Download: GUILTY SIMPSON & APOLLO BROWN// Dice Game

This has made my day. My favourite rapper collaborating with my favourite producer.  The Detroit heavyweights have released their full length LP ‘Dice Game’ a week early after sharing the track for ‘Truth be Told’ a few days ago. The pairing couldn’t be more perfect, Guilty’s menacing flow matching  the sample heavy beats Apollo Brown is infamous for.

Buy this album. Support good music.

As far as I can tell it is currently available for purchase on iTunes and for pre order at Mellomusic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DOWNLOAD: SLNGLO// Infinity pt ii

I first came across SLNGLO a few months ago when he dropped this mixette on Fulgeances Musique Large blog. The mix pretty much represents the music I listen to so I did the standard google research and found NOTHING AT ALL.

Who ever he is (can someone find out for me please?) he is back with another mix entitled ‘Infinity Pt ii’ which you can download from his mixcloud here.  The mix features 69 (LOL) tracks from beatmakers in Manchester to Detroit to LA going via Cardiff and Holland. I can pretty much guarantee that this will be in permanent rotation the next fortnight…

 

 

PS does anyone know the whereabouts of ‘Infinity Pt i’?!

 

 

Download: AMERIGO GAZAWAY// BIZARRE TRIBE: A QUEST TO THE PHARCYDE

Gummy Soul, a former radio show which has now morphed into a independant label running out of Nashville Tennesee, features only three artists on its rosta. Producer and MC Amerigo Gazaway is one of them who you may remember for his Fela Soul release in 2011. His latest project samples original recordings from A Tribe Called Quest’s extensive back catalogue paired with vocals from some of the Pharcyde’s most well known tracks…

STREAM: Danny Brown // Change

Stream the rather aptly named ‘new’ (apparently this first hit the web in 2010 when DB dropped a bunch of unreleased songs on his tumblr…) track from Motor City’s Danny Brown produced by Blu and Mainframe as ‘Johnson&Johnson’. according to SPIN this track will feature on an upcoming collaborative album named ‘Danny Johnson’ which will also feature artists such as Exile and Gonjasufi…

VIDEO: Flying Lotus- Until the Quiet Comes

For whatever reason I haven’t paid that much attention to Flying Lotus recently. This short film has definitely changed my opinion- his album drops October 2nd and I think I am now officially excited for it. Directed by Kahlil Joseph the film features three tracks from the new record (See Thru To U feat.Erykah Badu, Hunger feat. Niki Randa, Getting There feat. Niki Randa) and some dance moves which I will be re enacting at the next Hoya Hoya…
