First of all, I just heard that Florida had a song sampling some italian 90′s commercial-dance music aka the lamest music ever: what-the-fuck.
Mel & Tim are from Holly Springs, Mississipi. Syl Johnson was from Holly Springs too, whoa.They moved to Chicago, met the great Gene Chandler, dropped a couple hits in the late 60′s, then they signed to Stax Records. Maybe you remember them for “Good Guys Only Win in the Movies”. I recently heard that song in “Anchorman” with Will Ferrel. I like Will Ferrel.
I’m not a Quasimoto fan, I can barely tolerate his voice for one verse. Beats are fire though. I don’t know what pot Madlib was on when he invented all that Quasimoto stuff, but I WANT THAT. Keep the Faith’s got an ill bassline. I like the way the sample is distorted and how it sounds low-fi-electro here. B-Money later used Keep the Faith for “The Prelude”, a good song from Jay Z “Kingdome Come” .
HERE‘s me just playin at the turntables with the 3 songs.
