The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee's new album 'The Iceberg' is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, 'The Iceberg' is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick R&B and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.

22,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Junior Makhno sounds like the name of a destructive experimental virus still being studied in an obscure laboratory.If the very first premises of danger appeared at the end of the 90's, it was not until 2007 that the first victim was declared: Junior Makhno had just won a remix contest organized by Dj Muggs (Cypress Hill) annihilating the other contestants.Since then the rhythmic flail has never ceased to spread over Hip Hop, Increasing its vigor beat after beat to finally cross the Atlantic and contaminate the albums of Ill Bill, Goretex (Non Phixion), Vinnie Paz, Jedi Mind Tricks, or Diabolic.No bling, no sung hooks. No attempt of smoothed arrangements. With his soviet synthesizers, his beats from beyond the grave in which you can imagine swinging scalps coming straight from forgotten B-movies and his oppressing loops carved in soul music and war brass, the Makhno style oozes the street as well as post-apocalyptic moods.Any emcee thinking about rapping over one of his productions must give up any idea of humming or murmuring sweet nothings.So, when the time to disclose his devastating beats to the world has finally arrived, Junior Makhno releases an album under his own name and rallies behind him a cohort of emcees ready to brutalize the instrumental, skin the bassline, hit the bars without looking back, without worrying about the damages done. Ill Bill and Diabolic are still involved, joigning new enthusiasts like Lateb, Chief Kamachi, Dirt Platoon, Vic Spencer, Vendetta Kingz, Planet Asia, IDE & Alucard, Esoteric & Vakill.Rhyming while being perfused by a deleterious infusion applied by Junior Makhno, becoming voluntarily the actors of the fourteen tracks of Party discipline.Fourteen tracks kept under pressure by Dj Djaz & Dj Nix'On, fourteen suffocating joints where even instrumental breaks don't allow to have a life-saving breath of fresh air. Hope has packed up. Disfigured, Boom bap is on its knees, ready to receive its lethal injection.

Genre:Hip Hop
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of “Force Fed” we have teamedup with Fat Beats to release this limited edition colored vinyl.“The debut album from Ide the Shanty One, “Force Fed” is a verbalmaelstrom whipping through the placid seas of 21st centuryunderground hip-hop with thunderous beats and lightning-strike lyrics.Ide displays his furious command of the mic over 23 dark and stormingbeats, his imaginative and visceral word-warping and unrelenting ?owstriking listeners with gut-punch directness. Following Jak Progresso’s“Random Violence” as the 2nd full-length release from Creative JuicesMusic, “Force Fed” heralds the charge of this new artist onto the NYunderground scene: Ide the Shanty One. Already earning respect forexpert production and engineering for various underground artists, nowIde brings forth this manifesto of disgust and impatience with a twistedculture and reminds listeners why hip-hop is NOT dead. Throughout hisfrst lp, he avoids lecturing about society directly but instead proclaimsthis gritty mission statement championing subversive artistry andpsychic exploration. This Creative Juices Music release gathers a totalof 10 producers, including Domingo, Deep and Ben Boogz (2 HungryBro’s/Creative Juices), DJ Connect (Elite Fleet), and others, as well asIde himself, yet projects a unifed sonic stampede of steel-toed hip-hop.Joining The Shanty One on the mic are U.G. (Cella Dwellas), SavageMessiah (formerly of Scienz of Life), Critical, Madness, Alucard, JakProgresso, and L.I.F.E.Long (Stronghold), all contributing cinematicsimiles in an unrelenting ?ood. Ide’s “Force Fed” is compelling inits ferocity, and ftting that he is initiating his chapter in music in thecompany of these well-known fgures on the underground scene.”ForceFed” is for hungry listeners, who’ve had enough of the formula, anddon’t mind a little pain if their rap would only get its edge back. Thisbrazen debut album from Ide the Shanty One is a sure classic for 2007and another strong product from the Creative Juices Music label.

