Octagon: The Instrumentalyst Octagon Beats is what the title implies, the instrumental version the music - beats, samples, and scratches of the album Dr.
The background music is by Dan the Automator also from Handsome Boy Modeling School with scratching by DJ Qbert so the wealth of talent on the original recording make it essential. Kool Keith's lyrics and rhyme skills are something to behold. It may well be the strangest of it's kind. So since this instrumental album is basically everything except Kool Keith, there is that element missing. However, this is one case where the music and vocals complement each other.
I first heard the album in it's original format with Kool Keith intact and the inventive use of beats and background music was as unique as he was. So when I found that there was also an instrumental version I had to have that as well. Highlights are plenty, but a few personal favorites are "No Awareness", "Blue Flowers", "Technical Difficulties", "A visit to the gynecologist" although the original is a guilty pleasure , "Girl let me touch you", and of course "Moosebumps" which is a longer version of the original album's "I got to tell you" This one especially works for me because it's a track that I always wanted to last longer with just the music.
Bottom line if you liked the original's music or are just a fan of creative trip or hip hop beats, then this won't disappoint. One of the best of it's kind. Octagon only made one album.

I wouldn't sit down and give it my undivided attention because, quite frankly, it could get a bit boring. But if you need some beats to freestyle to, if you're happy to chat but need something a bit less depressing than Unkle, something that can remind you of the new dawn of Hip Hop fusion - look no further.
And can I add, the gentlemen who did use these beats as late night backing tracks whilst brooding over their beer - they're well respected artists now. Who knows where this could lead you to. When I originally heard the original Dr. Octagon album, I thought Keith's raps were cool and weird, but I was really moved by the tripped out, spacey funk that was his music.
The whole time I was listening to the CD, I was thinking: "they should release an instrumental version of this. People who don't even like hip-hop might get into this. I must not have been TOO off the mark then. I won't elaborate on this review like I do all of my other reviews but let me say something about this work of art. Its the best instrumental album you can get. This should be part of any music collection. Participer au concours et enregistrer votre nom dans la liste de meilleurs joueurs!
