Aardvarck / RJ Valeo / Mint Condition / Teedra Moses

Dag! Yo! Okay Friday all ready… I’m strugglin’ just tryin’ to do one post a week. Shiat. Okay so its been grey in SF for a couple daze during what has otherwise been an incredibly sunny and warm past couple of weeks… so these picks are kinda on that vibe…

First up…

Aardvarck… 1/3 of Relaxo Abstracto the other two members being the ill Caron brothers… David and Sandor respectively. (They deserve a post of their own in the future… Sandor’s album Harmonica and Cross was absolutely dope. A gem I would’ve never found outside the Betalounge Record Club)… Aardvarck is equally ill. I have a couple 12s by him and mostly he represents on that minimal idm sort o tip…

This cut is one of my absolute favs and probably closest to the Glitch Hop format.

Aardvarck – Steps
from Find the Cow (Delsin) 2002

Gorgeous moody bassline shit from the Netherlands.

Cop it.

RJ Valeo’s album September was released back in 2003... His 6th… though the first one he actually released properly, the rest are very hard to find small distros that I’m still hoping he’ll repackage and release at some point.

Here is a bit of Valeo’s sonic bliss…

RJ Valeo – Saturday Afternoon
from September (Type) 2003

Type is John Xela’s label.

R&B… Teedra Moses' album Complex Simplicity has been around for about a year... I was never really feeling it... but the lead single… Be Your Girl has been unofficially remixed by UK producer Dodge… and his version is fuggin’ ridic! Unfortunately my efforts trying to track down the vinyl have been for not and I have all but given up trying. Dunno, if the label is going to give it a headnod and a proper release. Doubt it... Could happen, but its on some classic 90s rnb type o vibe. Anyway heads up for that… here is the original…

from Complex Simplicity (2004)

And the JIZOINT!!$%&(%$@*# of the week is from the new Mint Condition album… called Livin’ the Luxury Brown… and I AM feelin’ this one… there hasn’t really been much quality adult R&B coming out lately (The Mario album had a couple ill singles but the album was flat, same with Amerie), so this is a breath of fresh air. I’m definitely not into every track on this one, like I’ve said before some of these cats lose me at the bridge. But if your hungry for soul and R&B or just want to kick it with your girl and she’s tired of you playin’ that R.Kelly toss your salad cut… definitely peep it.

So THIS is my funkin joint… Love it. Love it.

Mint Condition – I’m Ready
from Livin’ the Luxury Brown (2005)

Filthy good.

Also, sidenote… if your in SF and into Drum and Bass… scratch that… I mean music… the Groundscore crew is reppin’ at The Haight Street Fair (Haight and Masonic) on Sunday… come down, get your drink on… throw your ‘bows… and dance in the sun. Ill be passed out by the bassbin.
