Having such a great, original and quirky first single can work against you. Die hard fans can be blinkered and not even give the song a look in, while those new to the artist/s involved may expect more of the same and little else from any album to come. An obvious meeting in the middle is the best way to please both and that is exactly what Rewd Adams & The Last Skeptik have done with ‘How Not To Make a Living’. Tracks like J.O.B and Monster Things keep the quirkier/more original end of the album alive while the ‘heads’ are well taken care of with what remains. Yet overall the project straddles that happy medium without losing a shred of credibility (which as history suggests is no mean feat). The Last Skeptik is a gifted, albeit underrated, beatsmith who will surely be a far busier man when this album is released. Rewd Adams has chosen just the right tactic of not attacking the beats as oppose to weaving in and out. A very polished MC who compliments the beats superbly. An original release with enough contemporary sounds to keep all and sundry more than satisfied. A definite recommend.
The Stuyvesants are back with another set of smooth remixes for your aural (and i did say aural) pleasure. Busta Rhymes, Common, M.O.P & 702 are among the remixed. Quite how these guys aren’t higher up the food chain in terms of beat requests is beyond me. Partake and enjoy!
….a freestyle. i have to admit that Oddisee’s beats are so outrageously off the chain that it usually takes my about 3 or 4 listens of his work to listen to what the man has to say. Metabeats got some Top quality on his upcoming album too. Von Pea, Action Bronson, Ralph Rip Shit, Elucid, the aforementioned Oddisee, Che Grand…….. Niceness!
Man! Who drew the awesome artwork for Pheonix Da Icefire’s The Quantum Leap? An intelligent Swagger backed by some banging beats (with a tinge of Dub), Klashnekoff, Kyza, Keith Murray (yep) & Cyrus Malachi all ad to what is a superb debut album. And to believe this came out in April! Where the hell have I been? Support, Support!!!!!
Super dope (how do I come up with this stuff) Jazz Hop based stuff from the MC & beatsmith duo. A mellow thoughtful backbone yet it’s a very easy listen. It’s FREE too so peep the evidence and pick it up. It’s all there after the break. Enjoy!
Originality, Wit, Humour, Charm, Braggadocio. Words that came to mind when i first clapped ears on Propa’s FREE album, I’m Up Now!!! Life through his lens is how i would describe where he is coming from lyrically and I would love to know who handles the production too as it is a fresh sound that does inspire memories of early roots manuva material. A great listen. Enjoy!
