Carval Tarek
Nation De La Boue
Tape | 2017 | EU | Original (Editions Gravats)
10,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Next on the cultish Editions Gravats, Low Jack slashes and burns thru a stack of choice french hardtek and dutch/ german gabber selected by his partner in crime, Jean Carval. Dissecting and then stewing the crusty scally sound of late ‘90s continental Europe in its own juices, the results are cooked up into 42 minutes of oblique, pulsating savagery bound to leave bits in your teeth.Swallowing the raver’s spine whole and spitting out the marrow, Nation De La Boueis a severely warped take on an already severe sound, masticating the rotten entrails of classic Cavage and Hangars Liquids-associated acts - UHT, Saoulaterre, Yann Dub, Bambule, No Tek - and transforming them into a disfigured and contorted mind gurn laced with lysergic voices, mutated hyper-rhythms and K-holing trapdoors.If you’ve never heard a 3m tall, 12m wide soundsystem play 200bpm hardcore at 7 in the morning, you basically haven’t lived. However, as that means 99% of folk are effectively just walking dead, this tape offers scant opportunity to actually grasp life by the short and curlies, provided you have the required soundsystem and an abandoned airfield to run amok at daft O’Clock. Although your bedroom and a battered boombox with functioning tape deck will definitely suffice, too.

Diet Cig
Swear I'm Good At This
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Father/Daughter)
12,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Diet Cig are here to have fun. Theyre here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday. Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back. Swear Im Good At This is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-afirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are. Wrapping up Swear Im Good At This on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording Over Easy on Halloween 2014, Diet Cigs first, full-length LP validates the experiences of punks who arent always accepted first time around; the punks who throw their deuces up at the dominating bro-dudes and ignite the importance of owning everything that you are.

El Michels Affair
Return To The 37th Chamber
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Get On Down)
17,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The wait is over, Return To The 37th Chamber is El Michels Affair’s highly anticipated follow up to 2009's underground cult classic Enterthe 37th Chamber. Churning out classic records since then for the likes of Lee Fields, The Arcs, The Shacks, and tons more, it is clear thatEMA's signature sound is stronger & sharper than ever.This time, in addition to re-interpreting the Wu compositions for a live band, EMA pays homage to the production and sonic fog thatmakes a RZA beat so recognizable. Producer and bandleader Leon Michels recorded the album completely analog, sometimes hitting 6generations of tape before it was ready for mixing, giving the Return to The 37th Chamber it’s own hazy sound. Adding to the uniquefidelity, the record is laced with psychedelic flourishes, “John Carpenter” synths, heavy metal guitars, triumphant horns, and traditionalChinese instruments that make up for the lack of the Wu’s superlative vocals. From start to finish it’s a dark trip that walks the linebetween RZA’s timeless hip-hop aesthetic and the cinematic soul EMA has become known for.El Michels Affair tackles some classics like 4th Chamber and Wu Tang Aint Nuthin to Fuck Wit, as well as some deeper cuts like Ol DirtyBastard’s Snakes, Raekwon’s Verbal Intercourse, and Shaolin Brew, Wu-Tang’s contribution to the St. Ide’s Hip Hop endorsementcampaign from 1994. This time El Michels brings some of the Big Crown family along for the ride. Lee Fields handles vocal duties onSnakes and is joined by Shannon Wise of The Shacks for their version of Tearz, which pays as much homage to the Wendy Rene sampleas it does to the Wu-Tang Clan. Lady Wray makes an appearance on the cover of Method Man’s hit, All I Need, lending her vocal prowessto what gave the Wu one of their biggest hits of all time. Interspersed throughout the record are some original interludes that are like the“rug that ties the room together,” giving Return To The 37th Chamber a cinematic narrative that makes it a proper El Michels Affair recordand not just a collection of covers.From the music to the presentation, this album is a perfect example of what can only be achieved through diversity. The end result is asmuch a kaleidoscope of influences and multiculturalism as the city it was recorded in. El Michels Affair is once again, “sounding out thecity” that raised them, pulling elements of art and culture from across the country and around the globe to create an album truly uniquein it’s own right.

