Thelonious Onederful Esquire presents

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Thriller, Thelonious Onederful Esquire aka THE ONE just hit me with his new concept remix soundtrack album ‘Thrill Kill.’ Using elements and samples from Thriller, he devised a new soundtrack to go along with his favorite movie ‘The Killer’ directed by John Woo. Using samples from the legendary Thriller album, THE ONE gives us a new interpretation of the songs designed specially for scenes in ‘The Killer.’ Make sure to peep each song all the way through as the flips the beats in multiple styles and up to three times on some tracks. This is strictly for fun and promotional use only. Don’t be afraid, click the banner to download.

Wordplay is the theme over the ‘Human Beat Box’ and the original ‘Stick Em’ beat laced with some nice Fat Boy Drums. Don’t be shy, click the banner to download.

The Trout's Top 10 Albums of 2008

1) Damon Aaron ‘Highlands’ (Ubiquity)
Horrible album artwork, but brilliant album. It reminds me of a really smooth Ben Harper mixed w/ Maxwell (in his prime).

iTunes Amazon

2) Beck ‘Modern Guilt’ (DGC)
Love what he did w/ the mellow vocals and the sporadic DM beats. Great pairing of like minds.

iTunes Amazon

3) Jazzanova ‘Of All the Things’ (Verve)
Sounds like straight up 70’s pimp soul. I really love the record, but wish they’d have left the rapping off of it.

iTunes Amazon

4) Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan ‘Sunday at Devil Dirt’ (Fontana)
Quite a dark album, but I love the dynamic of pairing Lanegan’s raw gravely groan with Isobel’s light and airy softness.

iTunes Amazon

5) King Kooba & The Trout ‘Slow-Gin Volume 6’ (O-W-E)
This mix sounds better to me with every listen.

6) Al Green ‘Lay it Down’ (Blue Note)
It’s great to hear Al Green sounding like Al Green again. Props to Questlove for helping put it together.

iTunes Amazon

7) TV on the Radio ‘Dear Science’ (DGC)
This album broadens the horizons for one of the most intriguing rock bands in the world.

iTunes Amazon

8) The Black Keys ‘Attack & Release’ (Nonesuch)
Another DM produced album in the top 10. Dude had a great year! These two white boys from Ohio rock like none other.

iTunes



Amazon

9) Clutchy Hopkins & Shawn Lee ‘The Clutch of the Tiger’ (Ubiquity)
Great jazz breaks and downtempo oddness. Love it.

iTunes Amazon

10) DJ Mark Farina ‘Mushroom Jazz 6’ (Om)
Props go out to my man Mark for keeping it fresh for over fifteen years!

As the smells of turkey and pumpkin pie fill the streets, the anticipation mounts as we all wait for the arrival of family members, friends, good meals and some much needed rest. It is only appropriate that with Thanksgiving comes the release of Raashan Ahmad’s newest music video ‘Give Thanks’. True to form, Raashan serves up a healthy helping of feel good hip-hop with this newest video. In the video, Ahmad pays tribute to some historical heroes as he flows in front of a montage of images of Martin Luther King, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Fredrick Douglass, Malcolm X and many more. With his down to earth vibe and poetic lyrics, Raashan reminds us to not only be thankful for the good times that make us smile, but also for the hardest of times that make us stronger. Raashan wraps up themes of family, friendship and faith in beats and rhymes and we can all be thankful for. Check out this music video if one of the things that you are thankful for is conscious hip-hop music, I know I am! So, while you are indulging in that last slice of pie this weekend, don’t forget to give thanks and check out Raashan’s new video.

Let us know what you think, leave a comment.

Peace.
