The first collaboration between rapper Kay the Aquanaut and producer Kitz Willman. Ancient Fish from the Northwest features Kay’s ubiquitous flows over Kitz’s dynamic production. Kay in particular is fired up on this release, spitting some of his most fiery bars like on “Stockholm Freestyle” when he says “there were never any ‘good old’ days!” or the anthemic refrain of “DIY til I DIE!” in “IceAge Galleria.” These 11-tracks are weird, feisty, and raw. The album is for anarchist minded hip-hop fans that favor underground and experimental approaches to the music. Forward-thinking and present-minded. This is the Ancient Fish. Cassettes were issued by French label Hello.L.A. but tapes are sold out.
胎児の夢 by Sai Yoshiko (1977)
Hip-hop legends Freestyle Fellowship (Myka 9, Aceyalone, Self Jupiter, P.E.A.C.E. backed by DJ Kilu) at the top of their game at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles on July 16th, 1998. The way the crowd is going off finishing bars and even shouting full verses… goosebumps! An electric atmosphere like none other. I also love how many people are clambering sidestage to the point of being on it. Looks more like Code Orange playing This Is Hardcore than any hip-hop shows I’ve personally been to. Mark this video as aspirational!
