No Sleep Recordings and production master Nick Wiz, return with the long-awaited fifth installment of the “Cellar Sounds” 2CD series. Again, this is a treasure chest of vintage mid-90s underground Hip-Hop; the majority of which has never been heard before! Again, Nick showcases why his studio “The Cellar” was a key location in the NJ/NYC underground scene. His unique fusion of filters, horns, smacking SP-1200 drums and dense bass-lines gave his work a signature sound and it is also why Wiz was the producer of choice for the legendary series of Echo Unlimited / Lyricist Lounge cassettes, “Underground Airplay”. Still, Nick Wiz was most noted for his contributions to the Cella Dwellas “Realms and Reality” debut, as well as albums from the likes of Rakim, Mad Skillz, Chubb Rock and others. In between putting in work on these major label releases, he still dedicated himself to the cause of the unsigned artist.
Prolific to say the least, Wiz constantly ran sessions and developed several groups at a time. Artists like Shabaam Sahdeeq, Ran Reed, Chino XL, and Pudgee were mainstays in the underground radio dominated Nineties scene, while others like Hardwe’re and Gauge the Mental Murderah are best remembered from sought after “random rap” 12”s. While a lot of the material produced and recorded by Wiz did find its way to release, countless other tracks remained stored away on DAT tapes for over a decade.
Found on this incredible 2CD set are selections from the highly collectable “Underground Airplay” tapes, unreleased remixes, and obscure demos from lyricists throughout NYC and New Jersey. Forty-four tracks in total, spanning from Wiz’s early recording in 1992 to his zenith in 1998, this is a true time-capsule of the Nineties underground Hip-Hop sound; presented in perfect digital quality! Part nine of the “For Those That Slept” series.

I'm listening to this now and it's very dope.

I can't believe this guy had so much unreleased music. I was surprised when he released Vol. 4 but another one?

I'm not complaining though!

UGHH had Volume 4 CDs in stock a couple weeks after it dropped. I'm assuming they'll have some of Volume 5. If so ill just wait till they do. Ill hit up Quest and/or Icon and see the deal.

Yo Weather all im seeing are the instrumentals on Spotify. You see vocal versions?

Gonna give it another day to see if UGHH gets it and then ill pull the trigger. Worst case ill scoop up another copy if/when UGHH gets it for a rainy resell day.

I only got Volumes 2 and 4. Volumes 1-3 going for like $100. He should just repress them already.

I wonder what's the story behind that early version of Wordsmith... why only 1 verse (did Chino only have 1 verse back then?), why didn't it eventually make Poison Pen?

No Sleep isn't planning on re-releasing Volumes 1-3 which is pretty disappointing. They could make a nice amount of bread and a big fuck you to the resellers if they went that route.

The Ran Reed occasionally pops up for $40-$50 but Cellar Sounds stay in the hundred dollar range. Same with the Godfather Don one.

I don't think FifthElement has worse shipping rates than Ughh. Shipping was around 13 bucks for 3 CDs recently over there - which may even be cheaper.

Yeah, Vol.5 seems nicer than Vol.4 which was just a little bit weaker..

Other than that - although Cellar Sounds are super nice, I wish there were also some Nick Wiz produced artist projects from 90s similar to that one Ran Reed on No Sleep - Emskee, Shabaam, Pudgee and other usual suspects.
And what happened to everything not Nick Wiz related as far as No Sleep Recordings go??

Co-sign i wish they released stuff more frequently. There's probably another few albums they could drop. This is first release since Volume 4 which was couple years ago.

Spotify slacks hard on producer credits. Because these albums are technically by "various artists", they only categorize it by that and fail to list it on Nick Wiz's page, even under the "appears on" section.
It would be so doap if they had a "production" section like discogs. As per always, the music world generally does not give enough shine to producers

If you search for "cellar sounds" and go to the albums section you can find them there.