K.A.A.N. & Klaus Layer
Abstractions
Tape | 2017 | US | Original (Redefinition)
13,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
"Abstractions" is an international collaboration featuring Maryland’s lyricist extraordinaire, K.A.A.N. going in with his signature machine-gun-flow over some of German producer Klaus Layer’s most unique soundscapes to date. Hip-Hop as a genre is big on labels and while many might consider the musical styles demonstrated on here to be “boom-bap” inspired with a side of “lyrical miracle,” there’s more than meets the ear happening here. The project is brief but thanks to the dense layers of both music and introspective wordplay crafted by the artists, listening to "Abstractions" is a very rewarding experience. The two first collaborated on the deep cut, Sleepy Hollow People, from Layer’s Society Collapse LP in 2016. Out of mutual interests and positive fanfare, a whole EP was recorded shortly afterward. Hearing K.A.A.N. rap is a treat for rap connoisseurs as he dynamically delivers complex rhymes with a rare energy, rivaling even the best veteran MCs of yesterday and today. Klaus Layer is no slouch either when it comes to sound design. Evident by the fact that he has become a fixture amongst some of Hip hop's best European imports; his records fly off shelves and he can be found frequently performing in smoky Jazz clubs from France to Moscow and beyond. Known for his viral youtube MPC performances and releasing critically acclaimed instrumental albums year after year since his Redef debut in 2013, "Abstractions" is the first Klaus project to exclusively feature a rapper over his sought after sound. Instrumentals are included on the b-side. To date, both artists have found incredible success respectively that continues to grow (K.A.A.N. notably has recently relocated to Los Angeles but we are not at liberty to disclose any of the prescriptions he’s been writing… *Cough*). On "Abstractions", K.A.A.N. effortlessly proves why he's one of the premiere up and coming MC's adding to his growing back catalog that boasts millions of streams throughout every major online platform. At a time when the world seems to be showing prominent signs of division, it's a record like this that is an example of how music brings people from all races and all corners of the world together. Despite being separated by the Atlantic across two continents, speaking separate languages and living under different government systems, K.A.A.N. and Klaus Layer's Abstractions shows no boundaries exist when great minds unit. It's bigger than hip hop.

Genre:Hip Hop
“Developing the brain, always measure the aim, feeling pleasant in the present things could never be the same.” - InsightWith great excitement, Redefinition Records is proud to release the latest project from one of hip hop's most multi-talented artists. Making his Redefinition Records feature album debut, Insight the Truncator aka Andre Todman returns to the spotlight with a new album after a departure from the industry in recent years. Where was he and what was he up to? Well after a decade and a half in the business, dozens of respected records, countless national and international tours, Insight took a well-deserved hiatus to try other endeavors such as app development, electronics and social media strategizing in which he found major success. This shouldn't surprise longtime fans who may remember in as early as 1997, Insight created his own website, Insight.fm which even featured an interactive SP1200 and forums. (pre-social media and long before having a web presence was was on most artist’s agendas). Building a strong reputation for his live performance, his on-stage capabilities included not only rapping, but also producing, DJing and simultaneous live drawing. The triple threat from Boston (MC, DJ and producer) has dedicated his life to his creativity and name, catalog and content are a true testament to the kind person Insight is on and off of his recordings. Credited for mentoring and being instrumental in the career beginnings of many of today's staples in Boston Hip Hop and beyond, he also assisted a young D.C. native Damu the Fudgemunk, who later matured into an esteemed solo artist in his own right (and co-owner of Redefinition records). The 2 would first collaborate on one of the greatest hip hop albums of the 2000's as Y Society on 2007's full length, Travel at Your Own Pace. As a result, they formed a brotherhood that today is well into its second decade, bookmarked by this latest release. On Ears Hear Spears, “The Truncator” passionately speaks his mind through rhyme as The Fudgemunk handles all production. Insight offered the following thoughts about the album: "Ears Hear Spears is a milestone in my life that reflects an intersection of so many paths. I had been living in Berlin and was frequently touring at the time for a 4-year stretch. I was just preparing to move back to the US. It was ’07 and the first generation iPhone was released so I started getting into app development, as the music industry was very rapidly changing. As an American under the Bush presidency, I had a lot on my mind. I had only met Damu once at a show in 2004, but we kept in contact for several years prior to our first collaboration. He called me with an album concept and a potential deal with Tres Records. I was on board and felt a responsibility to honestly express myself. We turned in Ears, however, we were shut down at the time by the label (Tres Records, now defunct). They simply said that this album was not what they wanted and expected from us. Damu and I only took about 10 days to do it, but instead of revising it, we shelved it. We quickly recorded a whole new album for label approval (Travel At Your Own Pace). Travel was released and time went on. Over the years, Ears became foreign to me. It got to a point where it seemed like my past speaking to my present. The album discusses the importance of togetherness, using your mind, not being manipulated by the music industry to represent ignorance and yet maintain rawness. Opportunities were limited due to the content in which some suggested was irrelevant and unmarketable. As time progressed, inequality, racism and ignorance moved to the forefront; dominating news and the rising usage of social media. This album became more relevant as time went by. It feels as if it is a duty to release it, before I release the new projects I have planned for the near future. Rather than just point out the negative, hopefully it can help us to find ways to cope and move our mind to a better place." InsightEars Hear Spears is the full-length counterpart to Insight & Damu’s 45 single "Know the Meaning” Remix. Considering the state of the world as we know it today, Insight’s lyrics couldn't possibly be any more relevant and timely than they are right now. This is especially notable being that the album was initially recorded in ’07 (it was unreleased until now). Throughout 10 outstanding tracks Insight delivers a diverse lyrical exhibition over a then 20-21 year old Damu the Fudgemunk's beats. There's an undeniable level of directness and sincerity in his lyrics which are artfully assembled in a manner that will astonish literary buffs, yet permeate the lives of everyday listeners alike.

