That list includes Large Pro, the production duo “Buda The Future & Grandz”, Jay Supiria , Seth Silensir and Chillow. All songs are edited, mixed and mastered by Belgian company Catharsis Productions.Reap’s first official release was the collaboration with Chillow on a full length LP (Reap ‘n Chillow, “NY2BE”) after meeting through a mutual friend & simply feeling each other’s vibe. Reap started rhyming in junior high school 168 in Flushing Queens after a friend engaged him with a freestyle. Reap went home and wrote a rhyme to recite the following day at school. Although already a fan of Hiphop. Reap never heard someone say a rap live so it inspired him. As a part of many groups and duos growing up and rhyming in as a hundred ciphers a day (no exaggeration) Reap honed his skills. “The Naturaw EP” is a Hiphop, soul genre featuring Kool G Rap, Jeffrey Jefferson (BE), Timon Mattelaer (BE).The result is hard hitting drums. Soulful rhythms & witty slick vocals!!!

For Ro Spit and 14KT, they’ve built a small empire on their own as solo artists. Ro Spit has amassed a career spanning across 3 albums, 2 mixtapes, and countless of features including Royce Da 5’9”, Denaun Porter, Bun B, Freeway and Raheem DeVaughn just to name a few. Not to mention a reality TV show centered around his world famous brand Burn Rubber that was produced by Eminem. The production arm of RSXGLD, 14KT, is 8 albums deep into his career. KT has paired with some of the best in the game, having worked with a who’s who of today’s artists such as Roc Marciano, Danny Brown, Black Milk, Bun B, eLZhi, Oddisee, Skyzoo, Jay Electronica, and even a collaboration album with his fellow Ann Arbor compadré Mayer Hawthorne as they formed the duo Jaded Inc. Nothing, however, in their respective discographies has sounded more organic and masterful than the combination of Ro and KT. “Every project that I’ve done he’s been a part of,” says Ro. “To be honest, he’s my favorite producer.” The chemistry they’ve been able to develop over the years is evident throughout Ro’s discography on tracks like “Leave Me Alone” taken from Octane & iLLite’s The Forgotten... Chosen and the Freeway featured “Forefeit” from Ro’s Glass Ceiling Project. It’s only right that the two have taken their time to create an organic piece of work unlike anything they’ve done before, set to debut this Fall on Fat Beats Records. “Leading up to this, my whole career, I intentionally didn’t show vulnerability. I didn’t want people to know about me,” Ro exclaims. RSXGLD is the lyrical maturation of Ro Spit while this group pushed 14KT to new creative levels sonically. “I’ve used Maschine for 3 years but I haven’t really come out with any projects making beats in this way. It was a totally new process for me,” KT notates. “Sonically, I’ve created in a way that I’ve never created before. It’s all different and out of my comfort zone.” This is a true, social experiment. This is music made from the soul that encompasses every aspect of the human experience. This is how you push beyond your limits.This is RSXGLD.

