Release:2019 / DE – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limitiert auf 500 Kopien! Produziert von Achim Funk, Pavel, Tito, Klaus Layer & Nes64.

Jetzt ist Schluss mit Faxen!
Die zwei Männer ohne Grenzen Mc Bomber und Shacke One schlagen in gewohnt rabiater Manier zurück und untertreiben maßlos auf Nordachse 2.

2019 stellt die Nordberliner Punzen-Knacker-Bande auf ungeahntem Level ihre Supermann-Qualitäten unter Beweis: Sie retten Heiko vor der ungarischen Salami und Faschos und (nebenbei) retten sie deutschen Rap unmissverständlich vor der Verdummung: „Berlin sagt Nein“ singt und klingt es von den Dächern Weddings bis zum kindischen P-Berg…

Beats natürlich nur von Nordachse-Hausproduzenten.

Shacke und MCB bleiben ihrer Linie treu, dennoch gib`s zwölf bis dreizehn Überraschungstricks… Nordachse 2 ist ernstgemeint witzig, witzigerweise ernst, wahrscheinlich das Beste, was du Opfer 2019 zu hören bekommst.

Transit
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Melting Pot Music)
19,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Limited gatefold edition, includes a 20-page photo booklet by Robert Winter!

“Jazz (We've Got)” was the title of the second single from A Tribe Called
Quest's iconic album “The Low End Theory”. It was released in 1991, the
same year FloFilz was born. Similar to Tribe FloFilz resurrects jazz for a
new generation. He has been doing this for a while now and is pretty good
at it, as you might know if you are familiar with his previous works
“Metronom” and “Cenário”.
In 2019 things have changed. Today jazz is not only about diggin' old
records and learning about Bird and Trane. Jazz is very much alive and the
city of London has become one of its epicenters. The UK jazz scene is
happening because it is deeply connected with hip-hop, soul and club
music. A perfect setting for FloFilz. Over the last 18 months, he has
collected serious Eurostar miles, heading from Aachen to London - going to
gigs, hanging out with musical allies and recording new material.
This is why he calls his new album “Transit”. Through 18 tracks FloFilz
translates the current London vibe in his very own style and fashion and I
dare to say that “Transit” may be the best album he has treated us with so
far.

Son of a bitch. It's been a minute since our antihero & hidden gem left Germany's hip-hop scene amazed by his highly acclaimed debut release. Enter CULTURE, the synthesis of bass heavy, modern production & arrangements, obscure rap cameos and dreamy vocal chops. CULTURE is KUSO GVKI's very own way of setting a new standard of artsiness & musical freedom in 2019.

The beat wunderkind, raised in a Japanese home, uses his music to reflect on critical topics ranging from materialism and religion to sexism, violence, and racism, yet never without leaving plenty of space to explore his very own concept of modern day identity. KUSO GVKI's filthy art stretches the lines of political correctness over and over again, challenging his audience to look beneath the surface. The shitty brat did it again.

Ecke Prenz
Nachts Im Thälmann Park
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Ecke Prenz Record Club / HHV)
17,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Schon ewig steht Arbeiterführer Ernst Thälmann mit gestreckter Faust in seinem Park und wartet auf Ecke Prenz. Und ihre Platte. Seit Mitte der 00er Jahre, als sich die beiden Berliner in Prenzlauer Berg das erste Mal trafen, wartet er nun schon.

Und jetzt, jetzt sind Breaque und V.Raeter tatsächlich fertig. Na, endlich. Genauer gesagt: unendlich. Facettenreich.Ecke Prenz sind Genre-Millionäre, nicht nur beim Auflegen im Club, sondern auch auf ihrem Produzenten-Debut. Zurück zur Ecke Prenzlauer Allee, dort wo er liegt, der Ernst-Thälmann-Park. Die Plattenbau-Parkanlage aus den 80ern wurde für die beiden Ankerpunkt und Symbol des gemeinsamen Schaffens. Dessen Ergebnis jetzt dieses musikalische Denkmal ist, dass sie dem Park und sich selbst setzen. Bums.

