Lots of beautiful music surfacing today, including this latest offering from Damu The Fudegmunk. If you’ve been checking the blog over recent weeks / months, you might well have seen me talking about this one already as it marks the beginning of a new series of releases between Def Pressé and KPM / EMI. Created using samples exclusively sourced from KPM’s legendary library, Damu’s Conversation Peace is an album that sounds at once nostalgic and timely. Features include some usual suspects, in the form of Raw Poetic, Blu and Insight, as well as a superb cut from Nitty Scott. Check the full splendour for yourself below, then head to Bandcamp for all your download and vinyl needs. I was lucky enough to talk with Damu recently, where we dissected the making of the album. You can read the interview in full via Grown Up Rap.Continue reading “Damu The Fudgemunk: Conversation Peace (Stream)”
Beautiful sounds from Raw Poetic and Damu the Fudgemunk, as they bring us a new video from their recent album, which they made alongside jazz legend, Archie Shepp. It’s basically a jazz album, but with the added energy of Raw Poetic’s lyrics, which are delivered over a series of improvised recording sessions. Tulips is one of the gems to be found on Ocean Bridges, and you can hear the remainder of the album below. It’s also available to download and stream.

One of the more prolific artists of his generation returns with something of a surprise new project, as Blu and Washington-based production guru, Damu The Fudgemunk, unite to bring us, Ground & Water. The eight track release appeared on Friday, along with some additional notes from Damu where he explained that he felt that Blu was the storyteller who could bring the material to life. Raw Poetic makes a top notch appearance on Share The Love and there are equally strong contributions from Cashus King, Shawn Jackson, Yamin Semali and Local Blacc, who all drop in on Beast Mode. You can hear both those tracks, as well as the rest of the album, below and downloads are available via Bandcamp. Continue reading “Blu x Damu The Fudgemunk: Ground & Water (Stream)”
Nice bit of throwback rap from Raw Poetic and Damu the Fudgemunk, as they unleash another video from their latest collaboration, The Reflective Sea. The album marks another success for the Redefinition Records label and takes its deserved place among the abundance of solid releases that have emerged throughout the year. My Grown Up Rap family just posted a really insightful video with Raw Poetic & Damu, which you can find here. The album is out now on all digital platforms, with vinyl coming at the start of next year.
