Limitierte Auflage von 750 Stück auf goldfarbenem Vinyl inkl. aller Instrumentals. Das Gatefold-Sleeve hat einen speziellen Goldfolien-Druck innen und außen und macht richtig was her!Alle guten Dinge sind Gold. Das Berliner Duo T9 schickt mit „Plastik aus Gold“ ihr bereits drittes Album ins Rennen. Wobei auch dieses, wie alle anderen davor, nur das Ergebnis eines weiteren Urlaubs ist. Ein weiteres Schmuckstück, das nur ein weiteres Prequel eines darauf folgenden Albums ist. Torky Tork und Doz9 sind halt schmucke Dudes. Und mindestens genauso produktiv. Soll der Hype ruhig Hype sein. Die Beiden verschränken sich nicht, aber wollen auch nicht mitspielen. Sie wollen nur ihr Ding machen und spielen einfach alleine:Mit Hilfe von Sonne Ra, Döll und Karate Andi glänzt Plastik aus Gold auf 12 Anspiel- Stationen. Wohin die Reise diesmal ging, ist allerdings nicht bekannt. Bekannt ist, dass T9#1 in einem uckermärker Wald aufgenommen wurde und das Cover einen kalifornischen Strand zeigt. Bekannt ist auch, dass T9#2 in Riffa aufgenommen wurde und das Cover den Fuße des Teides zeigt. T9#3 zeigt eine U-Bahn Impression aus dem asiatischen Raum - demzufolge könnte des Album in Japan entstanden sein. Genauso gut aber auch im versifften Hinterzimmer des Spätis um die Ecke, oder auf Rügen. Der Superstar-Fotograf Robert Winter war jedenfalls wieder mit dabei.„Plastik aus Gold“ glänzt! Konzentrieren Sie sich bitte! Es ist völlig egal, wo die Beiden waren. T9 glänzt, nein, T9 scheint mit #3 so sehr, dass manch echtes Gold, Plastik zu sein scheint, das nur noch schamvoll schimmert. Verdauen Sie das bitte!Wenn Torky Tork sein Waffenarsenal bemüht, geht er dabei so stilsicher wie unkonventionell vor und kann die stetige Neugier von Doz9 genauso bedienen wie seinen 80er-Jahre-Fetisch. Dabei durchgraben sich Torky's Produktionen tief in den Hinterkopf und hinterlassen einen khaki-braunen Fleck an der Wand, bevor sie wieder zurück kommen. Geschwindigkeiten spielen für Doz9 keine Rolle. Versuchen Sie das nachzuvollziehen! Dass er seinen Status als Schwarz-Gurt, nicht seinem Bast-blondem wallenden Haar zu verdanken hat, beweist der Schönste Mann im Raum auf „Plastik Aus Gold“ mit gewohntem Witz und virtuoser Vielfalt. Wir reden hier von einem ausdefiniertem und unverwechselbarem Soundbild, das auf die rückbesinnliche Lyrik eines echten Könners trifft.Zusammen erzeugen die Beiden eine düstere Atmosphäre mit dunklen, tropfenden Gassen, durch die sich der Rezipient seinen Weg bahnt. Dasser auf dem richtigen Weg ist, muss er an hier und da liebevoll platzierten Hinweisen erkennen - richtig sicher sein, kann er dabei nie. Aber am Ende wartet ein Topf voll Gold.

Zugezogen Maskulin machen neue Ansagen für Alle Gegen Alle. Die Platte kommt auf rosa Vinyl mit CD.„Alle gegen Alle“ von Zugezogen Maskulin ist das stille Statement einer wütenden Band. Auf Beats, die überwiegend von Silkersoft produziert wurden, knüpfen sie nahtlos an ihr Debütalbum „Alles brennt an“ und machen trotzdem alles anders. „Alle gegen Alle“ ist ein krachendes Album einer Band, die sich zurückgezogen hat, in die dunklen Kammern der eigenen Vergangenheit und nicht wegschaut, wenn sie an die eigenen Untiefen herantritt und so entstand, unter der Regie von Markus Ganter, der als Executive Producer in Erscheinung trat, ein Album wie eine Zugfahrt durch ein Land, in dem man vor Jahren schon einmal gewesen ist. Eine Zugfahrt hinein in die Welt aus Glasfassaden und Beton, zurück auf den Bolzplatz und ins Kinderzimmer zwischen Bong und Hansa-Schal, dorthin ins Moor zwischen Reetgedeckten Häusern und dem roten Bonanzarad, wo man früher einmal zuhause war und heute nicht mehr zuhause sein kann, weil man in der Zwischenzeit den Bordstein und die Skyline gesehen hat. Nicolai Potthoff (Ex-Tomte) wiederum liefert mit seinen Synthi-Flächen auf „Steine und Draht“, den Hintergrund für eine Reise in die Psyche einer Nation und wieder zurück, während Kenji bei „der müde Tod“ ein zeitloses Glockenspiel hervorgezaubert hat, zu dem dich ein jeder Tod fest bei den Händen packen würde, um dich zum Tanzen zu zwingen. Seltsam zeitlos wirkt dieses Album von Zugezogen Maskulin. Seltsam gut ist es geworden.

