G-Side‘s Starshipz and Rocketz, a fourth quarter release from an independent label in Huntsville, Alabama ~ Slowmotion Soundz ~ is without question one of the greatest misses of 2008.Â Produced by Block Beataz (think Organized Noize, UGK, Three 6), don’t let the Afrofuturist/”Afronaut” title mislead you,Â the album is down to earth, cohesive, remarkable, unpredictable and exciting.Â Read Andrew Noz’s review here.
Why is the duo’s name missing from the album cover? It only has the record label and the album title, as in “Slowmotion Soundz presents Starshipz and Rocketz” prompting Amazon to call the group Starshipz and Rocketz. CD Baby got it right.Â Can someone please help identify that sample? I’ve noticed samples on the album ranging from Enya to Isaac Hayes.
