Official Metalface Version, including the “Occult Hymn” EP available on vinyl for the first time, and two previously unreleased tracks.Back in 2005, super producer Danger Mouse and masked hip hop supervillain DOOM came together for “The Mouse And The Mask”, a collaborative album released under the name Dangerdoom. Among DOOM’s most successful projects both critically and commercially, the album was inspired by Cartoon Network’s late-night Adult Swim programming slate, and includes appearances from several Adult Swim characters, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Harvey Birdman, and more. “The Mouse And The Mask” also features guest spots from Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, and Cee Lo Green. This deluxe 3xLP vinyl reissue courtesy of DOOM’s own label Metalface Records also contains several bonus cuts not on the original album.

Time waits for no man, but venerable New York emcee and producer Roc Marci remains a rare exception to the rule. Enchanting listeners with his dexterous lyricism, methodically soulful beats, and steely persona on releases like 2010's critically-acclaimed Marcberg, and his revered 2012 effort, Reloaded, the pride of Hempstead, Long Island emerges from the shadows after a three-year hiatus with the equally spellbinding Rosebudd's Revenge. This is the rapper's fourth studio album. Aside from appearances on landmark releases, including De La Soul's Grammy-nominated And the Anonymous Nobody, and Ka's Days With Dr. Yen Lo, Roc Marci's presence has been scarce, making Rosebudd's Revenge one of the more anticipated hip-hop releases of 2017.Enlisting his band of collaborators to join him on every song on his last release, Roc Marci flips the script on his latest offering. Rosebudd’s Revenge’s lone features are frequent collaborators: Brownsville emcee Ka on the epic sparring session ""Marksmen,"" and Knowledge The Pirate on ""No Smoke."" This uncluttered lineup gives Roc Marci ample space to deliver his tales from the strip. Key selections from Rosebudd's Revenge include the suave, keyboard-laden affair ""Better Know,"" ""Killing Time,"" ""Pig Knuckles,"" and the hard-boiled title-track, and boasts musings that rank among the best of Roc Marci's tenured run.Spilling his fluid flow over production from the likes of Grammy-nominated producer Knxwledge, as well as George Paulin, Animoss, Don C, Modus Op, and himself, Roc Marci reaffirms his placement on the musical avant garde and standing as one of hip-hop's preeminent lyricists on Rosebudd's Revenge, a defining effort that will leave fans salivating for more.

Found in a basement nearly twenty years after they were recorded,these demos show Camp Lo at their finest, and represent that true 1990s hip hopflavor, On The Way Uptown.

Coalmine Records is excited to announce the limited-edition vinyl release of the Artifacts’ highly regarded 2012 single, “Easter,” which marked the group’s first official release in more than 15 years.Initially released as a digital single on April 3, 2012 (the Tuesday before Easter Sunday), the track later appeared on Coalmine’s decennary compilation, ‘Unearthed,’ which dropped May 13, 2014.However you heard it, one thing was very clear: despite their time apart, Tame One and El Da Sensei sounded as fresh as ever. The New Jersey rappers’ venomous flows are boosted by the neck-breaking production of acclaimed North Carolina producer Khrysis. Making the cipher complete is the turntable work of DJ Dutchmaster, who provides the scratch hook and outro cuts.With this release, “Easter” makes its grand return in the physical form in a limited-edition white vinyl pressing that also includes the instrumental track on the flip. It also takes things back to the old school by way of a front jacket hole that exposes the label (the heads know what’s up).

Long Beach serial chiller Ahwlee is a beat vet who delivers smooth buttery samples with a nostalgic vibe. 1991 is a cult classic cassette now issued for the first time on vinyl. These tracks are dusty, mellow and easy-going. Don’t mistake mellow for boring, however, because Ahwlee’s production is nuanced and intricate underneath the minimalist overtones. There’s jazzed-up Rhodes all over the place, and the percussion work masterfully includes a ton of negative space in between perfectly chopped breaks. They’ll get your head nodding.

“On my last couple of albums I challenged myself with regard to formats, trying to push the envelope as far as what exactly constitutes a rap record. ‘Talking (Bleep)’ and ‘Problems’ were my last two lead singles, both markedly unconventional. I adore both of those songs and I adore both of those albums specifically for the new creative fulfillment I enjoyed while making them. There’s much more of that to come, but after spending 3 years outside of the box I was left with a burning desire to just fuckin rhyme. That’s Veins.” - Homeboy Sandman

Rightfully dramatic orchestral strings give way to bluesy rhythmic wah-wah guitar plucking, slightly cabaret-ish piano, pitch bending keys, and a totally sultry sax. The percussion sounds like signature Alizadeh with a flickering hat pattern, well placed snare rolls, and punchy interplay with the kick.

