"A street savvy Al Green" UNLEASHED MAGAZINE
A mystery to most, Darondo records are high on the wants-lists of many collectors. He is spoken about in hushed-tones by other Bay Area musicians. Back in the day he was seen cruising around town in a white Rolls Royce (with a "Darondo" license plate). He opened-up for James Brown and lived a colorful lifestyle hanging with folks like the notorious Fillmore Slim. Take a listen to these tracks, released for the first time together on an album, and you may agree that he could have been the next Al Green or Sly Stone. But about 25 years ago Darondo disappeared. Releasing three singles in the early 1970s (as Darondo, Darondo Pulliam, or the miss-spelled Dorando) he mixed low-rider soul with blues and r'n'b. He delivered in a variety of styles from the socially-charged "Let My People Go" to the sexually-driven funk of "Legs". All three singles were recorded in the San Francisco Bay Area, and both sides of each of the singles are fantastic productions."You can hear a little bit of everything," says Darondo about his music style. "There's a little jazz and a little soul. They say if you Black you supposed to have soul. I got Latin flavor in me so there's some Latin in it. Definitely got the Blues in it. I sound kinda' country but I grew up in the Bay Area," he adds.But after the release of his three 45s Darondo stopped recording. “It was mostly me, just having a good time with a real good hobby,” he says. “It wasn’t about money but about having fun. Something I just liked to do. Maybe your dream is to be a James Brown or Frank Sinatra but those were just mostly dreams to me.” Outside of the music business Darondo was living life to the full, and it eventually caught up with him. “Folks would say ‘Daron got that dough…Daron Do…that’s how I got the name. I used to get my suits tailor made, one of a kind, like my rings. A player can’t have the same ring as someone else. Got my rings specially made with diamonds and stones. But in order to get yourself together you had to get away from all the fastness. I was driving around in a Rolls Royce, I was a fast young man," adds Darondo. Darondo now lives in Northern California with his wife and family and is delighted to hear his music is getting a second wind courtesy of DJs and collectors like the UK-based Gilles Peterson who recently picked "Didn't I" for his "Digs America" compilation. The six tracks from the three original singles are featured here, along with three previously unreleased songs that were recently discovered on a demo reel. The demo reel was sitting in a box of VHS copies of his cable TV shows which we had requested to use for images in the CD booklet. Recorded in the early 1970s, tracks from the demo reel were taken into a San Francisco studio in the summer of 2005 for enhancement. Darondo over-dubbed missing background vocals and guitar parts alongside up and coming San Francisco soul man Bing Ji Ling. Darondo warmed up quickly, he hasn’t lost his touch. After the session Darondo confessed that he was inspired to start playing again…so there is hope for a full-blown Darondo revival!......article taken from UbiquityRecords.com

Yo! What's it is good people? I can't believe it's mid-March already Basketball is getting intense with the NCAA tournament about to jump off, the NBA is tightening up getting closer to the playoffs ( GO LAKERS!) this is one of the best times of year for me . Today I'm just going to lay down some music that I have been bumping in the ride lately, is it me or does music these days seem disposable. I mean what was a hit 6 months ago you don't even hear it anymore, people are trying to make a hit but could care less about a classic ( I'll get into that in another post ). Anyway this post is dedicated to great music that's all that's it, also go check out my man Scholar over at Souled On Music for even more dope music to add to your music selection. If your still wanting more hit up The Two Team for some dope mixes of classic funk for that ass. Well that's it for me today I'm going to grab me a Splash Of Circus Peanuts and politic for the rest of the day.
Original Sin - Marathon Flow Spitter - This joint right here reminds of being in a cypher and dude just took over a zoned out an flowed until the cops or somebody came an broke it up. This shit right here is fiyah!!
Stevie Wonder - All I Do - This is warm weather music riding with you ol' lady windows down with a glass of something tasty on the rocks, just riding no destination just riding enjoying one another. It's gets no better that this song right here.
Black Star - Brown Skin Lady - Two of my favorite MC's come together to pay homage to the soul sista over a dope sample. I salute you brown skin lady!!!
Erykah Badu - Honey (JBlow RMX) - This is a remix a complete overhaul of what the original sounded like, shout out JBlow for this remix love the drums on this you'll wake the neighbors up bumping this shit.
Coultrain - Screw - Haven't taken this dudes CD out of the deck since I got that joint. In a era of all this radio pop bullshit is good to hear somebody really put their heart and soul into the music. If you can get this CD I'll never stear you wrong.
Wale Oyejide - Riot And Revolt - This is that revolution music right here, these drums on this song just bang out of the speakers you can't help but rock your head to the chant of Riot and Revolt.
Baby Huey - Mighty Mighty - It's a shame this man died so young his music was full of soul and definitley fueled with the funk. Signed to Curtis Mayfield's label this is the only album Baby Huey put out and this song takes you to a small club with big booty waitresses, thunderbird and the smell of soul food coming out the back room. Classic album and song.
Lou Donaldson - It's Your Thing - You should know the sample in the beginnig of the funky version a classic tune if not Punks! You Get Beat Down haa!
Janelle Monae - Violet Stars Happy Hunting! - I really digging this chic not only is she fly as hell, she is very creative her album The Audition is one that you guys need to add to the collection. Did I say she was hot already??
Casual - Later On ( Casual's low down remix ) - Casual is one of my favorite west coast mc's and this joint is just cruising down the strip with the gangsta lean hollering at BATCHES!!!
One Of My Favorite Videos - R.I.P Biggie!!
