Playing tracks by
Madlib, King Solomon, BILLY STRANGE, Bumpy Knuckles, J Rocc and more.
I decided to go back and pay tribute to one of my heroes, Mark Gonzales. His skateboarding and art all have rhythm, and I just thought how music and skateboarding go hand in hand. Think of this as a track to bump while you're zooming through traffic, or rather what the Gonz or Jason Lee might listen to while hitting a late night sesh. With Jazz influenced tracks from Madlib, J-Rocc and Bob James (Arrested Development Sample) , Hip Hop rarities from ATCQ featuring Jay Dee, Da Bush Babees and Bumpy Knuckles instrumentals, Rocksteady from Justin Hines and a Reggae influenced track from J Live as well as a head nodder to boot, Funk from Greyboy feat. Bart Davenport redoing Cymande, Lack of Afro turning Arctic Monkeys into a drum fest, Ethiopian sounds from Mulata Astatke, plus remixes of James Brown, Jimmy Smith and Bio Ritmo from Kenny Dope, Lyrics Born and E's E respectively, wacky Ernest Bourgnine soundtrack Funk Rock and finishing up with some Ska. All Live, all one take. Enjoy.
