DOWNLOAD The Maplewood Playfield
a bulk of these tracks were composed during a period when the home studio was located in a cozy attic atop a house across the street from The Maplewood Playfield.
in the summertime we’d run extension cables from the house, over the trees, and across the street to the field to power turntables and speakers while the homie from Whitecenter who hooked me up with my first car grilled hella koobideh and joojeh kabob for about 30 of our friends.
the crazy landlady tried to remodel the house while we were living in it, at one point putting the kitchen entirely outta commission simultaneously talkin bout raising the rent. she also smelled hella bad.
The Maplewood Playfield contains (with a couple exceptions) the breakbeat-iest sounding instrumentals out of the first three collections and concludes the “drum-break era” of my production. these 15 tracks were selected to serve as the production bed for the eponymous Common Market album.
