Somepling
Cloudload EP
CD | 2012 | EU | Original (Still Muzik)
8,99 €*
Release:2012 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Chopping and slicing samples, MPC, beatstrumentals, classy, analog, soulful layers, hip hop music…Here are some of the keywords for Somepling’s new EP called « CloudLoad ». You’ll be invited to travel around those 6 tracks, on a jazzy journey, where everything is smooth and peaceful. Sometimes darker (« Sunday Suite », « Silentolium »), but always midtempo-ish cool-ish, it’s the work of a complete artist. Through those smokey joints, « CloudLoad » will leave you far away…you’ll go to a place where smoke-clouds equal music, and where communication turns into a poetic-indian-dance. We are very proud to make this release at stillMuzik… so we decided to make a limited edition CD, and also a few extra limited vinyl postcards for a beat souvenir to be sent (or not) to someone you appreciate. Because classy music needs classy objects, don’t you think?

Deli, The
Jazz Cat
CD | 2018 | US | Original (Cold Busted)
16,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Austin hip hop beatrepreneur The Deli made serious waves with previous Cold Busted album Vibes 3, featuring the song “Flowers.” This track shook up the Spotify world with over 14 million plays and inclusion on at least 500 playlists. Anticipation is strong for a follow-up from The Deli and, with his new album Jazz Cat, he delivers with gusto. Filled with the smoked-out, laid-back cut-and-paste rhythmology that The Deli is known for, Jazz Cat contains 15 enticing beat compositions. The title cut shows where he’s at, transmitting an old-is-new-again feel through scratchy snare snaps, loping piano chords, and faraway — both in time and place — city sounds. Other highlights include the dreamy lounge pressure of “Virgo Flip,” “Fractals” and its shimmering vibraphone atmospheres co-produced by Lungfulls, the ‘hip hop party happening down the street’ vibe of “Spring,” and the crucial, jazzy beat construction of “Going Home.” Dig in … wIth Jazz Cat, The Deli trips the night fantastic.

Release:2018 / JP – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited CD edition!French producer and beatmaker Lex (de Kalhex) announces his 4th instrumental album. “Cairn” is dropping May 18th on LP, CD & digital formats. The limited Japanese edition CD comes with an OBI strip, poster and extended liner notes by FK.The CD version also contains 2 bonus tracks featuring Inner Science (Masumi Nishimura) & Masanori Nozawa released by Rockwell Product Shop - Takumi Koizumi.“Lex (de Kalhex)'s new album realized the ideal of sampling art with densely constructed grooves from the gems that has been buried deeply in the crates. Keeping the spirit of Hip Hop, the unleashed vibe from his inner universe to the outer space bounces beyond any genres of music. This masterpiece will be a cairn for every artist.”— Kousuke Awane (sonimage-Lab, inc / Seeds And Ground)“I conceive each album as a continuation of the previous one, but also as an incentive to break with it.So far, each release was based on a journey I made and the inspiration and feelings it sparked within me. Each time I visit a new country — in case of "Cairn" it was my trip to Scandinavia — I dig for records and discover new landscapes with unique colors. All of this helps me to picture the music I’m looking for.Usually it starts with an analog photograph I take of that place. In succession to that I create sound that could tell my story of this picture. To me, the record cover is as important as the music. It doesn’t have to illustrate the album’s title but has to complete the sound experience by giving the listeners clues on how I understand it.A cairn is a heap of stones piled up as a memorial or as a landmark. I like the idea of a sculpture made from natural elements. And while the materials used are products of nature, a cairn is the result of human interaction in his/her environment. To me, this sums up what we are doing as artists. We com-pile elements that surround us to create something new, that hopefully people will refer to.”— Lex (de Kalhex)
D.Dahlinger - Exquisite Spirits
D.Dahlinger
Exquisite Spirits
CD | 2018 | US | Original (Cold Busted)
15,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Cold Busted presents Exquisite Spirits, the latest from D.Dahlinger, a self-described “Northern California-bred, Japan-based dusty dollar/yen bin loop digger.” The follow-up to 2016’s debut album Brisk Temps (and his appearance with Pigeondust on Cold Busted’s Only On Vinyl 2 compilation), Exquisite Spirits is another brilliant exercise in tough, boom-bap beats at meditative tempos and engaging sample source genre-clashes. D.Dahlinger’s influences are wide-ranging, with Paul’s Boutique and Paid In Full hotly tipped alongside psych-rock and shoegaze, as well as the attitudes of west coast skateboarding culture thrown in. A relocation to Japan also created noticeable inspiration, giving the music a wandering flavor that often feels like solemn exploration. A prime example of D.Dahlinger’s distinctive sound is the curiously titled “B,” which dreamily combines glistening harps, compressed vinyl noise, and lovely piano over a solid beat foundation. There’s also the pensive build of “Color Scheme 13,” with a gentle flute that deceptively calms the listener before the approaching sonic storm; the molasses intro of “Wind Back Up” which increases in tempo to reveal an intricate construction of samples and melody; and the deft trip hop thump of “Anyone’s Out There,” featuring layers of D.Dahlinger’s trademark hypnotic embellishments. Exquisite Spirits lives up its name, being both haunting and hard-to-ignore ... beats designed for the ages.

