Jaguar Skills - Hip Hop Till Ya Drop Mix (9/04/2010)

Digital Mystikz - BBC Radio 1 Experimental Mix (9/02/2010)

Four years ago, there wasn't a BBC Radio 1 Experimental show - Mary Anne Hobbs dwelled on the Breezeblock. In January 2006, MAH presented the Dubstep Warz (download HERE), a series of mixes from some of the seminal names in Dubstep, introducing myself and most of the world to this exciting new sound. I was personally hooked based on the strength of this show, and many of the DJs on this show, including Mala of the Digital Mystikz crew, are still my favorites today. On this week's Experimental show, MAH brought DMZ back for a special 45 minute throwdown. So many ill tunes in here from that camp. In these last episodes of BBC Radio 1 Experimental, it's good to hear Mary Anne revisit some of the vibes that helped shape the scene, alongside her continuing the forward-thinking future funk.

Crissy Criss - 30 Minute Dubstep Mix (9/02/2010)

Outside of DJing Drum & Bass around the world, Crissy Criss touches down on 1Xtra weekly. On this week's show, Criss dropped a special 30 minute dubstep mix, showcasing current gems and some serious dubplates, including Trolley Snatcha's "Pass Me By", which has been doing my head in over the last few weeks. If you're new to dubstep, you might want to grab this and see how the sound fits you - this is more of the dancefloor ragin' stuff. Enjoy.

J.Nic$ "Last Time"

J.Nic$ "Last Time" (prod. by Numonics): New monthly going down in Florida, and this track is the preview to that... "As a part of The Rising music series in Miami, J Nics has teamed up with fellow Floridian, Numonics, for this new track entitled "Last Time". Over a chopped sample of Geraldo Pino's "Africans Must Unite", J Nics showcases his trademark delivery and cadence that has made him one of the most intriguing new artists to come from Florida. Paired with the signature sound of Numonics, "Last Time" is a reminder that you need to take advantage of every moment and opportunity because even if it's your first time, it may very well be your "Last Time"".

Junclassic "Still At It"

Junclassic "Still At It": First leak from Jun's mixtape with DJ Tre Unda, Mornings Was Hash Browns: "Lil while back my Brother DJ Tre Unda reached out to me to do a mixtape. When he named it Mornings Was Hash Browns I got nervous and excited. The title comes from a lyric Nas said on his StillMatic intro. Jadakiss also named a freestyle after the lyric and went IN. Being the Nas fanatic that I am, I decided it would be dope if I laced the Stillmatic Intro and even took it a step further by dropping the mixtape on Sept 14, 2010".

Rosenberg's Podcast Round-Up (9/01/2010)

I thought Peter Rosenberg's Narduwar conversation from the other day was going to be the latest podcast type thing from him this week. See, for some reason I think myself and Rosenberg would be good Hip-Hop friends, but we don't speak - mainly b/c, well, who the fuck wants to talk to me? I still respect the fuck out of the shit he gets into, from the TNA Official Non Stop Podcast to Juan Epstein to his various other gigs. Well, today a new episode of Juan Ep was posted, as well as Episode 2 of the Hype Men Podcast, which features Peter. Hit the jump for the goods.

Che Grand with The Lessondary "Star (Pimps In Canada In 3D)": We previewed a few tracks last week, but now Che links up with Von, Don and Spec on this final leak from The Fixtape Two, which is set to drop tomorrow. I don't like that this blast didn't say what they were spitting over - I'm not smart enough to know if this is an original beat or what. I don't know, but I love it. Got some good red wine in me (word to Andrew J Martin), and this is speaking to me.

Nevermind. Watch for this tomorrow.

Black EL x Durkin Color Commentary

Good to see Black EL getting the props he deserves, and on this Durkin-produced album is so necessary right now. Glad there's only a few features (Outasight, Jelani, Jon Hope), so EL can really flex his muscle and showcase how dope of a union he and Durk are. Hit the jump.

KingPen Slim The Beam Up 2: So Cinematic

This one's been a long time coming- don't sleep on KingPen Slim at all. Another DMV representer dropping another street/Internets album on your asses today, via DJ Booth. Shouts to Langston for the continuous updates on this niggra and his project. Hit the jump.

