Favorite Album: @Ecnerwal23

I met Herb a few years ago and have had a chance to do some live shows with him since then as well as have some beers with him. He’s a great guy and I just had to know about his favorite album.

Name/Twitter Handle

Herb Lawrence – @Ecnerwal23

Favorite Album

A Tribe Called Quest – Midnight Marauders

First time you heard it

Had to be around the time the album was released because my sister, Komega absolutely loved Tribe back then (still does). I didn’t want to let my sister know that she was right about anything back then so I didn’t really like it until I went to college in 1998.

How often do you listen to it?

Every single day. There’s at least 1 song from that album that plays on my shuffled music daily

Why is this your favorite album?

As a guy that spent most of his adult life editing audio, I have an appreciation of how hard Q-Tip worked on those loops to produce that album. He did this without a computer program too. Songs just flow with Phife Dawg, Tip and Ali Shaheed Muhammad mastering their craft.

Which track would be your walk up music?

Electric Relaxation. It is just the smoothest groove and would get the crowd slowing bopping their heads.
