Dope, fully unreleased project outta Queens from 1994-1997 finally gets a release. Included are 5 tracks from the 1994 demo tape period [recorded from the original studio masters] as well as 3 tracks penned for a potential Makin' Records release in 1997, which never happened. Here's some more info from one of th main men, producer & MC, Mr Omega >>

 

How did you cats meet?


Bug and I both came up in Cambria Heights, Queens, but hadn't met until the Fall of '91. A number of emcees from the neighborhood were teaming up to perform at a talent show at Bayside High School, and the dude who was getting us in told me he had a young emcee who he wanted to join us. I told my dude to bring him through to my mom's house and let me hear him, since I was considered one of the main emcees of the area back then. So the next day he brings over this dude who called himself Fiction, real young but he's got genuine flow to him. I still had my former DJ's setup in the house so I threw on some doubles and spun some loops to hear him spit, and he was readily accepted for the show. After we did the talent show, my man Derrick came to me and wanted to form a group that would include Fiction and some other heads from the area, and wanted me to lead, which I did reluctantly. We started out as Point Blank, at which time Fiction changed his name to Bugz, and went through a couple of changes in roster and name, turning into Dreadnaughts, but went looking for something new when we came across the Dredknotz, who were also on the scene. By this time we'd become friends with Cella Dwellaz, and it was UG who suggested we take the name Morlocks, based on the X-Men comics, but we decided we wanted to be seen separate from that and added an 'h’ to the name, then becoming Mhorlocks. We had also eventually pared down to just myself and Bugz, as I was prepared to leave the unit, but Bugz wanted to continue teaming up, so I agreed since we were feeding on each other's energy and it made for a good combo. Of course that was only the beginning.

 

What's the story of you getting music & music production?


You can say I got into it at various stages, although hip-hop is where I seem to have committed the most. As a kid I took Classical piano lessons for about 7 years, and during that time, in about 1985, is when I wrote my first set of lyrics. Since I was always pretty quiet I didn't even let it really be known until about 4 years later when I first performed in a show at my HS, Brooklyn Tech. This was also around the time that I first went into a studio to try recording a demo, that was musically so trash! Nothing but drums, no other real instrumentation at all. It wasn't until later, going to other studios, that I would naturally vibe with the engineers and they'd offer to teach me the equipment during our sessions, it was like paying for classes while at the same time making my own music. My real mentor turned out to be my man Christos Tsantilis who ran Circuit Studios. He taught me the ASR-10 in detail and things really took off from there. Up until that point, I was making Point Blank's production using a 4-second delay for loops, a Casio SK-5 keyboard, and an Oberheim DX, with a whole component stereo system just for the turntable access. If Fred Sanford of Sanford & Son was a producer, he'd be me... but I guess it did the job because I produced just about all the tracks for Mhorlocks, except for a couple Poka did later, and some producers we worked with along the way like J. Prinns who worked with our whole Critical Mass click, and God's Child, who we met while working with Makin' Records.

 

Who did you come up listening to?


Coming up in the age of variety radio, I listened to just about every genre -- jazz, hip-hop, soul, R&B, rock. In the course of an afternoon, I could hear Doug E. Fresh, Hall & Oates, then Stevie Wonder, and in no particular order. Then spending time with my dad, he exposed me to reggae, calypso, soca, and was really my introduction to listening to jazz music like John Coltrane and Art Blakey. So all of that had an influence on me.

GREY DAYS


(chorus)
Grey days always be a better place
there is no darkness to turn off back in the days
Grey days and their nuances
there is always a light that will heal the scars
(repeat)

It's another day in the rainy city
The cold in the street comes the clouds
I encourage you to the floor and check again
Apathy faces wet midday
Lumps in the back and there is no one worth a penny
Many In the struggle and it is heard that they are slaves
Others with the most honest open minds
But there are those without shame the sweat of others have stolen
Demons that are loose in the streets
Making yours on gray days do not fail
On the floor and precise delinquent
No time For that only the love triangle
Mental depression has consummated today's plans will be better on a sunny day
The dew in the morning will make me see more clearly what in the dark I do not see and I believe
the days Like this one of plague
I better wrap myself in rap and thus spend what I hate
I wrap myself in my world and so I sink
There is mud everywhere I take every second
Letters in my inks, philosophy I infuse
Spend the day better A gray day that is deep

(chorus)
Grey days always be a better place
there is no darkness to turn off my back in the days
Grey days and their nuances
there is always a light that will heal the scars
(repeat)

My gray days back in the days
In the haze of the dawn
Elsample and its sound what accompanies me
It makes me stronger all that hurts me
I look at the sky accompanied by my ego
Of my little companion the Flava Flava
Stay back back in the track right now
And my problems I leave to the time
That as their words carry the wind
Try, change the day with steez with knowledge, I lie
No tears or complaints that does not flow is my torment
The rest everything comes, I only hear what suits me
Eliminate what hurts
Murder is preferred
Miss people only when it suits them
what's stopping you
The only sure thing is that I die
That few hurt in the stereo like cella dwellas
They will have the memory of this madman who
With hip hop consoles
That with his mind flies ...
Who with his mind dreams
With your mind ...

