Hood Reishi is a genre defining album produced entirely by Ruckazoid. He’s released music on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D music label with Hudson Mohawke, and albums with J Dilla, Dj Shadow, a #1 iTunes single with Breakbot, and most recently featured on Machinedrum’s Human Energy as a vocalist.

Ruckazoid is known to raise the bar and his new Hood Reishi moniker is no different. The concept of this album was to use analog equipment from the past to create a new sound for today. Electricity runs through each beastly machine to produce each sound, with drums from a real TR-808 and other various analog drum devices connected to create the ultimate boombox. Since the recordings are analog, the album is able to push the sonic limits, making you feel like your system is about to explode, without destroying your ears.

It’s a sound that must be experienced, and a sound that cannot be produced with software. The process is similar to shooting on film, with each track composed from captured performance. Using analog gear to create this sound is no easy task, but when achieved, nothing sounds comparable.

The album starts off with arabic sounding bells from the vintage Roland Super JX, then the chorus drops the mission statement:

“Soundboy run better put on ya sneakers, when you play this sound it fi blow out ya speakers, kill all dem woofers, kill all dem tweeters, me no stress me just smoke on da reefer yeah, pushing that dope like a dealer, I got the sound that fi wake up the sleeper.”

The voice then changes when the verse comes in, and the listener’s face is usually 100% mashed at this point. From there it’s non-stop bass designed to keep you engaged like a dog hearing a new sound for the first time, head tilted and all. It’s THE NEW SOUND, with just enough vocals to keep you locked in, but not too many vocals, as this album is really all about the sounds.

If you’re looking to hear the next level in bass music, this is for you. If you’re a DJ ready to soundclash, this record will shut the whole thing down.
