Product Description

Amazon.com

Here's a lounge-worthy compilation for hip-hop hipsters of all persuasions. DJ Nu-Mark, of Jurassic 5 fame, has crafted a mellow, smooth mix CD that successfully merges mid-'90s backpacker rap with its successor, the indie underground, and also offers an ambitious selection of foreign MCs the opportunity to snag some well-needed shine time. Nu-Mark sparks it off with a nice selection of slow funk burners before streaming into a run of artfully chopped up classics, highlights of which are an alternate version of Organized Konfusion's "Fudge Pudge" and a groovy Latin instrumental by the Beatnuts. Surprisingly, the underground rap that follows sounds pretty ho-hum in comparison. But Hands On regains momentum when Shurik’n, of the French group IAM, kicks off the international section of the disc. Nu-Mark and J-Live take it back Stateside and end things on a perfect note with a brand new tune entitled "Brand Nu Live." --Rebecca Levine

Dj Nu Mark is one of them.

Also the showcase of international emcees was both refreshing and enlightening.

The way he blends them together is flawless.

Considering that his fellow group member and Turntable partner `Cut Chemist' has released a handful of mix albums, it seems strange that Nu-Mark should take so long to come through with a solo effort of his own. Was it going to be a furious scratch-laded live mixtape like `Dj Shadow's' live mix performances, or a throw back to old school hip-hop `Grandmaster Flash' style???.....In the end, it turned out to be neither. Instead he's delivered an album akin to `Cut Chemist's' hard to find "Rare Equations" mix album, which pitches it's tent firmly in Funk & Rare groove, with elements of smooth hip-hop & Rhythm & blues part of the running order.
After the brief intro, `Eddy Senay's' 70's horn laded "Down Home", is something straight off a Shadow/Cut Chemist live mix tape, slow groove gives way to blaxploitation funk, it all moves in an agreeably slow hod nodding fashion, and starts and it means to go on. "Organized Konfusion's - "Fudge Funk" is a tightly woven piece of celebratory funk that ups the tempo and sounds vaguely familiar (undoubtedly sampled by other songs, for its superb piano/bass line). The relatively sedate pace of this mix album begins to gather steam here, and sounds reminiscent of `Funkadelic's' best work, those with an appreciation of funk, will revel in Nu-Mark's considerable years of obscure musical crate digging, that are so obviously on display here.

An admirer of turntablism in general an a avid fan of Jurassic 5. Hands On was a welcome addition to my collection of CD's I'm glad I bought . The album is very diverse with tracks ranging from funky lounge vibes to classic yes yallin throw your hands in the air type grooves. Track 12 with Chali 2na was in my opinion the most addictive, but it is hard to pick a favorite; too many good tracks to choose from. Also the showcase of international emcees was both refreshing and enlightening. Pure art and love on this disc, no commercial filler crap.

Being a big fan of j5 and after hearing Chali2na's solo track on the album I knew I had to pick this one up. Even though not all song are Nu-Mark's tracks, this is an awesome mixtape to chill to, with stuff on it that you won't know about until Nu-Mark exposes you to it. The first part of the CD are old funk songs that fit in with Nu-Mark's influences when he makes beats. The way he blends them together is flawless. He even took an old funk song, "rubber bumpers," from an NFL film documentary. Then you get to the second part of the album, the underground hip-hop part that you really got the album to listen to. It starts which Chali2na's solo track, which is just plain awesome, and then goes into awesome underground tracks, not only from underground American rappers, but from rappers from the U.K., France, Germany, and Austraillia. You never knew underground rap outside of the U.S was that crazy, but Nu-Mark exposes it to people and does it flawlessly. Along with a warm-up funk section in the beginning of the CD to just chill to.
If you understand how he makes Jurassic 5's beats, this is the stuff where it comes from, which makes it even better.

This is defiantly one of the best abstract underground Hip-Hop/Funk CD's I have ever listened too. The cd seems to be on loop in my cd-player I don't really mind. Numark has also done a great job exposing some great international hip-hop to this set. I also really enjoyed the J5 connection with the Chali 2na track. Oh! The Persian Farshad Radio bit still cracks me up after hearing it a million times.
Overall, If your reading any of these reviews for this cd then this is a must have cd, you wont regret it.
Also if you get a chance to see J5 or Numark live, DO IT! Numark is a magician when it comes to turning many objects into musical instruments.
Peace!

This album is a consistant work of production art. I think Doze Green should get on the canvas with this one. I've seen what Nu-Mark can do with two hotel bathroom sinks and two happy hour pan covers and its truly inspiring to see someone trying to make music out of stuff people wouldnt even dream of using. A rubberband on the tone-arm, twangin it like a bass guitar? WHAT!? are you serious.. all i gotta say is that finally my money was well spent on an album that hasnt left my player since i got it. cop this...you won't regret it...but only if your looking for artistic flavor and funky groov-matic tracks. none of that mainstream played-out bull-ish.. cop it! you're collection is naked without it. PEACE.
