Tom Chase The Traveler

Without his knowledge, Tom Chase's The Traveler EP has been leaked on the Internets. From what I hear, someone was mad about something regarding this project. I don't know, I just peep shit that's on your Interneticals and put it on my blog. iPod stay on charge. and Deal - The Villain and Daniel Joseph guest feature on this worldwide experimentational, actual factual international smashin' you. Shit's dope, but it's EA (who will be in NY on September 27th), so you already know what the shit that is.

B Traits - Digital Soundboy Showcase Guest Mix

That B Traits, she's an elusive character. Shy FX snagged her and threw her under his wing in his Digital Soundboy camp. She's Canadian, is a talented DJ, but hasn't dropped any tunes yet. I've been trying to interview her for Dogs On Acid, but we'll probably have to wait for that. This mix for Annie Nightingale dropped a few days ago, and is a special Digital Soundboy Showcase, featuring cuts like "Raver", "Speechless" and a big batch of tunes from heads like Benga, Breakage, Kutz, Skream, Benny Page, Fresh and Shy himself. Love this!

Cy Yung "Waiting"

Cy Yung "Waiting" (prod. by J. Slikk): Time for a lil' exclusive from the BPA camp, who somehow got a spark and are lining things up for the remainder of 2010. They recently dropped that Gloria Celemente mixtape, and now we get this fresh throwback sounding jam from Slikk and Cy. Speaking to Slikk earlier this evening, he says that you can expect something new from the BPA crew every Friday, nahmean? Soul Train Dancer is set to drop in October, on the 12th of October, AKA the 5th anniversary of the first ever BPA album (Foreign Currency 1), with Foreign Currency 2 looking to drop in December. Slikk has an untitled EP ready to go in November, and I'm still waiting for ROE to sort out his mixtape. But enough of all that, love this backpackin' jam right here.

The Sole Vibe Presents One to Grow On

Here's a grip of (mostly) new material from the boy Mario Dones and the one like AV. This is done by design, showcasing whatagwanzon with these two, over beats by Keelay & Zaire, DJ Whooligan and more, with features from Kam Moye, Slo-Mo and all. Enjoy that.

Solid Steel (9/17/2010)

Ninja Tune turns 20 years old this year, and I feel like I need to represent. back when I was really trying to figure out what the fuck I was into, musically, Ninja Tune had this ill combination - DIY culture mixed with Jazz samples thrown against Hip-Hop/DJ culture with a proper amount of abstract nuttiness thrown in for good measure. Cats like The Herbaliser, Coldcut, DJ Food, The Cinematic Orchestra, Luke Vibert, Mr. Scruff and plenty more had releases and albums that were the soundtrack(s) to my high school years. For this special edition of Solid Steel, DK mixes up a grip of Ninja's finest, and we get a special interview with Coldcut themselves!

Roots Manuva & Wrongtom Duppy Writer Mini-Mix

Pop Matters got the exclusive on this Mini-Mix of Roots Manuva and Wrongtom's Duppy Writer album, which is one of my favorites from 2010: "British rapper Roots Manuva hooks up with producer Wrong Tom for a collection of remixes of tracks from previous Manuva albums. They play about with the titles as well as the music (full track list is listed after the jump). The album, Duppy Writer, released on 6 September in the UK and is coming out 21 September in the US via Big Dada. The label has released this mini-mix sampler for the album to whet your appetite. Heavy on the dub, Duppy Writer features a new tune from Roots Manuva and Ricky Ranking called “Jah Warriors” among all the re-imagined songs".

The Art Of Ritchmixing: A K. Sparks Adventure

"The Art Of Ritchmixing: A K. Sparks Adventure" is the epic tale of one mans journey (Ritchcraft's Journey) from remix mediocrity to remix supremacy. K. Sparks helps lead Ritchcraft to the promised land of remix supremacy with the countless acapella's he has so generously bestowed upon young Ritchcraft.

Action Figures "You"

Action Figures "You" (prod. by Knowledge): The Action Figures supergroup consists of UllNevaNo and J-Berd on the mic, with Knowledge and DJ Minus Nine on the boards. This is a leftover from their Fresh Out The Box release, but they have a new album on the way. Shit sounds like a bunch of superheroes flying over an urban metropolis, fighting crime and shit.

