When I first heard it though, I was a littlenbsp;surprisednbsp;because I associated Dekk with the soulful hip-hop production he laced for Luck-One on tracks like ‘a href=”http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_1881205″ibCoulda Been Me/b/i/a’ amp; ‘a href=”http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_1881186″biWhen I Forget/i/b/a’ from ‘Beautiful Music’ but I quickly got over it.nbsp;/span/i/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”ispan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-style: normal;”br //span/ibr /div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”a href=”http://www.ahhsweetdude.com/_media/moxie-black-front-cover.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”img border=”0″ height=”400″ src=”http://www.ahhsweetdude.com/_media/moxie-black-front-cover.jpg” width=”400″ //a/divbr //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”ispan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-style: normal;”I remember before he sent me this record, Dekk asked menbsp;span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: inherit;””Y/span/span/ispan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: inherit;”ou a fan of electro-pop new wave type hip hop?nbsp;/span/spanspan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: inherit;”or are you more a traditionalist?”, to which I replied “I/span/spanspan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: inherit;”‘m on everything G as long as it sounds good, would say though that my 1st instinct is still always traditional sounding hip-hop…”, which is still so true but there was something about the record. I said at the time that the first stanza reminded me of Theophilus London which as Dekk pointed out is not even a bad thing. I liked the record so much amp; I even loved the singing parts that much more. IllaJ is a clever, witty amp; talented dude and these two work together, it’s a great mash-up amp; their album ‘How Did This Happen?’ is an amazing testament of this…/span/span/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”br //span/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”This album is quite hard to describe or explain. Yes it’s Electronica, its New Wave, it’s Alternative, it’s Experimental but it’s also quite more than that. Each song on the LP is different, with a totally different vibe from the previous or next song. I press play on this album amp; it’s an experience every time so I’ll just share with you, some of my favorite records from the album amp; you can check out the rest of it at your own time (which should really amp; truly be right after you’ve read this piece!)/span/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”border-collapse: collapse;”br //span/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”object height=”81″ width=”100%” param name=”movie” value=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2Fmoxieblack%2F06-chosensecret_url=false”/paramparam name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”/paramembed allowscriptaccess=”always” height=”81″ src=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2Fmoxieblack%2F06-chosensecret_url=false” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”100%”/embed /object a href=”http://soundcloud.com/moxieblack/06-chosen”/a/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”This here record titled ‘Chosen’ is my favourite record off of the album amp; in all honesty, one of my favourite records for 2010. I’m mostnbsp;definitelynbsp;certain that the play-count of this record on my blackberry is on some astronomical level! Everybody I’ve played this song to has fallen in love with it amp; I’m sure you will too. IllaJ on vocals is amazing on this amp; Dekk unleashes a massively head-bopping musical backdrop that is just right. It’s minimalist in parts, under-stated in others and never overbearing. This record just comes together perfectly!nbsp;/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”amp; there’s more where that came from…/divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”br //divdiv style=”text-align: justify;”object height=”81″ width=”100%” param name=”movie” value=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2Fmoxieblack%2F05-when-i-think-of-yousecret_url=false”/paramparam name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”/paramembed allowscriptaccess=”always” height=”81″ src=”http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsoundcloud.com%2Fmoxieblack%2F05-when-i-think-of-yousecret_url=false” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”100%”/embed /object a href=”http://soundcloud.com/moxieblack/05-when-i-think-of-you”/a br /br /What about those drum patterns on this record?

It’s a little short of 40 minutes which works perfectly because it leaves you wanting some more, well at least it left me wanting some more after I listened to it amp; I like that! It’s not filled with unnecessary fillers or tiresome records and as a whole, it comes out pretty compact, congruent, very thought-out amp; most importantly it’s GOOD Music from Track 1 to the end. Even the three bonus-tracks that conclude the album DO NOT disappoint. I implore you to download the album via the link right below… Even though you might be a ‘traditionalist’ when it comes to Hip-Hop Music or Music generally, I Still think Moxie Black are worth your time… At least 40 minutes of it!br /br /Download: a href=”http://www.mediafire.com/?953tw32j96j9m38″Moxie Black – How Did This Happen?/abr /br /Until the Next Time…br /br //div
