Seanh - MF DOOM + Sade | SADEVILLAIN I & II (Full Album)

Leave a comment

 

Me being a DJ/engineer can appreciate the art of placing/nudging/sliding acapella's in a way that compliments both beat/vocal elements. One of my first memories of superb acapella/remix mastery was Danger Mouse's The Grey Album, a mashup released in 2004. It mixes an acapella version of Jay-Z's The Black Album with samples from the Beatles' self-titled ninth album, commonly known as "The White Album". Of course this isn't anything rare, but just like everything else the cream rises to the top. SADVILLAIN, the brainchild of indie producer Seanh as a 2 part sequel, part 1 releasing March 1, 2016 and part 2 releasing June 11, 2017. The SADEVILLAIN project, tapping vocals from fellow luminaries MadlibMos Def and Ghostface Killah obviously hits different after the recent passing of the Metal Faced Doom. My barometer for dope acapella placement is when the new fusion temporarily makes me forget about the original recording. Seanh makes verses you may have heard a hundred times sound fresh with a new coat of paint. Stay tuned in, support the mission. Download SADEVILLIAN @ seanh2k11.bandcamp.com

In times like these Art/Artists are paramount in sustaining a healthy piece of mind and also the recovery process from the current trauma we're all facing. Soon after the quarentine was put in place I reached out to Astu to let her know her music would be a major part of my personal mindfulness during the #StayAtHome ordinance. "Reckless" is Astu's latest offering showing the contrast of happier times with her crew to footage featuring some of 2020's worst natural disasters to date. Art imitates life and "Reckless" should be a reminder to all of us that physical connection is what makes us human and one day we'll return to some form of normalcy. Follow Astu and her label Boyish Records for more of their upcoming releases. Check here to stream "Reckless" as well as Astu's album "Patterns".
