Bob Marley – Jammin’ (Mando and Noggin Chopped and Screwed mix)

Part 1

Title: Jammin’ (Mando and Noggin Chopped and Screwed mix)
Artist: Bob Marley
Album: Mando and Noggin sing the blues
Date: 2000

All props to Mando on this one.
When I got to SWT, I had a very novel experience. One day, hanging out in my dorm room, I started hearing drum n bass. Now, you youngins might take that for granted, but being one of maybe 3 people total from Bryan, TX who was even remotely interested in electronic music at the time (ps. I was totally engulfed), this was a pretty shocking experience.
I immediately looked past any social niceties / hangups and followed the sound to find this tall dude in a backwards cap just playing video games jammin some AK1200 or something. Friendship ensued immediately. Come to find out, we had a lot of similar tastes – notably for this post, screw.
One afternoon we were hanging out in my room and got the idea that we needed to chop and screw Mr. Marley’s classic. Bustin’ out the soundforge and my previous experience working as resident chopper for Bryan act Versatile, we started cutting and pasting (this is when i could not afford no damn turntables, much less even find two copies of this track on wax). Mando really helped me take my head out of my routine and get into the groove of listening…something only the real musicians amongst so many biters can appreciate, and put into practice. What I brought to the table was the technical know-how, and our two strengths combined led to some pretty awesome experimental sections where we really took this track into the psychedelic territory we both felt it belonged in.
Finally, homedude busts out these killer pipes for a nice little breakdown at the end.
Mad respect to you, Mando. Though we’ve long since lost touch, here’s hoping you find this.

Sure Dread – Natty Know (Noggin Natty Circuit Mix)

Part 1

Title: Natty Know (Noggin Natty Circuit Mix)
Artist: Noggin
Album: As Yet Unknown
Release Date: 2010

Last spring I started doing remixes by reworking others’ tunes through a vintage Nintendo running MidiNES. This results in endless fun and a new appreciation for dealing with limitations…the NES can only make 5 sounds at any given time, and only 3 of those are melodic.
This is a remix I have done for a guy called Sure Dread from the DubRoom. Sure Dread, I would like to commend you on your excellent work.
This song is by Sure Dread, I have done this remix out of respect and admiration for his work.
I also have to give props to Rocky for helping tweak this shiznit in the basement w/ me.
