Sarathy Korwar
More Arriving
2LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Leaf)
19,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
We live in divisive times. Multiculturalism rises hand-in-hand with racial tensions, and politicians seem powerless to even bring people within earshot of their convoluted message. It's time for a different perspective. On his second studio album, More Arriving, Sarathy Korwar blasts out his own vibrant, pluralistic missive for the world to hear. This is not necessarily a record of unity; it's an honest reflection of Korwar's experience of being an Indian in a divided Britain. Recorded over two and a half years in India and the UK, More Arriving draws on the nascent rap scenes of Mumbai and New Delhi, incorporating spoken word and Korwar's own Indian classical and jazz instrumentation. This is a record born of confrontation; one for our onfrontational times.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Last year we welcomed Grup Ses to our sister label Sucata Tapes with “Program #01”, a mystically mixed soundtrack of far-out new age and film sountracks from Turkey circa 1986. A new set of Turkish delights were prepared for this year's release. “Deli Divan” it’s a two-part record with incredibly crafted beats that tell a different story depending on the version you chose to listen. A side captivates by its voracity. Hi-tech and fierce beats drop with the sharp voice and flow of Ethnique Punch, delivering 14 – yes, f-o-u-r-t-e-e-n – short and punchy tracks. The diggin’ liveliness of Grup Ses is well present in the samples used, manufacturing beats that serve well the fast paced and nocturnal voice of Ethnique Punch. The first part of “Deli Divan” is pretty much a straight story. A good one.

Was the acronym WTF! first emitted in anticipation of trying to describe Berlin label Kashual Plastik?

Label owner Frans Ambient himself morphs, swapping aliases, as his releases shape-shift, the imprint single mindedly crafting it’s own sound world. With early releases by NY duo Georgia; a mixtape by DJ Richard; the multi-discipline compilation EP "A Weird State Of Experimental Experience” - housed in a grass matting cover, embellished with a screen printed itinerant monk; something akin a postal sack (screen printed again) containing early tape works of Australian electronic pioneer Any Rantzen; and the sharp, wire-bound hand-made EP by magical Japanese electronic / art duo group A.

Mind your fingers, filling is hot!

Kashual Plastik 007 is more than just a double agent, it's a costume changing fifth columnist, destroying and reassessing how we could or should release music in this spoon-fed era.

Established scholars Georgia, alongside freshers NAR, Paul Arambula and KC, mix drinks with F_ingers (a combo of Carla dal Forno, Tarquin Manek & Samuel Karmel (CS + Creme); A.K. Klosowski, the 80´s experimental tape artist from Hamburg, rubs shoulder pads with Brannten Schnüre fresh from their blinding album via Low Company; Nadine Byrne from Swedish noisesters Ectoplasm Girls; Andre Uhl, musician and futurologist - there’s plenty of seats on top. The busload of creators on this anthology weave a psychedelic, dream-like state, with drones, opiated melodies and stellar visions. A pox on your coffee-table music, this wooden beast is both table and feast.

Says Ambient: "The idea behind the compilation was, to select artists and music they sounds pretty organic in a way to me and tried to give them a most possible organic packaging."

The records come in a wood veneer cover, hand screen printed on the front and back - does this signal the end of the "dinged" corner?

Genre:Hip Hop
Sly, Sly Johnson, Sly The Mic Buddah : since the Saïan Supa Crew up until his solo career, the human beat machine keeps on increasing his numerous identities.

From Hip Hop to Soul, then from Soul to Beatmaking: from flow to singing, then from singing to production, Sly Johnson never really changed universe. He has just changed the direction of his musical compass in order to navigate with more flow.

Today, it’s immersed in the mechanics with processors and printed circuits that we find him, under the alias of TAGi, producer-beatmaker who, for the occasion, has joined the services of Steven Beatberg. It’s together, in artistic autarchy with the only presence of softwares, samplers and sequencers, that they have built their pieces in the light of their computer screens, rhythmizing the days by inserting snares or grindings of plugs taken from their sound database.

If records are, most of the time, Hip Hop’s nourishing materials, TAGi et Steven have however not used any samples. Their favourite recordings were not materials to exploit, but an aesthetic from which to inspire, compose, and search atmospheres and melodies, search his arrangements. After three EP dominated by instrumentals, the duo finally chose to realise their dream: to craft a multi-voice album where customized production for each guest would guide the creative process. To put themselves at the exclusive service of artists they particularly love, all different but connected by an uncompromising resistance to the commercial wind blowing on Hip Hop. For each one of them, they have built a title, keeping in mind the precise idea to put to light he or her that will vocally dress the bars.