Onra - Nobody Has To Know
Onra
Nobody Has To Know
CD | 2018 | EU | Original (All City Dublin)
15,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Few artforms are as apt to describing the fervour and tumult of human emotions as music is. Songs transport us to real and imaginary places, living someone else's experiences as our own, connecting with thoughts and feelings through melodies, rhythm and words. As a producer working primarily with the tools of traditional Hip-Hop – samplers, records, synthesizers – Onra has distinguished himself over the past decade as one of the best of his generation, capable of creating vivid music that sparks the mind of the listener and brings them along to uniquely detailed spaces, both real and imagined. On “Nobody Has To Know”, his fifth album for All City Records, the versatile French producer created music that reflects on the various aspects of a secret relationship pulling from R&B,New Jack Swing and Funk to soundtrack the passions of attraction. Stylistically “Nobody Has To Know” picks up from the Future Funk style Onra originated on his 2010's “Long Distance” (and its 2012 companion EP “Deep In The Night” for Fool's Gold). Where those two releases mined the early and mid parts of the 1980s for ideas and references, the new album digs into late '80s and early '90s jams for smoother and richer sounds. Bolstering the record are two talented multi-instrumentalists, New Zealand's Lewis McCallum and Belgium's Pomrad, who bring touches of virtuosity to Onra's trademark smooth arrangements. The result is a record that, like its theme, oscillates between tender, torrid and tumultuous. Over its 13 tracks “Nobody Has To Know” details the ups and downs of a secret relationship, from the excitement of doing something forbidden to the aftermath of living out fantasies. On "Let Me Fantasize" a rolling bassline and sparkling melodies capture the excitement of what is possible, the mind wandering into the forbidden. "No Question" taps into New Jack Swing to act out desires that can't be suppressed, exuberant solos echoing dangerous feelings. With its hard drums and smooth horn solos, and chorus of "Freak" takes you to that place where you can do things you only dreamed about. Balancing this intensity are more introspective moments. "Not Long Ago" rolls out gentle synth solos and nostalgic samples to reflect on past relationships and the very human desire to have what you had or can no longer reach. Rich textures and a languid rhythm underpin the reflective mood of "Nothing To Lose," as you wonder what could go wrong – it's a fine line after all. The fantasizing, excitement and danger of fatal attraction are all reflected through the prism of the music. With “Nobody Has To Know” Onra deftly evolves the style he first began to explore a decade ago with his unique touch, re-affirming a unique sound rooted in warmth and setting the mood for some late-night escapades.

Emapea
Zoning Out Volume 1
CD | 2018 | US | Original (Cold Busted)
16,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Emapea, the renowned beat-maker from Poland, burst upon the scene with multiple compilation appearances on Cold Busted, an inclusion on Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz 8, and his stunning debut album Seeds, Roots & Fruits. Fans and headz worldwide have been clamoring for a follow-up, but all Emapea wanted to do was just 'zone out.' And that's what happened, with the release of Emapea's twenty song album Zoning Out, Volume 1. Emapea's cuts are meant for the listener to get lost in – but they're not only for chilling, or when deep in thought, but also for getting in that crucial head-nod zone, like when the DJ drops the dopest beat. Expertly crafted and sequenced, the album presents a boom-bap journey that's dreamy and spacey while remaining tough and jazzy. "Check It Out" exemplifies the mood with its smooth drums, chiming keys, subtle sax riffs, and hip hop shout-outs. The vibe expands on "Motion", adding an exotic, worldly flavor to the seductively loping rhythm. And "Classy" features a smokey saloon piano melody that cruises smugly out of jeep-beat speakers. This track was recently featured on a limited postcard record, mailed surreptitiously to lucky Emapea supporters. Zoning Out, Volume 1 defines Emapea as an artist to watch on the international beat scene. Pay attention as Volume 2 will be continuing the journey in later months.

