Wow you were very informative.I have a question is there any way i could get a hold of an instrumental of the Diggable version?I can’t find it anywhere i’m assuming it was recorded live?I love the Lonnie Liston Smith version.It had a strong Curtis Mayfeild vibe.The Cujo reminds me of Bjork or Dido.I like the beginning of the Amon Tobin I would enjoy looping that first part if i had what i needed but it got to techno for my laid back heart.There was a rap group called crucial conflict who also used the bass line i didn’t like there version though because it was to aggressive and ignorant for me to appreciate( basically to commercial). the planets are great hip hop they are smart, melodic,Great flow’s,abstract ,musically inclined and poetic like any great group of MC’s.Thank you i would appreciate any information on my question. keep the jazz alive!!!PEACE ONE LOVE!!

Im sorry i feel stupid im of the youtube generation!!! I thought Cujo and amon tobin were two different people!!!I wasnt paying attention i love the beginning of the Cujo(amon tobin)but when the techno comes i fall off he seem like a great musician i heard he sampled wind up toy sounds and used them in some of his songs!!!How cool keep me posted im so interested in expanding my horizon’s by dipping into the jazz genre as a young hip hop enthusiast!!That bass line touched me i followed my heart to your website i hope you can help.
