"Inspired by the meditative experience of tracing the sideshow skid marks in a mall parking lot on my vintage 86 Mongoose." Weezmatic
Led by punchy 808s and electro claps, 86 Mongoose is a crafty upgrade to the minimal waves of early hip-hop production, with playful explorations through modern chops and lively arrangements. Weezy AKA Squreweezy AKA Squareone is no novice on the SP 404 or MPC and, his group, legendary South Bay area turntablists, The Bangerz, have been mainstays in the scene for decades– evidenced by apt track titles like “3AM in Milpitas.”
86 Mongoose was created between January and March of 2021 and is a personal audio art project inspired by Weezy tracing sideshow skid marks in a nearby parking lot with his vintage Mongoose BMX while listening to Kanye’s album Yeezus. Cuts like “Rockets” and “4th Chakra” are anchored by knocking drums, swirling samples, and at times sparse moments that swell into fantastical bombast (see: “Square One”). According to Weezy himself, “The 20 minute audio journey is meant to capture the energy, freedom, gratitude, and centeredness felt during these meditative bike rides.”

When I say this record reached out from my tiny iPhone and grabbed my medulla oblangata, squeezed it until hyper-lysergic goo spritzed across the room, I am engaging in hyperbole. When I say this album is the best beat tape I’ve heard in years, I am spitting facts. Love love love!! Jay Hodgson

11 out of 10. Shame on me for not hearing this sooner. "Noises..." is a masterpiece standing chin-out & chest-up w/ the best work by Shadow, Koala, R. Swift & Qbert. Crushing beats, turntable wizardry, genius samples? Triple-check. I'm left wanting more Otis Nugatory