Rapper Big Pooh, the former member of the Little Brother group (With Phonte & 9th Wonder), the contemporary soul of Lisa Spada, but also the rapist #madeinfrance Pumpkin (worthy descendant of MC Solaar, Fabe …), multi-faceted Georgia Anne Muldrow, the MC Finale, the new rising wave of artists of the Hip-Hop scene in Detroit. Tiemoko from Paris, Saga an MC who follows the pure tradition of the New York Hip-Hop, the very smooth-jazzy Elodie Rama and Dilouya, the producer of the previous record of Sly (The Mic Buddah), are of this casting where men and women share the roles and where TAGi, as soon as the mic presents itself to him, becomes again Sly Johnson for some refrains, choruses or solo rereading of the sublime “Retrograde” of James Blake.

Guided by Hip Hop since the 90’s until today, worked in great detail, YOUARESURROUNDED highlights vintage keyboards on granular rhythms, injecting a lascivious Soul, P-funk, electro futuristic or melancholic in black and white touches on 13 tracks that are as atmospheric as they are emotional.

The substance, the essence, the soul of the Hip-Hop.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
“Coral Cadavers” is an international hip-hop heist of epic proportions. The album re-teams long-time allied forces, German production duo JR&PH7 with New Jersey emcee trio St. Joe Louis.
Filled with off-kilter synths, jazzy samples, stuttered drums and occasional scratched choruses, JR&PH7 set an atmospheric and head-nodding soundscape throughout. St. Joe Louis emcees, Elete Wright, Michael Cardigan and Tommie Chase bound lyrically through each track, serving as narrators and Greek Chorus on this concept album.
According to Michael Cardigan, “Coral Cadavers” is a “neo-noir psychological thriller about a woman’s descent into moral ambiguities against the backdrop of Los Angeles.”
Guest emcees serve to add notable character exposition to the album including Roc Marciano (on “Driven”), Stalley (on “30,000”) Rah Digga (on “Duck Duck Goose”), Phonte & Tamisha Waden (on “Invitation”) respectively.
This album is the culmination of a musical partnership that began in 2010 with the release of the New High 7'. St. Joe Louis was also featured heavily on the JR&PH7 “My Favourite Demons EP” in 2012 (along with other NJ crew, Brokn English).
JR&PH7 have been working on music together for a decade. Among their work is numerous full-length producer albums (“The Standard”, “The Update”, “The Good Life” and “Noir”) which features appearances from notable emcees including Willie The Kid, Phonte, Sean Price and Roc Marciano. In 2015 Below System Records released “The South Sac Mack”, their full-length album with Sacramento emcee Chuuwee.

Many many years ago Blurum 13 was on tour with his old group One Self (DJ Vadim, Yarah Bravo & Blurum 13) in Australia, they stopped past Adelaide for a sold-out show at the peak of their debut albums stellar success. A young up and coming beatmaker and mc was at the show, unknown at the time, studying his craft and absorbing the music like a sponge- after the gig they hung out and drank chai tea and talked about their touring life, this struck accord with the young producer and influenced him to work hard at his craft. Years later this unknown producer has made his mark on the beats, boogie and house music seems respectively under the alias Inkswel, working with BBE records and other respected labels and fusing the beats he once nerded out over. One self no longer function and Blurum 13 has been steadily releasing a dope catalog of solo work, fast forward to the internet age of 2016 and the two connected online after mutual respect for each other’s work. Originally starting as a small vibe, the eventual project manifested as the RAINBOWS, BUTTERFLIES and GANGSTAS EP on BeatGeeks Rec.! Raw Hip Hop soul music with an abstract blunted edge.

21 is the well-crafted, sharp and original 1st album by the duo HILA. The combination of jazz, Los Angeles beat-scene and the vibrations of 80s and 90s Soviet Armenia make it a striking and unprecedented fusion. These kind of nostalgic and unconventional references forcefully shake the codes of mainstream culture to create a sincere, raw and intimate expression.

Genre:Hip Hop
The KlapYaHandz label, a long-running labour of love helmed by Sok Visal, has been at the forefront of a revitalization of contemporary Cambodian culture since the beginning of the 21st century; it was the very first independent hip hop label in Cambodia, nurturing an ecosystem of rappers, producers and engineers, male and female, fusing hard-hitting Khmer-language hip hop rhymes with samples of Khmer traditional music and Golden Age hits, propelled by relentless grooves.

