More Underrated 90s Tracker Music

quote [ I delved deep into my collection of classic s3m, mod, xm, and it files from the 90s, and I chose more of the best underrated and obscure songs! Hopefully you... ]

Nostalgically reminiscent for FruityLoops now.

Bokeh Versions ? Outopia Thru Sound

quote [ Meshing dancehall, dub, techno and industrial, Bristol?s Bokeh Versions label has carved a unique niche in the UK underground. ]

Great label ? thought I had posted this before, but no. Thumb: bleached merch. This very much follows the tradition of On-U-Sound.

Saint Patrick Battalion

quote [ My name is John Riley I'll have your ear only a while
I left my dear home in Ireland It was death, starvation or exile
And when I got to America It was my duty to go
Enter the Army and slog across Texas To join in the war against Mexico

It was there in the pueblos and hillsides That I saw the mistake I had made
Part of a conquering army With the morals of a bayonet blade
So in the midst of these poor, dying Catholics
Screaming children, the burning stench of it all
Myself and two hundred Irishmen Decided to rise to the call ]

I had no idea it was Saint Patrick's day until about 5 minutes ago. Been listening to this beautiful song all afternoon since I had it shared with me.

THE REINTRODUCTION OF MUMU FRESH MIXTAPE hosted by DJ DUMMY

quote [ Baby, I-I'm not saying you stupid baby, / I'm saying you got stupid tendencies, there's a difference ]

Great listen with some original songs, covers and skits from 2014. There's a biased review of the time, if you need more info.

quote is from Drake cover #14

Pop Makossa Takes You Back To Cameroon?s Famous Disco Craze

quote [ What is Makossa? The genre originated from the Douala word for dance, ?kossa? and was popularise by refrains and chorus of popular Cameroonian songs in the 1950?s. The musical form and dances existed over the years but its christening came from the smash hit by Manu Dibango ? Soul Makossa. [?] Indeed, the chorus, ?mamako, mamasa, maka makossa? led it to international acclaim when Michael Jackson sampled it on his song ?Wanna Be Starting Something?. ]

Great album and great writeup for genre history. Already more than 5 years since they compiled this album.

Turkish-Syrian Earthquake Relief, by Canary Records

quote [ The album will likely be deleted in about a month. In the meantime, it is here to demonstrate that all men are brothers. Any of the musicians, were they alive today, would have wanted to contribute to this effort, I am sure. ]

Just learned that the fine label compiled immigrant music on occasion of the ? still ongoing ? quakes.

Yma Sumac on David Letterman Show (1987)

quote [ Boy, that's a very ?mystical sound there ]

Nice to see some late material. Yma Sumac kind of reappeared with the exotica retro wave in the early 2000s but I guess the legacy was never obscured. Check out the vocal range.

One Song, Many Writers

quote [ How modern songwriting evolved into a game of aggressive credit?even for the people who didn?t technically do the composing. ]

Cause I knew I'd found me a sure hit songwriter's pen
