‘It’s Your Rock (dub)’ by Fantasy Three (1983)


My good pal The Baron from my hometown of Newton hooked me up with this one. The record was totally beat to shit. Somehow a few runs on the Nitty Gritty machine did it justice. Totally rockable now. The vocal version is pretty hot. Your garden variety rare early rap record. But the dub… So hot. I love it. Lots of tape edits, flanging drums galore, vocal stabs with panning delays, the synths. They really laced it. It’s your rock now.

I read Toop's 'Rap Attack' in Junior High. I learned a lot from that book. So fresh. I'll check the comp out.

That snare drum makes me want to start pop locking in my office. Why is there a window on the door. Props to the Baron for the nugget, and Zartek for the magic.

Great blog. Can I beg for 320s in the future?

Zartek said...

There will be no 320s. These L.A.M.E. 256s sound great. Don't pay attention to the numbers, just listen. Your eyes can decieve you. Thanks for stopping by and checking out the warped world of Zartek. Sincerely, Zartek