Limited edition of 500 copies!Amsterdam based Kid Sublime (BBE Records) had a first row seat to everything HipHop having spent years working at the Fat Beats store in Amsterdam. While being able to meet most of his heroes in underground rap at the time, one of his favorites was the group Maspyke who dropped a number of well received 12’s in the late 90s and early 2000’s.As Kid Sublime’s music repertoire ventured in and out of rap world, one of his loves remains hiphop. As luck would have it, both Sublime and Tableek had projects for Faces Records (France), and the label head Pablo felt it would be dope to get Kid Sublime and Tableek to meet up during a tour date in Amsterdam. It was during this first meeting that they recorded the first banger “Rulez” in record time, and the conversation for more was set.Subsequent visits to Holland by Tableek led to “A Deepest Blue”. With this recording Sublime brings a DJ sensibility, a high admiration and understanding of making beats “swing” and technical skill to bring that gritty NY soulful hiphop sound that Gangstarr, De La Soul, and other classic acts pioneered. In turn Tableek chose and molded the music to fit the mood, picked sounds that paint a colorful canvas, and devised songs that reflect on what artists are meant to do: provoke thought and inspire.“A Deepest Blue Blue” is not meant to be a dark “fantasy”. Instead it is a proclamation of depth, stability, truth, and loyalty, Stay tuned.

Combining a larger-than-life sound with their signature triplet flow, tracks like “Bad and Boujee”, “T-Shirt” and “Kelly Price” have been ubiquitous of late and the trio has taken their rightful place at the pinnacle of the rap world. It’s hard to say whether the masses expected greatness from the energizing trio but they’ve taken full advantage of the opportunity at hand.

"Known Unknowns" is Billy Woods’ new album, a follow-up to 2013’s Blockhead collaboration "Dour Candy". Blockhead is still behind the boards here but there are also a couple beats from his longtime collaborator Aesop Rock. But the center of the whirlwind is still Woods, who re-emerges from a two-year hiatus after releasing the avant-garde "Today, I Wrote Nothing" in early 2015. "Known Unknowns" finds the artist on more melodic ground, but still his esoteric, acerbic self, spinning verses equal parts joy and terror, wry wit and blind rage. There are guest appearances from ELUCID (Armand Hammer), as well as Aesop Rock, Homeboy Sandman, Googie, singer Barrie McLain and DJ Mo Niklz. Since "Dour Candy", Blockhead has worked with Aesop, Sandman and MarQ Spekt but "Known Unknowns" shows that he and woods have developed their own unique chemistry.

For your listening pleasure Herring presents 4 dope tracks from Shawn Lov's 14th and final album. The Trenton MC has been laying down tracks since 1989 and recorded from 1989-1996 at his father's studio - the very same spot that Courageous Chief, Royal Family, Soul Survivors, and Shakespeare and Last Empire recorded their grails! Being from Trenton you might guess he would've been tight with Tony D [R.I.P.] - which he was. The legendary Poor Righteous Teachers producer mentored Shawn until his untimely passing and produced and featured on a bunch of Shawn's jawns. Included on this project is production from Shawn himself as well as the excellent The Custodian of Records and German beatmaker Raiden. ENJOY YO!!!.New Jersey based Shawn Lov began his career as a recording artist in 1994 with the release of his first LP "Speak of the Devil," which led to various live performances and guest appearances including Video Music Box Events (1994-1995), acting as the opener for Mobb Deep, King Sun, Big Pun and Ol' Dirty Bastard (1995), and as a musical guest on The Jenny Jones Show (1998). By 1997, Shawn Lov was collaborating with the late legendary Hip-Hop producer Tony- D of Poor Righteous Teacher and YZ fame, and their collaborations yielded hits like "The Lov Doctor," "I'm Pathetic," and "Respect This." Shawn's second LP "The G.O.D." was released in 1998, and was produced entirely by Tony D. It wasn't until Shawn Lov dropped his "Never Never Land" LP in 2000 that he began topping the charts on mp3.com and quickly gained a loyal underground following which expanded even further following his partnership overseas with Nuffsaid.