Limited edition of 500 copies on colored vinyl!“Time Being”, originally released in 2003, was the first full-length CYNE LP, following a series of 12” singles for Beta Bodega’s imprint Botanica Del Jibaro. This Project Mooncircle reissue marks the first time that this long out-of-print album has been released on vinyl. This deluxe edition includes a remaster of the original “Time Being” album, previously released singles, instrumentals, and two previously unreleased bonus tracks (“Plain English” and “The Word”), both recorded during the “Time Being” sessions.CYNE’s “Time Being” lineup consisted of MC’s Cise Star and Akin Yai, and producers Speck and Enoch. The four teamed up in Gainesville, Florida in 2001 and recorded “African Elephants”, which was quickly released as a 12” and set the trajectory for the group’s course. “Time Being” was created over the next year and reflects the musical and political environment of the time. Sonically the album showcases a synthesis of obscure samples filtered through the eclectic influences of Speck and Enoch, while Cise Star and Akin Yai’s lyrics cover a wide range, from conceptual, introspective, and spiritual ideas to the anxieties of post-9/11 xenophobia and being a black youth in America.CYNE has continued to release music for more than 15 years, including projects for domestic and international labels such as Project: Mooncircle, Botanica Del Jibaro, P-Vine, Home Tapes, and City Centre Offices. Although the group’s lineup has changed for recent projects, all four members continue to work together, creating a reputation as artists that stay true to the lyrical power and gritty cut and paste aesthetic of classic Hip Hop while managing to explore new sonic territory.Both CYNE and Akin Yai released new material in 2017; CYNE recently announced the second volume of their “Wasteland” beat tape series, while Akin Yai’s new album “Romantica”, primarily produced by Speck and Enoch, was released in April of 2017.“Time Being” is now available on vinyl for the first time. The exclusive remastered deluxe set comes out worldwide on limited green triple vinyl and digital.

Fueled by today's lack of appreciation and the decline in the art of the lyricist, Hex One's latest album 'Words Worth a Thousand Pictures' aims to take a stand for those who are truly masters of their craft. Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music. Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable. The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip-hop's musical landscape today. His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

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

„Sieh‘ mich an Ich hab‘ nichts außer dich auf dem Gewissen“ („Vibe oder Werbung“)Die Sequel EP des Negromans wurde ursprünglich als Songcollage aus Outtakes der 2016 erschienen Debutplatte „Negroman“ konzipiert, verselbstständigte sich jedoch schnell in eigener Soundästhetik und im Sog hin zur Moderne. Im immer ausgereifteren Spiel in den Produktionen des jungen und schönen Negromans, sowie in den von JÓSHA eingebrachten Instrumentalen auf „Block“ und „Nichtssagend“ werden die Ausführungen des Protagonisten in flächige, neon- scheinende Atmosphären gehüllt, während die darunter liegenden minimalistischen Drumarrangements durch den angenehmen Singsang der Strophen führen. Der Negroman hatte die Ohren weit auf nach links und rechts. Lediglich mit „Flaschenöffner“ und „Pool‘s closed“ werden hier auf Knowsum Beats zwei klassische luk&fil’sche Gassenhauer geliefert. Editiert wurde der Song „Schlüsselloch“ vom Album „Negroman“, der um Anthony Drawns hallendes Saxophonspiel und Luntes wortgewaltigen Vers erweitert wurde.Dass der Negroman in seinen Strophen weit über gewohntes Rapvokabular hinausschießt und dem Hörer unter Umständen auch ein zweites Hören abzuverlangen weiß ist nichts Neues. Was sich hier jedoch gewaltig verschoben hat sind die soundästhetischen Grenzen in denen diese stattfinden. Die elementaren Sahnestücke des Hip Hops der neuen Generation werden vom Negroman dezent und ausgewählt in die eigene Blase aufgenommen. Mit Beatexperimenten, Gesangs -und Autotunepassagen, liefert der Negroman mit der „Sequel EP“ die bis dato zeitgenössischste Sichtexot Platte.Kreativ, unvorhersehbar und mit tödlicher Geschmackssicherheit.Coverfoto: Jannis Szeder

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.

Limited edition of 200 copies on purple vinyl!In 2017, we’ve only caught a few glimpses of what Ivan has been working on, namely the soulful Kaytranada x Kiefer produced loosie “Also” and the jazzy MNDSGN produced single “Young Eye”. As it turns out, these two cuts are a good indication as to what the Oslo based artist has in store for us with his next LP release. On November 10h of this year, Ave presents his sophomore LP “Every Eye”. “Every Eye”, with its symbiosis of different producers, musicians and vocal styles puts Ivan Ave in his own lane. Leaving behind the sample heavy sound he’s gained recognition with, Ivan embarks on his first musical journey free of chopped up jazz, soul and funk records. But it would be an understatement to say that “Every Eye” still has jazz, soul and funk for days. Enlisting musical homies like Fredfades, MNDSGN, DJ Harrison, Kiefer, Kaytranada and Dâm- Funk on the production side, Ivan carves out his path as an ever-growing MC and singer.

Princess Nokia – aka New York rapper Destiny Frasqueri – has been releasing music via Youtube and Soundcloud since she was in High School, and slowly bubbling up on the internet, garnering a rabid fanbase.

