Tef Poe "Exodus 23:1 Freestyle"

No Comments »


My niggas don't waste NO TIME, do they?! Tef Poe had some shit on his brain, apparently, and felt that recent Pusha T "Exodus 23:1" jawn was the perfect sound to express himself with. He drops some jewels, gems and gold bars all over that beat, too. War Machine 2 drops June 5th, and has features from Royce da 5'9, Killer Mike, I-20, Rockwell Knuckles and plenty more. Poebama says he got backing now, so you best be scurred.

The Accomplices ft. Guilty Simpson, MaG, D.Randle, D.Rose & TWICE "The Burner"

Read more » | No Comments »

Cats don't want to listen to me when I speak, so I hope my boys The Accomplices (aka producers BroadNMarket & The Jake) dropping The 10-90 EP through The Wanderer and DJ Booth on June 6th will make you guys listen up. Need proof? Peep how effortlessly guys like Guilty Simpson, MaG, D.Randle, D.Rose & TWICE murder this one. My Lord. Been trying to tell you dudes, these two are problems on the beat. This premiered on DJ Booth the other day, but if you slept then - DON'T SLEEP NOW! It's as good as it gets! Hit the jump for the full tracklist for this EP - looks like Mikkey Halsted, theBREAX and Co$$ (among others) are on the regular version, with J.Gunn and my niggas Deal - The Villain and Tom Chase on the premium version. Go in!

Big Narstie "Tangerine Freestyle"

No Comments »

As a bit of promo before the release of SRC's Tangerine EP on June 29th, Cable got the one like Big Narstie to kick some bars over the title track. Nothing but pure unadaulterated Grime vibes. Nothing to be afraid of at all. Now if I can only get some of you American spitters on board, it'd be a WRAP! Cop the EP when they drop it.

No Comments »

I guess those free tunes were just a teaser for what Loadstar had on deck. Release info on these is scarce, but Ram's good with giving the goods up in timely fashion. Heads like me are messing with that tune "Bomber", but I have a feeling the summertime crew will be into "Passenger", with its epic piano intro and glitched-out drop. More of that drumstep flavor. Where's their album doe?!

Cyrano Sinatra ft. Various Artists "The Beast! (NC Roll Call)"

No Comments »

Check this one out: Cyrano Sinatra sorted out a proper North Carolina-specific posse cut version of "Beast", which was found on The KhemLab project (and is produced by the homey Centric). This new version is found on Ladies Choice Entertainment's the manifestation of h​.​e​.​r. mixtape, and features Flauce, Seven da Pantha, AP the Apostle, Poe Mack, Lyrick & Sharp. I'm glad they did the original justice and kept the original beat in tact. Shit's still disgusting.

D-Man ft. Skibby Contae "We On It"

No Comments »

Been a minute since I got some new music from the homey D-Man, and this one is hectic. Love the low-end on this one, and the bars add a different element to it. This won't be found on D-Man's The Parcae project, but shit this crazy? You can't keep it locked. Be on the lookout for an untitled EP from D-Man and producer G-Way; that's on the way very soon. Might need to fill your cup and scream on them ho's to this!

Kanye West "Way Too Cold (Krusha Remix)"

1 Comment »


Per eskay, it looks like "Way Too Cold" isn't even the final name on this one, but doesn't matter to Krusha - he went in with the drumstep remix on this one.He pitches up Kanye's track and gives it a fly vibe for the dancefloor. The Planet Human SoundCloud page says UNLOCK YOUR FREE DOWNLOAD, but doesn't indicate HOW this can be done and links are up now, for Facebook and Twitter unlocking. Wild westside vibe in this one, though - not to mention some DJ Kool samples thrown in for good measure. Need more like this. EDIT Looks like this one got taken off their SoundCloud - here's a backup link.

Ulterior Motive - FABRICLIVE x Ram x Subtitles Mix

No Comments »

Here's another one of those DnB promo mixes for a DnB night; on June 8th, RAM is taking over FABRICLIVE, with Rooms 1 and 2 rammed (pun intended) with the likes of Andy C, Loadstar, DJ Die B2B Bryan Gee (!!), Mensah, Brookes Brothers, DC Breaks, Hamilton, Mind Vortex, MJ Cole and plenty more. Room 3 is being hosted by Subtitles (although oddly enough, TeeBee is signed with Calyx to Ram, and Subtitles is his imprint, but he's nowhere on this bill), which has Ulterior Motive alongside Chris SU, Fracture, Dose and Xtrah. Serious sounds here, hit the event page if you're, you know, in London.