Cariño is BodyMoves' most ambitious release to date. An 18 track beat tape that contains a diverse mixture of beats crafted over the last four years.

The EP takes cues from South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, classic soul, jazz, funk, library music and obscure TV audio into a 28 minute long beat journey. The album title was inspired by the birth of the artist's son in April 2016.The music has respectful nods towards a diverse range of beatmakers, from Al Dobson Jr. to Flying Lotus to Tuamie and has been mastered by Will Horrocks of LV fame. The stunning artwork is a specially commissioned piece by artist Emily Evans. Emily has previously designed artwork for Paul White, Mr Beatnick and Broshuda.Cassette releases are enjoying a renaissance of late, and true to hip hop culture this beat tape will be released on a strictly limited run of 50 blood red cassettes, and also includes a digital download."Cariño" follows up on BodyMoves' recent collaborative EP "Dual Thought" with Tom Central. Both are released on Shapes Of Rhythm Records, a burgeoning label he runs himself, alongside Tom.BodyMoves has been rising steadily on the scene over the last few years.

“Is this field recordings of scorpion mating dances, a recovered audio file of NASA ’s evidence of Saturn’s fauna frequencies or perhaps a hot new Tokyo game soundtrack for carving virtual sculptures? None of the above. It’s a continuation of Idaho Joe Windslow’s personal research into the combination of electronic processing with the natural sounds of his homemade acoustic instrumentation like the ‘Gongtar’, cut up singing bowls and tweaked voice resonators. The Bay Area musician has diverged from his previous verse-chorus-verse confessionals into a deeply strange symphonic galactic suite entitled ‘Urban Hiker’ that’s reminiscent of cross-pollinated standard-bearers like Aphex Twin, Harry Partch and Jon Hassell.

After many years as half of the highly influential Skaters with James Ferraro, 2 solo albums on Olde English Spelling Bee (Black Joker and Monopoly Child Star Searchers) and countless tapes and CDs, Spencer Clark has taken it to the next level. Layers of cosmic and alien sounds inhabit their own world and act as metaphors you can access subconsciously or explicitly. Clearer and more lucid than previous releases of his, this is a singular record of inner space exploration that operates completely outside the retro kraut-new age-synth trend so prevalent right now. Being more hi-fi than his past recordings, Spencer says ‘I have made an Alien Space Fusion Music that is an Aural Symbol for the pre-birth outer space-self's new Arrival.’ In this new zone, Spencer channels a more personal and spacious side of his vision, combining the rhythmic side of Monopoly Child with the abstractions of his Vodka Soap project. It stands as his biggest statement yet and will surprise and please. A beautiful record. Now it's yours to explore.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
"Weird Woman's 'Blaztech' feels like the soundtrack for a gang of teenage skeletons gathered around a slowly stirred hissing cauldron in their parents' basement, performing secret pubescent skeleton rites. This is basement music, music for twilight, music by which the teen skeletons may stir their skeleton dreams, and desires, into the pot's black iron. This is music akin to the bubbles that rise slowly to the surface and gently burst on the skin of the contents; Minimal rhythms form a spine for each piece draped with striped hides of droning loops of indeterminate origin, bleeding veins of static feedback, alien glossolalia, spidery webs of melodic figure, dead-dry sounds of arcane hand instruments, a granule of grindcore records, and dumb field recordings. Like whatever horrible potion gurgles within the skeleton's cauldron, these disparate ingredients come together in the heat of their crucible to form a singular whole that serves a common purpose. Within the stew, the sounds wind around one another sometimes achieving a mesmerizing harmony while at other times they incite hideous friction, sounding as though they are choking one another out. Thus, like any good sorcerer's brew, this music does contain paradox and drama in service of some greater and mysterious purpose. The tension of this music, its darkened mood, is achieved not through a feral chaos or a harsh, overblown intensity of timbre, but rather through the careful choice of ingredient– each one added to the hissing whole in the proper amount, at the proper time, by the root-white tips of the skeletons' finger bones. - Lt. Johnson for Psychic Sounds Research"Produced & recorded by Corum

