We’d like to introduce to you Sebbtember a german beat-maker. His beats came to our attention while diggin’ Aphroe’s new track “XIII“. He is currently working on his new project featuring vocals by his friend ISND – the full guest appearance has not yet confirmed – but for definite it will be a excellent journey through the hip-hop genre.
You can now listen to some preview stuff ’bout the new EP and further releases. The free-release date is set to september this year – stay tuned!
P.S. thank you Sebb – your music is one of the reasons why bklyn is still on and diggin’.
Quasimoto first came to life on Madlib‘s personal beat tapes in the producer’s early years in Oxnard CA – private music, not meant for release, made for himself and a small circle of local smokers and their car stereos.
Yessir Whatever collects 12-tracks made by Madlib and Quasimoto over a roughly 12-year period. A few were released on rare & out-of-print vinyl, while a few others are previously unreleased, now mixed and mastered for the first time. Take two & pass. Yessir … whatever. Release date is June 18, 2013. Pre-order and digital available now, exclusively at Stones Throw.
With his latest full-length album, “PA2: The Director’s Cut”, slated for release this July via Soulspazm Records, Marco Polo is tiding fans over with the release of free album “Newport Authority 2″. The album features Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Das EFX, The Artifacts, and others - download for free here!
The “PA2: The Director’s Cut” drops July 2013 on Soulspazm Records. Check out the first single “G.U.R.U.” featuring Talib Kweli and DJ Premier here.
“The Newport Authority 2″ album was inspired by politics and industry bullsh*t that prevented this material from being included on PA2: The Director’s Cut. Shylow and I went in and created a separate album to hold people over until PA2 drops in July. Attached with Intro, interludes and fully mixed & mastered by Joe Nardone. With confidence I can say this is not a mix tape. It will also be available on vinyl LP via Fat Beats for the heads that appreciate physical product, because I still do. I’ve included songs I recorded with legends such as Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Tragedy Khadafi, Lil Fame and The Artifacts. But, I’ve also got joints on here with some talented up and comers such as First Division, MidaZ and Big Gutta. Plus the sh*t is free – so enjoy!” - Marco Polo
Jesse Futerman returns once more to complete his trilogy of free digital EPs for Jus Like Music Records with his Exquisite Basement EP.
Following on from “Super Basement” and “Fuse The Witches“, the new EP, “Exquisite Basement” exudes a grown sound from Jesse. Commencing with the house-like ‘Trouble Man’ – a glimpse into his more uptempo material – the EP showcases that typical Futerman dusty, jazz breaks soulful sound, but with more body and soul than ever before.