“The Science of Sesh – From Iceland to Africa” is a retrospective compilation of Scotty Hard production and remix work from more than the past 20 years (1993 to 2016). The album features rare and unreleased collaborations with the likes of Antipop Consortium, New Kingdom, Lady Bug Mecca, Emily Wells, Rubble Kings, Metabolics, Mauritsstadt Dub, Stan Douglas (Suspiria) and Medeski. Original artwork was created by Kidacne.Scotty's two closest Brazilian friends and musical collaborators were the impetuous for this release, who wanted to release a limited-edition vinyl album of some of Scotty's unreleased and "under released" tracks that showcased his beat making and remixing achievements, which have been too often overlooked and overwhelmed by his production and mixing output. Scotty send a bunch of tracks, which came up a ten song album that not only traces almost 25 years of music making in New York and around the world, but somehow became a cohesive statement of an artist continually growing & creating. The Wire magazine called it “a thrilling collection of timelessly mindbending music.”Who is Charles Scott Harding aka Scotty Hard? First of all, Scotty Hard is a musician, producer, beatmaker, sound engineer and sound scientist, who left his footprint on early 90’s New York hip hop.In Vancouver in the 80’s during the burgeoning alternative scene Scotty was playing guitar in a bunch of bands and writing music. His passion for recording and hip hop led him to New York City at the end of the 1980’s where he landed right in the epicentre of hip hop production at Calliope Studios and Chung King House of Metal. It was here he worked with a roll-call of hip hop’s seminal artists including Ultramagnetic MC’s, De la Soul, The Jungle Brothers, Gangstarr, Brand Nubian, Black Sheep, DJ Mark the 45 King, The Stereo MC’s, PM Dawn and many more.After working on ‘Supernatural’ with The Stereo MC’s, he introduced the fledgling young group New Kingdom to Gee St Records, and for the first time shifted from a focus on engineering to production. He produced, wrote and performed with New Kingdom on two albums over 4 years.From there Scotty went on to produce for downtown avant jazzers Medeski, Martin and Wood and Sex Mob, and Japanese space punks Ultra Bidé. He produced for artists Stan Douglas and Matthew Barney and the indefinable Brazilian “Mange Beat” rockers Nação Zumbi. During this time Scotty was making beats and doing remixes for a profusion of international musicians from Qwaali artist Badar Ali Khan, Anti Pop Consortium and Talking Heads’ David Byrne.In February of 2008, Scotty was involved in a life changing car accident which left him paralyzed from the shoulders down. He was in the hospital for over six months and was released from the second facility in September of 2008. It was only 2 months after this he was mixing at The Brooklyn Academy of Music Opera House for some of his dear friends from Brazil doing the Red Hot and Rio shows with such Brazilian icons as João Parahyba, Bebel Gilberto, Céu, Moreno Veloso under the direction of old friend Kassin and Mario Caldato. He continues to record and mix in his studio and has done a number of records for a wide variety of artists, from Emily Wells to underground rapper Ka, Steven Bernstein's Wicked Knee to English stoner rockers Hag to Brookzill, a new hip hop supergroup with longtime collaborators Prince Paul, Rodrigo Brandão and Ladybug Mecca.Scotty also teaches students at his studio in Brooklyn to utilize and integrate non-digital techniques, instruments and practices into their music.It’s no surprise that this new album has a lot of Scotty and little bit of everyone he ever worked with in it. Many of these tracks have never been released and some that were have slipped through the cracks over the last 20 years of his career.

Every rapper is a struggle rapper. The degree of adversity changes from one tax bracket to the next, but no contract comes with immunity. The pursuit of happiness lasts as long as you do. Stik Figa has been trying to tell you for years. “Central Standard Time”, the Topeka, KS native’s second official Mello Music Group release, is a meditation on struggles new, old, and eternal. Stik Figa’s rhymes remain intricate yet accessible, the words interlocking to create fresh meanings. Every verse displays his hard-won honesty. Though the pains are personal, the moments are strikingly familiar. These are the songs you play when you’re tired of being told to turn up, when you avoid your bank statement like the plague, when you still can’t shake the first time someone called you “nigger,” when another relationship has wrecked your life.With production from venerated heavyweights like Nottz, Exile, Black Milk, and Apollo Brown, there is never a stale loop or drum pattern. Beats crafted to fry subwoofers are offset by those warm and poignant. L’Orange produced lead single “Cold,” deftly straddles that divide. Over cavernous drums and a soul-stirring sample, Stik Figa indicts posturing trap rappers with searing wit. When he’s not dismantling the unoriginal alone, Stik Figa enlists indie luminaries Elzhi, Homeboy Sandman, and Quelle Chris. And on album closer “The Git Down,” he macks alongside Bay Area legend Rappin' 4-Tay. With each feature, the results are even more arresting. Ultimately, “Central Standard Time” is a reminder that sharing our burdens helps others do the same. It’s rap as therapy, the words written to move forward. Listen and do likewise. Struggle waits for no man.