Dieses Album ist eine herzliche Einladung zum tagträumen, rapraven und nachts spazieren. Am besten gleichzeitig. Warum nicht auch barfuß. „Nachts im Thälmann Park“ fragt sich nicht, ob es jetzt TripHop, HipHop, BoomBap, FutureBass, Ambient, Uneasy Listening, Downbeat, Uptempo oder vielleicht sogar Big Beat ist. Ecke Prenz sind transgenre im HipHop-Kosmos unterwegs.

Ihre Platte hat nicht die geringste Ahnung, wie spät es ist, welches Jahr gerade ist oder in welchem Universum es sich gerade befindet. Jedem einzelnen Song ist das auf seine Weise völlig wurst. Dieses Album versucht nicht krampfhaft irgendeinen kurzweiligen Zeitgeist einzufangen. Stattdessen sind die Songs über Jahre ungezwungen zu einer ganz eigenen Definition einer Langspielplatte herangereift. Eine Spielmichsehrlangplatte. Spätestens nach dem Mix- &Mastering-Besuch bei Dexter, war klar: Dieses Album ist für immer. Für immer nachts im Thälmann Park.

Achso: Ecke Prenz, das sind die DJ’s & Produzenten Breaque und V.Raeter. Die beiden aus dem Ecke Prenz Radio. Der eine DJ bei Audio88 & Yassin. Der andere DJ von Fatoni. Ein DJ Duo, dass sich von ihrem Rapmusik-Ursprung völlig befreit durch sämtliche Clubmusik tanzt.

Harleighblu heard Bluestaeb’s music for the first time in London’s Jazz Café in 2016 and approached him to work on an album shortly after that. The multinational duo decided to search for new ways to express their common love for uncompromised hip-hop and R&B. Bluestaeb’s soulful approach to beat making complements Harleighblu’s performance perfectly as she stakes her claim on the neo soul and hip-hop territory she always identified with as an artist. Speaking about the collaboration Bluestaeb says: “When I got the first demo recordings from Harleighblu, I was blown away. I’ve worked with multiple singers before, but this time I felt that somebody finally really knew how to handle my beats properly and turn them into songs.“ Their debut project “She” achieves a distinctive sound that merges old school aesthetics with a new school attitude and organic instrumentation, progressive neo soul and beat heavy hip-hop, whilst Harleighblu’s unique vocals push through the sonic boundaries of R&B. “She” was recorded at Manolo Purple Studio, the Berlin homebase of Bluestaeb and his longtime collaborator S. Fidelity, who recorded, executive produced and mixed the album and accompanied the artists throughout the entire creative process. The record also features Blue’s Jakarta Records label mate JuJu Rogers and a variety of instrumentalists hailing from the UK, France and Germany.

Harleighblu introduced herself in 2013 with the charismatic, beat-heavy soul of her Tru Thoughts debut LP “Forget Me Not”, which was championed by 1xtra’s Mistajam and BBC 6 Music’s Don Letts. Since then she has not looked back, garnering critical acclaim for her unique style from the likes of Complex, Dummy, The Line Of Best Fit and Clash to name but a few. She has performed at prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Boomtown and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide festival.

Hailed as an up and coming ‘queen of soul’ with references to Nina Simone, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse, Harleighblu’s signature sound has matured into a frank, self-possessed voice that pulls no punches and makes no apologies. Bringing us honest, feminine, yet unrepentant lyrical touches and establishing herself as one of the UK's most promising young artists.

On the other hand, Bluestaeb made his name through his releases via German tastemaker label Jakarta Records, where he released alongside Kaytranada, Ta-Ku and Mura Masa. His solo efforts ‘Rodalquilar’ (2015) and ‘Everything Is Always a Process’ (2018) and his collaboration project “LIT - Lost In Translation” with rapper JuJu Rogers have been internationally praised for their warm characteristic sound receiving airplays on Soulection, BBC 1, Rinse.FM and many more. His works have amassed more than 20 million streams and Bluestaeb has played shows and festival all over Europe, including Melt Festival and splash! Festival.

