I got put onto him somewhat recently, he's pretty ill with the beats. I'm listening to Spare Time right now. For a beat tape he put on the internet for free, a random collection of joints, its impressive. It's also 6 years old so I look forward to delving into his newer work.

I heard "How it should sound" is his best work, but I'm trying to go in order.

Any recommendations?

I haven't seen those videos of Damu in the park, but I'll definitely check them out.

In terms of his discography, I've heard most of it, and everything I've heard has been dope, so I'd recommend just doing his whole discography in order like you planned.

Also, check out these videos. They're awesome.

Oh also check out his group Y Society. I think they've only got one album but it's really good.

And I think he's producing on Grap Luva's new EP that's either about to come out or just came out.

Check this one out: playing beats live for 3 MCs and a crowd in front of Turntable Lab in the East Village NYC.

I've heard some people online speak negative about him not taking him seriously because of the sound of his name. He's got dope music & mainly takes his influence from 90's Pete Rock sound.

check out this Damu remix of a song by a duo called The Union that features Talib Kweli on vocals. i just found out but shit is fucking slamming..

TIME LEAK @ Soundcloud (http://soundcloud.com/redef/the-union-ft-talib-kweli-time)

Damu is really dope, "How it Should Sound" is crazy and he got lots of ill 7" singles and such. the only one I have is a 7" that features the songs "When the Winter Comes" and "Truly Get Yours" and i absolutely love those. i agree with his name though - he should change it to just DAMU

yeah, i been sayin that Damu is insane with it...

nicest out on the beats IMO and what's nuts about that is that he only uses the MPC 2000 ---that MPC is the one that doesn't even have an auto chop feature..

he's just insane with the loop diggin'.. very jazzy sound with a lot of great drums.. GREAT drums.. really want a compilation style LP from him...