Released on Mello Music Group, “Resolution” is one of those timeless records. The first full-length from Mr. Lif & Akrobatik (The Perceptionists) in a dozen years reflects the struggles and near-death sagas that struck Mr. Lif and Akrobatik. During that span, Lif miraculously survived his tour bus plummeting over a cliff and bursting into flames. Akrobatik weathered a sudden aortic rupture and emergency open-heart surgery. The impact of those experiences forced the former Def Jux duo to contemplate fate, luck, and their own place within a world spinning out of control.But their ability to survive has allowed them to thrive. They’ve harnessed a radiant hard-won optimism that refuses to flinch from the evils of existence. From the album’s first track, “Early Mourning,” Akrobatik asserts that courage comes from within, but reflects on the millions of young black men sent to premature graves. He considers whether gang affiliation is inherent in their souls, or more likely, whether things would be different if these neighborhoods were well lit and effectively policed.If turmoil and inequity currently wrack the globe at record levels, Lif’s verses seem more prophetic than ever. His verses offer searing indictments of corporate and political corruption: corporations oppressing local farms, governmental duplicity in dealing with big pharmaceutical companies, and the crooked brutality of cops who get away with shooting unarmed black men.On “Hose Down,” the pair brilliantly intersperse news reports from the MLK-led Birmingham protests of 1963 with the internecine problems of the present—where a traffic stop can still lead to a funeral. It’s as poignant of a polemic as you’ll find, but blended with a danceable Caribbean lilt.With the Perceptionists, the personal is political and vice-versa. Akrobatik rhymes about his “desire to breathe in the sun before my skin dries out” but still refuses to be “the coward in a pretend hide out.” On “Lemme Find Out,” they kick ingeniously sinister dystopian horror raps about our grotesque addiction to technology. There are love songs over beats that sound like they could’ve been on Madvillainy, stories of cypher demolitions of would-be challengers, and dirty ass rhymes over dirty ass drums—as The Perceptionists sagely insist, that’s all the world really wants.It’s music from deep in the trenches, songs that confront the blitzkrieg of bad news but offer light at the end of the bombardment. If you listen closely, you can intuit a profound story of friendship and camaraderie between Lif and Akrobatik—lifelong friends trading bars with the chemistry of Tip and Phife, Andre and Big Boi, Erick and Parrish. They’re mortal men who made mistakes, gained experience, and obtained wisdom. This is “Resolution”.

In his book, J. Sands' rhymes were all devoted to glorious, immortal, competitor and competitive Hip Hop.

Rappers Vinnie Paz (Jedi Mind Tricks) and ILL Bill (Non-Phixion) return with their sideproject, Heavy Metal Kings, to drop their first studio album together in over 6 years, Black God White Devil.Both MCs have been staples of the independent hip-hop scene for more than two decades having followed unrelenting paths to their current destinations as they made their bones during a prolific period of independent hip-hop in the '90s and early '00s. They are like-minded rappers who eschewed the traditional routes of the industry matrix and, instead, took a fiercely independent attitude when it came to their craft. Beyond their indelible work with their respective groups, Jedi Mind Tricks and Non-Phixion, Paz and Bill have built successful solo careers while also putting in work with supergroups such as Paz's battle-tested outfit Army of the Pharoahs and Bill's collective of accomplished MCs, La Coka Nostra.

Genre:Hip Hop
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.

Thus stated Special Ed, on his 1989 smash hit, “I Got It Made.” And he backed up that brag throughout histrademark anthem, which featured laid-back brags that MCs a half-decade his senior couldn’t mess with.The Brooklyn MC was only 16 when it was released, making him one of the youngest rappers – especiallyat the time, before the 90s brought us Kris Kross and Lil Bow Wow – to ever have a hip-hop hit. The songitself, which floated over a perfectly hooked up slice of Ripple’s “I Don’t Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky,” was produced by Hitman Howie Tee, who also made waves in the late ‘80s with his cousin, Chubb Rock. When Ed and Howie combined, it was a match made in heaven, and the song exploded in New Yorkbefore taking over worldwide. Eventually becoming sample fodder on dozens of later songs – from Fat Joeto Kendrick Lamar – the track still invokes heavy head-nods today from crowds of all ages.Also included on this special 7-inch is the “Businesslike Version” of the song (also produced by Howie),which also appeared on the original 12-inch. Featuring a minimal, synth-driven backdrop and a quickerpace, it offers an excellent new way to experience Ed’s forward-thinking lyricism.This unique, deluxe “big hole” 7-inch comes housed in a custom Profile 45 jacket.

