The 38 Strategies Of War
CD | 2019 | US | Original (Tcf Music)
14,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Rochester, New York, February 25th, 2019 - 38 Spesh's buzz is running through the industry like a wild fire right now. While this MC/producer/entrepreneur is not some overnight success that just appeared on the scene, many music critics only became aware of him last year. In fact, Flour City recording artists like Eto, Pounds, and 38 Spesh have been out here delivering quality product for more than a decade. Being a native of Rochester, DJ Green Lantern has been attempting to shed light on the area's talent for 10 years+ as well. And he has consistently worked with Spesh since as far back as 2005.

Spesh was lured back to the streets while Trap was dominating the airwaves and Hip-Hop sales. But when he saw his homies like Benny The Butcher and Eto starting to make waves around 2017, he knew the time was right for a comeback. He made his return in grand fashion in 2018 by dropping collab projects with Mafioso rap godfather Kool G. Rap, Buffalo's most buzzing, Benny, and The Jacka's (RIP) protege, Joe Blow. Then, he sparked 2019 with two drops before February 2.

The first release was an EP titled 5 Shots, which was a warm up to get fans ready for his imminent opus. Then on February 1st he laced listeners with an album to silence the naysayers and satisfy the diehards, 38 Strategies of Raw. Spesh produced almost half this offering and he gets busy on the mic on all 11 joints. Guests include Fred The Godson, Benny The Butcher, Ransom, Klass Murda, Che Noir, and Green Double, and they all bring their A-game for this special affair. Make sure not to miss standout tracks "Soul Pain," "TrustGang," "Dark Night," "Menace," and "Family," although skipping any of the songs here would be a mistake. 38 is also the mastermind behind the TCF (Trust Comes First) Music Group, which boasts a roster that includes Spesh himself, Buffalo vet Klass Murda, and female phenom Che Noir. 2019 is all about TRUST!!

Led by Saxophonist Rob Mitchell, Abstract Orchestra have been a consistent presence on the u.k. music scene, touring constantly in the promotion of their debut LP "Dilla" and follow up 45 "New Day feat. Illa J", steadily building a loyal and supportive fanbase. Inspired by the legendary live performances of The Roots with Jay-Z and the 40 piece orchestral arrangements by Miguel-Atwood Ferguson of the work of J Dilla, classic arranging techniques underpin modern loop-based structures, breathing new life into familiar material.

The band itself is based on the classic jazz big band instrumentation of saxes, trumpets, and trombones and features the cream of the north of England's jazz scene who collectively have played with Jamiroquai, Corinne Bailey Rae, Mark Ronson, Martha Reeves, John Legend & the Roots, Roots Manuva and Amy Winehouse.

"Madvillain Vol. 2" follows on from the 2018 release "Madvillain vol. 1" and further explores the jazz, TV soundtrack and film score aspect of the original work, combining it with classic big band writing and a focus on improvisation. As with vol 1. there is a strong influence of Quincy Jones, Lalo Schifrin and David Shire(Composer of the soundtrack to The Taking of Pelham 123) on the album, and the arranger Rob Mitchell crafts his own sound that inhabits the space between Madlib's production and Quincy Jones' writing.

As a bonus track to the album, Abstract reworks Dabrye's 'Air' and have included the original vocal of MF DOOM. Dabrye's original is heavily soaked in synths and drum machines, with an almost sci-fi, Blade Runner or Tron-esque sound . Mitchell explores this further and is influenced by Bob Brookmeyer's late work 'Electricity', which explores synths and jazz orchestration.

Madvillain Vol. 2 will build on the success of vol. 1 which received enormous support from Gilles Peterson & Huey Morgan on BBC6 Music as well as numerous airplay on Worlwide FM and Jazz FM, and reviews from soulbag in France and ukvibe, qwest.tv, and vinyl district online.

