Oddisee – Alwasta EP

Never one to rest on his musical laurels, the brother Oddisee keeps treading his ever-evolving path of sonic goodness! Creating a cosy habitat where sweet-soul music meets hip hop in a marriage with pleasing results. I’m always keen to hear what the Sudanese­-American artist has to say. Predictably, both production and bars are on point…

Record Stores: London

Poslední dobou je Londýn mnohdy cenově i časově dostupnější než je například pro Moraváky Praha. Pokud tomu tak opravdu je, nic nám nebrání tomu vyrazit na pár dní přes La Manche na menší prohlídku místních vinylshopů. Co se týče jednotlivých čtvrtí Londýna, největší hustota shopů je v části Soho. Kolikrát se ale spíše vyplatí urazit nějaký…

Jungle Brown – Flight 314

MoSik, Ric*, MaEar and Tony Bones bring that throw-back sound that’s sure to spark the much-coveted mainstream attention so many artists crave. Unlike the madding crowd these chaps make that pure, unadulterated hip hop. The outfit’s Flight 314 release effortlessly flips between Native Tongues-style, lighthearted, wordplay-driven rap fodder to deeper, reflective, modern trife-life tales. Sickly-smooth…

Melodiesinfonie – Be Thankful LP

Melodiesinfonie‚s Be Thankful LP is the second release from the Swiss producer. Choosing to walk down the well-trodden „Dilla-esque“ path, Melodiesinfonie’s beats are rich and jazzy (much like the aforementioned late/great) with spiritual vibes flowing freely. Musical appearances come in the form of Miles Bonny, Djemeia (her „Peaceyea“ track is a personal favourite of mine),…

Them That Do – Them That Do…

Philly-based Them That do (emcees; Phat Hentoff, Jasper Brown, and Chuck Daily + beat-maker/producer Small Professor) pride themselves in the age-old tradition of coming together to produce quality art. The jazzy breaks and samples which have been painstakingly chopped & fused together to create this incredibly coherent and enjoyable body of work, worthy of your…

Freddie Joachim – This World

The Mellow Orange head and super-nice producer Freddie Joachim released the funk-driven „This World“ project yesterday. As expected Joachim doesn’t dissapoint with 8-tracks of jazz, soul & hip hop fusion. The Cali- based DJ/producer hasn’t put a foot wrong with a slew of quality projects in his back catalogue, a catalogue that „This World“ slots…

Recordshopy a další spoty v New York City

New York – hlavní město zeměkoule. Jezdí sem lidé ze všech koutů světa, což dohromady vytváří asi tu nejunikátnější kulturu vůbec. Vášeň pro cestování, hip hop, diggin‘ a fotografování. To je jen několik důvodů z mnoha, proč jsme se do New Yorku vydali my. Naší cestě předcházela důkladná příprava od stolu. Následně jsme vytvořili seznam míst…

Zuke Saga – Megalon

Claim your format and support this release. Are you the limited 50 pieces only cassette type? Or perhaps straight up MP3 is more your style. Whichever way you chose, the bottom line is that this release is well-worth owning in some format (why not go crazy and chose cassette AND MP3!) Seattle natives J’von &…
