A good start to the week as I bring you the latest video from Quelle Chris and Chris Keys. Not only was Innocent Country 2 one of the best releases from this year, but Sacred Safe was also one of my most played tracks of the last 12 months. The track features superb contributions from Cavalier, Homeboy Sandman and Merrill Garbus, as well as a new layer of dope, thanks to the video from Santa West & Quelle. Innocent Country 2 is out now on Mello Music.
Brand new visuals from Homeboy Sandman, as he delivers the latest video from his most recent album. Waiting on My Girl features production from Quelle Chris, who is at the helm for the whole record, and the video was made by Photo Rob. Don’t Feed The Monster is out now via Mello Music Group.
Big fan of this latest track from Jalopy Bungus. Following on from his Me N My Folks EP, which saw its release back in June, the Phoenix artist returns with the somewhat confusingly titled, J Cole & NoName, featuring Quelle Chris on the assist. You can hear it for yourself below, then head over to Bandcamp to grab a download.
Last Friday saw the release of a bunch of potential classics, including the latest from Homeboy Sandman. Again, I’ve got a full review coming in The Wire, so for now enjoy this latest video from the album, which features production from Quelle Chris. Don’t Feed The Monster is out now on Mello Music Group.
News emerged this week, that Homeboy Sandman is preparing to release a new album. Don’t Feed The Monster was announced a few days ago, along with the release of the lead single from the album. It’s produced in its entirety by fellow label-mate, Quelle Chris, which is a definite plus point as Quelle remains one of the most consistently strong, yet underrated, producers of the last decade. You can hear Trauma below and pre-orders for the album are available now, with a release date set for 16 October. Continue reading “Homeboy Sandman: Trauma + LP News”
Fresh cut here from Rock Abruham, as he unveils the lead single from his upcoming album. Heel also features an unsurprisingly on-point appearance from Quelle Chris. From The Mud is due for release soon.
More visual niceties from Innocent Country 2, as Quelle Chris and Chris Keys release the next video from the album. It was made by Dominik Galleya and Clemens Niel, and features a collection of aesthetically pleasing images and scenes, from an assortment of supporting players. The album is out now on Mello Music Group.
A hefty track here from Quelle Chris and Chris Keys, as they keep the hype up for their forthcoming return to the Innocent Country. On MIRAGE, they are joined by a superb list of guests, as Earl Sweatshirt, Denmark Vessey, Merrill Garbis and Big Sen all add their flavours to the mix. It’s probably my favourite cut from the album yet, with the exception of Sudden Death, which is just a sort of beautiful anomaly. You can stream MIRAGE below and pre-orders for Innocent Country 2 are also available. It’s out on 24 April via Mello Music Group. Continue reading “Quelle Chris & Chris Keys ft. Earl Sweatshirt, Denmark Vessey, Merrill Garbus & Big Sen: MIRAGE”
More new music from Quelle Chris and Chris Keys as they continue the promo run for their forthcoming Innocent Country 2 album. On the almost prescient Sacred Safe, Quelle is joined by Cavalier, Homeboy Sandman and Tune-Yards instigator, Merrill Garbus, for an exploration on the theme of finding peace while your mind is waging war. The track premiered over on Hypebeast yesterday, along with a Q&A with Quelle.
Quelle Chris and Chris Keys stay providing the upbeat soundtrack we need right now, with the next single from Innocent Country 2. You might have already heard Living Happy when I posted some details about the album not long ago, but now there is an equally cheerful little animated clip to accompany it. Also accompanying are fellow MCs, Cavalier and Joseph Chilliams, with the latter deserving some sort of prize for rhyming ‘Maury Show’ with ‘glory holes’. Innocent Country 2 is out on 24 April on Mello Music Group.
