Danny Brown - Grown Up

Photobucket

Stylish and sucka free, Danny Brown is a Detroit rapper like none other. His punchline-stuffed 2011 album XXX landed high on many best-of year-end lists and deservedly so. On his new Scion A/V single "Grown Up" Brown reminisces about being a frisky little kid over snappy snares and pulsing piano. "Whoever though I'd be the greatest growing up?" asks Danny.

Photobucket

Our new compilation Kitsuné Parisien III is out this Monday! As the Kitsuné Parisien compilation series is selected by Gildas and designed by night bird graffiti artist André, we wanted to know more about them! Read their interview below:
_______________________________________________________________________________
ANDRÉ ABOUT GILDAS
___________________________________________________________________________________

Your best party memory in Paris with Gildas?
- I’d better not tell you that!

Your favorite Parisien compilation?
- Kitsuné Parisien III! Mainly the track “U.V” by Cinema.

If you had to draw Gildas, how would you represent him?
As an animal! (and not as a “Grinch”, as Gildas would probably expect!)

Where do you give rendezvous to Gildas when you meet him in Paris?
- At the Hotel Amour or at the Kooka Boora, the coffee down my home.

What do you dream to say to Gildas?
- I love you.

According to you, which Maison Kitsuné piece best fit to Gildas?
- The Kitsuné x New Era cap, with “Parisien” embroidered on it!

Gildas in a word?
- Genuine.
__________________________________________________________________________________
GILDAS ABOUT ANDRÉ
___________________________________________________________________________________

Your best party memory in Paris with André?
- Many many parties, under bridges, in some houses, at Café de Flore, Baron, Chez Moune, Paris Paris, Montana clubs, and on rooftops…

Your favorite Parisien compilation?
- Parisien compilations go always better and better, number by number.

If you had to dedicate a track to André, which one would you choose?
- I like “U.V” by Cinema on Parisien III compilation.

Where do you give rendezvous to André when you meet in Paris?
- At L’hôtel Amour or at his house or at my home.

What do you dream to say to André?
- There’s not much that I haven’t already told him.

According to you, which Maison Kitsuné piece would best fit to André?
- The Worker Fall-Winter 2012 jacket, with Scottish tartan wool interior, which is terrific on him, and, by the way, that never leaves him.

André in a word?
- In a letter: Mr A.

"Bassline Junkie"

Hey turn the base off, turn the base off
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Dirty, dirty stinkin big
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Base, base, base

[Chorus:]
I don’t need no speed,
I don’t need no heroin,
I don’t want no coke,
You can keep your ketamine,
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again

I don’t like it funky

I’m a fiend for a big day bassline
When I hear one I have a great time
A bit of bass’ all what I require
I let the bassline take me higher
My friends think that it’s a bad habit
But I’m just like f-ck you, damn it
If you take my base away
I’ll blow your f-cking face away
You might think I’m over the cup
But when I hear that bassline drop
I just can’t control my actions
But I still feel satisfaction
So don’t come around that engine
I just wanna hear the bassline rinsin
Or we can just... all day
If not get the f-ck out my way

[Chorus:]
I don’t need no speed,
I don’t need no heroin,
I don’t want no coke,
You can keep your ketamine,
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I don’t like it funky

Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Dirty, dirty stinkin big
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Big dirty stinking base, dirty stinking base
Base, base, base

You ever doubt, go ...
And I think it’s well out of order
All my neighbors throwing the fifth
So I told them suck my dick
And I told them I got the power
And I turn the music up louder
All night till 6 in the morning
Old bastards, they just boring
You know me, I’m the bassline ...
Nobody can tell me...
And the police turned up and they took me
We drove out to the liquor and they bought me
When I said there give me a ...
If I didn’t give them no distinction
But I said don’t bother, I’m guilty
I’m a bassline f-cking filthy

[Chorus:]
I don’t need no speed,
I don’t need no heroin,
I don’t want no coke,
You can keep your ketamine,
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I don’t like it funky

ABOUT RAGGAJUNGLE :

Le Ragga Jungle est un genre musical apparu en Angleterre vers 1989-1990, initialement principalement incarné par la production de Michael West (Rebel MC, Congo Natty Label). Parmi les pionniers du genre, également Leenie De Ice et Ragga Twins.

Aujourd'hui le terme Ragga Jungle correspond à deux genres distincts même si la frontière entre les deux est mince.

Le Dubwise drum. Genre de musique électronique s'apparentant à de la Drum and Bass avec une forte présence de culture reggae. Voix dancehall ou roots, reprise de riddim, breaks reggae pitché avec des effets, sirènes, samples spécifique au reggae y sont employés. Des producteurs actuels comme Terry T (Congo Natty labels), Serial Kilerz, Visionari assurent l'actualité du style.

Le Ragga Jungle à proprement parler est composé des mêmes éléments reggae que le dubwise. Mais la version est jungle : breaks torturés, basse lourde et sèche. Le reggae y est encore plus mis en avant que le Dubwise avec des breaks reggae qui se prolongent. Les leader actuels sont l'Americain Tester, Psychofreud, Dj K, Twinhooker & Paulie Walnuts, Jacky Murda et plusieurs petits producteurs méconnus.

Ragga jungle is a genre of music that emerged circa 1989-1990 and was initially heavily based on production of Michael West (Rebel MC, Congo Natty Label). Early pioneers of the genre also include Lennie De Ice and Ragga Twins. History

The style is credited with engaging the black community within the jungle scene, and contributed to the 'bad boy' or 'rude boy' subculture within the UK. Ragga jungle's popularity waned significantly since 1995 in the UK, in part because the more popular DJs have stopped giving the sound airtime. There was a large amount of rudeboy/guntalk reggae being produced at that time which influenced the ragga jungle sound greatly. Some tracks featured samples of gangster movies, gunshots, and samples of Reggae sound clashes.

Ragga jungle is now a niche sound, with a small number of labels releasing music that can be categorised as the genre. Ragga jungle is the sum of four parts. Jungle breakbeats, rudeboy lyrics, reggae bass lines, and a sound clash mentality. In the 2000s, Canadian and American producers have been gaining popularity with their updated version of the sub-genre largely through online networks, sparking a small, yet international renaissance. Prominent producers of the new-school sound are continuing to build bridges, often re-voicing classic reggae singers to produce new works for exclusive use (as dubplates) and retail sale as 12" vinyl singles and downloadable mp3's.

The renaissance has sparked the return of many old-school fans and producers alike, who faded from the scene or reinvented themselves when the raves thinned and the music shed its soundsystem roots. A dark age followed for ragga junglists when club DJs opted to support the more technical and less vocal-oriented drum and bass productions. Dubwise junglists have welcomed the return of the rub-a-dub sound, and ragga vocals have gradually regained favour, no doubt helped by the crossover of dancehall. Compilations and DJ mix albums have also helped introduce ragga jungle to new audiences.