She is not only a brilliant rapper & lyricist but a feminist icon who is unapologetically herself, and aligns equally with the values of punk rock and riot grrl, ‘90s R&B, and the best of forward-thinking hip-hop. This is powerful, passionate, outspoken, vibrant modern music with deep roots in both NYC and rap history.1992 Deluxe will be released via Rough Trade and is her first ever physical album; boasting 8 additional brand new songs - her first music since 2016.

At last, Atmosphere fans can own the Overcast! LP on vinyl. Rhymesayers Entertainment has announced a vinyl release of the group’s debut album in celebration of its 20th anniversary.While the Overcast! EP did drop on vinyl, the full-length project has never been released on the format. That all changes on October 27 with the arrival of a remastered version of the group’s inaugural album, their one and only featuring former member Spawn.Slug and Ant never imagined they would be in a position where their album’s anniversary would even be a big deal. Now that it is, Atmosphere (and Rhymesayers) are doing it with style. Non-vinyl collectors might want to pick up a copy because three previously unreleased songs from the original Overcast! sessions have been added to the LP.Slug: “Our whole lives, we just thought we would be these local dudes putting out four-track cassettes,” Slug explained. “We didn’t think it would get any exposure outside of the Twin Cities. And so we never looked back. Once it started gaining that exposure, we just started putting out more music and tried to hit the road.“And then we never thought, ‘Hey, let’s do a full-length version of the album’ [on vinyl] until last year. It took up more than two pieces of vinyl because back then people’s records were just too long. So, we decided to throw some extra pieces on the vinyl: three songs which were recorded for Overcast! but got cut. A song called “Broken Rewind Button,” which has me, Spawn and Beyond on it; “Bus Benches” and a song called “Pea King.”

Reguläre LP ohne Instrumentals auf schwarzem Vinyl.Alle guten Dinge sind Gold. Das Berliner Duo T9 schickt mit „Plastik aus Gold“ ihr bereits drittes Album ins Rennen. Wobei auch dieses, wie alle anderen davor, nur das Ergebnis eines weiteren Urlaubs ist. Ein weiteres Schmuckstück, das nur ein weiteres Prequel eines darauf folgenden Albums ist. Torky Tork und Doz9 sind halt schmucke Dudes. Und mindestens genauso produktiv. Soll der Hype ruhig Hype sein. Die Beiden verschränken sich nicht, aber wollen auch nicht mitspielen. Sie wollen nur ihr Ding machen und spielen einfach alleine:Mit Hilfe von Sonne Ra, Döll und Karate Andi glänzt Plastik aus Gold auf 12 Anspiel- Stationen. Wohin die Reise diesmal ging, ist allerdings nicht bekannt. Bekannt ist, dass T9#1 in einem uckermärker Wald aufgenommen wurde und das Cover einen kalifornischen Strand zeigt. Bekannt ist auch, dass T9#2 in Riffa aufgenommen wurde und das Cover den Fuße des Teides zeigt. T9#3 zeigt eine U-Bahn Impression aus dem asiatischen Raum - demzufolge könnte des Album in Japan entstanden sein. Genauso gut aber auch im versifften Hinterzimmer des Spätis um die Ecke, oder auf Rügen. Der Superstar-Fotograf Robert Winter war jedenfalls wieder mit dabei.„Plastik aus Gold“ glänzt! Konzentrieren Sie sich bitte! Es ist völlig egal, wo die Beiden waren. T9 glänzt, nein, T9 scheint mit #3 so sehr, dass manch echtes Gold, Plastik zu sein scheint, das nur noch schamvoll schimmert. Verdauen Sie das bitte!Wenn Torky Tork sein Waffenarsenal bemüht, geht er dabei so stilsicher wie unkonventionell vor und kann die stetige Neugier von Doz9 genauso bedienen wie seinen 80er-Jahre-Fetisch. Dabei durchgraben sich Torky's Produktionen tief in den Hinterkopf und hinterlassen einen khaki-braunen Fleck an der Wand, bevor sie wieder zurück kommen. Geschwindigkeiten spielen für Doz9 keine Rolle. Versuchen Sie das nachzuvollziehen! Dass er seinen Status als Schwarz-Gurt, nicht seinem Bast-blondem wallenden Haar zu verdanken hat, beweist der Schönste Mann im Raum auf „Plastik Aus Gold“ mit gewohntem Witz und virtuoser Vielfalt. Wir reden hier von einem ausdefiniertem und unverwechselbarem Soundbild, das auf die rückbesinnliche Lyrik eines echten Könners trifft.Zusammen erzeugen die Beiden eine düstere Atmosphäre mit dunklen, tropfenden Gassen, durch die sich der Rezipient seinen Weg bahnt. Dasser auf dem richtigen Weg ist, muss er an hier und da liebevoll platzierten Hinweisen erkennen - richtig sicher sein, kann er dabei nie. Aber am Ende wartet ein Topf voll Gold.

