A rough and ready, yet still banging beat tape from Strange Neighbour, as he samples the hell out of a Bollywood film score DVD he found in a charity shop. You can stream the tape in full below and you can grab a free download via Revorg Records. Read the rest of this entry »

New mixtape from Ramson Badbonez, an MC who is more than capable of taking on some of hip hop’s greatest producers and making their beats his own. This time round he is drawing on DOOM’s great legacy, specifically his Special Herbs Collection. There are six tracks to savour, all mixed and mastered by the OG Jazz T, and it’s available as a free download. You can stream it below and downloads can be found here. Read the rest of this entry »

In case, like me, you spent last month half asleep, you may have missed this new mixtape from Ramson Badbonez. Featuring a whole bunch of talented cats, alongside the ample skills of Badbonez himself, the project is compiled of tracks, remixes and features that the London MC has been involved with over the years. Jam Baxter, Twizzy, Rewd Adams and Micall Parknsun are just some of the voices that crop up throughout the mix, which clocks in at over an hour long and is available now for free. You can also stream it below. Read the rest of this entry »

In case you didn’t know, among the abundance of excellent albums that surfaced this year, there was another gem from Nashville-based producer, L’Orange. The Ordinary Man included some great features from cats like Blu, Elzhi, Del and Koreatown Oddity, nestled in between a selection of L’Orange’s quality instrumental works. If that was the shot, then this new mini medley is the chaser. Imposter Instrumentals is billed by Mello Music Group as a “postscript to ‘The Ordinary Man’ and continues dancing the fluttering fringe of illusion.”. It is available to stream below, but then head over to Bandcamp where you can cop a free download too Read the rest of this entry »

Ray Vendetta takes us back again to the golden age of mixtapes, by dropping an actual mixtape of him firing off lyrical rounds over a nice selection of instrumentals. There are beats from DOOM, Large Pro, Hi-Tek, Muggs and a whole load more. As usual with Vendetta, this is just the prelude to an official full length project which will be coming soon, this time with #TheWinners producer, Giallo Point. You can stream the mixtape below and you can grab a free download over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

A short but sweet (and hard) track from Greensboro MC, CASTLE, as he brings his lyrical a-game to Swords & Alchemy. The beat will be familiar to some as Alchemist’s wonderfully titled, Muscular Infant. You can stream the track below, with free downloads available over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

I love it when projects get released without any real prior warning. Take the third instalment of the exquisite Lice series, which Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman have been treating us to for the last couple of years. Friday saw its arrival without much hype building, except for an IG post from Aesop Rock, which pictured him and Sand with the caption “What are you doing Friday? #3”. Read the rest of this entry »

Nice gift from Public Enemy to commemorate their 30 years in the game. Last week Chuck D tweeted that the group were releasing a free album, as a thank you to the fans who have supported them throughout the years. Nothing Is Quick In The Desert is 13 tracks deep and shows the group have lost little of their ferocity since their debut, Yo! Bum Rush The Show, way back in 1987. You can stream the album below, with downloads available here. Read the rest of this entry »

Another quality joint from the combined minds of IT – aka Cryptic One and Alaska – as they bring us Famous Names for $1000. This is the fourth track in the monthly series and features a hefty guest verse from Zilla Rocca, as well as some tight cuts from DJ paWL. You can stream it below and downloads are available here.

New dope from The Odd Couple – aka Ray Vendetta and Tesla’s Ghost – as they drop their long awaited collaborative project. This Thing of Ours is itself a prelude to a full length LP, which is scheduled for release in 2018. They’ve drafted in Wu affiliate Falling Down to handle the production on both releases and you can hear why right from the opening track. The project weighs in at 10 tracks with both MCs bringing their A-game to the mic. You can stream This Thing of Ours below and there are free downloads available on Bandcamp.
