Lots of beautiful music surfacing today, including this latest offering from Damu The Fudegmunk. If you’ve been checking the blog over recent weeks / months, you might well have seen me talking about this one already as it marks the beginning of a new series of releases between Def Pressé and KPM / EMI. Created using samples exclusively sourced from KPM’s legendary library, Damu’s Conversation Peace is an album that sounds at once nostalgic and timely. Features include some usual suspects, in the form of Raw Poetic, Blu and Insight, as well as a superb cut from Nitty Scott. Check the full splendour for yourself below, then head to Bandcamp for all your download and vinyl needs. I was lucky enough to talk with Damu recently, where we dissected the making of the album. You can read the interview in full via Grown Up Rap.Continue reading “Damu The Fudgemunk: Conversation Peace (Stream)”
It’s been a while since I heard Insight on a track, so was pleased to see this collaboration with Damu the Fudgemunk doing the rounds. Taken from a full length project, it’s plain to see Insight is still as skillful as ever and Damu’s production is the ideal accompaniment for those skills. Ears Hears Spears is out on 22 March on Redefinition Records and you can pre-order here. The track is available to stream below. Continue reading “Insight & Damu The Fudgemunk: All Human”
The good people at Adult Swim and Mello Music Group have combined their powers of generosity and are giving away the new project from L’Orange and Mr Lif for free. Entitled The Death of Scenery, the EP focuses on dystopian visions close enough to reality that you might consider tracking down that bunker you’ve always dreamt of.
L’Orange has a habit of finding a sound that fits the MC he’s working with like a glove, as all good producers should and with Lif he has found an ideal creative partner. Features include Akrobatik, Insight and DJ QBert. The EP is available to stream and download here, with an extended version being released on 14 October which you can pre-order here.