Genre:Hip Hop
“The California Colors EP” is a pilgrimage to a sacred place. The trio Ernie Fresh, Mophono, and legendary electro producer Egyptian Lover bow at the altar of the artform, offering only the realest expression of the elements. It’s is the four elements, graffiti, breaking, emceeing and deejaying, in harmonious, head-nod bliss. From Ernie Fresh’s dedicated toast, “this one is going out to all the straight up, motherfucking b-boys,” the “California Colors EP” calibrates to a symposium dedicated to the breakers on linoleum, and the renegade artists that paint in rustoleum. The title track is a head trip down the krylon aisle as Fresh dreams of Oxnard Oranges and Gardenia Greens he’ll ignite to the shell of a clean train. Fresh is most notable as the ring leader with the Rakim cadence on DJ Shadow’s “The Sideshow” from 2016’s The Mountain Will Fall, but he’s cut his teeth in Northern California as a member of the group Who Cares. Behind the boards is San Francisco producer Mophono and the legendary Egyptian Lover. The two producers encapsulate a sound that feels like the result of getting lost in video clips of Detroit’s legendary The New Dance Show footage. “The California Colors EP” is a living time capsule of electro futurist production, particularly Egyptian Lover’s mastery of the 808. It’s the result of Mophono obsessing over Kraftwerk’s “It’s More Fun To Compute” and Just Ice’s “Little Bad Johnny,” only to arrive at legendary Rusk Studio in the presence of creator of “Egypt Egypt.” “The California Colors EP” is dedicated to the ones that grew up on Rapmasters tapes in their Walkmans, clipped to their shorts as they pedaled through the neighborhood on BMX bikes. It’s for the ones that snuck out through the bedroom window at midnight with a Jansport full of krylon cans. If you had a black book with no blank pages or a mountain of D batteries in the waste bin, this EP will have you seeing colors as bright as the fresh paint on a burner.

Back in 2008 Delicious Vinyl issued a pairing that was just meant to be with multi-talented Illa J rhyming and singing overa treasure trove of previously untouched Jay Dee gems, a full-circle collaboration and a whole new beginning in the storyof the musically exceptional Yancey brothers...The vinyl on this release will now be available for the first time in years.When Jay Dee passed away from complications relating to lupus in February 2006, he left behind an extraordinarylegacy of production work, including hits for Common, Janet Jackson, and Busta Rhymes. In addition to the hits, he leftbehind a mother lode of previously untouched beats that dates from his time working on the Pharcyde’s sophomorealbum “Labcabincalifornia” (1995). As Delicious owner and founder Michael Ross explains, “From ‘95 through ‘98 JayDee was my go-to guy for hot beats and remixes. He was always making beats, always. So there was a select amountof tracks that he composed for me during that time, tracks as good as anything he’d done, only they never got used.When I finally met Illa J, I gave him a CD containing those unreleased beats.” It was a case of pure serendipity, since21-year-old Illa J had just relocated to Los Angeles and constructed a studio built around Jay Dee’s own recordingequipment, dubbing it Yancey Boy Studios in tribute to their fraternal bond.“Dilla was twelve years older than me,” Illa J says. “So back in the day in Detroit I was just a little kid, sitting on the stairsin our house, watching him make those first beats for Slum Village. I always felt my brother’s tracks and had an instinctfor what I wanted to do over them. One of the things I learned from my brother is that you don’t get that much time, somake the most of it. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my life to doing what I love: music. To work with Delicious Vinyl,the label that released those hits my brother made with The Pharcyde (“Runnin’” and “Drop”) is really special.” MichaelRoss says, “It’s like Jay Dee made these tracks with an extrasensory purpose, so that Illa J could make this album. Thereis no question that this is exactly what they were meant for. These beats belong to Illa J, they’re his birthright.”

Finally, this Mos Def classic gets a proper reissue treatment. “The Ecstatic” is the 2009 fourth studio album by American rapper Mos Def. Released in June 2009, The Ecstatic charted at number nine on the Billboard 200.After venturing further away from hip hop with an acting career and two poorly received albums, Mos Def signed with Downtown Records and recorded “The Ecstatic” primarily at the Record Plant in Los Angeles. He worked with producers such as Preservation, Mr. Flash, Oh No, and Madlib, the latter two of whom reused instrumentals they had produced on Stones Throw Records. Singer Georgia Anne Muldrow, formerly of the record label, was one of the album's few guest vocalists, along with rappers Slick Rick and Talib Kweli. For its front cover, a still from Charles Burnett's 1978 film “Killer of Sheep” was reproduced in red tint.The Ecstatic was described by music journalists as a conscious and alternative hip hop record with an eccentric, internationalist quality. Mos Def's raps about global politics, love, spirituality, and social conditions were informed by the zeitgeist of the late 2000s, Black internalionalism, and Pan-Islamic ideas, as he incorporated a number of Islamic references throughout the album. Its loosely structured, lightly reverbed songs used unconventional time signatures and samples taken from a variety of international musical styles, including Afrobeat, soul, Eurodance, jazz, reggae, Latin, and Middle Eastern music. Mos Def titled “The Ecstatic” after one of his favorite novels—the 2002 Victor LaValle book of the same name—believing its titular phrase evoked his singular creative vision for the album.