Big Crown Records is proud to launch Big Crown Radio, our label curated podcast of DJ mixes. First up, our own Danny Akalepse takes us for a listen to his Impressions of Impressions Part 1 mix, paying tribute to The Impressions with a mix of Soul & Rock covers of their tunes. To celebrate the launch of the podcast we pressed up a limited edition cassette tape of Impressions of Impressions Part 1 and the forthcoming Part 2 (all reggae covers of Impressions tunes). Expect to hear mixes from Big Crown artists as well as a ton of heavy weight DJs and record collectors that we are happy to call friends and colleagues. From Danny:“The Impressions, as Curtis, Fred, and Sam are one of my favorite groups ever. I’m really into collecting covers, I have been at it for a long time. I came up with the title for these two mixes and that really got me going, from the artwork to the tunes I really like the way this came out and it seemed fitting to commit it to a tape, two sides worked really well for the genres. This project definitely sent me on a trip digging and digging for more versions to add to what I already had, and I had to leave off some killers so I wouldn’t repeat songs. Some of the records on here aren’t straight covers but tunes that someone jacked Impressions melodies and arrangements and wrote their own verses over them. At the end of the day this mix has a heady level to it, but I am hoping that even with no context at all, and for people who don’t know who The Impressions are it will still be a good listen just the same. Curtis is a god in reggae, there’s way too many covers to get onto one mix, so I pulled some of the more known ones and some of the more obscure. I collect a lot of reggae records, something most folks don’t know me for, this is the first time I am releasing a reggae mix publicly. I hope everyone enjoys the vibe”.

Only one copy per customer of this limited cassette edition of 50 copies!KingUnderground presents the debut album - Instrumental beat tapes Volume 1-2, produced in 2008-2009 from Swedish producer Sun Raw aka SRAW.The ”Beat Week” concept came about in 2008 when Myspace still was the main internet platform for spreading independent music. SRAW wanted to use the social media platform to his advantage and make a release that was adapted to the specific ways of posting music and maintaining an audience on Myspace. He came up with the idea to publish one song a day for the duration of a week so that it would exist as a whole in the Myspace player after the week had passed. The beats were simply named after the day it was published, making the final beat tape hold 7 tracks. Beat Week #1 was received very well so a year later Beat Week #2 was released in the same way. Around this time Myspace had lost most users to Facebook, and Soundcloud slowly began to take over as the new platform for musicians.“I guess this is my tribute to the (for many of us) important MySpace days!” - SRAW

New Los Angeles Records presents the Tape version of the debut album “The Tractatus” from Los Angeles producer Kone, who recently signed to Alpha Pub Records.The album title “The Tractatus” refers to an important philosophical work of language and logic by Ludwig Wittgenstein, and the music is an interpretation of this idea, subtly a celebration of life.Kone’s unique blend of "psychedelic gangster funk" contains equal parts assembly of samples, heavy fluid basslines, signature big dirty drums and sinewy synths that recall the early days of Los Angeles rap, without being derivative. This is modern beat music, freed from any constraints to a particular sound. His music walks the fine line between the electronic and organic, drawing on influences from American jazz to Mongolian folk and Hungarian psyche; vinyl diggers will have a fun time trying to put this album back together.

With her soft, breathy voice and casual but effective phrasing, Nelson has a perfect instrument for smart, dreamy indie pop, but keep an ear peeled for her lyrics, and you'll quickly discover Nelson has a good head on her shoulders, has been around the block a time or two, and will only put up with other folks' nonesense for so long." -AllMusic

Live From Concrete Island is the debut album from Brighton based producer Stephen Maskell, aka The Nag's Head. Taking material from the last four years, he's created a head-spinning tapestry of melodic techno and crushed cityscapes. Like Echospace, Maskell's "destroyed" visions nail the feeling of being a stranger in a strange land. For the city's lolloping, dubby percussion we reach deep into its guts, pulling out a squiggly bricolage of pistons, pool balls, window frames, jets of steam. In turns rasping and narcotic, Concrete Island's beatless sections are akin to the crunching menace of early Clark, or Murcof's cosmic space treatments. An occasional shimmer guitar pop gem emerges from the rubble.

