[Comp] DJ QUIK - "Quik's Groove"

DJ Quik is one of the true producer legends of hip-hop, and it's a shame how he often gets overlooked when discussing the real greats these days. Besides lacing loads of classic records for other artists, he also got an impressive solo career, carrying influential LP:s like "Under the Influence", "Safe + Sound", and "Rhythm-A-Lism". Each of Quik's albums from the '91 debut "Quik is the Street" to last year's "Book of David" have made it a point to include a "Quik's Groove"; a series of more experimental joints bearing influences from the LA jazz and funk scene. These are often composed by Quik with the help of his trusted in-house musicians like Warryn Campbell, Robert "Fonksta" Bacon, Charles "Chaz" Greene, G-One, Ron Townsend, and Sam Kininger. The nine installments in the series so far are all presented in one funky ass set which you find below, compiled and provided by Vision The Iron God. You'll see one of my regular producer's compilation with Quik on The Lost Tapes soon, but don't sleep on this genre-bending musical massacre .. .And if you're in the San Fransisco area on November 23, check out DJ Quick & Suga Free's performance. Major thanks to Vision for his work and contribution!

  1. Thanks! Didn't have Quik's Groove 8.

    But now something confuses me: If I'm not mistaken #8 one is off the 2002 Best Of Album, so it should really be #7 because it came out before the Quikstrumental (aka Quik's Groove 7) off the Trauma album which should be #8...