RAtheMC Heart Of A Champion

RA's been representing the DMV for a minute, so I hope you lot haven't slept on her skills. This new album, brought to you by DJ Booth and 2DBz, showcases many different sides of her chi, and is light on the features, which is great. No need to muddy up the fire with a lot of other MCs - no diss to anyone out there. Anyways, hit the jump for the tracklist and download link.

M-Dot ft. Torae, Chino XL, B.A.M. & Lyric Jones "Be Easy"

M-Dot ft. Torae, Chino XL, B.A.M. & Lyric Jones "Be Easy" (prod. by DJ Jean Maron): M-Dot & Jean Maron's Run MPC (great title) was released today - and it's a banger.

Domo Genesis Rolling Papers

Newest/latest/most awaited from the Odd Future camp is Domo Genesis' Rolling Papers. It's about exactly what you'd think it is, and is produced by Tyler, The Creator & Left Brain. You know what you should do before, during and after rockin' to this one, so do so then do so.

L Dash "Paper Boy"

L Dash "Paper Boy": Forgive me for being a mark for video game references. This track isn't even that dope - it's not terrible, but the Paper Boy plays aligned with that cover? Yeah, I'll check for the project, which features beats from SMKA. Big up the ATL.

Skyzoo & !llmind "Speakers On Blast"

Skyzoo & !llmind "Speakers On Blast": I already hit you with the cover and tracklist for Sky & Ill's Live From The Tape Deck album, which is due out on October 5th; now peep the lead-single from this album. Sick, sick track. Video on the way soon...

Justin Bieber ft. Kanye West & Raekwon "Runaway Love (Remix)"

Justin Bieber ft. Kanye West & Raekwon "Runaway Love (Remix)": Hey, sue me. I'm not mad at this... at all. Let's break it down: 'Ye already jacked RZA's chipmunk Soul samples, why not completely jack "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuttin' Ta Fuck Wit"? Why not jack a bunch of Wu lines? Why not have Raekwon come in and revisit the "Freek'n You (remix)"? Why not have Beibs do whatever he does over this? It's 2010 - in the era of mash-ups, this really isn't that insane... right?

I'll be rockin' this all week. Sue me. Shouts to Nah Right.

The Closers ft. Punchline, El Da Sensei, F.T., Phantasm & Nine "The Seventh Inning Stretch"

The Closers ft. Punchline, El Da Sensei, F.T., Phantasm & Nine "The Seventh Inning Stretch" (prod. by Thorotracks): Dot Got It kind of went in for this one, so I'll let the press release speak... "The Closers (Red Eye, Shabaam Sahdeeq,Thorotracks), Punchline (eMC), El Da Sensei (Artifacts), F.T. (Street Smartz), Phantasm (Cella Dwellas) & Nine. You read that right. All those highly respected MC's on one track. & The Closers proudly present The Seventh Inning Stretch. With it's distinct 90's feel, The Seventh Inning Stretch accomplishes what many artists have previously tried and failed at. A throwback vibe with 2010 lyrics and attitude. This track, already considered classic, takes seven heavily decorated MC's and just let's them go for a home run derby on the beat".

Dub Kweli

Following up on the awesome Mos Dub project, producer Max Tannone has hooked up a similar remix compilation with Mos' Black Star bredren, Talib Kweli, entitled Dub Kweli. You know how to properly enjoy this... so, light up ya spliff, throw this on, open the windows and let the good vibes hit you!


Good BIZ "I'm Ready"

Good BIZ "I'm Ready" [clean | dirty]: Hah, nice interpretation of this recent Alicia Keys single. They flip Lauryn's hook from "Ready Or Not" atop Alicia's soothing jawn, expounding on how its their time. GDBZ remind me of that Fugees stee, so the use of Ms. Hill is dumb perfect. Word is a video for this one is on the way, so keep it locked, always.

Killa Kyleon "Bun B For President"

Killa Kyleon "Bun B For President": A lot of heads have been hype for J Cole's "Bun B For President", so it only makes sense that someone from that area puts it on for Bun. Bun B > Obama in 2012?
