Solesides Greatest Bumps

by Various Artists
Solesides Greatest Bumps by Various Artists
Released: Jan 2004
Label: Quannum Projects
Formed at the University of California, Davis by rappers Gift of Gab, Lateef, and Lyrics Born, producers Chief Xcel and DJ Shadow and journalist Jeff Chang, Solesides represented the indie ideal. Its first self-released 12-inch, “Send Them / Entropy,” introduced the world to DJ Shadow, whose mysterious assembly of drum breaks led UK critics to dub his style “trip hop.” But as this compilation illustrates, the crew’s talents went much deeper than Shadow’s justifiably celebrated career. On “Rhyme Like A Nut!” and “Lyric Fathom,” Gift of Gab from Blackalicious proves himself a formidable freestyler and punch line artist. Meanwhile, Lateef the Truthspeaker’s scientific description of rotting flesh on “The Wreckoning” is startlingly graphic.
