Happy Anniversary “2001”

18 years ago..I was running around all over trying to find my place,  paying my dues in this complex puzzle called show business plus everyday life in general. A couple of years earlier, I heard rumblings of a  release in the making and as a result was very blessed to be at the right place at the right time to land a gig as an intern at Interscope; just in time for this iconic release to be unearthed (Thank You Mike Heat for the opportunity and believing in me …Salute). What’s funny is that I wasn’t looking for a gig.. It just happened because I was looking for white label promos to break. It was very organic how it all happened. Bear in mind, I was moonlighting at Virgin-EMI (but managed to work equally hard for both imprints and other indie projects). I was very excited to work behind the scenes in street promotion and doing the leg work right next to an awesome collective for this release and future classics for the label. I still listen to this album during my workouts and a sea of memories are instantly revisited. One of the most sonically tuned and clean productions that raised the bar. Happy Anniversary #drdre  #2001 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 #unique74 #djaski #flashbackfriday

Mecca and The Soul Brother | 20

Pete+Rock++CL+Smooth+Pete+Rock+CL

“Mecca and The Soul Brother” was a very important album during the time of its release 20 years ago (where does the time go..) and still remains celebrated today. It explored a very wide spectrum of Soul, Jazz, Funk on an aggressive level but it bears an assortment of moods in each of those generes under the Hip Hop drawing board. Rhythmically, it was raw yet smooth while balancing its cutting edge. This album made me step my game up in terms of record digging and sound exploration.