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Pete Rock is widely recognized as one of the greatest hip hop producers of all time. His name is oft included in the pantheon of the greatest, alongside DJ Premier, RZA and J Dilla. In addition, Pete has one of the world’s most extensive vinyl collections, the sort of collection who’s size can only be estimated – and that estimate stands in excess of 100,000 LPs. 2019 will see the launch of Pete Rock’s own imprint, Tru Soul Records. And being a lover of all things vinyl, he’s decided that the label’s inaugural release has to be for Record Store Day. Rock’s production forte is the melding of Jazz with early 90s East Coast boom bap, as demonstrated though his work with partner in rhyme CL Smooth. But there was a time before Pete met CL, a time before the world came to know Pete Rock & CL Smooth, a time when Pete was a 19 year old in his basement in Mount Vernon, NY making beats with his SP-1200. These are those beats. Released for the first time ever on “Return Of The SP-1200” debuting on Record Store Day 2019.

The album finds the Haitian born, Montreal raised producer delivering on the promise of his early self-released EPs and remixes.

Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. He explains, “after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn’t stop making beats,” pumping out a handful of tracks per day for the next couple of years.

Having released singles like ‘Drive Me Crazy‘ with Vic Mensa and ‘Leave Me Alone‘ with Shay Lia, Kaytranada has since cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines.

99.9% features guest turns from Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa, Little Dragon, Syd, Craig David, Goldlink, Alunageorge, BADBADNOTGOOD and many more.

Die Serie für Ausnahmesound von Ausnahmetalenten geht in die vierte Runde.
Diesmal im Regiesitz ein langer Freund des Hauses und eiserne Konstante in jeder stilfesten instrumental Hip Hop Playlist:

Melodiesinfonie

Seit 2013 erscheint der in Zürich lebende Groovejunkie auf den Sichtexot gelabelten Scheiben und produzierte unter anderem Tracks für Tufu (Abdoom&Unraum) oder Luk&Fil (Brot Ist Essbares Holz).
Aufgewachsen unter den Fittichen eines jazzverrückten Vaters, führte es den talentierten Spross zunächst ans Drumset, wo er in zahlreichen Kombos genreübergreifend Fähigkeiten ausbaute, die sein heutiges Fingerspiel an den Drumcomputern der Nation sowohl Live als auch im Studio übermäßig erhaben scheinen lassen.
Sowohl seine ständige Präsenz in den einschlägigen Clubs über den deutschsprachigen Raum hinaus, als auch seine letzten beiden Soloalben „Friede Freude“ (HHV, 2014) und „Be thankful“ (MPM, 2016) bestätigen, dass man es hier mit einem Musiker zu tun hat, mit dem man noch lange zu rechnen hat.

Mit Sichtexotica IV setzt Melodiesinfonie nochmal einen drauf und stellt erneut sein musikalisches Know-How, als auch sein Gespür genreübergreifend Einflüsse einzuarbeiten und perfekt fusionieren zu lassen zur Schau.
Housige Clapgrooves (Afterdinner), selbst besungene Slowjams (Clearwater) oder Cowbellshuffles so atmosphärisch unterlegt, dass man das Gefühl hat in den Rhodeflächen schwimmen zu können bevor man plötzlich umringt von Neonlichtreklamen die Nachtluft Tokyos schmeckt (Remember It & TOKYO).

Unendlich Vielseitig. Eindrucksstark. Erdend.

Den leidigen Boombap Stempel längst vom Handgelenk gewaschen setzt der Ausnahme Beatenthusiast mit seiner Sichtexotica Fortsetzung ein Ausrufezeichen voller glühender Jazzvibes hinter seine drei Vorgänger.

Sichtexotica IV kommt am 23.11.2018 - wie immer im 10inch Format, limitiert auf 500 handnummerierte Exemplare. Covergestaltung mit besonderer goldener Heißfolienveredlung von Mathilda Mutant.

Ein Rausch für Ohr und Auge.

Bei Flatpocket dreht sich alles um die Scheine oder - um es genau zu nehmen - um das nicht vorhanden sein. Das erste Album von Flatpocket hieß "Geldfundphantasyen" und erschien im Jahr 2012. Sechs Jahre später sind Twit One und Lazy Jones - die Beat-Genies hinter dem Projekt - immer noch pleite genug, um ein ganzes Album darüber zu machen: "Dispo II Dispo". Obwohl Flatpocket durch Samples und Dialoge die ganze Zeit über Geld spricht, ist der Subtext eigentlich die Ablehnung des Materialismus aus einer künstlerrischen Perspektive. Klanglich ist es ein halbes Beat-Tape, ein halbes Hörspiel und ständig Dope. Inklusive Features von Hulk Hodn, C.Tappin und Bob Marley.

