Editorial Reviews

Quakers is a hip hop collective of 35+ members: Fuzzface (Geoff Barrow of Portishead), Katalyst (Ashley Anderson), 7STU7 (Stuart Matthews, Portishead studio engineer) and a team of their favorite MCs from around the globe. It's an epic concept album that plays right through without any pauses between tracks. The second disc is the instrumentals. Some of the instrumental tracks appear in Banksy's film, Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Not sure about the five-star reviews, maybe I'm just a sucker for more conceptual full-lengths as opposed to hodgepodge compilations like Quakers more resembles. There's a few great, standout tracks. There's a lot of filler. Clocking in at 41 tracks, it'd be a monumental feat to not have filler. I feel that this is more a case of quantity over quality. If you're looking for something to just throw on at a party, or in your car, or just for whatever just to have a hip hop vibe and not really pay much attention to merit of the actual tracks, Quakers may be worth your time. It does get three stars because it is still genuine hip hop and (mostly) nothing too superficial. Just know what you're getting. Nothing here is groundbreaking or that original, and much of it is forgettable.

The first album from hip-hop collective Quakers is all about sprawl. Led by a production team of Fuzzface (aka Geoff Barrow of Portishead), Katalyst (aka Australian producer Ashley Anderson) and 7STU7 (Portishead studio engineer Stuart Matthew) their debut is a globe-spanning collaboration between over 35 international rappers and producers, with an almost ridiculously ambitious 41-song tracklist. Yes, trying to find cohesion among so many vastly different parts isn’t always easy, and the gigantic scope means that a few weaker tracks inevitably made it onto the final product. However, Quakers “peaks and valleys” approach is OK because cohesion isn’t the point. It’s meant to be messy, and it’s meant to give you a mixtape-like sampling of what’s going on in underground hip-hop around the world right now. It makes perfect sense for the album to be released via Stones Throw, as Barrow and his cohorts seem well-versed in the label’s freewheeling aesthetic, and almost frequent disregard for the rules of what makes a successful hip hop record. There are also guest appearances from Stones Throw regulars M.E.D., Guilty Simpson, Aloe Blacc and the influence of Madlib and J-Dilla is readily apparent in Quakers’ psychedelic boom-bap productions and all those wigged-out samples that regularly get dropped in and around the rapping.Read more ›

I am sure that 2012 will have many amazing releases this year and this is one of the 1st. This is a Stones Throw release and for those who don't know here is some info I grabbed off their site. "Quakers is a hip-hop collective boasting 35 members which orbits around a core of three producers: Fuzzface, 7-Stu-7 and Katalyst.
Fuzzface is better known as Portishead's Geoff Barrow, a long-time Stones Throw supporter in touch with Peanut Butter Wolf since championing the Jaylib album back in 2004. 7-Stu-7 is Portishead's engineer and in-house producer at Invada Records in the UK. Katalyst is one of the most respected producers in Australia and a partner in Invada Records." Anyways the rhymes and beats are on point on this album. Most tracks are 1-3 minutes and feature anywhere from 1 to multiple MC's. The beats are really interesting and switch up a lot so it stays fresh through the whole album. Very interesting cast of unknowns and big names in the underground from both the west and east coast. If you are a huge fan of Lil Wayne, Drake, and a lot of the mainstream stuff out now I dunno if you will dig this album. It also seems to flow together very well and reminds me of some of Madlibs work. If you are already a fan of Madlib and Stones Throw Records this cd is a no brainer. If you are a fan of Hip Hop in general this would also be a good investment. Enjoy