Genre:Hip Hop
2+ years after the Cold Busted release date this classic gets Remastered and Released for the first time on Double 12 Inch Vinyl, Cassette Tape and 24bit Download plus a new Compact Disc version.Esbe is an multi-genre music producer from Los Angeles, California. He is known for his atmospheric instrumental production which incorporates sound elements from extensive use of jazz and soul samples. His latest release, Bloomsday, is a collection of 19 essential instrumentals."If you were to grab tracks at random from Bloomsday, you might not have guessed that those songs came from the same album. However, when you listen to the album in the way that it was arranged, it will all start to make sense, and you can start to hear how Esbe connects the dots from one song to the next. Esbe draws from a lot of different styles and influences, whether it be soul, hard bop, cool jazz, bossa nova, boom bap, down tempo, jungle, house, or drum and bass, just to name a few. This might sound like he’s unfocused or trying to do too much with his music, but Esbe has a good sense for not overcrowding his individual tracks. Each song might bring in a couple of different elements, but he keeps his arrangements clean, with just the right amount of interesting samples to build from, and the patience to let them unfold at a steady pace, without forcing anything. There are plenty of obscure samples that you won’t place, but he also manages to pick a few key spots to drop some well-known samples, but then re-purposes them in interesting ways in which to give them new life.Bloomsday will take more than one listen to really sink in, but it will eventually sneak up on you and reveal its cleverness in really subtle and interesting ways. Esbe has a large musical vocabulary, but he also knows when to pick his spots, piling it on thick at key moments, and backing away at others, giving the listener space to breath and soak in all the different musical ideas floating around here." - scratchedvinyl.com

Cold Busted has navigated the smooth seas to unearth Sailing, the new album from Moroccan guitarist and beat-flinger saib. The Casablanca-based producer has steered his sound into warmer waters. Mixing tempered hip hop beats with jazzy vibes and a lounge sensibility, saib. touches on a style that's both chill and opulent. The album's opener, "Archipelago," sets the scene with gentle piano, swirling strings, and beachside sounds that would make Martin Denny proud. "Tropics" pushes the agenda further, featuring delightful vibraphone lines, stand-up bass, and boom bap beats, providing the perfect soundtrack for poolside cocktails. The sleepy crooning of "Blue Memories," the future-retro sing-a-long of "Mermaid Dreams," and the guitar/vibes interplay of "Pastel" provide other highlights. Sailing's twelve songs show saib. as an artist capable of bringing a sunny climate to any listening environment.

Glen Porter realizes these memory movies with a stunning mixture of swirling psychedelia, springy electronic rhythms, and charred western guitar riffs. Recorded over the last few years in Huntington Beach, California, Mr. Vampire and The Deadly Walkers also reveals a strong visual element courtesy of collaborator Lucien Shapiro who designed the masks worn by the cryptic inhabitants of the album cover.