Release:2016 / DE – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Dexter, seines Zeichens einer der renommiertesten Vinyl-Digger und Beat-Künstler des Landes und spätestens seit seiner Instrumental-Großtat „The Trip“ Vorbild einer ganzen Szene, hat ein neues Album am Start. Oder? Jein. Denn wer die typische Konzeptverliebtheit des Stuttgarter Produzenten auf dem Schirm hat, dem dürfte schon der Titel seiner neuen Platte ein Licht aufgehen lassen. Diese 17 Tracks hier sind, genau, „Raw Random Files“.
„Ich hab diesmal kein Konzept verfolgt, wie etwa bei ‚The Jazz Files‘ oder ‚The Trip’“, bestätigt Dexter. Vielmehr hat er „Raw Random Files“ mit Beats aus unterschiedlichsten Samplequellen kompiliert, die über die letzten fünf Jahre verteilt entstanden, aber nie auf einer offiziellen Veröffentlichung von ihm, seiner Crew Betty Ford Boys oder gar eines Rappers landeten: Festplattenfundstücke, häufig nachgefragte Instrumentals aus Dexters Live-Sets oder auch mal ein Beat aus einem Videotrailer fürs Beat BBQ – alles in ebenjenem dreckigen, samplelastigen Sound gehalten, der die von Dexter und seinen Beat-Kollegen dominierte Beat-Ära des letzten halben Jahrzehnts prägte.
„Die Zeit der Beat-Tapes à la ‚Hi-Hat Club‘ und die damit verbundene Soundästhetik hatte großen Einfluss auf die Beat-Szene hierzulande“, erklärt Dexter. „’RRF‘ ist für mich auch ein musikalisches Resümee dieser Phase und eben kein wirklich neues Album. Und danach geht’s auf zu neuen kreativen Ufern.“ Bis dahin jedoch darf in neuen alten Beat-Erinnerungen geschwelgt werden – raw und random.

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!

Radio Juicy proudly presents "Dreams From The Shore" the new collaborative album of two amazing rising producers Psalm Trees and Moose Dawa. Just by looking at the cover you can already feel the Summer vibes and the music will hit you like a fresh coastal breeze on the face. Close your eyes and hear the beautiful sound of the waves on the shore, the seagulls singing in the sky, and kids playing on the beach. Like a vivid dream, you can already smell the salty air. While you are packing, we got you covered with the perfect soundtrack. This Summer is gonna be wonderful and we made sure we brought you the music to chill to during this period!

Some things change throughout each season, others only bow to the hands of time. Dreams however are unique in this aspect, formulating in a few seconds what can feel like a lifetime. From the shores of two individual countries in Europe, each entrenched in their own cultures, history & ideals, a pair of beatmakers in their own right were put in touch by a mutual friend during the first touch of spring. As many slept, in their own singular cities, Moose Dawa & Psalm Trees passed notes to each other through the form of digital waves translating into sound.
What once was engraved in the grooves of dusty vinyl records was now being transmitted through the air, bouncing off the satellites hanging in space and back down to their singular locations. It was only after a few months that the pair had something to show for these long nights focused on translating their love of jazz into an album of their own. During the height of summer, Psalm Trees traveled to Moose Dawas' home town of Malmö, where work continued on the fruits of their labour; Digging deep into the record stores of both Denmark and Sweden itself., sampling both the rarities these two regions had to offer and also the wide variety of falafel spots which seemed to appear on every street they turned. The journey concluded in the port city of Rotterdam where the pair put the final touches to this release, getting it ready for it flow freely into the listeners ear.
Dreams From The Shore is the result of what can be achieved together from different parts of the world, transversing the barriers of language and societies norms into sound, reminding us that no matter where we are, like the sea we are always in some sense connected.
- Jullie Stein

The vinyl is a limited edition that feels so good to hold in your hands and sounds amazing thanks to perfect mastering!

