My Field Trip To Planet 9




Justin Warfield- My Field Trip To Planet 9

"Ellis Dee" MP3
"Dip Dip Diving" MP3
"K Sera Sera" MP3


Justin Warfield's early '90's album "My Field Trip To Planet 9" was one of the cassette tapes that never, ever left the tape deck in my car when I was in High School. The beats are so great on this album with touches of psychedlic rock and jazz. I knew all of the words to some of the songs but most likely didn't have a clue what they meant. Also there is one song with about 20 shout outs at the end of "dip dip diving" and my friends and I could recite all of the names in order at any time. It is too bad Justin Warfield seems to have dropped off the face of the earth because I haven't seen or heard anything about him in years. I gave you 3 tracks from this album because it is a tough one to find.

Los Angeles native Justin Warfield was still in his teens when he contributed three tracks to a 1991 compilation produced by Quincy Jones' son. He was barely 20 when My Field Trip to Planet 9 was released, and that record's promise, combined with his youth, led many to expect great things of the psychedelicized rapper. What should have been expected of his youth was some malleability and capriciousness; all his next record of Sgt. Pepper-influenced psychedelic rock shares with the debut is its reflexive title.
Produced by Prince Paul, My Field Trip to Planet 9 is a joyously atypical hip-hop record: Warfield's trippy guitar loops take the place of shopworn soul/funk samples, he goes by his given name rather than a contrived street handle and his view of pop culture is as expanded as his chemically assisted mind — Ravi Shankar and Joanie Loves Chachi both get namechecked. Warfield's plain-spoken raps seek to lull rather than rouse, and his delivery sounds like a mid-afternoon stoner monologue that just happens to rhyme.
Dispensing with hip-hop, Warfield turned to rock with the four-piece Supernaut. Much of the material is as original as Lenny Kravitz — which is to say not very — and the lyrics are not much more intelligible. "Serpent's tongue just grazed the fire/Demon-shed tongue drip cornshoe dire" goes "Moontower." Warfield is a charmer, though, and both records' shortcomings can be written off as the miscalculations of an overenthusiastic rookie.
Warfield has since moved back into rap and on into electronica, working on tracks with Bomb the Bass, Cornershop, Placebo and the Chemical Brothers.

Did you ever hear any of his punk rock type band Tape? I managed to get a couple of MP3s off the website before it disapeared into porno linking. His songwriteing was matureing to. Lets hope he's just taking a break and will be back on the radar soon. I think I might just put field trip to planet 9 on right now actully.

tape is done but I think the guitarist plays with She wants revenge at their shows. It died because the drummer wouldn't do dance type beats.

You should check out One inch punch - justin's band in between supernaut and tape.