With the first song of his 2014 masterpiece, Dark Comedy, Open Mike Eagle reintroduced himself by defining his style: “I’m bad at sarcasm so I work in absurdity.” On that album, Mike deconstructed our overstimulated and over-surveilled society with ease and caustic wit. But what do you do when the world warps and bends into a shape so absurd that it can no longer be exaggerated? Brick Body Kids Still Daydream is a searingly political record for systolic political times. It chronicles the life cycle of the Robert Taylor Homes, a housing project on the South side of Chicago that was demolished completely ten years ago. Families that had lived under the same roof for three generations were forced to scatter, condemned by bureaucrats and faceless cranes and public indifference. Mike Eagle brings the Robert Taylor Homes back to life--literally, with arms and eyes and a head like the dome of a stadium--and fights until the last brick is made to crumble. As always, Mike slips in and out of various grey areas; on the opener “legendary iron hood,” he raps, “you think it's all good, but it's really a gradient.” The nostalgia (“95 radios”) is a little bit painful, the triumph (“hymnal”) comes through painstaking, incremental work. Everything needs to be earned, even the radio signals that are picked up through tinfoil wrapped on children's hands. The thesis becomes fully formed on “brick body complex,” where the hook is a towering statement of identity: “Don't call me ‘nigga,’ or ‘rapper,’ my motherfucking name is Michael Eagle.” But this is not a departure from the man-as-building conceit--the flesh and blood and brick and mortar are inextricable.In case there was any ambiguity about the political and cultural forces that lead to the Robert Taylor Homes’ eventual destruction, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream ends with perhaps the most powerful song of Mike Eagle’s catalog to date. “my auntie’s building” is a tour de force. “They say America fights fair,” he raps. “But they won't demolish your timeshare.” This is the point: the decay and eventual destruction of public housing--and of the physical lives of Black Americans generally--has been normalized in a way that should be grotesquely absurd. “They blew up my auntie’s building / Put out her great-grandchildren / Who else in America deserves to have that feeling? / Where else in America will they blow up your village?”Production comes courtesy of Exile, Toy Light, Andrew Broder, Illingsworth, DJ Nobody, Kenny Segal, Caleb Stone, Lo-Phi, Elos, and Has-Lo, who produces and guests on “95 radios.” “hymnal” also features a superb turn from Sammus, who maintains the same rhyme scheme throughout her defiant verse. As grave as the album’s stakes are, it's still anchored by Mike Eagle’s irrepressible sense of humor. (His live comedy show, The New Negroes, is upcoming via Comedy Central.) “no selling” is a hilarious take on practiced indifference, and “TLDR” bridges the economic gap with withering wit: “If you was rich and ‘bout to be broke, I can coach you / ‘Cause I can show you how to kill a roach with a boat shoe.”Eagle has earned rave reviews in Pitchfork, the LA Weekly, and wherever brilliant, avant-garde rap is appreciated. Brick Body Kids Still Daydream is his most overtly political work to date, and puts to use all the dazzling technical skills he's perfected over more than a decade at the forefront of rap’s underground. In chaotic and increasingly fractured times, it has a few crucial things to bring to your attention.

