So with this in mind, my instinct to dissect and forensically examine the music I truly love was too hard to resist and ultimately, this led to what you have here. These are two albums that to me, if I may put them in a modern perspective, bang relentlessly and thoroughly in every way and I love them so hard. It felt like it would be too easy to just snatch straight up loops from them (although that would sound wonderful of course), and I had the thought of making some re-edits in some way or another, but I decided on reconstructing them both and blending them together in that way.
This is produced from well over 750 chops of both albums combined.
If you haven't yet heard 'Electric Mud' by Muddy Waters, or 'The Howlin' Wolf Album', I cannot recommend them highly enough. Try and find them on vinyl if you can- trust me. If not, get yourself the CDs. If you are already familiar with both albums, I hope you enjoy what I've created from them.
Every chop made with care and respect.
Every step programmed with love."

Doisn, that opening Grazing in the Grass boogaloo is so solid, who is it??
thanks for listening man, the track in question is by El Gran Conjunto Universal titled Suelta el Ye Ye Matilu
Steve, that mix was dope. I love how you got off the records from J-Rocc's IG. There's something very economical about that. Does he really have a jungle mix of The Nod Factor up there? Respect to the man.I'd love a download link, if you want to share. I'd listen to this out and about.
Thanks a lot. Appreciate the kind words.
I ripped the amen break, baseline, and vox samples straight from a 'Jungle Tools' break record to a Boss RC 30 looper pedal. Then triggered the airhorn from the MPC.
Edit: I believe I just made it downloadable on Soundcloud? LMK if it does not work.
This a really good mix Ketan! Can tell a lot of thought and work went into this, a great balance of styles, sounds and textures.
Thanks, Dude. A lot of thought in the songs and the order - the mixing was surprisingly easy after that.
