Gummy Soul – 93 still: Instrumentals [FULL STREAM]

Gummy Soul - 93 still - Instrumentals

We really love these cats from Gummy Soul. Over the past year or so, we have brought you a few of their releases and are really excited about this one, particularly because we are huge Souls of Mischief fans too (shout out to Tajai, Opio, Phesto and A-Plus). This album is an amazingly funky and jazzy journey through SOM’s first album ’93 to Infinity, a bonafide classic in its own right. Listen to this while thinking of a master plan late nights, cleaning up or taking that long drive. Peep it here through stream and when you like it, please purchase it and support this enterprising and talented group.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of 93 ‘Til Infinity, Souls of Mischief graciously opened their vaults to give Gummy Soul the exclusive acapellas of their classic album, to remix for the first time ever.

As the framework of the project, Gummy Soul’s Wally Clark, dug through his extensive record collection, and gathered all of the songs that were sampled to make hip-hop in 1993. Jazz, Funk and Soul songs, used to create classics from Digable Planets, Snoop Dogg and Black Moon, were then re-contextualized to provide familiar, yet updated versions of some of hip-hop’s most beloved material.

“I wanted to take all of the records that people used back then, and create new compositions using the same techniques they were using – such as filtered bass lines, classic drum breaks, echo-y horns – to make an album that sounds like it could have been released in 1993,” says Clark. “It was an amazing exercise trying to capture the essence of a sacred time in hip-hop. It also allowed me to playfully use samples that are normally deemed off-limits, because they are too well known.”

Be on the look out for Soul’s of Mischief’s new album “There Is Only Now,” produced by Adrian Younge, as well as the 93 ‘Til documentary, featuring Questlove, Mos Def, 9th Wonder, Pete Rock and more.
