Jason Jagel brought me here. Did not know about this. An album by the tastemaker Egon himself?? Must be good, right?

B2 Malcolm's Beat, which is Malcolm Catto roaring out heavy drum breaks on the trap kit is really dope.

Listening to this album though, shows Egon's talents, rare funk 45 collecting definitely, trying to utilize them as producer... it reveals a lack of talent for creation, there's a big difference between owning Mickey and The Soul Brothers "Get Down" 45, and being able to make a beat out of it for example. That's kind of the troubling thread, is the samples are from killer records, fantastic tracks, but there's almost zero creative transformation.

To be fair, having Malcolm Catto come in and lay down a roaring open drum break with cool changeups shows a knack for assembling creative people, with musical talents, either playing instruments, or using the sampler as an instrument (Madlib, an excellent producer, is managed by Egon for example).

I think it must have been a humbling affair, but given this one-off, it probably made him realize his abilities were elsewhere, and as a time capsule, plus $5 for Malcolm Catto going heavy on the drums.... that is what makes it worthwhile.

I don't think Stones Throw is going to reissue this anytime...in the next millennium, but it is a cool artifact, and no doubt pushed Egon to do what he does now.
