Rewind & Reminisce #1: We’ll begin with some DOOM

We, BamaLoveSoul, advocates for quality nu soul, hip hop, and more, are doing what we can to dig for fresh yet hidden tracks in order to unearth them for you, our faithful followers. Usually, our posts cover new material or twists on old classics. However, to not neglect where the new music we appreciate has grown from, we present you with our latest feature series—Rewind & Reminisce.

Since releasing his heralded debut solo album Operation: Doomsday, Daniel Dumile, most notably known as MF DOOM, has continually provided us with listening material encompassing his distinct delivery, his ear-pleasing production, and often also the sounds of other extraordinary producers, such as Danger Mouse and Madlib. Let’s rewind to 1999 and reminisce over one of DOOM’s debut LP’s incredible tracks, aptly titled “Doomsday.”

DOOM truly shines through “Doomsday.” The cut contains a classy R&B sample from Sade’s classic hit “Kiss of Life,” and intertwines it flawlessly with a raw hip-hop sample from Boogie Down Production’s “Poetry.” Impressive selections indeed. In addition, a consistent drum kick and a soothing piano melody round the sound out perfectly.

Listen (below) to “Doomsday” and check the video of DOOM, wearing his infamous mask, performing the track at South By Southwest (SXSW) back in 2005.

Also, look out for an awesome reissue of Operation: Doomsday coming this spring.
