Is it funny that when certain other MC/crooners dare to show their emotion through song I can't get over how bad they sound yet when Phonte Coleman does the same over beats laid down by the marvelously talented best Dutch export since Denis Bergkamp, I proclaim the results Beautiful Music and proceed to go into detail as to why? Call it professional bias, call it the fact that I think the MC/crooner in question fell off (or in some respects was never really on), or simply call it impeccable taste, The Foreign Exchange never disappoint... apart from the really cheesy album title!
Haan & Sixth Sense - The Format EP
Life MC has a new album out and I almost missed it!?!?! Magnificently aided by the living legend that is beatsmith DJ Nappa, Gift Of Life is the latest in a catalogue of great beats laden with this mans seemingly endless source of gems. Peep the evidence and Enjoy!
Buy: D.ablo - The Retrospective
Click the pic for tickets people! imma be there! Check out last years winner in action after the break.
This laid back groove is my personal favourite track from The Mouse Outfits latest release (the next clip is a very close 2nd). Escape Music features a bevvy of the UK MCs (they really love Dr. Syntax) over some super super nice Jazzy/Boom Bap grooves with a sprinkle of Dub for good measure. This is one of my regular rotation and has been for some time (yes i know i should update that list more often). Peep this and other clips after the break. Enjoy and support support!
The Menagerie - Irregular Spirits
Stig Of The Dump is back with some freeness for the masses. 6 tracks deep of Raw, straight Boom Bap in all its guises. Stig says you should be lighting one up to this but seeing as i don't partake in such frivolity i obviously will not be co-signing that statement. I do however, expect to be seeing Esyoube's name attached to many more projects in the near future. Oh and its only free for the first 2000 downloads. Enjoy!