Some people hate them. Apollo Brown & Planet Asia’s new collaboration album took inspiration from these polarizing fish and created a project that takes a certain palette to enjoy.Classic Hiphop meets minimalism and dusty vinyl on Anchovies. Cali Agents alum Planet Asia is as sharp as ever with his lyrical smithing. Apollo Brown’s style is evident behind the dust and grime of these smoky samples. The Detroit producer approached this album like a director would a movie. Apollo painstakingly laid out every detail of the project and knew what he wanted from the finished product. He knew that only one rapper could execute his vision. Enter Planet Asia. The West Coast legend was able to fit directly into the plan and bring his talents to the album, creating a perfect match.“This shit be so dirty. If you threw water at it, it’d turn to mud.”-Planet Asia

Limited edition CD!Back to the most requested project on Chopped Herring - the Natural Elements series!! L-Swift, Mr Voodoo, KA and on the boards beatmaker extraordinaire, Charlemagne? It took a lot of time to dig up the Lost Demos material. None of the group had any of the old tracks. Some of these joints appeared on the boys 1995 Def Jam Demo tape. These were sourced from unreleased DATs and hard-to-dig demo tapes. The CD contains 5 vocal tracks and 4 instrumentals.Before materializing as an official group, the Natural Elements were originally conceived as a group of solo artists brought together in 1993 under the tutelage of producer Charlemagne. This initial grouping, whose members were initially signed to Fortress Records, included members Mr. Voodoo, L-Swift, KA, G-Blass, Howie Smalls and the InTimidator. By 1995, however, membership slimmed to include only Mr. Voodoo, L-Swift and the newly-added A-Butta. The trio's countless appearances on the NYC freestyle and mixtape circuits culminated with a record deal on the Tommy Boy Black sublabel and the release of the single "2 Tons" in 1999. Although the highly-anticipated NE album was completed, problems with Tommy Boy shelved the project and the album never saw the light of day.

Hot on the heels of Dynamo Productions' great success, the debut Boca 45 Lp was delivered for Manchester's Grand Central Records to huge acclaim. Collaboration has always been an important part of Boca's DNA and along the way further collaborative projects continued to develop: "The BeeKeepers" (with Parker), "BocaWoody" (with 2 time world champion DJ Woody), "Malachai" (with singer Gee) on Domino Records - which was named Zane Lowes hottest record of the week!

Lyrically tough and musically nimble, Andy swings at you somewhere between the artful dodger and a heavyweight pugilist.The irresistably bouyant 'Here Comes Another One' opens by means of an elegant old jazz trumpet whose player states "rhythm is my business". Get the picture? It's a choppy, jazztastic journey. Cleverly underpinned by a gorgeous jazz piano, horns, sharp beats and aural treats, suddenly mashed up by a reggae toasting session on speed courtesy of Blabbermouf.'The Perfect Definition' has a heavier step and a more serious punch. Fresh and funky attitude meets a deeply earnest reverence towards microphone art, a theme echoed throughout the LP and cherisheddearly by Cooper.Two tracks that certainly roll with the punches.Out in November.

