From acid-jazz groovers and jazz-funk movers to spaced-out cosmic explorations and beyond, the 4LP-set Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash opened the door to a heightened musical experience and features some of the most iconic and hard-to-find drum breaks, legendary samples, and a who's who of players and producers including: Bernard Purdie, Isaac Hayes, David Axelrod, the Lafayette Afro Rock Band, the Blackbyrds, Pharoah Sanders, and more.
Comprised of four distinct musical strains - Soul Diesel, Purple Funk, OG Kush, and Astral Travelin' – there is a trip for every mood. Each LP came in its own unique jacket, combining texture and visuals for a truly extrasensory experience. Featuring custom "prescription" labels, each record is designed to reflect the intended effects of the music. And now each of the four Jazz Dispensary: Cosmic Stash LPs are being offered individually. Just what the doctor ordered!
Soul Diesel is an invigorating, fast-acting and lively strain of high-energy tuneage. Named after its funky, potent diesel engine-like drive. Provides long-lasting, toe-tapping relief from the stress of everyday life. You might recognize: the drum break on opening track, "Fire Eater." This Rusty Bryant track was sampled by Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow for the legendary Brainfreeze record and again for Jurassic 5's "Swing Set." On side two, Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers do "Got Myself a Good Man" which contains the break from the Chemical Brothers' hit "Block Rockin' Beats."
