|KAN KICK (OXNARD, CA)
BORED IN THE CRATES HOMAGE ('06)
LIVE ON ANDREW MEZA'S BTS RADIO
If you know about Madlib and Oh No, you should know about Kan Kick. Based in Oxnard, CA, a sleepy beach town 40 miles north of Los Angeles, Kan Kick is a fiercely independent veteran of the west coast underground, and a legend for California hip-hop.
Kan Kick production is hazy, mellow, dusty, crunchy and filled with soul. His 2001 release, From Artz Unknown was his first official solo introduction and featured some of the west coast’s most dedicated chairmen such as; Declaime, The Visionaries, Krondon, Phil Da Agony, Planet Asia and Wildchild of The Lootpack, which he was also an early member of.
Kan Kick lives for the underground and has built a large cult following with his many and hard-to-find releases. Credited by many as one of the most under-appreciated and underrated, he’ll remain as one of the most respected.
One of BTS’ closet affiliates and most frequent guest, here’s another Kan Kick guest mix from the archive dating back to 2006. A very small showcase of Kan Kick’s vinyl collection, this is for the rare groove, soul and jazz heads.
Kan Kick’s Poo-Bah Records release, Seeing Spirits is out now on limited 10’’ vinyl and can be purchased directly at: www.poobah.com/kankick-seeing-spirits
Original Air Date: September 6, 2006