Produced, Mixed & Mastered by Psalm Trees & Moose Dawa between the shores of Brighton (UK), Malmö (Sweden) & Rotterdam (Netherlands).

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Brooklyn's DJ Spinna continues to show the world, there's no shortage of beats from his arsenal. The legendary DJ/Producer returns with another installment of his beat tape series on Redefinition Records. Following 2018's Unpicked Treats Volume 1 & 2 series, his latest tape entitled, "1997 Beat Tape" ascends where 2017's "1996 Beat Tape" left off. This collection boasts production all composed and recorded during the year 1997. Spinna was able to locate the original DAT (digital audio tapes) from over 2 decades ago and provide an authentic look into his production from that era.

Known for being one the greatest producers of sample based music, like his other works to date, the "1997 Beat Tape" only solidifies his legacy as being so advanced without the aid of current software and technology. To many hip hop fans, there's something special about production from the 90's. Some of the characteristics from then still remain a mystery to artists of today, but continue to inspire in 2019. Terms like "boom bap", "raw" "real" and "gritty" get thrown around when describing production trends of that time, but we prefer just call it art or simply music. True artisanship and musicianship is on full display throughout this record. 15 well constructed beats are the perfect vehicle to transport vibes from jazzy to synthy to melodic and funky. When asked about the beat tape, Spinna was quoted saying, "I'm letting go of some more classic boom bap instrumentals. This time a batch of beats made in 1997, straight off the original DAT tape. A few of these are first drafts of beats that were released later on for several artists." There you have it. It doesn't get more genuine than that and straight from the artist. So now go get it!

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.

Ta-ku might be the modern day renaissance man. Haven risen to prominence as one of Australia’s most in-demand beatmakers, the Perth-based artist has found himself curator of a rapidly expanding, multi-disciplinary creative empire.

Borne from a late-night sideline to his day job shilling health insurance, Ta-ku’s music has quickly become a global, full-time concern. From early days uploading chopped hip-hop cuts to Soundcloud, the “genre-killer”’s prodigious credits now include ambitious projects like 50 Days For Dilla, high-profile remixes for Flume, Chet Faker, BANKS, Childish Gambino and Justin Timberlake, as well as a clutch of co-writes, production efforts and countless self-releases.

Teaming up with Jakarta Records on the 823 joint label venture, Ta-ku is sharing his now classic ’25 Nights For Nujabes’ project as a digital/vinyl release alongside two completely new Bonus Tracks - both featuring Toronto based producer Matt McWaters. Drawing inspiration from the likes of D’Angelo, James Blake and J Dilla, Matt McWaters fuses modern electronic production with soul and indie undertones. A love for smooth basslines, soulful keys and catchy melodies allows him to carry out his vision with every track.

25 Nights For Nujabes. A beat a night for 25 nights in dedication to Seba Jun. His music was so full of emotion and beauty. Rest in peace. - Ta-ku

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
The producer’s own mixes – recently rediscovered – of his seminal EP, expanded with bonus tracks and now available in a special instrumental edition.

When Ruff Draft saw its initial release in 2003, J Dilla possessed production skills on par with anyone in hip-hop – technically and creatively. “At the top of his game,” says longtime friend and collaborator, Karriem Riggins. After years of building while modestly deferring to others of both greater and lesser notoriety, Dilla finally completed the first solo endeavor on his own label, entirely on his own terms. The significance of such an autonomous success often gets overlooked, and partly accounts for why Ruff Draft is one of the lesser-referenced entries in Dilla’s oeuvre. “It’s a mysterious little project,” says his mother, Maureen Yancey. “But out of his entire career, that was the happiest time.”
Prior to recording the EP, Dilla found himself at a crossroads. Estranged from his label, MCA, and separated from the mother of his youngest daughter, frustration abounded both personally and professionally. Dilla spent parts of 2002 and 2003 working on an album for MCA that featured his rapping over contributions from other producers with whom he had connected and whose music he respected. At the time, he was known primarily for his beats, yet reviled for his MCing by most anyone not from his hometown of Detroit. The project was to be an intentional freak of the industry.
The project would go on to spur his collaborative album with Madlib, Jaylib, and would first showcase the template that he would take to his greatest heights with 2006’s Donuts. The Stones Throw reissue of Ruff Draft from 2008 featured remixes of the songs from the album, done without Dilla’s involvement. This version of the album takes Dilla’s recently discovered mixes of the album and restores his vision for the project.