Official Army Of The Pharaohs and Demigodz emcee Blacastan has been steadily staking his claim to the title of ‘savior of underground rap music’ since his debut mixtape Me Against The Radio and its key cut and video "Life Of A Tape" became an underground cult classic in 2007. The rapper turned his attention to the mic after the Hartford, CT street life, and his strong-arm style of handling business, left a then 16-year-old Blacastan serving a bid in the mid-'90s. He emerged from prison with a remarkable skill set, a throwback style, and an unrivaled drive.His 2010 debut album Blac Sabbath boasted production & vocals from the likes of Statik Selektah, Blue Sky Black Death, Mr. Green, Esoteric and Celph Titled, and 2012’s The Master Builder Part II, which was mixed by legendary DJ Doo Wop, had features from Slaine and Reef the Lost Cauze, among others. He has since also racked up appearances on Jedi Mind Tricks Violence Begets Violence, the Army of The Pharaohs albums In Death Reborn and Heavy Lies The Crown, the Demigodz Killmatic album, Apathy’s Wanna Snuggle?, Mr Lif’s Don’t Look Down and Czarface’s A Fistful of Peril, plus toured extensively across Europe, North America, and Australia with Celph Titled and Block McCloud.2014 saw Blac teaming up with producer and longtime AOTP and Demigodz collaborator Stu Bangas for the first installment of Watson & Holmes, which featured Esoteric, Apathy, Celph Titled and Vinnie Paz.

Genre:Hip Hop
Find a moment of clarity. ¡Eureka! is the new LP on Alpha Pup from Eureka the Butcher, a collection of intense, involved tracks with deliberate arrangements and undefinable style.Artists and searchers long for that “eureka” moment – an illuminated instance of clear purpose and pure focus. For Eureka the Butcher, as for many, the light follows the dark:“I wrote a lot of this album at a very dark time in my life. I’d lost some very important people in my life and I was at my most insecure, personally and musically speaking. I had to remember where I come from, who I’d learned from. I was at a low point and I hadn’t been applying my culture and my upbringing to my everyday life. But then I had a moment of clarity, and I started to feel better. I began remembering that I come from an incredible place, raised and taught by incredible people. Then I made some drastic decisions, including moving to Los Angeles. I also had a eureka moment in terms of workflow and approach.”The album’s multifaceted nature reflects Eureka’s diverse inspiration. Modular synth music of the ‘60s and ‘70s. LA’s rap, electronic, beat, and bass music scene. Hardware used to create the album dominates its sonic profile, from synthesizers and outboard compressors to live percussion and tape delays.“But the biggest influence is the music I grew up with: salsa, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, and fusion. These types of music taught me how to play… I gravitated towards what I know: psychedelia, fast bass, synth lines, Caribbean rhythms and extremely tight relationships between interwoven parts.”

An heirloom is just something that’s passed down through a family. We get heirlooms in the form of game, encouragement or wise words. I know everyone has an aunt or uncle that’s given them some bars about life in general. I have a village around me that have given me heirlooms in the form of conversations”.

Dan The Automator’s and Kool Keith’s famed collaboration from the mid-‘90s is celebrated with a 28-track set housed in a custom, octagonal box, with 5 unreleased songs (originals + remixes); original Pushead cover artwork; and 40 page liner notes booklet. All Songs on Side F have never ever been released before anywhere!In early 1996, a new indie duo appeared that won over a whole new international audience, from hard rocks to skate punks. That pair was Dr. Octagon: Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and Kool Keith [Thornton].In some ways, the Dr. Octagon album is a solo release. But Keith wasn’t the only hand on deck. He brought along a young, New York-based MC with him: Sir Menelik. Menelik was featured on four album tracks, starting with “Dr. Octagon,” and proved to be an excellent super-scientifical, fast-rhyming foil to Keith. And there was one final featured contributor who helped add to the album’s next-level sound: San Francisco’s DJ Q*Bert, who cuts on half of the album’s songs.The album originally came out on The Automator’s Bulk Recordings label in early 1996, with cover art by metal and punk cult hero visual artist Pushead. Pressing numbers weren’t huge, but as the year went on, the buzz grew, and a slightly expanded version of the album was released on James Lavelle’s London-based Mo Wax label. Then Dan took an offer from newly-formed major label DreamWorks, to re-release the album with extra tracks in mid-1997. The new domestic pressing allowed for a bigger press push, as well as the group’s first and only video, for “Blue Flowers.”Beyond “Blue Flowers,” the album is chock-full of mind-bending tracks, like “Earth People”; the wacked-out but sincere love ballad “Girl Let Me Touch You”; the metal-tinged “I’m Destructive”; Q-Bert’s turntable workout “Bear Witness”; and, of course, freaky Keith skits like “Elective Surgery” and “General Hospital”. “Dr. Octagonecologyst” is one of the most unique rap records the genre has ever seen, and this is the perfect way to celebrate it – whether it’s the first time you have heard this mind-expanding record, or the three thousandth.

