This is probably my favourite video from Chairman Maf so far. He decided to make it himself to cut some costs and it worked out a treat. Filth is the next track to be lifted from his recent Alcoholic Soul album, which is out now on Gorilla Finger Records.

Check out this tasty little video for another gem from Chairman Maf’s recent album, Alcoholic Soul. Dmitri Dominique is the brains behind the visuals. The album is available to buy here.

NY indie favourite, ELUCID, is back at it with another album release, following on from January’s sublime, Valley of Grace. Horse Latitude is an instrumental project, with 11 tracks showcasing ELUCID’s varied soundscapes, ranging from the ethereal to the left-field, all threaded with the same vein of dope. You can stream the album below and downloads are available here. Read the rest of this entry »

Another new video from the excellent Aver album, Die Berlin Dateien. The LP is available from Village Live Records, with vinyl shipments starting tomorrow.

Another day, another bit of audio visual joy from Village Live. This time round it’s the next excerpt from Remulak’s recent debut LP, Earth. Tales Up Quicksie Hill is more of that same relaxing head nod instrumental goodness, that has made Remulak a definite producer’s producer. Earth is available to buy here.

Village Live continue their recent run of formidable instrumental releases, with the latest album from Aver. Perhaps best known as the head producer of hip hop collective, The Natural Curriculum, Aver made the album while living in Berlin. That explains the German speech samples laced throughout the project, which are backed up with syncopated drum breaks and cuts from his fellow TNC family members. Check out the mini-mix below as well as the first video from the album, Portale. You can download Die Berlin Dateien here. Read the rest of this entry »

One of my favourite releases of the year is Gas-Lab’s Fusion album and this latest single is a perfect example of why. Featuring some sublime trumpet playing from Marcello Gallo, Jazz Cats is the ideal accompaniment to these lazy, hazy days. The album is out now on Village Live Records.

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 »