Onra - Chinoiseries Part 3
Onra
Chinoiseries Part 3
CD | 2017 | US | Original (All City Dublin)
14,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Almost 10 years have passed since Onra arrived with the charmingly eccentric Chinoiseries LP. 32 Hip-Hop beats formed the sample-based project - dusty Chinese vinyl hissing and crackling throughout – resulting in an intriguing and spontaneous mix of the producers interest in exploring a newly-discovered style of Music with his love for classic Hip-Hop production. Using the style of analogue MPC production combined with the somewhat restrictive record sampling of strictly Chinese Music records, he has been able to be creative over three volumes, an amount of 100 instrumentals, despite the challenge of finding more obviously standout samples in Chinese music. The Chinoiseries projects are the type of albums that invites the listener to play it from beginning to end, in order to really enjoy the trip and appreciate the variety of rhythms and textures spread over those 32 short instrumentals. In that way, “Pt.3” is no different to its predecessors, but the originality of the samples, the curious harmonies and the odd-drum patterns still makes the album sounds as fresh as the first one. Onra finishes this epic trilogy with class as a result of extended record digging across the Far East and the producer's own development over the preceding 10 years. As a producer who has released records inspired by 80's Funk, 90's Hip-Hop and R'n'B, Electronic and even a Spiritual Jazz project, “Pt. 3” brings this stylised set to a close. Normally a man of few words, Onra has his own take on the three Volumes: I see the first Chinoiseries as a trip, inspired by my own first travel to Asia, each beat representing one particular moment of the journey, the second one, more like a soundtrack to a movie, each beat representing a different scene, and the third one, I tried to create a dark, smoky and mysterious cinematic atmosphere so you could create your own movie in your head. For this last episode, I just really wanted to have fun with this type of material for the very last time. I dug deeper than ever and I have tried to do as many different rhythm patterns as possible, from various influences like Hip-Hop (from different eras), to Bossa to Indian Music to Psych Rock, Soul, etc. and try to portray a different image of Chinese Music.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
According to Merriam-Webster, "Vignettes" means, a short descriptive literary sketch/brief incident or scene (as in a play or movie). The album is aptly titled where 15 musical scenes, each with their own unique settings, are stitched harmoniously together to provide a universal message to the audience in which they use the gift of their own interpretation. At just over 2 hours long, the listener is given an unfiltered front row performance into the heart, mind and soul of the the artist. This latest effort from Damu the Fudgemunk is of typical and unorthodox proportions. Musically, it's what you should expect from the man who brought you the How it Should Sound franchise, Supply for Demand and The Spur Momento Trailer. Intellectually, it's his most vulnerable piece of work to date. Hoping to challenge and inspire the listener through a musical narrative, it's content is open ended. Any resulting opinion that provokes thinking is encouraged given the message in this ""Vignettes"" album. Even the art direction is intentionally abstract and undefined to welcome the attention of all people. The album is completely instrumental except for “Openings,” the lone vocal track which features Raw Poetic. Though the word vignettes may refer to something brief, Damu the Fudgemunk's new album ""Vignettes"" has a long future ahead for years to come.

Genre:Hip Hop
Introducing Ideaz, two skilled beat-makers discovered by Cold Busted, hailing from within the funky heart of Russia. Marat and Nicolay make their Ideaz debut with “Motion Capture”, a fantastic fifteen track album that showcases the laid-back, blunted flavor of the duo’s rhythmic constructions. Jazzy samples, vinyl pops, and crafty scratches abound as the album speaks the universal language of the instrumental hip hop head-nod. “Every Day” hypnotizes with its funky handclap stomp, quick guitar riffs, and fleeting splashes of vocal. A gentle approach is revealed on “Blossom Fell”, featuring a dreamy female vocal hook, slowly tremolo’ed electric piano chords, and an overall air of wistfulness. “Lines” brings Ideaz into futuristic funk territory as its loping cut-up beat, abstract synth melodies, and ascending bass line imagine a robot dance-off on a year 2054 episode of Soul Train. Those are just a few of the highlights to be found on “Motion Capture”.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Funky Destination is an exciting retro-styled funk project formed by Vladimir Sivc, also known as Mr. Louie. Hailing from the town of Osijek in eastern Croatia, early on Louie honed his guitar skills and started developing the funk foundation that would guide his sound. A move across Croatia to near the Adriatic Sea introduced Louie to new friends and encounters with turntables and DJ’ing. All of this came together to create Funky Destination, a full-on ‘party time’ project fusing live, organic instrumentation alongside classic-sounding beats, sending the dance floor into a nostalgic frenzy. “Funkadelic Stereo Adventures” is the latest Funky Destination album for Cold Busted and it fulfills on the evocative title’s promise. The set includes ten blazing tunes that bubble with choppy, wah-wah guitar, swinging drums and percussion, delicious horns and bass lines, and, occasionally, stirring vocals of the soulful persuasion. The album’s opener, “The Ocean Of My Mind”, is a prime example … lovely island-influenced vocals, disco strings, latin-influenced horns, and booming drums all combine for some serious heat. Other highlights include the ’70s soundtrack-worthy “Sweet Of Love”, the hip hop flavor of “The Game Of Shades”, and the gritty high speed chase of “Where Are The Blues Brothers”. Groove no further … you’ve reached your destination.

