RELEASE NOTES

With 1995's Safe+Sound, his third album, DJ Quik scaled new levels of musical magnificence with his signature new age P-Funk/laconic G-Funk.

A quintessential, sun-scorched LA album, this is pretty much essential. Less reliant on samples and more focused on live instruments, Safe+Sound elevated Quik from producer to fully-fledged composer. This is an album of full-blown masterpieces. Rich soundscapes and masterfully arranged orchestrations with dense layers of sounds, intricate rhythms, and well-balanced songwriting.

This 2022 Be With double LP re-issue has been mastered for vinyl by Simon Francis, cut by Pete Norman and pressed at Record Industry. Unusual for the time, Safe+Sound was originally pressed as a double, so all that was missing was the CD's hidden bonus track "Tanqueray", so we've fixed that.

The original vinyl release never got a picture sleeve, so we've recreated the original's promo-style silver-sticker and plain black jacket. A subtle cover for a wonderfully unsubtle record.
