Koolest Kuts Vol. 1 - Mixed by Patski Love

I've always thought that Kool Keith was dope. I never quite understood why I bought his albums and continued to listen to them, but I would. UMCs, Dr. Octagon, Dr. Doom, Black Elvis, etc... You name it, I bought it and played it until the tape went pop. All the while not really understanding why I kept listening. Kind of like watching a David Lynch film. You don't really love it, but you continue to watch because you just kind of think you should. Not having listened to Kool Keith in over 10 years, I listened to this mix and realized that Kool Keith was just way ahead of his time. Sure, he always told us how ahead of his time he was, but it's a whole different thing to actually be proven correct. Listen to this collection of Keith classics and tell me Kool Keith didn't birth the whole abstract, minimalist, electronic style that is so popular today. Not only didn't he create the style during a time when it was a big no-no, but he did it better than anybody since. Listen and enjoy.
What has now become a tradition when Patski Love books his favorite artists to Oslo, comes another "Best Of" mix. This time long-time Juicy fave MC; Kool Keith of the legendary Ultramagnetic MC's (and then some).

On October 15th Keith and his often collaborator KutMasta Kurt will be performing with Chris Stallion, Patski, Joddski and Ross at Jaeger. In the meantime warm up with nearly 80 minuttes of Kool Keith's best songs and verses as himself, Ultra, Dr. Octagon, Rhythm X, Poppa Large, Dr. Dooom and more.

Love the blog. Been a daily visitor for many years. Kool Keith was In Ultramagnetic MC's not the UMC's. And UMC's is not a proper abbreviation of Ultramagnetic MC"s. Just thought I would point that out.

the U.M.C.'s were a hip-hop duo from Staten Island with members Haas G and Kool Kim

I know Kool Keith has something to say about this, anyone want to dig up a verse?
