q ball & curt cazal

another couple, who doesn't need a big introduction! q ball and curt cazal, who was dj and producer of j.v.c. force (justified by virtue of creativity for all reasons concerning entertainment) from around '87-'92.


both together started their journey in '94 on vzq records with a 12" called "makin moves" to follow up one year later on the same label with "my kinda moves". in '96 they released a 12" called "tremendous" and one year later "unstoppable" both with mama mystique. their white label with "rock the spot" and "live & let die" should be from '98. the last two joints i want to show you are a collaboration with rae & christian from the uk and the track "boon dox" which was featured on a mystic brew sampler.

qnc are presently working with names like jay z, m.o.p., sauce money, boot camp clik, keith murray, mr. cheeks, big daddy kane, craig g, krumbsnatcha, afu ra, big jaz, etc....

update:

i asked aj rok about q-ball:

"...Q Ball was a cat that went to high school with Curt Cazal and B Luv (Im a little older) and started hanging with Curt more as JVC FORCE was in the process of breaking up. Q Ball may even be on a track on the 3rd album that was goin to come out on Big Beat and was never released, Im not quite sure but NO Q BALL WAS NEVER A MEMBER OF JVC FORCE.
Curt and him kinda did their thing after JVC FORCE broke up!"




enjoy!

akutt

Jackpot! This is some dopeness right here. I've never been able to get my hands on the Makin' Moves record so good lookin' out on that.

Dope A...I have always enjoyed JVC Force and was pleased that Curt still records after they broke up,these are all dope and I own My Kinda Moves and the Repertoire joints and I just noticed that they are worth some deniros.

Good stuff "you know it's curt cazal, nothing better". I discover them on "whole repertoire" back in 98. Luved the track. Keep it movin Crate of AG!

@ serch4beatz

Yeah, It was a limited release and I saw on a Japanese site that was selling it for close to US $40

Thanx so much for this post! Small question. For My Kinda Moves you listed four tracks:

Q BALL & CURT CAZAL 12" '95

1. INTRO
2. MY KINDA MOVES
3. ALL THE FLAVA
4. WAR OUT THERE (FEAT. EXMENN)

Tracks 1 & 3 are missing. I would really like to hear Track 3 (All The Flava) if it would not be too much trouble. I only have a 20 sec sample of it. Thanks.

Thanks for this post, I've rated Curt's work for a long time. Is there any chance you can upload Mama Mystique's Unstoppable please? I heard it on the radio in London back in the day but could never find the 12" over here in the UK... Thanks again!
