every beat of his that I've heard.

Need to do some more research to try and hear it all. He's got a large discog from what I can see.

Had never heard Solemn before but I like him on the mic as well. Impressive.

He's had a few other EPs/projects that I've heard and enjoyed. But I've LOVED everything he's done for Mello.

I hadn't heard anything by Solemn either. From what I understand, him and L'Orange used to work together back in the days.

Word.

To your first point - yea I'd heard his album w/Jeremiah Jae a few years back and LOVED it ... which is how I was put onto him, then checked out various stray stuff shortly thereafter but never did a full discog rundown. Gotta get to that I guess, since he's batting a thousand against my ears thus far.

After that, I'd say "Orchid Days" (his first "solo" album with Mello) and "The City Under the City" with Stik Figa are his next best two.

After that I'd say check out his EP with Mr. Lif and the "Ordinary Man" solo album which dropped last year.

The album with Kool Keith is good, but it's stretched a little thin. You can tell Keith didn't record that much material, so L'Orange fills it out with lots of guest MCs.

I think I heard a handful of songs on the Kool Keith album, and maybe one or two off "Ordinary Man" right when it dropped as well. Had always told myself I'd go back to them then never did. No better time than now while he's fresh in my mind.

Anyway thanks for the great rundown.

That's an EP with the outtakes from "Orchid Days." Some pretty dope stuff on there.

Cool piece of work. I wouldn’t call it “boom bap,” I’d just call it well made rap music. Someone else here called it “alt Pharcyde” and I wouldn’t call it that either. I don’t hear an obvious vocal reference point. Good work. I particularly miss hearing people rap at faster tempos like this.

Two songs in and I don’t hear any curse words or filler lines either. Focused writing on deck, with an emphasis on the flows matching the rhythm of the beats and rhyme scheme construction. I can tell the cat on vocals is dedicated to the craft. Beats are dynamic as well, not a wasted moment on here musically.

Peace,

Spirit (Alan)

I also miss that and loved his flows on this album. Agree that it's not *exactly* boom bap but it certainly resembles that boom bap sound more than a lot of new hip-hop the last few years.

Totally agree. I was particularly starting to get that impression (Solemn's ability to fit his flow to the beat) on "Tales from the East" and then kept my ear on that for the rest of the album.

Really well done album, great beats/production (as seems to always be the case w/L'Orange productions) and Solemn is nice on the mic. Def some good themes on here as well. This will be in rotation for a while.

I will say that while I don't really fully "get" the skits/interludes yet, the "Eddy Appetite's House of Definitely Legal Oddities" skit has been cracking me up for some reason.

Honest Living, Tales from the East, Medicated.....Boom Bap

The sing-song type flow, the space where the voice sits in the mix, the creative production all feel like Pharcyde to me.

In response to Reply # 12


  

          

The Pharcyde's two albums as a foursome sound completely different from one another.

And this album sounds like neither of those records.

Also, not sure how you define boom bap. This doesn't sound like it was produced by DJ Premier. Not sure what you're hearing or how you define that phrase.

Peace,

Which is my favourite L’Orange project so far, but over all I enjoyed Marlowe.

Between him, Oddisee and Apollo Brown MMG have an absolute militia of beat makers.

Loved the joint with Jeremiah Jae

and the couple of tracks with Blu.. Blu's voice/flow sound perfect over his beats.