Limited edition of 500 copies!Amsterdam based Kid Sublime (BBE Records) had a first row seat to everything HipHop having spent years working at the Fat Beats store in Amsterdam. While being able to meet most of his heroes in underground rap at the time, one of his favorites was the group Maspyke who dropped a number of well received 12’s in the late 90s and early 2000’s.As Kid Sublime’s music repertoire ventured in and out of rap world, one of his loves remains hiphop. As luck would have it, both Sublime and Tableek had projects for Faces Records (France), and the label head Pablo felt it would be dope to get Kid Sublime and Tableek to meet up during a tour date in Amsterdam. It was during this first meeting that they recorded the first banger “Rulez” in record time, and the conversation for more was set.Subsequent visits to Holland by Tableek led to “A Deepest Blue”. With this recording Sublime brings a DJ sensibility, a high admiration and understanding of making beats “swing” and technical skill to bring that gritty NY soulful hiphop sound that Gangstarr, De La Soul, and other classic acts pioneered. In turn Tableek chose and molded the music to fit the mood, picked sounds that paint a colorful canvas, and devised songs that reflect on what artists are meant to do: provoke thought and inspire.“A Deepest Blue Blue” is not meant to be a dark “fantasy”. Instead it is a proclamation of depth, stability, truth, and loyalty, Stay tuned.

"Singing was always a big passion for me..I was always fascinated at all the acrobatic vocal runs some singers do with their voice. To me it's an athletic thing and I definitely see myself as a vocal athlete..and for that deeper understanding of my voice that I now have I have to thank my vocal coach Betty Lane. She literally helped me to push out the voice that had been waiting there for years, ready to come out, like "John use me, I'm your voice" and It was always a goal of mine to make a project that showcases my singing. I see myself as a singer songwriter first, I just grew up in the generation of rap, so the 2 styles just fused together naturally. I started writing poems around 8 or 9 years old, then songs, and then raps. I eventually put it all together…22 years later...the journey to my heart , through all the ups and downs of my career trying to discover my voice, who I am, all my travels around the globe. It all leads back to Home, in the most literal sense. The house I’m sitting in front of on the video for "Home" is the house my parents brought me home to as a baby. So for me it’s like going back to the original source, the original purpose. That purpose for me is to sing. That's why this album is so special for me...and Calvin made the perfect soundtrack for me to take you on a soulful stroll through my hometown, Detroit Michigan aka Motown. Hope you enjoy! As Dank would say.."Bless up!!!!!!!!""Illa J

The album is named for the combs used to maintain an Afro hairstyle, and that’s significant. The group’s Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler said it summed up what they wanted to do with it: ""It means the utilization of the natural, a natural style,” he has said.Like with 1993’s debut Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space), ‘utilizing the natural’ meant creating hip hop that blended jazz with the formidable rap skills of the aforementioned Butterfly, Craig ‘Doodlebug’ Irving and Mary Ann ‘Ladybug Mecca’ Vieira. Unlike that debut, it meant broadening to include guests such as Gang Starr’s Guru, Jeru the Damaja, and Jazzy Joyce.Following the gold-selling commercial success of their debut, they here set out to prove their artistic prowess. This is intelligent, alternative hip hop that sounded like party music. Its lyrics are dense with wit, social commentary and politics – and its original inner sleeve was modeled on the newspaper of the Black Panther movement.Its instrumentation includes sax, vibraphone and flute. Its samples – gathered from global cratedigging trips while touring the first album around the world – included Grant Green, Eddie Harris, Shuggie Otis and jazz-funk pioneer Roy Ayers (whose “We Live in Brooklyn, Baby” became “Borough Check” here). And yet at the same time its beats are infectious and its spirit undeniable.This is an album firmly rooted in Brooklyn. “Growing up hearing and cherishing this album, it created a textured soundscape of a mythical world of rhymes, jazz, breakbeats, culture, art and urban ambiance,” says DJ and fan Mick Boogie in the liner notes. “When I moved to Brooklyn years later, I found that the world I imagined while listening to this classic LP actually really existed…”Though Digable Planets have reunited on occasion since – and though their influence endures in every top-shelf rap act with a jazzy sensibility – the trio parted ways after Blowout Comb, citing that old favorite ""creative differences”. Sometimes, the most volatile combinations create the best art.

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee's new album 'The Iceberg' is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, 'The Iceberg' is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick R&B and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.