Returning to his Cambodian homeland after a youth spent absorbing hip hop in France and the U.S., Visal’s energy and focus inspired a new musical generation; his love of Cambodian music as well as hip hop melded with his ear for jazz, funk and soul, and led to the creation of some very cool music from the artists he brought to his label. The 12 tracks on this CD are the very finest from the first decade of the KlapYaHandz galaxy. Hip hop, yes, but very definitely Cambodian hip hop, with traditional and Golden Age musical elements very prominent. Very cool, very Cambodian, very cosmopolitan, and very contemporary, but the past is always present, a love of musical history lighting the way forward.

Housed in wide jewel case (12mm spine) with 36-page booklet including English liner notes (by Sok Visal and Sorany Var) and lyrics.

Compiled by Sok “Cream” Visal
Mastered by Young-G (stillichimiya / OMK) Cover art by Shinsuke Takagi (Soi48 / OMK).

McGyver is back in 2020 with "CARPE ORBEM" (Latin translation: Seize the World) following up on his 2019 album “MadmatiC”. His bilingual (English and Dutch) rhymes and unique harsh vocal sound, over hardcore boombap beats, topped by live instrumentation and killer scratches prove that there’s not one single artist like him.

This combination creates a stand alone record which conceptually revolves around the classic "The World is Yours" by NaS. Madmatic LP (2019, featuring production by
K-Def, Figub Brazlevic and others) already referenced to this classic once, but now McGyver returns to show the world a bigger picture and capture it while doing so - with even one of NaS - Illmatic’s original producers: Large Professor, on board.

Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
DJ Duch is a project exploring the little-known and hard to come by music of the 1990s from the countries of the Eastern Bloc. The "Labirynt Śmierci" ("A Maze of Death") cassette contains a mix of pieces recorded in Poland between the years 1989-1999. It is a testimony to the sound landscape of the era of political transformation, wild - fledging at that time - capitalism, and the explosion of homegrown creative output that followed.

The fact that until 1994 there was a de facto grey area in Poland in terms of copyrights resulted in a flood of pirate productions, audiotapes and videotapes (often featuring peculiar hand-painted covers similar to the popular Ghanaian film posters), reprints of fantasy and sci-fi literature, which quickly and massively captured the minds and imagination of Poles hungry for new thrills. After the era of continuous shortages in The Polish People's Republic, the citizens of the newly constituted 3rd Republic of Poland were absorbing the previously inaccessible creations of the Western culture, at the same time creating their own reflecting the original in a more or less successful way. It is precisely these "imperfections" typical of the first native approaches to musical genres such as hip-hop, house, techno, italo disco or electronic music in general that DJ Duch has documented in "Labirynt Śmierci".

The tape includes slow trance, early trip-hop, proto-rap, hybrids of disco-polo, ambient, el-muzyka and yass dubbed from rare tapes and CDs. The graphic design provided by Kornel Nurzyński reflects the atmosphere of an era marked with fascination with B-horror movies, cheap literary horror fiction and "hands that heal" type of stories. Over an hour-long recording refers to Olga Drenda's "Duchologia" ("Hauntology") and Wiktor Stribog's "Kraina Grzybów" ("The Land of Mushrooms") as it invites the listener on a nostalgic journey to the 90s, but most of all, it sheds a new light on the music of that period which has now been forgotten and remains underestimated.

Genre:Hip Hop
Mad Soul Legacy presenta il nuovo disco di Silla (DDDictator!) “Metamorfosi” assieme al producer Weirdo, il primo lavoro del rapper col moniker Silla, vero e proprio momento di trasformazione dell'artista milanese. Appassionato di storia e cultura ed estetica classica ama contaminare i suoi testi con riferimenti e immagini del passato per descrivere la sua quotidianità; il tema delle metamorfosi, caro a scrittori antichi e moderni (Ovidio, Apuleio, Kafka) è quanto mai calzante per raccontare non solo un semplice mutamento identitario, ma piuttosto le trasformazioni urbane, politiche e sociali che Silla descrive nei suoi testi. Le produzioni di Weirdo spaziano da sonorità più notturne e fumose, a quelle più incalzanti e carnali, perfette cornici alle immagini descritte dal rapper. Il punto d'unione tra i due artisti è una sonorità boombap fresca e ricercata, cruda ma al contempo stratificata, con featuring di Jack The Smoker (Machete Crew), Dj Lil Cut, Jangy Leeon e Lanz Khan (Mad Soul Legacy) e Benny The Butcher dalla Griselda crew di Buffalo.

Genre:Hip Hop
Never colonized, Thailand has remained purely itself across the years even while developing, evolving and selectively adopting international influences; the same can be said of Thai popular music, and can be clearly heard in previous releases of Thai music on EM Records. Perhaps the exception to this instinct of “pattana” (Thai for development or evolution) has been the luk thung genre, which, despite great forward leaps in the 1960s and 1970s, has been stagnant since the 1990s. New Luk Thung is here, however, as Juu and his friends update the luk thung genre with keyboards, drum machines, and samples from luk thung classics. Contemporary hip hop and trap are fused with luk thung and ramwong elements, as well as the traditional Isan/Lao instruments khaen and phin. Ex-biker Juu has been musically active since the 1990s as a respected rapper, musician and producer, relocating from Bangkok to the musically rich Isan region. His lyrics, in Thai, English, Khmer and Japanese, deal predominantly, humorously and punningly with ganja. New Luk Thung features 10 new tunes, recorded 2017-2019, produced by Juu and Young G (stillichimiya). Vocal guests include G. Jee, Chinza DOPENESS, Dengaryu, MMM, Big Ben, Mr. Maro and Young-G. Songs here include a tribute to Dao Bandon’ s 70s luk thung classic “Man on a Water Buffalo”, a theme song for the mystery group OMK (One Mekong), a cover of a hit from a 1977 film, and other new treats. Available on vinyl and CD with English translations of the lyrics and Soi48’ s liner notes. Cover art by Shinsuke Takagi (Soi48).

Genre:Hip Hop
Claiming Montreal as his new home town, Brussels-born Senz Beats has been building an impressive body of work with underground veterans from both coasts of the US (Dave Dub, Megabusive, E L U C I D...) and beyond. Cappo, Nottingham's very own veteran MC, needs no introduction having already made waves at home and abroad with his impeccable string of solo albums as well as his work with the Nottingham super group VVV.
Here, Senz Beats and Cappo join forces to present a stark reminder of where humanity is headed if we continue to place our values in capitalist ideals. The raw, driving energy of the beat offers the perfect backdrop for Cappo to deliver his warning to those caught up in the materialistic rat-race: the tidal wave is close approaching.
4 experts in their field offer up remixes of this epic track. Boot Records very own Jazz-T (Jehst, Lee Scott, J-Zone...), ex-Def Jux engineer and artist Uncommon Nasa (Vast Aire, Aesop Rock, Mr. Lif...), Lex Boogie From The Bronx (Marq Spekt, Rass Kass, Vordul Mega...), and R.E.D.A. (Insight, Main Flow, M. Sayyid...) each give this track their own distinctive flavour to devastating effect.
Lastly, on the bonus track Fool's Gold, J Lawson echos Cappo's Tidal Wave warnings concerning lusting after riches at the expense of everything else, also produced by Senz Beats. One of the few remaining songs from over 2 years of collaboration roughly 10 years ago, this song has stood the test of time and is ready and eager to be presented to the world.

Based on the principles of the Native Tongues and the Soulquarians they craft soulful, laidback and jazzy hip-hop evoking feelings of summer sunsets, small gatherings of people, Soul-food and inner- city living. It’s easy to hear the influences of early De la Soul and Common on some of their songs, while others would fit in the LA beat scene of Flying Lotus or in the more introspective landscape of Nujabes.

Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Electronic / Dance
Virgin Pool is the new solo moniker of Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Christine Aprile, who makes her debut with the intrepidly captivating Endless Evenings EP out April 19th, 2019. Aprile’s lifelong musical evolution as a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist has led her to a reflective and highly personal incarnation in Virgin Pool. Through the graceful arrangement of acoustic guitar, minimal electronics and layers of softly encompassing vocals, Aprile reckons with the magnificent and turbulent landscape of her own transient world. Her poetic deconstruction of desire and the Self gracefully accentuates the vulnerable tenor of Endless Evenings and cements the arrival of Virgin Pool as a profoundly gifted musician and songwriter.

Raised in suburban Indianapolis by a family of accomplished musicians, Aprile was trained from an early age in classical guitar and singing. She began writing pop songs and ballads in adolescence, but after moving to Cleveland to attend film school, Aprile found herself inspired by the outsider music of the Midwest noise scene. While studying filmmaking, Aprile was compelled to write the scores and produce the sound effects for her own projects, focusing and sharpening her skills with synthesizers and sound design. After graduation, Aprile relocated to Austin and became deeply intertwined in the local music scene that produced bands like Stranger Things/S U R V I V E, Pure X, Sleep∞Over, BOAN and Troller, including fronting the synth-pop duo, Silent Diane. After a few stints on guitar with touring bands, Aprile moved to Los Angeles and reconnected with her love for playing and writing on acoustic guitar. Virgin Pool became her therapeutic outlet for longing and loss, using stripped-down arrangements to gorgeously grapple with her most tempestuous inner struggles.