Wally Pish Posh - Fun For The Whole Family

No Comments »

Rather unexpected gift from the homey DJ WAlly Pish Posh. He's always making beats, and is truly one of my favorite producers - from like the mid '90s on up. I kind of wish he was seeing the same acclaim he was getting back when Genetic Flaw dropped. Might need to dig that one back out. In any case, here's a dope batch of tracks from one of the dons of the underground. Cuts like "Home Drone", "1992" and "NY Horns" stand out to me dumb early. Fucks with this.

Rickie Jacobs - Live Epic

Read more » | No Comments »

This week's too long and I haven't had a beer yet, so I'll let Buck walk you through Rickie Jacobs' latest: "When it comes to life, are you actually living? Or are you allowing death to approach you slowly but surely? You do, in fact, only live once and within the hour of your birth and the hour of your death, it is up to you, and only you, to live it up before your time is up! With the aim to make history while his heart continues beating and his thoughts remain racing, Rickie Jacobs presents the next chapter of his story, which takes you on a ride through his soul and in turn, you can attempt to see life as he sees it through his own eyes! After all, before you can Die Brilliant, you must first Live Epic! What's your life like?"

[preview] Sinistarr - Cetra EP

No Comments »

So glad to see URB pick up on Sinistarr's Cetra EP, which is forthcoming on Hit & Hope in June, I believe. Early support has already come from Sinden, Om Unit, Crissy Murderbot and Goldie, and for good measure, especially considering this is the first batch of non-DnB cuts the public has heard from this Detroit beatsmith. He digs into his roots, as well as delving into the Footwork side of things with "Bear The Mark" (which I've had for a minute and am glad it's seeing the light of day). The title cut has a chilled, Garage-y vibe, but "Runna" is the one IMO. Dope Hip-Hop vibe to it. You're not ready. Included in this preview is a Tailor Hawkins remix of "Cetra", but I don't believe that's on the final EP. Anyone looking to interview or feature Sinistarr more in depth, shoot me an e-mail. For the time being, check out Sinistarr's mix for the Sub.Mission Podcast, and be on the lookout for his mixtape alongside Disc Jockey Nappy.

Yo shouts out to BTK. Quiet as kept, I was trying to put out a little bootleg BTK did that ended up getting released for free. In any case, he's been making a LOT of noise with Optiv (who you trainspotters might know as one of them Cause 4 Concern boys), and they have an album, Dirty Tricks, set to drop on Virus in the near future. They stepped up for the Black Sun Empire podcast and drop a serious a mount of tracks, mostly their bits. You aren't ready. And if you're in Belgium on July 23rd, hit up BSE's Blackout night, which will find these two going B2B.

This is the kind of Drum & Bass my mom would fucks with. Not sure what made soulTec & B-Pro pick up on this Who Is Jill Scott number, but this shit works. I believe there was a Drum & Bass bootleg of "Love Rain" from a decade ago, and I'm surprised more producers don't remix her shit. In the liquid era, where you want your somber bangers to feature some sultry vocals, Jill Scott should be the go-to, right? Anyways, fucks with this.

Another one in the chamber. Minus Just Blaze, Premium Pete and Dallas Penn, you'd think this episode wouldn't bring the normal funnery, but that first half hour is pure hilarity. AZ stopped by, and to quote Combat Jack, "The Visualizer AZ talks about his start in the game, battling Jay-Z in high school, NaS and Illmatic, Doe Or Die, the Firm, Sprite commercials and his interesting relationship with elevators. Industry legend DEO speaks on his cousin, the late, great Heavy D and his thoughts on today’s music industry. Plus, a call from Trill O.G. Bun B on the Gumball 3000. It don’t ever stop. #AZWon".

Talk about random. If I'm not mistaken, Knuckle Children is an AKA from the GEIN boys. They normally rock some pretty intense Drum & Bass, so to hear them crunch out some heavyweight THUGSTEP vibes?

Ant TC1 - Fabric Promo Mix (May 2012)

Looks like Ant TC1 is touching down at Fabric this Friday in Room 2 (alongside Bukem, Fabio and Furney) and cooked up this mix, which he describes as "a bit deeper than usual, 50% vinyl 50% CDJ's recorded on Technics's 1210's, CD1000 & Pioner DJM 800 mixer". He drops some Dispatch bits (obviously), including cuts from the Method In The Madness album, which looks like it might be serious.
