Hi-C - From DFDUB to LAX


From DFDUB to LAX (2003)

There was a time in the early to mid 00’s where crate diggers made DJ Shadow inspired instrumental hip hop. A spin off of that was slowed down, slightly triply style coined “Blazing Downtempo”. Soul Strut regular and Texas based producer Hi-C (along with co-conspirator Wilson) created a series of cool 45s that demo’d such music as the magical band Rehash. This was a promotional mix for one of their releases in 2003 that ranges from Downtempo to Dub music to Jazz Funk?
