Another superb video from one-man creativity show, Quelle Chris, as he continues to drop off the gems from his most recent album. Mind Ya Bidness is not only written and produced by the Quelle, he is also the brains behind the direction and animation of the video. The album, Guns, is out now on Mello Music Group.

Homeboy Sandman recently released his latest album and for me it’s one of the best we’ve heard from him in a while. Seemingly every artist who finds themselves under Mello Music Group’s wing, also finds themselves releasing some of their strongest work to date and Dusty is no exception. Only one of the tracks has features, with Your Old Droog and Quelle Chris joining the Queens MC on Lookout, leaving the majority of the album free for you to get mesmerised by Sandman’s intricate flows. The production is handled in full by Mono En Stereo. The album is out now via Bandcamp and you can stream it in full below.

Two Detroit legends combine their talents and experience to great effect, as Big Tone and House Shoes bless us with their Big Shoes project. From My Mouth To Gods Ears is just one of the gems the album holds, now accompanied by a fresh video from Aux Cinema.

You can hear the full album below and head over to Fat Beats to check the physical editions. Read the rest of this entry »

The second Your Old Droog project in as many months emerged last week, as the New York MC and producer released Transportation. He was already being touted as a contender for your album of the year lists with It Wasn’t Even Close and by all accounts Transportation seems to be getting similar responses.

Quelle Chris reflects on what we leave behind and how well are we remembered when we’re gone, on the latest track to be lifted from his acclaimed new album, Guns. The nostalgic video for WYRM (Will You Remember Me) was shot on Super 8 by GrĂ©goire Verbeke, one afternoon in Brussels. Guns is out now on Mello Music Group.

One of a number of undoubtedly strong projects released today is the latest solo effort from Quelle Chris. Having already been treated to a few tasters from Guns, including the title track and Straight Shot which features a surprising appearance from UK comedian, James Acaster, it was already pretty clear that this album was going to be another success for Quelle. Armed with his usual brand of wry humour and social commentary, the NY-based artist allows us to laugh at some of the current situations, where otherwise we might have no choice but to cry. The album is produced by Quelle, alongside Dane and Chris Keys. There are a stack of great features too including Jean Grae, Mach-Hommy, Cavalier and Denmark Vessey. Guns is ready to stream in full below, with downloads available via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

After a couple of audio leaks from his upcoming Guns album, Quelle Chris returned to the fore today with the first video to be taken from the project. Obamacare is co-produced by frequent collaborator, Chris Keys, who also plays the drums and the exquisite bassline, described by Quelle as “the real star of the song, the real cherry on top, the Vanjie Drag Race exit”. The animated video is another of Quelle’s projects, something you can tell he has a lot of fun making. He said it has a drip of homage for Terry Gilliam (a favourite of mine), but that’s the first person I thought of when I saw it, especially those old Monty Python interludes.
Guns is due for release on 29 March on Mello Music Group.

Another great cut from the upcoming Quelle Chris album, as the Detroit MC and producer treats us to the next bullet in the chamber – Straight Shot, produced by frequent collaborator, Chris Keys. Featuring a host of great names including Cavalier, Bilal Salaam, Eldar Djangirov and a surprising but welcome poetry appearance by UK comedian, James Acaster, the track is an altogether more mellow affair than its predecessor, which only makes me more intrigued for how the album is going to sound as a whole. Straight Shot is available to stream below, with pre-orders for the album now live via Bandcamp. The release date is scheduled for 29 March. Read the rest of this entry »