Daher ist ZIPDRIVEDISCO unter Umständen auch für Leute interessant, die ansonsten nicht allzu viel mit aktuellem Hip Hop anfangen können.Produktion/Cuts/Mix: DJ Tom Select (Lost Hill Music)Mastering: Robin Schmidt (24-96 Studios, Karlsruhe/Germany)Artwork: Dominik Osswald (Linear Lab

When Kay the Aquanaut says, the American dream is a nightmare... and the nightmare is everywhere, on the track American Expre$$ from his latest collaboration, 7 Vessels, with producer Factor Chandelier, it resonates in a way that is particularly salient in these uneasy times. But despite this nightmare, 7 Vessels provides a life raft in the midst of a sea of disingenuousness. 7 Vessels is Kay and Factor Chandeliers sixth album together and the culmination of their long-running collaborative relationship. The result is a work that incorporates Factor Chandeliers signature meticulous hip hop production work seamlessly with Kays thought-provoking lyrics. Chandelier, known for sample-free beats and live instrumentation, creates a soundscape that is so sophisticated that it reveals something new on each listen. On his tenth release, Kay has solidied his reputation as a captivating songwriter and fresh voice. The sharp social commentary combined with the intricate and multi-layered production gives 7 Vessels a power and authenticity that is rare. And despite the political slant of the album, 7 Vessels is still a smooth, sailboat deck at sunset journey through waves of moods. With appearances by Ceschi and Paranoid Castle, the album creates a sense of community weaving together dierent voices.

But despite this nightmare, 7 Vessels provides a life raft in the midst of a sea of disingenuousness. 7 Vessels is Kay and Factor Chandeliers sixth album together and the culmination of their long-running collaborative relationship. The result is a work that incorporates Factor Chandeliers signature meticulous hip hop production work seamlessly with Kays thought-provoking lyrics. Chandelier, known for sample-free beats and live instrumentation, creates a soundscape that is so sophisticated that it reveals something new on each listen. On his tenth release, Kay has solidied his reputation as a captivating songwriter and fresh voice. The sharp social commentary combined with the intricate and multi-layered production gives 7 Vessels a power and authenticity that is rare. And despite the political slant of the album, 7 Vessels is still a smooth, sailboat deck at sunset journey through waves of moods. With appearances by Ceschi and Paranoid Castle, the album creates a sense of community weaving together dierent voices.

Over the past 17 years, Brother Ali has earned wide critical acclaim for his deeply personal, socially conscious, and inspiring brand of hip-hop. Under Rhymesayers Entertainment, he's unleashed a series of lauded projects, establishing himself as one of the most respected independent voices in music. The latest chapter in that celebrated journey is All the Beauty in This Whole Life, a 15-track collection produced entirely by Atmosphere's Anthony "Ant" Davis. "This entire album is based on the reality that beauty is the splendor of truth" says the Minneapolis MC. "Beauty in all of its forms is the outward manifestation of love and virtue. It soothes the soul and pulls it gently toward the truth it communicates. Every word and note of this album is intended to either reflect beauty, or expose the ugliness that blocks us from living lives of meaning." All the Beauty in This Whole Life is Ali's first official release in five years and represents the newest and most refined chapter of his life's journey. "Each of my albums are the result of the pain, growth and eventual healing that I experience. Articulating the pain and navigating the healing allows the people who really feel my music to travel with me. It's not only that we hurt together, we heal together as well." Contrasting intensely heavy moments with joyous and grateful ones, All the Beauty in This Whole Life arrives right on time, to help heal a divided nation through the power of music. Ali wouldn't have it any other way. "In times of great suffering in the outside world, the most important battles start from within."