We are very excited to present the new collabo release between Cosmic Compostions and hhv.de: Jitwam's selftitled album "ज़ितम सिहँ".Born in Assam, Gauhati, in Northeast India, but currently based in New York’s storied borough of Brooklyn, Jitwam spent his formative years in New Zealand and Australia, before living in monasteries in Thailand, orphanages in South Africa, and washed out apartments in London. Of everywhere and nowhere, his music draws influence from a litany of iconoclasts including, but not limited to RD Burman, Moondog, The Velvet Underground, Yayoi Kusama, Jay Electronica, Jay Dilla, Moodymann, Leon Thomas, Madlib and Asha Bhosle.Across “िज़तम िसहँ (selftitled)“, he utilizes knowledge acquired through years spent digging through dusty crates, and talents honed as a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocalist. A series of stumbling, jazz/soul-rooted beat sculptures, each buried beneath a haze of fuzzy psychedelia, broken microphone blues, and articulated through a freestyled process he describes as “first thought, best thought”, “िज़तम िसहँ (selftitled)“ solidifies Jitwam's spot as a major emerging talent.Recalling the fourth world dreamscapes explored by oddball songwriters like Connan Mockasin, Clarence Clarity, Jai Paul, Silicon, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, it represents a time of transition and remembrance for Jitwam, while still fulfilling the core qualities he looks for in song. In his words, “Music is a refuge. A shelter from the storm. A place you can go to close your eyes.”Since he first shared his music with IZWID Records boss Kutmah at a Brainfeeder afterparty in London, Jitwam has released through Leaving Records, Cosmic Compositions, and The Jazz Diaries (the label he co-runs with Casey Van Reyk and Nigel Mphisa). He’s also written with Inkswel (BBE) and Paul White (R&S), featured on Moodymann’s K7! “DJ-Kicks” compilation and been championed by Gilles Peterson, Alexander Nut, Andrew Jervis (Bandcamp), and Funkineven. Mainly mixed and mastered by Matthewdavid at Stones Throw studios in Los Angeles, “िज़तम िसहँ (selftitled)“ will be available on vinyl and digital formats.

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.

Haiyti hat Hip-Hop in den vergangenen 18 Monaten einmal auf links gezogen. Die alten Gewissheiten, sie gelten nicht mehr, die vermeintlichen Grenzen zwischen Straße und Avantgarde, Gangsta und Kunst, Untergrund und Pop. Haiyti hat sie eingerissen, als Einzelkämpferin im Über-Macho-Geschäft Deutschrap. Mit DIY-Releases im gefühlten Wochentakt katapultierte sich die Rapperin und Sängerin aus Hamburg-St. Pauli an die Spitze einer neuen Generation, der Regeln nichts bedeuten, Freiheit dafür umso mehr. Das brachte ihr Liebe quer durch alle Lager. Dendemann, Haftbefehl, Deichkind: alle Fans. Von finsteren Trap-Höhlen bis zu Rock am Ring: alle am Durchdrehen. Das Hip-Hop-Magazin #1 JUICE nahm Haiyti aufs Cover; die ZEIT erkannte in ihr “Falco, der klingt wie Nina Hagen” und befand knapp: “Eine Pop-Revolution bahnt sich an.” Nun veröffentlicht Haiyti ihr erstes großes Album über Vertigo/Capitol. “Montenegro Zero” ist ein gefühltes Debüt, ein Klassiker seines ganz eigenen Genres: zwölf Songs, keine Features, ein Moment, ein Vibe. Haiyti selbst nennt es “Gangsta-Pop” – Geschichten von ganz unten mit Melodien für ganz oben. In dieser Musik vermischen sich radikaler Party-Nihilismus und die Kälte des Milieus mit beispielloser emotionaler Tiefe und absurd eingängigen Hooks; Einflüsse von Trap bis Dancehall und Deutsche Welle mit Haiytis ureigener Sprache und Stimme. “Montenegro Zero” ist Musik aus tiefstem Herzen, direkt in die Fresse.Produziert wurde die LP von KitschKrieg. Das Berliner Produzententeam hat nachhaltig verändert, wie deutsche Popmusik im Hier und Jetzt klingt, mit gefeierten Arbeiten für u.a. Trettmann, die Beginner oder Bonez MC & Raf Camora. Nach der kultisch verehrten “Toxic”-EP aus dem Jahr 2016 ist “Montenegro Zero” die zweite Zusammenarbeit mit Haiyti. “Montenegro Zero” macht alles auf Null und ist gleichzeitig Neuanfang. G-Punk, Tropi-Trap und Welthits für ein besseres Morgen, in einem Paralleluniversum voll ehrlicher Halunken. Hinweis: Cover und Tracklisting können sich bis zur Veröffentlichung noch ändern!

In the Beginning: Before the Heavens contains previously heard songs and unreleased gems – the best of the best chosen from over 40 songs in the vault. Their third collaboration follows 2012’s Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them, and is slated for an October release.In The Beginning: Before the Heavens is made of up songs that are raw and untouched, keeping the authenticity of Blu and Exile’s creativity at the time. The album has guest appearances from familiar names like Dr. Oop, Donel Smokes, Aloe Blacc, and Blame One. While “Soul Provider,” “Another Day,” and “Party of Two” appeared on Blu’s Lifted EP, the majority of these songs showcase Blu rapping at his peak, maintaining his underground attitude as he dishes on reaching star status (“Constellations”), getting radio play (“On the Radio”), or opposing views in a problem-ridden world (“You’re Gonna Die Someday”). Exile, meanwhile, builds a golden hip-hop era feel with head-nodding samples and DJ scratches.In addition to releasing In The Beginning: Before the Heavens for their fans, Blu and Exile are continuing their celebration of Below the Heavens with an anniversary tour. After such a huge turnout for the duo’s Below the Heavens anniversary show at the Regent Theatre in L.A. in July, they decided to take the live experience on the road with Dag Savage, Choosey, and Cashus King.