 


El Legado

 

Full of ink lines and analog versions,
rap does not need any instructions Check
Is my legacy Thousands of generations do not stop diggin in the crates
and away from the hate
Follow your progress no matter the weight
long process like padron to the cheese chico
between the Jazz between Blues, you will learn of hi-hats and drums
Find the classic the basic this magic rhythm will face the tragic
And if fame accompanies you go where you go better if you keep silent you'll feel it if you fail
To make history like Lavoe and Rivera
to sound in Cuba on a sidewalk or in his car in the middle of the road
Open your eyes every day
abuse your daring
destroy what does not serve to be his day to day
be eternal in his speakers
My dream of the owner of the world
and if you feel unique remember to thank for your corduroy and your audience
*Wordup

(scratch)

It is my legacy to give it all without twisting my arm
seeing dreams come true and taking them step by step
Return my yearning for a hearing legend
make my words remain in their retentive and so live
Speak with ownership of the subject
do their accounts and tell their theorems is my Legacy
I put the points on the ies
more seriously respect it and that's how it is
My commitment God did it by putting in front a culture that assures me to be different
I do not put obstacles if the show is my Dream
it is an article that takes more passion than commitment
Is the Essence the succession of the inheritance
some are money first beliefs
It's not hip hop, It is not the music itself, Not wanting to rape or be the best MC is not like this
Is constancy perseverance is the patience that we handle since childhood
fulfill the goals above any dilemma is not a problem because it will always be worth it

Nomaads - The Throwback EP 1992-1995

[R.I.P. Baretta 16th July 2017]

 

 

This 3 three piece from the Bronx has sadly now only one living member, Arsonists' MC Q-Unique. Peep this short interview for more info on this dope early-mid 90's NY project - overseen by ATCQ producer Skeff Anslem. Yeah, he gets props too!!

 

How did you guys meet?

We were a trio, myself, MC Baretta & DJ Mel Ice. Story begins with Mel Ice reaching out to me because he like what I did with C+C music factory, which I thought was weird, but anyway we started building, I was recording solo material at the time but always wanted to have a group. I met Barretta though his brother and my Rock Steady crew fam, Fast Feet.

Where did you record?

We recorded our single "The Ultimate" at D&D studios, the rest was recorded at Platinum Island, Skeff Anselms studio and Groovy Lou's studio.

Did you know anyone in the biz to help setting things up?

I knew a few people but, looking back now, it probably wasnt the right time for anything to happen, even though we experienced some cool moments.


Were any labels interested?

Not really, but then again we didnt really understand the ins & outs of the game to truly play, and because of circumstances way beyond any control, the group never had the chance to grow.

Did you do many shows back then?

No, but the shows that we did were cool because of what they were, 1 was opening for Grandmaster Flash & the Furious 5 while sharing out set with Tony Touch & D-Stroy who would later become my bandmate in the Arsonists, and the other show was Q-tip from a Tribe Called Quest inviting us up during their set to have a live cypher with them at a Zulu jam in the Bronx River projects community center.

So whats the general story of the group?

Myself, Mel Ice & Baretta formed our group, The Nomaads in the streets of the Lower East side in NYC, that's where Mel lived. 1st we started recording demos with a producer that had been working with me named Thomas Owens. Then from that point, Skeff Anselm (A Tribe Called Quest, Brand Nubian, MC Serch and many more) reached out to Mel Ice to build on some music, so we recorded a few demos with him. Through Skeff is where I started to learn about the biz and he connected us with Q-tip who would invite us to the studio while they were recording "Lyrics To Go", I mention that to give an idea of how "sorta" close we were to possibilities. Then Thomas introduced me to Groovy Lou, who would go on to produce our 1st & only single "The Ultimate" released on a very small record label from the Bronx called VIP hip hop. Tragically during that time Mel Ice passed away. That knocked us out for a little, then we decided to push on and recorded music with Groovy Lou. Baretta disappeared into the streets and I did most of the final recordings with Lou. It was at this time that I met Dstroy from the Arsonists and he invited me to build with the crew. Oddly enough, Groovy Lou ended up disappearing as well, and sadly Baretta passed away last month, July 15th 2017.  The Nomaads was one of the roughest patches in my career but there were moments that made it seem like we were doing something good. Overall I miss everyone involved because theyre not just part of my career, they were part of my upbringing.  You have no idea how surreal it is to have Bob/Chopped Herring make this happen, especially at this emotional time with the passing of my former bandmate. Thanks so much for making this happen.