Body Wash
CD | 2016 | US | Original (Stones Throw)
14,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Mndsgn (born Ringgo Ancheta) grew up in south New Jersey, raised with Gospel music at church and B-Boy culture at home. Experimenting with beat-making, he befriended fellow producer Knxwledge and the two formed the influential Klipmode collective (along with Devonwho and Suzi Analogue). Mndsgn's music flourished when he moved to Los Angeles, catching the attention of Stones Throw, who released Yawn Zen in 2014, an LP of introspective and mostly instrumental beat creations, punctuated by vocal cuts. Body Wash is his second album for Stones Throw, a full set of realised songs that were only hinted at on Yawn Zen. Influences here include the likes of early SOLAR records material, Leon Sylvers III, Kashif, and Dave Grusin. These artists, Mndsgn says, "embodied that potent feeling in the early 80s boogie/funk/soul/jazz/fusion wave." He adds, "I was also digging back into some early 90s R&B sounds and started really imagining what it would be like if I had mashed the two eras together." He explains Body Wash as "a soul record that plays with nostalgic elements in a very dynamic & positive way. Think about it as a box of crayons for you to draw emotions with."The album was built around a backstory, a loose narrative thread through which he could filter his unformed ideas. In the narrative, a homeless man encounters a mysterious woman who gives him shelter. She instructs him to bathe with a very peculiar body wash. As he soaks and sinks deeper in a thick lather of this unknown solution, the man finds himself transported to an alternate dimension. Mndsgn describes the story as a vessel "that would allow me to speak on topics that were universally relatable… The story actually became a true outlet for me to address worldly issues with Self." The resulting album also represents a dynamic step forward in songwriting. Without explicitly relating its plot or characters, the album as a whole turns on the story's key theme, the psychedelic, transformative power of love.

Kankick proves here he deserves to be name-checked alongside more famous fellow ‘Nard-bred beatmaker brothers MADLIB and OHNO. Indeed he is closely associated with the members of Lootpack, and as part of the LIKWIT CREW family (Alkoholiks, Madlib, Lootpack, Defari, King Tee, others) has several major-label production credits to his name. This mostly instrumental collection closely echoes Madlib’s successful “”Medicine Show” series, heavily sample-based with a strong weed vibe, culled from his 20+years of musical output on a variety of labels including Stones Throw, Groove Attack, Ramp, Poo-Bah and Up Above. This collection has as much in common with the current LA Beat Scene (Gaslamp Killer, Exile, Low End Theory, Tokimonsta, Nosaj Thing) as it does with the fondly-recalled “backpack” hip hop movement of the late 1990s/early 2000s (J Dilla, DITC, Beatminerz, Lyricist Lounge). MCs crop up on only a handful of the 20+ cuts here, providing a “weededed” accent to a laid back, blunted, jazzy ride.

‘Kellion’ is the story of a young boy who was born into a mysterious world he explores with his curious eyes, ears and hands. Every new experience lets him grow as a person and also expands his knowledge of the world that surrounds him. His young mind is sometimes blurrying the lines between imagination and reality, dreaming and being awake, reality and fantasy. Making sense of this world in its very own unique way, his world is filled with fantastic and surreal magical creatures and quirky characters.Over the course of the ten songs many different little adventures unfold and await the young boy, slowly building his character while he explores nature in all its varieties and learns to appreciate it. He lives through new emotions and gets to learn about his own feelings during the process. The title track ‘Kellion’ represents the very inner world of the kid – it is his cocoon where he can always return to and be safe after his journeys and adventures.„I was trying to live his life with him together and feel what he felt. I tried to understand and recollect what it feels like as a little boy walking around in this big world. I attempted to see the world through his eyes, to experience his fears and happiness and in doing that, just helping him to be a kid.“ – Long Arm‘Kellion’ is the long awaited sophomore full length album by Long Arm and will come out worldwide on double vinyl in a beautiful gatefold cover as well as on CD and cassette tape, all including download codes.

The Betty Ford Boys are ready to retox! "Retox" is the second album by the Austro-German producer super group consisting of Suff Daddy, Dexter and Brenk Sinatra. The album was recorded at The Fisherhaus, a small timber cottage somewhere in Bavaria earlier this year. The Betty Ford Boys moved their home-studios from Berlin, Stuttgart and Vienna into the small shack and let loose. If you compare "Retox" to the 21st century G-Funk of their debut album "Leaders Of The Brew School", one can say that the Betty Ford Boys are reporting from the dark side of the moon this time. Low-tuned and bass-heavy stoner beats are sitting next to moog-driven 808 workouts and you never know what's comig next. If "Retox" follows a formula then the formula is that there is no formula. "Retox" is simply one of the most - if not the most - complete instrumental hip-hop albums of 2014. Period!

