Music can send you down a trip on memory lane, it’ll make you remember a loved one or a fun time in your life or maybe even that one night with that special someone… you know what i’m talking about. We at 1833 are no different and want to celebrate the past with our weekly segment THROWBACK THURSDAY’S; check below to see what era our contributors are stuck in this week and come back every thursday to find out what songs you forgot you missed.
Postal Service before they formalized the band. This song still makes me warm/sad.
“Block “’em, block ’em out. They steady screaming in my ear, how could I block ’em out?”
I chose “Isolation” for my first TBT for a few reasons. I love the track and it’s a song that made me want to blog. My son Noah Sims produced it and at his first professional session at Classick Studios, two artists that recorded on his beats were Roosevelt The Titan and Carl. “Isolation” was made at a later session and showed a lot of progress. It was fun to promote and I loved when Roosevelt performed it live. This is Carl before Hurt Everybody, and Rose & Noah still very new to the game. It’s great to see these three artists continue to rise. Shout out Roosevelt for reposting the track exclusively for Alexy’s feature. #BlockEmOut #Kronos
The video for “My Band” by “Eminems group” D12 is pretty nostalgic these days with Eminem introducing the late Proof before his verse and Bizarre mocking “In Da Club” and mentioning “Lose Yourself” in his verse; those two songs alone are a pretty good summary of 2004. Eminem always said he wanted his wacky music videos to be a kind of time capsule of what was going on when he made the song and that’s exactly why when I watch this I remember everything in pop culture that happened in 2004, long live Shady Records and D12.
I think Pretty Ricky is one of the best artists of the 00’s. The 00’s get so slept on but I’m all about them bat mitzvah rap’s.
