Ace Tee – Bist du down ?

I have no idea how, but Ace Tee & this overly-infectious track (with 90’s inspired visuals) slipped through my internet. Kwam.e‚s warm and full-bodied beat completely passed me by. I’m lowkey gutted that this has been around for approximately 8 months without me hearing/seeing. Shame on me. Shouts to the stylist. Bump & enjoy!

VIDEO: Chuuwee – Desire

Shouts to Chuuwee always with the dope production/selection & thought-provoking lyrics. The Cali-based MC can come with the street-savvy bars or kick book knowledge, often flipping between both styles with ease. Desire lays bare the creative personal wants & wishes making „Desire“ an intriguingly personal track. Check the visuals (direction from Alan Michael & Chuuwee)…

DBegun – Nasimoto

Huge props to DBegun for fusing two of my faves. Only good things can happen when one combines music of such a high calibre . God level hip hop from the years of olde. Back when mixtapes were actual cassettes and albums got the attention, rotation and critical acclaim they deserved. If you’re unfamiliar with…

Tokoyo – Singles

  Winter heat from German beatmaker Tokoyo. His project Singles is a moody, lo-fi, loop-ladden project that starts off strong with the instantly-recognizable vocal from the Queen’s Bridge general and continues in a similarly strong vein. Tokoyo manuvers the listener through 7-tracks of chill terrain changing tempos & moods without ever switching the vibe. A…

Record Stores: Hamburg

Už jsme tu měli Amsterdam, Berlín, Londýn a nezapomenutelné San Francisco s New Yorkem. A kdo jste ještě nikdy nebyli v Hamburku a čekáte Berlín v bledě modrém, tak se šeredně pletete. Chvílemi nám přišlo, že snad ani nejsme v Německu a taky že to, co je dnes v Hamburku cool, přijde do zbytku Evropy s minimálně měsíčním zpožděním….

Video: Mndsgn – Cosmic Perspective