Release:2014 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
Cuthead got known to the wider public via his releases on Uncanny Valley but his roots reach way back before the label's start. There was a time when Cuthead and his brothers from another mother threw wild parties at abandoned industrial locations or in the woods around Dresden. The crew, which was known as Kunst:stoff Breakz, also established a label where Cuthead released two albums and one EP as free downloads between 2006 and 2010. Over the years the calls for vinyl versions of those early joints were getting louder and so Uncanny Valley decided to give the best tracks from that era a new life on physical sound carriers and start the ''Total Sellout''. Through refinement and rearrangement 51 tracks were boiled down to a selection of 18 and ended up as an album full of catchy bass lines, heavy beats and sampling excesses. Among the tracks are party starters like the strings-infiltrated ''Scissorhands'', ''The Poncho'' or the ever devastating ''Iron Lung'' which still kicks like Dubstep has never faded. Since Cuthead has always been heavily influenced by Rap music, there are of course lots of great Hip Hop beats on ''Total Sellout''. Either in the form of funky sample studies like ''Painquilizer'' and ''VibraSkit'' or in true fashion with Raps by crew member Alibi on ''Hidden Track''. Also included on the album are ''Rock My Soul'' and ''All Night Long'', some early examples of Cuthead's knack for well tempered and super catchy House tracks, while the double-bass driven ''Rythmus '78'' shows another jazzy side of him. Once again, the artwork was conceived and designed by Till Hohmann who already did a brilliant job on last year's ''Everlasting Sunday''.

Darüber hinaus produziert das musikalische Multitalent D-Fekt auch einen Teil der Beats für sich und seinen Bandkollegen Grasime. Mit "Schattenseite" veröffentlicht er nun sein erstes Instrumental-Album auf 58Beats und zeigt verschiedene Facetten seiner Songs – mal melodiös, soft, chillig, treibend, fast poetisch, manchmal melancholisch, aber immer mit einer positiven Grundstimmung fernab der ausgetretenen Pfade des Mainstream. Während andere Menschen schlafen, nutzt D-Fekt die Ruhe der Nacht für kreatives Schaffen: Viele Songs sind so in den letzten 3 Jahren entstanden, von denen 15 Stücke für das Album "Schattenseite" selektiert wurden. Weltraumklänge, zerstörerische Synthiemelodien, erdige pumpende Drumsounds, knarzige Bässe und soulig, jazzige Flächen finden hier auf „Schattenseite“ zusammen.

Mndsgn’s psychedelic beats have already won him fans such as Danny Brown, who snapped him up to produce a track the lead track for his Classic Drug Referencesrelease and BBC Radio 1’s Benji B. Dazed & Confused described him as “one of the west coast’s finest beat-smiths… each track is a patchwork of lush electronic samples blended together to create warm, sun-drenched little charmers.” On Yawn Zen, his debut for Stones Throw, Mndsgn has carved himself an unusually calm-sounding place in the Los Angeles beat scene. The influence of labelmates Madlib and J Dilla on this on this collection of laid-back beats is never far off, but Yawn Zen has a psychedelic, jazzy flavour that equally recalls the likes of Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi and Samiyam.

There are few musicians – let alone beat–makers - in the world whose output in its raw form provides his listener with a full on musical experience before anything is added. Madlib is such a talent. Hip hop is his canvas, but he creates the most wondrous things with it. Before a microphone is switched on, before a rhyme even uttered, a Madlib beat stands alone as a complete thing.Since the issue of the collaborative album with rapper Freddie Gibbs -Piñata, already being hailed as contender for rap album of the year - we’ve been asked countless times to issue the beats Madlib created for theproject as instrumentals. And we've conceded. Piñata put Gibbs in thespotlight, one that a growing audience is finally acknowledging that hedeserves. On Piñata Beats, though, it’s Madlib, quietly spinning on the center stage. Through seventeen cuts of arcane film snippets, dusted funk and soul, psych and prog rock musical diversions, Madlib proves to live up to what Gibbs once said of him: “Madlib quite simply, is music.”

Meticulously compiled by the man himself, Drum Machines & VHS Dreams is the very first ‘Best Of’ Aim collection.“These are the tracks I still listen to now and that have best stood the test of time,” says Aim. “The selection came together pretty quick but finalising the sequence took a fair few CDRs and long car rides to nowhere. Every time I added or moved something I had to listen through from start to finish to make sure the album flowed and worked as a self-contained whole. My memories of growing up in the late 70s, early 80s are colourful and sun-kissed. There was a sense of openness and optimism and it seemed that most of what was cool was either independent, or invented and driven by kids - BMX, skateboarding, arcade games, horror movies… I watched every horror film I could get my hands on, renting VHS tapes from local corner stores and saving up my pocket money to buy Fangoria magazine every month. These times are still a major influence on my music, they’re an endless source of inspiration, and I wanted the title of this album to reflect that.” (Aim, February 2014)
