Your Old Droog has already been responsible for two of the year’s top releases, thanks to the two albums he dropped in relatively quick succession earlier in the year. Now he’s decided to go for the triple, as he releases another surprise album, Jewelry. The album features production from the likes of Quelle Chris, Edan and Tha God Fahim, plus some exceptionally nice features from Mach-Hommy, MF DOOM, Fahim and Matisyahu, culminating in some of the best Droog material we’ve heard this year. The latest video from the album is available to watch above and you can stream Jewelry in full below.
The mash up master, Tom Caruana, returns with another incredible project as he continues to blend areas of music that would otherwise remain perfect strangers. Following on from his earlier ventures, including Wu Tang vs. Hendrix and Wu Tang vs. The Beatles, the Tea Sea Records founder has now delved into the instrumentals of German experimental rock band, Can, who were one of the pioneers of the Krautrock explosion that occurred in the late-60s.

As the release date for Humble Pi fast approaches, Homeboy Sandman and Edan have just offered up another video from the album. The Gut sees the duo submerged underwater – for real & not so real – as Sands delivers his verse over another very Edan-esque beat, with the producer also making a welcome return to the mic. Humble Pi is due for release on 26 October on Stones Throw.
As the much deserved anticipation continues to build for the collaborative album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan, the duo have released a video for #NeverUseTheInternetAgain. The audio for the track first surfaced back in April, before they had announced that they were working on an album together. The video features Edan and Sands working in a computer repair shop together, but one you might want to think twice about using. Keep an eye out for cameo(s) too. The album itself, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October via Stones Throw.
Yesterday Stones Throw announced the release date for the long-awaited album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan. The two started working together a few years ago, after meeting at a show they were both performing at, which lead to Edan producing the track Talking (Bleep) on Sandman’s 2016 Kindness for Weakness LP.
Now they have returned with a full-length project, with Edan behind the production and Sandman handling the raps. Grim Seasons is the first taste from the album, with Sandman weaving complex bars over a crazy beat from Edan. It’s all tied together with a great animated video from Kagan McLeod. The album, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October.
Life is confusing sometimes. Take today when I found out that Homeboy Sandman and Edan had snuck out a new collaboration without much fanfare. The quandary though is that the mood of the song is railing against the internet and it’s many, many pitfalls, while simultaneously making us use the internet to listen to the song. I mean if that isn’t the trappings of modern life in a nutshell, then I don’t know what is.
Hyped to see Edan and Mr Lif back on a track together, as they bring their unique styles to this new track from Cut Chemist. There are some great effects in the video too. Metalstorm is the first track to be taken from Cut Chemist’s forthcoming album, Die Cut, which will be released on 2 March. Pre-orders are available here.
There is now a video for the new joint from Your Old Droog, which leaked a couple of weeks ago. Featuring excellent features from Edan and Wiki, plus nice production from the former, this could be a highlight from the album. Packs is out soon.
The next leak from Your Old Droog’s forthcoming Packs album is here and it is a bit of a rare treat. Not only does it feature production from Edan, but it also features a guest verse from the Humble Magnificent and Ratking frontman, Wiki. Edan verses are few and far between – they always have been – but know that when he does choose to touch the mic, it is always top grade, head fuck worthy lyricism. Packs is out on 10 March. You can stream Help below. Continue reading “Your Old Droog ft. Wiki & Edan: Help”
Bit of treat here, thanks to Cut Chemist releasing this demo from his 2006 LP The Audience’s Listening. What became the psych rock tinted Storm, started out as the funky break laden Siesta. I’m a bit of an Edan nerd, so things like this tend to get me slightly more hyped than they probably should do, but hearing how the creative process evolves is always interesting to me anyway.
