Fuck yea, a new Outfit EP. This one is meant to spotlight Dallas’ burgeoning underground scene, hence the features on every track – they are all local guys who were features in Mel’s scene report for Noisey.

FUCKING FINALLY, something new from one of my favorite groups working today. Been waiting for a followup to Cognac/Four Corner Room for over a year now, hopefully this is the first glimpse of it.

Mel of The Outfit, TX – Dirty South Rydan (Prod. by Mel)

Another video from Mel and Dorian’s double album combo Cognac / Four Corner Room. That came almost a year ago already so the streets really demand the next installment of their five-part “Texan Chronicles” series, which by my calculations should be JayHawk’s solo.
Premiered via Central Track

The Outfit, Tx – Stalactight (Prod By Shuttle Music)

Great new loosie from The Outfit, Tx. Their first track in a while involving outside production and it does sound a little different, darker and more minimal than most of their recent output.

Also, I recently interviewed these guys for the Fresh Out The Box radio show. We talked about the group’s history, future plans and how they ended up making a southern-fried space cadet rap opus with 7 minute long songs. As it turns out, Starships & Rockets: Cooly Fooly Space Age Funk sounds like a Texas rap take on a late 70s Stevie Wonder record entirely on purpose. More about that is STREAMING HERE. The interview runs in the last 20 mins of the show.

Luke Sardello – Texas Bread (Obscure Texas G-Funk Mix)

Found this mysterious mix of awesome 90s Texas g-funk on the Showin’ Love Records soundcloud page. There wasn’t much info there but a little digging confirmed that the author is indeed Luke Sardello as the cover implies, and turned up the tracklist for it. I’m familiar with a few of these artist, more are unknown to me, but more importantly this shit rides like a motherfucker. Fans of old Texas rap and g-funk in general will not be disappointed.
1 One Gud Cide – Contradictions
2 NHC – The Tightest
3 SK – Playa Pro
4 Dallas Gold – Livin’ The Life
5 Dank Sounds – My Indo
6 Southside Playaz – Drought Season
7 Pimp Playa Hustlas – Check It In
8 T.I.C. – Troubleman
9 Precise – Catch Fire
10 Southside Secret Society – True Warriors
11 The Botany Boyz – Cloverland 2000
12 The E-Klipz – Da’ Place to Get Down
13 Go Hard Black – It Don’t Stop

Showing Love Records is also putting out 2 EPs of other obscure rap from the same era/area. The previews for these EPs sound really good, you can check them out on the same soundcloud page HERE

Help The Outifit, Tx Make A New Album

Last year The Outifit, Tx made Starships & Rockets: Cooly Fooly Space Age Funk. It was a great, wildly underrated album, one of my favorites of 2012 by a large margin. The album was a little slow to catch on with fans and critics, but gradually it did spread through the interwebz to receive some very positive reactions. Fawning reviews mushroomed throughout the blogsphere, and it seemed like every person that heard the album liked it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like enough people actually bought the thing.
The group is now working on a new album, and as these things sometimes go, they need a little help. Watch their Kickstarter video above, read the write-up for it HERE, but more importantly listen to their last album. Listen to The Ramen Noodles EP too, another great album which was my introduction to the group’s music. Hopefully, you’ll see why I’m inclined to actually go out of my way to ask you to help these guys (instead of just pirating their music to line my own pockets with all these wild racks of blog money.)
