anderson.paak and Knxwledge have a remixed version of their debut album Yes Lawd! coming out this week. “Suede (Uptwnmixx)” is a sample of the project that Knxwledge exclusively reworked and effectively turned Yes Lawd! into two different albums. Yes Lawd! Remixes will be released by Stones Throw on Friday (November 17th).
RoyalCash’s “Radioactivity” had an essential place in the 1983 world of pop-locking and breakdancing. Darryl Cash wrote and performed the music and Reggie Calloway who was successful as a founder of the Midnight Star and Calloway bands, co-produced “Radioactivity” with Cash. The Roland drum machine and the blend of computerized and live vocals in the electro sound was another instance of R&B becoming more electronic outside of house music. “Radioactivity” is one the last songs of the subgenre to emerge before Run D.M.C. arrived with a new style of hip-hop but still has a pulse in the younger generations from being sampled in rap and YouTube.
