Rubble Kings The Mixtape

Rubble Kings

I haven’t seen the film but this soundtrack/mixtape is on point for the Rubble Kings documentary about Gang Culture in 1970s New York….I love when a soundtrack makes you feel like your watching a movie…..“From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation of life during this era of gang rule to date, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over.” This mix includes  music from Rock Creek Park, Take It Easy My Brother Charles, Theme From S.W.A.T., Our Generation, Hard Times and more…. “it was compiled and assembled by Sammy Needlz, Rok One, DJ Tahleim, and the film’s director Shan Nicholson (all incredible selectors and musical encyclopedias in their own right). Much like New York City itself, it is divided into five sections (based on the musical genres that influenced these notorious gangs). From the anthemic soul and funk of the Black struggle, to the salsa and Boogaloo of the Latin Barrios, to the gritty and abrasive psychedelic rock of White gangland. A true epic tale of war and peace, “Rubble Kings: The Mixtape” serves as a direct sonic glimpse into the heart and soul of this pivotal moment in the city’s history.”

The Beatfonics Crew – Beatxploitation

Beatxploitation
The Beatfonics crew dropped this Beatexploitation concept of instrumentals back in April. Check it out on bandcamp and download it for free on tumblr.  “For their seventh volume The Beatfonics Crew wanted to explore the world of Blaxploitation movement, an African-American film genre that emerged in the United States in the ‘70s”… this Volume takes to task the art  of capturing the vibrations of the music genres that carried those films and commences to infuse it with it’s own creative expression.
