ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As heard on MTV's "The Real World"!

---
A highly-skilled producer down with the wax musim collective, DJ Allstar's instrumentals are incredibly original and diverse. Jazz, Trip-Hop, and straightforward rap beats are complimented with obese basslines, futuristic keyboards and razor-sharp cutting. Consistently bangin' and impressive.

we says:

After a series of successful pause mix tapes*, DJ allstar was given his first taste of scratching over a decade ago when his brother bought a home turntable and cassette deck with his paper route money. The neighborhood boys would spend time at the house having "scratch contests," with just the cassette deck's record volume as the crossfader."DJ Jazzy Rock" (as he was christened back then) would naturally be the one to reign, as the equipment was in his house. More equipment purchases were then in order, and allstar practiced his mixing and scratching skills along with his big brother, and subsequently made a decent supplemental income in high school by selling mixtapes and spinning at parties.

Allstar got his name from friends, who noticed his incessant purchasing of Converse Chuck Taylor shoes ("I sported red leather, the black, pink and gray "foldovers," blue glitter, even stonewashed the black chucks for profit..."). The supernatural happened a few years later (he became a born-again follower of Jesus Christ in 1989), and shortly after the parties stopped, and a few years later the spinning stopped. It was not a permanent retirement, however. He had some residual equipment and hooked up with some crews in his hometown (fun fact--he did some very early recordings with Flynn of LA Symphony before he migrated west to take over). He moved out of his home town on his own, and was enabled to acquire some of the basics of beat making and cutting, as well as a few acquaintances in the "faiths" (Christianity and turntablism). more equipment was acquired, and more beats emanated from allstar's lab. what we have here is a selection from the hundreds of beats and songs sitting on the disks of one of the dj's of the wax musim.

This album has been heard all over the world, giving audiences good vibes all around. Although the artist is clear about his intentions in creating the album, spiritually, the album is an instrumental album, and, like a piece of art (in fact, like the piece of art that graces its cover), leaves itself open to the interpretation of the listener.

One thing is for sure--this album absolutely gives you the proper aural stimulation that will allow you to think it out.

I love it!!
This have got to be the best instrumental CD that I have ever heard in a looooong time. You can definately feel this music. If you love to chill to music, you WILL love this CD. You gotta pick this one up, Now!

Welcome to the next level
This is the sound of a DJ putting his ego aside and letting the music through. This is a CD that needs to be heard.

What do trip hop, virtual orchestra tapestries, club music, electronic ambient styles and Jazz have in common? Usually, not much more than the basic ingredients of harmony, rhythm and melody but this album proves otherwise in its chilled out blend of all of the above. For those who want solid beats but a laid back atmosphere that doesn't assault with too much grit from the streets or froufrou sophistication from the academics, this is your fed-up-want-something-fresh-so-I-can-enjoy-music-again medicine.

Chris Schlarb of Sounds Are Active

Original music from samples and scratches!
This is an incredibly underrated album which needs to be heard by more people. If it was DJ Shadow, people would be jocking. If it was on Mo'Wax or Ninja Tune people would be jocking. What Yochannan is able to do here is no mean feat: create (!) something new from something old. A hip-hop axiom to be sure but easier said than done. A mature artistic statment that allows for repeated listens, each one more enjoyable and rewarding than the last.

an album definitive of its genre
This is one of my favorite albums. As a DJ/producer myself, DJ Allstar has always been a huge influence on my development as an artist. I used to hunt down all his tracks online so that I could hear his latest beat techniques and tricks. I highly reccomend this album to anyone who loves trip hop or hip hop instrumentals, it's a staple in my car's cd changer: phat beats and beautiful music, how can you lose?

Tamara Turner, CDBaby

Tip top trip hop.