Official Army Of The Pharaohs and Demigodz emcee Blacastan has been steadily staking his claim to the title of ‘savior of underground rap music’ since his debut mixtape Me Against The Radio and its key cut and video "Life Of A Tape" became an underground cult classic in 2007. The rapper turned his attention to the mic after the Hartford, CT street life, and his strong-arm style of handling business, left a then 16-year-old Blacastan serving a bid in the mid-'90s. He emerged from prison with a remarkable skill set, a throwback style, and an unrivaled drive.His 2010 debut album Blac Sabbath boasted production & vocals from the likes of Statik Selektah, Blue Sky Black Death, Mr. Green, Esoteric and Celph Titled, and 2012’s The Master Builder Part II, which was mixed by legendary DJ Doo Wop, had features from Slaine and Reef the Lost Cauze, among others. He has since also racked up appearances on Jedi Mind Tricks Violence Begets Violence, the Army of The Pharaohs albums In Death Reborn and Heavy Lies The Crown, the Demigodz Killmatic album, Apathy’s Wanna Snuggle?, Mr Lif’s Don’t Look Down and Czarface’s A Fistful of Peril, plus toured extensively across Europe, North America, and Australia with Celph Titled and Block McCloud.2014 saw Blac teaming up with producer and longtime AOTP and Demigodz collaborator Stu Bangas for the first installment of Watson & Holmes, which featured Esoteric, Apathy, Celph Titled and Vinnie Paz. Stu has been in the trenches since the early 2000s, producing heatrocks for Slaine, Esoteric, Tragedy Khadafi, Heltah Skeltah, Jedi Mind Tricks, Vinnie Paz, Blaq Poet, Copywrite, Chino XL, Cappadonna, AOTP and Sean Price, including the lead single “Definition of God” from Sean Price's upcoming posthumous album Imperius Rex.The duo is back with The Uncanny Adventures of Watson & Holmes, a sophomore effort that improves on the first in every way.

Plus, they’ve enlisted Ill Bill (Non-Phixion, LaCoka Nostra), Nutso, Apathy (Demigodz, AOTP) 7L & Esoteric (AOTP, Czarface), and Tragedy Khadafi to lend their talents to the project.

Following last year’s out-of-nowhere debut album, The Du-Rites (an NYC funk duo comprised of multi-instrumentalists J-Zone and Pablo Martin) return with a new double-sided snack, “Bite It” b/w “Bocho’s Groove”.Individually, J-Zone and Pablo are known for their exploits as a hip-hop producer/MC and the guitarist in the current line-up of the legendary Tom Tom Club, respectively. But as they continue their roll as The Du-Rites with this release and their forthcoming sophomore LP, Greasy Listening, their divergent backgrounds continue to cook up a brand of funk that’s entirely their own. “Bite It” - with drummer J-Zone’s numerous (and super funky) open drum breaks and organ riffs and Pablo’s blistering psychedelic guitar solo - is an example of hip-hop and psych throwing a greasy funk party and The Meters show up to crash it. The flip, “Bocho’s Groove,” raises the tempo for the dance floor, but the funk is no less heavy. Zone keeps the sticks flying with the b-boys and girls in mind, comps with the organ and peppers in his trademark dialogue cuts, while Pablo’s Fender Rhodes and guitar work evoke the funkier moments of ‘70s cop show scores.The Du-Rites self-titled debut LP (on ReDefinition Records) sold through its limited 500 pressing in one month. This single has been pressed in the same quantity. If you snooze, you lose, dig?!

