lyrics

GROOVE RIDE SMOOTHER
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape

It may behoove you to move with rhythm and found grooves
in the night if it’s hype or mellow the sound soothes
speakers reverberate when the plate moves
under the stylus the style is simple and straight smooth
and the crinkle of breaks prove that the
static could just add the magic that synths lose
and just like the hatchet that splits crews
the divide between live and electro I find grew
the vinyl or the records, the records I dig through
with reckless abandon I jam in a big stew (mixed!)
resulting in tracks to spit to
whether versed or just top of the head to get you, my
mission is the compositions I let flew
whether tracks to relax or rhythms to sweat to
back to the axe and grindstone to cool
hack on the stacks of vinyl I’m gonna do

so can I get a handclap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
can I get a ‘clap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?

It never died, the vibe survives where I reside
outside the lies applied to blindside
where the Cyclops can co-op your Hip Hop
and wrap a slipknot ‘round your neck like a sick cop
as you stand there, frozen like a mannequin
in the land of the blind it seems the one-eyed man is king
but despite that, you fight that sight back
and have a good time, for tomorrow you’ll be right back
in reality dealin with your tragedies
but tonight spark a light down a brew and think casually
get on the floor and get bizarre epileptic
but don’t electric slide but get by on some next shit
with a b-boy/b-girl effervescence
back to the essence, magnificence manifestin
I’m missin this as a presence in prisons of pretense it’s
pretend things are right, just tonight in consensus.

so can I get a handclap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
can I get a clap from the back?
(groove ride smooth) fingersnap to the track
(groove ride smooth) front to back ‘cuz it’s packed ‘cuz the
(groove ride smooth) what you know about that?
