Smoke Notes

There was a time in the early nineties when it looked like producer Pete Rock might become a superstar. His recordings with CL Smooth had established the duo as frontrunners in the new rap movement, alongside the likes of the Jungle Bothers, A Tribe Called Quest and Brand Nubian, New York City crews making an alternative Hip-Hop to the militant beats of Public Enemy and gun-talk of Gangster rap. Yet after two successful LPs the two parted ways on solo careers that have never again reached such heights. Since then Pete Rock has continued to produce and ranks as one of hip-hops few true innovators, with a distinctive sound and technique to beat making that has made him an underground legend and hugely influential. Soul Survivor 2 continues his relationship with the highly respected BBE/Rapster imprint, following his critically acclaimed but rarely heard Petestrumentals LP for the label. This release shouldnt suffer the same fate by containing many of todays finest emcee talent, giving the album a far higher profile. Highlights include the dancehall flavored We Good with Kardinal Offishall, two reunions with CL Smooth, Its A Love Thing and Fly Till I Die, featuring Denosh and Talib Kweli respectively, and the slamming Just Do It with Pharoahe Monch. While Da Villa with Detroit crew Slum Village, and One MC One DJ featuring Skillz show this old school legend hasnt lost touch with the new school beats of Timbaland and the Neptunes. Finally the closing Appreciate, another collaboration with CL Smooth recalls those glory days of earlier hits T.R.O.Y. and Straighten It Out. Current production wizard Kanye West rates Pete Rock as his biggest influence, and twenty years on from his beginnings as a DJ in Queens this hip-hop genius has lost none of his ability to thrill and fascinate. Recommended.
