Radio: Kankick Special

KANKICK / KANZULU (The Farm, Outer Xistence, Warped Mind, Oxnard California)

I've been wanting to do this show for like a year now.

This was the first special show concentrating only on one artist.
I wanted to make it perfect and have Kankick interviewed, but I never got in touch with the man.
So I don't have much background information to offer. Pretty much all I know is that he is from Oxnard, started making beats together with Madlib, and has been making music for over 20 years now. He was a member in Lootpack but then formed another crew called The Farm, but works mostly solo.

Gladly I found a really good interview and propably the only one ever made of him, that you'll find lower on the page.

Kankick has been a great inspiration to me throughout the years. I guess it's because of his raw, laid-back and soulful beats but also his way not to follow trends. While other Ox-cats might've moved on to synthesizer sounds, Dilla-offbeats or whatever, Kankick has always kept his own original style. And another thing that I love about his beats is how they remain so vivid. It's never just a loop but a well-constructed song with lots of little things happening in the background, and still raw. Kankick's music kinda taught me more to listen to instrumental hiphop, or beats.

Alright, here's the show (in discographical order):

1. Kankick - To The Ghetto (Style)

The interview by Elemental Magazine (2001) at (straight link to the interview).

A review of the two tapes by The Farm in Subculture Magazine (1996) in the following post, "Paper Archives 002". I have never seen them mentioned anywhere else.

I really wished to give you an interview and proper information and biography. Maybe we'll get that later.