Prince Paul hit Chopped Herring up to release this dope early 90's project!!The first incarnation of the group was formed around 1989 in Amityville, Long Island, New York, although the family grew up in Long Island. The family of four brothers (Anthony, Richard, Joel, and Edward) and one sister (Dawne), of which Anthony (Poetic) was the eldest, were born to Trinidadian parents who moved from Trinidad and Tobago in 1971, making their first residence in Queens, New York for a short time, then moving to Long Island. John Berkeley (a pastor and a local businessman) and Ela Berkeley (a homemaker, cook-nutritionist, and teacher) were both singers and artistic in general, and they encouraged artistic expression in their five children. The family was well-rounded musically, singing gospel and R&B up to their early teens all around New York, other states, and Canada as "The Berkeley Singers". Anthony (Poetic), Dawne, and Joel (Brainstorm) sang, accompanied by Richard on the drums and Eddie (E-Sharp) on the piano or keyboard.Poetic began rhyming in his early teens in Wyandanch, and was known by many names and building a name for himself as a lyrical battle MC. He changed his name to Poetic around 1985, and in 1986 he formed the crew known as Too Poetic, who in 1988-89 released a modestly popular single called: “God Made Me Funky/Poetical Terror”, under the DNA/Tommy Boy Music imprint. The group’s relationship with Tommy Boy Records eventually panned out for various reasons, scrapping the album and making Poetic very displeased, an early casualty of the politics of the music business. While Poetic was just beginning his formal hip hop career in 1987–89, Brainstorm was attending college at the State University of New York at Farmingdale, Long Island, where he was the roommate of Brooklyn’s own Super DJ Richie Rich (who had been in Third Base, Clark Kent’s Supermen, and the movie Juice). The university was host to many hip hop artists as visitors for parties and to do shows like Rakim, EPMD, Producer-Super DJ Clark Kent, and Biz Markie.After Brainstorm finished his college run in 1989, he took time to learn many aspects of the music business, but in 1989 he and Poetic mutually decided to pair up with a hardcore lyrical edge, original word play, and acute metaphors, after many collaborations between them since 1985. Thus, Da Bruthas G.R.Y.M. was born shortly after Too Poetic’s deal with DNA/Tommy Boy had soured. The energy and high chemistry between these true by-blood brothers at the time was, simply put, natural.In the first Bruthas G.R.Y.M. era (c. 1989–1992), the brothers Poetic (Brother One) and Brainstorm (Brother Two) garnered much respect on the underground hip hop scene of New York Their first official demo featured the underground bangers like “Bruthas G.R.Y.M.”, “Circle-Circle-Dot-Dot”, the politically charged “Popcorn” and “Livin’ In Hell (Had To Survive)”. The demo featured production mastering by Nate "NATO" Tinsley, their in-house producer Semi-Automatic (Pedro Sims, Mr. Semi, Gravediggaz), and the brothers themselves. After blazing underground radio and live shows around New York City, they were listed in The Source magazine as the best unsigned rap group of 1989. The crew was then managed by longtime friend Jack Pope (Jack Sprat, Starving Artists Entertainment), who later became the road manager of the Gravediggaz. These cassette tape “dubs” floated around the New York streets in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and their demo eventually made their way to the seasoned musical ear of fellow Amityvillain Prince Paul (Stetsasonic, De La Soul, Gravediggaz) from his association with the local Long Island artists who had met the brothers and saw their raw talent. In 1990 Prince Paul decided to fund and executive produce further demos, finding various other known and up-and-coming producers for the unnamed project, as well as being the tentative DJ for the group.Then the unfortunate happened – being disenfranchised by the politics and games of the music business and life in general, Brainstorm just quit altogether for “personal enlightenment”, before any formal deal could solidify. Poetic understood about Brainstorm’s personal path at that stage in his life, but was silently devastated because they were so close to sealing a major record deal that would have propelled them further into Hip Hop history. Their original demo, even today, is still one of Prince Paul’s favorites. It was not until 1992 that Poetic, after Brainstorm quit in 1991, that it is said that Poetic “fell on hard times”, including a short period of homelessness. Brainstorm would continue to write for leisure and therapeutic reasoning, but never to seriously pursue a music career, moving to Brooklyn New York and later down south to various states; in fact, Brainstorm was so “finished with Hip Hop” that he gave Poetic all of his original rhyme books to use at his own discretion – some lyrics ending up on Gravediggaz projects.

‘Molotov’ represents the best elements of its creators, Brooklyn rapper, Saga and Chicago producer, Thelonious Martin. The rhymes are potent and powerful, taking down everyone from cynics to haters, wack emcees, and inner demons. And the instrumentals serve to bring those words to life by way of head-nodding percussion, and slick sample flips.Because it was crafted by one rapper and one producer, ‘Molotov’ is especially effective, and have made it clear why their approach works so well, especially as a duo. The 12 tracks move in and out of each other seamlessly, while tackling a variety of sounds and subject matter, all with an effective supporting cast of notable features. Like the one-two punch of the straight-up banger “Karma,” which features a fired-up Freddie Gibbs, and the Fashawn-assisted lead single, “Yesterday.”“With Molotov, it was about maintaining the level of quality I’m known for,” the producer says, noting that it all started with the two sending tracks back and forth. “As the project was coming along, we started building the proper chemistry to make this special.”Saga agreed, calling the project’s conception “organic.” It was that unrestrained vibe that he says “allowed me to be free with my thought process, and write for the moment.” As a result, he was able to explore new and intriguing ideas, like how “chaos is the end result of a long process of inner discontent within our own lives.” And you can hear him eloquently rhyme about this subject on “Misunderstood,” his favorite cut on the 12 track LP.

