MADLIB – MIND FUSION: AFRICAN EARWAX

Only thirty copies of Madlib’s new mixtape ‘Mind Fusion: African Earwax’ were pressed, each one given its own unique, hand-drawn cover [designed by Jason Jagel].  The physical copies went on sale at Jagel & MF DOOM ‘Doomsday Show’ at Rappcats, LA last week, but have now made it online.  As always with Beat Konducta, and…

ODEENO – SANDWN

Hailing from Napoli, Vincenzo Martinelli [aka Odeeno] makes the kind of dusty instrumentals that have Hip Hop heads weak at the knees.  Following previous projects ‘MΔnd’ and ‘My Fem [Prt. 2]’, the Italian producer releases ‘Sandwn’, an eight track beat tape that incorporates his signature blend of Jazz instrumentation and Boom Bap percussion, as well as the obligatory samples…

THE INTERNET – EGO DEATH

We got very excited about the new album from The Internet as soon as we heard the Kaytranada-produced ‘Girl‘ earlier this year.  ‘Ego Death’ doesn’t disappoint, and is filled with the band’s signature mellow sound.  Although quite the star-studded affair [features include Janelle Monáe, Vic Mensa, James Fauntleroy, Kaytranda, Steve Lacy and Tyler, The Creator] they lose none…

THUNDERCAT – THE BEYOND/WHERE THE GIANTS ROAM

Shortly after releasing the Kamasi Washington-featured ‘Them Changes‘, Thundercat releases brand new short album ‘The Beyond/Where Giants Roam’.  It’s a superb collection of Jazz, Hip Hop and Neo-Soul that feels like a result of the wave that the vocalist/producer/bass player is currently riding after contributions to some of this year’s best albums so far [namely ‘To…

TCHEEP – NO BUDGET [VOLUME 1]

Tcheep is a French producer who has certainly won us over with previous release ‘Oasis Mechanic’ [featuring singles ch as ‘Opium Song’ and ‘Ethnic Fury’] in 2014 and is back with a brand new beat tape.  Tcheep continues his exceptional streak with the ‘No Budget [Volume 1]’.  While this album is Hip Hop at the core, there’s an ambient vibe…

REJJIE SNOW – ALL AROUND THE WORLD

‘All Around The World’ is the first we’ve heard from Rejjie Snow since his appearance on Jesse James Solomon’s ‘Jesse From SE‘.  The London-based Irishman recruits Chance, The Rapper for production on the new track, which is a laid-back affair vaguely reminiscent of The Neputunes.  Stream ‘All Around The World’, released via Honeymoon, below via…

AZEKEL – SOLD MY LOVE

With his upcoming EP ‘Raw, Vol.1′ due for release July 12 and a live slot at Glastonbury this weekend, Azekel releases new track ‘Sold My Love’.  The track follows ‘Mad About The Boy‘ as the second single from the East Londoner’s forthcoming EP, and showcases the R&B vocalist and producer’s tender, introspective side.  Stream the sultry new track below via SoundCloud.