Javotti Media presents the album release “Here For A Reason” by K'Valentine.K’Valentine made her entrance into this world on a cold snowy day at a downtown Chicago hospital. She served as an early Christmas gift for her mother. The news of her birth also excited her father, Valentine Ogilvie Reid, who at the time, was incarcerated in another state. At an early age, in spite of many family hardships, K’Valentine excelled academically and in the Arts. Anything associated with creativity was and still is her forte.K’s exceptional artistic ability was so evident that it’s no surprise that music became her life’s passion. When she discovered the power of hip hop, it became her first love. Soon enough, she was impressing friends and family with her vast knowledge about the world of hip hop. K’Valentine began her lyrical journey by writing poetry to get out emotions she wanted to express. After a chance meeting with world renowned poet laureate Dr. Maya Angelou before she passed, K’Valentine was encouraged to practice until she mastered her craft. On the advice of Dr. Angelou, K wrote poetry non-stop, and those poems eventually transitioned into songs.After reciting poetry at numerous spoken word events and receiving positive feedback, it was time for K to finally get in the booth. In 2014, K’Valentine linked up with Javotti Media, a label owned by hip hop star Talib Kweli, and began to work on her third mixtape, “Million Dollar Baby”, where you find K’Valentine rhyming over tracks that are new as well as her versions of existing hits, giving the listener a well-rounded perspective of a young lady that can lyrically spar with the best of them.

Tougher Than Leather

Release:1988 / US – Reissue
Genre:Hip Hop
Too many people sleep on Tougher Than Leather, Run-DMC’s fourth album. But hear us out as we plead the case for this amazing LP. By 1988 there was a lot more competition in the rap game – Public Enemy, Boogie Down Productions, Eric B. & Rakim, Ice-T and many more had given Hollis, Queens’ prodigal sons lots of competition. But Joe, Darryl and Jay were still at the top of their game, and hip-hop fans should never let this classic – chiefly produced by their Queens neighbor, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Davy D[MX] – get lost in their crates.For starters, the album’s first single, “Run’s House” b/w “Beats To The Rhyme” is arguably the most powerful one-two punch of the trio’s career, showing contenders to the rap throne that they could still destroy a beat, tag-teaming with power at any speed. Not to be lost in the shuffle, fans were also reminded on both sides that Jam-Master Jay remained one of the world’s best DJs, flexing the pinnacle of what would be called “turntablism” a decade later. Both songs show a musical telepathy between all three that has rarely been equaled. The second single, “Mary, Mary,” driven by an infectious Monkees sample, took a different approach, shrewdly ensuring that pop fanswho jumped on the Raising Hell bandwagon had something to chew on. But, like “Walk This Way,” the song wasn’t just bubblegum – there was an edge to it, and the lyrical gymnastics were very real. It wasn’t selling out, it was allowing fans to buy in. “Papa Crazy,” driven in concept and by a sample from the Temptations’ “Papa Was A Rolling Stone,” followed a similar pop-leaning path.Overall, the lyrical content on the album was a step up from the group’s first three LPs. It’s easy to infer, looking back, that they were feeling the heat from their younger competitors in the rap game. The genre was changing fast, and they were up to the challenge. On cutslike “Radio Station” they bring substance to the grooves, by attacking Black Radio for its continual denigration of rap. “Tougher Than Leather” reminds the world that they were still the Kings of Rock, with hard guitars to drive the point home. And “They Call Us Run-DMC” and “Soul To Rock And Roll” both bring things back to their early days, with sure-fire park jam rhymes and killer cuts.Tougher Than Leather, which went platinum up against a lot of competition, perfectly bookends the ‘80s output of one of the decade’s most important groups. It encompasses the full range of the trio’s capabilities, and reminds us that Run-DMC should never be forgotten as both pioneers and party-rockers. And so, we say, long live Joe, Darryl and Jay!

