More gold on the way from the Village, as Benaddict, Ella Mae and Slim unite their ample talents for Teal. The pre-orders went live last night and considering how popular all Village Live’s other releases have been, you would be wise to make your move soon.
Benaddict and Ella already worked together on The Garden of England, so I can vouch for their chemistry on a track. Along with the addition of Slim’s relaxed yet intricate production, Teal looks set to be another must have. There is a little preview mix from Evil Ed, which you can stream below and then head over to the Village Live store to get your orders in. The official release date is 28 August.

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.

Nice serving of hip hop and soul fusion from Remulak’s new LP, Earth. Passing Time features beautiful vocals from Australian singer, Melody Myla. You can cop the full album here.

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.

Another great video from the equally great Gas-Lab album, which was recently released on Village Live Records. This particular joint features Brooklyn MC, Traum Diggs, following on from a few older collaborations between the two. The Fusion LP is available to buy 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 »

The ever dope Village Live Records have another strong release coming soon, courtesy of Argentinian producer, Gas-Lab. He’s also a talented instrumentalist, as this video for Chemistry demonstrates. Definitely one to watch out for. The full project, Fusion, is out on 3 March with pre-orders available here.