Endless Evenings is the evocative introduction to the language of Virgin Pool. Through her exquisite abilities and distinct, exploratory lens, Aprile humbly reconstructs the traditions of melody and verse. “Keeping Still” displays her departure from classic song architecture, instead favoring a dramatic journey of consciousness rife with penetrating self-examination. This fluid mental state is held together by nimble guitar work and sculpted ambient embellishments that give her stark method of expression vivid character and honest intimacy. The lyrics of “Sweet Decay” feel like a private conversation with Aprile, revealing a dense set of emotions that are both lucid and abstract. Her remarkable vocal performances throughout the EP are decisively paced to unburden each phrase in tandem with Aprile’s cascading tides of thought and dynamic articulation. Gently floating harmonies rise to heighten the essence of her words and intensify the tension within her own resonant timbre, as Endless Evenings embodies the refuge Aprile seeks. Her acute ear for voicing and production allows Aprile to enrich each song element to further the experience of her music as a whole. This complex balance of depth and design is formed with an intuitive understanding of human flaws and interconnectedness, compelling an instant and spiritual attachment with Virgin Pool.

Suspended between catharsis and remorse, Aprile has carefully crafted a unique identity as Virgin Pool. Her extraordinary convergence of musicianship and talent makes Endless Evenings an unparalleled introduction, compassionately depicting the internal shadow of us all.

Adversus è il titolo del nuovo lavoro della storica formazione rap romana Colle der Fomento. Quattordici tracce con la produzione quasi totale di DJ Craim, eccetto Little Tony Negri e Bassi Maestro su due tracce, e featuring di Kaos e Roy Paci. Un viaggio nella musica, dove il rap incontra il rock, il blues, il jazz e la musica italiana contaminandosi in modo adulto senza snaturarsi. Adversus significa andare contro, pensare in modo contrario, essere in guerra. E la guerra è su tre fronti: contro il nemico che c’è fuori, la società e quello che non ci piace del mondo contemporaneo; la guerra contro il nemico che abbiamo dentro, le paure e l’insicurezza, la depressione; la guerra contro il tempo che passa inesorabile e ci ammala portandoci via affetti e certezze. Un viaggio non solo musicale ma anche umano: quando la maschera si rompe, sotto non ci sono solo due MC, ma due persone con i loro sentimenti, i loro ricordi e i loro sogni: oltre Danno e Masito ci sono Simone e Massimiliano. DJ Craim ha lavorato all’album creando un suono Hip-Hop adulto, che dialoga con altri generi musicali. Utilizzando isample senza ricalcare la vecchia formula del boom bap Anni '90, ma, evolvendo il concetto stesso di musica campionata, Craim ha creato un vero e proprio film sonoro per la band passando da suoni più acidi e hardcore a vere e proprie ballate dal sapore blues. Rispetto alla discografia del passato, Adversus è il disco più personale del Colle, i testi raccontano momenti di vita vissuta, attimi d'introspezione e momenti di confronto. Senza troppi tecnicismi o giochi di parole, una finestra aperta verso il mondo circostante. L'uscita è accompagnata dalla pubblicazione del doppio videoclip Storia di una lunga guerra / Eppure sono qui realizzati da YouNuts! & The ProudAction. L'ambientazione della prima parte descrive uno scenario di guerra, un "fronte di resistenza" all'interno del bosco di Santa Maria Galeria nella periferia di Roma. Nella seconda, invece, l'ambiente diventa una fabbrica abbandonata, dove il trio accompagnato da DJ Craim continua la sua metaforica "guerra" in tenuta militare. La scelta del doppio video da parte della band, è dettata dalla volontà di condividere col pubblico un contenuto più completo del comune standard videoclip. Un accompagnamento visuale che possa coinvolgere al massimo l'ascoltatore accompagnando rime e suoni. Adversus è pubblicato in collaborazione con TAK production e Tuff Kong

I’m not sure what the Portuguese translation for “badass” would be, but it’s a fitting description for the explosive sounds on Sintoniza Lá, the long awaited sophomore album from BNegão & Seletores de Frequência. Carioca MC Bernardo Santos, a.k.a. BNegão, waited nearly a decade to rejoin forces with the band responsible for 2003’s breakout record Enxugando Gelo, among the first albums available via free download in Brazil. Whether Santos really spent those last nine years hard at work in the studio or drinking caipirinhas on the beach is beside the point; Sintoniza Lá is a groove-filled powerhouse that effectively blends dub, hip-hop, R&B, punk and afrobeat.
