Small Professor: A Jawn Supreme Vol. 3 (Stream)

A new selection of beats from Small Professor, as he continues his run of instrumental releases with A Jawn Supreme Vol. 3. Partly inspired by the current global mood, while also serving as a glimmer of hope for the future, it’s another solid release from a producer who deserves your attention (and money). Check the full tape for yourself below and then head to Bandcamp to cop a download.

Brelstaff: Eulogies EP (Stream)

Another artist I’ve neglected to champion, while at the same time happily enjoying his music, is Scottish producer, Brelstaff. Once upon a time moving under the more formal moniker, Daryl Donald, he emerged with his new name a few months ago and blessed the world with his titular ‘debut’. Since then he has released this excellent EP and a collection of beats from the archive, so he is definitely putting the work in. And with good reason, as you will hear from his music which is overflowing with intriguing samples, weighty drums and infinite head-nodding potential. You can stream Eulogies below and then head to Bandcamp to find the rest of his music. Continue reading “Brelstaff: Eulogies EP (Stream)”

Lee Scott: I Can’t Figure Out How I Figured It All Out (Stream)

I Can’t Figure Out How I Figured It All Out is a collection of beats that Lee has put together over the last few weeks, in part because of a sore throat and in part because he is one of those artists who can’t ever stop making music. You can stream the project below and downloads are available via Lee’s Bandcamp. Continue reading “Lee Scott: I Can’t Figure Out How I Figured It All Out (Stream)”

Daringer: Baker’s Dozen (Stream)

Griselda production stalwart, Daringer, teams up with Fat Beats to assist with the 11th instalment of their Baker’s Dozen series. The 13 beats provide a nice insight into Daringer’s methods and shine a light on why he has fast become the favourite of many of today’s rap fans. Daringer himself says that his dad was a jazz pianist and so he grew up listening to a lot of improvised sessions, which definitely influenced his sometimes unconventional sequencing. The collection is available to stream below and downloads can be found on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Daringer: Baker’s Dozen (Stream)”
