NOW PLAYING: DJ Cam, ‘Mad Blunted Jazz’

The Artist/Album: DJ Cam, Mad Blunted Jazz (Shadow, 1996)

A Short Review: Here’s a little story that must be told, of a time where “downtempo” didn’t mean Buddha bars and apple martinis. More like a smoky blend of chunky breaks and street-seasoned samples. The perfect start to another long week, really, albeit one that’s out of print and in need of a proper reissue sometime soon.
