DaQuan - The Party Starter (Pt. II)
Al Gorilla - Michelle Obama
“Michelle Obama” should have been a huge deal. The track emerged over a year ago, accompanied by a ridiculously awesome stop-motion music video. There were raccoons! Tin foil garden tools! And a cardboard version of our first lady. In a world where “Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell” can go viral, this should have ruled the internet’s butthole.
Alas, that’s not what we’re here to discuss. The song’s creator DaQuan Motley, who you may know from Philly’s queer hip-hop squad Sgt. Sass, will be releasing a solo album entitled The NauQad Project. The first single “The Party Starter (Pt. II)” was recently released for your aural consumption, and it would behoove you to put it on your iPod or other random-ass device. You can even put it on your head and wear it as a funny hat. As long as it’s going in your ears, that’s all that matters.
If you’re expecting a club-banger in the style of Sgt. Sass, then you’ve come to the wrong place. The verses on “Party Starter” are delivered with a dash of old school flavor. Think Run DMC or early Beastie Boys, except there’s chanting and beautiful electronic instrumentation. It’s like getting attacked by a liger with Lindsay Lohan‘s face. But in a good way.
A-1 - Electric Feel ft Justice & MGMT
A-1 - I Will Come Back ft Holy Ghost
A-1 - Standing On A Cloud ft Madonna
A-1 - Fortress From The Ground
A-1 is one of those MCs who’s really impressive for his ability to slide into an existing track and recontextualize it into his own bootleg. See his insert lyrics on “Electric Feel”:
All along the western front
(She got what everybody want)
People line up to receive.
(She got what everybody need)
She got the power in her hand
(to turn a boy into a man)
To shock you like you won’t believe.
(she’ll stop your heart till you can’t breathe)
Saw her in the amazon
(Ain’t no sunshine when shes gone)
With the voltage running through her skin
(She’ll electrocute again)
Standing there with nothing on
(I can’t stay away for long)
She gonna teach me how to swim
(the water’s fine and I’m goin in)
A-1 and WooStaar (of SF hiphop unit XY SCATTER) have put together a pretty great mixtape in the form of THRASH & GROOVE, which three of the above four songs come from, and you can download the entire thing for free here. You can also get his debut non-bootleggy mixtape here.