Nothing, however, in their respective discographies has sounded more organic and masterful than the combination of Ro and KT. “Every project that I’ve done he’s been a part of,” says Ro. “To be honest, he’s my favorite producer.” The chemistry they’ve been able to develop over the years is evident throughout Ro’s discography on tracks like “Leave Me Alone” taken from Octane & iLLite’s The Forgotten... Chosen and the Freeway featured “Forefeit” from Ro’s Glass Ceiling Project. It’s only right that the two have taken their time to create an organic piece of work unlike anything they’ve done before, set to debut this Fall on Fat Beats Records. “Leading up to this, my whole career, I intentionally didn’t show vulnerability. I didn’t want people to know about me,” Ro exclaims. RSXGLD is the lyrical maturation of Ro Spit while this group pushed 14KT to new creative levels sonically. “I’ve used Maschine for 3 years but I haven’t really come out with any projects making beats in this way. It was a totally new process for me,” KT notates. “Sonically, I’ve created in a way that I’ve never created before. It’s all different and out of my comfort zone.” This is a true, social experiment. This is music made from the soul that encompasses every aspect of the human experience. This is how you push beyond your limits.This is RSXGLD.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Released on Mello Music Group, “Resolution” is one of those timeless records. The first full-length from Mr. Lif & Akrobatik (The Perceptionists) in a dozen years reflects the struggles and near-death sagas that struck Mr. Lif and Akrobatik. During that span, Lif miraculously survived his tour bus plummeting over a cliff and bursting into flames. Akrobatik weathered a sudden aortic rupture and emergency open-heart surgery. The impact of those experiences forced the former Def Jux duo to contemplate fate, luck, and their own place within a world spinning out of control.But their ability to survive has allowed them to thrive. They’ve harnessed a radiant hard-won optimism that refuses to flinch from the evils of existence. From the album’s first track, “Early Mourning,” Akrobatik asserts that courage comes from within, but reflects on the millions of young black men sent to premature graves. He considers whether gang affiliation is inherent in their souls, or more likely, whether things would be different if these neighborhoods were well lit and effectively policed.If turmoil and inequity currently wrack the globe at record levels, Lif’s verses seem more prophetic than ever. His verses offer searing indictments of corporate and political corruption: corporations oppressing local farms, governmental duplicity in dealing with big pharmaceutical companies, and the crooked brutality of cops who get away with shooting unarmed black men.On “Hose Down,” the pair brilliantly intersperse news reports from the MLK-led Birmingham protests of 1963 with the internecine problems of the present—where a traffic stop can still lead to a funeral. It’s as poignant of a polemic as you’ll find, but blended with a danceable Caribbean lilt.With the Perceptionists, the personal is political and vice-versa. Akrobatik rhymes about his “desire to breathe in the sun before my skin dries out” but still refuses to be “the coward in a pretend hide out.” On “Lemme Find Out,” they kick ingeniously sinister dystopian horror raps about our grotesque addiction to technology. There are love songs over beats that sound like they could’ve been on Madvillainy, stories of cypher demolitions of would-be challengers, and dirty ass rhymes over dirty ass drums—as The Perceptionists sagely insist, that’s all the world really wants.It’s music from deep in the trenches, songs that confront the blitzkrieg of bad news but offer light at the end of the bombardment. If you listen closely, you can intuit a profound story of friendship and camaraderie between Lif and Akrobatik—lifelong friends trading bars with the chemistry of Tip and Phife, Andre and Big Boi, Erick and Parrish. They’re mortal men who made mistakes, gained experience, and obtained wisdom. This is “Resolution”.

As a multi-instrumentalist, producer, emcee & music educator, Thavius Beck is a man whose life revolves around audio and technology. With a focus on bass heavy rhythms, dark emotional melodies and twisted sample manipulation, Thavius has not only released numerous solo albums (under his own name, plus previous moniker Adlib), but he’s also collaborated with and remixed luminaries Saul Williams, Nine Inch Nails, The Mars Volta, Skylar Grey and Nas, to name a few.Eventually his love of music and technology lead to Ableton Live, where Thavius became a certified trainer of in 2009. He quickly became a world-renowned advocate for Ableton Live education, and took a brief hiatus from releasing albums to run electronic music workshops and explore teaching. In 2016, he left the cozy confines of Los Angeles and relocated to Brooklyn, NY. Reinvigorated by the city, plus inspired by frequent European tours with Saul, both offered Thavius meditative hours spent in solitary at hotels, airports & on trains writing new material. The result is an impassioned new self-produced project “Technol O.G.”, that finds Thavius expressing his true self as an artist & man. His much-anticipated 12 song album is a record full of raw & unfiltered truth revealed through his rhythmic vocal reflections and electronic production perfection. Released worldwide on Monday September 18th, 2017 on one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopic 12”” colored vinyl, housed in a variety of hand-screenprinted and collectible outer jackets featuring stunning art by Jon Ryan. Digital downloads include the bonus remix of lead single “Spectacular Vernacular” by Mono/Poly.

Limited edition of 300. Over the past few years, Houston emcee Anti-Lilly has experienced a lot of hardships. Stretches of serious depression combined with the monotony of a 9-to-5 lifestyle, temptations from the streets and betrayal from a close friend forced him into isolation. Using Phoniks jazzy soundscapes as a coping mechanism, Anti paints a vivid picture of the struggles he’s endured since we last heard from the duo on 2014’s “Stories From The Brass Section”. The album's 17 tracks are stitched together with voicemail’s the young Houston rhyme-spitter received from friends and family trying to reach him while he was shut out from the world. Through it all, Anti emerges from his experiences with a renewed optimism, letting the world know “It’s Nice Outside” despite all the pain and suffering he’s withstood. “Thank y'all. This is the only way I know how to get through it. I lost my way for a while, honestly I'm still tryna figure everything out. I’m learning that we all are, though. I done lost as much as I gained, but it was all necessary. This album is dedicated to everyone who feels like me. Thanks for being so patient with me. God Bless” - Anti-Lilly

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.
