Discovering gems like this EP is one of the reasons I keep doing what I’m doing without getting paid. I was going about my day and listening to stuff on Sound Cloud. Checking out all kinds of tracks and just exploring. About 10 tracks later I ran across Tiger Tsunamiand the artwork to Re: Antarctica EP. “Dope cover and interesting group name, let me check this out.” First track ,Antarctica, “where can I get this?!?” I left it playing as I checked out Tiger Tsunami’s Sound Cloud profile page. Clicking every link they had on it. Waves,“where’s the download button?” I was reading the tags they labeled their music; ambient electronic, future bass, post-dubstep, and couldn’t think of a better way to describe it. I love love love the Re: Antarctica EP, and can’t wait until they drop more music. Download Tiger Tsunami - Re:Antarctica EP on Band Camp. BIG thanks Tiger Tsunami for making great music.
Does Tres know how to put out a beat tape or what?!? This is one of those sneaky sneak attacks on your ear drums. A heavily independent hip hop label cranks out a beat tape, Nueve, showcasing damn near an evil genius lineup. I’m not going to name names, but it will fry your brain. Nueve is one of those albums where I saw the album artwork first and said, “hmmm what’s this?” Nueve had me motivated and bebopping around the office. Tres is not one you should be sleeping on. They are cranking out the albums. I’ve got another Tres release, Fonetik Simbol – Super Chop Beat Tape, next in the headphones. Download Tres Records 9th Anniversary beat tape on TresRecords.com. BIG shout to the good folks at Tres for keeping me up to par.
Ignorant Prayers is the injection hip-hop needs. These beats are ridiculous. Jeremiah Jae is a monster at this production shit. When I was listening to Ignorant Prayers and thinking, “what will Gibson not say?” I am grossly attracted to this album and listen to it at least once a week. The hook on Windows is catchy, but you think twice about singing it out loud. Fishscale has that hypnotic beat that you played over and over again. Each track is an entertaining ridiculous short story. Ignorant Prayers is a banging project you need to check, and this sh!t is free. Download Azizi Gibson x Jeremiah Jae – Ignorant Prayers on Brainfeeder.
Let me sum it up. Seven Dayis a dynamic duo made up of Jay Diction and L!STED. Very talented cats that keep coming with good music. L!STED is bringing The Crystal Ship to your ears. Beat after beat, I just keep asking myself, “how come folks ain’t up on this cat?” Well no worries and hopefully this will shine some light on them. L!STED is coming hard one beat at a time on The Crystal Ship, and he gives you eight tracks of head nodding. Nothing else left to say, but get this and turn up the volume. Download L!STED – The Crystal Ship on Band Camp. BIG thanks L!STED for making dope beats. Keep it going brotha.
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 and again. Just left it on repeat. I was driving by the ocean on PCH and Royal came on. I had the windows down and cranked up the volume. It was a good drive. Used Vinyl Review just made that day a little more brighter with each track. BIG thanks Ill Clinton for this pretty ill instrumentals album.
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. HawdWerkkeep doing what you’re doing brother. Check out HawdWerk at Blue Collar WERK. BIG thanks to Cov Original Music for the heads up.