Through touring the world and making a positive impact with his music, Ed O.G's continued relevance in Hip Hop is not to be questioned.The limited edition CD contains the the full-length documentary DVD and the bonus track “Keeps Calling Me” featuring Al Copeland.

Hip hop is an art form and culture that is constantly changing. Musically speaking, new technology and the latest trends have a very real influence on the records released from year to year. It's easy to get caught up in the pop culture hype machine and triplet beats that currently dominate rap. Trends come and go, but the proven elements of hip hop music will continue to be relevant for years to come. For instance, MC's that spit ferocious bars over dusty, head-splitting beats will never go out of style. Enter Detroit's Nolan The Ninja and his latest record, YEN.Released on DJ Soko's imprint, Left Of Center (LOC), YEN picks up where Nolan's earlier projects left off. Nolan, who has been gaining momentum in Detroit and beyond, continues to demonstrate his ability to rip a microphone. Underneath Nolan's agile delivery is an element of storytelling that is sometimes lost in rap. From Nolan's rhymes to guest appearances by Blu, Add-2, Denmark Vessey, and Quelle Chris, there is no shortage of heavy bars on YEN. "Calisthenics," which features Royce Da 5'9, is an exceptional track that showcases Royce's talent and lyrical depth.With stand out production from Black Milk, 14KT, Chanes, Denmark Vessey, Scud One, and Nolan himself, YEN is 17 tracks of non-stop heat that creates the perfect backdrop for Nolan's strong delivery. While certain trends in hip hop move one way, it's clear that Nolan The Ninja is content going the other direction. His new album isn't reliant on catchy hooks, trap beats or the glorification of party culture. Instead, YEN is a combination of heavy bars and head-splitting beats that accurately reflects Nolan's perspective and life experiences. YEN exemplifies the type of music that will remain relevant even after the current trends have faded and something new becomes popular.

Fueled by today's lack of appreciation and the decline in the art of the lyricist, Hex One's latest album 'Words Worth a Thousand Pictures' aims to take a stand for those who are truly masters of their craft. Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music. Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable. The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip-hop's musical landscape today. His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

Reginald Omas Mamode IV follows last year's self-titled debut album with 'Children Of Nu', set for release on 3rd November 2017. The 20 track album draws influence from the world around us, everyday life. As we witness rising poverty, global events, political and ethnic divisions - these factors prompt some of Reginald's themes and call for humanity to recognise we are all interconnected. We are all related. We're all brothers and sisters with common ancestry, common history and a common origin regardless of race, geographic location or belief systems. Love and compassion are universal feelings/practices we all should embrace and apply to all aspects of our lives, our interactions and our relationships, regardless of the kinship'. - Reginald Omas Mamode IV 'Children Of Nu' encompasses Reginald's musical and sonic influences - Afro Roots music through to jazz and soul. It draws from Africa as much as the west, an attempt to make a record that can exist in many contexts, the present, the future and past. Recorded with freedom - most tracks remain from the first take - the process of creating 'Children Of Nu' was an open ended development from a natural, intuitive, starting point. Made with minimal thought of how tracks would end up, the music was led through the creative process. Born of a moment, each track is an attempt to capture that instance, mood, feeling or subject.

Exlcusively available at hhv.de! Limited edition of 100 copies only!Only one copy per customer!“Psychedelic 60s” refers to the time of social, musical and artistic change influenced by encouraged unity, the breaking down of boundaries, the heightening of political awareness, empathy with oth-ers, and the questioning of authority. The 1960s was a decade of social revolution full of historical movements, new technology, and pop-ular culture. It was also considered the Psychedelic Era because of the commonly initiated drug influence. Psychedelic tendencies altered the artwork, films, and music of this time period. Music in particular was very popular to this scene and many legendary artists and bands were established in the sixties. Although countless musicians consistently used or experimented with different drugs and this us-age affected the popularity of their music, it is questionable whether it was perceived in a good way or a bad way. Most artists used drugs such as cannabis, LSD, and magic mushrooms to open up creative pathways for writing and some even used them while performing. Not only were the mu-sicians trying drugs, but many of their fans were using while listening to their music to replicate and enhance the mind-altering experiences of hallucinogenic drugs. Produced and arranged entirely by M.I. (Constant Deviants).

