1. The Evolution Control Committee
the whipped cream mixes
Some smart asses in Columbus, Ohio, had the stroke of genius to throw Chuck D's vocals over tracks from jazz kingpin Herb Alpert's legendary Whipped Cream LP, and wound up with the coolest seven-inch release of the year. "By the Time I Get to Arizona" is especially poignant for politically conscious Phoenicians ("With a dumb cracker running things under his thumb" strike a chord?). Hip-hop has merged with many music styles in the past decade, but never quite like this. Incredibly, the vocals are almost perfectly matched to the beats. These tasty mixes are an acquired taste, but well worth the effort. You have to hear them to believe. (Eerie Materials, P.O. Box 420816, San Francisco, CA 94142)