Aptly titled, “1996 Beat Tape Vol. 1”, DJ Spinna’s latest instrumental album features 18 original beats all produced on the EMU-SP1200 & Akai S950 circa 1996. With over 25 years in business, the Brooklyn native is tied to nothing short of greatness and a legacy of diverse extensions since his beginnings as a house DJ in the late 80s. Many know Spinna for being in the elite group of seasoned party rockers where his resume includes collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee, Michael Jackson & Prince (Soul Slam) tribute parties and several US/international bookings a month. Others regard him as one of house music’s best for his well-orchestrated dance tracks that blend jazz, soul & funk, Caribbean and Latin themes into his trademark, “Intergalactic Soul”.Producing in the mid 90’s with his underground duo, the Jigmastas, Spinna acquired national recognition for remixing Das EFX’s, “Microphone Master” single. He would gain larger recognition for his classic remix of De La Soul’s, “Stakes Iz High” single originally produced by the legendary Jay Dee aka J Dilla who became a friend in addition to being a contemporary. After a deal with Rawkus Records and producing some of Eminem’s early official appearances, Spinna achieved placements as a go to beat maker for legends, veterans and new MC’s. Though DJ Spinna has found continued success away from his roots, he has always satisfied his core audience whether producing for Homeboy Sandman, Phonte, The Jigmastas or his own solo projects.”1996 Beat Tape Vol. 1” is a rare peek into his deep archive. Much of the material was sourced directly from aged DAT tapes and floppy disks from the year 1996.Don’t let the 20-year lapse mislead that these compositions are primitive to today’s standards. The 18-track fully instrumental LP proves the advanced production techniques and sampling ideas Spinna employed are still ahead of its time long before much of the resurgence of 90s revivalist themes from today’s artists. The “1996 beat Tape” is the “Real McCoy”. All music was produced before computers, before accessible home studios and before instrumental hip-hop was a category. Many of the beats were made with vocalists in mind. Constructed on turntables, the EMU-SP1200 and the Akai S950, historians will appreciate the album cover designed by Joe Buck which depicts intimate photos of Spinna in his studio with the actual gear used to create the album’s contents. This is only the first volume and the debut venture between Redefinition Records and Spinna’s own Correct Technique Records. With 2 plus decades of unreleased material, who knows what the future holds, but history shows that when DJ Spinna releases an instrumental album, they sell fast.

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

Zu Beginn war das Projekt der beiden nur eine Schnapsidee a la "Komm wir nehmen jetzt mal ‘nen paar Songs auf und hauen die einfach so raus“. In einer spontanen Recording-Session entstanden eine Hand voll Tracks, die ohne große Ankündigung ins Netz gestellt wurden. Das war 2010. Zwei Jahre später erschien die gemeinsame LP „JETZT NOCH KRASZER“. Aus selbstlosen Motiven – nur, um Rap-Deutschland eine Auszeit von dieser Dosis kraszesten Materials zu geben – folgte eine fünfjährige Funkstille, in der sich beide Artists ihren eigenen Projekten widmeten: PIERRE SONALITY gründete ein Label, veröffentlichte Alben mit den Funkverteidigern, dem Sendemast, den Zampanos und im Alleingang und produzierte unter anderem für Plusmacher und GALV. Währenddessen bereiste DOZ9 mit Schaufel&Spaten die Lande und veröffentlichte mit Torky Tork als T9 zwei Alben. Schließlich traf man sich dort wieder, wo alles seinen Anfang genommen hatte: Im Studio. Die dort entstandenen 13 Tracks geben den Status Quo des musikalischen Schaffens von Alexander und Marcus deutlich wieder: Von Brettern, die so rau sind, dass du dich vor Splittern schützen solltest, über gediegene Kiff-Synthies der westcoastigeren Art bis hin zu Experimenten wie der Auskopplung „Ca2“ mit GALV bietet „ALEXANDER MARCUS“ das arithmetische Mittel zwischen künstlerischer Intensität und purem Swag. Die Beats wurden größtenteils von den beiden Jungs zusammen gebaut, einige Nummern haben LUKUTZ und BABA ZART beigesteuert.