The lead single from the highly sought-after “Travel At Your Own Pace” features the exclusive, previously unreleased B-side, “Pyramids”. This song includes a rare vocal appearance from Damu The Fudgemunk.This the song's first official reissue and its first appearance pressed on a 45. Both songs packaged in full color double sided cover art. Known to many as the group Y Society, Insight the Truncator and Damu the Fudgemunk celebrate 10 plus years of friendship and a creative partnership that hold the two in high esteem of their fans. The MC & producer's new 7" is a compelling display of why the duo have always been at the top of their game despite their reserved output since debuting as a team in 2007.Surprising the world at the top of the year with their full length, "Ears Hear Spears" was a great way to sound the alarm for the excitement of new activity. Selective by nature, Insight and Damu's calculations have served advantageous in making moves and presenting listeners with the right music at the right time. The latest incarnation of this truth can be heard in the previously unreleased b-side track entitled "Pyramids to the Ghetto." Although it was recorded in 2008, it was archived and remained unreleased until now. Now in 2017 this particular song couldn't be any more relevant in how the artists analyze the effects racism of the past & present and its correlation to black plight throughout the Americas (both Insight & Damu drop verses on this track).Continuing narratives of such legends as Public Enemy and Jeru the Damaja in which the track title quotes, the group individually presents short essays in rhyme form that give a candid account of what they've witnessed as black U.S. citizens living in the 20th and 21st Century. Not only are the social effects on the table for examination, but the positive and negative impacts a racist society has had on black contributions to art and culture are discussed. For the songwriters, "Pyramids to the Ghetto" is therapeutic in which harsh realities are confronted in an unapologetic manner contrasting the previous socially charged material in Insight and Damu's back catalog.For the listeners, it's a history lesson and a call to motivate us all that history doesn't always have to repeat itself even when it's been the norm for centuries. Adversity and oppression historically have hold some back and made some stronger, but acknowledgement is the first step of progression. The A-Side, "Never Off (On & On)" speaks on just that. It's a roadmap to dealing with everyday adversity, maintaining faith in self and striving to reach your full potential. Insight presents sermons of encouragement to the everyday person over the Fudgemunk's uplifting beat. The producer chimes in on the chorus with a few words of his own that insists to keep on your path and never fall off. The old saying goes, "Life ain't easy", but the group knows success is not unrealistic. "Never Off (On & On)" was the debut single from the debut album, "Travel at Your Own Pace" which has remained a staple in Insight the Truncator's and Damu the Fudgemunk's legacy.

Exlcusively available at hhv.de! Limited edition of 100 copies only!Only one copy per customer!In 1998, when Constant Deviants were fresh on the scene, the duo released “Can’t Stop,” an ode to hip-hop that put the duo of M.I. and DJ Cutt on the map. The single served as the foundation for Constant Deviants’ now loyal fan base, a swarm of supporters that eventually led Constant Devi-ants to form their own label, SIX2SIX Records. Now, 14 years later and with their latest album “Diamond” scheduled for release this fall, Constant Deviants are revisiting the track with a sequel, of sorts, fittingly titled “Won’t Stop.” “The song is a letter to hip-hop,” explains M.I., “and since it’s Part 2 of the record we put out in ’98, the point was to capture the feeling of NYC in 2012.” Musically, they strike a perfect balance between the two eras, with DJ Cutt’s crackling, soulful chops and driving drums, and M.I. at his most earnest – and strongest lyrically – recounting the story of how he fell in love with the music he wound up dedicat-ing his life to.The video, directed by Jimmy Powell and IHenry, captures much of the same classic feel, with shots of M.I. and Cutt making their way across the Brooklyn Bridge and around New York City.

Die alten Gewissheiten, sie gelten nicht mehr, die vermeintlichen Grenzen zwischen Straße und Avantgarde, Gangsta und Kunst, Untergrund und Pop. Haiyti hat sie eingerissen, als Einzelkämpferin im Über-Macho-Geschäft Deutschrap. Mit DIY-Releases im gefühlten Wochentakt katapultierte sich die Rapperin und Sängerin aus Hamburg-St. Pauli an die Spitze einer neuen Generation, der Regeln nichts bedeuten, Freiheit dafür umso mehr. Das brachte ihr Liebe quer durch alle Lager. Dendemann, Haftbefehl, Deichkind: alle Fans. Von finsteren Trap-Höhlen bis zu Rock am Ring: alle am Durchdrehen. Das Hip-Hop-Magazin #1 JUICE nahm Haiyti aufs Cover; die ZEIT erkannte in ihr “Falco, der klingt wie Nina Hagen” und befand knapp: “Eine Pop-Revolution bahnt sich an.” Nun veröffentlicht Haiyti ihr erstes großes Album über Vertigo/Capitol. “Montenegro Zero” ist ein gefühltes Debüt, ein Klassiker seines ganz eigenen Genres: zwölf Songs, keine Features, ein Moment, ein Vibe. Haiyti selbst nennt es “Gangsta-Pop” – Geschichten von ganz unten mit Melodien für ganz oben. In dieser Musik vermischen sich radikaler Party-Nihilismus und die Kälte des Milieus mit beispielloser emotionaler Tiefe und absurd eingängigen Hooks; Einflüsse von Trap bis Dancehall und Deutsche Welle mit Haiytis ureigener Sprache und Stimme. “Montenegro Zero” ist Musik aus tiefstem Herzen, direkt in die Fresse.Produziert wurde die LP von KitschKrieg. Das Berliner Produzententeam hat nachhaltig verändert, wie deutsche Popmusik im Hier und Jetzt klingt, mit gefeierten Arbeiten für u.a. Trettmann, die Beginner oder Bonez MC & Raf Camora. Nach der kultisch verehrten “Toxic”-EP aus dem Jahr 2016 ist “Montenegro Zero” die zweite Zusammenarbeit mit Haiyti. “Montenegro Zero” macht alles auf Null und ist gleichzeitig Neuanfang. G-Punk, Tropi-Trap und Welthits für ein besseres Morgen, in einem Paralleluniversum voll ehrlicher Halunken. Hinweis: Cover und Tracklisting können sich bis zur Veröffentlichung noch ändern!

