Dirty 8-Bit sounds on the new track from Michigan producer, Dabrye. He enlists a triumvirate of distinct MCs for The Appetite, with Roc Marciano, Quelle Chris and Danny Brown, all sounding as on point as ever. The track is taken from Dabrye’s upcoming album, Three/Three, which is due for release mid-February. The rest of the album features a load more heavy hitters, including Guilty Simpson, Ghostface and DOOM, so definitely one to watch out for. More news on that soon.

Brooklyn MC, producer and all round rap aficionado, Duncecap, is releasing his new album next week and it looks set to be another success for independent artists. Yesterday this video emerged, for a track that also features two other hip hop dons, namely Quelle Chris and ELUCID.
Duncecap did the production and also made the video, so looking forward to hearing what’s he created for the rest of the album. Rapping is For Idiots is due for release on 10 November and pre-orders are available here.

Cohenbeats and Quelle Chris partner up on this new track, Daily Affirmations, which is the title track from Cohen’s album. Great video too, which was also animated and directed by Quelle. More info on the album is available over at the Stones Throw store.

Crazy sounds on the new release from Buy Muy Drugs. The foundation for the project is a collaboration between rapper, Denmark Vessey and producer, Azarias. Between the two of them they craft a dystopian vision, which is also inhabited by a few other visitors, including Quelle Chris, Yasiin Bey and Open Mike Eagle. The sound is a rough blend of Afro-Brazilian flavours and dirty beats.
I’ve always been a fan of tales from a disturbed future, but as humanity continues down this destructive path we seem to be fastened to, releases like this are starting to sound more like guidebooks rather than imaginary events. So listen intently and take notes. You can stream the project below and you can download it via Bandcamp. Read the rest of this entry »

I love it when projects get released without any real prior warning. Take the third instalment of the exquisite Lice series, which Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman have been treating us to for the last couple of years. Friday saw its arrival without much hype building, except for an IG post from Aesop Rock, which pictured him and Sand with the caption “What are you doing Friday? #3”. Read the rest of this entry »

Check out the latest joint from the ever-dope Nolan the Ninja – Modesty. Featuring appearances from Quelle Chris and Denmark Vessey, who also produced the track, Modesty is taken from Nolan’s forthcoming YEN project, which is due out on 22 September on Soulspazm.

Uncommon Nasa has a new album on the way, which is his fourth studio album and the first one he has produced entirely himself.

More news on the album as it comes, but for now you can stream Written at Night below. Read the rest of this entry »

Quelle Chris has also released one of my favourite albums of the year so far, in the form of Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often. Last week saw the release of the next video from the album, which sees Chris teaming up with his buddy/himself (played by Don Will). The album is out now via Mello Music Group.

New video from SonnyJim and his excellent Mud in my Malbec LP. This time it’s one of my favourites from the album, Dorchester featuring the inimitable Quelle Chris. Great animation style in the video too, courtesy of Ewen Farr, who reinterprets a classic Pulp Fiction scene. It was premiered over on Pigeons & Planes on Wednesday.

New album and a new video from Quelle Chris, as he releases the deservedly hyped, Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often and this accompanying video for Birthdaze.
There is a cameo from long term partner in crime, Jean Grae, as well as some nice shooting by Dunce Videos. The album is out today on Mello Music Group and you can cop it here. I recently interviewed Quelle Chris for Grown Up Rap, which you can find here.
