Lewis Parker - Man Up! feat Dynas
River Nelson - Rise & Fall feat. Panama
These two snuck up on me out of nowhere. Chris Barz’ Class[sickz] Out The Dark & The Residents’ Open House are both longplayers of ridiculous quality. I’m personally peed off that these almost passed me by. I suggest the good people check these out ASAP. Peep the tasters and Enjoy!

OOOOOOOOOHH!!! I’ve just seen a list of the Associated Minds planned releases for 2010. Mudmowth is gonna be busy this year with 2 collabo’s and his album finally dropping this year. The first of these, should be his Tokyo EP with Ralph Rip Shit. Until the releases start to flow', peep Ralph doing his thing over Hudson Mowhawke’s Rising 5. Enjoy!
Tom Caruana is easily becoming the hardest working beatsmith on these shores. The guy churns out these collections like an old school surrogate (sorry for the bad analogy Tom). But the qualty is such that all i can say is keep ‘em coming. This time he’s teamed uup his own Beatle led concoctions with classic Wu acapellas. Enjoy!

I am sure there are more than a few of my blogging brethrin who are also guilty of this when it comes to those dreaded year end lists. You gotta understand, some of us plough through hundreds of albums in a year. Surely we can be forgiven one or two cases of involuntary selective memory syndrome. Aaaanyway these are few that have recenntly come to mind that would have lengthened my original 'favourites list'
Ok, so Robin may be my champion, but this dude is my close second. As smooth a vocally driven head nod as I've heard in many a while. This one has been stealthily doing its thing withj my eardrums yet I forgot all about it. Sorry Ryan (not that he's gonna read this anyway).
Brother Ali - The Truth Is Here
Before US and after The Undisputed Truth, there was CD/DVD combo The Truth Is Here. It arrived at only nine tracks deep. But Bro's ridiculously high standards and some live niceness on the other disc ensured an easy purchase.
When I first heard this was coming out I was jazzed. My first instincts on what this release was gonna be like was Ghost doing his thing over some classic soul (as evidenced on some of his previous outings). Then I saw the tracklisting and (due to the guestlist) was pretty sceptical as to what I was gonna get for my ten quid/pounds. I bought it, but it sat untouched for quite a while. It must have been about 2 months before I actually played the thing. As soon as I'd finished repeating Do Over for the unpteenth time, I knew I'd had done Toney a grave disservice (sorry Ghost).
AB and Daru - A Work In Progress
Admittedly I'd never even heard of these guys before I got hold of this album. I found On Deck (an album track featuring Black Milk) while doing some random searches on Apple's pride and joy. Loved the song, copped the album and the rest, as they say.... Aaaaaaah the wonder of iTunes.
Calvin Richardson - Facts Of Life: The Soul Of Bobby Womack
Calvin is clearly in his element and at his very very best. They may all be covers, but maaaan when the songs sound this good, who gives a flying f%€# where they originated. Bobby would be proud.
Diamond District - In The Ruff
How could I not have included anything involving Oddisee. X.O. and YU make up this superb trio. Anyone who doubts the validity of what they like to call 'real Hip Hop' need only listen to this album.
Peace to the Dot Got It crew.

The Revalation Will Be Televised: Commercial Interruption
Hosted by DJ Motion & Presented by RefinedHype.com, DotGotIt.com, & RockTheDub.com Drops Today Dec. 31st!!! This is the 1st in my “The Revalation Will Be Televised” series. I wanted this tape to embody the idea that network media and social media are currently taking over our whole way of life. With that being said I decided to make a tape containing all “industry” beats or beats that had a “commercial” appeal. This was my way of showing versatility and but without sacrificing my creativity. If you listen to the songs, they all have that appeal but lyrically, I haven’t changed a thing, I’m just as raw, creative and humorous as usual just with a more “mainstream” sound on this one. And each tape in this series will have a different theme. Next mixtape “Emergency Broadcast” (coming soon) will be over all original production & for the Hip-Hop Heads!!
The Last Skept ik’s latest project, Same Day, Different Day is due sometime towards the end of February. An original, yet diverse take on some of your favourites. Daniel Merriweather, Mongrel, The Game, Lowkey, The Streets and more are all given the Skeptik treatment. This taster features Loudmouth Melvin going over the ‘Top Ten List’. Skeptiks’ wide range of beats should make for a nice album.
Funky DL (as recently featured on my annual favourites list) is back with a bit of freeness for the masses. Using Amy Winehouses debut soundscape as a catalyst, DL has put together some real niceness peepz. The formula i mentioned in the annuals list is executed as superbly as ever. Enjoy!