The Notorious B.I.G. is widely recognized as one of the world’s most influential rappers and has sold more than 17 million albums in the U.S. alone. Before his murder in 1997, Christopher Wallace recorded two classic albums as The Notorious B.I.G. His debut Ready to Die arrived in 1994 and helped revitalize the East Coast rap scene with massive hits like “Big Poppa” and “Juicy.” Faith Evans has enjoyed worldwide success as an award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and writer. She has recorded eight studio albums, including the back-to-back platinum smashes, Faith (1995) and Keep The Faith (1998). Faith Evans and The Notorious B.I.G. famously met at a photo shoot in 1994 and were married nine days later. What followed would become one of the most legendary love stories in hip-hop history. Evans has now, 20 years after B.I.G.’s still unsolved murder, created The King & I, a brand new album that tells the story of their life together. The CD features 25 tracks, including newly recorded vocals by Evans melded with vocals by Biggie Smalls, some well-known but also a selection of rare and unheard rhymes from the B.I.G. vault. THE KING & I also includes an impressive list of guest appearances by rap royalty including Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Lil’ Cease, Lil’ Kim, Sheek Louch, Styles P, and Snoop Dogg. Evans has also brought on some of the most acclaimed producers in hip-hop, many of which produced some of B.I.G.’s most famous tracks, including DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi, Stevie J, and Chucky Thompson.

For your listening pleasure Herring presents 4 dope tracks from Shawn Lov's 14th and final album. The Trenton MC has been laying down tracks since 1989 and recorded from 1989-1996 at his father's studio - the very same spot that Courageous Chief, Royal Family, Soul Survivors, and Shakespeare and Last Empire recorded their grails! Being from Trenton you might guess he would've been tight with Tony D [R.I.P.] - which he was. The legendary Poor Righteous Teachers producer mentored Shawn until his untimely passing and produced and featured on a bunch of Shawn's jawns. Included on this project is production from Shawn himself as well as the excellent The Custodian of Records and German beatmaker Raiden. ENJOY YO!!!.New Jersey based Shawn Lov began his career as a recording artist in 1994 with the release of his first LP "Speak of the Devil," which led to various live performances and guest appearances including Video Music Box Events (1994-1995), acting as the opener for Mobb Deep, King Sun, Big Pun and Ol' Dirty Bastard (1995), and as a musical guest on The Jenny Jones Show (1998). By 1997, Shawn Lov was collaborating with the late legendary Hip-Hop producer Tony- D of Poor Righteous Teacher and YZ fame, and their collaborations yielded hits like "The Lov Doctor," "I'm Pathetic," and "Respect This." Shawn's second LP "The G.O.D." was released in 1998, and was produced entirely by Tony D. It wasn't until Shawn Lov dropped his "Never Never Land" LP in 2000 that he began topping the charts on mp3.com and quickly gained a loyal underground following which expanded even further following his partnership overseas with Nuffsaid.

Amongst hip-hop fans, Boogie Down Productions’ first two albums – Criminal Minded (1987) and By All Means Necessary (1988) – both loom very large. And for good reason: they both captured one of the late 1980s’ most important and influential crews at their highest powers of lyricism and musical invention. That being said, too many people sleep on BDP’s third LP, Ghetto Music. Released in 1989, when the hip-hop world was truly beginning to explode and reach new heights of sales and exposure around the world, the album is arguably as powerful as the group’s first two. As on By All Means Necessary, in the wake of the tragic death of original founder, producer and DJ Scott LaRock, KRS-One pushed along mightily on the production side, with help from his extended crew. Musically the sound created on albums 2 & 3 was funky, catchy, and continually innovative, giving him the perfect backdrop to build his “Edutainment” syllabus. Lyrically there was never a question about KRS’ power, and on Ghetto Music he continues to impress, teach and ask important questions. Clear cases in point are two of the album’s singles, “You Must Learn” and “Why Is That?” but he gets even deeper on lesser-jocked tracks like the anti-police thought-piece “Who Protects Us From You” (still sadly relevant in 2017), “Ghetto Music” and “World Peace.” Still as strong and entertaining today as it was almost three decades ago, this new reissue is a perfect way for younger fans to embrace one of the most underrated hip-hop platters of the era.

This is music that reflects the sound and attitude of countless rappers selling their albums out of the back of their cars or in booths on the street, cutting together dirty and disjointed sounds with a confidence and quality that is unique to this particular genre. This would all be for nothing if it wasn’t for the excellent raps from Ill Bill, Goretex, and Sabac Red, a trio of rappers who have a Tribe Called Quest-like chemistry. Their clever lyrics, respectable skills, and rough voices make this an intense and dark landmark in alternative rap.

