Groovement Podcast: AGENT J // 7DEC13


It’s been a couple of months, but I’ve got a bag of new hip hop, jazz and funk to open December. Highlights for me are the most successful LabelGroovement release so far from Mecca 83, that Polystation track (Chilean beats from Discos Cetaceos) and the dons Jungle Fire, who I hooked up with on their Manchester date at Band on the Wall. An amazing band (featuring members of Orgone, Breakestra, Ozomatli and the like) who should smash 2014 – the track below is taken from their limited-to-3oo tour CD, available only at shows. Also a shout to the homie Depakote, who has a couple of features on this mix – his new one, Creative Freedumb, is out now on Zypher.

Debian Blak’s getting some wider exposure, Bolts has a forthcoming thing on Original Cultures, that Debruit and Alsarah album on Soundway is full tilt badness, the Teotima Ensemble track is 7 minutes of bliss, and all the hip hop on this mix demonstrates the top drawer quality about at the moment.

Oh and that Slugabed B-side.. Zoinks!

All song titles are clickable for buy, info and download links. Enjoy, and let me know what you think over on Twitter or Facebook.

Order the Deeper EP here.


On the Deeper EP, Gibbs showcases the yin and yang of heartbreak and anger on the title track, in a lovelorn narrative that meshes perfectly with the weepy strings and insistent rhythm of Madlib’s beat. We haven’t heard something like this in rap music since Nas’ “One Love,” nearly twenty years ago. The b-side, “Harolds” – exclusive to this EP – gives Gibbs a chance to ride some low down Beat Konducta-fueled funk in a nostalgic ode to the Chicago chicken-shack that served as the backdrop to many of his seminal life experiences.”

LISTEN: Benji B: DOOM Takeover on Radio1

Good Googly Moogly. A whole 2 hour show dedicated to the Supervillain on Radio 1. Benji’s show is always essential listening, but this one will make the coolest cat piss his Coogi in a minute.

The metal-faced enigma has been causing a stir lately by plotting shows like robberies, unleashing his Doombots to perform instead of him so he can keep his sweatshirt dry. Allegedly the investigation is still ongoing. DOOM joins Benji in the studio to chat at length about his various personas, collaborators, influences and albums (even if he can’t remember the names of them), comparing his rhyming process to an old homeless guy talking to himself. Most notably though, he claims the follow-up to 2004’s ultra-classic Madvillainy album could be finished by the end of the year, with the DOOMSTARKS album to follow shortly. OH, and a collaboration with Earl Sweatshirt is in the works – as if any beat can handle that much lyricism.

The show is only available on iPlayer for a week, so hear it on the radio, tape it, play it in your stereo – your crew’ll go apeshit. If this post doesn’t make any sense, it might be because I’ve paraphrased a little.

Stream the show here.

DOOM (supposedly) performs two shows for Soundcrash, along with Madlib and Jneiro and Jarel:

Press release: 

On March 27th, SomeOthaShip Connect, the label co-founded by Georgia Anne Muldrow and her life partner (and frequent collaborator)Dudley Perkins, will release Seeds, a collaborative album between Georgia and producer Madlib. Georgia recently announced the East Coast leg of her upcoming tour to support the album, and now is excited to release the album’s second official single, “Husfriend,”

“Husfriend,” which serves as the b-side to recent single and album title track “Seeds,” is an ode to the beauty of committing to another soul, and the song, built around an “Everything I want is here/ All looks perfectly clear” chorus refrain, comes complete with Georgia’s blissed out signature vibe. For his part, Madlib brings a little grit to the mix, with a beat that pairs bass-heavy low-end with crackling sample chops, a rawness that sits perfectly under Georgia’s free-flowing vocals.




New single from the forthcoming album ‘Seeds’ by Georgia Anne Muldrow, totally produced by Madlib, released March 27th, 2012.

The Seeds 7″ drops February 14, 2012 on SomeOthaShip Connect.
