EOM – Further

The good folks at Knock Study/ Knock Steady let me know their good friend EOM, Elements Of Music, dropped an instrumental that I would dig. After listening to some Duke Westlake I figured some good things were coming from that camp. Elements Of Music’s album Further is a well composed collective of sounds that makes great music. There are a few samples in there that you might recognize, but the way that EOM uses them almost makes you forget that they are samples. Further is such a hefty album of tracks that you’ll find something in it to bump for sure. Buy Elements Of Music – Further on Band Camp. BIG thanks Deeana for the heads up.

Jansport J – Save My Soul

Jansport J is a dangerous man on the beats, and this time he’s bring the soul with Save My Soul. Rocking to it in my headphones at work, getting into the vibe, and before I knew it I had listened to the whole album. Just like Jansport J’s earlier release, MoveMeants, this is an all instrumental album that you can just press play. Last Saturday at Store XIII (13) Jansport J had a listening party for Save My Soul, and a few advanced copies for sale. Soul music is like soul food, you always feel at home no matter where you’re at. Save My Soul gave me that same feeling listening to it on Store XIII sound system. This album is worth picking up. Buy your copy of Jansport J – Save MySoul on Band Camp or a physical copy at Store XIII. On a side note this is one of many releases off the Cov Original Music label, so keep your eyes open for what’s next. BIG thanks to Abraham for the heads up, and Jansport J for making dope music to rock to.

K. Sparks – Super Senior

K.Sparks - Super SeniorMy man Thelonious was dropping beat tape after beat tape. One day we were tweeting, and he mentioned  he was looking to work with some emcees. K. Sparks was one that he brought up a couple of times, and told me to  keep my ears open. Shortly after, Thelonious emailed me this dope track called Obsession that I kept playing it over and over. It’s a little dark, but the combo of the 2 works is awesome. I started digging for more K. Sparks stuff, but no luck. A couple of months passed and I seen that 2 Dope Boyz and KevinNottingham.com presents K. Sparks Super Senior. I was like “what?! That’s dope.” The album has a good mix and with 25 tracks you’ll find the one you crank the volume up on. Obsession isn’t featured on Super Senior, but I’m sure there’s another project in the works with it. Download K. Sparks – Super Senior from DJBooth.net. Also check out Thelonious – Big Wheels & Gold Teeth. BIG thanks to Thelonious for the heads up.

Hawdwerk & Jansport J – High Power Moves

Hawdwerk & Jansport J - High Power MovesRight off, WOW is a banging track! Ok to the story- Jansport J and Hawdwerk teamed up to crank out the album High Power Moves. I got the title track High Power Moves from Jansport J, and was digging it. I hit him up for some more, and he dropped Wow on me. It just keeps getting better, so you know I’m going to hit’em up  again. If this is what’s to come of the rest of the album, I can’t wait.  Both tracks have hard hitting beats and Hawdwerk drops some dope lyrics.  2Dope Boys & KevinNottingham.com co-signed High Power Moves and will be available for a free download on November 10 (download full album here). BIG thanks to Jansport J for the heads up.