"Known Unknowns" is Billy Woods’ new album, a follow-up to 2013’s Blockhead collaboration "Dour Candy". Blockhead is still behind the boards here but there are also a couple beats from his longtime collaborator Aesop Rock. But the center of the whirlwind is still Woods, who re-emerges from a two-year hiatus after releasing the avant-garde "Today, I Wrote Nothing" in early 2015. "Known Unknowns" finds the artist on more melodic ground, but still his esoteric, acerbic self, spinning verses equal parts joy and terror, wry wit and blind rage. There are guest appearances from ELUCID (Armand Hammer), as well as Aesop Rock, Homeboy Sandman, Googie, singer Barrie McLain and DJ Mo Niklz. Since "Dour Candy", Blockhead has worked with Aesop, Sandman and MarQ Spekt but "Known Unknowns" shows that he and woods have developed their own unique chemistry.

Under the glow of moonlight, Zak Damundo has arrived on the Cold Busted label scene with his fantastic debut album 3am. The alias of San Francisco DJ / producer Zach DeVincent, Zak Damundo presents eighteen original and sampled beats that are mixed continuously in the physical realm (CD and vinyl), but also available digitally as individual cuts. An underground dance music veteran, DeVincent is the host of SWIM on Digitally Imported Radio, an affiliate of the Bay Area's independent hip hop TV program Distortion 2 Static, and has released tunes for the likes of 5 and Dime Recordings, Acryl Music, Looq Records, and Open Bar Music. 3am is aptly titled as the tracks transmit a dead-of-night vibe, with loose rhythms, spacey samples, and lush melodic constructions. The continuously mixed version shows Zak and the album in their element, as a solitary evening journey motoring through city streets is sonically intimated. Individually, the album's cuts are prime movers for the crafty selector, perfectly elevating the after-hours lounge DJ set. 3am opens with "Soul" which draws from 'quiet storm' '80s funk in the low end and dreamy, ambient '90s electronica through its swirling pads. The stylistic combination is infectious and continues throughout this evocative album. Other highlights include the echoed guitar chops and rising pads of "Comedown", "Drift"'s pristine, laid-back jazz-funk textures, the dramatic strings and piano over a boom-bap beat in "Say Goodnight", and the lovely, immersive hip hop soundscape of "Venice". Zak Damundo is on point, and 3am is recommended for any nocturnal hour.

The first track to premiere from “Triangles” was launched this summer, galvanizing his perspective on the realities of society with the Nick Rodriguez directed music video “Supposedly.” Bringing in 150,000+ plays in the last few months, “Supposedly” was produced by long time working associate of Provoked’s, Louden.Triangles was recorded, mixed and mastered by Low End Theory co-founders Nobody and Daddy Kev at the Cosmic Zoo.

"Singing was always a big passion for me..I was always fascinated at all the acrobatic vocal runs some singers do with their voice. To me it's an athletic thing and I definitely see myself as a vocal athlete..and for that deeper understanding of my voice that I now have I have to thank my vocal coach Betty Lane. She literally helped me to push out the voice that had been waiting there for years, ready to come out, like "John use me, I'm your voice" and It was always a goal of mine to make a project that showcases my singing. I see myself as a singer songwriter first, I just grew up in the generation of rap, so the 2 styles just fused together naturally. I started writing poems around 8 or 9 years old, then songs, and then raps. I eventually put it all together…22 years later...the journey to my heart , through all the ups and downs of my career trying to discover my voice, who I am, all my travels around the globe. It all leads back to Home, in the most literal sense. The house I’m sitting in front of on the video for "Home" is the house my parents brought me home to as a baby. So for me it’s like going back to the original source, the original purpose. That purpose for me is to sing. That's why this album is so special for me...and Calvin made the perfect soundtrack for me to take you on a soulful stroll through my hometown, Detroit Michigan aka Motown. Hope you enjoy! As Dank would say.."Bless up!!!!!!!!""Illa J

