Tasty little mini-mix from Evil Ed, acting as a preview for the new Remulak LP, which is released later today on Village Live Records. More instrumental focus than his last offerings, only two features made the cut this time – Brooklyn MC, Justo and Australian vocalist, Melody Myla. Earth is being released on three formats, with 100 limited edition splattered vinyl among them. For more info on the release and for all pre-orders, head over the Village Live store.

A suitably satisfying beat from Chairman Maf, as he gets ready to bring us another collection of his finely crafted audible gems. The album, Alcoholic Soul, is out on 7 June on Gorilla Finger Records. You can find pre-orders here.

Village Live continue their run of top notch instrumental projects, with their latest release from UK producer, Kuartz. If you’re not familiar with Kuartz, he has been knocking out strong records and beat tapes for a while now, including an LP with Queens-based MC, Aye Wun. Read the rest of this entry »

The start of April saw the release of one of the more intriguing projects of recent times. Curious Alice is an interpretation of the Lewis Carroll classic, told through the beats of some of the UK’s most innovative independent producers.

Bradford producer, HashFinger, has been putting out quality instrumental projects for a good few years now and is arguably one of the country’s most prolific artists. He has become a favourite among fans and peers alike, thanks to the largely sample-based beats he creates. I caught up with him for a chat about crate digging, taking his music to Israel and his plans for future projects, among other things. Read the rest of this entry »

Scrag Diggy of Greasy Ninjas fame has been putting in work recently, resulting in this beat tape full of temptation for any MCs looking to smash something. Seven tracks deep and coming from a guy who has already notched up credits with the likes of Durrty Goodz and Klashnekoff, you know it’s going to be worth hitting play. You can stream the full thing below and you can hit him up for all your production needs via his Soundcloud. Read the rest of this entry »

The ever dope Village Live Records have another strong release coming soon, courtesy of Argentinian producer, Gas-Lab. He’s also a talented instrumentalist, as this video for Chemistry demonstrates. Definitely one to watch out for. The full project, Fusion, is out on 3 March with pre-orders available here.

damu

More instrumental glory, this time from Damu the Fudgemunk and his new project, Vignettes. This is a beast of a release, weighing in at 15 tracks, with some of them hitting the 12 minute mark. It’s also a good exhibit in the case for why Damu has gained such a loyal following and for why Redefinition Records are becoming a label to be reckoned with. The album is available to stream below and you can cop a download over on Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

monstra

Another strong release from the Street Corner Music label emerged at the end of last year, as Siege Monstracity dropped his self-titled debut LP. If you are not up on his achievements so far, you are as likely to hear his music on mainstream radio as you are at some indy rap show.
He has worked with artists like Dr Dre and YG, but has also produced for underground cats like Bad Lucc and Namebrand. This collection of 12 tracks gives you a good lesson in why he has achieved success above and below the radar. The album is available to stream below and you can download over at the SCM Bandcamp.