Ghanaian Stallion ist einer der gefragtesten Produzenten Deutschlands. Nach den Top-10-Alben »Endlich Unendlich« und »Regenmacher«, der »Principium«-Platte mit Chima Ede, EPs mit Torky Tork und Sylabil Spill, arbeitete er mit Kalim, Joy Denalane, Afrobeat-Ikone Tony Allen, Lakmann und Audio88 & Yassin. Mit Megaloh und Musa formt er BSMG, ein selbstermächtigendes, schwarzes Superhelden-Movement, das sich im letzten Jahr einen »Platz an der Sonne« erkämpfte und die Folgen deutscher Kolonialverbrechen in einem panafrikanischen Pamphlet verarbeitete.

Der Berliner mit ghanaischen Wurzeln lebte im Schwarzwald und in Südamerika und ist ein Beat-Globetrotter, der sich in den Sound-Sphären und Kulturen zwischen Lagos und London, Atlanta und Accra, Baden und Berlin heimisch fühlt. Sein Ansatz verknüpft alte Sample-Tugenden mit afrofuturistischem Trap, ist klassisch und vorwärtgewandt, digital und warm. Knapp zwei Jahre nach seinem Instrumental-Debüt »Soul Fruits«, erscheint am 25.05. sein zweites Beat-Tape: »Future Soul«: 12 Tunes wie eine trippy Zeitreise durch Schall und Rausch. Synthie-Schwaden und hypnotische Loops verhallen in Post-R’n’B-Jams, gehen auf Soul Searching – und zeigen Ghanaian Stallion als eigenständigen, komplexen Künstler.

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 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 album "Vignettes" has a long future ahead for years to come.

Medline & Stéphane Carricondo
A Quest Called Tribe Green Vinyl Edition
LP | 2019 | FR | Original (My Bags)
21,99 €*
Release:2019 / FR – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
A Quest Called Tribe begins with the series of portraits drawn by Stéphane Carricondo in 2017 dedicated to Hip Hop legends.
As close partner in art Medline proposed to create a soundtrack for them, and first interpreting ATCQ's classics with elements of the past, present and future.

The best way to materialize this multidimensional tribute was obviously a vinyl. And it's the one we unveil today.

On the visual side:
ATCQ's portraits are composing the front cover and, assembled into a great scene, are printed on a colorful A2 poster. Stéphane Carricondo's natural lines are highlighting each member's soul map. The alchemy of the dark ink on emptiness gives to them an impressive sparkle of life .

On the musical side:
The classic themes are transformed into a polymorphic fusion, were jazz, funk and soul from the original sample sources converse with Tribe's characteristic beats. Medline added a hint of his magic, unique rhythms, improvisations, arrangements, original orchestration and inspired melodies.

The album is an ode to the band that marked both artist's life and mind. A cultural print and school of sound that designed Hip Hop foundations. With a blooming expression Medline and Stéphane Carricondo are going to the roots of ATCQ in a quest for the tribe.

Klaus Layer uses his sampler as an instrument to construct the many layers of music all wrapped up in his songs. Klaus' fascination with antique bizarreness and the surreal grants his work a unique and instantly recognizable personality that transcends his inspirations. It's a sound that demands and rewards repeat listens.
On Restless Adventures, the beloved East Coast aesthetic of his influences are inverted somewhat with what seems to be a preoccupation with the sublimity of the organic green world. The effects are minute, subtle, and highly effectual. The ambient sounds of nature that Klaus organically weaves between layers of snappy drums and warped samples could be described as both psychedelic and organic ... unfamiliar, yet strangely comforting.
Kudos to Klaus for delivering a brave and experimental album to be enjoyed on numerous levels; it swings right for Hip-Hop heads, has layers of exotic instrumentation on top, and potentially something else in-between for listeners who like to look for narratives in their music. Perhaps most impressively, it does all of this a lot more cohesively than the title would have you think. The (Restless) Adventures of Captain Crook continue.
Completely produced with the MPC 2000 XL and a Tascam 8-Track machine. Mastered by K-Def!
