Ashton “DJ Cassanova” Irons – The Producer Project: The Texas Tapes 1992-1995 EP

 

Dope 8-track 100% unreleased and unleaked material from the early to mid 90’s outta Texas, produced by Papa Chuk & Landlords of the Morgue producer Ashton “DJ Cassanova” Irons. You will know Teddy Lee from the group Project Crew but the rest are pretty obscure acts that passed through Ashton’s studio in the early to mid 90’s to record their demos. Check out the flava!!

Oct/Nov Cycle #3

Creaturenomics – Hunt For The Future EP

 

Heads will know Creature from his first group The Triflicts (Hydra Ent) as well as his much-lauded feature on MF DOOM/Viktor Vaughn’s ‘Open Mic Night Pt 2’ off the ‘Vaudeville Villain’ LP. This right here is a brand new project which features production from the excellent El Pres Beats who is a London-based Dutch beatmaker. The whole vibe is reminiscent of early 2000s DOOM/M.I.C. but obviously with its own distinct flava. Really dope selection of tracks this, so we had to get it on a 7″ for the fisherman. Peep the snippets yo!!!

Oct/Nov Cycle #2

Landlords of The Morgue – Welcomes to the Morgue EP [1994-1995]

 

Landlords of the Morgue was an obscure three man crew from Texas consisting of One Son, Dot Nice & Madd Scripts. They met while serving in the army at Ford Hood but all came from different states originally. One Son from Alabama, Dot Nice was from Queens, NY and Madd Scripts from Chicago. They hooked up with producer Ashton “DJ Cassanova” Irons (Papa Chuk/Project Crew) in Killeen, Texas after a showcase Cass attended. He was working with them individually and finally decided to put them together to form Landlords. What we have here are seven tracks that originally appeared on a very obscure homemade cassette that was effectively used as their demo tape – good luck finding that. Currently there is no info on the net about them and no Discogs listing, yet!

Cru p.ka. Rhythm Blunt Cru

The Early 90’s Pre-Demos

Pretty crazy this one!! My man Brian Kayser [Chopped Herring Interviews] hit up MC Chadio with a book idea. He happened to mention Herring and the rest is history. These are the demos that attracted Violator Ent impresario ‘Baby’ Chris Lighty [R.I.P.]. Lighty hooked up the deal with Def Jam through a second set of demos, but these beauties are what started the ball rolling on the career of three man outfit Cru previously known as Rhythm Blunt Cru. The name was shorted by Russell Simmons who I can only assume thought the word ‘blunt’ in the name of a group was a negative [when we all know that it’s a huge positive!!!]. There’s not much more to say here – just take a listen to the snippets and dig that lost early 90’s NY flava that we feen for. Massive Fish!!!!