Genre:Hip Hop
Preorder 07.06.2019
The Allergies' new single is '2 Much!' Literally. Between MC Andy Cooper's opening count in, to the memorable end credit shout outs, their latest feel-good hip-hopper crams in more breaks, more funk, and more raps, into a single than the group has ever dared before.
Built around an earworm double bass lick and some neck-snapping drums, the track forms the perfect backdrop for the LA rhyme-slayer let us know that, "On stage I'm calm as a Decepticon/That transforms from Gandhi to Genghis Khan", before dropping his fastest verse…ever. Yes! And if you've heard their blistering early sure shot collabo, 'Rock Rock', then you know that's no mean feat.
Sweating as their go-to mic man ups his game, the production duo of Rackabeat and Moneyshot dutifully raise theirs, digging harder and chopping wilder with the music. They swerve in slick samples and cheeky vocals. Spin back cut sections and take breakbeat U-turns. Yet the ex-Ugly Duckling frontman never falters, relishing the challenge. It makes for one wild ride, leaving you panting for more. Proving that sometimes '2 Much!' is never enough.
The vinyl release of '2 Much!' comes with the exclusive B-side, 'Special 45'. Here The Allergies and Andy Cooper wax lyrical about the 7" format over a smooth hip-hop beat and the cutting of guest scratcher, DJ Robert Smith. One for the dusty donuts crew and record heads, worldwide.

Between gospel music in church and his grandfather’s role in the Latin Jazz scene of Los Angeles, music has always been a factor in Choosey’s lineage. With four years passing since his debut Left Field, Choosey makes his long awaited return with Black Beans, an album conveying the less represented perspective of growing up Afro-Chicano.

Hailing from LA by way of San Diego, Choosey uses Black Beans to make important statements in favor of black and brown unity at a time when his voice is most needed. Autobiographical moments like “I Did” follow in the footsteps of Exile produced masterpieces including Blu’s Below The Heavens and Fashawn’s Boy Meets World, as his soulful beats have always brought honesty and introspection out of the Dirty Science crew. Choosey says “My biggest influences have been people who spoke from the heart, and what’s most honest about me is my heritage. There’s a stigma that Black and Mexican cultures don’t get along, but I wanted to show the beauty in being a product of both.”

Slated for a Spring release, Black Beans captures the feeling of the beautiful struggle while navigating life’s potholes throughout sunny Southern California. Taking the good with the bad, Choosey honors family and his significant other while attacking society’s ills including police brutality and gentrification. Though Black Beans is consistent with Exile’s sound, with this effort, he sampled from a number of sources and an era that best reflects Choosey’s story personally. “Oldies are a big part of Chicano culture on the west coast from the ‘50s to now. Choosey is born out of that. So with this album, we wanted to unify that sound with Hip-Hop” says Exile.

Initially using music as his refuge from hard times, Black Beans proves why Choosey’s command of the mic and passion for self-expression make him one of the most exciting acts emerging from the underground. Combining street smarts and book smarts, the album is sure to impact listeners as he’s a testament to following his dreams while surviving everything from the daily rat race to coming up in territories surrounded by gang activity. As his career continues to flourish, Choosey looks to the future with a bright vision saying “I want to be amongst the greats and connect directly with people as a voice who spoke from the heart.”

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
Esencia is proud to present Forgotten Ones, the new album from London based quintet Culross Close. The album opens with ‘Fractured’, a cosmic musing carried delicately by electric piano and decorated with a synthesized dalliance. The album then cruises into ‘Forgotten Ones’, a spiritual made potent by their choral-esque vocals by far their most accomplished piece to date.
‘Acceptance’ finds the quintet in familiar hip-hop territory, carving out a top tier groove with a recurring piano motif of the highest order. Their vocals, this time more chant than choral makes for a brilliant 5-minute mantra.
‘Mood’ is a stark contrast to anything else on the album, an acidic and rugged illustration of the group’s present state. ‘The Tiniest Lights Still Shine’ is a syncopated excursion in 5/4 time. With an electrifying percussion solo, this will be the song that finds its way onto the dance-floor. ‘Healing’ is a percussion heavy journey, draped in synthesizers and style, embodying elements of 70’s fusion and bossa-nova, a perfect closer to the album.

