Senor Kaos & DJ Eleven

April 19th, 2011

At the end of last summer, I was working on The Mulligans and reached out to Señor Kaos about doing a verse for one of the beats I was working on.  Not only did he do that first verse, he went back & recorded a second verse, put it on his “Señor Kaos Is The Most Interesting MC In The World!” project, and now has a video for the joint too.  Well gotdam!

You can check out the video, grab the song, and read the long version of how it all came to pass in Kaos’ own words right here.

Make sure you check out TheKaosEffect.com and grab “The Most Interesting MC In The World!”

Star Wars meets The Mulligans

Some ideas are just too silly to warrant explaining.  Enjoy!

Touch Sensitive + The Beatnuts

November 8th, 2010

The Beatnuts “Give Me The Ass” has always been one of my favorites of their many ignorant gems.  (“I wanna fuck, drink beer & smoke some shit” anyone?)  I always wanted to repurpose the vocals but it wasn’t until a gazillion nu disco joints popped up in the last couple years that I could find anything which started to click.  I’m not sure where exactly anyone will ever get a chance to play this, certainly not if there’s a woman within earshot.  But, fuck it.

If you wanna see some cash… you know the rest.

The Mulligans Slaughterhouse

November 1st, 2010

This is the last of the joints that are left-over from the abandoned rock project which keeps coming up in these posts. It’s one of the hardest for me to listen to for a couple reasons: 1) I love Masta Ace’s “Slaughterhouse” a lot! 2) I don’t have much love for Queens of the Stone Age at all. In the end, I don’t think this joint deserves the trash bin. But, as always, you’ll be the judge of that.

Kells & The Bear

October 25th, 2010

R. Kelly + Grizzly Bear? Yup. And it sounds pretty okay.

BoB Mulligan

October 18th, 2010

Outkast’s “Bombs Over Baghdad” is one of those records which is super hard to touch: it’s weird, it’s crazy funky, and people love it. When I started to work on this joint, I was more concentrated on getting the beat to work (that’s Animal Collective, by the way) & the ‘Kast was just a placeholder acapella to try & get some structure worked out. But after listening to this over & over & over & over, I couldn’t imagine it without the Outkast. And, in the end, the acapella didn’t sound great (neither does the beat, haha), so I shelved it. But, like all of The Mulligans, there’s something there which I can’t quite throw away.

new Mulligans

October 11th, 2010

With The Mulligan this week, we’ll keep the action in Queens with a fairly liberal loop of The Menahan Street Band’s “The Traitor” and the M-O-B-B. The idea was to do a cover of sorts, while taking the song in a completely direction. I spent a fair amount of time trying to find someone to re-do the vocals because I felt like this acapella had been beat to death when the song came out. One friend, who’d probably prefer to not be reminded of the recording hell I put them through, even went so far as to re-do all the vocals. But, alas, it just wouldn’t click. So here it is with the original vocal. Hope you enjoy.

The Mulligans #4 Royal Flush / Eleven

October 4th, 2010

More outtakes from that ill-conceived rock project. This time, we take a trip to Queens, New York to hear what might happen if the Rotten Apple’s Royal Flush were to rap over a joint by soft-as-twinkie-filling lady-loving John Mayer.

After slaughtering what became The Mulligans #2, Kaos decided that one verse wasn’t enough.  So he went back into the studio & murdered a second one!   Click below to listen & download:
