300 Colored & Numbered Limited Edition
Hip hop music innovator and hard rock funk scientist DJ Moe Love is bringing the true UltraMagnetic sound. Before the Madd Lib, and J-Dilla movement, nothing was moving funkier and faster in the golden era then UltraMagnetic MC's!! In the 80's on the "nine" block on Washington Avenue in the south Bronx at Moe's cousin's Patrick and Cedric "Ced-Gee" Miller's house aka Ultra-Lab, is where Moe Love found his calling as a beat digger, DJ and Producer.
Simultaneously He watched the formation of krs One and Scott La Rock go from the Celebrity Three to Boogie Down Productions,while watching his cousin Ced-Gee produce B.D.P.'s "Criminal Minded" album to aligning with Ced-Gee, Kool Keith, T.R. Love and Original Ronnie T. to form UltraMagnetic MC's.
Moe Love's early passion for record digging consisted of rare jazz,funk and soul breaks but also the odd sound library and spoken word records is what helped shape the UltraMagnetic sound!! Moe Love's sample chops and mastery of the SP 1200 is unmatched and distinctly funky along with his trademark scratches is what keeps the essence of the hip-hop on fire.
Moe Love's sound can be heard on many classics from UltraMagnetic MC'S, Tim Dog, King Tee, BeastieBoys, Dr. Dooom, Slaughter House Cartel, Tricky, Demagogue and the Prodigy, as well in video games by E.A. Sports and Rock Star and block buster movie Charlie's Angels.
Diggin In The Tapes/I Ain't Dead Yet picks up where the UltraMagnetic MC's Four Horsemen album left off. It's a collection of unheard SP 1200 floppy discs recorded to cassette tape originally then professionally mixed and mastered to wax!
The album sounds so organically dope you understand Moe's importance in Ultra. Moe Love adds his classic rugged scratches,cuts and left field sounds, over slick chopped saucy sweet grooves layered over hard concrete drums.
This album is a journey from the silver wall papered Ultra Lab days in the Bronx to his Forte Greene Brooklyn park jam experiences. This album is highly anticipated and brings the true heads who have been craving the original UltraMagnetic sound to the table!!
Limited colored vinyl pressing, 300 only. This will be one of those records that will find a place in your collection under timeless classic.
