ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CD Baby's 5 STAR REVIEW!!!!!!!!!

They call it, "Old school soulful space funk making love to electronic analog punk jazz;" I would call it a fascinating album full of beats, samples, and original music that would make both Beck and DJ Shadow drool. This is a wonderfully wild and weird album, exploring genres around every corner. From the 70's slap bass-driven funk of "Moonbooze Knows What Time It Is," to the fast & jazzy "Walk Among Us (Autonomia)" which features upright bass, piano, horns, cut up drum beats, and is that a ukelele we hear? While most tracks are instrumental, they feature a huge variety of samples from God knows where, amply scratched and manipulated by the DJ, and a few songs feature lead vocals, like the poetic rap of Count Bass D on laid back guitar-driven "ONE (Dependent on None). This is a fun party album, but also rewards the listeners who listen closely.

Here are some other sweet reviews of the RADIO RECESSION album from some important funksters in the music biz:

TUCK from legendary funk band PURE ESSENCE:

Some of the best music in my humble opinion is being produced and performed by underground independent artists and producers. That brings me to ONEdependent & Taki76's new CD “Radio Recession”. The title alone addresses one of my favorite beefs, the very sad state of today’s radio industry. Starting with the high energy of the cut “Gumdrop's Revenge" as well as the funky soulful “Feel My Pain” and grooving you on out at the end with “Case for Modern Man” (featuring Turtle Handz & Moonbooze) this is a winner.This should help you get over your Sad Ass Radio Blues.
Steve Tuck Walters of PURE ESSENCE
--------------------------------------------------

ARIK (Ahreek the freak) MARSHALL (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, MACY GRAY guitarist):


"Miles once said 'there's only two types of music...good music and bad music' (I think it was Miles who said that...I could be wrong, maybe it was H.R. Puf n' Stuff) well anyway, 'Radio Recession' definitely falls under the former category. This is the kind of disc that has a bit of somethin' for airbody without sounding like it gives a funk to please anybody. Organica. Naturally eclectic. You can bump it as some real ear-pleasing back-ground soundtrack music to other thangz you're doin' or you can really pay attention (cuzz you can't afford free speech) and appreciate the high level of creativity, soul and production skillz goin' on. Sample summa dat.
So if you're keen on groovy modern soundz with that classic fonky feel...then get out ya shovel and dig it!"
----------------------------------------------


SY SMITH (background singer for Whitney Houston, Macy Gray, Usher, Jamie Foxx, Me’shell N’degeocello, Eric Benét, Ginuwine and Brandy) and she also has a few really soulful solo cds

"CD is GREAT!! Crazy combination of sounds and soundbites! Love the bass lines, especially on "Moonbooze knows what time...", "Kill The Box", "Soul Will Be Free"... Nice work!!! Great collabs too! Thanks for sharing Radio Recession with me! The packaging is dope too! Freethinkers and funksters everywhere should get this CD!"

The Radio Recession BIO:
Kick-kick-kickin' right through your speakers, ONE-76's thick grooves will make you forget that the music biz is currently on life support!

ONEdependent and Taki76 Present: Radio Recession is a schizophrenic mix, a new type of sound, a 'sci-fi funk' thang. Philly soul blended with experimental hip-hop, if you will. Starting with the crackling sounds of a needle hitting old vinyl, anguished voices chronicle poverty, power and possession while leading you on an unpredictable musical trip.

ONE-76 is a Philly based duo that met in 2005 and realized that although they hailed from different lands [Buffalo and Montreal, respectively], their artistic goals were the same. Needless to say, the RADIO RECESSION was born. They wanted to create an album that would tease the listener by continually reinventing arrangements, just as often as a DJ would cross their fader when hyping a club. Restyling the rules of writing and arranging is what they do best, often-fusing together unexpected and nuanced orchestrations that will taunt the ear.

These two scientists of sound reinforce their indie mentality with the help of the legendary underground MC, producer and skilled musician COUNT BASS D. Count can be heard rhyming on the jazziest cut on the album called "ONE (dependent on none)".
Radio Recession also features two very important members of the group's musical family. The rhymes of the green masked man Turtle Handz, from Parts Abnormal, New Jersey; contributed the quick linguistics on "Case For Modern Man" and the golden-era style beat-tangent in "Suns Burnin'". Narykcin, from Lancaster, PA sings on "Feel My Pain" and "Soul Will Be Free", telling soulful stories of Philly and the women who bless it.

ONE-76's debut album contains music that will catch the ear of underground hip hop heads who dig Madlib and Gnarls Barkley and even please the fans of old school legends George Clinton, Prince, Sly Stone and Curtis Mayfield.

Mark Anthony Jones, (who has played with Santana, Roy Ayers and The Roots) reacted to ONE-76's music by saying, "I am sitting here with a BigAss silly Bootzilla grin on my face listening to Radio Recession, Shit sounds DOPE!". The critically acclaimed Sy Smith (vocals for Whitney Houston, USHER etc) had this to say, "Good ole brotherly-lovin funk… Mellow groves, tight improvisation and melodies made of molasses … This is a different kind of Philly Funk … The kind of funk that transcends trends … "
