BADBADNOTGOOD / Majestics Key To Love (Is Understanding) Beautiful deep soul double a.side. The original track is amazing in it's own right, but having that slick Badbadnotgood cover on here too makes it essential! Toronto’s BadBadNotGood, with Jonah Yano on vocals, covering 'Key To Love (Is Understanding)', originally recorded in 1982 by Milwaukee’s funk / soul pioneers Majestics. “As lovers of old soul, funk and rare recordings, ‘Key to Love’ has always been a song that has had an impact on our heart and ears,” BadBadNotGood said. “We hope our version relays how special this song is and gives it some new listeners and a second life [...] It’s an incredibly beautiful song that deserves to be heard, and we hope to play a small part in that.” The original Majestics single is highly sought-after by diggers and DJs worldwide not only for 'Key To Love (Is Understanding)' but also for Class A, which is considered the first-ever rap recording to come out of Milwaukee.

Digable Planets Reachin (A New Refutation of Time and Space) - 25th Anniversary Edition At a time when hip-hop was determined to snap your neck, a young, hip trio from Brooklyn (by way of Seattle, Philly, and Brazil) conspired on an uncommonly smooth new sound and freaky way of speak, a titanically chill expression of Black bohemia loaded with jazz idiom and a subversive Marxist bent—and pushed it worldwide via an undeniable crossover hit. Digable Planets’ 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), unexpected to all involved, produced a massive radio hit in “Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)”, which won the 1994 Grammy for Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group.
