2018 is proving to be an exceptional year with so many dope projects dropping it’s hard to keep up with everything! The second half of the year will be no less hectic with full length albums coming from DJ Nice, Crimson, Sir Beans OBE & MC Kelz, Uzee The Bovvaking & Grolok Panicrum, These Handz, MG Gost & Hain Teny, a live instrumental project from Ruth Koleva – not to mention more 7 inch action on the way with George Fields and Venom (more announcements on that soon) and the 2nd vinyl LP campaign now in the works for ‘Waking Walk’ Instrumentals.
3CNB is a producer from Lithuania, now based in the UK and working on getting the best possible sound for his productions after many years of study. ‘Dilla Thanks’, an homage to one of the greatest Hip Hip producers ever to have lived, was created using samples and elements from Dilla’s work, with 3CNB’s additional melodies giving it the unique twist necessary.
‘Paying Homage to the Golden Era of Hip Hop’ by DJ Jaymob is a special album created by a producer (based in Orlando originally from NYC) who has been on the scene for more than 2 decades already, working with legendary emcees like MF DOOM, Kool Keith and Cappadonna and Wordsworth, who all feature here. An anthology of sorts, Jaymob deserves huge respect for bringing together so many of his connections to pay homage in this way.
Individu & Wispo, a duo from Luxembourg released their album ‘Pulsions’ back in 2015. Individu raps in French working together with Wispo on providing the production. Another great addition to the family, we look forward to an extended reissue of ‘Pulsions’, as well as the Instrumentals which is dropping tomorrow.
Also on the boil we have A Strange Man Called Seb’s debut 12 inch release, Door People/Dorset Diction, a UK banger with production by Easy B and Vosn from Belgium and Poland respectively. The test pressings sound heavy and we can look forward to the vinyl later this year. Stay tuned and be sure to check the action on bandcamp!
