhythm’s record collection and most importantly the reels of all the tracks they were working on for the Tommy Boy album. Everything was lost!!

The only thing that remains are the 2 DATS we have used for this vinyl release. After 25 years in the vaults, surviving record deals, floods, bad management, bad pressings and bad DAT machines we present ‘Phase n Rhythm – The Force of the Matrix EP’ which includes recordings from the original studio DAT’s of ‘Hyperactive’ and ‘Brainfood’ at their original BPM as well as ‘The Force of the Matrix’ which has never been leaked or heard outside of the boys themselves. Also included are the dub versions of ‘Matrix’ and ‘Hyperactive’ as well as the acapella of ‘Hyperactive’ which appears on the now grail-ish debut single on Funky Tune Records aka Rhythm’s mom’s spot!" [source & read more]

A: The Force Of The Matrix
A: Brainfood
A: The Force Of The Matrix (Dub)
B: Hyperactive
B: Hyperactive (Dub)
B: Hype-apella

A couple of weeks ago I already posted some details about the "Gone Diggin" 10inch vinyl single (special edition on yellow vinyl). This is now available directly via SOS store but don't think there isn't more to grab!!!

First of all we have the "Gone Diggin Fisher Price Remix" by DJ Format limited to 200 copies only. Second the signed connoisseur sets on 5" or 10" inch wax limited to 10 copies.

I personally decided to go with the collectors set to get the original and remix tracks all together.

SOS has teamed up with Oxygen & DJ Format to provide a truly incredible bonus record for the "Diggin By Law" remix project. DJ Format in action on the stunning Fisher Price Remix of "Gone Diggin'"and the bonus cut "33.3".

"Once again Mr. Krum has the art design locked as we push the vinyl boundaries again with this insane 5" picture disc. We've spared no expense to provide something unique and ensured the quality of this record is beyond that of anyone else in the vinyl game right now. Those familiar with our releases know the deal!"

Chopped Herring: CHNBA001 ft. North Bronx Alliance / Aiello Wilson

Hello everybody! I am back from vacation and definitely forced to update the blog with all the latest releases.

The first and most unexpected release is "The NY Kings EP" featuring 6 tracks from Aiello Wilson and the North Bronx Alliance (K-Black & Cypher).

The track "Black Soil" became available on a very rare 12" vinyl single back in 1997 but the N.B.A. EP never made it. Only about 10-12 Test Pressings existing. Finally most tracks are now officially available except "Live '97"(hopefully next time :)).

A: Black Soil by Aiello ft. N.B.A.
A: Black Caesar by N.B.A.
A: Nobody Can Save U by N.B.A.
B: 80 Proof Rhymes by Aiello
B: NY Kings by N.B.A.
B: The Gamble Pt. 2 by N.B.A.

Producer: DJ Rob Dinero

The EP is limited to 300 copies (75 on purple/white, 75 on orange/black, 150 on black vinyl). All colored copies are already sold out. Here are some additional background infos provided by Bob of Chopped Herring Records: "All four artists grew up in the Castle Hill/Soundview area of the Bronx. They started making tracks on a basic home studio set-up consisting of an MPC60 and a borrowed keyboard. They recorded the first and only official single at Database Studios in the Bronx - and as quickly as it started it was over. The next release was never fully pressed and the group split up to pursue their own careers mostly outside of the music industry. DJ Rob Dinero went on to work with Big L and actually recorded the vocals for 'Flamboyant', 'Platinum Plus' and 'The Games', which were taken from one of many mix tapes that he dropped throughout the 90s. He was not credited for 'Platinum Plus' and 'The Games' and there seems to have been some trickery involved in obtaining these vocal tracks which Rob certainly didn't want to extrapolate on - but after much prodding he revealed that a certain record label used some very dubious tactics to obtain the masters at a very 'reasonable' price. Rob had been working with Big L right up to his tragic death in 1999, preparing the DATs for his live sets, most notably the bootlegged Live From Amsterdam 1998 show."

Between 1992 and 1996 K-Def had an impressive number of production credits on releases by Lords Of The Underground, Real Live, A.D.O.R.  and Da Youngsta's.

Whereas most heads name K-Def in one sentence with Premo, Pete Rock, Marley Marl, and a few others his number of vinyl releases was "relatively small" - until now. In co-operation with Redefinition Records or Slice Of Spice Records K-Def drops the bombs like every second. 

THANK YOU!!!
