I can be notoriously bad at listening to new music right once it comes out. I have yet to hear De La’s Plug 1 & Plug 2 Present… First Serve, which was released almost a year ago. Their first effort since 2004s terrific The Grind Date.
So, for tonight’s SoundCloudSunday, an already established act, De La Soul. True hip hop!
Check out two track’s from First Serve:
First Serve is the brainchild of French producers/ DJ’s, 2 & 4 (aka Chokolate & Kahlid), who met as master turntablists at the 2004 DMC Championship. After an instant meeting of minds they decided to embark on a musical adventure – a Hip Hop album played by musicians. All they needed was a couple of MC’s to help complete their vision. Enter NY based Jacob ‘Pop’ Life and Deen ‘D’ Whitter.
Check them out on SoundCloud to hear more, including a First Serve mixtape.