DESCRIPTION
Since the early aughts, rapper Diabolic and producer
Vanderslice have moved in similar circles, so it was
only a matter of time that they would join forces for a
collaborative record. With the release of Collusion,
that time is now, and it couldn’t have arrived at a
more perfect moment. The project eschews every
trend and flash-in-the-pan style to create a record
that’s a must-listen for anyone who truly appreciates
sharp lyricism and neck snapping production.
“We’re two artists with 18 years of friendship,
colluding to form a cohesive monster,” Diabolic says
of working with Vanderslice. “The chemistry is
automatic,“ he adds. “At first, we tested the waters to
see if the chemistry was there, and if we could
actually make a cohesive record, that we were both
passionate about, and we did,” echoes Slice.
It’s apparent that Collusion is an absolute force when
you hear opening track “Think of That,” a blistering
banger featuring shots at his rivals, over Slice’s
hypnotic production. And the remainder of the album
hits just as hard, with tracks like the chest-thumping
“Normalize,” the Nems featured heater, “See the
Light,” the DJ Revolution-assisted “Simon Phoenix,”
and the B-Side opener, “The Other Side,” which
Vanderslice claims to be one of his toughest beats in
years.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
The 7” version of “Skratch Fossils” is now ready to hit portable platters around the globe! Moschops is the intrepid
commander of Synapsid Studios where he is kept busy as a scholar and a teacher in the arts of sampling and
recording. Keeping skratching and music-making fun is of the greatest importance to this lifelong beat creator, so you
can expect a fun and intuitively easy-to-use skratch tool within these ancient grooves.
Based on his first 12” skratch record release from 2018, Moschops has injected this 7” with new life and crafted this
record to the highest level of precision possible. Loops from the original release have been reworked to function
meticulously using a portable turntable with a few new fossilized samples thrown in for good measure.
On the A side you will find 7 skip-proof tracks built from a large range of styles. From hip-hop to rave tunes with no
shortage of lasers, bass and breaks galore… this tool will keep the creative wax wiggler busy for days! The B side has a
similar format of 7 skip-proof tracks with audio treasures hidden in-between the loops, ensuring the highest amount of
original content possible for your productions and cuts!
As with all recent Cut & Paste Records skratch tool releases you will find an etch on both sides of the disc lined up at
the starting point of each loop. Beyond looking supremely ill, these etches are designed to be used as cue point
markers for the start of each track. Specifically aimed not only at skratchers but beat-smiths as well, this release is
pressed onto black vinyl to squeeze the maximum amount of quality out of the audio found on this disc.
The original artwork for the cover was created by Tops from Milton Keynes, UK.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Next up on First Word Records, we welcome the return of Don Leisure, with an EP of beats that see his two alter-egos go head-to-head, 'Shaboo vs Halal Cool J'.
Probably best known as 50% of Darkhouse Family, along with Melange label boss Earl Jeffers, they released their acclaimed debut album 'The Offering' in 2017 and subsequent remix project last year, featuring DJ Spinna, Kaidi Tatham and more. The duo are coolly establishing themselves as Cardiff's very own Mizell Brothers, recently producing Kamaal William's latest work, featuring on Kutmah's recent Izwid compilation, and collaborating on the Chicago x London project 'Where We Come From', featuring Makaya McCraven, Joe Armon-Jones, Nubiya Garcia, Theon Cross and First Word label-mate Quiet Dawn, amongst others.
'Halal Cool J' appeared originally in early 2017 with 'An Ottoman Excursion' on our sister-label, Excursions. A series of edits born out of a decade-long love of Turkish music, and some record-digging expeditions in Istanbul, something Don Leisure did the very day after 'The Offering' release party, prompting another series of beats. Ahead of an all-new full-length Halal Cool J album, here we have two tracks to give you a taste, 'Kazakh Honey' and 'Kaymak'.
'Shaboo Strikes Back' on the flip-side, with a track of the same name, and 'Mango Season'. 'Shaboo' was the name of a beat album that came out on First Word in 2017, inspired largely by Don's Bollywood actor Uncle, Nasser 'Shaboo' Bharwani, and by memories of journey's with headphones hurling out Hip Hop, fused with the sonics of his Mum's interruptions, and her favourite Asian radio station. 'Shaboo' featured in several end-of-year album lists, with Piccadilly Records calling it "the best album of it's kind since Dilla's 'Donuts'. Unmissable."
Both prior projects got love from DJs and selectors far & wide, including Tom Ravenscroft, Lefto, Huey Morgan, Rob Da Bank, Om Unit, Simbad & Mr Thing. A truly global affair, the beat battle of 'Shaboo vs Halal Cool J' takes us on several short, sweet hikes across a variety of Eastern climes.

