The Primeridian ft. Tyenza, Yaw & Merci "Yesterday (The Inauguration Song)" (prod. by Nez & Rio): Gotta love how you hear less and less original music like this from established stars, but the cats on the underground have the time to unleash heat that has a message for free! Maybe we can see that shift under our new BLCKPRSDNT.

Shouts to Pugs Atomz for hitting me with this.

Junk Science "Running Shoes"

No Comments »

Junk Science "Running Shoes": This is the first of a series of free joints from Junk Science, who are prepping the releases of their third studio album, A Miraculous Kind Of Machine. Here is Baje One's thoughts on the track, from the press release...

"I think I basically spent a lot of time during the last 8 years, really the majority of my 20's, wishing the aliens would just beam me up already. Not to blame it on Bush and them, but let's face it, it hasn't been the most inspiring 8 years in American history. On the night that Obama won, we hit the streets and rocked out like the word 'whoooo!' was going to be outlawed the next day."

"As we drank beers in Fort Greene that night, I realized that here was a party worth inviting the aliens down for. A real deal human celebration. That it wasn't about 'beam me up' anymore, that it was about 'come on down.' Just the possibility alone that things could be different than they were before, that was enough for me. So that's where this song comes from. It's an Obama song that has nothing to do with politics."

"I like the title 'Running Shoes' because to me it represents two opposing but connected ideas. On one hand, running shoes are empowering, they allow you to move, to get to new places, like wings. On the other hand, running shoes could be what you use to escape from reality: drugs, alcohol, sex, violence, etc."

"So for me this song is really about the crossroads, the Ides, the night before something new. A song for the brief intermission. I hope you like it."

Krhome ft. Junclassic "Yes"

No Comments »

Krhome ft. Junclassic "Yes": I remember Jun sending me the unmixed version of this a few days after Election Day 2008. It's a dope ode from a dope MC. It's now on an EP from Krhome... here's the details on this release:

Krohme - The Onset of Change

Produced entirely by Krohme with a deliberate throwback sound, the album features artists addressing issues that range from our first Black president to the current state of America, these days mark the onset of change. The EP features (in alphabetical order) Atari Blitzkrieg, Breez Evahflowin, Cadence, Junclassic, L.I.F.E. Long, Little Indian, Respect Tha God & Speech.

The EP will be available for free at www.godsendant.com until Feb. 1 when it goes out on the digital spots additional tracks and with 100% of the profits of the album going to Bright Beginnings Inc. A DC based organization that is dedicated to meeting the immediate needs of children and families living in homeless environments.

Additional Information on Bright Beginnings, Inc.:

Bright Beginnings, Inc. was established in 1991 by the Junior League of Washington, who identified a critical need for quality childcare among homeless families in Washington, D.C. Since then, Bright Beginnings have met the needs of over 1,500 homeless children by providing families with childcare and on-site therapeutic and family support services.
http://www.brightbeginningsinc.org/about.htm

That's some selfless ish. Props to Krhome and Jun for this one.

Articulate "I Wish"

No Comments »

Articulate "I Wish" (prod. by Rickie Jacobs): Peep the Rickie Jacobs-produced "I Wish", "reflecting on Obama's election and the people who didn't make it to see our first black president". It's a shame when you realize how many Americans died for something like this to happen, and they can't be alive to witness it. These are special times, people, remember that.

DJ Vinroc Beat Freaks Preview

1 Comment »

I think I'm on my "late 90's turntablism" shit today. My copy of Sunglasses Is A Must came in, and I got an e-mail from Keelay about this Beat Freaks project from one of the illest turntablists ever, DJ Vinroc:

Beat Freaks is a hodge podge of production work from the mind of Dj Vinroc. a collection of a simplistic collage of samples reinterpreted through a drum machine, Vinroc's influences and experience can be easily seen as that of a true fan of Hip Hop. A compilation of pre released, unheard, and never released tracks, Beat Freaks is intended for the true beat aficionado who can appreciate the grit, simplicity, and beauty of Hip hop music.

Here are a few samples from this disc:


He also sent a link to the following short film, documenting that making of "Believe":



Beat Freaks dropped on Jan. 14th, and is available on iTunes now!

Mos Def "Quiet Dog": Shake says this is the 2nd single from Mos' forthcoming Ecstatic LP. I say I am feeling it. Sounds like a banger that took a trip to the juke joint. Nice swing in that beat, and Mos kicks it effortlessly.

RAtheMC, Fred Knuxx, Balance & Wordsmith "Freestyle" (prod. by Judah): Props to Wordsmith for passing this fresh track to me. Looks like the new breed is a tight unit, and willing to go for broke. The Funkadelic Freestyles College Radio Semester Premiere is going down tonight (check out GW Radio from 8PM to 10PM), and features both Judah and RAtheMC, as well as And1's own Prime Objective. You see how Web 2.0 is bringing niggas together!?
