Welcome to Underground Fossils, brought to you by Dimxsk and Trylemma. The purpose of this blog is to assist in the sharing of out of print and/or rare examples of the hip hop genre. We believe that every release we post is an integral part of history and deserves to be heard by older fans as well as new seekers. We do not post or encourage the posting of anything that can be bought easily from the artist, those can be found elsewhere. Furthermore, if any artist who is featured here wishes not to share their material we will remove it immediately. Most of the rips found here were made by other people, but some of them were made by us. We are not sound engineers, so while the quality will usually be 320 kbps, they will be recorded from the source material as is. Please message us if you are an engineer and want wav files to master. Enjoy!

PS: We also want to thank all of the women and men before us who shared music in this way. Your work made our collections what they are today, and we are grateful.

Kayaquatic (Kay the Aquanaut) - Day Dreamin' (1999)

Today's another Friday at Underground Fossils which means we're sharing a rarity with y'all, and it doesn't get much more obscure than this. In honor of the recent release of Kay the Aquanaut & Maki's psychedelic rap album Earth Station 7, we decided to share with you guys this particular example of Kay's roots as a rapper.

Day Dreamin' is his 1999 album under the name Kayaquatic, and to be honest I haven't even heard all of it yet. We had prepared a post of an album allegedly by Kay the Aquanaut called Day Dreamin', but at the 11th hour Trylemma got in touch with Chaps looking for the official cover art. Chaps informed us that the rip floating around is an unofficial version with a fan made cover (see below). It's incomplete, this is the original version, ripped for us by Chaps himself late last evening. Shouts out to the man, he's awesome.

Anyway, this album was produced by DJ Ring Worm, aka DevoTea, put out on WermWhole productions (which probably isn't a label at all) and is a must have for fans of Side Road, Fake Four, Factor, Chaps, good hip-hop in general. Enjoy!


Note: The artwork featured above is the unofficial cover, made by whoever compiled the version floating around the net. It's actually pretty cool so I figured why not post it. If you made it I'm guessing you did your best to recreate the album off Limewire or whatever, so now you have the full version.
