Kon and Amir are the kind of legendary record collectors that get spoken about in hushed tones by producers and the musical cognoscenti. Their On Track mixtapes are infamous for exposing OG hip-hop samples and ruffling the feathers of many producers who wanted to keep that information under wraps. You could listen to just one side of those mixtapes and you would be witness to original samples that have been used by the biggest in the hip-hop industry. Dr. Dre, Pete Rock, Primo, Rza, Eric B; you name a classic hip-hop tune and they have the original record it got sampled off of. Ironically, most of the records that many find rare to this day were old heirlooms courtesy of a family steeped in black and latin music. Ebay digging was never part of their game.
Live they are something to behold as they seamlessly blend funk, jazz, soul, hip-hop, latin, and the newest craze on the scene, modern soul and boogie into a fine musical mash. Don’t sleep on this roller coaster ride of funky sounds courtesy of RBMA Radio
