“RAWS is an intimate party held in a small club in Tokyo, where underground beatheads unite. After a live performance by a jazz band which gets recorded, the beatmakers have an hour to chop up the freshly recorded sample, flip it, and make a beat right there on the spot.
RAWS-THREE is the third installment [...]
A little something to get you in the Christmas mood if you aren’t already. I got my Christmas list ready and I’m handing out copies. A Low Budget Christmas is a nice surprise in my email- Christmas started early. A low Budget Christmas is a nice twist on holiday tracks you may or may not know. Now [...]
Lately this is the only album that I can listen to straight through. Sammus is a super smart gamer girl that produces and raps. Is this a nerd’s dream that’s comes true or what?!? Either way I’m glad that Sammus is out there making good music. The thing that got me hooked wasn’t just listening to M’Other Brain, [...]
Nothing like a high energy video from J-Live to get your day going. Not much else to say, but play it again. After you get done watching the video, get down with the album, S.P.T.A. BIG thanks to J-Live for the heads up. Keep doing what you’re doing.
Sometimes I download tons of stuff and drop it on the iPod. Last weekend I did just that and loaded up some new stuff. I took a drive the other day and thumbed through some stuff and landed on Us Natives’ Used Vinyl Review. My drive got a little long and I played it again [...]
I’m going to give you my opinion on this dude Oddisee. I think we are witnessing the makings of a legend. I really can’t think of a project that he’s a part of that folks don’t love. Above all Oddisee is a down to earth cat. Odd Renditions Vol. 001 is another flavor of Oddisee, but still [...]
Checking my emails late at night like usual, and got one from the good folks at Cov Original Music. That first track, The Real, is a banger. After that I just kept it going. Before I knew it I had listened to the whole thing. HawdWerk keep doing what you’re doing brother. Check out HawdWerk at Blue [...]
You really have to respect a cat for being on the grind all the time. Futuristic is always at shows, preforming, promoting, networking, tweeting, emailing, and just giving it his all. I would see this cat out and about back to back weekends making things happen. Earlier this year Futuristic released the EP Stairways. The [...]
Magestik Legend doesn’t disappoint, and he brings the heat once again with To Be Continued… Chapter 1. I played To Be Continued from beginning to end, and had the volume cranked up. I thought Magestik Legend was dope when he dropped FREE, but he kills it on this one. Bout Freedom (produced by Astronote) gets [...]
Sotu the Taveller hooked up with Nalden to make this ill video for his track HourGlass. It tripped me out at first. I started to hear that backwards record sound on the track and the video was in forward motion. At first there were small changes I started to notice, like the video was going [...]
