This project started up about 4 years ago. Tabb licensed us the "Brothers in Da Hood" joint, a known Heavy Grail - but we were always looking for more tracks to make a solid project. It took a series of collectors and hardcore Hip Hop Headz to take it to the next. PQuest, a collector and music afficiando from Germany hit me up requesting we release the Big Tabb demos from 1994 - some short snippets had been upped to the tube. Even though it'd been a while, I got back in touch with Tabb [aka Jakk Frost] to find out if he still had the masters of his early demos - he did not. I got back in touch with P and asked if he knew anyone who had seen the demo tape around. It turned out that a copy of the original demo tape had recently sold at auction. The buyer was known to Herring and after a few months the high quality tape transfers were in the hands [fins?] of Herring. 

Oh and how is the record? One of the DOPEST on Herring. Very much reminiscent of a "classic 1994 album" - production comes from undercover Philly producer MG aka Mentally Gifted and the beats are on a Beatnuts/Extra P/Groove Merchants/Pete Rock tip - ha - sounds good right? IT IS!!!!

Originally recorded in 1991, but finally released in 1994, the "Suckas Brevity/Hostile Lifestyle" 12" by New Jersey MC & producer Beneficence is what you would probably refer to as an "obscure record". Only 100 copies were ever pressed on indie label Big House Records , so Herring & Beneficence's label Ill Adrenaline thought it might be a good idea to repress the 12" and to add some previously unreleased Beneficence jawn from the 90's. Chopped Herring Records is proud to present the "Contents Under Pressure EP". Peep it!!

 

 

Tracks:

A1 Contents Under Pressure
A2 Suckas Brevity

Speakeasy - Jive Turkeys & Cat Daddies [CD] 1995 TX

 

 

Just released by Herring on vinyl, here is a real obscure project outta Austin, Texas from 1995. The group never officially released anything. There was just this full length demo tape. Reminiscent of the Bay Area sound, on a Hiero/Dereliks/Sacred Hoop [?] tip, this underground bomb was handed to us by French demo tape collector Hakan Dougpark - thanks bro - killer [f]ish. Here's a few words from MC & Producer Tony Hardman [now a footwear designer based in Portland,OR]:

 

"Kichi and I met working in a record store when I lived in Austin in 94. We were 20 years old and as Hip Hop heads, we hit it off right away. He had been rapping and mixing/scratching for years and I had been involved in a few other groups rapping and doing production. Naturally we came together, inspired by all of the amazing music coming out at that time (the B.U.M.s, Nas, BIG, Common, Artifacts, Co Flo). We spent nights in my mom's garage or in a little lab room at his crib writing and recording as much as we could. The album was recorded over the course of a year in 94/95 with an EPS 16 plus and a Tascam 4 track recorder. We went on through the late 90s gaining local notoriety through the college Hip Hop radio (House of Phat Beats) and performing at a few different spots in the city. Eventually I moved to Denver to go back to school around 2000. The rest is history."