After about 20 years of work as a DJ for different bands, artists, various music projects and the production of countless songs, mixtapes, beat tapes and other stuff, DJ Tom Select presents his first solo album called ZIPDRIVEDISCO. The grey colored 12” Vinyl features 16 songs with exclusive guest appearances from Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang Clan), Daz Dillinger (Dogg Pound), Chino XL, C-Rayz Walz, Bronze Nazareth, Nino Graye, Jaecyn Bayne, Doktor Dogma, Kurupt, Snoop Dogg and many more. While the Vinyl LP can be seen as a classic Hip Hop album, the included 29 track CD offers a different experience since the majority of the songs are actually instrumental tracks, enriched with sounds, effects, voices other details one only comes across when listening to the album several times. Hence, ZIPDRIVEDISCO might also be attractive to people who are not too much into Hip Hop music. Production/Cuts/Mix: DJ Tom Select (Lost Hill Music)Mastering: Robin Schmidt (24-96 Studios, Karlsruhe/Germany)Artwork: Dominik Osswald (Linear Lab)Jahre als DJ und Produzent gearbeitet, meist im Hip Hop Bereich - aber der musikalische Fokus hat sich über die Jahre verlagert und verändert undwir waren dabei ein neues, live eingespieltes Band Projekt in Angriff zu nehmen. Drums, Gitarren, Bass und Piano/Orgel. Keine Samples mehr,keine Beats oder Raps – ich war einfach gerade etwas gelangweilt von Hip Hop und daher daran interessiert etwas anderes zu machen. Irgendwieetwas, das so klingt wie die Bands oder Künstler die ich zuvor in Samples verwendet habe. Deswegen musste sich auch das Studio Setupentsprechend ändern und angepasst werden.Dabei stieß ich auf meine ganzen alten ZIP Disks auf denen ich meine Arbeit in der Vergangenheit meist gespeichert habe, einfach weil es schnellund bequem war – und aufgrund der Tatsache, dass ich nicht meinen Studio PC oder andere Geräte anschalten und hochfahren musste wenn ichan der MPC einen Beat produzieren wollte. Ich habe die Sachen zum Teil seit Jahren nicht mehr gehört und fing dann einfach während des Umbausim Studio an die ganzen Dateien durchzugehen. Es war wirklich überraschend festzustellen, wie viele Konzepte, Beats, Fragmente, Loops und nichtfertig gestellte Songs ich eigentlich auf Lager hatte, manche vor über zehn Jahren produziert; mal ganz abgesehen von den ganzen hochkarätigenGästen deren dope Vocals bisher niemand gehört hat. Es wurde also klar, dass es irgendwann an der Zeit war, die ganzen angefangenen Tracksendlich mal fertig zu machen, halbwegs sinnvoll zusammenzustellen und zu veröffentlichen. Also habe ich mich im Winter 2016 ein paar Wochen imStudio eingeschlossen und fertig gemacht was ging. Manche Dateien wollten sich nicht mehr öffnen lassen, bei anderen konnte man nicht mehrwirklich was am alten Arrangement, dem Sound oder der Sample Qualität machen. Aber am Ende hatte ich recht schnell knapp 30 Songs fertig undfing an fehlende Vocals oder Updates einzusammeln, einfach um die wichtigsten und besten Tracks komplett fertig zu kriegen – die, die ichunbedingt auf der Platte haben wollte – and here we go!Die Vinyl LP kommt mit 16 Songs und ist eigentlich ein ziemlich klassisches Hip Hop oder Rap Album – während die CD ein anderes Gefühlaufkommen lässt wenn man sie von Anfang bis Ende hört. Die CD beinhaltet 29 Songs und besteht aus viel Instrumental Hip Hop, Effekten, Soundsund zahllosen Details – und ich persönlich finde sie noch immer sehr unterhaltsam anzuhören, obwohl das nicht oft der Fall ist nach derFertigstellung eines Albums. Bis dahin hat man manche Stellen mehrere hunderte Mal angehört und hat eigentlich erst Mal genug davon nach demMastering. Ich denke daher, dass aufgrund des Mix von Vocal- und Instrumental Tracks sogar Leute die mit Hip Hop sonst nicht so viel zu tun habenan dem Album gefallen finden könnten. Die 12“ legt man primär auf wenn man laut, guten, fett produzierten Hip Hop hören will – und einenPlattenspieler hat - die CD kann man genauso laut, dagegen aber auch einfach entspannt und leiser im Auto nebenher hören. Zudem ist auch daseigentliche Produkt einfach cool geworden. Die 12“ kommt auf grauem Vinyl das wirklich dope aussieht mit den bunten Labels, die Innenhülle istbeidseitig bedruckt und beinhaltet Liner Notes für jeden Song – und die CD kann, weil sie ebenfalls in einem extra bedrucktem Karton Sleevekonfektioniert ist, auch außerhalb der Plattenhülle bequem als Stand-alone Release verwendet werden. CDs die Platten beiliegen laufen nämlich oftGefahr, irgendwo zu verschwinden weil sie nicht entsprechend wertig verpackt und gekennzeichnet sind.“Gäste:Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna (Wu-Tang Clan), Craig G. (Juice Crew), Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Snoop Dogg (Dogg Pound), Nino Graye (Flow4Ever),Bronze Nazareth (Wisemen, Almighty, Project Manzu), M-Eighty (Almighty, Glass City), Jaecyn Bayne, C-Rayz Walz, Fantomas, Buzz T., Kalmann,Harry and more …over 20 years now, mostly in the Hip Hop space – but the musical focus switched over the years and we were planning for a live band project at thetime. Drums, Bass, Guitar and Keys. No more samples, beats, raps – I was just bored with Hip Hop and was interested in doing someting else,something that would sound like the bands or artists I loved to sample. That’s why the studio setup had to change.During this time I came across all my old ZIP disks on which I used to save my samples and MPC work in the past, just because it was fast andconvenient – and due to the fact that I didn’t have to switch on my studio computer or any other device when producing a beat. I haven’t listened tothe stuff on these disks for years but started to go through all the material again while working on the new studio setup. It was a real surprise to mehow many concepts, beats, fragments, loops and finished songs I actually had on stock that were never released, some of them produced over tenyears ago - not to mention all the high ranking guests who delivered great vocals nobody ever heard. Hence, it was just a matter of time that all thismaterial had to be finalized, compiled and released. I took action, locked me up in the studio for some weeks in Winter 2016 and started finalizingthe stuff, at least the songs I could. Some files were corrupted or destroyed and I wasn’t really able to change the old arrangement, sound or quality.However, I quickly had about 30 songs ready and started to collect missing vocals or updates to existing ones, just so I was able to finalize all songsI wanted to have on the album – and here we go!The Vinyl LP which features 16 songs is pretty much a straight forward Hip Hop or Rap album - whileas the CD creates a different type of feeling ifone listens to it from start to the end, it features 29 songs. It contains a lot of instrumental music, sounds, effects and countless details - and Ipersonally still find it very entertaining to listen to, even though that is rarely the case after finishing an album because I may have heard it somehundred times over the past 3 months. However, I think that even people who are not into Hip Hop music too much will enjoy the album to someextend. Also, the product is just nice. The 12“ grey colored Vinyl looks awesome with the contrasting labels, the LP sleeve is nicely printed as welland features some liner notes for each song - and even the CD can easily be treated as a stand-alone release at home and outside the Vinyl boxsince it comes in an extra thick, fully printed CD paper tray.Guest Appearances:Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna (Wu-Tang Clan), Craig G.

