@ shtove... here's just the first few bars, the rhymes are so much more complex than endrhymes of the vowel phoneme.

This is how I represent I rock the mic one hundred ten percent
It's intimate, I keeps the party moving like a imigrant
Binary Star, superstar its no coincidence
Every verse is intricate, this ain't a circus in a tent
We don't get down like them clowns and the kids
I'm use to being indegent, who said its all about the Benjamin's?

@ lucky, I like i but why's he got such a silly face? 6.5/10.

another pillar of hiphop, the beatmaking. I find it fascinating the range of sources that DJs (DJs, not producers) find material to sample and make a beat from. here, a french guy went to vietnam and recorded some traditional vietnamese music, and made it into a load of beats. this is one.

I see what you mean. But I guess that's poetry, not lyrics. For me the music is the main thing, and lyrics should be simple, with a clear, consistent metaphor. And it should be a criminal offence to rhyme fire with desire!

I like that. Only a sample, so not complete. 7/10.

From the obscure originals file:

Hehe. Excellent. Would love to hear that live, played by humans. 9/10.

Position switch on Amy Winehouse - thought Rehab was her greatest, but this ...

Yip, I likes that. Wexford? Last Irish track that made me smile was **** Your Honda Civic! Good singer, but wonder how it would sound live - so 8/10.

Good advice for every team Ireland beats:

Hackney :p
Saw an interview with him, he's got the weirdest voice ever - he was born/raised in Hackney, but moved to Ireland aged like 8, then came back here aged 18 so he's got a proper mix of Cockney and Irish

The Jacksons - Blame It on the Boogie - 7/10

Oddly enough, a 1970's Tootsie Roll Pop commercial came on just as I was about to play this. lol

Not my favorite from the Jacksons, also, wasn't it originally a song by an English songwriter?

I stumbled on this Russian band's self-titled SP a few days ago and I'm enjoying it. There are only two tracks, but you can hear strong potential. They didn't have any videos up yet, so I decided to make one just for the track.

Don't know about the english songwriter - tell me more.

The Russian song is straight out of the early 80s, could have been on a U2 album: drums, bass, rhythm guitar, a bit punk. No melody, so 6/10. Russians are a bit cocky these days, a bit KGB glory hunting, so I'd expect them to come up with something stronger.

Soviet funk:

Okay, so oddly enough the song "Blame It on the Boogie" was originally by English-songwriter Mick Jackson. Here's what I found on Wikipedia - "Despite the Mick Jackson original reach a #61 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1978, Epic Records that month released the Jacksons' version of "Blame It on the Boogie" as the advance single from the Destiny album."

As for the Russian band, as I mentioned these are their first recordings, and though raw, I hear their potential. I like what they wrote on their website, where you can download their SP for free - "We prefer not to focus on one musical direction, so we trying to experiment with the sound - sometimes it's noise, sometimes it's psychedelic and sometimes it's indie. The main idea of the band is to express the important things in simple terms, but do not become commonplace at the same time."

Mick Jackson - that's a coincidence.

You're supposed to comment, rate, and post new stuff ...

Following up on the U2 point:

Following up on the U2 point:
My apologies, but you apparently wanted to know more so I posted what I found off track. From what I've read, the producer of the Jacksons' album actually brought them the original to hear before they recorded their version.

As for the U2 song ..

U2 - I Will Follow - 5/10

It sounds nothing like the song I posted before, but it does remind me of a few songs from The Cult. Pretty average 80's sound.

Rare Soviet Jazz - Funk Top #8 - 9/10

I enjoy just about anything jazzy or bluesy. Reminds me of going to the clubs in Chicago with friends, having a drink or two, enjoying the music and sometimes even going up to play. I haven't done that in years ... I can't even remember the last time I picked up my bass guitar or played my keys.

Here's a favorite of mine from my favorite band, Venus. I could never get enough of their twisted sound that inspired me so much. I can't believe this album is over a decade old now.

Hey, just getting you used to the thread.

Yes, twisted. Can't rate it because it's brilliant but confusing. Tried to follow the lyrics - red eyed girl in an orange dress, then something about rabbits?

Reminds me of Trent Reznor. Just googled this:

ps. I think the early U2 style - maybe not that particular song - is exactly what the Russian band is doing.

I wouldn't go to that carnival. 2/10.

Can't help it - always reminds me of this:

You said brazilian - that's porn!

You posted a brilliant song from these guys ages ago. This one is not really African. I like it, but 7/10.

From David Fanshawe, the original World Music guy in the '60s -a bit odd:

10/10

You have to admire the love David has for music. He took in so much from different cultures to create his own sound in order to give people a while new perspective of music from around the world. This one in particular though makes me think that it could have been the opening theme for some awesome 1960's television program. I didn't think anyone would put his stuff up on here, well done.

Here's one from one of my favorite up and coming Chicago bands that were recently signed ...

To Destroy A City - Philosophy of a Knife