US Hip Hop

Wer hätte vor über 40 Jahren gedacht, dass US Hip Hop einen solch immensen Einfluss auf die Sprache von Generationen ausübt? Amerikanischer Hip Hop entstand in den frühen Siebziger Jahren, den Grundstein legte DJ Kool Herc mit seinen Block Partys. Anfangs sorgten MCs noch für die verbale Unterstützung der DJs, doch schon bald drängten sie sich in die Hautrolle. Spätestens als der SP1200 den TR-808 verdrängte, konnten HipHop-Kids mühelos Zeilen der wichtigsten Wortakrobaten zitieren. In der zweiten Hälfte der Achtziger Jahre mauserte sich US Hip Hop von einer Subkultur zu einem globalen Hype. Zuerst in den USA, dann in Europa und Japan…

Die Golden Era des US-Rap

Slick Rick brachte das Storytelling auf die nächste Stufe, Public Enemy mauserten sich zum politischen Sprachrohr der Schwarzen Gemeinde. Die Ultramagnetic MC’s gaben textlich und musikalisch einen Vorgeschmack auf den US Hip Hop der Zukunft. Das Kollektiv Native Tongues stellte die besonnene Alternative zur Sprache der Straße dar. Und bald entdeckten Produzenten wie DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock oder Q-Tip Jazz als Sample-Quelle. Während an der East Coast die Rapper mit großem Vokabular wetteiferten, zelebrierte man an der Westküste den Gangsta-Rap. Mit durchschlagendem Erfolg, was man schnell merkte. Mit Kool G Rap oder Schoolly D gab es an der Ostküste bereits MCs, die vorher wortgewandt den Lifestyle eines Gangsters thematisiert hatten, doch Eazy-E, Ice Cube, MC Ren, Dr. Dre und DJ Yella waren radikaler, offensiver, einfach lauter und medienwirksamer.

US Hip Hop von den 1990er Jahren bis heute

In den Neunziger Jahren entwickelte sich US Hip Hop dann zu einem Massenphänomen. Die Beats aus dem MPC und clevere Wortspiele begeisterten die Massen. Rap Tracks führten nicht nur die Hip-Hop Charts an. Mit Hilfe von Biggie Smalls definierte Puff Daddy den Mainstream neu. Heute sind einige der Golden Era-MCs der lebende Beweis dafür, dass man auch im gehobenen Alter noch fesselnde Reime abliefern kann. Bei diesem Thema fallen einem sofort Namen wie KRS-One, Kool Keith, Kool G Rap, GZA, Pharoahe Monch, Freddie Foxxx, Sadat X oder O.C. ein. Und auch nach über 25 Jahren im Geschäft rocken Produzenten wie Pete Rock, Large Professor oder DJ Premier noch das Pult im Studio. Neue Künstler aus allen Regionen der USA kreieren ihre eigene Version des US Hip Hop und begeistern sogar eingefleischte Old Schooler. Aber auch wenig beachtete Rapper aus den Neunziger Jahren gelingt manchmal erst im höheren Alter der Durchbruch. Has-Lo, Roc Marciano, KA, Billy Woods, Crews wie Pro Era, Odd Future oder A$AP Mob und frische Gesichter wie Your Old Droog oder RAST RFC drücken der amerikanischen Rap-Musik heute ihren Stempel auf. El-P, Apollo Brown, The Alchemist oder L’Orange beleben währenddessen die Sound-Landschaft des US Hip Hop. Und von generationsübergreifenden Gemeinschaftsprojekten profitieren MC, Produzent und Fans.