When Kay the Aquanaut says, the American dream is a nightmare... and the nightmare is everywhere, on the track American Expre$$ from his latest collaboration, 7 Vessels, with producer Factor Chandelier, it resonates in a way that is particularly salient in these uneasy times. But despite this nightmare, 7 Vessels provides a life raft in the midst of a sea of disingenuousness. 7 Vessels is Kay and Factor Chandeliers sixth album together and the culmination of their long-running collaborative relationship. The result is a work that incorporates Factor Chandeliers signature meticulous hip hop production work seamlessly with Kays thought-provoking lyrics. Chandelier, known for sample-free beats and live instrumentation, creates a soundscape that is so sophisticated that it reveals something new on each listen. On his tenth release, Kay has solidied his reputation as a captivating songwriter and fresh voice. The sharp social commentary combined with the intricate and multi-layered production gives 7 Vessels a power and authenticity that is rare. And despite the political slant of the album, 7 Vessels is still a smooth, sailboat deck at sunset journey through waves of moods. With appearances by Ceschi and Paranoid Castle, the album creates a sense of community weaving together dierent voices.

On Thanksgiving 1989, Kmart employee and audio enthusiast Mark Davis wandered behind the customer service desk to check out the store’s sound system, which looped muzak and top 40 plus ads and announcements under the banner of “KMRT, The Kmart Radio Network.” When he found last month’s tape hadn’t been thrown out yet, he pocketed it and made a habit of doing this, collecting 56 tapes from 1989-1992.In September 2015, Davis uploaded the tapes to archive.org with the humble intention of preserving them. But within a few weeks he became an internet celebrity among obscure media fans and supplemented the collection with reel-to-reel tapes from the 70s and 80s thanks to Tom Schwarzrock, who acquired them serendipitously along with a deck he purchased. The tapes are like a consumerist time capsule, a vaporwave trove of eerily familiar corporate ephemera extracted from its original context and purpose.Similarly, Attention Kmart Choppers is composed of pieces from this collection chopped up, resculpted, and mosaicked together by Juicy The Emissary, forming a new, distinctly contemporary sound while inheriting a haunting nostalgia that provokes memories burrowed deep in the subconscious.