Udachi "Swagger" Promo Mix

Palms Out Sounds has recently put out Udachi's "Swagger", and got trigger happy... they gave away the instrumental, the Baobinga remix AND this 32 minute mixtape, which is perfect for your Friday follies: "The first proper release on Palms Out from long time cohort, Udachi, "Swagger" features the stylings of fellow Staten Islander, iBeat. It's a charged tropical joyride through new york heavy bass hop, kuduro and rave. An impeccable remix package is started off by the UK's Baobinga, who gives the original a purple synth tinged juke dicing, full of 808 bottom and tom tom galore. Kansas City's Tactic turn in an ultra modern dembow remix, while Trouble & Bass's own AC Slater delivers a heavy bass stomper for the ages. Not one to get lost in the mix, Sweden's Andreas Bygdell (1/4 of The Touch) delivers a sexy saxophone based bumpy house version, with the the naughtiest breakdown imaginable. Last up, Johnny Love aka. Deathface formerly of Guns n Bombs, takes us out with a bang - a monstrous, dark dubstep version. Also incl! uded is an instrumental version. Original Crumb inspired artwork by John Dessereau".

Jon Connor "Epic"

Jon Connor "Epic": When I saw the name, I immediately saw a cyborg with half of it's face ripped off, with a shottie in its hand. This cat from Flint, MI flow crazy. Seriously. I didn't know what to expect, honestly, but he coasts over, under, inside, into this beat. And isn't just jibber-jabbering - he's got some shit to say. This is taken from his forthcoming mixtape, Jon Connor as Vinnie Chase Season 1, and he's co-signed by the BoBO crew, so give it a spin!

Juan Epstein (9/16/2010)

This episode emphasizes why I like John Cena: when they call dude the face of the WWE, it's not bullshit. He's a charmer, but he's also real. He speaks his mind and isn't afraid of explaining why he fucks with the company on a business level; he's also funny and a Hip-Hop head. You hear how they recorded a grip of bits for the morning show, and get to chat with Cena about a bunch of other things, including Legendary, his latest film.

I remember when MTV would show SQUiRT TV, Jake Fogelnest's proper introduction into the popular culture. I'd spend late Sunday nights watching this guy talking shit, interviewing artists and having them play in his bedroom on TV! I was a fan, and it's been great to see him branch off into radio and TV, among other things. The Hype Men pulled him in for Episode 4. Enjoy.

501 - Guest Mix For MistaJam (9/07/2010)

Like three or so years ago, I was just an assistant editor over at Dogs On Acid. One of my first pieces was working on an article for Primetime Records, and one of my main points of contact was Contour, who was sorting things out before he had to take a break from everything. Oddly enough, I had no idea that that DnB artist was actually the latest dubstep phenom, 501. Last week, he dropped a hectic guest mix for MistaJam's show, and I'm glad I'm able to drop this on you guys today. Some tough riddims on here, trust. You see a release form 501, grab it. Love how he blends really great melodies with some sick basslines. That's all I need, you know?

Fresh mixtape from Dregs and Equipto out of San Francisco. If you fuck with that Left Coast chill, this should be right up your alley.

Check out the text they gave on this release: "The first new music to emerge from Shadow's as-yet-untitled 2011 album. "Def Surrounds Us" is an electro/dubstep/dnb-inspired epic that manages to deliver more than the sum of its influences; "I've Been Trying" is an intricately-crafted, soulful jam that goes down like molasses. Both are beasts, and both are classic Shadow. Free download for 24 hours". Get on this NOW!

Skream "Mosh Bag" [radio rip]

Skream "Mosh Bag [radio rip]": You should've seen me dropping a lot more radio shows from across the pond on RTD, as I've become enamored with the Kiss100 Dubstep Show with Crazy D & Hatcha. On their September 1st broadcast, I got introduced to this TOUGH slice of dubstep that was just ID'd as "Scream - Untitled - Dub"; I can't have that, LOL. I actually had lunch with DJ Nappy this past Friday and had it playing on the Berry, and he was like "I need this" and I told him I didn't know the name of it. He was like "how can this be?" and I explained the lack of details, but oddly enough, I found their September 8th broadcast, where this tune had an actual name! No word on when this drops, but when it does, I'm all over it. You ever used an old typewriter, where when you got to the end of the line, you had to push the top all the way to the left so you could start at the beginning of the next line? That what this feels like, to me. And hearing Crazy D hit that "yeeeeah!" around 38 seconds in, the first time I heard that!?!? I already had the proper screwface, so I imagine he was smelling it, too. Sick tune, yeah!?

DeeDotMillz What I Learned From Summer Vacation

Not too long after dropping The Title You Expected, the homey @DeeDotMillz has dropped a new mixtape to commemorate what he's picked up during this Summer. I have a mix that I need to figure out/finish for the Autumn, and oddly enough, it's all about sounds that I was either influenced by or picked up on this summer. ANYWAYS, this Detroit spitter combines lyrical skill with unadulterated aggression, wit and overall skill into this one, and breaks down a number of topics, from the inner turmoil within his town to the inner turmoil within himself. Awesome work, fam. This tape is sponsored by SIGNEDTOYOU and The Aberration.