The building blocks of their style balance the dissonance and cacophony of some very un-smooth, uncool jazz with hyperactive verse trading between their three members. The results have quickly made them a mainstay of festivals around Japan and Europe and even landed them a miniseries on Japanese cable television in which they both starred and scored all the music. After the release of a few single, Dos Monos are now dropping their debut album ‘Dos City’ on Deathbomb Arc (home to other hip hop acts such as JPEGMAFIA,

The 1990s was a rich vein of classic hip-hop, especially on the East Coast, which rendered some of the greatest works from the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Mobb Deep, and many others. Frequently lost in the genre's New York-centric history was Boston's burgeoning hip-hop scene during the 1990s, spearheaded by working class Roxbury native Edward Anderson, best known by his stage name Ed O.G Over the course of his career, which has spanned nearly 30 years, Ed O.G has maintained an admirably strong cult following, and has gone on to work with contemporaries like RZA, KRS-One, Masta Ace, Pete Rock, and Common, while touring the world over, and producing numerous solo and collaborative albums. Ed O.G.'s illustrious career debuted in 1991, with the release of what is arguably his best known album, Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto, a collaboration with his crew, billed as Da Bulldogs (which was actually an acronym for “Black United Leaders Living Directly on Grooving Sounds”), though Ed O.G was clearly the main event. An underrated classic in its own right, Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto runs a gamut of sounds ranging from the introspective conscious hip-hop of "Be A Father To Your Child", to the whimsical boasts of "I'm Different", to deeply political fare like the Ace & Quan and Def Jef-featuring "Speak Upon It", plastered across a backdrop of Joe Mansfield-produced sample-heavy soundscapes, which snatched clips from deep cuts of James Brown, Roy Ayers, and The Delfonics, to name just a few. It also managed to generate Billboardcharting singles out of tracks like "Bug-A-Boo", "Be A Father To Your Child", and "I Got To Have It", which would become Ed O.G's signature track, and sample fodder for 2Pac, De La Soul, and DJ Premier. Get On Down now presents Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto, an unheralded rarity of renaissance hip-hop, reissued on vinyl for the first time since 1991. The audio has been remastered from its original tapes, so every bit and piece of Ed O.G's masterpiece is crisp and clear on wax. An uncovered gem of 90s rap well worth a re-listen or first-time discovery, and a sterling representation of Boston hip-hop.

This Was Supposed To Be Fun Colored Vinyl Edition
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Strange Famous)
24,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
This Was Supposed to Be Fun, the debut LP (and second official offering) from EPIC BEARD MEN, is an indie-rap tour de force by two of the underground's finest; Sage Francis and B. Dolan.

This album knocks. It parties with disreputable outlaws in truck stops. It blends the classic sounds of breakbeats and timeless drum machines with soul grooves and sub bass. Guitars, violins, and a goddamn brass band have sat in before the party's over. On the vocal side of things, more than a few lyrical heavyweights drop in to take their turn on the mics.

Slug of Atmosphere joins the gang in some NC-17 fun, as Sage and B. are soulfully backed by Blue Raspberry (Wu-Tang Clan) on the road-noir tale "Pistol Dave". Eligh of Living Legends and South African newcomer Yugen Blakrok contribute blistering verses, while New Orleans Bounce legend Vockah Redu, vocalist Kathleen Stubelek of Circle Takes the Square, and San Antonio upstart Worldwide contribute brilliant supporting turns.

Throughout 50 minutes of intricately produced rap music, the duo of storied rapper/poets wander freely and set fires like the latchkey kids they once were. This Was Supposed to Be Fun, but that doesn't mean either emcee has shied away from their signature blend of the personal and political; topics range from the absurd to the unshakably true. EBM are two rap greybeards who aren't afraid to swing freely from dead-serious to wryly hilarious.