Meyhem Lauren's Gems From The Equinox is the crown jewel of modern NY rap. A future classic soundtracked by legendary producer DJ Muggs who has redefined dusty hip-hop production into a polished and dark, psychedelic world. The equinox is the one day of the year where day and night are the exact same length and this is the perspective of this album, the equal balance of darkness and the light. The project chronicles the urban decay and wild experiences only to be found in the New York underworld from the perspective of an intelligent hoodlum, Londell Manuver, AKA Meyhem Lauren. Sonic influences from elements of Cypress Hill's Black Sunday, Mobb Deep's Hell On The Earth and Capone and Noreaga's The War Report. The album features include the likes of Action Bronson, B-Real, Roc Marciano, Sean Price, Conway, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and more.

The album artwork has been designed by Berlin-based illustrator Rahel Süsskind (best known for her work with Money $ex Records) and comes with two front covers. The LP is limited to 500 copies.

„Alle gegen Alle“ von Zugezogen Maskulin ist das stille Statement einer wütenden Band. Auf Beats, die überwiegend von Silkersoft produziert wurden, knüpfen sie nahtlos an ihr Debütalbum „Alles brennt an“ und machen trotzdem alles anders. „Alle gegen Alle“ ist ein krachendes Album einer Band, die sich zurückgezogen hat, in die dunklen Kammern der eigenen Vergangenheit und nicht wegschaut, wenn sie an die eigenen Untiefen herantritt und so entstand, unter der Regie von Markus Ganter, der als Executive Producer in Erscheinung trat, ein Album wie eine Zugfahrt durch ein Land, in dem man vor Jahren schon einmal gewesen ist. Eine Zugfahrt hinein in die Welt aus Glasfassaden und Beton, zurück auf den Bolzplatz und ins Kinderzimmer zwischen Bong und Hansa-Schal, dorthin ins Moor zwischen Reetgedeckten Häusern und dem roten Bonanzarad, wo man früher einmal zuhause war und heute nicht mehr zuhause sein kann, weil man in der Zwischenzeit den Bordstein und die Skyline gesehen hat. Nicolai Potthoff (Ex-Tomte) wiederum liefert mit seinen Synthi-Flächen auf „Steine und Draht“, den Hintergrund für eine Reise in die Psyche einer Nation und wieder zurück, während Kenji bei „der müde Tod“ ein zeitloses Glockenspiel hervorgezaubert hat, zu dem dich ein jeder Tod fest bei den Händen packen würde, um dich zum Tanzen zu zwingen. Seltsam zeitlos wirkt dieses Album von Zugezogen Maskulin. Seltsam gut ist es geworden. Box-Inhalt:• DigiPac CD des Albums "Alle gegen Alle" • einen gewobenen "Alle Gegen Alle"-Fussballschal mit geballten Fäusten und wuchtigen Frakturschriftzügen, • ein großes Poster mit dem alternativen Cover-Design, • alle Texte, handgeschrieben als illustriertes Lyrik-Buch • und ein paar Sticker!

"Degenhardt gibt es nicht." Nur konsequent, dem Namen "Degenhardt" ein "Destroy" voran zu stellen, wenn auch vielleicht nur für diese eine Nacht. Am Morgen danach kann leicht alles schon wieder ganz anders aussehen. Wer sich auf den Mann mit der schönsten Maske und den tiefsten Augen einlässt, muss aber ohnehin auf den Moment vertrauen. Ob in seinem von Kratern durchfurchten Fantasia jemals wieder die Sonne aufgeht: Niemand kann das mit Sicherheit sagen. Ist auch zweitrangig: "Das Handbuch des Giftmischers" gehört in die Nacht.

“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.

