Coachella 2012 Line-Up

Severe lack of Drum & Bass (save for acts like Nero, NOISIA, Sub Focus and others whod abble in more than DnB), but a pretty stacked line-up. araabMUZIK and Company Flow might be the real treats. Coachella on FB for more details.

Two EPs From Deal - The Villain

Read more » | No Comments »

The boy @Deal_TheVillain been talking about that The People's EP for a minute, and he laced me with it last week (if you heard "Deal Cornelius", you already know). He also flipped an instrumental jawn, The DTV Beat EP, including some serious beats (highlighted by the instrumental for "Caveman Boogie"). As you can see, we've been charting the god for a bit, so to be able to (re)present two EPs, for $free.99? Had to jump at the opportunity. High quality ridiculousness. Effortless. If DTV isn't on your "niggas to watch" list, you better get a late pass, you hockeypucks! Hit the jump for both projects.

#SevenQuestions: Dallas Penn

Read more » | 4 Comments »

If you're not up on the movement that is @Dallas_Penn in 2012, you might seriously need to consider dragging a razor across a major vein and ending it all. If you're using the term Internets, you probably heard someone who heard someone who fucks with DP.com say it. He's a true pioneer in the Interconnected Hip-Hop Networks, and someone whom I consider an inspiration. I asked him some questions, and he obliged. Simple.

St Joe Louis ft. Rasheed Chappell & Peter Hadar "A Days Life"

No Comments »

LinkWord is that the SJL trio held a number of open studio dates, dubbing the collective that rolled through The Upstart Cloud Club. One particular session birthed this cut, which really showcases Elete Wright's production, and the varying MCs bring their own tale of having and the realization of losing what you had. You've all felt it. Let these niggas bring light to your emotions.

Skrewtape ft. Tone Liv, Mr. Fickle & Sol Zalez "Legendary Status"

No Comments »

Well shit. This track right here? Imagine some of my favorite MCs from this summer's Garden Variety shows in Trenton, all on one creeper of a beat. Wait, that's EXACTLY what this is! Underground to the core, but all four of these cats are beasts with theirs. Might need to start it from zero and let this one soak in a few times. Skrew's Skumbag Millionaires LP is due out sometime in the near future.

Main Course & Sky 7th "Orphans"

No Comments »

If you fucked with The KhemLab, Main Course and Sky 7th should be two MCs that you're more than aware of. These two were all over the album, and for good reason. In any case, Main is prepping his A Beautiful Blend album, which should be dropping on the 13th of February. The full project is produced by Soundproof, and this one is just wild. Love how this track has an undercurrent of hype to it, but flows at its own pace. These two don't waste a bar at all. KhemLab 2012 and onward. Get involved.

The new school is still bringing that new cool. 22 year-old J.Nolan and 18 year-old Reese Jones are dropping an EP on the 16th of January entitled The Archetype, and this cut is the first fruit from their union. This is some dope shit to fuck with during the winter cold. Like I see the video with Nolan spitting this with the winter clouds spewing from his mouth with each line, Reese in the background banging HARD on his machine for beat making. Love the switch-ups on this one. Can't wait for the EP, truth be told.

The Combat Jack Show ft. Dallas Penn (1/04/2012)

No Comments »

Let me keep it trill with you: I was tired as shit last night. Proof (which, by the way, isn't an awkward position to find me in, but shit, trying to keep up a few things can do that to a nigga). When the Combat Jack show featuring Dallas Penn got pushed back from10PM to 11PM for its 2012 return, I knew I wasn't going to make it. And of course, I was definitely in bed by 11:30PM, so I didn't get to hear the mighty Bun B make his hiiipower appearance on the show, but if Jack was on his dean, and Bun was his usual self, this one can be nothing short of the best shit you'll hear this week month. Plus, no SoundCloud! Welcome Back!

The DJ Tim Dolla-produced instrumental here does what it says on the tin, as 2/3 of St. Joe Louis align with Al-Kayduh for some spooky shit. Listen to this shit when the lights are on, please. You might see some spirits and other spooky shit conjured up when this one emits from your bassbins. You can pre-order Favorite Demons right now, and be on the lookout for St. Joe Lotus (St. Joe Louis x Flying Lotus) as well. Jeezus.

Shouts to Nappy for kicking off 2012 with a redesign of his site and this sick mix. He asked myself and Zone3 (of THEFREAKBEAT, who also did the cover art) to give him our top 10 dubstep tracks. He added some of his favs and this mix was born. A number of my jawns of the year are included, as is an unreleased dubplate of Coki's as well. Tough mix, as per usual. Enjoy that.
