Thoughtful Popper / Chamber Pop

2 classic tracks from the JW Theme Music vault collection that have been sampled by Danger Mouse for his collaborative project with MF DOOM “The Mouse & The Mask”.

"Thoughtful Popper" is a smooth, cool, retro, orchestral, Latin-jazz funk (phew!) instrumental with laid back grooves, catchy riffs and sultry bluesy flute and violin melodies.

"Chamber Pop" is a retro, groovy and mysterious orchestral jazz-funk film score instrumental with beguiling violin and flute melodies and mellow moments.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Real heads library funk here. Sampled by Danger Mouse and MF DOOM. These two originals are an absolute decadence of orchestral grooves with lush instrumentation and skilled drumming their driver. Nice presentation too. What's not to love?!

Psycho 2000 / White Spiritual

"Psycho 2000" - a dark but funky theme that begins with an occulting Italian echo-oscillator drone that is soon followed by pulsating bass and breakbeat drums, leads to tremolo guitars, an ostinato on electric mandolas, strings climbing eloquent ladders, otherworldly electronics, and a cinematic finale.

An evocation of a parade of wooden nutcracker soldiers elaborately dressed in gold-trimmed black uniforms down a wide avenue decorated with mardi gras beads and animal skulls upon golden cobblestones toward a tornado spiraling out purple-hued glissandos and curlicues of elephant smoke.

"White Spiritual" - head nod action, the twinkling of a late 60’s Vox Continental II with sickly transistors, the noodling matrix of an intergalactic telephone exchange carried on a bed of bouncy bass with a firm backbeat.

The Johnny Guitar Watson-esque bite and sting of a ‘67 Teisco guitar preludes slabs of unison dark brown moog and organ giving way to the dance of fingers over the black naturals and white sharps of the Continental II.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Hefty library breaks double header that's bound to tickle the fancy of potential beatsmiths, rappers, funk DJs and, of course, 45 collectors. The drums crack, the guitars fuzz and the organs chime in a glorious cacophany!
