View Full Version : AotW (10/18/09): GETEYE - Above the Clouds & Orphans of Cush - White Noize

10-18-2009, 08:00 AM
October has been an insane month for me for finding undiscovered 2009 gems. Both of these records have a legit shot at appearing in my top 10 list. GETEYE is a producer from France that channels Oh No and Onra - pretty much a clinic on post-Dilla production styles. The guy's young, out of nowhere, and just dropped his beat-tape (Above the Clouds) for free:

Next up are the Orphans of Cush, a UK supergroup that can definitely challenge the Wu-Tang Clan for international lyrical supremacy. This isn't your run-of-the-mill grime rap record; in fact it shares much more with US east-coast hip-hop than anything else. The beats aren't terribly dense, but they complement the lyrical barrage extremely well. Comprised of Kyza, Masikah, M9, and Cyrus Malachi, this is easily a top 10 record of 2009.

Nice. Buying White Noize when I get paid but this will do in the meantime.

Yeah that Orphans of Cush album is really good

10-18-2009, 01:06 PM
I think "Why?" and "Where We At?" are my favourites on first listen. Really like it though.

10-18-2009, 01:24 PM
let's keep calling things post-Dilla

10-18-2009, 01:55 PM
It's better than post-rock

10-18-2009, 02:07 PM
yeah, but everything is better than post-rock

10-20-2009, 03:49 PM
Sobhi, are you reviewing White Noize? I have one written but I'll wait if you wanna go first.

10-20-2009, 03:59 PM
Go right ahead, I have Sole, GETEYE, and Royce in queue right now.

Glad the AotW could be of some service to sputnik reviewers ha.

10-20-2009, 04:01 PM
It's going up. This one's an epic....

10-20-2009, 04:13 PM
nice nice. yeah i probably wouldn't have gotten around to it for at least a month -- good to see someone pick it up.

10-21-2009, 10:05 AM
Cheers for these, excited to check out both. White Noize is a godawful name but I'll play along.

10-22-2009, 02:19 PM
back online after 9 days or so, will check it out in due time though since it is 2009 i should place some sort of importance above others

10-22-2009, 03:02 PM
just place importance on stuff i say is good ;-p

you'll probably like geteye at least dude.

10-22-2009, 11:14 PM
So is it Cush as in the Hindu Kush or some other thing?

Oh, cush is drugs judging from it so far :p. Gosh I'm square.

10-23-2009, 01:12 AM
Or the dude from the Bible.

10-23-2009, 01:18 AM
Probably a combination of both. It's a nice name.

Just had a start to finish listen of the album, really enjoyed it.

10-23-2009, 06:32 PM
ugh iai namedropped prolyphic & reanimator again

10-24-2009, 06:08 AM
for what, the second time ever?

edit: i suppose technically the second time would be 'again' tbf

10-24-2009, 07:33 AM
I don't know if I dig this GETEYE as much. It's kind of cool but I'm not sure what to really think about when I listen through a beat tape. Is the idea that it's like a portfolio of your production?

10-24-2009, 08:10 AM
yeah pretty much

10-25-2009, 04:48 AM
Orphans of Cush album is mad. I expected it to be really grimy I guess, probably because I don't know much Uk hiphop, but it was sick. Thoroughly impressed.

10-26-2009, 02:38 PM
anyone dig on GETEYE?

10-26-2009, 02:40 PM
I thought it was okay, I'm not really in the right headspace for beat tape appreciation though.

****ing love Orphans Of Cush I'll be paying for a hard copy.

10-26-2009, 07:10 PM
orphans of cush is so good, will have to get myself a copy

10-26-2009, 07:34 PM
anyone dig on GETEYE?

yeah, it's definitely pretty cool

i mean, orphans of cush kinda overshadows it for this week's AOTW feature, but i still like it

10-27-2009, 01:12 AM
anyone dig on GETEYE?Downloaded it, but haven't given it a listen yet.

10-27-2009, 10:53 AM
white noize is good, might get geteye idk

10-27-2009, 11:21 AM

10-27-2009, 12:21 PM
last beat konducta was a bit disappointing

10-27-2009, 03:18 PM

10-29-2009, 03:07 AM
