  • [Link] Blockhead - Music By Cavelight

    Another link to an underrated 2004 album...



    Blockhead - Music By Cavelight
    After the success of Rjd2's "Deadringer" in 2002, labels have started putting more faith in instrumental releases (or at least, releases dominated by instrumentals). So far in 2004, we have seen the release of Rjd2's "Since We Last Spoke", Sixtoo's "Chewing On Glass & Other Miracle Cures", Sharkey's "Sharkey's Machine", DJ Signify's "Sleep No More", as well as "Theme From A Broken Soul", "Stevie" and "Monk Hughes & The Outer Realm" from Madlib (aka. DJ Rels, Yesterdays New Quintet" etc.)

    Some of these releases have been dope (eg. DJ Signify).
    Some have been average (eg. Sharkey).
    Some have been far too weird (eg. Madlib's "Yesterdays New Quintet" outings)
    Some have been downright dissapointing (eg. Rjd2's "Since We Last Spoke")

    But as far as I'm concerned, Blockhead's "Music By Cavelight" is the best instrumental release so far this year. Perhaps one of my favourites of all time (up there with "Deadringer" and "Endtroducing").

    You may know of Blockhead through his collaborations with Aesop Rock (eg. "Daylight", "Bent Life", "9-5ers Anthem", "Forest Crunk" etc.).
    If you enjoyed him then, this is him taking his production to the next level.
    The beats range from somber, mundane and understated, to moody, complex and out of this world.

    I love it.
    You should too.
    Give it a go.

    Yep, this album is pretty awesome. "Insomniac Olympics" still one of the best tracks of '04!

    Nearly everything Blockhead has produced has been great...apart from P.F.A.C - "Let's Get Serious" ... sigh.

      I bought this album and never gave it much of a chance. I guess i should give it another listen.
      Come to think of it has anyone heard madlib's blue note album of been wondering about that. ?

                  ^ Yep... someone obviously has shut down my home computer before the file had a chance to properly upload. I'll up it again tomorrow night.

                      I just assumed... isn't that how yousendit works? It goes down either after 7 downloads or 7 days?

                      Or did I just imagine that?

                          This is slightly unrelated, but what were your thoughts on DJ Signify's "Sleep No More"?

                            Ahhh the link didn't work

                            Unfortunately, the link you have clicked is not available.

                            Either there's a bunch of leechers or someone is being an ass and blocking the link. Bastards.

                              It's seeming like the latter option... hmm.

                              I just tried the old link and it seems to work again!
