"hazaradous", "diabolique", "cenubites" with kool keith...godfather don brought numerous classics to our crates - and disappeared out of the blue.
there were a lotta rumours about what he was into - but i won't let you rack your brain anymore - don's focussing on his old love, the jazz, again and build up a group named "the open mind".
The crew of, the favourite digital place to dwell for every diggin-head, publish a collection of six unreleased godfather don
joints, which don recorded for the strech and bobbito show back in the days, with their second special-vinyl-project.
this ain't no weak bootlegging project, it's straight legit and the whole project was realised with don's personal cooperation.
there're only 150 handnumbered copies released - the first batch of 45 was signed by don himself. half of the profit went back to don, who could afford studiosessions for his jazzgroup with it, the other half will be used to afford upcoming dwg special projects.6 tracks are presented on this instant-collectors-item, which really deserve to be presented to the -even limited- mass. The titeltrack, "slave of new york" is my favurite cut on there, but every other track (the architect, do i come of, 7 degrees of elevation, inverted as well as colors of death) do
have the quality of being a potential 12".holding this 12" in my hands creates sum kinda paradox feelings:
on one hand it's nice to own a record of such an collectable and musical value, which was released in 2007 - cause most of the releases nowadays can only dream about a sound like this - on the other hand it's sad to know that only a few people will be able to own this record and that there're surely a few more heavyweight tracks like these in don's archive which will probably stay unheared forever.
all copies were sold witihin less than 2 weeks and, looking back to dwg's first vinylrelease, which was phill most chill's "be intelligent" ep, not
even ebay will help most of you getting it. but, as we all know, hope never dies - so keep your eyes open and your fingers crossed!
