Detroit producer and songwriter Christian Berishaj aka JMSN,  released his new album „JMSN (Blue Album)“. The LP is his second release since the debut „Priscilla“ back in 2012. Over the past years JMSN had some guest vocal-features, including Kendrick Lamar’s „Good Kid, m.A.A.d. city“, Ab-Soul’s „These Days“, and Tyga’s „Hotel California“.

 “The Blue Album is starting to take form and will continue to form in ways beyond myself. That’s what I love about music and life. It’s so unpredictable. It’s so fun to go with the flow of energy and watch things form as they always do.” JMSN

BADBADNOTGOOD are back … Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, and Alex Sowinski on drums. Since their inception at Humber College’s Music Performance program in 2011, the three have challenged the rule book on improvised instrumental music and taken jazz tradition into the future. With early champions including acclaimed BBC broadcaster Gilles Peterson and Tyler The Creator who helped fuel their discovery with a series of live jams that instantly went viral and dubbed them the “Odd Trio”, the band released their first EP ‚BBNG‘ in June 2011 to wide praise. The marriage of jazz virtuosity and hip hop source material offered a fresh take on the traditional “standard” applied to hip hop classics by taking on choice cuts from the golden era rap cannon and writing inspired arrangements for them instead of one-dimensional covers.

Madlib and Freddie Gibbs‚ new collaboration project „Piñata“ now arrived a the record stores. Pinata is “a gangster Blaxploitation film on wax,” Gibbs says, and the full-length result of a process that began in 2009.

Read the full interview and order the album on Rappcats.
