The black Danny ocean

"The Black Danny Ocean" is the name of this blog, created by me (Maurice Daniel) under the pseudonym: The Black Danny Ocean. It's pretty much just a collection of my opinions and thoughts on everything from music, to the culture of entertainment, politics, sneakers, high end beer, obnoxious trends, and rare yet exquisitely dope finds, all while I travel, take pictures, and create beats along the way. FWM. There's so much more to come...

Sample worthy

As a producer who values the art of sampling, nothing is more important than the source from which you draw inspiration. As a collector, nothing matters more than the timelessness of a record, and that you can grow to it while living through your everyday existence. In comes Deodato. I was introduced to Deodato by suggestion of one of my favorite Atlanta producers, and while I have yet to make my way through the entire Deodato catalog, much of what I've heard thus-far has made me a true believer. The moment that I saw this beautiful record I snatched it quickly, put it into my pile, and headed to the counter to purchase my new finds. While this album is far from a perfect listen from beginning to end, this is a very good add to my collection and a goldmine for any producers out there who are looking for sample magic. Click the link below to preview some of Deodato's music for yourself. Peace...
