stezo


back in '88, epmd had an interesting background dancer on their strictly business tour...steve williams from connecticut. one year later, the same kid had his first record released. under the name stezo, he put out the classic "crazy noise" album with productions by the almighty paul c. anyway..since i am focused on mid 90ies records on this site, i wanted to present you three records he put out after a break of about four years. in the same manner as three times dope did, stezo appeared on four independent records in the mid 90ies as well after his early career.


STEZO 12" '94

1. BOP YA HEADZ
2. SHINING STAR

in '95/'96 stezo released an ep with "time to blow ya mind", "tension off the chest", "figure it out" & "where's the funk at". i don't have that one though.


STEZO 12" '96 (check out the typos on each side)

1. TIME TA BLOW YA MIND
2. TENSION OFF THE CHEST (FEAT. K-SOLO)



STEZO 12" '97

1. MR. S
2. FUNKY FOR YA


while the first two records were produced by chris lowe, the last one has productions by a guy called k-b.

after these records, stones throw released older stezo material- a 12" with tracks from '89-90 and a remix by koushik. also i think he had an appearance on the "i gotcha" album of his cousin dooley o.

hit me up should you have a spare copy of the ep or audio of "figure it out" and "where's the funk at".

oh...and..."bop ya headz", that's my joint!




enjoy!

In the words of the BDK...ohhhhhh shit...where have you been hiding these jewels Akutt?.

These are not easy to find at all and I have always enjoyed Stezo's flow and records, I have been searching for Bop Ya Headz for the longest and I only got Time To Blow Ya Mine last year.

I can't thank you enough for these and I know cat named Ralven that will be drooling about these.

:D

Since I'm in a sharing mood, I figured I would throw the heads a bone here and up the "Bonus" track off the Bop Ya Headz "12

I hope you don't mind...

Yo Al,

what the hell...first Annexx Clique with this terrific track In Baltimore by K-Mack and what I'm been searching for years...

Jaz is right, the ground around my table is flooded. ;)

Only know Time To Blow Your Mind from an old mixtape and always wanted to hear the B-Side. Didnt know that there exist two more records of the nineties. All tracks are dope as hell...Time To Blow... is still my favorite but that Bop Ya Headz track is coming close.

Damn, can't say how much I thank you. Satisfied for the this year and still drooling.^^

THANKS bro!!!

peez, Ralven
