HOMEBOY SANDMAN – PROBLEMS

With his upcoming album ‘Hallways’ due for release September 9, Homeboy Sandman releases ‘Problems’.  Produced by Knxwledge, the track sees Boy Sand get a few things off his chest about girls, hipsters, passive smoking and rhyming over some laid-back, off-kilter production.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

TCHEEP – OPIUM SONG

Back in May, French producer blew us away with his unique and quite frankly outrageous brand of ‘Oriental Trap’ on ‘Oasis Mechanic‘.  A few months down the line and he’s still hard at it, this time fusing the kind of instrumentation you’d find soundtracking a scene from Middle Eastern opium den, with the kind of…

KEMBE X – AS I UNFOLD [FT. AB-SOUL & ALEX WILEY]

We admit it – we completely slept on Kembe X’s self-titled EP, which was released via Scion AV a fortnight ago.  Track number four on the five-track project is the sublime ‘As I Unfold’, which features a verse from TDE’s Ab-Soul and Kembe X’s Chicago cohort Alex Wiley.  The track has now been given the visual treatment, which…

The general trend in modern R&B towards a down-tempo, ‘future’ style has lead to artists breaking incredible new ground. However, with upbeat production from Dee Lilly, Alexus goes in the complete opposite direction to bring us a refreshingly…

BUSDRIVER – KING COOKIE FACED

Busdriver first appeared on our radio with the incredible, Aesop Rock & Danny Brown assisted ‘Ego Death‘.  Since then we’ve seen the trippy visuals for ‘Colonize The Moon‘ and now ‘King Cookie Faced’, which is similarly unorthodox.  What we love about Busdriver is that he doesn’t really fit in a box: his delivery ranges between…

LUKE BONDS – FRAME

Over the past months, we’ve really heard Barbadian producer Luke Bonds hone his craft, as he cements his instrumental niche.  His latest drop, ‘Frame’ begins with the airy, effortlessly chilled ‘everybody.feels.this.way’, takes you through the abstract, crackling Jazz of ‘Cereal’, before taking a harder, bassier turn over the last two tracks ‘Unreel’ and ‘Green Curtain’.  Stream below via…
