Today's reviewed 12" is a great example of what I'd call an essential record... and I'm proud to say that it's a french initiative!

T-Love "Definition of a yee yee / Butcher's hook/ Foolish pride"

This is the first project put out by french Brawl label.
And what a debut... they bring you 3 unreleased tracks of the talented female emcee T-Love!

The A-side joint you need to hear is "Definition of a yee yee".
Recorded in '95, this track has that typical mid 90's indy hip hop sound that will keep your head noddin'! Beat is produced by Muddfoot (of the Whooliganz) who is now known as The Alchemist. Another song on this side is "Butcher's hook". This song as well as the one on the B-side was recorded when T-Love used to live in London in 2000 and was produced by the Herbaliser.

But the true jewel is on the B-side!
T-Love is singing and rapping over a beautiful beat... fortunately the instrumental is featured on it. It's the perfect tune to put in a jazzy hip hop mix. Have a listen to SBR of June 7th, 2007 to check it!

Brawl is a young structure so you should cop this 12" if you wanna hear a complete T-Love album with previously unreleased material from 1988 to 2000: "Long Way Up - The Basement Tapes" (scheduled on Fall/Winter 2007)