Limited edition CD!Featuring productions by Large Professor, Ayatollah, Lord Finesse and Psycho Les with guest appearances by Tragedy Khadafi, Sonny Banks, Thirstin Howl The 3rd and many others!In the late 80's and early 90's Powerule stood century as the vanguard of an eventual Latin explosion in Hip Hop. Dominating mix shows and video mediums the Nuyorican experience in hip hop culture finally had their own voice. In 1991 they released their debut album “Volume 1” on Interscope Records that featured Leaders of The New School, Large Professor & Kurious Jorge. Powerule along with 2Pac were one of the first Hip Hop artists signed to Interscope Records.Powerule went on to pave the way for artist like Fat Joe, Kurious, Big Pun, Tony Touch, The Beatnuts and others. Throughout the 1990s they released a string of classic singles such as "Dawn to Dusk”, "Bright Lights Big City", "Rock your Knot Quick", "Heatin up" & “Well Connected” produced by some of Hip Hop’s most celebrated producers: Mark Ronson, Erick Sermon & VIC from The Beatnuts.It's been 26 years since Powerule released a physical album. This is unprecedented in the industry and happens to be their best work to date. The music and the lyricism proves that the Golden Era of Hip Hop still is relevant. A virtual who's who of producers provide the back bone for the album. Large Professor provides a hypnotic melody on “Glorify and Praise” and Prince Powerule delivers an adult contemporary message. When asked how it was working with Large Professor again after 26 years Prince said "I've never been pushed so hard in the booth. It took me a month to really get the flow and the lyrics right. It was exactly what I need to thrust myself back in the game." Production from Psycho Les of the Beatnuts on “718” with verses by himself and Tragedy Khadafi make this Queens anthem bump!! DJ Eclipse provides a resident DJ appeal appearing on 3 songs. The album has a consistent feel capturing the essence of NY hip hop with strong story-telling and jewels of wisdom. Lord Finesse gifts Powerule with a melodic gem on “Get Right” feat Sonny Banks. Ayatollah, Self Service, VIC, Team Demo and others fill out this album but it ever loses its authentic feel..

Wise Intelligent is one of the original founders of Conscious Hiphop, on the mantle alongside of Public Enemy, Mos Def & Lauryn Hill. As a founding member of the classic group Poor Righteous Teachers, he landed a gold album with his debut and ended up selling 2 million plus records between 1989-1996. Add to that being named Top 50 most-slept on emcees of all-time by Complex magazine, a Top 100 Albums of All-Time placement by The Source, and a #5 most-underrated emcee award from About.com and you have the understanding of where many of today’s emcees styles come from. But more importantly were the terms upon which Wise Intelligent laid his foundation: Principle above profit, community over self. Wise Intelligent is one of the premiere voices for Black consciousness in music today. Enter Gensu Dean. Currently based in Austin, Texas, the analog producer has laid rock solid sonic foundations for everyone from Grammy award winner and friend David Banner to Cali-agent Planet Asia. Add a host of Hiphop who’s whos like Large Professor, CL Smooth, Ol Dirty Bastard, Roc Marciano, Denmark Vessey, Homeboy Sandman, Diamond D, and to Shady Records signee Conway The Machine into Dean’s production credits and you’ll start to get the picture. His sound is analog, ranging from MPC3000 to SP1200. Gensu is a one of a kind, back to basics, head nodding, beat making, smash mouth producer with as many chambers as Khufu at Cheops. Now the two legends have teamed up in Atlanta to record a new album together over the past 6 months. From there Gensu brought the record home to Austin for some preliminary mixing, then flew out to the equally legendary DITC Studios in the Bronx to mix the record with Parks. After a quick flight back to Texas and sessions with Jimi Bowman at Klearlight studios in Dallas, the masters were complete and a new project ready for the masses: “Game of Death.” Rooted in Universal Science, the album takes dead aim at mediocre, dumbed down, manufactured rap while treating Music as the weapon it is. This is cultural warfare bridging the gap from Roxanne & Biz Markie to Jay Electronica & Erykah Badu. Bending time & space, Gensu & Wise take listeners through history with amazingly wide-eyed clarity. With statements as straight-forward as “Your shit aint Hiphop if it’s corporate” there is no missing the message of self-determination. This is the type of liberation that starts with your mind and is more about what you shed than what you add on. Somebody say Amen.

For the Mello Music Group release, Quelle assembled a veritable hip-hop Justice League: Roc Marciano, Homeboy Sandman, Denmark Vessey, Jean Grae, Elzhi, Cavalier, et. al. Then there’s the production, mostly handled by Quelle, but aided by crucial assists from MNDGSN, Iman Omari, Chris Keys, Swarvy, and Alchemist. Despite the preponderance of talent sharing the stage, the guests bend to the world that Quelle created. A darker shade of psychedelia, as if Madvillain gobbled anti-anxiety pills instead of psilocybin. Or maybe a fraternal drunken twin to Open Mike Eagle’s “Dark Comedy.” The title comes from a real-life discussion about the difficulties of consistency. How each of us are subject to both our own bad spirits and bursts of inspiration, those unavoidable Serotonin and dopamine peaks and valleys. Being You is Great is an attempt to catalog those moods. It’s about learning to love, or at least recognize, the best and worst of one’s self. It’s about loneliness and comfort. Learning to hate love and learning to love hate. Sequenced so that extreme confidence follows casual despair, the pendulum swings back and forth, mirroring our own emotions and validating something that Nietszche and Ray Bradbury once claimed: “we have art so we won’t die of truth.” If hip-hop is filled with everymen and superheroes, Quelle Chris has done something quietly radical. This record is almost too human—full of the sublte revelations that only come to you later in life, when you realize that heroes make plenty of errors, and anti-heroes often have merit. It’s not an exuberant celebration of human life, nor is it a politicized condemnation of what got us here. It’s a record with beats that will make you bob your head and tap your feet, and clever lyrics that will make you laugh and scrunch your face. But most of all, it’s a record with a tremendous reserve of empathy. Something that captures the wonder and madness of being human. Something relentlessly honest. Something great.
